Print Media

Information

Selecting Print Media

One of the most important things you can do to assure the best possible print quality from your printer is to select the correct paper. Your printer produces letter quality output on most plain bond papers, including cotton bond and photocopying papers; it does not require special papers.

However, the print quality varies with different paper types. Be sure to test a small quantity of paper before you purchase a large quantity.

Basic Guidelines

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

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

• Use cut-sheet paper only. You cannot use multipart paper.

• Use only high quality, copier grade paper. Avoid paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or texture that is too smooth or too rough.

• Colored paper should be of the same high quality as white photocopy paper. The pigments must withstand the printer’s fusing temperature of 400 o F (205 o C) for 0.1 second without deterioration. Do not use paper with a colored coating that was added after the paper was produced.

• Preprinted forms must be printed with nonflammable, heat-resistant inks that do not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous emissions when subject to the printer’s approximately 400 o F (205 o C) fusing temperature for 0.1 second.

• Store paper in its ream wrapper until ready to use. Place cartons on pallets or shelves, not on the floor. Do not place heavy objects on top of the paper, whether it is packaged or unpackaged. Keep it away from moisture, or other conditions that can cause it to wrinkle or curl.

4 Print Media Information

Using the MP(Multi-Purpose) Tray

The MP tray is located in the front of your printer. It can be closed when you are not using it, making the printer more compact.

The MP tray can hold several sizes and types of paper, such as transparencies, post cards, note cards, and envelopes. You may also want to use the MP tray for single page print jobs on letterhead, colored paper for use as separator sheets, or other special paper you do not keep in a paper cassette.

You can load approximately 100 sheets of paper, 10 envelopes,

30 transparencies, or 25 paper labels at a time. Print material is loaded face up in the MP tray.

When you print from the MP tray, you must select the paper source from your software application, and then select the paper size and type from the software application for the print material you have loaded.

MP Tray Guidelines

• Load only one size of paper or envelopes at a time in the MP tray.

• To achieve the best possible print quality, use only high-quality print media that is designed for use in laser printers.

• To prevent paper jams, do not add paper when there is still paper in the

MP tray. This applies to other types of print materials, too.

• Print material should be loaded face up with the top of the print material going into the MP tray first.

• Do not place objects on the MP tray. Also avoid pressing down or applying excessive force on it.

Print Media Information 3.

Loading Paper into the MP Tray

1. To open the MP tray, hold both sides of the tray and pull it out toward you.

2. Pull the extender to extend the tray to its full-length position to hold longer paper.

3. Prepare the print material for loading.

For paper and envelopes:

Flex paper or fan envelopes back and forth. Do not fold or crease the paper. Straighten the edges on a level surface.

Note: If envelopes jam while printing, try reducing the number of envelopes in the MP tray.

3.

6 Print Media Information

For transparencies:

Hold the transparencies by the edges and avoid touching the print side.

Fan the stack of transparencies to prevent feeding failures. Be careful not to scratch or leave fingerprints on the print side.

5. Load one type of print material in the MP tray. Do not mix types.

See the following directions to load each type of print material.

Load paper with the left edge of the stack against the left edge of the tray with the print side face up.

• Load envelopes with the flap side down. The stamp area is on the left side. The end of the envelope with the stamp area enters the MP tray first.

Note:

• Do not feed stamped envelopes. The stamp is shown for placement only.

• Never use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows, coated lining, or self-stick adhesives. These envelopes may severely damage the printer.

• Load transparencies or label sheet with a paper backing, load with the paper side down.

Using Printer Utilities

Your ML-6100 CD contains the following utilities, which can be installed when you install the printer drivers:

• Remote Control Panel

• Status Monitor

Note: Remote Control Panel and Status Monitor can be used when the printer is connected via the parallel and USB(Windows 98 only) interface.

To access any of these programs, from Windows 95/98 or NT 4.0: Select

Start ➝ Programs ➝ Samsung 6100 Series Utility .

Remote Control Panel

The Remote Control Panel (RCP) is a program that allows you to set printer-specific settings in the printer. It also allows you to properly set up your printer to work with DOS applications which run inside the

Windows MS-DOS Command Prompt window.

Note: After you change RCP settings, you must send it to the printer by pressing the Send button.

The screen includes the following tabs.

PRINTING

Use this tab to control the following printer features:

• Paper Size sets the paper size.

• Paper Source sets the default paper source.

• Copies sets the number of copies printed for each page.

• Quality sets the printer resolution to either 300 or 600 dpi. The higher the setting, the sharper the clarity of printed characters and graphics.

• Orientation determines how the output is printed on the page.

• Top Margin sets the top margin of the print material.

• Left Margin sets the left margin of the print material.

• Auto CR sets how the printer performs a carriage return.

CONFIG

Use this tab to control the following printer features:

• Power Save determines the length of time the printer waits after a job is printed before it goes to a reduced power state. If the printer is used frequently, select OFF which keeps the printer ready to print with the minimum warm-up time. This uses more electricity to keep the printer warm and ready to print.

• Econo Mode determines the toner quantity the printer should use when printing. If set to ON , the printer conserves toner when printing.

The default value is OFF , which provides 100% usage.

• Auto Continue determines what action the printer should take when a manual feed print job is sent to the printer and there is no paper in the

MP Tray. If set to ON , the printer will pick up the paper from cassette after fifteen seconds. Otherwise, the printer will wait for you to load paper in the MP Tray.

