REPLACING THE FITTED PLUG (FOR UK ONLY)
Important
The mains lead for this machine is fitted with a standard (BS 1363) 13 amp plug and has a 13 amp fuse. When you change or examine the
fuse, you must re-fit the correct 13 amp fuse. You then need to replace the fuse cover. If you have lost the fuse cover, do not use the plug until
you have another fuse cover.
The 13 amp plug is the most widely used type in the UK and should be suitable. However, some buildings (mainly old ones) do not have normal
13 amp plug sockets. You need to buy a suitable plug adaptor. Do not remove the moulded plug.
If you cut off the moulded plug, get rid of it straight away.
You cannot rewire the plug and you may receive an electric shock if you plug it into a socket.
Important warning:
You must earth this machine.
The wires in the mains lead have the following color code:
• Green and Yellow : Earth
• Blue : Neutral
• Brown : Live
If the wires in the mains lead do not match the colors marked in your plug, do the following:
You must connect the green and yellow wire to the pin marked by the letter “E” or by the safety ‘Earth symbol’ or colored green and yellow or
green.
You must connect the blue wire to the pin which is marked with the letter “N” or colored black.
You must connect the brown wire to the pin which is marked with the letter “L” or colored red.
You must have a 13 amp fuse in the plug, adaptor, or at the distribution board.

SELECTING PRINT MEDIA
CHANGING THE TRAY SIZE
You can print on a variety of print media, such as plain paper, envelopes,
labels, and transparencies. Always use print media that meet the guidelines
for use with your machine.
The tray is preset to Letter or A4 size, depending on your country. To
change the size, you need to adjust the paper guides.
Guidelines to select the print media
1
Print media that does not meet the guidelines outlined in this user’s guide
may cause the following problems:
• Poor print quality
• Increased paper jams
• Premature wear on the machine.
Properties, such as weight, composition, grain, and moisture content, are
important factors that affect the machine’s performance and the output
quality. When you choose print materials, consider the following:
• The type, size and weight of the print media for your machine are
described in print media specifications. (See "Print media specifications"
on page 82.)
• Desired outcome: The print media you choose should be appropriate for
your project.
• Brightness: Some print media are whiter than others and produce
sharper, more vibrant images.
• Surface smoothness: The smoothness of the print media affects how
crisp the printing looks on the paper.

Media and tray_ 39
Envelope
Successful printing on envelopes depends upon the quality of the
envelopes.
To print an envelope, place it flap side down with the stamp area on the
bottom right side.
•
•
check your machine’s specification. (See "General specifications" on
page 80.) The extra flaps and strips might cause wrinkling, creasing, or
jams, and may even damage the fuser.
For the best print quality, position margins no closer than 15 mm from
the edges of the envelope.
Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s seams meet.
Transparency
To avoid damaging the machine, use only transparencies designed for use
in laser printers.
If envelopes are printed out with wrinkles, crease or black bold lines, open
the rear cover and pull down the pressure lever on the right side about 90
degrees and try printing again. Keep the rear cover opened during printing.

When selecting envelopes, consider the following factors:
- Weight : The weight of the envelope paper should not exceed
90 g/m2 otherwise, jam may occur.
- Construction : Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat with less
than 6 mm curl, and should not contain air.
- Condition : Envelopes should not be wrinkled, nicked, nor
damaged.
- Temperature : Use envelopes that are compatible with the heat and
pressure of the machine during operation.
Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp-and well-creased folds.
Do not use stamped envelopes.
Do not use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows, coated lining,
self-adhesive seals, or other synthetic materials.
Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes.
Be sure the seam at both ends of the envelope extends all the way to
the corner of the envelope.

