How do I set t he date and time on my Colour Multi Function Printer ?



The current date and time are shown on the display when your machine is on and ready to work. For the CLX-3160FN, all of your faxes will have the date and time printed on them.

    ※ Note

    If power to the machine is cut off, you need to reset the correct time and date once the power has been restored.

1. Press Menu until System Setup appears on the bottom line of the display and press OK.

2. Press OK when Machine Setup appears.

3. Press the Scroll buttons until Date & Time appears and press OK.

4. Enter the correct time and date using the number keypad.

    Month = 01 to 12

    Day = 01 to 31

    Year = requires four digits

    Hour = 01 to 12 (12-hour mode)

    00 to 23 (24-hour mode)

    Minute = 00 to 59

    ※ Note

    The date format may differ from country to country You can also use the Scroll buttons to move the cursor under the digit you want to correct and enter a new number.

5. To select AM or PM for 12-hour format, press the or button or any number button.

When the cursor is not under the AM or PM indicator, pressing the or button immediately moves the cursor to the indicator.

You can change the clock mode to 24-hour format (e.g. 01:00 PM as 13:00).

When you enter a wrong number, Out of Range appears and the machine does not proceed to the next step. If this happens, simply reenter the correct number.
