Frequently Asked Questions About USB
Q
What is USB?
A
Universal Serial Bus (USB) makes it easy to connect devices to
your computer without having to open your PC. USB uses a
standard port and plug combination for connecting devices like
printers, modems, scanners, and digital cameras. It also offers
the benefit of being able to easily add, remove, and move
devices.
Because USB is a relatively new technology, we recommended
using a parallel printing connection. However, USB is an option
to customers who want to print from Windows 98/Me/2000/XP,
Macintosh using a USB cable. If your computer’s USB port is
enabled and properly setup, you can connect your printer to it
or to a chain of USB devices via a USB cable.
Q
How can I determine if my computer’s USB port is enabled?
A
1 In Windows 98/Me, select Start ➝ Settings ➝ Control Panel.
2 Double-click the System icon.
3 Click the Device Manager tab.
4 Click the plus (+) icon before the Universal Serial Bus
Controller item.
If you see a USB host controller and a USB root hub listed, USB is
properly enabled. If you have multiple hubs on the USB chain, try
connecting your printer to a different hub or to another USB
device. Also, make sure the cable connections are firm. (USB hubs
are hardware devices into which you can plug multiple USB
cables.)
If you do not see these devices listed, refer to your computer’s
documentation or contact the manufacturer for more information
on enabling and setting up USB. Remember, you can always use a
parallel cable to connect your printer’s parallel port to your
computer. (If you decide to switch to a parallel cable connection,
you may need to remove and reinstall the printer software. )
2.26 SETTING UP YOUR PRINTER
Installing USB Driver
Q
Can other users on my USB chain print to my ML-1450 printer?
A
Yes. Windows 98/Me/2000/XP allows you to “share” your
printer using software settings on your computer. After others
on the USB chain have installed the printer software for your
specific printer, they can print to your shared printer.
Q
After I install my printer, why isn’t my ML-1450 printer assigned to
an LPT printer port in the Print dialog box of my software
application?
A
USB uses a different naming convention for USB devices. After
the printer has been installed, you see SSUSB:(your printer
name) instead of LPT.
Q
How can I increase printing speed and quality?
A
When operated on a USB chain, your printer may become
slower if other USB devices are being used while you’re
printing. For optimal print performance, avoid using other
devices in the USB chain while printing.

CHAPTER
This chapter will help you understand what kind of paper
you can use with the ML-1450 series printer and how to
properly load paper in the different paper trays for the
best print quality.
Topics included in this chapter are:
◆ Choosing Paper and Other Media
◆ Selecting the Output Tray
◆ Loading Paper
◆ Printing on Envelopes
◆ Printing on Labels
◆ Printing on Transparencies
◆ Printing on Preprinted Paper
◆ Printing on Card Stock or Custom-sized Media
Choosing Paper and Other Media
You can print on a variety of print media, such as plain paper,
envelopes, labels, transparencies, card stocks and so on. See
“Paper Specifications” on page A.2. To get the best possible
print quality, use only high-quality copier-grade paper.
When you choose print media, consider the following:
• Desired outcome: The paper you choose should be
appropriate for the project.
• Size: You can use any size paper that fits easily within the
paper adjusters of the paper tray.
• Weight : Your printer supports paper weight as follows:
• 16~28 lbs bond for Tray 1 or optional Tray 2
• 16~43 lbs bond for Multi-Purpose Tray
• Brightness: Some papers are whiter than others and
produce sharper, more vibrant images.
• Surface smoothness: The smoothness of the paper affects
how crisp the printing looks on the paper.
• Opacity: Opacity refers to the degree to which printing on
one side of the paper shows through the other side. Use
paper high in opacity (or thicker paper) for two-sided
(duplex) printing.
Always test a sample of paper before purchasing large
quantities.
CAUTION: Using media that does not confirm to the specification
listed in the paper specification can cause problems that may
require service. This service is not covered by the warranty or
service agreements.

