    Are you kidding me with this answer? I demand a refund!

    This first thing we tried was unplugging the copier, and turning off the power switch.
    Everytime we go to make it copy it scans the papers and then says that the media necessary is not available to make the copy. We have the paper loaded correctly as well as the cartridge, It was working fine until about 24 hours ago.

Hi, well this usually means that there is not enough memory, either RAM or HDD space, to spool and print the document.
Or your Files and Buffers settings are not sufficient for the task. This can happen if there are too many windows open or system resources are low. (Often a reboot will clear everything)

Or the "Font" that has been selected isn't available for the job.

Above is your user manual, and below is your service manual.

You need to make sure that the paper is correctly loaded into the tray.

Have you tried unplugging it and plug it back again from the power source?

    It would be useful if you have posted what did you already do to rectify this issue. You may chose to consult other experts in event that I would not be able to assist you.

    And no, I am not kidding. Before going to the novice part, we should try out basic solutions like the one I have asked above. The reason for this is that a lot of users already jump into hardcore troubleshooting and then later on, fixes their units with just one simple reboot or restart.

    If you could provide additional information like, since when did this started happening and do you know anything which could have caused this issue? So that we know where to start.

    Thank you.

Digital network server (DNS) allows the device that has multimedia share resources on networks comprising several devices. For example, the administrator computer or prime device from where resources are shared to several devices predicts trend. Possible conditions with digital network servers are either related to being powered off causing the remaining devices to loss media broadcast. Such an instance is an assumption that a digital device network was established. Alternately, in a situation that newly acquired device has least ye been networked to several compatible device least broadcasts signals. Once acquired a new digital device either video games or computers, ascertain that computer devices require networking to share signals.

My Xerox 4150 keeps taking lots of blank pages through when printing multiple page documents sometimes 30 or 40 at a time

Two possible solutions to your problem.
If you are talking about grabbing more sheets than one from the tray, you need to make sure the tray guides are up flush against the paper.
If on the other hand you are talking about scanned/copied jobs, check the setting for your scanner, it may be set to letter size which is longer than A4, so the machine thinks it needs another sheet to complete the job causing a blank page to be sent.
Hope this helps

Workstation 4150 will not print fax jobs shows all pending

Make sure that it's not waiting for 'resources' in the Job Status screen. (usually a type of paper) Most common cause is that it's waiting for an unknown size due to the data that came in. You should be able to get it to specify the A4/8.5x11 (if you are in UK/US) and it will print, or just delete the first job as that is the one that usually holds the rest up.
Oh actually if you do not use the manual feed tray (the tray on the left), try using that. If you fax function is set to use the MFT, then thats the other possible reason.

Turning off job headers

You have to turn that off , it is called a banner Page, I will sent you a few ways of disabling it.
When enabled, the Banner Page prints for each job. The Banner Page consists of the following:
  • Username
  • Job Name
  • Date
  • Time
  1. From the WorkCentre, enter the Tools mode. See the Related Items below for additional information. The Tools Mode screen will be displayed.
  2. Select [System Settings] from the Touch Screen. The System Settings screen will be displayed.

    NOTE: Depending on the model and configuration, there will either be 2 or 3 main screens available in System Settings. For example, the initial screen will be noted as System Settings screen 1 of 2 or 1 of 3.

  3. Select the [Job Sheets] button. The Job Sheets screen will be displayed.
  4. Select the [Banner Sheets] button. The Banner Sheets screen will be displayed.
  5. Select [Enabled] or [Disabled].
  6. Select [Save].
  7. Select [Exit Tools].
Oh yeah
How to enter tools mode would help huh LOL

NOTE: The Tools mode is password protected. The factory set default password is 1111. It is recommended to modify the default password. See the Related Items below for additional information. The Administrator (Tools mode) password used to enter the Tools mode directly at the WorkCentre and the CWIS Administrator password are the same password. If one is modified, it affects the other.
