Question about Xante Ilumina Digital Color Press Printer

1 Answer

Stretched Printing of Photos and graphics

We have a Xante Illumina and use Macs with OS 10.5 Leopard. We've downloaded the latest driver, but we still have a problem with the output from certain programs, specifically InDesign, printing out stretched and oversized so that photos fill the page, or are larger than the page they were printed to. Anyone else have this or know of a fix?

    Thanks! I'll give that a try tomorrow and let you know if that solved it!

    Well, that must not be our problem. We're using Intel Macs, and when you "get info" and open "more info" it only shows the last time the application was opened. No checkbox. The files are not PC files either as they were generated on this machine with this software. Any more ideas? Thanks!

Ok, the issue is most likely technical, but fixable with a mouse click.
your MAC, is most likely running a pc prossessor version.
this causes mis inter[pretation of pc based files and comes into play with CS3 programs..
go into the mac hard drive, and select the appliaction (in this case In Design) go the the info page, and click on "more info"...you should see a check box for "rosetta". check this box. and then print again, problem should be solved....is so, go into all the CS3 applications and do the same..check the rosetta box...good luck...

    hi Carl,
    sorry, it is the Intel powered MAC's that have this problem, please do this..
    go to the hard drive, and follow this trail..
    Applications
    Adobe Indesign CS3
    Adobe Indesign CS3
    More Info, 
    when this opens, you should see a list of details, and just under the "color label" with all the colored dots, you should see the "rosetta" check option.
    check these links also, may help you understand the situation

Xante accel-a-writer 4g for mac OSX 10.6


I haven't checked in a while. Xante told me when I called them that they were not planning to make updates past the current version of the 4G OS X drivers, as the machine was no longer in production. They said the driver should perform adequately on current versions of OS X even though it was not initially designed for them (as they did not exist when the driver was created).
I found this to be untrue in my case. The drivers did not allow me to print consistently from 10.5.8 on an Intel Mac Pro.
My solution was to activate the print server on an Xserve running the Tiger server version of OS X, install the Xante driver there (since it was designed to run on that version of the OS), and now my newer macs can use the printer without issue.

Patchy color printing, streaks and dull colors using Phaser 8200


I have the same exact problem. I just switched to a mac and the colors are awful. I tried from 3 different macs at work, trying different combinations of color profiles, settings, etc, and the colors always look completely off. Blues are magenta, bright red is a dull reddish, orange is completely brown. It looks like Xerox decided to not even try to make this aspect work with the Mac. This is on the latest Mac book Pro, running Snow Leopard, to a Xerox Phaser 8560 DN.

Xante Illumina runs very slow when printing on carbonless paper even for just black type. Could this be a sensor problem??


you need to check your settings, you may need to fool the machine..
on the webpage, or the front panel, select material type as plain.
set the weight setting as auto.
in the driver, make sure the setting is set to "printer Setting"
also in the driver check the selection for "black" instead of "colour"
hope this helps..

What is wrong with this Illumina???


I have been running this machine for 2 years. The only way I can run is too 1 printer media to plan - on Ilumina display panel 2 media weight to auto on Ilumina display panel - 3 When printing in printer dialog be sure set these options -  -printer features-insert option - set media type to Printer Setting

I have tried changing the media types as well and will not work for me- but setting to auto works. http://www.inkcoverage.com
