Safety Information
IMPORTANT - For Your Safety
To ensure safe operation the three-pin plug supplied must be inserted only into a
standard three-pin power point that is effectively grounded through the normal
household wiring.
Any extension cords used with this printer must be three-conductor and be correctly
wired to provide connection to ground. Improper extension cords are a major cause
of fatalities.
The fact that the equipment operates satisfactorily does not imply that the power is
grounded and that the installation is completely safe. For your safety, if in any
doubt about the effective grounding of the power, consult a qualified electrician.
Disconnect device
This printer must be installed near a power outlet that is easily accessible. In case of
emergencies, you must disconnect the power cord from the power outlet to shut off
the power completely.

REGULATIONS
Wiring Information (For U.K. only)
Important
If the mains plug supplied with this printer is not suitable for your socket outlet,
remove the plug from the mains cord and fit an appropriate three pin plug. If the
replacement plug is intended to take a fuse then fit the same rating fuse as the
original.
If a moulded plug is severed from the mains cord then it should be destroyed
because a plug with cut wires is dangerous if engaged in a live socket outlet. Do not
leave it where a child might find it!
In the event of replacing the plug fuse, fit a fuse approved by ASTA to BS1362
with the same rating as the original fuse.
Always replace the fuse cover. Never use a plug with the cover omitted.
WARNING - THIS PRINTER MUST BE PROPERLY EARTHED.
The wires in the mains cord are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Green and yellow:
Blue:
Brown:
Earth
Neutral
Live
The colours of the wires in the main lead of this printer may not correspond with
the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug.
If you need to fit a different plug, proceed as follows.
Remove a length of the cord outer sheath, taking care not to damage the coloured
insulation of the wires inside.
Cut each of the three wires to the appropriate length. If the construction of the plug
permits, leave the green and yellow wire longer than the others so that, in the event
that the cord is pulled out of the plug, the green and yellow wire will be the last to
disconnect.
Remove a short section of the coloured insulation to expose the wires.
The wire which is coloured green and yellow must be connected to the terminal in
the plug which is marked with the letter “E” or by the safety earth symbol or
coloured green or green and yellow.
The wire that is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked
with the letter “N” or coloured black or blue.
xv
USER’S GUIDE
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal that is marked
with the letter “L” or coloured red or brown.
The outer sheath of the cord must be secured inside the plug. The coloured wires
should not hang out of the plug.

Connecting the Printer to Your Computer
This printer has a bi-directional parallel interface and an RS-232C serial
interface. They allow the printer to communicate with IBM/PC® or
compatible computers. Before connecting the printer and computer, you
need to purchase a connecting cable specifically made for the interface to
be used
Since the automatic interface selection mode has been factory set, simply
connect the interface cable to the printer. In some cases, you need to turn
off the high-speed and bi-directional parallel communications with the
Mode button. For further information, see “MODE Button” in Chapter 4.
When you use the serial interface, you need to have the same
communications settings on both the printer and computer. Since the
automatic interface selection mode has been factory set with certain
factory settings (baud rate = 9600, code type = 8 bits, parity = none, stop
bit = 1, Xon/Xoff = ON, DTR (ER) = ON, and Robust Xon = ON), you
may simply connect the interface cable if these are the same as the
settings on your computer. When necessary, set the communications
parameters with the Mode button on the printer. For further information,
see “MODE Button” in Chapter 4. For the settings on the computer, see
the manual of the computer or software you use.
Connect the printer to your computer as follows:

CHAPTER 2 SETTING UP THE PRINTER
✒ Notes
• The installer automatically updates your SYSTEM.INI Windows  file
by adding DEVICE=bi-di.386 under the [386Enh] section. If any bidirectional parallel communications device driver was installed
previously, it will be deactivated by the new driver. If you wish to
use old driver, you should re-install it. Re-installing the previous
driver will make the new HL-2400Ce driver inactive.
• The installer makes the installed printer driver the Windows  default.
• The installer automatically sets the printer port to the parallel
interface, LPT1.
• During this installation, changes have been made to the SYSTEM.INI
file. It is necessary to restart Windows so that the changes become
effective and the installed bi-directional parallel communications
device driver can take effect.