4.2 PRINT MEDIA
Choosing Paper and Other Media
Paper Guidelines
When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other special
media, keep these guidelines in mind:
• Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper
can cause paper jams and poor print quality.
• Use cut-sheet paper only. You cannot use multi-part paper.
• Use only high-quality, copier grade paper.
• Do not use paper that has been already printed on or that
has been fed through a photocopier.
• Do not use paper with irregularities, such as tabs or
staples.
• Do not attempt to load any tray during printing and never
overfill the tray. This could cause a paper jam.
• Avoid paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or
texture that is too smooth or too rough.
• Colored paper should be of the same high quality as white
photocopy paper. The pigments must withstand the printer’s
fusing temperature of 400°F (205°C) for 0.1 second without
deterioration. Do not use paper with a colored coating that
was added after the paper was produced.
• Preprinted forms must be printed with nonflammable, heatresistant ink that will not melt, vaporize, or release
hazardous emissions when subjected to the printer’s
approximately 400°F (205°C) fusing temperature for 0.1
second.
• Store paper in its ream wrapper until it is ready to use.
Place cartons on pallets or shelves, not on the floor.
• Do not place heavy objects on top of the paper, whether it
is packaged or unpackaged.
• Keep paper away from moisture, direct sunlight or other
conditions that can cause it to wrinkle or curl.
PRINT MEDIA 4.3
Selecting the Output Tray
The printer has two output locations: the rear output tray and the top output tray.
To use the top output tray, be sure the rear output tray is closed. To use the rear output tray,
open it.
• If paper coming out of the top output tray has problems, such as excessive curl, try
printing to the rear output tray.
• To avoid paper jams, do not open or close the rear output tray while the printer is
printing.
Printing to the Top Output Tray (Face down)
The top output tray collects paper face-down, in
correct order. The top output tray should be used
for most print jobs and is recommended for printing
the following:
• over 250 sheets of paper, continuously

paper lighter than 16 lb (60 g/m2) or
heavier than 28 lb (105 g/m2)
• transparencies:
Note: Some special transparencies may have stacking
problem by curl. In that case, please use the face down tray.
Selecting the Output Tray
To open the rear output tray:
1
Open the rear door by pulling it down.
The cover functions as the output tray.
2
Pull the extender to extend the output
tray to its full-length position.
This will allow the tray to hold longer
paper.
3
If you do not want to stack the printed
pages on the rear output tray, slide the
extender back into place and close the
tray. The pages will then stack on the
top output tray.
Note: The capacity of the rear output tray is
the same as that of the Multi-Purpose Tray. If
the tray is overloaded with printed pages, it
may fall from the printer. Remove the pages
so that the tray is not overloaded.
PRINT MEDIA 4.5
Loading Paper
Proper paper loading helps to prevent paper jams and ensure
trouble-free printing. Do not remove paper tray(s) while a job
is printing. Doing so may cause a paper jam.
The paper level indicator on the front of the paper tray(s)
shows the amount of paper currently left in the tray. When the
tray is empty, the indicator turns red.

Loading Paper
Using the Multi-Purpose Tray
The Multi-Purpose Tray is located in the front of your printer.
It can be closed when you are not using it, making the printer
more compact. The Multi-Purpose Tray can hold several sizes
and types of paper, such as transparencies, cards, and
envelopes. You may also want to use the Multi-Purpose Tray
for single page print jobs on letterheads, colored paper for use
as separator sheets, or other special paper that you do not
normally keep in the paper tray.
You can load approximately 100 sheets of paper, 10 envelopes,
20 transparencies, 10 card stocks or 25 labels at a time.
When you print from the Multi-Purpose Tray, you must select
Multi-Purpose Tray for Paper Source from your software
application, and then select the paper size and type from the
software application for the paper you have loaded.
See page 5.3.
• Load only one size of print media at a time in the MultiPurpose 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 media should be loaded face up with the top of the
print media going into the Multi-Purpose Tray first and be
placed against the left edge of the tray.
• Do not place objects on the Multi-Purpose Tray. Also avoid
pressing down or applying excessive force on it.

