How to Turn on Energy Saver on a Kyocera Printer

Estimated reading time: 1 min

The article describes how to edit or turn on your Kyocera MFP’s energy and low power timers. The energy and low power timers on your Kyocera MFP will let you set restrictions on your TASKalfa or ECOSYS machine based on your average power consumption. The sleep timer can be set to a lower setting when printing low volumes, allowing your office to save energy. During high-volume parts of your season, you can lengthen the timer of your MFP Copier.

Below is a great video from Sam demonstrating how to edit the Energy Saver timer and Sleep timer settings!

1. Press the ‘System Menu’ button

To get started, from the Kyocera Printer’s interface, click the system menu button.

(From here you can change the low power and sleep timer by pressing on the respective button)
You will see two options once you have logged in as an administrator. The first option will be the sleep timer, and the second will be the low power option. It is possible to set the sleep timer and the low power timer to a maximum of 120 minutes.

Using the sleep timer, the Kyocera machine is put into a deeper energy conservation mode; as a result, it takes 30-40 minutes for the Kyocera Machine to become ready for use. When the low power timer is used, the fuser stays in high energy mode, allowing for rapid recovery and faster printing times since the fuser stays active rather than going to sleep.
