Compliance and Conformity
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a
Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits
are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses
and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not
occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct
the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
• The use of a non-shielded interface cable with the referenced device
is prohibited.
CAUTION — The changes or modifications not expressly approved by
the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to
operate the equipment.
This device complies with Part 15 of FCC Rules and RSS-Gen of IC
Rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions; (1) this device may
not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference,
including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.
* The above warning is valid only in the United States of America.
Interface connectors
IMPORTANT Be sure to power off the printer before connecting or
disconnecting an interface cable. For protection against static
electricity discharge to the printer's internal electronics through the
interface connector(s), cover any interface connector that is not in use
with the protective cap supplied.
Note Use shielded interface cables.

Avis de conformité aux normes du ministère des
Communications du Canada
Cet appareil numérique de la classe B est conforme à la norme NMB-003
du Canada.

Energy Saving Control Function
The device comes equipped with a Low Power Mode where energy
consumption is reduced after a certain amount of time elapses since the
device was last used, as well as a Sleep where printer functions remain
in a waiting state but power consumption is still reduced to a minimum
when there is no activity with the device within a set amount of time.
Low Power Mode
The device automatically enters Low Power Mode when 1 minute has
passed since the device was last used. The amount of time of no activity
that must pass before Low Power Mode is activated may be lengthened.
For more information refer to Low Power Timer (Low Power Mode timer
timeout time) on page 4-71.
Sleep
The device automatically enters Sleep when 15 minutes have passed
since the device was last used. The amount of time of no activity that must
pass before Sleep is activated may be lengthened. For more information,
refer to Sleep Timer (Sleep timer timeout time) on page 4-71.
Automatic 2-Sided Print Function
This device includes 2-sided printing as a standard function. For example,
by printing two 1-sided originals onto a single sheet of paper as a 2-sided
print, it is possible to lower the amount of paper used. For more
information refer to Duplex (Duplex printing) on page 4-39.
Printing in duplex mode reduces paper consumption and contributes to
the conservation of forest resources. Duplex mode also reduces the
amount of paper that must be purchased, and thereby reduces cost. It is
recommended that machines capable of duplex printing be set to use
duplex mode by default.
Resource Saving - Paper
For the preservation and sustainable use of forest resources, it is
recommended that recycled as well as virgin paper certified under
environmental stewardship initiatives or carrying recognised ecolabels,
which meet EN 12281:2002*1 or an equivalent quality standard, be used.
This machine also supports printing on 64 g/m² paper. Using such paper
containing less raw materials can lead to further saving of forest
resources.
*1: EN12281:2002 "Printing and business paper - Requirements for copy
paper for dry toner imaging processes"
Your sales or service representative can provide information about
recommended paper types.
Environmental benefits of "Power Management"
To reduce power consumption when idle, this machine is equipped with a
power management function that automatically activates energy-saving
mode when the machine is idle for a certain period of time.

Handling Paper
General Guidelines
The machine is designed to print on standard copier paper (the type used
in ordinary dry copier machines), but it can also accept a variety of other
types of paper within the limits specified below.
Note The manufacturer assumes no liability for problems that
occur when paper not satisfying these requirements is used.
Selection of the right paper is important. Using the wrong paper can result
in paper jams, curling, poor print quality, and paper waste, and in extreme
cases can damage the machine. The guidelines given below will increase
the productivity of your office by ensuring efficient, trouble-free printing
and reducing wear and tear on the machine.
Paper Availability
Most types of paper are compatible with a variety of machines. Paper
intended for xerographic copiers can also be used with the machine.
There are three general grades of paper: economy, standard, and
premium. The most significant difference between grades is the ease with
which they pass through the machine. This is affected by the smoothness,
size, and moisture content of the paper, and the way in which the paper
is cut. The higher the grade of paper you use, the less risk there will be of
paper jams and other problems, and the higher the level of quality your
printed output will reflect.
Differences between paper from different suppliers can also affect the
machine’s performance. A high-quality printer cannot produce highquality results when the wrong paper is used. Low-priced paper is not
economical in the long run if it causes printing problems.
Paper in each grade is available in a range of basis weights (defined
later). The traditional standard weights are 60 to 120 g/m² (16 to 32
pounds).

