PAPER HANDLING
This chapter introduces you to the basics of selecting
print materials and loading them into your machine.
This chapter includes:
• Selecting Print Materials
• Selecting an Output Location
• Loading Paper in the Paper Tray
• Using the Manual Feeder
Selecting Print Materials
You can print on a variety of print materials, such as plain paper,
envelopes, labels, transparencies, and so on. Always use print
materials that meet the guidelines for use with this machine.
See “Paper Specifications” on page A.5. To get the best possible
print quality, use only high-quality copier-grade paper.
When you choose print materials, consider the following:
• Desired outcome: The paper you choose should be
appropriate for your project.
• Size: You can use any size paper that fits easily within the
paper adjusters of the paper tray.
• Weight: Your machine supports paper weights as follows:
- 16 ~ 24 lbs (60 ~ 90 g/m2) bond for the paper tray
- 16 ~ 43 lbs (60 ~ 163 g/m2) bond for the manual feeder
• Brightness: Some papers are whiter than others and produce
sharper, more vibrant images.
• Surface smoothness: The smoothness of the paper affects
how crisp the printing looks on the paper.
CAUTION: Using print materials that does not conform to the
specifications listed “Paper Specifications” on page A.5 may
cause problems that may require service. This service is not
covered by the warranty or service agreements.

PAPER HANDLING
Guidelines for Paper and Special Materials
When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other special
material, keep these guidelines in mind:
• Always use paper and other materials that conform with the
specifications listed under “Paper Specifications” on page A.5.
• Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper
can cause paper jams and the poor print quality.
• Use only high quality copier grade paper for the best print
quality.
• Avoid paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or a
texture that is too smooth or too rough. Paper jams may
occur.
• Store paper in its ream wrapper until you are ready to use.
Place cartons on pallets or shelves, not on the floor. Do not
place heavy objects on top of the paper, whether it is
packaged or unpackaged. Keep it away from moisture, or
other conditions that can cause it to wrinkle or curl.
• Store unused materials at temperatures between 15 oC and
30 oC (59 oF to 86 oF). The relative humidity should be
between 10 % and 70 %.
• During storage, you should use moisture-proof wrap, such as
any plastic container or bag, to prevent dust and moisture
from contaminating your paper.
• Load special paper types one sheet at a time.
• Only use materials specifically recommended for use in laser
printers.
• To prevent special materials, such as transparencies and
label sheets from sticking together, remove them as they
prints out.
• For envelopes:
- Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp, well
creased folds.
- Do not use envelopes with clasps and snaps.
- Do not use envelopes with windows, coated lining, selfadhesive seals, or other synthetic materials.
- Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes.
• For transparencies:
- Place them on a flat surface after removing them from the
machine.
- Do not leave them in the paper tray for long periods of time.
Dust and dirt may accumulate on them resulting in spotty
printing.
PAPER HANDLING
2.3

- To avoid smudging caused by fingerprints, handle them and
coated paper carefully.
- To avoid fading, do not expose the printed transparencies to
prolonged sunlight.
• For labels:
- Verify that their adhesive material can tolerate fusing
temperature of 208 oC (406.4o F) for 0.1 second.
- Make sure that there is no exposed adhesive material
between them. Exposed areas can cause labels to peel off
during printing, which can cause paper jams. Exposed
adhesive can also cause damage to machine components.
- Do not load a sheet of them through the machine more than
once. The adhesive backing is designed for one pass
through the machine.
- Do not use labels that are separating from the backing
sheet or are wrinkled, bubbled, or otherwise damaged.
• Do not use Carbonless paper and Tracing paper. Use of
these types of paper could result in chemical smells and could
damage your printer.
Selecting an Output Location
The machine has two output locations; the rear output slot (face
up) and the front output tray (face down).
To use the front output tray, make sure that the rear cover is
closed. To use the rear output slot, open the rear cover.
NOTES:
• If paper coming out of the front output tray has problems, such
as excessive curl, try printing to the rear output slot.
• To avoid paper jams, do not open or close the rear cover while
the machine is printing.
2.4
PAPER HANDLING
Printing to the Front Output Tray
(Face down)
The front output tray collects printed paper face-down in the
order in which it was printed. The tray should be used for most
print jobs.
2
If you use paper which is not long enough to reach the front
output tray, use the jam cover.
To use the jam cover:
1 Lift the jam cover. A tab automatically springs up to
support the cover.
2 Take the paper out manually.
PAPER HANDLING
2.5
3 Close the jam cover. In order to close the cover, push the
tab to the left and hold it down. Then lower the cover
carefully until the cover is holding down the tab. Then you
can move your hand and finish lowering the cover.
Be careful not to pinch your fingers!
NOTE:
• If you continuously print many pages, the surface of the output
tray may become hot. Be careful not to touch the surface, and
especially keep children away from the surface.
• The front output tray can hold up to 50 sheets of paper. Remove
the pages so that the tray is not overloaded.
Printing to the Rear Output Slot
(Face up)
Using the rear output slot, paper comes out of the machine face
up.
Printing from the manual feeder to the rear output slot provides
a straight paper path. Using the rear output slot might
improve the output quality with the following:
2.6
PAPER HANDLING
• envelopes
• labels
• small custom-sized paper
• postcards
• transparencies
To use the rear output slot:
1 Open the rear cover by pulling it upward.

