4 Selecting and loading print
Selecting print media
media
You can print on a variety of print media, such as plain paper, labels, and
transparencies. Always use print media that meet the guidelines for use
with your machine. Print media that does not meet the guidelines outlined
in this user’s guide may cause the following problems:
This chapter introduces you how to load originals and print media into
your machine.
• Poor print quality
This chapter includes:
•
Selecting print media
•
Loading paper in the tray
•
Setting the paper size and type
• 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 later in this section.
• 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.
Note
• 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 Samsung has no control.
• Before purchasing large quantities of print media, ensure that it
meets the requirements specified in this user’s guide.
Caution
Using print media that does not meet these specifications may
cause problems, requiring repairs. Such repairs are not covered
by Samsung’s warranty or service agreements.
4.1
<Selecting and loading print media>
Guidelines for selecting and storing print media
When selecting or loading paper, or other print materials, keep these
guidelines in mind:
• Always use print media that conform with the specifications listed on
page 4.3.
• Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper can cause
paper jams and poor print quality.
• For the best print quality, use only high quality copier grade paper
specifically recommended for use in laser machines.
• Avoid using the following media types:
- Paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or a texture that is too
smooth or too rough
- Erasable bond paper
- Multi-paged paper
- Synthetic paper and thermally reactive paper
- Carbonless paper and Tracing paper.
Use of these types of paper could result in paper jams, chemical
smells, and damage to your machine.
• Store print media in its ream wrapper until you are ready to use it.
Place cartons on pallets or shelves, not on the floor. Do not place
heavy objects on top of the paper, whether it is packaged or
unpackaged. Keep it away from moisture or other conditions that can
cause it to wrinkle or curl.
• Store unused print media at temperatures between 15 °C and 30 °C.
The relative humidity should be between 10% and 70%.
• Store unused print media in a moisture-proof wrap, such as a plastic
container or bag, to prevent dust and moisture from contaminating
your paper.
• Load special media types one sheet at a time through the tray to avoid
paper jams.
• To prevent print media, such as transparencies and label sheets, from
sticking together, remove them as they print out.

<Selecting and loading print media>
Guidelines for special print media
Media type
Guidelines
Transparencies
• To avoid damaging the machine, use only
transparencies designed for use in laser
machines.
• Transparencies used in the machine must be
able to withstand the machine’s fusing
temperature. Check your machine’s specification
to view the fusing temperature, see page 9.1.
• Place them on a flat surface after removing them
from the machine.
• Do not leave them 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.
Media type
Labels
• To avoid damaging the machine, use only labels
designed for use in laser machines.
• When selecting labels, consider the following
factors:
- Adhesives: The adhesive material should be
stable at your machine’s fusing temperature.
Check your machine’s specification to view the
fusing temperature, see page 9.1.
- 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.
Card stock or
custom-sized
materials
• Do not print on media smaller than 105 mm wide
or 148 mm long.
• In the software application, set margins at least
6.4 mm away from the edges of the material.
Caution
Recommended media: Transparency for a
Color Laser Printers produced by HP,
Xerox and 3M. It is not recommended to
use paperbacked transparencies such as
Xerox 3R91334, which can cause a jam or
be scratched.
Note
If your machine does not feed the
transparency print media properly, put a
blank sheet of paper under the
transparency, and try again.
Guidelines
Note
If you experience jams with card stock
feeding, turn the paper around and try
again.
Preprinted
paper
4.4
• Letterhead must be printed with heat-resistant
ink that will not melt, vaporize, or release
hazardous emissions when subjected to the
printer’s fusing temperature for 0.1 second.
Check your machine’s specification to view the
fusing temperature, see page 9.1.
• Letterhead ink must be non-flammable and
should not adversely affect printer rollers.
• Forms and letterhead should be sealed in a
moisture-proof wrapping to prevent changes
during storage.
• Before you load preprinted paper, such as forms
and letterhead, verify that the ink on the paper is
dry. During the fusing process, wet ink can come
off preprinted paper, reducing print quality.

