1System overview of the Xerox
DocuPrint 180 LPS
This chapter explains in detail the base components and the optional
components of the Xerox DocuPrint 180 Laser Printing System
(LPS).
The Xerox DocuPrint 180 LPS is a versatile, high-performance
printing system that processes and prints data from a variety of
sources. It enables host mainframe computers and networkconnected devices (such as workstations and graphic scanners) to
produce publications and other documents, incorporating graphics,
forms, logos, signatures, and a variety of fonts. With the Xerox
DocuPrint 180, management information systems (MIS) and data
processing (DP) environments have a high-performance printer in
which built-in intelligence eliminates the need for the host computer
to store and manage forms, fonts, and other document resources.
Data is printed at a rate of up to 180 pages per minute, or up to 206
pages per minute with the optional 7 by 10 input enablement kit. A
variety of fonts ranging in size from 3 points to 36 points, in all four
orientations (portrait, inverse portrait, landscape, inverse landscape),
and many publishing typefaces are available to meet your printing
requirements. In addition to the standard set of fonts that is delivered
with the LPS, special or customized fonts can be developed by the
Xerox Font Center or by Xerox Limited.

Inverter feeder/stacker modules
Two processor feeder trays are located in the main part of the printer.
•
The main tray (tray 1) holds 1100 sheets of 20 pound/75 gsm
paper.
•
The auxiliary tray (tray 2) holds 600 sheets of 20 pound/75 gsm
paper.
•
If configured, trays 1 and 2 can handle paper sized from 7 by 10
inches/178 by 254 mm to 9.05 by 14.02 inches/230 by 356 mm.
There is one high-capacity feeder (HCF) tray in each of the feeder/
stacker modules (trays 3, 4, 5 and 6). The HCF trays are the primary
paper supply for the printer. If configured, each tray can handle paper
sized from 7 by 10 inches/178 by 254 mm to 14.33 by 17 inches/364
by 432 mm.
Note: In order to print on paper sized 7 by 10 inches/178 by 254
mm, you must have the 7 X 10 enablement kit. Refer to the section
“Optional printer components“ later in this chapter for more
information.
The input and output page numbers vary for each HCF tray as shown
in table 1-1.

High-capacity stacker bins
The Xerox DocuPrint 180 LPS contains up to four high-capacity
stacker (HCS) bins as part of the feeder/stacker modules (stacker
bins A, B, C and D). Figure 1-8 shows two HCS bins. Refer to the
section “Optional printer components” for more information on the
optional feeder/stacker modules.
Figure 1-8.
HCS bins
Each HCS can hold 2500 sheets of 20 pound/75 gsm paper. The
paper can be stacked onto the bin platform, a container on top of the
bin platform, or a pallet without its container (for container sizes 11
by 17 inches or A3 only). The stacking capacity is approximately 100150 sheets less when stacking into a container.
It is also possible to select the level to which paper will be stacked in
the HCS. Refer to the “Status and print tasks” chapter for additional
information.
A stacking elevator maintains the paper at the proper level for
stacking and lowers the stack for unloading. There is an offset
mechanism that offsets printed sets toward the front or back of the
HCS bin. Each HCS bin has unlinked double doors to provide you
with easy, yet safe, access for unloading paper from the printer.

Printer control console
The printer control console, shown in figure 1-10, is a color monitor
located on top of the printer. It contains message areas and graphic
displays that alert you to paper jams and other fault and status
conditions (such as low dry ink). It also contains buttons which allow
you to control certain functions of the printer (for example, continuing
an interrupted job) without returning to the PC UI. The printer control
console has the following features:
•
Local controls and displays for jam clearance, paper loading/
unloading, and diagnostics/service (used by the service
representative). Two types of messages are displayed on the
printer control console: fault messages, which relate to printer
malfunctions, and information messages, which relate to printer
conditions such as low dry ink.
•
Touch-sensitive areas that allow you to select options by
touching the printer control console screen. A tone sounds
when you touch one of these areas.
•
Printer alarm consisting of sets of three beeps, for a duration of
ten seconds. This tone is generated by any event that stops
printer operation (for example, a paper jam).
You can deactivate the alarm through the PC UI (refer to the
“System control tasks” chapter for instructions). The tone stops
after three cycles, or when the fault condition is cleared or
clearing has started (for example, doors or covers specified in
the clearance instructions are opened). You can also stop the
tone by pressing one of the printer control console buttons or by
selecting a function through the touch screen.
•
To prevent monitor burnout on the PC UI, a screen saver
feature automatically blanks the screen.
To return to the normal desktop once the PC UI is in screen
saver mode, simply move the mouse, click a mouse button, or
press any key.

