Envelope
Printing successfully on envelopes depends upon the quality of the
envelopes.

Be sure the seam at both ends of the envelope extends all the
way to the corner of the envelope.

2 Unacceptable
•
•
•
Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one
flap that folds over to seal must use adhesives compatible with
the machine’s fusing temperature for 0.1 second (about 170°C
(338 °F)). The extra flaps and strips might cause wrinkling,
creasing, or jams, and may even damage the fuser.
•
For the best print quality, position margins no closer than 15 mm
from the edges of the envelope.
•
Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s seams meet.
When selecting envelopes, consider the following factors:
-
Weight: should not exceed 90 g/m2 otherwise; jams may
occur.
-
Construction: should lie flat with less than 6 mm curl and
should not contain air.
-
Condition: should not be wrinkled, nicked, nor damaged.
-
Temperature: should resist the heat and pressure of the
machine during operation.
Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp and wellcreased folds.
•
Do not use stamped envelopes.
•
Do not use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows, coated lining,
self-adhesive seals, or other synthetic materials.
•
Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes.
Transparency
In case of color printing using transparencies, the picture
quality would be lower than mono printing when the
printouts are used on the overhead projector.
Media and tray
To avoid damaging the machine, use only transparencies designed
for use in laser printers.
2. Menu overview and basic setup
40
•
To prevent transparencies from sticking to each other, do not let
the printed sheets stack up as they are being printed out.
•
Recommended media: Transparency for a color laser printer by
Xerox, such as 3R 91331(A4), 3R 2780 (Letter).
Labels
To avoid damaging the machine, use only labels designed for use in
laser printers.
•
Must withstand the machine’s fusing temperature.
•
Place them on a flat surface after removing them from the
machine.
•
Do not leave unused transparencies in the paper tray for long.
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.
•
Do not use transparencies that separate from the backing sheet.
•
When selecting labels, consider the following factors:
-
Adhesives: Should be stable at your machine’s fusing
temperature. Check your machine’s specifications to view the
fusing temperature (about 170°C (338°F)).
-
Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing
between them. Labels can peel off sheets that have spaces
between the labels, causing serious jams.
Media and tray
-
Curl: 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.

If printing quality problems occur or if you use your machine in a dusty enviroment, you need to clean your machine regularly to keep it in
the best printing condition and use your machine longer.
• Cleaning the cabinet of the machine with cleaning materials containing large amounts of alcohol, solvents, or other strong substances
can discolor or distort the cabinet.
• If your machine or the surrounding area is contaminated with toner, we recommend you use a cloth or tissue dampened with water
to clean it. If you use a vacuum cleaner, toner blows in the air and might be harmful to you.
5
Cleaning the outside
Clean the machine cabinet with a soft, lint-free cloth. Dampen the cloth slightly with water, but be careful not to let any water drip onto or
into the machine.
6
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 and reduces these problems.
Use a dry lint free cloth when cleaning the inside of the machine, be careful not to damage the transfer roller or any other inside parts.
Do not use solvents such as benzene or thinner. Printing quality problems can occur and cause damage to the machine.

Tips for avoiding paper jams
4. Troubleshooting
By selecting the correct media types, most paper jams can be avoided. To avoid paper jams, refer to the following guidelines:
•
Ensure that the adjustable guides are positioned correctly (see "Tray overview" on page 33).
•
Do not overload the tray. Ensure that the paper level is below the paper capacity mark on the inside of the tray.
•
Do not remove paper from the tray while your machine is printing.
•
Flex, fan, and straighten paper before loading.
•
Do not use creased, damp, or highly curled paper.
•
Do not mix paper types in a tray.
•
Use only recommended print media (see "Print media specifications" on page 108).

