Printer. They are guaranteed to produce excellent results with your system. For the most current information about Xerox printing media, go to www.xerox.com/office/c2424support .

Caution

Damage caused by using unsupported paper, transparencies, and other specialty media is not covered by the Xerox warranty, service agreement, or Total Satisfaction Guarantee.

The Total Satisfaction Guarantee is available in the United States and Canada. Coverage may vary outside these areas; please contact your local representative for details.

Tray and Media Usage Guidelines

The system trays accommodate most sizes and types of paper, transparencies, or other specialty media.

Do not overload the paper tray. Do not load paper above the fill line on the inside of the paper guide.

Adjust the paper guides to fit the paper size. For Trays 2, 3, and 4, the paper guides click into place when they are adjusted correctly.

If excessive jams occur, use paper, transparencies, or other specialty media from a new package.

Custom size paper can be printed only from Tray 1.

Xerox Professional Solid Ink Photo Paper, Xerox Professional Solid Ink Glossy Paper, and

Xerox Professional Solid Ink Trifold Brochures, can be printed from any tray, although they exceed the recommended weight guidelines for Trays 2–4.

Use Xerox Professional Solid Ink Transparencies; print quality may vary with other transparencies.

When printing photos, postcards, or brochures, some attention to stacking in the output tray may be required.

Media Storage Guidelines

Providing a good environment, and safe handling and storage conditions for your paper and other media contributes to optimum print quality.

Store paper in dark, cool, relatively dry locations. Most paper items are susceptible to damage from ultraviolet (UV) and visible light. UV radiation, which is emitted by the sun and fluorescent bulbs, is particularly damaging to paper items. The intensity and length of exposure to visible light on paper items should be reduced as much as possible.

Maintain constant temperatures and relative humidity.

Avoid light, heat, and dampness.

Avoid attics, kitchens, garages, and basements for storing paper. Inside walls are drier than outside walls where moisture can collect.

Store paper flat. Paper should be stored on pallets, cartons, shelves, or in cabinets.

Avoid having food or drinks in the area where paper is stored or handled.

Do not open sealed packages of paper until you are ready to load them into the system.

Leave paper in the original packaging. For most commercial cut-size grades, the ream wrapper contains an inner lining that protects the paper from moisture loss or gain.

Some specialty media is packaged inside resealable plastic bags. Leave the media inside the bag until you are ready to use it; reinsert unused media in the bag and reseal it for protection.

Media that May Damage Your System

Your system is designed to use a variety of media types for print and copy jobs. However, some media can cause poor output quality, increased paper jams, or damage to your system.

Unacceptable media for Trays 1–4 include:

Rough or porous media

Plastic media

Paper that has been folded or wrinkled

Paper that has been photocopied

Paper with staples inserted

Envelopes with windows, metal clasps, or adhesives with release strips

Padded envelopes

Videos are available with instructions for basic scanning. Videos are located on the User Documentation CD-ROM and at www.xerox.com/office/c2424support .

Overview

The scanning procedure used with the WorkCentre C2424 Copier-Printer differs from that of desktop scanners. Because the system is normally connected to a network rather than directly to a computer, the user scans a document or image at the system, then uses their computer to retrieve the scanned image.

Scanned images are normally stored on the system’s hard drive, in either the Public Folder or in a private folder. Users can also choose to scan images directly to their computer (Windows only).

Note

Jobs can print while you are scanning originals or retrieving files from the system hard drive.

File Names

The system creates file names for scanned images using the current date and time. For information about setting the system date and time, see the Features chapter of this guide.

File Sizes

The size of scanned image files varies based on the image that is scanned and the scan resolution and color options selected:

The higher the scan resolution, the larger the file size.

An image scanned in color will have a larger file size than the same image scanned in black and white.

For more information, see "Setting the Scan Resolution" on page 4-7 and "Selecting Color or

Black and White Images" on page 4-8.

For information about managing system disk space, see "Deleting Image Files" on page 4-19.

Retrieving the Scanned Images

The method you use to retrieve scanned images depends on how the system is connected to the network and the destination you chose for the scanned image.

If the system is connected to a network, you can copy the image files from the Public

Folder or a private folder on the system’s hard drive to your computer’s hard drive using

CentreWare IS, or using the Xerox Scan Utility (Windows only).

If the system has either a USB or network connection, you can import the images from the

Public Folder or a private folder on the system’s hard drive into an application on your computer by using the application’s Insert, Acquire, or Import menu selection.

