Installing the Multi-function Feeder
The multi-function feeder (MFF) is useful to print a lot of envelopes
or transparencies. The MFF is optional for 16DV printers. It can
hold and deliver 100 sheets of 0.09 mm thick paper or 30 envelopes.
Note that the printer works if the MFF is not installed.
Notice:
When using paper, do not leave the paper in the multi-function
feeder for long time. It may cause waving of paper and dropouts in
printing.
Because the MFF does not have a mechanism that detects the
physical size of paper in use, you must inform the printer of the
paper size. Use the MFF paper size menu to select a paper size which
equals the size of paper loaded in the MFF.
To install the multi-function feeder, follow these steps:
Notice:
Be sure that the printer is turned off before installing or removing
the multi-function feeder.
1. Open the front cover.

PPMENU Enables you to remotely control or configure your
printer’s features from your computer’s screen.
Mark Vision™ :Monitors printer status (status is displayed with text
and graphics), displays optional printer’s features, and cooperates
with printer drivers. It also describes the printer control panel
function by which MarkVision™ allows you to remotely operate
your printer from the printer control panel displayed on your
computer’s screen.
Note that PPMENU is available in Windows 3.1/3.11 or Windows
95 environments and MarkVisionr™ is available in Windows 95 or
Windows NT4.0 environments.
PPMENU
Generally, the printer driver controls the printer. You can also
control the printer using the remote setup utility program called
PPMENU, stored in the attached CD-ROM.
PPMENU allows you to easily change your printer’s features directly
from your computer. You use it to configure your printer to suit the
requirements of your computer, software, and documents to be
printed.
The parameters you can change using PPMENU affect page layout,
font, and printer control. If your software programs have printer
drivers, those printer drivers control the parameters for you.
Therefore, it may not be necessary to change the settings using
PPMENU.
PPMENU needs to be installed only if you will print from DOS or
DOS based applications.
To install PPMENU, see the booklet “Quick Start” enclosed in the
CD-ROM envelope.
For more details and the latest modifications, refer to the
“ReadMe. txt” file concerning PPMENU.

Paper Types and Sizes
This printer can print on a variety of common office papers in
addition to standard photocopier bond. Bond paper can range in
basic weight from 60 to 70 g/m2 (16 to 24 pound) for the paper tray
and from 60 to 105 g/m 2 (16 to 28 pound) for the manual feed slot.
Smooth paper produces the best print quality, but textured papers
usually provide satisfactory results.
The following descriptions also apply to an optional paper tray.
Notice:
When you use thick paper, follow these guidelines:
When you are using thick paper or special paper and find improper
adhering of toner to the paper, turn the thick paper mode on using
the control panel. This mode is invalid for envelopes,
transparencies, and labels.
Turn the mode off when you print on regular paper. Printing
regular paper with this mode on may cause a decrease in print
quality or reliability of the printer.

