"My Shortcuts" icon no longer appears after restarting the printer. The same scenario may happen even after enabling the icon from the printer.


Suggested Remedy

  1. Restart the printer and see whether the icon re-appears.
  2. Update the printer's firmware to the latest code level.


How to check the firmware code level of the printer

If the printer is connected to the network, you can check its firmware code through the Embedded Web Server (EWS). To do this:

  1. Open a browser and enter the IP address of the printer.
  2. Select Reports.
  3. Select Device Information.
  4. Check the first 3 or 4 digits of the Base. The number that appears right after the first two letters corresponds to the code level; i.e., LW0 = EC0, LW1 = EC1, etc. Click here to see an example screen shot of a printer with EC1 code.

Another way of checking the code level is by printing the Menu Settings pages. To do this in the printer’s operator panel screen, navigate through: Settings > Reports > Menu Settings.
