How to remove glass on dell 948

You have to lift the document feeder up and out of the slots in back.
I would also recommend removing the screws from the back cover and taking it off. Then take the two front screws off on the top holding both the ledt and right top covers. Remove those covers, and also remove the one screw holding on the plastic strip along the back of the glass.
Then remove the glass. Be careful cleaning the scan head. That lamp is very fragile.

L 6 code flashing

That is a laser fault. Normally the motor that turns the mirrors in the laser assembly is failing.
You can also try this. take the back off the machine, there is a ribbon cable attached to the main board that I have seen unplugging and re connecting resolves an L6.
about the best price I have seen on that laser is about $300.
Google a business called "the parts drop". You can look up the part and price there. Honestly, that is one heck of a job replacing that laser. You pretty much have to split the machine in half to replace it.

Workcentre XL2130f does not ready itslef sometimes

Normally when that happens the machine need a general cleaning. Also take the toner cartridge and shake it side to side to be sure there is enough ink where the density sensor is.
There is a light on the machine that will start flashing when the drum has about 500 pages left on it.
What you most likely have to do is take the toner cart and drum out, clean in that area well, Take a flashlamp and cloth dampened with some alcohol and clean any sensors , lamps you see. Also look to the left, you will see an opening about 1/4 of an inch high and 6 inches wide, That is your laser window. You want to take. most likely a Q-tip and clean that glasss inside that slot.
On thre right side door there also is a tranasfer wire, it is in an opening in a metal bracket that will need cleaned. Be cautious since it is a very thin wire. Dampen a q - tip with alcohol and gently wipe back and forth to clean that wire.
Then remove the screws around the glass, lift out the glass and clean the underside of the glass , lamp and mirrors.
The XD2130 is really a good machine, if you don't remember repalcing a drum on it, then you must not have a very high volume on it, I would even pay someone to clean it for you if you like.
Xerox doesn't service it any longer, but parts and reputable people still service those on a daily basis. Its a good machine,

Xerox workcentre Xl2130f copier printer error j1

that is the message for low or out of toner. What you are doing by tapping it is just lostening the reemaining ink in the cartridge. If the cartridge is new, have it replaced where ever you purchased it because most likely its defective.

A CH code means the toner cartridge is not being sensed.
Could just be not seated properly. Open the front and remove and reseat the toner cartridge.
It may be empty also.
