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.
Check your machine’s specifications to view the 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 5 mm of curl in any direction.
-
Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other
indications of separation.
•
In the software application, set margins at least 6.4 mm (0.25 inches) away
from the edges of the material.

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.
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 40°C (104°F).
-
Humidity range less than 20% and 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 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.
Estimated cartridge life
Estimated cartridge life the life of the toner cartridge (or imaging unit) 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.

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
46
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 Toner LED blinks orange.
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.
• Before opening the top cover, close the output support first.
• 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.
• Printing even after the toner empty status can cause serious damage to your machine.

Cleaning the machine
If printing quality problems occur or if you use your machine in a dusty environment, 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.
• 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.

Wireless guidance
Low power, Radio LAN type 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.
5. Appendix
84
Regulatory information
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

5. Troubleshooting
173
Printing quality problems
If the inside of the machine is dirty or paper has been loaded improperly, there might be a reduction in print quality. See the table below to clear the problem.
Condition
Light or faded print
Suggested Solutions
• If a vertical white streak or faded area appears on the page, the toner supply is low. Install a new toner cartridge (see "Replacing the
toner cartridge" on page 49).
• If a vertical white streak or faded area still appears on the page even though the machine has enough toner supply, open and close
the front door 3 ~ 4 times (see "Machine overview" on page 17).
• The paper may not meet paper specifications; for example, the paper may be too moist or rough.
• 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.
• A combination of faded or smeared defects may indicate that the toner cartridge needs cleaning. Clean the inside of your machine
(see "Cleaning the machine" on page 55).
• The surface of the LSU part inside the machine may be dirty. Clean the inside of your machine (see "Cleaning the machine" on page
55). If these steps do not correct the problem, contact a service representative.
The top half of the paper is
printed lighter than the rest of
the paper
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

Vertical lines
Suggested Solutions
If black vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The surface (drum part) of the imaging unit inside the machine has probably been scratched. Remove the toner cartridge and install
a new one (see "Replacing the imaging unit" on page 53).
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
55). If these steps do not correct the problem, contact a service representative.
Black 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 imaging unit and install a new one (see "Replacing the imaging unit" on page 53).
• Thoroughly redistribute the toner (see "Redistributing toner" on page 47).
Toner smear
• Clean the inside of the machine (see "Replacing the toner cartridge" on page 49).
• Check the paper type and quality.
• Remove the old imaging unit and install a new one (see "Replacing the imaging unit" on page 53).
5. Troubleshooting
176
Printing quality problems
Condition
Vertical repetitive defects
Suggested Solutions
If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of the page at even intervals:
• The imaging unit may be damaged. If you still have the same problem, remove the imaging unit and, install a new one (see
"Replacing the imaging unit" on page 53).
• 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
Toner particles are around bold
characters or pictures
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 Printing Preferences (see "Opening printing preferences" on page 36). 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 47).
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 36).
• 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.

Common Linux problems
Condition
The machine does not print.
Suggested solutions
• Check if the printer driver is installed in your system. Open Unified Driver Configurator and switch to the Printers tab in Printers
configuration window to look at the list of available machines. Make sure that your machine is displayed on the list. If not, open
Add new printer wizard to set up your device.
• Check if the machine is started. Open Printers configuration and select your machine on the printers list. Look at the description
in the Selected printer pane. If its status contains Stopped string, press the Start button. After that normal operation of the
machine should be restored. The “stopped” status might be activated when some problems in printing occur. For instance, this
could be an attempt to print a document when the port is claimed by a scanning application.
• Ensure the port is not busy. Since functional components of machine (printer and scanner) share the same I/O interface (port), the
situation of simultaneous access of different user applications to the same port is possible. To avoid possible conflicts, only one of
them at a time is allowed to gain control over the device. The other user will encounter “device busy” response. You should open
ports configuration and select the port assigned to your machine. In the Selected port pane you can see if the port is occupied
by some other application. If this is the case, you should either wait for completion of the current job or press the Release port
button, if you are sure that the present application is not functioning properly.
• Check if your application has special print option such as “-oraw”. If “-oraw” is specified in the command line parameter, then
remove it to print properly. For Gimp front-end, select “print” -> “Setup printer” and edit command line parameter in the
command item.
• The CUPS (Common UNIXPrinting System) version distributed with SuSE Linux 9.2 (cups-1.1.21) has a problem with ipp (Internet
Printing Protocol) printing.Use the socket printing instead of ipp or install a later version of CUPS (cups-1.1.22 or higher).
Some color images come out all
black.
This is a known bug in Ghostscript (until GNU Ghostscript version 7.05) when the base color space of the document is indexed color
space and it is converted through CIE color space. Because Postscript uses CIE color space for Color Matching System, you should
upgrade Ghostscript on your system to at least GNU Ghostscript version 7.06 or later. You can find recent Ghostscript versions at
www.ghostscript.com.

Condition
Suggested solutions
Some color images come out in
unexpected color.
This is a known bug in Ghostscript (until GNU Ghostscript version 7.xx) when the base color space of the document is indexed RGB
color space and it is converted through CIE color space. Because Postscript uses CIE color space for Color Matching System, you
should upgrade Ghostscript on your system to at least GNU Ghostscript version 8.xx or later. You can find recent Ghostscript versions
at www.ghostscript.com.
The machine does not print
whole pages, and output is
printed on half the page.
It is a known problem that occurs when a color machine is used on version 8.51 or earlier of Ghostscript, 64-bit Linux OS, and has been
reported to bugs.ghostscript.com as Ghostscript Bug 688252.The problem is solved in AFPL Ghostscript v. 8.52 or above. Download
the latest version of AFPL Ghostscript from http://sourceforge.net/projects/ghostscript/ and install it to solve this problem.
“Cannot open port device file”
error message appears when
printing a document.
Avoid changing print job parameters (via LPR GUI, for example) while a print job is in progress. Known versions of CUPS server break
the print job whenever print options are changed and then try to restart the job from the beginning. Since Unified Linux Driver locks
the mfp port while printing, the abrupt termination of the driver keeps the port locked and unavailable for subsequent print jobs. If
this situation occurs, try to release the mfp port by selecting Release port in Port configuration window.

Glossary
ADF
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.
An Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is a scanning unit that will automatically
feed an original sheet of paper so that the machine can scan some amount of the
paper at once.
AppleTalk
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.
Access point

BOOTP
Coverage
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.
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.
