letterhead. To print a letter with your company’s letterhead, you do not need to load preprinted letterhead paper in
the machine just print the letterhead overlay on your document.

the middle number to whatever you wish. For details about changing the code, see Changing the fax setup options
Receiving faxes using DRPD mode
Distinctive Ring is a telephone company service which enables an user to use a single telephone line to answer
several different telephone numbers. The particular number someone uses to call you is identified by different
ringing patterns, which consist of various combinations of long and short ringing sounds. This feature is often used
by answering services who answer telephones for many different clients and need to know which number someone is
calling in on to properly answer the phone.
Using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD) feature, your fax machine can learn the ring pattern you
designate to be answered. Unless you change it, this ringing pattern will continue to be recognized and answered as
a fax call, and all other ringing patterns will be forwarded to the extension telephone or answering machine plugged
into the EXT socket. You can easily suspend or change DRPD at any time.
Before using the DRPD option, Distinctive Ring service must be installed on your telephone line by the telephone
company. To set up DRPD, you will need another telephone line at your location, or someone available to dial your
fax number from outside.
To set up the DRPD mode:

8.
Call your fax number from another telephone. It is not necessary to place the call from a fax machine.
When your machine begins to ring, do not answer the call. The machine requires several rings to learn the
pattern.
When the machine completes learning, the display shows Completed DRPD Setup. If the DRPD setup fails,
Error DRPD Ring appears.
Press OK when DRPD appears and start over from step 6.
DRPD must be set up again if you re-assign your fax number, or connect the machine to another
telephone line.
After DRPD has been set up, call your fax number again to verify that the machine answers with a fax
tone. Then have a call placed to a different number assigned to that same line to be sure the call is
forwarded to the extension telephone or answering machine plugged into the EXT socket.
Receiving in secure receiving mode
You may need to prevent your received faxes from being accessed by unauthorized people. You can turn on secure
receiving mode to restrict printing of received faxes when the machine is unattended. In secure receiving mode, all

Cleaning the machine
If printing quality problems occur or if you use your machine in a dusty environment, you need to clean your machine
regularly to keep the best printing condition and use your machine longer.
Cleaning the cabinet of the machine with cleaning materials containing large amounts of alcohol, solvent, or
other strong substances can discolor or distort the cabinet.
If your machine or the surrounding area is contaminated with toner, use a cloth or tissue dampened with
water to clean it. If you use a vacuum cleaner, toner blows in the air and might be harmful.
Cleaning the outside
Clean the machine cabinet with a soft, lint-free cloth. Dampen the cloth slightly with water, but be careful not to let
any water drip onto or into the machine.
Cleaning the inside
During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles can accumulate inside the machine. This buildup can
cause print quality problems, such as toner specks or smearing. Cleaning the inside of the machine clears and
reduces these problems.
1.
2.
Turn the machine off and unplug the power cord. Wait for the machine to cool down.
Open the front door and pull the toner cartridge out. Set it on a clean flat surface
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 green surface underside of the toner cartridge. Use the handle on the cartridge to
avoid touching this area.
3.
With a dry, lint-free cloth, wipe away any dust and spilt toner from the toner cartridge area.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
While cleaning the inside of the machine, be careful not to damage the transfer roller or any other inside
parts. Do not use solvents such as benzene or thinner to clean. Printing quality problems can occur and
cause damage to the machine.
4.
Locate the long strip of glass (LSU) inside the top of the cartridge compartment and gently clean the glass with a
swab.
5.
6.
Reinsert the toner cartridge and close the front door.
Plug in the power cord and turn the machine on.
Cleaning the scan unit
Keeping the scan unit clean helps ensure the best possible copies. We suggest that you clean the scan unit at the
start of each day and during the day, as needed.

