Question about Xerox Phaser 8560DN Laser Printer
My solid ink laser printer prints everything with a bronze tint instead of true colors is there away to adjust it
Most likely the cyan ink is burnt. If the ink sticks are left unused (printing more black than color, this will happen.
Print the test pages for PQ troubleshooting from the control panel and examine each print. Cyan will probably have very dark streaks down the page, magenta should look normal, and yellow also will have dark stripes. You need to replace this burnt ink, and the only way is to print. From within paint (or similar accessory in other OS) Create a full page of cyan, and print about 100 - 200 pages, or until the cyan starts to clear up. Yes it is a waste, but much cheaper than a print head, Do this for yellow as well.

The TekColor correction options provide simulations of different color devices. Automatic is the default correction for general image processing. Use the following table to determine what option you want to use.
Automatic Applies the best color correction to each graphic element: text, artwork, and photographs Office Color sRGB Display: Approximates the colors on a computer display.
sRGB Vivid: Produces brighter, more saturated colors than sRGB Display. Press Match SWOP Press: Matches specifications for Web Offset Publications.
Euroscale: Matches Fogra glossy paper specification.
Commercial: Approximates U.S. commercial press target.
SNAP Press: Matches specifications for Newsprint Advertising Production. None Applies no color correction. Use with other color management tools, such as International Color Consortium (ICC) profiles, ColorSync, or the PANTONE Color Chart for the printer. Black & White Converts all colors to shades of gray
From the workstation, select the color correction in a supported driver.
Microsoft Windows 98 SE / ME / 2000 / XP/ Server 2003 / NT 4.x Operating Systems (OS):
NOTE: Some of the color corrections are grouped under Office Color or Press Match.

SOURCE: Xerox Phaser 8500 color issue
In all honesty, I suspect the print head has some bad jets on it.
Xerox will not warrany it since there is the presence of non xerox ink in the print head.
When you have tried as much as you have with the maintenance cycles. I would suspect a bad printhead.
When the jets become blocked to the point where you cant get all the colors sprayed onto the drum, you get mismatched colors.

Actually what is happening is your machine is going into the power save mode and staying there for a long time.
What happens then is you get a full warmup. When the machine warms up, it will turn on the compressor and drain the resivour because Xerox wants a "fresh": supply of ink in the print head.
Its excruciatingly expensive and wasteful.
Here is something that can help. I am not sure you can completely disable the energy save mode. Thanks Al Gore...
NOTE: To save energy, the printer enters a power saver, low-energy consumption mode after a predefined period of time since its last activity. In this mode, most printer electrical systems are shut down. When a print job is sent to the printer, the printer enters the Warm-up Mode. You can also warm up the printer by pressing the [OK] button on the Control Panel.
If the printer is going into Power Saver mode too often and you do not want to wait while the printer warms up, increase the length of time before the printer goes into the Power Saver mode.
Modify the timeout value:
NOTE: Select a larger timeout value to extend the length of time before the printer goes into the Power Saver mode.

How could this be helpful with 2 thumbs up? The printer in question is a solid ink printer, not a laser printer. The ink is in solid sticks, not a cartridge full of toner.
Sometimes, the ink sticks get jammed up in the chute. Poking at them, sliding them up and reseating them may solve your issue. If you're using non-Xerox ink, it may not be registering that there is ink due to the improperly shaped sticks. However, I believe you would be getting anothe error if this was the case.
