Question about Xerox Phaser 8500/DN Printer
Hi, we only use our printer every now and again for colour prints as we have a black and white laser for our day to day printing needs.
Our local technician says we should keep the printer turned off when not in use as it will harm the printer to be turned on but not in use for extended periods of time. However, when restarting the 8500 it always prints a cleaning page of solid colour which must use a lot of ink and our ink supplier told us that the printer will be fine left in sleep mode.
Obviously I'm inclined to believe the tech guy but I wanted to get another opinion.
Many thanks in advance
The reason he told you that is because ;
if left on permanently the fuser unit has a lamp ( nowadays the newer ones use a ceramic) the lamp continually comes on to keep the fuser warm and ready for you to print.which may cause the lamp to burn prematurely, most business keep theirs on all day with out the sleep mode( too busy to wait to warm up),
But, when you use the sleep mode most models do not turn on the lamp ( if it does it only puts out minimal power) but keep the power ready, which is why when you go to print it takes awhile to warm up.
The lamps are very resilient and last several years before having to change.
