Fan the paper and insert it into the tray. Make sure the edges go
under the corner hooks.
Do not load paper above the maximum height line (
the line will cause a paper misfeed.
6
). Exceeding
Gently push the paper tray back into the unit.
• Be sure that paper is free of rips, dust, wrinkles, and curled or bent
edges.
• Make sure all the paper in the stack is the same size and type.
• When loading paper, ensure there is no space between the paper and
the guide, and check if the guide is not set too narrow causing the
paper to bend. Loading paper in these ways will result in document
skew or a paper jam.
• When not using the unit for an extended period, remove all paper from
the paper tray and store it in a dry place. If paper is left in the unit for
an extended period, the paper will absorb moisture from the air,
resulting in paper jams.
• When adding new paper to the paper tray, remove the old paper
already contained in the tray. Placing new paper on top of the paper
already contained in the tray may result in feeding two sheets at one
time.
• If output paper curls, it may help to turn the paper over when loading it
in the tray.
16
BYPASS FEED (including special paper)
The multi-bypass tray can be used to feed standard paper, transparency film, labels,
envelopes, and other special purpose paper. Paper measuring from A6 to A4 and in
the weight range of 56g/m2 to 128g/m2 can be used in this tray. (For paper weighing
from 105g/m2 to 128g/m2, A4 is the maximum size.)
• The multi-bypass tray can hold maximum of 50 sheets of paper.
(Capacity will vary depending on the type of paper loaded.)
• The original image must be smaller than the paper or media for
copying. If the original image is bigger than the paper or media, this
may cause smudges on the edges of the copies.
The multi-bypass tray
1

face down) all the way into the multi-bypass tray.
Print face
• Paper must be fed narrow side into the feed slot.
• Special papers such as transparency film, labels, and envelopes
must be fed one sheet at a time through the multi-bypass tray.
• When copying onto transparency film, remove each copy
promptly. Do not let copies stack up.
3
Press the tray select (
) key to select the multi-bypass tray.
Note for loading envelopes
• Envelopes must be fed narrow side into the feed slot at a time.
• Do not use non-standard envelopes, and envelopes that have metal clasps, plastic
snappers, string closures, windows, linings, self-adhesive, patches or synthetic
materials. Do not use envelopes that are filled with air or envelopes that have
labels or stamps attached.
• Envelopes of which the surface is not flat because of embossing may cause the
copies/prints to become smudged.
• Under high humidity and temperature conditions the glue flaps on some envelopes
may become sticky and be sealed when copied/printed.
• Use only envelopes which are flat and crisply folded. Curled or poorly formed
envelopes may be poorly printed or may cause misfeeds.
• Be sure to select either Com10, DL, C5 or Monarch on the paper size setting of the
printer driver. (For detailed information on printer driver, refer to the online manual.)
• It is recommended that you perform a test print before performing the actual copy/
print job.
Note for loading thick paper
Copying on thick paper requires higher fusing temperature setting. Set the user
program 29 to "2 (High)" when using thick paper. (See page 55 and 56.)

MAKING COPIES
This chapter explains basic and other copying functions.
The unit is equipped with a one-page memory buffer. This memory allows the unit to
scan an original once only and make up to 99 copies. This feature improves
workflow, reduces operation noise from the copier, and provides higher reliability by
reducing wear and tear on the scanning mechanism.
If the unit does not function properly during use, or if a function cannot
be used, see "TROUBLESHOOTING THE UNIT" (p.62).
COPY FLOW
1 Make sure that paper has been loaded in the paper tray (p.15)
or multi-bypass tray (p.17), and check the paper size (p.14).
If paper is not loaded, see page 15.
2 Place the original.
If you are using the document glass, see "Using the document glass" (p.47).
If you are using the SPF, see "Using the SPF (AL-2040)" (p.48).
When copying onto paper larger than A4 size, pull out the paper output tray
extension.
3 Select the copy settings.
To set the number of copies, see page 49.
To adjust the resolution and contrast settings, see page 49.
To enlarge or reduce the copy, see page 51.
To change the tray used, see page 51.
To print on both sides of the paper, see page 52.
4 Start copying.
Press the start (
46
) key.
• If you start a print job while a copy job is in progress, the print job will
begin when the copy job is completed.
• The scanning function cannot be used while a copy job is in progress.
About interrupt copying
If you press the start (
) key to begin a copy job while a print job using the paper
tray or multi-bypass tray is in progress, the copy job will begin automatically after the
print data in the unit's memory is printed (interrupt copying). When this is done, the
print data remaining in the computer is not sent to the unit. When the copy job ends,
press the clear key twice, or press the ONLINE key once to change the unit to the
online state (p.33), or wait until the set auto clear time (p.55) elapses. The remaining
print data will be sent to the unit and printing will resume.
* Interrupt copying during two-sided printing is not possible until the print job is finished.
ORIGINAL PLACEMENT
Using the document glass
• The document glass can read up to A4 original.
• Image loss 4mm can occur at the leading and trailing edges of the
copies. Also image loss 4.5mm in total can occur along the other
edges of the copies.
• When copying a book or an original which has been folded or a
crumpled original, press down the original cover/SPF lightly. If the
original cover/SPF is not securely closed, the copies may be striped or
blurred.
• When using the document glass to scan an original, make sure that an
original is not placed in the SPF (AL-2040).
1
Open the original cover/SPF, and place the original.
2
Place an original face down on the document glass. Align it with the
original scale and the centering ( ) mark. Gently close the original
cover/SPF.
5
After placing the original, be sure to close the SPF. If left open, parts outside of
the original will be copied black, causing excessive use of toner. In addition,
toner may scatter inside the machine or the drum cartridge may suffer damage.