General Tips
Observe the following tips when handling print media.
l
Do not use paper that is wrinkled or curled.
l
Do not use paper with staples or metal parts.
l
l
User’s Manual
When printing both sides of sheets, we recommend you to use an
optional duplex unit. If your printer has no duplex unit, use the
manual feed slot and remove curls after first printing. Use paper in
60 to 90 g/m2 (16 to 24 pound) weight for the duplex unit and 6 0
to 105 g/m2 (16 to 28 pound) weight for the manual feed slot.
Paper thinner than this weight may be wrinkled thus causing
decrease in print quality.
Two-sided printing is not allowed for transparencies, envelopes,
and labels even if your printer has the duplex unit.
2-23
Handling Paper
Preprinted Sheets
In general, you can safely print on preprinted sheets such as letterhead.
However, letterhead with thermographic (raised) printing, embossing,
or foil stamping may not work well. The forces used to create these
effects (heat and/or pressure) are also used in the printer’s fuser unit.
For this reason, the fuser unit may damage the preprinted image.
Load preprinted paper with the printed side facing down in the paper
tray. When using the manual feed slot, place paper with the printed
side facing up. For printing in portrait orientation, the letterhead
should be at the front of the tray. For landscape orientation, it should
be at the right of the tray. For more information on printing in
different orientations, see the later section of this chapter.
Transparencies
This printer can print on overhead transparency material.
l
We recommend you to set up the rear stacker (or that of the duplex
unit when your printer has the duplex unit) so that transparencies
are ejected straight out the back to minimize curl.
The capacity of the rear stacker is about 20 sheets.
l
l
l
l
2-24
Use materials specially designed for laser printers or photocopiers.
Always feed transparency material from the multi-function feeder
(MFF; standard for 16ADV and option for 16DV). Use the
manual feed slot of the printer if the MFF is removed.
To remove curls from printed transparency materials, use correct
frames or put a weight on them until they lay flat.
Be sure to fan the transparency stack to prevent sheets from
sticking together.
User’s Manual
Handling Paper
Envelopes
This printer prints well on envelopes if you carefully follow these
guidelines:
• Use envelopes made of paper in 75 to 105 g/m2 (20 to 28 pound)
weight. Printing with envelopes made of paper thinner than this
weight may produce wrinkles thus causing decrease in print quality.
• Be sure to set up the rear stacker (or that of the duplex unit when
your printer has the duplex unit) so that envelopes are ejected
straight out the back to minimize curl.
The capacity of the rear stacker is about 20 sheets.
• Use the envelope sizes shown in the preceding table.
• To avoid damage to the printer, never use envelopes with clasps,
snaps, windows, or synthetic materials.
• Feed from the multi-function feeder (MFF; standard for 16ADV
and option for 16DV). Use the manual feed slot of the printer if
the MFF is removed.
• Feed the envelopes with the gummed side of the flaps facing
downward.
• Do not use “encapsulated” adhesives, which seal by pressure alone.
• To avoid jamming, restrict the minimum paper weight to 64 g/m2
( 17 pound).
• To avoid creasing along the edges, use high-quality envelopes with
stiff edges.
• To avoid uneven printing, do not attempt to print on the gummed
overlap areas.
• Be sure to feed or load the envelopes with the envelope centered
against the manual feed slot. Use the guide of the paper sizes.
• Before attempting large-scale printing on envelopes, consult with
your stationery dealer. Also, test the envelopes carefully for
consistent, trouble-free printing.

l
l
l
Be careful to use labels under normal operating conditions. Labels
are sensitive to temperature and humidity.
Use the rear stacker (or that of the duplex unit when your printer
has the duplex unit) so that labels are ejected straight out the back
to minimize curl.
Use only labels without backing sheets exposed in the printable
area. Labels mounted separately on a backing sheet tend to slip,
resulting in crocked print.

Printing on Nonstandard Size Paper and on Envelopes
Most of the control over printing on nonstandard size paper must
come from your software program. Programs handle page size
specifications in many different ways.
This section provides tips on feeding and using non standard paper
with your Fujitsu printer.
Considerations on Paper Size
The following considerations apply:
l
l
For envelopes and other nonstandard paper sizes, use the manual
feed slot.
Using the control panel, select a paper size that is equal to or larger
than the physical size of the nonstandard size paper. Otherwise,
part of the printed image may be cut off
Selecting a paper size larger than the physical paper may result in
data running off the edges of the paper. This can affect print quality
and shorten the life of the print unit. To avoid this problem, adjust
the page setup in your program so the print data falls within the
limits of the physical page and center the paper in the manual feed
slot.

Page Orientation
Figure 3-4 illustrates the two orientations and shows the relationship
between the loaded paper and the resulting printout. This
relationship is important if you want to print on letterhead. In
portrait orientation, place the letterhead toward you and face down
in the paper tray. In landscape orientation, place the letterhead
against the right frame of the tray and face down.

Figure 3-4 Portrait and landscape orientation
When using the manual feed slot, place the paper with its letterhead
facing up. In portrait orientation, insert the paper with its letterhead
away from you. In landscape orientation, insert the paper with its
letterhead on the right hand side.
Some software programs allow you to print both portrait and
landscape information on a single page. The function that allows you
to do this is usually called something like “text rotation.” Consult
your software documentation for information.

