Replacing the Fitted Plug (for UK Only)
Important
The mains lead for this machine is fitted with a standard (BS 1363) 13 amp
plug and has a 13 amp fuse. When you change or examine the fuse, you
must re-fit the correct 13 amp fuse. You then need to replace the fuse cover.
If you have lost the fuse cover, do not use the plug until you have another fuse
cover.
The power output of the wireless device or devices that may be embedded in
your printer is well below the RF exposure limits as known at this time.
Because the wireless devices (which may be embedded into your printer)
emit less energy than is allowed in radio frequency safety standards and
recommendations, manufacturer believes these devices are safe for use.
Regardless of the power levels, care should be taken to minimize human
contact during normal operation.
Please contact the people from you purchased the machine.
The 13 amp plug is the most widely used type in the UK and should be
suitable. However, some buildings (mainly old ones) do not have normal 13
amp plug sockets. You need to buy a suitable plug adaptor. Do not remove
the moulded plug.
As a general guideline, a separation of 20 cm (8 inches) between the wireless
device and the body, for use of a wireless device near the body (this does not
include extremities) is typical. This device should be used more than 20 cm
(8 inches) from the body when wireless devices are on and transmitting.
Warning
If you cut off the moulded plug, get rid of it straight away.
This transmitter must not be collocated or operation in conjunction with any
other antenna or transmitter.
You cannot rewire the plug and you may receive an electric shock if you
plug it into a socket.
Some circumstances require restrictions on wireless devices. Examples of
common restrictions are listed below:
Important warning: You must earth this machine.
The wires in the mains lead have the following color code:
Radio frequency wireless communication can interfere with
equipment on commercial aircraft. Current aviation
regulations require wireless devices to be turned off while
traveling in an airplane. IEEE 802.11 (also known as wireless
Ethernet) and Bluetooth communication devices are
examples of devices that provide wireless communication.
Earth
• Blue:
Neutral
• Brown:
Live
If the wires in the mains lead do not match the colors marked in your plug, do
the following:
In environments where the risk of interference to other
devices or services is harmful or perceived as harmful, the
option to use a wireless device may be restricted or
eliminated. Airports, Hospitals, and Oxygen or flammable
gas laden atmospheres are limited examples where use of
wireless devices may be restricted or eliminated. When in
environments where you are uncertain of the sanction to use
wireless devices, ask the applicable authority for
authorization prior to use or turning on the wireless device.
You must connect the green and yellow wire to the pin marked by the letter
“E” or by the safety ‘Earth symbol’ or colored green and yellow or green.
You must connect the blue wire to the pin which is marked with the letter “N”
or colored black.
You must connect the brown wire to the pin which is marked with the letter “L”
or colored red.
You must have a 13 amp fuse in the plug, adaptor, or at the distribution board.
Every country has different restrictions on the use of wireless
devices. Since your system is equipped with a wireless
device, when traveling between countries with your system,
check with the local Radio Approval authorities prior to any
move or trip for any restrictions on the use of a wireless

Selecting print media
This chapter includes:
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 printer. Print media that does not meet the
guidelines outlined in this user’s guide may cause the following
problems:
•
Selecting print media
• Poor print quality
•
Loading paper
• Increased paper jams
•
Selecting an output location
• Premature wear on the printer
This chapter will help you understand types of paper you can use with
your printer and how to properly load paper in the different paper trays
for the best print quality.
Properties, such as weight, composition, grain, and moisture content,
are important factors that affect the printer’s performance and the output
quality. When you choose print media, consider the following:
• The type, size and weight of the print media for your machine are
described later in this section.
• 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.
Notes
• 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 Samsung has no
control.
• Before purchasing large quantities of print media, ensure that
it meets the requirements specified in this user’s guide.
Caution
• Using print media that does not meet these specifications may
cause problems, requiring repairs. Such repairs are not
covered by Samsung’s warranty or service agreements.