If you scanned images directly to your Windows computer, you can retrieve the images from the My Scanned Images folder on your computer.

For more information, see "Retrieving Images" on page 4-11.

Installing the Scan Driver

If you plan to either import the scanned images directly into an application (such as Photoshop or Word) or scan directly to your computer, you must install the Xerox scan driver.

Xerox provides scan drivers for the Windows and Macintosh operating systems along with the printer drivers on the WorkCentre C2424 Software CD-ROM that came with your system.

Note

Xerox scan drivers can also be found on the web at www.xerox.com/office/drivers .

To install the scan driver:

1.

Insert the WorkCentre C2424 Software CD-ROM in your computer.

2.

Click the Install Drivers link.

3.

Click the Install Printer and Scan Drivers link, then follow the instructions to install the drivers.

Downloading Fonts

To supplement the resident fonts (which are always available for printing), downloadable fonts can be sent from your computer and stored in the system’s memory or on the system’s hard drive.

Note

If you turn the system off, the fonts you download to memory are deleted. You must download them again when you turn the system on.

Before printing, verify that the fonts specified in your document are installed in the system or are set up to download correctly. If your document has a font not currently in your system, or downloaded with your print job, a different font will be used.

The system accepts the following downloadable fonts for printing:

PCL

Envelopes

Successful envelope printing is highly dependent on the quality and construction of the envelopes. Follow these guidelines when printing envelopes:

All envelopes should be printed single-sided only.

Use only paper envelopes.

Do not use envelopes with windows, metal clasps, or adhesives with release strips.

Some wrinkling and embossing may occur when printing envelopes.

Note

Envelopes with side seams, end-flaps, or with flat, announcement style flaps may jam.

Supported Not Supported

Storing Envelopes

Maintain constant temperatures and relative humidity.

Store unused envelopes in their packaging to avoid the effects of moisture and dryness which can affect print quality and cause wrinkling. Excessive moisture can cause the envelopes to seal before or during printing.

Preparing to Print

All envelopes should be printed single-sided only.

Remove air “bubbles” from the envelopes before loading by setting a heavy book on top of the envelopes.

If ink is missing around the envelope seams:

Move the location of the text to another place on the envelope.

Carbonless Paper

Xerox Carbonless Paper reams are pre-collated into sets of two or more sheets. The first sheet of a set is white; the subsequent sheets are different colors.

Most carbonless paper reams are straight collated, with the first sheet of a set on top.

Reverse collated reams are stacked in the opposite order, with last sheet of a set on top.

You can print Xerox Carbonless Paper from any tray.

To order paper, transparencies, or other specialty media, contact your local reseller or go to www.xerox.com/office/supplies .

Guidelines

Do not open sealed packages of carbonless paper until you are ready to load them.

Do not leave unused carbonless paper in the paper trays. Seal and store unused paper in the original wrapper.

Xerox Carbonless Paper has an odor that differs from regular paper. This is normal and is not harmful in any way.

Rotate stock frequently. For best results, use carbonless paper within one year from the date of purchase.

The friction feed action of the paper tray may cause a slight scuff mark on the second or subsequent sheets.

If you encounter a paper jam while running carbonless paper, maintain the integrity of the pre-collated sets by: a.

Checking the color of the last printed sheet.

b.

Discarding sheets from the input tray so that the next sheet to print is the correct color sequence.

Printing Xerox Carbonless Paper from Tray 1

1.

Find the label on the end of the paper ream package. The label contains an arrow pointing to the top of the ream.

2.

Open the package, and select the number of sets that you want to print. A set contains a white sheet, followed by one or more colored sheets.

Printing Booklets

With two-sided printing, you can print a document in the form of a small book. Create booklets for any paper size that is supported for 2-sided (duplex) printing. The driver automatically reduces each page image by 50 percent and prints two pages per sheet of paper.

The pages are printed in the correct order so that you can fold and staple the pages to create a booklet.

When you choose to print booklets, you can also specify the creep and gutter in both

Windows 98 and Windows Me drivers. The gutter is the horizontal distance from the fold to the page image (in points). The creep is the distance that page images are shifted inward (in

10ths of a point); this compensates for the thickness of the folded paper, which otherwise would cause the inner page images to shift slightly outward.

To select booklet printing in a supported Windows driver:

Windows 98, Windows Me PostScript driver:

On the Setup tab, click More Layout Options, then check Print Booklet Style in the

More Layout Options box. You can also specify the creep and gutter in this box.