Tray and the rear output tray.
PRINT MEDIA 4.13
Printing on Labels
Guidelines
• Only use labels recommended for laser printers.
• Do not load more than 25 labels into the Multi-Purpose Tray at a time.
• Verify that the labels’ adhesive material can tolerate fusing temperature of 200°C
(392°F) for 0.1 second.
• 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 printer components.
• Do not feed a sheet of labels through the printer more than once. The adhesive backing
is designed for one pass through the printer.
• Do not use labels that are wrinkled, bubbled, separated from the backing sheet, or
damaged in any way.
1
Open the Multi-Purpose Tray and the
rear output tray.
2
Load labels with print side up, and
against the left edge of the tray. Adjust
the guide to fit the width of the labels.
3
When you print on labels, configure the
paper source, type and size in the
software application. For details, see
page 5.3.
Note: To prevent them from sticking
together, remove label sheet from the
output tray as they are printed out.
4.14 PRINT MEDIA
Printing on Transparencies
Guidelines
• Only use transparencies recommended for use in laser printers.
• Do not load more than 20 transparencies into the Multi-Purpose Tray at a time.
• Make sure that the transparencies are not wrinkled or curled, and that they do not have
any torn edge.
• Hold the transparencies by the edges and avoid touching the print side. Oils from your
fingers that are deposited on the transparency can cause print quality problems.
• Be careful not to scratch or leave fingerprints on the print side.
1
Open the Multi-Purpose Tray and pull
the extender out of its full-length
position.
2
Load transparencies with print side
up, and the top with the adhesive
strip entering the printer first.
Adjust the guide to fit the width of the
transparencies.
3
When you print on transparencies,
configure the paper source, type and
size in the software application. For
details, see page 5.3.
Notes:
• To prevent transparencies from sticking
together, remove them from the output
tray as they are printed.
• Place transparencies on a flat surface
after removing them from the printer.
PRINT MEDIA 4.15
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).
Guidelines
• Letterheads 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 400°F
(205°C) for 0.1 second.
• Ink on letterheads must be non-flammable and should not adversely affect any printer
rollers.
• Forms and letterheads should be sealed in a moisture-proof wrapping to prevent changes
during storage.
• Before you load preprinted paper as forms and letterheads, verify that the ink on the
paper is dry. During the fusing process, wet ink can come off preprinted paper.

Using Page Overlay
What is an Overlay?
Dear ABC
Regards
An overlay is text and/or images stored in the computer HDD
as a special file format that can be printed on any document
you choose. Overlays are often used to take the place of
preprinted forms and letterhead paper. Rather than using
preprinted letterhead, for example, you can create an overlay
containing the exact same information that is currently on
your letterhead. Then when you want to print a letter with
your company’s letterhead, you do not need to load preprinted
letterhead paper in the printer. You need only to tell the
printer to print the letterhead overlay on your document.

6 Maintaining
CHAPTER
Your Printer
This chapter provides suggestions for high-quality and
economical printing and information for maintaining the toner
cartridge and the printer.
Topics included in this chapter are:
◆ Maintaining Toner Cartridge
◆ Cleaning the Printer
Maintaining Toner Cartridge
Toner cartridge
storage
To get the most from the toner cartridge, keep the following
guidelines in your mind.
• Do not remove the toner cartridge from its package until you
are ready to use it. The shelf life of a cartridge in an unopened
package is approximately 2 years. The shelf life of a cartridge
in an opened package is approximately 6 months.
• Do not refill toner cartridges. The printer warranty does not
cover damage caused by using a refilled cartridge.
• Store toner cartridges in the same environment as the printer.
• Do not remove a toner cartridge from the printer except to
replace it, clean it or clear a paper jam. Replace the cartridge
immediately.
• To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it 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 print jobs require. When printing text at 5 % coverage, a
new toner cartridge lasts an average of 6,000 pages. (But, the
toner cartridge supplied with the printer lasts an average of
3,000 pages.)
Recycling toner
cartridge
After you install a new toner cartridge (see page 2.3), follow the
instructions included in the toner cartridge box to recycle the old
cartridge.
Saving toner
To save toner, press the Toner Save button on the printer
control panel. The button will be lit. You can also enable the
Toner Save Mode in your printer properties. Refer to “Using
Toner Save Mode” on page 5.6. Selecting this option will expand
the life of the toner cartridge and reduce your cost per page, but
will reduce print quality.
MAINTAINING YOUR PRINTER 6.1
Toner Cartridge
Redistributing Toner
When toner is low, faded or light areas may appear on a printed page. You may be able to
temporarily improve print quality by redistributing the toner. The following procedures may
allow you to finish the current print job before replacing the toner cartridge.
1
Open the top cover.
2
Remove the toner cartridge from the
printer.
CAUTIONS:
• Avoid reaching too far into the printer.
The fusing area may be hot.
• To prevent damage to the toner
cartridge, do not expose it to light for
more than a few minutes.
3
Gently shake the toner cartridge from
side to side 5 or 6 times to redistribute
the toner.
Note: If the toner gets on your clothing,
wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash
clothing in cold water. Hot water sets
toner into fabric.
6.2 MAINTAINING YOUR PRINTER
Toner Cartridge
4
Reinsert the toner cartridge into the
printer. Be sure that the toner cartridge
is firmly in its place.
5
Firmly close the cover.
If the print remains light
Remove the old cartridge and install a
new toner cartridge. See “Install the
Toner Cartridge” on page 2.3.
MAINTAINING YOUR PRINTER 6.3
Cleaning the Printer
To maintain print quality, follow the cleaning procedures below every time the toner cartridge
is replaced or whenever print quality problems occur. As much as possible, keep the printer
free from dust and debris.
Notes:
• Do not use ammonia-based cleaners or volatile solvents such as thinner, on or around the printer.
These can damage the printer.
• While cleaning the inside of the printer, be careful not to touch the transfer roller (located
underneath the toner cartridge ). The oil from your hands on the roller can cause print quality
problems.
Cleaning the Outside
Wipe the outside surface of the printer with a soft, clean, lintfree cloth. You can dampen the cloth slightly with water, but be
careful not to be let any water drip onto the printer or inside of
it.
Cleaning the Inside
During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles
can accumulate inside the printer. Over time, this buildup can
cause print quality problems such as toner specks or smearing.
Cleaning inside the printer will eliminate or reduce these
problems.
Cleaning inside the 1
printer
Turn the printer off and unplug the power cord, then wait for
the printer to cool.
2 Open the top cover and remove the toner cartridge.
Note: To prevent damage to
the toner cartridge, do not
expose it to light for more
than a few minutes. Cover it
with a piece of paper, if
necessary. Also, do not
touch the black transfer
roller inside the printer. By
doing so, you can damage

