PURPOSE OF THE KEY OPERATOR
PROGRAMS
The key operator programs are used by the key operator (administrator of the machine) to customize certain
features of the machine to better meet the needs of users.
This guide explains key operator programs that are common to all functions of the multifunction system (copy
function, fax function, printer function, and network scanner function), as well as programs that are specific to the
copy function, printer function, and network scanner function. Programs that are specific to the fax function are
explained in the following manual:
• Fax function ............."AR-FX7 Operation manual" (Chapter 8)
In order to access the key operator programs, the key operator code must be entered.
PROGRAMMING A KEY OPERATOR CODE
The key operator code is a 5-digit number that must be entered in order to access the key operator programs. The
key operator (administrator of the machine) should change the default key operator code that was set at the factory
to a new 5-digit number. Be sure to remember the new key operator code, as it must be entered each time the key
operator programs are subsequently used. (Only one key operator code can be programmed.)
To change the key operator code, see "USING THE KEY OPERATOR PROGRAMS" on the following page.
The key operator code is initially set to "00000" at the factory.

ACCOUNT NUMBER SECURITY
This program is used to display an alarm and prohibit
entry of account numbers for one minute if an incorrect
acount number is entered three times in a row when
"AUDITING MODE" is enabled. (This prevents
unauthorized people from attempting to guess an
account number.)
This program is initially disabled (factory default setting).
CANCEL JOBS OF INVALID ACCOUNTS
This program is used to control use of the printer
function when "AUDITING MODE" is enabled. When
this program is enabled, the machine will not print a
print job if the operator enters an invalid account
number at the computer or fails to enter an account
number.
When the program is disabled, print jobs received
without the entry of a valid account number will be
printed and the number of pages will be included in the
[OTHERS] count.
This program is initially disabled (factory default setting).

"ENERGY SAVE" provides the following four programs
to reduce your power costs. From an environmental
perspective, this also helps conserve natural
resources and reduce pollution.
● AUTO POWER SHUT-OFF
● AUTO POWER SHUT-OFF TIMER
● PREHEAT MODE SETTING
● TONER SAVE MODE
AUTO POWER SHUT-OFF
If the machine is not used for the amount of time set in
"AUTO POWER SHUT-OFF TIMER", AUTO POWER
SHUT-OFF will activate and switch the machine to a
standby state that conserves the maximum amount of
energy. This program can be used to prevent AUTO
POWER SHUT-OFF from operating. When this is
done, the "AUTO POWER SHUT-OFF TIMER" setting
is disabled. Use this program when circumstances
require that AUTO POWER SHUT-OFF be disabled.
This program is initially enabled (factory default
setting).
Caution
Rather than disabling the auto power
shut-off feature, we suggest that you
first try lengthening the time set in
"AUTO POWER SHUT-OFF TIMER" In
most cases a suitable timer setting
will allow work to proceed with
minimal delay and still enable you to
enjoy the benefits of power
conservation.
AUTO POWER SHUT-OFF TIMER
This program is used to set the amount of time after
which "AUTO POWER SHUT-OFF" activates when the
machine is not used.
This function allows you to reduce power costs, and at
the same time helps conserve natural resources and
reduce pollution.
The time can be set to as long as 240 minutes in
increments of one minute.
The factory default setting is "60" (min.).
Note
10
• Select a suitable time according to your
pattern of use of the machine.
• If "AUTO POWER SHUT-OFF" is disabled,
the time setting is also disabled.
If the printer is not used for the length of time set with
this program after printing is finished, it will enter
preheat mode. This function reduces your power
costs, and at the same time helps conserve natural
resources and reduce pollution.
Select the most suitable setting to match your pattern
of use of the printer.
The time can be set to as long as 240 minutes in
increments of one minute. (Preheat mode cannot be
disabled.)
The factory default setting is "15" (min.).
TONER SAVE MODE
The toner save mode will reduce toner consumption by
approximately 10% in the automatic, text, and
text/photo exposure modes. Copies will be lighter but
still adequate for general use. Selection of this mode
has no effect on the photo and super photo modes.
This program is initially disabled (factory default
setting).

