Regulatory Compliance Statements

Wireless Guidance

Low power, Radio LAN type devices (radio frequency (RF) wireless communication devices), operating in the 2.4 GHz Band, may be present (embedded) in your printer system. The following section is a general overview of considerations while operating a wireless device.

Additional limitations, cautions, and concerns for specific countries are listed in the specific country sections (or country group sections). The wireless devices in your system are only qualified for use in the countries identified by the Radio Approval

Marks on the system rating label. If the country you will be using the wireless device in, is not listed, please contact your local Radio Approval agency for requirements.

Wireless devices are closely regulated and use may not be allowed.

The power output of the wireless device or devices that may be embedded in your printer is well below the RF exposure limits as known at this time. Because the wireless devices (which may be embedded into your printer) emit less energy than is allowed in radio frequency safety standards and recommendations, manufacturer believes these devices are safe for use. Regardless of the power levels, care should be taken to minimize human contact during normal operation.

As a general guideline, a separation of 20 cm (8 inches) between the wireless device and the body, for use of a wireless device near the body (this does not include

11

extremities) is typical. This device should be used more than 20 cm (8 inches) from the body when wireless devices are on and transmitting.

This transmitter must not be collocated or operation in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.

Some circumstances require restrictions on wireless devices. Examples of common restrictions are listed below:

Radio frequency wireless communication can interfere with equipment on commercial aircraft. Current aviation regulations require wireless devices to be turned off while traveling in an airplane. 802.11B (also known as wireless Ethernet) and Bluetooth communication devices are examples of devices that provide wireless communication.

In environments where the risk of interference to other devices or services is harmful or perceived as harmful, the option to use a wireless device may be restricted or eliminated. Airports, Hospitals, and Oxygen or flammable gas laden atmospheres are limited examples where use of wireless devices may be restricted or eliminated. When in environments where you are uncertain of the sanction to use wireless devices, ask the applicable authority for authorization prior to use or turning on the wireless device.

Every country has different restrictions on the use of wireless devices.

Since your system is equipped with a wireless device, when traveling between countries with your system, check with the local Radio Approval authorities prior to any move or trip for any restrictions on the use of a wireless device in the destination country.

If your system came equipped with an internal embedded wireless device, do not operate the wireless device unless all covers and shields are in place and the system is fully assembled.

Wireless devices are not user serviceable. Do not modify them in any way. Modification to a wireless device will void the authorization to use it. Please contact manufacturer for service.

Only use drivers approved for the country in which the device will be used. See the manufacturer System Restoration Kit, or contact manufacturer Technical Support for additional information.

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.

This chapter includes:

• Choosing Paper and Other Materials

• Loading Paper

• Printing on Special Print Materials

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 “Printing on

Special Print Materials” on page 3.14. To get the best possible

print quality, use only high-quality copier-grade paper.

When you choose print materials, consider the following:

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 tray.

Weight

: Your printer supports paper weighs as follows:

-16~24lbs (60~90g/m

2

) bond for Tray 1 or

optional Tray 2

-16~43lbs (60~163g/m

2

) bond for the

Multi-purpose Tray

-20~24lbs (75~90g/m

2

) bond for duplex printing

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.

C

AUTION

: Using a material that does not conform to the

specifications listed on page E.6 can cause problems that may

require service. This service is not covered by the warranty or service agreements.

Guidelines for Paper and Special Materials

When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other special materials, keep these guidelines in mind:

• Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper can cause paper jams and poor print quality.

• Use cut-sheet paper only. You cannot use multi-part paper.

• Use only high-quality, copier grade paper for the best print quality.

• Do not use paper with irregularities, such as tabs or staples.

• Do not attempt to load any tray while printing and never overfill the tray. This could cause a paper jam.

• Avoid paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or a texture that is too smooth or too rough.

• Colored paper should be of the same high quality as white photocopy paper. The pigments must withstand the printer’s fusing temperature of 180°C (356°F) for 0.1 seconds without deteriorating. Do not use paper with a colored coating that was added after the paper was produced.

