Press the Scanner button, on the left hand side of the LCD screen there should be a button that says "file type" press that and change the current setting to multi-page PDF. Now press ok and you should be back to the main scanner screen. on the right hand side of the control panel above the numbers press the program key, now on the LCD screen press program as default a window will pop up asking if thats really what you want to do, just press yes and you should be good to go.

You need to call your merchant services provider's tech support dept and have the terminal redownloaded, or a new file built.

Copy a driver AND its exact settings from one computer to another

I found a way to copy the driver settings but it did not fix the problem. I copied the driver settings using the following method;

Press the start menu button and click on run, Then type in the following (Caps Locks actually matter in these commands... surprisingly.):

RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry /Ss /n "printer" /a "file.dat"

where "printer" is the name of the printer in the control panel and "file.dat" is the name of the file you want to store the settings in. for example: 

RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry /Ss /n "HP LaserJet 5000n" /a "C:\printer_settings\HP_LaserJet.dat"

Then copy the file from the location you stored it in (in this example it would be the HP_LaserJet.dat in the folder "C:\printer_settings\") to the other computer you want to use it on.

Place the .dat file in a folder on the C: drive of the new computer (for example "C:\printer_settings\".

You need to install the same driver for the printer that is installed on the old PC onto the new PC. Also, remember to give the printer the same name.

Then go to the start menu and then open run again. Then enter the following command: 
RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUI /Sr /n "printer" /a "file.dat"

Once again "printer" is the printer name in the control panel that you want to copy the settings from and "file.dat" is the file that we are going to copy the settings from this time. So, if you copied the file "HP_LaserJet.dat" from the original computer in our example to the directory "C:\printer_settings\" on the new computer, then the command would look like this:

RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUI /Sr /n "HP LaserJet 5000n" /a "C:\printer_settings\HP_LaserJet.dat"

It should now copy the settings from the file to the printer driver.

The actual cause of the problem was the printer port. I uninstalled the driver and then removed the port that it was connecting to. Then I recreated the port and installed the printer with the previous driver that was still on the machine.

File error

Press Enter and 6 at the same time. It should reboot the system immediately and will stop the annoying beeping!

I want to add an store email addresses on my xerox phaser 6115mfp

You need to use control center , which can be found at .
But here are the steps.
The MFP ControlCentre (MCC) provides an easy-to-use Graphical User Interface (GUI) that simplifies configuring the Phaser 6115MFP and managing fax directory lists from a computer over USB. The MCC stores configuration and setting information in a .dat file that is uploaded from the computer to the Phaser 6115MFP.

NOTE: It is also possible to save the .dat file to a directory on the computer.
To program dialing and enter recipient e-mail addresses using MCC:
  1. Click on the [Start] button, then point to [Programs], select [Xerox Office Printing], then [Phaser 6115MFP], and then click on [Xerox Phaser 6115MFP MCC]. The MCC window will be displayed.
  2. Click on the [Connect to Machine] button. 'Connection Status: Online' will be displayed in the MCC window.
  3. Click on the [Download] button. The current .dat file will be downloaded to the MCC.
  4. Click on the [Menu] button.
  5. Click on the [+] on the left side of the window to configure Speed Dial, One-Touch Dialing, Group Dial, and e-mail addresses.
  6. Enter the required settings, and then click on the [OK] button.
  7. When finished, click on the [Upload] button, and then click on [Yes] to save these settings to the Phaser 6115MFP.
  8. Click on the [Save] button to save the new .dat file to the computer.
  9. When finished, click on the [Disconnect] button.

Omni 3200 SE file error!

Not much of a solution! It is a problem on their end, and they have to download data to fix it. Thank you for asking.

Error message

This means that something has gone wrong in the application software. The best thing to do is to get a reload of the application.
