Understanding Printer Menus

 

When your printer is configured as a network printer available to a number of users, the access to the Admin Menu menus can be limited. This prevents other users from using the operator panel to inadvertently change a printer user default that has been set by the administrator. In this case, you can access the Stored Print, and Tray Settings menus only.

However, you can use your printer driver to override printer user defaults and select settings for individual print jobs.

To complete print jobs, you may also need to modify tray settings.

Stored Document

Purpose:

To print a list of all files that are stored as Secure, Store, and Proof Print in the RAM Disk or hard disk.

Stored Print

This menu provides applicable printing services such as Secure Print and Proof Print.

Secure Print

Purpose:

To print confidential jobs. The printer can hold the job in memory or hard disk until you arrive at the printer and type the password on the operator panel. This requires hard disk, 384 MB or more of RAM to be enabled.

Values:

Print and Save
Prints the job, and then saves it in printer memory or hard disk.
Delete
Deletes the job from printer memory or hard disk.

Proof Print

Purpose:

To print only one copy and check the print result before printing all of the copies. This prevents a large number of misprinted copies from being printed at one time. This requires hard disk, 384 MB or more of RAM to be enabled.

Values:

Del after Print
Prints the job, and then deletes it from printer memory or hard disk.
Print and Save
Prints the job, and then saves it in printer memory or hard disk.
Delete
Deletes the job from printer memory or hard disk.

PowerSaver Time

Purpose:

To specify the amount of time the printer waits after a job is printed before it goes into the power saver mode.

Values:

5–60 min.
Specifies the amount of time before the printer enters power saver mode after it finishes a print job.
5 min.*

Enter 5 to put the printer in power saver mode five minutes after it finishes a print job. This uses much less energy, but requires more warm-up time for the printer. Enter 5 if your printer shares an electrical circuit with room lighting and you notice lights flickering.

Select a high value if your printer is in constant use. Under most circumstances, this keeps the printer ready to print with minimum warm-up time. Select a value between 5 and 60 minutes for power save mode if you want a balance between energy consumption and a shorter warm-up period.

The printer automatically returns to the print mode from the power saver mode when it receives data from the computer. You can also return the printer to the print mode by pressing any button on the operator panel.
