Question about Xerox Phaser 8500/DN Printer

1 Answer

8500 phaser timing

Still have timing problem. Gears grind when starting up.
I have set the module of gears on the right side, holes lined up in gears and lower gear at arrow. Upper gear hole up and a little to left. Head free and wiper down. Gears on left all run free and square block cleaned. Any thing else I need to do? It did pass a page clear through a couple of times. Jams either in front or with page half out of top. Then stops with an error.
Errors I have gotten, 4,024.45:6975......08, 035.42:6975.......08,025.41:6975 in that order.
The maintenance module moves up and down and the drum turns off and on. Could it be a firmware problem? I have reset the Navram from the menu. Thanks for any and all help so far. Steve

    Thanks for your reply.

    What can I do with or about the pressure plate?

    I don't know where, what it is or what it does.

    Thanks again.

    There was a chunck of cooled off ink under the plate.

    Earlier I found the black ink tray was pushed out of place and could have alowed it to leak.

    Problem fixed.........

Doubtful its the firmeware. The maintenance kit pressure plate with sensor is most likely the problem. Once teh process drive is times and aligned properly then the pressure plate is really the only thing left.

    It is the black flat plastic piece under teh maintenance kit that lifts it up and down. Located to the left and below the maintenance kit.

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'

There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.

Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

My fax wont work in my ricoh aficio 1515 mf??

Using the 1515 as a fax machine is a pretty simple procedure if everything works right. All you have to do is hook a working phone line up to the phone jack on the back of the copier (the one labeled LINE, not TEL).

Why won't the fax work? If it is giving you an error message, what is the message?

If you are not getting a dial tone when faxing, unplug the fax from the phone line and plug a working phone in, and see if the phone gets a dial tone. If it doesn't, there is a problem with your phone line.

You can also try plugging the fax machine into another phone line. If the fax works on that line, then there may be a problem with the first line.

Are you having problems sending faxes or receiving them, or both?
