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

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,

Configuring TCP/IP
Using SetIP program
Your printer can be set up with a variety of TCP/IP network information,
such as an IP address, a subnet mask, a gateway, and DNS addresses.
There are several ways in which your printer can be assigned a TCP/IP
address, depending on your network.
This program is for the network IP setting using the MAC address which
is the hardware serial number of the network printer card or interface.
Especially, it is for the network administrator to set several network IPs
at the same time.
• Static addressing: A TCP/IP address is assigned manually by the
system administrator.

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 materials, consider the following:
• Desired outcome: The print media you choose should be appropriate
for your project.
• Size: You can use any size media that fits easily within the paper
adjusters of the paper tray.
• Weight: Your printer supports print media weights as follows:
- 16 to 24 lb bond (60 to 90 g/m2) for the tray 1 and optional tray 2
- 16 to 43 lb bond (60 to 163 g/m2) for the multi-purpose tray
- 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 g/m2) for the duplex printing
• 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 materials,
keep these guidelines in mind:
Media type
• Always use print media that conform with the specifications listed on
page 5.3.
• 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%.
Envelopes
• 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.
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
• Load special media types one sheet at a time through the multipurpose tray to avoid paper jams.
• 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 200° C (392° 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.

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 200° C (392° 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 200° C (392° 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 205° C (400° 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 250 sheets of 21 lb plain paper.
You can purchase an optional tray (tray 2) and attach it below the
standard tray to load an additional 250 sheets of paper. For order
information for an optional tray, see page 7.1.
The paper level indicator on the front of the tray 1 and the optional tray
2 shows the amount of paper currently left in the tray. When the tray is
empty, the indicator bar appears at the bottom.
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.

Tips on using the multi-purpose tray
• Load only one size of print media at a time in the multi-purpose tray.
• To prevent paper jams, do not add paper when there is still paper in
the multi-purpose tray. This also applies to other types of print media.
• Print media should be loaded face up with the top edge going into the
multi-purpose tray first and be placed in the center of the tray.
• Always load only the print media specified in page 5.1 to avoid paper
jams and print quality problems.
• Flatten any curl on postcards, envelopes, and labels before loading
them into the multi-purpose tray.
• When you print on 76 mm x 127 mm (3 x 5 inches) sized media on
the multi-purpose tray, open the rear cover for straight paper path to
avoid paper jams.
The display shows a message prompting you to load paper and
press OK.
• Make sure to open the rear cover when you print on transparencies. If
not, they may tear while exiting the printer.

From the printer’s control panel, you can print pages that give detailed
information about the printer. They can be help you maintain your printer.
1
Press Menu until Information appears on the bottom line of the
display and press OK.
2
Press the scroll buttons until the information page you want
appears and press OK.
A page prints out.
Cautions
• 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.
Cleaning the printer
During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles can
accumulate inside the printer. This buildup can cause print quality
problems, such as toner specks or smearing. Your printer has a cleaning
mode that can correct and prevent these types of problems.
3
Cleaning the outside of the printer
With a dry lint-free cloth, wipe away any dust and spilled toner from
the toner cartridge area and the toner cartridge cavity.
Clean the cabinet of the printer with a soft, lint-free cloth. You can
dampen the cloth slightly with water, but be careful not to let any water
drip onto or into the printer.
Caution
If your machine or its surrounding is contaminated with toner,
we recommend you to use a cloth or tissue dampened with
water to clean it. Toner blown into the air by a vacuum cleaner
maybe harmful.
Caution
Cleaning the cabinet of the printer with cleaning materials
containing large amounts of alcohol, solvents, or other strong
substances can discolor or crack the cabinet.
Caution
While cleaning the inside of the printer, be careful not to touch
the transfer roller, located underneath the toner cartridge. Oil
from your fingers can cause print scan quality problems.

Locate the long strip of glass (LSU) inside the top of the cartridge
compartment, and gently swab the glass with a cotton swab
checking to see if dirt turns the cotton black.
Maintaining the toner cartridge
Toner cartridge storage
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.
5
Reinsert the toner cartridge and close the front cover.
6
Plug in the power cord and turn the printer on.
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 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:
•
•
•
Printing a cleaning sheet
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:
• OPC Cleaning sheet: cleans the OPC drum of the toner cartridge.
• Fuser Cleaning sheet: cleans the fuser unit inside the printer.
This process will produce a page with toner debris, which should be
discarded.

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.

- 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-Samsung and refilled toner cartridge
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.
Or, press the scroll buttons until Clean Drum or Clean Fuser
appears and press OK.
Caution
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.
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.

Saving Toner
Redistributing toner cartridge
To save toner, press Toner Save on the control panel. The button
backlight turns on.
When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life:
Using this feature extends the life of the toner cartridge and reduce
your cost per page, but it also reduces print quality.

• White streaks or light printing occurs.
• The Smart Panel program window appears on the computer telling
you that the toner level is low.
Checking the remaining toner
• The Status LED blinks red.
You can check the level of toner left in the cartridge.
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.
If you are having print quality problems, this can help you determine if
the problem is caused by low toner.

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 8.3. 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.
• A combination of faded or smeared defects
may indicate that the printer needs cleaning.
See page 8.1.

If black vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The drum inside the toner cartridge has
probably been scratched. Install a new toner
cartridge.
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 8.4.
• 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 8.4.
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 8.2. After the printout, if
you still have the same problems, install a new
toner cartridge. See page 8.4.
• 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.

Suggested solutions
Condition
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.

Suggested solutions
The printer doesn’t
print.
• 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 printers. Make sure that your
machine is displayed on the list. If not,
please, invoke Add new printer wizard to set
up your device.
• Check if the printer is started. Open Printers
configuration and select your machine on
the printers list. Look at the description in
the Selected printer pane. If its status
contains “(stopped)” string, please, press
the Start button. After that normal operation
of the printer should be restored. The
"stopped" status might be activated when
some problems in printing occurred.
• 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.
I encounter error
“Unable to open
MFP port device

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

Advanced Options
Extras Tab
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.
- 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.
• Print All Text To Darken: When the Print All Text To
Darken option is checked, all text in your document is allowed
to print darker than on a normal document. Some printers do
not support this feature.
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:
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.
- Normal (1,2,3): Your printer prints all pages from the first
page to the last page.
- Reverse All Pages (3,2,1): Your printer prints all pages
from the last page to the first page.
- Print Odd Pages: Your printer prints only the odd numbered
pages of the document.
- Print Even Pages: Your printer prints only the even
numbered pages of the document.
• 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.

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.

CAUTION: If you have selected duplex printing and
then try to print multiple copies of a document, the
printer may not print the document in the way you
want. In case of "Collated copy" , if your document has
odd pages, the last page of the first copy and the first
page of the next copy will be printed on the front and
back of one sheet. In case of "Uncollated copy", the
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.
