Powering On and Off Pre/Post Devices

The following procedures may be necessary for the protection of the operator and the equipment.

The printers recognize electronically attached devices only if those devices are powered-on.


To avoid damage to the printer stacker table, switch power on to any postprocessing device before you switch power on to the printer to which it is attached. For the same reason, switch power off to the postprocessing device last.

If a preprocessing or postprocessing device stops before the printer becomes Ready, the printer cannot detect that the device is stopped. A forms jam results when printing begins.
