Do not place or use this product near water or wet locations.

CAUTION—POTENTIAL INJURY: This product uses a laser. Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those specified herein may result in hazardous radiation exposure.

This product uses a printing process that heats the print media, and the heat may cause the media to release emissions.

You must understand the section in your operating instructions that discusses the guidelines for selecting print media to avoid the possibility of harmful emissions.

Use care when you replace a lithium battery.

CAUTION—POTENTIAL INJURY: There is a danger of explosion if a lithium battery is incorrectly replaced.

Replace it only with the same or an equivalent type of lithium battery. Do not recharge, disassemble, or incinerate a lithium battery. Discard used batteries according to the manufacturer's instructions and local regulations.

CAUTION—HOT SURFACE: The fuser and the inside of the printer near the fuser may be hot. To reduce the risk of injury from a hot component, allow the surface to cool before removing paper from this area.

CAUTION—POTENTIAL INJURY: The printer weight is greater than 18 kg (40 lb) and requires two or more trained personnel to lift it safely.

CAUTION—SHOCK HAZARD: If you are accessing the system board or installing optional hardware or memory devices sometime after setting up the printer, then turn the printer off, and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet before continuing. If you have any other devices attached to the printer, then turn them off as well, and unplug any cables going into the printer.

This product is designed, tested, and approved to meet strict global safety standards with the use of specific manufacturer's components. The safety features of some parts may not always be obvious. The manufacturer is not responsible for the use of other replacement parts.

CAUTION—POTENTIAL INJURY: Do not cut, twist, bind, crush, or place heavy objects on the power cord. Do not subject the power cord to abrasion or stress. Do not pinch the power cord between objects such as furniture and walls. If any of these things happen, a risk of fire or electrical shock results. Inspect the power cord regularly for signs of such problems. Remove the power cord from the electrical outlet before inspecting it.

Minimizing your printer's environmental impact 39

Minimizing your printer's environmental impact

Lexmark is committed to environmental sustainability and is continually improving its printers to reduce their impact on the environment. We design with the environment in mind, engineer our packaging to reduce materials, and provide collection and recycling programs. For more information, see:

The Notices chapter

The Environmental Sustainability section of the Lexmark Web site at www.lexmark.com/environment

The Lexmark recycling program at www.lexmark.com/recycle

By selecting certain printer settings or tasks, you may be able to reduce your printer's impact even further. This chapter outlines the settings and tasks that may yield a greater environmental benefit.

Saving paper and toner

Studies show that as much as 80% of the carbon footprint of a printer is related to paper usage. You can significantly reduce your carbon footprint by using recycled paper and the following printing suggestions, such as printing on both sides of the paper and printing multiple pages on one side of a single sheet of paper.

For information on how you can quickly save paper and energy using one printer setting, see "Using Eco-Mode".

Using recycled paper

As an environmentally conscious company, Lexmark supports the use of recycled office paper produced specifically for

use in laser printers. For more information on recycled papers that work well with your printer, see “Using recycled paper and other office papers” on page 59.

Conserving supplies

There are a number of ways you can reduce the amount of paper and toner you use when printing. You can:

Use both sides of the paper

If your printer model supports duplex printing, then you can control whether print appears on one or two sides of the paper by selecting 2

sided printing from the Print dialog or the Lexmark Toolbar.

Place multiple pages on one sheet of paper

You can print up to 16 consecutive pages of a multiple

‑page document onto one side of a single sheet of paper by selecting a setting from the Multipage printing (N

‑Up) section of the Print dialog screen.

Check your first draft for accuracy

Before printing or making multiple copies of a document:

Use the preview feature, which you can select from the Print dialog or the Lexmark Toolbar, to see what the document will look like before you print it.

Print one copy of the document to check its content and format for accuracy.

Loading paper and specialty media 54

5

Slide the paper gently into the multipurpose feeder until it comes to a stop. Paper should lie flat in the multipurpose feeder. Make sure the paper fits loosely in the multipurpose feeder and is not bent or wrinkled.

6

From the printer control panel, set the Paper Size and Paper Type.

Linking and unlinking trays

In addition to linking trays to each other, you can also link the multipurpose feeder to the trays.

Linking trays

Tray linking is useful for large print jobs or multiple copies. When one linked tray is empty, paper feeds from the next linked tray. When the Size and Type settings are the same for any trays, the trays are automatically linked. The Size and

Type settings for all trays must be set from the Paper menu.

