Regulatory Compliance Statements
Wireless Guidance
A full declaration, defining the relevant Directives and referenced standards
can be obtained from your Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. representative.
Low power, Radio LAN type devices (radio frequency (RF) wireless
communication devices), operating in the 2.4 GHz/5 GHz Band, may be
present (embedded) in your printer system. The following section is a general
overview of considerations while operating a wireless device.
EC Certification
Certification to 1999/5/EC Radio Equipment & Telecommunications
Terminal Equipment Directive (FAX)
Additional limitations, cautions, and concerns for specific countries are listed
in the specific country sections (or country group sections). The wireless
devices in your system are only qualified for use in the countries identified by
the Radio Approval Marks on the system rating label. If the country you will
be using the wireless device in, is not listed, please contact your local Radio
Approval agency for requirements. Wireless devices are closely regulated
and use may not be allowed.
This Samsung product has been self-certified by Samsung for pan-European
single terminal connection to the analogue public switched telephone
network (PSTN) in accordance with Directive 1999/5/EC. The product has
been designed to work with the national PSTNs and compatible PBXs of the
European countries:
In the event of problems, you should contact the Euro QA Lab of Samsung
Electronics Co., Ltd. in the first instance.
The power output of the wireless device or devices that may be embedded in
your printer is well below the RF exposure limits as known at this time.
Because the wireless devices (which may be embedded into your printer)
emit less energy than is allowed in radio frequency safety standards and
recommendations, manufacturer believes these devices are safe for use.
Regardless of the power levels, care should be taken to minimize human
contact during normal operation.
The product has been tested against TBR21. To assist in the use and
application of terminal equipment which complies with this standard, the
European Telecommunication Standards Institute (ETSI) has issued an
advisory document (EG 201 121) which contains notes and additional
requirements to ensure network compatibility of TBR21 terminals. The
product has been designed against, and is fully compliant with, all of the
relevant advisory notes contained in this document.
As a general guideline, a separation of 20 cm (8 inches) between the wireless
device and the body, for use of a wireless device near the body (this does not
include extremities) is typical. This device should be used more than 20 cm
(8 inches) from the body when wireless devices are on and transmitting.
European Radio Approval Information
(for products fitted with EU-approved radio devices)
This transmitter must not be collocated or operation in conjunction with any
other antenna or transmitter.
Low power, Radio LAN type devices (radio frequency (RF) wireless
communication devices), operating in the 2.4 GHz/5 GHz band, may be
present (embedded) in your printer system which is intended for home or
office use. This section is only applicable if these devices are present. Refer
to the system label to verify the presence of wireless devices.
Some circumstances require restrictions on wireless devices. Examples of
common restrictions are listed below:
v
Radio frequency wireless communication can interfere with
equipment on commercial aircraft. Current aviation
regulations require wireless devices to be turned off while
traveling in an airplane. IEEE 802.11 (also known as wireless
Ethernet) and Bluetooth communication devices are
examples of devices that provide wireless communication.
The wires in the mains lead have the following color code:
• Green and Yellow:
Earth
• Blue:
Neutral
• Brown:
Live
If the wires in the mains lead do not match the colors marked in your plug, do
the following:
In environments where the risk of interference to other
devices or services is harmful or perceived as harmful, the
option to use a wireless device may be restricted or
eliminated. Airports, Hospitals, and Oxygen or flammable gas
laden atmospheres are limited examples where use of
wireless devices may be restricted or eliminated. When in
environments where you are uncertain of the sanction to use
wireless devices, ask the applicable authority for
authorization prior to use or turning on the wireless device.
You must connect the green and yellow wire to the pin marked by the letter
“E” or by the safety ‘Earth symbol’ or colored green and yellow or green.
You must connect the blue wire to the pin which is marked with the letter “N”
or colored black.
You must connect the brown wire to the pin which is marked with the letter “L”
or colored red.
You must have a 13 amp fuse in the plug, adaptor, or at the distribution board.
Every country has different restrictions on the use of wireless
devices. Since your system is equipped with a wireless
device, when traveling between countries with your system,
check with the local Radio Approval authorities prior to any
move or trip for any restrictions on the use of a wireless
device in the destination country.
If your system came equipped with an internal embedded
wireless device, do not operate the wireless device unless all
covers and shields are in place and the system is fully
assembled.
Wireless devices are not user serviceable. Do not modify
them in any way. Modification to a wireless device will void the
authorization to use it. Please contact manufacturer for
service.
Only use drivers approved for the country in which the device
will be used. See the manufacturer System Restoration Kit, or
contact manufacturer Technical Support for additional
information.
Replacing the Fitted Plug (for UK Only)
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.
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.
Warning
If you cut off the moulded plug, get rid of it straight away.
You cannot rewire the plug and you may receive an electric shock if you
plug it into a socket.
Important warning: You must earth this machine.

