Paper, envelope types, transparencies
and adhesive labels
We recommend the following guidelines when selecting paper and
envelopes for use in this printer:
>
All paper and envelopes should be stored flat and away from
moisture, direct sunlight and heat sources.
>
Use envelopes designed for use in laser type printers.
>
The use of heavily laid or textured paper will seriously impact
on the life of the image drum and give poor print quality. Print
quality can be improved by changing the media setting to
‘Ultra Heavy’. However, this will reduce the output speed and
prevent the use of the duplex option.
>
Don’t use very smooth, shiny or glossy paper.
>
Don’t use heavily embossed headed paper, very rough paper
or paper that has a large grain difference between the two
sides.
>
Don’t use paper with perforations, cut-outs or ragged edges.
>
Don’t use envelopes with windows or metal clasps.
>
Don’t use envelopes with self sealing flaps.
>
Don’t use damp, damaged or curled paper and envelopes.
>
Don’t use carbon paper, NCR paper, photosensitive paper,
pressure sensitive paper or thermal transfer paper.
>
Media must be designed for use in colour laser printers and
photocopiers.
>
Must be able to withstand 200°C for 0.1 sec.
>
Labels should cover entire carrier sheet.
>
Carrier sheet or adhesive must not be exposed to any part of
the printer.

PAPER FEED AND EXIT
Selection of which paper feed and which paper exit to use for printing

CMY 100% DENSITY
Disable; enable
Selects enable/disable 100% output
against the CMY100% TRC
compensation. Ordinarily, the TRC
compensation function controls the
appropriate print density; thus, 100%
output is not always enabled.
Selecting ENABLE will allow 100%
output. In actual printing, the TCR
values, too, are controlled by Colour
Matching. This function is used for
special purposes; for example, to
specify the colour for CMYK colour
space in PS.

INTERFACES
YOUR PRINTER IS EQUIPPED WITH A SELECTION OF DATA INTERFACES:
1.
Parallel – For direct connection to a PC. This port requires a
bi-directional (IEEE 1384 compliant) parallel cable.
2.
USB – For connection to a PC running Windows 98 or above
(not Windows 95 upgraded to Windows 98) or Macintosh. This
port requires a cable conforming to USB version 1.1 or above.
The operation of a printer is not assured if a USB compatible
device is connected concurrently with other USB-compatible
machines.
When connecting multiple printers of the same type, they
appear as *****, ***** (2), ***** (3), etc. These numbers
depend on the order of connecting or turning on each printer.
3.
Ethernet – For network cable connection. This port is standard
on all “n” models, optional on others.

If you are connecting your printer directly to a stand alone
computer proceed to the Chapter headed “Printer Drivers”.
>
If your printer is to be installed as a network printer, please
refer to the relevant section in the User’s Guide for the network
interface card for further details on how to configure the
network connection, before installing the printer drivers.
NOTE
Administrator’s authority is required when installing using a network

PRINTER DRIVERS
CD1 contains the printer drivers. Please refer to the readme file on this
CD for the latest information on printer driver installation.
WHICH PRINTER DRIVER?
Your printer comes with Windows drivers for PCL and PostScript (PS).
You can install either of these, or both if you wish. Which driver you
choose depends on your application.
>
If you use TrueType fonts and you do not print PostScript
(including “.eps” files) graphics, choose the PCL driver. This
will be more efficient and give good results.
>
If you use PostScript fonts or you will be printing PostScript
graphics, choose the PostScript driver. In this situation
performance will be faster and graphics will be printed at their
best quality.
NOTE
The line art graphics in this manual are PostScript. So if you plan to print
parts of this manual choose the PostScript driver. Otherwise the line art
graphics will only print at low resolution.
If your applications vary so much that neither driver seems to cover all
your needs, you could choose to install both. Then select the one you
plan to use most of the time to be your Windows default driver. Most
applications allow you to choose a different printer from within the
print dialogue, so you can print using the alternative driver whenever
you need to. If you install both drivers, simply select the same printer
port (LPT1 or Network Port) during the installation.
1.
With Windows running, insert the printer driver CD-ROM (CD1)
into your CD-ROM drive.
2.
If the CD does not run automatically, use [Start]-[Run...] and
enter E:\setup (where E is your CD-ROM drive) in the Open
field.