Unlinking trays

Unlinked trays have settings that are not the same as the settings of any other tray. To unlink a tray using the Paper menu, change the Paper Type and Paper Size settings so that they do not match the settings of any other tray.

1

From the Paper menu, make sure the Type setting (for example, Plain Paper, letterhead, Custom Type <x>) for the tray you want to unlink does not match the Type setting of any other tray.

If the name that best describes your paper is used by linked trays, assign a different Paper Type name to the tray, such as Custom Type <x>, or assign your own custom name.

2

Make sure the Size setting (for example, letter, A4, statement) for the tray you want to unlink does not match the

Size setting of any other tray.

Note: Paper Size settings are not automatic; they must be set manually from the Paper menu.

Warning—Potential Damage: Do not assign a Paper Type name that does not accurately describe the type of paper loaded in the tray. The temperature of the fuser varies according to the specified Paper Type. Paper may not be properly processed if an inaccurate Paper Type is selected.

Paper and specialty media guidelines 57

Paper and specialty media guidelines

Paper and specialty media are paper, card stock, envelopes, paper labels, and transparencies. A number of items must be considered concerning the selection of paper and specialty media before printing. This chapter provides information on making selections and caring for papers and specialty media.

It is recommended that you try a limited sample of any paper or specialty media you are considering using with the printer before purchasing large quantities.

For more information about types of paper and specialty media your printer supports, see the Card Stock & Label

Guide available on the Lexmark Web site at www.lexmark.com.

Paper guidelines

Selecting the correct paper or specialty media reduces printing problems. For the best print quality, try a sample of the paper or specialty media before buying large quantities.

Paper characteristics

The following paper characteristics affect print quality and reliability. Consider these characteristics when evaluating new paper stock.

Weight

The printer trays can automatically feed paper weights up to 90 g/m

2

(24 lb bond) grain long paper. The multipurpose feeder can automatically feed paper weights up to 163 g/m

2

(43 lb bond) grain long. Paper lighter than 60 g/m

2

(16 lb) might not be stiff enough to feed properly, causing jams. For best performance, use 75 g/m

2

(20 lb bond) grain long paper. For paper smaller than 182 x 257 mm (7.2 x 10.1 in.), we recommend 90 g/m

2

(24 lb) or heavier paper.

Note: Duplex printing is supported only for 60–90 g/m

2

(16–24 lb bond) paper.

Curl

Curl is the tendency for paper to curl at its edges. Excessive curl can cause paper feeding problems. Curl can occur after the paper passes through the printer, where it is exposed to high temperatures. Storing paper unwrapped in hot, humid, cold, or dry conditions, even in the trays, can contribute to paper curling prior to printing and can cause feeding problems.

Smoothness

Paper smoothness directly affects print quality. If paper is too rough, toner cannot fuse to it properly. If paper is too smooth, it can cause paper feeding or print quality issues. Always use paper between 100–300 Sheffield points; smoothness between 150–250 Sheffield points produces the best print quality.

Moisture content

The amount of moisture in paper affects both print quality and the ability of the printer to feed the paper correctly.

Leave paper in its original wrapper until it is time to use it. This limits the exposure of paper to moisture changes that can degrade its performance.

Paper and specialty media guidelines 58

Condition paper before printing by storing it in its original wrapper in the same environment as the printer for 24 to

48 hours before printing. Extend the time several days if the storage or transportation environment is very different from the printer environment. Thick paper may also require a longer conditioning period.

Grain direction

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

For 60–90 g/m

2

(16–24 lb bond) paper, grain long paper is recommended.

Fiber content

Most high

‑quality xerographic paper is made from 100% chemically treated 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 can negatively affect paper handling.

Unacceptable paper

The following paper types are not recommended for use with the printer:

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 ±2.3 mm (±0.9 in.), such as optical character recognition (OCR) forms

In some cases, registration can be adjusted with a software application to successfully print on these forms.

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

Rough

‑edged, rough or heavily textured surface papers, or curled papers

Recycled papers that fail EN12281:2002 (European)

Paper weighing less than 60 g/m

2

(16 lb)

Multiple

‑part forms or documents

Selecting paper

Using appropriate paper prevents jams and helps ensure trouble

‑free printing.

To help avoid jams and poor print quality:

Always use new, undamaged paper.

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

Do not use paper, paper labels, or card stock that has been cut or trimmed by hand.

Do not mix sizes, types, or weights in the same source; mixing results in jams.