• Jam Recovery determines what action the printer should take when a paper jam occurs. When set to OFF , the printer does not reprint a page that has jammed. When set to ON , the printer keeps the image in memory for a printed page until the printer signals that the page has successfully printed. The printer reprints all jammed pages.

• Altitude helps the printer optimize its output depending on the air pressure of the region. If you are close to sea level, it should be set to

“Low.” If at a high elevation (1,500 m / 5,000 ft or higher), set it to

“High.”

JOB

Use this tab to control the following printer features:

• Timeout determines the amount of time (in seconds) the printer will wait before printing the last page of a print job that does not end with a command to print the page or a formfeed character. Valid range is 0 to

300 seconds .

• Paper Type provides the printer with information about the type of paper to be used for a print job. If you use paper with a weight of more than 42 lb. (90 g/m 2 ), or an envelope, set this to Thick and use the MP

Tray’s manual feed slot. Otherwise use the Normal setting.

• Toner Density determines the overall density of the printed image.

Valid selections are Light , Medium and Dark .

• Image Quality mode makes the printer optimize the print quality to

1200 dpi image quality.

INTERFACE

Use this tab to control the following printer features (when using the serial port only):

• Baud rate (bps) sets the rate at which data is being sent to or from the computer.

• Robust XON sets XON/XOFF pacing (if the handshaking protocol uses

XON/XOFF pacing). When set to ON , the printer sends a continuous stream of XONs to the host computer to indicate that the serial port is ready to receive more data. An XON is sent every second as long as no data is received across the serial port in the last second, the last XON is accepted by the host computer, and the printer is ready to receive data from the serial port.

TEST

Use this tab to control the following printer features:

• Configuration Page prints the configuration sheet. A list of the user default settings, the installed options, and the amount of printer memory available prints.

• Demonstration Page prints the demonstration page. It shows the printer features and specifications.

PCL5e

These settings are used by DOS applications. Be aware that Windows applications will override these settings.

Typeface allows you to select the desired typeface. This setting is ignored when the software application specifies a font.

Symbol Set determines the symbol set. A symbol set is a set of alphabetic and numeric characters, punctuation, and special symbols used when printing with a selected font.

Pitch sets the font pitch (only if you have selected a scalable monospaced font). Pitch refers to the number of fixed-space characters in a horizontal inch of type.

Lines Per Page sets the number of lines that print on each page. The setting can range from 5 to 128 lines per page.

Point Size sets the font point size (only if you have selected a scalable typographic font). Point size refers to the height of the characters in the font. One point equals approximately 1/72 of an inch. You can select point sizes from 1 to 1008 in increments of 0.25 points.

Courier determines the courier font type: Regular or Dark .

Font List prints the font list showing all the fonts available for PCL emulation.

PS II

This will allow printing of the PostScript font list.

• Font List prints the font list showing all the fonts available for

PostScript.

ABOUT

This tab shows the software version and copyright information.

Status Monitor

Status Monitor is a program that runs in the background and automatically displays a message on your computer screen whenever the printer status changes. This utility is available only in Windows 95/98 and 3.1x.

Options

Introduction

Your ML-6100 is a full-featured laser printer that has been optimized to meet most of your printing needs. Recognizing that each user may have different requirements, however, Samsung makes several options available to enhance the printer’s capabilities:

• Serial and LocalTalk ports, which enable your printer to interface with a

Macintosh computer.

• Network I/F card, which enables your printer to interface with a network.

• Option cassette, which extends your printer’s paper handling capacity.

This chapter provides detailed installation instructions for each of these options.

Precautions

DISCONNECT THE POWER CORD:

Never remove the printer control board while the printer is plugged in.

To avoid the possibility of electrical shock, always disconnect the power cord when installing or removing ANY internal or external printer option.

DISCHARGE STATIC ELECTRICITY:

The control board and internal printer options (SIMMs, Serial/LocalTalk or

Network interface) are sensitive to static electricity. Before installing or removing an internal option, discharge static electricity from your body by touching something metal, such as the metal back plate on any device plugged into a grounded power source. If you walk round before finishing the installation, again discharge any static electricity.

Replacing the fitted plug

Important

The mains lead for this machine is fitted with a standard (BS 1363) 13 amp plug and has a 13 amp fuse. When you change or examine the fuse, you must re-fit the correct 13 amp fuse. You then need to replace the fuse cover. If you have lost the fuse cover, do not use the plug until you get another fuse cover from the people from whom you bought the machine.

The 13 amp plug is the most widely used type in the UK and should be suitable.

However, some buildings (mainly old ones) do not have normal 13 amp plug sockets. You need to buy a suitable plug adaptor. Do not remove the moulded plug.

Warning

If you cut off the moulded plug, get rid of it straight away.

You cannot rewire the plug or you may get an electric shock if you put it into a socket.

Important warning: You must earth this machine

The wires in the mains lead have the following colour code:

Green and Yellow : Earth

Blue : Neutral

Brown : Live

If the wires in the mains lead do not match the colours marked in your plug, do the following:

You must connect the green and yellow wire to the pin marked by the letter ‘E’, or by the safety ‘Earth symbol’ or coloured green and yellow or green.

You must connect the blue wire to the pin which is marked with the letter ‘N’ or coloured black.

You must connect the brown wire to the pin which is marked with the letter

‘L’ or coloured red.

You must have a 13 amp fuse in the plug, adaptor, or at the distribution board.