Printing Cover Pages

A cover page is the first or last page of a document. The printer enables you to choose a different paper source for the cover page than for the body of a document. For instance, use your company letterhead for the first page of a document, or use card stock for the first and last pages of a report.

Use any applicable paper tray as the source for printing cover pages.

Verify that the cover page is the same size as the paper used for the rest of your document.

If you specify a different size in the driver than the tray you select as a cover pages source, your cover(s) print on the same paper as the rest of your document.

You have several choices for cover pages:

None - Prints the first and last pages of your document from the same tray as the rest of your document.

First - Prints the first page on paper from the specified tray.

First and Last - Prints the first and last pages on paper from the specified tray.

Overview of Network Setup and Configuration

Network connection and configuration steps are performed in the following order.

1.

Turn the system and the computer On.

2.

Connect the system to the network using the recommended hardware and cables.

3.

Configure the system’s network address, which is required to identify the system on the network. Run the Installer on the WorkCentre C2424 Software CD-ROM to automatically set the system’s IP address, if the system is connected to an established TCP/IP network.

If you do not want to run the Installer to automatically set the IP address, you can do one of the following:

For Windows operating systems, use TCP/IP to manually set the multifunction system’s IP address.

For Macintosh, use TCP/IP or AppleTalk/EtherTalk to set the system’s network address.

4.

Install the driver software on the computer from the WorkCentre C2424 Software CD-

ROM. For information on driver installation, see the section in this chapter for the specific operating system you are using.

Connections and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

Choosing a Connection Method

You can connect the system to the network via Ethernet or USB. Hardware and cabling requirements vary for the different connection methods. Cabling and hardware listed below are generally not included with your system and must be purchased separately.

Ethernet

Ethernet can be used for one or more computers. It supports many printers and systems on an

Ethernet network.

USB

If you are connecting to one computer, a USB connection offers fast data speeds. However, a

USB connection is not as fast as an Ethernet connection. To use USB, PC users must have

Microsoft Windows 98 SP2, SE, Windows Me, Windows XP or Windows 2000. Macintosh users must use OS 9.x or later.

Connecting via Ethernet (Recommended)

An Ethernet connection is recommended because it is faster than a USB connection. It also allows the user direct access to CentreWare Internet Services (IS). CentreWare IS provides a simple interface that enables you to manage, configure, and monitor networked systems from your desktop using an embedded web server. For complete information about CentreWare IS, click the Help button in CentreWare IS to go to the CentreWare IS Online Help.

Network Connection

Depending on your particular setup, the following hardware and cabling is required for

Ethernet.

If you are connecting to one computer, an Ethernet “crossover” RJ-45 cable is required.

If you are connecting to one or more computers with a hub, an Ethernet hub and two twisted-pair (category 5/RJ-45) cables are required.

If you are connecting to one or more computers using a cable or DSL router, a cable or

DSL router and two or more twisted-pair (category 5/RJ-45) cables are required. (One cable for each device.)

If you are connecting to one or more computers with a hub, connect the computer to the hub with one cable, then connect the system to the hub with the second cable. Connect to any port on the hub except the uplink port.

TCP/IP and EtherTalk are the most common protocols used with Ethernet. To print using TCP/

IP, each computer and system requires a unique IP address. For more information, see "Configuring the Network Address" on page 6-5.

Standalone (Cable or DSL) Network Connection

For information about setting up a cable or DSL connection for your system, go to the table of

infoSMART Knowledge Base documents at the end of this section.

WorkCentre® C2424 Copier-Printer

6-3

Connections and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

Connecting via USB

A USB connection requires a standard A/B USB cable. This cable is not included with your system and must be purchased separately. Verify that you are using the correct USB cable for your connection.

Windows 98 or Later and Windows 2000 or Later

Connections and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

Configuring the Network Address

TCP/IP and IP Addresses

If your computer is on a large network, contact your network administrator for the appropriate

TCP/IP addresses and additional configuration information.

If you are creating your own small Local Area Network or connecting the system directly to your computer using Ethernet, follow the procedure for automatically setting the system’s

Internet Protocol (IP) address.

PCs and systems primarily use TCP/IP protocols to communicate over an Ethernet network.

With TCP/IP protocols, each system and computer must have a unique IP address. It is important that the addresses are similar, but not the same; only the last digit needs to be different. For example, your system can have the address 192.168.1.2 while your computer has the address 192.168.1.3. Another device can have the address 192.168.1.4.

