Forms jams

All the messages that appear and some function switches you need to use are duplicated on the printer operator panel and on the touchscreen windows. Because clearing a jam involves the printer mechanisms, we recommend that you use the operator panel of the affected printer for messages and function keys wherever possible, rather than using the touchscreen.

The term affected printer means the printer on which the jam has occurred.

If the printer power is turned off while the jam message is displayed, the message reappears when power is restored. This ensures that the jam is cleared and that no damage is done to the printer if jammed forms are present during the power-on procedure.
