Article # 3015248 - Page views: 464

If a terminal will not lock or unlock a copier's interface panel, consider the following:

  • The copier interface cable may be broken, disconnected or incorrect.
    • Trace the interface cable from the terminal to the copier, confirming that it is properly attached.
    • Look for signs of damage or wear to the copier interface cable.
    • If a MCIF box is connected between the terminal and copier, confirm that it is powered on and all cables are properly fastened.
  • The copier's foreign interface may be improperly configured or damaged.
    • Have your copier technician confirm that the copier's settings are correct and that the foreign interface is functional.
    • * Note that a Copitrak terminal does not have the ability to control what functions are locked or unlocked on a copier. It is up to the copier to tell its interface the terminal interacts with what functions should lock or unlock when Copitrak is enabled.
  • The Copitrak terminal may be improperly configured.
    • Request a technician review the server side configuration of the terminal.
  • The Copitrak terminal may be damaged.
    • With the assistance of a technician, temporarily replace the terminal with one that is confirmed functional.
