•
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.
Selecting print media
You can print on a variety of print media, such as plain paper, envelopes, labels,
and transparencies. Always use print media that meet the guidelines for use
with your machine.
• Some print media may meet all of the guidelines in this user’s guide and
still not produce satisfactory results. This may be the result of the sheets
characteristics, 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 specified in this user’s guide.
Guidelines for select the print media
Print media that does not meet the guidelines outlined in this user’s guide may
cause the following problems:
• Using print media that does not meet these specifications may cause
problems or require repairs. Such repairs are not covered by Samsung’s
warranty or service agreements.
•
Poor print quality
•
Increased paper jams
• Make sure not to use the inkjet photo paper with this machine. It could
cause damage to the machine.
•
Premature wear on the machine.
• Using flammable print media can cause a fire.
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 106).
•
Desired outcome: The print media you choose should be appropriate for
your project.
• Use designated print media (see "Print media specifications" on page
106).
• Make sure not to use the inkjet photo paper with this machine. It could
cause damage to the machine.

Print media should be loaded face up with the top edge going into the
multi-purpose tray first and be placed in the center of the tray.
•
Always load only the specified print media to avoid paper jams and print
quality problems (see "Print media specifications" on page 106).
•
Flatten any curl on postcards, envelopes, and labels before loading them
into the multi-purpose tray.

Envelope
•
Do not use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows, coated lining, selfadhesive seals, or other synthetic materials.
Printing successfully on envelopes depends upon the quality of the envelopes.
•
Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes.
To print an envelope, place it as shown in the following figure.
•
Be sure the seam at both ends of the envelope extends all the way to the
corner of the envelope.

•
When selecting envelopes, consider the following factors:
-
Weight: should not exceed 90 g/m2 otherwise; jams may occur.
-
Construction: should lie flat with less than 6 mm (0.25 inches) curland
should not contain air.
-
Condition: should not be wrinkled, nicked, nor damaged.
-
Temperature: should resist 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.
Acceptable
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 for 0.1 second about 170 °C (338 °F). 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.
2. Menu Overview and Basic Setup
44
Media and tray
Labels
•
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.
To avoid damaging the machine, use only labels designed for use in laser
printers.
Card stock/ Custom-sized paper
•
When selecting labels, consider the following factors:
-
Adhesives: 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: Must lie flat with no more than 13 mm (0.5 inches) of curl in any
direction.
-
Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other
indications of separation.

3. Maintenance
61
Storing the toner cartridge
Toner cartridges contain components that are sensitive to light, temperature
and humidity. Samsung suggests users follow these recommendations to
ensure optimal performance, highest quality, and longest life from your new
Samsung toner cartridge.
Store this cartridge in the same environment in which the printer will be used.
This should be in controlled temperature and humidity conditions. The toner
cartridge should remain in its original and 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.
1
Handling instructions
•
Do not touch the surface of the photoconductive 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.
2
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, follow the instructions below to store the toner cartridge
properly.
•
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 it
were installed in the machine.
•
Do not store consumables in any of the following conditions:
-
Temperature greater than 30 °C (86 °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.
Toner cartridge usage
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 brand toner
cartridges.
3. Maintenance
62
Storing the toner cartridge
3
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 yield may vary
depending on the print density of the pages you print on, operating
environment, percentage of image area, printing interval, media type and/or
media size. For example, if you print a lot of graphics, the consumption of the
toner is higher and you may need to change the cartridge more often.
3. Maintenance
63
Redistributing toner
When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life:
•
White streaks or light printing occurs and/or density variation side to side.
•
The Status LED blinks orange. The toner-related message saying that the toner is low may appear on the display.
•
The computer’s Samsung Printing Status program window appears on the computer telling you which cartridge is low on toner (see "Using Samsung Printer
Status" on page 239).
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.
Illustrations in this user’s guide may differ from your machine depending on the model and options installed. Check your machine type (see "Front view" on page 17).
• 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 area of the toner cartridge. Use the handle on the cartridge to avoid touching this area.
• Do not use sharp objects such as a knife or scissors to open the toner cartridge package. They might scratch the drum of 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.

Cleaning the machine
If printing quality problems occur or if you use your machine in a dusty enviroment, you need to clean your machine regularly to keep it in the best printing condition
and use your machine longer.
• Cleaning the cabinet of the machine with cleaning materials containing large amounts of alcohol, solvents, 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 a 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.
9
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.
10
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.
Use a dry lint free cloth when 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. Printing quality problems can occur and cause damage to the machine.