CAUTION: The fusing area inside the rear part of your machine
becomes hot once the machine is turned on. Be careful when you
access this area.
2 If you do not want to use the rear output slot, close the
rear cover. The pages stack on the front output tray.
PAPER HANDLING
2.7
Loading Paper in the Paper Tray
The paper tray can hold a maximum of 250 sheets of 20 lb(75g/
m2) plain paper. For copying, you can use A4-, Letter- or Legalsized paper only. For PC-printing, you can use many different
sizes of paper; see page A.6.
To load paper, pull open the paper tray and load paper with the
print side face down.
You can load letterhead paper with the design side face down.
The top edge of the sheet with the logo should be placed at the
front side of the tray.
For details about loading paper in the paper tray, see “Loading
Paper” on page 1.8.
NOTES:
• If you experience problems with paper feed, place the paper in
the manual feeder.
• You can load previously printed paper. The printed side should
be facing up with an uncurled edge on top. If you experience
problems with paper feed, turn the paper around. Note that the
print quality is not guaranteed.
2.8
PAPER HANDLING
Using the Manual Feeder
Use the manual feeder to print transparencies, labels, envelopes
or postcards in addition to making quick runs of paper types or
sizes that are not currently loaded in the paper tray.
Postcards, 3.5 by 5.83 in.(index) cards and other custom-sized
materials can be printed with this printer. The minimum size is
76 by 127 mm (3.0 by 5.0 in.) and the maximum size is 216 by
356 mm (8.5 by 14 in.).
Acceptable print materials are plain paper with sizes ranging
from 100 x 148 mm (3.9 x 5.8 in.) to Legal, 216 x 356 mm (8.5
x 14 in.), the largest size acceptable, and weighing between 16
lb and 32 lb.
NOTES:
• Always load only the print materials specified in the
Specifications on page A.5 to avoid paper jams and print quality
problems.
• Flatten any curl on postcards, envelopes and labels before
loading them into the manual feeder.
• When you print on 76 mm X 127 mm (3 X 5 in.) sized media with
loading into the tray, open the rear output tray.
1 Load a sheet of the print material with the print side face
up into the center of the manual feeder.
For envelopes, load a sheet with the flap side face down
and with the stamp area on the top left side.
For transparencies, hold them by the edges and avoid
touching the print side. Oils from your fingers can cause
print quality problems.
For letterhead, load a sheet with the design face up, top
edge towards the printer.

Using Overlays
What is an Overlay?
Dear ABC
Regards
WORLD BEST
An overlay is text and/or images stored on the computer hard
disk drive (HDD) as a special file format that can be printed on
any document. Overlays are often used to take the place of preprinted forms and letterhead paper. Rather than using
preprinted letterhead, you can create an overlay containing the
exact same information that is currently on your letterhead. To
print a letter with your company’s letterhead, you need only tell
the machine to print the letterhead overlay on your document.
Creating a New Page Overlay
To use a page overlay, you must create a new page overlay
containing your logo or image.
1 Create or open a document containing text or an image for
use in a new page overlay. Position the items exactly as
you wish them to appear when printed as an overlay. If
needed, save the file for later use.
2 To change the print settings from your software
application, access the printer’s Properties. See page 3.2.
3 Click the Extras tab and click Edit in the Overlay section.
3.18 PRINTING
4 In the Edit Overlays window, click Create Overlay.