AUTO CLEAR SETTING
If no action is taken for a certain length of time when
viewing information on finished jobs, jobs in progress,
or stored jobs, the auto clear function activates and
returns the display to the initial screen of copy mode or
the job status screen. AUTO CLEAR SETTING is used
to set the amount of time that must elapse for the auto
clear function to activate. The time can be set from 10
seconds to 240 seconds in increments of 10 seconds,
or the auto clear function can be disabled. (This setting
only operates in copy mode and network scanner
mode.)
The factory default setting is "60" (sec.).
KEYS TOUCH SOUND
This program is used to select whether or not a beep is
sounded when a key is touched, and if sounded, what
type of beep.
The program is also use to select whether or not a
special key touch beep is sounded at the initial point of
a setting.
The factory default settings are as follows:
• KEYS TOUCH SOUND: Short
• KEYS TOUCH SOUND AT INITIAL POINT: Disabled
KEY OPERATOR PROGRAMS
OK
KEYS TOUCH SOUND
KEYS TOUCH SOUND
KEYS TOUCH SOUND AT INITIAL POINT
key .... Touch this key to select a short beep
volume. A single short beep indicates a
valid key, and a double short beep indicates
an invalid key.
key .... Touch this key to select a long beep
volume. A single long beep indicates a valid
key, and a double long beep indicates an
invalid key.
key .... Touch this key to disable key touch beeps.
Select the [KEYS TOUCH SOUND AT INITIAL POINT]
checkbox to have three long beeps sound (when the
beep volume is set to long) or three short beeps sound
(when the beep volume is set to short) when the initial
point of a setting is reached while selecting basic settings.
The initial point settings are as follows:
Mode
Initial point (set from initial screen)
Copy mode
Ratio: 100%
Exposure: 3
MESSAGE TIME SETTING
Fax mode
Exposure: 3
This program is used to set the length of time that
messages appear in the display (this applies to
messages that appear for a certain length of time and
then automatically disappear.)
The time can be set to as long as 12 seconds in
increments of one second.
The factory default setting is "6" (sec.).
Network scanner
mode
Exposure setting: 3
TOUCH KEY OPERATION SETTING
These programs are used to set the length of time that
must elapse until a setting is entered after a key is
touched, and to disable key repeat.
The setting entry time can be set from 0.0 seconds to
2.0 seconds in increments of 0.5 seconds.
When [DISABLE AUTO KEY REPEAT] is enabled, only
one touch is registered if key is touched continuously.
The factory default settings are as follows:
• Time to entry: 0.0 (sec.)
• DISABLE AUTO KEY REPEAT: Disabled
DISABLE INTERRUPT PRINT JOB
(When the printer function is enabled)
Enable this program if you wish to prevent pausing of
printing for interrupt copy jobs.
This program is initially disabled (factory default setting).

Note
The initial settings can be changed in the key operator programs. (See the "Key operator’s guide".)
For the initial settings (initial screen) of printer, fax, and scanner modes, see the operation manuals of those
modes.
POWER SAVE MODES
The machine has two power save modes to reduce overall power consumption and thereby reduce the cost of
operation. These modes help conserve natural resources and reduce environmental pollution. The two power save
modes are "Preheat mode" and "Auto power shut-off mode".
The time settings for each mode can be changed in the key operator programs. (See the "Key operator’s guide".)
Preheat mode
When the set time elapses, the temperature of the fusing unit is automatically lowered to reduce power consumption
while on standby. The factory default setting is 15 minutes. To return to normal operation, touch any key on the
operation panel. To make a copy when the machine is in this mode, simply select the desired copy selections and
then press the [START] key (
).
Auto power shut-off mode
When the set time elapses, the power to the fusing unit automatically turns off to reduce power consumption (This is

COPY FUNCTIONS
POINTS TO NOTE WHEN MAKING COPIES
Document glass and RSPF
• Paper in a different orientation from the original can be selected if the auto paper select or auto image function has
been selected. In this case, the image of the original will be rotated.
• When copying a book or an original that has been folded or crumpled, press down gently on the RSPF. This will
reduce shadow lines caused by uneven contact between the original and the document glass.
• When the center tray counter function is enabled, the number of pages that can be delivered to the output tray is
limited to 500 (A4 and 8-1/2" x 14" sizes only; the limit for all other sizes is 300 pages.). When the offset function is
used, the limit is approximately 300 pages. When the limit is reached, copying stops and the [START] key ( )
light turns off. Remove the copies from the center tray and then press the [START] key ( ) to resume copying.
The center tray counter function can be disabled in the key operator programs. (See the "Key operator’s guide".)
Originals that can be used in the RSPF
A maximum of 100 sheet originals of equal size (8-1/2" x 11", 24 lbs. (90g/m2)) can be placed in the RSPF. Originals
of different length can be placed together in the RSPF as long the widths are equal; however, some copy functions
may not operate correctly.
Acceptable originals
Originals of size 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" to 11" x 17" having a weight of 9 lbs. to 34 lbs. (35g/m2 to 128g/m2) or 14 lbs. to 28
lbs. (52g/m2 to 105g/m2) for two-sided originals can be used.
Other considerations
• Use originals that are within the specified size and weight ranges. Originals outside the specified ranges may
cause misfeeds.
• Make sure that there are no paper clips or staples on the original.
• If an original has damp spots from correction fluid or ink, or glue from pasteups, be sure it has dried completely
before using it to make a copy. Otherwise the interior of the RSPF or the document glass may become soiled.
• The following originals cannot be used. These may cause misfeeds, smudging, and unclear images.
• Transparencies, tracing paper, other transparent or translucent paper, photographs
• Carbon paper
• Thermal paper
• Originals that are creased, folded, or torn
• Glued originals, cut-out originals
• Originals with binder holes
• Originals printed using an ink ribbon (thermal transfer printing), originals printed on thermal transfer paper

In 1996 the IARC reevaluated carbon black as a Group 2B carcinogen (possible human
carcinogen). This classification is given to chemicals for which there is inadequate
human evidence, but sufficient animal evidence on which to base an opinion of
carcinogenicity. The classification is based upon the development of lung tumors in rats
receiving chronic inhalation exposures to free carbon black at levels that induce particle
overload of the lung. Studies performed in animal models other than rats did not show
any association between carbon black and lung tumors. Moreover, a two-year cancer
bioassay using a typical toner preparation containing carbon black demonstrated no
association between toner exposure and tumor development in rats.

