Resolution
Select a scanning resolution from the Resolution pop-up menu. Higher resolutions take more memory and transfer
time, but produce a finer scanned image.
Scan Type
Select from a range of scan color depths.
•Black & White
Use for text or line art images.
•Gray (Error Diffusion)
Use for photographic images or graphics. (Error Diffusion is a method for creating simulated gray images without
using true gray dots. Black dots are put in a specific pattern to give a gray appearance.)
•True Gray
Use for photographic images or graphics. This mode is more accurate because it uses up to 256 shades of gray.
•256 Color
Use for simple color illustrations that do not use the full color spectrum. This mode uses up to 256 colors to
create images.
•24bit Color
Use to create an image with the most accurate color reproduction. This mode uses up to 16.8 million colors to
scan the image, but it requires the most memory and has the longest transfer time.

•Convert Telephone Wall Outlets
•Install Your Dell Machine, a External Two-Line TAD and Two-Line Telephone
When you are installing an external two-line telephone answering device (TAD) and a two-line telephone, your

Rollover Telephone Lines
Related Models:Dell E515dn / Dell E515dw
A rollover telephone system is a group of two or more separate telephone lines that pass incoming calls to each other
if they are busy.
This feature is available only in the USA and Canada.
The calls are usually passed down or 'rolled over' to the next available telephone line in a preset order.
Your machine can work in a rollover system only if it is the last number in the sequence, so the call cannot roll
away. Do not place the machine on any of the other numbers; when the other lines are busy and a second fax call is
received, the fax call would be transferred to a line that does not have a fax machine. Your machine will work best
on a dedicated line.
Two-Line Telephone System
Related Models:Dell E515dn / Dell E515dw
A two-line telephone system is nothing more than two separate telephone numbers on the same wall outlet.
This feature is available only in the USA and Canada.
The two telephone numbers can be on separate jacks (RJ11) or combined into one jack (RJ14). Your machine must be
plugged into an RJ11 jack. RJ11 and RJ14 jacks may be equal in size and appearance and both may contain four wires
(black, red, green, yellow). To test the type of jack, plug in a two-line telephone and see if it can access both lines. If
it can, you must separate the line for your machine.

Convert Telephone Wall Outlets
Related Models:Dell E515dn / Dell E515dw
This feature is available only in the USA and Canada.
There are three ways to convert to an RJ11 jack. The first two ways may require assistance from the telephone
company. You can change the wall outlets from one RJ14 jack to two RJ11 jacks. Or, you can have an RJ11 wall outlet
installed and slave or jump one of the telephone numbers to it.
The third way is the easiest: Buy a triplex adapter. You can plug a triplex adapter into an RJ14 outlet. It separates the
wires into two separate RJ11 jacks (Line 1, Line 2) and a third RJ14 jack (Lines 1 and 2). If your machine is on Line 1,
plug the machine into L1 of the triplex adapter. If your machine is on Line 2, plug it into L2 of the triplex adapter.

When you are installing an external two-line telephone answering device (TAD) and a two-line telephone, your
machine must be isolated on one line at both the wall jack and at the TAD.
•This feature is available only in the USA and Canada.
•The most common connection is to place the machine on Line 2, which is explained in the following steps. The
back of the two-line TAD must have two telephone jacks: one labeled L1 or L1/L2, and the other labeled L2. You
will need at least three telephone line cords, the one that came with your machine and two for your external twoline TAD. You will need a fourth line cord if you add a two-line telephone.
1. Place the two-line TAD and the two-line telephone next to your machine.
2. Plug one end of the telephone line cord for your machine into the L2 jack of the triplex adapter. Plug the other
end into the LINE jack of the machine.
3. Plug one end of the first telephone line cord for your TAD into the L1 jack of the triplex adapter. Plug the
other end into the L1 or L1/L2 jack of the two-line TAD.

Voice Mail
Related Models:Dell E515dn / Dell E515dw
This feature is available only in the USA and Canada.
If you have Voice Mail on the same telephone line as your Dell machine, Voice Mail and the Dell machine will
conflict with each other when receiving incoming calls.
For example, if your Voice Mail is set to answer after four rings and your Dell machine is set to answer after two
rings, then your Dell machine will answer first. This will prevent callers from being able to leave a message in your
Voice Mail.
Fax
165
Similarly, if your Dell machine is set to answer after four rings and your Voice Mail is set to answer after two rings,
then your Voice Mail will answer first. This will prevent your Dell machine from being able to receive an incoming
fax, since Voice Mail cannot transfer the incoming fax back to the Dell machine.
To avoid conflicts between your Dell machine and your Voice Mail service, do one of the following:
•Get the Distinctive Ring service from your telephone company. Distinctive Ring is a feature of your Dell
machine that allows a person with one line to receive fax and voice calls through two different telephone
numbers on that one line.
Dell uses the term ’Distinctive Ring,’ but telephone companies market the service under a variety of names, such
as Custom Ringing, Personalized Ring, Smart Ring, RingMaster, Ident-A-Ring, Ident-A-Call, Data Ident-A-Call,
Teen Ring, and SimpleBiz Fax & Alternate Number Ringing. This service establishes a second telephone number
on the same line as your existing telephone number, and each number has its own ring pattern. Typically, the
original number rings with the standard ring pattern and is used for receiving voice calls, and the second number
rings with a different ring pattern and is used for receiving faxes.
•Set your Dell machine’s Receive Mode to "Manual". Manual Mode requires you answer every incoming call if you
want to be able to receive a fax. If the incoming call is a telephone call, then complete the call as you normally
would. If you hear fax sending tones you must transfer the call to the Dell machine.
Unanswered fax and voice calls will go to your Voice Mail.