Performing operator tasks through the PC UI
The PC UI gives you two options for performing operator tasks:
•
•
Selecting tasks through windows
Entering commands through the Messages window.
Performing tasks through windows

window.
Figure 2-16. Messages window
Place the cursor in the Messages window and click once with the left
mouse button or the <ENTER> key to activate the window. Then
enter the command at the cursor.
Key-in conventions
Follow these conventions when entering commands:
•
The system is ready to receive commands when this message
appears in the Messages window:
OS1000 READY FOR COMMANDS
•
All commands may be abbreviated to the first three characters
or spelled out fully and correctly.
•
Commands are executed by pressing <ENTER>, except for
those entered with the function keys.
•
Spaces or commas may be used to separate command
parameters.
•
Error and information messages from the system are preceded
by OS and a four-digit code indicating the severity level. Refer
to the Xerox DocuPrint 180 LPS Message Guide for information
on a particular error message.
•
A message acknowledging your request appears as positive
feedback to you. An error message appears when a command
is entered incorrectly:
OS2710 INVALID COMMAND, PLEASE REENTER
2-22
XEROX DOCUPRINT 180 LPS OPERATOR GUIDE
USING THE PC UI
Guide command conventions
When command instructions are given in this guide, the following
conventions apply:
•
Capital letters represent command keywords, the required part
of the command.
•
Lowercase letters, appearing in italics, represent data that
changes each time you use the command. For example, the
number of copies and the name of a form can vary for each job.
•
Characters enclosed in square brackets ([ ]) are optional. You
key them in only when you need them. For example, when you
see [copies] in a command and you do not key in a specific
number, the system automatically prints one copy.
•
•
Characters enclosed in curly braces ({ }) are required.
Options are separated by a vertical line (|).
Terminal emulation mode (TEM)
In certain instances (for example, when performing the Problem
task), the PC UI display mimics a system controller terminal’s screen
for the duration of the task. This display mode is referred to as TEM.
Once the task is finished, the desktop again appears on the screen.
Tasks performed in TEM mode are listed in the appropriate Menu
window with “(TEM)” following the task name.
For example, when you select the “Problem . . . (TEM)” option from
the System Control menu window, the PC UI is automatically put in
TEM mode so that you can perform the Problem task.
Note: After finishing a task in TEM mode, you must wait for object
mode to display before beginning another task in TEM mode. Failure
to do so causes a system crash.

Important facts about paper
As the operator of the Xerox DocuPrint 180 LPS printer, you need to
be aware of the importance of taking good care of the paper used in
it. Using the correct type of paper and taking time to store and
condition it properly helps to keep your printer running at optimum
speed and efficiency, with fewer time-wasting paper jams.
For additional information about paper, refer to Helpful Facts About
Paper.
Paper storage
Follow these storage guidelines:
XEROX DOCUPRINT 180 LPS OPERATOR GUIDE
•
•
•
Do not unwrap the paper stock until it is needed.
•
When the paper stock is taken from a storage area with a
different humidity or temperature, keep it in the room where it
will be used for at least 48 hours before loading it into the LPS.
Store the reams of paper in their carton.
Do not leave the paper cartons directly on the floor. Place
something beneath them, for example, wooden pallets.

PAPER FACTS
Paper sizing and print jobs
The Xerox DocuPrint 180 LPS feeder trays have edge guide sensors
that detect paper length and width. The LPS selects the correct
feeder tray(s) for the print job, based on the paper size specified in
the job.
•
•
If an exact match is found, the print job proceeds.
If an exact match is not found, depending on how the job was
set up, one of the following occurs:
—
A message appears on the PC UI or system controller
display and the printer control console telling you to load
different paper or inquiring whether it is permissible to print
the job on paper that is larger than specified for the job.
—
The job prints on paper larger than specified for the job.
—
The job is aborted.
Note: The LPS never prints a job on paper known to be
smaller than that specified for the job.
If you encounter any problems related to paper sizing, contact your
lead operator, systems specialist, or Xerox support specialist

Stacker bins
The Xerox DocuPrint 180 LPS can have up to four high-capacity
stacker (HCS) bins. (Refer to the “System overview of the Xerox
DocuPrint 180 LPS” chapter for additional information on the highcapacity stacker bins.)
•
You can lower, pull out, and unload any bin not currently in use,
without interrupting printing, as long as another HCS is ready to
receive paper.
•
If you select a bin that is in use, the printer begins stacking in
the next defined high-capacity stacker bin if it is available. If no
stacker bin is available, printing stops.
•
Once a sheet is delivered to a stacker bin, each subsequent
sheet must be within 25 mm of each dimension of the first
sheet.
Refer to table 3-6 for additional information on performance of the
high-capacity stacker bins.

