Installation Precautions
Environment
CAUTION
• Avoid placing the printer on or in locations which are
unstable or not level. Such locations may cause the
printer to fall down or fall over. This type of situation
presents a danger of personal injury or damage to the
printer. .........................................................................
• Avoid locations with humidity or dust and dirt. If dust or
dirt becomes attached to the power plug, clean the
plug to avoid the danger of fire or electrical shock. ....
• Avoid locations near radiators, heaters, or other heat
sources, or locations near flammable items, to avoid
the danger of fire. .......................................................
• To keep the printer cool and facilitate changing of parts
and maintenance, allow access space as shown below. Leave adequate space, especially around the
side cover, to allow air to be properly ventilated out of
the printer. ...................................................................
Power Supply/Grounding the Printer
WARNING
• DO NOT use a power supply with a voltage other than
that specified. Avoid multiple connections in the same
outlet. These types of situations present a danger of
fire or electrical shock. ................................................
• Plug the power cord securely into the outlet. If metallic
objects come in contact with the prongs on the plug, it
may cause a fire or electric shock. .............................
• Always connect the printer to an outlet with a ground
connection to avoid the danger of fire or electrical
shock in case of an electric short. If an earth connection is not possible, contact your service representative. .............................................................................
Other Precautions
• Connect the power plug to the closest outlet possible
to the printer.
Handling of Plastic Bags
WARNING
• Keep the plastic bags that are used with the printer
away from children. The plastic may cling to their nose
and mouth causing suffocation. ..................................
• Always use the caster stoppers to stabilize the printer
once it is in place to keep it from moving and/or falling
over and causing injury. ..............................................
Other Precautions
• Adverse environmental conditions may affect the safe
operation and performance of the printer. Install in an
air-conditioned room (recommended room temperature: around 20 °C, humidity: around 65 % RH) and
avoid the following locations when selecting a site for
the printer.
• Avoid locations near a window or with exposure to direct sunlight.
• Avoid locations with vibrations.
• Avoid locations with drastic temperature fluctuations.
• Avoid locations with direct exposure to hot or cold air.
• Avoid poorly ventilated locations.

Binding Setups
The term binding refers to the manner in which printed pages of paper are joined together (by gluing, stitching, etc.) in
book form. The two possible types of binding are long-edge
binding, in which pages are joined together along their long
edge; and short-edge binding, in which they are joined together along their short edge. In selecting a binding type,
you must also consider the orientation of the printed page.
You can use long-edge or short-edge binding with either
landscape or portrait printing.
Depending on the binding type and print orientation, the duplex unit provides four types of binding setups. These are: (1)
portrait, long-edge, (2) portrait, short edge, (3) landscape,
long-edge, and (4) landscape, short-edge. The figure below
shows these binding setups.

In either job mode, when printing a document, the print data
is transferred from the computer to the printer then stored on
the printer’s Microdrive. Since copies of the document are
printed using the stored data, printing is performed faster
with less computer spooling time and less network traffic.
Job Storage
Job storage stores print jobs either temporarily or permanently, or in virtual mailboxes, as you click an appropriate radio button on the printer driver when printing from a
computer.
Job Retention
Virtual Mailbox
Job Retention has four modes as summarized below. These
modes are selected when you choose on the printer driver
through the application software:
Virtual mailbox is part of Job Storage, which stores print jobs
on the Microdrive without printing. It enables you to retrieve
jobs later from the operator panel, or the KM-NET Job Manager utility (in the CD-ROM).

This mode enables you to print the requested number of copies of a job, simultaneously storing the job on the hard disk.
When additional copies are required, you can reprint the required number of copies from the printer operator panel. To
print a job as a quick copy job, see Printer Driver Guide.
The default number of print jobs that can be stored on the
hard disk is 32. This value can be increased to up to 50 from
the e-MPS Configuration menu. For details, see Changing the

In private printing, you can specify that a job is not printed
until you release the job from the operator panel. At sending
the job from the application software, you can specify a 4-digit
access code in the printer driver. The job is released for printing by entering the access code on the operator panel. Thus,
this function ensures confidentiality of the print job.
When the printer is turned off, all the print jobs will be deleted.
In the job retention mode, access codes are not mandatory,
but can be set on the printer driver if printing with the PIN

