Kyocera TASKalfa: Everything You Need to Know About Copying



One of the most used features of a Kyocera TASKalfa multifunction printer is the copy function. Copying documents using a copier is the act of creating an exact reproduction of an original document. Because of that, modern offices across the world utilize copying on a daily basis. Kyocera TASKalfa copiers in particular are streamlined with high quality functionality, and they bring many benefits to the table.

How to Copy on a Kyocera TASKalfa Copier

If you need to make a copy using a Kyocera TASKalfa copier, there are two main methods of doing so. The first method is feeding a document through the document feeder at the top. The second method is placing the document on the glass. Between these two options, the document feeder excels in copying multiple documents while the glass allows for higher quality single-page copies. 

In order to copy with one of the aforementioned methods, begin by either pressing the Copy option on the touch screen or the copy button on the control panel. Once in the copy menu, place the original document that needs to be copied in the document feeder or on the glass depending on your needs. The device will automatically determine if there is a document on the glass or in the document feeder. From there, press Start, and the device will copy the document.

If you're having trouble the below breakdown may help to follow depending on if you're using the document feeder or the glass. 

When using the document feeder to copy:

  1. Place your document or documents face up on the feeder, adjusting the side fences to correct width as needed. A green light will light up on the start button when everything is correctly in place.
  2. Press copy on the home screen.
  3. Key in the number of copies required by selecting the option in the top right corner.
  4. Press the Start button.


When using the glass to copy:

  1. Place document face down on the glass.
  2. Press copy on the home screen.
  3. Key in the number of copies required by selecting the option in the top right corner.
  4. Press the Start button.


How to Copy Double-Sided Documents on a Kyocera TASKalfa Copier

Although using the copy function of a Kyocera is a simple affair, there are plenty of copying features on Kyocera TASKalfa devices that you might not notice at first glance. For example, duplex copying might go unnoticed by those who do not need it. Duplex copying simply refers to copying a double-sided document. 

To utilize duplex copying, enter the Copy menu and search for the option that indicates 1-sided or 2-sided copying. Selecting the duplex option there allows for production of 2-sided copies. When using the duplex option, the easiest method is to feed it through the document feeder.