Chronic Effect
: In a study in rats of chronic inhalation exposure to a typical toner, a mild to moderate
degree of lung fibrosis was observed in 92% of the rats in the high concentration
(16mg/m3) exposure group, and a minimal to mild degree of fibrosis was noted in 22% of
the animals in the middle (4mg/m3) exposure group, but no pulmonary change was
reported in the lowest (1mg/m3) exposure group, the most relevant level to potential
human exposures.

Chapter 1
BEFORE USING THE NETWORK SCANNER FUNCTION
ABOUT THE NETWORK SCANNER
FUNCTION
When the network scanner function is added to the machine, a document or photo can be scanned into an image file
and sent over a network or the Internet to a file server, e-mail destination, or your own computer. The scanned
image can be sent to the following types of destinations:
1. The scanned image can be sent to a memory
storage device on a network (a designated
directory on an FTP server). (This is called
"Scan to FTP" in this manual.)
When sending scanned image to an FTP
server, an e-mail message can also be sent to a
preset e-mail address to inform the recipient of
the location of the scanned image data. (This is
called "Scan to FTP (Hyperlink)" in this
manual.)
2. A scanned image can be sent to a computer
connected to the same network as the
machine. (This is called "Scan to Desktop" in
this manual.)
* Before Scan to Desktop can be performed, the
"Network Scanner Tool" software in the
CD-ROM that accompanied the Network
Scanner Expansion Kit (AR-NS2) must be
installed. For information on Scan to Desktop
system requirements, installing the Network
Scanner Tool, and storing the destination, see
the Users Guide for the Network Scanner Tool
on the CD-ROM that accompanies the network
scanner expansion kit.
3. The scanned image can be sent to an e-mail
recipient. (This is called "Scan to E-mail" in
this manual.)
* A limit is set in the Web page for the size of
image files that can be sent using Scan to
E-mail (p.6).

SETTINGS AND PROGRAMMING
REQUIRED FOR THE NETWORK
SCANNER FEATURE
To use the Network Scanner feature, settings for the SMTP server, DNS server, and destination addresses must be
established.
To establish the settings, use a computer that is connected to the same network as the machine to access the
machine's Web page. The Web page can be displayed with your Web browser (Internet Explorer 6.0 or later, or

Storing destinations for Scan to Desktop
The destination for Scan to Desktop is stored by the Sharp Network Scanner Tool Setup Wizard when "Network
Scanner Tool" is installed in your computer. For this reason, there is no need to store the Scan to Desktop
destination in the Web page. (The Network Scanner Tool is on the CD-ROM that accompanied the Network Scanner
Expansion Kit .)
For information on Scan to Desktop system requirements, installing the Network Scanner Tool, and storing the
destination, see the Users Guide for the Network Scanner Tool on the CD-ROM that accompanies the network
scanner expansion kit.
Normally your computer is stored as the destination by the method indicated above.
The following page for storing Scan to Desktop destination information appears when "Destination" is selected in the
menu frame, followed by "Desktop". This page is used by mainly by the system administrator in the following
circumstance.
• When another machine with the network scanner function has been added to the same network, and you wish to
perform Scan to Desktop from the added machine to a destination programmed in the previously existing machine.
Refer to "Editing and deleting programmed transmission destinations" (p.14), and select the Scan to Desktop
destination information that you wish to transfer to the new machine. Enter the displayed information in the same
setting screen of the new machine. (When all information has been entered, click "Submit".)
If there are additional destinations that you want to transfer to the new machine, repeat this procedure for each

• Important points when using Scan to E-mail
Be very careful not to send image data files that are too large. Your mail server's system administrator may
have placed a limit on the amount of data that can be sent in one e-mail transmission. If this limit is
exceeded, the e-mail will not be delivered to the recipient. Even if there is no limit and your e-mail is
successfully delivered, a large data file may take a long time to be received and place a heavy burden on the
recipient's network, depending on the recipient's network (Internet) connection environment. If large image
data files are repeatedly sent, the resulting burden on the network may slow down the speed of other,
unrelated data transmissions and in some cases, may even cause the mail server or network to go down. In
cases where you need to send multiple documents, try such measures as lowering the resolution mode.
• A limit can be set for the size of image files sent by Scan to E-mail in "Maximum Size of File" (p.6) in the Web page.