Step 6.
If you are using a container or pallet, empty it and return it to the
stacker bin.
Note: An empty container or a pallet must be in place if the bin
is set for container stacking.
Note the following facts reagarding the container:
•
The empty container must be the same size as the previous
container if the bin is in an auto switching combination or if the
print job is not complete and stacking will continue into the bin.
•

Sample tray and purge tray
This section describes the sample and purge trays of the Xerox
DocuPrint 180 LPS.
Sample tray
Samples requested during operation of the LPS are delivered to the
sample tray. The sample tray can hold up to 100 sheets. It can
handle paper sized from 8 by 10 inches/203 by 254 mm to 11.69 by
17 inches/297 by 432 mm.
Note the following:
•
Optional 7 X 10 enablement kit allows paper sized from 7 by 10
inches/178 by 254 mm to 14.33 by 17 inches/364 by 432 mm.
•
Since the sample tray can receive waste sheets purged after a
paper jam, always clear the sample tray after clearing a jam.
This prevents waste sheets from being confused with good
sample sheets.
•
No message appears when the sample tray is full. Since a
paper jam can occur if the tray is overfilled, empty the sample
tray regularly, if it is in use.
Purge tray
Aborted sheets (that is, sheets damaged during printing or cleared
before or after a paper jam) are sent to the purge tray. The purge tray
can hold up to 100 sheets. It can handle paper sized from 8 by 10
inches/203 by 254 mm to 11.69 by 17 inches/297 by 432 mm.
Note the following:
3-24
•
Optional 7 X 10 enablement kit allows paper sized from 7 by 10
inches/178 by 254 mm to 14.33 by 17 inches/364 by 432 mm.
•
No message appears when the purge tray is full. Since a paper
jam can occur if the tray is overfilled, empty the purge tray at
least once a day.
•
•
Sheets may be purged before, during, or after print jobs.
Sheets are sent to the purge tray following a fuser area jam.
The sheets purged at that time clean the fuser area, ensuring
good print quality for your subsequent jobs.

The Attention light can be enabled or disabled for either or both
modes—steady and flashing. If, for example, you disable the steady
mode of the Attention light, but leave the flashing mode enabled, the
Attention light does not go on when a condition such as low dry ink
occurs (and the corresponding Hint icons do not appear on the PC UI
or the printer control console), but the Attention light still flashes
when the printer stops due to a fault (and the corresponding Fault
icons still appear on the PC UI and the printer control console).

Energy saver
To conserve energy and prolong the life of some of its critical parts,
the LPS was designed with a power saver mode. After a
predetermined period of inactivity, portions of the printer are shut
down. The time-out period is factory set, but it can be readjusted.
Heating and cooling are the most costly uses of electricity.
Therefore, maintaining the system at full temperature while idle is not
cost effective. After four hours of inactivity (or whatever time period
you set), the fusing system shuts down. Once it cools down, it
requires the same four- to seven-minute warm-up time as if the
system had been turned off.
Use the Energy Saver task to readjust the time-out period. The
energy saver timer starts whenever the printer stops.

Close. Close the window.
Test. Print a sample with the new alignment applied. If a job is
currently printing, a page from the job with the new alignment
applied is delivered to the sample tray. If a print job is not
running, the test form is delivered to the sample tray. (Refer to
figure 5-5.).
To change the alignment for forms:
Enter ALIGN to display the current setting (normal operating setting).
For example:
OS1380 ALIGNMENT IS 1 SCAN LINES AND 0 DOTS
Step 2.
To change these values (and move the image to correspond to your
form), key in ALIGN plus the new line value and the new dot value.
There is a space between ALIGN and the number for the new line
value, but only a comma between the values for the lines and dots.
For example, if the initial alignment was 1 and 0, ALIGN 16,20
changes the initial alignment by 15 lines and 20 dots.
When using the test pattern, which is in landscape format, adding
dots moves the image to the right; adding scan lines moves the
image toward the bottom of the page. You may move the image by
adding as many as 296 lines and up to 1496 dots. To go in the
opposite direction, subtract dots or lines. You may not use negative
numbers.
Step 3.

To check the amount of shift, key in SAMPLE TEST.FRM to print the
built-in test form (see figure 5-5), or you may print a sample of the
actual job on the preprinted form to be used.

Step 4.
Sample test form
If further adjustments are needed, repeat steps 2 and 3 until you are
satisfied with the results.
There is another method used to set alignment with the systemgenerated test pattern. Enter the ALIGN command with the new
values, followed immediately (no spaces) by, TEST (for example,
ALIGN 3,8,TEST). This command sets the new values and
automatically generates a single test form sample for your
evaluation. The new values are printed near the top of the form.
The ALIGN, TEST command may be used any time you wish to
generate a sample test form with the current values printed on it.
(You could use this command in step 1, instead of the basic ALIGN
command.)
Note: Remember to restore the printer to its original values. Enter
ALIGN and the original values, whatever they were at the beginning.

Fonts/forms/graphics
In order to improve printer throughput, you can define the maximum
number of fonts, forms, and graphics that the system stores in
memory during a print job. The values remain in effect until you
change them or perform an LPS Update or Sysgen task. (Refer to
the Xerox DocuPrint 180 LPS System Generation Guide for
additional information.)
Use the Fonts/Forms/Graphics task to set the maximum number for
the following:
•
Fonts. Sets the maximum number of active fonts per print job.
No single printed page can have more fonts than this number.
Note: This number must include all fonts used on the form as
well as in the variable data.
If the number of fonts specified is exceeded during a print job,
the job aborts and a message displays in a message window on
the PC UI or the display screen of the system controller.
•
Forms. Sets the maximum number of active forms per print job.
Specifying a number larger than one allows form changes on a
page to page basis without negative effects on printing speed
as long as there is room for all the forms in system memory.
•
Graphics. Sets the maximum number of active graphics per
print job. No single printed page may call for more than 16
graphics.
Note: This number must also include all graphics used on a

