Important Precautions and Safety Information

When using this machine, these basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce risk of fire, electric shock, and injury to people:

1 Read and understand all instructions.

2 Use common sense whenever operating electrical appliances.

3 Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the machine and in the literature accompanying the machine.

4 If an operating instruction appears to conflict with safety information, heed the safety information. You may have misunderstood the operating instruction. If you cannot resolve the conflict, contact your sales or service representative for assistance.

5 Unplug the machine from the AC wall socket before cleaning. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners. Use only a damp cloth for cleaning.

6 Do not place the machine on an unstable cart, stand or table. It may fall, causing serious damage.

7 Your machine should never be placed on, near or over a radiator, heater, air conditioner or ventilation duct.

8 Do not allow anything to rest on the power cable. Do not locate your machine where the cords will be abused by persons walking on them.

9 Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords. This can diminish performance, and may result in the risk of fire or electric shock.

10 Do not allow pets to chew on the AC power or PC interface cords.

11 Never push objects of any kind into the machine through case or cabinet openings. They may touch dangerous voltage points, creating a risk of fire or shock. Never spill liquid of any kind onto or into the machine.

12 To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble the machine. Take it to a qualified service technician when repair work is required. Opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltages or other risks. Incorrect reassembly could cause electric shock when the unit is subsequently used.

13 Unplug the machine from the PC and AC wall outlet, and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions:

• When any part of the power cord, plug, or connecting cable is damaged or frayed.

• If liquid has been spilled into the machine.

• If the machine has been exposed to rain or water.

• If the machine does not operate properly after instructions have been followed.

• If the machine has been dropped, or the cabinet appears damaged.

• If the machine exhibits a sudden and distinct change in performance.

14 Adjust only those controls covered by the operating instructions. Improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage, and may require extensive work by a qualified service technician to restore the machine to normal operation.

15 Avoid using this machine during a lightning storm. There may be a remote risk of electric shock from lightning. If possible, unplug the AC power for the duration of the lightning storm.

16 If you continuously print multiple pages, the surface of the output tray may become hot. Be careful not to touch the surface, and keep children away from the surface.

17 The Power cord supplied with your machine should be used for safe operation. If you are using a cord which is longer than 2 m with 110 V machine, then it should be 16 AWG

This chapter will help you understand the types of paper you can use with your printer and how to properly load paper in the different paper trays for the best print quality.

This chapter includes:

Selecting print media

Loading paper

Knowing an output location

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 media, consider the following:

• Desired outcome: The print media you choose should be appropriate for your project.

• Size: You can use any size print media that fits easily within the paper adjusters of the paper tray.

• Weight: Your printer supports print media weights as follows:

- 16 to 43 lb (60 to 163 g/m

2

) for the standard tray and manual tray

- 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 g/m

2

) for the manual duplex printing

• 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.

Notes

• Some print media may meet all of the guidelines in this section and still not produce satisfactory results. This may be the result of improper handling, unacceptable temperature and humidity levels, or other variables over which Samsung has no control.

• Before purchasing large quantities of print media, ensure that it meets the requirements specified in this user’s guide.

Caution

• Using print media that does not meet these specifications may cause problems, requiring repairs. Such repairs are not covered by Samsung’s warranty or service agreements.

Guidelines for selecting and storing print media

When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other print media, keep these guidelines in mind:

• Always use print media that conform with the specifications listed on the next column.

• Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper can cause paper jams and poor print quality.

• For the best print quality, use only high quality copier grade paper specifically recommended for use in laser printers.

• Avoid using the following print media types:

- Paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or a texture that is too smooth or too rough

- Erasable bond paper

- Multi-paged paper

- Synthetic paper and thermally reactive paper

- Carbonless paper and Tracing paper.

• Use of these types of paper could result in paper jams, chemical smells, and damage to your printer.

• Store print media in its ream wrapper until you are ready to use it.

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.

• Store unused print media at temperatures between 15 o

C and 30 o

C

(59 o

F to 86 o

F). The relative humidity should be between 10% and

70%.

• Store unused print media in a moisture-proof wrap, such as a plastic container or bag, to prevent dust and moisture from contaminating your paper.

• Load special print media types one sheet at a time through the manual tray to avoid paper jams.

• To prevent print media, such as transparencies and label sheets, from sticking together, remove them as they print out.

C

AUTION

: If you print 20 envelopes in succession, the surface of the top cover may become hot. Please exercise caution.

Guidelines for special print media

Type

Envelopes

Guidelines

• 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/m

2

(24 lb) or jamming may occur.

- Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat with less than 6 mm

(0.25 inches) 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.

Acceptable

Unacceptable

• 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 of 180° C (356° F) for

0.1 second. 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 (0.6 inches) from the edges of the envelope.

• Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s seams meet.

5.3

<Loading print media>

Type Guidelines

Transparencies • To avoid damaging the printer, use only transparencies designed for use in laser printers.

• Transparencies used in the printer must be able to withstand 180° C (356° F), the printer’s fusing temperature.

• Place them on a flat surface after removing them from the printer.

• Do not leave them 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 them carefully.

• To avoid fading, do not expose printed transparencies to prolonged sunlight.

• Ensure that transparencies are not wrinkled, curled, or have any torn edges.

Labels • 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 180° C (356° F), the printer’s fusing temperature.

- 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 (5 inches) of curl in any direction.

- Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other indications of separation.

• 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 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.

Card stock or custom-sized materials

• Do not print on print media smaller than 76 mm

(3 inches) wide or 127 mm (5 inches) long.

• In the software application, set margins at least

6.4 mm (0.25 inches) away from the edges of the material.

Type

Preprinted paper

Guidelines

• 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 of 180° C (356° F) for 0.1 second.

• 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

Load the print media you use for the majority of your print jobs in the tray.

The tray can hold a maximum of 250 sheets of 75 g/m

2

(20 lb) plain paper.

Using the standard tray

To load paper, open the tray and load paper with the side to be printed on facing up.

You can load letterhead paper with the design side face up. The top edge of the sheet with the logo should be entered into the printer first.

Notes

• If you experience problems with paper feed, place one sheet at a time in the manual tray.

• You can load previously printed paper. The printed side should be facing down with an uncurled edge enter the printer first. If you experience problems with paper feed, turn the paper around. Note that the print quality is not guaranteed.

5.4

<Loading print media>

Using the manual tray

The manual tray can hold special sizes and types of print media, such as transparency, postcard, note card, and envelope. It is useful for single page printing on special print media.

To load paper in the manual tray:

1

Load one sheet of paper with the side to be printed on facing up.

2

Adjust the manual tray paper width guides to the width of the paper.

Do not force too much, or the paper will bend, which could result in a paper jam or skew.

Depending on the print media type you are using, keep the following loading guidelines:

• Envelopes: Flap side down and with the stamp area on the top left side.

• Transparencies: Print side up and the top with the adhesive strip entering the printer first.

• Labels: Print side up and the top short edge entering the printer first.

• Preprinted paper: Design side up and the top edge entering the printer first.

• Card stock: Print side up and the short edge entering the printer first.

• Previously printed paper: Previously printed side down and an uncurled edge entering the printer first.

Note

• For transparency, hold it by the edges and avoid touching the print side. Oils from your fingers can cause print quality problems.

3

When you print a document, set the paper source and type in the software application. See the Software Section.

Tips on using the manual tray

• Load only one sheet of print media at a time in the manual tray.

• To prevent paper jams, do not add paper when there is still paper in the manual tray. This also applies to the standard tray.

• Print media should be loaded face up with the top edge going into the manual tray first and be placed in the center of the tray.

• Always load only the print media specified in page 5.2 to avoid paper

jams and print quality problems.

Using manual feed mode

You can manually load a sheet of print media in the manual tray if you select Manual Feeder in the Source option from the Paper tab when you change print settings to print a document. See the Software

Section. Manually loading paper can be helpful when you want to check the print quality after each page is printed.

Maintaining the toner cartridge

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 cartridge in the same environment as the 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 depends on the amount of toner that print jobs require. When printing text at ISO 19752 5% coverage, a new toner cartridge lasts an average of 3,000 pages. (The original toner cartridge supplied with the printer lasts an average of 1,000 pages.) 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, print media type, and print media size. If you print a lot of graphics, you may need to change the cartridge more often.

Redistributing toner cartridge

When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life span:

• White streaks and light printing occur.

• The Smart Panel program window appears on the computer.

• The Error LED blinks red.

If this happens, you can temporarily reestablish print quality by redistributing the remaining toner in the cartridge. In some cases, white streaks or light printing will still occur even after you have redistributed the toner.

Clearing paper jams

Note

• When removing paper that is jammed in the printer, if possible always pull the paper in the direction that it normally moves so as not to damage internal components. Always pull firmly and evenly; do not jerk the paper. If the paper tears, ensure that all fragments of paper are removed; otherwise a jam will occur again.

When a paper jam occurs, the Error LED lights red. Open and close the front cover. The jammed paper automatically exits the printer.

In the paper feed area

In the standard tray

1

Remove the jammed paper by gently pulling it straight out. Make sure that all of the paper is properly aligned in the standard tray.

If the paper does not move when you pull, or if you do not see the paper in this area, check the fuser area around the toner cartridge.

See page 9.2.

