Setting the IP Address
Assigning an IP Address (for IPv4 mode)
NOTE: When you assign an IP address manually in IPv6 mode, use the Dell Printer
Configuration Web Tool. To open the Dell Printer Configuration Web Tool, use the
link local address. To check a link local address, see "Printing and Checking the

normally done by a system administrator.
NOTE: Depending on the address class, the range of the IP address assigned may
be different. On Class A, for example, an IP address in the range from 0.0.0.0 to
127.255.255.255 will be assigned. For assignment of IP addresses, contact your
system administrator.
You can assign the IP address by using the operator panel or using the tool

Print Media Guidelines
11
Print media can be paper, labels, envelopes, and coated paper among others.
Your printer provides high-quality printing on a variety of print media.
Selecting the appropriate print media for your printer helps avoid printing
troubles. This section describes selecting print media, caring for print media,
and loading the print media in Multipurpose Feeder (MPF) or Priority Sheet
Inserter (PSI).
Paper
For the best print quality in color, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb) xerographic, grain long
paper. For the best print quality in black and white, use 90 g/m2 (24 lb)
xerographic, grain long paper. Before buying large quantities of any print
media, it is recommended that you try a sample first.
When loading paper, identify the recommended print side on the paper
package, and load the paper accordingly. See "Loading Print Media in the
Multipurpose Feeder (MPF)" on page 45 and "Loading Print Media in the
Priority Sheet Inserter (PSI)" on page 50 for detailed loading instructions.
Paper Characteristics
The following paper characteristics affect print quality and reliability. It is
recommended that you follow these guidelines when evaluating new paper
stock.
Weight
Both MPF and PSI automatically feed paper whose weights range from 60 to
163 g/m2 (16 to 44 lb bond) grain long. Paper lighter than 60 g/m2 (16 lb) may
not feed properly, and could cause paper jams. For best performance, use 75 g/
m2 (20 lb bond) grain long paper.
Curl
Curl is the tendency of print media to curve at its edges. Excessive curl can
cause paper feeding problems. Curl usually occurs after the paper passes
through the printer, where it is exposed to high temperatures. Storing paper
Print Media Guidelines
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
155
unwrapped, even in the paper feeder, can contribute to paper curling prior to
printing and cause feeding problems regardless of humidity. When printing
on curled paper, straighten the paper and then insert it into the MPF or PSI.
Smoothness
The degree of paper smoothness directly affects print quality. If the paper is
too rough, the toner does not fuse to the paper properly, resulting in poor
print quality. If the paper is too smooth, it can cause paper feeding problems.
Smoothness between 150 and 250 Sheffield points produces the best print
quality.
Moisture Content
The amount of moisture in the paper affects both print quality and the ability
of the printer to feed the paper properly. Leave the paper in its original
packaging until you are ready to use it. This limits the exposure of the paper
to moisture changes that can degrade its performance.
Grain Direction
Grain refers to the alignment of the paper fibers in a sheet of paper. Grain is
either grain long, running the length of the paper, or grain short, running the
width of the paper. For 60 to 135 g/m2 (16 to 36 lb bond) paper, grain long
fibers are recommended. For paper heavier than 135 g/m2 (36 lb bond), grain
short is preferred.
Fiber Content
Most high-quality xerographic paper is made from 100% chemically pulped
wood. Paper containing fibers such as cotton possess characteristics that can
result in degraded paper handling.
Recommended Paper
