Remove the toner cartridge from its bag.
CAUTION: To prevent damage, do not expose the toner cartridge to light for more than a few minutes.
2.
Locate the sealing tape at the end of the toner cartridge. Carefully pull the tape completely out of the cartridge and discard it.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
NOTE: The sealing tape should be longer than 60 cm when correctly removed.
NOTE: Holding the toner cartridge, pull the sealing tape straight to remove it from the cartridge. Be careful not to cut the tape. If this happens, you
cannot use the toner cartridge.
NOTE: See the help pictures on the cartridge wrapping paper.
3.
Remove the flexible plastic holder from the toner cartridge.
4.
Thoroughly shake the cartridge 5 or 6 times to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge.
Thoroughly roll the cartridge to assure maximum copies per cartridge. Save the box and the plastic bag for shipping.
NOTE: If toner comes into contact with your clothing, wipe the toner off with a dry cloth and wash your clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into
fabric.

Getting Started
The supplied Drivers and Utilities CD provides you with Dell's printer driver package for use with a Linux-based computer.
Dell's printer driver package provides the ability to print documents. The package also delivers powerful applications for configuring your printer.
After the driver is installed on your Linux system, the driver package allows you to monitor a number of printer devices via a USB port.
The printer driver package is supplied with a smart and flexible installation program. You do not need to search for additional components necessary for the
printer 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.

Using the Configurator
Configurator is a tool intended primarily for configuring printer devices. Since a device combines the printer, Configurator provides options logically grouped for
printer. There is also a special port option responsible for the regulation of access to a printer via a single I/O channel.
After installing the printer driver, the Configurator icon will automatically be created on your desktop.
Opening the Configurator
1.
Double-click Configurator on the desktop.
You can also click the Startup Menu icon, select Dell printer, and then Configurator.
2.
Press each button on the Modules pane to switch to the corresponding configuration window.
You can use the on-screen help by clicking Help.
3.
After changing the configurations, click Exit to close the Configurator.
Printers Configuration
Printers configuration has two tabs: Printers and Classes.
Printers Tab
You can see the current system's printer configuration by clicking on the printer icon button on the left side of the MFP Configurator window.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
You can use the following printer control buttons:
l
Refresh: renews the available printers list.
l
Add Printer: allows you to add a new printer.
l
Remove Printer: removes the selected printer.
l
Set as Default: sets the current printer as a default printer.
l

terminated for any reason.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
l
Refresh: renews the available ports list.
l
Release port: releases the selected port.
Sharing Ports Between Printers
Your printer may be connected to a host computer via the parallel port or USB port. Since the printer device contains more than one device, it is necessary to
organize proper access of "consumer" applications to these devices via the single I/O port.
The Dell Printer driver package provides an appropriate port-sharing mechanism that is used by Dell printer and scanner drivers. The drivers address their
devices via so-called ports. The current status of any port can be viewed via the Ports Configuration. Post sharing prevents you from accessing one functional
block of the printer device, while another block is in use.
When you install a new printer onto your system, it is strongly recommended you do this with the assistance of a Configurator. In this case, you will be asked
to choose an I/O port for the new device. This choice provides the most suitable configuration for the printer's functionality.
Configuring Printer Properties
Using the properties window provided by the Printers configuration, you can change the various printer properties for your machine.
1.
Open the Configurator.
If necessary, switch to Printers configuration.
2.
Select your printer on the available printers list and click Properties.
3.
The Printer Properties window opens.
The following five tabs display at the top of the window:
l
General: allows you to change the printer location and name. The name entered in this tab displays on the printer list in Printers configuration.
l
Connection: allows you to view or select another port. If you change the printer port from USB to parallel or vice versa while in use, you must reconfigure the printer port in this tab.
l
Driver: allows you to view or select another printer driver. By clicking Options, you can set the default device options.
l
Jobs: shows the list of print jobs. Click Cancel Job to cancel the selected job; select the Show completed jobs check box to see previous jobs on
the job list.

