Printing Quality Problems

The inside of the printer may be dirty or improper paper loading may reduce the 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:

Toner specks l l l l l

  The toner supply is low. You may be able to temporarily extend the toner cartridge life. See Redistributing Toner . If this does not improve the print quality, install a new toner cartridge.

  The paper may not meet paper specifications; for example, the paper is too moist or too rough. See Recommended Paper .

  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 Graphics Tab .

  A combination of faded or smeared defects may indicate that the toner cartridge needs cleaning. See Cleaning the Interior .

  The surface of the LSU part inside the printer may be dirty. Clean the LSU (see Cleaning the Interior ). l l l

  The paper may not meet specifications; for example, the paper is too moist or too rough. See Recommended Paper .

  The transfer roller may be dirty. Clean the inside of your printer. See Cleaning the Interior .

  The paper path may need cleaning. See Maintaining the Drum Cartridge .

Dropouts If faded areas, generally rounded, occur randomly on the page: l l l l l

  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

Recommended Paper .

  The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing process can cause some areas to reject toner. Try a different kind or brand of paper.

  The toner cartridge may be defective. See Vertical repetitive defects .

  If these steps do not correct the problems, contact a service representative.

Vertical lines l l

  If black vertical streaks appear on the page, the drum inside the toner cartridge has probably been scratched. Install a new toner cartridge. See Replacing the Toner Cartridge .

  If white vertical streaks appear on the page, the surface of the LSU part inside the printer may be dirty. Clean the LSU (see

Cleaning the Interior ).

Gray background If the amount of background shading becomes unacceptable: l l l

  Change to lighter weight pages. See Recommended Paper .

  Check the printer's environment; very dry (low humidity) or high humidity (higher than 80% RH) conditions can increase the amount of background shading.

  Remove the old toner cartridge and install a new one. See Replacing the Toner Cartridge .

Toner smear l l l

  Clean the inside of the printer. See Cleaning the Interior .

  Check the paper type and quality. See Recommended Paper .

  Remove the toner cartridge and install a new one. See Replacing the Toner Cartridge .

Vertical repetitive defects

If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of the page at even intervals: l l l

  The toner cartridge may be damaged. If a repetitive mark occurs on the page, print a cleaning sheet several times to clean the cartridge; see Maintaining the Drum Cartridge . After the printout, if you still have the same problems, install a new toner cartridge. See Replacing the Toner Cartridge .

  Parts of the printer 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 Background scatter results from bits of toner distributed on the printed page. l l l

  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.

  If background scatter covers the entire surface area of a printed page, adjust the print resolution through your software application or the printer properties.

Misformed characters l l

  If characters are improperly formed and produce hollow images, the paper stock may be too slick. Try a different paper. See

Recommended Paper .

  If characters are improperly formed and produce a wavy effect, the scanner unit may need service. For service, contact a service representative.

Page skew l   Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.

l l

  Check the paper type and quality. See Recommended Paper .

  Ensure that the paper or other material is loaded correctly and the guides are not too tight or too loose against the paper stack.

Curl or wave l l l l

  Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.

  Check the paper type and quality. Both high temperatures and humidity can cause paper curl. See Recommended Paper .

 Turn over the stack of paper in the paper tray. Also try rotating the paper 180° in the paper tray.

  If the problem persists, the printer may require repair. Contact a service representative.

Character voids Character voids have white areas where they should be solid black: l l l

  If you are using transparencies, try another type of transparency. Because of the composition of the transparency, some character voids are normal.

  You may be printing on the wrong surface of the paper. Turn over the stack of paper in the paper tray.

  The paper may not meet paper specifications. See Recommended Paper .

Horizontal stripes If horizontally aligned black streaks or smears appear: l l l

  The toner cartridge may be installed improperly. Remove the toner cartridge and reinsert.

Print Media Guidelines

Print media refers to paper, card stock, transparencies, labels, and envelopes. Your printer provides high quality printing on a variety of print media. Selecting the appropriate print media for your printer helps you avoid printing problems.