NOTE: You must pay for your telephone company’s Distinctive Ring service before you program the machine to work
with it.
NOTE: Contact your telephone company for availability and rates.
What does your telephone company’s ‘Distinctive Ring’ do?
Your telephone company’s Distinctive Ring service allows you to have more than one number on the same telephone
line. If you need more than one telephone number, it is cheaper than paying for an extra line. Each telephone number
has its own distinctive ring pattern, so you will know which telephone number is ringing. This is one way to have a
separate telephone number for your machine.
NOTE: Contact your telephone company for availability and rates.
What does Dell’s ‘Distinctive Ring’ do?
The Dell machine has a Distinctive Ring feature that allows you to use your machine to take full advantage of the

with it.
Do you have Voice Mail?
If you have Voice Mail on the telephone line that you will install your new machine on, there is a strong possibility
that Voice Mail and the machine will conflict with each other while receiving incoming calls. However, the
Distinctive Ring feature allows you to use more than one number on your line, so both Voice Mail and the machine
can work together without any problems. If each one has a separate telephone number, neither will interfere with the
other’s operations.
If you decide to get the Distinctive Ring service from the telephone company, you must register the new Distinctive
Ring pattern they give you. This is so your machine can recognize its incoming calls.
NOTE: You can change or cancel the Distinctive Ring pattern at any time. You can switch it off temporarily, and turn it
back on later. When you get a new fax number, make sure you reset this feature.
Before you choose the ring pattern to register
You can only register one Distinctive Ring pattern with the machine. Some ring patterns cannot be registered. The
ring patterns below are supported by your Dell machine. Register the one your telephone company gives you.

Rings
short-short or long-long
2

NOTE: Ring Pattern #1 is often called Short-Short and is the most commonly used.
NOTE: If the ring pattern you received is not on this chart, contact your telephone company and ask for one that is
shown.
•The machine will only answer calls to its registered number.
•The first two rings are silent on the machine. This is because the fax must <<listen>> to the ring pattern (to
compare it to the pattern that was ‘registered’). (Other telephones on the same line will ring.)
•If you program the machine correctly, it will recognize the registered ring pattern of the ‘fax number’ within two
ring patterns and then answer with a fax tone. When the ‘voice number’ is called, the machine will not answer.
Register the Distinctive Ring Pattern

After you set the Distinctive Ring feature to On, your Distinctive Ring number will receive faxes automatically. The
receive mode is automatically set to Manual and you cannot change it to another receive mode while Distinctive
Ring is set to On. This ensures the Dell machine will only answer the Distinctive Ring number and not interfere

Caller ID
Related Models:Dell E515dn / Dell E515dw
The Caller ID feature lets you use the Caller ID subscriber service offered by many local telephone companies. This
service displays the telephone number, or name if it is available, of your caller as the line rings.
•The # Unavailable message means the call originated outside your Caller ID service area.
•The Private Call message means the caller has intentionally blocked transmission of Caller ID information.
Call your telephone company for more information.
Once you answer a call, the Caller ID information disappears from the LCD and is stored in Caller ID memory.
View the list or select a number and add it to the Address Book (the Speed Dial or One the Touch Dial in some
models), or delete it from the history.
You can print a list of the Caller ID information received by your machine.
NOTE: This feature is not available in some countries.

External TAD (Telephone Answering Device)
Related Models:Dell E515dn / Dell E515dw
You can connect an external Telephone Answering Device (TAD) to the same line as your machine. When the TAD
answers a call, your machine will “listen” for the CNG (fax calling) tones sent by a sending fax machine. If it hears
them it will take over the call and receive the fax. If it does not hear them, it will let your TAD take a voice message
and the display will show Telephone.
The external TAD must answer within four rings (we recommend setting it to two rings). This is because your
machine cannot hear the CNG tones until the external TAD has picked up the call. The sending machine will send
CNG tones for only eight to ten seconds longer. We do not recommend using the toll saver feature on your external
TAD if it needs more than four rings to activate it.
Unless you are using Distinctive Ring, the TAD must be connected to the EXT. jack of the machine.
•If you subscribe to your telephone company’s Distinctive Ring service:
You may connect an external TAD to a separate wall jack only if you subscribe to your telephone company’s
Distinctive Ring service, have registered the distinctive ring pattern on your machine, and use that number as a
fax number. The recommended setting is at least four rings on the external TAD when you have the telephone
company’s Distinctive Ring service. You cannot use the Toll Saver setting.
•If You Do Not Subscribe to the Distinctive Ring Service:
You must plug your TAD into the EXT. jack of your machine. If your TAD is plugged into a wall jack, both your
machine and the TAD will try to control the telephone line. (See the illustration.)
Fax