Chapter 1 Using the Operator Panel
Operating RAM Disk
The RAM disk is a memory space shared within the printer
memory that can temporarily store print jobs. The RAM disk
can be used only for electronic sorting. The stored print job
can then be used to print multiple copies of the job reducing
the total amount of time required to print the whole job. It
acts similar to the hard disk except that the data is effective
only during the printer is powered up. By default, the RAM
disk is not activated (Off).
To use the RAM disk, activate and enter the desired size of
the RAM disk in the manner described below. The maximum
RAM disk size can be calculated as follows:
Setting RAM Disk Size

Maximum RAM disk size = Total printer memory minus 9

For example, if the total memory installed in your printer is
16 MB (factory setting), you can set 7 MB of RAM disk. If you
attempt to set the RAM disk size beyond this restriction, the
printer automatically round it down so that the size is always
9 MB less than the total printer memory. Once the RAM disk
size is set, the printer must be reset.
To activate RAM disk in the printer’s memory, first you must
set the RAM disk mode to On and set the desired data size for
the RAM disk as descriped in the following section. This allows you to perform the following operations on the RAM
disk.

is automatically adjusted to the maximam RAM disk
size.
NOTE
• RAM disk can not be used when an option hard disk is installed.
• RAM disk stores data only temporarily. When the printer is reset
or turned off, the stored data will be erased.

Paper Selection
This chapter explains the following topics:
•General Guidelines
•Special Paper
•Paper Type
Paper Specifications
The following table summarizes the basic paper
specifications. Details are given on the following pages.
Item
General Guidelines
The printer is designed to print on high-quality copier bond
paper (the kind used in ordinary dry copier machines), but it
can also accept a variety of other types of paper within the
limits specified below.
NOTE
The manufacturer assumes no liability for problems that occur
when paper not satisfying these requirements is used.
Selection of the right paper is important. Using the wrong
paper can result in paper jams, misfeeding, curling, poor
print quality, and paper waste, and in extreme cases can
damage the printer. The guidelines given below will increase
the productivity of your office by ensuring efficient, troublefree printing and reducing wear and tear on the printer.
Paper Availability
Most types of paper are compatible with a variety of
machines. Paper intended for xerographic copiers can also be
used with the printer.
There are three general grades of paper: economy, standard,
and premium. The most significant difference between grades
is the ease with which they pass through the printer. This is
affected by the smoothness, size, and moisture content of the
paper, and the way in which the paper is cut. The higher the
grade of paper you use, the less risk there will be of paper
jams and other problems, and the higher the level of quality
your printed output will reflect.
Differences between paper from different suppliers can also
affect the printer’s performance. A high-quality printer
cannot produce high-quality results when the wrong paper is
used. Low-priced paper is not economical in the long run if it
causes printing problems.
Paper in each grade is available in a range of basis weights
(defined later). The traditional standard weights are 16, 20,
and 28 pounds (60 to 105 g/m2).
Specification

(16 to 28 lb/ream)
MP tray: 60 to 200 g/m2
(16 to 53 lb/ream)

0.086 to 0.110 mm (3.4 to 4.3
mils)
Dimensional accuracy

Selecting the Right Paper
Laser printing is a process involving laser light, electrostatic
discharge, toner, and heat. In addition, as the paper passes
through the printer it undergoes considerable sliding,
bending, and twisting motions. A high-quality printing paper
matching the printer’s requirements withstands all these
stresses, enabling the printer to turn out clean, crisp printed
copies consistently.
Remember that all paper is not the same. Some of the factors
to consider when selecting paper for the printer are as
follows:
Condition of the Paper
Avoid using paper that is bent at the edges, curled, dirty,
torn, embossed, or contaminated with lint, clay, or paper
shreds.
Use of paper in these conditions can lead to illegible printing,
misfeeding, and paper jams, and can shorten the life of the
printer. In particular, avoid using paper with a surface
coating or other surface treatment. The paper should have as
smooth and even a surface as possible.

