In all honesty, its not that they use to much toner. Xerox does NOT put nearly enough toner in their cartridges to get the proper yield.
I have gotten as low as 200 pages out of those cartridges.
I do service on them and they do not give 1/5th the yield they advertise.
Nothing you can do to be honest. But they are hugely inefficient.

    At a 5% image area coverage they will give the expected yield. But if you print one page of solid blue that is like printing 20 pages of 5% imae area.Full color just eats up ink.

Low capacity cartidges for this printer are rated at

3000 pages Black
2000 pages Cyan, Magenta , Yellow

This is based on the industry standard 5% coverage.


If you are printing pages with areas of dense colour your pagecount per cartridge WILL be drastically reduced (logicallly)

In fact if you printed full coverage pages you could only expect a maximum of 0.05 * 3000 (or 2000 if colour) = 150 black, 100 colour.

But it's not often you'll be doing that.

It's allways worth buying the higher capacity cartridges 8000 Black, 6000 Colours, as cost per page is lower.

That is a laser fault. You should have a 1 year warranty from Xerox on that product. Call 1-800-835-6100 have your serial number ready.

SOURCE: Xerox Phaser 6180MFP i have replaced toners

Supposedly the 6180MFP allows the user to select a non-genuine mode (select "Non-Xerox Toner" on the maintenance menu). This option is listed on page 9-18 of the User Guide, and I think it's the same as the Non-Genuine mode described on page 1-38 of the Service Manual. However, when I actually look for this option on my printer it doesn't appear to be present. Maybe Xerox removed it and didn't update the documentation? Anyone else know about this setting?

SOURCE: Xerox Phaser 6180 MFP-D password

The default password is "00000" If this password does not work you can follow the following to reset it:

  1. Power OFF the machine using the power switch located on the right side of the machine, toward the back. Press the power switch to the (O) position.

  2. Press and hold the [OK] button on the Control Panel.
  3. Continue to hold the [OK] button and power ON the machine. Keep the [OK] button held down until the Ready screen is displayed. The password is now reset to the default Control Panel password, which is 00000.

    NOTE: There will be no confirmation message during or after the machine's power on sequence. However, if the procedure was performed correctly, the password has been reset.

Xerox phaser 6180 has error code LPR and blue horizontal marks in background show up.


Background is usually a cleaner unit fault, need to check out more on this point. Best to start from this point and try this to see if you can make changes.
Good luck.

Jam at exit open door a


Could be a fuser problem, but could also be very poor quality toner cartridge(s). If a remanufacturer/compatible maker uses the wrong toner powder, it can have the wrong characteristics.


I've seen these printers with poor quality cartridges able to print a page with very little toner coverage OK, but jam EVERY page that has much real 'density' of toner. Even the configuration page on these printers has a solid band of red 5mm or so wide across the lower part of the page. Poor toners - where the fusing temperature is incorrect for this printer will cause the page to jam in the same place in the fuser EVERY TIME.


The cure - Genuine Xerox toners, or GOOD QUALITY remanufactured toners from a reputable source.

Clean printheads on Xerox phaser 6180


This type of print quality defect shows up if you have loaded the wrong type of paper in your machine and didn't remember to change the paper type (plain paper, card stock, labels, etc.).
This can also happen if the paper has a high moisture content, or if the humidity in the room is too much. Also make sure the room temperature is within its normal operating range (not too hot, not too cold).

The problem you describe could also be caused by using non-Xerox toner/drum units. Compatible toners don't work very well in Xerox printers.

Aside from those problems, the only other thing would be if the Fuser Assembly is near the end of its life...it will also cause some print quality problems like you are describing.

You most likely need a Windows 7 printer driver.
Go to the Xerox WEB site to download the printer driver -

Xerox phaser 6180. Printing 3 blue horizontal lines spaced evenly apart on printed page. New toners. Could it be fuser? transfer roller?


Just because they are new toners, doesn't mean they can't be faulty.

Faults that show in just a single colour are almost always related to THAT colour toner cartridge.

TRY THIS

If you still have your old cyan toner, swap the chip from your new toner and put the old toner in the printer, then test.

If the lines are gone, it's the NEW cyan toner cartridge.
