LaserJet MFPs and white paper Digital Senders Automatic Daylight Saving Time adjustment Security Level: Public Date Written/Updated: October 24, 2007 Document Summary This document describes the automatic Daylight Saving Time enhancement in LaserJet MFPs. The feature is included in the latest firmware for the following models: LJ4345mfp, CLJ4730mfp, LJ9040/9050mfp, CLJ9500mfp, M3027/3035 MFP, M4345 MFP, M5025/5035 MFP, CM4730 MFP, DS9200C, and DS9250C.
How it works: Users now have the ability to set the time zone for the MFP. When Automatic Daylight Saving Time Adjustment is enabled, the MFP will change the clock, based on the configured time zone. Time zone settings are current for the 2007 Daylight Saving Time start and end dates in the U.S.
There are normally four tabs across the top. If only the Information tab is visible (as above), you must Log In, using the device’s EWS password. Click on the Settings tab, then select Date & Time from the left side: Page 3 of 9 white paper...
Date & Time screen will appear, as shown below. The MFP’s date and time settings are displayed, and can be changed from this screen. The currently configured time zone is displayed, but cannot be changed from this screen. The firmware versions listed in the Release 1 column in the table will display GMT as the time zone for an un- configured device.
Click on the Advanced button at the bottom to access the Date & Time – Advanced screen: Page 5 of 9 white paper...
Select your time zone from the Time Zone drop-down menu. Check the Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes Note: Your settings will not be effective until you click at the lower right. After clicking OK, you will return to the Date &...
The correct Daylight Saving Time start and end dates will be displayed for your selected time zone. Caution: If you did not click after selecting your time zone, the Start and End Dates will reflect the previously selected time zone. Using WJA: The screenshot below is the Configuration screen for WJA 8.X.
Notes and Cautions: For standard time zones, select the time zone, click on Time Zone, then click Configure. The Start Date and End Date settings will automatically be set for your selected time zone after you click Configure. The only time you would change settings in the Daylight Savings Time section would be to set custom dates and times.
Differences between Release 1 and Release 2: There are two primary changes from Release 1 to Release 2: Release 1 forces the user to enter the time zone via the control panel when a device is upgraded. This requires user intervention, which is problematic for remotely-managed devices.
