what does PLATEN IS UP mean?
Eileen W on Jun 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It appears the device is set for 11 x 17" paper, if you don't want to use that size, then the devices setting should be changed via the front panel or by via the device's internal web page. You can get there by simply adding the IP address (for example, 192.168.1.1) into the web browser of your computer. You are also welcome to also call Ricoh technical support at 800-RICOH-38 for troubleshooting.
