paper protecting the cartridge by pulling the packing tape.
SETTING UP YOUR PRINTER
2.4
3 Gently roll the cartridge 5 or 6 times to distribute the toner.
Thoroughly rolling the cartridge will assure maximum
copies per cartridge.
Note: If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth
and wash clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric.
Cautions:
• To prevent damage, do not expose the toner cartridge to light for
more than few minutes. Cover it with a piece of paper, if left
exposed for more than a few minutes.
• Do not touch the green underside of the toner cartridge. Use the
handle on the cartridge to avoid touching this area.
4 Locate the cartridge slots inside the printer, one on each
side.
2.5 SETTING UP YOUR PRINTER
5 Unfold the toner cartridge handle and grasp it. Insert the
cartridge in the printer until it snaps into place.
2
Note: Carefully insert or pull out the toner cartridge not to scratch
against the printer.
6 Close the front cover. Make sure that the cover is securely
closed. If the cover is not firmly closed, printing errors may
occur when you print.
Note: When printing text at 5% coverage, you can expect a toner
cartridge life of approximately 2,000 pages (1,000 pages for the
toner cartridge that is shipped with the printer).
SETTING UP YOUR PRINTER
2.6
Loading Paper
You can load approximately 150 sheets of paper in the tray.
1 Grasp the paper input tray and pull it toward you to open.
Pinch the rear guide and pull it out to extend the tray.
Note: Because the printer is very light, it may be moved when you
use it; for example, when opening/closing the tray or installing/
removing the toner cartridge. Be careful not to move the printer.
2 Prepare a stack of paper for loading by flexing or fanning
them back and forth. Straighten the edges on a level
surface.
2.7 SETTING UP YOUR PRINTER

Using Print Materials
This chapter will help you understand types of paper you
can use with this printer and how to properly load paper in
the tray for the best print quality.
This chapter includes:
• Choosing Paper and Other Materials
• Verifying the Output Location
• Loading Paper
• Printing on Special Materials
• Canceling a Print Job
Choosing Paper and Other Materials
You can print on a variety of print materials, such as plain paper,
envelopes, labels, transparencies and so on. See “Paper
Specifications” on page 6.3. To get the best possible print
quality, use only high-quality copier-grade paper.
When you choose print materials, consider the followings:
• Desired outcome: The paper you choose should be
appropriate for the project.
• Size: You can use any size paper that fits easily within the
paper adjusters of the paper feeder.
• Weight: Your printer supports paper weight as follows:
• 16~24 lbs (60~90 g/m2) bond for the tray
• 16~43 lbs (60~163 g/m2) bond for the manual feed
• Brightness: Some papers are whiter than others and produce
sharper, more vibrant images.
• Surface smoothness: The smoothness of the paper affects
how crisp the printing looks on the paper.
Caution: Using a material that does not conform to the
specification listed in the paper specification can cause problems
that may require service. This service is not covered by the
warranty or service agreements.

a. Maximum capacity may be reduced depending on the paper thickness.
b. If you load more than one sheet, paper jams will occur. You must load only
one sheet at a time in the tray.
Guidelines for Paper and Special Materials
When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other special
material, keep these guidelines in mind:
• Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper
can cause paper jams and the poor print quality.
• Use only high quality copier grade paper for the best print
quality.
• Avoid paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or a
texture that is too smooth or too rough. Paper jams may
occur.
• Store paper in its ream wrapper until you are ready to use.
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 materials at temperatures between 15 oC and
30 oC (59 oF to 86 oF). The relative humidity should be
between 10 % and 70 %.
• During storage, you should use moisture-proof wrap, such as
any plastic container or bag, to prevent dust and moisture
from contaminating your paper.
• Load special paper types one sheet at a time.
• Only use materials specifically recommended for use in laser
printers.
• To prevent special materials, such as transparencies and label
sheets from sticking together, remove them as they prints
out.
USING PRINT MATERIALS
3.3