Guidelines for selecting and storing print media
Guidelines for special print media
When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other print media, keep
these guidelines in mind:
Media type
Envelopes
• Always use print media that conform with the specifications listed on
the next column.
• Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper can cause
paper jams and poor print quality.
• For the best print quality, use only high quality copier grade paper
specifically recommended for use in laser printers.
• Avoid using the following media types:
- Paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or a texture that is too
smooth or too rough
- Erasable bond paper
- Multi-paged paper
- Synthetic paper and thermally reactive paper
- Carbonless paper and Tracing paper.
• Use of these types of paper could result in paper jams, chemical
smells, and damage to your printer.
• Store print media in its ream wrapper until you are ready to use it.
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 print media at temperatures between 15o C and 30o C
(59o F to 86o F). The relative humidity should be between 10% and
70%.
• Store unused print media in a moisture-proof wrap, such as a plastic
container or bag, to prevent dust and moisture from contaminating
your paper.
• Load special media types one sheet at a time through the multipurpose tray to avoid paper jams.
Guidelines
• Successful printing on envelopes depends
upon the quality of the envelopes. When
selecting envelopes, consider the following
factors:
- Weight: The weight of the envelope paper
should not exceed 90 g/m2 (24 lb) or jamming
may occur.
- Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes
should lie flat with less than 6 mm
(0.25 inches) 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 printer 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.
Acceptable
• To prevent print media, such as transparencies and label sheets, from
sticking together, remove them as they print out.
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 printer’s
fusing temperature of 195° C (383° 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 (0.6 inches) from the edges
of the envelope.
• Avoid printing over the area where the
envelope’s seams meet.

<Loading print media>
Media type
Guidelines
Transparencies
• To avoid damaging the printer, use only
transparencies designed for use in laser
printers.
• Transparencies used in the printer must be able
to withstand 195° C (383° F), the printer’s
fusing temperature.
• Place them on a flat surface after removing
them from the printer.
• Do not leave them 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.
Labels
• To avoid damaging the printer, use only labels
designed for use in laser printers.
• When selecting labels, consider the following
factors:
- Adhesives: The adhesive material should be
stable at 195° C (383° F), the printer’s fusing
temperature.
- 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 (5 inches) 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 printer components.
• Do not run a sheet of labels through the printer
more than once. The adhesive backing is
designed for only a single pass through the
printer.
• Do not use labels that are separating from the
backing sheet or are wrinkled, bubbled, or
otherwise damaged.
Card stock or
custom-sized
materials
Media type
Preprinted
paper
• Letterhead must be printed with heat-resistant
ink that will not melt, vaporize, or release
hazardous emissions when subjected to the
printer’s fusing temperature of 195° C (383° F)
for 0.1 second.
• Letterhead ink must be non-flammable and
should not adversely affect printer rollers.
• Forms and letterhead should be sealed in a
moisture-proof wrapping to prevent changes
during storage.
• Before you load preprinted paper, such as
forms and letterhead, verify that the ink on the
paper is dry. During the fusing process, wet ink
can come off preprinted paper, reducing print
quality.
Loading paper
Load the print media you use for the majority of your print jobs in the tray
1. The tray 1 can hold a maximum of 500 sheets of 75 g/m2 (20 lb) plain
paper.
You can purchase optional trays and attach them below the standard tray
to load an additional 500 sheets of paper for each tray. You can attach
up to three additional trays. For order information for optional trays, see
page 7.1.
The paper level indicator on the front of the tray 1 and the optional trays
shows the amount of paper currently left in the tray. When the tray is
empty, the indicator of the bar is completely lowered.
Full
• Do not print on media smaller than 76 mm
(3 inches) wide or 127 mm (5 inches) long.
• In the software application, set margins at least
6.4 mm (0.25 inches) away from the edges of
the material.

Printing a cleaning sheet
Handling instructions
If you are experiencing blurred, faded, or smeared printouts, you can
clear the problem by printing a cleaning sheet, provided by your printer.
You can print:
• 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.
• OPC cleaning sheet: cleans the OPC drum of the toner cartridge.
• Fuser cleaning sheet: cleans the fuser unit inside the printer.
Use of non-Samsung and refilled toner cartridge
This process will produce a page with toner debris, which should be
discarded.
1
Make sure that the printer is turned on with paper loaded in the tray.
2
Press Menu until System Setup appears on the bottom line of the
display and press OK.
3
Press the Scroll buttons until Maintenance appears and press
OK.
4
Press the Scroll buttons until Clean Fuser or Clean Drum appears

