Important Precautions and Safety Information
17 The Power cord supplied with your machine should be used for safe operation. If
you are using a cord which is longer than 2 m with 110 V machine, then it should
be 16 AWG* or bigger.
When using this machine, these basic safety precautions should always be followed to
reduce risk of fire, electric shock, and injury to people:
18 SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
1
Read and understand all instructions.
2
Use common sense whenever operating electrical appliances.
3
Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the machine and in the literature
accompanying the machine.
4
If an operating instruction appears to conflict with safety information, heed the
safety information. You may have misunderstood the operating instruction. If you
cannot resolve the conflict, contact your sales or service representative for
assistance.
5
Unplug the machine from the AC wall socket before cleaning. Do not use liquid or
aerosol cleaners. Use only a damp cloth for cleaning.
Class I laser products are not considered to be hazardous. The laser system and printer
are designed so there is never any human access to laser radiation above a Class I level
during normal operation, user maintenance, or prescribed service condition.
6
Do not place the machine on an unstable cart, stand or table. It may fall, causing
serious damage.
WARNING
7
Your machine should never be placed on, near or over a radiator, heater, air
conditioner or ventilation duct.
8
Do not allow anything to rest on the power cable. Do not locate your machine
where the cords will be abused by persons walking on them.
9
Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords. This can diminish performance,
and may result in the risk of fire or electric shock.
Environmental and Safety Consideration
Laser Safety Statement
The printer is certified in the U.S. to conform to the requirements of DHHS 21 CFR,
chapter 1 Subchapter J for Class I(1) laser products, and elsewhere, is certified as a
Class I laser product conforming to the requirements of IEC 825.
Never operate or service the printer with the protective cover removed from Laser/
Scanner assembly. The reflected beam, although invisible, can damage your eyes.
When using this product, these basic safety precautions should always be followed to
reduce risk of fire, electric shock, and injury to persons:
10 Do not allow pets to chew on the AC power or PC interface cords.
11 Never push objects of any kind into the machine through case or cabinet
openings. They may touch dangerous voltage points, creating a risk of fire or
shock. Never spill liquid of any kind onto or into the machine.
12 To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble the machine. Take it to a
qualified service technician when repair work is required. Opening or removing
covers may expose you to dangerous voltages or other risks. Incorrect reassembly
could cause electric shock when the unit is subsequently used.
13 Unplug the machine from the PC and AC wall outlet, and refer servicing to
qualified service personnel under the following conditions:
• When any part of the power cord, plug, or connecting cable is damaged or
frayed.
• If liquid has been spilled into the machine.
• If the machine has been exposed to rain or water.
• If the machine does not operate properly after instructions have been followed.
• If the machine has been dropped, or the cabinet appears damaged.
• If the machine exhibits a sudden and distinct change in performance.
Ozone Safety
14 Adjust only those controls covered by the operating instructions. Improper
adjustment of other controls may result in damage, and may require extensive
work by a qualified service technician to restore the machine to normal operation.
During normal operation, this machine produces ozone. The ozone
produced does not present a hazard to the operator. However, it is
advisable that the machine be operated in a well ventilated area.
15 Avoid using this machine during a lightning storm. There may be a remote risk of
electric shock from lightning. If possible, unplug the AC power for the duration of
the lightning storm.
If you need additional information about ozone, please contact your
nearest Samsung dealer.
16 If you continuously print multiple pages, the surface of the output tray may become
hot. Be careful not to touch the surface, and keep children away from the surface.

printer is operating correctly.
This chapter includes:
•
Printing a demo page
•
Using toner save mode
Press and hold the Cancel button for about 2 seconds.
A demo page prints out.
Using toner save mode
Toner save mode allows the printer to use less toner on each page.
Activating this mode extends the life of your toner cartridge and reduces
your cost per page beyond what one would experience in the normal
mode, but it reduces print quality. This setting is not available with the
1200dpi (Best) setting.
You can set the toner save mode from the printer properties window on
your printer driver. See the Software Section.

