Testing the Printer

Testing the Printer
Now that your printer is fully assembled, you can use the built-in
self test function to see that the printer is working correctly even
though it is not connected to a computer. Be sure to perform this
test to check that your printer is operating properly.
Before running the self test, you need to connect your printer to an
electrical outlet and load a sheet of paper.
Plugging in the printer
Follow these steps to plug in the printer:
1. Be sure the printer is turned off.
Plug the power cable into a properly grounded electrical outlet.
After turning the printer off, always wait at
least five seconds before turning it back on. Turning 
power on and off rapidly can damage the printer.
