Print Media Guidelines
Print media is paper, card stock, transparencies, labels, and envelopes. Your printer provides high quality
printing on a variety of print media. Selecting the appropriate print media for your multi-function printer
helps you avoid printing problems. This chapter provides information on how to help you make print media
selections, how to care for the print media, and how to load it in the standard Tray1, optional Tray2 or
manual feeder.
Paper
For the best print quality, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb) xerographic, long grain paper. Try a sample of any paper you
are considering using with the multi-function printer before buying large quantities.
When loading paper, note the recommended print side on the paper package, and load paper accordingly.
See "Loading Print Media in the Paper Tray" on page 63 and "Using the Manual Feeder" on page 64 for
detailed loading instructions.
Paper Characteristics
The following paper characteristics affect print quality and reliability. We recommend that you follow these
guidelines when evaluating new paper stock.
Weight
The multi-function printer can automatically feed paper weights from 60 to 105 g/m2 (16 to 28 lb bond)
grain long in the ADF and from 60 to 90 g/m2 (16 to 24 lb bond) grain long in the paper tray. Paper lighter
than 60 g/m2 (16 lb) may not be stiff enough to feed properly, causing jams. For best performance, use 75
g/m2 (20 lb bond) long grain paper.
Curl
Curl is the tendency of print media to curve at its edges. Excessive curl can cause paper feeding problems.
Curl usually occurs after the paper passes through the multi-function printer, where it is exposed to high
temperatures. Storing paper unwrapped in humid conditions, even in the paper tray, can contribute to paper
curling prior to printing and can cause feeding problems.
Smoothness
The degree of smoothness of paper directly affects print quality. If the paper is too rough, the toner does not
fuse to the paper properly, resulting in poor print quality. If the paper is too smooth, it can cause paper
feeding problems. Smoothness should be between 100 and 300 Sheffield points; however, smoothness
between 150 and 250 Sheffield points produces the best print quality.
Moisture Content
The amount of moisture in the paper affects both print quality and the ability of the multi-function printer to
feed the paper properly. Leave the paper in its original wrapper until you are ready to use it. This limits the
exposure of the paper to moisture changes that can degrade its performance.
Grain Direction
Grain refers to the alignment of the paper fibers in a sheet of paper. Grain is either long grain, running the
length of the paper, or short grain, running the width of the paper.
For 60 to 90 g/m2 (16 to 24 lb bond) paper, grain long fibers are recommended. For papers heavier than 90
g/m2 (24 lb bond), grain short is preferred. For the multipurpose feeder, 60 to 90 g/m2 (16 to 24 lb bond)
paper, grain long fibers are recommended.
Fiber Content
Most high-quality xerographic paper is made from 100% chemically pulped wood. This content provides the
paper with a high degree of stability resulting in fewer paper feeding problems and better print quality. Paper
containing fibers such as cotton possess characteristics that can result in degraded paper handling.
Recommended Paper
To ensure the best print quality and feed reliability, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb) xerographic paper. Business papers
designed for general business use may also provide acceptable print quality.
Always print several samples before buying large quantities of any type of print media. When choosing any
print media, consider the weight, fiber content, and color.
Use only paper able to withstand these temperatures without discoloring, bleeding, or releasing hazardous
emissions. Check with the paper manufacturer or vendor to determine whether the paper you have chosen is
acceptable for laser printers.
Unacceptable Paper
The following papers are not recommended for use with the multi-function printer:
Chemically treated papers used to make copies without carbon paper, also known as carbonless
papers, carbonless copy paper (CCP), or no carbon required (NCR) paper
Preprinted papers with chemicals that may contaminate the multi-function printer
Preprinted papers that can be affected by the temperature in the printer fuser
Preprinted papers that require a registration (the precise print location on the page) greater than ±
0.09 in., such as optical character recognition (OCR) forms
Coated papers (erasable bond), synthetic papers, thermal papers
Rough-edged, rough or heavily textured surface papers or curled papers
Recycled papers containing more than 25% post-consumer waste that do not meet DIN 19 309
Recycled paper having a weight less than 60 g/m2 (16 lb)
Multiple-part forms or documents
Selecting Paper
Proper paper loading helps prevent jams and ensures trouble-free printing.
To help avoid jams or poor print quality:
Always use new, undamaged paper.
Before loading paper, know the recommended print side of the paper you are using. This information is
usually indicated on the paper package.
Do not use paper that you have cut or trimmed yourself.
Do not mix print media sizes, weights, or types in the same source; mixing results in jams.
Do not use coated papers.
Remember to change the paper size setting when you use a source that does not support auto size
sensing.
Do not remove trays while a job is printing or Busy is displayed on the operator panel.
Make sure the paper is properly loaded in the source.
Flex paper back and forth. Do not fold or crease the paper. Straighten the edges on a level surface.
Selecting Preprinted Forms and Letterhead
Use the following guidelines when selecting preprinted forms and letterhead paper for the multi-function
printer:
Use long grain papers for best results.
Use only forms and letterhead printed using an offset lithographic or engraved printing process.
Choose papers that absorb ink, but do not bleed.
Avoid papers with rough or heavily textured surfaces.
Use papers printed with heat-resistant inks designed for use in xerographic copiers. The ink must withstand
temperatures of 225° C (437° F) without melting or releasing hazardous emissions. Use inks that are not
affected by the resin in toner or the silicone in the fuser. Inks that are oxidation-set or oil-based should meet
these requirements; latex inks might not. If you are in doubt, contact your paper supplier.
Preprinted papers such as letterhead must be able to withstand temperatures up to 225° C (437° F) without
melting or releasing hazardous emissions.
Printing on Letterhead
Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine whether the preprinted letterhead you have chosen is
acceptable for laser printers.
Page orientation is important when printing on letterhead. Use the following table for help when loading
letterhead in the print media sources.