Handle open-reel tapes
Since improper handling can cause damage to tapes and result in
unreadable data, store tapes in their protective containers when they
are not being used (see figure 7-22). Most read/write errors are
caused by dust or dirt on the read/write head, transferred there by the
tapes.
Figure 7-22. Open-reel tapes and their protective containers
Make sure to follow these handling tips:
File protection
•
•
Do not spill tape off the reel onto the floor or any dusty surface.
•
Do not smoke near the tape transport or tape storage area.
Tobacco smoke and ash are especially damaging to tapes.
•
Do not place tapes near line printers or other devices that
produce paper dust.
•
Do not place tapes near electric motors or any other magnetic
sources that may erase data.
•
Do not press the edges of the reel together. It can lead to tape
edge damage when winding or unwinding tapes.
•
•
Do not pull on the end of the tape to tighten it on the reel.
•
Store tapes in the same climate-controlled environment in
which you keep your system. Excessive heat can damage
tapes.
•
Store tapes vertically in racks.
Do not touch the flat sides of the tape between the beginning of
tape (BOT) and end of tape (EOT) markers. In addition to
possibly causing loss of data, oil from fingers attracts dust and
dirt and leaves deposits on the read/write head.
Ensure the tape drive components are dry after cleaning them
before loading the tape.
Files on an open-reel tape can be protected or written over,
depending on whether or not there is a write-enable ring on the tape
reel, sensed by the tape drive.
When the write-enable ring is absent, the tape is protected and you
can perform only read functions, including printing data from the
tape. When the write-enable is present, you can both read and write
(add files) on that tape.

Handle cartridge tapes
Follow these instructions when handling cartridge tapes:
7-22
•
Never try to pry open the feed slot door or force a tape cartridge
into or out of a drive.
•
Never leave a cartridge in a tape drive when powering off. You
could damage data on the tape and the tape drive components.
•
When cartridges are not being used, store them vertically in a
dirt-free area that matches as closely as possible the
environment of the room where you have the tape system. If the
temperature or humidity are different, bring cartridges into the
tape system environment 24 hours in advance to condition
them.
•
Never remove the protective wrapping until you are ready to
use the cartridge.
•
Every time you pick up a cartridge, ensure the leader block is
latched.
•
Never carry two or more cartridges loose in a container. Leader
blocks can snag on other cartridges and become unlatched.
•
•
•
•
•
Keep cartridges clean and dry.
•
Never place cartridges near electric motors or any other
magnetic sources that may erase data.
•
To clean a cartridge, wipe off dust, dirt, and moisture with a lintfree cloth. If you must use a cleaning solution, ensure it is made
specifically for cleaning cartridges. Never allow the solution to
touch the tape.
•
If a leader block (blank section at beginning of tape) comes off,
but there is no other obvious damage to the cartridge or the
tape, a leader block repair kit may be used. The kit allows you
to reattach the block and use the cartridge one more time to
copy the data onto a new cartridge.
•
If a label starts to peel off, replace it immediately to avoid
loading/unloading problems.
•
Do not write on a label that is on a cartridge. If you want to
change a label, fill out a new one, remove the old one, and
replace it with the new one.
•
Place the volume/serial number label on the side of the
cartridge opposite the file-protect selector and the customer
label on the top surface of the cartridge. Use the recessed
areas provided for them. When you want a new label on a
cartridge, remove the old one before you put on a new one.
Figure 7-37 shows the 1/2 inch cartridge tape labels.
Never release a leader block and pull tape from the cartridge.
Never open a cartridge; you will probably damage the tape.
Never expose the tape or cartridges to direct sunlight.
Never smoke near the tape transport or cartridge storage
areas. Tobacco smoke and ash are especially damaging to
tapes.

A 1/2 inch cartridge tape has a thumbwheel on the side of the
cartridge that allows you to protect or write on a tape. When the white
dot is showing in the window, the cartridge is protected and you can
perform only read functions. When the white dot is not showing, you

HIP PRINTING TASKS
Start Job task through command line
To start or continue printing jobs from HIP’s internal job queue, enter
the following command:
HIP START [DUMP][JID[,...]]
If no jid (job identification) parameters are specified, the entire queue
is processed in the order the jobs were received (or as reordered by
a previous START command).
If jids are specified, those jobs are reordered to the top of the job
queue, so they will be the next jobs submitted to OCS for processing.
Jobs that have already been submitted to OCS cannot be reordered.
The START commands issued to OCS are displayed when the job is
submitted.
If the optional DUMP parameter is specified, the specified job, or the
next job in the HIP’s queue, is submitted using the START command
parameters specified by the DUMPJOB command in the HIP file.
Only one job is submitted. After the job is submitted, HIP effects a
HIP STOP command.
If any listed jid is not eligible, it is listed in the message:
HP1150 CANNOT START JOB(S): n [,...]
Note that HIP may be taken offline temporarily with the HIP START
command. Should this occur, processing automatically continues
where it left off when HIP is put online again; that is, files are
accepted immediately from the host and printed from HIP’s internal
job queue.
If printing is to stop while the printing system is taken offline and
brought back online, enter the HIP STOP command. (Refer to the
next section of this chapter.)

