Regulatory Compliance Statements
Wireless Guidance
Low power, Radio LAN type devices (radio frequency (RF) wireless communication
devices), operating in the 2.4 GHz Band, may be present (embedded) in your printer
system. The following section is a general overview of considerations while operating
a wireless device.
Additional limitations, cautions, and concerns for specific countries are listed in the
specific country sections (or country group sections). The wireless devices in your
system are only qualified for use in the countries identified by the Radio Approval
Marks on the system rating label. If the country you will be using the wireless device
in, is not listed, please contact your local Radio Approval agency for requirements.
Wireless devices are closely regulated and use may not be allowed.
The power output of the wireless device or devices that may be embedded in your
printer is well below the RF exposure limits as known at this time. Because the
wireless devices (which may be embedded into your printer) emit less energy than is
allowed in radio frequency safety standards and recommendations, manufacturer
believes these devices are safe for use. Regardless of the power levels, care should
be taken to minimize human contact during normal operation.
As a general guideline, a separation of 20 cm (8 inches) between the wireless device
and the body, for use of a wireless device near the body (this does not include
11
extremities) is typical. This device should be used more than 20 cm (8 inches) from
the body when wireless devices are on and transmitting.
This transmitter must not be collocated or operation in conjunction with any other
antenna or transmitter.
Some circumstances require restrictions on wireless devices. Examples of common
restrictions are listed below:
Radio frequency wireless communication can interfere with equipment
on commercial aircraft. Current aviation regulations require wireless
devices to be turned off while traveling in an airplane. 802.11B (also
known as wireless Ethernet) and Bluetooth communication devices are
examples of devices that provide wireless communication.
In environments where the risk of interference to other devices or
services is harmful or perceived as harmful, the option to use a wireless
device may be restricted or eliminated. Airports, Hospitals, and Oxygen
or flammable gas laden atmospheres are limited examples where use of
wireless devices may be restricted or eliminated. When in environments
where you are uncertain of the sanction to use wireless devices, ask the
applicable authority for authorization prior to use or turning on the
wireless device.
Every country has different restrictions on the use of wireless devices.
Since your system is equipped with a wireless device, when traveling
between countries with your system, check with the local Radio Approval
authorities prior to any move or trip for any restrictions on the use of a
wireless device in the destination country.
If your system came equipped with an internal embedded wireless
device, do not operate the wireless device unless all covers and shields
are in place and the system is fully assembled.
Wireless devices are not user serviceable. Do not modify them in any
way. Modification to a wireless device will void the authorization to use
it. Please contact manufacturer for service.
Only use drivers approved for the country in which the device will be
used. See the manufacturer System Restoration Kit, or contact
manufacturer Technical Support for additional information.

Guidelines for Paper and Special Materials
When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other special
materials, 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 multi-part paper.
• Use only high-quality, copier grade paper for the best print
quality.
• Do not use paper with irregularities, such as tabs or staples.
• Do not attempt to load any tray while printing and never
overfill the tray. This could cause a paper jam.
• Avoid paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or a
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 180°C (356°F) for 0.1 seconds without
deteriorating. Do not use paper with a colored coating that
was added after the paper was produced.
• Preprinted forms must be printed with nonflammable, heatresistant ink that does not melt, vaporize, or release
hazardous emissions when subject to the printer’s fusing
temperature.
• Store paper in its ream wrapper until you are ready to use it.
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 paper away from moisture, direct sunlight or other
conditions that can cause it to wrinkle or curl.
NOTE: Do not use carbonless paper and tracing paper. They are
unstable at the fusing temperature and can give of fumes, or
cause damage to the printer.

