MAKING COPIES
This chapter describes basic copying functions and some other copying functions using the
bypass tray.
NORMAL COPYING
2
Making copies
This copier has two document input stations -reversing single pass feeder (RSPF) for automatic
document feeding and an original table for manual handling of documents. The RSPF is designed
to hold up to 30 originals measuring from 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" to 10" x 14" and weighing from 14 to 23
lbs.
When copying from the RSPF, two-side originals can be copied automatically without having to
manually turn them over.
Automatic two-sided copying can also be performed with this copier. When copying from onesided originals to two-sided copies, copying orientation can be selected between Turn on Long
Edge and Turn on Short Edge.

●
When making two-sided copies from the original table, the copy paper size
must be letter. When making two-sided copies from the RSPF, letter, legal,
and invoice sizes can be used. Non-standard size paper cannot be used.
● When making two-sided copies from the RSPF, a multiple number of copies
cannot be set.
● When making two-sided copies, the bypass tray cannot be used.
● When using two-sided invoice size originals from the RSPF, be sure to place
them in the landscape orientation. Otherwise, an original misfeed will occur.
Ensure that paper of the desired size is set in the paper tray. See page 10, LOADING
COPY PAPER. When copying onto paper larger than 8-1/2" x 11" size, pull out the
paper output tray extension. If you use another tray, use the tray select (
) key to
select the desired tray.

NORMAL COPYING
Turn the power switch on.
The ready (
) indicator will light up.
●
The copier will enter a power save mode once the set time has elapsed without
any copier operation after the last copy of a run is made or power is turned
on.
The settings of the power save modes can be modified. See page 21, USER
PROGRAMS.
● The copier will return to the initial settings a preset amount of time after the
last copy is made. The preset amount of time (auto clear time) can be changed.
See page 21, USER PROGRAMS.

Making copies
Place the original(s) face up in the document feeder tray or face down on the original
table.
A. When using the RSPF:
(1) Make sure that no original is left on the original table.
(2) Adjust the original guides to the size of originals.
(3) Set the originals face up in the document feeder tray.
●
Before feeding originals in the document feeder tray, be sure to remove any
staples or paper clips from them.
● Before placing curled or wavy originals into the document feeding tray, be
sure to flatten them. If not, original misfeeds may result.
● The RSPF ( ) indicator on the operation panel will light up. If this indicator
does not light up, the originals are not properly set or the RSPF is not properly
closed.
● Badly damaged originals may misfeed in the RSPF. It is recommended that
such originals be copied from the original table.
● Special originals such as transparency film should not be fed through the
RSPF, but should be placed directly on the original table.
● Image loss (max. 5/32" (4mm)) can occur at the leading and trailing edges of
the copies. Also image loss (max. 11/64" (4.5mm) in total) can occur along
the other edges of the copies. It can be 15/64" (6mm) (max.) at the trailing
edge of the second copy of two-sided copying.

COPIER TROUBLE?
This chapter describes misfeed removal and troubleshooting.
MISFEED REMOVAL
When the misfeed ( ) indicator blinks or
blinks in the display, the copier will stop because
of a misfeed.
If a misfeed occurs when using the RSPF, a number may appear in the display after a minus
sign. This indicates the number of the originals that must be returned to the document feeder
tray after a misfeed. Return the required number of originals. Then this number will disappear
when copying is resumed or the clear ( ) key is pressed.
When the RSPF misfeeds an original sheet, the copier will stop and the RSPF misfeed ( )
indicator will blink, while the misfeed ( ) indicator will remain off. For a misfeed of originals in
the RSPF, see “D Misfeed in the RSPF” on page 30.
