Phaser Initialization problem

Why Phaser initialization takes forever? by ari014
Posted: 23 Dec 03 (Edited 27 Oct 05)

Eternal initialization at power up 340/350/360:
1) The printer is nearly out if ink (less than one cube in one or more colors). Fill all color bins to add pressure in feeding cubes to melting. - Run myself to this again with another 360. For some reason the printer can not tell you what's up. When I added colors, the Initializing-Warming Up text changed at 99% to Melting Ink and finally it throw out the cleaning page with lot of yellow stripes. Then I run through Cleaning and got a perfect cleaning page with all jets OK.

2) You have to feed paper in manual feeder (several, one at a time). Your machine is configured to use (recycled) paper from manual feeder instead of (letterhead) from drawer during initialization cucle. When up and running, you can change this from menu.

- This is a user selectable feature, there is no indication it is set.