IMPORTANT
DO NOT connect a TAD elsewhere on the same telephone line.
NOTE: If you have problems receiving faxes, reduce the Ring Delay setting on your external TAD.
Connect an External TAD
Related Models:Dell E515dn / Dell E515dw
The external TAD must be plugged into the back of the machine, into the jack labeled EXT. Your machine cannot
work correctly if you plug the TAD into a wall jack (unless you are using Distinctive Ring).
1. Plug the telephone line cord from the telephone wall jack into the back of the machine, in the jack labeled
LINE.
2. Plug the telephone line cord from your external TAD into the back of the machine, in the jack labeled EXT.
(Make sure this cord is connected to the TAD at the TAD’s telephone line jack, and not its handset jack.)
3. Set your external TAD to four rings or less. (The machine’s Ring Delay setting does not apply.)
4. Record the outgoing message on your external TAD.
5. Set the TAD to answer calls.
6. Set the Receive Mode on your machine to External TAD.
Record an Outgoing Message (OGM) on the External TAD
Related Models:Dell E515dn / Dell E515dw
1. Record 5 seconds of silence at the beginning of your message. This allows your machine time to listen for fax
tones.
2. Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
3. End your 20-second message by giving your Fax Receive Code for people sending manual faxes. For example:
“After the beep, leave a message or press *51 and Start to send a fax.”
NOTE: We recommend beginning your OGM with an initial 5 second silence because the machine cannot hear fax
tones over a loud voice. You may try leaving out this pause, but if your machine has trouble receiving faxes, then
you should re-record the OGM to include it.
Multi-line Connections (PBX)
Related Models:Dell E515dn / Dell E515dw
We suggest you ask the company who installed your PBX to connect your machine. If you have a multi line system
we suggest you ask the installer to connect the unit to the last line on the system. This prevents the machine being
activated each time the system receives telephone calls. If all incoming calls will be answered by a switchboard
operator we recommend setting the Receive Mode to Manual.
We cannot guarantee that your machine will operate correctly under all circumstances when connected to a PBX.
Any difficulties with sending or receiving faxes should be reported first to the company who handles your PBX.

Before Configuring Your Dell Machine for a Wireless Network
Related Models:Dell E514dw / Dell E515dw
Before attempting to configure a wireless network, confirm the following:
•To achieve optimum results with normal everyday document printing, place the Dell machine as close to
the wireless LAN access point/router as possible with minimal obstructions. Large objects and walls between
the two devices and interference from other electronic devices can affect the data transfer speed of your
documents.
Due to these factors, wireless may not be the best method of connection for all types of documents and
applications. If you are printing large files, such as multi-page documents with mixed text and large graphics,
you may want to consider selecting wired Ethernet for faster data transfer, or USB for the fastest throughput
speed.
•Although the Dell machine can be used in both a wired and wireless network, only one connection method
can be used at a time. However, a wireless network connection and Wi-Fi Direct connection, or a wired
network connection (supported models only) and Wi-Fi Direct connection can be used at the same time.
•Before configuring wireless settings, you must know your Network name (SSID) and Network Key.