5 In the Create Overlay window, type a name of up to eight
characters in the File name box. Select the destination
path, if necessary. (The default is C:\Formover).
6 Click Save. The name appears on the Overlay List.
7 Click Ok or Yes to finish creating.
The file is not printed out. Instead it is stored in your
computer HDD disk.
NOTE: The overlay document size must be the same as the
documents you print with the overlay. Do not create an overlay
with a watermark.
PRINTING 3.19
Using a Page Overlay
After an overlay has been created, it is ready to be printed with
your document. To print an overlay with a document:
1 Create or open the document you want to print.
2 To change the print settings from your software
application, access the printer’s Properties. See page 3.2.
3 Click the Extras tab.
4 Select the overlay you want to print from the Overlay
drop-down list box.
5 When the overlay file you want doesn’t appear on the
Overlay List, click Edit and Load Overlay, and select the
overlay file.
If you have stored the overlay file you want to use in an
external source, you can also load the file when you access
this Load Overlay window.
After you select the file, click Open. The file appears on the
Overlay List and is available for printing. Select the overlay
from the Overlay List box.
3.20 PRINTING
6 If necessary, click Confirm Page Overlay When
Printing. When this box is checked, a message window
appears each time you submit a document for printing,
asking you to confirm your wish to print an overlay on your
document.
Answering Yes to the window means that the selected
overlay prints with your document. Answering No to the
window cancels overlay printing.
If this box is empty and an overlay has been selected, the
overlay will be automatically printed with your document.
7 Click OK or Yes until the printing starts.
The overlay downloads with your print job and prints on
your document.
NOTE: The resolution of the overlay document must be the same
as that of the document you will print with the overlay.

• Configuring Printer Properties
• Printing a Document
• Scanning a Document
Getting Started
The supplied CD-ROM provides you with Samsung’s MFP driver
package for using your machine with a Linux computer.
Samsung’s MFP driver package contains printer and scanner
drivers, providing the ability to print documents and scan
images. The package also delivers powerful applications for
configuring your machine and further processing of the scanned
documents.
After the driver is installed on your Linux system, the driver
package allows you to monitor a number of MFP devices. The
acquired documents can then be edited, printed on the same
local MFP or network printers, sent by e-mail, uploaded to a FTP
site or transferred to an external OCR system.
The MFP driver package is supplied with a smart and flexible
installation program. You don't need to search for additional
components that might be necessary for the MFP software: all
required packages will be carried onto your system and installed
automatically; this is possible on a wide set of the most popular
Linux clones.

Using the MFP Configurator
MFP Configurator is a tool primarily intended for configuring MFP
devices. Since an MFP device combines the printer and scanner,
the MFP Configurator provides options logically grouped for
printer and scanner functions. There is also a special MFP port
option responsible for the regulation of access to an MFP printer
and scanner via a single I/O channel.
After installing the MFP driver (see page 6.3), the MFP
Configurator icon will automatically be created on your desktop.
Opening the MFP Configurator
1 Double-click MFP Configurator on the desktop.
You can also click the Startup Menu icon and select
Samsung MFP and then MFP Configurator.

Sharing Ports Between Printers and Scanners
Your machine may be connected to a host computer via the USB
port. Since the MFP device contains more than one device
(printer and scanner), it is necessary to organize proper access
of “consumer” applications to these devices via the single I/O
port.
The Samsung MFP driver package provides an appropriate port
sharing mechanism that is used by Samsung printer and
scanner drivers. The drivers address their devices via so-called
MFP ports. The current status of any MFP port can be viewed via
the MFP Ports Configuration. The port sharing prevents you from
accessing one functional block of the MFP device, while another
block is in use.
When you install a new MFP printer onto your system, it is
strongly recommended you do this with the assistance of an MFP
Configurator. In this case you will be asked to choose I/O port
for the new device. This choice will provide the most suitable
configuration for MFP’s functionality. For MFP scanners I/O ports
are being chosen by scanner drivers automatically, so proper
settings are applied by default.