OPERATION
The preceding section on Printer Drivers explained how to set up the
default operation of the various features. These were accessed via the
Windows program.
This section explains how to change the printers operation for specific
print jobs when required.
This involves using the same Properties page of the printer driver, but
it is accessed directly from within your Windows application program.
In this view the driver properties page may be more simplified than
the illustrations here, showing only those settings that you wish to
adjust.
Most applications allow the printer properties to be accessed from
within the document print dialogue.
COLOUR PRINTING
The PCL and PostScript printer drivers supplied with this machine
provide several controls for changing the colour output of your
printer. For general use the Auto settings will suffice, providing
reasonable default settings that will produce good results for most
documents.
Many applications have their own colour settings, and these may
override the settings in the printer driver. Please refer to the
documentation for your software application for details on how that
particular program’s colour management functions.
FACTORS THAT AFFECT THE APPEARANCE OF PRINTS
If you wish to manually adjust the colour settings in your printer
driver, please be aware that colour reproduction is a complex topic,
and there are many factors to take into consideration. Some of the
most important factors are listed below.
OPERATION > 86
Differences between the range of colours
a monitor or printer can reproduce
>
Neither a printer nor a monitor is capable of reproducing the
full range of colours visible to the human eye. Each device is
restricted to a certain range of colours. In addition to this, a
printer cannot reproduce all of the colours displayed on a
monitor, and vice versa.
>
Both devices use very different technologies to represent
colour. A monitor uses Red, Green and Blue (RGB) phosphors
(or LCDs), a printer uses Cyan, Yellow, Magenta and Black
(CMYK) toner or ink.
>
A monitor can display very vivid colours such as intense reds
and blues and these cannot be easily produced on any printer
using toner or ink. Similarly, there are certain colours, (some
yellows for example), that can be printed, but cannot be
displayed accurately on a monitor. This disparity between
monitors and printers is often the main reason that printed
colours do not match the colours displayed onscreen.
Viewing conditions
A print can look very different under different lighting conditions. For
example, the colours in a print may look different when viewed
standing next to a sunlit window, compared to how they look under
standard office fluorescent lighting.
Printer driver colour settings
The driver settings for Manual colour can change the appearance of a
print. There are several options available to help match the printed
colours with those displayed onscreen. These options are explained
in subsequent sections of the User Manual.
OPERATION > 87
Monitor settings
The brightness and contrast controls on your monitor can change how
your document looks on-screen. Additionally, your monitor colour
temperature influences how "warm" or "cool" the colours look.
NOTE
Several of the Colour Matching options make reference to your monitor’s
Colour Temperature. Many modern monitors allow the colour
temperature to be adjusted using the monitor’s control panel.
There are several settings found on a typical monitor:
>
5000k Warmest; yellowish lighting, typically used in graphics
arts environments.
>
6500k Cooler; approximates daylight conditions.
>
9300k Cool; the default setting for many monitors and
television sets.
(k = degrees Kelvin, a measurement of temperature)
How your software application displays colour
Some graphics applications such as Corel Draw or Adobe Photoshop
may display colour differently from "office" applications such as
Microsoft Word. Please see your application’s online help or user
manual for more information.
Paper type
The type of paper used can also significantly affect the printed colour.
For example, a printout on recycled paper can look duller than one on
specially formulated glossy paper.
OPERATION > 88
CHOOSING A COLOUR MATCHING METHOD
There is no correct way to achieve a good match between the
document displayed on your monitor, and it's printed equivalent.
There are many factors involved in achieving accurate and
reproducible colour.
However, the following guidelines may help in achieving good colour
output from your printer. There are several suggested methods,
depending on the type of document you are printing.
NOTE
These suggestions are for guidance only. Your results may vary
depending on the application from which you are printing. Some
applications will override any colour matching settings in the printer
driver without warning.
RGB OR CMYK?
The guidelines for choosing a colour matching method makes
distinctions between Red, Green, Blue (RGB) and Cyan, Magenta,
Yellow, Black (CMYK).
Generally, most documents you print will be in RGB format. This is the
most common, and, if you do not know your document’s colour mode,
assume that it is RGB.
Typically CMYK documents are only supported in professional
Desktop Publishing and Graphics applications.
MATCHING PHOTOGRAPHIC IMAGES
RGB only
Oki Colour Matching is a generally a good choice. Select a matching
method appropriate to your monitor.
OPERATION > 89
RGB or CMYK
If you are printing photographic images from a graphics application
such as Adobe Photoshop, you may be able to use Soft-Proofing to
simulate the printed image on your monitor. To do this, you can use
the ICC-Profiles provided by Oki, and then print using the ICC profiles
as the Print Space (or Output space).
MATCHING SPECIFIC COLOURS
(For instance, a Company logo.)
RGB only
>
Oki Colour Matching, and the sRGB setting (PCL or PS driver).
>
PostScript Colour Matching using the Absolute Colorimetric
option.
>
Use the Colour Swatch Utility to print out a chart of RGB
swatches and enter your desired RGB values in your
application's colour picker (PS only).
RGB or CMYK