STATUS AND PRINT TASKS
Understanding clusters
A cluster is a group of related feeder trays. The trays assigned to a
cluster usually contain the same size and type of paper. All trays
within a cluster are considered equal when the LPS identifies which
tray will feed a sheet of paper. This allows common stock to feed from
more than one tray.
Clusters are set up and named by the person who creates the job.
The cluster name consists of 1 to 6 alphanumeric characters,
beginning with an alphabetic character. The name can represent the
type of stock used in the job (for example, BLUE). The cluster
definition and name allow the LPS to locate the feeder trays with the
correct paper stock used for a specific job. Clusters allow you to use
more than one size of paper within a job and to use groups of trays
within a job as if they were only one tray.
Based on messages from the LPS, you load the correct stock into the
feeder trays and tell the LPS which stock is in which tray (refer to the
“Tray loading and clusters” section later in this chapter). The LPS
then selects the stock as required by the print job, selecting a feeder
tray for each page by checking the cluster name and paper size
associated with the page.
You can display the current clusters, override the preferred trays
recommended by the cluster, or choose a specific cluster or tray to
be used for feeding paper for a job. For additional information on
clusters, refer to the Xerox DocuPrint 180 LPS Operations
Reference.

11Maintenance tasks
This chapter contains instructions for performing routine
maintenance tasks for the LPS. The activities described here are
essential to maintain system reliability and productivity.
This chapter also contains instructions for using the custom transfer
assist blade.
Precautions you should take
For your own safety and to protect the DocuPrint 180LPS, follow
these precautions whenever you perform maintenance tasks:
•
Use only replacement supplies recommended by Xerox or
Xerox Limited.
•
Keep replacement supplies in stock. (Refer to appendix B,
“Supplies.”)
•
Handle all system parts carefully when performing maintenance
tasks.
•
To prevent spillage, always use a drop cloth when replacing the
dry ink, dry ink waste container, or fuser agent.
Cleaning supplies
The cleaning supplies necessary to complete the cleaning tasks are
described in this chapter, where appropriate. Additional information
can be found in the “Supplies" appendix.

MAINTENANCE TASKS
Maintaining the printer
When supplies for the LPS need to be replaced, for instance, when
the dry ink supply is low, the following indications appear:
•
•
If enabled, the Attention light goes on.
•
The Hint icon appears on the PC UI and the printer control
console.
A message and instructions appear on the printer control
console.
Note: If the Attention light is turned off, the Hint icon does not
appear.
To ensure that the LPS runs efficiently, replace the appropriate
supplies as soon as possible after seeing the indications. If you do
not do so, the printer eventually stops and does not continue until you
replace the supplies.
Replacing the dry ink cartridge
Caution: To prevent dry ink spillage, remove the cartridge only
when directed to do so by a message on the printer control console.
Follow this procedure to replace the dry ink cartridge:
Step 1.
Open the printer’s right and left doors and locate the dry ink area at
the left side of the printer (see figure 11-1). There are step-by-step
instructions on the panel next to the dry ink cartridge.
Figure 11-1. Locating the dry ink cartridge

12Problem solving tasks
This chapter contains instructions for diagnosing and solving
common problems that may arise when operating the LPS. Also
included are instructions for placing a service call, when needed.
LPS problems
The following sections deal with LPS problems.
Fault masking and the printer control console
The Xerox DocuPrint 180 LPS allows you to continue printing while
certain faults or conditions exist in areas of the printer not currently
being used. The LPS does this by “masking” the fault or condition
and continuing to print the current job. For example, if you are
printing a report using feeder tray 1 and stacking into stacker bin A,
the LPS continues printing even if a jam exists in feeder tray 2 or if
stacker bin B is full. Whenever there is a masked fault or condition,
the Hint icon (a light yellow circle with an asterisk inside) appears on
the printer control console and the Attention light goes on. If a
condition is being masked, such as low dry ink, a message also
appears in line 3 of the message area of the printer control console.
The message is preceded by an asterisk. In the case of either a
masked fault or condition, the Hint icon appears on the PC UI and a
message appears in the Messages window. To display the area
containing the masked fault (for example, the location of the paper
jam), touch the Fault List icon on the printer control console.
The Fault List screen appears. (See figure 12-1.)

