We're using the latest 7400DN drivers (184.108.40.206N from 2008.01.10), and I have a weird issue: with this driver, I'm missing the "ouput destination" field
Weirdest: it works with the old pcl driver (one dated from 2005, but that one is missing other options, so we can't use it either).
I have checked out the Xerox.com/support Drivers & Downloads page for the Phaser 7400 and I see a similar driver version to the one that you mentioned in your post. The version on Xerox.com is 5.50.30 and is dated Jan. 27th, 2008. There is a PostScript driver installer file and a separate Post Script driver file both with that version number and release date. I don't know if you downloaded the driver file from Xerox.com/support or not, but if you didn't, you might want to try the two files that I mentioned above. Failing that, there is a Global Print Driver available that was just added recently (February 2011). That might work for you.
I wasn't able to download the global driver using firefox 4, but well using internet explorer 8..that's why I didn't test it the other day.
But it works perfectly with the global driver indeed.
Thanks for the tip, we'll leave that one on our print server.
Let's start at the beginning... What version of OS are you running on your Mac? What web browser are you using? What version printer driver have you most recently loaded on your Mac? What was the last version that you had that everything worked?
Basically, tell me everything that you did starting with the last time everything worked.
I had the same issue and I managed to solve it today. I used a Mac OSX 10.6 and the output destination option never appeared with the right driver. So I downloaded the PPD file for MAC OS 9.x and finally the output destination option appeared and all the other functions worked!
I know this is an old post but anyway hope that it is helpful.
I have the same problem with my Phaser 7400DT.
There are two options.
or I get a driver with output options, without having the option to choose "use pure black ink"
or I get to choose "pure black ink" and no output options.
I print black and white cardstock so I need both options! Changing the options in the printer or webbased doesn't help.
I have windows 7/ 32 installed.
Update: I found a driver that has both, the "7400win2kms".
but, aparently this is a driver Adobe Acrobat (or Reader) can't handle.. All pages are printed half + an extra white page.
This is a common problem. To resolve this, you have to install the Global Print Driver which I obviously can't do because then I will be missing the options I need... :(
If Acrobat is the problem when printing, then the solution as always would be to File > Print > Advanced and enable Print as image
