Your main drive motor is either not statting or the main board is not sensing it. You can remove the covers, WITH THE MACHINE UNPLUGGED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and reset all the connectors, check the drive motor, and see if maybe a gear is broken., If the machien is less than 1 year old. Call 1-800-835-6100. You will have some kind of 1 year warranty, Either on site or in depot repair, which would mean they will ship you a new machine with a box to return the one you have. If you call, make sure you have the serial number handy so it can verify the warranty.

Xerox workcentre 5745 network controller boots to 75% then fails and the reboot message comes up.

Try the following:
1. Power down the device
2. AFTER it is COMPLETELY powered off (can take up to 2 minutes), unplug the power cord from the wall.
3. Wait 5 minutes with the machine unplugged.
4. AFTER 5 FULL minutes have expired, plug the machine back in and turn it back on.

If this fails to restore functionality please call for service.

      Turn off the printer and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. Wait at least one hour for the fuser assembly and other internal components to cool.

    • 2
      Open the back cover of the printer. Squeeze the two tabs located in the upper left corner of the back cover, then pull the cover off the printer body.

    • 3
      Push the two green tabs on the duplexer unit and pull the unit out of the printer. If your printer is not equipped with a duplexer, skip this step.

    • 4
      Remove the two screws on each end of the fuser. The screws are large enough to remove by hand. Grasp the orange tabs on the fuser and pull it straight out of the printer. Line up the new fuser and slide it into place on the track where you removed the old one.

    • 5
      Replace the screws on each end of the fuser. Turn the screws by hand until they are tight. Slide the duplexer unit back into place, pushing it into the slot until it locks in place.

      Push the back cover back into place until it locks. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet and turn the power on to the printer.

Xerox WorkCentre C2424: turned on, runs thru tests, initializing and then shuts off and starts the cycle again. The cycle continues but never resolves.

1. Power machine off and wait until completely off. 2. unplug power cord from wall. 3. with power cord STILL DISCONNECTED turn machine on and off again. 4. WAIT 60 SECONDS 5. plug power cord back in and turn back on
If this does not resolve the issue call for service.
Hope it helps!

After sending a fax I would like a confirmation page

Xerox phaser 6180N is not a "combo" device but a printer alone.
You should check with your fax software how to print confirmation pages.