If you are printing from a graphics application such as Adobe
Photoshop, you may be able to use Soft-Proofing to simulate
the printed image on your monitor. To do this, you can use the

profiles as the Print Space (or Output space) (PS only).
>
Alternatively, use PostScript Colour Matching with the
Absolute Colorimetric setting.
PRINTING VIVID COLOURS

>
Use Oki Colour Matching, with either the Monitor 6500k Vivid,
sRGB or Digital Camera settings (PCL or PS).

Use PostScript Colour Matching with the Saturation option.
OPERATION > 90
PCL DRIVER
COLOUR MATCHING OPTIONS
The Colour Matching options in the PCL driver can be used to help
match your printed colours to the ones displayed on your monitor.
NOTE
The PCL driver’s colour options are only designed to work with RGB data.
If you are printing CMYK data, we recommend you use the PostScript
driver.
To use the colour matching options in the driver:
1.
Access the printer settings page via the [Start] menu.
2.
Highlight the printer name and click on [File] then [Properties].
3.
Click the [Colour] tab.
4.
Select [Manual] for Colour Matching.
5.
Choose from the following options:
Monitor (6500k) Perceptual
Optimised for printing photographs when using a monitor with a
colour temperature of 6500K.
Monitor (6500k) Vivid
Optimised for printing bright colours when using a monitor with a
colour temperature of 6500K. Ideal for office graphics.
Monitor (9300k)
Optimised for printing photographs when using a monitor with a
colour temperature of 9300K.
OPERATION > 91
Digital Camera
Optimised for printing photographs taken with a digital camera. This
tends to produce prints with lighter and brighter colours. For some
photographs, other settings may be better depending on the subjects
and the conditions under which they were taken.
sRGB
Optimised for matching specific colours, such as a company logo
colour. The colours within the printer's colour gamut are printed
without any modification, and only colours that fall outside the
printable colours are modified.
COLOUR SWATCH
The Print Colour Swatch function allows you to print out charts that
contain a range of sample colours. Listed below each sample colour
are the corresponding RGB (Red, Green, Blue) values. This can be
used to pick specific colours in applications that allow you to choose
your own RGB values.
An example of using the Print Colour Swatch function:
You wish to print a logo in a particular shade of red. The steps you
would follow are:
1.
Print a colour swatch, then select the shade of red that best
suits your needs.
2.
Take a note of the RGB value below the particular shade that
you liked.
3.
Using your program’s colour picker, enter these same RGB
values (from step 2), and change the logo to that colour.
NOTE
The RGB colour displayed on your monitor may not necessarily match
what was printed on the colour swatch. If this is the case, it is probably
due to the difference between how your monitor and printer reproduce
colour.
OPERATION > 92
POSTSCRIPT DRIVER
COLOUR MATCHING OPTIONS
The PostScript driver offers several different methods of controlling
the colour output of the printer.
Some of the colour matching options only work on certain types of
data. The table below summarises the various colour-matching
options available in the PostScript driver, and what types of data they
affect.