5 Loading print media
Selecting print media
This chapter includes:
You can print on a variety of print media, such as plain paper, envelopes,
labels, and transparencies. Always use print media that meet the
guidelines for use with your printer. Print media that does not meet the
guidelines outlined in this user’s guide may cause the following
problems:
•
Selecting print media
• Poor print quality
•
Loading paper
• Increased paper jams
•
Knowing an output location
• Premature wear on the printer
This chapter will help you understand the types of paper you can use
with your printer and how to properly load paper in the different paper
trays for the best print quality.
Properties, such as weight, composition, grain, and moisture content,
are important factors that affect the printer’s performance and the output
quality. When you choose print media, consider the following:
• Desired outcome: The print media you choose should be appropriate
for your project.
• Size: You can use any size print media that fits easily within the paper
adjusters of the paper tray.
• Weight: Your printer supports print media weights as follows:
- 16 to 43 lb (60 to 163 g/m2) for the standard tray and manual tray
- 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 g/m2) for the manual duplex printing
• 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.
Notes
• 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 selecting and storing print media
Guidelines for special print media
When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other print media, keep
these guidelines in mind:
Type
• Always use print media that conform with the specifications listed on
the next column.
Envelopes
• 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 printers.
• Avoid using the following print 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 printer.
• 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 15o C and 30o C
(59o F to 86o F). 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 print media types one sheet at a time through the
manual tray to avoid paper jams.
Guidelines
• Successful printing on envelopes depends
upon the quality of the envelopes. When
selecting envelopes, consider the following
factors:
- Weight: The weight of the envelope paper
should not exceed 90 g/m2 (24 lb) or jamming
may occur.
- Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes
should lie flat with less than 6 mm
(0.25 inches) curl, and should not contain air.
- Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled,
nicked, or otherwise damaged.
- Temperature: You should use envelopes that
are compatible with the heat and pressure of
the printer during operation.
• Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp
and well creased 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.
• Be sure the seam at both ends of the envelope
extends all the way to the corner of the
envelope.
Acceptable
• To prevent print media, such as transparencies and label sheets, from
sticking together, remove them as they print out.
Unacceptable
CAUTION: If you print 20 envelopes in succession, the surface
of the top cover may become hot. Please exercise caution.
• Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with
more than one flap that folds over to seal must
use adhesives compatible with the printer’s
fusing temperature of 180° C (356° F) for
0.1 second. 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 (0.6 inches) from the edges
of the envelope.
• Avoid printing over the area where the
envelope’s seams meet.

<Loading print media>
Type
Guidelines
Transparencies
• To avoid damaging the printer, use only
transparencies designed for use in laser
printers.
• Transparencies used in the printer must be able
to withstand 180° C (356° F), the printer’s
fusing temperature.
• 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 carefully.
• To avoid fading, do not expose printed
transparencies to prolonged sunlight.
• Ensure that transparencies are not wrinkled,
curled, or have any torn edges.
Labels
• To avoid damaging the printer, use only labels
designed for use in laser printers.
• When selecting labels, consider the following
factors:
- Adhesives: The adhesive material should be
stable at 180° C (356° F), the printer’s fusing
temperature.
- 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 (5 inches) 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 printer components.
• Do not run a sheet of labels through the printer
more than once. The adhesive backing is
designed for only a single pass through the
printer.
• Do not use labels that are separating from the
backing sheet or are wrinkled, bubbled, or
otherwise damaged.
Card stock or
custom-sized
materials
Type
Preprinted
paper
• 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 of 180° C (356° F)
for 0.1 second.
• 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.
Loading paper
Load the print media you use for the majority of your print jobs in the tray.
The tray can hold a maximum of 250 sheets of 75 g/m2 (20 lb) plain
paper.
Using the standard tray
To load paper, open the tray and load paper with the side to be printed
on facing up.
You can load letterhead paper with the design side face up. The top edge
of the sheet with the logo should be entered into the printer first.
Notes
• If you experience problems with paper feed, place one sheet at
a time in the manual tray.
• You can load previously printed paper. The printed side should
be facing down with an uncurled edge enter the printer first. If
you experience problems with paper feed, turn the paper
around. Note that the print quality is not guaranteed.
• Do not print on print media smaller than 76 mm
(3 inches) wide or 127 mm (5 inches) long.
• In the software application, set margins at least
6.4 mm (0.25 inches) away from the edges of
the material.

