Safety

(FCC) and Safety Information

General

Warning

• To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose this product to rain or any type of moisture.

Caution

• Do not open covers and do not attempt to repair the unit yourself. Refer servicing to qualified personnel.

Power source

Warning

• The power source voltage of this unit is listed on the nameplate. Only plug the unit into an outlet with the proper voltage.When you operate this equipment, the outlet should be near the equipment and accessible.

• To ensure safe operation the AC cord supplied must be inserted into standard three-prong AC outlet which is effectively grounded (earthed) through the normal wiring.

• The fact that the equipment operates satisfactorily does not imply that the power point is grounded(earthed) and that the installation is completely safe.

For your safety, if in any doubt about the effective grounding (earthing) of the power point, consult a qualified electrician.

• If the plug cannot be inserted into the AC outlet, contact a licensed electrician to replace the outlet with a properly grounded (earthed) one. Do not defeat the purpose of the grounding (earthing) plug (ex. do not use a conversion plug).

2

2-3 Setting up the printer

2.

Lower the tray to the operating position.

Installing the toner cartridges

The toner cartridges that are shipped with the printer are starter cartridges. They are installed in exactly the same manner as the optional cartridges; the only difference is that the starter cartridges have less toner. The page life expectancy is

3,000 pages, based on a 5% image area.

N OTE : Save all packing material for shipping purposes.

T O INSTALL THE STARTER CARTRIDGES :

1.

Remove the packaging from the toner cartridge.

2.

Remove the shipping cover from the cartridge.

C AUTION : To avoid possible toner spillage, do not tilt cartridge.

2

2-4 Printer Setup

3.

Open the right side door.

C AUTION : Do not leave the right side door open for more than 1 minute; the imaging unit will be exposed to light and could be damaged.

4.

5.

Repeat steps 1, 2, and 4 for each toner cartridge.

2

2-5 Setting up the printer

6.

When you have installed all the toner cartridges, go to step 7.

7.

Close the right side door.

Loading media

The printer is shipped with one media tray (either Letter Paper or A4 Paper) installed—but it capable of using five different trays as shown in the following table.

Tray:

A4 Paper

A4 Transparency

Letter Paper

Letter Transparency

Legal Paper

Size:

210 mm x 297 mm (8.3" x 11.7")

210 mm x 297 mm (8.3" x 11.7")

216 mm x 279 mm (8.5" x 11")

216 mm x 279 mm (8.5" x 11")

216 mm x 356 mm (8.5" x 14")

N OTE : Make sure that you load the correct media. Each tray is designed and labeled for only paper or transparency. If you load the incorrect media type in a tray, it may cause a jam.

If you have the 2nd cassette feeder installed and you wish to use the automatic cassette-switching feature (for a large print job, for example), make sure that all trays in the printer are the same media type and size.

The transparency tray should only be inserted in the upper or middle tray slots.

2

2-6 Printer Setup

T

O LOAD PAPER OR TRANSPARENCIES

:

1.

Pull the media tray out of the printer.

2.

Remove all packaging materials from inside the media tray; refer to the instruction sheet attached to the tray.

3.

Push down on the metal plate until it clicks, locking it in place.

4.

Fan the media (paper or transparencies), and then tap it on a level surface to avoid media jams or skewed printing.

2

2-7 Setting up the printer

N OTE : To optimize your printer’s performance, always use clean, unused media.

Be careful not to leave fingerprints on the media, which can result in a smudged print.

Reusing media that has been fed through the printer once (for example, after jams) can reduce the life of the consumables and paper path components.

The recommended transparency is 3M CG3700. If the print quality is poor, try printing on the other side.

5.

Place the media in the tray under the hooks. The height of media should not exceed the limit mark on the tray, or it may cause a jam.

N OTE : Load media with the print side down. Most media has instructions recommending the side to be printed first.

Do not mix different types or thicknesses of media in the media tray at one time; this may cause a jam.

6.

Slide the media tray completely into the slot.

Connecting the printer to a computer

Only one PC compatible computer can be directly connected to your printer.

2

2-8 Printer Setup

Using a parallel interface cable

If you do not have a parallel interface cable, you will need to purchase one from your local computer store or dealer (see cross-ref to parallel interface cable spec).

3-1 Network connections

Chapter 3:

Connecting the Printer to a Network

This chapter describes how to connect your printer to a network. You can connect the printer to your network with thicknet, twisted pair, or thinnet. You can also connect your printer directly to a PC compatible through the parallel port.

