Regulatory Compliance Statements
Wireless Guidance
Low power, Radio LAN type devices (radio frequency (RF) wireless communication devices), operating in the 2.4 GHz/5 GHz Band, may be
present (embedded) in your printer system. The following section is a general overview of considerations while operating a wireless device.
Additional limitations, cautions, and concerns for specific countries are listed in the specific country sections (or country group sections). The
wireless devices in your system are only qualified for use in the countries identified by the Radio Approval Marks on the system rating label. If
the country you will be using the wireless device in, is not listed, contact your local Radio Approval agency for requirements. Wireless devices
are closely regulated and use may not be allowed.
The power output of the wireless device or devices that may be embedded in your printer is well below the RF exposure limits as known at this
time. Because the wireless devices (which may be embedded into your printer) emit less energy than is allowed in radio frequency safety
standards and recommendations, manufacturer believes these devices are safe for use. Regardless of the power levels, care should be taken
to minimize human contact during normal operation.
As a general guideline, a separation of 20 cm (8 inches) between the wireless device and the body, for use of a wireless device near the body
(this does not include extremities) is typical. This device should be used more than 20 cm (8 inches) from the body when wireless devices are
on and transmitting.
This transmitter must not be collocated or operation in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
Some circumstances require restrictions on wireless devices. Examples of common restrictions are listed below:
Radio frequency wireless communication can interfere with equipment on commercial aircraft. Current aviation regulations
require wireless devices to be turned off while traveling in an airplane. IEEE 802.11 (also known as wireless Ethernet) and
Bluetooth communication devices are examples of devices that provide wireless communication.
In environments where the risk of interference to other devices or services is harmful or perceived as harmful, the option to use a
wireless device may be restricted or eliminated. Airports, Hospitals, and Oxygen or flammable gas laden atmospheres are limited
examples where use of wireless devices may be restricted or eliminated. When in environments where you are uncertain of the
sanction to use wireless devices, ask the applicable authority for authorization prior to use or turning on the wireless device.
Every country has different restrictions on the use of wireless devices. Since your system is equipped with a wireless device,
when traveling between countries with your system, check with the local Radio Approval authorities prior to any move or trip for
any restrictions on the use of a wireless device in the destination country.
If your system came equipped with an internal embedded wireless device, do not operate the wireless device unless all covers
and shields are in place and the system is fully assembled.
Wireless devices are not user serviceable. Do not modify them in any way. Modification to a wireless device will void the
authorization to use it. Contact manufacturer for service.
Only use drivers approved for the country in which the device will be used. See the manufacturer System Restoration Kit, or
contact manufacturer Technical Support for additional information.

with a USB cable after installing the driver (Windows and
Macintosh operating systems are supported).
•
With a network cable: You can set up a wireless network using the
SyncThru™ Web Service program (see "Using a network cable" on
page 37).
Using the WLAN
Some models may not support this feature.
Before starting, you will need to know the network name (SSID) of your
wireless network and the network key if it is encrypted. This information was
set when the access point (or wireless router) was installed. If you do not
know about your wireless environment, please ask the person who set up
your network.
Wireless network setup
Make sure your machine supports a wireless network. Wireless
network may not be available depending on the model.
After completing the wireless network connection, you need to install a
machine driver to print from an application (see "Installing wired
network connected machine’s driver" on page 28).
Getting started
Understanding your network type
Typically, you can only have one connection between your computer

choose the security manually and apply the settings.
Setup using Windows
Ad hoc mode
This mode does not use an access point. The
wireless computer and wireless machine
communicates directly.
Shortcut to Wireless Setting program without CD: If you have
installed the printer driver once, you can access the Wireless Setting
program without CD. From the Start menu, select Programs or All
Programs > Samsung Printers > your printer driver name >
Wireless Setting Program.