•
•
Transparencies used in the machine must be able to withstand
machine’s fusing temperature.
Place them on a flat surface after removing them from the machine.
Do not leave unused transparencies in the paper tray for long periods of
time. Dust and dirt may accumulate on them, resulting in spotty printing.
To avoid smudging caused by fingerprints, handle them carefully.
To avoid fading, do not expose printed transparencies to prolonged
sunlight.
Ensure that transparencies are not wrinkled, curled, or have any torn
edges.
Do not use transparencies that separates from the backing sheet.
To prevent transparencies from sticking to each other, do not let the
printed sheets stack up as they are begin printed out.
Recommended media: Transparency for a color laser printer by Xerox,
such as 3R 91331(A4), 3R 2780(Letter)
Labels
To avoid damaging the machine, use only labels designed for use in laser
machines.
•
When selecting labels, consider the following factors:
- Adhesives : The adhesive material should be stable at your
machine’s fusing temperature. Check your machine’s specification to
view the fusing temperature. (See "General specifications" on
page 80.)
- Arrangement : Only use labels with no exposed backing between
them. Labels can peel off sheets that have spaces between the
labels, causing serious jams.
- Curl : Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no more than 13 mm
of curl in any direction.
- Condition : Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other

indications of separation.
Make sure that there is no exposed adhesive material between labels.
Exposed areas can cause labels to peel off during printing, which can
cause paper jams. Exposed adhesive can also cause damage to
machine components.
Do not run a sheet of labels through the machine more than once. The
adhesive backing is designed for only a single pass through the
machine.
Do not use labels that are separating from the backing sheet or are
wrinkled, bubbled, or otherwise damaged.
When loading preprinted paper, printed side should be facing down with
an uncurled edge at the front. If you experience problems with paper
feed, turn the paper around. Note that print quality is not guaranteed.

reduces these problems.
CLEANING A MACHINE
If printing quality problems occur or if you use your machine in a dusty
enviroment, you need to clean your machine regularly to keep the best
printing condition and use your machine longer.

1. Turn the machine off and unplug the power cord. Wait for the machine to
cool down.
2. Open the front cover and pull the toner cartridge out. Set it on a clean
flat surface
•
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.
• Do not touch the green surface underside of the toner
cartridge. Use the handle on the cartridge to avoid touching
this area.
3. With a dry, lint-free cloth, wipe away any dust and spilled toner from the
toner cartridge area.
While cleaning the inside of the machine, be careful not to damage
the transfer roller or any other inside parts. Do not use solvents
such as benzene or thinner to clean. Printing quality problems can
occur and cause damage to the machine.
4. Locate the long strip of glass (LSU) inside the top of the cartridge
compartment and gently swab the glass to see if dirt turns the white
cotton black.
5. Reinsert the toner cartridge and close the front cover.
6. Plug in the power cord and turn the machine on.
STORING THE TONER CARTRIDGE
Toner cartridges contain components that are sensitive to light,
temperature, and humidity. Samsung suggests users follow the
recommendations to ensure the optimum performance, highest quality, and
longest life from your new Samsung toner cartridge.
Store this cartridge in the same environment as the printer it will be used in;
this should be in controlled office temperature and humidity conditions. The
toner cartridge should remain in its original, unopened package until
installation – If original packaging is not available, cover the top opening of
the cartridge with paper and store in a dark cabinet.
Opening the cartridge package prior to use dramatically shortens its useful
shelf and operating life. Do not store on the floor. If the toner cartridge is
removed from the printer, always store the cartridge:
• Inside the protective bag from the original package.
• Correct side up in a horizontal position (not standing on end).
• Do not store consumables in;
- Temperature greater than 40°C (104°F).
- Humidity range less than 20% and not greater than 80%.
- An environment with extreme changes in humidity or temperature.
- Direct sunlight or room light.
- Dusty places.
- A car for a long period of time.
- An environment where corrosive gases are present.
- An environment with salty air.
Handling instructions
•
•
•
Do not touch the surface of the photosensitive drum in the cartridge.
Do not expose the cartridge to unnecessary vibrations or shock.
Never manually rotate the drum, especially in the reverse direction; this
can cause internal damage and toner spillage.
Use of non-Samsung and refilled toner cartridge
Samsung Electronics does not recommend or approve the use of
non-Samsung brand toner cartridges in your printer including generic, store
brand, refilled, or remanufactured toner cartridges.
Samsung’s printer warranty does not cover damage to the machine
caused by the use of a refilled, remanufactured, or non-Samsung
Maintenance_ 62
brand toner cartridge.
Estimated cartridge life
Estimated cartridge life (the life of the toner cartridge yield) depends on the
amount of toner that print jobs require. The actual print-out number may
vary depending on the print density of the pages you print on, operating
environment, printing interval, media type, and/or media size. For example,
if you print a lot of graphics, the consumption of the toner is high and you
may need to change the cartridge more often.
TIPS FOR MOVING & STORING YOUR MACHINE
•
•
When moving the machine, do not tilt or turn it upside down. Otherwise,
the inside of the machine may be contaminated by toner, which can
cause damage to the machine or bad print quality.
When moving the machine, make sure at least two people are holding
the machine securely.

