Issue Description:

The printer is having one of the following issues:

    2. Checking the message on the printer home screen: 88.47c = Cyan, 88.48y = Yellow, etc.

    3. Or observing what color toner is accumulating inside the printer: cyan, yellow, magenta, black, or a combination appearing brown or purple.

  2. Capture the supplies serial number by either:

    1. Physically checking serial number from the label found on the toner cartridge and imaging unit. The serial number is printed on a white label below a barcode. It has the format CAS123456789.

    2. Accessing the embedded web server (EWS) by keying the printer IP address on any browser, then access the supply information to check the imaging unit serial number.
