Optimize Printing Supplies

Manage Power

To conserve electricity, the printer comes with the following features:

Sleep mode

Power usage is reduced while in Sleep mode. The printer goes into low-power mode after 5 minutes

of inactivity.
To change the period of inactivity before the printer goes to sleep:

From the printer control panel display, touch



Touch Sleep Mode, and then touch the desired option.

Schedule On and Off

Use this feature to automatically the printer on or off on selected days. For example, you can

schedule the printer to turn on at 8 a.m. and turn off at 8 p.m. from Monday to Friday. In this way, you

will save energy during the night and weekends.
To schedule the day and time for On and Off:

From the printer control panel display, touch



Touch Schedule Printer On/Off.


Touch the desired option, and follow the on-screen messages to set the day and time to turn the

printer off and on.

CAUTION: Always turn the printer off properly, using either Schedule Off or (the Power button).
If you improperly turn the printer off, the print carriage might not return to the correct position, causing

problems with the ink cartridges and print quality issues.
