Question about Xerox WorkCentre 470CX InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Can I use Xerox WorkCentre 470cx on a wireless home network?

Have had this machine for some time, but never used it on a network. Only port available which might be usable for this purpose is the parallel port. Is there a parallel-to-Ethernet cable that could be used to plug into the wireless router?

The phone jacks on the machine are being used for FAXing.

Thanks in advance!

What cable do i need to print from my workcentre 470cx to laptop?

You will need a parrallel cable that supports IEEE standard 1284 and is not longer than 12 feet.
You can consult the online user guide available by clicking here and go to page 1-8. If your laptop does not have a parrallel port you will need to purchase a usb to parrallel adapter cable like the one shown here

Broken ink cartridge holder: Xerox WorkCentre 470CX

Usually when part of the Carriage is broken, it involves taking the Carriage Assembly apart which also deals with the head assembly, Timing , etc. I would call your local Xerox dealer or printer repair depot. Get an estimate then make a decision whether it's economical to have it repaired.

I could not find a service manual for your unit. I did find this on Xerox's site:

If the Ink Cartridges do not snap in straight or seem loose, the Carriage may be broken and your WorkCentre will require service. Click "Email for Support" in the Please Help section at the bottom of this page to contact Team Xerox for service
1-800-ASK-XEROX or 1-800-275-9376

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