This chapter provides information about:

• Ethernet network connections (page 3-1)

• Token Ring network connections (page 3-3)

• Parallel cable connection (page 3-3)

• Setting up TCP/IP clients for printing (page 3-10)

TCP/IP stands for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol.

• Setting up IPX (Novell) printing (page 3-13)

IPX stands for Internet Packet Exchange.

• Setting up Windows clients for SMB printing (page 3-23 and page 3-25)

SMB stands for Server Message Block.

After you have connected the printer to the network, follow the setup instructions

in “Setup from the Control Panel and WebSetup” on page 6-1.

Network connections

This section describes the types of network connections supported by the Ci1000.

Optional network cards are available from your Mita dealer. For more information on upgrade options, see Chapter 8.

Ethernet network connections

• Thinnet (thin coaxial cable or 10Base2)

Uses an external transceiver (media access unit, or MAU) to attach to the AUI

(attachment unit interface) connector on the printer.

• Thicknet (thick coaxial cable or 10Base5)

3

3-2 Connecting the Printer to a Network

3.

Turn on the printer and turn on the computer.

Setting up TCP/IP printing

TCP/IP provides network services for high-speed local and wide area networks and heterogeneous environments including PC compatibles, Macintosh computers, minicomputers, and mainframes running diverse operating systems.

The printer supports the lpr protocol for printing over TCP/IP networks.

Network users submit print jobs to a named printer. Workstations on a TCP/IP network can print directly to the printer, or can print to a Windows NT 4.0 server or UNIX workstation acting as a print server.

Before you install the printer on a TCP/IP network, you need to obtain a Internet unique Internet address (IP address). Contact your network administrator for this information.

3

3-5 Setting up TCP/IP printing

Setting up the printing environment

To set up printing on a TCP/IP network, the network administrator must follow these steps:

• Specify the appropriate system and network settings in the printer’s Setup menus.

The administrator must enter a valid IP address for the printer, and the gateway address and subnet mask if they are used.

‘Print spooling is the process of sending a print jobs to a defined location on a hard disk, in this case the Print or Hold queues. Printers without a hard disk drive can only receive print jobs over the Direct connection. Jobs sent to the Direct connection are transferred from the computer to the printer’s RAM.

N OTE : If the printer has a hard disk drive and 32MB of memory installed, Direct,

Print, and Hold print connections are automatically available. If the printer does not have a hard disk drive, only the Direct connection is available.

If the site is using NIS (Network Information Services), a superuser must add the printer name and IP address to the system’s database of network printers.

1.

Add the Ci1000 to the network’s IP host table.

This step must be performed on the master NIS (server) machine. After adding the printer entry, the updated database must be released to network users.

2.

For the printer name, specify the print server protocol, the print connection

(queue), and the spool file.

3.

Activate the printer connection.

Depending on your system, you may restart the printer daemon or tell the printer to accept print requests.

UNIX server print queues

The lpr protocol is a printer spooling system. It is a set of programs that accepts printing requests from many users on a network, routes them to the proper print server (in this case, the Ci1000), and accepts requests to display a queue’s status or to remove jobs from a queue.

The lpr system is included in the standard installation of Berkeley-based UNIX systems, SunOS 4, and Solaris, and is an option for the SGI IRIX system.

3

3-6 Connecting the Printer to a Network

Use the examples that follow as a guide in helping you set up your network for printing to the printer.

N OTE : In these examples, “ KX-P8420_PS ” is used as the printer name (the IP host name), and “ KX-P8420_PSq ” is used to indicate the Ci1000 Print queue.

Since the printer supports only one TCP/IP ( lpr ) connection at a time, you can use the same name for the hostname and the queuename. However, the examples indicate where you should make a distinction if you want to use different names.

N OTE : For SGI workstations running IRIX 5, first load the lpr package from the

IRIX installation CD. The default installation includes only the lp printing subsystem, which does not have networking capabilities. You need to load the following items: eoe2.sw.bsdlpr

and eoe2.man.bsdlpr

T O ADD THE PRINTER AS A NETWORK PRINTER TO ALL UNIX SYSTEMS :

1.

Log in to your UNIX host as the root user.

2.

Edit your /etc/hosts file to include the printer as a network device.

The following is a sample entry for the printer:

192.9.228.1<TAB>KX-P8420_PS<TAB>#comments where < TAB > indicates that you press the tab key.

The IP address is followed by the official host name, and these are followed by aliases, if any. Type the entry exactly as shown, without a space before the IP address.