2

Open and close the front cover to resume printing the document from failed pages.

9.1

<Troubleshooting>

In the manual tray

1

Remove the jammed paper in the manual tray by gently pulling it straight out.

<Troubleshooting>

Solving print quality problems

Dirt inside of the printer or improper paper loading may reduce print quality. See the table below to troubleshoot problems.

Condition

Light or faded print

Toner spots

Suggested solutions

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 8.3. If this does not improve 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 page 5.3.

• If the entire page is light, the print resolution setting is too light or toner save mode is on.

Adjust the print resolution and toner save mode in the printer properties. See the

Software Section.

• A combination of faded or smeared defects may indicate that the printer needs cleaning.

See page 8.1.

• The surface of LSU may be dirty. Clean the

LSU. See page 8.2.

• The paper may not meet specifications (for example, the paper is too moist or too rough).

See page 5.3.

• The transfer roller or paper path may be dirty.

See page 8.1.

Dropouts

If generally rounded, faded areas 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 page 5.3.

• The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing processes can cause some areas to reject toner. Try a different kind or brand of paper.

• The toner cartridge may be defective. See

“Vertical repetitive defects” on the next

column.

• If these steps do not correct the problems, contact a service representative.

Condition

Vertical lines

Gray background

Toner smear

Suggested solutions

If black vertical streaks appear on the page:

• The drum inside the toner cartridge has probably been scratched. Install a new toner

cartridge. See page 8.4.

If white vertical streaks appear on the page:

• The surface of the LSU part inside the printer

may be dirty. Clean the LSU. See page 8.2.

If the amount of background shading becomes unacceptable, the procedures below may fix the problem.

• Change to lighter weight pages. See page 5.3.

• Check the printer’s environment; low humidity

(lower than 20% RH) 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 page 8.4.

• Clean the inside of the printer. See page 8.1.

• Check the paper type and quality. See page

5.2.

• Remove the toner cartridge and install a new

one. See page 8.4.

Vertical repetitive defects

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, install a

new toner cartridge. See page 8.4.

• 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.

9.7

<Troubleshooting>

Condition

Background scatter

Misformed characters

Suggested solutions

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 via the printer properties window.

• If characters are improperly formed and producing hollowed images, the paper stock may be too slick. Try a different paper. See

page 5.3.

Condition

Wrinkles or creases

Suggested solutions

• Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.

• Check the paper type and quality. See page

5.2.

• Turn over the stack of paper in the tray. Also try rotating the paper 180° in the tray.

Back of printouts are dirty

• The transfer roller may be dirty. See page 8.1.

• Check for leaking toner. Clean the inside of the printer.

Solid black pages

• The toner cartridge may not be installed properly. Remove the cartridge and reinsert.

• The toner cartridge may be defective and need replacing. Install a new toner cartridge.

• The printer may require repair. Contact a service representative.

Page skew

• Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.

• Check the paper type and quality. See page

5.2.

• Ensure that the paper is loaded correctly and the adjustable 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 temperature and humidity can cause paper

curl. See page 5.2.

• Turn over the stack of paper in the tray. Also try rotating the paper 180° in the tray.

Loose toner

• Clean the inside of the printer.

• Check the paper type and quality. See page

5.2.

• Install a new toner cartridge. See page 8.4.

• If the problem persists, the printer may require repair. Contact a service representative.

Character voids

Character voids are white areas within characters that should be solid black:

• If you are using transparencies, try another type of transparency. Because of the composition of the transparency, some character voids may be normal.

• You may be printing on the wrong surface on the paper. Turn over the paper in the tray.

• The paper may not meet paper specifications.

See page 5.3.

9.8

<Troubleshooting>

Condition

Horizontal stripes

Curl

Suggested solutions

If horizontally aligned black streaks or smears appear:

• The toner cartridge may be installed improperly. Remove the cartridge and reinsert.

• The toner cartridge may be defective. Install a

new toner cartridge. See page 8.4.

• If the problem persists, the printer may require repair. Contact a service representative.

If the printed paper is curled or paper does not feed into the printer:

• Turn over the stack of paper in the tray. Also try rotating the paper 180° in the tray.

An unknown image repetitively appears on a next few sheets or loose toner, light print or contamination occurs.

Your printer is probably being used at an altitude of 2,500 m (8,200 ft) or above.

The high altitude may affect the print quality such as loose toner or light imaging. You can set this option through Printer Settings Utility or

Printer Tab in printer driver’s properties. Refer to the Software Section for details.

Common Windows problems

Condition

“File in Use” message appears during installation.

“Error Writing to

“Illegal Operation” messages appear.

Suggested solutions

Exit all software applications. Remove all software from the StartUp Group, then restart

Windows. Reinstall the printer driver.