MAINTENANCE
Cleaning Your Machine
To maintain print quality, follow the cleaning procedures below
each time the toner cartridge is replaced or if print quality
problems occur.
NOTES:
• While cleaning the inside of the machine, be careful not to touch
the transfer roller, located underneath the toner cartridge. Oil
from your fingers can cause print quality problems.
• Cleaning the cabinet of your machine with products containing
large amounts of alcohol, solvent, or other strong substances
can discolor or crack the cabinet.
Cleaning the Outside
Clean the cabinet of the machine with a soft lint-free cloth. You
can dampen the cloth slightly with water, but be careful not to
let any water drip onto or inside the machine.
Cleaning the Inside
During the printing process, paper, toner and dust particles can
accumulate inside the machine. This build-up can cause print
quality problems, such as toner specks or smearing. Cleaning
the inside of the machine clears or reduces these problems.
1 Turn the machine off and unplug the power cord. Wait for
the machine to cool down.
2 Open the front cover and pull the toner cartridge out,
lightly pushing it down.
7
MAINTENANCE
7.3
3 With a dry lint-free cloth, wipe away any dust and spilled
toner from the toner cartridge area and the toner cartridge
cavity.
CAUTION: To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose
it to light for more than a few minutes. Cover it with a piece of paper,
if necessary. Do not touch the black transfer roller inside the machine.
4 Locate the long strip of glass (LSU) inside the top of the
cartridge compartment, and gently swab the glass to see if
dirt turns the white cotton black.
5 Reinsert the toner cartridge and close the cover.
6 Plug in the power cord and turn the machine on.
7.4
MAINTENANCE
Cleaning the Document Glass
Keeping the document glass clean helps ensure the best
possible copies. We suggest that you clean the document glass
at the start of each day and during the day, as needed.
1 Slightly dampen a soft lint-free cloth or paper towel with
water.
2 Lift the document glass.
3 Wipe the surface of the document glass until it is clean and
dry.
7
4 Wipe the underside of the white document cover until it is
clean and dry.
5 Close the document cover.
MAINTENANCE
7.5
Maintaining the Toner Cartridge
Toner Cartridge Storage
To get the most from the toner cartridge, keep the following
guidelines in mind:
• Do not remove the toner cartridge from its package until
ready for use.
• Do not refill the toner cartridge. The machine warranty
does not cover damage caused by using a refilled
cartridge.
• Store toner cartridges in the same environment as your
machine.
• To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it to
light for more than a few minutes.
Saving Toner
To save toner, use the Toner Save feature; see page 1.27. Using
this feature extends the life of the toner cartridge and reduces
your cost per page, but it also reduces the print quality.
Expected Cartridge Life
The life of the toner cartridge depends on the amount of toner
that print jobs require. When printing text at ISO 19752 5%
coverage, a new toner cartridge lasts an average of 3,000
pages. (The original toner cartridge supplied with the machine
lasts an average of 1,000 pages.) The actual number may be
different depending on the print density of the page you print.
If you print a lot of graphics, you may need to change the
cartridge more often.
NOTE: The 1,000 pages and 3,000 pages toner cartridges have
different shapes.
7.6
MAINTENANCE
Redistributing Toner
When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life, white streaks
or light print occurs. You can temporarily re-establish the print
quality by redistributing the remaining toner in the cartridge.
1
Open the front cover.
2 Pull the toner cartridge out and gently roll the cartridge 5 or
6 times to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge.
NOTE: If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth
and wash clothing in cold water. Hot water sets the toner into
fabric.
7
3 Reinstall the cartridge and close the front cover.
MAINTENANCE
7.7
Replacing the Toner Cartridge
When the toner eventually runs out, only blank pages print when a
print job is sent. At this stage, the toner cartridge needs to be
replaced. The machine stops printing.
1 Open the front cover.
2 Lightly pushing the used cartridge down, pull it out.
3 Unpack the new toner cartridge and gently roll it
horizontally four or five times to distribute the toner evenly
inside the cartridge.
Save the box and the Plastic bag for shipping.
4 Slide the new toner cartridge in until it locks into place.
5 Close the front cover.
7.8
MAINTENANCE
Cleaning the Drum
If there are streaks or spots on your print, the OPC drum of the
cartridge may require cleaning.
1 Before setting the cleaning procedure, make sure that
paper is loaded in the machine.
2 Press Menu/Exit on the control panel until "Maintenance"
appears on the top line of the display.
The first available menu item, "Clean Drum", displays on
the bottom line.
3 Press Start/Enter.
4 When the display asks you to confirm your selection, press
Start/Enter.
The machine prints a cleaning page. Toner particles on the
drum surface are affixed to the paper.
5 If the problem remains, repeat steps 1 through 4.
Consumables and Replacement
Parts
From time to time, you needs to replace the toner cartridge,
roller, and fuser unit to maintain top performance and to avoid
print quality problems and paper feed problems resulting from
worn parts.
The following items should be replaced after you have printed a
specified number of pages:
Items
Yield (Average)
Paper feeding roller
Approx. 60,000 pages
Transfer roller
Approx. 60,000 pages
Fuser unit