N OTE : For sites using NIS, after adding the printer entry, the superuser releases the updated information by typing: cd /var/yp make

N OTE : For sites that use DNS (Domain Name System) or that use NIS+, consult the documentation or the network administrator for instructions on publishing the printer entry.

3

3-7 Setting up TCP/IP printing

3.

Save and exit the hosts file.

4.

Confirm the connection using the ping command.

See “Verifying the TCP/IP network connection” on page 3-9.

5.

If your UNIX system uses SunOS 4 or another BSD-based variant, go to the next

section. If your system uses Solaris 2, follow the steps on page 3-8.

T O SET UP PRINTING ON A UNIX SYSTEM RUNNING S UN OS 4 OR ANOTHER

BSD BASED VARIANT :

1.

On each workstation that will print to the printer, log in to your UNIX host as the root user.

2.

Create an entry for the printer in your /etc/printcap file.

The following is a sample printcap entry for the printer. Note that the remote host name you enter in the rm line must exactly match the name you entered in the

/etc/hosts file.

KX-P8420_PSq:\

:lp=:\

:rm=KX-P8420_PS:\

:rp=xjprint:\

:lf=/var/spool/lpd/KX-P8420_PSq/log:\

:sd=/var/spool/lpd/KX-P8420_PSq:\

:mx#0:sf:sb

The spool directory KX-P8420_PS q is specified here, and the directory itself is

created in step 3. Similarly, the log file is specified here and created in step 4. The

spool directory is write-protected (from everyone but a daemon user and daemon group); users cannot modify or remove files other than their own.

It is possible to set up to two additional printer entries, one with the rp name xjdirect and one with the name xjhold . The rp name indicates the Ci1000 queue to which jobs are sent when you print to the named printer.

A printer entry with the rp name xjhold routes all jobs to the Ci1000 Hold queue.

Therefore, to print those jobs, they must be moved to the Print queue or deleted using Fiery WebSpooler.

3

3-8 Connecting the Printer to a Network

N OTE : Printers without a hard disk drive and 32MB of memory can not use Print or Hold queues ( rp name: xjprint and xjhold ), they can only receive print jobs over the Direct connection. Use the rp name xjdirect if your Ci1000 has no hard disk, or is configured with less than 32MB of memory.

3.

Create a spool directory for the printer in the /var/spool directory.

For example, enter the following: mkdir -p /var/spool/lpd/KX-P8420_PSq chown daemon /var/spool/lpd/KX-P8420_PSq

4.

Create the log files.

For example, enter the following: cp /dev/null /var/spool/lpd/KX-P8420_PSq/log

5.

Reboot the machine.

T O SET UP PRINTING ON A UNIX SYSTEM RUNNING S OLARIS 2:

1.

On each workstation that will print to the printer, log into the UNIX system as the root user.

2.

At the UNIX prompt, type: lpsystem -t bsd KX-P8420_PS

This tells your system that the printer is a print server of bsd (Berkeley Software

Distribution) type.

3.

Type: lpadmin -p KX-P8420_PSq -s KX-P8420_PS\!xjdirect

This command creates an internal queue on the workstation and points it to the printer. The general format of this command is: lpadmin -p <queuename> -s <hostname>\!xjdirect

N OTE : The name xjdirect after the exclamation point is for configuring the printer; it is an internal name that the printer requests. It must be xjdirect ; it is not a userselectable name. This is the only place where it is entered.

3

3-9 Setting up TCP/IP printing

As with SunOS 4 or other BSD based systems, when printing to printers with a hard disk and a minimum of 32MB of memory it is possible to configure up to two additional printer entries, one with the rp name xjprint and one with the rp name xjhold

(see page 3-7).

4.

Type: accept KX-P8420_PSq

This command tells the printer to accept print requests from your workstation.

You are now ready to print from the workstation to the printer.

5.

Type: enable KX-P8420_PS q

Verifying the TCP/IP network connection

Before a device on a TCP/IP network can send print jobs to the printer, the printer must be given a valid IP address, as well as a gateway address and subnet mask, if applicable. The IP address is used on all TCP/IP networks and must always be assigned before the printer can be verified across the network.

Because TCP/IP networks require some UNIX setup by the network administrator, you may not be able to send a test page from the driver across the network to the printer immediately after installation. The following procedure enables you to verify that there is a proper connection between the printer and the network without using the printer driver to print a test page. Before you begin this procedure, verify that the printer is functioning by printing a page from the printer’s ROM.

