regulations apply to laser products manufactured from August 1, 1976. Compliance is
mandatory for products marketed in the United States. The label shown below indicates
compliance with the CDRH regulations and must be attached to laser products marketed
in the United States.
■ C. Additional Informaftion
When servicing the optical system of the printer, be careful not to place screwdrivers or
other shiny objects in the path of the laser beam. Also, accessories such as watches and
rings should be removed before working on the printer. The reflected beam, though
invisible, can permanently damage your eyes. The label bearig the following warning is
attached to the insides of covers where there is danger of exposure to laser radiation:
DANGER- Laser radiation when open.
AVOID DIRECT EXPOSURE TO BEAM.
DANGER- Laser radiation when open and interlock defeated.
AVOID DIRECT EXPOSURE TO BEAM.

Operation of the Machine and Terms Used in This
Manual
This machine makes effective use of memory in order to perform print operations efficiently.
For example, as soon as the machine has scanned the original that you want to copy, it can
immediately scan the next person’s original. You can also print from this machine, using a
function other than the Copy function. In this machine, these operations take place in a
complex way, so that not only copies, but also various kinds of prints may sometimes have to
wait their turn before they can be output.
To avoid confusion when reading this manual, the term “printing” used throughout this
manual is defined as set out below. There are some cases in which the scanning of an
original when making a copy, and the process of making a print, are described separately.
Printing
Outputting a copy, outputting data stored in a mail
box, or outputting data sent from a personal
computer to the machine.

What Are Menu Functions?
The machine lets you specify the number of copies, the paper size, etc., to use
when it receives a print job. Normally, however, these types of settings are specified
by the application sending the print job, or by the printer driver.
However, you can specify many other settings other than the number of copies, the
paper size, etc., which affect the printer function of the machine. These include
some settings that cannot be specified from an application or the printer driver.
These settings are referred to as "Menu Functions."
The menu functions are set using the keys on the touch panel display and are
grouped together depending on the type of settings performed. This makes them
easy to set.
NOTE
• The contents of the Printer Settings are stored in the nonvolatile memory of the machine.
This means that the settings are stored even if the power to the machine is switched off the settings will still be available when the power is switched on again.
Understanding the Printer Settings Priorities
When the same menu function setting can be specified by using the keys on the
machine, or by specifying the setting in an application or the printer driver, the
setting from the application or printer driver has priority. These settings will override
the settings made on the machine.

When a secured print job is sent to the machine, it is stored on the
machine’s hard disk, and a password must be entered before the job can
be printed. This setting specifies how long the job will be stored before it is
automatically canceled.

Printer Settings Menu Functions and Operation
• To perform an error skip, press [Print] on the System
Monitor screen, select the job where the error has
occurred, then press [Details] and [Error Skip].
• Error skip only temporarily clears an error, so there is the
possibility that the data may not be printed correctly.
• For information on types of errors that can be temporarily
cleared with Auto Continue, see “You cannot print the last
page,” on p. 5-6.
• When Auto Continue has been set to [On], errors will be
automatically skipped (this is valid even if multiple errors
have occurred).
Timeout
Timeout (5 - 15 - 300 s), Off
When the machine is set to switch between printer modes, the machine
detects the control commands and starts printing in the appropriate mode.
After all the data has been received and the end of the data is detected,
the print mode stops. This processing of print data is called a job.
If the data for a job does not end, the machine will not start the next job
even if it receives other print commands. In cases like this, use the Timeout
setting to force jobs to finish if no data is received during the set period of
time.
When Timeout is On, if print data is still remaining in the machine because
of being unable to send a form feed command, the paper can be fed
automatically. When the set time is finished, the job will automatically be
finished.
When Timeout is Off, jobs will not end automatically.

Printer Settings Menu Functions and Operation
IMPORTANT
• When this function is set so that a job will timeout, the
machine may end a print job before all the data has been
received if it takes a long time for the PC to send the data.
If this occurs, adjust the length of the Timeout setting.
• If [Off] is selected, you will not be able to make copies
until print jobs that use the staple sort, punch, and booklet
settings have been completed.
• If this setting is set to more than 60 seconds, the machine
will cancel a job, due to a timeout, if it does not receive an
end-of-job command causing the job not to print correctly.
• This setting specifies the timeout setting for jobs received
from the parallel port interface. If [Off] is selected the
machine will not be able to receive print jobs from the
network until jobs received from the parallel port interface
have been completed.
NOTE
• When a job is being processed, the Processing/Data lamp

