operating status, identify the trouble position and causes in an ear-
lier stage, and make various setups and adjustments speedily for
improving the serviceability of the machine.
1) Various adjustments
2) Setup of specifications and functions
3) Canceling troubles
4) Operation check
5) Various counters check, setup, and clear
6) Machine operating status (operation history) data check, clear
7) Transfer of various data (adjustments, setup, operations,
counters)
The operating procedures and the displays differ depending on the
form of the operation panel of the machine.
