Printer Power Options

The ProJet® MJP 2500W and ProJet® MJP 2500 IC printer goes into lower power modes when it has been idle for a period of time. After 120 minutes, the printer will enter Standby mode. After 9 hours, the printer will enter Conserve mode. The UI status will display as in Standby during this time. Sending a print job or interacting with the front panel will start warming up the printer. The printer can be placed in conserve mode by selecting "Standby" in the Tools Printer Shutdown tabs.

  1. A message will then come up that states it is now safe to turn the power switch off. Turn off the printer switch on the back of the printer.

NOTE: Unless the printer will be idle for an excessively long time (>60 days) it is not necessary to shut it down. Shutting down the printer will cause longer wait times for warming, because it is warming from a cold state.

NOTE: Whenever the printer is powered down, wait 60 seconds before toggling the power switch back on.