CHAPTER 3 BEFORE WORKING WITH THE PRINTER
CHAPTER 3
BEFORE WORKING WITH THE PRINTER
AUTOMATIC EMULATION SELECTION
This printer has an automatic emulation selection function. When the
printer receives data from the computer, it automatically selects the
emulation mode. This function has been factory set to ON.
The printer can select the emulation among the following combinations:
EPSON/IBM Priority
Auto Selection Mode
EPSON (default)
HP PCL 5C
BR-Script 2
HP-GL
EPSON FX-850
IBM
HP PCL 5C
BR-Script 2
HP-GL
IBM Proprinter XL
To get the most out of this laser printer, we recommend you use the
Brother BR-Script 2 emulation.
The printer is set to the HP color printer emulation (PCL5C) mode
automatically. Since PCL5C mode takes the highest priority in the
automatic emulation selection, you can start using the printer as it is with
the factory settings in most cases.
When the automatic emulation selection is active, you can check the
current emulation on the display. When the printer is in ready, print or
wait modes, the display reads as follows:

To select the emulation mode manually, use the Emulation button. For
further information, see “EMULATION Button” in Chapter 4.
3–1
USER’S GUIDE
✒ Notes
When you use the automatic emulation selection, note the following:
• Once the emulation is automatically changed, it is not changed again
for a short period of time. This time period is called “Time Out” and it
can be set with the Emulation button. The factory setting is 5
seconds.
• The EPSON or IBM emulation mode priority must be selected, since
the printer cannot distinguish between them. The factory default
setting is EPSON emulation mode. If you wish to use IBM emulation,
you will need to select it manually using the Emulation button Try
this function with your application software or network server. If the
function does not work properly, select the required emulation mode
manually using the printer panel buttons or use emulation selection
commands from your software.
3–2
CHAPTER 3 BEFORE WORKING WITH THE PRINTER
AUTOMATIC INTERFACE SELECTION
This printer has an automatic interface selection function. When the
printer receives data from the computer, it automatically selects the bidirectional parallel, RS-232C serial interface, NC-3100h or MIO interface
as appropriate.
When you use the parallel interface, you can turn the high-speed and bidirectional parallel communications on or off with the Mode button. For
more information, see “MODE Button” in Chapter 4. Since the automatic
interface selection mode has been factory set to ON, simply connect the
interface cable to the printer. (Note: Always turn off both your computer
and printer when connecting or disconnecting the cable).
When using the serial interface, you must have the same communication
settings on both the printer and computer. Since the automatic interface
selection mode has been factory set for standard computer serial link,
you may be able to simply connect the interface cable to the printer if
your computer already has the settings detailed below:
Communications Parameters
Baud rate (data transfer speed)
Code type (data length)
Parity (data error check)
Stop bit (data separator)
Xon/Xoff (handshake protocol)
DTR (ER)
Robust Xon
Factory Settings
9600
8 bits
None
1 stop bit
ON
ON
OFF
If a commercial interface card has been installed in the MIO card slot, it
can be selected automatically.
When necessary, select the interface or the serial communications
parameters manually with the Mode button (INTERFACE MODE) on
the printer. For more information, see “MODE Button” in Chapter 4. For
the settings on your the computer, please refer to your user’s manual for
your computer or application software.
3–3
USER’S GUIDE
✒ Notes
When you use the automatic interface selection, note the following:
• Once the interface is automatically changed, it is not changed again
for a short period of time. This time period is called “Time Out” and it
can be set with the Mode button. The factory setting is 5 seconds.
• The communications parameters [ baud rate, code type, parity, stop
bit, Xon/Xoff, DTR(ER), and Robust Xon] must be set for the serial
interface. Although they have been factory set as shown in the above
table, you may need to change them with the Mode button.
• The automatic interface selection function takes a few seconds to
work. If you want to speed up printing, select the required interface
manually via the Mode button.
If you typically use only one interface, we recommend you select that
interface as your default.. If only one interface is selected, the printer will
allocate all of the input buffer to that interface.

About Routine Maintenance Messages
This printer has some user serviceable parts that require periodic
replacement. The printer counts the number of printed pages and detects
the life of each of these parts. When the part nears the end of its useful
life, the following messages appear on the LCD display. These messages
will over-write the Emulation Mode status information.
Refer to Chapter 5 for detailed information on consumables life.