47
Using the SPF (AL-2040)
The SPF is designed to hold up to 50 originals measuring from A5 to A4 and
weighting from 56g/m2 to 90g/m2.
• Before feeding originals in the document feeder tray, be sure to
remove any staples or paper clips from them.
• Before placing curled or wavy originals into the document feeder tray,
be sure to flatten them. If not, original misfeeds may result.
• If the original is placed correctly in the SPF, the SPF indicator will light
up. If the original is not placed correctly, the SPF indicator will not
light. If the SPF is not closed correctly, the indicator will blink.
• Badly damaged originals may misfeed in the SPF. It is recommended
that such originals be copied from the document glass.
• Special originals such as transparency film should not be fed through
the SPF, but should be placed directly on the document glass.
• Image loss (max. 4mm) can occur at the leading and trailing edges of
the copies. Also image loss (max. 4.5mm in total) can occur along the
other edges of the copies. It can be 6mm (max.) at the trailing edge of
the second copy of two-sided copying.
• To stop continuous copying using the SPF, press the clear key.
• Copying using one-sided to one-sided mode:
Ensure that no indicator is lit among the original to copy indicators.

MISFEED REMOVAL
When the misfeed ( ) indicator blinks or
blinks in the display, the unit will
stop because of a misfeed. If a misfeed occurs when using the SPF, a number may
appear in the display after a minus sign. This indicates the number of the originals
that must be returned to the original feeder tray after a misfeed. Return the required
number of originals. Then this number will disappear when copying is resumed or the
clear (
) key is pressed. When the SPF misfeeds an original sheet, the unit will
stop and the SPF misfeed (
) indicator will blink, while the misfeed ( ) indicator
will remain off. For a misfeed of originals in the SPF, see "D: Misfeed in the SPF (AL2040)" (p.68).

IF A PAPER MISFEED OCCURS IN THE MAIN UNIT
WHEN USING THE SPF (AL-2040)
If a paper misfeed occurs in the main unit paper path when making copies with
original(s) through the SPF, the SPF will automatically stop scanning. Manually
remove the misfed paper(s) in the main unit. You can check the number of originals
that must be returned to the document feeder tray in the display on the operation
panel. Follow the steps below to display the number of originals to be returned.
The following procedure omits removal of the misfeed. Be sure to remove
the misfeed before displaying the number of originals to be returned. For
the misfeed removal procedure, see "MISFEED REMOVAL" (p.64).

Carcinogenicity : In 1996 the IARC reevaluated carbon black as a Group 2B carcinogen (possible human
carcinogen). This classification is given to chemicals for which there is inadequate human
evidence, but sufficient animal evidence on which to base an opinion of carcinogenicity. The
classification is based upon the development of lung tumors in rats receiving chronic inhalation
exposures to free carbon black at levels that induce particle overload of the lung. Studies
performed in animal models other than rats did not show any association between carbon black

and lung tumors. Moreover, a two-year cancer bioassay using a typical toner preparation
containing carbon black demonstrated no association between toner exposure and tumor
development in rats.
: In a study in rats of chronic inhalation exposure to a typical toner, a mild to moderate degree of
lung fibrosis was observed in 92% of the rats in the high concentration (16mg/m3) exposure
group, and a minimal to mild degree of fibrosis was noted in 22% of the animals in the middle
(4mg/m3) exposure group, but no pulmonary change was reported in the lowest (1mg/m3)
exposure group, the most relevant level to potential human exposures.

Carcinogenicity : In 1996 the IARC reevaluated carbon black as a Group 2B carcinogen (possible human
carcinogen). This classification is given to chemicals for which there is inadequate human
evidence, but sufficient animal evidence on which to base an opinion of carcinogenicity. The
classification is based upon the development of lung tumors in rats receiving chronic inhalation
exposures to free carbon black at levels that induce particle overload of the lung. Studies
performed in animal models other than rats did not show any association between carbon black
and lung tumors. Moreover, a two-year cancer bioassay using a typical toner preparation
containing carbon black demonstrated no association between toner exposure and tumor
development in rats.

MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET
Chronic Effect
Page : 4/4
Date Revised : Mar . 1. 2007
Date Issued : Sep . 1. 2003
MSDS No. F-31231
: In a study in rats of chronic inhalation exposure to a typical toner, a mild to moderate degree of
lung fibrosis was observed in 92% of the rats in the high concentration (16mg/m3) exposure
group, and a minimal to mild degree of fibrosis was noted in 22% of the animals in the middle
(4mg/m3) exposure group, but no pulmonary change was reported in the lowest (1mg/m3)
exposure group, the most relevant level to potential human exposures.
