Learning about the MFP
Understanding the MFP control panel
MFP and scanner settings can be changed several ways: through the MFP control panel, the software application in use,
the print driver, MarkVision™ Professional, or the Web pages. Settings changed from the application or print driver apply
only to the job being sent to the MFP.
Changes made to print, fax, copy, and e-mail settings from an application override changes made from the control panel.
Note: Faxing is not supported on all models.
If a setting cannot be changed from the application, use the MFP control panel, MarkVision Professional, or the Web pages.
Changing a setting from the MFP control panel, MarkVision Professional, or the Web pages makes that setting the user
default.

Understanding the copy screens and options
Copy From: Opens a screen where you can enter the size of the documents you are going to copy.
•
Touching any of the paper size icons on the follow-on screen will make that your selection and return you to the
Copy Options Screen.
•
When Original Size is set to Mixed Sizes, you can scan different size original documents (letter and legal size
pages). They will be scaled automatically to fit the selected output media size.
Copy To: Opens a screen where you can enter the size and type of paper on which your copies will be printed.
•
Touching any of the paper size icons on the follow-on screen will make that your selection and return you to the
Copy Options Screen.
•
If the size settings for Copy From and Copy To are different, the MFP will automatically adjust the Scale setting to
accommodate the difference.
•
If you have a special type or size of paper that you'd like to copy onto that is not normally in the MFP paper trays,
you can select MP Feeder, and manually send the type of paper you want through the MP feeder.
•
When using Auto Match, the MFP will match the size of the original document as specified in the Copy From box.
If a matching paper size is not loaded in one of the paper trays, the MFP will scale the copy to fit loaded media.
Scale: Creates an image from your copy that is proportionally scaled anywhere between 25% and 400%. Scale can also be
set for you automatically.
•
When you want to copy from one size of paper to another, such as legal size to letter size, setting your Copy From
and Copy To paper sizes will automatically change the scale to keep all the original document information on your
copy.
•
Touching the arrow to the left lowers the value by 1%; touching the arrow to the right increases the value by 1%.
•
Holding your finger on an arrow makes a continuous increment.
•
Holding your finger on an arrow for two seconds causes the pace of the change to accelerate.
Darkness: Adjusts how light or dark your copies will turn out in relation to the original document.
Using the flatbed
21
Copying
Printed Image: Copies halftone photographs or graphics such as documents printed on a laser printer or pages from a
magazine or newspaper that are composed primarily of images. For original documents that are a mixture of text, line
drawings, or other graphics, leave Printed Image off.
Sides (Duplex): Prints copies on 1 or 2 sides, makes 2-sided copies (duplex) of 2-sided original documents, 2-sided copies
from 1-sided original documents or 1-sided copies (simplex) from 2-sided original documents.
Note: For 2-sided output, you must have a duplex unit attached to your printer.
Collate: Keeps the pages of a print job stacked in sequence, particularly when printing multiple copies of the document.
The default setting for Collate is on; the output pages of your copies will be ordered (1,2,3) (1,2,3) (1,2,3). If you want all the
copies of each page to remain together, turn Collate off, and your copies will be ordered (1,1,1) (2,2,2) (3,3,3).
Options: Opens a screen to change Paper Saver, Advanced Imaging, Separator Sheets, Margin Shift, Edge Erase, Date/
Time Stamp, Overlay, Content, or Advance Duplex settings.
•
Paper Saver: Takes two or more sheets of an original document and prints them together on the same page.
Paper Saver is also called N-up printing. The N stands for Number. For example, 2-up would print two pages of
your document on a single page, and 4-up would print four pages of your document on a single page. Touching
Print Page Borders adds or removes the outline border surrounding the original document pages on the output
page.
•
Create Booklet: Creates a sequence of collated output that, when folded in half, forms a booklet half the page
size of the original document and with all the pages in order.
Note: To use Create Booklet, you must have a duplex unit attached to the MFP.
•
Advanced Imaging: Adjusts Background Removal, Contrast, and Shadow Detail before you copy the document.
•
Custom Job (Job Build): Combines multiple scanning jobs into a single job.
Note: Custom Job is not supported on all models.
•
Separator Sheets: Places a blank piece of paper between each copy of your copying job. The separator sheets
can be drawn from a bin with a different kind or color of paper from your copies.
•
Margin Shift: Increases the size of the margin a specified distance. This can be useful in providing space to bind
or hole-punch copies. Use the increase or decrease arrows to set how much of a margin you want. If the
additional margin is too large, the copy will be cropped.
•
Edge Erase: Eliminates smudges or information around the edges of your document. You can choose to eliminate
an equal area around all four sides of the paper, or pick a particular edge. Edge Erase will erase whatever is within
the selected area, leaving nothing printed on that portion of the paper.
•
Date/Time Stamp: Turns the Date/Time Stamp on and prints the date and time at the top of every page.
•
Overlay: Creates a watermark (or message) that overlays the content of your copy. You can choose between
Urgent, Confidential, Copy, and Draft. The word you pick will appear, faintly, in large print across each page.
Note: A custom overlay can be created by the system administrator. An additional icon with that message
will then be available.
•
Content: Enhances copy quality. Choose Text for original documents that are mostly text or line art. Choose Text/
Photo when the original documents are a mixture of text and graphics or pictures. Choose Photograph when the
original document is a high-quality photograph or inkjet print. Choose Printed Image when copying halftone
photographs or graphics such as documents printed on a laser printer or pages from a magazine or newspaper.
•
Advanced Duplex: Controls how many sides and what orientation your original documents have, and whether
your original documents are bound along the long edge or the short edge.

