Getting help with Papercut and printing

If you experience trouble with the coin tower/CPAD, an easy troubleshooting step is to power cycle it:

  1. Unplug both power cables
  2. Count to 5
  3. Plug both power cables back in and wait several minutes for it to power up

If the problem persists, contact the appropriate organization for support (see below for details). If you are uncertain about who to contact, call the SCLS Help Desk.
