The DTC1250e and DTC4250e use button messages
rather than a display message system.
All Printers have two (2) buttons.
The display message system appears as a
graphical message, for example:
- The ON/OFF
button is blue when the printer is ON.
When the printer enters the Sleep mode, the button LED is dimmed but still ON.
- The Pause button illuminates blue when the
printer is capable of accepting a print job and is not in an error state.
When an error occurs, the Pause button no longer illuminates blue
but blinks red.
Press the ON/OFF button when printer is in an error state to cause the action
to be canceled.
- This button LED will continue to stay on while
the printer prints as long as there is no error.
- This button LED will also be dimmed when the
printer goes into Sleep mode.
Press the Pause button when printer is in an error state to cause the printer
- Note: If no other error occurs, the Pause button illuminates as blue.
When downloading an upgrade file, both
buttons are blue and blink. If the unit is a DTC1250E, you are notified that
the upgrade is in process.
If a language (other than English) is
currently selected, you can press and hold the Pause button during the power-up sequence to change the language
back to English.
When no printer display is available, press
or hold the buttons to access some internal tests.
- Note: The button illuminates as blue and retries the failed action.
- To print a
card with the Printer Settings, press the Pause
button and hold for 4+ seconds when the printer is ready and idle.
- To print the
Alignment or the Self Test, press and hold the Pause button during the power-up sequence.