Do not use coated papers unless they are specifically designed for electrophotographic printing.

Paper and specialty media guidelines 59

Selecting preprinted forms and letterhead

Use these guidelines when selecting preprinted forms and letterhead:

Use grain long for 60–90 g/m

2

(16–24 lb) paper.

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

Avoid papers with rough or heavily textured surfaces.

Use papers printed with heat

‑resistant inks designed for use in xerographic copiers. The ink must be able to withstand temperatures up to 230°C (446°F) without melting or releasing hazardous emissions. Use inks that are not affected by the resin in toner. Inks that are oxidation

‑set or oil‑based generally meet these requirements; latex inks might not.

When in doubt, contact the paper supplier.

Preprinted papers such as letterhead must be able to withstand temperatures up to 230°C (446°F) without melting or releasing hazardous emissions.

Using recycled paper and other office papers

As an environmentally conscious company, Lexmark supports the use of recycled office paper produced specifically for use in laser (electrophotographic) printers. In 1998, Lexmark presented to the US government a study demonstrating that recycled paper produced by major mills in the US fed as well as non-recycled paper. However, no blanket statement can be made that all recycled paper will feed well.

Lexmark consistently tests its printers with recycled paper (20–100% post-consumer waste) and a variety of test paper from around the world, using chamber tests for different temperature and humidity conditions. Lexmark has found no reason to discourage the use of today's recycled office papers, but generally the following property guidelines apply to recycled paper.

Low moisture content (4–5%)

Suitable smoothness (100–200 Sheffield units, or 140–350 Bendtsen units, European)

Note: Some much smoother papers (such as premium 24 lb laser papers, 50–90 Sheffield units) and much rougher papers (such as premium cotton papers, 200–300 Sheffield units) have been engineered to work very well in laser printers, despite surface texture. Before using these types of paper, consult your paper supplier.

Suitable sheet-to-sheet coefficient of friction (0.4–0.6)

Sufficient bending resistance in the direction of feed

Recycled paper, paper of lower weight (<60 g/m

2

[16 lb bond]) and/or lower caliper (<3.8 mils [0.1 mm]), and paper that is cut grain-short for portrait (or short-edge) fed printers may have lower bending resistance than is required for reliable paper feeding. Before using these types of paper for laser (electrophotographic) printing, consult your paper supplier. Remember that these are general guidelines only and that paper meeting these guidelines may still cause paper feeding problems in any laser printer (for example, if the paper curls excessively under normal printing conditions).

Storing paper

Use these paper storage guidelines to help avoid jams and uneven print quality:

For best results, store paper where the temperature is 21°C (70°F) and the relative humidity is 40%. Most label manufacturers recommend printing in a temperature range of 18 to 24°C (65 to 75°F) with relative humidity between

40 and 60%.

Store paper in cartons when possible, on a pallet or shelf, rather than on the floor.

Paper and specialty media guidelines 60

Store individual packages on a flat surface.

Do not store anything on top of individual paper packages.

Supported paper sizes, types, weights, and capacities

The following tables provide information on standard and optional paper sources, the types of paper they support, and capacities.

Note: For an unlisted paper size, select the closest larger listed size.

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

Printing 65

Tips on using transparencies

Print samples on the transparencies being considered for use before buying large quantities.

When printing on transparencies:

Feed transparencies from the standard 250

‑sheet tray or the multipurpose feeder.

Use transparencies designed specifically for laser printers. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to ensure transparencies are able to withstand temperatures up to 175°C (350°F) without melting, discoloring, offsetting, or releasing hazardous emissions.

Note: Transparencies can be printed at a temperature up to 180°C (356°F) if Transparency Weight is set to

Heavy and Transparency Texture is set to Rough. Select these settings using the Embedded Web Server, or from the printer control panel Paper menu.

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

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

We recommend Lexmark part number 70X7240 for letter

‑size transparencies and Lexmark part number 12A5010 for A4

‑size transparencies.

Tips on using envelopes

Print samples on the envelopes being considered for use before buying large quantities.

When printing on envelopes:

Use envelopes designed specifically for laser printers. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to ensure the envelopes can withstand temperatures up to 210°C (410°F) without sealing, wrinkling, curling excessively, or releasing hazardous emissions.

Note: Envelopes can be printed at a temperature up to 220°C (428°F) if Envelope Weight is set to Heavy and

Envelope Texture is set to Rough. Select these settings using the Embedded Web Server, or from the printer control panel Paper menu.