USING PRINT MATERIALS
Using the Multi-purpose Tray
The Multi-purpose Tray is located on the right side of your
printer. It can be closed when you are not using it, making the
printer more compact.
3
Multi-purpose Tray
The Multi-purpose Tray can hold several sizes and types of
material, such as transparencies, cards and envelopes. You may
also want to use the Multi-purpose Tray for single page print jobs
on letterhead, colored paper for use as separator sheets, or
other special materials that you do not normally keep in the
paper tray. You can load approximately 100 sheets of plain
paper, 10 envelopes, 30 transparencies, 10 sheets of card stock
or 10 labels at a time.
• Load only one size of print material at a time in the
Multi-purpose Tray.
• To prevent paper jams, do not add paper when there is still
paper in the Multi-purpose Tray. This also applies to other
types of print materials.
• Print materials should be loaded face down with the top edge
going into the Multi-purpose Tray first and be placed in the
center of the tray.
To load print material in the Multi-purpose Tray:
1 Lower the Multi-purpose Tray and unfold the paper support
extension as shown.
USING PRINT MATERIALS
3.9
2 If you are using paper, flex or fan the edge of the paper
stack to separate the pages before loading.

5 When you print, configure the paper source to MP Tray, the
paper type to Envelope and the paper size in the software
application. For details, see page 4.7.
USING PRINT MATERIALS 3.15
Printing on Labels
• Only use labels recommended for laser printers.
• Verify that the labels’ adhesive material can tolerate a fusing
temperature of 180°C (356°F) for 0.1 seconds.
• Make sure that there is no exposed adhesive material
between the labels. Exposed areas can cause labels to peel
off during printing, which can cause paper jams. Exposed
adhesive can also cause damage to the printer components.
• Never print on the same sheet of labels more than once or
print on a partial sheet of labels.
• Do not use labels that are separating from the backing sheet
or are wrinkled or damaged in any way.
• To prevent labels from sticking together, do not let the printed
label sheets stack up as they are printed out.
To print on labels:
1 Open the Multi-purpose Tray and unfold the paper support.
2 Load labels only in the Multi-purpose Tray with the print
side down and the top, short edge in first. Adjust the guide
to fit the width of the labels.
3.16 USING PRINT MATERIALS
3 When you print, configure the paper source to MP Tray, the
paper type to Labels and the size in the software
application. For details, see page 4.7.

Printing on Transparencies
• When you print a color document do not use transparencies
with an attached backing sheet. This may cause print quality
problems.
• Only use transparencies recommended for use in laser
printers.
• Ensure that transparencies do not have torn edges and are
not wrinkled or curled.
• Hold the transparencies by the edges and avoid touching the
print side. Oils from your fingers can cause print quality
problems.
• Be careful not to leave fingerprints on or scratch the print
side.
• You should use the following paper type:
A4: 003R96002, Letter: 3R3108
NOTE: Before printing on
transparencies, make sure that
the output support is laid down.
USING PRINT MATERIALS 3.17
To print on transparencies:
1 Open Multi-purpose Tray and unfold the paper support.
2 Only load transparencies into the Multi-purpose Tray. They
must be loaded with the print side downwards and the
top with the white leading edge entering the printer
first. Adjust the guide to fit the width of the transparencies.

USING PRINT MATERIALS 3.19
Printing on Preprinted Paper
• Preprinted paper is paper that has some type of printing
placed on it before it is sent through the printer (paper that
has a preprinted logo at the top of the page, for example).
• Letterhead must be printed with heat-resistant ink that will
not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous emissions when
subjected to the printer’s fusing temperature of 180°C
(356°F) for 0.1 seconds.
• Ink on letterhead must be non-flammable and should not
adversely affect any printer rollers.
• Forms and letterhead should be sealed in moisture-proof
wrapping to prevent changes during storage.
• Before you load preprinted paper, such as forms and
letterhead, verify that the ink on the paper is dry. During the
fusing process, wet ink can come off of preprinted paper,
reducing the print quality.
To print on preprinted paper:
1 Open the Multi-purpose Tray and unfold the paper support.
2 Load letterhead only in the Multi-purpose Tray with the
print side down and the top, short edge, in first.
Adjust the guide to fit the width of the paper stack.

