Optimizing Your Printing Environment
This chapter describes how to set the printer features to conserve power and reduce
toner consumption. It also shows how to optimize the printer's memory capabilities
and set personality switching.
Economizing on Use of Toner
Economy mode (similar to the draft mode feature used by many dot matrix printers)
uses less toner to print documents. The documents will print lighter, but they will be
ideal for checking and editing.
Follow this procedure to turn the economy mode on and off.
Press Go to take the printer off-line. The On Line indicator should go off. PAUSED
will appear in the display.
Press Menu until you see CONFIG MENU in the top line.
To open the configuration menu and display the first item (JAM RECOVERY=OFF)
in the bottom line, press Item.
Press Item until you see ECONOMY MODE=OFF.
Press Value to change the display to ECONOMY MODE=ON.
Press Enter to save your selection.
Press Go to put the printer back on-line.
The printer is now ready to print documents in the economy mode.
To turn the economy mode off and return to normal printing, repeat this procedure but
select OFF at step 5.