SEL Button
Pressing the Sel button toggles the printer mode between on-line and offline. When the printer is on-line, the On Line LED lights and the printer
is ready to receive data from the computer. When the printer is off-line,
the On Line LED is off.
To receive data from the computer, set the printer on-line. To operate the
control panel buttons, set the printer off-line.
If you press the Sel button when the printer is on-line, it takes the printer
off-line and the LCD displays the current emulation.
You can enter other emulations in the AUTO emulation mode by
pressing the ▲ (UP) or ▼ (DOWN) button.

CHAPTER 4 CONTROL PANEL
✒ Notes
When you press the Sel button, remember the following:
• All other buttons—except the Sel button—are operational only when
the printer is off-line.
• If the printer is not in AUTO emulation mode, the LCD displays the
current emulation by pressing the Sel button to take it off-line, but
you cannot enter other emulation modes. To make settings in other
emulation modes, press the Emulation button and select the
emulation.
• The Sel button works as a “quick exit” button. If you are lost in the
display menus or you want to quickly exit the display menu, press the
Sel button. You can exit quickly from any level of the display menu
to the on-line mode. If you have already made a setting effective by
pressing the Set button and then press the Sel button to quickly exit,
your setting (whether made by accident or on purpose) will remain
effective. Pressing the Sel button will not cancel any setting you have
made.
SET Button
Pressing the Set button allows you to select certain items on the display
or make the displayed menu or setting effective. The button also works as
an execute button to perform the displayed function.
When you press the Set button, the printer stores the settings you have
selected into the memory as “User Settings.” Every time you turn on the
printer, it is reset to these user settings. They remain effective until you
make new settings or restore them to the factory settings. For factory
reset, see “RESET Button” in this chapter.
✒ Note
When you press the Set button to select a setting, for a short time an
asterisk appears at the end of the display. Since the asterisk then indicates
the current selection, you can easily find the current setting again when
you scroll through the display.
▲ (UP) or ▼ (DOWN) Button
Press the ▲ (UP) or ▼ (DOWN) button to scroll forward or backward
through the menus and settings. Press or continue pressing the button
until you locate your desired option.

Parallel Communications
Turn on or off the high speed

Turn on or off the bi-directional

The above high-speed and bi-directional settings are used for the
bi-directional parallel interface of this printer. The bi-directional parallel
interface is compatible with the IEEE 1284 standard. Although it uses the
same cable, hardware and software as the bi-directional parallel interface,
to use its enhanced capabilities—such as bi-directional communication
between the computer and printer and faster transmission of data—you
must install the Brother driver supplied on the CD-ROM included with
the printer or a third party printer driver or software that supports these
features. Check with your software vendor to see if your software

USER’S GUIDE
✒ Notes
When you choose settings in PAGE FORMAT MODE, note the
following:
• Letter size has been factory set for 120V models. A4 size has been
factory set for 220/240V models.
• When you use paper smaller than specified in the PAGE FORMAT
MODE, be sure that the print area is smaller than the paper size;
otherwise the inside of the printer will get stained with toner. We
recommend that you perform a test before actual use. For this test,
you should use letter or A4 size of paper to confirm that the printed
area is completely within the margins of the paper size you intend
using. This simple test will help prevent toner from spreading
throughout the inside of your printer, which may cause later print
jobs to be smudged with toner.
• The factory settings for the right/left margins and lines vary according
to the paper size and orientation. See the tables below.
• The top and bottom margins have been factory set to 0.5” in the HP
emulation mode and to 0.33” in the non-HP emulation modes.
• The setting margins are subject to the current page orientation. The
display shows the current orientation with “P” for portrait and “L” for
landscape.
• Images offset outside the print area are not printed.
■ About Right and Left Margins
The settings range of the right and left margins are subject to the page
orientation as follows. The right margin should be placed 10 columns
greater than the left margin: minimum text width = 10 columns.
If the orientation is changed, the margin settings are restored to the
factory settings. If the paper size is changed and the right and left margins
exceed the paper size, they are restored to the factory settings: if they do
not exceed the paper size, they remain effective.
The following table shows the range of settings in columns. The factory
settings are printed in bold.

