Printing

Printers available for PPE group usage are given on the PrintQueues page.

The recommended printer for general use is the colour duplex Kycoera printer located in room 484 (ld from linux, PPEKYC5030 from windows). Also in room 484 is a black and white duplex Kyocera printer (la/PPEKYD7) and the hp4600 colour duplex printer (le/PPELJ4600). Please do not use the hp4600 unless the colour Kyocera printer is unavailable as the running costs for this printer are higher.

In addition to the printer in room 484 there are smaller black and white printers located is various office in the group, see PrintQueues for the full list.

For bulk b/w printing, the Oce copier can be used. The copier provides the cheapest black and white output, by a considerable factor, and offers double-sided printing, collation, stapling etc.: check current departmental requirements re. PIN access to your output.

The departmental A0-size HP DesignJet 800 PCL printer is available, for posters etc. Please test your print jobs on an A4 size printer before sending them to this printer. Inks and paper supplies are expensive: please use carefully. Ian MacVicar is responsible for this printer and should be contacted if it fails.

Please keep printer areas tidy. There are no operators to clean up behind us: this is a community responsibility for us all. Please take your printouts from room 484 promptly and put waste paper into the paper recycling bins. Take responsibility for your own accidents or unintended printouts - do not leave them lying around to get in the way and confuse other users.

If a printer is found to be out of toner or paper:

  • Toner for printers is stored in room 484, usually under the bench. If you're un-sure about changing the toner cartridge please see Valerie Flood.
  • Some paper is stored in room 484. If there is none, a box (5 reams) can be obtained from Stores during their normal hours. Please do not pilfer paper supplies from the copier room (except in an emergency).