For the best performance, use envelopes made from 90 g/m

2

(24 lb bond) paper. Use up to 105 g/m

2

(28 lb bond) weight for envelopes as long as the cotton content is 25% or less. All

‑cotton envelopes must not exceed 90 g/m

2

(24 lb bond) weight.

Use only new envelopes.

To optimize performance and minimize jams, do not use envelopes that:

Have excessive curl or twist

Are stuck together or damaged in any way

Have windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, or embossing

Have metal clasps, string ties, or 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 bent corners

Have rough, cockle, or laid finishes

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

Note: A combination of high humidity (over 60%) and the high printing temperature may wrinkle or seal envelopes.

Printing 66

Tips on using labels

Print samples on the labels being considered for use before buying large quantities.

Note: Use only paper label sheets. Vinyl, pharmacy, and dual

‑sided labels are not supported.

For detailed information on label printing, characteristics, and design, see the Card Stock & Label Guide available on the Lexmark Web site at http://support.lexmark.com.

When printing on labels:

Use labels designed specifically for laser printers. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to verify that:

The labels can withstand temperatures up to 210°C (410°F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.

Note: Labels can be printed at a higher fusing temperature up to 220°C (428°F) if Label Weight is set to

Heavy. Select this setting using the Embedded Web Server, or from the printer control panel Paper menu.

Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats can withstand up to 25

‑psi (172‑kPa) pressure without delaminating, oozing around the edges, or releasing hazardous fumes.

Do not use labels with slick backing material.

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

Do not use labels with exposed adhesive.

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

‑cuts of the label.

Be sure adhesive backing does not reach to the sheet edge. Zone coating of the adhesive at least 1 mm (0.04 in.) away from edges is recommended. Adhesive material contaminates the printer and could void the warranty.

If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, remove a 2

‑mm (0.06‑in.) strip on the leading and driver edge, and use a non

‑oozing adhesive.

Portrait orientation works best, especially when printing bar codes.

Tips on using card stock

Card stock is heavy, single

‑ply specialty media. Many of its variable characteristics, such as moisture content, thickness, and texture, can significantly impact print quality. Print samples on the card stock being considered for use before buying large quantities.

When printing on card stock:

Make sure the Paper Type is Card Stock.

Select the appropriate Paper Texture setting.

Be aware that preprinting, perforation, and creasing may significantly affect the print quality and cause jams or other paper handling problems.

Check with the manufacturer or vendor to ensure the card stock can withstand temperatures up to 210°C (410°F) without releasing hazardous emissions.

Do not use preprinted card stock manufactured with chemicals that may contaminate the printer. Preprinting introduces semi

‑liquid and volatile components into the printer.

Use grain short card stock when possible.

Printing confidential and other held jobs

Holding jobs in the printer

When sending a job to the printer, you can specify that you want the printer to hold the job in memory until you start the job from the printer control panel. All print jobs that can be initiated by the user at the printer are called held jobs.

Note: Confidential, Verify, Reserve, and Repeat print jobs may be deleted if the printer requires extra memory to process additional held jobs.

Job type

Confidential

Verify

Reserve

Repeat

Description

When you send a Confidential print job to the printer, you must create a PIN from the computer. The PIN must be four digits using the numbers 0–9. The job is held in printer memory until you enter the PIN from the printer control panel and choose to print or delete the job.

When you send a Verify print job, the printer prints one copy and holds the remaining copies in printer memory. Verify lets you examine the first copy to see if it is satisfactory before printing the remaining copies. Once all copies are printed, the job is automatically deleted from printer memory.

When you send a Reserve print job, the printer does not print the job immediately.

It stores the job in memory so you can print the job later. The job is held in memory until you delete it from the Held Jobs menu.

When you send a Repeat print job, the printer prints all requested copies of the job and stores the job in memory so you can print additional copies later. You can print additional copies as long as the job remains stored in memory.

Other types of held jobs include:

Profiles from various sources including Lexmark

TM

Document Solutions Suite (LDSS)

Forms from a kiosk

Bookmarks

Jobs not printed, which are called parked jobs

Printing confidential and other held jobs

Note: Confidential and Verify print jobs are automatically deleted from memory after they print. Repeat and Reserve jobs continue to be held in the printer until you choose to delete them.

Clearing jams 123

Clearing jams

By carefully selecting paper and specialty media and loading it properly, you should be able to avoid most jams. For

more information, see “Avoiding jams” on page 123. If jams do occur, follow the steps outlined in this chapter.