Printing on Card Stock or Custom-sized
Materials
• Postcards, 3.5in. by 5.5in. (index) cards and other customsized materials can be printed with your printer. The
minimum size is 90mm by 140mm (3.5in. by 5.5in.) and the
maximum size is 216mm by 356mm (8.5in. by 14in.).
• Always insert the short edge into the Multi-purpose Tray first.
If you want to print in landscape mode, make this selection
using your software. Inserting paper long edge first may
cause a paper jam.
• Do not load more than 10 cards into the Multi-purpose Tray at
a time.
• Do not print on material smaller than 90mm (3.5in.) wide or
140mm (5.5in.) long.
• Set margins at least 4.3mm away from the edges of the
material in the software application.
USING PRINT MATERIALS 3.21
To print on card stock:
1 Open the Multi-purpose Tray and unfold the paper support.
2 Load print material only in the Multi-purpose Tray with the
print side down and the short edge first. Slide the guide

Using Overlays
What is an Overlay?
Dear ABC
Regards
WORLD BEST
An overlay is text and/or images stored on the computer hard
disk drive (HDD) as a special file format that can be printed on
any document. Overlays are often used to take the place of
preprinted forms and letterhead paper. Rather than using
preprinted letterhead, you can create an overlay containing the
exact same information that is currently on your letterhead. To
print a letter with your company’s letterhead, you need only tell
the printer to print the letterhead overlay on your document.
Creating a New Page Overlay
To use a page overlay, you must create a new page overlay
containing your logo or image.
1 Create or open a document containing text or an image for
WORLD BEST
use in a new page overlay. Position the items exactly as you
wish them to appear when printed as an overlay. If needed,
save the file for later use.
2 When you change the print settings from your software
application, access the printer Properties. See page 4.3.

6.3
Managing the Toner Cartridges
Toner Cartridge Storage
To get the maximum results from the toner cartridge, keep the
following guidelines in mind:
• Do not remove the toner cartridges from their packages until
you are ready to use them.
• Do not refill the toner cartridges. The printer warranty
does not cover damage caused by using a refilled
cartridge.
• Store the toner cartridges in the same environment as the
printer.
• To prevent damage to the toner cartridges, do not expose
them to light for more than a few minutes.
Toner Cartridge Life Expectancy
The life of the toner cartridge depends on the amount of toner
that your print jobs require. When printing text at 5% coverage,
a new toner cartridge lasts an average of 7,000 pages for black
and 5,000 pages for each color. The starter toner cartridge
supplied with the printer lasts an average of 2,000 pages for
black and 1,500 pages for each color.
6.4
MAINTAINING YOUR PRINTER
Redistributing the Toner
When a toner cartridge is nearly empty, faded or light areas may
appear. Equally it is possible that colored images may have
incorrect colors due to incorrect mixing of the toner colors when
one of the colored toner cartridge is nearly empty. 'Ready
[Color] Low Toner' appears on the display. The printer can
continue to print using the current toner cartridge until the
control panel displays a message telling you to replace the
cartridge.
You may be able to temporarily improve the print quality by
redistributing the toner. The control panel display tells you which
color cartridge is low in toner.
1 Using the handle, completely open the left cover until it is at
right angles to the main frame and the toner cartridges are
ejected.

imaging unit.
3 Holding both sides of the toner cartridge, gently roll it from
side to side to redistribute the toner.
NOTE: If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth
and wash it in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric.

