Ginny Wilkins (SHARP Field Trainer):

Hi, I'm Ginny with Sharp. We're going to be showing you special features that you can do for copying. So first off our basic features are on the front screen. But if you go to others, you have some additional features. We've chosen a few that are very popular.

Ginny Wilkins stands in front of a MFP. She selects the copy icon on the MFP display and then selects the “Others” button at the bottom of the copy screen.

One of which is you have an insurance card or an ID and you need the front of that card and the back of that card copied, but you want it on the same side. So you don't have to make a copy, rerun it back through the copier and actually counts as two clicks.

Ginny holds up an insurance card and motions to the printer. She opens up the MFP to the scanner.

So, is it something called card shot? Basically, you're just gonna go to card shot and turn on the feature. It's as easy as that.

She clicks the “Card Shot” option from the menu and selects the ON button on the left of the screen.

At this point, we're going to take our card and we're going to place it right in the upper left hand corner. We're gonna press black and white or color. It makes that copy, but it stops.

She exits out of the pop up and places the insurance card in the top left corner of the scanner. She closes the scanner and presses the “B/W Start” button. A pop up on screen indicates that a copy was made.

It allows you to flip it over in the exact same place and it's telling you press your next original and press start. So now we've made that front and that back. So now when we're done, we just read end. So we get that front and that back on the same side piece of paper.

She opens the scanner, flips over the card in the top left corner and closes the scanner. She clicks “B/W Start” and then selects “Read-End”.

That way when you're filing it, you can read it very easily and you don't have to rerun it back through.

A paper is printed. She picks it up and shows the camera how both sides of the insurance card were printed on the same side.

Another one that is great feature for paper savings. A lot of us are concerned. We don't want to waste a lot of paper so I can go to others and this is called N-up.

Ginny Wilkins picks up a stack of printed images. The camera zooms to the screen. She clicks the “Others” button and then selects the N-Up option.

I kind of think of like algebra and up, two up, four up or eight up. How many full size originals do you want to reduce? Two on a page? Four on a page or eight on a page?

A N-Up pop up shows four different options for number of pages on one side of the paper.

So I'm gonna take these four originals and I'm gonna tell it four up. I can decide what style of layout I want. Under border, I can decide, hey, in between those four, do I want solid lines or dotted lines?

She put the stack of 4 images into the printer, pictures facing up. The camera zooms to the screen again and she presses the 4-Up option and chooses the first layout option. She clicks “Border” and a pop-up shows three options: no lines, dotted lines and solid lines. She clicks OK to close the pop ups.

Once I choose that I press start, it actually scans it in, and reduces four sheets on a page or two or 8 to whatever I chose.Let me just show you that. It's a great. So, if I had the same document, it's a nice repeat.

She selects “B/W Start” and the MFP takes the stack of images, processes it, and puts them in a tray underneath. Then, the page with the four images is printed.

The next feature I'm gonna show you is book copying. So a lot of times when we're making a book, we make a copy and then we flip the original for the second one. I can actually take a book. There's a picture of a book right on the center of the screen. I'm going to line my binder.

She opens the MFP to the scanner and demonstrates placing the open book onto the scanner. She points to the upper middle part of the scanner to indicate the location of the book picture.

Once I do that, I'm going to go to something called dual page.

The camera zooms to the MFP screen. She clicks the CA button on the right side of the screen, then “Others” on the bottom of the screen and then “Dual Page Copy” from the pop-up. She exits out from the pop-up.

The camera zooms to the MFP screen. She clicks the CA button on the right side of the screen, then “Others” on the bottom of the screen and then “Dual Page Copy” from the pop-up. She exits out from the pop-up.

Ginny Wilkins lifts the top part of the scanner and shows the hinges pulling away from the scanner. Now when she pulls the top of the scanner downward, there is a larger space between the top and bottom to scan larger books.

What it's gonna do is give me an 8.5 by 11 of this side and an 8.5 by 11 of this side.

She points to the left page of the open book, and then points to the right page of the open book.

If I'm concerned about saving some paper, I could actually have gone into two sided and added one sided to two sided and had this paper come out back to back.

She selects “2-Sided Copy” and changes the current selection of 1-Sided -- 1 sided to 1 Sided -- 2 Sided. She pulls out the two sheets of paper printed from the book and then puts them back to back.

So these are just some of the special features that you can do on your copier.
