Radio Frequency Emissions
FCC Information to the User
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A
digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to
provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is
operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.
Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful
interference in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his
own expense.
Canadian Radio Interference Regulations
This digital apparatus does not exceed the Class A limits for radio noise emissions
from digital apparatus as set out in the interference-causing equipment standard
entitled “Digital Apparatus”, ICES-003 of the Industry and Science Canada.
Cet appareil numérique respecte les limites de bruits radioélectriques applicables aux
appareils numériques de Classe A prescrites dans la norme sur le matériel brouilleur:
“Appareils Numériques”, ICES-003 édictée par l’Industrie et Sciences Canada.
Fax Branding
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 makes it unlawful for any person to
use a computer or other electronic device to send any message via a telephone
facsimile machine unless such message clearly contains in a margin at the top or
bottom of each transmitted page or on the first page of the transmission the following
information:
(1) the date and time of transmission
(2) identification of either business, business entity or individual sending the
message; and
(3) telephone number of either the sending machine, business, business entity or
individual.
Refer to the Facsimile User’s Guide for instructions on how to enter this information
into your product’s memory.
The Telephone Company may make changes in its communications facilities,
equipment operations, or procedures where such action is reasonably required in the
operation of its business and is not inconsistent with the rules and regulations in FCC
Part 68. If such changes can be reasonably expected to render any customer terminal
equipment incompatible with telephone company communications facilities, or
require modification or alteration of such terminal equipment, or otherwise materially
affect its use or performance, the customer shall be given adequate notice in writing,
to allow the customer an opportunity to maintain uninterrupted service.
x
Ringer Equivalence Number
The Ringer Equivalence Number and FCC Registration Number for this product may
be found on the label located on the bottom or rear of the product. In some instances
you may need to provide these numbers to the telephone company.
The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) is a measure of the electrical load placed on
the telephone line, and is useful for determining whether you have “overloaded” the
line. Installing several types of equipment on the same telephone line may result in
problems making and receiving telephone calls, especially ringing when your line is
called. The sum of all Ringer Equivalence Numbers of the equipment on your
telephone line should be less than five in order to assure proper service from the
telephone company. In some cases, a sum of five may not be usable on your line. If
any of your telephone equipment is not operating properly, you should immediately
remove it from your telephone line, as it may cause harm to the telephone network.
WARNING:
FCC Regulations state that changes or modifications to this equipment not expressly
approved by the manufacturer could void the user’s authority to operate this
equipment. In the event that terminal equipment causes harm to the telephone
network, the telephone company should notify the customer that service may be
stopped. However, where prior notice is impractical, the company may temporarily
cease service, providing that they:
a) Promptly notify the customer.
b) Give the customer an opportunity to correct the equipment problem.
c) Inform the customer of the right to bring a complaint to the Federal
Communication Commission pursuant to procedures set out in FCC Rules and
Regulations Subpart E of Part 68.
You should also know that:
• Your product is not designed to be connected to a digital PBX system.
• If you intend to use a computer modem or fax modem on the same phone line as
your product, you may experience transmission and reception problems with all
the equipment. It is recommended that no other equipment, except for a regular
telephone, share the line with your product.
• If your area experiences a high incidence of lightning or power surges, we
recommend that you install surge protectors for both the power and the telephone
lines. Surge protectors can be purchased from your dealer or telephone and
electronic specialty stores.
• When programming emergency numbers and/or making test calls to emergency
numbers, use a non-emergency number to advise the emergency service
dispatcher of your intentions. The dispatcher will give you further instructions on
how to actually test the emergency number.
• This product may not be used on coin service or party lines.
• This product provides magnetic coupling to hearing aids.
• You may safely connect this equipment to the telephone network by means of a
standard modular jack, USOC RJ-11C.

PAPER HANDLING
Paper Guidelines
When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other special
media, keep these guidelines in mind:
• Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper
can cause paper jams and poor print quality.
• Use only high quality copier grade paper. Avoid paper with
embossed lettering, perforations, or texture that is too
smooth or too rough.
• Store paper in its ream wrapper until ready to use. Place
cartons on pallets or shelves, not on the floor. Do not place
heavy objects on top of the paper, whether it is packaged or
unpackaged. Keep it away from moisture, or other conditions
that can cause it to wrinkle or curl.
• During storage, moisture-proof wrap (any plastic container or
bag) should be used to prevent dust and moisture from
contaminating your paper.
• Always use paper and other media that conform with the
specifications listed under “General Specifications” on
page B.2.
• Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp, well creased
folds.
- DO NOT use envelopes with clasps and snaps.
- DO NOT use envelopes with windows, coated lining,
self-adhesive seals, or other synthetic materials.
- DO NOT use damaged or poorly made envelopes.
• It is recommended that you feed special paper types one
sheet at a time.
• Only use the special media recommended for use in laser
printers.
• To prevent special media such as transparencies and label
sheets from sticking together, remove them from the exit tray
as they are printed.
• Place transparencies on a flat surface after removing them
from the machine.
• Do not leave the film in the paper tray for long periods of
time. Dust and dirt may accumulate on them resulting in
spotty printing.
• To avoid smudging caused by fingerprints, handle
transparencies and coated paper carefully.
• To avoid fading, do not expose the printed transparencies to
prolonged sunlight.
PAPER HANDLING
3.3

