ENTERING DIAGNOSTICS: (This can be an adventure in itself) To enter diagnostics in the ‘Un-initialized state’ (necessary if a status code is currently displayed): Hold ‘Job Interrupt’ button & ‘5’ while turning on the power. Then enter a 4 digit “Access Code” (default code = 8765). You will not see the code displayed as you enter it. If the default code does not work, and you can’t find the new code written in the machine’s log book (some techs write it on the inside cover of one of the Owner’s Manuals), you’ll have to use the back door. Find out the current ‘Total copy count’ (Press the ‘Review’ Button on the console, then press ‘Billing Meters’ on the touchscreen to show the copy counts). Use the last 4 digits of the total copy count backwards as the “Access Code”. If the machine is currently in a status code, you will need to press ‘Stop’ twice to clear the status code screen & bring up the diagnostic screen. NOTE: In these machines, when in diagnostic mode, Always record very carefully every change you make… very easy to screw things up in there. (201)387-7776 U.S.A.
