Guidelines for Paper and Specialty Media

When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other specialty 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 multi-part paper.

• When printing transparencies, use only Phaser 35-Series

Premium Transparency Film.

• Do not use paper with irregularities, such as tabs or staples.

• Do not attempt to load any tray while printing and never overfill the tray. This could cause a paper jam.

• Avoid paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or a texture that is too smooth or too rough.

• Colored paper should be of the same high quality as white photocopy paper. The pigments must withstand the printer’s fusing temperature of 180°C (356°F) for 0.1 seconds without deteriorating. Do not use paper with a colored coating that was added after the paper was produced.

• Preprinted forms must be printed with nonflammable, heatresistant ink that does not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous emissions when subject to the printer’s fusing temperature.

• Store paper 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 paper away from moisture, direct sunlight or other conditions that can cause it to wrinkle or curl.

2

N OTE : Do not use carbonless paper and tracing paper. The chemicals can damage your printer.

Loading Paper

Proper paper loading helps prevent paper jams and ensure trouble-free printing. Do not remove the paper tray while a job is printing. Doing so may cause a paper jam. See “Sizes and

Capacities” on page 2.2 for acceptable paper capacities for each tray.

Using Tray 1

Tray 1 can hold a maximum of 250 sheets plain A4 and lettersized paper or 30 transparencies.

You can purchase an optional tray, Tray 2, and attach it below

Tray 1, to load an additional 500 sheets of paper.

1 Pull the tray out of the printer.

2 Push down on the metal plate until it locks into position.

Using the Multi-Purpose Tray (MPT)

The Multi-purpose Tray (MPT) is located on the right side of your printer. It can be closed when you are not using it, making the printer more compact.

2

Multi-purpose Tray (MPT)

The Multi-purpose Tray can hold several sizes and types of paper, such as transparencies, cards and envelopes. You may also want to use the Multi-purpose Tray for single page print jobs on letterhead, colored paper for use as separator sheets, or other specialty media that you do not normally keep in the paper tray. You can load approximately 100 sheets of plain paper, 10 envelopes, 30 transparencies, 10 sheets of card stock or 10 labels at a time.

• Load only one size of paper at a time in the

Multi-purpose Tray.

• To prevent paper jams, do not add paper when there is still paper in the Multi-purpose Tray. This also applies to other types of specialty media.

• Paper should be loaded face down with the top edge going into the Multi-purpose Tray first and be placed in the center of the tray.

To load paper in the Multi-purpose Tray:

1 Lower the Multi-purpose Tray and unfold the paper support extension as shown.

• Never print on any sheet where labels are missing.

• Do not use labels that are curled, wrinkled, or damaged.

• To prevent labels from sticking together, do not let the printed label sheets stack up as they are printed out.

To print on labels:

1 Open the Multi-purpose Tray and unfold the paper support.

2 Load labels only in the Multi-purpose Tray with the print side down and the top, short edge in first. Adjust the guide to fit the width of the labels.

• Ensure that transparencies do not have torn edges and are not wrinkled or curled.

• Hold the transparencies by the edges and avoid touching the print side. Oils from your fingers can cause print quality problems.

• Be careful not to leave fingerprints on or scratch the print side.

C AUTION : To avoid damaging the printer, use only transparencies recommended for laser printers using oil-less fusers. Do not use transparencies with paper backing or paper tape. Use only Phaser

35-Series Premium Transparency Film.

N OTES :

• Transparencies print only in black and white.

• Before printing on transparencies, make sure that the output support is laid down.

Printing on Preprinted Paper

• Preprinted paper is paper that has some type of printing placed on it before it is sent through the printer (paper that has a preprinted logo at the top of the page, for example).

• 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 of 180°C

(356°F) for 0.1 seconds.

• Ink on letterhead must be non-flammable, non-metallic, and should not adversely affect any printer rollers.

• Forms and letterhead should be sealed in 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 of preprinted paper, reducing the print quality.

To print on preprinted paper:

1 Open the Multi-purpose Tray and unfold the paper support.

2 Load letterhead only in the Multi-purpose Tray with the print side down and the top , short edge , in first .

Adjust the guide to fit the width of the paper stack.

Printing on Card Stock or Custom Size

Paper

• Print index cards (3.5 in. x 5.5 in.), postcards, and custom size paper with the Phaser 6100 printer. The minimum size is

90mm by 140mm (3.5in. by 5.5in.) and the maximum size is

216mm by 356mm (8.5in. by 14in.).

• Always insert the short edge into the Multi-purpose Tray first.

If you want to print in landscape mode, make this selection using your software. Do not insert paper with the long edge entering the printer first as it may cause the paper to jam.

• Do not load more than 10 cards into the Multi-purpose Tray at a time.

• Do not print on paper smaller than 90mm (3.5in.) wide or

140mm (5.5in.) long.

• Set margins at least 4.3mm away from the edges of the paper in the software application.

Using Overlays

What is an Overlay?

An overlay is text and/or images stored on 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 need only tell the printer to print the letterhead overlay on your document.

Creating a New Page Overlay

To use a page overlay, you must create a new page overlay containing your logo or image.

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 When you change the print settings from your software application, access the printer Properties. See page 3.3.

Managing the Toner Cartridges

Toner Cartridge Storage

To get the maximum results from the toner cartridge, keep the following guidelines in mind:

• Do not remove the toner cartridges from their packages until you are ready to use them.

• Do not refill the toner cartridges. The printer warranty does not cover damage caused by using a refilled cartridge.

• Store the toner cartridges in the same environment as the printer.

• To prevent damage to the toner cartridges, do not expose them to light for more than a few minutes.

Toner Cartridge Life Expectancy

The life of the toner cartridge depends on the amount of toner that your print jobs require. When printing text at 5% coverage, a high-capacity toner cartridge lasts an average of 7,000 pages for black and 5,000 pages for each color. The standard-capacity toner cartridge supplied with the printer lasts an average of

3,000 pages for black and 2,000 pages for each color.

At any time, you can verify the life expectancy by checking the toner level. See the below.

Checking the Remaining Toner

You can check the level of toner left in each cartridge.

1 In ready mode press the Menu button ( ) on the control panel until you see ‘Maintenance’ on the bottom line of the display.

2 Press the OK button ( ) to access the menu.

3 When ‘Check Toner’ displays on the bottom line, press the

OK button ( ).

4 Press the scroll button ( or ) until the color of the toner cartridge you want to check displays on the bottom line.

5 Press the OK button ( ).

The display shows the percentage of the remaining toner.

Redistributing the Toner

When a toner cartridge is nearly empty, faded or light areas may appear. Equally it is possible that colored images may have incorrect colors due to incorrect mixing of the toner colors when one of the colored toner cartridge is nearly empty. 'Ready

[Color] Low Toner' appears on the display. The printer can continue to print using the current toner cartridge until the control panel displays a message telling you to replace the cartridge.

You may be able to temporarily improve the print quality by redistributing the toner. The control panel display tells you which color cartridge is low in toner.