Samsung Electronics does not recommend or approve the use of nonSamsung brand toner cartridges in your printer including generic, store
brand, refilled, or remanufactured toner cartridges.
Caution
• Samsung’s printer warranty does not cover damage to the
machine caused by the use of a refilled, remanufactured, or
non-Samsung 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.
Your printer automatically picks up a sheet of paper from the tray
and prints out a cleaning sheet with dust or toner particles on it.
Maintaining the toner cartridge
Saving toner
Toner cartridge storage
To save toner, press Toner Save on the control panel. The button
backlight turns on.
Toner cartridges contain components that are sensitive to light,
temperature, and humidity. Samsung suggests users follow the
recommendations to ensure the optimum performance, highest quality,
and longest life from your new Samsung toner cartridge.
Using this feature extends the life of the toner cartridge and reduce your
cost per page, but it also reduces print quality.
Checking the remaining toner
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.
You can check the level of toner left in the cartridge.
If you are having print quality problems, this can help you determine if
the problem is caused by low toner.
Opening the cartridge package prior to use dramatically 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:
1
Press Menu until System Setup appears on the bottom line of the
display and press OK.
2
Press the Scroll buttons until Maintenance appears and press
OK.
3
Press the Scroll buttons until Supplies Life appears and press
OK.

Redistributing toner cartridge
Note
When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life:
• If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and
wash clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric.
• White streaks and light printing occur.
• Toner Low appears on the display.

• The Status LED blinks red.
If this happens, you can temporarily reestablish print quality by
redistributing the remaining toner in the cartridge. In some cases, white
streaks or light printing will still occur even after you have redistributed
the toner.

Open the top cover.
2
Pull the toner cartridge out.
Tabs on the sides of the cartridge and corresponding grooves
within the printer will guide the cartridge into the correct position
until it locks into place completely.
Caution

Dropouts
Dirt inside of the printer or improper paper loading may reduce print
quality. See the table below to troubleshoot problems.
Light or faded

Toner spots
Vertical lines
If black vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The drum inside the toner cartridge has
probably been scratched. Install a new toner
cartridge. See page 8.5.
If white vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The surface of the LSU part inside the printer
may be dirty. Clean the LSU. See page 8.2.
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
page 8.4. If this does not improve 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 page 5.3.
• If the entire page is light, the print resolution
setting is too light or toner save mode is on.
Adjust the print resolution and toner save
mode in the printer properties. See the
Software section.
• If the entire page is faded with "Toner Low
Replace Toner" message on LCD,
set "CLR Empty Msg." to "On" referring to
page 8.6. In this case, you can keep printing
but the quality cannot be guaranteed, and the
product support is no longer provided.
• A combination of faded or smeared defects
may indicate that the printer needs cleaning.
See page 8.1.
• The surface of LSU may be dirty. Clean the
LSU. See page 8.2.
Gray
background
If the amount of background shading becomes
unacceptable, the procedures below may fix the
problem.
• Change to lighter weight pages. See page 5.3.
• Check the printer’s environment; very dry (low
humidity) or high humidity (higher than 80%
RH) conditions can increase the amount of
background shading.
• Remove the old toner cartridge and install a
new one. See page 8.5.
Toner smear
• Clean the inside of the printer. See page 8.1.
• Check the type and quality. See page 5.2.
• Remove the toner cartridge and install a new
one. See page 8.5.
• The paper may not meet specifications (for
example, the paper is too moist or too rough).
See page 5.3.
• The transfer roller or paper path may be dirty.

