All the basic functions of Canon multiuse machines can be found in Home icon. It is on up left corner of the panel marked with Home-icon (grey house).


Identification with Student Card or Copy key

Student card or copy key is used for registering yourself as user of the multiuse machine. If necessary you can pick your copy key at the University Shop (SOPPI). After identifying yourself to the system with your card or copy key, it will start charging  your user account whenever you print, copy or scan, so do take good care of your card and copy key. If you lose or damage your copy key, you will be charged material and handling costs for a new key. Note that you cannot use the machine unless you have enough balance on your account. You can load up additional balance here ???

To log in

You can release your prints, scan and copy documents with any Canon multiuse device.
Log in can be made in two different ways.

1. With the student card (recommendation) or copy key: Show the card to the reader (on the left)
When you use your card for the first time, you are asked to register (activate) the card for your own use. Give your user ID and password (the same as in university network), and your card will be registered in the system. After having done this once,  you do not need to give user ID and password anymore, just show the card to the reader.

2. Use your own user ID and password (the same as the ones you use for logging into your work station in the university network). Choose ‘Alternate registration’ (Vaihtoehtoinen kirjautuminen), and enter you user ID and password.
If you cannot access the multifunctional device with you own user ID and password, you have to change the password into a JYUNET password. This can be done at http://salasana.jyu.fi
The new password will be synchronized with other services in the university network, such as Korppi, etc. Please avoid using special characters to ensure a successful access.

If your password is OK but you will still be shown ‘Access denied’, you probably have a nearly zero or even negative balance in your account. The new equipment prevents access, if there is no balance.
