Storing Print Media
Identifying Print Media Sources and Specifications
Print media is 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 the standard 250-sheet tray or optional 250-sheet feeder.
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 Standard
250-Sheet Tray and Optional 250-Sheet Feeder" and "Loading the Single Sheet Feeder" 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
The standard 250-sheet tray automatically feeds paper weights from 60 to 216 g/m2 (16 to 80 lb bond) grain long. The single sheet feeder automatically feeds
paper weights from 60 to 216 g/m2 (16 to 80 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.
NOTE: The optional 250-sheet feeder automatically feeds paper weights from 60 to 105 g/m2 (16 to 80 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 unwrapped, even in the paper tray, 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 single sheet feeder.
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.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
Recommended Paper
To ensure the best print quality and feed reliability, use 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.
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:
l
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
l
Preprinted paper with chemicals that may contaminate the printer
l
Preprinted paper that can be affected by the temperature in the fuser
l
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.
l
Coated paper (erasable bond), synthetic paper, thermal paper
l
Rough-edged, rough or heavily textured surface paper, or curled paper
l
Recycled paper containing more than 25% post-consumer waste that do not meet DIN 19 309
l
Multiple-part forms or documents
l
Print quality may deteriorate (blank spaces or blotches may appear in the text) when printing on talc or acid paper.
Selecting Paper
Proper paper selection helps prevent jams and ensures trouble-free printing.
To help avoid jams or poor print quality:
l
Always use new, undamaged paper.
l
Before loading the paper, identify the recommended print side of the paper. This information is usually indicated on the paper package.
l
Do not use paper that you have cut or trimmed yourself.
l
Do not mix print media sizes, weights, or types in the same source. This may result in a paper jam.
l
Do not remove the tray while a job is printing.
l
Ensure that the paper is properly loaded in the tray.
l
Flex paper back and forth, and then fan them. Straighten the edges of the stack on a level surface.
Selecting Preprinted Form and Letterhead
When selecting preprinted forms and letterhead paper for the printer:
l
Use grain long paper for best results.
l
Use only forms and letterhead printed using an offset lithographic or engraved printing process.
l
Select paper that absorb ink, but do not bleed.
l
Avoid paper with rough or heavily textured surfaces.
l
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.
l
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.
Page orientation is important when printing on letterhead. Use the following table for help when loading letterhead in the print media sources.
Print media source
Print side
Page orientation
Face up
Standard 250-Sheet Tray
Letterhead enters the printer last
Optional 250-Sheet Feeder
Face down

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:
l
Test paper from several manufacturers before ordering and using large quantities of pre-punched paper.
l
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.
l
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.
l
Weight guidelines for pre-punched paper are the same as non-punched 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 Standard 250-Sheet Tray and Optional 250-Sheet Feeder" or "Loading the Single
Sheet Feeder" for instructions on loading an envelope.
When printing on envelopes:
l
Use only high-quality envelopes that are designed for use in laser printers.
l
Set the print media source to the single sheet feeder or standard 250-sheet tray. Set the paper type to Envelope, and select the correct size of
envelope from the printer driver.
l
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.
l
Use only freshly unpackaged, undamaged envelopes.
l
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.
l
Adjust the guide to fit the width of the envelopes.
l
To load envelope in the single sheet feeder, insert the envelope with the flaps closed and the short-edge of the envelope facing into the printer. The
print side must be facing down.
l
See "Loading Print Media in the Standard 250-Sheet Tray and Optional 250-Sheet Feeder" or "Loading the Single Sheet Feeder" for instructions on
loading an envelope.
l
Use one envelope size during a print job.
l
Ensure the humidity is low because high humidity (more than 60%) and the high printing temperatures may seal the envelopes.
l
For best performance, do not use envelopes that:
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
¡
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 any exposed adhesive when the flap is in the sealed or closed position
¡
Have nicked edges or bent corners
¡
Have rough, cockle, or laid finishes
Labels
Your printer can print on many labels designed for use with laser printers. 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). Before buying large quantities of any print media, it is recommended that you try a sample first.
When printing on labels:
l
Set the paper type to Label from the printer driver.
l
Do not load labels together with paper in the same tray. This may result in a jam.
l
Do not use label sheets with a slick backing material.
l
Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 inches) of the die cut.
l
Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam. Partial sheets also contaminate your printer and your
cartridge with adhesive, and could void your printer and cartridge warranties.
l
Use labels that can withstand temperatures of 205°C (401°F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.
l
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.
l
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 the edges. Adhesive material contaminates your printer and could void your warranty.
l
If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, a 3 mm (0.125 inches) strip should be removed on the leading and driver edge, and a non-oozing
adhesive should be used.
l
Remove a 3 mm (0.125 inches) strip from the leading edge to prevent labels from peeling inside the printer.
l
Portrait orientation is preferred, especially when printing bar codes.
l
Do not use labels that have exposed adhesive.
Storing Print Media
For proper print media storage, the following guidelines help avoid media feeding problems and uneven print quality.
l
For best results, store print media in an environment where the temperature is approximately 21°C (70°F) and the relative humidity is 40%.
l
Store cartons of print media on a pallet or shelf, rather than directly on the floor.
l
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.
l
Do not place anything on top of the print media packages.

