Learn how to use a Mac to change how the MAXIFY GX5020 operates.


Changing the Printer Operation Mode

If necessary, switch between various modes of printer operation.

  1. Make sure the printer is powered on and select Printer settings from the Remote UI.

  2. Adjust the following settings as desired:

    Print settings - Prevent paper abrasion

    The printer can increase the gap between the print head and the paper during high-density printing to prevent paper abrasion.
    Check this check box to prevent paper abrasion.

    Custom settings - Detect paper setting mismatch

    If the check box is deselected, at the time of printing from PC, you can continue to print without the message display even if the paper settings set in the Print dialog differs from the paper information registered to the printer.

    Ink drying wait time

    You can set the length of the printer rest time until printing of the next page begins. The wait time becomes longer as the value set in the list increases, and shorter as the value decreases.
    If the paper gets stained because the next page is ejected before the ink on the printed page dries, increase the ink drying wait time.

  3. Click OK.

    The printer operates with the specified settings.
