Monitoring and Configuring the Printer
Monitoring Normal Printer Operation
Messages appear on the control panel display and lights come on or flash to 
indicate various phases of printer operation. The following table explains the 
status messages and lights:
Pausing and Resetting the Printer
If you need to stop the printer during a print job, press the 
Pause
 button. 
Press the 
Pause 
button again to resume printing.
If you decide to cancel a job after the printer has started processing it, you 
can reset the printer. Press the
 Pause
 button and hold it down for 3 seconds. 
This clears all data in the printer’s memory.
Checking Printer Status
You can use the control panel to print a status check or nozzle check. These 
prints allow you to test the printer without sending a print job (and without 
connecting the printer to the RIP). You can also check the amount of ink 
remaining, total number of prints, and the status of your cutter blade and 
other printer parts.
