Question about Xerox 212 Laser Printer
My Xerox 212 will only make 1 or 2 copies and then code U9 comes on and it will not make another copy until you shut it down and restart and then maybe only 1 copy until it shows the same U9. Sometimes the red lighted triangle will light and you can still make a couple more copies. It has always been noisy starting up and making copies. Any help would be appreciated.
If there are arc marks on the copy cartridge you may need to replace the cartridge or, in combination of any of the circuit boards.

That is normally just a dirt issue.
Clean the following.
1. Midway down the right side door, there is a channel with a very thin wire running through it. Gently brush out that channel, then dampen a Q-tip with alcohol and clean that wire, Apply just slight pressure so you do not break the wire.
2. On that same right hand door, near where the paper exits, you will see a silver metal,"sawtooth" shaped strip. Most likely you will notice it is covered with ink. Brush it clean, if you need to take a dry cloth and gently clean it.
3. Remove the copy cartridge. Look on the bottom right side of the machine, you will see a set of contacts. 2 parallel contacts, per set. Clean all the excess ink off of those also. Dry brush or cloth. then look on the cartridge and clean any corresponding contacts in the machine.
4. Check on the upper left there is a door connector. Just make sure none of the tabs are broken on that.
Keep in mind, there are horizontal and vertical contacts to clean on the right side of the machine.
The vast majority of the time. Carefully and throughly cleaning those contacts and that machine area in general will resolve a U9. Pretty common on that machine. It is caused from the high voltage in the machine arching, due to dirty contacts.
