Turning the Printer On/Off

Turning the printer’s power on and off is performed with the power switch on the right side of the printer. Please learn the correct procedures to avoid any unexpected trouble.

Turning On the Printer

To use the printer, turn it on by pressing the power switch to the “I” position. Printing is enabled after the printer performs a self-diagnostictest to check the status of the printer and any options installed.

IMPORTANT

Do not turn on the printer again immediately after turning off the power. Turn on the printer after at least 3 seconds have passed since turning off the power.

NOTE

It may take time to bring the printer online when the power is turned on for the first time after installing the hard disk, or when there are errors found on the hard disk, as the hard disk is formatted after the power is turned on.(LBP-2810only)

1 Press the power switch to the “I” position.

The indicators and the LCD display on the control panel are turned on. Then, the printer performs a self-diagnostictest to check the status of the printer and any options installed.

2

If no errors are found, the indicator, indicator and the selected paper feed indicator light up, and the message <00 > or <00 LIPS> appears on the display when the printer is ready to print.

Turning Off the Printer

The printer should be turned off as described in the following procedure. The procedure for turning off the power differs depending on whether or not the hard disk has been installed. (LBP-2810only)

IMPORTANT

If the hard disk has been installed in the printer, you should follow the designated procedure when turning off the power to protect the hard disk. (LBP-2810only) (→ P. 4)

If the printer is connected to a network, make sure that the printer is not printing data from another personal computer before turning off the power.

If the power is turned off while the indicator is on, the print data remaining in the memory of the printer and the print data being spooled in the hard disk are erased (except for the data stored in the box). Press [ ] and then select[ ] to

output any important print data, or wait until printing is complete, before turning off the power. (P. 65)

Do not turn off the power to the printer in the following situations:

-While printing.

-During the self-diagnostictest performed immediately after the power has been turned on.

-When the message that NVRAM is initializing or writing data is displayed.

-When the message that Flash Memory is initializing or deleting data is displayed. (LBP2810 only)

-When the message <02 > or<02 > is displayed.

If the printer has the hard disk installed, make sure that the HDD indicator is not on. If the power is turned off while the HDD indicator is on (the hard disk is reading or writing data), the hard disk may be damaged and become unusable. (LBP-2810only)

Printing from the Paper Cassette

Procedures for loading paper into paper cassette 1, which is supplied with the printer, and paper cassettes 2, 3, and 4, in the optional paper feeder unit, are the same. You can load different paper sizes into each cassette and switch between these paper cassettes for paper sources automatically.

Follow the procedure described below to load paper into the paper cassette.

IMPORTANT

To avoid paper jams, note the following precautions.

-Do not use print media other than plain paper (64-105g/m2), such as transparencies, label sheets or envelopes. For details about what kind of paper can be used, see “Paper Requirements,” on P. 9.

-Never use paper that has fins, or paper that is wrinkled or extremely curled.

-Refill the paper cassette with paper after the loaded paper has run out. Refilling the paper cassette with paper before paper has run out may lead to problems when feeding paper into the printer.

-You can load up to 500 sheets of plain paper (64 g/m2). Never stack paper in the paper

cassette higher than the limit guide. This may cause a paper feed failure.

-Do not touch the paper feed roller or black rubber part of the paper cassette. This may cause a paper feed failure.

Canceling Printing

To cancel printing currently being processed, follow the procedure described below to perform job cancel. Job cancel lets you cancel a job while data is being received or processed. It does not affect the print data for the next job or any other interface jobs for which data processing has not begun.

IMPORTANT

Perform job cancel offline when data is being processed (when the indicator is on or flashing). If you press [ ] when the indicator is off, job cancel cannot be performed.

Data that has already been processed and is currently being printed (when paper feeding has begun) cannot be canceled. In this case, be careful because performing job cancel may cancel the print data for the next job.

If print data sent from a printer driver not compatible with this printer is mixed with other data, multiple print jobs may be canceled.

NOTE

When job cancel is performed, the message <03 > is displayed. However, the print job data may not be canceled. You cannot cancel secure job data before entering a password, or job data to be stored in the box. If you want to cancel secure job data and job data stored in the box, delete them by using the Remote UI (standard forLBP-2810only) or NetSpot.

Follow the procedure described below to perform job cancel. Only perform job cancel when the indicator is on or flashing (when the print data for the job you want to cancel is being received or processed).

Checking Operations

This printer is equipped with a status print function that allows you to check the menu settings and a font list function (LBP-2810only) that allows you to print a list of the fonts installed in the printer as well as a sample list.

Status Print

Currently available printer functions and a list of setting values are printed in a status print. To perform a status print, follow the procedure described below.

NOTE

Status print is set to print on A4-size.You can print on other paper sizes, however the status print data may be enlarged or reduced, and as a result a part of the status print may be cut off or inclined.

The values that are programmed in the menus from the printer’s control panel are reflected in the status print. For example, if duplex printing is programmed, the status print will also be printed on both sides of the paper. However, the number of copies is ignored and one sheet is printed at all times.

When you contact the place of purchase, describe the problem and quote the four-digitnumber.

NOTE

When the message <5F-nn> is displayed, condensation may have formed inside the printer. Let the printer stand for two hours or more so that it adjusts to the surrounding temperature and humidity. If you print while there is condensation inside the printer, the paper may not feed properly causing paper jams, and the print quality may also be poor.

Error Messages

If the printer is unable to print for some reason, an alarm sounds, the error indicator lights up and an error message appears on the display. Furthermore, a warning message appears on the bottom of the display when you are required to take some sort of action, even though there is no problem with the print job. When these types of messages are displayed, take the following actions in response.

IMPORTANT

When multiple warning messages occur at the same time, the messages are displayed alternately.

When an error message occurs at the same time as a warning message, the warning message is not displayed.

When [ ] in the set-upmenu is set to [ ], a message with <Warning message> symbol is not displayed.

When a message with the <Error skip> symbol is displayed, press [ ] to bypass the error and continue printing. However if you do this, print data may be lost or the data may not be printed correctly. If you want to cancel the procedure, perform a soft reset to remove the cause of the problem and then press [ ] to print the data again.

Furthermore, messages marked with this symbol can be automatically skipped by setting [ ] in the set-upmenu to [ ].
