Windows application that supports printing.
The printer driver includes features that enable you to define the results
of your printed output (documents or images), such as:
❏ Custom paper sizes
❏ Graphic image as an overlay on documents
(for example, to print your company logo on each page)
❏ Multiple pages (up to nine) printed on one sheet of paper
❏ User-defined print profiles for storing and using print preferences.
System Requirements

Printing a Document
3
Once you have installed the software, you are ready to print a document,
from any Windows application that supports printing, such as Word for
Windows.
Predefined printer settings are initially installed, enabling you to print
immediately. These settings determine what your documents look like
when printed. For example, they define such settings as the paper size
and page orientation.
Instructions for printing a document can vary somewhat for different
Windows applications. Therefore, for detailed instructions, see the user
documentation for the specific application from which you are printing.
The following instructions summarize the general procedures for printing
a document.
To print a document:
1. With your document open, click the command to print your
document. (In most Windows applications, the Print command is on
the File menu or toolbar.)
2.
In the Print dialog box, make sure the printer is selected under Printer
(Windows 98/Me) or Select Printer (Windows 2000/XP).
3.
Click the command to print your document (usually OK or Print).
Defining Print Settings: an Overview
3
Print settings determine how your document looks when it is printed.
Although predefined print settings are initially installed with the
software, you may want to change these settings for certain documents.
Print settings can be changed to suit the type of document you are
printing. For example, if you regularly print draft copies of reports, you
can define print settings to suit your printing requirements.

MP330.book Page 9 Tuesday, October 22, 2002 3:21 PM
Meeting Size Requirements
When defining the custom form, the size and printer area margins you set
must meet certain requirements.
When setting the custom size:
The width and height must meet the following minimum and maximum
measurements:
❏ Width: 3.00 inches (7.62 cm) to 8.50 inches (21.59 cm)
❏ Height: 5.00 inches (12.70 cm) to 14.00 inches (35.56 cm).
When setting the printer area margins:
The margins must be set as follows (if you set the custom-sized width less
than 8.35 inches (21.20 cm)):
❏ Top margin: 0.08 inch (0.20 cm)
❏ Bottom margin: 0.24 inch (0.60 cm)
❏ Left margin: 0.08 inch (0.20 cm)
❏ Right margin: 0.08 inch (0.20 cm).
If you set the custom-sized width greater than 8.35 inches (21.20 cm), you
must calculate the left and right printer area margins as follows:
[width] minus 8.19 inches (20.80 cm) divided by 2 equals [left/right
margin]
For example, if you set the width to 8.50 inches (21.59 cm), calculate the
left and right margins as follows:
8.50 inches (21.59 cm) minus 8.19 inches (20.80 cm) divided by 2
equals 0.155 inch (0.395 cm)

Chapter 4
MP330.book Page 5 Tuesday, October 22, 2002 3:21 PM
❏
Is the document printing with undesirable results?
You may experience undesirable results when printing a document if you
have the Windows Printing System (or other bi-directional device, such
as a later model laser printer) installed on your computer and you are
attempting to use the same port on which you also have the printer
connected. Be sure that the printer is the only device configured to a
particular port.
❏
Is the document not printing?
If your document is not printing, consider the following.
To do so, insert the installation disk into your disk drive.
Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.
(If installation does not start automatically, click Start, and then click
Run. In the Run dialog box, type D:\SETUP.EXE (where D: is your
disk drive containing the installation disk), and then click OK.)
❏ You need to check your Windows application settings.
To determine if your Windows application settings may be the
problem, print a test page with your printer driver. To do so, open the
printer properties dialog box. On the General tab, click Print Test
Page.
If the test page prints successfully, the printer and printer driver are
set up appropriately. Therefore, check the settings for your Windows
application.
❏ You may need to remove and reinstall the printer driver.

you are unable to print to the shared printer, check the following:
❏ That the server system, to which the printer is connected, is turned on
❏ That the server system has set the printer to be shared
❏ That the server system is set to allow your system access to the shared
printer.
Paper Is Not Loading Correctly.
❏

Does paper not load into the printer?
The multi-purpose tray might contain too many sheets or paper might not
be inserted all the way into the multi-purpose tray.
❏
Does paper not feed through one sheet at a time?
Be sure to fan the stack of paper before placing it in the multi-purpose
tray.
❏
Is an envelope not loading correctly?

4-6 Frequently Asked Questions
Chapter 4
MP330.book Page 7 Tuesday, October 22, 2002 3:21 PM
❏
Does some of the document content not fit on the page?
Make sure paper is aligned correctly in the multi-purpose tray. Check
that margins and paper size are set correctly in your printing application.
Also, check that the scaling is set appropriately in the printer driver
settings. The scaling may be set to enlarge the document page to a size
that is too large for the paper.
❏
Is printing not clear?
Check the print resolution. A higher resolution prints more clearly.
❏
Do fonts not print smoothly?
Bitmapped fonts designed for dot matrix printers will not look smooth
when printed by your high-resolution printer. Choose another font. Make
sure you install an outline font manager such as Adobe Type Manager or
Bitstream Facelift, or that you choose a TrueType font.
Is the printing not dark enough?
Check the print settings, such as the print resolution, brightness, contrast,
and toner saver. Try replacing the toner cartridge.
❏
Did a toner low warning appear while printing?
If you want to continue printing your document, even though you are
low on toner, change the TONER SUPPLY LOW setting on the printer
from RX TO MEMORY to KEEP PRINTING. (Even if the toner cartridge
is out of toner, the document will not be stored in memory.)
❏
Do vertical white streaks appear?
Vertical white streaks may appear when the error message REPLACE
CARTRIDGE is displayed. This situation indicates that the toner level is
low or that the toner is unevenly distributed in the cartridge.
To resolve the situation, open the printer cover and remove the toner
cartridge. Gently rock the cartridge from side to side five or six times to
evenly distribute the toner inside. Replace the cartridge in the printer,
and close the printer cover.
If redistributing the toner does not resolve the situation, replace your
cartridge.