Composition
Basis Weight
Do not use paper that has been coated or surface-treated and
contains plastic or carbon. The heat of fusing can cause such
paper to give off harmful fumes. Such paper may cause damage to the drum.
Basis weight is the weight of a standard quantity of paper. In
the traditional system, the standard quantity is a ream
consisting of 500 sheets measuring 17 × 22 inches each. In the
metric system the standard quantity is 1 square meter.
Bond paper should contain at least 80 % pulp. Not more than
20 % of the total paper content should consist of cotton or
other fibers.
Paper that is too light or too heavy can cause misfeeding,
jams, and premature wear of the printer. Uneven paper
weight can cause multiple feeds, print defects, poor toner
fusing, blurring, and other print quality problems. The proper
weight is 60 to 105 g/m2 for the paper cassette, and 60 to 200
g/m2 for the MP tray.
Paper Size
Cassettes and an MP tray are available for the paper sizes
listed in the table above. The dimensional tolerances are ±0.7
mm (±0.0276 inches) for the length and width. The angle at
the corners must be 90° ±0.2°.
Smoothness
The paper should have a smooth, uncoated surface. Paper
with a rough or sandy surface can cause voids in the printed
output. Paper that is too smooth, however, can cause multiple
feeding and fogging problems. (Fogging is a gray background
effect.)

Thickness (Caliper)
Thick paper is referred to as high-caliper paper and thin
paper as low-caliper paper. The paper used with the printer
should be neither extremely thick nor extremely thin. If you
are having problems with paper jams, multiple feeds, and
faint printing, the paper you are using may be too thin. If you
are having problems with paper jams and blurred printing,
the paper may be too thick. The proper thickness is 0.086 to
0.110 mm (3.4 to 4.3 mils).
Moisture Content
Moisture content is defined as the percent ratio of moisture to
the dry mass of the paper. Moisture can affect the paper’s
appearance, feedability, curl, electrostatic properties, and
toner fusing characteristics.
The moisture content of the paper varies with the relative
humidity in the room. When the relative humidity is high and
the paper absorbs moisture, the paper edges expand,
becoming wavy in appearance. When the relative humidity is
low and the paper loses moisture, the edges shrink and
tighten, and print contrast may suffer.
Wavy or tight edges can cause misfeeding and alignment
anomalies. The moisture content of the paper should be 4 to
6%. To ensure the proper moisture content, it is important to
store the paper in a controlled environment. Some tips on
moisture control are:
•Store paper in a cool, dry location.
•Keep the paper in its wrapping as long as possible. Rewrap
paper that is not in use.
•Store paper in its original carton. Place a pallet, etc., under
the carton to separate it from the floor.
•After removing paper from storage, let it stand in the same
room as the printer for 48 hours before use.
•Avoid leaving paper where it is exposed to heat, sunlight, or
damp.
Paper Grain
When paper is manufactured, it is cut into sheets with the
grain running parallel to the length (long grain) or parallel to
the width (short grain). Short grain paper can cause feeding
problems in the printer. All paper used in the printer should
be long grain.
Other Paper Properties
Porosity: Refers to the density of the paper structure; that is,
how openly or compactly the fibers are bonded.
Stiffness: Limp paper can buckle inside the printer, while
paper that is too stiff may bind. Either way the result is a
paper jam.
Curl: Most paper has a natural tendency to curl in one
direction. The paper should be loaded so that the natural curl
is downward, to counteract the upward curl imparted by the
printer. Printed sheets will then come out flat. Most paper
also has a top and bottom surface. Loading instructions are
usually given on the paper package.
NOTE
If the paper is considerably curled in one direction, e.g. when the
paper was used to print on one side, try to roll the paper in the
opposite direction to counteract the curl. Printed sheets will then
come out flat.
Electrostatic properties: During the printing process, the
paper is electrostatically charged to attract the toner. The
paper must be able to release this charge so that printed
sheets do not cling together in the output tray.
Whiteness: The contrast of the printed page depends on the
whiteness of the paper. Whiter paper provides a sharper,
brighter appearance.
Quality control: Uneven sheet size, corners that are not
square, ragged edges, welded (uncut) sheets, and crushed
edges and corners can cause the printer to malfunction in
various ways. A quality paper supplier should take
considerable care to ensure that these problems do not occur.
Packaging: Paper should be packed in a sturdy carton to
protect it from damage during transport. Quality paper
obtained from a reputable supplier is usually properly
packaged.

Chapter 2 Paper Selection
Processing: It is recommended that you do not use processed
paper such as follows even if they satisfy basic paper
specifications.
•Shiny paper
•Paper with watermarks
•Surface printed paper
•Perforated paper
•Paper with holes
Special Paper
This section explains printing on special paper. The page
printer can use the following types of special paper. In this
case, set the media type according to the table below.

