4. Complete installation
Multi-function printers (MFP) by Ricoh or Sharp; copy, scan and print.
Many MFP printers are equipped with the Pullprint function, i.e. they have card readers that authenticate the users before letting them choose what to do.
Pullprint printers allow you to copy, scan and print. However, they require the use of access cards that must be scanned on the card reader attached to the printer.
A pullprint print queue is a queue consisting of several printers available throughout Campus.
The pickup deadline for printouts is within 24 hours at one of the printing points:
The location of the printer is stated as follows: P46-PA497 MFP
Multi-function printers (MFP) can also be used for copying.
Contact email@example.com in case of difficulties.
Multi-function printers (MFP) can also make scans and copies.
Points that you should review in case of printing problems before contacting the IT service desk. In case of errors with a Ricoh printer, contact Ricoh’s service telephone.
4.1 PC without attached printer
All OsloMet's PCs should have Pullprint installed. If you are using an OsloMet PC without Pullprint, you can install it here.
If this doesn’t solve the problem, inform the IT service desk by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
4.2 Empty toner
If a printer is out of toner, contact the service telephone of the printer in question, e.g. Ricoh, see Order Toner.
4.3 Out of paper
If a printer is out of paper, contact the administration at your department / unit. This is the department's responsibility.
4.4 Printing large files / several pages
If you need to print several pages, we advice you to test the printer first by printing only the first page. If it comes out fine, you can print the remaining pages.
4.5 Split up large printing jobs
You may also want to divide large printing jobs into several parts. E.g. by first printing pages 1-50, then pages 51-100.
4.6 No access to printer
If you do not have access to the printer on your machine, you must add it again.
If you have recently changed your password, you will not be able to access the printer(s) added to your personal computer (PC / Mac). The message usually reads “Server offline”. In this case you must add the printer again. Go to the printer intallation guides.
Pullprint are printers equipped with a card reader that authenticates the students’ and employees’ admission cards.
The print queue is called Pullprint and consists of a network of printers. The printout can be obtained from any one of these.
Pullprint is the actual printing part of Safecom; the printing and payment system used at OsloMet.
