you are using a cord which is longer than 2 m with 110 V machine, then it should
be 16 AWG1 or bigger.
When using this machine, these basic safety precautions should always be followed to
reduce risk of fire, electric shock and injury to people:
1
Read and understand all instructions.
18 Use only No.26 AWG* or larger telephone line cord.
2
Use common sense whenever operating electrical appliances.
19 SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
3
Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the machine and in the literature
accompanying the machine.
Laser Safety Statement
4
If an operating instruction appears to conflict with safety information, heed the
safety information. You may have misunderstood the operating instruction. If you
cannot resolve the conflict, contact your sales or service representative for
assistance.
5
Unplug the machine from the AC wall socket and/or telephone jack before
cleaning. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners. Use only a damp cloth for
cleaning.
6
Do not place the machine on an unstable cart, stand or table. It may fall, causing
serious damage.
Never operate or service the printer with the protective cover removed from Laser/
Scanner assembly. The reflected beam, although invisible, can damage your eyes.
7
Your machine should never be placed on, near or over a radiator, heater, air
conditioner or ventilation duct.
When using this product, these basic safety precautions should always be followed to
reduce risk of fire, electric shock, and injury to persons:
8
Do not allow anything to rest on the power. Do not locate your machine where the
cords will be abused by persons walking on them.
9

the best scanning and/or faxing (usually the flatbed-type machine). In this case,
replace the cover after placing document on the scan glass, by holding and
moving it down slowly until it seats on its location.
13 To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble the machine. Take it to a
qualified service technician when repair work is required. Opening or removing
covers may expose you to dangerous voltages or other risks. Incorrect reassembly
could cause electric shock when the unit is subsequently used.
14 Unplug the machine from the telephone jack, PC and AC wall outlet and refer
servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions:
• When any part of the power cord, plug or connecting cable is damaged or frayed.
• If liquid has been spilled into the machine.
• If the machine has been exposed to rain or water.
• If the machine does not operate properly after instructions have been followed.
• If the machine has been dropped, or the cabinet appears damaged.
• If the machine exhibits a sudden and distinct change in performance.
Ozone Safety
During normal operation, this machine produces ozone. The ozone
produced does not present a hazard to the operator. However, it is
advisable that the machine be operated in a well ventilated area.
If you need additional information about ozone, please request your

Radio Frequency Emissions
FCC Information to the User
Ringer Equivalence Number
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions:
• This device may not cause harmful interference, and
• This device must accept any interference received, including interference that
may cause undesired operation.
The Ringer Equivalence Number and FCC Registration Number for this machine may
be found on the label located on the bottom or rear of the machine. In some instances
you may need to provide these numbers to the telephone company.
The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) is a measure of the electrical load placed on the
telephone line, and is useful for determining whether you have “overloaded” the line.
Installing several types of equipment on the same telephone line may result in problems
making and receiving telephone calls, especially ringing when your line is called. The
sum of all Ringer Equivalence Numbers of the equipment on your telephone line should
be less than five in order to assure proper service from the telephone company. In some
cases, a sum of five may not be usable on your line. If any of your telephone equipment
is not operating properly, you should immediately remove it from your telephone line, as
it may cause harm to the telephone network.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital
device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This
equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed
and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or

You should also know that:
• Your machine is not designed to be connected to a digital PBX system.
• If you intend to use a computer modem or fax modem on the same phone line as
your machine, you may experience transmission and reception problems with all the
equipment. It is recommended that no other equipment, except for a regular
telephone, share the line with your machine.
Replacing the Fitted Plug (for UK Only)
• If your area experiences a high incidence of lightning or power surges, we
recommend that you install surge protectors for both the power and the telephone
lines. Surge protectors can be purchased from your dealer or telephone and
electronic specialty stores.
IMPORTANT
The mains lead for this machine is fitted with a standard (BS 1363) 13 amp plug and has
a 13 amp fuse. When you change or examine the fuse, you must re-fit the correct 13
amp fuse. You then need to replace the fuse cover. If you have lost the fuse cover, do
not use the plug until you have another fuse cover.
• When programming emergency numbers and/or making test calls to emergency
numbers, use a non-emergency number to advise the emergency service dispatcher
of your intentions. The dispatcher will give you further instructions on how to actually
test the emergency number.
Please contact the people from you purchased the machine.
The 13 amp plug is the most widely used type in the UK and should be suitable.
However, some buildings (mainly old ones) do not have normal 13 amp plug sockets.
You need to buy a suitable plug adaptor. Do not remove the moulded plug.
• This machine may not be used on coin service or party lines.
• This machine provides magnetic coupling to hearing aids.
WARNING
• You may safely connect this equipment to the telephone network by means of a
standard modular jack, USOC RJ-11C.
If you cut off the moulded plug, get rid of it straight away.

