Printing is slow.
Simultaneous use of two or more application software programs.

The printed image is light and
uneven.
The paper is loaded so that printing takes place on the back side of the paper.
→ Some paper types have a front and back side. If the paper is loaded so that printing
takes place on the back side, toner will not adhere well to the paper and a good image
will not be obtained.

Manual
The printed image is dirty.
The printed image is skewed or it

CONTENTS
-
Paper is curled or damp.
→ Do not use curled or crimped paper. Replace with dry copy paper. During periods
when the machine is not used for a long time, remove the paper from the tray and
store it in a dark place in a bag to prevent moisture absorption.
-
You did not set sufficient margins in the paper settings of your application.
→ The top and bottom of the paper may be dirty if the margins are set outside of the
specified print quality area.
→ Set the margins in the software application within the specified print quality area.
-
The size of paper loaded in the tray is not the size specified in the printer driver.
→ Check if the "Paper Size" options suit the size of paper loaded in the tray.
→ If the "Fit to Page" setting is activated, make sure that the paper size selected from
the drop-down list of the "Fit To Paper Size" option is the same as the size of the
loaded paper.

You have not specified a suitable value for the "B/W Threshold" setting.
→ If you are scanning with a TWAIN-compliant application and are using "Red", "Green"
or "Blue" mode from "Light Source" menu, make sure that a suitable value is specified
for the "B/W Threshold" setting. A larger threshold value makes your output darker,
while a small threshold value makes it lighter. To adjust the threshold automatically,
click the "Auto Threshold" button on the "Image" tab of the "Custom Settings" screen.
-
The brightness and contrast settings are not suitable.
→ If you are scanning with a TWAIN-compliant application and the resulting image has
unsuitable brightness or contrast (for example it is too bright), click the "Auto
Brightness/Contrast Adjustment" button on the "Color" tab of the "Custom Settings"
screen. Click the "Brightness/Contrast" button to adjust the brightness and the
contrast while viewing the scanned output image on the screen. If you are scanning
with a WIA-compliant application or the "Scanner and Camera Wizard", click "Adjust
the quality of the scanned picture" or the "Custom settings" button, and adjust the
brightness and contrast in the screen that appears.

If scanning is not possible, shut down your computer, turn off the machine's
power switch, and unplug the machine's power cord. Next, start your computer,
restore power to the machine, and try scanning again. If scanning is still not
possible, check the following items.

Your application is not TWAIN/WIA compliant.
→ If your application is not TWAIN/WIA compliant, scanning will not be possible. Make
sure your application is TWAIN/WIA compliant.
-
You have not specified all scanning preferences appropriately.
→ Scanning a large area in full color at high resolution results in a large amount of data
and extended scanning times. The scanning preferences should be set appropriately
for the type of original to be scanned, i.e., Web page (monitor), Photo, FAX, or OCR.

Your computer does not meet the system requirements for the USB 2.0 interface
(Hi-Speed mode).
→ See "System requirements for USB 2.0 (Hi-Speed mode)" in the Operation Manual to
