Setting the Power Failure Recovery Mode Jumper

The printer can be configured to restart itself unattended after a power failure with Power Failure Recovery Mode.
Power Failure Recovery Mode is only available on printers with a printer connectivity module installed in your printer.
The printer connectivity modules have a power failure recovery jumper which is set to OFF by default. By setting the jumper to ON, you can make the printer automatically Power ON when it is plugged into an active AC power source (meaning printer power is ON).
The discharge of electrostatic energy that accumulates on the surface of the human body or other surfaces can damage or destroy the printhead or electronic components used in this device. You must observe static-safe procedures when working with the printhead or the electronic components.
  1. Disconnect the DC power plug and any interface connectors from the rear of the printer.
  2. Remove the module access door and connectivity module. See Removing the Printer Connectivity Modules for instructions for ZD420 printer models.
    The connectivity module on a ZD620 printer model is removed in the same way a ZD420 printer’s module is removed.
  3. Move the AUTO (Power Failure Recovery Mode) jumper from the OFF position to the ON position.
  4. Reinstall the connectivity module and module access door. See Installing the Internal Ethernet (LAN) Module or Installing the Serial Port Module for ZD420 printer models.
    A ZD620 printer connectivity module is installed in the same way a ZD420 printer connectivity module is installed.
  5. Reconnect the printer DC power plug and interface cables to the printer.
