Conditions for Use

To function effectively, this option requires the following conditions.

Operating Environment

• The machine is operating normally and is not damaged, modified, or lacking

components. 

• The machine is managed by a administrator who has carefully read and un-

derstood the manual for this option, and can ensure its safe and effective us-
age by general users.

Note

Customer engineers dispatched from the supplier or its affiliated companies
are trained in the maintenance of this option.

Precautions When Using the DataOverwriteSecurity Unit

The procedures in this manual should be performed by the machine administra-
tor. For details, see 

Security Guide

 or 

Note to Administrator

.

*1

For details on the Data Erase Status, see p.10 “Data Erase Status”.

• If the printer enters Energy Saver mode when overwriting is in progress,

press the any key to revive the display in order to check the 

[

Memory Erase Sta-

tus

]

 or 

[

Mem. Erase Info

]

 menu.

• If  Data  Erase  Status  shows  “

Data to erase remaining.

”even after you

have checked there is no temporary data, turn off the machine’s main power
switch. Wait a few moments, turn it back on, and then check if Data Erase Sta-
tus shows “

Currently no data to erase.

”. If it does not, contact your sales

or service representative.

 If Data Erase Status is not displayed, first check the optional DataOverwriteSecurity 
Unit is installed. If the optional DataOverwriteSecurity Unit is installed but Data Erase 
Status still does not appear, contact your service representative. 

*1 

If you turn off the machine’s main power switch before overwriting is completed, tem-
porary data will remain on the hard disk until the main power switch is next turned on 
and overwriting is resumed.

Deleting Data on the Hard Disk

To use this function, the optional DataOverwriteSecurity Unit must be installed.
To prevent data on the hard disk being leaked before disposing of the printer,
you can overwrite all data stored on the hard disk. You can also automatically
overwrite temporarily-stored data.

Auto Erase Memory Setting

To erase selected data on the hard disk, specify 

[

Auto Erase Memory Setting

]

.

Erase All Memory

To erase all the data on the hard disk, using 

[

Erase All Memory

]

.

Methods of Erasing the Data

You can select the method of erasing the data from the following:
The default is “NSA”.

*1

National Security Agency

*2

Department of Defense

Note

Depending on the hard disk capacity and the method of erasing the data, this
action may take a few hours. Once you start the Erase All Memory function,
no other printer operation is possible until the function completes or you quit
the function.

The printer’s hard disk lets you store data under the printer.

NSA

 

*1 

Overwrites the data on the hard disk twice with random numbers 
and once with zeros.

DoD

 

*2 

Overwrites the data with a number, its complement, and random 
numbers, and then checks the result.

Random Numbers

Overwrites the data with random numbers the specified number of 
times.

You can specify between 1 and 9 as the number of times the data is 
overwritten with random numbers. The default is 3 times.

Auto Erase Memory Setting

This can be specified by the machine administrator.
A print data sent from a printer driver is temporarily stored on the printer's hard
disk.
Even after the job is completed, it remains in the hard disk as temporary data.
Auto Erase Memory erases the temporary data on the hard disk by writing over it.
Overwriting starts automatically once the job is completed.
The Printer functions take priority over the Auto Erase Memory function. If a
print job is in progress, overwriting will only be done after the job is completed.

Preparation

If you have the 2 line display model, make sure that the administrator menus
are displayed before performing the operation. See p.2 “Displaying adminis-
trator menus”.