parameters.
The definition of a set depends on the Scan Source:
•
From the flatbed, a set consists of one page.
•
From the ADF, a set consists of all scanned pages until the ADF becomes empty.
•
When one page is sent through the ADF, a set consists of one page.
For example:

Copy tips
The following tips may improve the MFP copy quality. For additional information or to solve copy problems, see Solving
copy quality problems.
Question
Tip
When should I use Text mode?
• Text mode should be used when text preservation is the main goal of the copy, and
preserving images copied from the original document is not a concern.
• Text is best used for receipts, carbon copy forms, and documents that only contain
text or fine line art.
When should I use Text/Photo
mode?
• Text/Photo mode should be used when copying an original document that contains
a mixture of text and graphics.
• Text/Photo is best used for magazine articles, business graphics, and brochures.
When should I use
Printed Image mode?
Printed Image mode should be used when copying halftone photographs, graphics
such as documents printed on a laser printer, or pages from a magazine or
newspaper.
When should I use Photograph
mode?
Photograph mode should be used when the original document is a high-quality
photograph or inkjet print.

Understanding fax options
Original: Opens a screen where you can choose the size of the documents you are going to fax.
•
Touching any of the paper size buttons on the follow-on screen will make that your selection and return you to the
Fax Options Screen.
•
When Original Size is set to Mixed Sizes, you can scan different size original documents (letter and legal size
pages). They will be scaled automatically to fit the selected output media size.
Content: Used to select the type of document you are scanning (for example, Text, Text/Photo, or Photo). Content affects
the quality and size of your scan by selecting how the scanner will handle the information on the original document.
•
The Text setting will emphasize sharp, black, high-resolution text against a clean, white background.
The Text/Photo setting is used when the original documents are a mixture of text and graphics or pictures.
•
The Photo setting tells the scanner to pay extra attention to graphics and pictures. This setting takes longer to
scan but emphasizes a reproduction of the full dynamic range of tones in the original document. This increases
the amount of information saved.
Sides: Informs the MFP if your original document is simplex (printed on one side) or duplex (printed on both sides). This
lets the scanner know what needs to be scanned for inclusion in the fax.
Resolution: Increases how closely the scanner examines the document you wish to fax. If you are faxing a photograph, a
drawing with fine lines, or a document with very small text, increase the Resolution setting. This will increase the amount of
time required for the scan and will increase the quality of the fax output. Standard is suitable for most documents. Fine is
recommended for documents with small print. Super fine is recommended for original documents with fine detail. Ultra fine
is recommended for documents with pictures or photographs.
Darkness: Adjusts how light or dark your faxes will turn out in relation to the original document.
Advanced Options: Accesses the Delayed Send, Advanced Imaging, Custom Job, Transmission Log, Scan Preview,
Edge Erase, Advanced Duplex, or Fax Queue settings.
Delayed Send: Sets up a fax that will be sent at a later time or date. After setting up your fax, select Delayed
Send, enter the time and date you would like to transmit your fax, and then touch Done. This setting can be
especially useful in sending information to fax lines that are not readily available during certain hours, or when
transmission times are cheaper.
Note: If the device is powered off when the delayed fax is due to be sent, the fax is sent the next time the
MFP is powered up.
Advanced Imaging: Select this feature to adjust Background Removal, Contrast, and Shadow Detail before you
copy the document.
Custom Job (Job Build): Combines multiple scanning jobs into a single job.
Note: Custom Job is not supported on all models.
Transmission Log: Prints the transmission log or transmission error log.
Scan Preview: Displays the image before it is included in the fax. When a page is scanned, the scanning is
paused, and a preview image appears.
Note: Scan Preview is not supported on all models.
Edge Erase: Eliminates smudges or information around the edges of your document. You can choose to eliminate
an equal area around all four sides of the paper, or pick a particular edge. Edge Erase will erase whatever is within
the area selected, leaving nothing printed on that portion of the paper.
Advanced Duplex: Controls how many sides and what orientation your original document has, and whether your
original documents are bound along the long edge or the short edge.

Fax tips
The following tips may improve the MFP fax quality or solve fax problems. For additional information or to solve copy
problems, see Solving fax problems.
Question
Tip
When should I use Text mode?
• Text mode should be used when text preservation is the main goal of the fax, and
preserving images copied from the original document is not a concern.
• Text is best used for receipts, carbon copy forms, and documents that only contain
text or fine line art.
When should I use
Text/Photo mode?
• Text/Photo mode should be used when faxing an original document that contains a
mixture of text and graphics.
• Text/Photo is best used for magazine articles, business graphics, and brochures.
When should I use Photo mode? Photo mode should be used for faxing photos printed on a laser printer or taken from
a magazine or newspaper.
Caller ID is not shown
If your region supports caller ID, you may have to change the default setting. There
are two settings available; FSK (pattern 1) and DTMF (pattern 2). Contact your
telecommunications company to determine which pattern or switch setting to use.

FTP
The MFP scanner lets you scan documents directly to a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) server.
Note: Only one FTP address may be sent to at a time.
Once an FTP destination has been configured by your system administrator, the name of the destination becomes available
as a shortcut number or listed as a profile under the Held Jobs icon. An FTP location could also be another PostScript
printer: for example, a color document can be scanned and then sent to a color printer. Sending a document to an FTP
server is similar to sending a fax. The difference is that you are sending the information over your network instead of the
phone line.

Printing confidential and held jobs
The term held job refers to any type of print job that can be initiated by the user at the MFP. This includes a confidential job,
a verify print job, a reserve print job, a repeat print job, a bookmark, a profile, or a file on a USB flash memory device. When
sending a job to the MFP, you can specify in the driver that you want the MFP to hold the job in memory. Once your job is
stored in MFP memory, go to the MFP, and use the MFP control panel to specify what you want to do with your print job.
All confidential and held jobs have a user name associated with them. To access confidential or held jobs, you must first
select the type of job (confidential or held), and then select your user name from the user name list. Once you select your
user name, you can print all your confidential jobs, or select an individual print job. You can then choose the number of
copies for the print job, or you can delete the print job.
Printing a confidential job
When you send a confidential job to the MFP, you must enter a personal identification number (PIN) from the driver. The
PIN must be four digits using the numbers 0—9. The job is held in MFP memory until you enter the same four-digit PIN from
the control panel and choose to print or delete the job. This ensures the job does not print until you are there to retrieve it.
No one else using the MFP can print the job without the PIN.