When using the above types of paper, be sure to use products
that are specified for use with photocopiers and/or page
printers. Feed paper other than colored paper or pre-printed
paper from the MP (multi-purpose) tray. Use paper that is
sold specifically for use with copiers (heat-fusing type). Label
paper and envelopes should not be placed in the cassette; they
must be fed manually and delivered in the face up stack.
Since the composition and quality of special paper vary
considerably, special paper is more likely than white bond
paper to give trouble during printing. No liability will be
assumed if moisture, etc., given off in printing on special
paper causes harm to the machine or operator.
NOTE
Before purchasing any type of special paper, test a sample on
the printer and check that print quality is satisfactory.
Specifications for each type of special paper are given below.
2-4
Transparency (Overhead Projection Film)
To avoid trouble, transparency must be delivered face-up.
If transparency jams frequently, pull the top of the sheet very
gently as it leaves the printer.
Chapter 2 Paper Selection
An envelope is a more complex object than a single sheet of
paper. For this reason, it may not be possible to obtain
consistent print quality over the entire envelope surface.
Adhesive-Backed Labels
The basic rule for printing on adhesive labels is that the
adhesive must never come into contact with any part of the
printer. Adhesive paper sticking to the drum or rollers will
damage the printer.
Label paper must be manually fed.
Label paper has a structure comprised of three layers, as
shown in the figure below. The top sheet is printed on. The
adhesive layer consists of pressure-sensitive adhesives. The
carrier sheet (also called the linear or backing sheet) holds
the labels until use. Due to the complexity of its composition,
adhesive-backed label paper is particularly likely to give
trouble in printing.
Top sheet (White
bond paper)
Adhesive
Many envelopes have a diagonal grain orientation (See Paper
Grain on page 2-3). This orientation is more likely to wrinkle
and crease on its way through the printer. Before purchasing
envelopes for use with the printer, test a sample to verify the
envelope’s suitability.
Do not use envelopes that have an encapsulated liquid
adhesive.
Avoid long printing runs consisting of envelopes only.
Extensive envelope printing can cause premature printer
wear.
NOTE
To avoid jamming due to curled envelopes, do not leave more
than approximately 10 printed envelopes stacked in the paper
trays during multiple envelope printing.
Carrier sheet
Adhesive label paper must be entirely covered by its top
sheet, with no spaces between the individual labels. Labels
with spaces in between are apt to peel off, causing serious
paper jam problems.
Some label paper is manufactured with an extra margin of
top sheet around the edge. Do not remove the extra top sheet
from the carrier sheet until after printing is finished.
Acceptable
Unacceptable
Top
sheet
Preprinted Paper
Preprinted paper should have a bond paper base and meet the
specifications listed in the table on page 2-2. The preprinted
ink must be able to withstand the heat of fusing during the
printing process, and must not be affected by silicone oil.
Do not use paper with any kind of surface treatment, such as
the type of paper commonly used for calendars.
Recycled Paper
Select recycled paper that meets the same specifications as
the white bond paper (see Paper Specifications on page 2-1)
except whiteness.
Carrier
sheet
The table below lists the specifications for adhesive label
paper.
Item
Colored Paper
Colored paper should satisfy the same conditions as white
bond paper, listed in Paper Specifications on page 2-1. In
addition, the pigments used in the paper must be able to
withstand the heat of fusing during the printing process (up
to 200 °C or 392 °F).

interface. The parallel interface mode can be activated from
the operator panel. See Changing Parallel Interface Modes on
page 1-43.
NOTE
Use a parallel printer cable that complies with the IEEE1284
standard.
Auto (default)
The printer automatically changes its communication mode
to the one the host computer is currently using.
Normal
The printer uses the standard communication method
prescribed for Centronics interfaces.
High-speed
This mode enables faster data transmission between the
printer and the host computer. (Select this mode if printing
problems occur when the printer is connected to a
workstation.)
Nibble (high)
High speed data communication is used in compliance with
the IEEE1284 standard. Ordinarily, you should leave this
setting unchanged.
Interface Signals
The pins of the parallel interface connector carry the signals
listed in the following table Parallel Connector Pin
Assignment. Asterisks in the table indicate signals that are
active low. The table also indicates whether each signal is
incoming or outgoing with respect to the printer.