When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life:
• White streaks or light printing occurs.
• Toner Low. ReplaceToner appears on the display.
• The Status LED blinks red.
If this happens, you can temporarily improve print quality by redistributing
the remaining toner in the cartridge. In some cases, white streaks or light
printing will still occur even after you have redistributed the toner.
1. Open the front cover.
2. Pull the toner cartridge out.
5. Close the front cover. Ensure that the cover is securely closed.
TIPS FOR AVOIDING PAPER CURLS
1. Open the rear cover.
2. Pull down the pressure lever on each side about 30 degrees.
3. Thoroughly roll the cartridge five or six times to distribute the toner
evenly inside the cartridge.
If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash
clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric.
Do not touch the green underside of the toner cartridge. Use the
handle on the cartridge to avoid touching this area.
4. Hold the toner cartridge by the handle and slowly insert the cartridge into
the opening in the machine.
Tabs on the sides of the cartridge and corresponding grooves within the
machine will guide the cartridge into the correct position until it locks into

TIPS FOR AVOIDING PAPER JAMS
3. Remove the jammed paper by gently pulling it straight out.
By selecting the correct media types, most paper jams can be avoided.
When a paper jam occurs, refer to the next guidelines.
• Ensure that the adjustable guides are positioned correctly. (See
"Loading paper in the tray" on page 38.)
Do not overload the tray. Ensure that the paper level is below the paper
capacity mark on the inside of the tray.
• Do not remove paper from the tray while your machine is printing.
• Flex, fan, and straighten paper before loading.
• Do not use creased, damp, or highly curled paper.
• Do not mix paper types in a tray.
• Use only recommended print media. (See "Setting the paper size and
type" on page 41.)
• Ensure that the recommended side of the print media is facing down in
the tray, or facing up in the multi-purpose tray.
• If paper jams occur frequently when you print on A5/B5-sized paper:
Load the paper into the tray with the long edge facing the front of the
tray. If load the paper this way, printing both sides of the paper (Duplex)
is not supported.
If the paper does not move when you pull, or if you do not see the paper
in this area, check the fuser area around the toner cartridge. (See
"Inside the machine" on page 66.)
4. Insert tray 1 back into the machine until it snaps into place. Printing
automatically resumes.

quality, install a new toner cart
The paper may not meet paper specifications;
for example, the paper may be too moist or
rough. (See "Print media specifications" on
page 82.)
If the entire page is light, the print resolution
setting is too low or the toner save mode is
on. Adjust the print resolution and turn the
toner save mode off. See the help screen of
the printer driver.
A combination of faded or smeared defects
may indicate that the toner cartridge needs
cleaning. (See "Cleaning the inside" on