Printing and deleting held jobs
Held jobs (Verify Print, Reserve Print, or Repeat Print) are printed or deleted from the MFP control panel and do not require
a PIN.
Verify Print
If you send a Verify Print job, the MFP prints one copy and holds the remaining copies you requested in MFP memory. Use
Verify Print to examine the first copy to see if it is satisfactory before printing the remaining copies. Once all copies are
printed, the Verify Print job is automatically deleted from MFP memory.
Reserve Print
If you send a Reserve Print job, the MFP does not print the job immediately. It stores the job in memory so you can print the
job later. The job is held in memory until you delete it from the Held Jobs menu. Reserve Print jobs may be deleted if the
MFP requires extra memory to process additional held jobs.
Repeat Print
If you send a Repeat Print job, the MFP prints all requested copies of the job and stores the job in memory so you can print
additional copies later. You can print additional copies as long as the job remains stored in memory.
Note: Repeat Print jobs are automatically deleted from MFP memory when the MFP requires extra memory
to process additional held jobs.

Loading the envelope feeder
The optional envelope feeder can accept a variety of envelope sizes. However, the envelope feeder must be adjusted
correctly to ensure trouble-free printing. To load the envelope feeder:
1
Adjust the envelope support for the length of envelope you are loading.
•
•
•
Fully closed (pushed in toward the printer) for short envelopes
Extended to the middle position for medium-length envelopes
Fully open (extended to its full length) for long envelopes
Warning: Do not place objects on the envelope feeder. Avoid pressing down on it or applying excessive force.
2
Lift the envelope weight back toward the printer. It stays in place.
3
Slide the width guide to the far right.
4
Flex a stack of envelopes back and forth, and then straighten the edges on a level surface. Press down the
corners to flatten them.
Fan the envelopes. This prevents the edges of the envelopes from sticking together and helps them feed properly.

63
Printing
5
Load the stack of envelopes flap side down with the stamp area and the flap on the left. The end of the envelopes
with the stamp area enters the envelope feeder first.
Let the envelopes at the bottom of the stack slide into the envelope feeder slightly more than the ones at the top of
the stack.
Warning: Never use envelopes with stamps, clasps, snaps, windows, coated linings, or self-stick adhesives.
These envelopes may severely damage the printer.
Note: When you load envelopes, do not exceed the maximum stack height. Use the stack height label as a
guide for the correct stack height when loading. Do not try to load more envelopes than indicated by
the stack height label; overloading can cause jams.
6
Slide the width guide to the left until it lightly touches the stack. Make sure the envelopes do not buckle.
7
Lower the envelope weight to touch the stack.

Set the Paper Size and Paper Type for the envelope feeder to the correct value for the print media you loaded.
See Setting the Paper Type and Paper Size for more information.

Linking trays
Tray linking enables the automatic linking feature for trays when you load the same size and type of print media in multiple
sources. The printer automatically links the trays; when one tray is empty, print media feeds from the next linked tray.
For example, if you have the same size and type of print media loaded in tray 2 and tray 4, the printer selects print media
from tray 2 until it becomes empty, and then the printer automatically feeds print media from the next linked tray–tray 4.
By linking all trays (standard and optional), you effectively create a single source with a capacity of up to 4,100 sheets.
Make sure you load the same size and type of print media in each tray and then, using the Paper menu, set the same paper
size and type for the trays to link.
Set the paper size and type for each tray. See Setting the Paper Type and Paper Size for more information.
To disable tray linking, set the Paper Type to a unique value for each tray.
If all the trays do not have the same type of print media loaded when linked, you could mistakenly print a job on the wrong
paper.