site with corporate intranet access.
Configuring TCP/IP
Your machine can be set up with a variety of TCP/IP network information,
such as an IP address, a subnet mask, and a gateway. There are several
ways in which your machine can be assigned a TCP/IP address,
depending on your network.
• SyncThru™ Web Service: A web server embedded to your network
print server, which allows you to:
- Configure the network parameters necessary for the machine to
connect to various network environments.
- Customize printer, copy, and fax settings.
• Static addressing: A TCP/IP address is assigned manually by the
system administrator.
• Dynamic addressing via BOOTP/DHCP (default): A TCP/IP address is
assigned automatically by the server.
• SetIP: A utility program allowing you to select a network interface and
manually configure the addresses for use with the TCP/IP protocol.
For further details, refer to the user’s guide on the network utilities CD that

media
This chapter introduces you to how to load originals and print media into
your machine.
This chapter includes:
•
Loading originals
•
Selecting print media
•
Loading paper
•
Setting the paper size and type
•
Verifying an output location
Loading originals
You can use the scanner glass or ADF to load an original for copying,
scanning, and sending a fax.
On the scanner glass
Make sure that no originals are in the ADF. If an original is detected in the
ADF, the machine gives it priority over the original on the scanner glass.
To get the best scan quality, especially for colored or gray-scaled images,
use the scanner glass.
1
Notes
• Leaving the scanner lid open while copying may affect copy
quality and toner consumption.
• Dust on the scanner glass may cause black spots on the
printout. Always keep it clean.
Lift and open the scanner lid.
In the ADF
Using the ADF, you can load up to 30 sheets of paper (75 g/m2) for one
job.
When you use the ADF:
• Do not load paper smaller than 142 x 148 mm or larger than
216 x 356 mm.
• Do not attempt to load the following types of paper:
- carbon-paper or carbon-backed paper
- coated paper
- onion skin or thin paper
- wrinkled or creased paper
- curled or rolled paper
- torn paper
• Remove all staples and paper clips before loading.
• Make sure any glue, ink, or correction fluid on the paper is completely
dry before loading.
• Do not load originals that include different sizes or weights of paper.
• Do not load booklets, pamphlets, transparencies, or documents
having other unusual characteristics.
5.1
<Loading originals and print media>
To load an original into the ADF:
1
Selecting print media
Load the original face up into the ADF. Make sure that the bottom of
the original stack matches the paper size marked on the document
input tray.
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 machine. 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 machine.
Properties, such as weight, composition, grain, and moisture content, are
important factors that affect the machine’s performance and the output
quality. When you choose print materials, consider the following:
• Desired outcome: The print media you choose should be appropriate
for your project.
• Size: You can use any size media that fits easily within the paper
adjusters of the paper tray.
• Weight: Your machine supports print media weights as follows:
- 60 to 90 g/m2 bond for the tray
- 60 to 165 g/m2 bond for the manual tray
• Brightness: Some print media are whiter than others and produce
sharper, more vibrant images.
2
Adjust the document width guides to the paper size.
• Surface smoothness: The smoothness of the print media affects how
crisp the printing looks on the paper.
Notes
• 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 Samsung has no control.
• Before purchasing large quantities of print media, ensure that it
meets the requirements specified in this user’s guide.
Caution
Using print media that does not meet these specifications may
cause problems, requiring repairs. Such repairs are not covered
by Samsung’s warranty or service agreements.
Note
Dust on the ADF glass may cause black lines on the printout.
Always keep it clean.

