If you are copying a page from a book or magazine, lift the scanner
lid until its hinges are caught by the stopper and then close the lid.
If the book or magazine is thicker than 30 mm, start copying with
the lid open.
In the DADF
Using the DADF, you can load up to 50 sheets of paper (75 g/m2, 20 lb
bond) for one job.
When you use the DADF:
• Do not load paper smaller than 148 x 148 mm (5.8 x 5.8 inches) or
larger than 216 x 356 mm (8.5 x 14 inches).
• Do not attempt to load the following types of paper:
- carbon-paper or carbon-backed paper
- coated paper
- onion skin or thin paper
- wrinkled or creased paper
- curled or rolled paper
- torn paper
• Remove all staples and paper clips before loading.
• Ensure that any glue, ink, or correction fluid on the paper is completely
dry before loading.
• Do not load originals that include different sizes or weights of paper.
• Do not load booklets, pamphlets, transparencies, or documents having
other unusual characteristics.
Loading originals and print media | 23

original stack matches the paper size marked on the document input
tray.
SELECTING PRINT MEDIA
You can print on a variety of print media, such as plain paper, envelopes,
labels, and transparencies. Always use print media that meet the guidelines
for use with your printer. Print media that does not meet the guidelines
outlined in this user’s guide may cause the following problems:
• Poor print quality
• Increased paper jams
• Premature wear on the printer.
Properties, such as weight, composition, grain, and moisture content, are
important factors that affect the printer’s performance and the output quality.
When you choose print materials, consider the following:
• The type, size and weight of the print media for your printer are
described later in this section.
• Desired outcome: The print media you choose should be appropriate for
your project.
• Brightness: Some print media are whiter than others and produce
sharper, more vibrant images.
• Surface smoothness: The smoothness of the print media affects how
crisp the printing looks on the paper.
•
•
3. Adjust the document width guides to the paper size.
Dust on the DADF glass may cause black lines on the printout. Always
keep it clean.

Successful printing on envelopes depends upon the
quality of the envelopes. When selecting envelopes,
consider the following factors:
- Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should
not exceed 90 g/m2 or jamming may occur.
- Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should
lie flat with less than 6 mm curl, and should not
contain air.
- Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled,
nicked, or otherwise damaged.
- Temperature: You should use envelopes that are
compatible with the heat and pressure of the
printer during operation.
Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp and
well creased folds.
Do not use stamped envelopes.
Do not use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows,
coated lining, self-adhesive seals, or other synthetic
materials.
Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes.
Be sure the seam at both ends of the envelope
extends all the way to the corner of the envelope.

Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with
more than one flap that folds over to seal must use
adhesives compatible with the printer’s fusing
temperature for 0.1 second. Check your printer’s
specification to view the fusing temperature. See
"Printer specifications" on page 89. The extra flaps
and strips might cause wrinkling, creasing, or jams,
and may even damage the fuser.
For the best print quality, position margins no closer
than 15 mm from the edges of the envelope.
Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s
seams meet.
To avoid damaging the printer, use only labels
designed for use in laser printers.
- When selecting labels, consider the following
factors:
- Adhesives: The adhesive material should be
stable at your printer’s fusing temperature. Check
your printer’s specification to view the fusing
temperature, see "General specifications" on
page 88.
- Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed
backing between them. Labels can peel off sheets
that have spaces between the labels, causing
serious jams.
- Curl: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no
more than 13 mm of curl in any direction.
- Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles,
bubbles, or other indications of separation.
Ensure that there is no exposed adhesive material
between labels. Exposed areas can cause labels to
peel off during printing, which can cause paper
jams. Exposed adhesive can also cause damage to
printer components.
Do not run a sheet of labels through the printer more
than once. The adhesive backing is designed for
only a single pass through the printer.
Do not use labels that are separating from the
backing sheet or are wrinkled, bubbled, or otherwise
damaged.
Do not print on media smaller than 76 mm wide or
356 mm long.
In the software application, set margins at least
6.4 mm away from the edges of the material.

