Changing the Fine Filter

Attention!

You may leave printer power on while you perform this task, but the printer should not be printing.

To clear this action message, the printer power must be on while you replace the fine filter.

Do this task when you see the following message: CHANGE FINE FILTER 0791

Note:
You do not have to replace the fine filter the first time you see the CHANGE FINE FILTER message. To bypass the message, SELECT the Ready push-button on the main Display/Touch Screen.

The CHANGE FINE FILTER message reappears each time end-of-forms is reached, an error condition occurs, or every 4 000 feet of forms thereafter. When 100 000 additional feet of forms have been processed since the message originally appeared, you must change the fine filter before you can return the printer to Ready status.
