  • On compatible Android devices with at least 512MB of RAM, the app can scan up to 60 pages at A4/color/200 dpi or 15 pages at A3/color/600 dpi.
Discovery and network

What type of connection do I need to print or scan from my mobile device?

  • On iOS devices, there are two methods by which you can transfer files to a desktop computer. You can either send the file by e-mail from within the app, or use the app’s File Share feature to directly access your desktop computer. On Android devices, you can e-mail files that you have saved in the app to any e-mail account that you can access from your desktop computer.

    • From Wi-Fi: In the app's Documents window, tap the Wi-Fi icon to access the File Share feature. With File Share, you can transfer files between the app and a desktop computer.
    • Imported files can be retrieved in the app’s Documents window. On Android devices, you must transfer files to your specified download folder or the default /sdcard/Download folder in order for them to be available to the app.

Can I transfer files from the app to a desktop computer?

  • On iOS devices, there are two methods by which you can transfer files to a desktop computer. You can either send the file by e-mail from within the app, or use the app’s File Share feature to directly access your desktop computer. On Android devices, you can e-mail files that you have saved in the app to any e-mail account that you can access from your desktop computer.

What is File Share?

  • File Share is a TA/UTAX Mobile Print feature that is available only on iOS devices. It lets you transfer files between your mobile device and desktop computer. In the app's Documents window, tap the Wi-Fi icon to access the File Share feature. In the appropriate fields, create a user name and password. Once those are entered, the IP address of your mobile device will appear. Turn on File Share. Then type the IP address into the address bar of any web browser on your desktop computer. A page will open displaying the files that are stored within TA/UTAX Mobile Print on your mobile device. You can then transfer files to and from your desktop computer using the commands on the page.
E-mailing and web browsing

How does TA/UTAX Mobile Print work with e-mail?

  • You can send e-mails with document or image attachments from within the app if your device is properly configured to send and receive e-mails.

How do I print an e-mail attachment?

  • To print an e-mail attachment, you must import the file to the app to make it available for printing. (For further details, see topic “Can I import files to the app?” above.)

How does TA/UTAX Mobile Print handle web browsing?

  • TA/UTAX Mobile Print has a built-in web browser for accessing the Internet. You can print webpages accessed through the browser.

Can I print from my online accounts, such as free e-mail accounts or cloud-based services?

  • You can print in-line text, but not attached files or files in cloud-based storage such as Evernote or Google Documents.

Does the built-in web browser support bookmarking?

  • In the app’s built-in web browser, you can bookmark pages you wish to save. To bookmark a page, tap the Add icon in the address bar. You may edit the title of the bookmark, but not the URL. The bookmark title can be up to 100 characters in length. To view existing bookmarks, tap the Bookmark icon next to the address bar.
Troubleshooting

My printing device isn’t showing up in the discovered device list. What can I do?

  • Check if your printing device is supported.
  • Check your local area network connections and confirm that your mobile device is wirelessly connected to the network.
  • Retry discovery.
  • Try another discovery method.
  • Type in the IP address directly.

How do I find the IP address of my TA/UTAX printing device or MFP?

  • Go to the system menu of the printing device and print out a status page.

When I print documents from iWork or Microsoft Office, they appear blurry. Why?

  • The app can only print iWork and Microsoft Office documents in low resolution.

When I print documents from iWork or Microsoft Office that are formatted in landscape orientation, they appear on the paper in portrait orientation. Why?

  • The app can only print iWork and Microsoft Office documents in portrait orientation.

I’m having trouble previewing Microsoft Office files. Why?

  • TA/UTAX Mobile Print uses iOS services to render previews of Office documents. For better results, use files produced in Office 2007 or later.

Why can’t I preview the PDF that I just scanned?

  • On Android devices, PDF preview of scans is not supported by the app. To preview scanned PDFs, save the scan to your specified download folder or the default /sdcard/Download folder. Then, outside the app, open another PDF reader app, such as Adobe Reader, to view the scanned PDF.

I resized a document by pinching it in the viewport, and then I printed it. Why does the printed document have a large black stripe running down the right margin?

  • The app does not support pinch gestures on .HTML files, .RTF files, all iWork and Microsoft Office files, or anything accessed through the built-in web browser. To print these file types at their normal size, refrain from using pinch gestures in the viewport prior to printing.

While using the app on my iOS device I received a message about “low memory.” What does this mean?

  • Your iOS device will send a warning message when memory allocation becomes low. When memory allocation becomes low, the system will attempt to free up memory that is being used by open apps. If not enough memory is freed up, it’s possible that apps will crash. Closing open apps on your mobile device may alleviate the problem.

I sent a print job, but my printing device is not responding. Why? 

  • Check that your devices are connected to your local area network, and that the printing device is turned on and not in sleep mode.

Printing/scanning performance is slow, what should I do?

  • Selecting a lower resolution option may help. It is also possible that your network connection is slow, which can affect printing performance. Also, consider adding more RAM to your printing device. The recommended amount is 512MB at minimum.

I'm a system administrator. How can I set printing and scanning restrictions?

  • The system administrator can restrict printing and scanning through Command Center by turning on local authentication or network authentication. With local authentication turned on in the MFP device, user restrictions are set to print for iOS devices and print and scan for Android devices. With network authentication turned on in the MFP device, user restrictions are set to scan for Android devices. Additionally, print restrictions for both iOS and Android devices are handled by the user login fields in the app. Scan restrictions for Android devices are also handled by user login and authentication mode in the app.

Why do I encounter errors when I try to print an encrypted PDF file?

  • It’s possible that the MFP device does not support the PDF version of the document; only PDF versions 1.4 through 1.7 are supported. Or, the MFP device might not support the PDF encryption method used on the encrypted file.

Why is text displayed on or printed from my mobile device’s clipboard illegible?

  • It’s possible that the text encoding of the clipboard content differs from the text encoding that is set on the mobile device. Or, the clipboard content might be set to a font that is not supported by the mobile device. Changing the setting for Advanced > Text encoding (Clipboard) in the app might alleviate the problem.
