SELECTING PRINT MEDIA
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:
• Poor print quality
• Increased paper jams
• Premature wear on the printer.
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:
• The type, size and weight of the print media for your printer are
described later in this section.
• Desired outcome: The print media you choose should be appropriate for
your project.
• Brightness: Some print media are whiter than others and produce
sharper, more vibrant images.
• Surface smoothness: The smoothness of the print media affects how
crisp the printing looks on the paper.
•
•
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 Dell has no control.
Before purchasing large quantities of print media, ensure that it
meets the requirements specified in this user’s guide.
Using print media that does not meet these specifications may cause
problems, requiring repairs. Such repairs are not covered by Dell’s
warranty or service agreements.
Ensure that you do not use the inkjet photo paper with this printer. It
could cause damage to the printer.
Dust on the ADF glass may cause black lines on the printout. Always
keep the ADF glass clean.
Be careful not to put your hands in the ADF roller. You may get hurt.

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 or jamming may occur.
- Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should
lie flat with less than 6 mm 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.
Ensure that the seam at both ends of the envelope
extends all the way to the corner of the envelope.

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 for 0.1 second. Check your printer’s
specification to view the fusing temperature, see
"Printer specifications" on page 73. 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 from the edges of the envelope.
Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s
seams meet.
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 your printer’s fusing temperature. Check
your printer’s specification to know the fusing
temperature, see "General specifications" on
page 72.
- 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 of curl in any direction.
- Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles,
bubbles, or other indications of separation.
Ensure 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.
Do not print on media smaller than 76 mm wide or
356 mm long.
In the software application, set margins at least
6.4 mm away from the edges of the material.
MEDIA TYPE
Preprinted
paper
GUIDELINES
•

•
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 for 0.1 second. Check your printer’s
specification to know the fusing temperature, see
"General specifications" on page 72.
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.
4. Slide the paper length guide until it lightly touches the end of the paper
stack. Squeeze the paper width guide and slide it to the edge of the
paper stack without causing it to bend.
For paper smaller than Letter-sized, return the paper guides to their
original positions and adjust the paper length guide and paper width
guide.
Using photographic paper or coated paper may cause problems,
requiring repairs. Such repairs are not covered by Dell’s warranty or
service agreements.
CHANGING THE SIZE OF THE PAPER IN THE
PAPER TRAY
To load longer sizes of paper, such as Legal-sized paper, you need to
adjust the paper guides to extend the paper tray.
To change the tray 1 size to other size, you must adjust the paper length
guide properly.
1. Pull the tray 1 out of the printer. Open the paper cover and remove
paper from the tray 1 if necessary.
2. Pressing and unlatching the guide lock in the top of the tray, pull the tray
out manually.
If the paper that you need to print is shorter than length 222 mm
(8.74 inches), press and unlatch the guide lock in the tray, push the tray
in manually. Adjust the paper length guide and paper width guide.
•
•
Do not push the paper width guides far enough to cause the
materials to warp.
If you do not adjust the paper width guides, it may cause paper
jams.
3. Load paper into the tray.

Receiving faxes using DRPD mode
Distinctive Ring is a telephone company service which enables an user to
use a single telephone line to answer several different telephone numbers.
The particular number someone uses to call you is identified by different
ringing patterns, which consist of various combinations of long and short
ringing sounds. This feature is often used by answering services who
answer telephones for many different clients and need to know which
number someone is calling in on to properly answer the phone.
Using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD) feature, your fax
machine can learn the ring pattern you designate to be answered by the fax
machine. Unless you change it, this ringing pattern will continue to be
recognized and answered as a fax call, and all other ringing patterns will be
forwarded to the extension telephone or answering printer plugged into the
EXT socket. You can easily suspend or change DRPD at any time.
Before using the DRPD option, Distinctive Ring service must be installed on
your telephone line by the telephone company. To set up DRPD, you will
need another telephone line at your location, or someone available to dial
your fax number from outside.
To set up the DRPD mode:
1. Press Fax.
2. Press Menu until Fax Setup appears on the bottom line of the display
and press OK.
3. Press the left/right arrow until Receiving appears and press OK.

DRPD must be set up again if you re-assign your fax number, or
connect the printer to another telephone line.
After DRPD has been set up, call your fax number again to verify
that the printer answers with a fax tone. Then have a call placed to
a different number assigned to that same line to be sure the call is
forwarded to the extension telephone or answering printer plugged
into the EXT socket.

MAINTAINING THE CARTRIDGE
3. Holding both handles on the toner cartridge, thoroughly rock it from side
to side to evenly distribute the toner.
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 it is ready for
use.
• Do not refill the toner cartridge. The printer warranty does not cover
damage caused by using a refilled cartridge.
• Store toner cartridges in the same environment as your printer.
Expected cartridge life
The life of the toner cartridge yield depends on the amount of toner that print
jobs require. 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.
If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry
cloth and wash it in cold water. Do not use hot water as it sets the
toner onto the fabric.
4. Slide the four toner cartridges back into the printer.
Redistributing toner
When a toner is low, faded or light areas may appear. It is possible that
colored images may be printed with incorrect colors due to flawed mixing of
toner colors when one of the colored toner cartridges is low on toner. You
can temporarily improve print quality by redistributing the toner.
• The toner-related message saying that the toner is low may appear on
the display.
1. Using the handle, completely open the front cover.
5. Close the front cover. Ensure that the cover is securely latched.
If the front cover is not completely closed, the printer will not
operate.

cartridges from the printer.
REPLACING THE TONER CARTRIDGE
The printer uses four colors and has a different toner cartridge for each one:
yellow (Y), magenta (M), cyan (C), and black (K).
• The status LED and the toner-related message on the display indicates
which toner cartridge should be replaced.
• Incoming faxes are saved in memory.
Also, the Dell Toner Management System™ program window appears on
the computer indicating you to replace the cartridge.
At this stage, the toner cartridge needs to be replaced. Check the type of
toner cartridge for your printer. (See "Ordering supplies" on page 71.)
1. Turn the printer off, then wait a few minutes for the printer to cool.
2. Using the handle, completely open the front cover.