“Clearing Paper Jams” on page 7.7.
• Follow the procedures on page 3.4. Ensure that the adjustable
guides are positioned correctly.
• Do not overload the paper tray. Ensure that the paper is below
the paper limit mark on the inside wall of the tray.
• Do not remove the paper from the tray while printing.
• Flex, fan and straighten the paper before loading.
• Do not use creased, damp or highly curled paper.
• Do not mix paper types in the tray.
• Use only recommended print materials. See “Paper
Specifications” on page D.4.
• Ensure that the print side is facing down when loading paper
in the tray and in the Multi-purpose Tray.
SOLVING PROBLEMS 7.21

Solving Print Quality Problems
Dirt inside of the printer or improper paper loading may reduce
the print quality. See the table below to troubleshoot the
problem.
Problem
Solution
Light or faded
print
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 the Toner”
on page 6.5. If this does not improve the print quality, install a
new toner cartridge of faded color.
• The paper may not meet paper specifications (for example,
the paper is too moist or too rough). See “Paper
Specifications” on page D.4.
• A combination of faded or smeared defects may indicate that
the toner cartridge needs cleaning. See page 6.31.
• The surface of the LSU may be dirty. Clean the LSU. See
page 6.30.

• The transfer roller or the paper path may be dirty. See
“Cleaning the Inside of the Printer” on page 6.31.
If generally rounded, faded areas occur randomly on the page:
• A single sheet of paper may be defective. Try reprinting the
job.
• The moisture content of the paper is uneven or the paper has
moist spots on its surface. Try a different brand of paper. See
“Paper Specifications” on page D.4.
• The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing process can cause
some areas to reject toner. Try a different kind or brand of
paper.
• The toner cartridge may be defective. See “Vertical repetitive
defects” on the next page.
• If these steps do not correct the problems, contact a service
representative.

Solution
If black vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The imaging unit inside the printer has probably been
scratched. Install a new imaging unit.
If white vertical lines appear on the page:
• The Laser Scanner window has probably been contaminated,
clean the Laser Scanner window. Holding the end of the
cleaner, slide it in and out several times. See “Cleaning the
LSU Inside the Printer” on page 6.30.
If the amount of background shading becomes unacceptable,
the procedures below may fix the problem.
• Change to lighter weight pages. See “Paper Specifications” on
page D.4.
• Check the printer’s environment; very dry (low humidity) or
high humidity (higher than 80% RH) conditions can increase
the amount of background shading.
• Remove the old imaging unit and install a new one. See
“Replacing the Imaging Unit” on page 6.14.
Toner smear
• Clean the inside of the printer. See “Cleaning the Inside of the
Printer” on page 6.31
• Check the paper type and quality. See “Paper Specifications”
on page D.4.
• Remove the transfer belt and install a new one. See “Replacing
the Transfer Belt” on page 6.22.
Vertical repetitive
defects
If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of the page at
even intervals:
• Clean the inside of the printer. See “Cleaning the Inside of the
Printer” on page 6.31. After cleaning the inside of the printer,
if you still have the same problems, install a new toner
cartridge of defected color. See “Replacing the Toner
Cartridges” on page 6.8.
• Parts of the printer 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. Contact a service
representative.

Background scatter
Background scatter results from bits of toner distributed on the
printed page.
• The paper may be too damp. Try printing with a different batch
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 resolution through your software
application or the printer properties.
A
Misformed
characters
• If characters are improperly formed and producing hollow
images, the paper stock may be too slick. Try a different paper.
See “Paper Specifications” on page D.4.
• If characters are improperly formed and producing a wavy
effect, the scanner unit may need service. Verify that it also
occurs on a demo page. Refer to the Setup Guide. For service,
contact a service representative.
Page skew
• Check the paper type and quality. See “Paper Specifications”
on page D.4.
• Ensure that the paper or other material is loaded correctly and
the guides are not too tight or too loose against the paper
stack.

