Stacker and Pendulum Area

  1. Open the stacker gate (1).
  2. Ensure that the forms are folding correctly; that is, the forms stack lies flat (without bowing between forms).
  3. Ensure that the Forms Set indicator on the Printer Control Panel is set to match the direction of the first fold perforation that is below the red mark on the forms guide.
  4. Separate the forms at the perforation near the top of the stacker. Save as much of the output as possible. Work with the host system console operator to recover any lost pages.
  5. Unload forms from the stacker.

    When you remove the forms from the stacker, leave 4 to 5 pages attached to the end of the job running in the stacker. This ensures that the forms folding is correct when printing resumes. See Unloading the Stacker.
  6. Ensure that the correct forms length and width are selected at the Stacker Control Panel.
  7. If you receive a message when no forms appear jammed, clean the six stacker jam sensors and two mirrors with a soft dry cloth. See step 31 under "Cleaning the Printer."
