OZONE EMISSION
Ozone is a form of oxygen that is created
naturally in the upper atmosphere by
ultraviolet radiation. It can also be created
by an electric discharge, such as lightning.
Electrostatic printing equipment generates
ozone by a silent electric discharge when the
corotrons are energized during a print run.
This product produces ozone during normal
operation. The ozone produced is dependent on
print volume and is heavier than air.
Providing the correct environmental parameters
as specified in this guide ensures that
concentration levels meet safe limits.
Health and Safety Standards for Ozone
Because ozone can be an irritant, various
health and safety organizations worldwide, such
as Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL), have
established limits to the amount of ozone to
which employees may be exposed. These
workplace exposure limits are:
F
A person may not be exposed to an average
concentration of greater than 0.1 part per
million (PPM) of ozone for a period of eight
hours.
This product normally will not generate

CAUTION: Avoid loading the following
paper in the tray:
F
Paper of different sizes
F
Folded or creased paper
F
Excessively curled paper.
Paper Curl in Paper Loading All paper has a
curl that is created in the manufacturing
process. During the process, paper is stored
on large rolls before being cut into sheets.
Once cut and packaged, it retains some of the
curl from the large storage rolls.

Sequential--this scheme assigns no priority

received from any enabled port and then
advances to the next enabled port in the
sequence. The sequential polling is:
Parallel, Serial, AppleTalk, Other I/O, and
then back to Parallel. *Sequential is the

Priority--this scheme allows you to assign a
high priority to one enabled port (Parallel,
AppleTalk, Serial, or Other I/O). All other
ports have the same lower priority. If new
jobs are received from the priority port
before the jobs on the other ports have
begun executing, the port with the high
priority gets its print jobs printed first

ports down the queue.

Robust Xon/Xoff--this data stream handshake
is an extension of the Xon/Xoff data stream
handshake. If no data is received within
one second of the transmission of an Xon, it
sends additional Xon characters at one
second intervals.
Data Terminal Ready (DTR)--the DTR line
indicates whether or not the printer can
receive data (READY) or not (BUSY). When
the printer is READY, the DTR signal
switches to a HIGH state (unless the DTR
line has been set to inverted operation, in
which it switches to a low state) as a
request for data.
The printer requests data when the print
buffer is near empty.
The printer switches DTR to BUSY when the
print buffer is near full. When the printer
is turned on, the DTR signal is held at BUSY
until the printer has completed SELF TEST
and WARM UP.
Baud Rate (Serial) The Baud Rate is the rate at
which the information is sent from the host
computer to the printer. Baud rate is measured
in bits per second (bps). The factory default
setting is *9600 and this setting is normally
appropriate, but the setting must correspond to
the baud rate setting at the host computer.
The following baud rates are supported: 300,
600, 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600, 19200, and 38400.

for parity are: Odd, Even, or None. *None is
the factory default.
DTR Polarity The Data Terminal Ready (DTR)
Polarity menu item allows you to select whether
the DTR line on the serial interface is high or
low when the printer is ready to receive data.
The host setting must match the printer
setting. *High is the factory default.

jumper (ST1). The jumper is turned OFF by
placing the jumper shunt over only one pin, as
shown in the illustration below. The jumper is
turned ON by covering both pins. Turning the
jumper OFF sets the page size default to U. S.

SETTING THE PRINTER EMULATION AND
DEVICE ADDRESS
You may need to change the printer emulation or
printer device address settings at a later
date. Changing the printer emulation and
device address does not require removing the
twinax interface card from the printer.
Procedures for changing the printer emulation
or device address are included in this section.
All other interface card configuration changes
require the removal of the card from the
printer and should be done only by your Xerox
service representative.
The coaxial default settings for the
printer device address and printer emulation
can only be set through the FSL Function.
Refer to the Xerox Coax Command Reference for
instructions and a complete listing of coax
printers the 4219/MRP and 4215/MRP can emulate.

printer emulation in a twinax environment.
In the first part of the process you set the
printer emulation. To have your printer
emulate one of the printers (listed in Table 31), follow this procedure:
Step 1.
Switch the printer off.
Step 2.
Disconnect the twinaxial T-cable from the
printer.