cable.
Wireless network setup
•
The machine does not support a wireless network. Check the
machine's user's guide included on the software CD supplied
with your machine and prepare a wireless network machine.
► Connecting Failure - Not Found SSID
•
The machine is unable to search the network name (SSID) you
have selected or entered. Check the network name (SSID) on your
access point and try connecting again.
•
Your access point is not turned on. Turn on your access point.
2. Using a network-connected machine
55
► Connecting Failure - Invalid Security
•
You configured security incorrectly. Check the configured
security on your access point and machine.
► Connecting Failure - General Connection Error
•
Your computer is not receiving a signal from your machine.
Check the USB cable and your machine’s power.
► Connecting Failure - Connected Wired Network
•
Your machine is connected with a wired network cable. Remove
the wired network cable from your machine.
► PC Connection Error
•
The configured network address is unable to connect between
your computer and machine.
-
For a DHCP network environment
The receives the IP address automatically (DHCP) when
computer is configured to DHCP.
-
For a Static network environment
The machine uses the static address when the computer is
configured to static address.
For example:
If the computer’s network information is as shown below:
▪
IP address: 169.254.133.42
Wireless network setup
▪
Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0
2. Using a network-connected machine
•
Then, the machine’s network information should be as below:
▪
IP address: 169.254.133.43
▪
Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0 (Use the computer’s subnet
mask.)
▪
Gateway: 169.254.133.1
56
Check whether firewall software (V3 or Norton and/or other virus
software) is blocking the communication.
If the computer and the machine are connected on the same
network and it cannot be found when searching, firewall
software might be blocking the communication. Refer to the
user's guide for the software to turn it off and try searching for the
machine again.
•
Check whether the machine's IP address is allocated correctly.
You can check the IP address by printing the network
configuration report.
If problems occur while using the machine on a network, check the
following:
•
Check whether the access point (or wireless router) has a
configured security (password). If it has a password, refer to the
access point (or wireless router) administrator.
For information on the access point (or wireless router), refer
to its own user's guide.
•
Check the machine's IP address. Reinstall the machine driver and
change the settings to connect to the machine on the network.
Due to the characteristics of DHCP, the allocated IP address could
change if the machine is not used for a long time or if the access
point has been reset.
•
Check the wireless environment. You might not be able to
connect to the network in the infrastructure environment where
you need to type in a user's information before connecting to
access point (or wireless router).
•
This machine only supports IEEE 802.11 b/g/n and Wi-Fi. Other
wireless communication types (e.g., Bluetooth) are not
supported.
Other problems
•
Your computer, access point (or wireless router), or machine may
not be turned on.
•
Check the wireless reception around the machine. If the router is
far from the machine or there are obstacles such as walls in its
path, you might have difficulty receiving the signal.
•
Cycle the power for the access point (or wireless router), machine,
and computer. Sometimes cycling the power can recover
network communication.
Wireless network setup
•
When using the ad hoc mode, in operating systems such as
Windows Vista, you might need to set the wireless connection
setting every time you use the wireless machine.
•
You cannot use Infrastructure mode and Ad hoc mode at the
same time for Samsung wireless network machines.
•
The machine is within the range of the wireless network.
•
The machine is located away from obstacles that could block the

wireless router) and the machine.
Make sure the machine and wireless access point (or wireless
router) are not separated by poles, walls, or support columns
containing metal or concrete.
•
The machine is located away from other electronic devices that
may interfere with the wireless signal.
Many devices can interfere with the wireless signal, including a
microwave oven and some Bluetooth devices.

Overlay
An overlay is text and/or images stored in the computer hard disk as a special file format that can be printed on any
document. Overlays are often used to take the place of letterhead paper. Rather than using preprinted letterhead,
you can create an overlay containing exactly the 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 machine: just print
the letterhead overlay on your document.
To use a page overlay, you must create a new page overlay containing your logo or image.
• The overlay document size must be the same as the document you print with the overlay. Do not create
an overlay with a watermark.
• The resolution of the overlay document must be the same as that of the document you will print with

highest quality, and longest life from your new Samsung toner
cartridge.
-
Direct sunlight or room light.
-
Dusty places.
-
A car for a long period of time.
-
An environment where corrosive gases are present.
Store this cartridge in the same environment in which the printer will
be used. This should be in controlled temperature and humidity
conditions. The toner cartridge (or imaging unit) should remain in its
original and 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.
-
An environment with salty air.
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 (or imaging unit) is removed from the printer, follow the
instructions below to store the toner cartridge (or imaging unit)
properly.
•
Store the cartridge inside the protective bag from the original
package.
•
Store lying flat (not standing on end) with the same side facing
up as if it were installed in the machine.
•
Do not store consumables in any of the following conditions:
-
Temperature greater than 40°C (104°F).
-
Humidity range not less than 20% and not greater than 80%.
-
An environment with extreme changes in humidity or
temperature.
95

Handling instructions
•
Do not touch the surface of the photoconductive drum in the
cartridge.
•
Do not expose the cartridge to unnecessary vibrations or shock.
•
Never manually rotate the drum, especially in the reverse
direction; this can cause internal damage and toner spillage.
2
Toner cartridge (or imaging unit) usage
Samsung Electronics does not recommend or approve the use of
non-Samsung brand toner cartridge (or imaging unit) in your printer
including generic, store brand, refilled, or remanufactured toner
cartridge (or imaging unit).
Storing the toner cartridge (or imaging unit)
Samsung’s printer warranty does not cover damage to the
machine caused by the use of a refilled, remanufactured, or
non-Samsung brand toner cartridges.
3
Estimated cartridge life
Estimated cartridge life the life of the toner cartridge (or imaging unit
yield) depends on the amount of toner that print jobs require. The
actual print yield 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 higher and you may need to change the
cartridge more often.
5. Maintenance
96
Tips for moving & storing your machine
•
When moving 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 reduce print
quality.