Other Ways to Configure the IP Address
•Configure the IP Address Using DHCP
•Configure the IP Address Using BOOTP
•Configure the IP Address Using RARP
•Configure the IP Address Using APIPA
•Configure the IP Address Using ARP
Configure the IP Address Using DHCP
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several automated mechanisms for IP address
allocation. If you have a DHCP server on your network, the print server obtains its IP address from the DHCP server
automatically and registers its name with any RFC 1001- and 1002-compliant dynamic name services.
If you do not want your print server configured via DHCP, you must set the Boot Method to Static so that the print
222
Network
server has a static IP address. This will prevent the print server from trying to obtain an IP address from any of these
systems.
To change the Boot Method, use the machine's control panel Network menu or Web Based Management.
Configure the IP Address Using BOOTP
Before you configure the IP address using Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP), you must set the machine's Boot Method to
BOOTP. To change the Boot Method, use the machine's control panel Network menu.
BOOTP is an alternative to Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP) that has the advantage of allowing
configuration of the subnet mask and gateway. To use BOOTP to configure the IP address, make sure BOOTP is
installed and running on your host computer (it should appear in the /etc/services file on your host as a real
service; type man bootpd or see your system documentation for information). BOOTP is usually started up via the
/etc/inetd.conf file, so you may need to enable it by removing the "#" in front of the bootp entry in that file.
For example, a typical bootp entry in the /etc/inetd.conf file would be:
#bootp dgram udp wait /usr/etc/bootpd bootpd -i
Depending on the system, this entry might be called "bootps" instead of “bootp”.
NOTE: To enable BOOTP, use an editor to delete the "#" (if there is no "#," then BOOTP is already enabled). Then edit
the BOOTP configuration file (usually /etc/bootptab) and enter the name, network type (1 for Ethernet), MAC
Address (Ethernet Address) and the IP address, subnet mask and gateway of the print server. Unfortunately, the
exact format for doing this is not standardized, so you will need to see your system documentation to determine how
to enter this information (many UNIX® systems also have template examples in the bootptab file that you can use for
reference). Some examples of typical /etc/bootptab entries include:
DELL310107 1 00:80:77:31:01:07 192.168.1.2
and:
DELL310107:ht=ethernet:ha=008077310107:\ip=192.168.1.2:
Certain BOOTP host software implementations will not respond to BOOTP requests if you have not included a
download filename in the configuration file. If this is the case, create a null file on the host and specify the name of
this file and its path in the configuration file.
As with RARP, the print server will load its IP address from the BOOTP server when the machine is powered on.
Configure the IP Address Using RARP
Before you configure the IP address using Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP), you must set the machine's
Boot Method to RARP. To change the Boot Method, use the machine's control panel or Web Based Management.
The Dell print server's IP address can be configured using the RARP facility on your host computer. This is done by
editing the /etc/ethers file (if this file does not exist, you can create it) with an entry similar to the following:
00:80:77:31:01:07 DELL008077310107
where the first entry is the MAC Address (Ethernet Address) of the print server and the second entry is the name of
the print server. (The name must be the same as the one you put in the /etc/hosts file.)
If the RARP daemon is not already running, start it (depending on the system, the command can be rarpd, rarpd -a,
in.rarpd -a, or another command; type man rarpd or see your system documentation for additional information).
To verify that the RARP daemon is running on a Berkeley UNIX® based system, type the following command:
Network
223
ps -ax | grep -v grep | grep rarpd
For AT&T UNIX®-based systems, type:
ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep rarpd
The Dell print server will get the IP address from the RARP daemon when the machine is powered on.
Configure the IP Address Using APIPA
The Dell print server supports the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol. With APIPA, DHCP clients
automatically configure an IP address and subnet mask when a DHCP server is not available. The device selects its
own IP address in the range 169.254.1.0 through 169.254.254.255. The subnet mask is automatically set to 255.255.0.0
and the gateway address is set to 0.0.0.0.
By default, the APIPA protocol is enabled. To disable the APIPA protocol, use the machine's control panel or Web
Based Management.
Configure the IP Address Using ARP
If your network does not use a DHCP server, you can also use the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) command. The
ARP command is available on Windows® systems that have TCP/IP installed and UNIX® systems. To use ARP, type
the following command:
arp -s ipaddress ethernetaddress
ipaddress
Where ethernetaddress is the MAC Address (Ethernet Address) of the print server and ipaddress is the IP
address of the print server.
For example:
Windows® systems
Windows® systems require the hyphen (dash) "-" character between each digit of the MAC Address (Ethernet
Address).
arp -s 192.168.1.2 00-80-77-31-01-07
ping 192.168.1.2
UNIX®/Linux systems
Typically, UNIX® and Linux systems require the colon ":" character between each digit of the MAC Address
(Ethernet Address).
arp -s 192.168.1.2 00:80:77:31:01:07
ping 192.168.1.2
NOTE: You must be on the same Ethernet segment to use the ARP command, that is, there cannot be a router between the print server and operating system.
If there is a router, you may use BOOTP or other methods to enter the IP address. If your administrator has configured
the system to deliver IP addresses using BOOTP, DHCP, or RARP, your Dell print server can receive an IP address from
any one of these IP address allocation systems, so you will not need to use the ARP command. The ARP command
works only once. For security reasons, when you have successfully configured the IP address of a Dell print server
using the ARP command, you cannot use the ARP command again to change the address. The print server will ignore
any attempts to do this. To change the IP address again, use Web Based Management, or perform a factory reset on
the print server, which will then allow you to use the ARP command again.

