Clear Button
Select the clear button if you wish to clear any numeric entry made.
Reset Button
Select the reset button to wipe any settings back to default.
Stop Button
Select the Stop Button to cancel a job.
Start Button
Select the Start Button to begin a function – to copy, to send a fax, email or scan. When the green LED is lit the
MFP is ready for you to start. If the light is not lit more information is needed before the function can begin.
Main Menu
Press the Main Menu Button to return to the main menu of options.
From here you can choose to Copy, Send/Fax, Scan to Store or Direct Print.
Copy
Select copy to enter copying mode. From here you have access to the copying menu to change any options before
you start your copy using the green Start Button. The menu can also be accessed by pressing the Copy button.
The following menus are then available to you:
Colour Mode Settings
Hit the right arrow on the control panel or ‘ok’ to enter the menu where you can choose which colour setting you
wish to use - auto colour, colour or black and white. As default the MFP is on auto colour but this can be changed
in the settings if appropriate (see Standard Settings Change section on page 9).
Auto colour – when auto colour is selected the MFP scans each sheet individually for any colour. If colour is
detected the colour toners are used. If only black and white is detected black toner is used to save money where
possible when copying documents with some colour pages. For example, if a 30 page document is placed in the
feeder but only two sheets have colour on them the customer will be charged for 28 black and white sheets and 2
colour.
Full Colour – when full colour is selected the MFP will copy each sheet using the colour toners even to make black
when the original is only black and white. For best quality colour use this option. In most office environments
auto colour should suffice.
Black and white – when black and white is chosen the MFP will copy every sheet as a black and white copy.

Paper Source Settings
The MFP is set to take paper from drawer 1 as default. To choose another source use the right arrow or ‘ok’ to
enter the menu to choose drawer 2. Unless paper has already been programmed into the stack bi pass this option
will be shadowed out until you drop the media into the stack bi pass at the front of the MFP and follow the on
screen prompts to programme in media size and then media type. Use the grey sliders to hold the paper in place.
Please note: to avoid jams and to ensure the MFP takes the right media through at the right speed you must
ensure the correct media has been programmed when using the stack bi pass. Once the stack bi pass has been
programmed the menu will then return to the set paper source screen.
Density/Background Removal Settings
Use the right arrow or ‘ok’ to enter the density screen where you can + or – the density using the left and right
arrows. In here if you choose the ‘background button’ you can enter a menu that will allow you to remove any
background colour or fine adjust it to make it lighter or darker. For example, when copying a document printed on
yellow paper you may not wish to copy the yellow background or would like to reduce it. Choose whether to
remove it or adjust it. When you choose to fine adjust you will be able to choose a specific colour (yellow, red,
green or blue) by highlighting it, then increase or decrease the colour using the left and right arrows. Once you
have changed all appropriate colours choose ‘set’ with the right hand menu button to save your changes.
Various 2 sided Settings
Two sided is turned off as default although this can be altered if necessary (see Standard Settings Change section
on page 10). To turn on a 2 sided mode to save paper use the right hand arrow or ‘ok’ to enter the 2 sided menu.
Here you can choose from the following :
1 to 2 sided (to make a 1 sided original back to back)
2 to 2 sided (to make a 2 sided original back to back)
2 to 1 sided (to make a 2 sided original back to single sides)

