How to use the photocopiers

  1. Place your LMUcard or Legic-Karte on the card reader, which you will find on the right-hand side of the copier.
  2. The amount of credit on the card will be checked and activated for the system. Please leave your LMUcard or Legic-Karte on the card reader during the entire printing procedure, including the final logout.
  3. Select the function "Copy" on the touch screen.
  4. Place your original document on the platen (glass plate).
  5. Enter the desired print settings, then press the green button.
  6. For further options, such as "single-sided to double-sided" etc., press the Ricoh menu button.
  7. The so-called document feeder can be used to scan multiple loose sheets. Place the originals with the text side uppermost in the feed tray on the top cover of the photocopier.
  8. As soon as printing has finished, ensure you log out correctly using the logout button on the copier.
  9. When the display shows that the remaining credit has been booked back to your LMUcard or Legic-Karte, please remove your Card from the card reader. Please note: To ensure credit is booked back correctly, please do not remove your LMUcard or Legic-Karte from the card reader until the logout procedure has been completed. If necessary replace your LMUcard or Legic-Karte on the card reader.

You will find illustrated instructions on the wall poster near each of our photocopiers.