Suggested Solutions
• If a vertical white streak or faded area appears on the page, the toner supply is low. Install a new toner cartridge.
• The paper may not meet paper specifications; for example, the paper may be too moist or rough.
• 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.
• A combination of faded or smeared defects may indicate that the toner cartridge needs cleaning. Clean the

• The paper path may need cleaning. Contact a service representative.
If faded areas, generally rounded, occur randomly on the page:
• A single sheet of paper may be defective. Try reprinting the job.
• The moisture content of the paper is uneven or the paper has moist spots on its surface. Try a different brand of
paper.
• The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing processes can cause some areas to reject toner. Try a different kind or
brand of paper.
• Change the printer option and try again. Go to Printing Preferences, click the Paper tab, and set type to Thick
or Thicker (see Basic Guide for paper weights for each sheet).
If these steps do not correct the problem, contact a service representative.
White Spots
If white spots appear on the page:
• The paper is too rough and a lot of dirt from paper falls to the inner components within the machine, so the
transfer roller may be dirty. Clean the inside of your machine.
• The paper path may need cleaning. Clean the inside of your machine.

6. Troubleshooting
119
Suggested Solutions
If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of the page at even intervals:
• The imaging unit may be damaged. If you still have the same problem, remove the imaging unit and, install a
new one.
• 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.
Background scatter
A
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 occurs on an envelope, change the printing layout to avoid printing over areas that have
overlapping seams on the reverse side. Printing on seams can cause problems.
• If background scatter covers the entire surface area of a printed page, adjust the print resolution through your
software application or in Printing Preferences. Ensure the correct paper type is selected. For example: If

Common Linux problems
Condition
The machine does not
print.
Suggested solutions
• Check if the printer driver is installed in your system. Open Unified Driver Configurator and switch to the
Printers tab in the Printers configuration window to look at the list of available machines. Make sure that
your machine is displayed on the list. If not, open Add new printer wizard to set up your device.
• Check if the machine is started. Open Printers configuration and select your machine from the printers list.
Look at the description in the Selected printer pane. If its status contains Stopped, press the Start button.
Normal operation of the machine should be restored. The “stopped” status might be activated when some
problems in printing occur.
• Check if your application has special print options 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 the
command line parameter in the command item.

It is a known problem that occurs when a color machine is used on version 8.51 or earlier of Ghostscript, 64-bit
Linux OS, and has been reported to bugs.ghostscript.com as Ghostscript Bug 688252.The problem is solved in
AFPL Ghostscript v. 8.52 or above. Download the latest version of AFPL Ghostscript from http://sourceforge.net/

Avoid changing print job parameters (e.q., via LPR GUI) 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 the port while printing, the abrupt termination of the driver keeps the port locked
and unavailable for subsequent print jobs. If this situation occurs, try to release the port by selecting Release port
in the Port configuration window.

ADF
The following glossary helps you get familiar with the
product by understanding the terminologies commonly
used with printing as well as mentioned in this user’s guide.
An Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is a scanning unit that will
automatically feed an original sheet of paper so that the machine
can scan some amount of the paper at once.
802.11
AppleTalk
802.11 is a set of standards for wireless local area network (WLAN)
communication, developed by the IEEE LAN/MAN Standards
Committee (IEEE 802).
AppleTalk is a proprietary suite of protocols developed by Apple, Inc
for computer networking. It was included in the original Macintosh
(1984) and is now deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP
networking.
802.11b/g/n
802.11b/g/n can share same hardware and use the 2.4 GHz band.
802.11b supports bandwidth up to 11 Mbps, 802.11n supports
bandwidth up to 150 Mbps. 802.11b/g/n devices may occasionally
suffer interference from microwave ovens, cordless telephones, and
Bluetooth devices.

represent the color of a single pixel in a bitmapped image. Higher
color depth gives a broader range of distinct colors. As the number
of bits increases, the number of possible colors becomes
impractically large for a color map. 1-bit color is commonly called as
monochrome or black and white.
BMP
A bitmapped graphics format used internally by the Microsoft
Windows graphics subsystem (GDI), and used commonly as a simple

BOOTP
Coverage
Bootstrap Protocol. A network protocol used by a network client to
obtain its IP address automatically. This is usually done in the
bootstrap process of computers or operating systems running on
them. The BOOTP servers assign the IP address from a pool of
addresses to each client. BOOTP enables 'diskless workstation'
computers to obtain an IP address prior to loading any advanced
operating system.
It is the printing term used for a toner usage measurement on
printing. For example, 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 higher
and at the same time, a toner usage will be as much as the coverage.
CCD