Setting up the hardware
Caution
The area should be well-ventilated and away from direct sunlight or
sources of heat, cold, and humidity. Do not set the machine close to
the edge of your desk or table.
This equipment will be inoperable when mains power
fails.
Note
When the printer driver is in installation process, the driver
installer detects the locale information of your operating
system, and sets the default paper size for your machine. If
you use the different Windows locale, you must change the
paper size of your machine for matching your commonly
used paper size. Go to the printer properties to change the
paper size after installation completes.
Caution
When you move the machine, do not tilt or turn it upside down.
Otherwise, the inside of the machine may be contaminated by
toner, which can cause damage to the machine or bad printing
quality.
Printing is suitable for altitudes under 1,000 m (3,281 ft). Refer to
the altitude setting to optimize your printing. See page 3.9 for more
information.
3.1
<Getting Started>
Setting up the network
In a few situations the IP address must be set manually. This is called a
static IP and is often required in corporate Intranets for security reasons.
You need to set up the network protocols on the machine (;printer) to use
it in the network environment. If you use your machine in the wired
network, refer to 'Using a wired network'. If you use your network printer
in the wireless network, refer to See "Using a wireless network" on
page 3.4.
• DHCP IP assignment: Connect your machine to the network, and
wait a few minutes for the DHCP server to assign an IP address to the
machine. Then, print the Network Configuration Report as explained
above. If the report shows that the IP address has changed, the
assignment was successful. You will see the new IP address on the
report.
• Static IP assignment: Use SetIP program to change the IP address
from your computer.
Note
If you want to use the USB cable, connect the cable between a
computer and you machine. Then, refer to the software installation
in Software section.
In an office environment, we recommend that you contact a network
administrator to set this address for you.
IP setting using the SetIP program
Supported network environments
The following procedure is based on Windows XP.
The following table shows the network environments supported by the
machine:
Item
This program is for manually setting the network IP address of your
machine using its MAC address to communicate with the machine. MAC
address is a hardware serial number of the network interface and can be
found in the Network Configuration Report.

Wireless Networks
• Infrastructure mode: An Infrastructure mode network is the most
common wireless network configuration in a home or office consisting
of a wireless router, or an access point, that connects all the
computers and other networked devices into a common local area
network (LAN).
The access point provides a special high speed connection to a Cable
or DSL modem or other wide area network (WAN) device that
connects the LAN to the Internet or a Corporate Intranet. Most
Infrastructure mode networks use a DHCP Server to automatically
assign the IP address and set other network parameters. If you know

that you are connecting to an Infrastructure mode network with an
access point, and the IP address is assigned by a DHCP server, you
may proceed to the Configuring the machine’s wireless network
part after reviewing the following parts on printing a Network
Configuration Report.
If you know that you are connecting to an Infrastructure mode network
with an access point, but it does not have DHCP address assignment,
or you are required to set a static IP, proceed to the Setting IP
address part before going to Configuring the machine’s wireless
network part after reviewing the following parts on printing a Network
Configuration Report.
Using a wireless network
You must set up the network protocols on your machine to use it on your
network. This chapter will show you how this is easily accomplished.
Before starting, please locate the crossover network cable and the Printer
Software Installation CD-ROM provided with your machine (;printer). You
may need to contact a network administrator or the person who has set
up your wireless network for information regarding the configuration.
If you are already aware of your machine’s IP address configuration and
this IP address is available, you may go to Configuring the machine’s
wireless network part directly. Otherwise you have to follow all steps
from Checking your Network Environments part.
• Ad-hoc mode : An Ad-hoc mode network provides peer to peer
communication. In an Ad-hoc mode network, wireless devices and
computers communicate directly with each other, without using an
access point. They can share files and machines, but may not be able
to access the Internet. The machine receives print jobs fromwireless
computers directly.
Checking your Network Environments
IP address
Every device in a network is identified by a unique numerical address
called an IP Address. Your machine came with a default IP address of
192.0.0.192, and you can verify this by printing out a Network
Configuration Report. In most cases a new IP address will be
automatically assigned by a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
Server) located on the network.
In a few situations the IP address must be set manually. This is called a
static IP and is often required in corporate Intranets for security reasons.
We have provided an easy to use utility program on the Printer Software
CD-ROM named SetIP that can change the address for you.
If you know that you are connecting to an ad-hoc mode network without
an access point, proceed to the Setting IP address part before going to
Configuring the machine’s wireless network part after reviewing the
following parts on printing a Network Configuration Report.
In an office environment, we recommend that you contact a network
administrator to set this address for you.