Generally, Macintosh computers use the EtherTalk protocol to talk to a networked system.

Unlike TCP/IP, EtherTalk does not require systems or computers to have IP addresses.

Many networks have a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. A DHCP server automatically programs an IP address into every PC and system on the network that is configured to use DHCP. A DHCP server is built into most cable and DSL routers. If you use a cable or DSL router, see your router’s documentation for information on IP addressing.

For more information, go to the table of

infoSMART Knowledge Base documents at the end of

this section.

Automatically Setting the System’s IP Address

If the system is connected to a small established TCP/IP network without a DHCP server, use the Installer on the WorkCentre C2424 Software CD-ROM to detect or assign an IP address to the system. For further instructions, insert the software CD-ROM into your computer’s CD-

ROM drive. After the Installer launches, follow the prompts for installation.

Note

For the automatic Installer to function, the system must be connected to an established

TCP/IP network.

Dynamic Methods of Setting the System’s IP Address

You can set the system’s IP address using any of the following methods.

DHCP

CentreWare IS

AutoIP

Information Required for Manual IP Addressing

Information

Internet Protocol (IP) address of the system

Network Mask

Default Router/Gateway address

Format is xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, where xxx represents a decimal number from 0–255.

If you are unsure, leave this blank; the system chooses an appropriate mask.

Router address is required to communicate with the host device from anywhere other than the local network segment.

Enabling DHCP on the System

Verify that the system DHCP protocol is enabled by setting the control panel or by using

CentreWare IS.

Note

To determine the system’s IP address, select System Identification at the control panel.

For information about the control panel, see the Features section of this guide.

Connections and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

Using Host Names with the Domain Name Service (DNS)

The system supports DNS through an embedded DNS resolver. The DNS resolver protocol communicates with one or more DNS servers to resolve the IP address for a given host name or the host name for a given IP address.

To use an IP host name for the system, the system administrator must configure one or more

DNS servers and a local DNS domain name space database. To set up the system for DNS, supply a maximum of two DNS name server IP addresses.

Dynamic Domain Name Service (DDNS)

The system supports Dynamic DNS through DHCP. You must have DHCP enabled on the system for DDNS to function. Your network’s DHCP server must also support Dynamic DNS updates through option 12 or option 81 support. See your network administrator for details.

1.

Launch your web browser.

2.

Enter the system’s IP address in the browser’s Address field (http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx).

Using Device Management Features

Job Accounting

Job accounting is available through CentreWare IS and CentreWare Web.

The system stores information about print jobs in a log file. The log file is stored either in the device’s memory or on an optional hard disk if one is installed in the system. If the log file is stored in the device’s memory, it is lost when the system is reset. It is recommended that a hard disk be used for job accounting.

The log file lists job records. Each record contains fields such as user name, job name, pages printed, job times, and toner or ink used. Not all fields are supported by all systems. For more information, go to the CentreWare IS Online Help or CentreWare Web Online Help.

The job accounting values reported vary depending on the protocol and print command used when each job was printed. For example, using NPRINT over NetWare provides the system with the most information about the job being printed. When using Windows and NetWare, the job name is often LST: or LST:BANNER. Other jobs from other ports may provide less information about the job.

Using CentreWare IS

1.

Launch your web browser.

2.

Enter the system’s IP address in the browser’s Address field (http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx).

User Safety

WorkCentre® C2424 Copier-Printer

Your system and the recommended supplies have been designed and tested to meet strict safety requirements. Attention to the following information will ensure the continued safe operation of your system.

Electrical Safety

Use the power cord supplied with your system.

Plug the power cord directly into a properly grounded electrical outlet. If you do not know if an outlet is grounded, ask an electrician to check the outlet.

Do not use a ground adapter plug to connect the system to an electrical outlet that does not have a ground connection terminal.

Do not use an extension cord or power strip.

Warning

Avoid the potential of electrical shock by ensuring that the system is properly grounded.

Electrical products may be hazardous if misused.

Do not place the system in an area where people might step on the power cord.

Do not place objects on the power cord.

Do not block the ventilation openings. These openings are provided to prevent overheating of the system.

Do not drop paper clips or staples into the system.

Warning

Do not push objects into slots or openings on the system. Making contact with a voltage point or shorting out a part could result in fire or electrical shock.

If you notice noises or odors that are not associated with your normal system operation:

1.

