2515/2520: Press & hold the ‘Bond’ and ‘Film’ buttons while powering up.

Once diagnostics is entered, the display will light up & then after 3 seconds, the lamps will turn off & the current software revision level will be displayed as the letter L and a number… then a ‘0’ will be displayed.

Use the Copy Contrast UP & DOWN buttons to select the test you want to run.

Exiting Diagnostics: Press the ‘Stop’ button.

Important Precautions:
These engineering copiers are actually relatively simple machines… but there are a few important things to know:

  • Always remove the Fuser Lamp before removing the Fuser.
  • If you need to run the Main Motor from diagnostics… always turn on the cooling fans & fuser for 2 minutes first. This is because room temperature fuser oil can seize up the fuser and cause gears to break.
  • When running tests on the exposure lamp or high voltage, turn on the Main Motor first to avoid damaging the drum.
  • When installing a new Fuser Roll, oil the roller thoroughly.