• Ensure that the cables are connected correctly and the printer is on.

• If bi-directional communication is not turned on in the driver, it will also cause this message.

Close all other applications, reboot Windows, and try printing again.

Condition

“Fail To Print,” “A printer timeout error occurred,” messages appear.

Suggested solutions

These messages may appear during printing.

Just keep waiting until the printer finishes printing. If the message appears in standby mode or after printing has been completed, check the connection and/or whether an error has occurred.

Note

• Refer to Microsoft Windows 98/Me/NT 4.0/2000/XP(32/64 bit)/

2003 User’s Guide that came with your PC for further information on Windows error messages.

Common PostScript problems

The following situations are PostScript language specific and may occur when several printer languages are being used.

Note

• To receive a printed or screen displayed message when

PostScript errors occur, open the Print Options window and click the desired selection next to the PostScript errors section.

Condition

PostScript file can not be printed.

“Limit Check

Error” message appears.

A PostScript error page prints.

When print a document in

Macintosh with

Acrobat Reader

6.0 or higher, colors print incorrectly.

Possible cause

The PostScript driver may not be installed correctly.

Suggested solutions

• Print a configuration page and verify that the PostScript version is available for printing.

• Install the PostScript driver; to installing the PS printer driver, see the Software

Section.

• If problem consists, contact a service representative.

The print job was too complex.

Print job may not be

PostScript.

You might need to reduce the complexity of the page.

The resolution setting in the printer driver may not be matched with that in Acrobat

Reader.

Make sure that the print job is a

PostScript job. Check to see whether the software application expected a setup or

PostScript header file to be sent to the printer.

Make sure that the resolution setting in your printer driver matches that in Acrobat

Reader.

9.9

<Troubleshooting>

Common Linux problems

Condition

The printer doesn’t print.

I encounter error

“Unable to open mfp port device file!” when printing a document.

Suggested solutions

• 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. Make sure that your machine is displayed on the list. If not, please, invoke Add new printer wizard to set up your device.

• Check if the printer is started. Open Printers configuration and select your machine on the printers list. Look at the description in the Selected printer pane. If its status contains “(stopped)” string, please, 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.

Please 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 mfp port while printing, the abrupt termination of the driver keeps the port locked and therefore unavailable for subsequent print jobs. If this situation occurred, please, try to release the mfp port.

Common Macintosh problems

Condition

The printer does not print a document from

Acrobat Reader.

The document has printed, but the print job has not disappeared from the spooler in Mac

OS 10.3.2.

The printer does not print a document from

Illustrator on IPP printing.

Suggested solutions

Change the Print Method option to Print

as Image when you print from Acrobat

Reader.

Update your Mac OS to OS 10.3.3 or higher.

Change the Data type option in the

Adobe Illustrator print menu to Binary.

Or, you can use Appletalk printing.

Image Mode

The available options are Normal and Text Enhance.

Some printers do not support this feature.

Printer Setting: If you select this option, this feature is determined by the setting you’ve made on the control panel of the printer.

Normal: This setting is for normal documents.

Text Enhance: Image Mode allows the user to enhance printouts.

Darkness

Use this option to lighten or darken your print job.

Some printers do not support this feature.

Normal: This setting is for normal documents.

Light: This setting is for bolder line widths or darker gray-scale images.

Dark: This setting is for finer line width, higher definition in graphics, and lighter gray-scale images.

Toner Save Mode

Selecting this option extends the life of your toner cartridge and reduces your cost per page without a significant reduction in print quality.

Some printers do not support this feature.

Printer Setting: If you select this option, this feature is determined by the setting you’ve made on the control panel of the printer.

On: Select this option to allow the printer to use less toner on each page.

Off: If you don’t need to save toner when printing a document, select this option.

Advanced Options

You can set advanced settings by clicking the Advanced

Options button.

TrueType Options: This option determines what the driver tells the printer about how to image the text in your document.

Select the appropriate setting according to the status of your document.

This option may be available only in

Windows 9x/Me, depending on your particular printer model.

- 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 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.

- 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.

Print All Text To Black: When the Print All Text To 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.

Some printers do not support this feature.

Watermark

You can create a background text image to be printed on each

page of your document. For details, see “Using Watermarks” on page 21.

2

Overlay

Overlays are often used to take the place of preprinted forms and

letterhead paper. For details, see “Using Overlays” on page 22.

3

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 printer driver.

Using Overlays

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 printer. You need only tell the 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.

1

Create or open a document containing text or an image for use in a new page overlay. Position the items exactly as you wish them to appear when printed as an overlay.

2

To save the document as an overlay, access printer

properties. See “Printing a Document” on page 12.

3

Click the Extras tab, and click Edit button in the Overlay section.