7.30 SOLVING PROBLEMS
Common Linux Problems
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
I can’t change settings in
the configuration tool.
You need to have administrator privileges to be able to
change global settings.
I am using the KDE
desktop but the
configuration tool and LLPR
won’t start.
You may not have the GTK libraries installed. These usually
come with most Linux distributions, but you may have to
install them manually. Refer to your distribution’s installation
manual for more details about installing additional packages.
I just installed this
package but can’t find
entries in the KDE/Gnome
menus.
Some versions of the KDE or GNOME desktop environments
may require that you restart your session for the changes to
take effect.
I get a “Some options are
not selected” error
message while editing the
printer settings.
Some printers have conflicting settings, meaning that some
settings for two options can’t be selected at the same time.
When you change a setting and the Printer Package detects
such a conflict, the conflicting option is changed to a “No
Choice” value. You have to choose an option that does not
conflict before being able to submit the changes.
I can’t make a printer the
system default.
In some conditions, it may not be possible to change the
default queue. This happens with some variants of LPRng,
especially on recent RedHat systems that use the “printconf”
database of queues.
When using printconf, the /etc./printcap file is
automatically refreshed from the database of printers
managed by the system (usually through the “printtool”
command), and the queues in /etc./printcap.local are
appended to the resulting file. The default queue in LPRng is
defined as the first queue in /etc./printcap, therefore it is
not possible for the Linux Printer Package to change the
default when some queues have otherwise been defined using
printtool.
LPD systems identify the default queue as the one named “lp”.
Thus, if there is already a queue by this name, and if it
doesn’t have any alias, then you won’t be able to change the
default. To work around this, you can either delete the queue
or rename it by manually editing the /etc./printcap file.
The N-up setting does not
work correctly for some of
my documents.
The N-up feature is achieved through post-processing of the
PostScript data that is being sent to the printing system.
However, such post-processing can only be adequately
achieved if the PostScript data conforms to the Adobe
Document Structing Conventions. Problems may arise when
using N-up and other features relying on post-processing if
the document being printed isn’t compliant.
SOLVING PROBLEMS 7.31
7
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
I am using BSD lpr
(Slackware, Debian, older
distributions) and some
options chosen in LLPR
don’t seem to take effect.
Legacy BSD lpr systems have a hard limitation on the length
of the option string that can be passed to the printing system.
As such, if you selected a number of different options, you
may exceed the length of the options and some of your
choices won’t be passed to the programs responsible for
implementing them. Try to select less options that deviate
from the defaults, to save on memory usage.
I am trying to print a
document in Landscape
mode, but it prints rotated
and cropped.
Most Unix applications that offer a Landscape orientation
option in their printing options will generate correct PostScript
code that should be printed as is. In that case, you need to
make sure that you leave the LLPR option to its default
Portrait setting, to avoid unwanted rotations of the page that
would result in a cropped output.
Some pages come out all
white (nothing is printed),
and I am using CUPS.
If the data being sent is in Encapsulated PostScript (EPS)
format, some earlier versions of CUPS (1.1.10 and before)
have a bug preventing them from being processed correctly.
When going through LLPR to print, the Printer Package will
work around this issue by converting the data to regular
PostScript. However, if your application bypasses LLPR and
feeds EPS data to CUPS, the document may not print
correctly.
I can’t print to a SMB
(Windows) printer.
To be able to configure and use SMB-shared printers (such as
printers shared on a Windows printer), you need to have a
correct installation of the SAMBA package that enables that
feature. The “smbclient” command should be available and
usable on your system.
My application seems to be
frozen while LLPR is
running.
Most Unix applications will expect a command like the regular
“lpr” command to be non-interactive and thus return
immediately. Since LLPR is waiting for user input before
passing the job on to the print spooler, very often the
application will wait for the process to return, and thus will
appear to be frozen (its windows won’t refresh). This is
normal and the application should resume functioning
correctly after the user exits LLPR.
How do I specify the IP
address of my SMB server?
It can be specified in the “Add Printer” dialogue of the
configuration tool, if you don’t use the CUPS printing system.
Unfortunately, CUPS currently doesn’t allow you to specify the
IP address of SMB printers, so you will have to be able to
browse the resource with Samba in order to be able to print.
Some documents come out
as white pages when
printing.
Some versions of CUPS, especially those shipped with
Mandrake Linux before the 8.1 release, have some known
bugs when processing the PostScript output from some
applications. Try upgrading to the latest version of CUPS (at
least 1.1.14). Some RPM packages for the most popular
distributions are provided as a convenience with this Linux
Printing Package.
7.32 SOLVING PROBLEMS
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
I have CUPS and some
options (such as N-up)
seem to be always enabled
even though I don’t choose
them in LLPR.
There may be some local options defined in your ~/
.lpoptions file, which are manipulated by the lpoptions
command. These options are always used if not overridden by
LLPR settings. To get rid of all options for a printer, run the
following command, replacing “printer” with the name of the
queue: lpoptions -x printer
I configured a printer to
print to a file, but I get
“Permission denied” errors.
Most printing systems will not run as the super-user but as a
special user (usually “lp”). Therefore, make sure that the file
you have chosen to print to is accessible to the user owning
the spooler daemon.
On my PCL (or GDI)
printer, I sometimes get
error messages printing
instead of my document.
Unfortunately, some Unix applications may generate noncompliant PostScript output that may not be supported by
Ghostscript, or even the printer itself in PostScript mode. You
can try to capture the output to a file and view the results
with Ghostscript (gv or ghostview will allow you to do so
interactively) and see if you get error messages. However,
since the application is at fault probably, contact your
software vendor to inform them of the issue.
Some color images come
out all black.
This is a known bug of Ghostscript (until GNU Ghostscript
version 7.05) when the base color space of the document is
indexed color space and it is converted through CIE color
space. Because Postscript uses CIE color space for Color
Matching System, you should upgrade Ghostscript on your
system at least GNU Ghostscript version 7.06 or later. You can
find the recent Ghostscript at www.ghostscript.com.