If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of
the page at even intervals:
• The toner cartridge may be damaged. If a
repetitive mark occurs on the page, print a
cleaning sheet several times to clean the
cartridge; see page 8.3. After the printout, if
you still have the same problems, install a new
toner cartridge. See page 8.5.
• Parts of the printer 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 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
via the printer properties window.
• If characters are improperly formed and
producing hollowed images, the paper stock
may be too slick. Try a different paper. See
page 5.3.
• If characters are improperly formed and
producing a wavy effect, the scanner unit may
need service. Verify that it also occurs on a
demo page (see page 2.6). For service,
contact a service representative.
• Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
• Check the type and quality. Both high
temperature and humidity can cause paper
curl. See page 5.2.
• Turn over the stack of paper in the tray. Also
try rotating the paper 180° in the tray.
• Try printing to the rear cover (face-up).

your specific printing needs. See “Printing a Document” on
page 12 for more information on accessing printer properties.
You can set advanced settings by clicking the Advanced
Options button.
• TrueType Options: This option determines what the driver
tells the printer about how to image the text in your document.
Select the appropriate setting according to the status of your
document. This option may be available only in
Windows 9x/Me, depending on your particular printer
model.
- Download as Outline: When this option is selected, the
driver will download any TrueType fonts that are used in your
document not already stored (resident) on your printer. If,
after printing a document, you find that the fonts did not print
correctly, choose Download as bit image and resubmit your
print job. The Download as bit image setting is often useful
when printing Adobe. This feature is available only
when you use the PCL printer driver.
- Download as Bitmap: When this option is selected, the
driver will download the font data as bitmap images.
Documents with complicated fonts, such as Korean or
Chinese, or various other fonts, will print faster in this setting.
- Print as Graphics: When this option is selected, the driver
will download any fonts as graphics. When printing documents
with high graphic content and relatively few TrueType fonts,
printing performance (speed) may be enhanced in this
setting.
• Print All Text To Black: When the Print All Text To Black
option is checked, all text in your document prints solid black,
regardless of the color it appears on the screen.
Click the Graphic tab to display the properties shown below..
Resolution
The Resolution options you can select may vary
depending on your printer model. The higher the setting,
the sharper the clarity of printed characters and graphics. The
higher setting also may increase the time it takes to print a
document.
Image Mode
The available options are Normal and Text Enhance. Some
printers do not support this feature.
• Printer Setting: If you select this option, this feature is
determined by the setting you’ve made on the control panel of
the printer.
• Normal: This setting is for normal documents.
• Text Enhancement: Image Mode allows the user to enhance
printouts.
Toner Save Mode
Selecting this option extends the life of your toner cartridge and
reduces your cost per page without a significant reduction in print
quality. Some printers do not support this feature.
• Printer Setting: If you select this option, this feature is
determined by the setting you’ve made on the control panel of

Basic Printing
Extras Tab
You can select output options for your document. See “Printing
a Document” on page 12 for more information about accessing
the printer properties.
Click the Extras tab to access the following feature:
• Use Printer Fonts: When Use Printer Fonts is checked, the
printer uses the fonts that are stored in its memory (resident
fonts) to print your document, rather than downloading the
fonts used in your document. Because downloading fonts takes
time, selecting this option can speed up your printing time.
When using Printer fonts, the printer will try to match the fonts
used in your document to those stored in its memory. If,
however, you use fonts in your document that are very different
from those resident in the printer, your printed output will
appear very different from what it looks like on the screen.
This feature is available only when you use the PCL
printer driver.
• Save as Form for Overlay: Select Save as Form for Overlay to
save the document as a form file (C:\FORMOVER\*.FOM). Once
this option is selected, the printer driver requires the file name
and the destination path each time you print. If you want to
preset the file name and specify the path, click on the button in
the Output to area, and type the file name and specify the path.
This feature is available only when you use the PCL
printer driver.
Job Setting
Print and Hold dialog allows you to select how to print or save the
printing file by using the optional HDD. Some printers do not
support this feature.
Watermark
You can create a background text image to be printed on each
page of your document. For details, see “Using Watermarks” on
page 21.
Overlay
Overlays are often used to take the place of preprinted forms and
letterhead paper. For details, see “Using Overlays” on page 22.
Output Options
• Print Subset: You can set the sequence in which the pages
print. Select the print order from the drop-down list.

What is an Overlay?
Dear ABC
Regards
WORLD BEST
An overlay is text and/or images stored in 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 do not need
to load preprinted letterhead paper in the printer. You need only
tell the printer to print the letterhead overlay on your
document.

same page will be printed on the front and back of one
sheet. Therefore, if you need multiple copies of a
document and you want those copies on both sides of
the paper, you must print them one at a time, as
separate print jobs.