• For envelopes:
- Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp, well
creased folds.
- Do not use envelopes with clasps and snaps.
- Do not use envelopes with windows, coated lining, selfadhesive seals, or other synthetic materials.
- Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes.
- Only use envelopes recommended for laser printers. Before
loading envelopes in the tray, make sure that they are
undamaged and are not stuck together.
- Do not feed stamped envelopes.
• For transparencies:
- Place them on a flat surface after removing them from the
printer.
- 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 and
coated paper carefully.
- To avoid fading, do not expose the printed transparencies to
prolonged sunlight.
- Only use transparencies recommended for use in laser
printers.
- Ensure that transparencies are not wrinkled, curled, or have
any torn edges.
• For labels:
- Verify that their adhesive material can tolerate fusing
temperature of 180 oC (356o F) for 0.1 second.
- Make sure that there is no exposed adhesive material
between them. 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 load a sheet of them through the printer more than
once. The adhesive backing is designed for one pass
through the machine.
- Do not use labels that are separating from the backing
sheet or are wrinkled, bubbled, or otherwise damaged.
- Only use labels recommended for laser printers.
3.4 USING PRINT MATERIALS
• For Card Stock or Custom-sized materials:
- Postcards, 3.5 by 5.83 in.(index) cards and other customsized materials can be printed with this printer. The
minimum size is 76 by 127mm(3.0 by 5.0 in.) and the
maximum size is 216 by 356mm(8.5 by 14 in.)
- Always insert the short-edge into the Manual Feed first. If
you want to print in landscape mode, make this selection
through your software. Inserting paper long-edge first may
cause a paper jam.
- Do not print on media smaller than 76mm (3.0 in.) wide or
127mm(5.0 in.) long.
• For preprinted paper:
- Letterheads must be printed with heat-resistant ink that will
not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous emissions when
subjected to the printer’s fusing temperature of 205 °C
(400 °F) for 0.1 second.
- Ink on letterheads must be non-flammable and should not
adversely affect any printer rollers.
- Forms and letterheads should be sealed in a moisture-proof
wrapping to prevent changes during storage.
- Before you load preprinted paper as forms and letterheads,
verify that the ink on the paper is dry. During the fusing
process, wet ink can come off preprinted paper.
• Do not use Carbonless paper and Tracing paper. Use of
these types of paper could result in chemical smells and could
damage your printer.

Verifying the Output Location
The printer has the paper output tray that collects paper facedown, in correct order.
Notes:
• If you continuously print many pages, the surface of the output
tray may become hot. Be careful not to touch the surface, and
especially keep children away from the surface.
• The front output tray can hold up to 50 sheets of paper. Remove
the pages so that the tray is not overloaded.
Loading Paper
Proper paper loading helps prevent paper jams and ensure
trouble-free printing. Do not remove the paper in the tray while
a job is printing. Doing so may cause a paper jam. See “Type,
Input Sources and Capacities” on page 3.3 for acceptable paper
size and capacity for the tray.
Using the Tray
The tray holds 150 sheets of paper. See “Type, Input Sources
and Capacities” on page 3.3 for acceptable paper size and
capacity of the tray.
Load a stack of paper into the tray and print. For details about
loading paper in the tray, see “Loading Paper” on page 2.7.
3.6 USING PRINT MATERIALS
Using Manual Feed Mode
If you select Manual Feed in the Source option, you can
manually load paper in the tray. Manually loading paper can be
helpful when you want to check the print quality after each page
is printed.
If you experience a paper jam from the tray, load one sheet of
paper at a time into the tray.
1 Load the print material in the tray with the print side up.
Adjust the paper guide against the print material without
bending the paper.