Understanding paper and specialty media guidelines
Selecting print media
Selecting the appropriate print media for the MFP helps you avoid printing problems. The following sections contain
guidelines for choosing the correct print media for the MFP.
•
Paper
•
Card stock
•
Envelopes
•
Transparencies
•
Labels
Paper
For the best print quality, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb) xerographic, grain long paper. Try a sample of any paper you are considering
using with the MFP before buying large quantities.
When loading paper, note the recommended print side on the paper package, and load paper accordingly. See Loading
standard trays and optional trays, Loading the multipurpose feeder, or Loading the 2000-sheet drawer for detailed
tray-loading instructions.
Paper characteristics
The following paper characteristics affect print quality and reliability. We recommend that you follow these guidelines when
evaluating new paper stock.
For detailed information, see the Card Stock & Label Guide located on the Lexmark Web site at www.lexmark.com.
The laser printing process heats paper to high temperatures of 230°C (446°F). For Magnetic Ink Character Recognition
(MICR) applications and for non-MICR applications, use only paper able to withstand these temperatures without
discoloring, bleeding, or releasing hazardous emissions. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine whether the
paper you have chosen is acceptable for laser printers.
Weight
The MFP can automatically feed paper weights from 60 to 176 g/m2 (16 to 47 lb bond) grain long in the integrated and
optional 500-sheet trays and paper weights from 60 to 135 g/m2 (16 to 36 lb bond) grain long in the multipurpose feeder
and optional 250-sheet trays. Paper lighter than 60 g/m2 (16 lb) might not be stiff enough to feed properly, causing jams.
For best performance, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb bond) grain long paper. When using paper narrower than 182 x 257 mm (7.2 x
10.1 in.), make sure the weight is greater than or equal to 90 g/m2 (24 lb bond).
Unacceptable paper
Note: Papers such as carbonless, very light papers and magazine paper should be copied using the flatbed.
Do not use the ADF for this type of paper.
The following papers are not recommended for use with the MFP:
•
Some chemically-treated papers used to make copies without carbon paper, also known as carbonless papers,
carbonless copy paper (CCP), or no carbon required (NCR) paper (See the Card Stock & Label Guide located on
the Lexmark Web site at www.lexmark.com for supported chemically-treated papers.)
•
Preprinted papers with chemicals that may contaminate the MFP
•
Preprinted papers that can be affected by the temperature in the MFP fuser
•
Preprinted papers that require a registration (the precise print location on the page) greater than ±0.09 in., such as
optical character recognition (OCR) forms
In some cases, you can adjust registration with your software application to successfully print on these forms.
•
Coated papers (erasable bond), synthetic papers, or thermal papers
•
Rough-edged, rough or heavily textured surface papers or curled papers
•
Recycled papers containing more than 25% post-consumer waste that do not meet DIN 19 309
Selecting print media
73
Understanding paper and specialty media guidelines
•
Recycled paper having a weight less than 60 g/m2 (16 lb)
•
Multiple-part forms or documents
Transparencies
The MFP can print directly on transparencies designed for use in laser printers. Print quality and durability depend on the
transparency used. Always print samples on the transparencies you are considering before buying large quantities.
The Paper Type setting should be set to Transparency to help prevent jams. In Macintosh, be sure to set the Paper Type to
Transparency in the Print dialog on the Imaging choice in the Copies & Pages pop-up menu.
Use transparencies designed specifically for laser printers. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine whether
your transparencies are compatible with laser printers that heat transparencies to 230°C (446°F). Use only transparencies
that are able to withstand these temperatures without melting, discoloring, offsetting, or releasing hazardous emissions. For
detailed information, see the Card Stock & Label Guide, which is available on the Lexmark Web site at www.lexmark.com.
Transparencies can be fed automatically from the multipurpose feeder and all standard and optional trays, except the 2000sheet drawer. Before loading transparencies, fan the stack to prevent sheets from sticking together.
Be careful when you handle transparencies. Fingerprints on the surface of the transparency cause poor print quality.
Envelopes
