Verifying printer setup

Printing a menu settings page
Print a menu settings page to review the current menu settings and to verify if the printer options are installed correctly.
Note: 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. A user default setting remains in effect until you access the menu again, choose another value, and save it.
From the printer control panel, navigate to:
> Settings >
>Reports >
Printing a network setup page
If the printer is attached to a network, then print a network setup page to verify the network connection. This page
also provides important information that aids network printing configuration.
1
From the printer control panel, navigate to:
> Settings >
2
Check the first section of the network setup page, and then confirm that the status is Connected.
If the status is Not Connected, then the LAN drop may not be active, or the network cable may be malfunctioning.
Consult your system support person for a solution, and then print another network setup page.
