Workcentre 6605 Color Toner Question

Jump to solution

I have a couple of questions regarding a Xerox Workcentre 6605 and Color Printing.

 

1) Is there a way through CentreWare IS to disable color printing without having to log onto every station and disable color printing that way through printing preferences? All of the units are setup to print via network not USB.

 

2) If we disable Color printing on these devices should we remove the color toners? Will leaving them in long-term without use cause any issues? I wasn't even sure if it would allow me to print if they were missing from the unit.

 

Thank You ahead of time for your help.

in my opinion your best option would be to host the printer on the network and share it, that way any driver changes you make there will apply to all users... with that said that wont stop them from going into their defaults on their desktop and changing it to what ever they want...

 

As far as removing the color toner... i am almost positive the printer wont even work you were to do that.
