for at least four seconds.
Notes:
• If you have not changed any menu settings, then the menu settings page lists all the factory default settings.
When you select and save other settings from the menus, they replace the factory default settings as user
default settings.
• Make sure to check the first section of the network setup page to see if the status is Connected. If the status is
Not Connected, then the LAN drop may not be active, or the network cable may be defective. Contact your
system support person for a solution, and then print another network setup page.
