Frequently Asked Questions / Tips and Tricks
How do I set a PIN?
To use the multifunction devices you need your WWU ID and your copier PIN. You can set the PIN in the IT Portal under the menu item "Print" (alternatively under "Passwords and PINs"). You also have the option of logging on to the device with your mensa card. To do this, you must register the card in the IT Portal under the menu item "Print". The card is only used for identification purposes, the debit of your cost centre continues as usual.
To which printer do I have to send the jobs?
Prints can be sent to the printer Inpas or, in the case of Follow-Me-Printing, to print.wwu.de. The prints can then be called up on any multifunction device after login by clicking on the "PrintHere" button. It is also possible to print directly on non-public copiers. The printer must be set up by the responsible IVV.
When logging in, the message "User locked" appears. What should I do?
First make sure that you use the copier PIN to log in and not your WWU password. Check on another device to see if the login works.
I need a new cost centre card. / The old cost center cards no longer work.
The old cost centre cards (6 digits) no longer work with the new multifunction devices. Billing now runs via the print cost PSP item that was assigned to the respective organizational unit. After users have logged on to the copier, this item is charged. New cost center cards are now only issued for PSP items that do not belong to the grant budget (1er PSP). Please use your WWU ID and the copier PIN you have set to log in to the device.
The function "guest login" does not exist.
The guest login is only available on non-public devices.
The "PrintHere" button does not exist.
Please contact the Self Service Portal stating the name of the device.
How can students make copies on data media without login?
Students can log in at the public copier only using their student ID. There is also the possibility of print / scan to / from a data carrier.
How can guests or external people use the multifunction device for business?
These users can use the public devices only with a cost centre card (Kostenstellenkarte) for business relations. Copies, Scan2USB and Print from USB are the functions which can be used.
I have several PSP items - how can I choose the right one?
When you log in, you will be asked which PSP item you want to use. You can change the PSP item in between by clicking on the logout button and changing the billing target.

The devices support SD or SDHC memory cards and USB sticks with a maximum storage capacity of 32 GB. SDXC memory cards cannot be used. NTFS, FAT16 and FAT32 can be used as file systems.
