NOTE: This printer has two power switches. The main power switch located behind the front door controls the main power to the printer. The secondary power switch on the top of the printer controls power to the printer electronic components, and initiates a software-controlled shutdown when turned off.

IMPORTANT: Using the secondary power switch to turn on and off the printer is the preferred method. To operate the printer, turn on both switches. First turn on the main power switch, then turn on the secondary power switch.

CAUTION:

  • To prevent a printer malfunction or damage to the internal hard drive, turn off the secondary power switch first. Wait 10 seconds after the touch screen goes dark, then turn off the main power switch.
  • Do not plug or unplug the power cord while the power switch is in the On position.

To Power Off the Printer:

  1. Ensure that there are no jobs in the queue.
  2. Press the secondary power switch below the Control Panel to the Off (O) position, then wait 10 seconds after the touch screen goes dark before proceeding. A warning message will be displayed on the Touch Screen that the printer is powering off.