 

Paper

For the best print quality, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb) xerographic, long grain paper. Try a sample of any paper you are considering using with the printer before buying large quantities.

When loading paper, note the recommended print side on the paper package, and load paper accordingly. See Loading Print Media in the Paper Tray and

Using the Bypass Tray for detailed loading instructions.

 

Paper Characteristics

The following paper characteristics affect print quality and reliability. Use the following guidelines when evaluating new paper stock.

 

NOTE: Please follow the instructions on the paper packaging for a preferred printing side. Printing on the wrong side may cause some paper misalignment on the paper output tray.

Weight

The printer automatically feeds paper weights from 60 to 105 g/m2 (16 to 28 lb bond) grain long in the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) and from 60 to 90 g/m2 (16 to 24 lb bond) grain long in the paper tray. Paper lighter than 60 g/m2 (16 lb) may not be stiff enough to feed properly, causing jams. For best performance, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb bond) long grain paper.

For duplex printing, use 75 to 90 g/m2 (20 to 24 lb bond) paper.

 

Curl

Curl is the tendency of print media to curve at its edges. Excessive curl can cause paper feeding problems. Curl usually occurs after the paper passes through the printer, where it is exposed to high temperatures. Storing paper unwrapped in humid conditions, even in the paper tray, can contribute to paper curling prior to printing and can cause feeding problems.

 

Smoothness

The degree of smoothness of paper directly affects print quality. If the paper is too rough, the toner does not fuse to the paper properly, resulting in poor print quality. If the paper is too smooth, it can cause paper feeding problems. Smoothness between 100 and 300 Sheffield points is recommended; however, smoothness between 150 and 250 Sheffield points produces the best print quality.

 

Moisture Content

The amount of moisture in the paper affects both print quality and the ability of the printer to feed the paper properly. Leave the paper in its original wrapper until you are ready to use it. This limits the exposure of the paper to moisture changes that can degrade its performance.

 

Grain Direction

Grain refers to the alignment of the paper fibers in a sheet of paper. Grain is either long grain, running the length of the paper, or short grain, running the width of the paper.

For 60 to 90 g/m2 (16 to 24 lb bond) paper, grain long fibers are recommended. For papers heavier than 90 g/m2 (24 lb bond), grain short is preferred. For the bypass tray, 60 to 90 g/m2 (16 to 24 lb bond) paper, grain long fibers are recommended.

 

Fiber Content

Most high-quality xerographic paper is made from 100% chemically pulped wood. This content provides the paper with a high degree of stability resulting in fewer paper feeding problems and better print quality. Paper containing fibers such as cotton possess characteristics that can result in degraded paper handling.

 

Recommended Paper

To ensure the best print quality and feed reliability, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb) xerographic paper. Business papers designed for general business use may also provide acceptable print quality.

Always print several samples before buying large quantities of any type of print media. When choosing any print media, consider the weight, fiber content, and color.

Use only paper able to withstand these temperatures without discoloring, bleeding, or releasing hazardous emissions. Check with the paper manufacturer or vendor to determine whether the paper you have chosen is acceptable for laser printers.

 

Unacceptable Paper

The following papers are not recommended for use with the printer: l l l l l l l l l

  Chemically treated papers used to make copies without carbon paper, also known as carbonless papers, carbonless copy paper (CCP), or no carbon required (NCR) paper

  Preprinted papers with chemicals that may contaminate the printer

  Preprinted papers that can be affected by the temperature in the printer fuser

  Preprinted papers that require a registration (the precise print location on the page) greater than 0.09 in., such as optical character recognition

(OCR) forms

  Coated papers (erasable bond), synthetic papers, thermal papers

  Rough-edged, rough or heavily textured surface papers or curled papers

  Recycled papers containing more than 25% post-consumer waste that do not meet DIN 19 309

  Recycled paper having a weight less than 60 g/m2 (16 lb)

  Multiple-part forms or documents

 

Selecting Paper

Proper paper loading helps prevent jams and ensures trouble-free printing.