To ensure the best print quality and feed reliability, use dry 75 g/m2 (20 lb)
xerographic paper. Business paper designed for general business use also
provide acceptable print quality. Only use paper able to withstand high
temperatures without discoloring, bleeding, or releasing hazardous emissions.
The laser printing process heats paper to high temperatures. Check with the
manufacturer or vendor to determine whether the paper you have chosen is
acceptable for laser printers.
156
Print Media Guidelines
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
NOTE: Always print several samples before buying large quantities of any type of
print media. When choosing any print media, you should consider the weight, fiber
content, and color.
Unacceptable Paper
The following paper types are not recommended for use with the printer:
•
Chemically treated paper used to make copies without carbon paper, also
known as carbonless paper, carbonless copy paper (CCP), or no carbon
required (NCR) paper
•
Preprinted paper with chemicals that may contaminate the printer
•
Preprinted paper that can be affected by the temperature in the fuser
•
Preprinted paper that require a registration (the precise print location on
the page) greater than ±0.09 inches, such as optical character recognition
(OCR) forms
In some cases, you can adjust registration with your software program to
successfully print on these forms.
•
Coated paper (erasable bond), synthetic paper, thermal paper
•
Rough-edged, rough or heavily textured surface paper, or curled paper
•
Recycled paper containing more than 25% post-consumer waste that do
not meet DIN 19 309
•
Multiple-part forms or documents
•
Print quality may deteriorate (blank spaces or blotches may appear in the
text) when printing on talc or acid paper.
•
Moist paper that may cause wrinkle
Selecting Paper
Proper paper selection helps prevent jams and ensures trouble-free printing.
To help avoid jams or poor print quality:
•
Always use new, dry, and undamaged paper.
•
Before loading the paper, identify the recommended print side of the
paper. This information is usually indicated on the paper package.
•
Do not use paper that you have cut or trimmed yourself.
Print Media Guidelines
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
157
•
Do not mix print media sizes, weights, or types in the same source. This
may result in a paper jam.
•
Do not remove the PSI while a job is printing.
•
Ensure that the paper is properly loaded in the MPF or PSI.
•
Flex paper back and forth, and then fan them. Straighten the edges of the
stack on a level surface.
Selecting Preprinted Media and Letterhead
When selecting preprinted media and letterhead paper for the printer:
•
Use grain long paper for best results.
•
Use only forms and letterhead printed using an offset lithographic or
engraved printing process.
•
Select paper that absorb ink, but do not bleed.
•
Avoid paper with rough or heavily textured surfaces.
•
Use paper printed with heat-resistant inks designed for use in xerographic
copiers. The ink must withstand temperatures of 225°C (437°F) without
melting or releasing hazardous emissions.
•
Use inks that are not affected by the resin in toner or the silicone in the
fuser. Inks that are oxidation-set or oil-based should meet these
requirements; latex inks might not. If you are in doubt, contact your paper
supplier.
Printing on Letterhead
Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine whether the pre-printed
letterhead you have selected is acceptable for laser printers.
158
Print Media Guidelines
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
Page orientation is important when printing on letterhead. Use the following
table for help when loading letterhead in the print media sources.
Loading Letterhead
Load the letterhead in the printer with the print side facing up. Ensure that
the title on the letter head enters the printer first.

