The Apple Color Printer uses Bitmap (or TrueType) fonts. The Macintosh sends a Bitmap of each page through the SCSI connection to the printer. A Bitmap is a dot-by-dot "guide" to each letter or image on the page. It is created in QuickDraw, the Macintosh's internal language.
The following TrueType fonts are shipped with the Apple Color Printer:

Standard Tray: Automatic 50-sheet paper feeder
Optional Trays: There are no optional trays available for the Apple Color Printer
To load the paper tray, follow these steps:
1. If necessary, pull out the paper tray extension.
2. If necessary, move the
head position lever to a different setting.
Use position 1 for normal printing, position 2 for printing graphics that require lots of ink, and position 3 for printing on envelopes or other thick materials.
3. Load a stack of paper or
other material into the paper tray.
Move the adjustable guide so that it just touches the edge of the stack.

Sometimes the status lights can signal a problem with the printer. The following list describes these indications and tells you what you should do about them:
Note: When the green On Line light is flashing, it indicates that the printer is printing; it does not indicate a problem.
· Both lights are off. Check to make sure the power cord is plugged in properly and there is power to the outlet. If you can't make the printer come on, see the information about service and support that comes with the printer
· The error light grows
steadily. Either the printer is out of paper or the paper has
misfed. Check your Macintosh screen and the printer's control
panel display for messages.
The control panel display can also indicate problems. The following list describes the problems that the control panel can indicate, and tells you what you should do about them.

Special Service Message
If the printer needs
service, the control panel display will display a number from 40
to 87 and the word Service. When a
service message appears, the Alarm light may light, and the
printer may beep for a few seconds.
If you see a service message, turn the printer off, wait five seconds, and turn it back on. If the service message is still there, make a note of the number displayed in front of the word Service. Then refer to the information about service and support that came with your printer.
The Apple Color printer has
two (2) SCSI ports and one parallel port.
Connection: 36-pin parallel
Connecting the Apple Color Printer to your Macintosh
To complete this procedure you need a SCSI cable and a SCSI cable terminator. To avoid problems use high-quality shielded cables (available from Apple). There are three types of SCSI cables:
· A SCSI system cable connects a SCSI device directed to the Macintosh.
· A SCSI peripheral cable connects one SCSI device to another.
· A SCSI cable extender connects a SCSI cable to a SCSI device that the cable can't reach.
Warning: Before you connect the Apple Color Printer to your Macintosh, make sure that both the printer and computer are turned off. If the power is on while you connect or disconnect SCSI cables, the computer and SCSI devices could be damaged..