Classes: shows the class that your printer is in. Click Add to Class to add your printer to a specific class or click Remove from Class to remove the
printer from the selected class.

Cleaning Your Printer
During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles accumulate inside the printer. This buildup causes print quality problems, such as toner specks or
smearing. Your printer has a cleaning mode that corrects and prevents these types of problems.
CAUTION: Cleaning solvents containing alcohol or other strong substances may discolor or crack the printer cabinet.
Cleaning the Exterior
Clean the printer cabinet with a soft, damp, lint-free cloth. Do not let water drip onto or inside the printer.
Cleaning the Interior
Paper, toner, and dust particles accumulate inside the printer and cause print quality problems, such as smearing or toner specks. Clean inside the printer to
prevent these problems.

Shared Printing
You can use Microsoft's Point and Print or Peer-to-Peer methods to share a printer on the network with a USB or parallel cable connection. To use one of these
methods, you must first share the printer and then install the shared printer on client computers.
However, if you use one of these Microsoft methods, you will not have all the Dell features, such as the Status Monitor, that are installed with the Drivers and
Utilities CD.
NOTE: Windows 2000, Windows XP Professional, Windows NT, and Windows Vista require administrative access to share a printer.

Now that the printer is shared, you can install the printer on network clients using the Point and Print method or the Peer-to-Peer method.
Install the Shared Printer on Client Computers
Point and Print
This method is the best use of system resources. The print server handles driver modifications and print job processing. This lets network clients return to their
programs much faster.
If you use the Point and Print method, a subset of driver information is copied from the print server to the client computer. This is just enough information to
send a print job to the printer.
1.
On the Windows desktop of the client computer, double-click My Network Places or Network Neighborhood.
2.
Double-click the host name of the print server computer.
3.
Right-click the shared printer name and click Install or Connect.
Wait for the driver information to copy from the print server computer to the client computer and for a new printer object to be added to the Printers folder.
The time this takes varies based on network traffic and other factors.

Precautions When Installing Printer Accessories
Never remove the control board cover while the printer is plugged in.
To avoid the possibility of an electrical shock, always disconnect the power cord when installing or removing ANY internal or external printer option.
The control board and internal accessories (wireless network interface card, DIMM, and hard disk) are sensitive to static electricity. Before installing or
removing internal accessories, discharge static electricity from your body by touching something metal, such as the metal back plate on any device plugged
into a grounded power source. If you walk around before finishing installation, discharge any static electricity once again.
Installing Printer Memory
Additional printer memory is provided on a Dual In-line Memory Module (DIMM).
The Dell 5330dn Mono Laser Printer has 256 MB of memory. It can be expanded to 768 MB.
NOTE: Your printer supports only Dell DIMMs. Order Dell DIMMs online at www.dell.com.
1.
Power the printer off and unplug all cables from the printer.
2.
Grasp the control board cover and remove it.
3.
Remove a new memory DIMM from its antistatic package.

