Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My sister gave me her Xerox WorkCentre XL2140df, printer, but lost the installation disk. I have Windows XP on my computer and when I go to Xerox website to download the driver I can't get it to go. I tried adding Winzip and Winzip Extrator, but I still can't download the installation software.

Hi and welcome to the site,

The posted driver "XP Print Driver" is a self extracting executable file; there is no need to unzip it. Once downloaded, double clicking on that file would initiate the installation.

Depending on the browser used, downloading would be doing a right click on the file as shown in the Xerox Download page and clicking on "Save Target As".

Good luck and thank you for asking.

    Hello, It says Winzip Self Extractor Header corrupt. Possible cause bad disk or file transfer error so it doesn't go any further.

    I understand.

    Please use Winrar instead of Winzip. Please click here.

    I think it downloaded, but when I go in to add a printer the WorkCentre XL2140df isn't in the drop down. Can you please tell me how to get to the driver or what I need to do so I can access the printer.

    Thank you.

    If the download and installation was successful, then when the Xerox WorkCentre XL2140df is connected, it would be detected and "New Hardware found" would be displayed. The necessary drivers would be auto-installed.

    Has the above been tried?

  • wernerfam4 Jul 15, 2010

    I am not sure what it is doing. When I double click on the download it says Uninstall any previous XL series drivers before installing. I press OK and nothing happens, so I am assuming it has been installed. However when I go to Control Panel, Printers & other Hardware I don't see it there. I don't know what I am missing?

    Let's try a different approach:

    • right click here and click on Save Target as...";

    • double click on the new downloaded file "XLW2kEnu.exe";

    • on the small window of WinZip Self-Extractor, click on OK button;

    • on the new window, put "C:\" less the quotes before the Xerox_XL;

    • click on Unzip button;

    • new small window should appear "34 file(s0 unzipped successfully, click on OK button;

    • Installation procedures would be displayed in Notepad;

    • follow instructions to "Add Printer";

    • when asked where, copy & paste " "C:\Xerox_XL" less the quotes.

  • wernerfam4 Jul 15, 2010

    I think we are getting closer. When I right click on Here it doesn't give me an option to "Save As."

  • wernerfam4 Jul 15, 2010

    Awesome! Your directions got me through it and the printer shows up under the printer section.

    Thank you!!!

I just got a new computer with Windows 7 OS. I can't find a driver for my Xerox WorkCentre xd120f printer. Any suggestions?

Xerox discontinued support services of the xd120f as of December 29, 2006. There are no plans to develop Vista or win 7 drivers for these products.

You could use a program like virtual box - to create a virtual Windows XP machine; install Windows XP on a seperate partition or install the printer on another PC in your house with XP and share the printer resource across the network.

Troubleshoot xerox workcentre xl2140df we have an error code E5?

An E-5 Normally comes from the paper path actuator that detcts the second side of a copy is hanging up.
In the fuser area there are some corrigated looking parts of the fuser exit guide that the actuator is most likely hitting or hanging up on.
You may have to take a pair of diagional cutters and snip a small section of that out.E-5 is a jam on duplex copies on that machine.