DUAL PRINTER LINES
The 4219/MRP and 4215/MRP offer dual printer
emulation capabilities in which a twinax
interface card can be configured to emulate an
IPDS and an SCS printer simultaneously.
Sharing the printer between IPDS and SCS
emulations requires the use of the FSL 37
command. Refer to the IPDS Command Reference
for further information.

Preventing Manual Feed Problems
It is important to carefully follow the manual
feeding procedures to reduce the risk of paper
handling problems, such as paper jams and
skewed images (print appears on the sheet out
of alignment, slanted at an angle).
Paper jams are usually the result of early
feeds. The sheet is fed before the preceding
sheet has cleared the paper path by dropping
onto the output tray.
NOTE: If paper jams do occur, refer to the
“Clearing a Paper Jam and Resuming the Job,”
section in Chapter 5, “Care and Maintenance,”
for the correct way to clear the jammed paper.
A skewed image is usually the result of:

RECOMMENDED IMAGE AREA
FOR ENVELOPES
The varying number of material thicknesses that
are encountered in different areas of an
envelope has a significant impact on print
quality. Acceptable print quality can only be
assured when printing in those areas where
there are only two thicknesses of material. In
Figure 4-6, the upper diagram shows the varying
material thicknesses that are present on a
commercial #10 envelope.
The lower diagram in Figure 4-6 defines the
recommended image area. See the lower diagram
for the following explanations:
F
F
Recommended image area: The cross-hatched
area should be used for printing the address
of the recipient. Optimum image quality is
achieved in this area.
Shaded areas: These areas represent the
area to be used for the address. This
recommendation is based on the requirements
of high-speed optical character recognition

Reading the Font Report
The Font Report lists all of the resident and
downloaded PostScript fonts and all the
resident PCL fonts, by font family. A font is
a specific design of characters and symbols.
For example, Univers is one font family and
Helvetica is another. Univers Medium is a font
within a font family. Font families usually
contain a progression of design weights with
corresponding italics, condensed, expanded and
ornamental styles. A family can have as few as
two weights. Two kinds of fonts can be used
within the printer:
F
F
Scalable fonts
Bit-mapped fonts (PCL 5, SCS, and IPDS
modes)
Scalable Fonts Scalable fonts are available in
the PostScript page description language and
PCL 5 mode. Scalable fonts are created within
the printer on a character-by-character basis
ensuring font quality. Fonts can be scaled in
limitless sizes in PostScript page description

Font Characteristics
Fonts are made up of the following seven
characteristics:
Symbol Set A symbol set is a unique subgrouping
of all the available characters in a font. For
example, Roman-8 and IBM-PC, ECMA-94, ISO 25
are the symbol sets available with the PCL 5
mode. Each symbol set is designed with a
specific application in mind. Refer to
Appendix H for the symbol set tables.
Spacing All fonts are designed with either
fixed or proportional spacing. If the font
spacing is set for fixed, all character cells
are the same width regardless of the size of
the character being printed. If the font
spacing is set for proportional, character cell
width depends on the character size. For
example, a “W” is a wider character than an
“I.” If spacing is fixed, both the characters
(W and I) would be given the same sized
character cell and equal space on the printed
line. If spacing is proportional, the wider
character (W) is contained in a wider character
cell and given more space on the printed line
than the narrower character (I).
Pitch Pitch refers to the number of characters
that can be placed in a horizontal inch of
text. All fixed pitch fonts use a specific
pitch size. For example, a font with a pitch
setting of 10 prints 10 characters for every

Downloaded Fonts
Downloaded fonts are fonts that are stored on
the host and can be copied to the printer from
your host computer. These fonts are not
permanent, however; when you switch the printer
off, you must download the fonts again because
the memory used to store them is erased.
Load the fonts into the printer by following
the instructions for downloading included with
the font diskette. After downloading fonts,
print a Font Report. Any PostScript fonts that
have been downloaded to the printer from your
host computer are listed by their font name in
the RAM Resident column, and if installed, the
Programmable Font Module and Fixed Disk Drive
columns.
If you have installed the optional Fixed Disk
Drive or the Programmable Font Module in your
printer, you can use this storage to
permanently store PostScript downloaded fonts.
You must use the PostScript page description
language to download fonts to nonvolatile
memory.