Monarch or DL
The Monarch or DL envelopes can be loaded in one of the following ways:
Load the envelopes short edge feed with the flaps closed and the print side up. Ensure that the flaps come at the right when you face towards the printer.
OR
Load the envelopes long edge feed (LEF) with the flaps open and the print side up. Ensure that the flaps come at the top when you face towards the printer.
C5
Load the envelopes short edge feed with the flaps closed and the print side up. Ensure that the flaps come at the bottom when you face towards the printer.
Linking Trays
Tray linking allows you to load the same size and type of print media in the standard 250-sheet tray and optional 250-sheet feeder. The printer automatically
links the trays and will use the first tray until it runs out of media, then switch to the linked tray.
If you load the same size print media in each tray, ensure that the type of media is same.
When the selected trays are loaded with the same size and type of print media, select the Paper Type settings in the Tray Settings for each source.
To disable tray linking, set the Paper Type to a unique value in each one of the trays. If all trays do not have the same type of print media when linked, you
could mistakenly print a job on the wrong paper type.
NOTE: If the paper type is not specified in the printer driver, the printer automatically links the trays (even if there are different types of print media
loaded in them).

Using the Print and Hold Function
When you send a job to the printer, you can specify in the driver that you want the printer to hold the job in memory. When you are ready to print the job, you
must go to the printer and use the operator panel menus to identify which job in the memory you want to print. You can use this function to print a confidential
job (Secure Print), or verify one copy before printing additional copies (Proof Print).
NOTE: The printer holds the job until you delete it by using the operator panel or you turn off the printer. The data on memory is cleared when the
printer is turned off.
NOTE: Print and Hold functions require a minimum of 768 MB available printer memory. Also, you need to configure the RAM disk settings on the operator
panel and the printer driver.
NOTE: Depending on the documents, its job may be too big for the available memory. If a print job is too big for the available memory, an error occurs.
NOTE: If a document name is not assigned to your print job in the printer driver, the job's name will be identified using the PC's time and date of
submission to distinguish it from other jobs you have stored under your name.
Printing and Deleting Held Jobs
Once held jobs are stored in print memory, you can use the operator panel to specify what you want to do with one or more of the jobs. You can select either
Secure Print or Proof Print from "Stored Print". Then, you select your user name from a list. If you select Secure Print, you must type the password you
specified in the driver when you sent the job. See "Secure Print" for more information.