Storing the Toner cartridge
Toner cartridges are sensitive to light, temperature, and humidity. It is recommended that users follow the these
recommendations to ensure optimum performance, highest quality, and longest life from your new Dell toner cartridge.
Store this cartridge in the same environment as the printer it will be used in; this should be in controlled office
temperature and humidity conditions. The toner cartridge should remain in its original, unopened package until
installation – If original packaging is not available, cover the top opening of the cartridge with paper and store in a dark
cabinet.
Opening the cartridge package prior to use significantly shortens its useful shelf and operating life. Do not store on the
floor. If the toner cartridge is removed from the printer, always store the cartridge:
Inside the protective bag from the original package.
Store lying flat (not standing on end) with the same side facing up as if they were installed in the machine.
Do not store the toner in
Temperature greater than 40 °C (104 °F).
Humidity range less than 20% and not greater than 80%.
An environment with extreme changes in humidity or temperature.
Direct sunlight or room light.
Dusty places.
A car for a long period of time.
An environment where corrosive gases are present.
An environment with salty air.
Handling instructions
Do not touch the surface of the photosensitive drum in the cartridge.
Do not expose the cartridge to unnecessary vibrations or shock.
Never manually rotate the drum, especially in the reverse direction; this can cause internal damage and toner
spillage.
Use of non-Dell and refilled toner cartridge
Dell does not recommend or approve the use of non-Dell brand toner cartridges in your printer including generic,
store brand, refilled, or remanufactured toner cartridges.
Dell’s printer warranty does not cover damage to the machine caused by the use of a refilled, remanufactured,
or non-Dell brand toner cartridge.
Estimated cartridge life
Estimated cartridge life (the life of the toner cartridge yield) depends on the amount of toner that print jobs require.
The actual print-out number may vary depending on the print density of the pages you print on, operating
environment, printing interval, media type, and/or media size. For example, if you print a lot of graphics, the
consumption of the toner is high and you may need to change the cartridge more often.
Tips for moving & storing your machine
When moving the machine, do not tilt or turn it upside down. Otherwise, the insides of the machine may be
contaminated by toner, which can cause damage to the machine or bad print quality.
You requre at least two people to move the machine.

Sharing Ports Between Printers and Scanners
Your machine may be connected to a host computer via a parallel port or USB port. Since the printer contains
more than one device (printer and scanner), it is necessary to organize proper access of user-installed
applications to these devices via the single I/O port.
The Unified Linux Driver package provides an appropriate port sharing mechanism that is used by Dell printer and
scanner drivers. The drivers talk to their devices via so-called machine ports. The current status of any machine
port can be viewed via the Ports configuration. The port sharing prevents you from accessing one functional
block of the machine device, while another block is in use.
When you install a new machine device onto your system, it is strongly recommended you do this with the
assistance of an Unified Driver 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 machine’s functionality. For machine scanners, I/O
ports are being chosen by scanner drivers automatically, so proper settings are applied by default.

Using the document feeder, you can load up to 40 sheets of paper (75 g/m 2 , 20 lb bond) for one job.
1. Flex or fan the edge of the paper stack to separate the pages before loading originals.
2.
Load the original face up into the document feeder. Make sure that the bottom of the original stack matches the
paper size marked on the document input tray.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
3.
Adjust the document feeder width guides to the paper size.
Dust on the document feeder glass may cause black lines on the printout. Always keep the glass clean (See
Cleaning the scan unit).
Selecting print media
You can print on a variety of print media, such as plain paper, envelopes, labels, and transparencies. Always use print
media that meet the guidelines for use with your machine.
Guidelines to select the print media
Print media that does not meet the guidelines outlined in this user’s guide may cause the following problems:
Poor print quality
Increased paper jams
Premature wear on the machine.
Properties, such as weight, composition, grain, and moisture content, are important factors that affect the machine’s
performance and the output quality. When you choose print materials, consider the following:
The type, size, and weight of the print media for your machine are described in print media specifications (See
Print media specifications ).
Desired outcome: The print media you choose should be appropriate for your project.
Brightness: Some print media are whiter than others and produce sharper, more vibrant images.
Surface smoothness: The smoothness of the print media affects how crisp the printing looks on the paper.
Some print media may meet all of the guidelines in this section and still not produce satisfactory results. This
may be the result of improper handling, unacceptable temperature, and humidity levels, or other variables
over which cannot be controlled.
Before purchasing large quantities of print media, ensure that it meets the requirements specified in this
user’s guide.
Using print media that does not meet these specifications may cause problems, requiring repairs. Such repairs
are not covered by the warranty or service agreements.
The amount of paper put into the tray may differ according to media type used (See Print media specifications
).