You can load up to 10 envelopes in the multipurpose feeder and 85 envelopes in the envelope feeder. Try a sample of any
envelopes you are considering using with the MFP before buying large quantities. See Loading the multipurpose feeder
and Loading the envelope feeder for instructions on loading envelopes.
When printing on envelopes:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
To achieve the best possible print quality, use only high-quality envelopes that are designed for use in laser
printers.
Set the Paper Size/Type in the Paper menu to MP Feeder, Manual Env, or Env Feeder depending on the source
you are using. Set the paper type to Envelope, and select the correct envelope size from the control panel, the
MFP driver, or from MarkVision.
For best performance, use envelopes made from 75 g/m2 (20 lb bond) paper. You can use up to 105 g/m2 (28 lb
bond) weight for the multipurpose feeder or 105 g/m2 (28 lb bond) weight for the envelope feeder as long as the
cotton content is 25% or less. Envelopes with 100% cotton content must not exceed 90 g/m2 (24 lb bond) weight.
Use only new, undamaged envelopes.
For best performance and to minimize jams, do not use envelopes that:
— Have excessive curl or twist.
— Are stuck together or damaged in any way.
— Contain windows, holes, perforations, cutouts or embossing.
— Use metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars.
— Have an interlocking design.
— Have postage stamps attached.
— Have any exposed adhesive when the flap is in the sealed or closed position.
— Have nicked edges or bent corners.
— Have rough, cockle, or laid finishes.
Use envelopes that can withstand temperatures of 230°C (446°F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or
releasing hazardous emissions. If you have any doubts about the envelopes you are considering using, check
with the envelope supplier.
Load only one size of envelope at a time in the envelope feeder.
A combination of high humidity (over 60%) and the high printing temperatures may seal the envelopes.
Selecting print media
74
Understanding paper and specialty media guidelines
Labels
The MFP can print on many labels designed for use with laser printers. These labels are supplied in letter size, A4 size, and
legal size sheets. Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats must be able to withstand temperatures of
230°C (446°F) and pressure of 25 pounds per square inch (psi).
Try a sample of any labels you are considering using with the MFP before purchasing a large quantity.
For detailed information on label printing, characteristics, and design, see the Card Stock & Label Guide available on the
Lexmark Web site at www.lexmark.com/publications.
Note: Labels are one of the most difficult print media for laser MFPs. All MFP models require a special fuser
cleaner for label applications to optimize feed reliability. See Ordering supplies for information on
obtaining a label fuser cleaner.
After printing approximately 10,000 pages of labels (or each time you replace the print cartridge), complete the following
steps to maintain MFP feeding reliability:
1
Print five sheets of paper.
2
Wait approximately five seconds.
3
Print five more sheets of paper.
When printing on labels:
•
Set the Paper Size/Type menu item to Labels in the Paper menu. You can set the Paper Size/Type from the MFP
control panel, the MFP driver, or from MarkVision Professional.
•
Feed vinyl labels from the standard 250- or 500-sheet trays or the optional 250- or 500-sheet drawers. For vinyl
labels, set the Paper Type to Labels, the Labels Texture to Smooth, and the Label Weight to Heavy, or set the
Paper Type to vinyl labels and the texture and weight to normal.
•
Do not load labels with paper or transparencies in the same source; mixing print media can cause feeding
problems and print-quality problems.
•
Do not use label sheets with a slick backing material.
•
Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam. Partial sheets
also contaminate the MFP and your cartridge with adhesive, and could void the MFP and cartridge warranties.
•
Use labels that can withstand temperatures of 230°C (446°F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or
releasing hazardous emissions.
•
Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 in.) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die-cuts of the label.
•
Do not use label sheets that have adhesive to the edge of the sheet. We recommend zone coating of the adhesive
at least 1 mm (0.04 in.) away from edges. Adhesive material contaminates the MFP and could void the warranty.
•
If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, a 1.6 mm (0.1 in.) strip should be removed on the leading and
driver edge, and a non-oozing adhesive should be used.
•
Remove a 1.6 mm (0.1 in.) strip from the leading edge to prevent labels from peeling inside the MFP.
