ERROR
MANUAL
PAPER
• If you use letterhead paper, load the letterhead paper with the
design facing up. The top edge of the sheet with the logo should
enter the printer first.
• When you load transparency or label sheet with a paper backing,
load with the paper side down.
• If you print on envelopes, load them with the flap side down. The
stamp area is on the right side. The end of the envelope with the
stamp area enters the printer last.
3-8 Paper Handling
Note: Never use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows, coated linings, or
self-stick adhesives. These envelopes may severely damage the printer.
4. Gently insert the print material until the printer starts to pick it,
then let it go. The MANUAL light comes on.
5. Make sure that the paper source, the paper size, and the paper type
are set to the correct value for the print material you are using from
your software application, and start your print job.
6. When the MANUAL and the READY light both are blinking on the
printer operator panel, place another sheet in the manual feed slot.
7. When you are not using the manual tray, raise the tray and slide it
down into place.
Note: If ‘Auto Continue’ option is available in your printer driver and if you
set the option to ‘ON’, the printer will automatically use paper in the
paper cassette if you do not feed paper into the manual feed slot within
15 seconds.
With ‘Auto Continue’ option set to ‘OFF’, the printer will not print
unless you feed paper into the manual feed slot. If you press and hold
the operator panel button for about 4 seconds, the printer uses just
one sheet from the paper cassette and waits for next sheet from the
manual feed slot.
Paper Handling 3-9
Using Rear Output Tray
If you open the rear output tray, the printed paper is placed on the
tray with the printed side facing up. If you experience paper jams,
especially when you load paper, envelopes, or other special media
manually, use the rear output tray.

3-10 Paper Handling
Selecting Paper Types and Feed Source
One of the most important things you can do to assure the best
possible print quality from your printer is to select the correct paper.
Your printer produces letter quality output on most plain bond
papers, including cotton bond and photocopying papers; it does not
require special papers. However, the print quality varies with
different paper types. Be sure to test a small quantity of paper before
you purchase a large quantity.
You can print on any of the following paper types.

Paper Guidelines
When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other special media,
keep these guidelines in mind:
• Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper can
cause paper jams and poor print quality.
• Use cut-sheet paper only. You cannot use multipart paper.
• Use only high quality, copier grade paper. Avoid paper with
embossed lettering, perforations, or texture that is too smooth or too
rough.
• Coloured paper should be of the same high quality as white
photocopy paper. The pigments must withstand the printer’s fusing
temperature of 400 oF (205 oC) for 0.1 second without deterioration.
Do not use paper with a colored coating that was added after the
paper was produced.
• Pre-printed forms must be printed with non-flammable, heatresistant inks that do not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous
emissions when subject to the printer’s approximately 400 oF (205
o
C) fusing temperature for 0.1 second.
• Store paper in its ream wrapper until ready to use. 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.
• During storage, moisture-proof wrap (any plastic container or bag)
should be used to prevent dust and moisture from contaminating
your paper.
• You can use transparencies and labels designed for laser printers.
Transparencies used in the printer must be able to withstand 400 oF
(205 oC), the printer’s maximum temperature.
• Always use paper and other media that conforms with those listed
under ‘Specifications’ on page A-2.
• When you choose envelopes, use only well-constructed envelopes
with sharp, and well creased folds.
- DO NOT use envelopes with clasps and snaps.
- DO NOT use envelopes with windows, coated linings, self-stick
adhesives, or other synthetic materials.
- DO NOT use damaged or poorly made envelopes.

Before You Call For Service
If you’re unable to solve your printer problems, you may want to call for service. Before you
call, however, check these things:
• Is the power cord plugged into the printer?
• Is the power cord plugged directly into a wall outlet?
• Is your printer connected properly to your computer?
• Are all other devices attached to your PC plugged in and turned on?
• Is the wall outlet turned off by any switches?
• Is a print cartridge installed in the printer?
• Is the cover closed completely?
Once you’ve checked all these things, turn your printer off and back on again. If your
printer is still not operating properly, call for service. Contact your point of purchase.
If the READY light is on, print out a test page by pressing and holding the operator panel
button for about 4 seconds until all indicators blink, then let go of the button. Test page lists
your printer model, any option you have installed, and your user default settings. The
service representative will probably ask for this information.
5-14 Troubleshooting and Maintenance
Managing Toner Cartridge
Expected Cartridge Life
The life of your toner cartridge depends on the amount of toner used
in each print job. For instance, when you print a typical business
letter with about 5% page coverage, you can expect a toner cartridge
life of approximately 5,000 pages. (You can check the amount of
printed page by printing a test page. See page 1-6.) The actual number
may vary according to the print density of the page you print. If you
print a lot of graphics, you may need to change the cartridge more
often.
If Econo Mode option is available in your software application
program, you can extend the life of your toner cartridge by using
Econo Mode. Econo Mode uses approximately 50% less toner than
normal printing. The printed image is much lighter, and is adequate
for printing drafts or proofs.
Replacing Toner Cartridge
When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life, white vertical
streaks or hue changes will occur. You can temporarily re-establish
print quality by redistributing the remaining toner in the cartridge.
1. Open the printer cover and remove the toner cartridge.
2. Gently shake the cartridge to distribute the toner evenly inside
the cartridge.
3. Reinstall the cartridge and close the cover.
This is typically successful one time only. When the toner will
eventually run out, print quality problems occur again and the
ERROR light on the operator panel comes on. The toner cartridge
needs to be replaced. See the following page.
Troubleshooting and Maintenance 5-15
To replace the toner cartridge:
1. Open the printer cover by pressing the cover release button, and
raise the printer cover.
2. Remove the old toner cartridge. Follow the instructions printed on
the cartridge box to recycle the used cartridge.
3. Unpack the new toner cartridge, and carefully remove the sealing
tape.
5-16 Troubleshooting and Maintenance
4. Gently shake the cartridge from side to side 5 or 6 times to
distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge.
5. Find the cartridge slots inside the printer, one on each side.
6. Grasp the handle and slide the cartridge down between the
cartridge slots until it drops into place. Then, close the printer
cover.