For step by step instructions, see “Printing pages from the control panel” on page 2-18 of Operating Instructions.

Once the printer’s TCP/IP setup is complete, you can verify the availability of the printer using the ping command from the DOS prompt with Windows 95, or from the Command prompt with Windows NT 4.0.

3

3-10 Connecting the Printer to a Network

T

O VERIFY THE

TCP/IP

CONNECTION

:

• To see if the printer responds to its address, use the ping command.

Use the format: ping <IP address>

Use the printer IP address assigned in Network Setup. After the printer has been given a hostname by your network administrator, you can also ping the name you gave it: ping <hostname>

The server should respond with a message such as:

<IP address> is alive.

Some systems will respond with a continuous display of output from the IP address. To stop the output, type Control-C.

Setting up TCP/IP clients for printing

If the printer is being added to an existing network, each TCP/IP client is already running TCP/IP client software.

The Ci1000 supports TCP/IP client software on UNIX workstations, PC compatibles, and Macintosh computers. With Macintosh computers, however, it is easiest to use the built-in AppleTalk protocol to communicate directly with the printer.

If the client workstation is a PC running Windows, set up the printer as a

Windows PostScript printer by installing the PostScript printer driver, as described in Chapter 5. For setting up your networking software, see the documentation for your networking environment.

3

3-11 Setting up TCP/IP printing

Setting up TCP/IP clients for running Fiery WebTools

Fiery WebTools software comes pre-installed on the Ci1000. Fiery WebTools include: WebSpooler, Status, WebDownloader, WebSetup, and WebLink.

When TCP/IP is enabled for the printer in Network Setup, Fiery WebTools are immediately available to clients that:

• Are connected to a TCP/IP network with a consistent set of IP addresses, one for the printer and one for each computer connect to the printer

• Have an Internet connection and a Java enabled Web browser.

The recommended browsers are:

• Netscape Navigator 3.04 for Macintosh computers,

• Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0.1 or Netscape Communicator 4.0.4 for

Windows computers.

N OTE : Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.x does not support the WebDownloader.

Note also that Windows NT 4.0 users must download the Windows NT 4.0 Hot

Fix dated July 7, 1997 in order to run the WebDownloader with Netscape

Communicator 4.x.

Netscape and Microsoft continue to release frequent updates to their browsers. As support cannot be guaranteed for all versions, use the versions specified above for best results.

To access Fiery WebTools, enter the IP address or DNS name of the Ci1000 as a

URL in the Internet browser. For more information, see p..

Printing and administering print jobs

Once the printer has been properly installed on the TCP/IP network, users should be able to send print jobs to the Ci1000 from most applications. UNIX clients also commonly use UNIX printing commands to print PostScript files and text files to the printer.

For information on printing PostScript files and text files using UNIX commands see Chapter 3 of Drivers and Utilities.

3

3-12 Connecting the Printer to a Network

If you have superuser privileges you can remove any lpd jobs from the printer queue; removing your own jobs doesn’t require special privileges.

T

O REMOVE JOBS FROM THE PRINTER QUEUE

:

• On a UNIX system running SunOS 4 or other BSD-based variant, use the lprm command to remove jobs from the queue.

To remove job number 123 from the print queue of your Ci1000 named printer , you would type: lprm -P<printername> <job #…> or, for example: lprm -PCi1000 123

The lprm command reports the names of any files it removes.

To determine the job number, use the lpq command described below.

lpq -p<printername>

• On a UNIX system running Solaris 2, use the cancel command to remove jobs from the queue.

Type: cancel <job ID>

For example, to remove a job whose ID is printer-123 from the print queue of your Ci1000, type: cancel printer -123

To find out a print job’s job ID, use the lpstat command described below:

• On a UNIX system running Solaris 2, use the lpstat command to see printer jobs in the queue.

lpstat -o <queuename>

For example, if your printer queue is named Ci1000 q , type: lpstat -o Ci1000q

The returned list of jobs includes each job ID.

Once lpr print jobs are spooled to the printer’s hard disk, you can use WebSpooler to monitor print jobs.

3

3-13 Setting up IPX (Novell) printing

Setting up IPX (Novell) printing

IPX, Novell’s Internetwork Packet Exchange protocol, runs on networks that include a Novell NetWare server. The server, typically a dedicated PC, is usually configured to control workstation access to shared resources. In addition to other services, NetWare servers use IPX protocols to provide spooling, queue management, and print services to computers (including Macintosh, DOS,

UNIX, and VAX) whose operating software is compatible with IPX protocols.

