Guidelines for selecting the print media
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 57.)
• 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.

Some print media may meet all of the guidelines in this section and
still not produce satisfactory results. This may be the result of
improper handling, unacceptable temperature and humidity levels,
or other variables over which cannot be controlled.
Before purchasing large quantities of print media, ensure that it
meets the requirements specifications in this user’s guide and
meets your output requirements.
Using print media that does not meet these specifications may
cause problems, requiring repairs. Such repairs are not covered by
the warranty or service agreements.
Using inflammable print media can cause a fire.
Use designated print media (See "Printing on special media" on
page 28).
The use of inflammable media or foreign materials left in the printer
may lead to overheating of the unit and, in rare cases may cause a
fire.
The amount of paper put into the tray may differ according to media type
used. (See "Print media specifications" on page 57.)

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.
1 Acceptable
2 Unacceptable
Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one flap that
folds over to seal must use adhesives compatible with the machine’s
fusing temperature (about 170°C(338 °F)) for 0.1 second. 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.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Labels
To avoid damaging the machine, use only labels designed for use in laser
machines.
•
Transparency
To avoid damaging the machine, use only transparencies designed for use
in laser printers.
In case of color printing using transparencies, the picture quality would
be lower than mono printing when the printouts are used on the
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.
•
•
•
When selecting labels, consider the following factors:
- Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at your
machine’s fusing temperature (about 170°C(338 °F)).
- 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.

Using the output support
The surface of the output tray may become hot if you print a large
number of pages at once. Make sure that you do not touch the
surface, and do not allow children near it.
•
•
•
Do not print on media smaller than 76 mm (3.00 inches) wide or 127 mm
(5.00 inches) long.
In the software application, set margins at least 6.4 mm (0.25 inches)
away from the edges of the material.
The printed pages stack on the output support, and the output support will
help the printed pages to align. The printer sends output to the output tray
by default. To use the output tray, make sure that the rear cover is closed.
If media weight is over 160 g/m2 (43 lb), try printing in the rear cover
(face up).

Letterhead/ Preprinted paper must be printed with heat-resistant ink that
will not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous emissions when subjected
to the machine’s fusing temperature (about 170°C(338 °F)) for 0.1
second.
Letterhead/ Preprinted paper ink must be non-flammable and should not
adversely affect machine rollers.
Forms and letterhead should be sealed in a moisture-proof wrapping to
prevent changes during storage.
Before you load letterhead/preprinted paper, verify that the ink on the
paper is dry. During the fusing process, wet ink can come off preprinted
paper, reducing print quality.

Overlays are often used to take the place of letterhead paper. Rather than
using preprinted letterhead, you can create an overlay containing exactly
the same information that is currently on your letterhead. To print a letter
with your company’s letterhead, you do not need to load preprinted
letterhead paper in the machine just print the letterhead overlay on your
document.

Storing the toner cartridge
Tips for moving & storing your machine
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
(cancel button) for about 2 to 5
Cleaning a machine
If printing quality problems occur or if you use your machine in a dusty
environment, you need to clean your machine regularly to keep the best
printing condition and use your machine longer.
•
•
Cleaning the cabinet of the machine with cleaning materials
containing large amounts of alcohol, solvent, or other strong
substances can discolor or distort the cabinet.
If your machine or the surrounding area is contaminated with
toner, we recommend you use cloth or tissue dampened with
water to clean it. If you use a vacuum cleaner, toner blows in the
air and might be harmful to you.
Cleaning the outside
Clean the machine cabinet with a soft, lint-free cloth. Dampen the cloth
slightly with water, but be careful not to let any water drip onto or into the
machine.
•
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.
Cleaning the inside
During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles can accumulate
inside the machine. This buildup can cause print quality problems, such as
toner specks or smearing. Cleaning the inside of the machine clears and
reduces these problems.
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 machine and gently swab
the glass to see if dirt turns the white cotton black.
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
•
•
5. Reinsert the toner cartridge and close the front cover.
6. Plug in the power cord and turn the machine on.
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.
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.
• Store lying flat (not standing on end) with the same side facing up as if
they were installed in the machine.
• Do not store consumables in;
- Temperature greater than 40°C (104°F).
- Humidity range less than 20% or 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

When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life:
• White streaks or light printing occurs.
• The
LED blinks orange.
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.
If the output tray is closed, open the output tray.
Tips for avoiding paper curls
1. Open the rear cover.
2. Pull down the pressure lever on each side.
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

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 27.)
• 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.
• Ensure that the recommended side of the print media is facing down in
the tray, or facing up in the manual tray.

