Notes:
• Make sure that you select the Manual Feeder source and the correct paper size
from your software application before starting your print job. See page 2.8.
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 cut-sheet paper only. You cannot use multipart paper.
• Use only high quality, copier grade paper. Avoid paper with embossed
lettering, perforations, or texture that is too smooth or too rough.
• Coloured paper should be of the same high quality as white photocopy
paper. The pigments must withstand the printer’s fusing temperature of
392 oF (200 oC) for 0.1 second without deterioration. Do not use paper
with a coloured coating that was added after the paper was produced.
• Pre-printed forms must be printed with non-flammable, heat-resistant
inks that do not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous emissions when
subject to the printer’s approximately 392 oF (200 oC) fusing temperature
for 0.1 second.
• 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.
• When you choose envelopes, use only well-constructed envelopes with
sharp, and well creased folds.
- DO NOT use envelopes with clasps and snaps.
- DO NOT use envelopes with windows, coated linings, self-stick
adhesives, or other synthetic materials.
- DO NOT use damaged or poorly made envelopes.

Graphics
If performance when rendering complex graphics is
either very slow, or yields unsatisfactory output,
try toggling this setting.
Dither Text and
Dither Line
With each of these checkboxes selected, your
printer gives you accurate grays even if it has to
dither them. You will get exactly what you ask for.
However, small dithered text is difficult to read,
and fine dithered lines appear dashed instead of
solid. With these options off, your printer maps text
and lines to the nearest gray. For black & white
output, grays that are darker than about 50% map
to black; lighter grays map to white. For color,
colors map to the nearest gray.
Large Bitmap
Pattern
When an application sends a bitmap fill pattern
(also called 'pattern brush') to the printer, the
expected, standard size is 8 pixels square. Some
applications are able to send larger patterns. If the
Large Bitmap Pattern checkbox is selected, you
encounter output where your bitmap fills have
repeating pattern anomalies in them, try to turn the
checkbox off.
Scale
Your printer has a process that automatically
enlarges the bitmap fill patterns so that the output
more closely matches the screen. For example, with
the default setting '0', patterns that come from a
VGA system (96x96 logical pixels per inch) are
enlarged three times to (almost) match the 300x300
dpi of a laser printer. If you set the scale to '1', your
printer can handle the brush patterns exactly as
they come from the application's scaling. You can
also force your printer to scale by 2, 3, 4, or more
times by entering larger numbers.

TrueType
If you find a problem with your printer when the

also run into substitution problems. Turning the
TrueType checkbox on speeds up handling of
TrueType fonts by sending them as text. With this
option off, fonts are handled as graphics. This can
be useful if you are printing over a network to a
server that does not have the same typeface you are
using on your workstation PC. Since the data is
sent as graphics, you do not run into font
substitution problems.
If you are printing with characters found in
languages like Japanese or Chinese (also called
'double-byte characters'), the TrueType checkbox
should be off.
Adobe Type
Manager
If you find a problem with your printer when the
document uses typefaces installed in Adobe Type
Manager (ATM) software or TrueType, use this
feature. If you have both font engines, you could
also run into substitution problems. The Adobe
Type Manager checkbox accesses a "back door" to
ATM. Turning this option on uses this back door to
speed up handling of Type 1 PostScript fonts by
handling them as text. With this option turned off,
the fonts are handled as graphics.

Editing images
To enlarge or reduce the image displayed
It may be useful when you need to take a closer look at some parts of the
image, or see the whole image. Select a proper sub menu from the View
menu.
Note: Changing the zoom factoring doesn’t change the image itself; it does only
change the way of view. To change the size of image itself, you should
perform resizing or resampling.
Erasing parts of an image
To erase a part of image, choose the
tool from the toolbox. You can
change the size of the eraser. The erased areas will be replaced with a
selected background colour.
The bottom part of the Image menu contains commands used for
transforming images. All these commands (except of Resize, Resample,
and Crop) work with either a whole image or with a selected region. The
Resize and Resample commands work with the whole image only. The
Crop command works only if a region is selected.
Rotate: Lets you rotate the image or a selected region.
Flip: Flips the image vertical or horizontal.
Shear: Lets you shear (skew) the image by arbitrary angle.
Crop: Lets you cut a part off trim the image.The contents of the selected
part will replace the whole image.
Resize: Lets you resize the image. It works only with the whole image.
Choose new dimensions in the Width and Height fields.
Resample: This function is similar to Resize, but results of the functions
slightly differ. While Resize function simply “stretches” pixels when
enlarging the image, the Resample function performs some kind of
interpolation. This results in more smooth images with anti-aliased colour
transitions.

