•
Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one
flap that folds over to seal must use adhesives compatible with
the machine’s fusing temperature for 0.1 second (about 170°C
(338 °F)). 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.
•
•
Must withstand the machine’s fusing temperature.
•
Place them on a flat surface after removing them from the
machine.
•
Do not leave unused transparencies in the paper tray for long.
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.
•

•
Do not use transparencies that separate from the backing sheet.
-
•
To prevent transparencies from sticking to each other, do not let
the printed sheets stack up as they are being printed out.
Curl: 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.
Labels
•
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 machine components.
•
Do not run a sheet of labels through the machine more than
once. The adhesive backing is designed for only a single pass
through the machine.
•
Do not use labels that are separating from the backing sheet or
are wrinkled, bubbled, or otherwise damaged.
To avoid damaging the machine, use only labels designed for use in
laser printers.
•
When selecting labels, consider the following factors:
-
Adhesives: Should be stable at your machine’s fusing
temperature. Check your machine’s specifications to view the
fusing temperature (about 170°C (338°F)).
-
Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing
between them. Labels can peel off sheets that have spaces
between the labels, causing serious jams.

Preprinted paper
When loading preprinted paper, the printed side should be facing up
with an uncurled edge at the front. If you experience problems with
paper feeding, turn the paper around. Note that print quality is not
guaranteed.
•
In the software application, set margins at least 6.4 mm (0.25
inches) away from the edges of the material.
•
Must be printed with heat-resistant ink that will not melt,
vaporize, or release hazardous emissions when subjected to the
machine’s fusing temperature for 0.1 second (about 170°C
(338°F)).
•
Must be non-flammable and should not adversely affect machine
rollers.
•
Before you load preprinted paper, verify that the ink on the paper
is dry. During the fusing process, wet ink can come off preprinted
paper, reducing print quality.

it in the best printing condition and use your machine longer.
• Cleaning the cabinet of the machine with cleaning
materials containing large amounts of alcohol, solvents, or
other strong substances can discolor or distort the
cabinet.
• If your machine or the surrounding area is contaminated
with toner, we recommend you use a cloth or tissue
dampened with water to clean it. If you use a vacuum
cleaner, toner blows in the air and might be harmful to
you.

By selecting the correct media types, most paper jams can be avoided. To avoid paper jams, refer to the following guidelines:
•
Ensure that the adjustable guides are positioned correctly (see "Tray overview" on page 27).
•
Do not overload the tray. Ensure that the paper level is below the paper capacity mark on the inside of the tray.
•
Do not remove paper from the tray while your machine is printing.
•
Flex, fan, and straighten paper before loading.
•
Do not use creased, damp, or highly curled paper.
•
Do not mix paper types in a tray.
•
Use only recommended print media (see "Print media specifications" on page 79).

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 letterhead paper. Rather than using preprinted
letterhead, you can create an overlay containing exactly the 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 machine:
just print the letterhead overlay on your document.
To use a page overlay, you must create a new page overlay containing your logo or image.
• The overlay document size must be the same as the document you print with the overlay. Do not create
an overlay with a watermark.
• The resolution of the overlay document must be the same as that of the document you will print with
the overlay.

Storing the toner cartridge
5. Maintenance
Toner cartridges contain components that are sensitive to light,
temperature and humidity. Samsung suggests users follow these
recommendations to ensure optmal performance, highest quality,
and longest life from your new Samsung toner cartridge.
Store this cartridge in the same environment in which the printer will
be used. This should be in controlled temperature and humidity
conditions. The toner cartridge should remain in its original and
unopened package until installation – if original packaging is not
available, cover the top opening of the cartridge with paper and
store in a dark cabinet.
Opening the cartridge package prior to use dramatically shortens its
useful shelf and operating life. Do not store on the floor. If the toner
cartridge is removed from the printer, follow the instructions below
to store the toner cartridge properly.
•
Store the cartridge inside the protective bag from the original
package.
•
Store lying flat (not standing on end) with the same side facing
up as if it were installed in the machine.
•
Do not store consumables in any of the following conditions:
-
Temperature greater than 40°C (104°F).
-
Humidity range not less than 20% and not greater than 80%.
-
An environment with extreme changes in humidity or
temperature.
-
Direct sunlight or room light.
-
Dusty places.
-
A car for a long period of time.
-
An environment where corrosive gases are present.
-
An environment with salty air.
59
1
Handling instructions
•
Do not touch the surface of the photoconductive drum in the
cartridge.
•
Do not expose the cartridge to unnecessary vibrations or shock.
•
Never manually rotate the drum, especially in the reverse
direction; this can cause internal damage and toner spillage.
2
Toner cartridge usage
Samsung Electronics does not recommend or approve the use of
non-Samsung brand toner cartridges in your printer including
generic, store brand, refilled, or remanufactured toner cartridges.
Storing the toner cartridge
Samsung’s printer warranty does not cover damage to the
machine caused by the use of a refilled, remanufactured, or
non-Samsung brand toner cartridges.
3
Estimated cartridge life
Estimated cartridge life (the life of the toner cartridge yield) depends
on the amount of toner that print jobs require. The actual print yield
may vary depending on the print density of the pages you print on,
operating environment, printing interval, media type and/or media
size. For example, if you print a lot of graphics, the consumption of
the toner is higher and you may need to change the cartridge more
often.
5. Maintenance
60
Tips for moving & storing your machine
•
When moving the machine, do not tilt or turn it upside down.
Otherwise, the inside of the machine may be contaminated by
toner, which can cause damage to the machine or reduce print
quality.
•
When moving the machine, make sure at least two people are
holding the machine securely.