Guidelines to select the print media
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 machine.
Properties, such as weight, composition, grain, and moisture content, are
important factors that affect the machine’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 machine are
described in print media specifications. (See "Print media specifications"
on page 92.)
• 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.

c. If media weight is 60 g/m2 (16 lb bond), select the Thin type.
Changing the tray size
The tray is preset to Letter or A4 size, depending on your country. To
change the size, you need to adjust the paper guides.
1. Push the back plate of the tray outwards completely so that it can extend
the length of the tray.
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 cannot be controlled.
Before purchasing large quantities of print media, ensure that it
meets the requirements specifications in this user’s guide and
meets your output requirements.
Using print media that does not meet these specifications may
cause problems, requiring repairs. Such repairs are not covered by
the warranty or service agreements.
Using inflammable print media can cause a fire.
Use designated print media (See "Print media specifications" on
page 92).
2. Squeeze the paper length guide and slide it to the correct position for the
paper size you are loading, which is marked at the bottom of the tray.
The use of inflammable media or foreign materials left in the printer
may lead to overheating of the unit and, in rare cases may cause a
fire.
The amount of paper put into the tray may differ according to media type
used. (See "Print media specifications" on page 92.)

Multi-purpose tray
3. Load the paper.
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.
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.
Tips on using the multi-purpose tray
•
Load only one type, size and weight of print media at a time in the
multi-purpose tray.
• To prevent paper jams, do not add paper while printing when there is
still paper in the multi-purpose tray. This also applies to other types
of print media.
• Always load the specified print media only to avoid paper jams and
print quality problems. (See "Print media specifications" on page 92.)
• 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.
4. Squeeze the multi-purpose tray paper width guides and adjust them
to the width of the paper. Do not force them too much, or the paper
will bent resulting in a paper jam or skew.
2. Flex or fan the edge of the paper stack to separate the pages before
loading papers.
•
To keep paper with perforated lines from sticking together
when printing, you must fan the sheets before feeding them
into the machine.
When printing the special media, you must follow the
loading guideline. (See "Printing on special media" on
page 45.)
• When papers overlap when printing using Multi-purpose
tray, open tray 1 and remove overlapping papers then try
printing again.
• When paper does not feed well while printing, push the
paper in manually until it starts feeding automatically.
5. When you print a document, set the paper type and size for the
multi-purpose tray.
For information about setting the paper type and size on the control
panel. (See "Setting the paper size and type" on page 47.)
The settings made from the machine driver override the
settings on the control panel.
a) To print in application, open an application and start the
print menu.
b) Open Printing Preferences. (See "Opening printing
preferences" on page 48.)
c) Press the Paper tab in Printing Preferences, and select
an appropriate paper type.

90 g/m2 otherwise, jam 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, nor
damaged.
- Temperature: Use envelopes that are compatible with the heat and
pressure of the machine 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.
1 Acceptable
2 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 machine’s
fusing temperature for 0.1 second. To view the fusing temperature,
check your machine’s specification. (See "General specifications" on
page 91.) 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.
Transparency
To avoid damaging the machine, use only transparencies designed for use
in laser printers.
In case of color printing using transparencies, the picture quality would
be lower than mono printing when the printouts are used on the
overhead projector.
( ●: Included, Blank: Not available)
Envelope
Successful printing on envelopes depends upon the quality of the
envelopes.
To print an envelope, place it flap side up with the stamp area bottom the
top right side.
•
•
•
•
•
•
When selecting envelopes, consider the following factors:
- Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should not exceed
•
•
Transparencies used in the machine must be able to withstand
machine’s fusing temperature.
Place them on a flat surface after removing them from the machine.
Do not leave unused transparencies 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.
Do not use transparencies that separates from the backing sheet.
Media and tray_ 45
•
•
To prevent transparencies from sticking to each other, do not let the
printed sheets stack up as they are begin printed out.
Recommended media: Transparency for color laser printers produced
by Xerox, such as 3R 91331(A4) and 3R 2780(Letter), are
recommended.
Base type transparency (ex. Xerox 3R3117) results in better image and
paper handling quality than paper backed (ex. Xerox 3R3028) or
removable stripe (3R3108) ones.
•
•
•
•
Do not print on 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.

Labels
To avoid damaging the machine, use only labels designed for use in laser
machines.
•
•
•
•
When selecting labels, consider the following factors:
- Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at your
machine’s fusing temperature. Check your machine’s specification to
view the fusing temperature. (See "General specifications" on
page 91.)
- 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.
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 run a sheet of labels through the machine more than once. The
adhesive backing is designed for only a single pass through the
machine.
Do not use labels that are separating from the backing sheet or are
wrinkled, bubbled, or otherwise damaged.

