    RequirementRelevanceHow to obtain

    Logs Gzip

    Important Items:

    • When possible, be sure to reproduce the problem first and then save the Logs Gzip immediately afterwards to ensure the relevant problem logs are collected.

    • For 900 errors that restart the device, please grab the Logs Gzip after the reboot is complete.
    • This is a compressed file which contains all the logs from the printer's SE page. This also contains fwdebug for the last three (3) 900 errors as long as auto reboot is enabled.

    1. Open printer's Web interface.

      1. Open a Web browser; e.g., IE, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome.

      2. Enter the printer's IP Address followed by /se, e.g.,
