A test pattern is useful to check the print quality of your meter. Follow these steps to print a test pattern:
Select Clean printer nozzle
Select Print Test Pattern
To print the test pattern on tape, press Tape. To print on a piece of mail, place an envelope on the feed deck and press Start
Check the test pattern to verify printer functionality:
If the lines are solid and unbroken; the test pattern looks good, press Yes
If the pattern looks poor (broken or missing lines) select No. The system returns to the Maintenance menu. Select Clean Printer Nozzles. Once the printer nozzles are cleaned you are prompted to print another test pattern.
Note: Do not perform more then 3 Clean Printer Nozzles
