Question about Xerox Phaser 8500/DN Printer
That code can be caused, ( normally) by 4 different things, maybe 5.
The noise you are hearing is from the maintenance kit. It moves up and down to clean and prepair the drum for a print.
1. Take the maintenance kit out and look in the opening with a flashlight. See if there is ink built up in that back side of the printer under the maintenance kit. Normallyh it will be yellow ink in that area. If so you will have to remove the scanner and document feeder, then the left cover, you may also have to remove the right side for the front cover to release the left cover.
About mid way back toward the bottom of the frame there will be where you can clean that ink out. While your at it, and waht could also be the problem, is a stainless steel pivot block. avout 1 inch square will be contaminated with ink also, clean it well.
2. The maintenance plate, the black piece that lifts the maintenance kit, may be warpted or broken, You can see is when you remove the maintenance kit.
3. The process Drive motor assembly may be mis timed. It is on the right frame toward the front. It has 2 timing holes, which you can put paper clips into, to align the upper and lower gear train, and also the arrow on the bottom metal plate must align with the arrow on the gear.
4. The print block referenced earlier may be causing the print head to bind, but rarely does that cause a noise, I add that because you may be hearing the X-Y axis motor and since it is faulting out, you may really just notice it more. But the block would more likly cause an 07,010,45 not a 43.
5 The print head wiper may be tacked to the print head.
Let me know if you need some more help..