•
Letterhead/ Preprinted paper must be printed with heat-resistant ink that
will not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous emissions when subjected
to the machine’s fusing temperature for 0.1 second. Check your
machine’s specification to view the fusing temperature. (See "General
specifications" on page 91.)
Letterhead/ Preprinted paper ink must be non-flammable and should not
adversely affect machine rollers.
Forms and letterhead should be sealed in a moisture-proof wrapping to
prevent changes during storage.
Before you load letterhead/preprinted paper, verify that the ink on the
paper is dry. During the fusing process, wet ink can come off preprinted
paper, reducing print quality.
Used paper
When loading used paper, printed side should be facing up 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.

the place of letterhead paper. Rather than
using preprinted letterhead, you can create
an overlay containing exactly the 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
machine: just print the letterhead overlay on
your document.
To use a page overlay, you must create a

Cleaning the cabinet of the machine with cleaning materials
containing large amounts of alcohol, solvent, or other strong

If your machine or the surrounding area is contaminated with
toner, we recommend you use cloth or tissue dampened with
water to clean it. If you use a vacuum cleaner, toner blows in the
air and might be harmful to you.
During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles can accumulate
inside the machine. This buildup can cause print quality problems, such as
toner specks or smearing. Cleaning the inside of the machine clears and
reduces these problems.

Do not touch the green surface, the OPC drum or the front of
the print 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. Cover the OPC drum of the print cartridge
with the clean paper to avoid damaging it from the light while
you clean the inside.

5. With a dry, lint-free cloth, wipe away any dust and spilled toner from the
toner cartridge area.
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.
4. Grasp the handles on the print cartridge and pull to remove all the
cartridge from the machine.
6. Locate the long strip of glass (LSU) inside the top of the cartridge
compartment and gently swab the glass to see if dirt turns the white

the control panel (the lower part of the fuser unit). The temperature
of the fuser unit might be high and could damage your skin.
7. Slide the toner cartridge back into the machine.
8. Holding the handle on the paper transfer belt, align it with the slots on
the inside of the front cover.
When you open the front cover and work inside the machine, it is

Use of non-Samsung and refilled toner cartridge
Samsung Electronics does not recommend or approve the use of
non-Samsung brand toner cartridges in your printer including generic, store
brand, refilled, or remanufactured toner cartridges.
Samsung’s printer warranty does not cover damage to the machine
caused by the use of a refilled, remanufactured, or non-Samsung
brand toner cartridge.
Estimated cartridge life
Estimated cartridge life (the life of the toner cartridge yield) depends on the
amount of toner that print jobs require. The actual print-out number may
vary depending on the print density of the pages you print on, operating
environment, printing interval, media type, and/or media size. For example,
if you print a lot of graphics, the consumption of the toner is high and you
may need to change the cartridge more often.
Tips for Moving & storing your machine
10. Close the front cover. Ensure that the cover is securely closed.
If the front cover is not completely closed, the machine will not
operate.
11. Plug in the power cord and turn the machine on.
•
•
When moving the machine, do not tilt or turn it upside down. Otherwise,
the inside of the machine may be contaminated by toner, which can
cause damage to the machine or bad print quality.
When moving the machine, make sure at least two people are holding
the machine securely.
Storing the Toner cartridge
Toner cartridges contain components that are sensitive to light,
temperature, and humidity. Samsung suggests users follow the
recommendations to ensure the optimum performance, highest quality, and
longest life from your new Samsung toner cartridge.
Store this cartridge in the same environment as the printer it will be used in;
this should be in controlled office temperature and humidity conditions. The
toner cartridge should remain in its original, unopened package until
installation – If original packaging is not available, cover the top opening of
the cartridge with paper and store in a dark cabinet.
Opening the cartridge package prior to use dramatically shortens its useful
shelf and operating life. Do not store on the floor. If the toner cartridge is
removed from the printer, always store the cartridge:
• Inside the protective bag from the original package.
• Store lying flat (not standing on end) with the same side facing up as if
they were installed in the machine.
• Do not store consumables in;
- Temperature greater than 40°C (104°F).
- Humidity range less than 20% or greater than 80%.
- An environment with extreme changes in humidity or temperature.
- Direct sunlight or room light.
- Dusty places.
- A car for a long period of time.
- An environment where corrosive gases are present.
- An environment with salty air.
Handling instructions
•
•
•
Do not touch the surface of the photosensitive drum in the cartridge.
Do not expose the cartridge to unnecessary vibrations or shock.
Never manually rotate the drum, especially in the reverse direction; this
can cause internal damage and toner spillage.

