Xerox 6510 Change Default Paper Setting To A4

How To Print UK Sized A4 From Xerox Phaser 6510

Some of the highest quality printers around, are Xerox. However, by default, they’re set to a “US Legal” print size (The American equivalent to A4 paper) which is a little larger. We are going to explain how to change the paper size from the default to UK Standard A4 on the most popular model, the Xerox Phaser 6510.

Does it really matter the difference in the paper size?
It does, printing on a different size paper can lead to a range of issues. Prints will be askew or misaligned. In some cases, the printer will not even accept the paper.

With the Xerox Phaser 6510 series, this is no different. With many new owners expecting A4 printing out of the box. Leading to uncertainty discovering the print is incorrect.

A4 Paper Size 210 x 297mm Compared to Legal Size 215.9 x 355.6mm

How Do I Change Paper Size?

Here’s a Minimalists guide to printing UK A4 size

  • Press the “Menu” button on the Printer
  • Scroll down to reach “Admin Menu”

No problem any more, just wanted to reference this diagnosis/fix if it isn’t already in your system.

Regards, Peter

Just spent several increasingly despairing days with my new Xerox Phaser 6510 jamming on every page.

I’ve found lots of postings on linux groups reporting their 6510s jamming 100% of the time, with various purported fixes totally ineffective..

Eventually found this diagnosis/fix as an Amazon customer feedback:
Unstoppable Paper Jam notification on first run!!!!
Diagnosis: some feed rollers are mispositioned (either as-assembled or after transport).
BTW click in the pictures to see more detail.
As I didn't find it obvious, the pictures are taken from the front of the printer with the doors shut. Showing the back of the paper out tray.
