Use this function to temporarily hold a file in the machine, and print it from the computer or the machine's control panel later.
A Hold 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 6,000 black-and-white pages. (The total varies depending on the size of the files.)
the machine's sent or stored files total over 3,000 color pages. (The total varies depending on the size of the files.)
If a Hold Print file has not been stored properly, check the error log on the control panel.
Even after you turn off the machine, stored documents in the machine 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. By default, Hold Print jobs are automatically collated by the printer driver. If a collate option is selected from the application's Print dialog box, more prints than intended may be produced.