Transforming images
Changing colour mode
You can change the image’s colour mode using the Color menu. These
commands do not work with regions. They are always applied to the whole
image. The result of the changes will be immediately shown in the preview
area.
Halftone: It makes the image look like simulated grayscales using different
combinations of 1-bit black and white pixels. Because this image type is
only 1-bit, the file size is smaller than grayscale.
Grayscale: It converts the image into a grayscale mode. All the colour
information will be removed from the image, and the image will look
black-and-white.
Color Resolution: It changes the colour depth of an image. Colour depth is
defined as a number of bits per one pixel of image. The more bits are used
to represent one pixel, the more colours you can have in one image. So,
when you reduce the colour depth, the number of available colors is
reduced too.
Note: You can work with an colour image using Samsung ImageThru (by
importing the colour image from an external application), but you cannot scan and
print the colour image because your machine is a black and white scanner and
printer.
Adjusting image attributes
You can adjust a number of image attributes for an image being edited by
using the following submenus from the Color menu.
Brightness: You can make your image look brighter or darker.
Contrast: The contrast value defines how sharp or smooth the transition
between areas of different colour will be. The higher the contrast value, the
more pronounced are the changes of colour.
Hue: Hue is the wavelength of light reflected from or transmitted through
an object. More commonly, hue is identified by the name of colour such as
red, orange, or green. Hue is measured as a location on the standard colour
wheel and is expressed as a degree between 360o and 0o.
Saturation: Saturation, sometimes called chroma, is the strength or purity
of the colour. Saturation represents the amount of gray in proportion to the
hue and is measured as a percentage from 0% (gray) to 100% (fully
saturated). On the standard colour wheel, saturation increases as one
approaches the edge of the wheel; saturation decreases as one approaches
the center.
Gamma Correct: You can adjust the intensity of colors in an image by
changing the gamma constant that is used to map the intensity values.
Invert: The inverted image is similar to photo film negative; all light areas
become dark, dark areas become light, white becomes black, and black
becomes white.
Stretch Intensity: It automatically adjusts the intensity values based on the
3.16 Working with ImageThru
Working within a region of an image
Operations can be applied to a region of an image instead of the whole
image. Region (also called selection) is an area of image that can be used as
target for most operations (with the exception of resizing, rotating and
shearing).
Toolbox contains the buttons to work with regions. You can also use the
Toolbox menu.
Selects a rectangular region. Click on the image and drag. You will
see a marquee rectangle that defines the region.
Selects a freeform region. Click on the image and drag while
holding the mouse button. You will see your region contour
enclosed into a rectangular marquee. This marquee is used for
resizing.
You can cut, copy, and paste regions using the Edit menu.
Working with annotations
In the Edit mode, you can add so-called annotations to the image using the
tools in the toolbox or in the Toolbox menu. Annotations are used for
adding comments and emphasizing parts of an image.
The annotation objects include the following types;
Lets you select an annotation to move, delete, resize, cut, copy, or
paste.
Lets you draw a straight line.
Lets you draw a one-headed or two-headed arrow.
Lets you draw a square.
Lets you draw a rectangle.
Lets you draw a rectangle with rounded corners.
Lets you draw an ellipse.
Working with ImageThru 3.17
Using SmarThru
To change the position of region marquee, place the cursor inside the
marquee and drag. To change the size, place the cursor onto one of the
rectangular marquee handles and drag.
Lets you draw a line consisting of several segments (polyline). Start
clicking in the image where you want the polyline vertices to be
placed. You can also hold the mouse button and draw a freehand
contour. To indicate the last vertex of the polyline, click the right
mouse button.
Lets you draw closed contours consisting of several segments
(polygon).
Lets you create a frame with text fragments. To change the text,
access the text frame properties and enter a new text on the Text
tab.
Lets you create a frame with text fragments. The note object slightly
differs from the text object; while you can set the size of the text
frame, the note frame size is adjusted automatically according to
the entered text.
Lets you emphasize parts of the image to bring attention to them.
This object doesn’t cover the image content; it changes its hue
instead. It is similar to using a text marker on paper.
Each of these objects has a set of properties associated with it. Use
Properties from the Edit menu, or just double-click on the annotation. You
will see a tabbed window with the annotation properties.
You can find details about creating specific types of annotations in the
respective topics of the on-line help.
The annotations are independent objects “floating” above the image.
However, you can merge annotations with the image using Apply
Annotations command from the Image menu. After that, you won’t be
able to edit these annotations.
Applying effects
Effect menu in the Edit mode contains a number of effects that can be
applied to your images. Results of these effects greatly differ - from subtle
changes to incredible transformations.
All the effects can be applied to the whole image or to the selected region
only. If you want to apply the effect only to a region of an image, select the
region before invoking the effects.
Most of effects have several parameters that can be changed. You can see
the result of changing parameters in the preview area of the effect window.