Caution
Maintaining the toner cartridge
• Avoid reaching too far into the printer. The fuser area may be
hot.
• To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it to
light for more than a few minutes. Cover it with a piece of
paper, if necessary.
• Do not touch the green surface underside of the toner
cartridge. Use the handle on the cartridge to avoid touching
this area.
Toner cartridge storage
To get the most 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.
3
• Store toner cartridge in the same environment as the printer.
Thoroughly shake the cartridge 5 or 6 times to distribute the toner
evenly inside the cartridge.
• To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it to light for
more than a few minutes.
Expected cartridge life
The life of the toner cartridge depends on the amount of toner that print
jobs require. When printing text at ISO 19752 5% coverage, a new toner
cartridge lasts an average of 3,000 pages. (The original toner cartridge
supplied with the printer lasts an average of 1,000 pages.) The actual
number may also be different depending on the print density of the
pages you print on, and the number of pages may be affected by
operating environment, printing interval, print media type, and print
media size. If you print a lot of graphics, you may need to change the
cartridge more often.
Caution
• 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.
4
Redistributing toner cartridge
Hold the toner cartridge by the handle and slowly insert the
cartridge into the opening in the printer.
Tabs on the sides of the cartridge and corresponding grooves
within the printer will guide the cartridge into the correct position
until it locks into place completely.
When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life span:
• White streaks and light printing occur.
• The Smart Panel program window appears on the computer.
• The Error LED blinks red.
If this happens, you can temporarily reestablish print quality by
redistributing the remaining toner in the cartridge. In some cases, white
streaks or light printing will still occur even after you have redistributed
the toner.

Clearing paper jams
Note
This chapter provides helpful information for what to do if you encounter
an error while using your printer.
• When removing paper that is jammed in the printer, if possible
always pull the paper in the direction that it normally moves so
as not to damage internal components. Always pull firmly and
evenly; do not jerk the paper. If the paper tears, ensure that all
fragments of paper are removed; otherwise a jam will occur
again.

Tips for avoiding paper jams
By selecting the correct print media types, most paper jams can be
avoided. When a paper jam occurs, follow the steps outlined on page
9.1.
• Follow the procedures on page 5.4. Ensure that the adjustable guides
are positioned correctly.
• Do not overload the tray.
• Do not remove paper from the tray while your printer is printing.
• Flex, fan, and straighten paper before loading.
• Do not use creased, damp, or highly curled paper.
• Do not mix paper types in the tray.
• Use only recommended print media. See page 5.1.
Caution
• Ensure that the recommended print side of print media is facing up in
the tray.
• When removing the jammed paper, be careful not to touch the
heat roller (located underneath the inner cover). It is hot and
could cause burns!
• The top and inner cover themselves may also be hot due to
the heat roller. Allows the printer to cool before opening the
covers.

Toner spots
Dropouts
Suggested solutions
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. See
page 8.3. If this does not improve print quality,
install a new toner cartridge.
• The paper may not meet paper specifications
(for example, the paper is too moist or too
rough). See page 5.3.
• If the entire page is light, the print resolution
setting is too light or toner save mode is on.
Adjust the print resolution and toner save
mode in the printer properties. See the
Software Section.
• A combination of faded or smeared defects
may indicate that the printer needs cleaning.
See page 8.1.
• The surface of LSU may be dirty. Clean the
LSU. See page 8.2.
If black vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The drum inside the toner cartridge has
probably been scratched. Install a new toner
cartridge. See page 8.4.
If white vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The surface of the LSU part inside the printer
may be dirty. Clean the LSU. See page 8.2.
Gray
background
If the amount of background shading becomes
unacceptable, the procedures below may fix the
problem.
• Change to lighter weight pages. See page 5.3.
• Check the printer’s environment; low humidity
(lower than 20% RH) 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 page 8.4.
• The paper may not meet specifications (for
example, the paper is too moist or too rough).
See page 5.3.
• The transfer roller or paper path may be dirty.
See page 8.1.
Toner smear
• Clean the inside of the printer. See page 8.1.
• Check the paper type and quality. See page
5.2.
• Remove the toner cartridge and install a new
one. See page 8.4.
Vertical
repetitive
defects
If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of
the page at even intervals:
• The toner cartridge may be damaged. If a
repetitive mark occurs on the page, install a
new toner cartridge. See page 8.4.
• 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.
If generally rounded, faded areas 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 page 5.3.
• 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
column.
• If these steps do not correct the problems,
contact a service representative.