Guidelines for selecting and storing print media
When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other print materials,
keep these guidelines in mind:
• Always use print media that conform with the specifications listed on
page 5.3.
• Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper can cause
paper jams and poor print quality.
• For the best print quality, use only high quality copier grade paper
specifically recommended for use in laser printers.
• Avoid using the following media types:
- Paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or a texture that is too
smooth or too rough
- Erasable bond paper
- Multi-paged paper
- Synthetic paper and thermally reactive paper
- Carbonless paper and tracing paper
Use of these types of paper could result in paper jams, chemical
smells, and damage to your machine.
• Store print media in its ream wrapper until you are ready to use it.
Place cartons on pallets or shelves, not on the floor. Do not place
heavy objects on top of the paper, whether it is packaged or
unpackaged. Keep it away from moisture or other conditions that can
cause it to wrinkle or curl.
• Store unused print media at temperatures between 15 °C and 30 °C.
The relative humidity should be between 10% and 70%.
• Store unused print media in a moisture-proof wrap, such as a plastic
container or bag, to prevent dust and moisture from contaminating
your paper.
• Load special media types one sheet at a time through the manual tray
to avoid paper jams.
• To prevent print media, such as transparencies and label sheets, from
sticking together, remove them as they print out.
Guidelines
• 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 machine 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.
• Be sure the seam at both ends of the envelope
extends all the way to the corner of the
envelope.
Acceptable
Unacceptable
• 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 of 180 °C for 0,1 second.
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.
Caution
If you print 20 envelopes in succession, the surface of the rear
cover may become hot. Please exercise caution.
5.4
<Loading originals and print media>
Media type
Guidelines
Transparencies
• To avoid damaging the machine, use only
transparencies designed for use in laser printers.
• Transparencies used in the machine must be
able to withstand 180 °C, the machine’s fusing
temperature.
• Place them on a flat surface after removing them
from the machine.
• Do not leave them in the paper tray for long
periods of time. 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.
• Ensure that transparencies are not wrinkled,
curled, or have any torn edges.
Labels
• To avoid damaging the machine, use only labels
designed for use in laser printers.
• When selecting labels, consider the following
factors:
- Adhesives: The adhesive material should be
stable at 180 °C, the machine’s fusing
temperature.
- 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.
• 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.

Preprinted
paper
Guidelines
• Letterhead must be printed with heat-resistant
ink that will not melt, vaporize, or release
hazardous emissions when subjected to the
machine’s fusing temperature of 180 °C for
0,1 second.
• 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.

Clean the cabinet of the machine with a soft lint-free cloth. You can
dampen the cloth slightly with water, but be careful not to let any water
drip onto or into the machine.
Cleaning the inside
During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles can
accumulate inside the machine. This buildup can cause print quality
problems, such as toner specks or smearing. Cleaning the inside of the
machine clears or reduces these problems.
1
Turn the machine off and unplug the power cord. Wait for the
machine to cool down.
2
Open the front cover and pull the toner cartridge out. Set it on a
clean flat surface.
Caution
While cleaning the inside of the machine, be careful not to touch
the transfer roller, located underneath the toner cartridge. Oil
from your fingers can cause print scan quality problems.

Maintaining the toner cartridge
Toner cartridge storage
To get the most from the toner cartridge, keep the following guidelines in
mind:
Cleaning the scan unit
Keeping the scan unit clean helps ensure the best possible copies. We
suggest that you clean the scan unit at the start of each day and during
the day, as needed.
• Do not remove the toner cartridge from its package until ready for use.
1
Slightly dampen a soft lint-free cloth or paper towel with water.
• Store toner cartridges in the same environment as your machine.
2
Open the scanner lid.
• To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it to light for
more than a few minutes.
• Do not refill the toner cartridge. The machine warranty does not cover
damage caused by using a refilled cartridge.
Expected cartridge yield
The toner cartridge yield depends on the amount of toner that print jobs
require. Average yield for a new toner cartridge is 3,000 standard pages in
accordance with ISO/IEC 19752 standard. (Average yield for the original
toner cartridge supplied with the machine is 1,500 standard pages.)
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.
12.3
<Maintenance>
Redistributing toner
4
When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life:
Hold the toner cartridge by the handle and slowly insert the cartridge
into the opening in the machine.
Tabs on the sides of the cartridge and corresponding grooves within
the machine will guide the cartridge into the correct position until it
locks into place completely.
• White streaks or light printing occurs.
• Toner Low appears on the display.
If this happens, you can temporarily reestablish print quality by
redistributing the remaining toner in the cartridge. In some cases, white
streaks or light printing will still occur even after you have redistributed the
toner.
1
Open the front cover.
2
Pull the toner cartridge out.
5
3
Close the front cover. Make sure that the cover is securely closed.
Thoroughly roll the cartridge 5 or 6 times to distribute the toner
evenly inside the cartridge.
Note
Replacing the toner cartridge
If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and
wash clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric.
When the toner cartridge is completely empty:
• Toner Empty Replace Toner appears on the display.
Caution
• The machine stops printing. Incoming faxes are saved in memory.
Do not touch the green underside of the toner cartridge.
Use the handle on the cartridge to avoid touching this area.
At this stage, the toner cartridge needs to be replaced. For order
information for toner cartridges, see page 11.1.