CHAPTER 4 CONTROL PANEL
■ About Line Settings
Setting the number of lines/page automatically sets the line spacing or
line feed pitch. If the paper size is changed, the number of lines/page
changes accordingly. The new setting is calculated with the following
expression and the remainder, if any, is ignored. However, the line feed
pitch and the top and bottom margins remain effective.
# of Lines/Page =
Page Length – (Top Margin + Bottom Margin)
Line Feed Pitch [Vertical Motion Index (VMI)]
The setting of lines/page is subject to the current paper size and
orientation. For example, when letter-sized paper is used, the printer can
print 60 lines per page in portrait orientation. If the orientation is
changed, the line settings are restored to the factory settings in that
orientation.

because of insufficient memory. However, it automatically decreases
the resolution to 300 dpi to print them. While the printer is printing in
this mode, the display prompts “01 PR300 … .”
• If the printer cannot print files even at 300 dpi, a “MEMORY FULL”
error occurs. See “TROUBLESHOOTING” in Chapter 6.
• This automatic resolution decrease function works with the page
protection on. See also “PAGE PROTECTION” in this chapter.
• When you want to print large and complex full color data without
decreasing the resolution, you should expand the memory capacity of
the printer.
■ CAPT Setting

USER’S GUIDE
✒ Notes
When you send data to be saved on the card, it is temporarily stored in the
RAM of the printer. Note the following:
• If the received data exceeds the RAM capacity, a memory full error
occurs. You can clear this error with the Continue button. When this
error occurs, only part of the image has been stored in RAM,
therefore, you cannot save the data to the card.
• The printer is reset to ensure as much capacity as possible is available
in RAM. If any data remains, it will be printed first.
After you have finished sending data, press the Set button again, so that
the printer exits from the data reception status.
When you exit from the data reception status, select the data ID with the

You can execute a macro with the macro execution command.
• Primary Font or Secondary Font
✒ Note
The “PRIMARY FONT” and “SECONDARY FONT” menus appear only
in the HP PCL5C emulation mode.
If you have selected the primary or secondary font with the Font button,
you can save the font on the installed flash memory card or HDD card.
When you press the Set button at the “PRIMARY FONT” or
“SECONDARY FONT” message, the printer prompts you to select the
ID of the font.
Select the ID with the ▲ or ▼ button and press the Set button again, so
that the printer saves the font with the selected ID.
✒ Note
When you see an asterisk on the display, the ID number has been used for
another font. If you select the used ID number, the old font will be erased
and replaced with the new one.
Whatever font you have selected via the Font button, the printer will
save it as a bitmapped font as long as the print size is no more than 24
point. This allows the printer to print fonts faster than when they are not
saved. We recommend that you save the scalable fonts that you
frequently use as bitmap fonts for faster printing.
Since the flash memory card is in card slot 1 or 2 (the HDD card can only
be used in card slot 2), fonts stored in the card behave in the same way as
they would if they were in a dedicated Font Card. You can select the
saved fonts as “DEVICE1 FONT” or “DEVICE2 FONT” with the Font
button or the font selection command from your software. For font
selection, see “FONT Button” in this chapter.
You can check the saved fonts by printing the list of fonts with the Test
button. See “TEST Button” in this chapter.

USER’S GUIDE
✒ Notes
When you save the primary or secondary font, note the following:
• The font is temporarily stored in the RAM of the printer before it is
saved on the device. If the font data exceeds the RAM capacity, a
memory full error occurs. You can clear this error with the Continue
button. As not all the font data has been stored in RAM, you cannot
save the font to the device. When the font data is saved, the printer is
reset to ensure as much capacity as possible in RAM. If any data
remains, it is printed.
• If you have saved the font at 600-dpi resolution and change the printer
resolution to 300 dpi, the printer cannot print the saved font.
• Download Font
✒ Notes
• The “DOWNLOAD FONT” menu appears only in the HP PCL5C
emulation mode.
• Be sure to print the list of download fonts with the Test button and
check the download font ID on the list before you enter this menu.
You must select the font in this menu using the same number you see
on the list.
If you have downloaded a font into the printer memory, you can save it
on the flash memory card, HDD card or optional HDD.
The printer prompts you to select the download font ID that you can
choose from the font list. Press the ▲ or ▼ button to move the cursor to
the ID and select it with the Set button.
✒ Note
The download font IDs do not appear when fonts have not been
downloaded.
After you have selected the download font ID, press the Set button, so
that the printer saves the selected download font. Vector or bitmapped
fonts are saved in the format of the original font.
Once you save the downloaded font in the device, you will not need to
download the font every time you want to use it.
Since the font can be saved in either the flash memory card in card slot 1 or 2
(the HDD card can be used only in card slot 2) of the printer, or in the optional
HDD, you can select the saved fonts as “DEVICE1(2 or 3) FONT” with the
Font button or the font selection command from your software. For font
selection, see “FONT Button” in this chapter.

