Understanding the Operator Panel

The printer operator panel has two buttons and two lights. Lights indicate the status of the printer. 
Buttons are used to continue or cancel the current print job.

When the printer is turned on, both lights cycle as a self test is performed. Also, when the printer is 
reset, or when a printer setting is changed in the menus, both lights cycle.

Press and release 

Continue

 to resume printing.

Press and release 

Continue

 

twice quickly to display the secondary light sequence.

Press 

Continue

 from the Ready state to print the menu settings page.

Press and hold

until both lights come on to reset the printer.

Understanding the operator panel lights

The operator panel lights mean different things, depending on their sequence. Lights that are off, on, 
and/or blinking indicate printer conditions such as printer status, intervention, or service.

Use the light sequence table to find the message being indicated, then click the message for more 
information.

Printing the menu settings and network setup page

To print the menu settings and network setup pages, press

from the Ready state. The printer 

automatically prints the menu settings and network setup pages.

A list of the printer settings and the current default values are printed on the menu settings page. The 
current default settings are marked with an asterisk. The network setup page confirms the network 
Status is “Connected” and lists the current network settings.

Restoring factory defaults

This function will return most of the settings back to their factory values. The display language and 
the settings in the Network and USB menus are not returned to the factory defaults. 

To restore the printer to the original factory defaults, press and hold 

for more than three 

seconds.

Before restoring the factory defaults, make sure the host computer or network has 
stopped sending information to the printer.

Clearing jams

Clearing jams

When a jam occurs, the printer stops, and the Error light on the operator panel blinks. To determine 
the location of the jam, view the secondary light sequences. Prepare the printer for jam removal by 
opening the paper support and removing all printed pages from the output bin. Then, follow these 
steps to clear the entire paper path. 

1

Open the rear door by sliding the door release button to the right.

2

Remove any lodged print media from the paper path.

Warning:

When the rear door is open, be careful not to touch the attached roller. Touching 
the roller can cause contamination and affect print quality. Do not leave the rear 
door open for an extended amount of time. Exposure to light will damage the blue 
drum of the long-life photoconductor kit and affect print quality.
