Configuring printer hard disk encryption

Note: Your printer may not have a hard disk installed.

Enabling hard disk encryption helps prevent the loss of sensitive data in the event your printer or its hard disk is stolen.

Using the Embedded Web Server

  1. From the Embedded Web Server, click Settings > Security > Disk Encryption.

    Note: Disk Encryption appears in the Security Menu only when a formatted, non-defective printer hard disk is installed.
  2. From the Disk encryption menu, select Enable.


  3. Click Submit.

Using the printer control panel

  1. Turn off the printer.

  2. Hold down the keypad number two and the keypad number six while turning the printer on. Release the buttons only when the screen with the progress bar appears.

    The printer performs a power-on sequence, and then the Configuration menu appears. Once the printer is fully powered up, the touch screen displays a list of functions, instead of standard home screen icons such as Copy or Fax.

  3. Touch Disk Encryption > Enable.

    Note: Enabling disk encryption will erase the contents of the printer hard disk.
  4. Touch Yes to proceed with disk wiping.

    A status bar will indicate the progress of the disk wiping task. After the disk has been encrypted, the printer will return to the Enable/Disable screen.


  5. Touch Back, and then Exit Config Menu.

The printer will power-on reset, and then return to normal operating mode.