Suggested Solutions
If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of the page at even intervals:
• The toner cartridge may be damaged. If you still have the same problem, remove the toner cartridge and, install

• Parts of the machine 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
A
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 in Printing Preferences. Ensure the correct paper type is selected. For example: If

Common Linux problems
Condition
The machine does not
print.
Suggested solutions
• Check if the printer driver is installed in your system. Open Unified Driver Configurator and switch to the
Printers tab in the Printers configuration window to look at the list of available machines. Make sure that
your machine is displayed on the list. If not, open Add new printer wizard to set up your device.
• Check if the machine is started. Open Printers configuration and select your machine from the printers list.
Look at the description in the Selected printer pane. If its status contains Stopped, press the Start button.
Normal operation of the machine should be restored. The “stopped” status might be activated when some
problems in printing occur.
• Check if your application has special print options such as “-oraw”. If “-oraw” is specified in the command line
parameter, then remove it to print properly. For Gimp front-end, select “print” -> “Setup printer” and edit the
command line parameter in the command item.
The machine does not
print whole pages, and
output is printed on half
the page.
It is a known problem that occurs when a color machine is used on version 8.51 or earlier of Ghostscript, 64-bit
Linux OS, and has been reported to bugs.ghostscript.com as Ghostscript Bug 688252.The problem is solved in
AFPL Ghostscript v. 8.52 or above. Download the latest version of AFPL Ghostscript from http://sourceforge.net/
projects/ghostscript/ and install it to solve this problem.
“Cannot open port device
file” error message
appears when printing a
document.
Avoid changing print job parameters (e.q., via LPR GUI) 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 port while printing, the abrupt termination of the driver keeps the port locked
and unavailable for subsequent print jobs. If this situation occurs, try to release the port by selecting Release port
in the Port configuration window.

ADF
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.
An Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is a scanning unit that will
automatically feed an original sheet of paper so that the machine
can scan some amount of the paper at once.
802.11
AppleTalk
802.11 is a set of standards for wireless local area network (WLAN)
communication, developed by the IEEE LAN/MAN Standards
Committee (IEEE 802).
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.
802.11b/g/n
802.11b/g/n can share same hardware and use the 2.4 GHz band.
802.11b supports bandwidth up to 11 Mbps, 802.11n supports
bandwidth up to 150 Mbps. 802.11b/g/n devices may occasionally
suffer interference from microwave ovens, cordless telephones, and
Bluetooth devices.

connects wireless communication devices together on wireless local
area networks (WLAN), and acts as a central transmitter and receiver
of WLAN radio signals.
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.
BMP
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.
Glossary
97
BOOTP
Coverage
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.
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.
CCD

exchange data between disparate applications. The file format, as it
is used in Microsoft Excel, has become a de facto standard
throughout the industry, even among non-Microsoft platforms.
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 machine.
CSV
DADF
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.
A Duplex Automatic Document Feeder (DADF) is a scanning unit that
will automatically feed and turn over an original sheet of paper so
that the machine can scan on both sides of the paper.
Default
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 machine.
The value or setting that is in effect when taking a printer out of its
box state, reset, or initialized.

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.
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.
DIMM
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.
Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM), a small circuit board that holds
memory. DIMM stores all the data within the machine like printing
data, received fax data.
DLNA
The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a standard that allows
devices on a home network to share information with each other
across the network.