"Replacing the toner cartridge" on page 53.)
• Parts of the machine 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.

Background
scatter
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

An unknown image

Your machine is probably being used at an
altitude of 1,000 m (3,281 ft) or above.
The high altitude may affect the print quality,
such as loose toner or light imaging. Change the
correct altitude setting to your machine. (See
"Altitude adjustment" on page 25.)
The machine does
not print whole
pages, and output is
printed on half the
page.
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.
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.
Common Windows problems
Condition
Suggested solutions
“File in Use”
message appears

“Illegal Operation”
messages appear.
Close all other applications, reboot Windows
and try printing again.
“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.
Refer to Microsoft Windows User’s Guide that came with your
computer for further information on Windows error messages.

Check if the printer driver is installed in your
system. Open Unified Driver Configurator and
switch to the Printers tab in Printers
configuration window to look at the list of
available machines. Make sure that your
machine is displayed on the list. If not, open
Add new printer wizard to set up your
device.
Check if the machine is started. Open
Printers configuration and select your
machine on the printers list. Look at the
description in the Selected printer pane. If its
status contains Stopped string, press the
Start button. After that normal operation of
the machine should be restored. The
“stopped” status might be activated when
some problems in printing occurred.
Check if your application has special print
option such as “-oraw”. If “-oraw” is specified
in the command line parameter, then remove
it to print properly. For Gimp front-end, select
“print” -> “Setup printer” and edit command
line parameter in the command item.

Suggested solutions
The machine does
not print PDF files
correctly. Some
parts of graphics,

To replace a toner cartridge see "Replacing the toner cartridge" on page 53.
Depending on the options and job mode used, the toner cartridge’s
lifespan may differ.
When the toner cartridge reaches its estimated cartridge life.
• The Samsung Printer Status (or Smart Panel) program window appears
on the computer telling you the toner cartridge needs to be replaced.
• 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 53.)
When purchasing new toner cartridges or other supplies, these must
be purchased in the same country as the machine you are using.
Otherwise, new toner cartridges or other supplies will be incompatible
with your machine due to different configurations of toner cartridges
and other supplies according to the specific country conditions.
Supplies_ 53
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
place completely.
1. Open the front cover.
2. Pull the toner cartridge out.
3. Take a new toner cartridge out of its package.
4. Remove the paper protecting the toner cartridge by pulling the packing
tape.
8. Close the front cover. Make sure that the cover is securely closed.
5. Locate the sealing tape at the end of the toner cartridge. Carefully pull
the tape completely out of the cartridge and discard it.
•
The sealing tape should be longer than 60 cm when correctly
removed.
• Holding the toner cartridge, pull the sealing tape straight to
remove it from the cartridge. Be careful not to cut the tape. If
this happens, you cannot use the toner cartridge.
• Refer to the helpful pictures on the cartridge wrapping paper.
6. Slowly shake the cartridge five or six times to distribute the toner evenly
inside the cartridge. It will assure maximum copies per 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.
7. Hold the toner cartridge by the handle and slowly insert the cartridge into
the opening in the machine.

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.
client. BOOTP enables 'diskless workstation' computers to obtain an IP
address prior to loading any advanced operating system.
CCD
802.11
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 is a set of standards for wireless local area network (WLAN)
communication, developed by the IEEE LAN/MAN Standards
Committee (IEEE 802).
Collation
802.11b/g/n
802.11b/g/n can share same hardware and use the 2.4 GHz band.
802.11b supports bandwidth up to 11 Mbps, 802.11n supports
bandwidth up to 150 Mbps. 802.11b/g/n devices may occasionally suffer
interference from microwave ovens, cordless telephones, and Bluetooth
devices.
Access point
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.
ADF
An Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is a scanning unit that will
automatically feed an original sheet of paper so that the machine can
scan some amount of the paper at once.
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.
Control Panel
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.
Coverage
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.
CSV
AppleTalk
AppleTalk is a proprietary suite of protocols developed by Apple, Inc for
computer networking. It was included in the original Macintosh (1984)
and is now deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP networking.
Comma Separated Values (CSV). A type of file format, CSV is used to
exchange data between disparate applications. The file format, as it is
used in Microsoft Excel, has become a de facto standard throughout the
industry, even among non-Microsoft platforms.
DADF
BIT Depth
A computer graphics term describing the number of bits used to
represent the color of a single pixel in a bitmapped image. Higher color
depth gives a broader range of distinct colors. As the number of bits
increases, the number of possible colors becomes impractically large for
a color map. 1-bit color is commonly called as monochrome or black and
