The printer has two power switches: the main power switch located behind the Front Cover, and the power switch on the Lower Center Tray.

The main printer power is controlled by the main power switch. Main power should be left on for normal printer operation and should only be turned off when connecting a cable or when cleaning the printer.

Power off the printer:

NOTE: Wait five seconds after any job completes before powering the printer off.

Power Off

Press the power switch on the Lower Center Tray to the off position. Internal processing will take place before the printer shuts off.

NOTE: When the optional Office Finisher LX is attached, the power switch is located behind a clear plastic door in the Finisher Transport Cover / Center Tray.

Power off the printer using the main power switch:

CAUTION: Do not switch the main power off while a job is being processed or while the Energy Saver button is blinking. This may cause damage to the printer's internal hard drive or cause a printer malfunction.

Switch the main power off before unplugging the power cord. Unplugging the power cord with the main power on may damage the printer or cause a printer malfunction.

Do not switch main power off immediately after switching the power switch off. Wait 10 seconds after the Touch Screen goes dark before turning off the main power.
