progress will be cancelled.
• The machine is set at the factory to return the display to the home screen one minute after a print job is finished
or when the [HOME] key (
) is pressed (auto clear function). The "Auto clear" time can be changed in the
system settings. (p.91)
• The machine is initially set to automatically enter power save mode if not used for printing, for a preset period of
time. This setting can be changed in the system settings. (p.92)
POWER SAVE MODES
The machine has two power save modes to reduce overall power consumption thereby reducing the cost of
operation. In addition, these modes conserve natural resources and help reduce environmental pollution. The two
power save modes are "Preheat mode" and "Auto power shut-off mode".
Preheat mode
This function automatically switches the machine to a low power consumption state if the duration of time set in the
system settings elapses without the machine being used when the power is on. In preheat mode the display turns
off. Normal operation automatically resumes when a key on the operation panel is pressed or a print job is received.
Auto power shut-off mode
This function automatically switches the machine to a state that consumes even less power than preheat mode if the
duration of time set in the system settings elapses without the machine being used when the power is on. During
auto power shut-off, only the [ENERGY SAVE] indicator ( ) blinks. To restore the machine to normal operation,
press the [ENERGY SAVE] key ( ). Normal operation also resumes automatically when a print job is received.
While auto power shut-off is in effect, pressing a key other than the [ENERGY SAVE] key ( ) will have no effect.
Note
The preheat activation time and the "Auto power shut-off timer" can be changed using system settings.

In Windows, view printer driver Help for details on printer driver settings for each printing function.
SELECTING THE COLOUR MODE
This section explains how to select the colour mode in the printer driver properties window. The following three
selections are available for the colour mode:
Automatic:
The machine automatically determines whether each page is colour or black and white and prints
the page accordingly. Pages with colours other than black and white are printed using
Y (Yellow), M (Magenta), C (Cyan) and Bk (Black) toner. Pages that are only black and white are
printed using Bk (Black) toner only. This is convenient when printing a document that has both
colour and black and white pages, however, the printing speed is slower.
Color:
All pages are printed in colour. Both colour data and black and white data are printed using
Y (Yellow), M (Magenta), C (Cyan) and Bk (Black) toner.
Black and White: All pages are printed in black and white. Colour data such as images or materials for a
presentation are printed using black toner only. This mode helps conserve colour toner when you
do not need to print in colour, such as when proofreading or checking the layout of a document.
When "Color Mode" is set to [Automatic]
Even if the print result is black and white, the following types of print jobs will be counted as 4-colour (Y (Yellow),
M (Magenta), C (Cyan), and Bk (Black)) print jobs. To be always counted as a black and white job, select [Black and
White].
• When the data is created as colour data.
• When the application treats the data as colour data even though the data is black and white.
