Probably the most common usage of the Kyocera CopyStar printers is to use them as a regular printer. Although the process is not as straightforward as for other types of printer, the process for printing to these devices is still fairly simple:
The following instructions are based on Windows, because the majority of users use that operating system. The process for Mac users is so similar that these instructions can also be followed for that operating system (any differences are pointed out in the instructions).
Kyocera printers on Windows computers default to printing in black and white. To obtain color prints click on Printer Properties and select Full Color from the option on the bottom-right of the Basic tab. Click OK.
It's necessary to install two separate printer drivers for color and grayscale print jobs from a Mac. Therefore, which printer you choose will determine whether the output is in color or in black and white.
Please note: If you press Cancel at this stage you will still get a notice that your job has been successfully sent to the printer. This is not true, and is just a quirk of the PaperCut application. Your print job will not be available on the copier, and your department will not get charged.
Your print job will remain in the queue for one hour. If the job is not released before that time, it will be automatically deleted.
You do not need to use your department's Kyocera CopyStar if you are heading to another area. You can log into any Kyocera and access your queued print jobs.
If you find that you have issues printing, please have a look at the Maintenance section for technical support information.