CHAPTER 4 CONTROL PANEL
You can check the fonts saved on the card by printing the list of fonts
with the Test button. See “TEST Button” in this chapter.
✒ Note
When the fonts on the HDD card are selected in a print job, they are
copied into the printer RAM. It may cause a printer memory full error
because those fonts occupy some RAM space. We recommend that you
install optional DIMM memory to use the downloaded fonts on the HDD
card.

SCALABLE FONT
✒ Note
The setting in this mode menu is effective only in the HP PCL5C mode. It
does not appear in any other emulation modes.
Since this printer has many scalable fonts, some application programs
may not be able to handle them correctly. When the HP PCL5C
emulation mode has been selected, the printer may print a different font
rather than the font you have selected with your program or a font
selection command.
To cope with this font problem, you can restrict the font selection by
using this setting as follows:
Display Message
FONT=ALL
FONT=LJ
Scalable Font
All scalable fonts for this printer can be selected
with the font selection command. (Factory
setting)
Scalable fonts for this printer other than the
following can be selected with the font selection
command: Atlanta, Bermuda Script, PC Brussels,
Copenhagen, Germany, Portugal, Calgary, San
Diego, and US Roman.
Even if you restrict the font selection as above, you can select among all
the scalable fonts with the Font button. The setting in this mode menu
merely restricts the font selection command from an application to avoid
incorrect font selections.

USER’S GUIDE
FONT Button
Pressing the Font button allows you to select fonts and symbol/character
sets.
✒ Notes
When you use the Font button, note the following:
• The Font button is effective in the HP PCL5C, EPSON FX-850, and
IBM Proprinter XL modes. However the settings are subject to the
current emulation mode. Note that the Font button does not work in
the BR-Script 2 mode.
• If the application software supports font and symbol/character set
selection, you do not need to set them with the Font button. The
software or command setting overrides the button setting.
• If you want to use optional fonts instead of the printer’s resident fonts,
be sure to install a font cartridge/card that has your preferred fonts.
The printer automatically selects the font that has exactly the same or
similar characteristics as those you set through the software or with a
command. If the installed font cartridge/card happens to have a font of
similar characteristics, the printer will print with an unexpected font.
• You can store the fonts you require on a flash memory card or HDD
card only in the HP PCL5C mode or BR-Script 2 mode when a card is
installed. See “DEVICE OPERATION.”

FORM FEED Button (REPRINT Button)
The Form Feed button works in two ways according to the Data LED
status.
Form Feed
When the printer is off-line and there is data remaining in the printer
memory, the Data LED comes on. Pressing the Form Feed button
executes a form feed and prints the remaining data.
If you set the number of copies with the Copy button and press the Sel
button during copy printing, the printer suspends the form feed operation.
Pressing the Sel button again resumes the form feed operation.
If no data remains in the printer memory and you press the Form Feed
button, the printer ignores this button operation.
✒ Note
If you want the printer to print the remaining data automatically, you can
set the auto form feed function with the Mode button. See “AUTO
FORMFEED” in this chapter.
Reprint Function
You can reprint the last print job without sending it from the computer
again. When you press the Form Feed button with the Data LED off,
the printer reprints the pages of the last print job. You can use this
function to recover printing when a paper jam has occurred.
After printing is finished, set the printer off-line and press the Form
Feed button once, so that the printer prints the pages of the last print job.
However, if there is not enough memory to keep all the pages of the last
print job, the printer will print only the last page of the last job.
When you press the Form Feed button one or more times during
reprinting, you can set the number of copies to reprint. The printer
reprints the last job the number of times you press the button.
✒ Note
The reprint data remains in the printer’s memory until the printer is reset
or the emulation, or some settings, are changed. After you have reprinted
confidential data, be sure to reset the printer to clear it from the printer

CONTINUE Button
If there is a problem with the printer, it automatically suspends printing
and goes off-line. Pressing the Continue button may ignore the error and
resume printer operation.
The function of this button varies according to the CONTINUE mode set
with the Mode button.
Since the CONTINUE mode has been factory set to MANUAL, you need
to press the Continue button to recover from a printer error message. If
you set the mode to AUTO, the printer attempts to resume the printing
operation without the need to press the Continue button.
For more information, see “CONTINUE MODE” in this chapter.
✒ Note
The Continue button is not a cure-all. The printer cannot recover from
some errors. Take corrective action, referring to the error message. See
“TROUBLESHOOTING” in Chapter 6.

