Question about Xerox Phaser 6200DP Laser Printer

1 Answer

Repeating defects appearing on every 3rd page

My phaser 6200dp has started repeating defects in all ink colours, but they only appear on every 3rd page. It is repeating the image about 1mm from the first image and only in one direction. (For example, on a landscape printed page, the image is repeated 1mm to the left). I just printed 3 pages, 1st two were perfect, 3rd one with defects. So then I printed 6 pages: 1, 2, 4 & 5 are perfect, but 3 & 6 are not. I am very perplexed (and panicked ... I have a large wedding stationery order to print for a client!!) Thank you in advance for your assistance.

That most likely is on the transfer belt assembly, You can look at that belt and see if the defect is a mark that may be cleanable or actual damage to the transfer belt, which would require replacing the transfer belt.

Xerox phaser 6200DP says its out of ink (black and cyan) but there is still plenty of ink --- if the supplies usage page is full of dark color, why wont it print anything else?


You may need to go into the printer configurations menu and reset the toner levels. I have seen this option on my 8550 when I had to replace the toners.

Give that a try to see if it'll work.

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.

This problem is common in situations where a lot of black and white printing is done, with very little colour.
Alternatively, it could be that your wiper/cleaning blade is not cleaning the head properly and is smearing the different coloured inks across the head, or possibly that your printhead is leaking colours but I think the first solution should solve your problem.
Hope this helps.

Xerox Phaser 8560, produces cyan colored streaks whenever this ink is used. No other colors produce streaks.


You are probably using "Media Sciences" ink sticks (Non-Xerox).

This means the printheads jets are clogged, and the printhead needs replacing.

Media Sciences released a defective lot of cyan ink sticks.

They are currently replacing printheads (at their cost) if you call them.

Run Remove Ink Smears from the Troubleshooting menu. Try running the jetfix snippet found on Xerox website under downloads. It sounds like you may have a defective printhead telling it to spit out some magenta ink at the wrong time.

Xerox Phaser 6360N ghosting images on each page


Is it a ghost of the image or just a repeating defect? In the menu, there is a repeating defect information page that you can print out. Depending on the spacing of the defect, you can determine which component it is.

Printing issue


You need to replace the fuser. What is occuring is the teflon coating on the heat roller is worn and picking up some of the image off of the page and repeating it in a ghose like fashion.
Not a difficult replacement.

Xerox Phaser 8560 Waste INk


Although I agree totally, the anwer is no. Althought it appears black, take a piece of it an use it like a crayon. It is a combination of all the color inks combined. So if you take and rub it on a piece of paper it will be a purple color. So threfore would not create proper colors.
Now to save ink, Do not turn the printer off at all. Just let it use its own sleep mode. The power consumption is intermittent to keep the print head warm and uses about the same ammount of electricity as your refridgerator light bulb. The reason being, when you turn off a solid ink printer, it purges the print head of ALL old ink and dumps it into the waste tray. That is part of those weird noises you hear when you cycle up the machine, one is a compressor emptying the print head.
Also, honestly, althogh I am not sure what you are using the machine for. But you would be wise to put that product on a pay per page maintenance agreement. That includes all ink and all service. Some of the parts for those printers are super expensive.
I will say one thing you can do with that waste ink, if you know anyone who has children, they can use them as purple crayons..
