Phaser 6180 doesn't print in color

Product Name: Phaser 6180
Operating System: Windows 10 x64
Hi!
I can't print colour, no matter which option I choose from the Global Print Driver PCL6. It gives me a grayed out option printing in 256 shades gray, that I can't change. I have chosen 6510 printer instead of the basic set to try out but that doesn't help either.

Any suggestions?

Silly me. I didn't realize that PCL option on Phaser 6180 was by default "black" and not "color". Changing it made all the difference. Now it prints nicely in color.

Re: Phaser 6180 doesn't print in color

I have a Phaser 6180, and I also found that I could not print in color to the 6180 if I used the Xerox PCL6 ver. 3 driver (this is on a machine running Win 10 x64 ver 20H2).  However, I found that if I used the Xerox v3 Postscript driver, I could print in color to the 6180.   Try downloading the postscript driver here:

Re: Phaser 6180 doesn't print in color

Thank you so much @barryroad

 

I however, did try the link. Seems like the driver is only for x86 platforms.


For anyone else that has x64 based platform, here is the link for the x64 Xerox v3 Postscript driver.