Tips on using the manual tray
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
If you select Manual Feeder for Source from your software application, you need to press OK each time you
print a page and load only one type, size and weight of print media at a time in the manual tray.
To prevent paper jams, do not add paper while printing when there is still paper in the manual tray. This also
applies to other types of print media.
Print media should be loaded face up with the top edge going into the manual tray first and be placed in the
center of the tray.
Always load the specified print media only to avoid paper jams and print quality problems (See Print media
specifications ).
Flatten any curl on postcards, envelopes, and labels before loading them into the manual tray.
1.
Load the paper in the manual tray.
Do not force the paper beyond the surface with
mark when loading.
When printing the special media, you must follow the loading guideline (See Printing on special
media).
When papers overlap when printing using manual tray, open tray 1 and remove overlapping papers
then try printing again.
When paper does not feed well while printing, push the paper in manually until it starts feeding
automatically.
2.
Squeeze the manual tray paper width guides and adjust them to the width of the paper. Do not force them
too much, or the paper will bent resulting in a paper jam or skew.

Envelope
Successful printing on envelopes depends upon the quality of the envelopes.
To print an envelope, the stamp area is on the left side and the end of the envelope with the stamp area enters the
printer first and the envelope in the center of the manual tray with the stamp area entering the printer first and
keeping the stamp on the left.
If envelopes are printed out with wrinkles, crease or black bold lines, open the rear cover and pull down the pressure
lever and try printing again. Keep the rear cover opened during printing.
1.
Pressure lever
When selecting envelopes, consider the following factors:
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should not exceed 90 g/m 2 otherwise, jam may occur.
Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat with less than 6 mm curl, and should not contain air.
Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled, nicked, nor damaged.
Temperature: Use envelopes that are compatible with the heat and pressure of the machine during
operation.
Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp-and well-creased folds.
Do not use stamped envelopes.
Do not use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows, coated lining, self-adhesive seals, or other synthetic
materials.
Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes.
Be sure the seam at both ends of the envelope extends all the way to the corner of the envelope.
1.
2.
Acceptable
Unacceptable
Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one flap that folds over to seal, must use adhesives
compatible with the machine’s fusing temperature of about 170 °C (338 °F) for 0.1 second. The extra flaps and
strips might cause wrinkling, creasing, or jams, and may even damage the fuser.
For the best print quality, position margins no closer than 15 mm (0.59 inches) from the edges of the envelope.
Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s seams meet.
Transparency
To avoid damaging the machine, use only transparencies designed for use in laser printers.
Transparencies used in the machine must be able to withstand machine’s fusing temperature.
Place them on a flat surface after removing them from the machine.
Do not leave unused transparencies in the paper tray for long periods of time. Dust and dirt may accumulate on
them, resulting in spotty printing.
To avoid smudging caused by fingerprints, handle them carefully.
To avoid fading, do not expose printed transparencies to prolonged sunlight.
Ensure that transparencies are not wrinkled, curled, or have any torn edges.
Do not use transparencies that separates from the backing sheet.
To prevent transparencies from sticking to each other, do not let the printed sheets stack up as they are being
printed out.
Labels
To avoid damaging the machine, use only labels designed for use in laser machines.
When selecting labels, consider the following factors:
Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at your machine’s fusing temperature about 170 °C (338
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
°F).
Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing between them. Labels can peel off sheets that have
spaces between the labels, causing serious jams.
Curl: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no more than 13 mm of curl in any direction.
Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other indications of separation.
Make sure that there is no exposed adhesive material between labels. 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 run a sheet of labels through the machine more than once. The adhesive backing is designed for only a
single pass through the machine.
Do not use labels that are separating from the backing sheet or are wrinkled, bubbled, or otherwise damaged.
Card stock/Custom-sized paper
Postcards, cards, and other custom-sized materials can be printed with this machine.
Do not print on media smaller than 76 mm (3.00 inches) wide or 127 mm (5.00 inches) long.
In the software application, set margins at least 6.4 mm (0.25 inches) away from the edges of the material.
If media weight is over 160 g/m 2 (43 lb), try printing in the rear cover (face up).
Letterhead/ Preprinted paper
Single-sided
Tray1
Manual tray
Face down
Double-sided
Face up
Face up
Face down
Letterhead/ Preprinted paper must be printed with heat-resistant ink that will not melt, vaporize, or release
hazardous emissions when subjected to the machine’s fusing temperature for 0.1 second. Check your machine’s
specification to view the fusing temperature about 170°C(338 °F).
Letterhead/ Preprinted paper ink must be non-flammable and should not adversely affect machine rollers.
Forms and letterhead should be sealed in a moisture-proof wrapping to prevent changes during storage.
Before you load letterhead/preprinted paper, verify that the ink on the paper is dry. During the fusing process,
wet ink can come off preprinted paper, reducing print quality.
Photo
Make sure not to use the inkjet photo paper with this machine. It could cause damage to the machine.
Glossy
Load one paper to the manual tray at a time, glossy side facing up.