Network
Network Menu on the Dell Control Panel
The control panel's Network menu selections allow you to configure the Dell machine for your network.
Note that your Dell machine includes the Web Based Management, which you can use to configure many aspects of
the network.
TCP/IP
If you connect the machine to your network with a network cable, use the Wired LAN menu selections. If you
connect the machine to a wireless Ethernet network, use the WLAN menu selections.
Boot Method
This selection controls how the machine obtains an IP address.
Auto
In this mode, the machine will scan the network for a DHCP server. If it can find one, and if the DHCP server
is configured to allocate an IP address to the machine, then the IP address supplied by the DHCP server will be
used.
If no DHCP server is available, the IP Address is set using the APIPA protocol. After the machine is initially
powered ON, it may take a few minutes for the machine to scan the network for a server.
Static
In this mode, the machine's IP address must be manually assigned. When the IP address is entered, it is locked to
the assigned address.
If you do not want your print server configured via DHCP, BOOTP, or RARP, you must set the BOOT Method
to Static so that the print server has a static IP address. This will prevent the print server from trying to obtain an
IP address from any of these systems.
To change the BOOT Method, use the machine's control panel or Web Based Management.
IP Address
This field displays the current IP address of the machine. If you have selected a BOOT Method of Static, type the IP
address that you wish to assign to the machine (check with your network administrator for the IP address to use). If
you have selected a method other than Static, the machine will attempt to determine its IP address using the DHCP,
BOOTP, or RARP protocols.
The default IP address of your machine will probably be incompatible with the IP address numbering scheme of
your network. We recommend contacting your network administrator for an IP address that is compatible with the
network to which your machine is connected.
Subnet Mask
This field displays the current subnet mask used by the machine. If you are not using DHCP, BOOTP, or RARP to
obtain the subnet mask, type the desired subnet mask. Check with your network administrator for the subnet mask
to use.
Gateway
This field displays the current gateway or router address used by the machine. If you are not using DHCP, BOOTP,
or RARP to obtain the gateway or router address, type the address you wish to assign. If you do not have a gateway or
router, leave this field blank. Check with your network administrator if you are unsure.
Node Name
You can register the machine name on the Network. This name is often referred to as a NetBIOS name; it will be the
Network
227
name that is registered by the Windows® Internet Name Service (WINS) server on your network.
Dell recommends the name "DELLxxxxxx" (where "xxxxxx" is the first six digits of your machine's MAC Address /
Ethernet address) (up to 32 characters).
WINS Configuration
This selection controls how the machine obtains the IP address of the WINS server.
Auto
Automatically uses a DHCP request to determine the IP addresses for the primary and secondary WINS servers.
You must set the Boot Method to Auto or DHCP for this feature to work.
Static
Uses a specified IP address for the primary and secondary WINS servers.
WINS Server
This selection manages the IP address of the WINS server.
Primary (Primary WINS Server IP Address)
This field specifies the IP address of the primary WINS server. If set to a non-zero value, the machine will
contact this server to register its name with the Windows® Internet Name Service.
Secondary (Secondary WINS Server IP Address)
This field specifies the IP address of the secondary WINS server. It is used as a backup to the primary WINS
server address. If the primary WINS server is unavailable, the machine still can register itself with a secondary
server.
If set to a non-zero value, the machine will contact this server to register its name with the Windows® Internet
Name Service. If you have a primary WINS server but no secondary WINS server, simply leave this field blank.
DNS Server
This selection manages the IP address of the Domain Name System (DNS) server.
Primary (Primary DNS Server IP Address)
This field specifies the IP address of the primary DNS server.
Secondary (Secondary DNS Server IP Address)
This field specifies the IP address of the secondary DNS server. It is used as a backup to the primary DNS server
address. If the primary DNS server is unavailable, the machine will contact the secondary DNS server.
APIPA
Selecting On will cause the print server to automatically allocate a link-local IP address in the range (169.254.1.0 169.254.254.255) when the print server cannot obtain an IP address through the Boot Method you have set. Selecting
Off means the IP address does not change when the print server cannot obtain an IP address through the Boot
Method you have set.
IPv6
This machine is compatible with IPv6, the next generation Internet protocol. The default setting is Off. If you want
to use the IPv6 protocol, select On.
NOTE: If you set IPv6 to On, turn off the power switch, and then turn it back on to enable this protocol.

applications under this mode. However, it is not secure since it will not authenticate the user and the data will
not be encrypted.
•SNMPv3 read-write access and v1/v2c read-only access
In this mode, the print server uses the read-write access of version 3 and the read-only access of version 1 and
version 2c of the SNMP protocol.
Security
237
NOTE: When you use the SNMPv3 read-write access and v1/v2c read-only access mode, some Dell
applications that access to the print server do not work correctly since they authorize the read-only access of
version 1 and version 2c. If you want to use all applications, use the SNMP v1/v2c read-write access mode.
•SNMPv3 read-write access
With this mode, the print sever uses version 3 of the SNMP protocol. If you want to manage the print server
securely, use this mode.
NOTE: When you use the SNMPv3 read-write access mode, note the following:
•You can manage the print server using Web Based Management only.
•All applications that use SNMPv1/v2c will be restricted. To allow the use of SNMPv1/v2c applications,