Understanding display messages
a. When the toner cartridge has reached its end of life, the machine will stop printing.
In this case, you can choose to stop or continue printing from the SyncThru™Web Service.
(Settings > Machine Settings > System > Setup > Supplies Management > Toner
Cartridge Stop) or Samsung Easy Printer Manager (Device Settings > System > Supplies
Management > Toner Cartridge Stop). Turning off this option and continuing to print may
damage the device's system.
b. Estimated cartridge life means the expected or estimated cartridge, which indicates the
average capacity of print-outs and is designed pursuant to ISO/IEC 19752. The number of
pages may be affected by the percentage of image area, operating environment, printing
interval, media type and media size.
Samsung does not recommend using a non-genuine Samsung toner
cartridge such as refilled or remanufactured. Samsung cannot guarantee a
non-genuine Samsung toner cartridge's quality. Service or repair required
as a result of using non-genuine Samsung toner cartridges will not be
covered under the machine warranty.

Regulatory compliance statements
Wireless guidance
Low power, Radio LAN devices (radio frequency (RF) wireless communication
devices), operating in the 2.4 GHz/5 GHz Band, may be present (embedded) in
your printer system. The following section is a general overview of
considerations while operating a wireless device.
Additional limitations, cautions, and concerns for specific countries are listed in
the specific country sections (or country group sections). The wireless devices in
your system are only qualified for use in the countries identified by the Radio
Approval Marks on the system rating label. If the country you will be using the
wireless device in, is not listed, contact your local Radio Approval agency for
requirements. Wireless devices are closely regulated and use may not be
allowed.
The power output of the wireless device or devices that may be embedded in
your printer is well below the RF exposure limits as known at this time. Because
the wireless devices (which may be embedded into your printer) emit less
energy than is allowed in radio frequency safety standards and
recommendations, manufacturer believes these devices are safe for use.
Regardless of the power levels, care should be taken to minimize human contact
during normal operation.
As a general guideline, a separation of 20 cm (8 inches) between the wireless
device and the body, for use of a wireless device near the body (this does not
include extremities) is typical. This device should be used more than 20 cm (8
inches) from the body when wireless devices are on and transmitting.
This transmitter must not be collocated or operation in conjunction with any
other antenna or transmitter.
Some circumstances require restrictions on wireless devices. Examples of
common restrictions are listed below:
Radio frequency wireless communication can interfere with
equipment on commercial aircraft. Current aviation regulations
require wireless devices to be turned off while traveling in an airplane.
IEEE 802.11 (also known as wireless Ethernet) and Bluetooth
communication devices are examples of devices that provide wireless
communication.
In environments where the risk of interference to other devices or
services is harmful or perceived as harmful, the option to use a wireless
device may be restricted or eliminated. Airports, Hospitals, and
Oxygen or flammable gas laden atmospheres are limited examples
where use of wireless devices may be restricted or eliminated. When in
environments where you are uncertain of the sanction to use wireless
devices, ask the applicable authority for authorization prior to use or
turning on the wireless device.
5. Appendix
122
Regulatory information
Every country has different restrictions on the use of wireless devices.
Since your system is equipped with a wireless device, when traveling
between countries with your system, check with the local Radio
Approval authorities prior to any move or trip for any restrictions on
the use of a wireless device in the destination country.
If your system came equipped with an internal embedded wireless
device, do not operate the wireless device unless all covers and shields
are in place and the system is fully assembled.
Wireless devices are not user serviceable. Do not modify them in any
way. Modification to a wireless device will void the authorization to
use it. Contact manufacturer for service.
Only use drivers approved for the country in which the device will be
used. See the manufacturer System Restoration Kit, or contact
manufacturer Technical Support for additional information.

Overlaya
An overlay is text and/or images stored in the computer hard disk drive (HDD) as a special file format that can be printed on any document.
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.
To use a page overlay, you must create a new page overlay containing your logo or image.
• The overlay document size must be the same as the document you print with the overlay. Do not create an overlay with a
watermark.
• The resolution of the overlay document must be the same as that of the document you will print with the overlay.

• The paper is too rough and a lot of dirt from paper falls to the inner components within the machine, so the transfer roller may be
dirty. Clean the inside of your machine (see "Cleaning the machine" on page 75).
• The paper path may need cleaning. Clean the inside of your machine (see "Cleaning the machine" on page 75).
If these steps do not correct the problem, contact a service representative.