Duty Cycle
Ethernet
Duty cycle is the page quantity which does not affect printer
performance for a month. Generally the printer has the lifespan
limitation such as pages per year. The lifespan means the average
capacity of print-outs, usually within the warranty period. For
example, if the duty cycle is 48,000 pages per month assuming 20
working days, a printer limits 2,400 pages a day.
Ethernet is a frame-based computer networking technology for local
area networks (LANs). It defines wiring and signaling for the physical
layer, and frame formats and protocols for the media access control
(MAC)/data link layer of the OSI model. Ethernet is mostly
standardized as IEEE 802.3. It has become the most widespread LAN
technology in use during the 1990s to the present.
ECM

networking. It was included in the original Macintosh (1984) and is
now deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP networking.
FDI
Emulation
Emulation is a technique of one machine obtaining the same results
as another.
An emulator duplicates the functions of one system with a different
system, so that the second system behaves like the first system.
Emulation focuses on exact reproduction of external behavior,
which is in contrast to simulation, which concerns an abstract model
of the system being simulated, often considering its internal state.
Foreign Device Interface (FDI) is a card installed inside the machine
to allow a third party device such as a coin operated device or a card
reader. Those devices allow the pay-for-print service on your
machine.

specified, and then the message text is transferred. It is a clientserver protocol, where the client transmits an email message to the
server.
The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and the Internet Protocol
(IP); the set of communications protocols that implement the
protocol stack on which the Internet and most commercial networks
run.
SSID
Transmission Confirmation Report (TCR) provides details of each
transmission such as job status, transmission result and number of
pages sent. This report can be set to print after each job or only after
failed transmissions.
Service Set Identifier (SSID) is a name of a wireless local area network
(WLAN). All wireless devices in a WLAN use the same SSID in order to
communicate with each other. The SSIDs are case-sensitive and have
a maximum length of 32 characters.
Subnet Mask
The subnet mask is used in conjunction with the network address to
determine which part of the address is the network address and
which part is the host address.
TCR
TIFF
Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) is a variable-resolution bitmapped
image format. TIFF describes image data that typically come from
scanners. TIFF images make use of tags, keywords defining the
characteristics of the image that is included in the file. This flexible
and platform-independent format can be used for pictures that have
been made by various image processing applications.

Toner Cartridge
URL
A kind of bottle or container used in a machine like a printer which
contains toner. Toner is a powder used in laser printers and
photocopiers, which forms the text and images on the printed paper.
Toner can be fused by by a combination of heat/pressure from the
fuser, causing it to bind to the fibers in the paper.
Uniform Resource Locator (URL) is the global address of documents
and resources on the Internet. The first part of the address indicates
what protocol to use, the second part specifies the IP address or the
domain name where the resource is located.
USB
TWAIN
An industry standard for scanners and software. By using a TWAINcompliant scanner with a TWAIN-compliant program, a scan can be
initiated from within the program. It is an image capture API for
Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh operating systems.
Universal Serial Bus (USB) is a standard that was developed by the
USB Implementers Forum, Inc., to connect computers and
peripherals. Unlike the parallel port, USB is designed to concurrently
connect a single computer USB port to multiple peripherals.
Watermark
UNC Path
Uniform Naming Convention (UNC) is a standard way to access
network shares in Window NT and other Microsoft products. The
format of a UNC path is: \\<servername>\<sharename>\<Additional
directory>
A watermark is a recognizable image or pattern in paper that
appears lighter when viewed by transmitted light. Watermarks were
first introduced in Bologna, Italy in 1282; they have been used by
papermakers to identify their product, and also on postage stamps,
currency, and other government documents to discourage
counterfeiting.

WEP
WPS
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a security protocol specified in IEEE
802.11 to provide the same level of security as that of a wired LAN.
WEP provides security by encrypting data over radio so that it is
protected as it is transmitted from one end point to another.
The Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a standard for establishing a
wireless home network. If your wireless access point supports WPS,
you can configure the wireless network connection easily without a
computer.
WIA
XPS
Windows Imaging Architecture (WIA) is an imaging architecture that
is originally introduced in Windows Me and Windows XP. A scan can
be initiated from within these operating systems by using a WIAcompliant scanner.
XML Paper Specification (XPS) is a specification for a Page
Description Language (PDL) and a new document format, which has
benefits for portable document and electronic document,
developed by Microsoft. It is an XML-based specification, based on a
new print path and a vector-based device-independent document
format.
WPA
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is a class of systems to secure wireless
(Wi-Fi) computer networks, which was created to improve upon the
security features of WEP.
WPA-PSK
WPA-PSK (WPA Pre-Shared Key) is special mode of WPA for small
business or home users. A shared key, or password, is configured in
the wireless access point (WAP) and any wireless laptop or desktop
devices. WPA-PSK generates a unique key for each session between
a wireless client and the associated WAP for more advanced security.
