Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
How long does it take for the G4000 to switch off, after you stop using it?

I am looking up this issue and will get back to you - if you can tell me the interval, roughly, before it switches Off automatically.

Go to the Printing Preferences window - this is gotten to by way of the

View Devices and Printers

window in Control Panel (if you have a Windows computer), or else by choosing Print and then clicking on Printer Preferences or similar button, perhaps.

Then, you need to go to the Auto Power options.

You evidently have Auto Power Off enabled, in those options. You need to Disable the Auto Power Off function, for the printer to remain On permanently (until switched Off with the power switch or button or by pulling the power cord out too perhaps.)

Then when you have changed the settings in Preferences for the printer, you need to click on OK until the changed setting is saved, and the Preferences window has closed.

If you need help with this, let me know, and I will advise you further.

(- If you wish I can try remotely connecting to your computer - with your approval only - and see to getting a way worked out through this problem, for a small additional fee. I will help you further as and if needed.)