• The resolution is initially set to 300 dpi (factory default setting). A resolution of 200 dpi or 300 dpi produces
sufficiently clear image data for normal text originals. (200 dpi is equivalent to the "Fine" character mode used
for facsimiles).
The 600 dpi setting should only be used in cases where high-clarity image reproduction is required, such as a
photograph or an illustration. Note that a high resolution setting will result in a larger file size, and transmission
may not be successful if there is insufficient disk capacity in the server to which the image is sent (or if the
administrator of the server has restricted the file size). If transmission is not successful, you can try such
measures as reducing the number of scanned pages in the file or reducing the scan size setting for the original
("MANUALLY SETTING THE SCANNING SIZE" (p.26)).
• The default resolution setting can be changed in the key operator programs. (See "INITIAL RESOLUTION

TROUBLESHOOTING
TROUBLESHOOTING
If a problem or question arises, try to solve the situation using the following information before contacting your
authorized SHARP dealer.
Problem
Cause and solution
Page
The original is loaded upside down.
The image cannot be scanned.
→ If you are using the document glass, the original must be placed
face down. If you are using the RSPF, the original must be
inserted face up.
20
A slight amount of moiré sometimes appears when
printed matter is scanned.
A moiré (stripe pattern) appears on
the scanned image.
The scanned image is fuzzy or has
smudges.
→ Moiré can in some cases be reduced by changing the scanning
resolution.
If you are using the document glass, also try shifting the position
and/or angle of the original on the document glass.
The document glass or the underside of the RSPF (or
document cover) is dirty.
→ To clean the document glass and the underside of the document
cover, see operation manual for copier.
28
—
The set original scanning size is smaller than the actual
original size.
The scanned image is clipped.
→ Set the actual original size.
If you intentionally selected a size setting smaller than the actual
original size, take into consideration the part of the original that
you wish to scan when placing the original. For example, if the
actual size is 8-1/2" x 11" and you selected 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" for the
size setting, place the original so that the part that you wish to
scan is within the 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" area indicated by the guides on
the far left side of the document glass.
26
The original was not placed in the correct orientation.
The scanned image is upside down
or on its side.
→ Place the original in the correct orientation. (See operation
manual for copier)
To rotate the image 90 degrees, touch the [ORIGINAL] key in the
initial screen and then touch the "ROTATE THE IMAGE 90
DEGREES" checkbox to make a checkmark appear.
26
The viewer program used by the recipient does not
support the format of the received image data.
The received image data cannot be
opened.
When the same file name is used for
two successive Scan to FTP
transmissions, the second file is not
sent.
32
→ Try selecting a different file type (TIFF or PDF) and/or a different
compression format (NONE, MH (G3), MMR (G4)) when sending
the image data.
Otherwise, have the recipient use Sharpdesk or a viewer
program that supports the above combinations of file types and
compression formats.
The first file may still remain in the cache of the file server
client. Disable use of the cache in the client software.

Problem
Cause and solution
Page
An incorrect destination was selected.
Otherwise, there is a mistake in the information stored
for the destination (e-mail address or FTP server
information).
The recipient does not receive
transmitted data.
The recipient does not receive data
sent by e-mail (Scan to E-mail).
Transmission takes a long time.
Caution
→ Select the correct destination and make sure the correct
information is stored for the destination.
10 - 13
* If delivery by e-mail (Scan to E-mail) is unsuccessful, an
error message such as "Undelivered Message" may be
sent to the designated administrator's e-mail address.
This information may help you determine the cause of
the problem.
Check the Web page to see if a limit has been set for the size
of image files sent using Scan to E-mail (the factory default
setting is "Unlimited").
A limit can be set from 1 MB to 10 MB. Consult the
administrator of the Web page to select a suitable limit.
6
The amount of data that can be sent in one e-mail
transmission is sometimes limited by the administrator of the
mail server. Even if the amount of data sent is within the limit
setting explained above, if it exceeds the limit set by the
administrator of the mail server, the data will not be delivered
to the recipient.
Decrease the amount of data sent in the e-mail transmission
(reduce the number of pages scanned). (Ask your mail server
administrator what the data limit is for one e-mail transmission.)
—
When there is a large amount of image information, the data
file is also large and transmission takes a long time.
—
3
In order to select image quality and data compression settings that are suited to the purpose
of transmission and create image data that is well-balanced in terms of image quality and file
size, pay attention to the following points:
• Image quality modes (TEXT, TEXT/PHOTO, PHOTO)
The factory default setting is "TEXT/PHOTO". If the original does not contain photographs, illustrations, or
other halftone images, "TEXT" mode will give you the most workable scanned image. "TEXT/PHOTO" should
only be selected when the original includes a photograph and you wish to give priority to the quality of the
photograph. (There is no advantage to scanning a text-only original in "TEXT/PHOTO" or "PHOTO" mode.)
"PHOTO" mode should only be used to scan a photograph or illustration. Note that this will produce a larger file
size than the other modes.
• Resolution
The factory default setting is "300 dpi". This is suitable for originals with mixed text and
illustrations/photographs; however, it produces a slightly larger file size. For normal text originals, a resolution
setting of 200 dpi produces an image that is sufficiently readable. (200 dpi is equivalent to the "Fine" resolution
setting of fax machines.)
The 600 dpi setting should only be used in cases where high-clarity image reproduction is required, such as an
original that includes photographs or illustrations. Note that a high-resolution setting will result in a larger file
size and transmission may not be successful if there is insufficient disk capacity in the server to which the
image is sent (or if the administrator of the server has restricted the file size). If transmission is not successful,
you can try such measures as reducing the number of scanned pages in the file or reducing the scan size
setting for the original.