Maintaining Your Printer
This chapter provides suggestions for maintaining the toner
cartridge and the printer.
This chapter includes:
• Maintaining the Toner Cartridge
• Using the Toner Save Mode
• Cleaning the Printer
• Consumables and Replacement Parts
Maintaining the Toner Cartridge
Toner cartridge storage
To get the maximum results from the toner cartridge, keep the
following guidelines in mind.
• Do not remove the toner cartridge from its package until
ready for use.
• Do not refill the toner cartridge. The printer warranty does
not cover damage caused by using a refilled cartridge.
• Store toner cartridges in the same environment as the
printer.
• To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it to
light for more than few minute.
Toner cartridge life expectancy
The life of the toner cartridge depends on the amount of toner
that print jobs require. When printing text at 5% coverage, a
new toner cartridge lasts an average of 2,000 pages. (The
original toner cartridge supplied with the printer lasts an
average of 1,000 pages.)
Saving toner
To save toner, press the Cancel button on the printer control
panel. The Toner Save LED will be lit. You can also enable the
Toner Save mode in the printer properties. For details, see
Software User’s Guide. Selecting this option will extend the
life of the toner cartridge and reduce your cost per page, but will
reduce the print quality.
MAINTAINING YOUR PRINTER
4.2

Redistributing Toner
When toner is low, faded or light areas may appear on a printed
page. You may be able to temporarily improve the print quality
by redistributing the toner. The following procedures may allow
you to finish the current print job before replacing the toner
cartridge.
1 Open the front door.
2 Pull the toner cartridge out and remove it from the printer.
Cautions:
• Avoid reaching too far into the printer. The fusing area may be
hot.
• To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it to
light for more than few minutes.
4.3 MAINTAINING YOUR PRINTER
3 Gently shake the toner cartridge from side to side five or six
times to redistribute the toner.
Note: If the toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry
cloth and wash clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into
fabric.
4 Reinsert the toner cartridge into the printer. Ensure that the
toner cartridge snaps into place.
4
5 Close the front cover. Make sure that the cover is securely
closed. If it is not firmly closed, printing errors may occur
when you print.
MAINTAINING YOUR PRINTER
4.4
Replacing the Toner Cartridge
If the print remains light after redistributing toner (see
page 4.3), replace the toner cartridge.
Remove the old cartridge and install a new toner cartridge. See
“Installing the Toner Cartridge” on page 2.4.
Using the Toner Save Mode
The Toner Save mode allows the printer to use less toner on
each page. Selecting this option will extend the life of your toner
cartridge and reduce your cost per page, but will reduce print
quality.
There are two ways to enable the Toner Save mode:
From the Control Panel
Press the Cancel button on the control panel. The printer must
be in Ready mode (On Line/Error green LED is on).
• If the Toner Save LED is on, the mode is enabled and the
printer uses less toner to print a page.
• If the Toner Save LED is off, the mode is disabled and the
printer prints in the normal mode.
From the Printer Properties
You can also enable the Toner Save mode in the Graphic tab of
the printer properties. For details, see Software User’s Guide.
4.5 MAINTAINING YOUR PRINTER
Cleaning the Printer
To maintain the print quality, follow the cleaning procedures
below each time the toner cartridge is replaced or if print quality
problems occur.
Note: While cleaning the inside of the printer, be careful not to
touch the transfer roller (located underneath the toner cartridge).
Oil from your fingers can cause print quality problems.
Caution: Cleaning the cabinet of the printer with surfactants
containing large amounts of alcohol, solvent or other strong
substances can discolor or crack the cabinet.
Cleaning the Outside
Wipe the outside surface of the printer with a soft, clean, lintfree cloth. You can dampen the cloth slightly with water, but be
careful not to let any water drip onto the printer or inside of it.
Cleaning the Inside
During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles can
accumulate inside the printer. This buildup can cause print
quality problems, such as toner specs or smearing. Cleaning the
inside of the printer will eliminate or reduce these problems.

Clearing Paper Jams
Occasionally, paper can be jammed during a print job. Some of
causes include:
• The tray is overfilled.
• The front cover has been opened during a print job.
• Paper that does not meet paper specifications has been used.
See “Paper Specifications” on page 6.3.
• Paper that is outside of the supported size range has been
used. See “Paper Specifications” on page 6.3.
If a paper jam occurs, the On Line/Error LED on the control
panel lights red. Find and remove the jammed paper. If it is
invisible, look inside the printer.
In the Paper Exit Area
Note: Paper jams in this area may result in loose toner on the
page. If you get any toner on your clothes, wash them in cold
water as hot water will set the toner into the fabric.
1 If the paper jams as it exits to the output tray and a long
portion of the paper is visible, pull the paper straight out.
When you pull the jammed paper, if there is resistance and
the paper does not move immediately, stop pulling.