corner of the button will start moving. It indicates that the application is
ready to process your request. You can also select File ➝ Send by ➝ Email or Fax menu to send images by E-mail or fax.
Creating a multipage image
You can create multipage images, i.e. images that contain more than one
page. In fact, each page of such an image is a separate image, but making
them multipage may help you to apply all the operations that can be
applied to several images at once. To create a multipage image, select an
image and drag it on the multipage image. You can distinguish multipage
images by “page curl” at the lower right corner of image thumbnail.
Note: If you want an operation to be performed with all pages, drag the multipage

to read
Problem
Black staining
Possible cause and remedy
• There is a paper quality problem. Use only paper that meets
printer specifications.
• A toner cartridge from another printer has been installed.
Always use the same toner cartridge with the same printer.
Using a cartridge that has already been used in another
printer may not give satisfactory results.
Character voids
• The paper may be too dry. Try printing with a different batch
of paper.
Background scatter
• 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 from the air.
• Printing over uneven surfaces. If printing onto envelopes,
change your printing layout to avoid printing over areas that
have overlapping seams on the reverse side.
Missing characters
• 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 from the air.

Scanning problems
Problem
You cannot scan a document
into memory.
Possible cause and remedy
• Make sure that you load the document to be scanned into
the document tray.
• There may not be enough available memory to store the
document you want to scan.
The unit scans very slowly.
• Graphics are scanned more slowly than text.
• Communication speed becomes slow in scan mode because
a lot of memory is required to analyse and reproduce the
scan image. Set your computer to ECP mode through the
BIOS setting. It will help to increase the speed. For details
on how to set BIOS, refer to the documentation of your
computer.
‘There is no document or
the document is loaded
improperly. Insert the
document properly and try
again’ message appears on
the screen.
‘Scanner is busy receiving or
printing data. When the
current job is completed, try

the screen.
‘Memory is not enough to
save the scan image. Exit all
applications if not required,
then try again after memory
becomes available’ message
appears on the screen.
Insert the document properly and push it down until the
machine grips the document.
Your scanner may be currently used for copying or faxing.
When the current job is completed, try again.
There is not enough memory to save the scan image. Exit all

PC-fax Problems
Problem
After receiving a PC-fax
data, it is not printed
immediately.
Possible Cause and Remedy
Make sure that “Automatically answer for incoming calls
after (rings)” or “Enable manual receiving” options are
enabled. These options should be disabled to print data.
To check for the option status, right-click the SmarThru
engine icon in the right corner of the taskbar, then select
configuration from the pop-up menu. In the SmarThru
configuration dialogue box, select fax gate, then options, and
check the options in the fax gate properties dialogue box.
PC-fax does not work.
• Make sure that the fax service option is enabled. Right-click
the SmarThru engine icon in the right corner of the taskbar,
then select configuration from the pop-up menu. In the
SmarThru configuration dialogue box, select services, then
options, and enable fax gate.
• The fax modem setup is not made properly. To configure
the fax modem, right-click the SmarThru engine icon in the
taskbar, and select configuration from the pop-up menu. In
the SmarThru configuration dialogue box, select fax gate,
then options, and specify the fax gate options.
• Change the modem port not to conflict with other devices.
In Win 3.x/95/98, the modem port is set to COM3 or
COM4, and Win NT 4.0 is COM8.
• PC-fax is not working while the MFP is running for print
jobs. Retry when the current printing is finished.
5.8 Troubleshooting
OCR Problems
Problem
Possible Cause and Remedy
The recognized page
contains many unrecognized
words.
• The original document is scanned with improper brightness
or too low resolution. Adjust the scanning brightness to
medium in your scanning application.
• The original document contains wrong text language. You
can recognize English text only.
• You have set wrong text type. Text type is set in the
AnyPage Lite system automatically. But if you have to
recognize typewritten or matrix printer texts, set the
corresponding text type to increase recognition accuracy. Do
not forget to set the switch back to Auto position if you are
recognising texts, which are neither typed on a typewriter
nor printed on matrix printer in draft mode.
The result of automatic
segmentation is not correct.
In most cases the system analyses text layout successfully. But
if there are mistakes, you can mark blocks manually. See page
4.7.
The system does not load
your image file.
You may be trying to load an image file of a format not
supported in AnyPage Lite.
• AnyPage Lite can load image files in the following formats:
BMP, PCX, DCX, JPEG, TIFF.
• AnyPage Lite can save images in the following formats:
BMP, PCX, JPEG, TIFF.
Scanning is not achieved in
AnyPage Lite.
AnyPage Lite does not offer the scan feature. It provides only
the recognising feature of the scanned image.