Selecting Prepunched Paper
Prepunched paper brands can differ in the number and placement of holes and in manufacturing techniques.
Use the following guidelines to select and use prepunched paper:
Test paper from several manufacturers before ordering and using large quantities of pre-punched
paper.
Paper should be punched at the paper manufacturer and not drilled into paper already packaged in a
ream. Drilled paper can cause jams when multiple sheets feed through the multi-function printer.
Prepunched paper can include more paper dust than standard paper. Your multi-function printer may
require more frequent cleaning and feed reliability may not be as good as that of standard paper.
Transparencies
Try a sample of any transparencies you are considering using with the multi-function printer before buying
large quantities:
Use transparencies designed specifically for laser printers. Transparencies must be able to withstand
temperatures of 205° C (401° F) without melting, discoloring, offsetting or releasing hazardous
emissions.
Avoid getting fingerprints on the transparencies, which can cause poor print quality.
Before loading transparencies, fan the stack to prevent sheets from sticking together.
Load one transparency in the manual feeder.
Selecting Transparencies
The multi-function printer can print directly on transparencies designed for use in laser printers. Print quality
and durability depend on the transparency used. Always print samples on the transparencies you are
considering before buying large quantities.
Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine whether your transparencies are compatible with laser
printers that heat transparencies to 205° C (401° F). Use only transparencies that are able to withstand
these temperatures without melting, discoloring, offsetting, or releasing hazardous emissions.
Envelopes
You can load one envelope at a time in the manual feeder. Try a sample of any envelopes you are
considering using with the multi-function printer before buying large quantities. See page 64 for instructions
on loading an envelope.
When printing on envelopes:
To achieve the best possible print quality, use only high-quality envelopes that are designed for use in
laser printers.
For best performance, use envelopes made from 75 g/m2 (20 lb bond) paper. You can use up to 90
g/m2 (24 lb bond) weight for the manual feeder as long as the cotton content is 25 percent or less.
Use only new, undamaged envelopes.
For best performance and to minimize jams, do not use envelopes that:
Have excessive curl or twist
Are stuck together or damaged in any way
Contain windows, holes, perforations, cutouts or embossing
Use metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars
Have an interlocking design
Have postage stamps attached
Have any exposed adhesive when the flap is in the sealed or closed position
Have nicked edges or bent corners
Have rough, cockle, or laid finishes
Use envelopes that can withstand temperatures of 205° C (401° F) without sealing, excessive curling,
wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions. If you have any doubts about the envelopes you are
considering using, check with the envelope supplier.
Adjust the width guide to fit the width of the envelopes.
Load an envelope with the flap side down and with the stamp area on the top left side. The end of the
envelope with the stamp area enters the manual feeder first.
See "Using the Manual Feeder" on page 64 for instructions on loading an envelope.
A combination of high humidity (over 60%) and the high printing temperatures may seal the
envelopes.
Labels
Your multi-function printer can print on many labels designed for use with laser printers. These labels are
supplied in letter size, A4 size, and legal size sheets. Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and
topcoats must be able to withstand temperatures of 205° C (401° F) and pressure of 25 pounds per square
inch (psi). You can load one label sheet at a time in the manual feeder.
Try a sample of any label you are considering using with the multi-function printer before purchasing a large
quantity:
Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam.
Partial sheets also contaminate your multi-function printer and your cartridge with adhesive, and could
void your multi-function printer and cartridge warranties.
Use labels that can withstand temperatures of 205° C (401° F) without sealing, excessive curling,
wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.
Do not print within 0.04 in. (1 mm) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die-cuts of
the label.
Do not use label sheets that have adhesive to the edge of the sheet. We recommend zone coating of
the adhesive at least 0.04 in. (1 mm) away from edges. Adhesive material contaminates your multifunction printer and could void your warranty.
If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, a 0.125 in. (3 mm) strip should be removed on the
leading and driver edge, and a non-oozing adhesive should be used.
Remove a 0.125 in. (3 mm) strip from the leading edge to prevent labels from peeling inside the multifunction printer.
Portrait orientation is preferred, especially when printing bar codes.
Do not use labels that have exposed adhesive.
Card Stock
Card stock is single ply, and has a large array of properties, such as the moisture content, thickness, and
texture, that can significantly affect print quality. See "Identifying Print Media Sources and Specifications" on
page 57 for information on the preferred weight for the grain direction of print media.
Try a sample of any card stock you are considering using with the multi-function printer before purchasing a
large quantity:
Be aware that preprinting, perforation, and creasing can significantly affect the print quality and cause
print media handling or jamming problems.
Avoid using card stock that may release hazardous emissions when heated.
Do not use preprinted card stock manufactured with chemicals that may contaminate the multifunction printer. Preprinting introduces semi-liquid and volatile components into the multi-function
printer.
We recommend the use of grain long card stock.
Storing Print Media
Use the following guidelines for proper print media storage. These help avoid print media feeding problems
and uneven print quality:
For best results, store print media in an environment where the temperature is approximately 21° C
(70° F) and the relative humidity is 40%.
Store cartons of print media on a pallet or shelf, rather than directly on the floor.
If you store individual packages of print media out of the original carton, make sure they rest on a flat
surface so the edges do not buckle or curl.
Do not place anything on top of the print media packages.
Identifying Print Media Sources and Specifications
The following tables provide information on standard and optional sources, including the print media sizes
you can select from the paper size menu and supported weights.