Sending new toner notification
You can set your machine to automatically send a fax to your service
company or dealer to notify them that your machine requires a new toner
cartridge when the toner cartridge needs to be replaced. The fax number
needs to be set by your dealer prior to using this feature, otherwise the
machine cannot send a notification even though you turn this service on.
Thoroughly roll the cartridge to assure maximum copies per
cartridge. Save the box and the plastic bag for shipping.
Note
If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and
wash clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric.

• 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 the help screen of the
printer driver and page 2.3, respectively.
• A combination of faded or smeared defects
may indicate that the toner cartridge needs
cleaning. See page 12.5.
• The surface of the LSU part inside the
machine may be dirty. Clean the LSU. See
page 12.2.
Toner specks
Suggested solutions
• The paper may not meet specifications; for
example, the paper is too moist or too rough.
See page 5.7.
• The transfer roller may be dirty. Clean the
inside of your machine. See page 12.2.
• The paper path may need cleaning. See page
12.2.
Gray background
If the amount of background shading becomes
unacceptable:
• Change to a lighter weight paper. See
page 5.7.
• Check the machine’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 page 12.4.
Toner smear
• Clean the inside of the machine. See
page 12.2.
• Check the paper type and quality. See
page 5.7.
• Remove the toner cartridge and install a new
one. See page 12.4.
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; see page 12.5. After the printout, if
you still have the same problems, remove the
toner cartridge and install a new one. See
page 12.4.
• 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.
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 page 5.7.
• The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing
processes can cause some areas to reject
toner. Try a different kind or brand of paper.
• If these steps do not correct the problem,
contact a service representative.

Condition
Suggested solutions
Condition
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 papers. 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.
Wrinkles or creases
• Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
• Check the paper type and quality. See
page 5.7.
• Turn over the stack of paper in the tray. Also
try rotating the paper 180° in the tray.
Back of printouts
are dirty
Check for leaking toner. Clean the inside of the
machine. See page 12.2.
Black pages
• The toner cartridge may not be installed
properly. Remove the cartridge and reinsert it.
• The toner cartridge may be defective and
need replacing. Remove the toner cartridge

An unknown image
repetitively appears
on a next few
sheets or loose
toner, light print, or
contamination
occurs.
Your printer is probably being used at an altitude
of 2,500 m (8,200 ft) or above.
The high altitude may affect the print quality
such as loose toner or light imaging. You can set
this option through the Printer tab in printer
driver's properties. Refer to the Software
Section for details.
Copying problems
Condition
Suggested solutions
Copies are too light
or too dark.
Use Darkness to darken or lighten the
background of the copies.
Smears, lines,
marks, or spots
appears on copies.
• If defects are on the original, press Darkness
to lighten the background of your copies.
• If no defects are on the original, clean the scan
unit. See page 12.3.
Copy image is
skewed.
• Ensure that the original is face down on the
scanner glass or face up in the ADF.
• Check that the copy paper is loaded correctly.
Blank copies print
out.
Ensure that the original is face down on the
scanner glass or face up in the ADF.
Image rubs off the
copy easily.
• Replace the paper in the tray with paper from a
new package.
• In high humidity areas, do not leave paper in
the machine for extended periods of time.
Frequent copy
paper jams occur.
• Fan the stack of paper, then turn it over in the
tray. Replace the paper in the tray with a fresh
supply. Check/adjust the paper guides, if
necessary.
• Ensure that the paper is the proper paper
weight. 75 g/m2 bond paper is recommended.
• Check for copy paper or pieces of copy paper
remaining in the machine after a paper jam has
been cleared.
Toner cartridge
produces fewer
copies than
expected before
running out of
toner.
• Your originals may contain pictures, solids, or
heavy lines. For example, your originals may
be forms, newsletters, books, or other
documents that use more toner.
• The machine may be turned on and off
frequently.
• The scanner lid may be left open while copies
are being made.

• Make sure that you place the original to be
scanned face down on the scanner glass, or
face up in the ADF.
• There may not be enough available memory
to hold the document you want to scan. Try
the Prescan function to see if that works. Try
lowering the scan resolution rate.
• Check that the USB cable is connected
properly.
• Make sure that the USB cable is not
defective. Switch the cable with a known
good cable. If necessary, replace the cable.
• Check that the scanner is configured
correctly. Check scan setting in the SmarThru
Configuration or the application you want to
use to make certain that the scanner job is
being sent to the correct port.
The machine is not
working, there is no
display and the
buttons are not
working.
• Unplug the power cord and plug it in again.