250
Troubleshooting
The machine does not print on both sides
of the paper even though the printer driver
setting is 2-sided.
Print speed is too slow.
The machine does not feed paper.
The machine does not feed paper from the
Manual feed slot.
The machine does not feed envelopes.
Check the paper size setting in the printer driver. You must select Letter, Legal or
Folio paper that is 16 to 28 lb (60 to 105 g/m2).
Try changing the printer driver setting. The highest resolution needs longer data
processing, sending and printing time.
If there is paper in the paper tray, make sure it is straight. If the paper is curled,
straighten it. Sometimes it is helpful to remove the paper, turn the stack over and
put it back in the paper tray.
Reduce the amount of paper in the paper tray, and then try again.
Make sure Manual is not selected for Paper Source in the printer driver.
Clean the paper pick-up rollers.
Use both hands to push one sheet of paper firmly into the manual feed slot until
the top edge of the paper presses against the paper feed rollers. Continue pressing
the paper against the rollers until the machine grabs the paper and pulls it in
further.
Put only one sheet of paper in the manual feed slot.
Make sure Manual is selected for Paper Source in the printer driver.
Load one envelope at a time in the manual feed slot. Your application must be set
to print the envelope size you are using. This is usually done in the Page Setup or
Document Setup menu of your application.
Telephone and Fax Problems
Related Models:Dell E515dn / Dell E515dw
Telephone Line or Connections
Difficulties
Dialing does not work. (No dial tone)
The machine does not answer when called.
Suggestions
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged
into the telephone wall jack and the LINE jack of the machine. If you subscribe
to DSL, VoIP or MagicJack services, call your service provider for connection
instructions.
(Available only for some countries.)
Change the Tone/Pulse setting.
Send a manual fax by pressing Hook button, and dialing the number. Wait to
hear fax-receiving tones before pressing Start button.
If there is no dial tone, connect a known working telephone and telephone line
cord to the jack. Then lift the external telephone’s handset and listen for a dial
tone. If there is still no dial tone, ask your telephone company to check the line
and/or wall jack.
Make sure the machine is in the correct receive mode for your setup.
Check for a dial tone. If possible, call your machine to hear it answer. If there is
still no answer, check that the telephone line cord is plugged into the telephone
wall jack and the LINE jack of the machine. If there is no ringing when you call
your machine, ask your telephone company to check the line.
Handling Incoming Calls
Difficulties
Suggestions
Troubleshooting
251
Sending a Fax Call to the machine.
Custom features on a single line.
If you answered on an extension telephone, press your Fax Receive Code (the
factory setting is *51). If you answered on the external telephone (connected to
the EXT. jack), press Start button to receive the fax.
When your machine answers, hang up.
If you have Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID, Caller ID, RingMaster, Voice
Mail, an answering machine, an alarm system or other custom feature on a single
telephone line with your machine, it may create a problem sending or receiving
faxes.
For Example: If you subscribe to Call Waiting or some other custom service and
its signal comes through the line while your machine is sending or receiving a
fax, the signal can temporarily interrupt or disrupt the faxes. Dell’s ECM (Error
Correction Mode) feature should help overcome this problem. This condition is
related to the telephone system industry and is common to all devices that send
and receive information on a single, shared line with custom features. If avoiding
a slight interruption is crucial to your business, we recommend using a separate
telephone line with no custom features.
Receiving Faxes
Difficulties
Cannot
receive a
fax.
252
Suggestions
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged into the telephone wall jack and
the LINE jack of the machine. If you subscribe to DSL, VoIP or MagicJack services, call your service provider
for connection instructions. To lower the modem speed and turn off ECM (error correction mode), change the
telephone line interference / VoIP settings.
Make sure your machine has a dial tone by pressing Hook key or Hook button in Fax mode. If you hear static or
interference on your fax line, contact your local telephone provider.
Make sure the machine is in the correct Receive Mode. This is determined by the external devices and telephone
subscriber services you have on the same line as the Dell machine.
• If you have a dedicated fax line and want your Dell machine to automatically answer all incoming faxes, you
should select Fax only mode.
• If your Dell machine shares a line with an external answering machine, you should select the External TAD
mode. In External TAD mode, your Dell machine will automatically receive incoming faxes and voice callers
will be able to leave a message on your answering machine.
• If your Dell machine shares the line with a Voice Mail subscriber service, see Related Information: Voice Mail
• If your Dell machine is on a line with the Distinctive Ring subscriber service, see Related Information:
Distinctive Ring
• If your Dell machine shares a line with other telephones and you want it to automatically answer all incoming
faxes, you should select the Fax/Tel mode. In Fax/Tel mode, your Dell machine will automatically receive
faxes and produce a pseudo/double-ring to alert you to answer voice calls.
• If you do not want your Dell machine to automatically answer any incoming faxes, you should select the
Manual mode. In Manual mode, you must answer every incoming call and activate the machine to receive
faxes.
Another device or service at your location may be answering the call before your Dell machine answers. To test
this, lower the ring delay setting:
• If the Receive Mode is set to Fax Only or Fax/Tel, reduce the Ring Delay to 1 ring.
See Related Information: Set the Number of Rings Before the Machine Answers (Ring Delay)
• If the Receive Mode is set to External TAD, reduce the number of rings programmed on your answering
machine to 2.
• If the Receive Mode is set to Manual, DO NOT adjust the Ring Delay setting.
Troubleshooting
Have someone send you a test fax:
• If you received the test fax successfully, your machine is operating correctly. Remember to reset your Ring
Delay or answering machine setting back to your original setting. If receiving problems recur after resetting
the Ring Delay, then a person, device, or subscriber service is answering the fax call before the machine has a
chance to answer.
• If you were not able to receive the fax, then another device or subscriber service may be interfering with your
fax reception or there may be a problem with your fax line.
If you are using a telephone answering machine (External TAD mode) on the same line as the Dell machine,
make sure your answering machine is set up correctly.
1. Plug the telephone line cord directly from the wall telephone jack to your Dell machine’s LINE jack.
2. Remove the protective cap from your Dell machine’s EXT jack, and then plug the telephone line cord from
your answering machine into the EXT jack.
3. Set your answering machine to answer within 4 rings.
If you are having problems receiving faxes or voice messages, set your answering machine to answer within
2 or 3 rings.
4. Record the outgoing message on your answering machine.
• Record five seconds of silence at the beginning of your outgoing message.
• Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
• End your outgoing message with your Fax Receive Code for people sending manual faxes. For example:
“After the beep, leave a message or press *51 and Start to send a fax.”
5. Set your answering machine to answer calls.
6. Set your Dell machine’s Receive Mode to External TAD.
See Related Information: Choose the Correct Receive Mode
Make sure your Dell machine’s Easy Receive feature is turned On. Easy Receive is a feature that allows you to
receive a fax even if you answered the call on an external or extension telephone.
If you often get transmission errors due to possible interference on the telephone line, try changing the
Compatibility setting to Basic(for VoIP).
Sending Faxes
Difficulties
Cannot send a fax.
Poor sending quality.
Transmission Verification Report says
RESULT:NG.
Suggestions
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged
into the telephone wall jack and the LINE jack of the machine. If you subscribe
to DSL, VoIP or MagicJack services, call your service provider for connection
instructions.
Make sure you pressed Fax and the machine is in Fax mode.
Print the Transmission Verification Report and check for an error.
Ask the other party to check that the receiving machine has paper.
Try changing your resolution to Fine or S.Fine. Make a copy to check your
machine’s scanner operation. If the copy quality is not good, clean the scanner.
There is probably temporary noise or static on the line. Try sending the fax again.
If you are sending a PC-Fax message and get RESULT:NG on the Transmission
Verification Report, your machine may be out of memory. To free up extra
memory, you can turn off fax storage, print fax messages in memory or cancel a
delayed fax or polling job. If the problem continues, ask the telephone company
to check your telephone line.
If you often get transmission errors due to possible interference on the telephone
line, try changing the Compatibility setting to Basic(for VoIP).
Troubleshooting
253
Sent faxes are blank.
Vertical black lines when sending.
Make sure you are loading the document correctly. When using the ADF, the
document should be face up. When using the scanner glass, the document
should be face down.
Black vertical lines on faxes you send are typically caused by dirt or correction
fluid on the glass strip. Clean the glass strip.
Printing received faxes
Difficulties
• Condensed print
• Horizontal streaks
• Top and bottom sentences are cut off
• Missing lines
Suggestions
This is usually caused by a poor telephone connection. Make a copy; if your copy
looks good, you probably had a bad connection, with static or interference on the
telephone line. Ask the other party to send the fax again.
Vertical black lines when receiving
The corona wire for printing may be dirty.
Clean the corona wire in the drum unit.