Glossary
Application software
A program that performs a particular task on a computer. Examples
are word processing, spreadsheet, and database programs.
Baud
The speed of data transmission measured in bits per second. Baud
rates apply to data transmission through the printer’s serial interface.
Baud is also called baud rate.
For example, 1200 baud is approximately equal to 120 characters per
second.
Bit
A binary digit, or bit, is the smallest unit of information in a
computer’s memory. A bit can have the value 0 or 1, which
represents the OFF and ON state in a computer’s memory. Eight
bits equals one byte.
Bit map
An image representation in which each point in the image is
separately defined. For monochrome images, each point is defined by
a single unit of information. For color images, each point is defined
by several units of information, representing the different color
elements.
The characters produced by a dot matrix printer are a kind of bit
map. Each character image is created by defining the points in the
dot matrix as either on or off.
Example:
User’s Manual
GL-1
Glossary
Bitmapped font
A font in which the character images are defined by bit maps. With
bitmapped fonts, a separate set of definitions is required for each
point size. For example, Times 10 point and Times 12 point are
considered separate fonts. See also Scalable font.
Configuration
A combination of settings that allows your computer and printer to
work together. Some of the necessary settings are in the computer or
application software, while other settings are in the printer. For
example, the interface setting must be set the same in both the
computer and the printer.
Corona wire
A fine wire in the printer that gives a positive charge to the paper.
This charge causes the toner on the drum to transfer to the paper.
Default
A setting automatically used when you or your application software
do not make a selection. The settings in effect when you turn on or
reset the printer are called power-on defaults. See also Factory default.
Density
The darkness of the image as it appears on the page. If the density is
too dark, the small white areas inside letters and numbers will be
filled in. If the density is too light, pinholes appear in black areas.
Print density can be adjusted with the print density dial.
Downloadable font
A font that is transferred (downloaded) to the printer’s memory
when or before it is needed. Before they are transferred,
downloadable fonts are stored on font cards, floppy disks, or the
computer’s hard disk. Downloadable fonts are also called soft fonts.
Emulation
The ability of one printer to understand the command set of another
printer. Emulations may be built into a printer’s memory or may be
supplied on optional plug-in emulation cards or cartridges.
GL-2
User’s Manual
Glossary
Ethernet
A communication hardware for a high-speed network: developed by
Xerox Corporation.
Factory default
The settings that are programmed into a printer at the factory. The
printer uses these settings unless they are replaced by user selected
settings entered from the control panel or through application
software.
Flow control
See Serial protocol.
Font
A complete set of characters and symbols in one size, typeface, and
style. Size refers to the character height, and is usually measured in
points (l/72 inch). Typeface refers to the character design, such as
Courier, Times, or Helvetica. Style refers to the character
appearance, such as Italic or Bold. Typical examples of fonts are 12point Courier Bold, and lo-point Times Italic.
Fuser unit
One of the internal parts of a page printer. The fuser unit bonds the
toner to the paper. It consists of a heat roller and a pressure roller
that the paper passes under after toner has been applied.
Hex dump
A special printout used for troubleshooting. A hex dump shows all
data sent by the computer to the printer, including control
characters. The data in a hex dump is expressed in hexadecimal
format.
Initialization
Resets the printer to its power-on defaults. Initialization clears the
print buffer of any data and places the printer online. See also Reset.
User’s Manual
GL-3
Glossary
Interface
The means by which information is transferred from one part of a
system to another. For example, the cable between the printer and
the computer is an interface.
IS0 symbol set
IS0 stands for “International Organization for Stanardization”. An
IS0 symbol set contains special international characters that replace
the following twelve ASCII characters:
and
IS0 symbols sets are available for most European languages,
Chinese, and Japanese.
LocalTalk
A protocol for an easy AppleTalk that connects devices and
computers in a Macintosh system, developed by Apple Computer.
Margin
The space at the edges of a page in which no printing occurs. There
are four margins: left, right, top, and bottom. In application
software, margins are usually expressed in inches, centimeters, or
points. In printer commands, left and right margins are specified as