Letterhead must be printed with heat-resistant ink
that will not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous
emissions when subjected to the printer’s fusing
temperature for 0.1 second. Check your printer’s
specification to view the fusing temperature, see
"General specifications" on page 88.
Letterhead ink must be non-flammable and should
not adversely affect printer rollers.
Forms and letterhead should be sealed in a
moisture-proof wrapping to prevent changes during
storage.
Before you load preprinted paper, such as forms
and letterhead, verify that the ink on the paper is
dry. During the fusing process, wet ink can come off
preprinted paper, reducing print quality.

LOADING PAPER
Loading paper in the tray 1 or optional tray
Load the print media you use for the majority of your print jobs in the tray 1.
The tray 1 can hold a maximum of 250 sheets of 75 g/m2 (20 lb bond) plain
paper.
You can purchase an optional tray and attach it below the standard tray to
load an additional 500 sheets of paper (see "Accessories" on page 83).
Using photographic paper or coated paper may cause problems,
requiring repairs. Such repairs are not covered by Dell’s warranty or
service agreements.

1. Pull out the tray and adjust the tray size to the media size you are
loading.
2. Place paper with the side you want to print facing up.
Loading paper in the multi-purpose tray
The multi-purpose tray can hold special sizes and types of print material,
such as postcards, note cards, and envelopes. It is useful for single page
printing on letterhead or colored paper.
Tips on using the multi-purpose tray
•
•
Load only one size of print media at a time in the multi-purpose tray.
To prevent paper jams, do not add paper when there is still paper in
the multi-purpose tray. This also applies to other types of print
media.
• Print media should be loaded face down with the top edge going into
the multi-purpose tray first and be placed in the center of the tray.
• Always load only the specified print media to avoid paper jams and
print quality problems (see "Selecting print media" on page 24).
• Flatten any curl on postcards, envelopes, and labels before loading
them into the multi-purpose tray.
1. Hold the handle of multi-purpose tray and pull it down to open.
1 Full
2 Empty
3. When you print a document, set the paper source and type in the
software application. See Software section for printing from your
computer.
•
•
If you experience problems with paper feed, place one sheet at a
time in the multi-purpose tray.
You can load previously printed paper. The printed side should be
facing down with an uncurled edge at the front. If you experience
problems with paper feed, turn the paper around. Note that print
quality is not guaranteed.
2. Load the paper.
•
•
28 | Loading originals and print media
If you want to load the used paper, place the paper with the
printed side facing down.
If you are using paper, flex or fan the edge of the paper stack
to separate the pages before loading.
3. Squeeze the multi-purpose tray paper width guides and adjust them to
the width of the paper. Do not force too much, or the paper will be bent,
which will result in a paper jam or skew.
ADJUSTING THE OUTPUT SUPPORT
The printed pages stack on the output tray, and the output support will help
the printed pages to align. For the output support to correctly align the
pages, you need to pull it out appropriately depending on the paper size.
1 Output support
2 Extension
Depending on the media type you are using, keep the following
loading guidelines:
• Envelopes: Flap side down and with the stamp area on the
top left side.
• Labels: Print side up and top short edge entering the printer
first.
• Preprinted paper: Design side up with the top edge toward the
printer.
• Card stock: Print side up and the short edge entering the
printer first.
• Previously printed paper: Previously printed side down with
an uncurled edge toward the printer.
•
•
If the output support is incorrectly adjusted, printed pages may be
mis-aligned or fall.
If you continuously print many pages, the surface of the output tray
may become hot. Be careful not to touch the surface, and
especially keep out of children’s reach.
For Letter-sized paper
Pull out the output support to the location indicated LTR as shown, and
unfold the extension.
4. When you print a document, set the paper source and type in the
software application. See Software section for printing from your
computer.
The settings made from the printer driver override the settings on
the control panel.
5. After printing, close the multi-purpose tray.
For A4- or Legal-sized paper
Pull out the output support to the location indicated A4, LGL as shown, and
unfold the extension.

