Hello minimoi,

Did you already installed the driver for your printer?

    The chapter is called Selecting Options for an Individual Job (Macintosh)

    It says:
    To select print settings for a particular job, change the driver settings before sending the job to
    the printer.
    1. With the document open in your application, click File, and then click Print.
    2. Select the desired printing options from the menus and drop-down lists that are displayed.
    Note: In Macintosh OS X, click Save Preset on the Print menu screen to save the current
    printer settings. You can create multiple presets and save each with its own distinctive
    name and printer settings. To print jobs using specific printer settings, click the applicable
    saved preset in the Presets list.
    3. Click Print to print the job.
    See the following table for specific printing options:




    And select: Layout: 2-sided printing

How do you print two sided on xerox 6180 phaser


I expect you have to put the paper in the other side up. however if you do you could spoil the first side as it will melt the wax again when it's fusing the second side!
Good Luck.

Can you please tell me how to print double sided? Thanks


Xerox Phaser 8400 does not support double sided prints. You have to have a Duplex Unit for Phaser 8400 part number 097S03177 to be able to print double sided. If you have the duplex unit, on the Print dialog box just click Preferences and under 2-Sided Printing select 2-Sided Print then Apply.

Xerox phaser 6120 not duplex printing since it's wireless network


You have to go to printer properties and look for "optional functions" or something to that effect, and check the option "duplexing unit" or similar.
By default the computer does not know, that your printer has duplex capabilities.

How to set up printer to print double sided. Printer Xerox Phaser 8400


First look at your printer identification.

You can see it in either the display or on the startup or configuration pages.

It must have a "D" in the name for you to be able to do automatic duplexing. i.e. 8400DN or 8400DX . Then you can scroll to printer setup
and select defaults, and then turn on the duplex, or double sided printing.

If yours does not have a "D" i.e. 8400, 8400N then you would need a new sim card to enable the duplex option.

PCL5 OUT OF MEMORY Phaser 8860


After reading some similar stories, I simply restarted the Xerox Phaser printer via the menu on the physical printer. I theorize perhaps the Phasers on board memory could have been bogged down from all the pictures involved in the problem documents and all the size problems associated with large files.

Xerox Phaser 8560 Not Duplexing


Check to make sure that "Plain Paper" is selected as the paper type for tray 2 in the printer's internal setup. If it's not set as the default then the printer may think you have labels or some other special media loaded that can't be printed in duplex.

1. Go to the printer.

2. Use the up and down arrow keys to hilight "Paper Tray Setup" on the main menu and push "OK".

3. Use the up and down arrow keys to hilight "Tray 2 Paper Type" and push "OK".

4. Hilight "Plain Paper" and push "OK".

5. Press the return button (the one with the little rounded arrow symbol) to return to the main menu.

That should solve it.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!

Garbled text


Did you just install it ? Sounds like a driver issue.
The only other thing I have seen cause that is software corruption.You can do a NVRAM reset from the screen.
But I would try restarting the machine first. Then go to the Xerox.com site and download a new driver before resetting the NVRAM memory.
It sounds like either the program you are trying to print from of the driver is the issue.
I bet you are printing out code.

Xerox Phaser 8550DP Printer does not recognize the ink it has


  1. Open and close the Top Cover to resolve the problem.
  2. If the problem persists, arrange the ink sticks until there are no spaces between sticks of the same color.
  3. Check for non 8500/8550 ink sticks jammed in the ink load chutes.