PROBLEM SOLVING TASKS
Figure 12-1. Fault List screen
The Fault List screen displays any outstanding fault codes and
shows a mimic of the printer, with the area containing the masked
fault highlighted in light yellow.
Note the following:
12-2
•
For greatest printer productivity, clear any masked faults at your
earliest opportunity.
•
When the printer stops because of a fault, it is a good idea to
display the Fault List screen after clearing the fault to see if
there are any outstanding masked faults. Clear these masked
faults before continuing with the print job. Doing so will
enhance printer productivity.
•
When there is a fault that cannot be masked, that is, that
causes the printer to stop, the Fault icon (a dark yellow triangle
with an exclamation point inside) appears on the printer control
console and the Attention light flashes. The Fault screen
appears on the printer control console, highlighting (in dark
yellow) the area(s) of the printer containing the fault, and
instructions are given for clearing the fault.
•
If a fault exists in the system at the time that a masked fault
occurs, only the Fault icon appears on the printer control
console. Any masked fault condition messages still appear in
the message area of the printer control console.

Checking job integrity following a paper jam
When printing resumes following a paper jam, there is a slight
possibility that duplicate sheets may be printed or sheets may be
missing from a report. For that reason, you should check job integrity
once the report has been printed.
To check job integrity:
Step 1.
The printer offsets the first sheet printed following a paper jam.
Locate that sheet.
Step 2.
Check the sheets immediately before and after the offset sheet to
see if there are any missing or duplicate sheets in the report.
Note: A message may appear on the PC UI and the printer control
console telling you that there is a suspected page delivery error and
advising you to check the output.

Frequent misfeeds (processor feeder trays)
If the printer misfeeds frequently, the problem may be caused by a
glazed feed belt, especially if you notice that one tray feeds the same
paper better than another one does. (Glazing is caused by a buildup
of the chemicals found on most papers.)
If you suspect this is the problem, cleaning the feed belt may
eliminate the need to place a service call. Refer to the following
procedure.
Cleaning the feed belt
Step 1.
To clean the feed belt:
Clear any misfeeds that have occurred, but do not relatch the paper
feeder assembly. The paper feeder assembly must be unlatched to
clean the belt; if necessary, unlatch it by pressing down on the bright
green lever on the right side of the paper tray (see figure 12-31).
Figure 12-31.Unlatching the paper feeder assembly
Step 2.
12-22
Lightly moisten a lint-free towel with Xerox recommended film
remover and wipe the outside surface of the feed belt thoroughly in
the same direction as the ribs on the belt (see figure 12-32). Wiping
from side to side might pull the belt off its track. Allow a few seconds
for the film remover to evaporate.
XEROX DOCUPRINT 180 LPS OPERATOR GUIDE
PROBLEM SOLVING TASKS
Figure 12-32.Cleaning the feed belt
Step 3.
Relatch the paper feeder assembly by pressing down on the bright
green dot (see figure 12-33). Slide the paper tray completely back
into the printer.
Figure 12-33.Relatching the paper feeder assembly
Step 4.
Operate the system as usual. If you are still experiencing misfeeds,
place a service call.
Note: This procedure should be used only to correct a
problem, not as a routine maintenance procedure. Because the
belts are made of rubber, frequent cleaning with film remover will
dry them out and cause them to fail prematurely. Film remover
may be obtained from your Xerox service representative.

correct size for the job, either load the correct size paper or select
another feeder tray containing the correct size paper. If the paper
size is correct, press the Continue button to resume printing. The
message may have been caused by a damaged sheet.

•
Enter the RESET command.
Select the Reset task from the Job Control menu of the PC UI.
(Refer to the “Reset” section of chapter 5, “Job control tasks.”)
Step 3.
Enter the PSC (printer subsystem controller) command. This should
put the printer back in communication with the system controller.
Note: Ask your Xerox service representative to change this
command to a Logon Level 2 if not already done. Otherwise,
you will not be able to access it.
Step 4.
Retry the command to which the printer would not respond earlier. If
it still does not respond, tell your supervisor or a systems analyst.
Blank display (system controller terminal)
To prolong the life of the system controller display, the light is turned
off and the display becomes blank when it has not been used for 15
minutes. As soon as any key is pressed, the image returns exactly
as it was prior to turning itself off. There is no loss of information.
If there is no display when you press a key, check that the ON/OFF
switch on the right side of the display (just below the screen) is in the
ON position. Also check the brightness control (intensity adjustment
lever); slide it to the right to make the screen brighter. If the display
is turned on, the lever is all the way to the right, and the display
screen is still blank, place a service call
Rasterization messages
When a line of print is too complex for the system to process
normally, the output processor directs the image generator to
produce a bitmap image instead of aborting the page. This process
can take anywhere from 3 to 20 minutes. The following messages
appear in the Messages window of the PC UI or on the system
controller display:
OS1620 Local density problem has caused a printer cycle down
OS1625 Local density problem rasterization in progress.
Note: Do not press any keys until the process is complete. Any
commands normally allowed during print mode (for example, FEED,
JOBS, PSTATUS, SELECT, and so on) entered while rasterization is
in progress are delayed until the rasterization process is finished.
When the process is complete, the following message appears:
OS1627 Local density problem rasterization is complete
The printer now cycles up and prints the problem page.