TROUBLESHOOTING
IMPORTANT POINTS WHEN USING SCAN TO E-MAIL
Be very careful not to send image data files that are too large.
Your mail server's system administrator may have placed a limit on the amount of data that can be sent in one e-mail
transmission. If this limit is exceeded, the e-mail will not be delivered to the recipient. Even if there is no limit and
your e-mail is successfully delivered, a large data file may take a long time to be received and place a heavy burden
on the recipient's network, depending on the recipient's network (Internet) connection environment.
If large image data files are repeatedly sent, the resulting burden on the network may slow down the speed of other,
unrelated data transmissions and in some cases, may even cause the mail server or network to go down.
The images on the following page will produce the following file sizes when scanned as 8-1/2" x 11" or A4 size
originals:
Resolution
File size of text original A when scanned
in "TEXT" mode.
File size of photo original B when
scanned in "TEXT/PHOTO" mode.
300dpi
Approx. 50 KB
Approx. 1400 KB
600dpi
Approx. 90 KB
Approx. 5000 KB
3
* If multiple images are scanned, the file size will be approximately (Size of each image as indicated above) x
(Number of images scanned).
Although the actual limitation depends on your network environment, a general guideline for the maximum file size
for Scan to E-mail is 2000 KB. In cases where you need to send multiple documents, try such measures as lowering
the resolution mode.
Original image samples
The original images shown below are samples to help you understand the above explanations. Note that these
images are smaller than the actual originals (the actual originals are 8-1/2" x 11" size).

METADATA DELIVERY
METADATA DELIVERY (DATA ENTRY)
When the application integration module is installed and an image file is generated for a scan send transmission,
metadata (data indicating the attributes of the image file and how it is to be processed) can be generated based on
pre-stored information and transmitted as a separate file. The metadata file is created in XML format. By linking the
metadata with applications such as document management software, a workflow application, or an encryption
server, a sophisticated document solution environment can be built.

PREPARATIONS FOR METADATA
TRANSMISSION
SETTINGS REQUIRED IN THE WEB PAGES
All settings related to metadata are configured in the Web pages. (Administrator rights are required.)
To configure metadata settings, click [Metadata Settings] in the Web page menu frame.
Storing Metadata Sets
Store the items (the metadata set) that are written to the XML file that is generated during scanning. Up to 10
metadata items can be configured in a metadata set. A stored metadata set can be selected at the time of
transmission.
Note
Addresses specified in "Address Type Allowing Metadata Entry" when a metadata set is stored can be selected
as transmission destinations at the time of transmission using one-touch keys, manual entry, and/or a global
address book search. (Addresses for which metadata entry is not allowed cannot be specified as transmission
destinations.)
METADATA TRANSMISSION FOR SCAN TO DESKTOP
When Network Scanner Tool is used in its factory default configuration, a file will be generated with a new file name
on the computer. When Network Scanner Tool is used as a means of sending a metadata file to a third party
software application, this setting must be disabled to allow cross referencing between the image file and XML file by
means of the file name generated by the computer. (When setting the file name in [SEND SETTINGS], to ensure
that a previously existing file on a computer is not overwritten by a transmitted file of the same name, be sure to
configure the file name so that name duplication cannot occur; for example, by including a unique extension (the
date, etc.) in the generated file name. If the file name setting is left blank, the machine will automatically generate a
file name that is unique.)
Note
38
• It is recommended that you use Network Scanner Tool to receive metadata. For more information, see the
Network Scanner Tool User's Guide (PDF format) on the "Sharpdesk/Network Scanner Utilities" CD-ROM.
• For information on the license agreement and how to use the CD-ROM that accompanies the application
integration module, see the separate "Sharpdesk licence kit" manual.
• Using third party software applications
Various types of third party software applications exist. Some applications can start automatically from
Network Scanner Tool and some cannot. When the auto-run function of an application is enabled, Network
Scanner Tool will start the application with the ".exe" command using the file name as a parameter. Normally
an application is started twice, once for the image file and once for the XML file. For example, when Network
Scanner Tool is set to start the application "APP.EXE", the following commands are applied when the two files
"IMG.TIF" and "IMG.XML" are received.
APP.EXE IMG.TIF
APP.EXE IMG.TIF

When the "Paper Selection" setting is "Paper Source" or "Paper Type"
When "Paper Selection" in the "Paper" tab of the printer driver
setup screen is set to:
● "Paper Source", select the tray that you wish to use for
printing from the pull-down menu.
● "Paper Type", select the type of paper that you wish to use
for printing from the pull-down menu.
If you selected the "Paper Source" or "Paper Type" in the printer
driver setup screen but there is no paper in the trays that
matches your selection, printing will take place as follows:
You selected a tray in "Paper Source", but the size
of the paper in the selected tray does not match
the printing size.
Even though the paper size is different, printing will take place
using the paper in the selected tray.
You selected a "Paper Type", and although the
selected type of paper is loaded in the machine, its
size does not match the printing size.
Note
"Paper Source" and "Paper Type" cannot be
simultaneously selected.
The size and type of paper loaded in each tray and whether or
not the paper loaded in each tray can be used for printing are
specified in the "TRAY SETTINGS" of the custom settings.
(See "CUSTOM SETTINGS" in the operation manual for
copier.)
If you wish to select the "Paper Source" or "Paper Type" when
printing, be sure to select these settings in the "Configuration"
tab of the printer driver setup screen. (See "CONFIGURING
THE PRINTER DRIVER" in the software setup guide.)
CONTENTS
Even though the paper size is different, printing will take place
using the selected paper type.
However, if "FORCED OUTPUT OF PRINT" is disabled,
printing will not take place.
You selected a "Paper Type", but the selected type
of paper is not loaded in the machine.
If the bypass tray can be used, a message prompting you to
print from the bypass tray will appear. Press the [PRINT] key on
the operation panel, touch the [BYPASS TRAY] key, load the
correct size and type of paper in the bypass tray, and then
touch the [BYPASS] key. Printing will begin automatically.

