Windows 8 print driver for Xerox Phaser 6200 DP

Jump to solution
Hello; I have this old Xerox Phaser 6200 DP printer and after installing Windows 8 64 bit. OS, the old driver stopped working. I did install the Global Print Driver from the web and I am happy to say that now my ancient printer works just fine. Hopefully, I will get another 10 years of use from my old printer. I also recently purchased a new Xerox 6605 DN with all the bells and whistles. However, the construction of my old printer is substantially superior to the new one. Off course, the new one is 10x faster and performs 100x better than the old one. Yet, the old Xerox machines were constructed with long term durability in mind. Sorry, I got side tracked. I was just offering one solution to the Windows 8 driver issue.

HI,

Im experiencing printer issues with the same printer Xerox Phaser 6200 on windows 8.1 64b. I can install the correct divers (X-GPD_5.404.8.0_Setup Postscript version) but when i try to print a page it just says error printing. If i open Centerware in my browser it says printer ready and i can print testpages fromt there with no problem. When i print from any app in windows it just says error.

Hello Passingfable,

 

The Phaser 6200 is not fully supported in the Xerox Global Print Driver, please reference the GPD's white paper http://download.support.xerox.com/pub/docs/GLOBALPRINTDRIVER/drivers/win7/pt_BR/SFTWP-03_5.1CUD.pdf. Please confirm in printer properties on the Administration tab, that printer is set to 'Basic Printing Mode' see belowbasic printing.PNG

 

As an alternate to the global driver you could try the windows generic ppd found here

Hi, thank you for the response.

I confirm that theprinter is set to 'Basic Printing Mode'. I tried to install the suggested driver but it goes into a loop. Im taking the following steps:
goto > Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers
Add printer > It finds the printer immediately on 192.168.178.24 (its my correct ip range)
> Next > Have disk > goto the Xerox folder (from the zipped exe) and i select 'win2kms.inf' and select the 'Xerox Phaser 6200DP'.
Then i click Next and Next again on the Printer Name dialog and then it installs but keeps returning to the Printer Name dialog, it never finishes installing.

Any more suggestions are so welcome :)

Regards

I figured it out, the reason its not installing is because the drivers are not signed. To bypass this follow these instructions:

http://www.howtogeek.com/167723/how-to-disable-driver-signature-verification-on-64-bit-windows-8.1-s...

 

Then install the drivers. Strange that Xerox does not recognize this issue.

 

And we all printed happily ever after...