•
Portrait orientation is preferred, especially when printing bar codes.
•
Do not use labels that have exposed adhesive.
Selecting print media
75
Understanding paper and specialty media guidelines
Card stock
Card stock is single ply, and has a large array of properties, such as the moisture content, thickness, and texture, that can
significantly affect print quality. See Supported print media for information on the preferred weight and for the grain
direction of print media.
Try a sample of any card stock you are considering using with the MFP before purchasing a large quantity.
After printing approximately 10,000 pages of card stock (or each time you replace the print cartridge), complete the
following steps to maintain MFP feeding reliability:
1
Print five sheets of paper.
2
Wait approximately five seconds.
3
Print five more sheets of paper.
When printing on card stock:
•
Set the Paper Type menu item in the Paper menu to Card Stock from the control panel, from the MFP driver, or
from MarkVision Professional.
•
Be aware that preprinting, perforation, and creasing can significantly affect the print quality and cause print media
handling or jamming problems.
•
Avoid using card stock that may release hazardous emissions when heated.
•
Do not use preprinted card stock manufactured with chemicals that may contaminate the MFP. Preprinting
introduces semi-liquid and volatile components into the MFP.
We recommend the use of grain short card stock.
•
Storing print media
Use the following guidelines to avoid paper feeding problems and uneven print quality.
•
Store paper in an environment where the temperature is approximately 21°C (70°F) and the relative humidity is
40%.
•
Store cartons of paper on a pallet or shelf rather than directly on the floor.
•
If you store individual packages of paper out of the original carton, make sure they rest on a flat surface so the
edges do not buckle or curl.
•
Do not place anything on top of paper packages.
•
Store paper in its original wrapper until you load it into the MFP.
Storing print media
76
Understanding paper and specialty media guidelines
Avoiding jams
Automatic document feeder
Your automatic document feeder is designed to handle most paper types. However, if you are unsure if your document will
cause a jam in the automatic document feeder, we recommend that you scan it using the flatbed.
The following cannot be properly fed by the automatic document feeder:
•
Paper with clip or staple attached
•
Paper with ink not totally dry
•
Paper with inconsistent thickness, such as envelopes
•
Paper with wrinkles, curls, folds, or tears
•
Tracing paper, coated paper, carbonless paper
•
Paper that is too large or too small (use flatbed instead)
•
Items other than papers, such as cloth, metal, or OHP film
•
Notched paper
•
Paper with an odd (non-rectangular) shape
•
Photographic paper
•
Paper with perforations on its side
•
Very thin paper
Printer
Use appropriate print media (paper, transparencies, labels, and card stock) to help ensure trouble-free printing. See
Supported print media for more information.
Note: Try a limited sample of any print media you are considering using with the MFP before purchasing
large quantities.
By selecting the appropriate print media and loading it properly, you can avoid most jams. See Loading standard trays
and optional trays, Loading the multipurpose feeder, or Loading the 2000-sheet drawer for detailed tray-loading
instructions.
The following hints can help you avoid jams:
•
Use only recommended print media.
•
Do not overload the print media sources. Make sure the stack height does not exceed the maximum height
indicated by the stack line on the labels in the sources.
•
Do not load wrinkled, creased, damp, or curled print media.
•
Flex, fan, and straighten print media before you load it. If jams do occur with print media, try feeding one sheet at
a time through the multipurpose feeder.
•
Do not use print media that you have cut or trimmed yourself.
•
Do not mix print media sizes, weights, or types in the same print media source.
•
Make sure the recommended print side is loaded in the source according to your simplex or duplex needs.
•
Keep print media stored in an acceptable environment. See Storing print media.
•
Do not remove trays during a print job.
•
Push all trays in firmly after loading them.
Avoiding jams
77
Understanding paper and specialty media guidelines
•
Make sure the guides in the trays are properly positioned for the size of print media you have loaded. Make sure
the guides are not placed too tightly against the stack of print media.
•
If a jam occurs, clear the entire media path. See Clearing jams in the User’s Guide on the printer Software and
Publications CD for more information.