Receiving faxes using DRPD mode
This setting may not be available depending on your country. Distinctive
Ring is a telephone company service which enables an user to use a single
telephone line to answer several different telephone numbers. The
particular number someone uses to call you is identified by different ringing
patterns, which consist of various combinations of long and short ringing
sounds. This feature is often used by answering services who answer
telephones for many different clients and need to know which number
someone is calling in on to properly answer the phone.
Using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD) feature, your fax
printer can learn the ring pattern you designate to be answered by the fax
printer. Unless you change it, this ringing pattern will continue to be
recognized and answered as a fax call, and all other ringing patterns will be
forwarded to the extension telephone or answering printer plugged into the
EXT socket. You can easily suspend or change DRPD at any time.
Before using the DRPD option, Distinctive Ring service must be installed on
your telephone line by the telephone company. To set up DRPD, 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:

After DRPD has been set up, call your fax number again to verify
that the 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 printer plugged
into the EXT socket.

MAINTAINING THE CARTRIDGE
Cleaning the scan unit
Keeping the scan unit clean helps ensure the best possible copies. We
suggest that you clean the scan unit at the start of each day and during the
day, as needed.
1. Slightly dampen a soft lint-free cloth or paper towel with water.
2. Open the scanner lid.
3. Wipe the surface of the scanner glass and DADF glass until it is clean
and dry.
Toner cartridge storage
To get the most from the toner cartridge, keep the following guidelines in
mind:
• Do not remove the toner cartridge from its package until ready for use.
• Do not refill the toner cartridge. The printer warranty does not cover
damage caused by using a refilled cartridge.
• Store toner cartridges in the same environment as your printer.
• To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it to light for
more than a few minutes.
Expected cartridge life
The life of the toner cartridge yield depends on the amount of toner that print
jobs require. The actual number may also be different depending on the
print density of the pages you print on, and the number of pages may be
affected by operating environment, printing interval, media type, and media
size. If you print a lot of graphics, you may need to change the cartridge
more often.

Redistributing toner
When a toner is low, faded or light areas may appear. It is possible that
colored images may be printed with incorrect colors due to flawed mixing of
toner colors when one of the colored toner cartridges is low on toner. You
can temporarily improve print quality by redistributing the toner.

REPLACING THE TONER CARTRIDGE
The printer uses four colors and has a different toner cartridge for each one:
yellow (Y), magenta (M), cyan (C), and black (K).
• The status LED and the toner-related message on the display indicates
which each individual toner cartridge should be replaced.
• Incoming faxes are saved in memory.
At this stage, the toner cartridge needs to be replaced. Check the type of
toner cartridge for your printer (see "Supplies" on page 83).
1. Turn the printer off, then wait a few minutes for the printer to cool.
2. Using the handle, completely open the front cover.
When you open the front cover and work inside the printer, it is highly
recommend that you remove the paper transfer belt first. Because the
work you do could contaminate the paper transfer belt.
3. Holding both handles on the toner cartridge, thoroughly rock it from side
to side to evenly distribute the toner.
If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry
cloth and wash it in cold water. Hot water sets toner into
fabric.

•
Do not touch the green surface, the OPC drum or the front of
each toner cartridge, with your hands or any other material. Use
the handle on each cartridge in order to avoid touching this area.
Be careful not to scratch the surface of the paper transfer belt.
If you leave the front cover open for more than a few minutes, the
OPC drum can be exposed to light. This will cause damage to the
OPC drum. Close the front cover should the installation need to
be halted for any reason.

• If the entire page is light, the print
resolution setting is too low. Adjust the print
resolution. See the help screen of the
printer driver.
• A combination of faded or smeared defects
may indicate that the toner cartridge needs
cleaning.
• The surface of the LSU part inside the
printer may be dirty. See "Cleaning the

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
"Selecting print media" on page 24.
• The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing
processes can cause some areas to reject

cartridge. After the printout, if you still have
the same problems, remove the toner
cartridge and install a new one. See
"Replacing the toner cartridge" on page 59.
• Parts of the 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 results from bits of toner
randomly 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

