How to Reset a Chip in a Xerox Phaser 6125N Printer

The Xerox Phaser 6125N series printer may need to be reset or initialised at various times throughout its use. For example, the "Auto Regi Adjust" chip settings automatically adjust the colour registration of printouts. You could set it to the "Off" position for a particular project. After the job has been completed, you can restore the default setting which is in "On" position. Print meter, printer settings, and even fuser resets can all display default values when you require them. You can effortlessly change these settings and others by accessing the Maintenance mode sub-menu.

Press the "Menu" button on the printer control panel.

Press the "Down" or "Up" arrow button until the main menu option you want is displayed.

Press the "Down" or "Up" arrow button until the sub-menu option for the chip you want to reset is displayed.

Press the "Up" and "Down" arrow buttons together to perform the reset.

Press "OK" after the factory defaults appear on the display.


Common settings that may need to be reset can be accessed by pressing the "Menu" button. Use the "Down" or "Up" arrow buttons to access the "Admin Menu" main menu and "Maintenance Mode" sub-menu. In this mode, you can select "Adjust ColorRegi" option to correct colour distribution as well as the "Clear Developer" option to resolve print quality issues.
