Question about Xerox Phaser 8500/DN Printer

1 Answer

Need info on driver

The duplicating department at work has a Xerox Docutech PS135, an older printer, that is on the fritz. The head of duplicating has said two things about this:

--The Xerox technician needs DOS 60 software to enable the Docutech to connect to the network, but he has to find it first.

--The hard drive for the printer needs a new controller.

Because our printer is an older printer, the Xerox tech seems to be dragging his heels, even though we have a maintence agreement. I know that some fixes for Xerox products are proprietary, but is there any way we can find the software/drivers so we can "help" the tech to do his job?

Xerox 425dc service code

The 425 dc error code refers to the department code assigned to the printer.
425 means that you have entered an invalid department code.
to fix this, you need to turn off the department codes
To do this, press the menu button so that it says machine defaults
then use the arrow down scroll button until you get department codes, then press enter
Scroll down to select off, and then press enter again.
Now press the features button to return the printer to a ready state.
You should now be able to print on the copier again.

I hope this helps you out.

I have just loaded windows XP onto my PC and now cannot find the correct driver to connect the printer, Xerox P12 laser. Xerox no longer have that particular driver how can I sort this

After a little googling it seems that there isn't an XP driver for this printer. If you have the driver CD that came with the printer it may have a driver for an older version of Windows that might work, though it seems that no-one else has had any luck with older drivers.
So really the best bet is to buy a new printer with support for Windows XP, sorry I can't be more helpful than that.

Driver for windows vista

If found that if installed the printer as a Xerox DocuPrint 4517 instead of a Xerox DocuPrint N17b then the printer works fine under Vista.

The only thing that lead me to try this was that I found that N17b and 4517 used the same printer cartridges, so I guessed they might be similar under the hood too.