NOTE: The printer holds the job until you delete it by using the operator panel or you turn off the printer.
NOTICE: When you select Del after Print, the held job is automatically deleted after printing.
Proof Print
If you send a Proof Print job, the printer prints one copy and holds the remaining copies you requested from the driver in print memory. Use Proof Print
function to examine the first copy to see if it is satisfactory before printing the remaining copies.
See "Printing and Deleting Held Jobs" if you need help printing the additional copies stored in memory.
NOTE: The printer holds the job until you delete it by using the operator panel or you turn off the printer. The data on memory is cleared when the
printer is turned off.
NOTICE: When you select Del after Print, the held job is automatically deleted after printing.
Secure Print
When you send a job to the printer, you can specify a password from the driver. The password must be between 0 and 12 digits using numbers 0-9. The job is
then held in print memory until you enter the same numeric password from the operator panel and choose to print or delete the job. This function is called
"Stored Print". This ensures that the job does not print until you are there to retrieve it, and no one else using the printer can print the job.
When you select Secure Print from Stored Print after selecting your user name, the following prompt is displayed:
[************]

Setting Up for Shared Printing
Point and Print
Peer-to-Peer
You can share your new printer on the network using the Drivers and Utilities CD that shipped with your printer, or using Microsoft® point and print or peer-topeer method. However, if you use one of the Microsoft methods, you will not have all the features, such as the status monitor and other printer utilities, that
are installed with the Drivers and Utilities CD.
To share a locally-attached printer on the network, you need to share the printer, and then install the shared printer on network clients:
NOTE: The following are options you need to buy separately for shared printing.

Typefaces and Fonts
A font is a set of characters and symbols created with a distinct design. The distinct design is called a typeface. The typefaces you select add personality to a
document. Well-chosen typefaces make a document easier to read.
The printer has numerous resident fonts in PCL 5/PCL 6. See "Resident Fonts" for a listing of all resident fonts.
Weight and Style
Typefaces are often available in different weights and styles. These variations modify the original typeface so you can, for example, emphasize important
words in text or highlight book titles. The different weights and styles are designed to complement the original typeface.
Weight refers to the thickness of the lines that form the characters. Thicker lines result in darker characters. Some words commonly used to describe the
weight of a typeface are bold, medium, light, black, and heavy.
Style refers to other typeface modifications, such as tilt or character width. Italic and oblique are styles where the characters are tilted. Narrow, condensed,
and extended are three common styles that modify the character widths.
Some fonts combine several weight and style modifications; for example, Helvetica BdOb. A group of several weight and style variations of a single typeface is
called a typeface family. Most typeface families have four variations: regular, italic (oblique), bold, and bold italic (bold oblique). Some families have more
variations, as the following illustration for the Helvetica typeface family shows:
Pitch and Point Size
The size of a font is specified as either a pitch or point size, depending on whether the font is fixed space or proportional.
In fixed space fonts, each character has the same width. Pitch is used to specify the size of fixed space fonts. It is a measure of the number of characters that
will print in one horizontal inch of type. For example, all 10-pitch fonts print 10 characters per inch (cpi) and all 12-pitch fonts print 12 cpi:
In proportional (or typographic) fonts, every character can have a different width. Since proportional fonts have characters with different widths, the font size is
specified in point size, not pitch. Point size refers to the height of the characters in the font. A point is defined as 1/72 inch. The characters in a font printed at
24 point will be twice as large as the characters in the same font printed at 12 point.
The following illustration shows samples of a font printed in different point sizes:
The point size of a font is defined as the distance from the top of the tallest character in the font to the bottom of the lowest character in the font. Due to the
definition of point size, different fonts printed at the same point size may appear quite different in size. This is because there are other font parameters that
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
affect how the font looks. However, the point size of a font is an excellent specification of the relative size of a font. The following examples illustrate two very
different proportional fonts at 14 point:
Bitmapped and Scalable Fonts
The printer uses both bitmapped and scalable fonts.
Bitmapped fonts are stored in print memory as predefined patterns of bits that represent a typeface at a specific size, style, and resolution. The following
illustration shows an example of a character from a bitmapped font.
Bitmapped fonts are available in different type styles and point sizes as downloadable fonts.
Scalable fonts (also called outline fonts) are stored as computer programs that define the outlines of the characters in the font. Each time you print characters
from a scalable font, the printer creates a bitmap of the characters at the point size you choose and saves it temporarily in print memory.
These temporary bitmapped fonts are deleted when you turn off or reset the printer. Scalable fonts provide the flexibility of printing in many different point
sizes.
Your printer uses different scalable font formats for downloading fonts to the printer. PCL 5/PCL 6 uses Intellifont and TrueType scalable fonts. There are
thousands of different scalable fonts available in these different font formats from numerous font suppliers.
If you plan to use many downloadable bitmapped or scalable fonts or if you plan to use many different sizes of scalable fonts, you may need to purchase
additional memory for your printer.
Resident Fonts
Your printer is equipped with resident fonts stored permanently in print memory. Different fonts are available in PCL 5/PCL 6. Some of the most popular
typefaces, like Courier and TimesNew, are available for all printer languages.
The following table lists all the fonts resident in your printer. See "Printing a Font Sample List" for instructions on how to print samples of the fonts. You can
select the resident fonts from your software program or from the operator panel.