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 “Paper Specifications” on page 6.3.
• The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing processes can
cause some areas to reject toner. Try a different kind or
brand of paper.
• The toner cartridge may be defective. See “Vertical
repetitive defects” on the next page.
• If these steps do not correct the problems, contact a
service representative.
SOLVING PROBLEMS 5.11
5
Problem
Vertical lines
Solution
If black vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The drum inside the toner cartridge has probably been
scratched. Install a new toner cartridge.
If white vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The surface of the LSU part inside the machine may be
dirty. Clean the LSU. See “Cleaning the Inside” on
page 4.6. Contact your service representative.
Gray background
If the amount of background shading becomes
unacceptable, the procedures below may fix the problem.
• Change to a lighter weight pages. See “Paper
Specifications” on page 6.3.
• Check the printer’s environment; very dry (low humidity)
or high humidity (higher than 80% RH) conditions can
increase the amount of background shading.
• Remove the old toner cartridge and install a new one. See
“Installing the Toner Cartridge” on page 2.4.
Toner smear
• Clean the inside of the printer. See “Cleaning the Inside”
on page 4.6.
• Check the paper type and quality. See “Paper
Specifications” on page 6.3.
• Remove the toner cartridge and install a new one. See
“Installing the Toner Cartridge” on page 2.4.
Vertical repetitive
defects
If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of the page
at even intervals:
• The toner cartridge may be damaged. Clean the inside of
the printer. See “Cleaning the Inside” on page 4.6. After
cleaning the inside of the printer, if you still have the
same problems, install a new toner cartridge. See
“Installing the Toner Cartridge” on page 2.4.
• Parts of the printer 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.
5.12 SOLVING PROBLEMS
Problem
Solution
Background
scatter
Background scatter results from bits of toner 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 the printer properties.
Misformed
characters
• If characters are improperly formed and producing hollow
images, the paper stock may be too slick. Try a different
paper. See “Paper Specifications” on page 6.3.
Page skew
• Check the paper type and quality. See “Paper
Specifications” on page 6.3.
• Ensure that the paper or other material is loaded correctly
and the guides are not too tight or too loose against the
paper stack.
Curl or wave
• Check the paper type and quality. Both high temperature
and humidity can cause paper curl. See “Paper
Specifications” on page 6.3.
• Turn over the stack of paper in the input tray. Also try
rotating the paper 180° in the input tray.
SOLVING PROBLEMS 5.13

• Turn over the stack of paper in the input tray. Also try
rotating the paper 180° in the feeder.
Back of printouts
are dirty
• The transfer roller may be dirty. See “Cleaning the Inside”
on page 4.6.
• Check for leaking toner. Clean the inside of the printer.
Black pages
• The toner cartridge may not be installed properly. Remove
the cartridge and reinsert.
• The toner cartridge may be defective and need replacing.
Install a new toner cartridge.
• The printer may require repair. Contact a service
representative.
Loose toner
• Clean the inside of the printer.
• Check the paper type and quality. See “Paper
Specifications” on page 6.3.
• Install a new toner cartridge.
• If the problem persists, the printer may require repair.
Contact a service representative.
Character Voids
5.14 SOLVING PROBLEMS
Character voids are white areas within the parts of
characters that should be solid black:
• If you are using transparencies, try another type of
transparency. Because of the composition of the
transparency, some character voids are normal.
• You may be printing on the wrong surface on the paper.
Remove the paper and turn it around.
• The paper may not meet paper specifications. See “Paper
Specifications” on page 6.3.
Problem
Solution
Horizontal stripes
If horizontally aligned black streaks or smears appear:
• The toner cartridge may be installed improperly. Remove
the cartridge and reinsert.
• The toner cartridge may be defective. Install a new toner
cartridge. See “Installing the Toner Cartridge” on
page 2.4.
• If the problem persists, the printer may require repair.
Contact a service representative.
Curl
If the printed paper is curl or paper does not feed into the
printer:
• Turn over the stack of paper in the input tray. Also try
rotating the paper 180° in the input tray.
Poor Image quality
The printer does not have enough memory to print a job.
Even if you select 600 dpi resolution, the printer
automatically select 300 dpi. Simplify the page layout and
remove unnecessary graphics from your job.