Warning—Potential Damage: Never use any tool to remove a jam. Doing so could permanently damage the fuser.

To resolve jam messages, you must clear the entire paper path, and then press to clear the message and resume printing. The printer prints a new copy of the page that jammed if Jam Recovery is set to On or Auto; however, the

Auto setting does not guarantee the page will print.

Note: Auto is the Jam recovery factory default setting. The printer reprints jammed pages unless the memory required to hold the pages is needed for other printer tasks.

Avoiding jams

The following hints can help you avoid jams:

Use only recommended paper or specialty media. For more information, see “Supported paper sizes, types, weights, and capacities” on page 60.

Do not load too much paper. Make sure the stack height does not exceed the indicated maximum height.

Do not load wrinkled, creased, damp, bent, or curled paper.

Flex, fan, and straighten paper before loading it.

Do not use paper that has been cut or trimmed by hand.

Do not mix paper sizes, weights, or types in the same stack.

Do not feed envelopes that:

Have excessive curl or twist

Have windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, or embossing

Have metal clasps, string ties, or 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 bent corners

Have rough, cockle, or laid finishes

Are stuck together or damaged in any way

Store the paper in an appropriate environment.

Do not remove trays while the printer is printing.

Do not load the multipurpose feeder while the printer is printing. Load the multipurpose feeder prior to printing, or wait for a prompt to load it.

Push all trays in firmly after loading paper.

Make sure the guides in the trays are properly positioned and are not pressing too tightly against the paper.

Make sure all sizes and types are set correctly in the printer control panel menu.

Make sure all printer cables are attached correctly. For more information, see the setup documentation.

Clearing jams 124

Identifying jams in the paper path

The following illustration shows the path that paper travels through the printer. The path varies depending on the input source (tray or feeder) and depending on whether a duplex (two

‑sided) print job is being sent.

When a jam occurs, a jam message appears, indicating the region of the jam or the number of jammed sheets. The three

‑digit jam prefix numbers are given in the following illustration to show where each jam occurs.

The power consumption levels listed in the previous table represent time-averaged measurements. Instantaneous power draws may be substantially higher than the average.

Values are subject to change. See www.lexmark.com for current values.

Power Saver

This product is designed with an energy-saving mode called Power Saver. The Power Saver Mode is equivalent to the

Sleep Mode. The Power Saver Mode saves energy by lowering power consumption during extended periods of inactivity.

The Power Saver Mode is automatically engaged after this product is not used for a specified period of time, called the

Power Saver Timeout.

Factory default Power Saver Timeout for this product (in minutes): 30

By using the configuration menus, the Power Saver Timeout can be modified between 1 minute and 240 minutes.

Setting the Power Saver Timeout to a low value reduces energy consumption, but may increase the response time of the product. Setting the Power Saver Timeout to a high value maintains a fast response, but uses more energy.

Off mode

If this product has an off mode which still consumes a small amount of power, then to completely stop product power consumption, disconnect the power supply cord from the wall outlet.

Total energy usage

It is sometimes helpful to calculate the total product energy usage. Since power consumption claims are provided in power units of Watts, the power consumption should be multiplied by the time the product spends in each mode in order to calculate energy usage. The total product energy usage is the sum of each mode's energy usage.

Limitation of liability

Your sole remedy under this limited warranty is set forth in this document. For any claim concerning performance or nonperformance of Lexmark or a Remarketer for this product under this limited warranty, you may recover actual damages up to the limit set forth in the following paragraph.

Notices 173

Lexmark's liability for actual damages from any cause whatsoever will be limited to the amount you paid for the product that caused the damages. This limitation of liability will not apply to claims by you for bodily injury or damage to real property or tangible personal property for which Lexmark is legally liable. IN NO EVENT WILL LEXMARK BE LIABLE FOR

ANY LOST PROFITS, LOST SAVINGS, INCIDENTAL DAMAGE, OR OTHER ECONOMIC OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.

This is true even if you advise Lexmark or a Remarketer of the possibility of such damages. Lexmark is not liable for any claim by you based on a third party claim.

This limitation of remedies also applies to claims against any Suppliers and Remarketers of Lexmark. Lexmark's and its

Suppliers' and Remarketers' limitations of remedies are not cumulative. Such Suppliers and Remarketers are intended beneficiaries of this limitation.

Additional rights

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the limitations or exclusions contained above may not apply to you.

This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may also have other rights that vary from state to state.