columns, while top and bottom margins are specified as lines.
Page printers have a minimum margin, typically of about .2 inch (5
mm), on all four sides, called the nonprint margin. No printing
occurs in this margin. If the application sofware specifies a margin
of 0, actual printing begins at the edge of the nonprint margin. See
also Printable area.
MarkVision
A printer management integrated software which monitors printer
status, displays optional printer’s features, spools print data, and
cooperates with printer drivers. It also displays the virtual printer
control panel to allow remote operation of printers.
Orientation
The direction of print on a page. Printing such that the shorter edges
of the paper are at the top and bottom is called portrait orientation.
GL-4
User’s Manual
Glossary
Printing such that the longer edges of the paper are at the top and
bottom is called landscape orientation.
Example:
Page description language
A set of codes that describe the placement of text and graphics on a
page. Page Control Language (PCL), the language used by HP
LaserJet printers, and Postscript are examples of page description
languages.
Page protect
A printer feature that reserves a block of printer memory exclusively
for text and graphics data. Page protect prevents memory overflow
errors when printing very dense text or complex graphics. However,
page protect also reduces the amount of printer memory available for
downloadable fonts.
Parallel interface
A connection between the computer and printer in which data is
transferred simultaneously through multiple wires. A parallel
interface is faster than a serial interface, but the distance over which
it can send data is limited. The Centronics interface is a type of
parallel interface. See also Serial interface.
Photoconductive drum
The part inside a page printer on which the image is created before it
is transferred to the paper.
Postscript
See Page description language.
User’s Manual
GL-5
Glossary
Precharger wire
A fine wire in the printer’s process cartridge that imparts an electrical
charge to the photoconductive drum. The charge makes the drum
sensitive to light.
Printable area
The area of the physical page in which the printer is able to print.
Page printers have a nonprint margin, typically about .2 inch (5 mm)
wide, at each edge of the paper. The printable area is the space
within these margins. See also Margin.
Example:
Printer driver
A set of instructions in application software that translates formatting
choices into printer commands. When installing the application, the
user identifies the type of printer being used so the application knows
which printer driver to use.
Print unit
A maintenance package consisting of the photoconductive drum,
developing unit, toner, and drum cleaner.
Reset
Clears the print buffer and places the printer online. Unlike
initialization, reset leaves the currently selected settings in effect.
That is, reset does not restore the power-on defaults. See also
Initialization.
GL-6
User’s Manual
Glossary
Resolution
The fineness of the printing. Resolution depends on the number of
dots per inch. High resolution (with more dots) is finer and more
precise than low resolution, which is coarser with rougher edges.
Scalable font
A font capable of printing in any point size. Scalable fonts are stored
on the computer’s hard disk. Each font consists of character
templates that are used by the accompanying font utility software to
create the characters in the desired point size.
Some font utilities create a complete set of characters in the desired
size and send the complete set to the printer. Other utilities create
and send only the individual characters as they are needed, which
conserves printer memory.
Serial interface
A connection between the computer and printer in which data is
transmitted sequentially over a single wire. A serial interface is slower
than a parallel interface, but it can send data over a much greater
distance. The RS-232C interface is a type of serial interface. See ah
Parallel interface.
Serial protocol
A set of rules used by the computer and the printer to regulate the
flow of data between them.
Symbol set
The set of characters used in a font. Most symbol sets contain
standard letters, numbers, and punctuation. Symbol sets differ in the
accented characters, line drawing characters, and special symbols they
contain. ASCII, Roman-8 and PC-8 and examples of symbol sets.
Symbol sets are also called character sets, which is the term usually
used with dot matrix printer fonts. See also ASCII character set; IS0
symbol set.

Toner
Electrically charged carbon particles that adhere to charged areas on
the photoconductive drum to produce an image pattern. The carbon
pattern is transferred to the paper and melted by the fuser unit to
form a permanent image on the paper.
Transfer unit
The part inside a page printer that transfers the image from the
photoconductive drum to the paper.