Auditing mode
When "AUDITING MODE" is enabled in the key operator
programs, a 5-digit account number must be entered in the
printer driver setup screen in order to print. Account numbers
are stored in the key operator programs. (See "ACCOUNT
CONTROL" in the key operator's guide.)
To open the account number entry screen, click the "Job
Control" button in the "Main" tab of the printer driver.
Enter your 5-digit account number in "Account Number" and
click the "OK" button.
Note
To have the job control screen automatically appear
each time you open the printer driver to print, select the
"Auto Job Control review" checkbox in the "Main" tab of
the printer driver setup screen.
●
Caution
If "CANCEL JOBS OF INVALID ACCOUNTS" is
enabled in the key operator programs and printing is
attempted without entering an account number, or an
invalid account number is entered, printing will not take
place. To allow printing without the entry of a valid
account number, disable "CANCEL JOBS OF
INVALID ACCOUNTS". In this case, the number of
pages printed is added to the [OTHERS] count.
● If the machine's PPD file is used with the Windows
standard PS printer driver, auditing mode will be
disabled and print counts will not be kept for each
account.
About the "No Offset" function setting
If the "No Offset" checkbox is selected in the "Main" tab of the printer driver setup screen, offset output will be prohibited regardless
of the setting of "OFFSET FUNCTION SETTING" in the key operator programs.

Print hold function
A print job sent to the machine can be held in the machine's memory until the operator initiates printing from the operation panel of
the machine. This is called the Print Hold function.
There are four methods for holding print jobs with the Print Hold function.
Hold After Print
Hold Before Print
When this method is selected, the print job is printed and then
retained in the machine's print hold job list. The job can be printed
again as needed from the operation panel of the machine.
When this method is used, the print job is held in the machine's print hold
job list without being printed. The operator can initiate printing from the
operation panel of the machine as needed. This helps prevent print jobs
from being misplaced.
Proof Print
PIN (5-digit ID number)
When this method is selected, one set of copies is printed and then
the job is held in the machine's print hold job list.
The operator can check the copies to make sure that the image
position, stapling position, and other aspects of the job are
satisfactory, and then initiate printing of all sets from the operation
panel of the machine. (The initial proof set is included in the total
number of copies.)
If the proof copies are not satisfactory, the job can be canceled.
This prevents excessive misprints when printing a large number of
copies.
A PIN number can be set that must be entered at the machine's operation
panel in order to print a "Hold After Print", "Hold Before Print", or "Proof
Print" job. (☞Printing using the print hold function)
This helps maintain confidentiality when printing sensitive documents.
When a PIN number is set for "Hold After Print":
The PIN number must be entered at the operation panel to print the job
again after the initial printing.
When a PIN number is set for "Hold Before Print":
The PIN number must be entered at the operation panel to print the job.
When a PIN number is set for "Proof Print":
Following the initial printing of one set of proof copies, the PIN number must
be entered at the operation panel to print the remaining sets of copies.
●
Note
The machine can hold a maximum of 100 print hold jobs. If 100 jobs are exceeded or the memory that can be used for print hold
becomes full, no more print hold jobs will be accepted, an error will appear in the touch panel, or a Notice Page will be printed.
● Memory allocated to the print hold function can be changed in the key operator programs. (See "MEMORY FOR PRINTER" in the

Carbon copy print
Carbon copy print is used to print copies of the same page on different types of paper. Each paper type is loaded in a different tray,
and the different paper types must all be the same size.
For example, carbon copy print can be performed with standard paper in tray 1 and colored paper in tray 2 for output as an invoice
original and copy. As another example, standard paper can be loaded in tray 1 and recycled paper can be loaded in tray 2 to create
an original for presentation and a copy to be retained.
When carbon copy print is used to print a two-page job with two copies per page, "Collate" can be selected in the "Main" tab to obtain
the following print results.

PRINTER UTILITIES (WINDOWS)
Printer utilities
The "Software" CD-ROM contains the following two printer
utilities.
Printer Status Monitor (for general users)
This allows the user to check on the computer screen whether
or not the machine is able to print.
It provides information on error states such as paper misfeeds
and shows the configuration of the machine (number of trays,
whether or not there is a finisher, etc.) by means of illustrations.
Available paper sizes and paper remaining are also indicated.
Printer Administration Utility (for administrators)
This allows the administrator to check information on supplies
and error states of the machine and other SHARP printers
(compatible with the Printer Administration Utility) that are
connected to the network. Settings can also be changed via the
utility.
Note
Before using the Printer Status Monitor
Note the following points before using the Printer Status
Monitor.
Printing via a server
When the first print job is executed after starting up the Printer
Status Monitor, the machine's IP address is automatically set in
the Printer Status Monitor.
Direct printing without a server
Install and configure the software as explained in "USING THE
MACHINE AS A NETWORK PRINTER" in the software setup
guide for network printer. (This is not necessary if the software
has already been installed and configured.)