Selecting an Output Location
The multi-function printer has two output locations; the front output tray (face down) and the rear output
slot (face up).
To use the front output tray, make sure that the rear cover is closed. To use the rear output slot, open the
cover.
NOTE: If paper coming out of the front output tray has problems, such as excessive curl, try printing
to the rear output slot.
NOTE: To avoid paper jams, do not open or close the rear cover while the multi-function printer is
printing.
Printing to the Front Output Tray (Face down)
The front output tray collects printed paper face-down, in correct order. The tray should be used for most
print jobs.
If necessary, expand the paper support extension to keep print media from falling off the front output tray.
Printing to the Rear Output Slot (Face up)
Using the rear output slot, paper comes out of the multi-function printer face up.
Printing from the manual feeder to the rear output slot provides a straight paper path. Using the rear
output slot might improve the output quality with the following:
Envelopes
Labels
Small Custom-sized Paper
Card Stock
Transparencies
To use the rear output slot:
CAUTION: The fusing area at the rear part of the inside of your multi-function printer is hot
when powered. Be careful not to get burned when you access this area.
1. Open the rear cover by pulling it upward.
2. If you do not want to stack the printed pages on the rear output slot, close the rear cover. The pages
stack on the front output tray.
Loading Print Media in the Paper Tray
You can load approximately 250 sheets of plain paper in the standard Tray1 or the optional Tray2. If you
purchased the optional Tray2, see page 191 for installing instructions. For faxing, you can use A4, letter or
legal paper only. For copying or PC printing, you can use many different types and sizes of paper; see
page 57.
Follow these instructions to load print media into the standard Tray1 or optional Tray2. These trays are
1.
loaded the same way.
1. Pull open the paper tray and load paper with the print side face down.
You can load letterhead paper with the design side face down. The top edge of the sheet with the logo
should be placed at the front side of the tray.
For details about loading paper in the paper tray, see page 25.
NOTE: If you experience problems with paper feed, place the paper in the manual feeder.
NOTE: You can load up to 100 sheets of previously printed paper. The printed side should be facing
up with an uncurled edge at the top side. If you experience problems with paper feed, turn the paper
around. Note that the print quality is not guaranteed.
Using the Manual Feeder
Use the manual feeder to print transparencies, labels, envelopes or postcards in addition to making quick
runs of paper types or sizes that are not currently loaded in the paper tray.
Postcards, 3.5 by 5.83 in. (index) cards and other custom-sized materials can be printed with this multifunction printer. The minimum size is 3.0 by 5.0 in. (76 by 127 mm) and the maximum size is 8.5 by 14 in.
(216 by 356 mm).
Acceptable print materials are plain paper with sizes ranging from 3.9 by 5.8 in. (100 by 148 mm) to Legal,
8.5 by 14 in. (216 by 356 mm), the largest size acceptable, and weighing between 16 lb and 32 lb.
NOTE: Always load only the print materials specified in the Specifications on page 200 to avoid paper
jams and print quality problems.
NOTE: Flatten any curl on postcards, envelopes and labels before loading them into the manual
feeder.
To use the manual feeder:
1. Set the paper type and size referring to page 66~67.
2. Load a sheet of the print material with the print side face up into the center of the tray.
CAUTION: Open the rear output slot when printing on transparencies or 3 by 5 in. media to
prevent the damage or jam.
For envelopes, load a sheet with the flap side face down and with the stamp area on the top left side.
The end of the envelope with the stamp area enters the tray first.
NOTICE: Never load envelopes with stamps, clasps, snaps, windows, coated linings, or self-stick adhesives.
These envelopes may severely damage the multi-function printer. The stamp is shown in the
illustration only for placement.
3. Adjust the paper guide to the width of the print material.
The multi-function printer picks up the material from the tray and begins printing.
NOTE: When printing on previously printed paper from the manual feeder, the printed side should be
facing down with an uncurled edge to the multi-function printer. If you experience problems with
paper feed, turn the paper around.
4. Open the rear cover to use the rear output slot.
5. After printing, close the rear cover.