to communicate directly with each other. This is the default
operating mode for the print server.
If your network uses an Access Point, you must reconfigure
the operation mode to ‘InfraStructure’. ‘InfraStructure’ mode
allows both wireless and cabled computers to send files to the
printer through an Access Point.
If you select ‘Auto’, the print server selects the operation mode
automatically according to the network cable’s connection
each time it boots up. If the network cable is detected, the
print server enters ‘Ad-hoc’ mode; if not, enters
‘InfraStructure’ mode.
• Channel: This option is available in the ‘Ad-hoc’ mode only.
In most cases, you will not need to change this setting. The
print server will scan all available channels for the specified
network and will adapt its channel to the one detected.
Default setting is 10.
• Authentication: ‘Open System’ or ‘Shared Key’. The
Samsung print server is not configured for network
authentication (Open System). If required by your network,
the proper authentication method must be configured on the
print server.
• Encryption: No data Encryption, 64 bits, or 128 bits. Default
setting is No data Encryption. If your network uses WEP
encryption keys, you must configure the encryption keys. You
can configure up to four keys. The active key must match the
value and active key position (for example, Key 1) configured
on other wireless devices.

NOTES:
• Do not use letterhead paper printed with low-temperature inks,
such as those used in some types of thermography.
• Do not use raised or embossed letterhead.
• The printer uses heat and pressure to fuse toner to the paper.
Ensure that any colored paper or preprinted forms use inks that
are compatible with this fusing temperature (180°C or 356°F for
0.1 second).

