Introduction

This document contains a brief description of each message category and sections that explain each numerical control panel message and recommend what action needs to be taken to resolve the error.

Control panel messages are divided into three types, depending on their severity.
  • Status messages .

    Status messages reflect the current state of the printer. They offer information about normal printer operation and no interaction is required to clear them. They change as the state of the printer changes. Whenever the printer is ready, not busy, and has no pending warning messages, the status message READY is displayed if the printer is online.

  • Warning messages .

    Warning messages display information about data and print errors. These messages typically alternate with the READY or STATUS messages and remain displayed until the (Select) button is pressed. If CLEARABLE WARNING is set to JOB in the printer’s configuration menu, these messages are cleared by the next print job.

  • Error messages .

    Error messages communicate that some action must be performed, such as adding paper or clearing a paper jam. Some error messages are auto-continuable; if AUTO CONTINUE=ON the printer will continue normal operation after displaying an auto-continuable error message for ten seconds.
    NOTE: Any button pressed during the ten-second display of an auto-continuable error message will override the auto-continue feature and the function of the button pressed will take precedence. For example, pressing the CANCEL JOB button will cancel the job.

Critical error messages

Critical error messages display warnings about device failures. Turning the printer off and then on can clear some of these messages. These messages are not affected by the AUTO CONTINUE setting. If a critical error persists, service is required.

The control panel messages below are listed in numerical order.
