HP Designjet Z3100 Photo Printer Series - Front panel explanation

Your printer's front panel is located on the front of the printer, in the center. It has the following important functions:
  • Assists you in troubleshooting issues
  • Is used to perform certain procedures, such as cutting and unloading paper
  • Displays helpful animations to guide you through procedures
  • Displays up-to-date information about the status of the printer such as, the ink cartridges, the printheads, the paper, and the print jobs
  • Displays warning and error messages, when appropriate, along with audio alerts to call attention to a warning or message
  • Can be used to change the values of printer settings and thus change the operation of the printer. However, settings in the front panel are overridden by settings in the printer drivers.