Check if the printer driver is installed in your
system. Open Unified Driver configurator
and switch to the Printers tab in Printers
configuration window to look at the list of
available printers. Ensure that your printer is
displayed on the list. If not, invoke Add new
printer wizard to set up your device.
Check if the printer is started. Open Printers
configuration and select your printer on the
printers list. Look at the description in the
Selected printer pane. If its status contains
“(stopped)” string, press the Start button.
After that normal operation of the printer
should be restored. The “stopped” status
might be activated when some problems in
printing occurred. For instance, this could be
an attempt to print document when port is
claimed by a scanning application.
Check if the port is not busy. Since functional
components of MFP (printer and scanner)
share the same I/O interface (port), the
situation of simultaneous access of different
“consumer” application to the same port is
possible. To avoid possible conflicts, only
one of them at a time is allowed to gain
control over the device. The other
“consumer” will encounter “device busy”
response. You should open ports
configuration and select the port assigned to
your printer. In the Selected port pane you
can see if the port is occupied by some other
application. If this is the case, you should
wait for completion of the current job or
should press Release port button, if you are
sure that the present owner is not functioning
properly.
Check if your application has special print
option such as “-oraw”. If “-oraw” is specified
in the command line parameter then remove
it to print properly. For Gimp front-end, select
“print” -> “Setup printer” and edit command
line parameter in the command item.
The CUPS (Common Unix Printing System)
version distributed with SuSE Linux 9.2
(cups-1.1.21) has a problem with ipp

This is a known bug in Ghostscript (until GNU
Ghostscript version 7.05) when the base color

I encounter error
“Cannot open port

printing a document.
Avoid changing print job parameters (via LPR
GUI, for example) while a print job is in
progress. Known versions of CUPS server
break the print job whenever print options are
changed and then try to restart the job from the
beginning. Since Unified Linux Driver locks port
while printing, the abrupt termination of the
driver keeps the port locked and therefore
unavailable for subsequent print jobs. If this
situation occurred, try to release the port.
Check if Gimp Front-end has “Xsane: Device
dialog.” on the “Acquire” menu. If not, you
should install Xsane plug-in for Gimp on the
your computer. You can find Xsane plug-in
package for Gimp on Linux distribution CD or
Gimp home page. For the detail information,
refer to the Help for Linux distribution CD or
Gimp Front-end application.
If you wish to use other kind of scan application,