• Store unused media at temperatures between 59oF and 86oF
(15oC to 30oC). The relative humidity should be between 10%
and 70%.
• Do not load more than 10 sheets of special media into the
Multi-Purpose Tray at a time.
• Verify that your labels’ adhesive material can tolerate fusing
temperature of 200oC (392oF) for 0.1 second.
• Make sure 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 machine components.
• Do not feed a sheet of labels through the machine more than
once. The adhesive backing is designed for one pass through
the machine.
• Do not use labels that are separating from the backing sheet
or are wrinkled, bubbled, or otherwise damaged.
TrayLoading Paper in the Tray
The paper Tray can hold a maximum of 550 sheets of 20lb(75g)
plain paper. For copying or faxing, you can use A4-, letter-, or
legal-size paper only.
To load paper, pull open the paper Tray and place paper with the
side you want to print facing up.
3.4
PAPER HANDLING
You can load letterhead paper with the design side facing up.
The top edge of the sheet with the logo should be placed at the
right side.

For details on loading paper in the Tray, see page 1.17.
After loading paper in the Tray, you need to set the correct paper
size using the control panel buttons. See page 1.20.
NOTES:
• When you print a file from your PC using the paper Tray, make
sure that you select the Paper source and the correct paper size
from your software application before starting your print job.
• If you experience problem with the paper feed, place the paper
in the Multi-Purpose Tray.
• You can load up to 300 sheets
of previously printed paper.
The printed side should be
facing down with the uncurled
edge at the right side. If you
experience problems with the
paper feed, turn the paper
around. Note that the print
quality is not guaranteed.
PAPER HANDLING
3.5
Using the Multi-Purpose Tray
Multi-Purpose Tray is located at the right side of your machine.
It can be closed when you are not using it, making the machine
more compact.
Use the Multi-Purpose Tray 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.
Acceptable print media are plain paper with sizes ranging from
98 x 148 mm (3.9 x 5.8 in.) to Legal 216 x 356 mm (8.5 x 14
in.), the largest size acceptable, and weighing between 16lb and
32lb.
The following table summarizes the print media allowed as well
as their stacking height limit.

Notes:
• Always load only use print media specified in Specifications to
avoid paper jams and print quality problems.
• Do not hit the Multi-Purpose Tray or rest your hands on it;
otherwise the tray may be damaged or detached from the
machine.
• Flatten any curling on postcards, envelopes, and labels before
loading them into the Multi-Purpose Tray.

PAPER HANDLING
To load print media in the Multi-Purpose Tray:
1 Lower the Multi-Purpose Tray, located on the right side of
the machine. Unfold the paper support extension as shown.
Paper support
Multi-Purpose Tray
2 Prepare a stack of paper or envelopes for loading by flexing
or fanning them back and forth. Straighten the edges on a
level surface.
For transparencies, hold the transparencies by the edges
and avoid touching the print side. Oils from your fingers
that are deposited on the transparency can cause print
quality problems. If you are using the transparencies with
paper backing, insert a sheet of plain paper on the tray
before loading transparencies. Doing so prevents paper
jams while feeding.

PRINTING
Read this chapter to learn how to select and load print
media and how to use the print settings.
This topics included in this chapter are:
• Printing a Document
• Printer Settings
• Setting Up the Locally Shared Printer
Printing a Document
This procedure describes the general steps required for printing
from various Windows applications. The exact steps for printing
a document may vary depending on the application program you
are using. Refer to the user’s guide of your software application
for the exact printing procedure.
The following steps describe the typical process to print from
Windows:
1 Ensure that your machine is properly connected to the
computer, the machine is powered on, and there is paper in
the paper tray.
2 Verify that you have installed the Samsung software for
your computer. For details, see “Installing Samsung
Software” on page 2.4.
3 Start the program you are using to create the document,
and create or open the document you want to print.
4 Choose Print or Print Setup from the File menu. Make
sure that Samsung SCX-5x15 Series PCL 6 is selected as
your default printer. Click Properties or Setup if you want
to make any adjustments that are appropriate for printing
your document. For details, see “Printer Settings” on
page 5.3.

6 After making any necessary changes to the printing
parameters, click OK to start the print job.
Printer Settings
You can use the machine with all your Windows 95/98/Me/2000/
XP or Windows NT 4.0 applications. Be sure to set Samsung
SCX-5x15 Series PCL 6 as the default printer for all of your
Windows operations.
Most Windows software applications allow you to make changes
to the printer settings. This includes settings that determine
how a print job looks such as paper size, paper orientation, and
margins. Settings made in the application to create the
document will usually override settings made in the printer
driver.
NOTE: You do not need to use any of the control panel buttons to
use the machine as a PC printer. For example, if you want to adjust
the printing contrast you do not have to press Contrast on the
control panel. The control panel buttons are used primarily for
copying.

MAINTENANCE
Expected Cartridge Life
The life of your toner cartridge depends on the amount of toner
used in each print job. For instance, when you print a typical
business letter with about 5% page coverage, you can expect a
toner cartridge life of approximately 6,000 pages. The actual
number may vary according to the print density of the page you
print. If you print a lot of graphics, you may need to change the
cartridge more often.
Replacing the Toner Cartridge
When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life, white streaks
or light copy will occur. The LCD displays a warning message
“TONER LOW.” You can temporarily re-establish the print quality