Improve the Print Quality
If you have a print quality problem, print a test page first. If the printout looks good, the problem is probably not the
machine. Check the interface cable connections and try printing a different document. If the printout or test page
printed from the machine has a quality problem, check the examples of poor print quality in the table and follow the
recommendations.
IMPORTANT
Using non-Dell supplies may affect the print quality, hardware performance, and machine reliability.
1. To get the best print quality, we suggest using recommended print media. Make sure you use paper that meets
our specifications.
2. Check that the toner cartridge and drum unit are installed correctly.

Replace Supplies
You must replace supplies when the machine indicates that the life of the supply is over.
You can replace the following supplies yourself.
Using non-Dell supplies may affect the print quality, hardware performance, and machine reliability.
NOTE: The toner cartridge and drum unit are two separate supplies. Make sure both are installed as an assembly.
To avoid any inconvenience, you may want to buy spare supplies to keep as replacements before the machine stops
printing.
WARNING
•Never use a vacuum cleaner for spilled toner and residual toner in this product, toner cartridge or toner bottle. It
may catch fire by electric sparks inside a vacuum cleaner and cause explosion. Use a broom or a wet cloth to wipe
off the spills. If you spill a large volume of toner, contact your local Dell representative.
•Never throw a toner cartridge into an open flame. Remaining toner in the cartridge may catch fire and
cause burn injuries or explosion. If you have a used toner cartridge no longer needed, contact your local Dell
representative for its disposal.
CAUTION
•Keep drum cartridges (or drum if not a cartridge type) and toner cartridges out of the reach of children. If a child
accidentally swallows toner, spit it out, rinse mouth with water, drink water and consult a physician immediately.
•When replacing drum cartridges (or drum if not a cartridge type) and toner cartridges, be careful not to spill the
toner. In case of any toner spills, avoid contact with clothes, skin, eyes and mouth as well as inhalation.
•If toner spills onto your skin or clothing, wash it off with soap and water. If you get toner particles in the eyes,
wash it out with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes until irritation is gone. Consult a physician if necessary.
IMPORTANT
•Dell machines are designed to work with toner of a particular specification and will work to a level of optimum
performance when used with Dell Original toner cartridges. Dell cannot guarantee this optimum performance if
toner or toner cartridges of other specifications are used. The machine may not detect toner or toner cartridges
of other specifications correctly but may instead detect such items as standard yield toner cartridges. Dell does
not therefore recommend the use of cartridges other than Dell Original cartridges with this machine, or the
refilling of empty cartridges with toner from other sources. If damage is caused to the drum unit or other parts
Routine Maintenance

