Abstract

Disclosed is a method to reset a timed-out feature found in many electrophotographic printers. As shown in the accompanying flowchart, the Eunction starts at step 10. The printer waits at step 20 until it is automatically adjusted. At step 30, a timed-out counter is started. An audible alert of approximately 10 seconds is initiated at step 40. At step 50, the function tests the reset state of the timed-out counter. If the timed-out counter is reset, the function loops back to step 30 otherwise it continues to step 60. At step 60, the function returns to a default condition after a period of inactivity and ends at step 70.