• Preprinted forms must be printed with nonflammable, heatresistant ink that does not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous emissions when subject to the printer’s fusing temperature.

• Store paper 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 paper away from moisture, direct sunlight or other conditions that can cause it to wrinkle or curl.

3

N

OTE

: Do not use carbonless paper and tracing paper. They are unstable at the fusing temperature and can give of fumes, or cause damage to the printer.

Loading Paper

Proper paper loading helps prevent paper jams and ensure trouble-free printing. Do not remove the paper tray while a job

is printing. Doing so may cause a paper jam. See “Sizes and

Capacities” on page 3.2 for acceptable paper capacities for each

tray.

Using Tray 1

The tray, Tray 1, can hold a maximum of 250 sheets of plain A4 and letter-sized paper.

You can purchase an optional tray, Tray 2, and attach it below

Tray 1, to load an additional 500 sheets of paper.

Multi-purpose Tray

The Multi-purpose Tray can hold several sizes and types of material, such as transparencies, cards and envelopes. You may also want to use the Multi-purpose Tray for single page print jobs on letterhead, colored paper for use as separator sheets, or other special materials that you do not normally keep in the paper tray. You can load approximately 100 sheets of plain paper, 10 envelopes, 30 transparencies, 10 sheets of card stock or 10 labels at a time.

• Load only one size of print material at a time in the

Multi-purpose Tray.

• To prevent paper jams, do not add paper when there is still paper in the Multi-purpose Tray. This also applies to other types of print materials.

• Print materials should be loaded face down with the top edge going into the Multi-purpose Tray first and be placed in the center of the tray.

To load print material in the Multi-purpose Tray:

1

Lower the Multi-purpose Tray and unfold the paper support extension as shown.

Printing on Labels

• Only use labels recommended for laser printers.

• Verify that the labels’ adhesive material can tolerate a fusing temperature of 180°C (356°F) for 0.1 seconds.

• Make sure that there is no exposed adhesive material between the labels. Exposed areas can cause labels to peel off during printing, which can cause paper jams. Exposed adhesive can also cause damage to the printer components.

• Never print on the same sheet of labels more than once or print on a partial sheet of labels.

• Do not use labels that are separating from the backing sheet or are wrinkled or damaged in any way.

• To prevent labels from sticking together, do not let the printed label sheets stack up as they are printed out.

To print on labels:

1

Open the Multi-purpose Tray and unfold the paper support.

Printing on Transparencies

• When you print a color document do not use transparencies with an attached backing sheet. This may cause print quality problems.

• Only use transparencies recommended for use in laser printers.

• Ensure that transparencies do not have torn edges and are not wrinkled or curled.

• Hold the transparencies by the edges and avoid touching the print side. Oils from your fingers can cause print quality problems.

• Be careful not to leave fingerprints on or scratch the print side.

• You should use the following paper type:

Printing on Preprinted Paper

• Preprinted paper is paper that has some type of printing placed on it before it is sent through the printer (paper that has a preprinted logo at the top of the page, for example).

• 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 seconds.

• Ink on letterhead must be non-flammable and should not adversely affect any printer rollers.

• Forms and letterhead should be sealed in 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 of preprinted paper, reducing the print quality.

To print on preprinted paper:

1

Open the Multi-purpose Tray and unfold the paper support.

2

Load letterhead only in the Multi-purpose Tray

with the print side down and the top

Printing on Card Stock or Custom-sized

Materials

• Postcards, 3.5in. by 5.5in. (index) cards and other customsized materials can be printed with your printer. The minimum size is 90mm by 140mm (3.5in. by 5.5in.) and the maximum size is 216mm by 356mm (8.5in. by 14in.).

• Always insert the short edge into the Multi-purpose Tray first.

If you want to print in landscape mode, make this selection using your software. Inserting paper long edge first may cause a paper jam.