Appendix C Host Computer Interface
RS-232C Cable Connection
Obtaining a Suitable RS-232C Cable
Make sure that the RS-232C cable is wired correctly. The cable
must be a null modem cable; that is, one in which pin 2 on
either end of the cable is connected to pin 3 on the other end.
You cannot use a straight cable such as IBM communication
adapter cable type 1502067 unless you purchase a null modem
adapter.
With Windows 95/98/Me, make settings as follows:
1
Click on the Start button in the Windows 95/98/Me
Task Bar and align the cursor with Settings, then
click on Control Panel from among the items displayed.
2
The control panel folder opens. Double click on System.
3
System Properties opens. Click on the Device Manager tab, then click on the COM port to be used.
4
Click on the Properties button.
5
The Properties sheet is displayed for the selected
COM port. Click on the Port Settings tab and set the
port properties.
6
After setting the properties, click the OK button.
Connecting the Printer to the Computer
Check that the power of both the printer and the computer is
switched off.
1
Discharge yourself of static electricity by touching a
metal object such as a door knob.
2
Remove the plastic cap from the printer’s RS-232C
interface connector.
3
Plug the printer end of the RS-232C interface cable
into the printer’s RS-232C connector and screw it in
place.
4
Plug the other end of the cable into the computer’s
RS-232C interface connector.
5
Switch on the printer’s power.
6
The printer’s RS-232C parameters are factory-set to
the following values:
Baud rate=9600 bps, data bits (character length)=8
bits, stop bits=1, parity=none
The two RS-232C protocols are XON/XOFF and
DTR. The printer performs both of them
simultaneously, using positive logic for DTR.
If you are uncertain as to the printer’s current
parameter settings, you can reset them to the values
listed above. See Changing Serial Interface
Parameters on page 1-43.
7
Set the computer to the same parameters as the
printer. On many computers this can be done by setting DIP switches before the power is turned on. Another method is as follows:
C-5
Appendix C Host Computer Interface
In DOS, enter the following commands:
C:\>MODE COM1:96,N,8,1,P
C:\>MODE LPT1:=COM1
To test the interface, enter the following:
CTRL P
C:\>DIR
CTRL P
The software settings made using the above procedures are
temporary. On most computers, permanent settings must be
made with DIP switches.

Cassette mode
This is an operation mode for the MP tray. When this mode is
used, approximately 100 sheets of plain paper can be fed
continuously, the same as for the cassette. Cassette mode is
specified as the factory setting, but you can change this
setting from the printer’s operator panel.
dpi (dots per inch)
This indicates the number of dots printed per inch, and is the
unit of printer resolution.
EcoPrint
This is a printing mode that controls toner consumption.
Pages printed in the Ecoprint mode are lighter than pages
printed in the normal mode. The default setting is Off.
Emulation
This refers to emulation of manufacturers’ printers. The
printer emulates operation of the following printers: PCL 6,
KC-GL, Line printer, IBM Proprinter, DIABLO 630, EPSON
LQ-850, and KPDL.
Expansion memory
This option is used to increase printer memory. The printer
has two expansion sockets, into both of which you can install
a 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, or 128 MB DIMM (Dual Inline
Memory Module). See your Kyocera Mita dealer to purchase
the DIMM that is best suited for use with this printer.
First mode
This is an operation mode for the MP tray. If there is paper
inserted in the MP tray, the all paper will always feed from
there even if another paper source is selected.
IEEE1284
This is a standard used when connecting a printer to a
computer, and was established by the Institute of Electrical
and Electronic Engineers in 1994.
KIR (Kyocera Image Refinement)
This is Kyocera Mita’s original smoothing function. It uses
software to enhance the printer’s resolution and produce
high-quality printing. The default setting is On.
Kyocera Mita Digital Library
This is contained on the CD-ROM supplied with the printer.
The contents of the CD-ROM include manuals, printer
drivers, and various utilities.

This is located on the top of the printer. The panel consists of
the message display, three indicators and eight keys. The
message display shows the printer’s status. Press the keys
when you want to switch the printer between online and
offline status, or to cancel printing.
Outline font
With outline fonts, characters outlines are represented by
numerical expressions, and fonts can be enlarged, reduced, or
painted in different ways by changing the numeric values of
those expressions. Printing remains clear even if you enlarge
fonts, since the letters are defined by an outline. You can
specify font size in steps of 0.25 points up to 999.75 points.
Parallel Interface
With this interface, data transfer between the printer and the
computer takes place on 8-bit chunks. The printer can
perform IEEE1284 compatible bi-directional
communications.
Glossary-1