Selecting Pre-Punched Paper
Pre-punched paper brands can differ in the number and placement of holes
and in manufacturing techniques. However, it may not be possible to print on
the paper to depending on the placement of holes on the paper.
To select and use pre-punched paper:
•
Test paper from several manufacturers before ordering and using large
quantities of pre-punched paper.
•
Paper should be punched at the paper manufacturer and not drilled into
paper already packaged in a ream. Drilled paper can cause jams when
multiple sheets feed through the printer. This may result in a paper jam.
•
Pre-punched paper can include more paper dust than standard paper. Your
printer may require more frequent cleaning and feed reliability may not be
as good as standard paper.

Envelopes
Depending on the choice of envelopes, it is possible to expect variable levels
of light wrinkling. Before buying large quantities of any print media, it is
recommended that you try a sample first. See "Loading Print Media in the
Multipurpose Feeder (MPF)" on page 166 or "Loading Print Media in the
Priority Sheet Inserter (PSI)" on page 173 for instructions on loading an
envelope.
When printing on envelopes:
•
Use only high-quality envelopes that are designed for use in laser printers.
•
Set the print media source to MPF or PSI. Set the paper type to Envelope,
and select the correct size of envelope from the printer driver.
•
For best performance, use envelopes made from 75 g/m2 (20 lb bond)
paper. You can use up to 105 g/m2 (28 lb bond) weight for the envelope
feeder as long as the cotton content is 25% or less. Envelopes with 100%
cotton content must not exceed 90 g/m2 (24 lb bond) weight.
•
Use only freshly unpackaged, undamaged envelopes.
•
Use envelopes that can withstand temperatures of 205°C (401°F) without
sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions. If
you have any doubts about the envelopes you are considering, check with
the envelope supplier.
•
Adjust the guide to fit the width of the envelopes.
•
To load envelope in MPF or PSI, the print side must be facing up.
•
See "Loading Print Media in the Multipurpose Feeder (MPF)" on page 45
or "Loading Print Media in the Priority Sheet Inserter (PSI)" on page 50
for instructions on loading an envelope.
•
Use one envelope size during a print job.
•
Ensure that the humidity is low because high humidity (more than 60%)
and the high printing temperatures may seal the envelopes.
•
For best performance, do not use envelopes that:
–
Have excessive curl or twist
–
Are stuck together or damaged in any way
–
Contain windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, embossing

–
Use metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars
–
Have an interlocking design
–
Have postage stamps attached
–
Have nicked edges or bent corners
–
Have rough, cockle, or laid finishes
Labels
Your printer can print on many labels designed only for use with laser printers.
When selecting labels:
•
Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats must be able to
withstand temperatures of 205 °C (401 °F) and pressure of 25 pounds per
square inch (psi).
•
Use labels that can be without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or
releasing hazardous emissions.
•
Do not use label sheets with a slick backing material.
NOTICE: Before buying large quantities of any print media, it is recommended that
you try a sample first.
When printing on labels:
•
Use labels that can withstand temperatures of 205 °C (401 °F) without
sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.
•
Set the paper type to Label from the printer driver.
•
Do not load labels together with paper in the same tray.
•
Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 inches) of the die-cut.
•
Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 inches) of the edge of the label, of the
perforations, or between die-cuts of the label.
•
Do not print a label through the printer more than once.
•
Portrait orientation is preferred, especially when printing bar codes.
•
Do not use labels that have exposed adhesive.
•
Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during
printing, resulting in a jam.
Print Media Guidelines
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals

•
Do not use label sheets that have adhesive to the edge of the sheet. It is
recommended that zone coating of the adhesive is done at least 1 mm
(0.04 inches) away from edges. Adhesive material contaminates your
printer and could void your warranty.
CAUTION: Otherwise the printer occur in a jam and contaminate your printer and
your cartridges with adhesive. As a result, could void your printer and cartridge
warranties.
Storing Print Media
For proper print media storage, the following guidelines help avoid media
feeding problems and uneven print quality.
•
For best results, store print media in an environment where the
temperature is approximately 21°C (70°F) and the relative humidity is
40%.
•
Store cartons of print media on a pallet or shelf, rather than directly on the
floor.
•
If you store individual packages of print media out of the original carton,
ensure that they rest on a flat surface so that the edges do not buckle or
curl.
•
Do not place anything on top of the print media packages.

Avoiding Paper Jams
NOTE: It is recommended that you try a limited sample of any print media you are
considering using with the printer before purchasing large quantities.
By selecting appropriate print media and loading it properly, you can avoid
paper jams. See the following instructions on loading print media:

*1 Enter 5 in Sleep to put the printer in the Sleep mode five minutes after it finishes a
job. This uses less energy, but requires more warm-up time for the printer. Enter 5 if
your printer shares an electrical circuit with room lighting and you notice lights
flickering.
Select a high value if your printer is in constant use. In most circumstances, this
keeps the printer ready to operate with minimum warm-up time. Select a value
between 5 and 30 minutes for the Sleep mode if you want a balance between energy
consumption and a shorter warm-up period.
The printer automatically returns to the standby mode from the Sleep mode when it

Enter 5 in Sleep to put the printer in the Sleep mode five minutes after it
finishes a job. This uses less energy, but requires more warm-up time for the
printer. Enter 5 if your printer shares an electrical circuit with room lighting
and you notice lights flickering.
Select a high value if your printer is in constant use. In most circumstances,
this keeps the printer ready to operate with minimum warm-up time. Select a
value between 5 and 30 minutes for the Sleep mode if you want a balance
between energy consumption and a shorter warm-up period.
The printer automatically returns to the standby mode from the Sleep mode
when it receives data from the computer. You can also return the printer to
the standby mode by pressing any button on the operator panel.

