    Will my current light production finisher work with the 560 if we replace our 252 or will we have to buy new a finisher as well

    • Bill Michael July 9, 2014 -

      Hello Tee,

      If you can provide the model of your light production finishing device, I’m happy to help verify if it is compatible with a Xerox 560.

      Bill (Xerox Employee)

  28. Tee July 23, 2014 -

    Bill, we have SFN-4 on our 252 and a ZFN-5 on our 4110 both of which we are planning to retire, am looking at the 560 and hoping to keep the finishers if they are compatible to reduce cost.


    • Bill Michael July 24, 2014 -

      Hello Tee,

      While the finishers have many common parts and capabilities, we have routinely been updating and changing to support the newer toner, temperatures, and media handling of the 570 vs. 242. While we realize the underlying desire and need to keep cost low, the properly paired feeder and finisher with the 570 support each other in a reliable manner. An example is the newer 570 supports expanded media and the paired finisher on a 570 also supports a broader range of media, such as more coated stocks. A 570 would need to be paired with a like finisher, with all the firmware and hardware matching the 570.

      I hope that helps – please let me know if you have any other questions.

    I have a Docucolor 550 and 2 Docucolor 242. I would like to know if I can put on the 550 the SFN4 finisher I have on the DC 242.
    What should I do for the 550 recognize it?
    Please thank you for your answer.
    I am living in the French West Indies

    • Bill Michael February 17, 2016 -

      Hello LAFONT –

      Without testing and validation, it is very difficult to predict if your SFN-4 finisher for the DocuColor 242 would work with your DocuColor 550. One recommendation is to ensure you have the latest firmware loaded on the old finisher and possible reload the 550.
