Staple Option appears grayed out when 'Copy to Source' is not set to Tray 1

Issue description

When making a copy through the Copy Menu, the Stapling Options are shown in the interface but are "grayed out". This happens if:

  • The “Copy To” is set to Tray 2 or Multipurpose Feeder -or-
  • The "Copy to Source" automatically matches Copy From – "Size".


To resolve this issue, the printer’s firmware should be updated. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support to receive the firmware update. Our Phone or Chat Support Agents can also guide you should you need assistance in doing the update.



Remote fix

If a customer experiences the Staple Option issue described in the customer-level section of this document, the printer’s firmware should be updated to P163 (LW1.xx.P163) or the latest version. Please escalate to your next level of support immediately in order to get a copy of the firmware.