What is an Overlay?
An overlay is text and/or images stored in 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
do not need to load preprinted letterhead paper in the multi-function printer. You need only tell the multifunction 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.
NOTE: The overlay document size must be the same as documents you will print with the overlay. Do

Scanning
Scanning Overview
Scanning From Operator Panel
Scanning Using the Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) Driver
Scanning Overview
Use your Dell Laser Multi-Function Printer 1600n to turn pictures and text into editable images on your
computer. After you install the software from the Drivers and Utilities CD, you can start scanning images
using either the operator panel or applications such as Dell ScanCenter™, PaperPort® and Adobe®
PhotoShop®.
PaperPort is the scanning program provided with your multi-function printer. If you prefer to use another
application, such as Adobe PhotoShop, you must assign the application to the multi-function printer by
selecting it from the list of available applications via the <Select Software> button each time you start
scanning. If you do not assign an application to the <Select Software> button, PaperPort is automatically
selected when you start scanning. Please refer to "Printer Settings Utility" on page 44.
Dell ScanCenter is a PaperPort application that enables you to scan items and send them directly to
PaperPort or other programs on your computer without first running PaperPort. Dell ScanCenter runs as a

Receiving Faxes Using the DRPD Mode
"Distinctive Ring" is a telephone company service which enables a user to use a single telephone line to
answer several different telephone numbers. The particular number someone uses to call you on is identified
by different ringing patterns, which consist of various combinations of long and short ringing sounds.
Using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection feature, your fax machine can "learn" the ring pattern you
designate to be answered by the FAX machine. This ringing pattern will be recognized and answered as a
FAX call, and all other ringing patterns will be forwarded to the extension telephone or answering machine
plugged into the Phone connector ( ) on back of your multi-function printer. You can easily suspend or
change Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection at any time.
Before using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection option, Distinctive Ring service must be installed on your
telephone line by the telephone company. To set up Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection, you will need another
telephone line at your location, or someone available to dial your FAX number from outside.
To set up the DRPD mode:
1. Press <Menu> until "Fax Setup" appears on the top line of the display.

requires several rings to learn the pattern.
6. When the multi-function printer completes learning, the LCD displays "End DRPD Setup".
If the DRPD setup fails, "DRPD Ring Error" appears. Press <Select> when "DRPD Mode" displays and
retry from step 3.
7. To return to Standby mode, press <Cancel>.
When the DRPD feature is set up, the DRPD option is available in the Receive Mode menu. To receive faxes
in the DRPD mode, you need to set the menu to DRPD; see page 118.
NOTE: DRPD must be set up again if you re-assign your fax number, or connect the multi-function
printer to another telephone line.
NOTE: After DRPD has been set up, call your fax number again to verify that the multi-function printer
answers with a fax tone. Then have a call placed to a different number assigned to that same line to
be sure the call is forwarded to the extension telephone or answering machine plugged into the Phone
connector ( )on the back of the multi-function printer.
Receiving Faxes in the Memory
Since your multi-function printer is a multi-tasking device, it can receive faxes while you are making copies
or printing. If you receive a fax while you are copying, printing, or run out of paper or toner, your multifunction printer stores incoming faxes in the memory. Then, as soon as you finish copying, printing, or
resupply the consumables, the multi-function printer automatically prints the fax.