This section describes network setup for an IPX (Novell) network.

Overview of IPX printing to the Ci1000

NetWare file servers support the creation of print queues, storage areas for print jobs. When a user on a network workstation prints a job, the job is sent to a print queue on the NetWare server. The job is spooled to the NetWare file server disk, freeing up the workstation.

The queues on the NetWare server must be named to match the Direct connection and Print queue on the Ci1000. The NetWare queue names should be given an extension corresponding to the Ci1000 printing connection, as follows:

_print

_hold

_direct

N OTE : The extensions must be all lowercase and in English.

When the Ci1000 is configured to connect to a NetWare server, it polls the

NetWare server for jobs in each of its queues. If jobs are found, they are transferred over the network to the matching connection: Print to Print, Direct to

Direct. While a job is processed and printed, a record of the job is being created.

You can access the Job Log containing these records at any time.

When the printer is connected to a NetWare print queue that is defined on the

NetWare server, the printer polls the queue for jobs and receives them over the network for immediate processing and printing. All printer jobs are sent from the printer queue on the NetWare server to the Ci1000.

3

3-14 Connecting the Printer to a Network

To set up network printing, enable IPX/SPX Setup from the printer’s front panel

(see “Network Protocol Setup” on page 6-7), and set up the PServer using

WebSetup (see Drivers and Utilities). There is no need to rerun Setup when adding or removing a NetWare queue; however, you should reboot the Ci1000 after a queue is created or removed.

Configuring the NetWare server

This section explains how to set up the NetWare server so that networked users can print to the printer from their workstations. There are two stages to this setup:

• The network administrator must set up a print queue on the NetWare server so users can print to it, and the printer can receive print jobs from it.

• Optionally, the administrator can set up the server for network installation of

PostScript printer drivers on client workstations.

Before configuring a NetWare file server for printing to the Ci1000, make sure that it is connected to a functioning IPX network.Then, log in as the supervisor on a PC connected to the NetWare file server, and configure the file server as described in the following sections.

Before you begin, you’ll need to determine the following names:

• The name of the NetWare file server on which you will define the printer as a new print server.

• The name of the NetWare print server. This name is used for communication between the printer and the NetWare file server.

• The name to assign to the Ci1000 Direct, Print or Hold queue. If you are defining a Hold queue, the last five characters must be ‘_hold’. You need to set up at least one print queue on the NetWare server for jobs that will be printed by the printer. Users will see and print to the name you assign to the Print queue.

Names should be as brief and descriptive as possible. Server names cannot begin with a period and cannot include spaces or punctuation characters other than periods.

3

3-15 Setting up IPX (Novell) printing

• To complete network setup, you will need to log in to the NetWare file server and the new print server from the printer. You will need a login name and, if access to the server is restricted, a login password.

Setting the NetWare 4.x bindery context

Novell 4.x servers use a different environment setup than Novell 3.1x servers. (If

your server is using NetWare 3.x, proceed to “Setting up a Ci1000 print queue” on page 3-18.) The native structure for Novell 4.x objects is known as Novell

Directory Services (NDS). To provide backward compatibility with Novell 3.1x services, Novell 4.x servers use Bindery Emulation to “act” like a Novell 3.1x server.

To set up the NetWare 4.x server for printing to the printer, you must do the following:

• Determine the NDS path to the container in which the print server and the print queue for the printer will be created.

The container defines the “bindery context” for your network structure.

Network devices that are not NetWare 4.x-aware need a bindery context to work with NetWare 4.x.

• Edit the network startup file to set the bindery context.

• Activate the new bindery context.

This section describes the second and third steps. Given the variety of possible network structures, we can’t suggest a bindery context that applies to every network.

TO SET THE BINDERY CONTEXT :

1.

At the NetWare drive prompt, change directories to the System directory, and type rconsole .

2.

Establish a connection with the server that will have the printer queue.

3.

At the NetWare prompt type load install .

3-21 Using AppleTalk with Macintosh computers on an IPX (Novell) network

Setting up NetWare Windows clients

Before setting up client workstations, make sure you perform Network Setup on the printer, and that the settings reflect the entities you created in PCONSOLE .

Client setup has two parts:

• Install the PS printer driver on each Windows workstation.

• Configure the printer driver to print to a print queue on a Novell file server.

For instructions on installing the appropriate printer driver for your system see

Chapter 5.

