    Xerox Phaser 8400

    Well, we have the very stable Xerox Phaser 8400.

    It does the job just fine, however recently it will randomly drop off the network.

    If I put the power in, all through the 'warming up' phase I can ping it, browse the web interface and do whatever I like.

    Once it is warmed up and ready I can still browse web interface fine, but as soon as ANY print job is sent to it (even 'wgggaaarrrbbblll' in notepad), it starts dropping ping replies, maybe 2 or 3 then come back on. If I send something bigger it will probably print THAT job but will then no longer reply to pings and the web interface won't work anymore. If I shutdown the printer at this point using the front panel just as its shutting down before it cuts its own power off, I get a couple of ping replies!

    Everytime I try to get into the web interface I don't have enough time because (any network user) tries to print something and therefore it goes offline again.

    I checked for IP conflicts, wiring (asin network) as well as resetting the config from scratch.

    if anyone has any ideas it would be great to hear them!


    Oh and before I forget, it will randomly print this out, asif it timed out while recieving a print job

    ERROR: timeout
    OFFENDING COMMAND: timeout

    STACK:

    U
    -mark-
    {! }
    where
    /Pscript_Win_Data
    -mark-
    `
    -mark-
    /initialize
    *edit, Wrong forum? Network trouble so I bunged it in here, if I made a boo-boo, sorry*

    There was a print job that wouldn't purge from the memory, It sorted itself out after a lot of restarts.
