This setting is used to prevent the occurrence of
excessive misprints when printing a large number
of copies. When this setting is selected and a print
job is sent to the machine, only the first set of
copies is printed and then the job is stored in a
Filing folder. After checking the first set of copies to
make sure that the margins, staple positions, and
other aspects of the job are satisfactory, the user
initiates printing from the operation panel of the
machine and the remaining sets are printed. (The
sample set is included in the total number of sets.)
If the sample set is not satisfactory, the job can be
deleted.

DESCRIPTION OF SETTING PROGRAMS
The key operator programs related to the printer function are explained here.
Printer settings
Default settings
Interface settings
These programs are used to adjust the settings of
various printer functions.
These programs are used to control data transmitted to
the parallel port, USB port or network port of this
printer.
Prohibit notice page printing
Hexadecimal dump mode
This program is used to disable notice page printing.
Turn on this program when you do not want the
machine to print the notice page explained in "NOTICE
PAGE PRINTING" on page 7-3.
Normally this program is set to not print a notice page.
This program is used to output the print data from a
computer in the hexadecimal dump format with
corresponding characters (ASCII). This program is
used to check proper transmission of print data from
the computer to the printer.
Print density level
This program is used to adjust the lightness or
darkness of prints.
Five levels are provided for density adjustment. These
are represented by numbers displayed on the touch
panel. Among the displayed numbers, a smaller value
indicates lighter density and a larger value indicates a
darker density.
Output example of hexadecimal dump mode
Prohibit test page printing
I/O timeout
This program is used to disable test page printing.
When the program is turned on, the PRINTER TEST
PAGE in the custom settings cannot be printed. (See
page 2-15 of "Operation manual (for general
information and copier operation)")
This program is used to set the length of time to wait for
an I/O to complete a job on the parallel port or the
network port. If the data stream to the port does not
transmit data for a length of time exceeding the
timeout, the job will cancel and the next job will start
processing.
The I/O timeout setting is used to set the amount of time
after which an I/O timeout will occur when waiting for
print data.
Default setting: 20 seconds
A4/letter size auto change
If this program is set, and printing onto 8-1/2" x 11" size
paper is selected but not available, the printer will
automatically substitute A4 size paper in place of
8-1/2" x 11" paper if A4 paper is available.
* 8-1/2" x 11" paper cannot be automatically selected in
place of A4.
NOTE
The allowable range of the time is 1 to 999 seconds.
NOTE
When 8-1/2" x 11" size is specified for a document
attached to an E-mail that has been transmitted from
a foreign country and A4 size paper is not installed in
the printer, printing cannot be done without operator
intervention. If this program is set, printing will be
executed without intervention if a paper tray is
loaded with A4 paper.

NOTICE PAGE PRINTING
A notice page will be printed when the current print job cannot be run due to a system limitation and an explanation
of the limitation is too lengthy to be shown in the message display. A notice page will describe the limitation and other
possible ways instead of possibilities to run the job.
Printing of the notice page is initially disabled in the key operator programs (see "PROHIBIT NOTICE PAGE
PRINTING" on page 5-5).
A notice page will be printed in the following cases.
●When the print data of a single job is so large that it cannot be held in memory. (When there are other jobs
occupying memory, notice pages may tend to be printed more frequently even for jobs with small amounts of
data.)
●When different paper sizes have been selected for printing within a print job and one or more of the sizes cannot
be delivered to the selected exit tray or to the stapler compiler. In these cases printed paper will be delivered
partly to the specified destination (tray or compiler) and partly to another exit tray.
●When a function is selected that has been disabled using the key operator programs, such as disabling of twosided printing, disabling of the staple function, or disabling of a specified exit tray.
●An invalid account number is entered when the auditing mode has been set.