In a few situations the IP address must be set manually. This is called a
static IP and is often required in corporate Intranets for security reasons.
Macintosh OS
• Open System Preferences.
• Click Sharing.
• Click the Firewall menu.
• Turn firewall off.
• DHCP IP assignment: Connect your machine to the network, and
wait a few minutes for the DHCP server to assign an IP address to the
machine. Then, print the Network Configuration Report as explained
above. If the report shows that the IP address has changed, the
assignment was successful. You will see the new IP address on the
report.

IP setting using the SetIP program
The following procedure is based on Windows XP.
This program is for manually setting the network IP address of your
machine using its MAC address to communicate with the machine. MAC
address is a hardware serial number of the network interface and can be
found in the Network Configuration Report.
Note
• You only need to run this program if your network requires a
static IP address. Otherwise, you may proceed to the
Configuring the machine’s wireless network part of this
document. If you are unsure of this requirement ask the system
administrator or the person who has set up your local network.
• You can only use the SetIP program when your machine is
connected to a network or directly connected to a PC with the
crossover network cable included with your machine. In most
cases we recommend using the crossover cable. You will be
asked to connect this cable in a moment.

Guidelines for selecting and storing print media
Selecting print media
When selecting or loading paper, or other print materials, keep these
guidelines in mind:
You can print on a variety of print media, such as plain paper, 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:
• Always use print media that conform with the specifications listed on
page 4.3.
• 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 machines.
• 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 tray to avoid
paper jams.
• To prevent print media, such as transparencies and label sheets, from
sticking together, remove them as they print out.
• 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:
• The type, size and weight of the print media for your machine are
described later in this section.
• Desired outcome: The print media you choose should be appropriate
for your project.
• Brightness: Some print media are whiter than others and produce
sharper, more vibrant images.
• Surface smoothness: The smoothness of the print media affects how
crisp the printing looks on the paper.
Note
• 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.

Guidelines for special print media
Media type
Guidelines
Transparencies
• To avoid damaging the machine, use only
transparencies designed for use in laser
machines.
• Transparencies used in the machine must be
able to withstand the machine’s fusing
temperature. Check your machine’s specification
to view the fusing temperature, see page 11.1.
• 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.
Media type
Labels
• To avoid damaging the machine, use only labels
designed for use in laser machines.
• When selecting labels, consider the following
factors:
- Adhesives: The adhesive material should be
stable at your machine’s fusing temperature.
Check your machine’s specification to view the
fusing temperature, see page 11.1.
- 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.
Card stock or
custom-sized
materials
• Do not print on media smaller than 105 mm wide
or 148 mm long.
• In the software application, set margins at least
6.4 mm away from the edges of the material.
Caution
Recommended media: Transparency for a
Color Laser Printers produced by HP,
Xerox and 3M. It is not recommended to
use paperbacked transparencies such as
Xerox 3R91334, which can cause a jam or
be scratched.
Note
If your machine does not feed the
transparency print media properly, put a
blank sheet of paper under the
transparency, and try again.
Guidelines
Note
If you experience jams with card stock
feeding, turn the paper around and try
again.
Preprinted
paper
4.4
• Letterhead must be printed with heat-resistant
ink that will not melt, vaporize, or release
hazardous emissions when subjected to the
printer’s fusing temperature for 0.1 second.
Check your machine’s specification to view the
fusing temperature, see page 11.1.
• 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.

