Guidelines for selecting 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.
• Permanent fuser damage, not covered under warranty.
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 62.)
• 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.

on page 62).
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.
Some print media may meet all of the guidelines in this section and
still not produce satisfactory results. This may be the result of the
sheets characteristics, 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 specifications in this user’s guide and that it 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.
The amount of paper put into the tray may differ according to
media type used. (See "Print media specifications" on page 62.)
Using inflammable print media can cause a fire.
Use designated print media (See "Print media specifications" on
page 62).
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.

Envelopes
Transparencies
Successful printing on envelopes depends upon the quality of the
envelopes.
To print on an envelope, the stamp area should be on the left side and the
end of the envelope with the stamp area should enter the printer first in the
center of the tray.
To avoid damaging the machine, use only transparencies designed for laser
printers.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
When selecting envelopes, consider the following factors:
- Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should not exceed
90 g/m2 otherwise, jams may occur.
- Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat with less
than 6 mm ( 0.24 inch.) of 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 about 170°C (338 °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 ( 0.59
inch.) from the edges of the envelope.
Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s seams meet.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
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 on the paper tray for long periods of
time. Dust and dirt may accumulate on them, resulting in spotty printing.
To avoid smudging caused by fingerprints, handle transparencies
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 separate from the backing sheet.
To prevent transparencies from sticking to each other, do not let the
printed sheets stack up as they are begin printed out.
Labels
To avoid damaging the machine, use only labels designed for laser
machines.
•
•
When selecting labels, consider the following factors:
- Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at your
machine’s fusing temperature (about 170°C (338 °F)).
- 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
(0.51 inch.) 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.
Media and tray_ 31

•
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.
surface, and do not allow children near it.
The printed pages stack on the output support, and the output support will
help the printed pages to align. The printer sends printouts to the output tray
by default.
Card stock/Custom-sized paper
Postcards, cards and other custom-sized materials can be printed with this
machine.
•
•
Do not print on media smaller than 76 mm (3.00 inches) wide or 183 mm
(7.20 inches) long.
In software applications, set the margins at least 6.4 mm (0.25 inches)
away from the edges of the material.

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 (about 170°C(338 °F) for 0.1
second.
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.
Using the output support
The surface of the output tray may become hot if you print a large
number of pages at once. Make sure that you do not touch the

Storing the toner cartridge
Tips for moving & storing your machine
1. Turn the machine off and unplug the power cord. Wait for the machine to
cool down.
2. Open the top cover and pull the toner cartridge out. Set it on a clean flat
surface.
Cleaning a machine
If printing quality problems occur or if you use your machine in a dusty
environment, you need to clean your machine regularly to keep the the most
optimum print quality.
•
•
Cleaning the outside of the machine with cleaning materials
containing large amounts of alcohol, solvent, or other strong
substances can discolor or distort the cabinet.
If your machine or the surrounding area is contaminated with
toner, we recommend that you use a cloth or tissue dampened
with water to clean it. If you use a vacuum cleaner, toner blows in
the air and might be harmful if inhaled.
Cleaning the outside
Clean the machine cabinet with a soft, lint-free cloth. Dampen the cloth
slightly with water, but be careful not to let any water drip onto or into the
machine.
Cleaning the inside
During the printing process, paper dust, toner, and dust particles in the air
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.
•
To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it to
light for more than few minutes. Cover it with a piece of paper,
if necessary.
• Do not touch the green surface of the drum located in the toner
cartridge or imaging unit. Use the handle on the cartridge to
avoid touching this area.
3. With a dry, lint-free cloth, wipe away any dust and spilled toner from the
toner cartridge area.
While cleaning the inside of the machine, be careful not to damage
the transfer roller or any other inside parts. Do not use solvents
Maintenance_ 47
such as benzene or thinner to clean. Printing quality problems can
occur and cause damage to the machine.
Tips for moving & storing your machine
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 reduce print quality.
4. Reinsert the toner cartridge and close the top cover.
5. Plug in the power cord and turn the machine on.
Storing the toner cartridge
Toner cartridges contain components that are sensitive to light,
temperature, and humidity. Samsung suggests users follow the
recommendations below 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 it 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 according to the
following guidelines:
• Inside the protective bag from the original package.
• Store lying flat (not standing on end) with the same side facing up as if it
was installed in the machine.
• Do not store consumable in any of the following conditions:
- Temperature greater than 40°C (104°F).
- Humidity range less than 20% and not 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 photoconductive 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.
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 yield 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.

