Question about Xerox 5500/DT Laser Printer
Hi, this is often a simple driver problem. Try this, go to a PC that you wish to print from, Obtain the Driver and any software for the exact make model printer you are using, now install that on that PC, follow any instructions issued, install as a networked printer.
See no matter what, all PC's need to have a driver/software (Usually on a CD/DVD that came with the printer, or down-loadable from the Manufacturers website) installed for the printer concerned, then connect to that printer & test.
Now to check, go to INSTALL A PRINTER, select, Networked Printer find your printer and select it connect to this printer, it may/should perform some tasks, you may even be asked for a driver, whatever, show it where those files are, and proceed, now after it is all OK, try to print a test page, all should be OK.
If not, restart printer restart PC, try setting it all up from the start again.
You must do this on each and every PC you wish to print from.

If it is printing kinda scrambled it is because of a driver. The driver you downloaded does not have proper language support to be able to print in our language. When i used to work as an it PLC would work in most cases but some times we would get same stuff as you and we had to install PCL5e drivers. This link has all the drivers for this printer. I would try the PCL5e and see what happens.
Now this driver is for XP so not sure is this what you need it for. There is a drop down towards the top and gives you other drivers also if you need them.Hope this helps.

The printer is printing in hexadecimal the binary data it is getting over the network as it does not recognize the print stream correctly. Likely reason is that the print stream originator which would be a PC trying to print to it is using the wrong driver. Could try connecting the printer directly to the PC in question and installing it as a local printer then trying to print to it directly. If the result is still a hex dump, then the drivers are incorrect. Usually the drivers not only have to be the ones for the printer but also must be tailored for the PCs operating system as well. If you can get the correct drivers for the PC and can get it to print correctly on the Xerox, then the Xerox can be reconnected to the network and re-installed as a network printer (delete the old network printer first) on the PC. During the installation of the network printer on the PC, do a final test print to check.