Some Basic Facts About Fonts
This section summarises some of the basic facts you should know about fonts.
What Is a Font?
A font is a collection of letters and symbols used when printing a document. In
general, a group of letters and symbols sharing a common design is referred to as
a font. A font consists of the letters A to Z in both upper and lowercase, digits, and
symbols.
The design that distinguishes one font from another is referred to as a “typeface.”
Each font has a typeface name, such as Courier, CG Times, Letter Gothic, etc.
Attributes of Fonts
6
Appendix
All fonts share some common characteristics, which are called “attributes.” The
typeface is one such attribute. The letters and symbols that are actually printed are
determined by the values of a collection of these attributes.
6-2
Typeface
The design of the letters (for example, Courier, CG Times, Letter, or Gothic).
Stroke weight
The thickness of the lines with which the letters are drawn (e.g. bold, medium, or light).
Style
Whether the letters are drawn straight or at an angle (e.g. upright or italic).
Point size
Height of the letters (e.g. 10 point or 5 point).
Pitch (cpi)
Number of characters that are printed in one inch (e.g. 10 cpi, 12 cpi, or Scale).
Character width
(Fix/PS)
Indicates whether the character width is set to “Fixed” or “Proportional.”
Defaults
Orientation
Orientation of the characters on a page (“Portrait” or “Landscape”).
Symbol set
The rule that defines the correspondence between the character codes coming from
the host computer, and the letter forms that appear on the page (for example,
Roman-8).
Some Basic Facts About Fonts

Typeface
Typeface refers to the design of the characters and symbols. The following figure
shows an example of some typefaces.
■ Typeface
Courier
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
Times
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
Helvetica ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
Stroke Weight
Stroke weight refers to the thickness of the print. There are light, medium, and bold
stroke weights. The printer function has medium and bold fonts available. The figure
below shows an example of medium and bold printing.

Style
Style refers to the shape of the characters. The printer function can print in two
styles:
upright and italic. With some fonts like Letter Gothic, the term “Oblique” is used in
the same manner as italics.
■ Style
Point size
Point size refers to the height of the character. Point size is measured in points. One
inch is divided into 72 points and 1 point is 1/72 of an inch (about 0.35 mm). The
printer function has bit-mapped fonts and scalable fonts available. The bit-mapped
fonts are fixed in size, but the scalable fonts are not fixed in size. Scalable fonts are
freely scalable to any size you wish in 0.1 point increments. The following figure
shows an example of various point sizes.

■ Points size
NOTE
• Refer to the section “Bit-mapped Fonts and Scalable Fonts,” on p. 6-8 for more
information on bit-mapped fonts and scalable fonts.
6-4
Some Basic Facts About Fonts
6
Pitch (cpi)
Pitch refers to the number of characters that are printed in one inch. The unit is cpi
(characters per inch). As the number of characters per inch increases, the space
between characters decreases; as the cpi decreases, the space between
characters increases.
■ Pitch
Character Width (Fix and PS)
Each character has a different width from all the other characters in a font at a given
point size. For example, “W” is a wider letter than “I.” There are two ways to go
about printing letters of different widths: you can print all letters with the same
spacing, regardless of their actual width; or you can change the spacing between
letters to accommodate these different widths. Printing all letters with the same
spacing is called “Fixed spacing”, while changing the spacing to accommodate
different letter widths is called “Proportional spacing.”
Because the Fixed spacing method prints all letters with the same spacing, the
number of characters which will fit into a given length is a fixed quantity which can
be specified.
If the characters are printed with Proportional spacing, then the number of
characters that will fit into an inch varies depending on the letters printed.

Orientation
Orientation refers to the direction of printing. The printer function can print using
two different paper orientations: portrait and landscape. With portrait orientation,
text is printed across the width of the paper (short edge), and with landscape
orientation, text is printed across the length of the paper (long edge).

Symbol Set
When you print the letter “A,” the host computer sends a code corresponding to “A”
(hexadecimal 41 is an example of this) to the machine. This code is referred to as
the character code. The machine stores an internal representation of each
character, and selects from among these character patterns the pattern
corresponding to the received code. In this case, the machine searches for the
pattern for “A,” and prints it.

Machine
Appendix
6
Character
patterns
The machine uses a fixed rule to decide which letter or symbol corresponds to the
character code sent from the host computer. For example, the letter “A” is printed
for the hexadecimal code “41”. The rule which determines the correspondence
between character codes and printed letter is called the ”symbol set.”

Bit-mapped Fonts and Scalable Fonts
There are two types of fonts available, and these fonts are distinguished by the type
of data from which they are formed.
• Bit-mapped
fonts
• Scalable fonts
Bit-mapped Fonts
Each character of bit-mapped fonts are composed of grid of small dots and stored
in the machine’s memory in dot matrix.
Bit-mapped fonts are fixed in size and specified by the characteristics called
“attributes,” such as typeface, stroke weight, style and so on. Various types of bit
mapped fonts are produced by the combination of these attributes.

With scalable fonts, characters are freely enlarged or compressed from the one
point to any size you wish in 0.1 point increments.

Standard Scalable Fonts (PCL)
With scalable fonts, characters are freely enlarged or compressed from one point to
any size you wish in 0.1 point increments. (The maximum range of scaling depends
on the size of the memory installed in the machine and the size of the paper used.)