Perceptual settings are best for printing photographic images
>
Vivid or Digital Camera settings produce brightest colours.
>
sRGB is the best choice for matching specific colours (such as
printing logos).
Monitor (6500k) Perceptual
Optimised for printing photographs when using a monitor with a
colour temperature of 6500K.
OPERATION > 93
Monitor (6500k) Vivid
Optimised for printing bright colours when using a monitor with a
colour temperature of 6500K. Ideal for office graphics and text.
Monitor (9300k)
Optimised for printing photographs when using a monitor with a
colour temperature of 9300K.
Digital Camera
Optimised for printing photographs taken with a digital camera. This
tends to produce prints with lighter and brighter colours. For some
photographs, other settings may be better depending on the subjects
and the conditions under which they were taken.
sRGB
Optimised for matching specific colours, such as a company logo
colour.
The colours within the printer's colour gamut are printed without any
modification, and only colours that fall outwith the printable colours
are modified.
POSTSCRIPT COLOUR MATCHING
This uses PostScript Colour Rendering Dictionaries built-in to the
printer, and affects both RGB and CMYK data.
Rendering Intents
When a document is printed, a conversion takes place from the
document's colour space to the printer colour space. The rendering
intents are essentially a set of rules that determine how this colour
conversion takes place.
The rendering intents that the printer driver provides are listed below:
>
Perceptual
Best choice for printing photographs. Compresses the source
gamut into the printer's gamut whilst maintaining the overall
OPERATION > 94
appearance of an image. This may change the overall
appearance of an image as all the colours are shifted together.
>
Saturation
Best choice for printing bright & saturated colours if you don't
necessarily care how accurate the colours are. This makes it
the recommended choice for graphs, charts, diagrams etc.
Maps fully saturated colours in the source gamut to fully
saturated colours in the printer's gamut.
>
Absolute Colorimetric
Best for printing solid colours and tints, such as Company
logos etc. Matches colours common to both devices exactly,
and clips the out of gamut colours to their nearest printed
equivalent. Tries to print white as it appears onscreen. The
white of a monitor is often very different from paper white, so
this may result in colour casts, especially in the lighter areas of
an image.
>
Relative Colorimetric
Good for proofing CMYK colour images on a desktop printer.
Much like Absolute Colorimetric, except that it scales the
source white to the (usually) paper white; i.e. unlike Absolute
Colorimetric, this attempts to take the paper white into
account.
CMYK INK SIMULATION
Affects CMYK data only.
only
This option simulates what the output will look on a printing press
using the ink types SWOP, Euroscale or Toyo. If using CMYK Ink
Simulation, it is recommended that you switch off all other Printer
Colour Matching; select the No Colour Matching option under the
Colour Match option in the printer driver.
WINDOWS ICM COLOUR MATCHING
>
Windows 98, Me, 2000, XP only.
>
Affects RGB data only.
only
OPERATION > 95
>
ICM is the colour management system built-in to Windows.
Windows ICM uses ICC profiles for your monitor and printer; these
profiles describe the colours that your device is capable of
reproducing. ICC profiles can be associated with your printer via the
Colour Management tab of the printer driver.
Depending on how you have installed the printer driver, the colour
profiles may already be associated with the driver.
To associate ICC Colour Profiles with the printer driver:
1.
Access the printer settings via the [Start] menu.
2.
Highlight the printer name and click on [File] then [Properties].
3.
Click the Colour Management tab.
4.
Under “Colour Profiles currently associated with this printer”,
you should see the names of profiles that match your printer
model. If you do not see any profiles associated with the
driver, click “Add…” and locate the ICC profiles for your printer.
Windows ICM uses the information in these profiles to convert colours
in your documents to colours that the printer can reproduce. The way
in which this conversion is performed can be controlled via the ICM
Intent control in the printer driver.
NOTE
Oki also provide an alternative to Windows ICM with the Colour Match
using ICC Profiles feature. This is similar to Windows ICM, but offers
several additional features.
USING ICC PROFILES
Affects RGB data only.
only
This provides a method of matching RGB colours similar to Windows
ICM matching. The main advantage it has over Windows ICM colour
matching is that it provides a method of printing using both input and
output profiles. Windows ICM matching only allows output profiles to
be chosen.
OPERATION > 96
Input profiles provide information about the colour in the original
device that was used to capture or display the image data. For
example, an input device could be a scanner, digital camera, or
monitor.
Output profiles provide information about the device to which you are
printing.
The Using ICC Profiles function allows both an input profile (e.g.
digital camera), and an output profile (e.g. the C7300 printer) to be
selected. It uses both these profiles to generate a CRD (Colour
Rendering Dictionary), and this is used to match the colours as closely
as possible.
NOTE
This feature may not work for all application programs. However, many
professional graphics applications offer a similar feature in their print
settings, with the ability to choose a source (input) colour space, and a
print (output) colour space.

