Color-Laser-Printer: Xerox Workcentre 6515DNI

I finally gave up my 15 year old color laser printer Konica magicolor 2530DL due a failed firmware update. I cannot find out how to reset firmware via USB-Stick since most links now go to 404 and DL model from is2003 does not have a parallel port anymore.USB and Ethernet is dead. Help is appreciated!

In opposite to the perfect Linux drivers the Windows Drivers became frustrating with a Windows 10 update: printing ended often just with one page and the rest hang on “processing”. Sometimes the printer misplaced the layout. Sadly, time for a new one!

One thing: Coming from an agency background print quality is of course king. I spared Samsung, HP and Co. They may have good quality but I heard several times that they are not long-living products and get very hot 馃檨

I was looking for

  • A Laser Printer (ever got a wet ink on paper?)
  • Good Printing Quality
  • A Duplex Printer
  • If Combi: A Good Scanner (CCD before CIS)
  • WLAN (CloudPrint)
  • Scan to USB
  • Copy
  • Linux Support