To help avoid jams or poor print quality:

l l l l l l l l l

  Always use new, undamaged paper

  Before loading paper, know the recommended print side of the paper you are using. This information is usually indicated on the paper package

  Do not use paper that you have cut or trimmed yourself

  Do not mix print media sizes, weights, or types in the same source; mixing may result in jams

  Do not use coated papers

  Remember to change the paper size setting when you use a source that does not support auto size sensing

  Do not remove trays while a job is printing or Busy is displayed on the operator panel

  Ensure that the paper is properly loaded in the source

  Flex paper back and forth. Do not fold or crease the paper. Straighten the edges on a level surface.

 

Selecting Preprinted Forms and Letterhead

Use the following guidelines when selecting preprinted forms and letterhead paper for the printer: l l l l

  Use long grain papers for best results.

  Use only forms and letterhead printed using an offset lithographic or engraved printing process.

  Choose papers that absorb ink, but do not bleed.

  Avoid papers with rough or heavily textured surfaces.

Use papers printed with heatresistant inks designed for use in xerographic copiers. The ink must withstand temperatures of 180°C (356°F) without melting or  releasing hazardous emissions. Use inks that are not affected by the resin in toner or the silicone in the fuser. Inks that are oxidation-set or oil-based must meet these requirements; some latex inks are not appropriate. If you are in doubt, contact your paper supplier.

Preprinted papers such as letterhead must be able to withstand temperatures up to 180C (356F) without melting or releasing hazardous emissions.

 

Printing on Letterhead

Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine whether the preprinted letterhead you have chosen is acceptable for laser printers.

Page orientation is important when printing on letterhead. Use the following table for help when loading letterhead in the print media sources.

Selecting Prepunched Paper

Prepunched paper brands differ in the number and placement of holes and in manufacturing techniques.

Use the following guidelines to select and use prepunched paper: l l l

  Test paper from several manufacturers before ordering and using large quantities of pre-punched paper.

  Select paper punched at the paper manufacturer and not drilled into paper already packaged in a ream. Drilled paper can cause jams when multiple sheets feed through the printer.

  Prepunched paper can include more paper dust than standard paper. Your printer may require more frequent cleaning and feed reliability may not be as good as that of standard paper.

 

Transparencies

Try a sample of any transparencies you are considering using with the printer before buying large quantities: l l l l

 Use transparencies designed specifically for laser printers. Transparencies must be able to withstand temperatures of 180°C (356°F) without  melting, discoloring, offsetting, or releasing hazardous emissions.

  To avoid print quality problems, avoid getting fingerprints on the transparencies.

  Before loading transparencies, fan the stack to prevent sheets from sticking together.

  Load one transparency at a time in the bypass tray.

 

Selecting Transparencies

The printer is designed to print directly on transparencies manufactured for use in laser printers. Print quality and durability depend on the transparency used.

Always print samples on the transparencies you are considering before buying large quantities.

Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine whether your transparencies are compatible with laser printers that heat transparencies to 180°C (356°

F). Use only transparencies that are able to withstand these temperatures without melting, discoloring, offsetting, or releasing hazardous emissions.

NOTE: Dell recommends using 3M transparencies for the Dell MFP 1125.

 

Envelopes

Load one envelope at a time in the bypass tray. Try a sample of any envelopes you are considering using with the printer before buying large quantities. See

Using the Bypass Tray for instructions on loading an envelope.

When printing on envelopes: l l l l l l l

  To achieve the best possible print quality, use only high-quality envelopes that are designed for use in laser printers.

  For best performance, use envelopes made from 75 g/m2 (20 lb bond) paper. You can use up to 90 g/m2 (24 lb bond) weight for the bypass tray as long as the cotton content is 25 percent or less.

  Use only new, undamaged envelopes.

 Use envelopes that can withstand temperatures of 180°C (356°F) without sealing, curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions. If you  have any doubts about the envelopes you are considering using, check with the envelope supplier.