Printing quality problems
Condition
Vertical lines
Suggested solutions
If black vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The surface (drum part) of the toner cartridge inside the machine has probably been scratched. Remove the toner cartridge and
install a new one (see "Replacing the toner cartridge" on page 66).
If white vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The surface of the LSU part inside the machine may be dirty. Clean the inside of your machine (see "Cleaning the machine" on page
75). If these steps do not correct the problem, contact a service representative.
Black or color background
If the amount of background shading becomes unacceptable:
• Change to a lighter weight paper.
• Check the environmental conditions: very dry conditions or a high level of humidity (higher than 80% RH) can increase the amount
of background shading.
• Remove the old toner cartridge and install a new one (see "Replacing the toner cartridge" on page 66).
• Thoroughly redistribute the toner (see "Redistributing toner" on page 64).
Toner smear
• Clean the inside of the machine (see "Cleaning the machine" on page 75).
• Check the paper type and quality.
• Remove the toner cartridge and install a new one (see "Replacing the toner cartridge" on page 66).
6. Troubleshooting
256
Printing quality problems
Condition
Vertical repetitive defects
Suggested solutions
If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of the page at even intervals:
• The toner cartridge may be damaged. If you still have the same problem, remove the toner cartridge and, install a new one (see
"Replacing the toner cartridge" on page 66).
• 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. Contact a service representative.
Background scatter
A
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.
Or select Thick from the Printing Preferences window (see "Opening printing preferences" on page 49).
• If background scatter covers the entire surface area of a printed page, adjust the print resolution through your software application
or in Printing Preferences (see "Opening printing preferences" on page 49). Ensure the correct paper type is selected. For example:
If Thicker Paper is selected, but Plain Paper actually used, an overcharging can occur causing this copy quality problem.
• If you are using a new toner cartridge, redistribute the toner first (see "Redistributing toner" on page 64).
Toner particles are around bold
characters or pictures
The toner might not adhere properly to this type of paper.
• Change the printer option and try again. Go to Printing Preferences, click the Paper tab, and set the paper type to Recycled (see
"Opening printing preferences" on page 49).
• Ensure the correct paper type is selected. For example: If Thicker Paper is selected, but Plain Paper actually used, an overcharging
can occur causing this copy quality problem.

Suggested solutions
• Clean the inside of the machine (see "Cleaning the machine" on page 75).
• Check the paper type, thickness, and quality.
• Remove the toner cartridge and then, install a new one (see "Replacing the toner cartridge" on page 66).
If the problem persists, the machine may require repair. Contact a service representative.
Character voids
Character voids are white areas within parts of characters that should be solid black:
• You may be printing on the wrong surface of the paper. Remove the paper and turn it around.
A
Horizontal stripes
• The paper may not meet paper specifications.
If horizontally aligned black streaks or smears appear:
• The toner cartridge may be installed improperly. Remove the cartridge and reinsert it.
• The toner cartridge may be defective. Remove the toner cartridge and install a new one (see "Replacing the toner cartridge" on
page 66).
If the problem persists, the machine may require repairing. Contact a service representative.

Printing quality problems
Condition
Curl
Suggested solutions
If the printed paper is curled or paper does not feed into the machine:
• Turn the stack of paper over in the tray. Also try rotating the paper 180° in the tray.
• Change the printer’s paper option and try again. Go to Printing Preferences, click the Paper tab, and set type to Thin (see
"Opening printing preferences" on page 49).
• An unknown image
repetitively appears on a few
sheets
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 altitude setting for your machine (see
"Altitude adjustment" on page 205).
• Loose toner
• Light print or contamination
occurs

Common Windows problems
Condition
Suggested solutions
“File in Use” message appears during
installation.
Exit all software applications. Remove all software from the startup group, then restart Windows. Reinstall the printer driver.
“General Protection Fault”, “Exception
OE”, “Spool 32”, or “Illegal Operation”
messages appear.
Close all other applications, reboot Windows and try printing again.
“Fail To Print”, “A printer timeout error
occurred” message 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 completed, check the connection and/or whether an error has occurred.
Samsung Printer Experience is not
shown when you click more settings.
Samsung Printer Experience is not installed. Download the app from the Windows Store and install it.
Machine information is not displayed
when you click the device in the Devices
and Printers.
Check the Printer properties. Click the Ports tab.