SUGGESTED SOLUTIONS
CONDITION
If white spots appear on the page:
• The paper is too rough and a lot of dirt from a
paper falls to the inner devices within the
machine, so the transfer roller may be dirty.
Clean the inside of your machine. (See
"Cleaning the inside" on page 61.).
• The paper path may need cleaning. (See
"Cleaning the inside" on page 61.)
If black vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The surface (drum part) of the toner
cartridge inside the machine has probably
been scratched. Remove the toner cartridge
and install a new one. (See "Replacing the
toner cartridge" on page 78.)
If white vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The surface of the LSU part inside the
machine may be dirty. (See "Cleaning the

If the amount of background shading becomes
unacceptable:
• Change to a lighter weight paper. (See "Print
media specifications" on page 82.)
• Check the environmental conditions: very
dry conditions or a high level of humidity
(higher than 80% RH) can increase the
amount of background shading.
• Remove the old toner cartridge and, install a
new one. (See "Replacing the toner
cartridge" on page 78.)
If toner smears on the page:
• Clean the inside of the machine. (See
"Cleaning the inside" on page 61.)

Background
scatter
A
SUGGESTED SOLUTIONS
Background scatter results from bits of toner
randomly 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 in Printing Preferences. (See
"Opening Printing Preferences" on page 44.)

It is a known problem that occurs when a color
machine is used on version 8.51 or earlier of
Ghostscript, 64-bit Linux OS, and has been
reported to bugs.ghostscript.com as Ghostscript
Bug 688252.The problem is solved in AFPL
Ghostscript v. 8.52 or above. Download the
latest version of AFPL Ghostscript from
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ghostscript/ and
install it to solve this problem.
I encounter error
“Cannot open port
device file” when
printing a document.
“File in Use”
message appears
during installation.
Exit all software applications. Remove all
software from the startup group, then restart
Windows. Reinstall the printer driver.
Avoid changing print job parameters (via LPR
GUI, for example) while a print job is in progress.
Known versions of CUPS server break the print
job whenever print options are changed and
then try to restart the job from the beginning.
Since Unified Linux Driver locks the port while
printing, the abrupt termination of the driver
keeps the port locked and unavailable for
subsequent print jobs. If this situation occurs, try
to release the port by selecting Release port in
Port configuration window.
“General Protection
Fault”, “Exception
OE”, “Spool 32”, or
“Illegal Operation”
messages appear.
Close all other applications, reboot Windows
and try printing again.
Refer to Linux User’s Guide that came with your computer for further
information on Linux error messages.
“Fail To Print”, “A
printer timeout error
occurred” messages
appear.
These messages may appear during printing.
Just keep waiting until the machine finishes
printing. If the message appears in ready mode
or after printing has been completed, check the
connection and/or whether an error has
occurred.

REPLACING THE TONER CARTRIDGE
place completely.
When the toner cartridge is empty:
• A message informing user to change the toner cartridge appears on the
display.
• The machine stops printing.
At this stage, the toner cartridge needs to be replaced. Check the type of the
toner cartridge for your machine. (See "Available supplies" on page 77.)
1. Open the front cover.
2. Pull the toner cartridge out.
7. Close the front cover. Make sure that the cover is securely closed.
NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS TO TAKE WHEN
INSTALLING ACCESSORIES
•
3. Remove the new toner cartridge from its bag.
•
4. Slowly shake the cartridge five or six times to distribute the toner evenly
inside the cartridge. It will assure maximum copies per cartridge.
•
Disconnect the power cord.
Never remove the control board cover while the power is turned on.
To avoid the possibility of an electrical shock, always disconnect the
power cord when installing or removing ANY internal or external
accessories.
Discharge static electricity.
The control board and internal accessories (network interface card or
memory module) are sensitive to static electricity. Before installing or
removing any internal accessories, 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 around before
finishing the installation, repeat this procedure to discharge any static
electricity again.
Activating the added accessories in the PS driver properties. After
installing an accessory such as an optional tray, PS driver users must do
the additional setting. Go to the PS printer properties and set the added
accessory activated.
When installing accessories, the battery inside the machine is a
service component. Do not change it by yourself.
There is a risk of an explosion if battery is replaced by an incorrect
type. Dispose used batteries according to the instructions.
If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash
clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric.
Do not touch the green underside of the toner cartridge. Use the
handle on the cartridge to avoid touching this area.
5. Remove the paper protecting the toner cartridge by pulling the packing
tape.
6. Hold the toner cartridge by the handle and slowly insert the cartridge into
the opening in the machine.
Tabs on the sides of the cartridge and corresponding grooves within the
machine will guide the cartridge into the correct position until it locks into
ACTIVATING THE ADDED ACCESSORIES IN
PRINTER PROPERTIES
After installing added accessories, you need to select it in the printer
properties of the printer driver in order to use it.
1. Install the driver. (See "Installing USB connected machine’s driver" on
page 26, "Installing network connected machine’s driver" on page 32.)
2. Click the Windows Start menu.
• For Windows 2000, select Settings > Printers.