SOLVING PROBLEMS 5.17
Common Linux Problems
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
I can’t change settings in
the configuration tool.
You need to have administrator privileges to be able to
affect global settings.
I am using the KDE
desktop but the
configuration tool and
LLPR won’t start.
Maybe you do not have the GTK libraries installed. These
usually come with most Linux distributions, but you may
have to install them manually. Refer to your distribution’s
installation manual for more details about installing
additional packages.
I just installed this
package but can’t find
entries in the KDE/
Gnome menus.
Some versions of the KDE or GNOME desktop
environments may require that you restart your session
for the changes to take effect.
I get a “Some options are
not selected” error
message while editing the
printer settings.
Some printers have conflicting settings, meaning that
some settings for two options can’t be selected at the
same time. When you change a setting and the Printer
Package detects such a conflict, the conflicting option is
changed to a “No Choice” value, and you have to choose
an option that does not conflict before being able to submit
the changes.
I can’t make a printer the
system default.
• In some conditions, it may not be possible to change the
default queue. This happens with some variants of
LPRng, especially on recent RedHat systems that use the
‘printconf’ database of queues.
• When using printconf, the /etc/printcap file is
automatically refreshed from the database of printers
managed by the system (usually through the ‘printtool’
command), and the queues in /etc/printcap.local are
appended to the resulting file. since the default queue in
LPRng is defined as the first queue in /etc/printcap,
therefore it is not possible for the Samsung Printer
Package to change the default when some queues have
otherwise been defined using printtool.
• LPD systems identify the default queue as the one
named ‘lp’. Thus if there is already a queue by this
name, and if it doesn’t have any alias, then you won’t be
able to change the default. To work around this, you can
either delete the queue, or rename it by manually editing
the /etc/printcap file.
5.18 SOLVING PROBLEMS
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
The N-up setting does not
work correctly for some
of my documents.
The N-up feature is achieved through post-processing of
the PostScript data that is being sent to the printing
system. However, such post-processing can only be
adequately achieved if the PostScript data conforms to the
Adobe Document Structing Conventions. Problems may
arise when using N-up and other features relying on postprocessing if the document being printed isn’t compliant.
I am using BSD lpr
(Slackware, Debian, older
distributions) and some
options chosen in LLPR
don’t seem to take effect.
Legacy BSD lpr systems have a hard limitation on the
length of the option string that can be passed to the
printing system. As such, if you selected a number of
different options, the length of the options may be
exceeded and some of your choices won’t be passed to the
programs responsible for implementing them. Try to select
less options that deviate from the defaults, to save on
memory usage.
I am trying to print a
document in Landscape
mode, but it prints
rotated and cropped.
Most Unix applications that offer a Landscape orientation
option in their printing options will generate correct
PostScript code that should be printed as is. In that case,
you need to make sure that you leave the LLPR option to
its default Portrait setting, to avoid unwanted rotations of
the page that would result in a cropped output.
Some pages come out all
white (nothing is
printed), and I am using
CUPS.
If the data being sent is in Encapsulated PostScript (EPS)
format, some earlier versions of CUPS (1.1.10 and before)
have a bug preventing them from being processed
correctly. When going through LLPR to print, the Printer
Package will work around this issue by converting the data
to regular PostScript. However, if your application
bypasses LLPR and feeds EPS data to CUPS, the document
may not print correctly.
I can’t print to a SMB
(Windows) printer.
To be able to configure and use SMB-shared printers (such
as printers shared on a Windows machine), you need to
have a correct installation of the SAMBA package that
enables that feature. The “smbclient” command should be
available and usable on your system.
My application seems to
be frozen while LLPR is
running.
Most Unix applications will expect a command like the
regular “lpr” command to be non-interactive and thus
return immediately. Since LLPR is waiting for user input
before passing the job on to the print spooler, very often
the application will wait for the process to return, and thus
will appear to be frozen (its windows won’t refresh). This is
normal and the application should resume functioning
correctly after the user exits LLPR.
SOLVING PROBLEMS 5.19
5
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
How do I specify the IP
address of my SMB
server?
It can be specified in the “Add Printer” dialog of the
configuration tool, if you don’t use the CUPS printing
system. Unfortunately, CUPS currently doesn’t allow to
specify the IP address of SMB printers, so you will have to
be able to browse the resource with Samba in order to be
able to print.
Some documents come
out as white pages when
printing.
Some versions of CUPS, especially those shipped with
Mandrake Linux before the 8.1 release, have some known
bugs when processing the PostScript output from some
applications. Try upgrading to the latest version of CUPS
(at least 1.1.14). Some RPM packages for most popular
distributions are provided as a convenience with this Linux
Printing Package.
I have CUPS and some
options (such as N-up)
seem to be always
enabled even though I
don’t pick them in LLPR.
There may be some local options defined in your ~/
.lpoptions file, which is manipulated by the lpoptions
command. These options will always be used if not
overridden by LLPR settings. To get rid of all options for a
printer, run the following command, replacing “printer”
with the name of the queue: lpoptions -x printer.
I configured a printer to
print to a file, but I get
“Permission denied”
errors.
Most printing systems will not run as the super-user but as
a special user (usually “lp”). Therefore, make sure that the
file you have chosen to print to is accessible to the user
owning the spooler daemon.
On my PCL (or SPL)
printer, I sometimes get
error messages printing
instead of my document.
Unfortunately, some Unix applications may generate noncompliant PostScript output that may not be supported by
Ghostscript, or even the printer itself in PostScript mode.
You can try to capture the output to a file and view the
results with Ghostscript (gv or ghostview will allow you to
do so interactively) and see if you get error messages.
However, since the application is at probably fault, contact
your software vendor to inform them of the issue.