Common Mac problems
Condition
The machine does not print PDF files
correctly. Some parts of graphics, text, or
illustrations are missing.
Suggested solutions
Printing the PDF file as an image may enable the file to print. Turn on Print As Image from the Acrobat printing options.
It will take longer to print when you print a PDF file as an image.
Some letters are not displayed normally
during cover page printing.
Mac OS cannot create the font while printing the cover page. The English alphabet and numbers are displayed normally on
the cover page.
When printing a document in Mac with

Operating system problems
3
Common Linux problems
Condition
Suggested solutions
When printing more than one copy, the
second copy does not print.
The problem occurs on Ubuntu 12.04 due to the problem in standard CUPS filter 'pdftops'. Update 'cups-filters' package to
version 1.0.18 to fix the problem ('pdftops' is a part of 'cups-filters' package).
Unchecking the collate option in the
Print Dialog does not work.
For some distributions, GNOME Print Dialog has an issue handling the collate option. As workaround, set the default value
of collate option to False using the system's printing utility(execute "system-config-printer" in the Terminal program).
Printing always works with duplex.
This duplex issue was in Ubuntu 9.10 CUPS package. Update CUPS version to 1.4.1-5ubuntu2.2.
Printer is not added through system's
printing utility.
The problem occurs on Debian 7 due to the defect in 'system-config-printer' package of the Debian 7 (http://
bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=662813 in Debian bug tracking system). Please use another way to add printer
(CUPS WebUI for example)
Paper size and orientation are disabled
in the Print Dialog when opening text
files.
The problem occurs on Fedora 19 and it's related to 'leafpad' text editor on Fedora 19. Please use other text editors like
'gedit'.
Refer to the Linux User’s Guide that came with your computer for further information on Linux error messages.

Common PostScript problems
The following situations are PS language specific and may occur when several printer languages are used.
Problem
The PostScript file cannot be
printed
Possible cause
The PostScript driver may not be installed
correctly.
Solution
• Install the PostScript driver (see "Software Installation" on page 129).
• Print a configuration page and verify that the PS version is available for
printing.
• If the problem persists, contact a service representative.
Limit Check Error report prints
The print job was too complex.
You might need to reduce the complexity of the page or install more memory.
A PostScript error page prints
The print job may not be PostScript.
Make sure that the print job is a PostScript job. Check to see whether the software
application expected a setup or PostScript header file to be sent to the machine.
The optional tray is not
selected in the driver
The printer driver has not been configured to
recognize the optional tray.
Open the driver properties, select the Device Options tab, and set the tray option
(see "Setting Device Options" on page 70).
When printing a document in
Mac with Acrobat Reader 6.0 or
higher, colors print incorrectly
The resolution setting in the printer driver may
not be matched with the one in Acrobat Reader.
Make sure that the resolution setting in your printer driver matches the one in
Acrobat Reader.

Glossary
AppleTalk
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.
802.11
802.11 is a set of standards for wireless local area network (WLAN)
communication, developed by the IEEE LAN/MAN Standards Committee (IEEE
802).
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.
AppleTalk is a proprietary suite of protocols developed by Apple, Inc for
computer networking. It was included in the original Mac (1984) and is now
deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP networking.
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 white.
BMP
A bitmapped graphics format used internally by the Microsoft Windows
graphics subsystem (GDI), and used commonly as a simple graphics file format
on that platform.
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.
BOOTP
Bootstrap Protocol. A network protocol used by a network client to obtain its IP
address automatically. This is usually done in the bootstrap process of
computers or operating systems running on them. The BOOTP servers assign
the IP address from a pool of addresses to each client. BOOTP enables 'diskless
workstation' computers to obtain an IP address prior to loading any advanced
operating system.
Glossary
274
Glossary
Collation
DADF
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.
A Duplex Automatic Document Feeder (DADF) is a scanning unit that will
automatically feed and turn over an original sheet of paper so that the machine
can scan on both sides of the paper.
Control Panel
Default
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.
The value or setting that is in effect when taking a printer out of its box state,
reset, or initialized.
Coverage
DHCP
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.
A Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a client-server networking
protocol. A DHCP server provides configuration parameters specific to the DHCP
client host requesting, generally, information required by the client host to
participate on an IP network. DHCP also provides a mechanism for allocation of
IP addresses to client hosts.
CSV
DIMM
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.
Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM), a small circuit board that holds memory.
DIMM stores all the data within the machine like printing data, received fax data.
DLNA
The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a standard that allows devices on
a home network to share information with each other across the network.
Glossary
275
Glossary
DNS
Duty Cycle
The Domain Name Server (DNS) is a system that stores information associated
with domain names in a distributed database on networks, such as the Internet.
Duty cycle is the page quantity which does not affect printer performance for a
month. Generally the printer has the lifespan limitation such as pages per year.
The lifespan means the average capacity of print-outs, usually within the
warranty period. For example, if the duty cycle is 48,000 pages per month
assuming 20 working days, a printer limits 2,400 pages a day.
Dot Matrix Printer
A dot matrix printer refers to a type of computer printer with a print head that
runs back and forth on the page and prints by impact, striking an ink-soaked
cloth ribbon against the paper, much like a typewriter.
ECM
DPI
Error Correction Mode (ECM) is an optional transmission mode built into Class 1
fax machines or fax modems. It automatically detects and corrects errors in the
fax transmission process that are sometimes caused by telephone line noise.
Dots Per Inch (DPI) is a measurement of resolution that is used for scanning and
printing. Generally, higher DPI results in a higher resolution, more visible detail
in the image, and a larger file size.
Emulation
Emulation is a technique of one machine obtaining the same results as another.
Duplex
A mechanism that will automatically turn over a sheet of paper so that the
machine can print (or scan) on both sides of the paper. A printer equipped with
a Duplex Unit can print on both sides of paper during one print cycle.
An emulator duplicates the functions of one system with a different system, so
that the second system behaves like the first system. Emulation focuses on exact
reproduction of external behavior, which is in contrast to simulation, which
concerns an abstract model of the system being simulated, often considering its
internal state.
Glossary