For instructions on configuring the printer driver to print to a Novell file server print queue, see the sections entitled: Completing the Windows 95, NT 4.0 or

3.1 IPX (Novell) connection in Chapter 5.

Using AppleTalk with Macintosh computers on an IPX (Novell) network

Macintosh users on an IPX network can print to the printer in two ways:

• Directly, using AppleTalk and bypassing the NetWare server

• Through a NetWare server running NetWare for Macintosh

Since the printer supports both AppleTalk and IPX protocols at the same time, it’s not necessary to use the second option. However, a network administrator may choose to route all print jobs through a server.

N OTE : The printer can be attached to only one NetWare server at a time.

Printing directly to the printer

Due to the layered design of networks, data can be transmitted using more than one network protocol. When Macintosh computers are connected to an IPX network, they can continue to transmit data over Ethernet cable using AppleTalk protocols. If the printer is on the same network, Macintosh computers can see and print to the printer, provided that AppleTalk is enabled on the Macintosh and in

Network Protocol Setup.

3-22 Connecting the Printer to a Network

Setting up Fiery WebTools

Fiery WebTools allow you to manage your Ci1000 remotely from the Internet or from your company’s intranet. The Ci1000 has its own home page, from which you are able to select from a variety of functions including Status,

Fiery WebSpooler, WebLink, Fiery WebDownloader, and Fiery WebSetup.

I MPORTANT : Before you can send jobs to the printer, you must use Fiery WebSetup to complete the process of configuring Setup options, as described starting on

page 6-18. Therefore, you must complete the procedures described in this section and in “Viewing and changing Setup from Fiery WebSetup” on page 6-18 before

you can send jobs to the printer.

For information on using Fiery WebTools (other than Fiery WebSetup), see

Drivers and Utilities.

In order for network users to access and use Fiery WebTools, you need to set network communication options in Network Protocol Setup on the control panel.

You also need to prepare each user’s workstation to communicate with the Ci1000 using Fiery WebTools over the Internet or intranet. Once the initial Setup has been performed from the printer’s front panel, you must complete the Setup configuration from Fiery WebSetup.

4

4-4 Installing Macintosh Software

Adobe Type Manager

Adobe Type Manager (ATM) is included on the User Software CD. This application can be used to transfer Type 1 fonts to the printer’s RAM or hard disk, or to manage fonts on the printer. Manual downloading of fonts not already provided on the printer eliminates the need for automatic downloading of fonts used by a document, which speeds printing. You can also:

• Install the PostScript Type 1 fonts that correspond to those installed on your printer

• Print using PostScript fonts on non-PostScript printers

• The ATM 4.0.2 installer installs both ATM and the Adobe Downloader 5.0.5 utility, which can be used to download PostScript files and non-resident printer fonts to the Ci1000. You can also use the Adobe Downloader to send the

PANTONE and CMYK color reference files to the printer. See the instructions provided with the ATM package to install and use ATM for Macintosh.

PostScript and TrueType fonts

In addition to PostScript Type 1 fonts, TrueType fonts are included in the PS3 folder on the User Software CD.

ATM cannot be used to install TrueType fonts. These fonts can, however, be installed by dragging a copy of each from the PS3 fonts folder on the User

Software CD to your System folder.

For a complete list of fonts included with the Ci1000, see Appendix A of the

Drivers and Utilities.

Color reference pages

CMYK and PANTONE color reference pages are provided on the User Software

CD in the form of downloadable PostScript files.

4

4-5 Installing additional software for Macintosh users

CMYK Color Reference

The CMYK Color Reference is a PostScript file (CMYK Ref.ps), which can be printed using a PostScript downloader utility, such as Fiery WebDownloader. If the file has not already been installed in the Mita Ci1000 directory on your hard disk drive, you can copy it from the Color Reference directory on the User

Software CD to a directory of your choice.

Each of the 11 pages displays swatches in graduated combinations of yellow, magenta, and cyan, and smaller patches that include 25%, 50%, and 75% black.

The process colors are shown in 10% increments. You can specify these colors, and colors in between, in any application that allows you to define colors as

CMYK percentages—and use the pages to see how they will be printed on your particular printer.

For more information about color management using the CMYK Color

Reference, see “Choosing colors in PostScript applications” in Drivers and

Utilities.

PANTONE Coated Color Reference

The PANTONE Coated Color Reference is a PostScript file (PANTONE

Book.ps), which can be printed using a PostScript downloader utility, such as

Fiery WebDownloader. If the file has not already been installed in the Mita

Ci1000 directory on your hard disk drive, you can copy it from the Color

Reference directory on the User Software CD to a directory of your choice.

