Re: Xerox Altalink C8000 Color Accuracy Issues

Luckily the latest firmware always resides at the same link, so if I give you the links now, they will go to 100.XXX.097.25400. But later, when the next release comes, they will go to it instead.

 

So bookmark the ones you need, and when the end number changes from 25400, download and install (and hope)

 

C8070

 

C8045-8055

 

C8030-8035

 

And thanks for chiming in Fabio, it's nice to have a backup in this place ;-)

Re: Xerox Altalink C8000 Color Accuracy Issues

Thanks Joe. Quick question. Are there any release notes we can download as well for this that document some of the changes? The last PDF we downloaded for info was for 100.xxx.057.09609.

Re: Xerox Altalink C8000 Color Accuracy Issues

Just tried the newest firmware on our AltaLink C8070, v100.0030107.28600, it's getting better but still not nearly as good as the copies and prints we used to get from our WorkCentre 7556. There seems to be a major issue with the darkness of what grey should look like, objects with low line weights come out almost invisible. We use varying levels of grey from 10% to 100% black in our prints, so distinguishing between them is important.


Any thoughts? or just keep waiting for a better firmware update?

Re: Xerox Altalink C8000 Color Accuracy Issues

I would also have a tech come in and run tests. Besides calibrating for copies and prints they also run internal calibration procedures.