Clearing printer jams
Although there are several places a jam can occur, clearing the paper path is fairly easy depending on the jam message or
messages displayed on the operator panel.
Paper jams can occur in four areas: the front of the printer, inside the printer, at the rear of the printer, and the scanner.
Jams in the front of the printer occur in the input options or the duplex tray. Jams inside the printer occur in two locations
and require the removal of the print cartridge. Jams can occur at the rear of the printer or in one of the output options.
Scanner jams can occur as the paper enters the scanner or exits the scanner. Scanner jams can be cleared by opening the
ADF cover or the document cover and removing the jam.
Note: For more information on clearing printer paper jams, see Understanding jam messages located on
the printer publications CD. For information on clearing scanner related paper jams, see Clearing

•
•
Shared Key Authentication–Any ASCII phrase shared among all the participating hosts. This is the easiest way
to configure when only a few hosts on the network use IPSec.
Certificate Authentication–Allows any hosts or subnet of hosts to authenticate for IPSec. Each host must have
a public/private key pair. Validate Peer Certificate is enabled by default, requiring each host to have a signed
certificate. The certificate authority certificate must be installed. Each host must have its identifier in the Subject
Alternate Name of the signed certificate.
Note: After an MFP is configured for IPSec with a host, IPSec is required for any IP communication to take
place.