Appendix | 91
glossary
The following glossary helps you get familiar with the product by
understanding the terminologies commonly used with printing as well
as mentioned in this user's guide.
ADF
An Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is a mechanism that will
automatically feed an original sheet of paper so that the printer can scan
some amount of the paper at once.
AppleTalk
AppleTalk is a proprietary suite of protocols developed by Apple, Inc for
computer networking. It was included in the original Macintosh (1984)
and is now deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP networking.
BIT Depth
DADF
A Duplex Automatic Document Feeder (DADF) is a mechanism that will
automatically feed and flip over an original sheet of paper so that the
printer can scan on both sides of the paper.
Default
The value or setting that is in effect when taking a printer out of its box
state, reset, or initialized.
DHCP
A Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a client-server
networking protocol. A DHCP server provides configuration parameters
specific to the DHCP client host requesting, generally, information
required by the client host to participate on an IP network. DHCP also
provides a mechanism for allocation of IP addresses to client hosts.
A computer graphics term describing the number of bits used to
represent the color of a single pixel in a bitmapped image. Higher color
depth gives a broader range of distinct colors. As the number of bits
increases, the number of possible colors becomes impractically large for
a color map. 1-bit color is commonly called as monochrome or black and
white.
DIMM
BMP
The Domain Name Server (DNS) is a system that stores information
associated with domain names in a distributed database on networks,
such as the Internet.
A bitmapped graphics format used internally by the Microsoft Windows
graphics subsystem (GDI), and used commonly as a simple graphics file
format on that platform.
BOOTP
Bootstrap Protocol. A network protocol used by a network client to
obtain its IP address automatically. This is usually done in the bootstrap
process of computers or operating systems running on them. The
BOOTP servers assign the IP address from a pool of addresses to each
client. BOOTP enables 'diskless workstation' computers to obtain an IP
address prior to loading any advanced operating system.
CCD
Charge Coupled Device (CCD) is a hardware which enables the scan
job. CCD Locking mechanism is also used to hold the CCD module to
prevent any damage when you move the printer.
Collation
Collation is a process of printing a multiple-copy job in sets. When
collation is selected, the device prints an entire set before printing
additional copies.
Control Panel
A control panel is a flat, typically vertical, area where control or
monitoring instruments are displayed. They are typically found in front of
the printer.
Coverage
It is the printing term used for a toner usage measurement on printing.
For example, 5% coverage means that an A4 sided paper has about 5%
image or text on it. So, if the paper or original has complicated images or
lots of text on it, the coverage will be higher and at the same time, a
toner usage will be as much as the coverage.
CSV
Comma Separated Values (CSV). A type of file format, CSV is used to
exchange data between disparate applications. The file format, as it is
used in Microsoft Excel, has become a pseudo standard throughout the
industry, even among non-Microsoft platforms.
92 | Glossary
Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM), a small circuit board that holds
memory. DIMM stores all the data within the printer like printing data,
received fax data.
DNS
Dot Matrix Printer
A dot matrix printer refers to a type of computer printer with a print head
that runs back and forth on the page and prints by impact, striking an
ink-soaked cloth ribbon against the paper, much like a typewriter.
DPI
Dots Per Inch (DPI) is a measurement of resolution that is used for
scanning and printing. Generally, higher DPI results in a higher
resolution, more visible detail in the image, and a larger file size.
DRPD
Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection. Distinctive Ring is a telephone
company service which enables a user to use a single telephone line to
answer several different telephone numbers.
Duplex
A mechanism that will automatically flip over a sheet of paper so that the
printer can print (or scan) on both sides of the paper. A printer equipped
with a Duplex can print double-sided of paper.
Duty Cycle
Duty cycle is the page quantity which does not affect printer
performance for a month. Generally the printer has the lifespan limitation
such as pages per year. The lifespan means the average capacity of
print-outs, usually within the warranty period. For example, if the duty
cycle is 48,000 pages per month assuming 20 working days, a printer
limits 2,400 pages a day.
ECM
Error Correction Mode (ECM) is an optional transmission mode built into
Class 1 fax printers or fax modems. It automatically detects and corrects
errors in the fax transmission process that are sometimes caused by
telephone line noise.
Emulation
Emulation is a technique of one printer obtaining the same results as
another.
An emulator duplicates the functions of one system with a different
system, so that the second system behaves like the first system.
Emulation focuses on exact reproduction of external behavior, which is
in contrast to simulation, which concerns an abstract model of the
system being simulated, often considering its internal state.
Ethernet
Intranet
A private network that uses Internet Protocols, network connectivity, and
possibly the public telecommunication system to securely share part of
an organization's information or operations with its employees.
Sometimes the term refers only to the most visible service, the internal
website.
Ethernet is a frame-based computer networking technology for local
area networks (LANs). It defines wiring and signaling for the physical
layer, and frame formats and protocols for the media access control
(MAC)/data link layer of the OSI model. Ethernet is mostly standardized
as IEEE 802.3. It has become the most widespread LAN technology in
use during the 1990s to the present.
IP address
EtherTalk
The Images Per Minute (IPM) is a way of measuring the speed of a
printer. An IPM rate indicates the number of single-sided sheets a printer
can complete within one minute.
A suite of protocols developed by Apple Computer for computer
networking. It was included in the original Macintosh (1984) and is now
deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP networking.
FDI
Foreign Device Interface (FDI) is a card installed inside the printer to
allow a third party device such as a coin operated device or a card
reader. Those devices allow the pay-for-print service on your printer.
FTP
A File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a commonly used protocol for
exchanging files over any network that supports the TCP/IP protocol
(such as the Internet or an intranet).
Fuser Unit
The part of a laser printer that melts the toner onto the print media. It
consists of a hot roller and a back-up roller. After toner is transferred
onto the paper, the fuser unit applies heat and pressure to ensure that
the toner stays on the paper permanently, which is why paper is warm
when it comes out of a laser printer.
Gateway
A connection between computer networks, or between a computer
network and a telephone line. It is very popular, as it is a computer or a
network that allows access to another computer or network.
Grayscale
A shades of gray that represent light and dark portions of an image
when color images are converted to grayscale; colors are represented
by various shades of gray.
Halftone
An image type that simulates grayscale by varying the number of dots.
Highly colored areas consist of a large number of dots, while lighter
areas consist of a smaller number of dots.