Tips for avoiding paper jams
By selecting the correct media types, most paper jams can be avoided.
When a paper jam occurs, refer to the next guidelines.
• Ensure that the adjustable guides are positioned correctly. (See
"Loading paper in the tray" on page 43.)
Do not overload the tray. Ensure that the paper level is below the paper
capacity mark on the inside of the tray.
• Do not remove paper from the tray while your machine is printing.
• Flex, fan, and straighten paper before loading.
• Do not use creased, damp, or highly curled paper.
• Do not mix paper types in a tray.
• Use only recommended print media. (See "Setting the paper size and
type" on page 47.)
• Ensure that the recommended side of the print media is facing up in the
tray, or facing down in the multi-purpose tray.
• If paper jams occur frequently when you print on A5/B5-sized paper:
Load the paper into the tray with the long edge facing the front of the
tray.
If load the paper this way, printing both sides of the paper (duplex) is not
supported.
In the Printing Preferences window, set the page orientation to be
rotated 180 degrees. (See "Opening printing preferences" on page 48.)

Printing quality problems
If the inside of the machine is dirty or paper has been loaded improperly,
there might be a reduction in print quality. See the table below to clear the
problem.
•
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 "Redistributing toner" on
page 68.) If this does not improve the print
quality, install a new toner cartridge.
The paper may not meet paper specifications;
for example, the paper may be too moist or
rough. (See "Print media specifications" on
page 92.)
If the entire page is light, the print resolution
setting is too low or the toner save mode is on.
Adjust the print resolution and turn the toner
save mode off. See the help screen of the
printer driver.
A combination of faded or smeared defects
may indicate that the toner cartridge needs
cleaning. (See "Cleaning the inside" on
page 65.)
The surface of the LSU part inside the machine
may be dirty. (See "Cleaning the inside" on

Suggested Solutions
Condition
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 "Print media
specifications" on page 92.)
• The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing
processes can cause some areas to reject
toner. Try a different kind or brand of paper.
• Change the printer option and try again. Go to
Printing Preferences, click Paper tab, and
set type to Thick. (See "Opening printing
preferences" on page 48.)
• If these steps do not correct the problem,
contact a service representative.
If white spots appear on the page:
• The paper is too rough and a lot of dirt from a
paper falls to the inner devices within the
machine, so the transfer roller may be dirty.
Clean the inside of your machine. (See
"Cleaning the inside" on page 65.).
• The paper path may need cleaning. (See
"Cleaning the inside" on page 65.)
Vertical lines
If black vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The surface (drum part) of the toner cartridge
inside the machine has probably been
scratched. Remove the toner cartridge and
install a new one. (See "Replacing the toner
cartridge" on page 84.)
If white vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The surface of the LSU part inside the
machine may be dirty. (See "Cleaning the
inside" on page 65.)
Color or Black
background
If the amount of background shading becomes
unacceptable:
• Change to a lighter weight paper. (See "Print
media specifications" on page 92.)
• Check the environmental conditions: very dry
conditions (low humidity) or a high level of
humidity (higher than 80% RH) can increase
the amount of background shading.
• Remove the old toner cartridge and, install a
new one. (See "Replacing the toner cartridge"
on page 84.)
Suggested Solutions
Toner smear
If toner smears on the page:
• Clean the inside of the machine. (See
"Cleaning the inside" on page 65.)
• Check the paper type and quality. (See "Print
media specifications" on page 92.)
• Remove the toner cartridge and then, install a
new one. (See "Replacing the toner cartridge"
on page 84.)
Vertical repetitive
defects
If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of
the page at even intervals:
• The toner cartridge may be damaged. If you
still have the same problem, remove the toner
cartridge and, install a new one. (See
"Replacing the toner cartridge" on page 84.)
• Parts of the machine may have toner on them.
If the defects occur on the back of the page,
the problem will likely correct itself after a few
more pages.
• The fusing assembly may be damaged.
Contact a service representative.
Background
scatter
Background scatter results from bits of toner
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 application or
in Printing Preferences. (See "Opening

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 machine.
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.