Maintaining the cartridge
Redistributing toner
When a toner is low the toner LED( ) blinks slowly.
It may cause faded or light areas on a paper. You can temporarily improve
print quality by redistributing the toner.
For detailed information about error message, see page 7.7.
Toner cartridge storage
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.
Note
In some cases, white streaks or light printing will still occur even
after you have redistributed the toner.
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.
1
Press the top cover lever, completely open the top cover.
2
Grasp the handles on the toner cartridge and pull to remove the
cartridge from the machine.
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
• Correct side up in a horizontal position (not standing on end)
• Do not store consumables in;
- Temperature greater than 40°C (104°F).
- Humidity range less than 20% and not 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 nonSamsung brand toner cartridges in your printer including generic, store
brand, refilled, or remanufactured toner cartridges.
Caution
• Samsung’s printer warranty does not cover damage to the
machine caused by the use of a refilled, remanufactured, or
non-Samsung 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

• Follow the procedures on page 4.5. Ensure that the adjustable guides
are positioned correctly.
• 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. (see page 4.6)
• Ensure that the recommended side of the print media is facing down in
the tray.

Printing quality problems
Condition
If the inside of the machine is dirty or paper has been loaded improperly,
you may notice a reduction in print quality. See the table below to clear
the problem.
Condition
Suggested solutions
Light or faded print
If a vertical white streak or faded area appears
on the page:
• The toner supply is low. You may be able to
temporarily extend the toner cartridge life. If
this does not improve the print quality, install
a new toner cartridge.
• The paper may not meet paper
specifications; for example, the paper may
be too moist or rough. (See "Specifications
on print media" on page 4.3.)
• If the entire page is light, the print resolution
setting is too low or the toner save mode is
on. Adjust the print resolution and turn the
toner save mode off. See the help screen of
the printer driver and refer to Software
section, respectively.
• A combination of faded or smeared defects
may indicate that the toner cartridge needs
cleaning. Contact a service representative.
• The surface of the LSU part inside the
machine may be dirty. Clean the LSU (see
page 6.2).
Toner specks
Dropouts
Suggested solutions
White Spots
White spots appear on the page:
• The paper path may need cleaning. Contact
a service representative.
Vertical lines
If black vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The toner cartridge has probably been
scratched. Remove the toner cartridge and
install a new one.
If white vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The surface of the LSU part inside the
machine may be dirty. Clean the LSU (see
page 6.2).
• The paper may not meet specifications; for
example, the paper may be too moist or
rough. (See "Specifications on print
media" on page 4.3.)
• The paper path may need cleaning. Contact
a service representative.
Color or Black
background
If the amount of background shading becomes
unacceptable:
• Change to a lighter weight paper. (See
"Specifications on print media" on page 4.3.)
• Check the environmental conditions: very
dry conditions (low humidity) or a high level
of humidity (higher than 80% RH) can
increase the amount of background
shading.
• Remove the old toner cartridge, and then
install a new one. (See "Replacing the toner
cartridge" on page 6.5.)
Toner smear
• Clean the inside of the machine. Contact a
service representative to clean the inside of
the machine.
• Check the paper type and quality. (See
"Specifications on print media" on page 4.3.)
If faded areas, generally rounded, occur
randomly on the page:
• A single sheet of paper may be defective.
Try reprinting the job.
• The moisture content of the paper is uneven
or the paper has moist spots on its surface.
Try a different brand of paper. (See
"Specifications on print media" on page 4.3.)
• The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing
processes can cause some areas to reject
toner. Try a different kind or brand of paper.
• If these steps do not correct the problem,
contact a service representative.