Power failure
If there is a power failure and your LPS is online to a host computer,
the PC UI or system controller display (non-U.S. markets, only)
should prompt you to enter “C”. (It is possible that the message will
not appear. Enter “C” anyway at the system controller keyboard or
in the Messages window of the PC UI.) If there is no response from
the system after you enter “C”, press the System Power Off and
System Power On buttons on the operator control panel to reboot the
system.
In the event of a power failure, you must initiate recovery of the data
files to recover the data content. The system asks if you want it to
attempt recovery. If you do, key in <Y> (yes), or select the Yes
button.
It is possible that not all data can be recovered; the amount of
recovery that can be accomplished depends on when the last system
checkpoint was taken because of the method used by the system to
restore its dynamic (active) memory.
If working online to a host computer, check the output in the stacker
bins to find the last completed page. Request that the host operator
retransmit the job beginning at that point. The operator may have to
back up the spooler a number of pages.
Status file nearly full message
As jobs are printed, report information is automatically accumulated
and saved in the status file on a report basis each time a report is
both input and printed.
When the following message appears:
STATUS FILE NEARLY FULL
The accounting/status file has only enough space for 25 more
reports. When that number is exceeded, the system continues to
add new reports by deleting those at the beginning of the status file,
thereby losing important information.
When this message appears, notify your supervisor immediately.
Appropriate action can then be taken to save the report information
and reinitialize the status file.

AMeter reading and reporting
As jobs are printed by the LPS, usage information is accumulated
and saved. Instead of using physical meters, software in the printer
maintains the page count in its memory. Each month, that
information needs to be reviewed and transmitted to Xerox for billing
purposes. This appendix describes the procedures necessary to
extract the information and report it to Xerox.
Meter reading and billing report
There are two meters maintained by the laser printing system for
customer billing as follows:
•
Meter A counts all good impressions delivered to their intended
output tray. This meter cannot be reset.
•
Meter J counts only sheets printed in the printer diagnostic
mode and delivered to their intended output tray. Like meter A,
it cannot be reset.
Sometime during the last five working days of the month, when the
system is idle, you must extract the billing information and report it to
Xerox. To obtain a billing report, enter the REPORT BILLING
command at the system controller keyboard or use the Billing window
of the PC UI.

METER READING AND REPORTING
Understanding the system
The following points are very important to understand before
beginning to use the touchtone system:
•
Always wait for the system voice to finish a prompt before
entering data.
•
Always complete each entry with the # (pound sign). This tells
the system you have finished entering the data item it
requested. When you press the pound sign, the system
repeats the information you just entered and prompts you for
the next piece of information for the report.
•
Any time you want the system to repeat the voice prompt or
message it just completed, enter **3#.
•
When you want the system to cancel an entry it just read back
to you, enter **4#. After acknowledging the cancellation, the
system asks you to reenter the needed information.
•
Enter **94# to cancel all data entered for a machine. It can be
used any time before you enter the pound sign that completes
the data entry for that machine. (Refer to step 5 in the following
section.)
•
Each letter in the serial number must be translated into
numbers because letters are not individual keys on the
touchtone keypad.
—
To tell the system you are about to enter a letter, press the
asterisk (*).
—
Next, press the number key on the touchtone pad that has
the letter on it—press 7 for S, for example.
—
Finally, press 1, 2, or 3 for the letter's position on the key.
S is in the third position on the 7 key, for example, so you
press 3. (The entire “code” for S is *73.)
Example: To enter the serial number 6D5789123, press the
following keys: 6 *31 5 7 8 9 1 2 3 #
Note: It is possible for a serial number to contain letters in any
or all of the first three positions. If there are no letters, simply
enter the nine numbers and the #. For assistance in converting
your serial numbers, refer to table A-1.