CHAPTER 4 CONTROL PANEL
About Emulation Modes
This printer has the following emulation modes:
■ HP PCL5C Mode
This printer emulates Hewlett-Packard PCL5C color printers and PCL6
monochrome printers. This is the default emulation setting of the printer.
Since many popular software packages support this emulation, this may
be the best choice for general use.
■ BR-Script 2 Mode (color)
BR-Script is a Brother original page description language and it is a
PostScript® language emulation interpreter. This printer has level 2 BRScript, which supports full color printing at 600 dpi. BR-Script enables
superior control for text and graphics printing. The HL2400Ce will
deliver optimum performance in this mode.
Average users do not need to know much about PostScript® language. If
you want to obtain technical information about PostScript ® , please refer

■ HP-GL Mode (monochrome)
The HP-GL mode is the emulation mode where this printer emulates the
Hewlett-Packard plotter model HP-7475A. Since many graphics and
CAD applications support this type of plotter, you can get more out of
this printer working with your application software.
■ EPSON FX-850 and IBM Proprinter XL Mode (monochrome)
The EPSON FX-850 and IBM Proprinter XL emulations allow the HL2400Ce to support the printer control language of industry-standard dot
matrix printers..

duration after which the fixing assembly of the print engine is turned off
(“SLEEP”) to save power.

USER’S GUIDE
✒ Notes
When you select a feeder, note the following:
• The “FEEDER=TRAY2” message appears only when the optional
lower tray unit has been installed.
• The FEEDER=AUTO setting allows you to optimize your printing
environment. This setting allows a print job to continue uninterrupted
when a paper out condition occurs. The default setting is AUTO. This
setting allows a common printing situation: Loading the same size
and type of paper in both paper trays allows your print job to continue
without error if one of the paper trays becomes empty. The printer
automatically will select the other tray when one tray becomes empty.
• When you select FEEDER=AUTO, the printer automatically searches
for the paper size you set with the Mode button in the PAGE
FORMAT mode and then loads the paper from the paper source that
contains the selected size of paper. If the upper and lower Media
Cassettes contain different sizes of paper and one Media Cassette runs
out of paper, the printer stops printing without automatically changing
to the other paper source to feed paper. It prevents the incorrect size
of paper from being printed by mistake.
• If you have the same size of paper loaded but of different type (i.e.:
FORM “A” in Tray 1, Form “B” in Tray 2) we recommended that you
change the feeder setting from AUTO to Tray 1. This will pause the
printer when a paper empty condition occurs, allowing you to load the
correct type of paper. Press Select to finish the print job.

the printer exits from the setting mode to the off-line state.
When you select “AUTO”, the tray selection menu for the auto
paper feed appears on the display.
5.
Change the tray combination and priority with the ▲ or ▼
button.
When “AUTO=T1>T2” is set, both Tray 1 and the Tray 2 are
selected but tray 1 will be selected first if the paper size in tray
1 and the page size for the print job match each other. (If you
are using the optional Lower Tray and want to give priority to
Tray 2, you can use the “AUTO=T2>T1” setting.)
6.
Press the Set button.
CHAPTER 4 CONTROL PANEL
MANUAL MODE
This printer has no manual feed tray or multi-purpose tray. Therefore you
cannot feed special paper in the usual way. However this printer has a
special Manual Feed Mode with Tray 1 to accommodate non-standard
paper sizes. When “MANUAL MODE=ON” is selected or a manual feed
command is sent to the printer, the printer will wait for you to replace the
paper in Tray 1 with the paper for manual printing.

Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select the manual mode on or off.
2.
Press the Set button to make the setting effective.
MEDIA TYPE

bond paper, envelope, or transparency), the appropriate media type must
be selected in the media type mode to get the best print quality.
1.
2.

✒ Note
Please do not forget to change the setting back to regular after you
have printed on your special media with the setting changed.
SMALL SIZE
This printer can detect the size of paper in the trays automatically. If there
is no paper loaded as specified by the user application, the printer
prompts the user to load the correct size paper by displaying “LOAD
PAPER XX SIZE” on the LCD panel. The printer can detect A4, Letter,
Executive, Legal (only in Optional Legal Cassette) and B5(ISO), but not
A5, B5(JIS), COM10 and DL size even though they can be handled.
For this reason, it is necessary to change the detection size for paper
smaller than B5.

