Running User Diagnostics

You may be prompted by the Xerox Nuvera, or by a Customer Support representative to access and run diagnostic routines. The diagnostic routines are useful for getting the system back into proper calibration or adjustment, and/or as a part of general system maintenance.

caution: possibility of damage to equipment if procedure not followed.

Selecting and running any of the User Diagnostic routines modifies the system settings and may change the performance of your Nuvera. Use the User Diagnostic routines and settings only with the direction of an authorized Xerox representative.

To access User Diagnostics

  1. On the Xerox Nuvera user interface, select [System: User Diagnostics]. The User Diagnostics window appears. Depending on your system configuration, available diagnostic routines are listed
  2. After checking with your authorized Xerox representative, select one of the routines to begin a diagnostic routine or to enable/disable a routine or algorithm.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the chosen diagnostic routine.

Depending on your system configuration, available diagnostic routines may include any or all of the following.



Perform the following routines as needed for the Xerox Nuvera systems. Enable or disable the following optimization switches:


NOTE: Automatic Image Permanence (AIP) is dependent on how the user programs media characteristics into the stock library or into each feed tray. The system sets the temperature based on the heaviest-weight stock in the job. Excessive curl can result if light-weight stock is used with heavy-weight tabs or inserts.

Spending a few moments to correctly program the media is important to getting the optimal performance from your Xerox Nuvera system.

The Xerox Nuvera runs in Nominal Mode if neither EIP or AIP is selected. Nominal Mode runs at a mid-level fusing temperature that is satisfactory for most media.