Selecting the Right Paper
This section describes the guidelines for selecting paper.
Condition
Avoid using paper that is bent at the edges, curled, dirty, torn, embossed,
or contaminated with lint, clay, or paper shreds.
Use of paper in these conditions can lead to illegible printing and paper
jams, and can shorten the life of the machine. In particular, avoid using
paper with a surface coating or other surface treatment. Paper should
have as smooth and even a surface as possible.
Composition
Do not use paper that has been coated or surface-treated and contains
plastic or carbon. The heat of fusing can cause such paper to give off
harmful fumes.
Bond paper should contain at least 80 % pulp. Not more than 20 % of the
total paper content should consist of cotton or other fibers.
Paper Sizes
Cassettes and the MP tray are available for the paper sizes listed in the
table below. For details, including the paper sizes for the paper feeder
(Optional paper feeder PF-520, PF-530) refer to Cassette (1 to 4) Size
(Setting the cassette paper size) on page 4-31.
The dimensional tolerances are ±0.7 mm (±0.0276 inches) for the length
and width. The angle at the corners must be 90° ±0.2°.

Handling Paper
Smoothness
The paper should have a smooth, uncoated surface. Paper with a rough
or sandy surface can cause voids in the printed output. Paper that is too
smooth can cause multiple feeding and fogging problems. (Fogging is a
gray background effect.)
Basis Weight
Basis weight is the weight of paper expressed in grams per square meter
(g/m²). Paper that is too heavy or too light may cause feed errors or paper
jams as well as premature wear of the product. Uneven weight of paper,
namely uneven paper thickness may cause multiple-sheet feeding or
print quality problems such as blurring because of poor toner fusing.
Paper Weight Equivalence Table

Thickness
The paper used with the machine should be neither extremely thick nor
extremely thin. If you are having problems with paper jams, multiple
feeds, and faint printing, the paper you are using may be too thin. If you
are having problems with paper jams and blurred printing the paper may
be too thick.
Moisture Content
Moisture content is defined as the percent ratio of moisture to the dry
mass of the paper. Moisture can affect the paper’s appearance, feed
ability, curl, electrostatic properties, and toner fusing characteristics.
3-5
Handling Paper
The moisture content of the paper varies with the relative humidity in the
room. When the relative humidity is high and the paper absorbs moisture,
the paper edges expand, becoming wavy in appearance. When the
relative humidity is low and the paper loses moisture, the edges shrink
and tighten, and print contrast may suffer.
Wavy or tight edges can cause jams and alignment anomalies. The
moisture content of the paper should be 4 to 6 %.
To ensure correct moisture content, it is important to store the paper in a
controlled environment. Some tips on moisture control are:
• Store paper in a cool, dry location.
• Keep the paper in its wrapping as long as possible. Re-wrap paper
that is not in use.
• Store paper in its original carton. Place a pallet etc. under the carton
to separate it from the floor.
• After removing paper from storage, let it stand in the same room as
the machine for 48 hours before use.
• Avoid leaving paper where it is exposed to heat, sunlight, or damp.
Note When using coated paper, be aware that the sheets will
stick together in a very humid environment.
Paper Grain
When paper is manufactured, it is cut into sheets with the grain running
parallel to the length (long grain) or parallel to the width (short grain).
Short grain paper can cause feeding problems in the machine. All paper
used in the machine should be long grain.
Other Paper Properties
Porosity: Indicates the density of paper fiber.
Stiffness: Limp paper may buckle in the machine, resulting in paper
jams.
Curl: Most paper naturally tends to curl one way if left unpacked.
Electrostatic discharge: During the printing process the paper is
electrostatically charged to attract the toner. The paper must be able to
release this charge so that printed sheets do not cling together in the
Output Tray.
Whiteness: The contrast of the printed page depends on the whiteness
of the paper. Whiter paper provides a sharper, brighter appearance.
Quality control: Uneven sheet size, corners that are not square, ragged
edges, welded (uncut) sheets, and crushed edges and corners can cause
the machine to malfunction in various ways. A quality paper supplier
should take considerable care to ensure that these problems do not
occur.
Packaging: Paper should be packed in a sturdy carton to protect it from
damage during transport. Quality paper obtained from a reputable
supplier is usually correctly packaged.
Note You might see the printer emitting steam in the area around
the top tray if you use damp paper, but it is safe to continue
printing.