CAUTION: If you are printing on a
4215/MRP or 4219/MRP with the standard
8-megabytes of RAM, not all of the 55
3816 Replicant Fonts can be loaded.
Doing so causes the printer to hang
when printing the Font Report. A
solution to this is to selectively
load only those fonts that are used.
Several resource lists are provided
with the Twinax Utility to load a
variable set of fonts. For example,
Detailed information on font downloading and
font selection is found in the “Fonts support
and selection” chapter in either the Xerox Coax

The Xerox Twinax and Coax Interface Configuration Reports
The Twinax and Coax Interface Configuration
Reports provide information on how the printer
is configured to operate within a twinaxial or
coaxial environment.
The functions listed on the reports refer to
the settings of the FSL (Function Select via
Line) options that are used to control the
specific features of the twinax and coax
emulations. The use of FSL commands allows you
to select options and features on your 4219/MRP
and 4215/MRP that are not available on the
printers that are emulated.
The use of the FSL commands is documented in
the Xerox Twinax Command Reference and the
Xerox Coax Command Reference.
The Firmware version information printed at the
top of the configuration report is useful
information if you need to report a problem to

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
This chapter provides the information you need
to care for and maintain your printer to ensure
optimum performance of the equipment and print
quality.
CLEARING A PAPER JAM AND
RESUMING THE JOB
It is occasionally necessary to clear a paper
jam when printing. Paper jams occur for a
variety of reasons.
The printer provides error codes and the
corresponding messages for paper jams.
Locations of paper jams and how to clear them
to resume your printing job are discussed
below.
PAPER JAM ERROR CODES
When a paper jam occurs, the beeper sounds five
times at one second intervals and the printer
stops printing. Table 5-1 lists the paper jam

PAPER FACTS
Paper is a critical item. Select, store and
load paper properly to avoid paper jams and
poor print quality. This chapter provides
information on the following:
F
Paper and print material specifications
F
Paper storage requirements
F
Envelope specifications
PAPER AND PRINT MATERIAL GUIDELINES
The paper should be of good quality, free of
cuts, nicks, tears, spots, loose particles,
dust, wrinkles, voids, and curled or bent
edges. The use of good quality paper ensures
good image transfer and toner fixing without
excessive curl. It is recommended that you
test a particular paper, prior to large
purchases, to determine if the performance is
acceptable. This section contains guidelines
for you to follow when selecting print material
to be used with your printer.
Print material that does not meet the
guidelines outlined in this section may:
F
Increase paper jams.
F
Cause unnecessary wear in the printer.
F
Degrade print quality.

Operator Guide
Card Stock
For optimum performance, use card stock in
weights from 16 to 28 pound (60 to 105 gsm).
Using card stock over 36 pound may cause
printer dysfunctions.
NOTE: The paper industry uses the term, basis
weight. For example, when you see paper listed
as 28 pound paper, you are being given a weight
specification. In English units, basis weight
refers to the weight in pounds of 500 sheets of
17 by 22 inch paper. Basis weight is measured
on a metric scale as the weight, in grams, of
one square meter of paper.
Preprinted Forms
Notify your supplier that the preprinted form
is used with a laser printer. Forms must be
printed with heat-resistant inks that will not
melt, vaporize, or release hazardous emissions
when subject to the fusing temperature of 392°
Fahrenheit (200° Centigrade) for 0.1 second.

Paper Facts
Labels
An adhesive label is paper with a pressuresensitive adhesive backing. The three parts of
label stock are the top or face sheet, the
adhesive, and the liner or carrier sheet,
referred to as the backing sheet. The parts of
the label stock are described below:
F
F
F
Top or face sheet: The top sheet is the
surface that the image is printed on. It is
usually composed of photocopy paper.
Carrier or Backing Sheet: The backing sheet
should be bleached sulfate stock and
silicone-coated for easy release of the face
sheet.
Adhesive: The adhesive should be stable at
the 392° F (200° C) temperatures encountered
in the fusing process and must not give off
any emissions that exceed exposure levels or
threshold limits established by regional or
national safety agencies.
Adhesives should not come in direct contact
with any part of the printer because the
label stock may stick to the print drum or
rollers, causing toner offset or paper jams.
No adhesive should be exposed between the
labels. To test label stock for adhesive
exposure, press a sheet of plain paper
against a sheet of label stock. The plain
paper should not adhere to the label stock
at all.

