HP Designjet 4000 Printer Series - Navigating the Front Panel Menus

Introduction

There are four main menu options on the printers front panel:
  • Ink menu
  • Paper menu
  • Jobs menu
  • Setup menu
    Figure : Front panel
  1. Display area - where information, icons, and menus are displayed.
  2. Power key - turns the printer on and off. If the printer is in sleep mode, this key will wake it up.
  3. Power light - is off when the printer is off; amber when the printer is in sleep mode; green when the printer is on; green and flashing when the printer is in transition between off and on.
  4. Form Feed and Cut key - normally ejects the sheet (if a sheet is loaded) or advances and cuts the roll (if a roll is loaded). However, if the printer is waiting for more pages to be nested, this key cancels the waiting time and prints the available pages immediately.
  5. Reset key - restarts the printer (as if it were switched off and switched on again). You will need an implement with a narrow tip to operate the Reset key.
  6. Cancel key - cancels the current operation. It is often used to stop printing the current print job.
  7. Status light - is off when the printer is not ready to print: it may be off, or in sleep mode. It is green when the printer is ready and idle; green and flashing when the printer is busy; amber when a serious internal error has occurred; amber and flashing when awaiting human attention.
  8. Up key - moves to the previous item in a list, or increases a numerical value.
  9. Select key - selects the item that is currently highlighted.
  10. Back key - goes back to the previous menu. If you press it repeatedly, or hold it down, you will soon return to the main menu.
  11. Down key - moves to the next item in a list, or decreases a numerical value.
A few tricks:
  • When a selection is made, the printer does not automatically return to the upper or main menu immediately. It will however, automatically go to the main menu if not used for about one minute.
  • If no tool is available to press the Reset button, use the main power switch located on the back of the printer (same result).
note:
A very fine point, just over 0.5cm long, is required to activate the reset button.
Use the arrow keys on the printers front panel to scroll through the menus and submenus. When the appropriate menu/submenu option is highlighted, press the Select key on the front panel to access the option, change a setting or run an internal test.
