Re: Xerox Altalink C8000 Color Accuracy Issues

[ Edited ]

I'm back to let you know this is still not sorted. Colour is still very poor and the resolution also appears really bad. Images just arent very clear even when selecting high resolution.. When I'm comparing the printing to our other older printer (Xerox 7855) and it's looks dreadful.

 

What I have tried with both firmwares (new & old):

 

PCL5

PCL6

Post Script

Global Print Driver - PCL5, PCL6 & Postscript

Various Quality Changes on print settings. Standard and High.

 

With all the above drivers I have also tried print collaboration (multiple times) on the actual machine. For info the collaboration doesnt improve anything. I have also tried changing various quality settings on print menu, standard and high etc.

 

Surely I cant be the only one struggling with this, is this issue mark as resolved? or can anyone confirm it still being looked at?

It isn't nearly as updated as 100.xxx.097.100.xxx.097.25400_v3  is, it is a re-package of the original General release with some color fixes applied.

Re: Xerox Altalink C8000 Color Accuracy Issues

Hi Joe. Any way you can provide us with the x.x.097.09608v4 firmware for a 8070?

 

A little update on what our experience has been with firmware 100.003.057.096808. If using the GPD PS 5520.600.0 driver, the color accuracy is still pretty bad in regards to Cyan and Magenta. Using the GPD PCL 5520.600.0 driver, color accuracy is much improved although the colors are washed out a bit.

Hi, those 096908 releases are just in the public downloads, head over to www.xerow.com/support , then search for the altalink 8070...

Although that release is older then the 25400 version... Better wait for the next release....
