Xerox WorkCentre 6505 Error 017-970

I just set up a Xerox 6505 printer to my Mac 10.8.5 but prints are being sent (via a USB connection) as faxes and not prints, filling the 6505 memory and giving error code 017-970

How do I resolve this?

What types of documents are you trying to print?

From which applications are you issuing the print requests?

Any type; .pdf's, word, web pages etc
From the printer's front panel, try different settings under System Menus (press the System button) > Admin Menu > USB Setup > Adobe Protocol.

I found the problem, the printer had been installed as a LAN fax, I held down the Option key whilst deleting it and re added it as a printer
