Re: 8560MFP Printing "splotches" and streaks

PROBLEM SOLVED!!!  It was a jammed "Cleaning Page" that was all inked up and stuck to the drum - YET IT STILL PRINTED!

PROBLEM SOLVED: 8560MFP Printing "splotches" and streaks

Product Name: Other - specify product in post

Is there a simple fix for this?  Do I need service or is it something I can fix myself?

  • 8560MFP purchased new, 23K pages - Love this printer!
  • We use at home for homework, reports, pictures, etc. Not a business.
  • I am not using Xerox supplies and haven't since new - using LD (i know that's probably the reason I am having this problem, but knowing that doesn't fix it)
  • Print quality has suddenly become horrible. Streaks, splotches, etc. Literally overnight.
  • I emptied the waste tray - not much in it really.
  • I cleaned the strip on the mainentance kit and ran the "light streak" routine.
  • This has not fixed or improved the situation.

Here are print samples:

I don't know if it's a "cleaning" issue or a "you need a new printhead" issue.