the peripheral (for example, a printer).
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a unique number that devices use in
order to identify and communicate with each other on a network utilizing
the Internet Protocol standard.
IPM
IPP
The Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) defines a standard protocol for
printing as well as managing print jobs, media size, resolution, and so
forth. IPP can be used locally or over the Internet to hundreds of
printers, and also supports access control, authentication, and
encryption, making it a much more capable and secure printing solution
than older ones.
IPX/SPX
IPX/SPX stands for Internet Packet Exchange/Sequenced Packet
Exchange. It is a networking protocol used by the Novell NetWare
operating systems. IPX and SPX both provide connection services
similar to TCP/IP, with the IPX protocol having similarities to IP, and
SPX having similarities to TCP. IPX/SPX was primarily designed for
local area networks (LANs), and is a very efficient protocol for this
purpose (typically its performance exceeds that of TCP/IP on a LAN).
ISO
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an
international standard-setting body composed of representatives from
national standards bodies. It produces world-wide industrial and
commercial standards.
ITU-T
The International Telecommunication Union is an international
organization established to standardize and regulate international radio
and telecommunications. Its main tasks include standardization,
allocation of the radio spectrum, and organizing interconnection
arrangements between different countries to allow international phone
calls. A -T out of ITU-T indicates telecommunication.

A device that modulates a carrier signal to encode digital information,
and also demodulates such a carrier signal to decode transmitted
information.
Pages Per Minute (PPM) is a method of measurement for determining
how fast a printer works, meaning the number of pages a printer can
produce in one minute.
MR
PRN file
Modified Read (MR) is a compression method recommended by ITU-T
T.4. MR encodes the first scanned line using MH. The next line is
compared to the first, the differences determined, and then the
differences are encoded and transmitted.
An interface for a device driver, this allows software to interact with the
device driver using standard input/output system calls, which simplifies
many tasks.
NetWare
A network operating system developed by Novell, Inc. It initially used
cooperative multitasking to run various services on a PC, and the
network protocols were based on the archetypal Xerox XNS stack.

document. This feature is available only when you use
the PCL 6 printer driver.
7
Basic Printing
•
- Download as Outline: When this option is selected, the
driver will download any TrueType fonts that are used in your
document not already stored (resident) on your printer. If,
after printing a document, you find that the fonts did not print
correctly, choose Download as bit image and resubmit your
print job. The Download as bit image setting is often useful
when printing Adobe. This feature is available only
when you use the PCL 6 printer driver.
- Download as Bitmap: When this option is selected, the
driver will download the font data as bitmap images.
Documents with complicated fonts, such as Korean or
Chinese, or various other fonts, will print faster in this
setting.This feature is available only when you use
the PCL 6 printer driver.
- Print as Graphics: When this option is selected, the driver
will download any fonts as graphics. When printing documents
with high graphic content and relatively few TrueType fonts,
printing performance (speed) may be enhanced in this
setting. This feature is available only when you use
the PCL 6 printer driver.
Print all text in black: When the Print all text in black
option is checked, all text in your document prints solid black,
regardless of the color it appears on the screen.
Print All Text To Darken: When the Print All Text To
Darken option is checked, all text in your document is allowed
to print darker than on a normal document.
Grayscale Enhancement: Press the Smart Color tab. It
allows users to preserve the details of nature photos, and
improve contrast and readability among grayscale colors,
when printing color documents in grayscale.
Fine Edge: Press the Smart Color tab. It allows users to
emphasize edges of texts and fine lines for improving
readability and align each color channel registration in color
printing mode.
Other Options Tab
You can select output options for your document. See “Printing
a Document” on page 4 for more information about accessing
the printer properties.

