Powering the System On/Off
Although the printer and controller may be powered on and off manually, the
recommended procedure is to allow the Power Saver feature to manage the machine
power.
Using the Power Saver Feature
Product Overview
The Power Saver feature automatically reduces the power consumption when no print
data is received within a preset period. The Power Saver feature has two modes, [Low
Power mode] and [Sleep mode].
The machine enters the [Low Power mode] after a preset period elapses. The machine
transitions to the [Sleep mode] from the [Low Power mode] if the machine remains idle
for an additional period.
2
Low Power Mode
Note: Refer to "Timers" (P.134) to learn how to customize the Power Saver mode settings.
In this mode, the power to the control panel and the fuser is reduced. As the machine
enters the [Low Power mode], the touch screen shuts down and the <Power Saver>
button on the control panel illuminates.
Sleep Mode
In this mode, the power is reduced more than in the [Low Power mode]. During the
transition from the Low Power mode to the Sleep mode, the touch screen will remain
dark and the <Power Saver> button will remain illuminated.
Entering the Power Saver Mode
The Power Saver Mode may be entered either automatically or manually.
Automatic Method: The machine will enter the
[Low Power mode] after a preset period elapses.
The machine will enter the [Sleep mode] from the
[Low Power mode] if the machine remains idle for
an additional, preset period.
Manual Method: Press the <Power Saver>
button on the control panel. The button will
illuminate, the machine will enter the [Low Power
mode], and the touch screen’s backlight will

Important • Jams may occur if the media being used differs from the current media settings. Always
select the correct media size, type, and thickness to achieve the best results.
Note: G.S.M. (g/m2) is a measure of a substance/weight of a paper expressed in grams per square
meter, which does not depend on the number of sheets in the ream.
Handling and Storing Media
Handling Media
Do not use media that have been folded, creased, or heavily curled, because media
jams may result.
Storing Media
The optimum environment in which to store paper media is a humidity of 40 to 45 %.
Keep the following in mind when storing paper media:
36
z
Moisture is not good for media. For storage, wrap the media in wrapping paper and
store it in a comparatively dry place. Tracing paper, especially, should be put in a
plastic or moisture-proof bag that contains desiccant.

Step 3 Scanning the Original
Follow the procedure below to scan the original.
Important • A document jam may occur if you pull or press down too hard on an original while it scans.
• To prevent document jams when copying originals that contain holes, orient the original so
that the holes feed in last.
1
Orient the original face down, with one edge
aligned with the original guide, and then evenly
insert the lead edge into the scanner. When the
scanner detects the original, it will feed it a short
distance and stop briefly, then complete the scan
automatically.
Note: Hold the original down flat with two hands (one
Copy
on either side of the arrow shown in the
graphic) while it feeds into the starting position.
Doing this helps prevent wrinkles that may
result in dark areas on the copy. The document
may jam if you release it before it stops
feeding.
Note: If the document does not feed automatically, the Scan Start mode may be set to [Manual
3
Start]. In this case, press the <Start> button. For more information about the Scan Start
mode, refer to "Scan Start" (P.149).
Note: The original guide can be moved to the right to scan an oversized original, or an original
with hanging holes.
Note: If a problem occurs during scanning, an error message will appear on the touch screen.
Solve the problem as instructed in the message.

If the scanner is equipped with front return guides, the original will exit toward the front
of the machine. You may wish to guide the lead edge of the original as it travels
toward you.

Step 3 Scanning the Document
Follow the procedure below to scan a document.
Important • A document jam may occur if you press down too hard on the original, pull it during
scanning, or release it before it stops feeding.
• To prevent document jams when copying originals that contain holes, orient the original so
that the holes feed in last.
• The original guide can be moved to the right to scan an oversized original, or an original with
hanging holes.
Orient the original face down, with one edge
aligned with the original guide, and then evenly
insert the lead edge into the scanner. When the
scanner detects the original it will feed it a short
distance (prefeed) and stop briefly, then
complete the scan automatically.
4
Note: If the document does not feed automatically, the
Scan Start mode may be set to [Manual Start]. In this
case, press the <Start> button. For more information
about the Scan Start mode, refer to "Scan Start"
(P.149).
Note: If a problem occurs during scanning, an error
message will appear on the touch screen. Solve
the problem as instructed in the message.
2
If the scanner is equipped with front return guides, the original will exit to the front of
the machine. You may wish to guide the lead edge of the original as it travels toward
you.
3
The system will automatically assign a file name, in the format “0000nnnn.xxx” (where
“n” is the sequential number assigned to the image file, and "xxx" is the selected file
type extension, e.g., TIF, PDF, etc.).

Job Accounting
Note: The Job Accounting feature is an option, requiring a Feature Key to activate. If
you obtain this feature, the System Administrator can enable it at any time by sending
a special feature key file to the Copier/Printer. Once the feature is enabled, it remains
enabled (even following upgrades to the system software). Contact your Xerox sales
representative for ordering information.
Job accounting tracks copy, scan, and print media usage. Usage is expressed as the
area and length of the media scanned or used. The Account Management Tool (AMT),
or another external accounting tool, is used to assign a User ID, Account ID, and Printer
ID. It then collects and tallies the stored data from the networked devices. For the Xerox
6204 Wide Format Solution with FreeFlow Accxes Print Server, Job Accounting can be
set up from both the control panel and the Web Printer Manager Tool. The default

Gently remove the paper, taking care not to tear it. If paper is torn while it is being
removed from the machine, remove all torn pieces. Make sure that no paper scraps
remain inside the machine.
If a paper jam message displays again after you have cleared the paper jam, paper is
probably jammed at another location. Clear this by following the message’s
instructions.
When you finish cleaning a paper jam, printing automatically resumes from the state
before the paper jam occurred.
WARNING: When removing jammed paper, make sure that no pieces of torn paper are
left in the machine. A piece of paper remaining in the machine potentially could cause
a fire.
WARNING: If a sheet of paper is wrapped around the heat roller, or the jammed paper
is difficult or impossible to see, do not try to remove it yourself. Doing so may cause
injuries or burns. Switch off the machine immediately and contact your Xerox Customer
Support Center.
Important • Always check the touch screen message to identify the location of a paper jam before
attempting to remedy the problem. Opening a media tray before knowing the paper jam
location may tear the paper, leaving pieces inside the machine. This condition may cause
machine malfunctions.
• If a piece of jammed paper remains inside the machine, the paper jam message will not
disappear from the touch screen.
• Paper jams can be cleared with the machine still on. When the power is turned off, all
information stored to the machine's memory will be erased.
CAUTION: Do not touch the components inside the machine. Doing so can cause print defects.
