||This item is useful for testing the paper handling features of the printer, such as the configuration of the trays.
|MANUAL SENSOR TEST
||This item allows a service representative to test the paper path sensors and switches for correct operation.
||This item will activate individual parts independently to isolate noise, leaking, and other hardware issues.
