There definitely must be a setting to reset the fuser counter. I cant tell you where to look as I am not familiar enough with that model. Check in the counter menus or the maintenance menus, or a reset menu.

At times while printing reports, the printer will continue printing off the page


LM=1 is left margin, RM=220 is right margin, TM=2 is top margin, BM=64 is bottom margin, FL=66 is form length (66 lines is 11 inches when LPI=6 lines per inch) PRTFEA=H means you have the print feature dial set to Host. Change the dial and you get different settings for forms, checks, invoices, reports. A-F.
Perf Skip just skips over the perforation where the pages are perferated. Enhanced means its double strike vs Draft mode.
These settings tell me you are printing compressed print (CPI=16) on wide paper (green bar) cuz RM=220 right margin is 220. For 8.5x11 paper 132 is the correct margin with at 16cpi. or 80 for 10cpi. Clearly you have the wrong paper in here if you print off the page. You must have 8.5 x 11 or 11 x 8.5.
Host allows the computer to change the settings on the fly. That may be why it goes off the page later. (Or it could be a carriage jam that makes it think its at space 1 when it isn't.)
I don't know what you are trying to print so I can't help you. I can tell you that having right margin on 220 is why its printing off the page.
You can change the dial to preset draft 16 and print a menu for those setting or you can change the RM to 132 or 80 by using the command, menu, change and accept keys.
Its been 10 years or so for me but take the printer off line by pushing the on-line button, press command, press menu and it will print all the settings like you have done. It will then print whatever the first item you can change is, press accept and keep accepting until you get to RM=220 then press change. It should print 80 or some number, press change until you get to 132 then press accept. Press accept until you get to the end. Press Normal and on line.
If you change the print size from 16 to 12, or 10 you will need to change the RM to the correct width.
Can't find a manual online for you. I probably thru away 200 of them in 2007 when PCS closed. It would show you what the choices are for each setting. And what the preset and A-F settings are without printing a menu on each one.

Dell 1320c is giving faded printing in both color and black. I've replaced two toner cartridges, tried to 'bleed' the cartirdge by printing 20 copies, toner save is turned off and there is no...


After you click print, and just before you print, go to your 'printing preferences' or 'print settings' in the popup window. From there, cycle through the tabs, and ensure that 'print quality' is NOT at draft and IS on normal or high quality. Alternatively, you change the 'print resolution' in this window, if the option is available. Resolution is usually given in 'dpi' so choose the highest 'dpi' value. This should hopefully give you darker prints

How do I change the default file format from Jpeg to PDF on a xerox M24??


The following information provides an Overview of the Printer's available Scan Settings. 1. To enter the Scan mode, from the Printer's Main (Copy) Screen press the Menu button.
2. On the two-button selection screen, press the right-hand Scan/E-mail button. Note: If you press the lefthand "Copy" button by mistake you will be returned to the Main (Copy) Screen. You will then have to press the Menu button again to return to the two-button selection screen.
3. The Scan screen consists of three Tabs, with each Tab displaying a number of feature settings. From left to right, the three Tabs are labeled: Basic Scanning, Scan Options, and Image Quality/File Format.
4. When the Basic Scanning Tab is selected, three columns of settings are displayed. The first (left-hand) column of settings contains four "Output Color" selections, including: Auto, Full Color, Grayscale (256G), and Black. The second (center) column of settings displays four scan resolutions. The available selections include: 200 dpi, 300 dpi, 400 dpi, and 600 dpi. The third (right-hand) column of settings displays "2 Sided Original" selections including: 1 Sided, 2 Sided (H to H), 2 Sided (H to T), and More.... If you press More..., a screen displays with two setting selection buttons on the left, enabling you to select either 1 Sided or 2 Sided. If you choose 1 Sided, you can select an original orientation of Head to Top, or Head to Left. If you choose 2 Sided, two additional orientation buttons (Head to Head, and Head to Toe) become available for your selection. Note: To support "2 Sided" (Duplex) Scanning you will need to use the Printer's Duplex Automatic Document Feeder. When changing or viewing More... settings, press the Save button to save setting changes, or the Cancel button to exit the current screen without saving changes.
5. After an Output Color is selected from the first column of the Basic Scanning Tab, and the Image Quality/File Format Tab is pressed, a screen is displayed allowing you to choose and configure the settings for Original Type (Text & Photo, Text, Photo), Image Compression (High, Normal, Low), Contrast, File Format, and Auto Exposure.
- Press the Original Type button to select the most effective scanning for your original image type. Options are Text & Photo, Text, and Photo. - Press the File Format button to select your scanned file format. Options are TIFF/JPEG, JPEG, DocuWorks, and PDF. - Press the Lighter/Darker/Contrast button to adjust scanned image density (lightness and darkness) and contrast. Use the supplied arrows to make the desired setting adjustments. - Press the Image Compression button to set the degree of data compression, used especially with JPEG scans. Options are High, Normal (default), and Low. - Press the Auto Exposure button to enable or disable this scanning feature with the ON or OFF buttons. When changing or viewing settings, press the Save button to save setting changes, or the Cancel button to exit the current screen without saving changes.

How to set it 20 characters per inch


Where do you want to set the font?

Do you want the font as the default font on the printer or do you want the application to call the font?

Application wise, to get a 20 cpi character font, you need to place the font change into the document.

Remember, even if you set the default font as a 20 cpi, if the application calls for a 10 cpi font like Courier, the printer will change the default font to the 10 cpi font for the life of the current print job unless there are additional font calls within the print job.

The software (Application always overcomes default settings)
