Paper Recommendations
Loading Paper
• Do not use ink-jet printer paper because it may stick to the fusing unit and cause a paper misfeed.
• When printing on OHP transparencies that have a print side, load them with the print side over on
the bypass tray. Not taking this precaution may cause them to stick to the fusing unit and cause
misfeeds.
• Set the paper as described below
• Tray 1: Print side facing down
5
• Bypass Tray: Print side facing up
• Paper Feed Unit (Tray 2, Tray 3): Print side facing down
• Print quality cannot be guaranteed if paper other than the ones recommended is used. For more
information about recommended paper, contact your sales or service representative.
• Do not use paper that has already been printed onto by other printers.
Storing Paper
• Paper should always be stored properly. Improperly stored paper might result in poor print quality,
paper misfeeds, or printer damage. Recommendations are as follows:
• Avoid storing paper in humid areas.
• Avoid exposing paper to direct sunlight.
• Store on a flat surface.
• Keep paper in the package in which the paper came.

• Do not incinerate spilled toner or used toner. Toner dust is flammable and might ignite when exposed
to an open flame.
• Do not store toner, used toner, or toner containers in a place with an open flame. The toner might
ignite and cause burns or a fire.
• Keep toner (used or unused) and the toner cartridge out of reach of children.
• If toner or used toner is inhaled, gargle with plenty of water and move into a fresh air environment.
Consult a doctor if necessary.
• If your skin comes into contact with toner or used toner, wash the affected area thoroughly with soap
and water.
6
• If toner or used toner gets into your eyes, flush immediately with large amounts of water. Consult a
doctor if necessary.
• Disposal should take place at an authorized dealer or an appropriate collection site.
• If you dispose of the used toner cartridges yourself, dispose of them according to local regulations.
• If toner or used toner is swallowed, dilute by drinking a large amount of water. Consult a doctor if
necessary.
• Avoid getting toner on your clothes or skin when removing a paper jam or replacing toner. If your
skin comes into contact with toner, wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and water.
• If toner gets on your clothing, wash with cold water. Hot water will set the toner into the fabric and
may make removing the stain impossible.
• Keep toner (used or unused) and the toner bottle out of reach of children.
• Do not expose the toner cartridge to light for a long time. Do not leave the front cover open for a long
time. If the toner cartridge is exposed to a light for a long time, the toner cartridge might be damaged
and print quality might be reduced. Replace the toner cartridge immediately.
• The toner cartridge packaged with the printer can print up to 6,000 pages when it is compliant with
ISO/IEC 19752 and the image density is set as the factory default. ISO/IEC 19752 is an international

• Do not use chemical cleaner or organic solvent such as thinner or benzine.
• Actual printable numbers vary depending on image volume and density, number of pages printed at
a time, paper type and size, and environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity. Toner
quality degrades over time. You may have to replace the toner cartridge prematurely. We recommend
you prepare a new toner cartridge beforehand.
• The new toner cartridge can print up to 15,000 pages.
• The life span of pages the toner cartridge can print vary depending on the depletion of toner and the
cartridge parts. The actual number of printed pages you can print from a particular toner cartridge
depends on the paper type, size, orientation, the contents of your print images, number of printout
from a print job, and printing environment conditions. Toner cartridges may need to be changed
sooner than indicated above due to deterioration over the period of use.
• If the following problems occur even with toner still remaining, the fusing part of the toner cartridge
is deteriorated over the period of use. Prepare a new toner cartridge.

7. Cleaning the Printer
Cautions to Take When Cleaning
• Do not remove any covers or screws other than those specified in this manual. Some parts of the
machine are at a high voltage and could give you an electric shock. Also, if the machine has laser
systems, direct (or indirect) reflected eye contact with the laser beam may cause serious eye damage.
When the machine needs to be checked, adjusted, or repaired, contact your service representative.
• Do not take apart or attempt any modifications to this machine. There is a risk of fire, electric shock,
explosion or loss of sight. If the machine has laser systems, there is a risk of serious eye damage.
• When removing misfed paper, do not touch the fusing unit because it could be very hot.
Clean the printer periodically to maintain fine printing.
Dry wipe the exterior with a soft cloth. If dry wiping is not enough, wipe with a soft, wet cloth that is wrung
out well. If you still cannot remove the stain or grime, use a neutral detergent, and then wipe over with a
well-wrung wet cloth, dry wipe, and let it dry.
7
• To avoid deformation, discoloration, or cracking, do not use volatile chemicals, such as benzine and
thinner, or spray insecticide on the printer.
• If there is dust or grime inside the printer, wipe with a clean, dry cloth.
• You must disconnect the plug from the wall outlet at least once a year. Clean away any dust and
grime from the plug and outlet before reconnecting. Accumulated dust and grime pose a fire hazard.

• PDF files not allowed to be printed by the PDF file security setting cannot be printed.
As a result of printing using PDF Direct Printing, characters are missing or misshapen.
Before printing, embed the font in the PDF file to be printed.
A portion of the image is not printed or an error occurred in the PostScript printer driver when
printing with PCL or the PostScript printer driver.
You can print using the procedure below.
• Set [Memory Usage] in the [System] menu to [Font Priority] on the control panel.
9
• Return the setting to [Font Priority] after you have finished printing. If the setting is left as [Font Priority],
continuous printing speed may decrease, two-sided printing may be canceled or a job reset may
occur during continuous printing.
If the entire image is not printed out properly even after changing the above setting, add an additional
memory unit.
The paper size appears on the control panel and printing is not performed with PDF Direct
Print.
When using PDF Direct Print, printout requires paper set within the PDF file. When a message indicating a
paper size appears, either place the indicated size in the paper tray, or perform Form Feed.
Also, if [Sub Paper Size] in the [System] menu is set to [Auto], printing is performed assuming letter size
and A4 size to be the same size. For example, When a PDF file set to A4 size paper is printed using PDF
Direct Print and letter size paper is installed in the paper tray, the file will print out. This applies similarly to
the opposite case.
If the problem cannot be solved, contact your sales or service representative.

Other Printing Problems
When Printer is Not Functioning Properly
Paper is not fed from the selected tray.
When you are using a Windows operating system, the printer driver settings override those set using the
control panel. Set the desired input tray using the printer driver.
See the printer driver Help.
It takes too much time to turn on the printer.
If the printer is turned off while it is still accessing the hard disk (for example: during file deletion), the printer
will require more time to power-up the next time it is turned on. To avoid this time delay, do not turn the
power off while it is in operation.
It takes too much time to resume printing.
• Large or complex data takes long time for the printer to process. If the Data In indicator is blinking,
the data is being processed. Just wait until it resumes.
• If OHP transparencies is in use, printing takes more time to start.
• The printer was in the Energy Saver mode. To resume from the Energy Saver mode, the printer has to
warm up, and this takes time until printing starts. To disable the Energy Saver mode, select [Off] for
[Energy Saver] in the [System] menu.
• Changing the paper feed direction may sometimes reduce the time to resume printing.
It takes too much time to complete the print job.
• Photographs and other data intensive pages take a long time for the printer to process, so simply wait
when printing such data.
Changing the settings with printer driver may help to speed up printing.
See the printer driver Help.