Using 802.1x authentication
802.1x port authentication allows the MFP to join networks that require authentication before allowing access. 802.1x port
authentication can be used with the WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) feature of an optional internal wireless print server to
provide WPA-Enterprise security support.
Support for 802.1x requires the establishment of credentials for the MFP. The MFP must be known to the Authentication
Server (AS). The AS will allow network access to devices presenting a valid set of credentials which typically involves a
name/password combination and possibly a certificate. The AS will allow network access to MFPs presenting a valid set of
credentials. The credentials can be managed by using the EWS of the MFP. To use certificates as part of the credentials:

Troubleshooting
Understanding MFP messages
The MFP displays three types of messages: status messages, attendance messages, and service messages. Status
messages provide information about the current state of the MFP. They require no action on your part. Attendance
messages alert you to MFP problems that require your intervention. Service messages also alert you to problems that
require intervention. However, the MFP will stop printing and the errors are non-recoverable. It may be possible to power
the MFP off and back on to temporarily recover from the service message error condition. For more information about MFP
messages, see the Menus and Messages Guide on the MFP Software and Documentation CD.
Online technical support
Technical support is available on our Lexmark Web site at www.lexmark.com.
Checking an unresponsive MFP
If the MFP is not responding, first make sure:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
The printer power cord is plugged into the scanner and the scanner is plugged into a properly grounded electrical
outlet.
The electrical outlet is not turned off by any switch or breaker.
The MFP is not plugged into any surge protectors, uninterrupted power supplies, or extension cords.
Other electrical equipment plugged into the outlet is working.
The printer is turned on.
Remove the printer operator panel cover, and verify a menu screen is displayed, then replace the cover.
The scanner cable is securely attached to the MFP and printer.
Once you have checked each of these possibilities, turn the printer off, wait at least 10 seconds, and then turn the printer
back on. This often fixes the problem.
Locating the port name and IP address
The port name appears in the upper right corner of the MFP home screen and the IP address appears in the upper left
corner of the MFP home screen when the MFP is connected to a network.
The address also appears on the network setup page.
To print a network setup page
a
Touch the key icon on the MFP control panel.
b
Touch Reports.
c
Touch Network Setup Page or Network <x> Setup Page.
For more information, see “Assigning a printer IP address” in the MFP Setup guide.

Telephone companies report that electrical surges, typically lightning transients, are very destructive to customer terminal
equipment connected to AC power sources. This has been identified as a major nationwide problem. It is recommended
that the customer install an appropriate AC surge arrestor in the AC outlet to which this device is connected. An appropriate
AC surge arrestor is defined as one that is suitably rated, and certified by UL (Underwriter's Laboratories), another NRTL
(Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory), or a recognized safety certification body in the country/region of use. This is to
avoid damage to the equipment caused by local lightning strikes and other electrical surges.
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 makes it unlawful for any person to use a computer or other electronic
device, including fax machines, to send any message unless said message clearly contains in a margin at the top or bottom
of each transmitted page or on the first page of the transmission, the date and time it is sent and an identification of the
business or other entity, or other individual sending the message, and the telephone number of the sending machine or
such business, other entity, or individual. (The telephone number provided may not be a 900 number or any other number