Printing a machine report
Press and hold Stop/Clear button for about 4 seconds to print a machine report.
Cleaning your machine
To maintain print quality, follow the cleaning procedures below each time
the toner cartridge is replaced or if print and scan quality problems occur.
Caution
• Cleaning the machine cabinet with cleaning materials that
contain large amounts of alcohol, solvent, or other strong
substances can discolor or damage the cabinet.
• If your machine or its surrounding is contaminated with toner,
we recommend you to use cloth or tissue dampened with
water to clean it. If you use a vacuum cleaner, toner blows in
the air and might be harmful for you.
• After cleaning, wipe the cabinet to remove any moisture.
Caution
Cleaning the outside
• Do not touch the green surface, the OPC drum or the front of
the toner cartridge, with your hands or any other material.
Use the handle on each cartridge in order to avoid touching
this area.
• If you leave the top cover open for more than a few minutes,
the OPC drum can be exposed to light. This will cause
damage to the OPC drum. Close the top cover should the
installation need to be halted for any reason.
Make sure to brush off the dirt on the cloth provided before cleaning the
cabinet. Make sure to spray water 4 to 6 times onto the cloth provided, or
another cloth suitable for this purpose before cleaning the cabinet, wiping
in on direction.
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. Contact a service
representative to clean the parts inside the machine.
8.1
<Maintenance>
3
With a dry lint-free cloth, wipe away any dust and spilled toner from
the toner cartridges area and their cavities.
5
Slide the toner cartridge back into the machine.
6
Hold the top cover and close it slowly and carefully, until the cover is
the cover is securely latched.
Note
If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and
wash it in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric.

heavy.
8.2
<Maintenance>
Cleaning the scan unit
Maintaining the cartridge
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.
1
Slightly dampen a soft lint-free cloth or paper towel with water.
2
Lift and open the scanner lid.
3
Wipe the surface of the scanner glass until it is clean and dry.
Toner cartridge storage
Toner cartridges contain components that are sensitive to light,
temperature, and humidity. Samsung suggests users follow the
recommendations to ensure the optimum performance, highest quality,
and longest life from your new Samsung toner cartridge.
Store this cartridge in the same environment as the printer it will be used
in; this should be in controlled office temperature and humidity conditions.
The toner cartridge should remain in its original, unopened package until
installation – If original packaging is not available, cover the top opening
of the cartridge with paper and store in a dark cabinet.
Opening the cartridge package prior to use dramatically shortens its
useful shelf and operating life. Do not store on the floor. If the toner
cartridge is removed from the printer, always store the cartridge:
• Inside the protective bag from the original package
• Correct side up in a horizontal position (not standing on end)
• Do not store consumables in;
- Temperature greater than 40°C (104°F).
- Humidity range less than 20% and not greater than 80%.
- An environment with extreme changes in humidity or temperature.
- Direct sunlight or room light.
- Dusty places.
- A car for a long period of time.
- An environment where corrosive gases are present.
• An environment with salty air.
Handling instructions
• Do not touch the surface of the photosensitive drum in the cartridge.
• Do not expose the cartridge to unnecessary vibrations or shock.

Close the scanner lid.
Samsung Electronics does not recommend or approve the use of nonSamsung brand toner cartridges in your printer including generic, store
brand, refilled, or remanufactured toner cartridges.
Caution
• Samsung’s printer warranty does not cover damage to the
machine caused by the use of a refilled, remanufactured, or
non-Samsung brand toner cartridge.
Estimated cartridge life
Estimated cartridge life (the life of the toner cartridge yield) depends on
the amount of toner that print jobs require. The actual print-out number
may vary depending on the print density of the pages you print on,
operating environment, printing interval, media type, and/or media size.
For example, if you print a lot of graphics, the consumption of the toner is
high and you may need to change the cartridge more often.
8.3
<Maintenance>

Redistributing toner
Holding side edges of the toner cartridge, thoroughly rock it from
side to side to redistribute the toner.
When small amount of toner is left in the cartridge, the toner
LED( ) blinks slowly. It may cause faded or light areas on a paper. You
can temporarily improve print quality by redistributing the toner.
For detailed information about error message, see page 9.7.

