Use this function to maintain privacy when printing confidential documents on the machine over a shared network. Usually, it is possible to print data using the control panel once it is stored in this machine. When using Locked Print, it is not possible to print unless a password is entered on the machine's control panel. Your confidential documents will be safe from being viewed by other people.
A Locked Print file cannot be stored if:
the total number of Sample Print, Locked Print, Hold Print, and Stored Print files in the machine is over 100. (The maximum number varies depending on the volume of data in files.)
the file contains over 1,000 pages.
the machine's sent or stored files total over 9,000 black-and-white pages. (The total varies depending on the size of the files.)
the machine's sent or stored files total over 2,000 color pages. (The total varies depending on the size of the files.)
If a Locked Print file has not been stored properly, check the error log on the control panel.
Even after you turn off the machine, stored documents remain. However, the [Auto Delete Temporary Print Jobs] or [Auto Delete Stored Print Jobs] settings are applied first.
If the application has a collate option, make sure it is not selected before sending a print job. Locked Print jobs are automatically collated by the printer driver as default. If a collate option is selected in the application print dialog box, more sets than intended may be printed.
After the Locked Print file is printed, the job is automatically deleted.
For details about the error log on the control panel, see "Checking the Error Log".