Using this Network Configuration Report, you can find your machine MAC address and IP address.
For example:
MAC Address:00:15:99:41:A2:78
IP Address:192.0.0.192
Setting IP address
First, you have to set up an IP address for network printing and managements. In most cases a new IP address will
be automatically assigned by a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server located on the network.
In a few situations the IP address must be set manually. This is called a static IP and is often required in corporate
Intranets for security reasons.
DHCP IP assignment: Connect your machine to the network, and wait a few minutes for the DHCP server to
assign an IP address to the machine. Then, print the Network Configuration Report as explained above. If the
report shows that the IP address has changed, the assignment was successful. You will see the new IP address in
the report.
Static IP assignment: Use SetIP program to change the IP address from your computer. If your machine has a
control panel, you can also change IP address using the machine's control panel.
In an office environment, we recommend that you contact a network administrator to set this address for you.

Printing quality problems
If the inside of the machine is dirty or paper has been loaded improperly, there might be a reduction in print quality.
See the table below to clear the problem.
Condition
Light or faded print
Suggested Solutions
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). If this does not improve the print quality, install
a new toner cartridge.
The paper may not meet paper specifications; for example, the paper may
be too moist or rough (See Print media specifications ).
If the entire page is light, the print resolution setting is too low or the toner
save mode is on. Adjust the print resolution and turn the toner save mode
off. See the help screen of the printer driver.
A combination of faded or smeared defects may indicate that the toner
cartridge needs cleaning (See Cleaning the inside).
The surface of the LSU part inside the machine may be dirty (See Cleaning
the inside).
Toner specks
The paper may not meet specifications; for example, the paper may be too
moist or rough (See Print media specifications ).
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
The transfer roller may be dirty. Clean the inside of your machine. Contact a
service representative.
The paper path may need cleaning. Contact a service representative.
Dropouts
If faded areas, generally rounded, occur randomly on the page:
A single sheet of paper may be defective. Try reprinting the job.
The moisture content of the paper is uneven or the paper has moist spots
on its surface. Try a different brand of paper (See Print media specifications
).
The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing processes can cause some areas to
reject toner. Try a different kind or brand of paper.
Change the printer option and try again. Go to Printing Preferences, click
Paper tab, and set type to Thick (See Opening printing preferences).
If these steps do not correct the problem, contact a service representative.
White Spots
If white spots appear on the page:
The paper is too rough and a lot of dirt from a paper falls to the inner
devices within the machine, so the transfer roller may be dirty. Clean the
inside of your machine (See Cleaning the inside).
The paper path may need cleaning (See Cleaning the inside).
Vertical lines
If black vertical streaks appear on the page:
The surface (drum part) of the toner cartridge inside the machine has
probably been scratched. Remove the toner cartridge and install a new one
(See Replacing the toner cartridge).
If white vertical streaks appear on the page:
The surface of the LSU part inside the machine may be dirty (See Cleaning
the inside).
Black background
If the amount of background shading becomes unacceptable:
Change to a lighter weight paper (See Print media specifications ).
Check the environmental conditions: very dry conditions or a high level of
humidity (higher than 80% RH) can increase the amount of background
shading.
Remove the old toner cartridge and, install a new one (See Replacing the
toner cartridge).
Toner smear
If toner smears on the page:
Clean the inside of the machine (See Cleaning the inside).
Check the paper type and quality (See Print media specifications ).
Remove the toner cartridge and then, install a new one (See Replacing the
toner cartridge).
Vertical repetitive defects
If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of the page at even intervals:
The toner cartridge may be damaged. If you still have the same problem,
remove the toner cartridge and, install a new one (See Replacing the toner
cartridge).
Parts of the machine may have toner on them. If the defects occur on the
back of the page, the problem will likely correct itself after a few more
pages.
The fusing assembly may be damaged. Contact a service representative.
Background scatter
Background scatter results from bits of toner randomly 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.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
If background scatter covers the entire surface area of a printed page,
adjust the print resolution through your software application or in Printing
Preferences (See Opening printing preferences).
Misformed characters
If characters are improperly formed and producing hollow images, the paper
stock may be too slick. Try different paper (See Print media specifications ).
If characters are improperly formed and producing a wavy effect, the
scanner unit may need service (See Cleaning the scan unit).
Page skew
Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
Check the paper type and quality (See Print media specifications ).
Ensure that the guides are not too tight or too loose against the paper stack.
Curl or wave

