Was the interface cable
connected after the machine was turned on?
Connect the interface cable before turning on the machine.
Is the signal status satisfactory when using wireless
LAN in infrastructure
mode ?
To check signal status, press the {User Tools/Counter}
} key, and then
select [System Settings] using {U} or {T}. On the [Interface Settings],
select [IEEE802.11b], and then select [Wireless LAN Signal] using
{U}or {T}. If signal quality is poor, remove objects that might
cause interference.
Note
❒ You can check signal status only when using wireless LAN in
infrastructure mode.
When using wireless LAN,
is the SSID correctly set?
Check using the machine's control panel that the SSID is correctly
set.
See “Interface Settings/IEEE 802.11b (Option)”, Network Guide.
When using wireless LAN,
is the access point correctly
set?
Check access point settings when in infrastructure mode. Depending on the access point, client access may be limited by MAC address.
Also, check there are no problems in transmission between access
point and wired clients, and between access point and wireless clients.

Troubleshooting
Possible Cause
Solutions
When using wireless LAN,
is the LED on the wireless
LAN card lit or blinking?
Confirm the orange LED is lit, and the green LED is lit or blinks
during transmission.
Is the wireless LAN being
used in ad hoc mode?
Turn the main power off and back on. See “Turning On the Power”, Copy Reference.
Otherwise, configure [IEEE 802.11b] in [Interface Settings] in [System
Settings]. See “Setting Up the Machine on a Network”, Network
Guide.

Did you change the option
settings on the machine?
When using the RPCS™ printer driver on Windows 2000 and connecting with IEEE 1394, an error may occur if you change the option settings on the machine. In this case, follow the procedure
below:
A Unplug the IEEE 1394 interface cables connected to the compu-
ter.
B Run the utility tool for the IEEE 1394 interface board, which is
stored in the following path on the CD-ROM “Printer Drivers

printing or booklet print does not
come out as expected.
Make sure the application's paper size and orientation settings match those

Collate and Rotating Collate
If you select the collate function on the printer driver, the machine will store
print data in memory and automatically collate the printouts.
The collate function can be turned on or off from the printer driver. The machine
automatically rotates the printouts under the following conditions:
• When using A4, 81/2×11 or B5 JIS paper
• Paper with the same size and different orientations (e.g., A4K in Tray 1 and
A4L in Tray 2)
• Auto Tray Select is specified for tray setting
Limitation
❒ You cannot use the Bypass Tray with this function.
❖ Collate
Outputs can be assembled as sets in sequential order.

❖ Parallel Timing
Specifies the timing for the parallel
interface. Normally, you do not
need to change this setting.
• ACK inside
• ACK outside
• STB down
Note
❒ Default: ACK outside
❖ Parallel Comm. Speed
Specifies the communication
speed of the parallel interface. If
the speed is too high, data may not
be transferred smoothly. If this
happens, change the setting to
“Standard”.

Note
❒ Default: High Speed
❖ Selection Signal Status
Specifies the signal level of the parallel interface.
• High
• Low
❖ Bidirectional Comm.
Specifies, for instance, how a printer connected to the parallel interface responds to a status request. If
you experience problems using another manufacturer’s printer, set
this to Off.
Limitation
❒ If set to Off, asynchronous communication will not work.
