First you need to find out why its offline, it could be the printer is off or the connection to the network or computer is unplugged or loose or just a wacky problem when there is a power outage from time to time or you changed some settings and never reboot your computer.

Try going to Start > Printers and Faxes > Right click on the Phaser printer to check the status there and right click > properties >Ports tab > select your printer and then configure port. a port settings window should open which displays the printers name and IP address. You can also find the IP address on the control panel on the printer scroll down to Information > Printer Identification and the IP address and other printer info should be displayed there.

Copy the IP address and paste it in the browsers address bar and check the status of your printer there, check if there are any jobs waiting to print, try clearing all of them, check the status page to see if there are any issues such as low ink, etc.

After running thru trouble shooting options and help menus there if all else fails, restart your printer by powering down, do the same for your computer and restart them both. I've had these issues before and sometimes just a reboot will correct itself.

Hi I need to get the ip address from a xerox phaser 8550. unfortunately i cannot read the control panel display. Is there a way to get the ip address without being able to use the control panel?


Your printer needs to have the default menu item selected. It would be "Walk-Up Features". Restarting the printer and waiting for it to be ready would be the best way to be there, but you should be able to hit the back button a few times and up a few times to get to the first menu item.
Anyway, from the default menu item, press down once (highlights Information). Then OK (enters Information menu). Then down twice (highlights Information Pages). Then OK (enters Information Pages). Then OK again to print the Configuration Page.
Also, if your printer has never had its control panel display replaced, you can get a free one from Xerox, even out of warranty. Just call 877-571-7765 with the serial number of your printer.

Hi i have phaser 8560, it gives me a error 09,038,46:62248, plese who can solve me the problem.


Hi there
The onlty thing I can find close to this is.
Acording to the manual its a ink loader error like your loading the wrong type of ink like the puzzles pieces arent matching and hitting the sensor flags right. Yours by the 8 is referring to the black ink. Anyway go to troubleshooting on the control panel. then to service tools. when in service tools press and hold the up arrow while still pressing the up arrow press the down arrow. the display should say hidden menus. go to diagnostic mode press enter go to funtion menu. then go to clear ISC fault and enter. ISC=ink stick count fault. I hope that helps. Just to let you know Ive had nothing but problems with third party ink and once its in the system its hard to get out so I would watch what im doing with my expensive equipment

Xerox Phaser 8550 having color quality issue


If you are using third party ink sticks contact the manufacture and they will, if you use enough of thier product, send you a new print head and send out a tech to change it. Media Science is the most likely source of third party ink.
You can also switch to Xerox ink sticks and the colors will be correct after several purges to get rid of the old ink.
