Handling Paper
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, trouble-free
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).

Handling Paper
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 highquality 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
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
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.
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 Sizes
Cassettes and an MP tray are available for the paper sizes listed in the
table below. 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°.

Paper with other sizes (custom sizes) can also be fed from the MP tray.
The minimum size paper for manual feed is 88 × 148 mm (3-1/2 × 5-13/16
inches), fed lengthwise. The maximum size is 297 × 450 mm (11-11/16 ×
17-3/4 inches).
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.)
Basis Weight
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.
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
45 to 200 g/m2 for the MP tray.

Thickness (Caliper)
Thick paper is referred to as high-caliper paper and thin paper as lowcaliper 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).
1-6
ADVANCED OPERATION GUIDE
Handling Paper
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.
ADVANCED OPERATION GUIDE
1-7
Handling Paper
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.

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 preprinted 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.
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.

If transparency jams frequently, pull the top of the sheet very gently as it
leaves the printer.
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
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.

Postcards
Fan the stack of postcards and align the edges before loading them in the
MP tray. Make sure the postcards you are going to set are not curled.
Feeding curled postcards may cause paper jams.
Some postcards have rough edges on the back (those are created when
the paper is cut). In this case, put the postcards on a flat place and rub the
edges with, for example, a ruler to smooth them.
Envelopes
The printer can print on envelopes using paper with a basis weight of 60 to
79 g/m2 (16 to 21 lb/ream). Envelopes must be manually fed.
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.
Many envelopes have a diagonal grain orientation (Refer to Paper
Grain on page 1-7). 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.
ADVANCED OPERATION GUIDE
1-11
Handling Paper
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. 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.
Thick Paper
Fan the stack of paper and align the edges before loading them in the MP
tray. Some types of paper have rough edges on the back (those are
created when the paper is cut). In this case, put the paper on a flat place
and rub the edges once or twice with, for example, a ruler to smooth them.
Feeding rough edged paper may cause paper jams.
NOTE: If the paper jams even after you smooth it out, load the paper in
the MP Tray with the leading edge raised up a few millimeters.
Colored Paper
Colored paper should satisfy the same conditions as white bond paper,
listed in Paper Specifications on page 1-3. 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).
Preprinted Paper
Preprinted paper should have a bond paper base. 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 (refer to Paper Specifications on page 1-3) except whiteness.
NOTE: Before purchasing recycled paper, test a sample on the printer
and check that the print quality is satisfactory.

e-MPS
e-MPS is an abbreviation for ‘enhanced-Multiple Printing System’ which
implements the following functions that are available from the printer
driver:
•
Job Retention
•
Job Storage
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 hard disk.
Since copies of the document are printed using the stored data, printing is
performed faster with less computer spooling time and less network traffic.
NOTE: To use the e-MPS system, an optional hard disk must be installed
in the printer. For details, refer to Options on page 4-1. Among the Job
Retention features, Proof-and-Hold and Private Print modes can also be
used with RAM disk as an alternative to a hard disk.
Job Retention
Job Retention has four modes as summarized below. These modes are
selected when you choose on the printer driver through the application
software:

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.
Virtual Mailbox
Virtual mailbox is part of Job Storage, which stores print jobs on the hard
disk without printing. It enables you to retrieve jobs later from the operation
panel.
Each mailbox may be used by an individual who desires to share the
printer in this mode. By default, each mailbox is numbered from ‘Tray 001,’
‘Tray 002,’ ... etc. To ‘post’ a job in one of these mailboxes, you assign a
numbered or named mailbox on the printer driver when printing.
To retrieve the stored job for printing, refer to Retrieving Jobs from Virtual
Mailbox (VMB) on page 2-29.
NOTE: The virtual mailbox can be used in PCL 6 emulation only.
2-24
ADVANCED OPERATION GUIDE
Using the Operation Panel
Using Quick Copy
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
operation panel.
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, refer to Changing e-MPS Configuration on page 2-31.
When the number of jobs reaches the limit, the oldest job will be
overwritten by the new one.
When the printer is turned off, all stored jobs will be deleted.