Suggested solutions
Light or faded
print
If a vertical white streak or faded area appears on the page:
• The toner supply is low. You may be able to temporarily
extend the toner cartridge life. See “Redistributing Toner” on
page 7.7. If this does not improve the print quality, install a
new toner cartridge.
• The paper may not meet paper specifications; for example,
the paper is too moist or too rough. See “Paper
Specifications” on page A.5.
• If the entire page is light, the print resolution setting is too
low or Toner Save mode is on. Adjust the print resolution and
turn Toner Save mode off. See page 3.8 and page 1.27
respectively.
• A combination of faded or smeared defects may indicate that
the toner cartridge needs cleaning. See “Cleaning the Drum”
on page 7.9.
• The surface of the document glass may be dirty. Clean the
document glass. See page 7.5.
• The surface of the LSU may be dirty. Clean the LSU. See
page 7.4.
Toner specks
• The paper may not meet specifications; for example, the
paper is too moist or too rough. See “Paper Specifications” on

8.14 TROUBLESHOOTING
Condition
Suggested solutions
Background
scatter
Background scatter results from bits of toner distributed on
the printed page.
• The paper may be too damp. Try printing with a different
batch of paper. Do not open packages of paper until
necessary so that the paper does not absorb too much
moisture.
• If background scatter occurs on an envelope, change the
printing layout to avoid printing over areas that have
overlapping seams on the reverse side. Printing on seams can
cause problems.
• If background scatter covers the entire surface area of a
printed page, adjust the print resolution through your
software application or the printer properties.
Miss-formed
characters
• If characters are improperly formed and producing hollow
images, the paper stock may be too slick. Try a different
paper. See “Paper Specifications” on page A.5.
• If characters are improperly formed and producing a wavy
effect, the scanner unit may need service. For service,
contact a service representative.
Page skew
• Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.

Scanning Problems
Condition
Suggested solutions
The scanner does not work.
• Make sure that you place the document to be scanned
face down on the document glass.
• There may not be enough available memory to hold
the document you want to scan. Try the Prescan
function to see if that works. Try lowering the scan
resolution rate.
• Check that the USB or parallel cable is connected
properly.
• Make sure that the USB or parallel cable is not
defective. Switch the cable with a known good cable.
If necessary, replace the cable.
• If you are using a parallel cable, ensure that it is
compliant with the IEEE 1284 standard.
• Check that the scanner is configured correctly. Check
scan setting in the SmarThru Configuration or the
application you want to use to make certain that the
scanner job is being sent to the correct port, for
example, LPT1.
The unit scans very slowly.
• Check if the machine is printing received data. Scan
the document after the current job is completed.
• Graphics are scanned more slowly than text.
• Communication speed becomes slow in scan mode
because of the large amount of memory required to
analyze and reproduce the scanned image. Set your
computer to the ECP printer mode through BIOS
setting. It will help to increase the speed. For details
about how to set BIOS, refer to your computer user’s
guide.
Message appears on your

• “Invalid handle.”
• “Scanning has failed.”
• There may be a copying or printing job in progress.
When the current job is complete, try the job again.
• The selected port is currently being used. Restart your
computer and try again.
• The printer cable may be improperly connected or the
power may be off. You must use a USB 1.1 compliant
cable or a parallel cable that supports IEEE-1284 bidirectional communications.
• The scanner driver is not installed or an operating
environment is not set up properly.
• Ensure that port is properly connected and power is
on, and then restart your computer.
• Do not use the parallel and the USB cables at the

