Phaser 600


Printing the PANTONE Color sampler chart
Use the PANTONE Color sampler chart for your printer to select colors within an application that allows you to specify PANTONE Colors. For more information on using PANTONE Colors, see the related topics on the Xerox World Wide Web server at http://www.tektronix.xerox.com/.

There are two ways to print the PANTONE Color sampler chart for your
Phaser 600 printer:

  • Open the PANTONE® Phaser 600.pdf (PANT600.PDF) file in Adobe's Acrobat Reader application, and print the pages you want:
    Printing individual pages from Acrobat

  • Download the PANTONE® Phaser 600.ps (PANT600.PS) file to the printer to print the entire sampler chart (46 pages in length):
    Printing the entire chart


    Note: Use the None color correction in a driver, or the No Color Correction downloadable utility file, or TekColor:None on the printer's front panel, when printing the PANTONE Color sampler chart or when printing PANTONE Colors from an application. Using any other color correction will cause PANTONE Colors to print incorrectly.

Printing individual pages from Acrobat

You can open the PANTONE® Phaser 600.pdf (PANT600.PDF) file in Adobe's Acrobat Reader application, and print just the pages you want. Make sure you print on the chart on the same media you will be using for final prints. For best results, use the roll paper supplied by Xerox.

Printing from Acrobat (Macintosh)

  1. When you install the Pantone Files from the printer's CD-ROM, also install the Acrobat Reader Alias from the Custom Install window; see Installing the Macintosh files for instructions.

  2. Locate the Acrobat Reader Alias in the PhaserTools folder on your hard disk, and double-click the alias; the original source on the printer's CD-ROM opens.

  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to install Acrobat Reader onto your hard disk.

  4. Once Acrobat Reader is installed, locate the PANTONE® Phaser 600.pdf file in the Pantone Files folder, inside the PhaserTools folder on your hard disk. Double-click the file to launch Acrobat Reader and open the file.

  5. View and print pages from the color sampler chart file as desired. You can manually feed Letter-size media or use roll media.

    If you are printing from a supported driver (such as Adobe PSPrinter or Phaser 600 GX):

    Print your document with the following selections. Any other selections in the driver will cause the PANTONE Colors to print differently.

    • Set Media size to Letter.

    • Set Color Correction to None.

    • Set the Print Quality to Standard.

    • Set Fusing to Cold.

    • For roll media:
      Set Page Rotation to 90 degrees to save paper.
      Set Cut Media to After each job to print the pages in a continuous banner.
      Set Advance Media to Never to save paper.

    If you are not using a supported driver:

    Print your document with the following front panel selections or downloadable utility files. Any other selections will cause the PANTONE Colors to print differently.

    • Set Media size to Letter (in a driver).

    • Set Color Correction to None (front panel or utility file).

    • Set the Print Quality to Standard (front panel or utility file).

    • Set Fusing to Cold (front panel or utility file).

    • For roll media, set Page Rotation to 90 degrees (utility file only).

    • For roll media, set Media Cutting: per Job to print the pages in a continuous banner (front panel or utility file).