Using Proof-and-Hold
When you print multiple copies, this mode first prints one copy so that you
can proof it before continuing to print the remaining copies. Since you can
proof the printouts before printing the remaining copies, wastage of paper
can be reduced.
The printer prints one copy and, at the same time, saves the print job on
the hard disk. You can also change the number of copies when resuming
printing from the operation panel.
When the printer is turned off, all stored jobs will be deleted.
Printing Remaining Copies of a Proof and Hold Job
Printing a Proof-and-Hold job on the operation panel is similar to printing a
quick copy job. To print remaining copies of a job held in the printer:
Printing a Private Print/Stored Job
In private printing, you can specify that a job is not printed until you release
the job from the operation panel. When 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
operation panel. Thus, this function ensures confidentiality of the print job.
In the job retention mode, access codes are not mandatory, but can be set
on the printer driver if printing with the PIN security is required. Then, the
access code must be entered on the operation panel to print a stored job.
Print data will be stored in the hard disk/RAM disk after printing.

It also prints out the Directory Status List to confirm the directory or data
that is written in PJL or KPDL (PostScript).
Operating the 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 similarly to the hard disk except that the data is effective
only when the printer is powered up. The RAM disk is activated by factory
default.
To set up the RAM disk, the option hard disk must not be installed.
To use the RAM disk, confirm that the RAM disk is activated and enter the
desired size of the RAM disk in the manner described below. The
maximum RAM disk size can be calculated as follows:
Maximum RAM size = Total printer memory minus 36 MB
2-70
ADVANCED OPERATION GUIDE
Using the Operation Panel
For example, if the total memory installed in your printer (LP 4140) is
64 MB (Default), you can set 28 MB of RAM disk. If you attempt to set the
RAM disk size beyond this restriction, the printer automatically rounds it
down so that the size is always 36 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 use the
printer’s menu selection system. The printer’s menu selection system
allows you to perform the following operations on the RAM disk.

Activating the duplexer is done by selecting either short edge or long edge
binding mode.
NOTE: Duplex printing can be also performed from the MP tray. When
the MP tray is set to First Mode (First), the paper size and paper type will
be the same as those of the paper cassette currently set at the paper feed
source. If the paper to be fed from the MP tray does not match the paper
size and paper type of the current paper feed source cassette, a paper
jam may occur.
Binding Mode
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, shortedge. The figure below shows these binding setups.

HDD Security Function
Data Security Kit(C) has the functions of overwriting and encryption.
NOTE: To use the HDD Security feature, an option hard disk and the
Data Security Kit (C) need to be pre- installed.
Overwrite Function
The printer to install this security functions (hereinafter, the machine) by
temporarily storing print jobs on an internal hard disk. Printing is performed
using this data. Also, various data can be stored by a user. Even after the
printing is completed or the data is deleted by a user, the actual area of the
data remains stored on the hard disk until it is overwritten by other data.
Therefore, there is a possibility that confidential information will be leaked
if special tools are used to recover this remaining data.
The Security Kit overwrites and deletes (hereinafter, overwriting)
unnecessary data storage area of data that has been printed or deleted to
ensure that data cannot be recovered. Since the overwriting is performed
automatically, no special operation is required.
NOTE: The Security Kit immediately overwrites the data stored on the
hard disk when printing is cancelled while processing.
Overwrite Methods
Overwriting has the following two methods. You can change the method
anytime.
•
Once Overwrite
Overwrites the unnecessary data storage area (when overwriting) or
the entire area (when system initialization) of the hard disk with zeroes
to reject recovery of the data.
•
3-time Overwrite (Default)
Overwrites the same data area as for the Once Overwrite twice with a
random pattern and then a third and final time with zeroes. Because
overwriting is performed three times, even highly-sophisticated
recovery methods are unable to recover the data. Thus this method
provides higher security than the once overwrite method.
When overwriting large amount of data, this method may take longer than
the Once Overwrite.
ADVANCED OPERATION GUIDE
4-15
Options
Encryption Function
The printer temporarily stores print jobs on an internal hard disk. If the hard
disk is stolen, there is a risk that the data might be passed to unauthorized
parties or modified.
The Security Kit encrypts data before storing data on the hard disk. The
stored data cannot be decrypted by other than normal printing or
operations, higher security is provided in case the hard disk is stolen.
Since the encryption is performed automatically, no special operation is
required.
IMPORTANT: Although the encryption function strengthens data security,
data stored in the virtual mailbox can be decrypted by normal print
operations. Therefore do not store data that must not be leaked on the
virtual mailbox.