Common Linux Problems
Problem
The machine doesn't print
Possible Cause and Solution
• Check if the printer driver is installed in your system.
Open MFP configurator and switch to the Printers tab in
Printers configuration window to look at the list of
available printers. Make sure that your machine is
displayed on the list. If not, please, invoke Add new
printer wizard to set up your device.
• Check if the printer is started. Open Printers
configuration and select your machine on the printers list.
Look at the description in the Selected printer pane. If its
status contains "(stopped)" string, please, press the Start
button. After that normal operation of the printer should
be restored. The "stopped" status might be activated
when some problems in printing occurred. For instance,
this could be an attempt to print document when MFP
port is claimed by a scanning application.
• Check if the MFP port is not busy. Since functional
components of MFP (printer and scanner) share the same
I/O interface (MFP port), the situation of simultaneous
access of different "consumer" application to the same
MFP port is possible. To avoid possible conflicts, only one
of them at a time is allowed to gain control over the
device. The other "consumer" will encounter "device
busy" response. You should open MFP ports configuration
and select the port assigned to your printer. In the
Selected port pane you can see if the port is occupied by
some other application. If this is the case, you should
wait for completion of the current job or should press
Release port button, if you are sure that the present
owner is not functioning properly.
• Check if your application has special print option such as
"-oraw". If "-oraw" is specified in the command line
parameter then remove it to print properly. For Gimp
front-end, select "print" -> "Setup printer" and edit
command line parameter in the command item.
The machine does not

• Check if your machine is attached to your computer.
Make sure that it is connected properly via the USB port
and is turned on.
• Check if the scanner driver for you machine is installed in

Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
I can't print when I
installed both Linux
Print Package (LPP) and
MFP driver on the same
machine
simultaneously.
• Since both Linux Printer Package and MFP driver make
a symbolic link to "lpr" printing command, which is
commonly used on Unix clones, it is not recommended
to use both package on the same machine.
• If you still want to use both packages simultaneously,
please install the LPP first.
• If you want to uninstall only one of them, please
uninstall both packages and install that one you want
to use again.
• If you don't want to uninstall MFP driver and install it
again, you may make the necessary symbolic link
yourself. Please, log in as root user and invoke the
following command:
ln -sf /usr/local/bin/samsung/slpr /usr/bin/lpr
Can't scan via Gimp
Front-end.
• Check if Gimp Front-end has "Xsane:Device dialog.." on

plug-in package for Gimp on Linux distribution CD or
Gimp home page. For the detail information, refer to the
Help for Linux distribution CD or Gimp Front-end
application.
If you wish to use other kind of scan application, refer to
the Help for application.

8.22 TROUBLESHOOTING
• Please avoid changing print job parameters (via SLPR
utility, for example) while a print job is in progress.
Known versions of CUPS server break the print job
whenever print options are changed and then try to
restart the job from the beginning. Since Linux MFP
driver locks MFP port while printing, the abrupt
termination of the driver keeps the port locked and
therefore unavailable for subsequent print jobs. If this
situation occurred, please, try to release the MFP port.

A.6
Guidelines for Using Paper
For the best result, use conventional 75 g/m2 (20 lb) paper. Ensure that the paper is
of good quality, and free of cuts, nicks, tears, spots, loose particles, dust, wrinkles,
voids, and curled or bent edges.
If you are unsure of what type of paper you are loading, such as bond or recycled
paper, check the label on the package.
The following problems may cause print quality deviations, jamming, or even damage
to the machine:
Symptom
Problem with Paper
Solution
Poor print quality or toner
adhesion, problems with
feeding
Too moist, too rough, too
smooth, or embossed;
faulty paper lot
Try another kind of paper,
between 100 ~ 400 Sheffield, 4
~ 5 % moisture content.
Dropout, jamming, curl
Stored improperly
Store paper flat in its moistureproof wrapping.
Increased gray background
shading/machine wear
Too heavy
Use lighter paper, use the rear
output slot.
Excessive curl problems
with feeding
Too moist, wrong grain
direction, or short-grain
construction
• Use the rear output slot.
Jamming, damage to
machine
Cut-outs or perforations
Do not use paper with cutouts
or perforations.
Problems with feeding
Ragged edges
Use good quality paper.
• Use long-grain paper.
NOTES:
• Do not use letterhead paper printed with low-temperature inks, such as those used in
some types of thermography.
• Do not use raised or embossed letterhead.
• The machine uses heat and pressure to fuse toner to the paper. Insure that any
colored paper or preprinted forms use inks that are compatible with this fusing
temperature (189 °C or 372.2 °F for 0.1 second).

