• TCP/IP: Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol
• DHCP: Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
• BOOTP: Bootstrap Protocol
Once you have connected your printer to a network with an RJ-45
Ethernet cable, you can share the printer with other network users.
You need to set up the network protocols on the printer to use it as your
network printer. Protocols can be set up by the following two methods:
Via network administration programs
Configuring TCP/IP
You can configure your printer’s print server settings and manage the
printer via the following programs that came with your printer:
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.
• SyncThru™ Web Admin Service:Web-based printer management
solution for network administrators. SyncThru™ Web Admin
Service provides you with an efficient way of manageing network
devices and lets you remotely monitor and troubleshoot network
machines from any sith with corporate internet access. Download this
program from http://solution.samsungprinter.com.
• Static addressing: A TCP/IP address is assigned manually by the
system administrator.
• Dynamic addressing via BOOTP/DHCP (default): A TCP/IP address
is assigned automatically by the server.
• SyncThru™ Web Service: A web server embedded to your network
print server, which allows you to configure the network parameters
necessary for the printer to connect to various network environments.
Note
Before configuring TCP/IP, you need to set the network
protocol to TCP/IP.
• SetIP: Utility program allowing you to select a network interface and
manually configure the IP addresses for use with the TCP/IP protocol.
See Using SetIP program on page 4.3
Via the control panel
You can set up the following basic network parameters through the
printer’s control panel:
• Configure TCP/IP
• Configure IPX frame types for NetWare
• Configure EtherTalk

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 (ML-3051ND only)
• 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 20 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 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.

Using the multi-purpose tray
The multi-purpose tray can hold special sizes and types of print material,
such as transparencies, postcards, note cards, and envelopes. It is
useful for single page printing on letterhead or colored paper.
Depending on the media type you are using, keep the following
loading guidelines:
• Envelopes: Flap side down and with the stamp area on the top left
side.
To load paper in the multi-purpose tray:
1
Open the multi-purpose tray and unfold the multi-purpose tray
extension, as shown.
• Transparencies: Print side up and the top with the adhesive strip
entering the printer first.
• Labels: Print side up and top short edge entering the printer first.
• Preprinted paper: Design side up with the top edge toward the
printer.
• Card stock: Print side up and the short edge entering the printer
first.
• Previously printed paper: Previously printed side down with an
uncurled edge toward the printer.
Note
Make sure that you have not loaded too much print material.
The print material buckles if you load a stack that is too deep or
if you push it in too far.
2
Caution
If you are using paper, flex or fan the edge of the paper stack to
separate the pages before loading.
When you print on special material like envelopes, labels,
transparencies, or cards, the output location should be the
rear cover. Open the rear cover to use it. See page 5.8.

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 Stop (if you use the ML-3050) or OK (if you use the ML3051N or ML-3051ND).
• Make sure to open the rear cover when you print on transparencies. If
not, they may tear while exiting the printer.
5
Using manual feed mode
The printer picks up the print material and prints. After one page is
printed, the message appears again.
You can manually load a sheet of print material in the multi-purpose tray
if you select Manual Feed in the Source option from the Paper tab when
you change print settings to print a document. See the Software
Section. Manually loading paper can be helpful when you want to check
the print quality after each page is printed.
Note

Printing to the rear cover (Face up)
Selecting an output location
Using the rear cover, paper comes out of the printer face up.
The printer has two output locations; the rear cover (face up) and the
output tray (face down).
Printing from the multi-purpose tray to the rear cover provides a straight
paper path. Using the rear cover might improve the output quality with
special print media.
To use the rear cover, open it by pulling down.

The printer sends output to the output tray by default. To use the output
tray, make sure that the rear cover is closed.
Notes
• If paper coming out of the output tray has problems, such as
excessive curl, try printing to the rear cover.
• To avoid paper jams, do not open or close the rear cover while
the printer is printing.
Caution
The fuser area inside the rear cover of your printer becomes
very hot when in use. Take care when you access this area.
Printing to the output tray (Face down)

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.
Cautions
A page prints out.
• 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.
In the ML-3050
The configuration page to view the current settings, to help troubleshoot
problems, or to verify the installation of optional accessories can be
printed.
Press and hold down Stop for about 6 seconds.
3
With a dry lint-free cloth, wipe away any dust and spilled toner from
the toner cartridge area and the toner cartridge cavity.
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.
Cleaning the outside of the printer
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
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.
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 to see if dirt turns the
white cotton black.
Maintaining the toner cartridge
Toner cartridge storage
To get the most from the toner cartridge, keep the following guidelines
in mind:
• Do not remove the toner cartridge from its package until ready for use.
• Do not refill the toner cartridge. The printer warranty does not cover
damage caused by using a refilled cartridge.
• Store toner cartridge in the same environment as the printer.
• To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it to light for
more than a few minute.
Expected cartridge life
5
Reinsert the toner cartridge and close the front cover.
6
Plug in the power cord and turn the printer on.
The life of the toner cartridge depends on the amount of toner that print
jobs require. When printing text at ISO 19752 5% coverage, a new toner
cartridge lasts an average of either 8,000 or 4,000 pages. (The original
toner cartridge supplied with the printer lasts an average of 4,000
pages.) The actual number may also be different depending on the print
density of the pages you print on, and the number of pages may be
affected by operating environment, printing interval, media type, and
media size. If you print a lot of graphics, you may need to change the
cartridge more often.
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.
Saving Toner
In the ML-3050, press and hold down Stop for about 10 seconds to print
a OPC cleaning sheet.
To save toner, press Toner Save on the control panel. The button
backlight turns on.
In the ML-3051N and ML-3051ND, this process will produce a page with
toner debris, which should be discarded.
Using this feature extends the life of the toner cartridge and reduce
your cost per page, but it also reduces print quality.

Redistributing toner cartridge
Note
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.
When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life:
• White streaks or light printing occurs.

• 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.
1
Open the front cover.
2
Pull the toner cartridge out.
Replacing the toner cartridge
When the toner cartridge is completely empty:
• Toner Low Replace Toner appears on the display. (ML-3051N, ML3051ND only)

you that the toner cartridge is empty.
• Avoid reaching too far into the printer. The fusing area may
be hot.
• 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.

written to the memory of the toner cartridge, and this menu will
be disappeared from the Maintenance menu.
Maintenance parts
Thoroughly roll the cartridge to assure maximum copies per
cartridge. Save the box and the plastic bag for shipping.
To avoid print quality and paper feed problems resulting from worn parts
and to maintain your printer in top working condition the following items
will need to be replaced at the specified number of pages or when the
life span of each item has expired.

• 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.

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 8.3.
• 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 8.3.
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 8.3.
• 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.
Back of

• 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

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

• 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.
I encounter error
“Unable to open

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
Use the following Graphic options to adjust the print quality for
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.
• 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.
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(1,2,3): This setting is for normal documents.
• Text Enhance: 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
the printer.
• On: Select this option to allow the printer to use less toner on
each page.
• Off: If you don’t need to save toner when printing a document,

• 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.

computer.
After the driver is installed on your Linux system, the driver
package allows you to monitor a number of machine devices via
fast ECP parallel ports and USB simultaneously.
The Unified Linux Driver package is supplied with a smart and
flexible installation program. You don't need to search for
additional components that might be necessary for the Unified
Linux Driver software: all required packages will be carried onto
your system and installed automatically; this is possible on a
wide set of the most popular Linux clones.

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.
