Shutting down the system

Do this procedure when:

You should always do this procedure before you switch off power to the Printer 2 control unit, regardless of whether a recovery action procedure instructed you to switch power off to the system or you are doing it on your own.

The shutdown procedure safely prepares the system so that the Printer 2 control unit may be powered off.

In Duplex mode, this procedure shuts down the complete system (both printers). In dual simplex mode, this procedure shuts down only the target printer. The other printer remains active and usable. If you are shutting down the last active Dual Simplex printer, the complete system is shutdown.

Note that once a Dual Simplex printer has been shutdown using this procedure, the only way to get it back to active use is to first shut down the other Dual Simplex printer also.


Do this procedure to shut down the system.

  1. On the Main touch panel, select Shutdown.
  2. On the Shutdown panel, select Shutdown and OK. If you decide not to shut down or restart the system, select Cancel on this panel. If the printers are in Duplex mode, or if the printers are in Dual Simplex mode and the final simplex printer is being shut down, the following messages appear on the touch panel:
  3. If necessary, switch power off to the system or to the individual printer.

As required, correct the problem that caused you to initiate the procedure.