Maintaining the Toner Cartridge
Storing the Toner Cartridge
Store the toner cartridge in the original packaging until you are ready to install it.
Do not store the toner cartridge in:
Temperatures greater than 40° C (104° F)
An environment with extreme changes in humidity or temperature
Direct sunlight
Dusty places
A car for a long period of time
An environment where corrosive gases are present
An environment with salty air
Redistributing Toner
When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life, white streaks or light print occurs. The LCD displays the
warning message, "Toner Low". Gently shake the toner cartridge from side-to-side to distribute the toner
evenly and temporarily improve print quality.
1. Open the front cover.
2. Pull the toner cartridge out and gently shake the cartridge to distribute the toner evenly inside the
cartridge.
NOTE: If toner comes into contact with your clothing, wipe the toner off with a dry cloth and
wash your clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric.
CAUTION: Do not touch the green underside of the toner cartridge. Use the handle on
the cartridge to avoid touching this area.
3. Reinstall the cartridge and close the front cover.
3.
Replacing the Toner Cartridge
When the toner eventually runs out, only blank pages print when a print job or copy job are sent. In that
case the incoming faxes are only saved in the memory and not printed. At this stage, the toner cartridge
needs to be replaced.
NOTE: The Dell Laser Multi-Function Printer 1600n can print received faxes when the toner is empty.
For more information, see page 159.
Order an extra toner cartridge so you will have it on hand when the current cartridge no longer prints
satisfactorily. See page 160 to order toner cartridges.
CAUTION: For best results, use Dell toner cartridges. Print quality and printer reliability are
not guaranteed if you do not use Dell supplies.
To replace the toner cartridge:
1. Open the front cover.
2. Lightly pull the used cartridge straight out.
3. Unpack the new toner cartridge and hold the toner cartridge by the handle and gently shake it from
side-to-side to distribute the toner.
3.
Save the box and the cover for shipping.
NOTE: If toner comes into contact with your clothing, wipe the toner off with a dry cloth and wash
your clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric.
CAUTION: Do not touch the green underside of the toner cartridge. Use the handle on the
cartridge to avoid touching this area.
4. Align the toner cartridge with the labeled arrows, then slide it into the multifunction printer until it
locks firmly into place.
5. Close the front cover.
Cleaning the Drum
If there are streaks or spots on your print, the Organic Photo Conductor (OPC) drum of the toner cartridge
may require cleaning.
1. Before setting the cleaning procedure, make sure that paper is loaded in the paper tray.
2. Press <Menu> on the operator panel until "Maintenance" appears on the top line of the display.
The first available menu item, "Clean Drum", displays on the bottom line.
3. Press <Select> twice.
The display confirms your selection.
The multi-function printer prints out a cleaning page. Toner particles on the drum surface are affixed
to the paper.
4. If the problem remains, repeat steps 1 through 3 until toner particles are not affixed to the paper.
Printing When Toner is Low
When the toner cartridge is nearly empty, the multi-function printer saves the incoming faxes in the memory
without printing them. If you want to print the fax when toner is low, you can set the multi-function printer
to continue printing even though the print quality is not as good.
1. Press <Menu> until "Fax Feature" appears on the display.
2. Press the scroll button (
or
) until "Ignore Toner" appears on the bottom line and press <Select>.
3. Press the Scroll button (
or
) to select "On" or "Off".
Select "On" to continue printing the incoming faxes in the toner low status.
Select "Off" to stop printing when the toner cartridge is nearly empty. This is the default setting.
4. Press <Select> to save the selection.