You can also enter the ‘Layout Settings‘ menu with the right hand menu button, where you can choose if your
original orientation is vertical or horizontal to create long or short edge two siding depending on how you would
like to read your completed document (choose book type if your document opens like a book and calendar type if
your document opens like a calendar). For example, if you have a landscape report that you wish to read down the
back of one sheet onto the next ensure horizontal orientation and calendar type is chosen.
Copy Ratio Settings
Use the right arrow or hit ‘ok’ to enter the menu. As default the MFP is set to 100%. To save time choose from the
available short cuts e.g. A5 to A4 or A4 to A5 etc as appropriate. The maximum enlargement is 200% and
minimum reduction is 50%. To enter a custom size enter ‘Set Copy Ratio’ and use the key pad to enter a
percentage.
Original Image Quality Settings
The MFP is set to Text/Photo/Map as default to ensure a good quality copy of all documents but this can be
changed (see Standard Settings Change section on page 10). To choose another setting to specify that you are
copying a document that is just a photo or just text choose from the options to be more specific. In here you can
also choose ‘Priority Level’ using the right hand menu button to boost the priority of the scan to the photo part of
your original or the text part, depending on if one is more important/less clear than the other. Use the left and
right arrows to move the pointer and hit enter to confirm.
Copy Multiple Pages onto 1 Page
This is turned off as default, therefore, one page will copy onto one sheet unless you scroll down to choose 2 on 1
or 4 on 1. This is usually used as a paper saving option when full size originals are not needed.
Sharpness Settings
If you would like to increase or decrease sharpness enter this menu and use the left and right arrows to boost or
reduce the scroll bar. Hit ‘ok’ to confirm.
Frame Erase
As default this is turned off. In this menu you can choose to do an original frame erase, book frame erase and
binding erase to white out any marks on the edges of your original.
Original book frame erase – in here you can choose to put a white border around the whole document in case
there are any marks in the margins, such as hand written notes etc. You will be prompted to set the original size
(A4, A5 or B5). Hit ‘ok’ to confirm. You will then be asked to set Frame Erase width. As default this is set to 6 mm
of white. You can increase this menu using the up arrow or by using the numeric pad. The minimum frame erase
is 1mm. The maximum is 50mm.
If you wish to set a different measurement for each side of the document enter the ‘Uniform Margin’ menu using
the right hand menu button.
Book Frame Erase – this option will put a white band up the middle of the document when copying from a book –
this eradicates the dark mark in the centre of the copy where light often gets in as result of not being able to get
the centre of the book flush on the glass.

MFD User Guide for Copying
Binding Erase – set Hole Punch Location – this is used when a mark, such as hole punching, is just down one
margin of a document. Choose to set the left, right, top or bottom margin as appropriate and set the
measurement as highlighted above.
Colour Balance
If you would like to manipulate the colour output of the MFP, rather than using the default (which uses equal
amounts of colour to make as accurate colour as possible), enter this menu to change the colour balance.
Choose the colour you wish to reduce or boost from the menu using the scroll wheel or arrows and + or – the
amount of colour using the left and right arrows. Please note that adding or reducing one colour will effect all
colours mixed by the MFP as all colours are created using the 4 toners (cyan, magenta, yellow and black). Hit
‘Set’ using the left hand menu button once you are happy with your settings. If you wish to save the changes so
they may be used again (for example for a specific job at a later date) enter the ‘Register/Erase’ menu using the
right hand menu button. It is useful to ‘Register the Settings’ and ‘Register a Name’ for the settings you are saving
using the right hand ‘Register/Erase’ button. If you wish to delete a stored setting an ‘erase’ option is available in
here. You can save up to 4 entries.
Collate
As default collating is turned off. This means if you ask for three copies of a multi-page document you will get 3
copies of page one, three copies of page two etc. If you would like your copies collating into sets enter the menu
using ‘ok’ or the right hand arrow and turn collate on to make copies in page order. If you would like to change
this default see the Standard Settings Change on page 10 for further details.
Copies
This is set to 1 as default. If you wish to make more copies enter the menu and using the up and down arrows to
increase or decrease the number. Alternatively use the numeric pad. The minimum number of copies is 1 and
maximum is 99.
Standard Settings Change
Use this menu if you wish to change any of the default settings of the MFP, for example to make black and white or
two sided the default. Select the options you wish to be the default (as if you were going to make a copy) then
enter this menu and choose ‘Register’. You will be asked ‘Make the current settings standard?’ – choose ‘yes’ if
you wish to save them. These will now be your default.