the adjustable guides are not too tight or too
loose against the paper stack.
• 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
• Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
• Check the paper type and quality. Both high
temperature and humidity can cause paper
curl. See page 5.2.
• Turn over the stack of paper in the tray. Also
try rotating the paper 180° in the tray.
• Clean the inside of the printer.
• Check the paper type and quality. See page
5.2.
• Install a new toner cartridge. See page 8.4.
• If the problem persists, the printer may require
repair. Contact a service representative.
Character voids
Character voids are white areas within
characters that should be solid black:
• 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
via the printer properties window.
Misformed
characters
Page skew
Curl or wave
Suggested solutions
• If characters are improperly formed and
producing hollowed images, the paper stock
may be too slick. Try a different paper. See
page 5.3.
• If you are using transparencies, try another
type of transparency. Because of the
composition of the transparency, some
character voids may be normal.
• You may be printing on the wrong surface on
the paper. Turn over the paper in the tray.
• The paper may not meet paper specifications.

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 mfp 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 mfp port.

Darkness
Use this option to lighten or darken your print job. Some
printers do not support this feature.
• Normal: This setting is for normal documents.
• Light: This setting is for bolder line widths or darker gray-scale
images.
• Dark: This setting is for finer line width, higher definition in
graphics, and lighter gray-scale images.
Use the following Graphic options to adjust the print quality for
your specific printing needs. See “Printing a Document” on
page 12 for more information on accessing printer properties.
Click the Graphic tab to display the properties shown below..
Toner Save Mode
Selecting this option extends the life of your toner cartridge and
reduces your cost per page without a significant reduction in print
quality. Some printers do not support this feature.
• Printer Setting: If you select this option, this feature is
determined by the setting you’ve made on the control panel of
the printer.
• On: Select this option to allow the printer to use less toner on
each page.
• Off: If you don’t need to save toner when printing a document,
select this option.
Advanced Options
You can set advanced settings by clicking the Advanced
Options button.
• TrueType Options: This option determines what the driver
tells the printer about how to image the text in your document.
Select the appropriate setting according to the status of your
document. This option may be available only in
Windows 9x/Me, depending on your particular printer
model.
- Download as Outline: When this option is selected, the
driver will download any TrueType fonts that are used in your
document not already stored (resident) on your printer. If,
after printing a document, you find that the fonts did not print
correctly, choose Download as bit image and resubmit your
print job. The Download as bit image setting is often useful
when printing Adobe. This feature is available only
when you use the PCL printer driver.
- Download as Bitmap: When this option is selected, the
driver will download the font data as bitmap images.
Documents with complicated fonts, such as Korean or
Chinese, or various other fonts, will print faster in this setting.
- Print as Graphics: When this option is selected, the driver
will download any fonts as graphics. When printing documents
with high graphic content and relatively few TrueType fonts,
printing performance (speed) may be enhanced in this
setting.
• Print All Text To Black: When the Print All Text To Black
option is checked, all text in your document prints solid black,
regardless of the color it appears on the screen.
• Print All Text To Darken: When the Print All Text To Darken
option is checked, all text in your document is allowed to print
darker than on a normal document. Some printers do not
support this feature.
Resolution
The Resolution options you can select may vary
depending on your printer model. The higher the setting,
the sharper the clarity of printed characters and graphics. The
higher setting also may increase the time it takes to print a
document.
Image Mode
The available options are Normal and Text Enhance. Some
printers do not support this feature.
• Printer Setting: If you select this option, this feature is
determined by the setting you’ve made on the control panel of
the printer.
• Normal: This setting is for normal documents.
• Text Enhance: Image Mode allows the user to enhance

• Print Subset: You can set the sequence in which the pages
print. Select the print order from the drop-down list.
- Normal(1,2,3): Your printer prints all pages from the first
page to the last page.
- Reverse All Pages(3,2,1): Your printer prints all pages from
the last page to the first page.
- Print Odd Pages: Your printer prints only the odd numbered
pages of the document.
- Print Even Pages: Your printer prints only the even
numbered pages of the document.
• Use Printer Fonts: When Use Printer Fonts is checked, the
printer uses the fonts that are stored in its memory (resident
fonts) to print your document, rather than downloading the
fonts used in your document. Because downloading fonts takes
time, selecting this option can speed up your printing time.
When using Printer fonts, the printer will try to match the fonts
used in your document to those stored in its memory. If,
however, you use fonts in your document that are very different
from those resident in the printer, your printed output will
appear very different from what it looks like on the screen.
This feature is available only when you use the PCL
printer driver.

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.