Common Linux problems
Problem
Possible cause and solutions
The machine does not
print.
• Check if 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, invoke Add new printer wizard to
set up your device.
• Check if the printer 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 Start button. After that
normal operation of the printer should be
restored. The “stopped” status might be
activated when some problems in printing
occurred. For instance, this could be an
attempt to print a document when a port is
claimed by a scanning application.
• Check if the port is not busy. Since
functional components of MFP (printer and
scanner) share the same I/O interface
(port), the situation of simultaneous access
of different “consumer” applications to the
same port are possible. To avoid possible
conflicts, only one of them at a time is
allowed to gain control over the device. The
other “consumer” will encounter “device
busy” response. You should open ports
configuration and select the port assigned
to your printer. In the Selected port pane
you can see if the port is occupied by some
other application. If this is the case, you
should wait for completion of the current job
or should press Release port button, if you
are sure that the present owner is not
functioning properly.
• Check if your application has special print
option 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 command line parameter in the
command item.
• The CUPS (Common Unix Printing System)
version distributed with SuSE Linux 9.2
(cups-1.1.21) has a problem with ipp
(Internet Printing Protocol) printing. Use the
socket printing instead of ipp or install later
version of CUPS (cups-1.1.22 or higher).
Problem
Possible cause and solutions
The machine does not
appear on the
scanners list.
• Check if your machine is attached to your
computer. Make sure that it is connected
properly via the USB port and is turned on.
• Check if the scanner driver for your
machine is installed in your system. Open
Unified Driver configurator, switch to
Scanners configuration, then press
Drivers. Make sure that driver with a name
corresponding to your machine's name is
listed in the window. Check if the port is not
busy. Since functional components of MFP
(printer and scanner) share the same I/O
interface (port), the situation of
simultaneous access of different
“consumer” application to the same port is
possible. To avoid possible conflicts, only
one of them at a time is allowed to gain
control over the device. The other
“consumer” will encounter “device busy”
response. This can usually happen while
starting scan procedure, and appropriate
message box appears.
• To identify the source of the problem, you
should open ports configuration and select
the port assigned to your scanner. port's
symbol /dev/mfp0 corresponds to LP:0
designation displayed in the scanners’
options, /dev/mfp1 relates to LP:1 and so
on. USB ports start at /dev/mfp4, so
scanner on USB:0 relates to /dev/mfp4
respectively and so forth sequentially. In the
Selected port pane you can see if the port
is occupied by some other application. If
this is the case, you should wait for
completion of the current job or you should
press Release port button, if you are sure
that the present port's owner is not
functioning properly.

I cannot scan via Gimp
Front-end.
• Check if Gimp Front-end has
“Xsane: Device dialog.” on the “Acquire”
menu. If not, you should install Xsane plugin for Gimp on the your computer. You can
find Xsane plug-in package for Gimp on
Linux distribution CD or Gimp home page.
For the detail information, refer to the Help
for Linux distribution CD or Gimp Front-end
application.
If you wish to use other kind of scan
application, refer to the Help for application.
Problem
I encounter error
“Cannot open port
device file” when
printing a document.
Possible cause and solutions
Please avoid changing the 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 port while printing,
the abrupt termination of the driver keeps the
port locked and therefore unavailable for
subsequent print jobs. If this situation
occurred, please, try to release the port.