Description
This enables or disables smoothing. This function improves image quality by
smoothing angles and curves in the image. When smoothing is enabled using
a resolution of 600 dpi, an image quality equivalent to 1200 dpi can be
obtained. When printing a bitmap image, disabling smoothing may in some
circumstances provide a better result.
This sets the resolution for printing.
When mostly single-page jobs are printed, this function can be used to increase
printing efficiency by shortening the wait time between print jobs. Normally this
function is not enabled.
When the function is enabled (a checkmark appears), multiple print jobs are
processed as a single job when all of the jobs have the same print format. The
jobs appear as a single job key in the job status screen.
When print hold, staple printing, different paper setting ("Last Page" only), or
transparency inserts is selected in the printer driver, EXTRA PRINT MODE
does not function. EXTRA PRINT MODE also does not function if the paper
size or other print format setting is changed or a notice page is printed due to
a memory error.
Print processing efficiency increases when this mode is used, and for this
reason notification that the job is finished may not appear at the same time as
completion of output of the printed pages. In addition, special print processing
may prevent the appropriate appearance of notification that the job is finished.

Print quality is not satisfactory
(part 1)
Check the paper being used
■ Non-standard paper used?
Check that the paper conforms to the specifications. Refer to
"LOADING PAPER" in the operation manual for copier.
■ Are you using paper with a high moisture content?
Use paper that is in good condition, with a low moisture
content and no curling.
■ Is the paper loaded with the wrong side up?
Some types of paper have a front and a back side. If the
paper is loaded so that printing takes place on the back side,
toner will not adhere well to the paper and poor print quality
will result.
■ Are you printing on paper that has an uneven
surface?
It may not be possible to print correctly on paper with seams
such as the back of an envelope.

A slower printing speed may result when
"SMOOTHING" is selected.
● For the available resolution settings, see "Printer specifications".
The printed image is distorted
■ Is the paper loaded correctly?
If a document is physically damaged when it is output or the
image is skewed on the paper, discard the damaged sheet,
reinsert the paper and print again. Insert the paper so that
there is no visible space between the paper and the paper
guides.
☞See the operation manual for copier for more details on
inserting paper.
CONTENTS
Printing is not possible at the edges of the paper. The print
margins are 5/32" (4 mm) at the top and bottom of the paper
and 1/8" (3 mm) at the sides of the paper. When configuring the
paper settings in the software application, be sure to establish
margins that are at least as large as the print margins.
■ Does the paper size set for the print image match the
size of paper loaded in the machine?
Make sure that the paper size setting matches the size of
paper loaded in the machine. When "Auto Select" is selected
for the paper source in the print settings, the print method will
vary depending on the settings of the key operator programs.
☞Windows: When "Paper Selection" is set to "Auto Select"
☞Macintosh: When "Paper Feed" is set to "Auto Select"
■ Are the print orientation settings correct?
Make sure that the correct paper orientation is selected for
the print image in the application's paper settings and in the
print settings.
If the paper is loaded in the machine in a different orientation
from the print image, the image is normally automatically
rotated to match the paper; however, if this function has been
disabled in the key operator programs, the paper orientation
must be set in the application. (See "ROTATED PRINT" in the
key operator's guide.)

TROUBLESHOOTING
If a notice page is printed
(part 1)
If you find that a notice page has been printed at the end of a print job, the print data received from the computer has not been
printed as specified. Fix the problem as explained below and then try printing again.
Notice Page regarding memory full on IMC board
Note
****************************************************
Notice Page
****************************************************
The IMC memory full error had occurred,
a normal output was not able to be executed.
Please refer to the operation manual for
the solution method.
When the Staple function is not selected:
Disable the ROPM function by removing the checkmark from
"ROPM" in the "Configuration" tab of the printer driver setup
screen. (See "CONFIGURING THE PRINTER DRIVER" in the
software setup guide for network printer.) If you need to use the
ROPM function, lower the resolution setting in the printer driver
or install more memory.
● When the Staple function is selected:
Lower the resolution setting or increase the "MEMORY FOR
PRINTER" setting in the key operator programs. If this does not
resolve the problem, install more memory.
●
CONTENTS
The IMC memory is used to store print data when the
ROPM function is used. This memory is also used to
store original image data in the copy mode. The
percentage of IMC memory allocated to the printer
function can be adjusted using a key operator program.
See "MEMORY FOR PRINTER" in the key operator's
guide. The memory can be extended by adding
commercially available memory modules. For details,
contact your SHARP dealer.
When data loss error has occurred:

You selected a tray in "Paper Source", but the size
of the paper in the selected tray does not match
the printing size.
Even though the paper size is different, printing will take place
using the paper in the selected tray.
You selected a "Paper Type", and although the
selected type of paper is loaded in the machine, its
size does not match the printing size.
Note
"Paper Source" and "Paper Type" cannot be
simultaneously selected.
The size and type of paper loaded in each tray and whether or
not the paper loaded in each tray can be used for printing are
specified in the "TRAY SETTINGS" of the custom settings.

