PostBase Mailing System Quick Tips/Troubleshooting

Most errors can be cleared by following the prompts on the screen and/or powering down and then restarting the system.

Please remember when restarting your machine:

postbase back

  • You need to take out your internet cable first, then firmly press and release the silver power button

 

  • Once completely off plug in your internet cable in first before you turn your machine back on. Firmly press and release the silver power button (it will illuminate blue when power is on)

 

  • (Note: The Ethernet/CAT-5 cable must be connected to the PostBase BEFORE the system was turned on.)

 

Like most things we own a simple restart can fix most problems, like your cell phone, your cable TV, your husband..

Be good to your office copier and your office copier will be good to your business.

POST

1. Office Copiers Need (a little) Care:

If the copier hasn’t been used for several days, such as over a weekend, it’s important to run a few test prints before using the copier intensively.

Make sure to replace old paper with a new stack and check for any jams before the day gets started.

Most copiers, when left idle for a period of time, will go into sleep mode and initiate a calibration mode once started up again.

Be patient. The machine is doing this for a reason and pressing the copy button a million times won’t speed up this important process.

BTW you can’t copy spaghetti