Press the Set button to enter the small size mode. The display
then shows the current setting with an asterisk. Then select
“T1” or “T2”.

CHAPTER 5 MAINTENANCE
Selecting the Optional Fonts
After you have installed the optional font card, you can select optional
fonts by any of the following methods:
1. Through your application software
2. With a font selection command
3. With the Font button
When you select fonts through your application software, follow the
instructions specific to your software. Refer to your software manual if
you need assistance. When you select fonts with a font selection
command, embed the font selection command in your program. See the
Technical Reference Manual, which is optionally available for this
printer.
✒ Notes
When you select the fonts through your software or with a command,
note the following:
• You do not need to be concerned about the Font button setting. The
software or command setting overrides the button setting.
• Be sure to install the font card that has your desired fonts. The printer
automatically selects the font that has exactly the same or similar
characteristics as those you set through the software or with a
command. If the installed font card happens to have a font of similar
characteristics, the printer will print in an unexpected font.
To select fonts with the Font button, follow these basic steps:
1. Print the list of optional fonts in the PRINT FONTS C mode with the
Shift and Test buttons.
2. Find the font slot and font ID number on the list.
Slot 1 or 2

CHAPTER 6 TROUBLESHOOTING
Paper Handling
Question
The printer does not load
paper.
How can I load envelopes?
What paper can I use?
How can I clear paper jams?
The printer loads more than
one sheet at a time.
The printer doesn’t eject paper.
Paper loads skewed.
Sometimes mis-picking of
paper from the paper tray or
mis-feeding of paper from the
paper exit occurs.
Recommendation
• Check to see if the Alarm LED is on. If so, the
Media Cassette may be out of paper or not
properly installed. If it is empty, load a new stack
of paper into the Media Cassette.
• If there is paper in the Media Cassette, make sure
that it is straight. If the paper is curled, you should
straighten it before printing. Sometimes it is
helpful to remove the paper, turn the stack over
and replace it in the paper tray.
• Reduce the stack of paper in the Media Cassette,
then try again.
You can load envelopes from the Media Cassette.
Make sure you adjust the paper guide. Your
application software also must be set up correctly to
print on the envelope size you are using. This is
usually done in the page setup or document setup
menu of your software. Refer to your applications
manual for further information.
See ‘Paper Handling’ in Chapter 3 for detailed paper
specifications.
See the “PAPER JAMS” section in this chapter.
Check to see if:
• The paper loaded is all the same type.
• Paper that meets the specifications is loaded.
• Papers were fanned before loading.
• The stack of paper is not too high.
• The side guide is not set too tight.
Set the printer Off-line, then push the Form Feed
button. Then push the On Line button.
Check the following;
• The side guide is adjusted correctly.
• The amount of paper you have loaded is correct.
Refer to the ‘Loading Paper in the Media
Cassette’ section in Chapter 2.
Clean the Paper Guide, the Registration Roller and
the Exit Roller referring to ‘Periodical Printer
Cleaning’ in Chapter 5.

Printing
Question
The printer prints unexpectedly
or it prints incorrect characters.
The computer hangs up when
the printer starts printing, or an
application error occurs.
My headers or footers appear
when I view my document on
screen but do not show up
when I print them.
Printing takes too long.
The printer doesn’t print in
color
6–16
Recommendation
• Cancel the print job from your computer. Then,
turn on and off the printer or reset the printer and
try your print job again.
• Make sure your application software is correctly
set up to use this printer and check the printer
driver settings or printer settings in your
application software.
Check to see if the system resources are enough (PC
memory, etc). When you have many applications
open, the system resources of your PC will not be
enough and your PC will hang up. Close applications
you are not using and try again.
Most laser printers have a restricted area that cannot
be printed on. Adjust the top and bottom margins in
your document to allow for this.
• When you print color graphic images, there is a
large amount of data and the printer will take a
relatively long time to complete printing.
• When you print in Super Fine mode, the printer
will take a relatively long time to finish printing.
• When the Data LED is blinking, the printer is
making itself ready to print. Printing speed
depends on memory size or performance of your
PC and memory size of the printer.
• The printer may be set in monochrome mode.
• Check that the color toner(s) have not run out.