Printer and Paper Storage Environment
Paper storage environmental conditions directly affect the feed
operation.
Ideally, the printer and paper storage environment should be at
or near room temperature, and not too dry or humid. Remember
that paper is hygroscopic; it absorbs and loses moisture rapidly.
Heat works with humidity to damage paper. Heat causes the
moisture in paper to evaporate, while cold causes it to condense
on the sheets. Heating systems and air conditioners remove
most of the humidity from a room. As paper is opened and used,
it loses moisture, causing streaks and smudging. Humid
weather or water coolers can cause the humidity to increase in
a room. As paper is opened and used it absorbs any excess
moisture, causing light print and dropouts. Also, as paper loses
and gains moisture it can become distorted. This can cause
paper jams.
Care should be taken not to purchase more paper than can be
used in a short time (about 3 months). Paper stored for long
periods may experience heat and moisture extremes, which can
cause damage. Planning is important to prevent damage to
large supplies of paper.
Unopened paper in sealed reams can remain stable for several
months before use. Opened packages of paper have more
potential for environment damage, especially if they are not
wrapped with a moisture-proof barrier.
The paper storage environment should be properly maintained
to ensure optimum printer performance. The required condition
is 20° to 24°C (68° to 75°F), with a relative humidity of 45% to
55%. The following guidelines should be considered when
evaluating the paper’s storage environment:
• Paper should be stored at or near room temperature.
• The air should not be too dry or too humid.
• The best way to store an opened ream of paper is to rewrap it
tightly in its moisture-proof wrapping. If the printer
environment is subject to extremes, unwrap only the amount
of paper to be used during the day’s operation to prevent
unwanted moisture changes.

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.
Creating a New Page Overlay
To use a page overlay, you must create a new page overlay
containing your logo or image.