Use paper that is sold specifically for use with copiers or printers (heatfusing type). When using transparencies, labels, thin paper, envelopes,
postcards, or thick paper, feed the paper from the MP tray. For details,
refer to Paper Source (Selecting the paper feed source) on page 4-37.
Since the composition and quality of special paper vary considerably,
special paper is more likely than white bond paper to give trouble during
printing. No liability will be assumed if moisture and so forth given off
during printing on special paper causes harm to the machine or operator.
Note Before purchasing any type of special paper, test a sample
on the machine and check that printing quality is satisfactory.
Transparency
Transparencies must be able to withstand the heat of fusing during the
printing process. The recommended transparency product is 3M CG3700
(Letter, A4).

3-7
Handling Paper
To prevent printing problems, feed transparencies into the printer one
sheet at a time from the MP tray. Always load the transparencies vertically
(with the long edge towards the printer).
If the transparencies have rough edges on the back, it may cause a paper
jam. Remove the rough edges, reverse the sides or feed the sheet from
the opposite edge.
When unloading transparencies (e.g., for clearing jams), hold them
carefully by the edges to avoid leaving fingerprints on them.
Labels
Labels must be fed from the MP tray or optional paper feeder PF-530.
The basic rule for printing on adhesive labels is that the adhesive must
never come into contact with any part of the machine. Adhesive paper
sticking to the drum or rollers will damage the machine.
Top sheet (white
bond paper)
Adhesive
Carrier sheet
Label paper has a structure comprising of three layers, as shown in the
diagram. The top sheet is printed on. The adhesive layer consists of
pressure-sensitive adhesives. The carrier sheet (also called the linear or
backing sheet) holds the labels until used. Due to the complexity of its
composition, adhesive-backed label paper is particularly likely to give
printing problems.
Adhesive label paper must be entirely covered by its top sheet, with no
spaces between the individual labels. Labels with spaces in between are
liable to peel off, causing serious paper jam problems.
Some label paper is manufactured with an extra margin of top sheet
around the edge. Do not remove the extra top sheet from the carrier sheet
until after printing is finished.

Postcards
Fan the stack of postcards and align the edges before loading them in the
MP tray. Make sure the postcards you are going to set are not curled.
Feeding curled postcards may cause paper jams.
Rough
Edge
Some postcards have rough edges on the back (those are created when
the paper is cut). In this case, put the postcards on a flat place and rub
the edges with, for example, a ruler to smooth them.
Rough
Edge
Envelopes
Envelopes should always be fed from the MP tray, with the print-side up.
Envelopes must be fed from the MP tray or optional paper feeder PF-530.
Since the composition of an envelope is more complex than that of
ordinary paper, it is not always possible to ensure consistent printing
quality over the entire envelope surface.
Normally, envelopes have a diagonal grain direction. Refer to Paper
Grain on page 3-6. This direction can easily cause wrinkles and creases
when envelopes pass through the printer. Before purchasing envelopes,
make a test print to check whether the printer accepts the envelope.
• Do not use envelopes that have an encapsulated liquid adhesive.
• Avoid a long printing session for envelopes only. Extended envelope
printing can cause premature printer wear.
• If jams occur, try setting a lesser number of envelopes on the MP tray.
• To avoid jams caused by curled envelopes, stack no more than 10
printed envelopes on the top tray.

