To best serve all Konica Minolta Customers, we are providing basic information explaining the new Daylight Saving Time (DST) initiatives. In addition to DST, we are providing the steps for many of our devices to make the necessary changes for DST.

Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. would like to take this opportunity to make sure that all Customers using Konica Minolta business equipment are informed on how Daylight Saving Time impacts these devices.  To best serve all Konica Minolta Customers, we are providing basic information explaining the new Daylight Saving Time (DST) initiatives. In addition to DST, we are providing the steps for many of our devices to make the necessary changes for DST. 

Beginning March 11, 2007, Daylight Saving Time (DST) start and end dates for the United States will transition to comply with the Energy Policy Act of 2005.  Under the new law, Daylight Saving Time will begin the second Sunday of March and end the first Sunday of November, extending the timeframe by four weeks.  Due to this DST change, changes may be required to ensure that the system clock on Konica Minolta products is accurate.

If your device is equipped with firmware version Phase 2.0 or after, the clock will automatically be updated to DST for 2007.  However, if your product is equipped with older version of firmware, then manual setup is required.

The method to identify if your product is equipped with Phase 2.0 firmware (or later) is the following:

1. Go to Utility/Counter -> Admin. Management -> Admin. 2 -> Network Settings.
2. If you see the "IP Filtering" key on the lower right hand side of the screen, it means that the firmware version is Phase 2.0 (or later) and no action is required. If you do not see the "IP Filtering" key, it means that the firmware version is prior to Phase 2.0.

Following are procedures for products with firmware prior to Phase 2.0.

1. Go to Utility/Counter -> Admin. Management -> Admin. 1 -> Initial Setting -> Date & Time Setting -> Daylight Saving Time -> Select OFF -> Touch Enter.