  Load an envelope with the flap side down and with the stamp area on the top left side. The end of the envelope with the stamp area enters the bypass tray first. See Using the Bypass Tray for instructions on loading envelopes.

  Adjust the width guide to fit the width of the envelopes.

  A combination of high humidity (over 60%) and the high printing temperatures may seal the envelopes.

For best performance and to minimize jams, do not use envelopes that: l l l l l l l l l

  Have excessive curl or twist.

  Are stuck together or damaged in any way.

  Contain windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, or embossing.

  Use metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars.

  Have an interlocking design.

  Have postage stamps attached.

  Have any exposed adhesive when the flap is in the sealed or closed position.

  Have nicked edges or bent corners.

  Have rough, cockle, or laid finishes.

 

Labels

The printer is designed to print on many labels manufactured for use with laser printers. These labels are supplied in letter size, A4 size, and legal size sheets.

Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats must be able to withstand temperatures of 180°C (356°F) and pressure of 25 pounds per square  inch (psi). You should load only one label sheet at a time in the bypass tray.

NOTE: Try a sample of any labels you are considering using with the printer before purchasing a large quantity.

When printing on labels: l l l l l l l l

  Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam. Partial sheets also contaminate your printer and your cartridge with adhesive, and could void your printer and cartridge warranties.

 Use labels that can withstand temperatures of 180°C (356°F) without sealing, curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.

  Do not print within 0.04 in. (1 mm) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die-cuts of the label.

  Do not use label sheets that have adhesive to the edge of the sheet. We recommend zone coating of the adhesive at least 0.04 in. (1 mm) away from edges. Adhesive material contaminates your printer and could void your warranty.

  If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, a 0.125 in. (3 mm) strip must be removed on the leading and driver edge, and a non-oozing adhesive used.

  Remove a 0.125 in. (3 mm) strip from the leading edge to prevent labels from peeling inside the printer.

  Portrait orientation is preferred, especially when printing bar codes.

  Do not use labels that have exposed adhesive.

 

Card Stock

Card stock is single ply, and has a large array of properties, such as the moisture content, thickness, and texture, that can significantly affect print quality. See

Identifying Print Media Sources and Specifications for information on the preferred weight for the grain direction of print media.

NOTE: Try a sample of any card stock you are considering using with the printer before purchasing a large quantity.

When printing on card stock: l l l l

  Be aware that preprinting, perforation, and creasing can significantly affect the print quality and cause print media handling or jamming problems.

  Avoid using card stock that may release hazardous emissions when heated.

  Do not use preprinted card stock manufactured with chemicals that may contaminate the printer. Preprinting introduces semi-liquid and volatile components into the printer.

  We recommend the use of grain long card stock.

 

Storing Print Media

Use the following guidelines for proper print media storage. These help avoid print media feeding problems and uneven print quality: l l l l

 For best results, store print media in an environment where the temperature is approximately 21°C (70°F) and the relative humidity is 40%.

  Store cartons of print media on a pallet or shelf, rather than directly on the floor.

  If you store individual packages of print media out of the original carton, make sure they rest on a flat surface so the edges do not buckle or curl.

  Do not place anything on top of the print media packages.

Loading Print Media in the Paper Tray

  

Using the Bypass Tray

  

Setting the Paper Size

  

Setting the Paper Type

This chapter provides information on how to make print media selections, how to care for the print media, and how to load it in the paper tray or the bypass tray.

 

Loading Print Media in the Paper Tray

You can load approximately 250 sheets of plain paper in the paper tray. For faxing, you can use A4, LTR (letter) or LGL (legal) paper only. For copying or PC printing, you can use many different types and sizes of paper; see Identifying Print Media Sources and Specifications .

Preparation:

 

1.

Remove the paper tray cover from the paper tray.

 

2.

Flex the sheets back and forth to loosen them, and then fan them out. Do not fold or crease the print media. Align the edges on a level surface.