Print Media Guidelines
Print media is paper, card stock, transparencies, labels, and envelopes. Your printer provides high quality printing on a variety of print media. Selecting the
appropriate print media for your printer helps avoid printing problems. This chapter provides information on how to make print media selections, how to care
for the print media, and how to load them in the Standard Tray, Optional Trays or Multi-purpose Feeder and High Capacity Feeder.
Paper
For the best print quality, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb) xerographic, long grain paper. Try a sample of any paper you are considering using with the printer before
buying large quantities.
When loading paper, note the recommended print side on the paper package, and load paper accordingly. See "Loading Print Media in the Paper Tray" and
"Using the Multi-purpose Feeder" for detailed loading instructions.
Paper Characteristics
The following paper characteristics affect print quality and reliability. We recommend that you follow these guidelines when evaluating new paper stock:
Weight
The printer can automatically feed paper weights from 60 to 120 g/m2 (16 to 32 lb bond) long grain in the paper tray. Paper lighter than 60 g/m2 (16 lb) may
not be substantial enough to feed properly, causing jams. For best performance, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb bond) long grain paper.
For duplex printing, use 60 to 120 g/m2 (16 to 32 lb bond) paper.
Curl
Curl is the tendency of print media to curve at its edges. Excessive curl can cause paper feeding problems. Curl usually occurs after the paper passes through
the printer, where it is exposed to high temperatures. Storing paper unwrapped in humid conditions, even in the paper tray, can contribute to paper curling
prior to printing and can cause feeding problems.
Smoothness
The degree of smoothness of paper directly affects print quality. If the paper is too rough, the toner does not fuse to the paper properly, resulting in poor print
quality. If the paper is too smooth, it can cause paper feeding problems. Smoothness should be between 100 and 300 Sheffield points; however, smoothness
between 150 and 250 Sheffield points produces the best print quality.
Moisture Content
The amount of moisture in the paper affects both print quality and the ability of the printer to feed the paper properly. Leave the paper in its original wrapper
until you are ready to use it. This limits the exposure of the paper to moisture changes that can degrade its performance.
Grain Direction
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
Grain refers to the alignment of the paper fibers in a sheet of paper. Grain is either long grain, running the length of the paper, or short grain, running the
width of the paper.
For 60 to 90 g/m2 (16 to 24 lb bond) paper, long grain fibers are recommended. For papers heavier than 90 g/m2 (24 lb bond), short grain fibers are preferred.
For the Multi-purpose Feeder, 60 to 90 g/m2 (16 to 24 lb bond) paper, long grain fibers are recommended.
Fiber Content
Most high-quality xerographic paper is made from 100% chemically pulped wood. This content provides the paper with a high degree of stability resulting in
fewer paper feeding problems and better print quality. Paper containing fibers, such as cotton, possess characteristics that can result in degraded paper
handling.
Recommended Paper
To ensure the best print quality and feed reliability, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb) xerographic paper. Business papers designed for general business use may also
provide acceptable print quality.
Always print several samples before buying large quantities of any type of print media. When choosing any print media, consider the weight, fiber content, and
color.
Use only paper able to withstand these temperatures without discoloring, bleeding, or releasing hazardous emissions. Check with the paper manufacturer or
vendor to determine whether the paper you have chosen is acceptable for laser printers.
Unacceptable Paper
The following papers are not recommended for use with the printer:
l
Chemically treated papers used to make copies without carbon paper, also known as carbonless papers, carbonless copy paper (CCP), or no carbon
required (NCR) paper
l
Preprinted papers with chemicals that may contaminate the printer
l
Preprinted papers that can be affected by the temperature in the printer fuser
l
Preprinted papers that require a registration (the precise print location on the page) greater than
forms
l
Coated papers (erasable bond), synthetic papers, thermal papers
l
Rough-edged, rough or heavily textured surface papers, or curled papers
l
Recycled papers containing more than 25% post-consumer waste that do not meet DIN 19 309
l
Recycled paper having a weight less than 60 g/m2 (16 lb)
l
Multiple-part forms or documents
0.09 in., such as optical character recognition (OCR)
Selecting Paper
Proper paper loading helps prevent jams and ensures trouble-free printing.
To help avoid jams or poor print quality:
l
Always use new, undamaged paper.
l
Before loading paper, know the recommended print side of the paper you are using. This information is usually indicated on the paper package.
l
Do not use paper that you have cut or trimmed yourself.
l
Do not mix print media sizes, weights, or types in the same source. Mixing results in jams.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
l
Do not use coated papers.
l
Remember to change the paper size setting when using a source that does not support auto size sensing.
l
Do not remove trays while a job is printing or Busy is displayed on the operator panel.
l
Ensure the paper is properly loaded in the source.
l
l
Before purchasing large quantities of paper, it is recommended that initially a small quantity be purchased, and tested in the printer to verify suitable
results.
Flex paper back and forth. Do not fold or crease the paper. Straighten the edges on a level surface.
Selecting Preprinted Forms and Letterhead
Use the following guidelines when selecting preprinted forms and letterhead paper for the printer:
l
Use long grain paper for best results.
l
Use only forms and letterhead printed using an offset lithographic or engraved printing process.
l
Choose papers that absorb ink but do not bleed.
l
Avoid papers with rough or heavily textured surfaces.
Use papers printed with heat-resistant inks designed for use in xerographic copiers. The ink must withstand temperatures up to 180° C (356° F) without
melting or releasing hazardous emissions. Use inks that are not affected by the resin in toner or the silicone in the fuser. Oxidation-set or oil-based inks
should meet these requirements; latex inks might not. If you are in doubt, contact your paper supplier.
Preprinted papers, such as letterhead, must be able to withstand temperatures up to 180° C (356° F) without melting or releasing hazardous emissions.

Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine if the preprinted letterhead you have chosen is acceptable for laser printers.
Page orientation is important when printing on letterhead. Use the following table for help when loading letterhead in the print media sources.

Selecting Prepunched Paper
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
Prepunched paper brands can differ in the number and placement of holes and in manufacturing techniques.
Use the following guidelines to select and use prepunched paper:
l
Test paper from several manufacturers before ordering and using large quantities of prepunched paper.
l
Paper should be punched at the paper manufacturer and not drilled into paper already packaged in a ream. Drilled paper can cause jams when multiple
sheets feed through the printer.
l
Prepunched paper could include more paper dust than standard paper. Your printer may require more frequent cleaning, and feed reliability may not be
as good as that of standard paper.
Transparencies
Try samples of any transparencies you are considering using with the printer before buying large quantities:
l
Use transparencies designed specifically for laser printers. Transparencies must be able to withstand temperatures up to 195° C (383° F) without
melting, discoloring, offsetting or releasing hazardous emissions.
l
Avoid getting fingerprints on the transparencies, which could result in poor print quality.
l
Before loading transparencies, fan the stack to prevent sheets from sticking together.
l
Transparencies are supported in Multi-purpose Feeder only.
Selecting Transparencies
The printer can print directly on to transparencies designed for use in laser printers. Print quality and durability depend on the transparency used. Always print
samples on the transparencies you are considering before buying large quantities.
Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine whether your transparencies are compatible with laser printers that heat transparencies up to 195° C
(383° F). Use only transparencies that are able to withstand these temperatures without melting, discoloring, offsetting, or releasing hazardous emissions.
Envelopes
Envelopes are supported in Multi-purpose Feeder only. Try a sample of any envelopes you are considering using with the printer before buying large
quantities. See "Using the Multi-purpose Feeder" for instructions on loading an envelope.
When printing on envelopes:
l
l
To achieve the best possible print quality, use only high-quality envelopes that are designed for use in laser printers.
For best performance, use envelopes made from 75 g/m2 (20 lb bond) paper. You can use up to 90 g/m2 (24 lb bond) weight for the Multi-purpose
Feeder with cotton content 25 percent or less.
l
Use only new, undamaged envelopes.
l
For best performance and to minimize jams, do not use envelopes that:
l
¡
Have excessive curl or twist
¡
Are stuck together or damaged in any way
¡
Contain windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, or embossing
¡
Have metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars
¡
Have an interlocking design
¡
Have postage stamps attached
¡
Have any exposed adhesive when the flap is in the sealed or closed position
¡
Have nicked edges or bent corners
¡
Have rough, cockle, or laid finishes
Use envelopes that can withstand temperatures up to 195° C (383° F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions. If
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
you have any doubts about the envelopes you are considering using, check with the envelope supplier.
l
l
Adjust the width guide to fit the width of the envelopes.
Load an envelope with the flap side down and with the stamp area on the top left side. The end of the envelope with the stamp area enters the Multipurpose Feeder first.
See "Using the Multi-purpose Feeder" for instructions on loading an envelope.
NOTE: A combination of high humidity (over 60%) and high printing temperatures may seal the envelopes.
Labels
Your printer can print on many labels designed for use with laser printers. These labels are supplied in letter-, A4-, and legal-size sheets. Label adhesives, face
sheet (printable stock), and topcoats must be able to withstand temperatures up to 195° C (383° F) and pressure up to 25 pounds per square inch (psi). You
can load one label sheet at a time in the Multi-purpose Feeder.
Try a sample of any label you are considering using with the printer before purchasing a large quantity:
l
Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam. Partial sheets also contaminate your printer and your
cartridge with adhesive, and could void your printer and cartridge warranties.
l
Use labels that can withstand temperatures up to 195° C (383° F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.
l
Do not print within 0.04 in. (1 mm) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die-cuts of the label.
l
Do not use label sheets that have adhesive up to the edge of the sheet. We recommend zone coating of the adhesive at least 0.04 in. (1 mm) away
from edges. Adhesive material contaminates your printer and could void your warranty.
l
If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, a 0.125-in. (3-mm) strip should be removed on the leading and driver edge, and replaced with a non-oozing
adhesive.
l
Remove a 0.125-in. (3-mm) strip from the leading edge to prevent labels from peeling inside the printer.
l
Portrait orientation is preferred, especially when printing bar codes.
l
Do not use labels that have exposed adhesive.
Card Stock
Card stock is single ply and has a large array of properties, such as moisture content, thickness, and texture, that can significantly affect print quality. See
"Identifying Print Media Sources and Specifications" for information on the preferred weight and grain direction of print media.
Try a sample of any card stock you are considering using with the printer before purchasing a large quantity:
l
Be aware that preprinting, perforation, and creasing can significantly affect the print quality causing print media handling or jamming problems.
l
Avoid using card stock that may release hazardous emissions when heated.
l
l
Do not use preprinted card stock manufactured with chemicals that may contaminate the printer. Preprinting introduces semi-liquid and volatile
components into the printer.
We recommend the use of long grain card stock.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
Storing Print Media
Use the following guidelines for proper print media storage. These help avoid print media feeding problems and uneven print quality:
l
For best results, store print media in an environment where the temperature is approximately 21° C (70° F) and the relative humidity is 40%.
l
Store cartons of print media on a pallet or shelf, rather than directly on the floor.
l
When storing individual packages of print media out of the original carton, ensure they rest on a flat surface so the edges do not buckle or curl.
l
Do not place anything on top of the print media packages.
Identifying Print Media Sources and Specifications
The following tables provide information on standard and optional sources, including the print media sizes available from the paper size menu and supported
weights.