your specific printing needs. See “Printing a Document” on
page 12 for more information on accessing printer properties.
You can set advanced settings by clicking the Advanced
Options button.
• TrueType Options: This option determines what the driver
tells the printer about how to image the text in your document.
Select the appropriate setting according to the status of your
document. This option may be available only in
Windows 9x/Me, depending on your particular printer
model.
- Download as Outline: When this option is selected, the
driver will download any TrueType fonts that are used in your
document not already stored (resident) on your printer. If,
after printing a document, you find that the fonts did not print
correctly, choose Download as bit image and resubmit your
print job. The Download as bit image setting is often useful
when printing Adobe. This feature is available only
when you use the PCL printer driver.
- Download as Bitmap: When this option is selected, the
driver will download the font data as bitmap images.
Documents with complicated fonts, such as Korean or
Chinese, or various other fonts, will print faster in this setting.
- Print as Graphics: When this option is selected, the driver
will download any fonts as graphics. When printing documents
with high graphic content and relatively few TrueType fonts,
printing performance (speed) may be enhanced in this
setting.
• Print All Text To Black: When the Print All Text To
Black option is checked, all text in your document prints solid
black, regardless of the color it appears on the screen.
Click the Graphic tab to display the properties shown below.
Resolution
The Resolution options you can select may vary
depending on your printer model. The higher the setting,
the sharper the clarity of printed characters and graphics. The
higher setting also may increase the time it takes to print a
document.
Image Mode
The available options are Normal and Text Enhance. Some
printers do not support this feature.
• Printer Setting: If you select this option, this feature is
determined by the setting you’ve made on the control panel of
the printer.
• Normal: This setting is for normal documents.
• Text Enhance: Image Mode allows the user to enhance
printouts.
Toner Save Mode
Selecting this option extends the life of your toner cartridge and
reduces your cost per page without a significant reduction in print
quality. Some printers do not support this feature.
• Printer Setting: If you select this option, this feature is
determined by the setting you’ve made on the control panel of
the printer.
• On: Select this option to allow the printer to use less toner on
each page.
• Off: If you don’t need to save toner when printing a document,

3 Output Options
• Print Subset: You can set the sequence in which the pages
print. Select the print order from the drop-down list.
- Normal (1,2,3): Your printer prints all pages from the first
page to the last page.
- Reverse All Pages (3,2,1): Your printer prints all pages
from the last page to the first page.
- Print Odd Pages: Your printer prints only the odd numbered
pages of the document.
- Print Even Pages: Your printer prints only the even
numbered pages of the document.
• Use 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 will try 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.
This feature is available only when you use the PCL
printer driver.

What is an Overlay?
Dear ABC
Regards
WORLD BEST
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.

Printers Configuration
Using the Unified Driver
Configurator
Printers configuration has the 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 Unified
Driver Configurator window.
Unified Linux Driver Configurator is a tool primarily intended for
configuring Printer or MFP devices. Since an MFP device
combines the printer and scanner, the Unified Linux Driver
Configurator provides options logically grouped for printer and
scanner functions. There is also a special MFP port option
responsible for the regulation of access to an MFP printer and
scanner via a single I/O channel.
Switches to Printer
configuration.
After installing the Unified Linux driver, the Unified Linux Driver
Configurator icon will automatically be created on your desktop.
Shows all of the
installed printer.

You can also click the Startup Menu icon and select
Samsung Unified Driver and then Unified Driver
Configurator.
Press each button on the Modules pane to switch to the
corresponding configuration window.
You can use the following printer control buttons:
• Refresh: renews the available printers list.
• Add Printer: allows you to add a new printer.
• Remove Printer: removes the selected printer.
Printers Configuration button
• Set as Default: sets the current printer as a default
printer.
Scanners Configuration button
• Stop/Start: stops/starts the printer.
• Test: allows you to print a test page to check if the
machine is working properly.
Ports Configuration button
• Properties: allows you to view and change the printer
properties. For details, see page 33.

You can use the onscreen help by clicking Help.
After changing the configurations, click Exit to close the
Unified Driver Configurator.

• Remove Class : Removes the selected printer class.
• Release port : Releases the selected port.
Sharing Ports Between Printers and Scanners
Scanners Configuration
Your machine may be connected to a host computer via the
parallel port or USB port. Since the MFP device contains more
than one device (printer and scanner), it is necessary to
organize proper access of “consumer” applications to these
devices via the single I/O port.
In this window, you can monitor the activity of scanner devices,
view a list of installed Samsung MFP devices, change device
properties, and scan images.
Switches to
Scanners
configuration.
The Samsung Unified Linux Driver package provides an
appropriate port sharing mechanism that is used by Samsung
printer and scanner drivers. The drivers address their devices
via so-called MFP ports. The current status of any MFP port can
be viewed via the Ports Configuration. The port sharing
prevents you from accessing one functional block of the MFP
device, while another block is in use.
Shows all of the
installed scanners.
When you install a new MFP device onto your system, it is
strongly recommended you do this with the assistance of an
Unified Driver Configurator. In this case you will be asked to
choose I/O port for the new device. This choice will provide the
most suitable configuration for MFP’s functionality. For MFP
scanners I/O ports are being chosen by scanner drivers
automatically, so proper settings are applied by default.
Shows the vendor,
model name and type
of your scanner.
• Properties... : Allows you to change the scan properties
and scan a document. See page 34.
• Drivers... : Allows you to monitor the activity of the scan drivers.
