Xerox Phaser Networking

We have recently moved office and have brought our exisiting computers and Network accross.


When we go to Add Printers, the phaser appears in the box but for some reason cannot be added as it says the network address is invalid.


When the IP address shown is pinged, it returns all data and the Xerox page can be seen when the IP address is typed into explorer.

It is necessary for the first octet (three didgits) of the IP address to be the same for the printer and the router. Thus, it is necessary to change the IP address of the printer. See the setup instructions how to do that.

I recently installed windows 7 and my phaser 8560N will not print, the printer keeps telling me to add paper but the tray is full?

Sometimes the sensors need to be woke up. Try the -paper feed- setting. If that does not work turn off the printer and re-boot your computer. Turn the printer on.

Hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!

Installation of Phaser 8550 DP on network

This is no problem for someone with even a little networking knowledge, but it would take longer to write the instructions here, than it would to have someone spend less than an hour configuring it on site. That's my recommendation

I want to add an store email addresses on my xerox phaser 6115mfp

You need to use control center , which can be found at .
But here are the steps.
The MFP ControlCentre (MCC) provides an easy-to-use Graphical User Interface (GUI) that simplifies configuring the Phaser 6115MFP and managing fax directory lists from a computer over USB. The MCC stores configuration and setting information in a .dat file that is uploaded from the computer to the Phaser 6115MFP.

NOTE: It is also possible to save the .dat file to a directory on the computer.
To program dialing and enter recipient e-mail addresses using MCC:
  1. Click on the [Start] button, then point to [Programs], select [Xerox Office Printing], then [Phaser 6115MFP], and then click on [Xerox Phaser 6115MFP MCC]. The MCC window will be displayed.
  2. Click on the [Connect to Machine] button. 'Connection Status: Online' will be displayed in the MCC window.
  3. Click on the [Download] button. The current .dat file will be downloaded to the MCC.
  4. Click on the [Menu] button.
  5. Click on the [+] on the left side of the window to configure Speed Dial, One-Touch Dialing, Group Dial, and e-mail addresses.
  6. Enter the required settings, and then click on the [OK] button.
  7. When finished, click on the [Upload] button, and then click on [Yes] to save these settings to the Phaser 6115MFP.
  8. Click on the [Save] button to save the new .dat file to the computer.
  9. When finished, click on the [Disconnect] button.

Xerox Phaser 6120 Error 21 OHP Detect Sensor

Hopefully you waited 30 min to an hour before moving it .if not you may have sloshed the ink within the unit witch will require a through cleaning these are great units but they can only be moved when ink wells have cooled off. To be safe at leased an hour. It's real hard to move them without sloshing because they are very heavy a must to cool. Good luck.