Remove the toner cartridge and then, install a new one (See Replacing the
toner cartridge).
If the problem persists, the machine may require repair. Contact a service
representative.
Character Voids
Character voids are white areas within parts of characters that should be solid
black:
If you are using transparencies, try another type of transparency. Because of
the composition of transparencies, some character voids are normal.
You may be printing on the wrong surface of the paper. Remove the paper
and turn it around.
The paper may not meet paper specifications (See Print media specifications
).
Horizontal stripes
If horizontally aligned black streaks or smears appear:
The toner cartridge may be installed improperly. Remove the cartridge and

reinsert it.
The toner cartridge may be defective. Remove the toner cartridge and install
a new one (See Replacing the toner cartridge).
If the problem persists, the machine may require repair. Contact a service
representative.
Curl
If the printed paper is curled or paper does not feed into the machine:
Turn the stack of paper over in the tray. Also try rotating the paper 180° in
the tray.
Change the printer option and try again. Go to Printing Preferences, click
Paper tab, and set type to Thin (See Opening printing preferences).
An unknown image repetitively
appears on a few sheets or loose
toner, light print, or
contamination occurs.
Your machine is probably being used at an altitude of 1,000 m (3,281 ft.) or
above.The high altitude may affect the print quality, such as loose toner or light
imaging. Change the correct altitude setting to your machine (See Altitude
adjustment).
Copying problems
Condition
Suggested solution
Copies are too light or too dark.
Use Darkness in Copy feature to lighten or darken the backgrounds of
copies (See Changing the darkness).
Smears, lines, marks, or spots
appear on copies.
If the defects are on the original, use Darkness in Copy feature to
lighten the background of your copies (See Changing the darkness).
If there are no defects on the original, clean the scan unit (See Cleaning
the scan unit).
Copy image is skewed.
Ensure that the original is face down on the scanner glass or face up in
the document feeder.
Check that the copy paper is loaded correctly.
Blank copies print out.
Ensure that the original is face down on the scanner glass or face up in the
document feeder.
Image rubs off the copy easily.
Replace the paper in the tray with paper from a new package.
In high humidity areas, do not leave paper in the machine for extended
periods of time.
Frequent copy paper jams occur.
Fan the stack of paper, then turn it over in the tray. Replace the paper in
the tray with a fresh supply. Check/adjust the paper guides, if necessary.
Ensure that the paper is the proper paper weight.
Check for copy paper or pieces of copy paper remaining in the machine
after a paper jam has been cleared.
Toner cartridge produces fewer
copies than expected before running
out of toner.
Your originals may contain pictures, solids, or heavy lines. For example,
your originals may be forms, newsletters, books, or other documents that
use more toner.
The scanner lid may be left open while copies are being made.

Suggested solutions
Check if the printer driver is installed in your system. Open Unified Driver Configurator and switch
to the Printers tab in Printers configuration window to look at the list of available machines.
Make sure that your machine is displayed on the list. If not, open Add new printer wizard to set
up your device.
Check if the machine 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, press the Start button. After that normal operation of the machine should be restored. The
“stopped” status might be activated when some problems in printing occurred. For instance, this
could be an attempt to print a document when the port is claimed by a scanning application.
Ensure the port is not busy. Since functional components of machine (printer and scanner) share
the same I/O interface (port), the situation of simultaneous access of different user applications to
the same port is possible. To avoid possible conflicts, only one of them at a time is allowed to gain
control over the device. The other user will encounter “device busy” response. You should open
ports configuration and select the port assigned to your machine. In the Selected port pane you
can see if the port is occupied by some other application. If this is the case, you should either wait
for completion of the current job or press the Release port button, if you are sure that the present
application 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.

