We have a problem on two Xerox Workcentre 7845, you have lots of strange characters, if printing more than 3 pages with Linux Cups driver. First 2,5 pages are ok but the rest are all strange characters (see attachment).
Problem started since last update (i guess).
Strange thing is, that on one workcentre 7845, the problem start at pringjobs from +3 pages, on the other printer 7845, the problem start at printjobs from +5 pages...
checked already all settings between the two printers and couldn't find any difference, also already made a "clone" from the one machine to the other machine.
Firmware Version: 071.040.034.06000
Printer driver linux: lpd://IPADDRESS/pr1

Sometimes the problem happens also with some word/excel files, but if you re-print a word/excel file who have strange characters on the same printer, same file, same pc, you have the file perfectly printed...
We found a newer firmware on the Xerox website : WorkCentre_7845-55-system-sw#07104010304401#ENG_MOD.DLM"
The machine is now on : 071.010.034.06000
If I do the update on the machine to : 07104010304401
Machine reboots and in the webinterface, there is still : 071.010.034.06000
A bug ? Somewhere else you could see if this is the latest firmware on the machine?
Original problem is still there.