<Troubleshooting>
Condition
Vertical repetitive
defects
Background scatter
Misformed
characters
Page skew
Suggested solutions
Condition
If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side
of the page at even intervals:
• Clean the inside of the machine. Contact a
service representative to clean the inside of
the machine. After cleaning the inside of the
machine, if you still have the same
problems, install a new toner cartridge of the
problem color. See "Replacing the toner
cartridge" on page 6.5.
• 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.
Suggested solutions
Curl or wave
• Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
• Check the paper type and quality. Both high
temperature and humidity can cause paper
curl. (See "Specifications on print media" on
page 4.3.)
• Turn the stack of paper over in the tray. Also
try rotating the paper 180° in the tray.
Wrinkles or creases
• Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
• Check the paper type and quality. (See
"Specifications on print media" on page 4.3.)
• Turn the stack of paper over in the tray. Also
try rotating the paper 180° in the tray.
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 covers the entire
surface area of a printed page, adjust the
print resolution through your software
application or in printer properties.
Back of printouts
are dirty
Check for leaking toner. Clean the inside of
the machine. Contact a service
representative.
• If characters are improperly formed and
producing hollow images, the paper stock
may be too slick. Try different paper. (See
"Specifications on print media" on page 4.3.)
• If characters are improperly formed and
producing a wavy effect, the scanner unit
may need service. Contact a service
representative.
Black pages
• The toner cartridge may not be installed
properly. Remove the cartridge and reinsert
it.
• The toner cartridge may be defective and
need replacing. Remove the toner cartridge
and install a new one. (See "Replacing the
toner cartridge" on page 6.5.)
• The machine may require repair. Contact a
service representative.
• Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
• Check the paper type and quality. (See
"Specifications on print media" on page 4.3.)
• Ensure that the paper or other material is
loaded correctly and the guides are not too
tight or too loose against the paper stack.

10 Glossary
LED
A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor device that indicates the
status of a machine.
Control Panel
Print Media
A control panel is a flat area where control or monitoring instruments are
displayed. They are typically found in top or front of the machine.
Media such as papers, labels, and transparencies which can be used on
a printer, a scanner, a fax or, a copier.
Coverage
OPC Drum
This is the printing term used for toner usage measurement on printing
and generally used as 5% coverage. 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 over 5%
and at the same time, toner usage will be as much as the coverage.
A mechanism that makes a virtual image for print using a laser beam
emitted from a laser printer, and it is usually green or gray-colored and
cylinder-shaped. An exposing unit of a drum is slowly worn away by its
usage of the printer, and it should be replaced appropriately since it
becomes scratched from grit in paper.
Default
PDF
The first set values.
Portable Document Format (PDF) is a proprietary file format developed
by Adobe Systems for representing two-dimensional documents in a
device-independent and resolution-independent format.
DPI
This is the measurement of resolution which is used for printing or
scanning. Generally, more dots per inch result in a higher resolution,
more visible detail in the image, and a larger file size.
PPM
Pages Per Minute. PPM shows the printer's speed, how many pages a
printer can actually print per minute.
Duty Cycle
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, which is not small amount.
PRN file
An interface for a device driver, this allows software to interact with the
device driver using standard input/output system calls, which simplifies
many tasks.
Resolution
Fuser Unit
The sharpness of an image, measured in dots per inch (dpi). The higher
the dpi, the greater the resolution.
This is the part of a laser printer that melts the toner onto the print media.
It consists of two hot rollers. 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.
Toner cartridge
It is a kind of bottle within a machine like a printer which contains toner.
Toner is a powder used in laser printers and photocopiers which forms the
text and images on the printed paper. Toner can be melted by the heat of
the fuser, causing it to bind to the fibers in the paper.
Grayscale
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.
URL
Uniform Resource Locator (URL) is the global address of documents and
resources on the Internet. The first part of the address indicates what
protocol to use, the second part specifies the IP address or the domain
name where the resource is located.
Halftone
This is 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.
USB
Universal serial bus (USB) is a standard that was developed by the USB
Implementers Forum, Inc., to connect computers and peripherals. Unlike
the parallel port, USB is designed to concurrently connect a single
computer USB port to multiple peripherals.
ISO
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an
international standard-setting body composed of representatives from
national standards bodies. It produces world-wide industrial and
commercial standards.

What is an Overlay?
Dear ABC
Regards
WORLD BEST
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
preprinted forms and letterhead paper. Rather than using
preprinted letterhead, you can create an overlay containing the
exact 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 printer. You need only
tell the printer to print the letterhead overlay on your
document.
