I will offer some thoughts.
But thats weird .
Have you tried a new driver? Yeah I know, that doesn't make a lot of sense to me if the image is fuzzy, but since it will print a internal pattern clear and not a print sent from the computer, the driver may be the issue. I stress MAY be the issue.
What I suspect more is the drum encoder. When I hear about that machine bluring, that is the most likely cause. It picks up silicon lubricant from the maintenance kit and normally causes blurrs.
It is on the right side of the machine ( viewed from the front), track it from the drum shaft. It has a clear plastic cover over it, but it needs to be cleaned with alcohol to disipate the silicon lubricant from it.
No no not drinking alcohol, although that can make prints blurry LOL.. Hope you have a sense of humor. To many people today don't....................

Xerox Phaser 8550 is printing green and yellow with some gray color on all the print job, even after I replaced the ink loader, the black color came back but still getting only green and yellow. The ink...


Try printing a light stripes test page (Troubleshooting, print quality problems, troubleshooting print quality page).
If you have loads of missing jets, run a couple of head cleans, if you see improvement, it is worth running some more, if not, try switching off overnight and rebooting next day. If it still won't clear, you may have a faulty printhead.
If you do not appear to have many missing jets but the colours are all just wrong it may be that the ink has gone stale. Run a couple of head cleans and you should see the colours start to improve. If it is getting better, all you can do is keep running head cleans until you have replenished all the ink in the printhead well.
Hope this helps.

Printing Phaser 8550


that is a part of that printer design. Something sadly you can not get rid of. Believe me, I have tried, and Xerox engineering told me that is part of how the machine is supposed to work. Wish we could eliminate that.

Xerox 8550 Printer Magenta ink not working.


You need to run the eliminate light stripes. it should be in the menu, under troubleshooting, print quality issues. you can run this up to 3 times. you want the run the basic light stripes, not the advanced. If after 3 times running this, you are still missing jets, your printhead is bad. If you are using aftermarket ink, media sciences might cover the repair, if not, the printhead costs as much as a new machine. about $650+labor.

Dark streaks


Hi,


You need to remove the maintanence kit and clean the wiper blades there and where the paper comes out of the machine at the top. See below and check when your maintenance kit runs out and how to replace it!

Problems with printer settings


Interesting. I tried printing a simple 3-page Excel spreadsheet sent my by a colleague to my 8500DN from Microsoft's Excel Viewer and got a timeout error formatted as follows:

ERROR: timeout
OFFENDING COMMAND: timeout

STACK:

42
-mark-
(84,160)

No idea what this means, but resetting the network parameters (even though I use USB connection) from the printer's front panel cleared the problem. The printer would print nothing else from any program until I performed this reset. Wonder if Excel futzes with settings and printing somehow?

The front panel shows nothing


When our control panel went blank last month, Xerox did not offer a free replacement because our printer was out of warranty. Consequently, we ordered one from SparePartsWarehouse.com at the best price we could find - $104.87 plus shipping. The part number for our 8550dp is 848K06551, but these are the compatible part numbers for the "Xerox 8500 Control Panel & Bezel": Compatible Part Numbers: 848K06551, 101E28730, 101E28731, 802K93650, 802K93651, 848K06550, 848K06552. It is easy to replace, instructions are on the Xerox website at http://www.office.xerox.com/printers/color-printers/phaser-8500-8550/sprt-enus.html
Hope this info helps someone, and thank you FixYa for this forum.
