Configuring the application

This application lets you create and display a customized slide show on the color touch screen of your printer. You can
specify how long each slide is displayed, and images can be loaded either from a USB drive or through the printer
Embedded Web Server.

Accessing the Embedded Web Server

1

Type the device IP address or hostname in the address field of your Web browser.

2

Use the navigation menu on the left to access settings and report menus.

Note: 

If the device IP address or hostname is not readily apparent, you can find it by printing a network setup page.

Printing a network setup page

1

From the printer home screen, touch 

Menus

 >

Reports

 >

Network Setup Page

. After the network setup page prints,

the device will return to the home screen.

2

On the printout under TCP/IP, locate the IP Address or Fully Qualified Domain Name.

Changing display icons and labels

You can change the icons and associated text that appear on the printer home screen. If you do not want to use the
default icons for an application, you can import new icons to be used for both the pressed and unpressed button states.

Note: 

For information about compatible image file types and recommended file sizes, see the mouse-over help next

to each field.

1

From the application configuration settings you can:

Specify new Icon Text, to be displayed above the icon on the home screen.

Browse

 to a new icon image file to represent the application on the home screen.

Browse

 to a new image file to be displayed while the application icon is being pressed.

2

Click 

Apply

 to save the settings or 

Reset

 to return to the previous settings.

Licensing the application

The application is offered with a license that must be installed in order for the application to function correctly. If
individual licenses are used, you must install them locally on each printer. If you plan to use the application with several
printers, you may prefer to install the Lexmark License Server and obtain a network license for the appropriate number
of devices.

For information about obtaining a license for the application, contact your Lexmark representative.

slideshow” on page 8.

The application may be configured for use with images loaded through the Embedded Web Server and images on
a USB drive. If the application is configured for both, images from the USB drive take precedence. The USB drive
must be inserted before you touch Showroom.

Error reading USB drive

Although most USB flash drives should work with your printer, a few may not be compatible. At a minimum, your USB
drive should:

Be USB 2.0-compatible

Support the Full Speed standard (low-speed devices will not work)

Have a USB type “A” connector

Support the FAT file system (NTFS file system not supported)

For a list of tested and approved USB flash drives, visit the Lexmark Web site at 

www.lexmark.com

.

Nothing happens when USB drive is inserted

If nothing happens within a few seconds after you insert your USB drive, then the USB ports may be disabled on the
printer. Contact your system support person for more information.

“There are no images to display” error message appears

For images stored on a USB drive

Remove and reinsert the USB drive to make sure it is properly seated in the printer USB port.

From the application configuration settings in the Embedded Web Server:

Make sure that Enable USB drive is selected.

Make sure the directory path to the image files is correct.

Make sure that the file size and type are supported. For more information, see the mouse-over help.

Click 

Apply

 to make sure the configuration has been saved.

For images added through the Embedded Web Server

From the application configuration settings in the Embedded Web server:

Make sure that is a list of image files under Showroom Slides.

Make sure that the file size and type are supported. For more information, see the mouse-over help.

Click 

Apply

 to make sure the configuration has been saved.

“Image size exceeds limit” error message appears

If the “Image size exceeds limit” appears, verify that each image file stored on the USB drive or in the Embedded Web
Server is no larger than the specified limit.