■ PAPER
The printer is designed to work well with most types of xerographic and
bond paper. However, some paper variables may have an effect on print
quality or handling reliability. Always test samples of paper before buying
to ensure that it provides desirable performance. Some important
guidelines when selecting paper are:
1. Supplier should be informed that the paper or envelopes will be used
in a laser printer.
2. Preprinted papers must use inks that can withstand the temperature of
the printers fusing process. (200 degrees centigrade)
3. If you have selected a cotton bond paper, paper having a rough surface
such as cockle or laid finished paper or paper that is wrinkled or
puckered, these types of paper may exhibit degraded performance.
Appendix–5
USER’S GUIDE
✒ Note
The manufacturer does not warrant the use of any particular paper. The
operator is responsible for the quality of paper used with the printer.
Paper Types to Avoid
Some types of paper might not perform well or may cause damage to your
printer.
Types of paper to avoid are:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Highly textured paper.
Smooth or shiny paper.
Paper that is coated or has a chemical finish.
Damaged, wrinkled or pre-folded paper.
Paper exceeding the recommend weight specification specified in the
manual.
6. Paper with tabs and staples.
7. Letterheads using low temperature dyes or thermography.
8. Multipart or carbonless paper.
DAMAGE OR OTHER DEFECTS CAUSED BY THE USE OF
PAPERS LISTED UNDER “PAPER TYPES TOAVOID” WILL
NOT BE COVERED UNDER ANY WARRANTY OR SERVICE
AGREEMENTS.
■ ENVELOPES
Most envelopes will perform acceptably on your printer. However; some
envelopes will have feeding and print quality problems because of their
construction. A suitable envelope should have edges with a straight, well
creased folds and should not have more than two thickness of paper along
the lead edge. The envelope should lie flat and not have baggy or flimsy
construction. Purchase quality envelopes only from a supplier who
understands that the envelopes will be used in a laser printer. All
envelopes should be tested prior to use to ensure desirable print results.
Envelope Types to Avoid
1. Envelopes constructed with a paper with a weight that exceeds the
paper weight specifications for the printer.
2. Poorly manufactured envelopes with edges that are not straight or
consistently square.
3. Envelopes with “baggy” construction or folds that are not sharply
creased.
4. Envelopes with transparent windows, holes, cutouts or perforations.
Appendix–6
APPENDICES
5.
6.
7.
8.
Envelopes with clasps, snaps or tie strings.
Envelopes made with smooth or shiny paper.
Envelopes that are rough, highly textured, or deeply embossed.
Envelopes that do not lie flat or that are curled, wrinkled, or
irregularly shaped.
9. Envelopes having an open flap with an adhesive that seals the
envelope.
USE OF ANY OF THE ENVELOPES LISTED ABOVE MAY
CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR PRINTER. SUCH DAMAGE IS
NOT COVERED UNDER ANY WARRANTY OR SERVICE
AGREEMENT.
✒ Note
The manufacturer neither warrants nor recommends the use of a particular
envelope because envelope properties are subject to change by the
envelope manufacturer. The entire responsibility for the quality and
performance of the envelope lies with the customer.
■ LABELS AND OVERHEAD TRANSPARENCIES
The printer will print on most type of labels and transparencies designed
for use with a laser printer. Labels should have an adhesive that is acrylicbased since such material is more stable at the high temperatures in the
fusing unit. Adhesives should not come in contact with any part of the
printer, because the label stock may stick to the drum or rollers and cause
jams and print quality problems. No adhesive should be exposed between
the labels. Labels should be arranged so that they cover the entire page
with the only exposed spaces being lengthwise down the sheet. Using
labels with spaces may result in labels peeling off and causing serious jam
or print problems.
All labels and transparencies used in this printer must be able to withstand
a temperature of 200 degrees centigrade (392 degrees Fahrenheit) for a
period of 0.1 seconds.
Label and transparency sheets should not exceed the paper weight
specifications described in the User’s Guide. Labels and transparencies
exceeding this specification may not feed or print properly and cause
damage to your printer.
The entire responsibility for the quality and performance of labels and
transparencies lies with the customer.
DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE USE OF UNSATISFACTORY
LABELS OR TRANSPARENCIES IS NOT COVERED UNDER
ANY WARRANTY OR SERVICE AGREEMENTS.