The PANTONE color matching system is a standard color system within the graphic arts and prepress industries. It specifies hundreds of spot colors, each identified with a unique number. Each PANTONE color is simulated on the printer by printing an appropriate combination of process (CMYK) colors. The ability to simulate PANTONE colors is a basic form of color management.

You can choose PANTONE colors in any application that allows you to define colors as named PANTONE colors—and use the pages to see how they will be printed on your particular printer

Installing additional software for Windows users

Additional software, including Adobe Type Manager (ATM), a PANTONE color reference file, a CMYK reference file, a Ci1000 ICM profile, sample files from popular Windows applications are included on the User Software CD.

When a Typical installation is performed on Windows 95 or Windows NT using the installer, all files are automatically installed to a directory on your hard drive called Ci1000. When a Compact installation is performed, only the printer drivers appropriate to your system are installed. You can also select which additional files to install during a Custom installation procedure, or you can copy the additional files from the User Software CD to a directory of your choice as they are needed.

N OTE : Windows 3.x users must manually copy the files on the User Software CD to their hard drive.

Some files, such as fonts, will need to be moved to specific locations; others can be moved to a directory of your choice.

PostScript and TrueType fonts

Regular, bold, italic, and bold italic versions of PostScript Type 1 fonts, as well as

TrueType fonts are provided in the PS3 folder on the User Software CD. These fonts correspond to the PS3 fonts installed on your printer. To use these fonts in applications and to properly display them on your monitor, you will need to install them on your computer. For information on installing fonts see the following section.

5

5-19 Installing additional software for Windows users

For a complete list of fonts included with the Ci1000 printer, see Appendix A of

Drivers and Utilities.

ATM (Windows 95 and Windows 3.1x)

Adobe Type Manager (ATM) is included on the User Software CD. This application can be used to transfer Type 1 fonts to the printer’s memory or hard disk drive, or to manage fonts on the printer. Manual downloading of fonts not already provided on the printer eliminates the need for automatic downloading of fonts used by a document, which speeds printing. You can also:

• Install the PostScript Type 1 fonts that correspond to those installed on your printer

• Print using PostScript fonts on nonPostScript printers

• Improve the screen display of PostScript fonts

When a Typical installation is performed all the files needed to install Adobe ATM for Windows 95 are copied to the Ci1000 directory. Windows 3.x users must manually copy the ATM files on the User Software CD to their hard drive.

See the instructions provided with ATM for information on how to use the correct version for your system.

N OTE : ATM cannot be used to install TrueType fonts, which are also included in the PS3 folder. These fonts can, however, be installed on Windows 95 and

Windows NT 4.0 using the Control Panel >Fonts>File >Install New Font command. Windows 3.1 users can install TrueType fonts by double-clicking the

Control Panel Fonts icon and selecting the fonts to be added. For additional information on installing TrueType fonts on Windows platforms, see the documentation that came with your system.

Color reference pages

CMYK and PANTONE color reference pages are provided on the User Software

CD in the form of downloadable PostScript files.

5

5-20 Installing Software for Windows

CMYK Color Reference

The CMYK Color Reference is a PostScript file (Cmyk.ps), which can be printed using a PostScript downloader utility, such as Fiery WebDownloader. If the file has not already been installed in the Mita Ci1000 directory on your hard disk drive, you can copy it from the Clrfiles directory on the User Software CD to a directory of your choice.

Each of the 11 pages displays swatches in graduated combinations of yellow, magenta, and cyan, and smaller patches that include 25%, 50%, and 75% black.

The process colors are shown in 10% increments. You can specify these colors, and colors in between, in any application that allows you to define colors as

CMYK percentages—and use the pages to see how they will be printed on your particular printer.

For more information about color management using the CMYK Color

Reference, see “Choosing colors in PostScript applications” in Drivers and

Utilities.

PANTONE Coated Color Reference

The PANTONE Coated Color Reference is a PostScript file (Pantone.ps), which can be printed using a PostScript downloader utility, such as Fiery

WebDownloader. If the file has not already been installed in the Mita Ci1000 directory on your hard disk drive, you can copy it from the Clrfiles directory on the User Software CD to a directory of your choice.

The PANTONE color matching system is a standard color system within the graphic arts and prepress industries. It specifies hundreds of spot colors, each identified with a unique number. Each PANTONE color is simulated on the printer by printing an appropriate combination of process (CMYK) colors. The ability to simulate PANTONE colors is a basic form of color management.