of this machine as a result of the use of toner or toner cartridges other than Dell Original products due to the
incompatibility or lack of suitability of those products with this machine, any repairs required as a result may not
be covered by the warranty.
•For best performance, use a Dell Original drum and toner cartridge. Printing with a third party drum unit or
toner cartridge may reduce not only the print quality but also the quality and life of the machine itself. Warranty
coverage may not apply to problems caused by the use of a third party drum or toner cartridge.
NOTE
•Be sure to seal up the used supplies tightly in a bag so that toner powder does not spill out of the cartridge.
•Discard the used supply according to local regulations, keeping it separate from domestic waste. If you have
questions, contact your local waste disposal office.
•We recommend placing used supplies on a piece of paper to prevent accidentally spilling or scattering the
material inside.
•If you use paper that is not a direct equivalent for the recommended print media, the life of supplies and
machine parts may be reduced.
•The projected life for each of the toner cartridges is based on ISO/IEC 19752. Frequency of replacement will vary
depending on the print volume, percentage of coverage, types of media used, and powering on/off the machine.
•Frequency of replacement supplies except toner cartridges will vary depending on the print volume, types of
media used, and powering on/off the machine.
•Handle the toner cartridge carefully. If toner scatters on your hands or clothes, immediately wipe or wash it off
with cold water.
•To avoid print quality problems, DO NOT touch the shaded parts shown in the illustrations.

Learn About The Toner Cartridge
The Standard toner cartridge can print approximately 1,200 pages *1. The High Yield toner cartridge can print
approximately 2,600 pages *1. Actual page count will vary depending on your average type of document.
When a toner cartridge is running low, the control panel shows Toner Low indication.
The toner cartridge that comes with your Dell machine is a Starter toner cartridge. The approximate toner life may
differ from the Standard toner cartridge.
Approximate life of Starter Toner Cartridge
Approximately 700 pages (Letter or A4 pages)*1
NOTE: It is a good idea to keep a new toner cartridge ready for use when you see the Toner Low warning.
NOTE: To ensure high quality printing, we recommend using only Genuine Dell Brand toner cartridges. When you
want to buy toner cartridges, contact Dell Customer Service.
NOTE: DO NOT unpack the new toner cartridge until you are ready to install it.
NOTE: If a toner cartridge is left unpacked for a long time, the toner life will be shortened.
NOTE: Dell strongly recommends you DO NOT refill the toner cartridge provided with your machine. We also strongly
recommend you continue to use only Genuine Dell Brand replacement toner cartridges. Use or attempted use of third
party toner and/or cartridges in the Dell machine may cause damage to the machine and/or may result in unsatisfactory print quality. Our limited warranty coverage does not apply to any problem that is caused by the use of third party
toner and/or cartridges. To protect your investment and obtain premium performance from the Dell machine, we
strongly recommend the use of Genuine Dell Supplies.

10.Close the front cover of the machine.
NOTE: After replacing a toner cartridge, DO NOT turn off the machine or open the Front cover until the machine's
display returns to Ready Mode.
Learn About The Drum Unit
A new drum unit can print approximately 12,000 Letter or A4 size single-sided pages.
Drum wear and tear occurs due to use and rotation of the drum and interaction with paper, toner and other
materials in the paper path. In designing this product, Dell decided to use the number of rotations of the drum as a
reasonable determinant of the drum life. When a drum reaches the factory-established rotation limit corresponding
to the rated page yield, the product’s LCD will advise you to replace the applicable drum. The product will continue
to function; however, print quality may not be optimal.
296
Routine Maintenance
NOTE
•If an unpacked drum unit is placed in direct sunlight (or room light for long periods of time), the unit may be
damaged.
•There are many factors that determine the actual drum life, such as the temperature, humidity, type of paper,
type of toner used and so on. Under ideal conditions, the average drum life is estimated at approximately 12,000
pages. The actual number of pages that your drum will print may be significantly less than this estimate.
Because we have no control over the many factors that determine the actual drum life, we cannot guarantee a
minimum number of pages that will be printed by your drum.
•For best performance, use only genuine Dell toner. The machine should be used only in a clean, dust-free
environment with adequate ventilation.
Printing with a non-Dell drum unit may reduce not only the print quality but also the quality and life of the
machine itself. Warranty coverage does not apply to problems caused by the use of a non-Dell drum unit.

•Ventilate well during extended operation or mass copying. It may affect the office air environment due to
odor such as ozone in a poorly ventilated room. Provide proper ventilation to ensure the comfortable and safe
environment.

(For Norway Only).
FCC Part68 comment,
•If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to the telephone line, ensure the installation of
this equipment does not disable your alarm equipment. If you have questions about what will disable alarm
equipment, call your telephone company or a qualified installer.
Information regarding recycled paper
•Recycled paper is of the same quality of paper made from original forest sources. Standards governing modern
recycled paper ensure that it meets the highest quality requirements for different printing processes. The
imaging equipment supplied by the VA signatories is suitable for using with recycled paper meeting the EN
12281:2002 standard.
•Purchasing recycled paper saves natural resources and promotes the circular economy. Paper is made using
cellulose fibres from wood. Collecting and recycling paper extends the life of fibres over multiple life cycles
making the best use of the resources.
•The recycled paper production process is shorter. The fibres have already been processed; so less water, chemicals
and energy are used.
•Paper recycling has the benefit of saving carbon by diverting paper products from alternative disposal routes such
as landfill and incineration. Landfill waste emits methane gas which has a powerful greenhouse effect.
