Question about Xerox Phaser 6250DP Laser Printer

Phaser 6250 I have the same problem you do where there is a high pitched whine and then I know there will be a jam. It is intermittent. Did you get yours fixed and was it the fuser?

    My 6250DP has the same whine and paper jam. It happens about 50% of the time. I had the repairman come and replace the main drive assembly and that didn't fix it. I saw this post about the registration clutch so he ordered that part but that didn't solve the problem either. So, we removed the new parts and I'm back to the original parts. Any other ideas? The repairman said the next repairs would be more costly like the Control board (over $400). Is it worth the money trying to repair? I just put in a new Imaging Unit and all new ink cartridges so I need to use a little while longer since I just spent all that money. Thanks for any ideas you might have.

Xerox 6250 Phaser: Randomly, every 3~10 copies on a multi-run, a jam occurs at the registration. The paper is not damaged. The image on the last copy that exits will be about 3 inches late, meaning there is 3 inches of blank space before the printint begins. In other words, the paper was fed by the registration rollers too soon. I cleaned the registration clutch, but did not change the symptom. Another symptom, possibly related, the bypass seems to feed the paper too many revolutions. It feeds without a problem, but then the feed roller makes one or two extra revolutions after the paper has stopped moving. Sometimes a paper buckling sound will occur, but there is no effect on the prints. Any ideas?

I saw this and figured i would give my 2 cents
i have seen this many times but it did not have to do with the registration roller but the fuser.
but it is not the fuser that is actually wrong, it may require a fix patch.
the patch name is
this patch will need to run through the centreware of the 6250
oh yeah sorry the cause, since the fuser has it's own motor to power the movement of paper, it is supposed to run on the printer clockspeed but does not, the fuser tries to move the paper too fast and get jammed. hope this help some.

Sorry, but I never got mine fixed. I'm still using it with the jamming. You get to know that whine before it prints so you can open the door and hope that it resets and the whine goes away. Sometimes it takes 3 or 4 times before it works. I wish I had better news for you.

    Is that something you could send to me to see if that would fix my printer?

I had a similar situation about a month ago. The jam only occured when the printer was coming out of sleep mode. After replacing the same parts others have tried with no change, I was sent a snippet that Xerox put out to correct a voltage issue causing the fuser roller not to turn. After loading the snippet the printer has worked as new. Gotta thank Whitt at Item Inc for the info on the snippet.

That problem is the registration clutch.
You have to order the registration assembly to get the clutch. It is located on assembly with the black and stainless steel roller, you have to pop out the imaging unit to see it.
But that WILL fix your problem. They changed the style of clutch also. It is more reliable now.

    Here is the part number for what you need.


    You snap out the one plate on the right. remove the 4 screws and unplug and replug 2 connectors. It really is not a hard replacement at all.

Phaser 6250 DP keeps on jamming at Fuser.

Paper type set correctly? Does the paper enter the fuser? If not, the fuser drive has failed, replacing the fuser may correct it.

Jam at registration roller?

I can tell you "exactly" where your jam is !

If you open the top cover and remove the imaging unit. Look straight down, and you will see a black rubber roller about 8 inches long. this is the registration roller. If you remove the four screws (two on the left side, one in the middle, and one on the right) and gently lift up your wrinkled paper will be right there. Since your are not replacing the registration assembly you do not need to remove the two connectors that attach to the main board from the registration assembly. Just remove the paper, reseat unit, and put back screws. There is a test to see if your unit has the fix that gives the drive assembly a little more power to aviod jams in the future. This is a software fix.
I believe it's available on the xerox website as a postscript snippet.

The high pitched whine and the paper stopping just before the fuser (the hot) unit is a known issue on the C3000 and C4100. If you are still searching for the solution to this issue, let me know, as I now have a working fix for the problem.