PAPER STORAGE
How you store your paper once you receive it is
an important aspect in the proper use of paper.
Here are some suggestions:
F
F
Store the paper in its own wrapper; do not
leave it unwrapped or in a place where it
can be affected by dampness or heat.
Store the paper on a horizontal (level)
surface. Do not place other objects on top
of the paper.
F
Store the paper in a closed cabinet.
F
Always store the paper in a cool, dry place.
F
Do not store paper on the floor. Cartons
should be placed on shelves. Do not stack
more than six cartons high.
NOTE: To reduce the effects of moisture on the
paper in areas of high humidity, store any
partially used reams of paper in plastic bags.
ENVELOPES
Paper properties are subject to change by paper
manufacturers. Follow the guidelines below
when selecting envelopes for use with your
printer:
F
Select envelopes that meet the
specifications outlined in Table G-4.

Paper Facts
F
The Xerox supplies organization can help you
select envelopes that are suitable for use
with a laser printer.
Envelope Guidelines
Use thin, high quality envelopes for best
results. Envelopes do not feed or image as
well as other material because of folding and
multiple layers of paper. Envelope
manufacturers vary in the consistency and
accuracy of the fold placement of their
envelopes. Select envelopes of the quality and
consistency you require.
Sizes Use only envelopes within the following
sizes:
F
F
Minimum: 3.82 by 7.43 inches (93 by 190.5
millimeters)
Maximum: 6.28 by 9.4 inches (161 by 241.3
millimeters)
Envelope Construction An envelope with good
construction has a leading edge that enters the

paper jam
When paper gets stuck somewhere along

parallel interface
A type of interface in which data is
transmitted and received in bytes
rather than bits. Used for local
printing over short distances (10
meters or less).
parallel/serial ports
The printer comes with two interface
connectors, serial and parallel,
located on the lower part of the back
panel. The cable that attaches your
computer and printer is connected
here.
parity
Parity is the addition of one or more
redundant bits of information used to
verify data accuracy. For example, in
ASCII code, seven bits are used to
represent the value of a character and
the eighth bit is for parity. If even
parity is to be used, there must be an
even number of 1 bits in the
character; thus, if the information
bits contain an odd number of 1 bits,
the parity bit is set at 1, otherwise,
it is left as 0. If parity is used in
the transmission of data, both the
computer and the printer must
calculate parity in the same way. The
printer receiving information compares
its parity calculations with those
transmitted by the sending computer.

attaching a single line.
portrait
Portrait refers to printing across the
width of a page (letter style). This
is the opposite of landscape
orientation, which is printing across
the length of the page. The term
portrait is derived from portraits of
people, which are usually vertical in
format. See “orientation” for an
illustration.
print
To produce a paper document using data
received from a host.
print density
Print density refers to the relative
darkness of print on the page. Very
dense print appears totally black.
Less dense print looks lighter, and
solid filled areas may not be totally
black. You can adjust print density
in the printer.
printer commands
Printer commands are sent to the
printer through application software
programs and are used to change
printing variables such as page

resident fonts
Resident fonts are the fonts resident
in the printer when shipped. The
printer’s resident fonts are also
called internal fonts.
restart
To resume a print job run from a point
where it was aborted.
robust
An asynchronous protocol using the
XON/XOFF handshake. It is different
from normal XON/XOFF, because in the
Robust protocol an XON is sent every
one second by the printer and XOFF is
only sent when the printer experiences
a buffer full and cannot receive any
more data. The normal XON/XOFF
handshake operates similarly to
Robust, but the printer only sends an
XON after a printer problem has been
corrected (printer not busy), or
initially when the printer is powered
on and is ready (operational). XOFF
operates the same in both
environments.
ROM
