Default to Double-Sided Copying

Double-Sided copying is one of the best ways to help save paper and cut costs. All of the new Konica-Minolta MFDs have been set to default to double-sided copying, and we highly encourage you to use this option whenever possible.  The button to change the double sided feature is right on the main screen, so it is easy for the user to select the mode they need.

If you need to change this default it can be done by following these steps standing at the MFD:

  1. Set the copier to the mode you want it in, just as you would for a copy job.  In this instance use the duplex button to select duplex 2:2 (Or 1:2, 2:1, 1:1 as your needs dictate).  Once you have all the settings set the way you want as defaults:
  2. Push 'utility/counter' button (a physical button to right of touch screen)
  3. Select 'user settings' (this and settings in steps below are on touch screen)
  4. Select 'copier settings'
  5. Select 'default copier settings'
  6. Select 'current settings' (even if it is already selected)
  7. Select OK
  8. Close screens to return to copier main menu.


Adding a shortcut for Single sided

Although the button for selecting the duplex mode is on the main screen, some users find that it is cumbersome to press it a couple times to select single sided when they need it.  There is space on the main screen for 4 'shortcuts', here is how to set one of these to be 1:1 duplex:

  1. Push 'utility/counter' button (a physical button to right of touch screen) 
  2. Select 'user settings' (this and settings in steps below are on touch screen)
  3. Select 'Custom Display Settings'
  4. Select 'copier settings'
  5. Select 'Quick Settings #4' (#4 will display as right most item on screen, under the duplex button)
  6. Select the category for Duplex
  7. Select 1:1
  8. Select OK twice, then close screens to return to copier main menu.