SPECIFICATIONS A.5
Paper Specifications
Printer and Paper Storage Environment
Ideally, the printer and paper storage environment should be
at or near room temperature, and not too dry or humid.
Remember that paper 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 distort. This can cause
paper jams.
As a result, paper storage and handling are as important as
the paper-making process itself. Paper storage environmental
conditions directly affect the feed operation.
Care should be taken not to purchase more paper than can be
easily 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 a large supply 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 helpful 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 (due to the
hygroscopic properties of paper).
• 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.
A.6 SPECIFICATIONS
Paper 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
90 g/m2 (24 lb) or jamming may occur.
• Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat with
less than 6 mm (0.25 in.) 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
Maximum
Multi-Purpose
Tray
90 X 148 mm
(3.5 X 5.83 in.)
216 X 356 mm

Optional Tray 2
148 X 210 mm
(5.83 X 8.3 in.)
216 X 356 mm
(8.5 X 14 in.)
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 148 mm (5.83 in.). 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 A.6.
SPECIFICATIONS A.7
Paper Specifications
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
Envelope Margins
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.
Type of Address
Minimum
Maximum
Return address
15 mm (0.6 in.)
51 mm (2 in.)
Delivery address
51 mm (2 in.)
89 mm (3.5 in.)
Notes:
• For best print quality, position margins no closer than 15 mm
(0.6 in.) from the edges of the envelope.
• Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s seams meet.
Envelope Storage
A.8 SPECIFICATIONS
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 4.12.
Paper Specifications
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
200 °C (392 °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
13 mm (.5 in.) of curl in any direction.
• Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other
indications of separation.
See “Printing on Labels” on page 4.14.
Transparencies
Transparencies used in the printer must be able to withstand
200 °C (392 °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 4.15.

F Printer Options
Your printer is a full-featured laser printer that has been
optimized to meet most of your printing needs. Recognizing
that each user may have different requirements, however,
Samsung makes several options available to enhance the
printer’s capabilities.
This appendix provides information on the following topics:
◆ Precautions
◆ Memory and PostScript SIMMs
◆ Network Interface Card

Precautions
DISCONNECT THE POWER CORD:
Never remove the printer control board while the printer is
plugged in.
To avoid the possibility of electrical shock, always disconnect the
power cord when installing or removing ANY internal or external
printer option.
DISCHARGE STATIC ELECTRICITY:
The control board and internal printer options (Memory SIMM,
PS SIMM, Network interface) are sensitive to static electricity.
Before installing or removing an internal option, discharge static
electricity from your body by touching something metal, such as
the metal back plate on any device plugged into a grounded
power source. If you walk round before finishing the installation,
discharge any static electricity once again.
PRINTER OPTIONS F.1
Memory and PostScript SIMMs
Additional printer memory and the PostScript option are provided on SIMMs (single in-line
memory modules). This procedure is applicable to either option.
Notes:
• Since PostScript setting requires 12 MB of printer memory and the ML-1450 comes with
4 MB standard, installation of the PS SIMM requires installation of a 8 MB SIMM memory as well.
• ML-1451N has 16 MB RAM standard, so additional memory is not required to install option PS
SIMM.
1
Turn the printer power off and unplug
all cables from the printer.
2
Remove the two screws on the rear of
the printer, then remove the control
board cover.