To load standard paper:

 

1.

Insert the paper stack and push in the direction of the arrow.

 

2.

Replace the paper tray cover.

To load longer than standard paper (e.g. Legal):

 

1.

Press the guide lock and slide the paper length guide out completely to extend the paper tray to its full length.

 

2.

Insert the paper stack into the paper tray with the side to be printed on facing down.

 

3.

Do not exceed the maximum stack height indicated by the paper limit marks on the inside of the tray.

NOTE: Overloading the paper tray may cause paper jams.

 

4.

Adjust the paper length guide in the direction of the arrow until it rests lightly against the paper stack.

NOTE: Improper adjustment of paper guides can result in paper jams.

 

5.

Replace the paper tray cover.

 

6.

Set the paper type and size. See

Setting the Paper Type

and

Setting the Paper Size .

To load paper smaller than the standard paper size(e.g. Envelopes):

 

1.

Insert the paper stack into the paper tray with the side to be printed on facing down.

 

2.

Adjust the paper width guide and move it towards the stack of paper until it lightly touches the side of the stack.

NOTE: Improper adjustment of paper guides can result in paper jams.

 

3.

Replace the paper tray cover.

 

4.

Set the paper type and size. See

Setting the Paper Type

and

Setting the Paper Size .

NOTE: Load letterhead paper with the design side face up. The top edge of the sheet with the logo must be placed at the front side of the tray.

NOTE: If you experience problems with paper feed, place the paper in the bypass tray.

NOTE: Previously printed paper is reusable. Place the paper into the tray printed side facing down, with an uncurled edge at the front. If you experience problems with paper feed, turn the paper around. Note that the print quality is not guaranteed.

 

Using the Bypass Tray

The bypass tray is located on top of the paper tray and is used to print transparencies, labels, envelopes or postcards in addition to making quick runs of paper types or sizes that are not currently loaded in the paper tray.

The following tips help to ensure the correct operation of the bypass tray: l l l l

  Load only one size of print media at a time in the bypass tray.

  To prevent paper jams, do not add paper when there is still paper in the bypass tray. This also applies to other types of print media.

  Print media must be loaded face up with the top edge leading into the bypass tray first, and be placed in the center of the tray.

  Always load only the print media specified in Print Media Guidelines to avoid paper jams and print quality problems.

Flatten any curl on postcards, envelopes, and labels before loading them into the bypass tray.

Postcards, 3.5 by 5.83 in. (index) cards, and other custom-sized materials are supported by this printer. The minimum size is 3.0 by 5.0 in. (76 by 127 mm) and the maximum size is 8.5 by 14 in. (216 by 356 mm).

Acceptable print media are plain paper with sizes ranging from 3.0 by 5.0 in. (76 by 127 mm) to Legal, 8.5 by 14 in. (216 by 356 mm), the largest size acceptable, and weighing between 16 lb and 43 lb.

NOTE: Always load only the print media specified in Paper Characteristics to avoid paper jams and print quality problems.

NOTE: Flatten any curl on postcards, envelopes, and labels before loading them into the bypass tray.

To use the bypass tray:

 

1.

Place the print media between the width guides with the side to be printed face up.

NOTE: If you are using paper, flex or fan the edge of the paper stack to separate the pages before loading.

NOTE: Hold transparencies by the edges and avoid touching the print side. Oil from your fingers that is deposited on the transparency can affect print quality.

 

2.

Adjust the width guides to match the width of the print media.

Using excessive force can result in a paper jam or skew.

Depending on the paper type used, see the following loading methods: l

  Envelopes - load them with the flap side down and with the stamp area on the top left side. Please feed the envelope to be printed one at a time when using the bypass tray. For up to 5 envelopes, please use the standard paper tray.

l l l l l l l l

  Transparencies - load them with the print side up and the top with the adhesive strip entering the printer first

  Labels - load labels with the print side up and top short edge entering the printer first

  Preprinted paper - load with the design face up, top edge toward the printer

  Card stock - load them with the print side up and the short edge entering the printer first

  Preprinted paper - the printed side must be face downward with an uncurled edge toward the printer

 

After loading the paper, set the paper type and size. See

Setting the Paper Type

for copying and faxing or Paper Tab for PC-printing.