Printer and Paper Storage Environment
Paper storage environmental conditions directly affect the feed
operation.
Ideally, the printer and paper storage environment should be at
or near room temperature, and not too dry or humid. Remember
that paper is hygroscopic; it absorbs and loses moisture rapidly.
Heat works with humidity to damage paper. Heat causes the
moisture in paper to evaporate, while cold causes it to condense
on the sheets. Heating systems and air conditioners remove
most of the humidity from a room. As paper is opened and used,
it loses moisture, causing streaks and smudging. Humid
weather or water coolers can cause the humidity to increase in
a room. As paper is opened and used it absorbs any excess
moisture, causing light print and dropouts. Also, as paper loses
and gains moisture it can become distorted. This can cause
paper jams.
Care should be taken not to purchase more paper than can be
used in a short time (about 3 months). Paper stored for long
periods may experience heat and moisture extremes, which can
cause damage. Planning is important to prevent damage to
large supplies of paper.
Unopened paper in sealed reams can remain stable for several
months before use. Opened packages of paper have more
potential for environment damage, especially if they are not
wrapped with a moisture-proof barrier.
The paper storage environment should be properly maintained
to ensure optimum printer performance. The required condition
is 20° to 24°C (68° to 75°F), with a relative humidity of 45% to
55%. The following guidelines should be considered when
evaluating the paper’s storage environment:
• Paper should be stored at or near room temperature.
• The air should not be too dry or too humid.
• The best way to store an opened ream of paper is to rewrap it
tightly in its moisture-proof wrapping. If the printer
environment is subject to extremes, unwrap only the amount
of paper to be used during the day’s operation to prevent
unwanted moisture changes.
D.8 SPECIFICATIONS
Envelopes
Envelope construction is critical. Envelope fold lines can vary
considerably, not only between manufacturers, but also within a
box from the same manufacturer. Successful printing on
envelopes depends upon the quality of the envelopes. When
selecting envelopes, consider the following components:
• Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should not exceed
90g/m2 (24lb) or jamming may occur.
• Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat with
less than 6mm (0.25in.) curl, and should not contain air.
• Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled, nicked, or
otherwise damaged.
• Temperature: You should use envelopes that are compatible
with the heat and pressure of the printer.
• Size: You should only use envelopes within the following size
ranges.
Minimum
Multi-purpose
Tray
90 X 140mm
(3.5 X 5.5in.)
Maximum
216 X 356mm
(8.5 X 14in.)
NOTES:
• Use only the Multi-purpose Tray to print envelopes.
• You may experience some paper jams when using any media
with a length less than 140mm(5.5in.). This may be caused by
paper that has been affected by environmental conditions. For
optimum performance, make sure you are storing and handling
the paper correctly. Please refer to “Printer and Paper Storage
Environment” on page D.8.
SPECIFICATIONS
D.9
D
Envelopes with Double Side Seams
Double side-seams construction has vertical seams at both ends
of the envelope rather than diagonal seams. This style may be
more likely to wrinkle. Be sure the seam extends all the way to
the corner of the envelope as illustrated below.
Correct
Incorrect
Envelopes with Adhesive Strips or Flaps
Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one
flap that folds over to seal must use adhesives compatible with
the heat and pressure in the printer. The extra flaps and strips
might cause wrinkling, creasing, or even jams and may even
damage the fuser.

The following gives typical address margins for a commercial
#10 or DL envelope.

NOTES:
• For best print quality, position margins no closer than 15mm
(0.6in.) from the edges of the envelope.
• Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s seams meet.
D.10 SPECIFICATIONS
Envelope Storage
Proper storage of envelopes helps contribute to print quality.
Envelopes should be stored flat. If air is trapped in an envelope,
creating an air bubble, then the envelope may wrinkle during
printing. See “Printing on Envelopes” on page 3.14.
Labels
CAUTIONS:
• To avoid damaging the printer, use only labels recommended for
laser printers.
• To prevent serious jams, always use the Multi-purpose Tray to
print labels and always use the rear output tray.
• Never print on the same sheet of labels more than once and
never print on a partial sheet of labels.
When selecting labels, consider the quality of each component:
• Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at 180°C
(356°F), the printer’s fusing temperature.
• Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing
between them. Labels can peel off sheets with spaces
between the labels, causing serious jams.
• Curl: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no more than
13mm (5in.) of curl in any direction.
• Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other
indications of separation.
See “Printing on Labels” on page 3.16.
Transparencies
Transparencies used in the printer must be able to withstand
180°C (356°F), the printer’s fusing temperature.
CAUTION: To avoid damaging the printer, use only transparencies
recommended for use in laser printers.
See “Printing on Transparencies” on page 3.17.
