Xerox® VersaLink C500 Series & C600 Series Color Printer/MFP

Home Office Printer / Copier / Fax / Scanner

I have had my Xerox C505 for about 6 months. Been very happy with it as a home office printer. Easy to use and good print quality-super fast. I am having some difficulty in trying to figure out some of the advanced features like sending scanning and printing something via email. But the quality and speed has been fantastic.

Fuser error, new fuser unavailable.

We started using this new printer in 2020 and it worked really well, but a month ago the fuser broke (it gives a fuser error on the screen), and the Xerox store, which is fulfilled by CDW, said they had replacement fusers, but it turns out they don't, and nowhere else seems to either. Without this one part, the printer becomes a really expensive paperweight. :-/

Please try calling the Support Department so they can assist you in ordering a new fuser module. You can call us at 800-821-2797 to start the process. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you with this issue.
Great Box!

This is my favorite desktop device! Great quality prints.

Color printing issues

Just bought this a few months ago and have had color printing problems ever since. The ink smears when printing. When printing a 24 page document, usually 8 pages have to be redone.

VersaLink C505

Poor support. Very expense repair. Our unit is not under warranty & the billable amount is $300 for the first half hour and then $280/hour, not including parts. To replace the LVPS would cost us a minimum of $500. To make matters worse, the manufacturer of the LVPS does not have any in stock, so we are without this expense printer. Printer is nice when working, but we have had numerous problems getting it to work properly and now the power supply is out. I would not recommend this printer because of the poor support by Xerox.

Nearly Flawless

We've had this printer for about 2 years. Our printing load is roughly 200 color pages/day. It prints fast, accurately, and reliably. We tried using compatible toner but the print quality was terrible - went back to OEM and its perfect. She's pricey to operate on OEM toner but that's just how it goes. We just bought another because it has worked so well. We've had a bad stretch of color laser printers up until we purchased this unit. There are plenty of other printers with much better reviews and some of those we tried with horrible results. This model it perfect for us.