• Do not load more than 10 cards into the Multi-purpose Tray at a time.

• Do not print on material smaller than 90mm (3.5in.) wide or

140mm (5.5in.) long.

• Set margins at least 4.3mm away from the edges of the material in the software application.

Using Overlays

What is an Overlay?

An overlay is text and/or images stored on 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 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.

1

Create or open a document containing text or an image for use in a new page overlay. Position the items exactly as you wish them to appear when printed as an overlay. If needed, save the file for later use.

2

When you change the print settings from your software

Managing the Toner Cartridges

Toner Cartridge Storage

To get the maximum results from the toner cartridge, keep the following guidelines in mind:

• Do not remove the toner cartridges from their packages until you are ready to use them.

• Do not refill the toner cartridges.

The printer warranty does not cover damage caused by using a refilled cartridge.

• Store the toner cartridges in the same environment as the printer.

• To prevent damage to the toner cartridges, do not expose them to light for more than a few minutes.

Toner Cartridge Life Expectancy

The life of the toner cartridge depends on the amount of toner that your print jobs require. When printing text at 5% coverage, a new toner cartridge lasts an average of 7,000 pages for black and 5,000 pages for each color. The initial toner cartridge supplied with the printer lasts an average of 2,000 pages for black and 1,500 pages for each color.

At any time, you can verify the life expectancy by checking the toner level. See the below.

Checking the Remaining Toner

You can check the level of toner left in each cartridge.

In ready mode press the

Menu

button ( ) on the control panel until you see ‘Setup’ on the bottom line of the display.

Redistributing the Toner

When a toner cartridge is nearly empty, faded or light areas may appear. Equally it is possible that colored images may have incorrect colors due to incorrect mixing of the toner colors when one of the colored toner cartridge is nearly empty. 'Ready

[Color] Low Toner' appears on the display. The printer can continue to print using the current toner cartridge until the control panel displays a message telling you to replace the cartridge.

You may be able to temporarily improve the print quality by redistributing the toner. The control panel display tells you which color cartridge is low in toner.

Solution

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 “Redistributing the Toner” on page 6.5. If this does not improve the print quality, install a

new toner cartridge of faded color.

• The paper may not meet paper specifications (for example,

the paper is too moist or too rough). See “Paper

Specifications” on page E.3.

• A combination of faded or smeared defects may indicate that

the toner cartridge needs cleaning. See page 6.31.

• The surface of the LSU may be dirty. Clean the LSU. See

page 6.30.

• The paper may not meet specifications (for example, the

paper is too moist or too rough). See “Paper Specifications” on page E.3.

• The transfer roller or the paper path may be dirty. See

“Cleaning the Inside of the Printer” on page 6.31.

• 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 E.3.

• The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing process 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.

Solution

If black vertical streaks appear on the page:

• The imaging unit inside the printer has probably been scratched. Install a new imaging unit.

If white vertical lines appear on the page:

• The Laser Scanner window has probably been contaminated, clean the Laser Scanner window. Holding the end of the

cleaner, slide it in and out several times. See “Cleaning the

LSU Inside the Printer” on page 6.30.

If the amount of background shading becomes unacceptable, the procedures below may fix the problem.

• Change to lighter weight pages. See “Paper Specifications” on page E.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 imaging unit and install a new one. See

“Replacing the Imaging Unit” on page 6.14.

• Clean the inside of the printer. See “Cleaning the Inside of the

Printer” on page 6.31

• Check the paper type and quality. See “Paper Specifications” on page E.3.

• Remove the transfer belt and install a new one. See “Replacing the Transfer Belt” on page 6.22.

if you still have the same problems, install a new toner

cartridge of defected color. See “Replacing the Toner

Cartridges” on page 6.8.

• 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.

Problem Solution

Background scatter

Background scatter results from bits of toner distributed on the printed page.

A

• 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 E.3.

• If characters are improperly formed and producing a wavy effect, the scanner unit may need service. Verify that it also occurs on a demo page. Refer to the Setup Guide. For service, contact a service representative.

