Question about Pitney Bowes C180 Copier

My copier powers on without errors but doesn't copy

My copier powers on without any errors but does nothing after that. The screen displays "1" copy and none of the buttons do anything except for the "energy saver" button which works as it always has. Any ideas before I call Pitney Bowes? Is there any way to reset all the settings or something? Thanks!

Key Operator Mode
To the Key Operator
The key operator is trained to handle all special key operator functions that are not
accessible to the general user, such as monitoring overall copier activity, machine
performance, and service information; modifying machine settings; and controlling user
activity, for billing purposes.
A unique 4-digit key operator password is normally set by service at installation. If the
unique code is not set by service, the copier will not display Key Operator Password
Entry Screen when the Key Operator mode is being accessed, and a key operator
password will not be required. A service-set 8-digit ECM master key code must be
entered by the key operator to access the Electronic Copy Monitor functions, and a
service-set 4-digit Weekly timer master key code must be entered by the key operator to
access the Weekly timer functions.
To ensure the security of Key Operator mode, it is recommended that you establish a
unique key operator password, along with the key operator ECM master key code and
Weekly timer master key code, and keep them in a confidential file.

Hi, I've APC UPS ES 500 connected to my desktop computer. Have 1 year old battery but when checked without load displaying 12 V. Issues are: a. ups doesn't supply...

A battery showing 12V without a load attached means nothing. You probably have one or more weak cells and they simply cannot supply enough power. I would try a new battery before I try anything else.

Error 1203


error 1203 means either or both cartridges have short circuited and needs replacement..

You will need to perform the following steps to find out which cartridge is defective:

1. With the printer turned ON, open the front cover and remove both cartridges from the printer.
2. Power the printer OFF and unplug the power cable for 30 seconds. Plug the power cable back in and turn ON the printer.
3. If the error message is now cleared from the printer, please perform the "Self-Test" by following the steps below:
1. Make sure the printer is in “Copy Mode.”
2. Press the “Menu” button once.
3. The screen will display “Copy Menu: Copies”.
4. Press the left arrow button once. The screen will display “Copy Menu: Tools”.
5. Press the check button once. The screen with read “Tools: Maintenance”.
6. Press the check button once. The screen with read “Maintenance: Ink Levels”.
7. Press the right arrow button until the screen reads “Maintenance: Print Test Page”.
8. Press the check button once. This will start the Self-Test. Once the page has printed, the printer will stop. The test is not continuous.

If the printer has detected a "Cartridge Missing" error, then please follow the steps given below:

1. Turn the power OFF.
2. Open the front cover.
3. Turn the power back ON. The print cartridge carrier should move to the install position located in the middle of the printer. If it does not, close and reopen the cover:
4. Reseat both cartridges in the printer and check for the error.
5. If the error still displays, then remove the color print cartridge.
6. Close the cover.
7. If there is no error indicated by flashing lights, the color cartridge has short-circuited.
8. However, if you continue to get an error, repeat steps 1-3, and then go to step 9.
9. Remove the black print cartridge and reinsert the color cartridge.
10. If there is no error indicated by flashing lights, the black cartridge has short-circuited.
11. If you continue to receive an error in both cartridge scenarios, both print cartridges have short-circuited.