METER READING AND REPORTING
Entering meter read information
To enter meter read information:
Step 1.
Call the Xerox Electronic Meter Data Collection System’s toll- free
number. It operates 24 hours a day, every day, including weekends
and holidays. Meter readings should be reported between the 20th
and the last working day of each month.
423-6168 (in Rochester, NY)
1-800-638-7979 (all other U.S. locations)
When the system answers your call, you hear:
“Thank you for calling the Xerox Electronic Meter Collection System.
For assistance, please call 800-433-7769.”
When it is necessary to provide special information of interest to our
customers, a special announcement message follows this greeting.
Following these initial messages, the system is ready to receive your
meter readings.
Step 2.
The system prompts you to begin by asking for your machine serial
number.
“Please enter the machine serial number.”
Enter your machine serial number, followed by a pound sign (#), on
the telephone keypad.
Once you enter your machine serial number, the system repeats it
back to you. (To eliminate the possibility of a coding error for any
letters in the serial number, the system uncodes your entry and says
it with the letters. If the system says the wrong letter, cancel this entry
by entering **4#, recode the letter, and reenter your serial number.)
Step 3.
When the serial number has been entered and accepted, the system
asks for the date of the reading.
“Please enter the date of the reading or enter the pound sign for
today's date.”
For example, May 3, 1998 would be entered as 05 03 98 #.
If a date appears to be incorrect, you receive a special message and
are asked to reenter the date.
If the system tells you your date is not within the acceptance range,
it also gives you the correct range. If you do not enter a date within
that range, the system refers you to the touchtone information
number and terminates the call.
When a correct date is entered, the system reads back the date, for
example:
“Date is five three ninety-eight.”
Step 4.
When the system finishes reading back the date, it then asks for the
meter reading.
“Please enter meter A.”
Enter the A meter reading, ending with the pound sign. Do not enter
zeros in front of the numbers of the meter read.
A-8
XEROX DOCUPRINT 180 LPS OPERATOR GUIDE
METER READING AND REPORTING
Note: From the serial number, the system knows how many
meters there are to report and asks for them by name.
If you want to review the data, enter **1# to start the review. Refer to
the following section “How to review and change data” for
instructions.
Step 5.
When the A meter has been entered, the system reads it back to you
and says:
“All meter reads for this machine are complete. Enter pound sign to
acknowledge.”
Enter the pound sign (#) if the meter read was correctly entered. If
there was a mistake, enter **4# to cancel the read and reenter the
correct meter read. Once again the system repeats the meter read to
you and asks you to enter the pound sign to confirm the entry. If it is
correct, enter #; if it is not, repeat the cancellation/reentry process.
Step 6.
Once you have successfully completed step 5, the system says:
“All readings accepted.”
The system's next message is to ask you for a machine serial
number. At this point you have the following choices:
•
If you have more machines to report, repeat the previous steps
until all machines have been reported.
•
If you have no more machines to report and you are sure of the
accuracy of the information, enter **91# to end the reporting
session. The system responds by indicating how many
machines were processed and accepted during this session.
“Readings for ___ machines accepted. Thank you for using the
Xerox Electronic Meter Reading System.”
Note: If you would like to practice with an imaginary serial number
before entering your actual serial number and meter read, you can
use serial number X12377889 (which converts to *9212377889).
This serial number is only a demonstration serial number; it cannot
generate a bill. You may practice all procedures described in the
“Entering meter read information” section using this serial number.

METER READING AND REPORTING
Reviewing and changing data
To review and change data:
Step 1.
To begin the review, enter **1#. The system reads the first serial
number.
Step 2.
To accept the serial number and continue, enter #. The system then
reads back the A meter read.
Step 3.
Continue the review by accepting with the # sign each time the entry
is read back correctly.
If an entry read back is incorrect, enter **4# to cancel the entry, and
reenter the correct information after the voice prompts you to do so.
Be sure to wait until the voice is finished before making entries.
Step 4.
A-10
To end the review at any time, enter **2#. When the review is ended,
the system asks you to enter the # sign to acknowledge the entries
as complete. You may then choose to enter more machine
information or terminate the session. (Refer to step 6 in the previous
section.)

Effective management of your laser printing system requires that you
maintain proper inventory levels of paper and other supplies at all
times. No one wants to lose production time because supplies are
not available when they are needed.
Planning ahead also makes sense from a financial standpoint. It
allows you to take advantage of quantity discounts, which can mean
very great savings to your company. Your sales representative or
supply specialist can help you plan most effectively and
economically. The purpose of this chapter is to give you a summary
of the most-used paper and the necessary supplies, their order
numbers, and how to order them from Xerox.

a command.
In data processing systems, the amount of data that can be
processed, transmitted, printed, and so on, per a specified unit of
time.
toggle
To switch (alternate) from one tray to another. The system switches
from an active feeder or stacker tray to an inactive one to allow
continuous printing when the proper commands are invoked.
trailer
In data communications, the last portion of a message that signals
the end.
transaction processing
Method of data processing in which files are updated and results are
generated immediately after data entry.
translation
1. In data communications, the conversion of one code to another on
a character-by-character basis. 2. In programming, the function of a
language processor which converts a source program from one
programming language to another.

typeface
1. All type of a single design. 2. Set of characters with design features
that make them similar to one another.
type size
Height of a typeface, measured from the bottom of its descenders to
the top of its ascenders, expressed in points.
type style
Italic, condensed, bold, and other variations of typeface that form a
type family.
UCS
Universal Character Set. Printer feature that permits the use of a
variety of character
upload
To copy files from a remote peripheral device to a host. LPS files are
not copied to the host because one of the LPS functions is to store
files for the host.
utility program
General-purpose program that performs activities, such as initializing
a disk or sorting, which are not specific to any application.
validation
Process of testing a system’s ability to meet performance objectives
by measuring and monitoring its performance in a live environment.
variable
Information of a changeable nature which is merged with a standard
or a repetitive document to create specialized or personalized
versions of that document.
variable data
Variable data is not a part of a form design. It varies from page to
page.
variable text
Text of changing nature, such as various names and addresses
combined with a form letter to make a complete document.
virtual page
Page area selected by a forms designer for printing.
warning message
weight
System-issued message indicating that an error has been
encountered even though the program has not failed.
Characteristic of type determined by how light or dark it appears.
wildcard
Part of a command (* symbol, / symbol, ? symbol) that represents a
category for which the possible options are requested.
wildcarding
In a command, calling out a general category rather than a specific
item within that category. The purpose of wildcarding is to generate
the options within the given category.