Glossary
Ethernet
Fuser Unit
Ethernet is a frame-based computer networking technology for local area
networks (LANs). It defines wiring and signaling for the physical layer, and frame
formats and protocols for the media access control (MAC)/data link layer of the
OSI model. Ethernet is mostly standardized as IEEE 802.3. It has become the most
widespread LAN technology in use during the 1990s to the present.
The part of a laser printer that fuses the toner onto the print media. It consists of
a heat roller and a pressure roller. After toner is transferred onto the paper, the
fuser unit applies heat and pressure to ensure that the toner stays on the paper
permanently, which is why paper is warm when it comes out of a laser printer.
Gateway
EtherTalk
A suite of protocols developed by Apple Computer for computer networking. It
was included in the original Mac (1984) and is now deprecated by Apple in favor
of TCP/IP networking.
A connection between computer networks, or between a computer network
and a telephone line. It is very popular, as it is a computer or a network that
allows access to another computer or network.
Grayscale
FDI
Foreign Device Interface (FDI) is a card installed inside the machine to allow a
third party device such as a coin operated device or a card reader. Those devices
allow the pay-for-print service on your machine.
A shades of gray that represent light and dark portions of an image when color
images are converted to grayscale; colors are represented by various shades of
gray.
Halftone
FTP
A File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a commonly used protocol for exchanging files
over any network that supports the TCP/IP protocol (such as the Internet or an
intranet).
An image type that simulates grayscale by varying the number of dots. Highly
colored areas consist of a large number of dots, while lighter areas consist of a
smaller number of dots.

The 1284 parallel port standard was developed by the Institute of Electrical and
Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The term "1284-B" refers to a specific connector
type on the end of the parallel cable that attaches to the peripheral (for example,
a printer).
The Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) defines a standard protocol for printing as
well as managing print jobs, media size, resolution, and so forth. IPP can be used
locally or over the Internet to hundreds of printers, and also supports access
control, authentication, and encryption, making it a much more capable and
secure printing solution than older ones.
Intranet
IPX/SPX
A private network that uses Internet Protocols, network connectivity, and
possibly the public telecommunication system to securely share part of an
organization's information or operations with its employees. Sometimes the
term refers only to the most visible service, the internal website.
IPX/SPX stands for Internet Packet Exchange/Sequenced Packet Exchange. It is a
networking protocol used by the Novell NetWare operating systems. IPX and
SPX both provide connection services similar to TCP/IP, with the IPX protocol
having similarities to IP, and SPX having similarities to TCP. IPX/SPX was
primarily designed for local area networks (LANs), and is a very efficient protocol
for this purpose (typically its performance exceeds that of TCP/IP on a LAN).

no loss of accuracy or quality, which was designed for compression of binary
images, particularly for faxes, but can also be used on other images.
MAC address
Media Access Control (MAC) address is a unique identifier associated with a
network adapter. MAC address is a unique 48-bit identifier usually written as 12
hexadecimal characters grouped in pairs (e. g., 00-00-0c-34-11-4e). This address
is usually hard-coded into a Network Interface Card (NIC) by its manufacturer,
and used as an aid for routers trying to locate machines on large networks.