Supplies and accessories_ 78
5. In printer driver properties, set the necessary options.
• For PS driver, select the Installable Options section and set the
necessary options.
6. Click OK.
7. Reconnect the power cord and machine cable and turn the machine on.
If you use the PS driver, you must activate the added memory in the
PS driver properties.
UPGRADING A MEMORY MODULE
Your machine has a dual in-line memory module (DIMM). Use this memory
module slot to install additional memory.
The machine has two memory slots with a factory pre-installed memory
module in one slot. When you are expanding the memory capacity, you can
add a memory module to the vacant memory slot. It is strongly
recommended that you expand a memory module in the vacant memory
slot, and not by removing a pre-installed memory module. If your machine
has 64 MB memory capacity and you want to add 128 MB, the memory
capacity expands up to 192 MB. Order information is provided for additional
memory module. (See "Available accessories" on page 77.)
Installing a memory module
1. Turn the machine off and unplug all cables from the machine.
2. Grasp the control board cover and remove it.
3. Remove the new memory module from its bag.
4. Holding the memory module by the edges, align the memory module on
the slot at about a 30-degree tilt. Make sure that the notches of the
module and the grooves on the slot fit each other.
The notches and grooves illustrated above may not match those
on an actual memory module and its slot.
5. Press the memory module into the slot with care until you hear a ‘click’.
Do not press the memory module strongly or the module may be
damaged. If the module does not seem to fit into the slot properly,
carefully try the previous procedure again.
6. Replace the control board cover.

glossary
The following glossary helps you get familiar with the product by
understanding the terminologies commonly used with printing as well
as mentioned in this user’s guide.
CCD
Charge Coupled Device (CCD) is a hardware which enables the scan
job. CCD Locking mechanism is also used to hold the CCD module to
prevent any damage when you move the machine.
802.11
Collation
802.11 is a set of standards for wireless local area network (WLAN)
communication, developed by the IEEE LAN/MAN Standards
Committee (IEEE 802).
Collation is a process of printing a multiple-copy job in sets. When
collation is selected, the device prints an entire set before printing
additional copies.
802.11b/g
802.11b/g can share same hardware and use the 2.4 GHz band.
802.11b supports bandwidth up to 11 Mbps; 802.11g up to 54 Mbps.
802.11b/g devices may occasionally suffer interference from microwave
ovens, cordless telephones, and Bluetooth devices.
Control Panel
Access point
Coverage
Access Point or Wireless Access Point (AP or WAP) is a device that
connects wireless communication devices together on wireless local
area networks (WLAN), and acts as a central transmitter and receiver of
WLAN radio signals.
A control panel is a flat, typically vertical, area where control or
monitoring instruments are displayed. They are typically found in front of
the machine.
It is the printing term used for a toner usage measurement on printing.
For example, 5% coverage means that an A4 sided paper has about 5%
image or text on it. So, if the paper or original has complicated images or
lots of text on it, the coverage will be higher and at the same time, a
toner usage will be as much as the coverage.
