Question about Xerox Office Equipment & Supplies
The inks are different types. If you have no choice, you can cut out the ink to make it fit in the ink tray, but you will first, lose ink because of that. I would only do it as an emergency.
you can get the ink sticks jammed in there because it won't go smoothly down the rails, also there is a guide rail that the inks trigger a sensor, if it does not trigger it, you will eventually get an ink out error.

you have to take the ink loader out and turn it upsidde down and kind of work them out...or you could try to pull them out if you have some skinny tools like spring hooks..

The 8500 and the 8550 do use the same solid ink cartridges. Not sure about the 8560 since couldn't find information about it.

SOURCE: Xerox 8500 excessive ink use
Hello Phaser 8500 owners,
I found a way to restrict the wasting ink problem of excessive cleaning cycles:
Just unplug the connector of the ink pump. One can find this pump behind the left plastic cover. Unplug the connector of the pump during the excessive cycles and put it back on again after.
To my experience the cleaning cycles come too soon or too often.

Ink count sensor flags are stuck after melting 2.5 ink sticks. The following codes are recorded: 9,03x.41, where x= 5 for cyan, 6 for magenta, 7 for yellow, and 8 for black. (Your error indicates black ink loader failure)
Features on the bottom of genuine Xerox ink sticks actuate the Ink Out Sensor located at the forward end of each ink channel of the Ink Loader. The sensor indicates the passage of ink to provide a count of ink consumption.
Damaged or non-genuine ink sticks may not reliably actuate the sensors. This can lead to false Ink Out messages as well as Ink Stick count faults. Using 8400 model ink in a 8500/8550/8560 models will also cause 9,03x.4x ink stick count faults.
Ink Loader will need replaced and then diagnostics entered to run "Clear ISC Fault" test to clear the error.
