That error code is not listed in any of Xerox' service documentation. However, 08 errors all relate to the "cap-wipe-purge" system, which is used to clean the printhead. It is likely that the drum maintenance clutch is failing, or that the purge cap is not aligned properly. Either way the printer would need to be checked out by a technician. As you "picked up" the 8200 and as the printer is well and truly obsolete, a service call is probably not worth the expense. You could open up the printer, but unless you know what you are looking for that won't help you much.

A faulty purge system also explains why you have to clean regularly.