Glossary
The following glossary helps you get familiar with the product by understanding the terminologies commonly used
with printing as well as mentioned in this user’s guide.
802.11
802.11 is a set of standards for wireless local area network (WLAN) communication, developed by the IEEE
LAN/MAN Standards Committee (IEEE 802).
802.11b/g
802.11b/g can share the same hardware and use the 2.4 GHz band. 802.11b supports bandwidth up to 11 Mbps;
802.11g up to 54 Mbps. 802.11b/g devices may occasionally suffer interference from microwave ovens, cordless
telephones, and Bluetooth devices.
Access point
Access Point or Wireless Access Point (AP or WAP) is a device that connects wireless communication devices
together on wireless local area networks (WLAN), and acts as a central transmitter and receiver of WLAN radio
signals.
ADF
An Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is a mechanism that will automatically feed an original sheet of paper so
that the machine can scan some amount of the paper at once.
AppleTalk
AppleTalk is a proprietary suite of protocols developed by Apple, Inc for computer networking. It was included in
the original Macintosh (1984) and is now deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP networking.
BIT Depth
A computer graphics term describing the number of bits used to represent the color of a single pixel in a
bitmapped image. Higher color depth gives a broader range of distinct colors. As the number of bits increases, the
number of possible colors becomes impractically large for a color map. 1-bit color is commonly called as
monochrome or black and white.
BMP
A bitmapped graphics format used internally by the Microsoft Windows graphics subsystem (GDI), and used
commonly as a simple graphics file format on that platform.
BOOTP
Bootstrap Protocol. A network protocol used by a network client to obtain its IP address automatically. This is
usually done in the bootstrap process of computers or operating systems running on them. The BOOTP servers
assign the IP address from a pool of addresses to each client. BOOTP enables 'diskless workstation' computers to
obtain an IP address prior to loading any advanced operating system.
CCD
Charge Coupled Device (CCD) is a hardware which enables the scan job. CCD Locking mechanism is also used to
hold the CCD module to prevent any damage when you move the machine.
Collation
Collation is a process of printing a multiple-copy job in sets. When collation is selected, the device prints an entire
set before printing additional copies.
Control Panel
A control panel is a flat, typically vertical, area where control or monitoring instruments are displayed. They are
typically found in front of the machine.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
Coverage
It is the printing term used for a toner usage measurement on printing. For example, 5% coverage means that an
A4 sided paper has about 5% image or text on it. So, if the paper or original has complicated images or lots of
text on it, the coverage will be higher and at the same time, a toner usage will be as much as the coverage.
CSV
Comma Separated Values (CSV). A type of file format, CSV is used to exchange data between disparate
applications. The file format, as it is used in Microsoft Excel, has become a pseudo standard throughout the
industry, even among non-Microsoft platforms.
DADF
A Duplex Automatic Document Feeder (DADF) is a mechanism that will automatically feed and flip over an original
sheet of paper so that the machine can scan on both sides of the paper.
Default
The value or setting that is in effect when taking a printer out of its box state, reset, or initialized.
DHCP
A Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a client-server networking protocol. A DHCP server provides
configuration parameters specific to the DHCP client host requesting, generally, information required by the client
host to participate on an IP network. DHCP also provides a mechanism for allocation of IP addresses to client
hosts.
DIMM
Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM), a small circuit board that holds memory. DIMM stores all the data within the
machine like printing data, received fax data.
DNS
The Domain Name Server (DNS) is a system that stores information associated with domain names in a
distributed database on networks, such as the Internet.
Dot Matrix Printer
A dot matrix printer refers to a type of computer printer with a print head that runs back and forth on the page
and prints by impact, striking an ink-soaked cloth ribbon against the paper, much like a typewriter.
DPI
Dots Per Inch (DPI) is a measurement of resolution that is used for scanning and printing. Generally, higher DPI
results in a higher resolution, more visible detail in the image, and a larger file size.
DRPD
Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection. Distinctive Ring is a telephone company service which enables a user to use a
single telephone line to answer several different telephone numbers.
Duplex
A mechanism that will automatically flip over a sheet of paper so that the machine can print (or scan) on both
sides of the paper. A printer equipped with a Duplex can print double-sided of paper.
Duty Cycle
Duty cycle is the page quantity which does not affect printer performance for a month. Generally the printer has
the lifespan limitation such as pages per year. The lifespan means the average capacity of print-outs, usually
within the warranty period. For example, if the duty cycle is 48,000 pages per month assuming 20 working days,
a printer limits 2,400 pages a day.
ECM
Error Correction Mode (ECM) is an optional transmission mode built into Class 1 fax machines or fax modems. It
automatically detects and corrects errors in the fax transmission process that are sometimes caused by telephone
line noise.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
Emulation
Emulation is a technique of one machine obtaining the same results as another.
An emulator duplicates the functions of one system with a different system, so that the second system behaves
like the first system. Emulation focuses on exact reproduction of external behavior, which is in contrast to
simulation, which concerns an abstract model of the system being simulated, often considering its internal state.
Ethernet