You can create a background text image to be printed on each
page of your document. For details, see “Using Watermarks” on
page 13.
Overlay
Overlays are often used to take the place of preprinted forms and
letterhead paper. For details, see “Using Overlays” on page 14.
Output Options
• Print Subset: You can set the sequence in which the pages
print. Select the print order from the drop-down list.
- Normal (1,2,3): Your printer prints all pages from the first
page to the last page.
- Reverse All Pages (3,2,1): Your printer prints all pages
from the last page to the first page.
- Print Odd Pages: Your printer prints only the odd
numbered pages of the document.
- Print Even Pages: Your printer prints only the even
numbered pages of the document.
• Use Printer Fonts: When Use Printer Fonts is checked, the
printer uses the fonts that are stored in its memory (resident
fonts) to print your document, rather than downloading the
fonts used in your document. Because downloading fonts takes
time, selecting this option can speed up your printing time.
When using Printer fonts, the printer will try to match the fonts
used in your document to those stored in its memory. If,
however, you use fonts in your document that are very different
from those resident in the printer, your printed output will
appear very different from what it looks like on the screen.
This feature is available only when you use the PCL 6

What is an Overlay?
Dear ABC
Regards
WORLD BEST
An overlay is text and/or images stored in the computer’s 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 printer. You can use
your printer to print the letterhead overlay on your document.

Getting Started
The supplied Drivers and Utilities CD provides you with Dell’s
Unified Linux Driver package for using your machine with a
Linux computer.
If the CD-ROM is secondary master and the location to
mount is /mnt/cdrom,
[root@localhost root]#mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt/
cdrom
[root@localhost root]#cd /mnt/cdrom/Linux
[root@localhost root]#./install.sh
Dell’s Unified Linux Driver package contains printer and scanner
drivers, providing the ability to print documents and scan
images. The package also delivers powerful applications for
configuring your machine and further processing of the scanned
documents.
If you still failed to run the Drivers and Utilities CD, type
the followings in sequence:
[root@localhost root]#umount /dev/hdc
[root@localhost root]#mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt/
cdrom
After the driver is installed on your Linux system, the driver
package allows you to monitor a number of machine devices via
fast ECP parallel ports and USB simultaneously.
The acquired documents can then be edited, printed on the
same local or network machine devices, sent by e-mail,
uploaded to an FTP site, or transferred to an external OCR
system.
The Unified Linux Driver package is supplied with a smart and
flexible installation program. You do not need to search for
additional components that might be necessary for the Unified
Linux Driver software: all required packages will be carried onto
your system and installed automatically; this is possible on a
wide set of the most popular Linux clones.

Using the Unified Driver
Configurator
Printers Configuration button
Unified Linux Driver Configurator is a tool primarily intended for
configuring Printer or MFP devices. Since an MFP device
combines the printer and scanner, the Unified Linux Driver
Configurator provides options logically grouped for printer and
scanner functions. There is also a special MFP port option
responsible for the regulation of access to an MFP printer and
scanner via a single I/O channel.
Ports Configuration button
After installing the Unified Linux driver, the Unified Linux Driver
Configurator icon will automatically be created on your desktop.

Sharing Ports Between Printers and Scanners
Your machine may be connected to a host computer via the
parallel port or USB port. Since the MFP device contains more
than one device (printer and scanner), it is necessary to
organize proper access of “consumer” applications to these
devices via the single I/O port.
The Dell Unified Linux Driver package provides an appropriate
port sharing mechanism that is used by Dell printer and
scanner drivers. The drivers address their devices via so-called
MFP ports. The current status of any MFP port can be viewed
via the Ports Configuration. The port sharing prevents you from
accessing one functional block of the MFP device, while another
block is in use.
When you install a new MFP device onto your system, it is
strongly recommended you do this with the assistance of an
Unified Driver Configurator. In this case you will be asked to
choose I/O port for the new device. This choice will provide the
most suitable configuration for MFP’s functionality. For MFP
scanners I/O ports are being chosen by scanner drivers
automatically, so proper settings are applied by default.