Symbol Sets
A symbol set is the collection of alphabetic and numeric characters, punctuation, and special characters available in the font you select. Symbol sets support
the requirements for different languages or specific applications, such as math symbols used for scientific text.
In PCL 5/PCL 6, a symbol set also defines which character will print for each key on the keyboard (or more specifically, for each code point). Some applications
require different characters at some code points. To support multiple applications and languages, your printer has 36 symbol sets for the resident PCL 5/PCL 6
fonts.

Careful selection of appropriate print media and proper loading allow you to avoid most jams. See "Print Media Guidelines" for more information.
NOTE: Before buying large quantities of any print media, it is recommended that you try a sample first.
Avoiding Jams
l
Use only recommended print media. See "Print Media Guidelines" for more information.
l
See "Loading Print Media in the Standard 250-Sheet Tray and Optional 250-Sheet Feeder" and "Loading the Single Sheet Feeder" to load print media
properly.
l
Do not overload the print media sources. Ensure that the stack print media height does not exceed the maximum height indicated by the load line
labels in the tray.
l
Do not load wrinkled, creased, damp, or curled print media.
l
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 single sheet
feeder.
l
Do not use print media that you have cut or trimmed yourself.
l
Do not mix print media sizes, weights, or types in the same print media source.
l
Ensure that the recommended print side is face up when you insert the print media. Also, the recommended print side should be face down when using
the single sheet feeder.
l
Keep print media stored in an acceptable environment. For more information, see "Storing Print Media".
l
Do not remove the feeding tray during a print job.
l
Push the tray in firmly after loading.
l
Ensure that all cables that connect to the printer are correctly attached.
l
Overtightening the guides may cause jams.
l
Wipe the retard rollers in the tray or single sheet feeder with a cloth that is slightly dampened with water if jams caused by misfeeding paper occur
frequently.

(Y, M, and C). If you find the straightest line, make a note of the value (-9 - +9) indicated by the straightest line for each color.
When the value is 0 for each color, you do not need to adjust the color registration for the fast scan.
When the value is not 0, enter the value using the procedure in "Entering Values"".

Dell technical phone support only supports factory-installed operating systems (Microsoft) for the first 30 days for free. See
http://www1.us.dell.com/content/products/compare.aspx/laser?c=us&cs=555&l=en&s=biz for more details. The customer will have to purchase
technical support from the manufacturer of the operating system in order to get technical assistance beyond 30 days.

If the customer has other operating systems and has purchased Gold Technical Support (for more information on Gold Technical Support, see
http://www1.us.dell.com/content/topics/global.aspx/services/en/gts?c=us&cs=555&l=en&s=biz), the telephone support will be a "best effort"
attempt to resolve the operating system issue. If the manufacturer needs to be contacted, the customer must pay an additional fee for that support. The only
time that Dell pays for the third party support is when Dell is responsible for the issue. In the case of getting the printer installed and working, this is
configuration and the customer would be responsible for paying.