LED blinks red.
If this happens, you can temporarily improve 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.
1. Open the top cover.
When you open the top cover, make sure that the output tray is
closed.
2. Pull the toner cartridge out.
5. Close the top cover. Ensure that the cover is securely closed.
Tips for avoiding paper jams
3. Thoroughly roll the cartridge five or six times to distribute the toner
evenly inside the cartridge.
By selecting the correct media types, most paper jams can be avoided.
When a paper jam occurs, refer to the guidelines below:
• Ensure that the adjustable guides are positioned correctly. (See
"Loading paper in the tray" on page 29.)
• 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.
• Ensure that the recommended side of the print media is facing the right
side. (See "Loading paper in the tray" on page 29.)
•
•
If duplexing, print one sheet at a time using the
. (See "Printing on
both sides of the paper (Manual)" on page 35.)
If you are printing on a special paper, print one sheet at a time using the
. (See "Manual feeding in the tray" on page 29.)
If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash
clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric.
Do not touch the drum in the the toner cartridge or imaging unit.
Use the handle on the cartridge to avoid touching this area.

• 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 the Paper
tab, and set type to Thick. (See "Opening
printing preferences" on page 34.)
• If these steps do not correct the problem,
contact a service representative.

•
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 49.) If this does not improve the print
quality, install a new toner cartridge.
The paper may not meet paper specification;
for example, the paper may be too moist or
rough. (See "Print media specifications" on
page 62.)
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 47.)

Black background
If the amount of background shading becomes
unacceptable:
• Change to a lighter weight paper. (See "Print
media specifications" on page 62.)
• Check the environmental conditions: very
dry conditions 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 58.)
Toner smear
If toner smears on the page:
• Clean the inside of the machine. (See
"Cleaning the inside" on page 47.)
• Check the paper type and quality. (See "Print
media specifications" on page 62.)
• Remove the toner cartridge and then, install
a new one. (See "Replacing the toner
cartridge" on page 58.)
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 58.)
• 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.

Suggested Solutions
Condition
Background scatter results from bits of toner
randomly distributed on the printed page.
• The paper may be too damp. Try printing
with a fresh ream 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 quality through your software
application or in Printing Preferences. (See
"Opening printing preferences" on page 34.)
The toner might not adhere properly to this type
of paper.
• Change the printer option and try again.
Go to the Printing Preferences, click the
Paper tab, and set the paper type to

type of transparency. Because of the
composition of transparencies, some
character voids are normal.
• You may be printing on the wrong surface of
the paper. Remove the paper and turn it

Check if the printer driver is installed in your
system. Open the Unified Driver Configurator
and switch to the Printers tab in Printers
configuration window to look at the list of
available machines. Make sure that your
machine is displayed on the list. If not, open
Add new printer wizard to set up your
device.
Check if the machine 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, press the
Start button. After that normal operation of
the machine should be restored. The
“stopped” status might be activated when
some problems in printing occur.
Check if your application is not using a special
print option such as “-oraw”. If “-oraw” is
specified in the command line parameter,
then remove it to print properly. For Gimp
front-end, select “print” -> “Setup printer” and
edit the command line parameter.
The machine does
not print whole
pages, and output is
printed on half the
page.
It is a known problem that occurs when a color
machine is used on version 8.51 or earlier of
Ghostscript, 64-bit Linux OS, and has been
reported to bugs.ghostscript.com as Ghostscript
Bug 688252. The problem is solved in AFPL
Ghostscript v. 8.52 or above. Download the
latest version of AFPL Ghostscript from
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ghostscript/ and
install it to solve this problem.
I encounter the
“Cannot open port
device file” error
when printing a
document.
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 the port while
printing, the abrupt termination of the driver
keeps the port locked and unavailable for
subsequent print jobs. If this situation occurs, try
to release the port by selecting Release port in
Port configuration window.
