i know the Wi-Fi symbol. There is an i in a circle, and bulbs in a rectangle and two paper symbols


Customer Replay

Ok there doesn’t seem to be anything in the manual

Noted, thank you!
Please note that two paper symbols are button to make a copy in color or in black and white. symbol you need to press in order to print a summary of printer settings and status.

Customer Replay

thank you for that one. The i in a circle and the light bulbs in a rectangle?

The last one, the rectangle is number counter.

Customer Replay

how does the rectangle work
and the i in a circle must be some sort of information?

It is showing copy count and error codes with a white light.

Customer Replay

how do you find out what the error is or what can it be

The button will print an information page, so you can check how your printer is currently working.
There are 8 error codes for your printer, that can be indicated.

Customer Replay

ok that should be helpful I will try and understand them and try them out.
thank you
