Question about Xerox Phaser 8560MFP Laser Printer

1 Answer

I read the discussion that said that Xerox will not support plugging unit into a UPS; but when I spoke to Xerox Direct they posed that as a possible solution to the indiscriminate waste of ink every time there is a power bump. So I am confused. Are they just playing coy, refusing to accept responsibility and help? Also, I am trying to figure out how much actual power it uses at peak, from what I can tell it is under 3 amps (250 watts)

    I had more to my question that was not quite answered. . .electrically I am a novice:



    ". . from what I can tell it is under 3 amps (250 watts); is this so? [you said 230 Watts. . this is under 3 amps?]"



    ". . . I had it plugged into a UPS that supplied over 8 Amps, 1000VA, and 500 Watts and it wouldn't keep it going even during a slight flicker. .. ." [This is over double the necessary power and with nothing else plugged in]



    "[I mainly wanted to have the ]. . .UPS keeping the machine from waking . . . from a "SLEEP" during a spike/drop.. . .It could not, would not even do this. Somehow the machine could detect a drop/spike in power even though attached to a UPS. . .why? [Is there something more that I could do to prevent machine from waking from sleep?]



    Sorry to ask so much questions; but they are all related, and I would really love to save all of this ink.

    We are getting closer.. .but my question was in regards to the printer waking up. I can unplug the UPS from the wall and my computer does not flinch. Why does the PRINTER detect the power change? What can be further done to have the printer respond like my computer. . .zero power loss and interupt?" Remember my UPS supplies over 8 Amps, 1000VA, and 500. . .over twice what the printer draws at full power AND I have nothing else plugged into the UPS but the printer. I'm just trying to keep it from waking in a power drop. At sleep, it can't be drawing much.

    I do not believe I had the USB connected to the printer at the time. At one time, I had one UPS for all of my computer needs and ONE just for my printer. Didn't help in the least. I don't think that it wakes the computer when the power dips. . .just the printer.

The operational power consumption of the Xerox Phaser 8560MFP/D is around 230 Watts. It is OK to plug a printer into a UPS outlet that uses only the surge protector outlet on the UPS. The usual advice is to not plug a printer into a UPS outlet that will draw power from the battery. Inkjet printers use little power and can be connected to a UPS. Laser printers use much more power. Don't plug them into a UPS unless you are sure the batteries can supply enough power. Since you have a laser printer, I wouldn't plug it into the battery side of the UPS unless it had at east twice the required wattage of your printer, if it is the only device to be used on that UPS. I wouldn't recommend plugging it into a UPS that has a computer, server, etc. plugged in as well, especially if it is mission critical.

    230 Watts / 120 Volts = 1.92 Amps. As far as the computer waking up during a power shortage, spike, etc., it is waking up because the UPS switches to battery power, and the computer switches to battery power saving mode. When the computer makes this switch, the computer wakes up. If the monitor screen bothers you when it wakes up, just turn the monitor off. I hope this helps.

    If you don't have the USB or Serial connection of your UPS connected to your printer, the printer should not detect a change in power. What is the Make and Model of the UPS you are using? If the power conversion from AC to DC, and DC to AC is not seamless, the printer may wake up just like unplugging the printer and plugging it back in real quick.

    Like I said in the previous post, the printer may wake up due to the power conversion from AC to DC, and DC to AC not being seamless. I use CyberPower UPS devices and have never had this kind of problem with them. I have used APC, Tripp Lite, Belkin, and more in the past and each had there own shortcomings. Unless you lose power often, I would just plug the printer into the Surge Protection side of the UPS. If you absolutely want the battery backup for your printer, I would suggest trying a different UPS, maybe by a different manufacturer.

Sounds like it could be a bad battery connection or the unit is damaged at the internal components level - probably the charging inverter.

UPS does not provide output power to outlets when turned on.


Hello

I've never seen a schematic for this. It's difficult to diagnose online but I would look at the primary circuit before the inverter. Possibly one or more bad caps or the inverter itself. Good Luck

Need battery backup for xerox phaser 8560 mfd


A good rule of thumb is
Volts x Amps= Watts

For example, at 15amps at 110V, you will need 1650 watts

Or 7.5 amps at 220V, gives the same answer.

My DVD/ CD-Rom says it is installed but won't start. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and even spoke with the manufacturer but still no answer. Any ideas?


you may be using a UPS that is UnderRated for what you have plugged into it. Try plugging in just you PC, and Monitor, and see if the UPS will start,(or the software, which is what I think you are talking about).
Thanks for the fixya ratings, I hope this helps

Hi,

There is nothing you can do about the cleaning page. And if its only using 20% of your ink, you're luck normally its 25% of the ink. This is simply how the machine works. Nothing can be done. The Xerox employee was simply trying to give you something to try, but it won't change anything!
