Print Samples panel

Use the Print Samples panel to print a variety of print samples to use for checking overall print quality. Besides Diagnostic print samples, you can print Configuration prints and Internal test masters from this panel.

Select Maintenance -> Print Samples to display this panel.

Select the type of print sample from the Source list, and select the print sample from the Print Samples list. Then select Print to print the selected print sample. You can print Diagnostic print samples, Internal print samples (special test masters for analysis), and various Configuration prints (Printer Configuration, Snapshot Details List, Network Configuration, Error Logs, and IPDS Font List).

For Diagnostic print samples, you can select the number of copies to print and the resolution. Diagnostic prints are special pages that you can print only when the printer is Not Ready (stopped).

For Internal and Configuration prints, you can select the number of copies to print. These print samples are sent to a print job and you can request to print them at any time, but they will only print when the printer is not processing another job.

Additional print sample selections are available on this panel for service personnel.