Load only one size of print material at a time in the Multi-purpose Feeder.
l
To prevent paper jams, do not add paper when there is still paper in the Multi-purpose Feeder. This also applies to other types of print materials.
l
Print materials should be loaded face up with the top edge going into the Multi-purpose Feeder first and be placed in the center of the tray.
l
To avoid paper jams and print quality problems, load only print materials listed in "Print Media Guidelines".
l
Flatten any curl on postcards, envelopes, and labels before loading them into the Multi-purpose Feeder.
l
To avoid paper jams when using print media 3 by 5 in. (76 by 127 mm) in the Multi-purpose Feeder, open the rear door for straight paper path.
l
Open rear door of printer when printing on transparencies. If not, they may tear when exiting the machine.
Using the High Capacity Feeder
To increase the paper handling capacity of your printer, install a High Capacity Feeder. A High Capacity Feeder can hold up to 2100 sheets of 75 g/m2 (20 lb)
plain paper.
To use many different types and sizes of paper, see "Identifying Print Media Sources and Specifications". See "Installing High Capacity Feeder" for installation

Tray Behavior
Tray Linking
Tray linking enables the automatic linking feature for trays. The print media in the multiple sources must be the same size and type. The printer automatically
links the trays: when one tray is empty, print media feeds from the next linked tray.
For example, if the same size and type of print media are loaded in tray 2 and tray 4, the printer selects print media from tray 2 until it becomes empty and
then automatically feeds print media from the next linked tray, tray 4.
By linking all trays (standard and optional), a single source with a capacity of up to 3,100 sheets is created.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
To link the trays, load only the same size and type of print media in each tray. Set the paper size and type for each tray.
To disable tray linking, choose either a unique paper size/ type for each tray or use the operator panel, as follows:

).
) to return to Standby mode.
Substitute Size
This setting is used to determine whether the printer can substitute another paper size when the requested paper size is not available in any of the input
trays. The Printer will substitute A4/Letter, A5/Statement, and B5/JIS B5. For example, if A4 is the requested paper size and there is no A4 paper in any of the
input source, then the printer will print on Letter size paper, if available.
When the substitute size is set to Off, it means no substitution is allowed for the requested paper size.
Configure MPF
Multi-purpose Feeder can be configured to behave in Tray mode or in Bypass mode by setting the Configure MPF menu in the operator Panel.
Bypass Mode
In this mode, the printer pulls the paper from the Multi-purpose Feeder first unless it is closed or empty. The Multi-purpose Feeder gets the highest priority
and pulls whatever material is in the Multi-purpose Feeder.
Tray Mode
In this mode, the Multi-purpose Feeder is treated as another papertray; the printer pulls paper from the tray that matches the size and type. First preference
goes to the default source.

User 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 tries 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.
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 destination path each time you print. If

Using Overlays What is an Overlay?
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. Creating a New Page Overlay

Printing Confidential and Stored Jobs
When you send a job to the printer, you can specify in the driver if you want the printer to hold the job in memory or hard disk. When you are ready to print
the job, you must go to the printer and use the operator panel menus to identify which job in the memory or hard disk you want to print. You can use this
function to print a confidential job (Secure Print), store a printing job (Store Print), or verify one copy before printing additional copies (Proof Print).
All confidential and stored jobs have a user name associated with them. To access confidential or stored jobs, select the type of job (confidential or stored)
and then select your user name from the user name list. Once you select your user name, you can either print all your confidential jobs or select an individual
print job. You can choose the number of copies for the print job or delete the print job.
NOTE: Only Confidential and Proof printing are available with the base memory; for all other stored jobs options, you need to install the hard disk.
Please refer to the section "Using Hard disk" for details.

are deleted only after they are printed or deleted by administrator.
Printing a Confidential Job
When you send a confidential job to the printer, you must enter a personal identification number (PIN) from the driver. The PIN must be four digits using the
numbers 0-9. The job is held in printer memory until you enter the same four-digit PIN from the operator panel and choose to either print or delete the job.
This ensures the job prints only when you are there to retrieve it. No one else using the printer can print the job without the PIN.

l
Poor print quality
l
Increased paper jams
l
Premature wear on the printer
CAUTION: Using paper that does not meet these specifications may cause problems requiring repairs. These repairs are not covered by the Dell
warranty or service agreements.
NOTE: Some paper may meet all of the guidelines in this guide and still not produce satisfactory results. This may be the result of improper handling,
unacceptable temperature and humidity levels, or other variables over which Dell has no control.
NOTE: Before purchasing large quantities of paper, ensure the paper meets the requirements specified in this User's Guide.

a. The printer supports a wide range of media sizes.
b. Capacity may vary depending on print materials weight and thickness, as well as environmental conditions.
NOTE: You may experience jams when using print materials with a length of less than 127 mm (5 in). For optimum performance, ensure that you store
and handle the paper correctly. Please refer to "Printer and Paper Storage Environment".
NOTE: You can use A4, Letter, Folio, Oficio, Legal-sized paper for duplex printing.
Guidelines for Using Paper
For best results, use conventional 75 g/m2 (20 lb) paper. Ensure the paper is of good quality, free of cuts, nicks, tears, spots, loose particles, dust, wrinkles,
voids, and curled or bent edges.
If you are unsure of what type of paper you are loading, such as bond or recycled paper, check the label on the package.
The following problems may cause print quality deviations, jamming, or even damage to the printer:

NOTE: Do not use letterhead paper printed with low-temperature inks, such as those used in some types of thermography.
NOTE: Do not use raised or embossed letterhead.
NOTE: The printer uses heat and pressure to fuse toner to the paper. Ensure that any colored paper or preprinted forms use inks that are compatible
with this fusing temperature (180° C or 356° F for 0.1 second).