Curl or wave

• Check the paper type and quality. See “Paper Specifications” on page E.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.

• Check the paper type and quality. Both high temperature and

humidity can cause paper curl. See “Paper Specifications” on page E.3.

• Turn the stack of paper over in the tray. Also try rotating the paper 180° in the tray.

Wrinkles or creases

Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.

• Check the paper type and quality. See “Paper Specifications” on page E.3.

Common Linux Problems

Problem

I can’t change settings in the configuration tool.

Possible Cause and Solution

You need to have administrator privileges to be able to change global settings.

I am using the KDE desktop but the configuration tool and LLPR won’t start.

You may 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.

I get a “Some options are not selected” error message while editing the printer settings.

Some versions of the KDE or GNOME desktop environments may require that you restart your session for the changes to take effect.

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. 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. The default queue in LPRng is defined as the first queue in

/etc./printcap

, therefore it is not possible for the Linux Printer Package to change the default when some queues have otherwise been defined using printtool.

The N-up setting does not work correctly for some of my documents.

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.

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 post-processing if the document being printed isn’t compliant.

ROBLEMS

Problem

I am using BSD lpr

(Slackware, Debian, older distributions) and some options chosen in LLPR don’t seem to take effect.

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.

Possible Cause and Solution

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, you may exceed the length of the options 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 can’t print to a SMB

(Windows) printer.

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.

To be able to configure and use SMB-shared printers (such as printers shared on a Windows printer), 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.

How do I specify the IP address of my SMB server?

It can be specified in the “Add Printer” dialogue of the configuration tool, if you don’t use the CUPS printing system.

Unfortunately, CUPS currently doesn’t allow you 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 the most popular distributions are provided as a convenience with this Linux

Printing Package.

OLVING

33

Problem Possible Cause and Solution

I have CUPS and some options (such as N-up) seem to be always enabled even though I don’t choose them in LLPR.

There may be some local options defined in your

~/

.lpoptions

file, which are manipulated by the lpoptions command. These options are always 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 GDI) printer, I sometimes get error messages printing instead of my document.

Some color images come out all black.

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 fault probably, contact your software vendor to inform them of the issue.

This is a known bug of Ghostscript (until GNU Ghostscript version 7.05) when the base color space of the document is indexed color space and it is converted through CIE color space. Because Postscript uses CIE color space for Color

Matching System, you should upgrade Ghostscript on your system at least GNU Ghostscript version 7.06 or later. You can find the recent Ghostscript at www.ghostscript.com.

About Sharing the Printer on a

Network

If you work in a networked environment, you can connect your printer to the network.

Locally-Shared Printer

You can connect the printer directly to a selected computer, which is called the “host computer” on the network. The printer can then be shared by other users on the network through a

Windows 9x/Me/XP/NT 4.0/2000 network printer connection.

Wired Network-connected Printer

A CLP-500N printer has the built-in network interface. See

page D.7 for information about installing the card.

To use a CLP-500 printer as a network printer, you need to install an optional network interface card in your printer.

Wireless Network-connected Printer

To use your printer in a wireless network environment, you need to install an optional wired/wireless network interface card in

your printer. See page D.7.

Printing Across a Network

Whether the printer is locally connected or network-connected, you need to install the CLP-500 series printer software on each computer that prints documents using the printer.

: When you select 'Search List', the wireless network card on your printer searches for wireless networks in the area and shows the results on the list. Select one on the list.

You cannot change ‘Operation Mode’ and ‘Channel’. If you select ‘Custom’ on the list, you can configure the wireless settings according to your needs and enter a name of up to

32 letters for your ‘Custom’ setting. ‘SSID’ is case sensitive, so you need to change it carefully. Using the Scroll buttons, find the alphabet you want and press the

Enter

button ( ) .

When the cursor moves to the next input field, enter the next letters the same as you entered the first letter. After you entered the last letter of the name, press the

Operation Mode

: ‘Ad-hoc’ mode allows the wireless devices to communicate directly with each other. This is the default operating mode for the print server.