You can choose PANTONE colors in any application that allows you to define colors as named PANTONE colors—and use the pages to see how they will be printed on your particular printer

Paper weight

The printer is designed to work well with most types of paper. However, differences inpaper may have significant effects on the quality of the print or the reliability of paper handling. It is strongly recommended that you always test paper before purchasing it to makesure it provides desirable performance.

• Recommended paper (for optimum performance):

LETTER/LEGAL: Hammermill LASERPRINT 90 g/m (24 lbs.)

A4: NEUSIEDLER COLOR COPY 90 g/m 2

N OTE : We do not recommend the use of 105 g/m 2 (28 lbs.) paper in areas of high or low humidity and temperature since paper feed problems may be experienced.

Types of paper to avoid

• Extremely smooth or shiny paper or paper that is highly textured

• Letterhead imprinted with low temperature or thermography. These materials may transfer onto the fusing roller and cause damage. Any pre-printed paper should use inks compatible with 200 °C (392 °F) for 0.1 second.

• Damaged or wrinkled paper, or paper with irregularities such as tabs, staples, etc.

• Multipart forms or carbonless paper

Paper with a 25% or more cotton and/or fiber contentInk jet paper (It may transfer onto the fuser roller and cause damage.)

A

A-4 Color Capabilities

Two-sided printing

Two-sided printing is possible by using the multi-purpose tray. However, you should not expect the same print quality and reliability that you get with onesided printing. We strongly recommend that you follow the guidelines below.

• Do not load more than 10 sheets in the multi-purpose tray.

• Before loading paper in the multi-purpose tray, adjust it so that the edges are

Multi-purpose tray

Transparencies and labels

You may also print on transparencies and labels that are made for the printer.Panasonic has tested and found that the following work satisfactorily:

OHP transparency: 3M CG3700

Labels: AVERY 5163, AVERY 5164, AVERY 5165,Avery L7163, Avery L7165,

Avery L7166, Avery L7167, Avery L7168, Avery L7169

• Re-using transparencies that have been fed through the printer once (for example, after jams or if the transparency is ejected without being printed) can reduce the life of the consumables and paper path components.

• When using transparencies, if the print quality is poor, print on the other side.

• With any label stock, the labels must completely cover the backing material.

Labels cover the entire backing material.

The following are good example of label media, where labels cover the entire backing material:

A

A-5 Color Capabilities

The following are example of incorrect label media, where the backing material is exposed:

Envelopes

It is recommended that you print in black text only and purchase high quality #10 laser envelopes with diagonal seams, as shown in the diagram below:

High quality envelopes have the following characteristics:

• A thin, sharply creased leading edge

• Paper weight of 90 g/m 2 (24 lbs.)

• Flat, free of curls, wrinkles, nicks, etc.

It is not recommended that you use envelopes with any of the following characteristics (using these may result in paper jams):

• Irregularly shaped envelopes

• Envelopes with curls, wrinkles, nicks, twists, dog-ears or other damage

• Envelopes with side seam construction

• Highly textured envelopes, or with extremely shiny surfaces

• Envelopes that seal by removing a peel-off strip

• Envelopes with more than one flap to be sealed

A

A-6 Color Capabilities

• Self-adhesive envelopes

• Envelopes that are baggy or not sharply creased

• Embossed envelopes

• Envelopes that have previously been printed on

Do not attempt to print on any of the following types of envelopes. These may cause damage to your printer.

• Envelopes with clasps, snaps or tie strings (see Figure 1)

• Envelopes with transparent windows (see Figure 2)

• Envelopes that will melt, discolor, scorch offset or release hazardous emissionswhen exposed to 200 °C (392 °F) for 0.1 second

• Envelopes that use encapsulated types of adhesive that do not require moisteningbut rely on pressure to seal them

A

A-7 Color Capabilities

Always test a sample of the envelopes you are thinking of buying. Confirm that the envelope performs acceptably.

For best printing results

• BAvoid printing in high humidity i.e., above 70%.

• High humidity may cause the envelope to curl and pick up excess toner.

• High humidity may also cause the envelope to seal.

• Avoid printing below 10 °C (50 °F) with less than 30% relative humidity. Low temperature with low humidity may cause light printing.

Envelope storage is very important. Store them away from moisture and humid air, where they can lay flat and their edges won’t be bent or damaged. The humidity should not exceed 70% RH.