OVERLAY PRINTING
What are Overlays?
Overlays can be useful for tasks such as printing letterheads, forms,
or invoices, and should reduce the need for pre-printed stationery.
An Overlay can be a combination of graphics, fonts, or text that is
stored inside the printer's flash memory or hard disk, and printed
whenever required. The result is similar to the Watermark feature, but
with the ability to be much more elaborate.
An example of using Overlays:
Suppose that you have added several different files to the printer
using the Storage Device Manager. One file might contain your
company logo, a second file might contain the company address, and
a third file could contain the company mission statement. The Overlay
feature allows these items to be printed in various combinations,
depending on your requirements.
- For example, you could create an Overlay consisting of a single item
such as the file that prints the logo; this could add the company logo
to every document that you print.
- You could create an Overlay that combines all 3 files (the logo,
address and the mission statement), and this would allow all 3 items
to be printed together, similar to a pre-printed letter template.
An overview of the Steps required:
There are essentially 3 steps to using Overlays with the printer:
(a)
Create the document that you wish to use for Overlay
printing (e.g. a letterhead) and generate a PRN file (print
file) using the printer driver.
(b)
Use the Storage Device Manager utility to convert this
PRN file (print file) to a file, and download it to the
printer.
(c)
Use the file(s) you've downloaded to the printer to create
Overlays, and then print your documents.
OPERATION > 134
You don't need to carry out all the steps above every time you wish to
print an overlay. If the files you wish to use have already been
downloaded to the printer, you only need to carry out step (c) above.
This is common in many office environments, where someone has
already set up all the necessary files on the printer, and all the other
users only have to switch on the required settings in the printer driver.
NOTE
>
The internal hard disk must be fitted to the printer to allow for
spooling of the print job before final printing.
>
If the hard disk memory is insufficient for the spooled data, DISK
FULL is displayed and only one copy printed.
>
If the software application being used has a collate print option,
this must be turned OFF for overlay to operate correctly.
>
An overlay may consist of more than one component file.
CREATING DOCUMENTS TO USE AS OVERLAYS
An overlay can be created in any software application that can handle
logos, letterheads, forms, etc. and can print to file.
PCL Driver
To create a print (PRN) file:
1.
From inside your application program, choose [File] then

like your overlay to print.
5.
Try to keep the overlay to a single sheet. Don't use N-up,
duplex, finisher options, etc. until printing the document that
includes the overlay.
6.
Click [OK] in the printer driver dialogue and this should return
you to the application's print dialogue.
7.
Click [Print].
Instead of sending the print job to the printer, this prompts you to
save the print job on your PC's hard disk. Give the file a meaningful
name such as "my template.prn".

to do this.
OPERATION > 136
DOWNLOADING THE PRINT FILE TO USE AS AN OVERLAY
In the previous topic, you created a print (PRN) file on your PC's hard
disk. This topic explains how download this file to the printer using
the Storage Device Manager.
The Storage Device Manager is included with the original software
CDs that were supplied with your printer.
1.
Launch the Storage Device Manager and allow the program to
discover (locate) the printer.
2.
Click on [Project] then [New Project].
3.
Select [Add File to Project] from the Project menu, and select
the PRN file(s) that you created earlier.
PCL: This automatically generates a file BIN file.
Important: At this step, you will see in the project window that the file
(BIN) file is assigned an ID number. You can change this ID number by
double-clicking it, and entering a new one in the ID field.
PostScript: This automatically generates a PostScript hst file. Note
the name that the file is assigned in the Storage Device Manager.
Names are case sensitive.
NOTE
For PCL and PS: This is important because you need to use this ID
number or name when creating overlays in the printer driver.
Therefore, it is recommended you change the ID number or name from
the default value and note it for later use.
4.
Make sure the printer being used is highlighted in the lower
window of the Storage Device Manager.
5.
Select the [Project] menu and then choose [Send Project Files
to Printer].
