8570 seems to use a lot of ink

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

My 8570DN  seems to use a lot of ink.

 

I use regular very white paper for my full colour fliers, does paper type help ?

 

Is there somewhere I can reduce the amount used. I see some other printers have this.

 

Also can the 8570 use the ink for 8900 ?  Looks the same but much cheaper.

Hello ozstar.

Thank you for using the forum.

We do not recommend that you use the color sticks from 8900 on the 8570. 

To help with your question to reduce ink usage try using the setting to fast color.  This will allow fast printing with low use of solid ink.

It is in the print driver, go to Start > Control Panel > Devices and Printers

Right-click the printer and choose Printing Preferences

make the change here then select Apply > OK

Many thanks for your help.

I do noit have that panel in my Win 10Pro x64 1709 Printers/ Preferences.

The driver in Dev Mgr is..
Xerox ColorQube 8570/8870 Series Class Driver

and ther is very limited option to change anything.

Maybe i need another driver?

Thanks again

Class drivers are Microsoft drivers, not Xerox.

To get enhanced features you need a companion app, for Xerox, that is the Xerox Print Experience

 

I highly suggest just downloading and installing the Xerox PS driver