Glossary
AppleTalk
AppleTalk offers file sharing and printer sharing and it also enables you to
utilize application software that is on another computer on the same
AppleTalk network.
Default Gateway
This indicates the device, such as a computer or router, that serves as the
entrance/exit (gateway) for accessing computers outside of the network
that you are on. When no specific gateway is designated for a destination
IP address, data is sent to the host that is designated as the Default
Gateway.
DHCP (Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol)
This is a protocol that automatically resolves the IP address, Subnet Mask
and Gateway address on a TCP/IP network. Use of DHCP minimizes the
load of network administration, especially on network environments with a
large number of client computers where it is not specifically necessary to
assign a separate IP address to each client, including printers.
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
the 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 an
expansion socket, into which you can install a 128 MB, 256 MB and 512MB
DIMM (Dual Inline Memory Module). See your local dealer to
purchase the DIMM that is best suited for use with this printer.
Form Feed Timeout
While data is being sent to a printer, some pauses may occur. At this time,
the printer waits for the next data without making a page break. Form feed
timeout is a function to wait only a preset amount of time before it executes
an automatic page break. After the waiting period begins, once the
designated amount of time is exceeded, the printer will automatically
process the currently received data and print it out. If the machine has
received no print data for the last page, the printer ends processing of that
job without outputting paper.
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.
IP Address
(Internet Protocol Address)
ADVANCED OPERATION GUIDE
The Internet Protocol address is a unique number that represents a
specific computer in a network. The format of an IP Address is four
numbers separated by dots, e.g. 192.168.110.171. Each number should
be a decimal between 0 and 255.
Glossary-1
KIR (Kyocera Image
Refinement)
KPDL
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.
KPDL is Kyocera’s implementation of the PostScript page description
language Level3.
MP tray
This is an abbreviation for Multi-Purpose tray. The MP tray is used instead
of the cassette when printing on envelopes, postcards, transparency
sheets, and labels.
NetBEUI (NetBIOS Extended
User Interface)
An enhanced version of the NetBIOS protocol, it enables the utilization of
more advanced functions on small-scale networks than do other protocols
such as TCP/IP, etc.
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.
PostScript
This is a page description language developed by Adobe Systems, Inc. It
enables flexible font functions and highly-functional graphics, allowing
higher quality printing.
Printer driver
The printer driver makes it possible for you to print data created using
application software. The printer driver for the printer is on the
Software Library CD-ROM supplied with the printer. Install the printer
driver on the computer connected to the printer.
Sleep mode
This mode is activated after a specified amount of time elapses. The printer
goes into economy mode and a minimum amount of power is consumed.
You can change the amount of time before the printer goes into sleep
mode from the printer’s operation panel. The default setting is 15 minutes.
Status page
This lists printer conditions, such as the printer’s memory, the total number
of copies printed, and paper source settings.
Subnet Mask
This is a 32-bit numerical value that defines which bits of the IP address
specify the network address and which specify the host address.
TCP/IP (Transmission Control
Protocol/Internet Protocol)
TCP/IP is a suite of protocols designed to define the way computers and
other devices communicate with each other over a network.
USB (Universal Serial Bus)
Glossary-2
An interface standard for low to middle speed serial interfaces. This printer
supports Hi-Speed USB. The maximum transfer rate is 480 Mbps and the
maximum cable length is 5 meters (16 feet).