Paper Storage Environment
Paper storage environment conditions directly affect the feed operation.
Ideally, the machine and paper storage environment should be at or near room
temperature, and not too dry or humid. Remember that paper is hygroscopic; it
absorbs and loses moisture rapidly.
Heat works with humidity to damage paper. Heat causes the moisture in paper to
evaporate, while cold causes it to condense on the sheets. Heating systems and air
conditioners remove most of the humidity from a room. As paper is opened and used,
it loses moisture, causing streaks and smudging. Humid weather or water coolers can
cause the humidity to increase in a room. As paper is opened and used it absorbs any
excess moisture, causing light print and dropouts. Also, as paper loses and gains
moisture it can become distorted. This can cause paper jams.
Care should be taken not to purchase more paper than can be used in a short time
(about 3 months). Paper stored for long periods may experience heat and moisture
extremes, which can cause damage. Planning is important to prevent damage to
large supplies of paper.
Unopened paper in sealed reams can remain stable for several months before use.
Opened packages of paper have more potential for environment damage, especially
if they are not wrapped with a moisture-proof barrier.
The paper storage environment should be properly maintained to ensure optimum
performance. The optimum condition is 20 to 24 °C (68 to 75 °F), with a relative
humidity of 45 % to 55 %. The following guidelines should be considered when
evaluating the paper’s storage environment:
•
Paper should be stored at or near room temperature.
•
The air should not be too dry or too humid.
•
The best way to store an opened ream of paper is to rewrap it tightly in its moistureproof wrapping. If the machine environment is subject to extremes, unwrap only the
amount of paper to be used during the day’s operation to prevent unwanted moisture
changes.

A.9
Envelopes
Envelope construction is critical. Envelope fold lines can vary considerably, not only
between manufacturers, but also within a box from the same manufacturer.
Successful printing on envelopes depends upon the quality of the envelopes. When
selecting envelopes, consider the following components:
•
Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should not exceed 90g/m2 (24lb) or
jamming may occur.
•
Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat with less than 6mm (0.25in.)
curl, and should not contain air.
•
Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled, nicked or otherwise damaged.
•
Temperature: You should use envelopes that are compatible with the heat and
pressure of the machine.
•
Size: You should only use envelopes within the following size ranges
NOTES:
• Use only the manual feeder to print envelopes.
• You may experience some paper jams when using any media with a length less than
140 mm (5.5 in.). This may be caused by paper that has been affected by
environmental conditions. For optimum performance, make sure you are storing and
handling the paper correctly. Please refer to “Paper Storage Environment” on page A.9.
Envelopes with Double Side Seams
Double side-seam construction has vertical seams at both ends of the envelope
rather than diagonal seams. This style may be more likely to wrinkle. Be sure the
seam extends all the way to the corner of the envelope as illustrated below.
Correct
Incorrect
A.10
Envelopes with Adhesive Strips or Flaps
Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one flap that folds over to
seal must use adhesives compatible with the heat and pressure in the machine. The
extra flaps and strips might cause wrinkling, creasing or even jams and may even
damage the fuser.
Envelope Margins
The following gives typical address margins for a commercial #10 or DL envelope.
Type of Address
Minimum
Maximum
Return address
15 mm (0.6 in.)
51 mm (2 in.)
Delivery address
51 mm (2 in.)
90 mm (3.5 in.)
NOTES:
• For the best print quality, position margins no closer than 15 mm (0.6 in.) from the
edges of the envelope.
• Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s seams meet.
Envelope Storage
Proper storage of envelopes helps contribute to print quality. Envelopes should be
stored flat. If air is trapped in an envelope, creating an air bubble, then the envelope
may wrinkle during printing.
A
A.11
Labels
CAUTIONS:
• To avoid damaging the machine, use only labels recommended for laser printers.
• To prevent serious jams, always use the manual feeder to print labels and always use
the rear output tray.
• Never print on the same sheet of labels more than once and never print on a partial
sheet of labels.
When selecting labels, consider the quality of each component:
•
Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at 208°C (406.4°F), the machine’s
fusing temperature.
•
Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing between them. Labels can
peel off sheets with spaces between the labels, causing serious jams.
•
Curl: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no more than 13mm (5in.) of curl in
any direction.
•
Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles or other indications of separation.
Transparencies
Transparencies used in the machine must be able to withstand 165°C (329°F), the
machine’s fusing temperature.
CAUTION: To avoid damaging the machine, use only transparencies recommended for
use in laser printers.