•
Watermarks
If you want to install the printer driver with the same settings to multiple
computers running on the same operating system, create a setup disk in a
floppy disk or in a server on the network. Using the setup disk that you have
created will reduce the amount of work required when installing the printer
driver.

Periodically, your printer requires you to complete certain tasks to maintain
optimum print quality. If several people are using the printer, you may want to
designate a key operator to maintain your printer. Refer printing problems
and maintenance tasks to this key operator.
Determining the Status of Supplies
If your printer is connected to the network, the Dell™ Printer Configuration
Web Tool can provide instant feedback on remaining toner levels. Type the IP
address of your printer in your web browser to view this information. To use
the E-Mail Alert Setup feature that notifies you when the printer requires
new supplies, type your name or the name of the key operator in the e-mail
list box.
On the operator panel, you can also confirm the following:
•
Any supply or maintenance items that require attention replacing
(However, the printer can only display information about one item at a
time).
•
Amount of toner remaining in each toner cartridge.
Conserving Supplies
You can change several settings in your printer driver to conserve toner
cartridge and paper.

Storing Print Media
To avoid potential paper feeding problems and uneven print quality, you need
to consider the following points:
•
To achieve the best possible print quality, store print media in an
environment where the temperature is approximately 21°C (70°F) and the
relative humidity is 40%.
•
Store cartons of print media on a pallet or shelf, rather than directly on the
floor.
•
If you store individual packages of print media out of the original carton,
ensure that they rest on a flat surface so the edges do not buckle or curl.
•
Do not place anything on top of the print media packages.
Storing Consumables
Store consumables in their original packaging until you need to use them. Do
not store consumables in:
•
Temperatures greater than 40°C (104°F).
•
An environment with extreme changes in humidity or temperature.
•
Direct sunlight.
•
Dusty places.

Careful selection of appropriate print media and proper loading allow you to
avoid paper jams. See "Print Media Guidelines" on page 155 for more
information.
NOTE: Before buying large quantities of any print media, it is recommended that
you try a sample first.
Avoiding Jams
•
Use only recommended print media. See "Print Media Guidelines" on
page 155 for more information.
•
See "Loading Print Media in the Multipurpose Feeder (MPF)" on page 166
and "Loading Print Media in the Priority Sheet Inserter (PSI)" on page 173

Do not overload the print media sources. Ensure that the stack print
media height does not exceed the maximum height indicated by the line
with an arrow on each width guide.
•
Do not load wrinkled, creased, damp, or curled print media.
•
Flex, fan, and straighten print media before you load it. If a jam occurs
with print media, try feeding one sheet at a time through the MPF or the
PSI.
•
Do not use print media that you have cut or trimmed yourself.
•
Do not mix print media sizes, weights, or types in the same print media
source.
•
Ensure that the recommended print side is face up when you insert the
print media.
•
Keep print media stored in an acceptable environment. For more
information, see "Storing Print Media" on page 162.
•
Do not remove the PSI during a print job.
•
Ensure that all cables that connect to the printer are correctly attached.
•
Over tightening the guides may cause jams.

Basic Printer Problems
Some printer problems can be easy to resolve. If a problem occurs with your
printer, check each of the following:
•
The power cable is connected to the printer, and to a properly grounded
electrical outlet.
•
The printer is turned on.
•
The electrical outlet is not turned off at any switch or breaker.
•
Other electrical equipment plugged into the outlet is working.
•
When your printer is connected to the network with the Ethernet cable,
the USB cable is not connected between the printer and the computer.
•
When your printer is connected to the computer with the USB cable, the
Ethernet cable is not connected between the printer and the network.
If you have checked all of the above and still have a problem, turn off the
printer, wait for 10 seconds, and then turn on the printer. This often fixes the
problem.