If your network uses an Access Point, you must reconfigure the operation mode to ‘InfraStructure’. ‘InfraStructure’ mode allows both wireless and cabled computers to send files to the printer through an Access Point.

If you select ‘Auto’, the print server selects the operation mode automatically according to the network cable’s connection each time it boots up. If the network cable is detected, the print server enters ‘Ad-hoc’ mode; if not, enters

‘InfraStructure’ mode.

Channel

: This option is available in the ‘Ad-hoc’ mode only.

In most cases, you will not need to change this setting. The print server will scan all available channels for the specified network and will adapt its channel to the one detected.

Default setting is 10.

Authentication

: ‘Open System’ or ‘Shared Key’. The

Samsung print server is not configured for network authentication (Open System). If required by your network, the proper authentication method must be configured on the print server.

Encryption

: No data Encryption, 64 bits, or 128 bits. Default setting is No data Encryption. If your network uses WEP encryption keys, you must configure the encryption keys. You can configure up to four keys. The active key must match the value and active key position (for example, Key 1) configured on other wireless devices.

Use good quality paper.

E

N

OTES

:

• Do not use letterhead paper printed with low-temperature inks, such as those used in some types of thermography.

• Do not use raised or embossed letterhead.

• The printer uses heat and pressure to fuse toner to the paper.

Ensure that any colored paper or preprinted forms use inks that are compatible with this fusing temperature (180°C or 356°F for

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.

Envelopes

Envelope construction is critical. Envelope fold lines can vary considerably, not only between manufacturers, but also within a box from the same manufacturer. Successful printing on envelopes depends upon the quality of the envelopes. When selecting envelopes, consider the following components:

• Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should not exceed

90g/m 2 (24lb) or jamming may occur.

• Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat with less than 6mm (0.25in.) 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.

• Size: You should only use envelopes within the following size ranges.

Multi-purpose

Minimum

90 X 140mm

(3.5 X 5.5in.)

Maximum

216 X 356mm

(8.5 X 14in.)

N

OTES

:

• Use only the Multi-purpose Tray to print envelopes.

• You may experience some paper jams when using any media with a length less than 140mm (5.5in.). This may be caused by paper that has been affected by environmental conditions. For optimum performance, make sure you are storing and handling

the paper correctly. Please refer to “Printer and Paper Storage

Environment” on page E.7.

Envelopes with Double Side Seams

Double side-seams construction has vertical seams at both ends of the envelope rather than diagonal seams. This style may be more likely to wrinkle. Be sure the seam extends all the way to the corner of the envelope as illustrated below.

E

Correct

Incorrect

Envelopes with Adhesive Strips or Flaps

Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one flap that folds over to seal must use adhesives compatible with the heat and pressure in the printer. The extra flaps and strips might cause wrinkling, creasing, or even jams and may even damage the fuser.

Envelope Storage

Proper storage of envelopes helps contribute to print quality.

Envelopes should be stored flat. If air is trapped in an envelope, creating an air bubble, then the envelope may wrinkle during

printing. See “Printing on Envelopes” on page 3.14.

Labels

C

AUTIONS

:

• To avoid damaging the printer, use only labels recommended for laser printers.

• To prevent serious jams, always use the Multi-purpose Tray to print labels and always use the rear output tray.

• Never print on the same sheet of labels more than once and never print on a partial sheet of labels.

When selecting labels, consider the quality of each component:

• 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 with spaces between the labels, causing serious jams.

• Curl: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no more than

13mm (5in.) of curl in any direction.

• Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other indications of separation.

See “Printing on Labels” on page 3.16.

Transparencies

Transparencies used in the printer must be able to withstand

180°C (356°F), the printer’s fusing temperature.

C

AUTION

: To avoid damaging the printer, use only transparencies recommended for use in laser printers.

See “Printing on Transparencies” on page 3.17.