SUGGESTED SOLUTIONS
If faded areas, generally rounded, occur
randomly on the page:
• 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 "Selecting print media" on page 24.
• The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing
processes can cause some areas to reject
toner. Try a different kind or brand of
paper.
• Change the printer option and try again. Go
to printer properties, click Paper tab, and
set type to Thick Paper. Refer to the
Software section for details.
If these steps do not correct the problem,
contact a service representative.
White spots appear on the page:
• The paper is too rough and a lot of dirt from
the paper falls to the inner devices within
the printer, which means the transfer belt
may be dirty. Clean the inside of your
printer. Contact a service representative.
• The paper path may need cleaning.
Contact a service representative.
CONDITION
Vertical repetitive
defects
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. After the printout, if you still have
the same problems, remove the toner
cartridge and install a new one.
See "Replacing the toner cartridge" on
page 53.
• 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
Background scatter results from bits of toner
randomly 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 the printer properties.
A
If black vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The drum inside the toner cartridge has
probably been scratched. Remove the
toner cartridge and install a new one.
See "Replacing the toner cartridge" on
page 53.
If white vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The surface of the LSU part inside the
printer may be dirty. Clean the LSU,
contact a service representative.
Misformed
characters
If the amount of background shading becomes
unacceptable:
• Change to a lighter weight paper.
See "Selecting print media" on page 24.
• 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 "Replacing the toner
cartridge" on page 53.

glossary
The following glossary helps you get familiar with the product by
understanding the terminologies commonly used with printing as well
as mentioned in this user's guide.
ADF
An Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is a mechanism that will
automatically feed an original sheet of paper so that the printer can scan
some amount of the paper at once.
DADF
A Duplex Automatic Document Feeder (DADF) is a mechanism that will
automatically feed and flip over an original sheet of paper so that the
printer can scan on both sides of the paper.
Default
The value or setting that is in effect when taking a printer out of its box
state, reset, or initialized.
AppleTalk
DHCP
AppleTalk is a proprietary suite of protocols developed by Apple, Inc for
computer networking. It was included in the original Macintosh (1984)
and is now deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP networking.
A Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a client-server
networking protocol. A DHCP server provides configuration parameters
specific to the DHCP client host requesting, generally, information
required by the client host to participate on an IP network. DHCP also
provides a mechanism for allocation of IP addresses to client hosts.
BIT Depth
A computer graphics term describing the number of bits used to
represent the color of a single pixel in a bitmapped image. Higher color
depth gives a broader range of distinct colors. As the number of bits
increases, the number of possible colors becomes impractically large for
a color map. 1-bit color is commonly called as monochrome or black and
white.
DIMM
BMP
The Domain Name Server (DNS) is a system that stores information
associated with domain names in a distributed database on networks,
such as the Internet.
A bitmapped graphics format used internally by the Microsoft Windows
graphics subsystem (GDI), and used commonly as a simple graphics file
format on that platform.
BOOTP
Bootstrap Protocol. A network protocol used by a network client to
obtain its IP address automatically. This is usually done in the bootstrap
process of computers or operating systems running on them. The
BOOTP servers assign the IP address from a pool of addresses to each
client. BOOTP enables 'diskless workstation' computers to obtain an IP
address prior to loading any advanced operating system.
CCD
Charge Coupled Device (CCD) is a hardware which enables the scan
job. CCD Locking mechanism is also used to hold the CCD module to
prevent any damage when you move the printer.
Collation
Collation is a process of printing a multiple-copy job in sets. When
collation is selected, the device prints an entire set before printing
additional copies.
Control Panel
A control panel is a flat, typically vertical, area where control or
monitoring instruments are displayed. They are typically found in front of
the printer.
Coverage
It is the printing term used for a toner usage measurement on printing.
For example, 5% coverage means that an A4 sided paper has about 5%
image or text on it. So, if the paper or original has complicated images or
lots of text on it, the coverage will be higher and at the same time, a
toner usage will be as much as the coverage.
CSV
Comma Separated Values (CSV). A type of file format, CSV is used to
exchange data between disparate applications. The file format, as it is
used in Microsoft Excel, has become a pseudo standard throughout the
industry, even among non-Microsoft platforms.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM), a small circuit board that holds
memory. DIMM stores all the data within the printer like printing data,
received fax data.
DNS
Dot Matrix Printer
A dot matrix printer refers to a type of computer printer with a print head
that runs back and forth on the page and prints by impact, striking an
ink-soaked cloth ribbon against the paper, much like a typewriter.
DPI
Dots Per Inch (DPI) is a measurement of resolution that is used for
scanning and printing. Generally, higher DPI results in a higher
resolution, more visible detail in the image, and a larger file size.
DRPD
Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection. Distinctive Ring is a telephone
company service which enables a user to use a single telephone line to
answer several different telephone numbers.

Dear ABC
Regards
WORLD BEST
An overlay is text and/or images stored in the computer’s 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 can use
your printer to print the letterhead overlay on your document.
