Question about Xerox XDL-33D Black and White Copier

1 Answer

My xerox xc1040 keep streaking across the page, this is the second cartrige and is a few years old. This machine has not been used very much for its age. I take the cartrige out and shake it around, wipe it off and I have tried tuning the roller around, this only works for a few copies then the copies are streking again?

You are going to need a new drum unit. This is the cartridge that is located right next to your toner cartridge. What is happening is the drum bleaning blade has gone bad and is not cleaning the drum properly. You can have these rebuilt but with parts and labor they usually end up costing more than just replacing the whole unit yourself. You can find them on the internet for around $125.00. Make sure if you order one that it is the whole unit not just the drum. For example a drum alone is around $40 - $50 VS the $125 for the cartridge.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I have a very old, but working, copier Xerox XC1040. It is blinking "H." What do I need to do?


To reset the H3 or H4 condition on your Xerox XC1040 copier press the following key's in sequence and as quickly as possible (with 4 seconds for the first 4 keys)
Press "C" then the far left key (exposure mode) then the "C" key then the far left again.
So in other words C, far left, C, far left
If done correctly the display should go blank.
Now key in 14 as if you were going to make 14 copies.
Now press the print button.
The machine should reset and the code should be gone.
9 times out of 10 this is a false code that pops up due to power surges or noise.
If the code comes back this means you have a heater lamp or thermal fuse (more common) failure in the fusing area and will need service.
If this solution works for you then please leave a positive feedback and testimonial for me.
Thanks,

Xerox XC1040 that keeps jamming


sounds like the fixing unit needs to be replaced, give a call to any copier dealer that services lexmark and see what it'll cost for a replacement fuser, with that info you'll be able to tell if you want to fix or trash it.

Changed both cartriges and still poor quality prints


In general, after years of use, gunk accumulates in the holder where the ink cartridges rests when not in use. Then this gunk attaches to the print head clogging it. This causes streaks across the paper and poor print quality.
Also, print heads wear out after time. Cartridges should only be refilled a few times before being replaced with new.
First. Use alcohol, and try to clean out the holder where the cartridge rests when not in use. It may be a little hard to get to. Use Q-Tips, paper towels, cotton balls, whatever works for you.
Second. Clean the print heads themselves. Using a paper towel, wet with alcohol, wipe he print heads on the cartridges gently. Also gently clean the contacts and allow them to dry.
Third. As a last resort, only if the first two suggestions don't help. Hold the print heads under hot running water for 30 seconds, then blot on a paper towel to day. Try to keep the contacts as dry as possible, if they do get wet (and they probably will), allow them to dry before re installing the cartridge.
Lastly, try new (not re-manufactured or refilled) cartridges.

Xerox Phaser 8400 Streaking


You can go into the trouble shooting menu and do the "eliminate Light stripes" procedure a few times.
Then you can do Jet substitution from the same menu.
If that does not work then most likely you need a new print head.
If you have used non xerox ink sticks that is your most likely cause of the problem. cheaper is not always better

Black streaks across the page


hello,first of all,make a copy true the adf,and the next on the platen glass,if both copys are good,then the problem is inside the machine,i.e.drum unit or fuser roller damage.
if the strikes only occurs,by using the adf,then cleaning the scanner platen glass,it is the small glass unit!!! on the left side,from the big platen glass..

good luck Sjeuf

Consistent, faded and streaking vertical lines across entire page, from top to bottom.


Toner issue getting to drum - use gen toner cart.

or Drum blade stuffed (lines are down page fro top to bottom- replace drum assy

Drum has been exposed to light faint or blank across copies repeated 4 times down page - replace drum assy

or upper fuser roller stuffed, down page, smudgy print -  replace fuser

LSU(laser) or boards rarely cause issues