Printing quality problems
Condition
If the inside of the machine is dirty or paper has been loaded improperly,
you may notice a reduction in print quality. See the table below to clear
the problem.
Condition
Suggested solutions
Light or faded print
If a vertical white streak or faded area appears
on the page:
• The toner supply is low. You may be able to
temporarily extend the toner cartridge life. If
this does not improve the print quality, install
a new toner cartridge.
• The paper may not meet paper
specifications; for example, the paper may
be too moist or rough. (See "Specifications
on print media" on page 4.3.)
• 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 refer to Software
section, respectively.
• A combination of faded or smeared defects
may indicate that the toner cartridge needs
cleaning. Contact a service representative.
• The surface of the LSU part inside the
machine may be dirty. Clean the LSU (see
page 8.2).
Toner specks
Dropouts
Suggested solutions
White Spots
White spots appear on the page:
• The paper path may need cleaning. Contact
a service representative.
Vertical lines
If black vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The toner cartridge has probably been
scratched. Remove the toner cartridge and
install a new one.
If white vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The surface of the LSU part inside the
machine may be dirty. Clean the LSU (see
page 8.2).
• The paper may not meet specifications; for
example, the paper may be too moist or
rough. (See "Specifications on print
media" on page 4.3.)
• The paper path may need cleaning. Contact
a service representative.
Color or Black
background
If the amount of background shading becomes
unacceptable:
• Change to a lighter weight paper. (See
"Specifications on print media" on page 4.3.)
• Check the environmental conditions: very
dry conditions (low humidity) or a high level
of humidity (higher than 80% RH) can
increase the amount of background
shading.
• Remove the old toner cartridge, and then
install a new one. (See "Replacing the toner
cartridge" on page 8.5.)
Toner smear
• Clean the inside of the machine. Contact a
service representative to clean the inside of
the machine.
• Check the paper type and quality. (See
"Specifications on print media" on page 4.3.)
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
"Specifications on print media" on page 4.3.)
• 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.
9.10
<Troubleshooting>
Condition
Vertical repetitive
defects
Background scatter
Misformed
characters
Page skew
Suggested solutions
Condition
If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side
of the page at even intervals:
• Clean the inside of the machine. Contact a
service representative to clean the inside of
the machine. After cleaning the inside of the
machine, if you still have the same
problems, install a new toner cartridge of the
problem color. See "Replacing the toner
cartridge" on page 8.5.
• 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.
Suggested solutions
Curl or wave
• Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
• Check the paper type and quality. Both high
temperature and humidity can cause paper
curl. (See "Specifications on print media" on
page 4.3.)
• Turn the stack of paper over in the tray. Also
try rotating the paper 180° in the tray.
Wrinkles or creases
• Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
• Check the paper type and quality. (See
"Specifications on print media" on page 4.3.)
• Turn the stack of paper over in the tray. Also
try rotating the paper 180° in the tray.
Background scatter results from bits of toner
randomly distributed on the printed page.
• The paper may be too damp. Try printing
with a different batch of paper. Do not open
packages of paper until necessary so that
the paper does not absorb too much
moisture.
• If background scatter covers the entire
surface area of a printed page, adjust the
print resolution through your software
application or in printer properties.
Back of printouts
are dirty
Check for leaking toner. Clean the inside of
the machine. Contact a service
representative.
• If characters are improperly formed and
producing hollow images, the paper stock
may be too slick. Try different paper. (See
"Specifications on print media" on page 4.3.)
• If characters are improperly formed and
producing a wavy effect, the scanner unit
may need service. Contact a service
representative.
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
and install a new one. (See "Replacing the
toner cartridge" on page 8.5.)
• The machine may require repair. Contact a
service representative.
• Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
• Check the paper type and quality. (See
"Specifications on print media" on page 4.3.)
• Ensure that the paper or other material is
loaded correctly and the guides are not too
tight or too loose against the paper stack.

contamination
occurs.
Suggested solutions
You machine is probably being used at an
altitude of 1,000 m (3,281 ft) or above. The
high altitude may affect the print quality from
loose toner or light imaging. You can set this
option through the Printer Tab in printer
driver’s properties. See page 3.9.
Copying problems
Character voids are white areas within parts of
characters that should be solid black:
• If you are using transparencies, try another
type of transparency. Because of the
composition of transparencies, some
character voids are normal.
• You may be printing on the wrong surface of
the paper. Remove the paper and turn it
around.
• The paper may not meet paper
specifications. (See "Specifications on print
media" on page 4.3.)
If horizontally aligned black streaks or smears
appear:
• The toner cartridge may be installed
improperly. Remove the cartridge and
reinsert it.
• The toner cartridge may be defective.
Remove the toner cartridge and install a
new one. (See "Replacing the toner
cartridge" on page 8.5.)
• If the problem persists, the machine may

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.

