Print, Scan, Fax, and Copy Workflow

Important

  • Sending/receiving, saving, or expanding files may fail if the smart device enters sleep mode during these operations. Ensure that the smart device will not enter sleep mode during these operations.

  • Due to the specification of the operating system, RICOH Smart Device Connector may quit unexpectedly if you try to display a large-size file on the smart device. If this happens, reduce the size or resolution of the file.

  • Ensure not to hit the Smart Operation Panel while tapping the NFC tag with the smart device. Otherwise the screen of Smart Operation Panel may be damaged.

1On the menu of RICOH Smart Device Connector, swipe left or right to select [MFP / Printer].

2Tap the function you want to use.

3Specify the settings according to each function, such as the number of copies, the orientation of the original, or duplex printing.

Specify [Saving Destination] to use the scanner function. Also, specify [Saving Destination] when directly projecting the scanned image with the projector or on the whiteboard or transmitting the scanned data to those devices.

4When using the scanner, fax, or copier function, set the original on the machine.

5Check the method used to connect the smart device to the machine.

  • Connect with NFC *

    When using the NFC tag to connect to the machine, check that [Connect with NFC] is displayed in the upper part of the screen. If a different message is displayed, tap [Application screen illustration], select [Connect with NFC], and then return the previous screen.