Printer and Paper Storage Environment
Paper storage environmental conditions directly affect the feed operation.
Ideally, the printer and paper storage environment should be at or near room temperature not too dry or humid. Remember that paper is hygroscopic: it
absorbs and loses moisture rapidly.
Heat works with humidity to damage paper. Heat causes the moisture in paper to evaporate, while cold causes it to condense on the sheets. Heating systems
and air conditioners remove most of the humidity from a room. As paper is opened and used, it loses moisture, causing streaks and smudging. Humid weather
or water coolers can cause the humidity to increase in a room. As paper is opened and used, it absorbs any excess moisture causing light print and dropouts.
Also, as paper loses and gains moisture, it can become distorted. This can cause paper jams.
Care should be taken not to purchase more paper than can be used in a short time (about 3 months). Paper stored for long periods may experience heat and
moisture extremes, which can cause damage. Planning is important to prevent damage to large supplies of paper.
Unopened paper in sealed reams can remain stable for several months before use. Opened packages of paper have more potential for environment damage,
especially if they are not wrapped with a moisture-proof barrier.
The paper storage environment should be properly maintained to ensure optimum performance. The required condition is 20° C to 24° C (68° F to 75° F) with
a relative humidity of 4 percent to 55 percent. The following guidelines should be considered when evaluating the paper's storage environment:
l
Paper should be stored at or near room temperature.
l
The air should not be too dry or too humid.
l
The best way to store an opened ream of paper is to rewrap it tightly in its moisture-proof wrapping. If the printer environment is subject to extremes,
unwrap only the amount of paper to be used during the day's operation to prevent unwanted moisture changes.

The toner supply is low. You may be able to temporarily extend the toner
cartridge life. See "Redistributing Toner". If this does not improve the 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 "Paper Specifications".
If the entire page is light, the print resolution setting is too low or the toner
save mode is on. Adjust the print resolution and turn the toner save mode
off. See "Graphic Tab".
A combination of faded or smeared defects may indicate that the toner
cartridge needs cleaning. See "Cleaning the Interior".

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 "Printing a
cleaning sheet". After the printout, if you still have the same problems, install
a new toner cartridge. See "Replacing the Toner Cartridge".
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.
l
Misformed characters
If black vertical streaks appear on the page, the drum inside the toner
cartridge has probably been scratched. Install a new toner cartridge. See
"Replacing the Toner Cartridge".
If white vertical streaks appear on the page, the surface of the LSU part inside
the printer may be dirty. Clean the LSU (see "Cleaning the Interior").
If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of the page at even intervals:
l
Background scatter
A single sheet of paper may be defective. Try reprinting the job.
The moisture content of the paper is uneven or the paper has moist spots
on its surface. Try a different brand of paper. See "Paper Specifications".
The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing process can cause some areas to
reject toner. Try a different kind or brand of paper.
The toner cartridge may be defective. See "Vertical repetitive defects" on
the next page.
If these steps do not correct the problems, contact a service representative.
If the amount of background shading becomes unacceptable:
l
Toner smear
The paper may not meet specifications; for example, the paper is too moist
or too rough. See "Paper Specifications".
The transfer roller may be dirty. Clean the inside of your printer. See
"Cleaning the Interior".
The paper path may need cleaning. See "Cleaning the Interior".
l
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 the printer
properties.
If characters are improperly formed and produce hollow images, the paper
stock may be too slick. Try a different paper. See "Paper Specifications".
If characters are improperly formed and produce a wavy effect, the scanner
unit may need service. For service, contact a service representative.
Ensure the paper is loaded properly.

Ensure that 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, refer to "Add new printer wizard" to set up your device.
Ensure that the printed has 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 OK button. Normal
operation of the printer should then be restored. The "stopped" status might be
activated when some problems in printing occurred.
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 the mfp port while printing, the abrupt termination of the driver
keeps the port locked and-therefore, unavailable for subsequent print jobs. If this
situation occurres, please, try to release the mfp port.