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.

Problem
I encounter error
“Cannot open port

When printing a
document over the
network in SuSE 9.2,
the machine does not
print.
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.
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).

12 Glossary
LED
A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor device that indicates the
status of a machine.
Control Panel
Print Media
A control panel is a flat area where control or monitoring instruments are
displayed. They are typically found in top or front of the machine.
Media such as papers, labels, and transparencies which can be used on
a printer, a scanner, a fax or, a copier.
Coverage
OPC Drum
This is the printing term used for toner usage measurement on printing
and generally used as 5% coverage. 5% coverage means that an A4
sided paper has about 5% image or text on it. So, if the paper or original
has complicated images or lots of text on it, the coverage will be over 5%
and at the same time, toner usage will be as much as the coverage.
A mechanism that makes a virtual image for print using a laser beam
emitted from a laser printer, and it is usually green or gray-colored and
cylinder-shaped. An exposing unit of a drum is slowly worn away by its
usage of the printer, and it should be replaced appropriately since it
becomes scratched from grit in paper.
Default
PDF
The first set values.
Portable Document Format (PDF) is a proprietary file format developed
by Adobe Systems for representing two-dimensional documents in a
device-independent and resolution-independent format.
DPI
This is the measurement of resolution which is used for printing or
scanning. Generally, more dots per inch result in a higher resolution,
more visible detail in the image, and a larger file size.
PPM
Pages Per Minute. PPM shows the printer's speed, how many pages a
printer can actually print per minute.
Duty Cycle
Duty cycle is the page quantity which does not affect printer performance
for a month. Generally the printer has the lifespan limitation such as
pages per year. The lifespan means the average capacity of print-outs,
usually within the warranty period. For example, if the duty cycle is 48,000
pages per month assuming 20 working days, a printer limits 2,400 pages
a day, which is not small amount.
PRN file
An interface for a device driver, this allows software to interact with the
device driver using standard input/output system calls, which simplifies
many tasks.
Resolution
Fuser Unit
The sharpness of an image, measured in dots per inch (dpi). The higher
the dpi, the greater the resolution.
This is the part of a laser printer that melts the toner onto the print media.
It consists of two hot rollers. After toner is transferred onto the paper, the
fuser unit applies heat and pressure to ensure that the toner stays on the
paper permanently, which is why paper is warm when it comes out of a
laser printer.
Toner cartridge
It is a kind of bottle within a machine like a printer which contains toner.
Toner is a powder used in laser printers and photocopiers which forms the
text and images on the printed paper. Toner can be melted by the heat of
the fuser, causing it to bind to the fibers in the paper.
Grayscale
Shades of gray that represent light and dark portions of an image when
color images are converted to grayscale; colors are represented by
various shades of gray.
URL

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.

If the CD-ROM is secondary master and the location to

The supplied CD-ROM provides you with Samsung’s Unified
Linux Driver package for using your machine with a Linux
computer.
Samsung’s Unified Linux Driver package contains printer and
scanner drivers, providing the ability to print documents and
scan images. The package also delivers powerful applications
for configuring your machine and further processing of the
scanned documents.
After the driver is installed on your Linux system, the driver
package allows you to monitor a number of machine devices via
fast ECP parallel ports and USB simultaneously.
The acquired documents can then be edited, printed on the
same local or network machine devices, sent by e-mail,
uploaded to an FTP site, or transferred to an external OCR
system.
The Unified Linux Driver package is supplied with a smart and
flexible installation program. You don't need to search for
additional components that might be necessary for the Unified
Linux Driver software: all required packages will be carried onto
your system and installed automatically; this is possible on a
wide set of the most popular Linux clones.

Sharing Ports Between Printers and Scanners
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.
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.
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.
