There is still a little hissss noise when my WC goes in sleep mode. I think it comes from the HD ? Or maybe some always on fan ?
Is it possible to replace the hard drive with a SSD on the WorkCentre 7556 ?
If so what is the process to setup/format the SSD properly ?
My objective is complete silence when the copier is sleeping just as my previous 7335.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The HDD is much quieter than the fans for cooling the whole unit. Are you sure the HDD is the source of the sounds?
That said, due to how the printer will partition the drive, it should be the same size capacity as whatever is in there now. Once installed, the device would need to be Altbooted from a USB drive to load the firmware to it. That is not something I am allowed to disclose how to do here, but the directions can be found if you look to Google I'm sure.
Lastly, I have never even heard of an SSD being put into a Xerox device, so if it works, please report back on boot speed and UI response ;-)
You don't need to partition the HDD/SSD. The machine software that you will have to install (which is Linux based), will do.
Do not enable image overwrite, either immediate or scheduled, if you're using an SSD in the Workcentre 7556. The image overwrite routine is designed only with traditional mechanical HDD's in mind and it could seriously reduce the lifespan of your SSD.
The settings for "dc129 paper registration" for the printer engine are stored on the flash module and not on the internal drive. Correct?
May I ask what SSD did you use? My Xerox Workcentre 7535 has a 160GB HDD installed. I was thinking to replace it by a 250GB SSD Samsung Evo 860. A bigger size SSD than the built-in HDD 160GB doesn't have any side effects. Right?