Check the connections
■ Is the interface cable compatible with the machine
and computer?
Interface cables compatible with this machine are USB and
parallel cables. Check which type of cable is supported by
your computer.
For the specifications of the interface cable, see
"CONNECTING TO A COMPUTER" in the
software setup guide.
■ If the interface cable becomes disconnected
If the interface cable becomes disconnected, even only once
during the machine's operation, then printing may be
disrupted.
If this occurs, check the interface cable and ensure that it is
securely connected, then restart the computer.
■ Is the interface cable connected securely?
Check if the interface cable is securely plugged into the
connectors of the machine and computer.
To connect the cable, see "CONNECTING TO A
COMPUTER" in the software setup guide.
■ Are any other USB peripherals being connected
along with the machine?
If your computer is connected to the machine through a USB
hub, see if printing is possible when no other USB devices
are connected, or if printing is possible when the machine
and computer are directly connected.

Check Your Computer
■ Is there enough computer memory or hard disk
space?
To use the machine, your computer must have sufficient
memory and hard disk space. If there is insufficient hard disk
space, delete unnecessary files to increase the free space of
the hard disk. If there is insufficient memory, close
unnecessary applications to increase memory available for
printing.
■ If your computer is connected to the machine
through the parallel port, is the parallel port (LPT)
mode set to other than EPP mode?
The machine may not operate correctly if the parallel port
mode is set to EPP mode. To set the parallel port mode to a
mode other than EPP mode, refer to your computer manual
or ask the manufacturer of the computer. ECP mode is
recommended to obtain the best performance from the
machine. Note that some computers may use different
names for the modes.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Print quality is not satisfactory
(part 1)
Check the paper being used
■ Non-standard paper used?
Check that the paper conforms to the specification. Refer to
"LOADING PAPER" in the operation manual for copier.
■ Are you using paper with a high moisture content?
Use paper that is in good condition, with a low moisture
content and no curling.
■ Is the paper loaded with the wrong side up?
Some types of paper have a front and a back side. If the
paper is loaded so that printing takes place on the back side,
toner will not adhere well to the paper and poor print quality
will result.
■ Are you printing on paper that has an uneven
surface?
It may not be possible to print correctly on paper with seams
such as the back of an envelope.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Print quality is not satisfactory
(part 2)
The printed image is coarse
Part of the printed image is missing
■ Has the printer driver been specified to suit both
paper and the print job?
■ Did you set sufficient margins in the paper settings
of your application?
You can select "Draft", "Normal" or "Photo" for the print
quality in the "Advanced" tab of the printer driver setup
screen. When "Photo" is selected, you can click the "Image
Adjustment" button and adjust the brightness and contrast in
the dialog box that appears. Adjust these settings
appropriately for your print data and try printing again.
The printed image is distorted
■ Is the paper loaded correctly?
If a document is physically damaged when it is output or the
image is skewed on the paper, discard the damaged sheet,
reinsert the paper supply and print again. Insert the paper so
that there is no visible space between the paper and the
paper guides.
☞See the operation manual for copier for more details on
inserting paper.
Printing is not possible at the edges of the paper. The print
margins are 5/32" (4 mm) at the top and bottom of the paper
and 1/8" (3 mm) at the sides of the paper. When configuring
the paper settings in the software application, be sure to
establish margins that are at least as large as the print
margins.
■ Is the paper size loaded in the tray the same as that
specified in the printer driver?
Check if the "Paper Size" options suit the size of the paper
loaded in the tray.
If the "Fit To Page" setting is activated, make sure that the
paper size selected from the drop-down list of the "Fit To
Paper Size" option is the same as the size of the loaded
paper.
■ Is the orientation of document setting correct?
Click the "Paper" tab in the printer driver setup screen, and
verify if the "Image Orientation" option is set to your
requirements.

****************************************************
The IMC memory full error had occurred,
a normal output was not able to be executed.
Please refer to the operation manual for
the solution method.
Note
When the Staple function is not selected:
Disable the ROPM function by removing the checkmark from
"ROPM" in the "Configuration" tab of the printer driver setup
screen. (See "CONFIGURING THE PRINTER DRIVER" in the
software setup guide.) If you wish to use the ROPM function,
set the print quality to "Draft" or increase memory.
When the Staple function is selected:
Select "Draft" for the "Print quality" setting, or increase the
value set for "MEMORY FOR PRINTER" in the key operator
programs. If this does not solve the problem, add more IMC
memory.
The IMC memory is used to store print data when the ROPM function is used. This memory is also used to store original image data
in the copy mode. The percentage of IMC memory allocated to the printer function can be adjusted using a key operator program.
See "MEMORY FOR PRINTER" in the key operator's guide. The memory can be extended by adding commercially available
memory modules. For details, contact your SHARP dealer.
Disabling notice page printing
Notice page printing can be disabled using a key operator program (see "PROHIBIT NOTICE PAGE PRINTING" in the key operator's
guide).
