Advice about printing documents
Submitting a print job
Simply follow these steps to successfully print your document.
- In your document, go to File, then Print. There, select either Print B&W on PCUT01 (for black and white printing) or Print Colour on PCUT01 (for colour printing).
- The printing system is automatically set to print double-sided. For single-sided printing or stapling, select Print Properties – this will bring up the option to change these settings:
- To alter printing, select the pull-down arrow below Print Type and change the setting to 1-Sided.
- To alter stapling, select the Finishing tab and ensure the Staple box is ticked.
- To print on non-standard paper (for example, card), select the Basic tab and ensure that the Paper Tray setting is set to Bypass. This is because non-standard paper must be fed into the machine via its Bypass tray, or it may jam the machine.
- Ready to print? Press OK! Now, you'll be able to retrieve your job by signing into any Konica Minolta device on campus. As soon as you sign in any print jobs will be automatically released. Therefore, make sure you are happy with what you have sent through before you sign in to the printer.
If you require help or assistance, please feel free to call or email Print Services:
Collecting a print job
Touch your ID card to the front of the printer to log in. The first time you do this you will have to login to associate your details with the card.
As soon as you sign in, any print job in your print queue will be automatically printed and released. This is to reduce the number of contact points.
If you need to change any aspect of your print job, such as number of copies, 2 sided printing, or printing in grayscale (if the original is in colour), you will need to do this before you send the print job through.
Use the Access button at the bottom left of the touch panel to sign out of the device.
Printing from your own device
You can send a print job from any internet enabled laptop, smartphone or tablet using ‘Web Print’. Simply log in to your PaperCut portal and select the ‘Web Print’ option on the left hand menu.
Most common file types are accepted, such as PDF, JPEG, BMP and Microsoft Office files.
Once you have uploaded your file, it can be collected from any Konica Minolta printer in the usual manner.
How much does it cost to use this service?
You will only pay the standard printing charges which are displayed on posters near the Konica Minolta devices in Fountains, Holgate and Temple Hall.
What happens if I send a document to print, but I then don't release/print it?
All print jobs are held in the queue for 24 hours, and after that point any unprinted jobs are released without charge.
Can I print webpages?
Unfortunately you cannot print web pages, as these cannot easily be saved into a file format that can be attached to an email. However, an easy workaround is to do a 'screen grab' – whilst on the page you wish to print, just press the CTRL key and the Print Screen key together. Then, you can paste this screen grab into a program such as Microsoft Word. (Please note that this workaround will not be suitable in all cases, and will generally only work on Windows based laptops and computers.)