Printing Quality Problems
The inside of the multi-function printer may be dirty or improper paper loading may reduce the
print quality. See the table below to clear the problem.
Condition
Suggested solutions
Light or faded print
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 page 156. If this does not improve
the print quality, install a new toner cartridge.
The paper may not meet paper specifications; for example, the
paper is too moist or too rough. See "Paper Specifications" on
page 200.
If the entire page is light, the print resolution setting is too low or
the toner save mode is on. Adjust the print resolution and turn the
toner save mode off. See page 77.
A combination of faded or smeared defects may indicate that the
toner cartridge needs cleaning. See "Paper Specifications" on
page 200.
Toner specks
Dropouts
The paper may not meet specifications; for example, the paper is
too moist or too rough. See "Paper Specifications" on page 200.
The transfer roller may be dirty. Clean the inside of your multifunction printer. See page 153.
The paper path may need cleaning. See "Cleaning the Drum" on
page 159.
If faded areas, generally rounded, occur randomly on the page:
A single sheet of paper may be defective. Try reprinting the job.
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 200.
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. Vertical repetitive defects
on the next page.
If these steps do not correct the problems, contact a service
representative.
Vertical lines
If black vertical streaks appear on the page, the drum inside the toner
cartridge has probably been scratched. Install a new toner cartridge.
See "Installing the Toner Cartridge" on page 23.
Gray background
If the amount of background shading becomes unacceptable:
Change to lighter weight pages. See "Paper Specifications" on
page 200.
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 toner cartridge and install a new one. See
"Installing the Toner Cartridge" on page 23.
Toner smear
Vertical repetitive
defects
Clean the inside of the multi-function printer. See page 153.
Check the paper type and quality. See "Paper Specifications" on
page 200.
Remove the toner cartridge and install a new one. See "Installing
the Toner Cartridge" on page 23.
If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of the page at even
intervals:
The toner cartridge may be damaged. If a repetitive mark occurs
on the page, print a cleaning sheet several times to clean the
cartridge; see "Cleaning the Drum" on page 159. After the
printout, if you still have the same problems, install a new toner
cartridge. See "Installing the Toner Cartridge" on page 23.
Parts of the multi-function 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.
Background scatter
Background scatter results from bits of toner distributed on the printed
page.
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 produce hollow images,
the paper stock may be too slick. Try a different paper. See
"Paper Specifications" on page 200.
If characters are improperly formed and produce a wavy effect,
the scanner unit may need service. For service, contact a service
representative.
Page skew
Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
Check the paper type and quality. See "Paper Specifications" on
page 200.
Ensure that the paper or other material is loaded correctly and the
guides are not too tight or too loose against the paper stack.
Curl or wave
Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
Check the paper type and quality. Both high temperatures and
humidity can cause paper curl. See "Paper Specifications" on
page 200.
Turn over the stack of paper in the paper tray. Also try rotating
the paper 180° in the paper tray.

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 performance. The
required condition is 20° C to 24° C (68° F to 75° F), with a relative humidity of 4 percent to 55percent. 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.

Most Dell computers are classified by the Voluntary Control Council for Interference (VCCI) as Class B
information technology equipment (ITE). However, the inclusion of certain options can change the rating of
some configurations to Class A. ITE, including devices, expansion cards, printers, input/output (I/O) devices,
monitors, and so on, integrated into or connected to the computer should match the electromagnetic
environment classification (Class A or B) of the computer.
To determine which classification applies to your computer, examine the regulatory labels/markings located
on the bottom, side, or back panel of your computer. Once you have determined your computer's VCCI
classification, read the appropriate VCCI notice (see "VCCI Class A ITE Regulatory Mark" or "VCCI Class B ITE
Regulatory Mark").

ENERGY STAR® Compliance
Certain configurations of Dell computers comply with the requirements set forth by the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) for energy-efficient computers. If the front panel of your computer bears the
ENERGY STAR® Emblem, your original configuration complies with these requirements and all ENERGY
STAR® power management features of the computer are enabled.
NOTE: Any Dell computer bearing the ENERGY STAR® Emblem is certified to comply with EPA ENERGY
STAR® requirements as configured when shipped by Dell. Any changes you make to this configuration (such
as installing additional expansion cards or drives) may increase the computer's power consumption beyond
the limits set by the EPA's ENERGY STAR® Computers program.
ENERGY STAR® Emblem
The EPA's ENERGY STAR® Computers program is a joint effort between the EPA and computer
manufacturers to reduce air pollution by promoting energy-efficient computer products. The EPA estimates
that use of ENERGY STAR® computer products can save computer users up to two billion dollars annually in
electricity costs. In turn, this reduction in electricity usage can reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, the gas
primarily responsible for the greenhouse effect, and sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides, the primary causes of
acid rain.
You can also help reduce electricity usage and its side effects by turning off your computer when it is not in
use for extended periods of time, particularly at night and on weekends.