Turn off the system immediately

2.

Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet

3.

Call an authorized service representative to correct the problem.

Copyright © 2005 Xerox Corporation. All Rights Reserved.

A-1

The power cord is attached to the system as a plug-in device on the side of the system. If it is necessary to disconnect all electrical power from the system, disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet.

Warning

Do not remove the covers or guards that are fastened with screws unless you are installing optional equipment and are specifically instructed to do so. Power should be OFF when performing these installations. Disconnect the power cord when removing covers and guards for installing optional equipment. Except for user-installable options, there are no parts that you can maintain or service behind these covers.

The following are hazards to your safety:

The power cord is damaged or frayed.

Liquid is spilled into the system.

The system is exposed to water.

If any of these conditions occur:

1.

Turn off the system immediately.

2.

Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet.

3.

Call an authorized service representative.

Maintenance Safety

Do not attempt any maintenance procedure that is not specifically described in the documentation supplied with your system.

Do not use aerosol cleaners. The use of supplies that are not approved may cause poor performance and could create a hazardous condition.

Do not burn any consumables or routine maintenance items. For information on Xerox supplies recycling programs, go to www.xerox.com/gwa .

Operational Safety

Your system and supplies were designed and tested to meet strict safety requirements. These include safety agency examination, approval, and compliance with established environmental standards.

Your attention to the following safety guidelines helps to ensure the continued, safe operation of your system.

System Supplies

■ Use the supplies specifically designed for your system. The use of unsuitable materials may cause poor performance and a possible safety hazard.

WorkCentre® C2424 Copier-Printer

A-2

■ Follow all warnings and instructions marked on, or supplied with, the system, options and supplies.

Caution

Use of other than Genuine Xerox WorkCentre C2424 Solid Ink may affect print and copy quality and system reliability. It is the only ink designed and manufactured under strict quality controls by Xerox for specific use with this system. The Xerox Warranty, Service

Agreements, and Total Satisfaction Guarantee do not cover damage, malfunction, or degradation of performance caused by use of non-Xerox supplies or consumables, or the use of Xerox supplies not specified for this system.

Note

The Total Satisfaction Guarantee is available in the United States and Canada.

Coverage may vary outside these areas; please contact your local representative for details.

System Location

Place the system in a dust-free area within a temperature range of 50 degrees F to

90 degrees F (10 degrees C to 32 degrees C) and a relative humidity range of 10 percent to

80 percent.

Place the system in an area where there is adequate space for ventilation, operation, and servicing. The recommended minimal spacing is:

■ 30 cm (11.8 in.) above, measuring from the top of the document feeder

24 cm (9.5 in.) behind

10 cm (3.9 in.) on the left side of the system

37 cm (14.6 in.) on the right side of the system, to allow access to the maintenance unit and waste tray.

Do not block or cover the slots and openings on the system. The system may overheat without adequate ventilation.

For optimum performance, use the system at elevations below 2,438 m (8,000 ft.).

Do not place the system on a carpeted location such as a carpeted floor. Airborne carpet fibers can be pulled into the system and cause print- and copy-quality problems.

Do not place the system near a heat source.

Do not place the system in direct sunlight.

Do not place the system in line with the cold air flow from an air conditioning system.

Place the system on a level, solid non-vibrating surface with adequate strength for the weight of the system. It should be within 2 degrees of horizontal with all four feet in solid contact with the surface. The base system weight without any packaging materials is approximately 42 kg (93 lbs.).

WorkCentre® C2424 Copier-Printer

Moving the System

Caution

Parts of the system are hot. To avoid personal injury or damage to the system, allow the ink to solidify. Run the shut-down procedure to cool the system quickly. Wait at least

30 minutes for the system to cool completely before moving or packing it.

Always allow the system to cool before it is moved to avoid ink spills which can damage the system.

Use the shut-down procedure at the control panel ( Shut Down for Moving System ) for best results.

Never move the system if you receive a Power Down Error-Head not Parked message at the system’s control panel. This message means the system is not ready to be moved. If the printhead is not locked, the system can be damaged during shipment.

Always turn off the system using the power switch, located under the interface cover on the right side of the system, and unplug all cables and cords. Do not turn off the system by pulling the power cord or using a power-strip with an on/off switch.

Always secure the scanhead shipping restraint on the left side of the scanner to lock the scanhead before removing the scanner portion of the system. Shipping the scanner with the scanhead unlocked can damage the scanner.