 

Start the printer operation in the usual manner

 

The printer automatically detects the paper in the bypass tray and prints as normal.

NOTE: The settings made from the printer driver override the settings on the operator panel.

Using Overlays

 

What is an Overlay?

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.

 

Creating a New Page Overlay

To use this feature, you must create a new page overlay containing your logo or image. Perform the following steps to create and use an overlay.

NOTE: The overlay document size must be the same as documents you will print with the overlay. Do not create an overlay with a watermark.

 

1.

Create or open a document containing text or an image for use in a new page overlay. Position the items exactly as you wish them to appear when printed as an overlay. If needed, save the file for later use.

 

2.

From your software application, access the printer properties.

 

3.

From the Overlays tab, select Create New Overlay from the Overlay Function drop down list. Click OK . The Create Overlay dialogue box is displayed.

In the Create Overlay window, type a meaningful name in the Description box. Select the destination path, if necessary. (The default is C:\Documents and

Settings).

 

 

4.

Click OK to return to the Overlays tab. Click OK to complete overlay creation.

NOTE: The file is not printed out; it is stored in your computer.

Using a Page Overlay

After an overlay has been created, it is ready to be printed with your document. To print an overlay with a document:

NOTE: Every time an overlay is required on a document, the Overlay Function box must be changed from No Overlay, the default setting.

NOTE: The resolution of the overlay must be the same as the resolution of the document that will print with the overlay.

 

 

1.

Create or open the document you want to print with an overlay.

 

2.

From your software application, access the printer properties.

 

3.

From the Overlays tab, select the One Overlay from the Overlay Function drop down menu.

 

4.

Select the overlay you want to print from the Overlay Select box.

NOTE: If you have stored the overlay file you want to use on an external source, such as a CD or floppy disk, you can also load the file when you access this Load Overlay window.

NOTE: After you select the file, click Open . The file is now shown in the Overlay List box and is available for printing. Select the overlay from the

Overlay List box.

 

 

5.

Click OK to return to the Print screen. Click OK to start printing the document with the selected overlay.

Deleting a Page Overlay

Overlays that are no longer used should be deleted to minimize the Overlay Select window size. To delete an overlay:

 

1.

From your software application, access the printer properties.

 

2.

From the Overlays tab, select the overlay to be deleted from the Overlay Select window and click the Delete button.

 

3.

The overlay is deleted.

NOTE: There is no confirmation message and the overlay is unrecoverable.

Scanning Overview

Use your Dell™ MFP 1125 to convert pictures and text into editable images on your computer. After you install the software from the  Drivers and Utilities CD, you can start scanning images using either the operator panel or applications such as DELL MFP Center or Adobe PhotoShop on your computer, which enables you to scan a document on your printer as a BMP, JPEG, TIFF, or PDF and save it to a computer. Or, you can send the scanned image as an e-mail attachment directly from the printer.

NOTE: DELL MFP Center is the scanning program provided with your printer.

The resolution setting to use when you scan an item using PaperPort depends on the item type and how you plan to use the image or document after you scan it in to your computer. For the best results, use these recommended settings.

Item Type Resolution

Documents 300 dpi black-and-white or 200 dpi grayscale or color

Documents of poor quality or that contain small text 400 dpi black-and-white or 300 dpi grayscale

Photographs and pictures 100-200 dpi color or 200 dpi grayscale

Images for an inkjet printer 150 dpi to 300 dpi

Images for a high-resolution printer 300 dpi to 600 dpi

Scanning above these recommended resolutions may exceed the capabilities of the application. If you require a resolution above those recommended in the above table, you should reduce the size of the image by previewing (or pre-scan) and cropping before scanning the image.