Fan the stack of paper and align the edges before loading them. Some
types of paper have rough edges on the back (those are created when the
paper is cut). In this case, put the paper on a flat place and rub the edges
once or twice with, for example, a ruler to smooth them. Feeding rough
edged paper may cause paper jams.
Note If the paper jams even after you smooth it out, load the
paper in the MP tray with the leading edge raised up a few
millimeters as shown in the illustration.
If you use thick paper quite often, we recommend to use optional
paper feeder PF-530.
3-10
Handling Paper
Colored Paper
Colored paper should satisfy the same conditions as white bond paper,
refer to Paper Specifications on page 3-2. In addition, the pigments used
in the paper must be able to withstand the heat of fusing during the
printing process (up to 200 °C or 392 °F).
Note If you use colored paper quite often, we recommend to use
optional paper feeder PF-530.
Preprinted Paper
Preprinted paper should satisfy the same conditions as white bond paper,
refer to Paper Specifications on page 3-2. The preprinted ink must be able
to withstand the heat of fusing during the printing process, and must not
be affected by silicone oil. Do not use paper with any kind of surface
treatment, such as the type of paper commonly used for calendars.
Recycled Paper
Select recycled paper that meets the same specifications as the white
bond paper except for whiteness, refer to Paper Specifications on page
3-2.
Note Before purchasing recycled paper, test a sample on the
machine and check that the printing quality is satisfactory.
Coated Paper
Coated paper is created by treating the surface of the base paper with a
coating that provides higher printing quality than plain paper. Coated
paper is used for particularly high quality printing.
The surface of high-quality or medium-quality paper is coated with special
agents that improve ink adhesion by making the paper surface smoother.
These agents are used either to coat both sides of the paper or just one
side. The coated side appears slightly glossy.
IMPORTANT When printing on coated paper in very humid environments, ensure that the paper is kept dry as moisture may cause
sheets to stick together when they are fed into the printer.
Paper Type Indicators (Optional paper feeder PF-530)
If you are going to load non-standard paper in the optional paper feeder
PF-530, fold the provided paper type indicator sheet into thirds so that the
appropriate paper type symbol faces out and is at the top, and insert it into
the cassette's display folder.

Paper Type
The printer is capable of printing under the optimum setting for the type of
paper being used.
Setting the paper type for the paper source from the printer’s operation
panel will cause the printer to automatically select the paper source and
print in the mode best suited to that type of paper.
A different paper type setting can be made for each paper source
including the MP tray. Not only can preset paper types be selected, but it
is also possible for you to define and select customized paper types.

Using Proof-and-Hold
When you print multiple copies, this mode first prints one copy so that you
can proof it before continuing to print the remaining copies. Since you can
proof the printouts before printing the remaining copies, wastage of paper
can be reduced.
The printer prints one copy and, at the same time, saves the print job on
the SSD/RAM disk. You can also change the number of copies when
resuming printing from the operation panel.
When the printer is turned off, all stored jobs will be deleted.

Network (Network settings)
This printer supports TCP/IP and TCP/IP (IPv6) protocols.
IP is an abbreviation for Internet Protocol. This printer routinely uses the
TCP/IP (IPv4) protocol, but provides a separate setting for the nextgeneration IP, IPv6.
TCP/IP (IPv4) uses 32-bit IP addresses, but the rapid growth in the
number of Internet users has resulted in a shortage of IP addresses. IPv6
was developed to expand the range of available IP addresses by using
128-bit IP addresses.
The options available in the Network settings are as follows:
• TCP/IP (IPv4 settings)
• TCP/IP (IPv6) (IPv6 settings)
• Protocol Detail (Detailed settings for the network protocol)
• Restart Network (Restarting the network card)
Note Check with your network administrator when selecting the
network setting. After all network related settings have been
done, restart the network. Refer to Restart Network (Restarting
the network card) on page 4-55. This is mandatory to make the
settings effective!
When Command Center RX is used, network parameters and
security settings can be conveniently changed and checked from
your PC. For more information, refer to the Command Center RX
User Guide.

TCP/IP (IPv4 settings)
This selects the settings for TCP/IP (IPv4).
The TCP/IP system refers to the Internet system, which has a 5-layer
structure consisting of the interface layer, link layer, network (IP) layer,
transport (TCP/UDP) layer and application layer.
The interface layer is a key layer in the TCP/IP system that provides an
abstracted interface that is not dependent on the link (communication
line: frame relay or Ethernet, etc.) to the IP module (IP layer). This means
that the IP module can use this abstracted interface (which is not
dependent on the link type) to exchange IP packets back and forth with
the link layer.
The options available in the TCP/IP (IPv4) settings are as follows:
• DHCP (DHCP setting)
• Auto-IP (Auto-IP setting)
• IP Address (IP address setting)
• Subnet Mask (Subnet mask setting)
• Gateway (Gateway setting)

IP Address (IP address setting)
An IP address is the address of a network device such as a computer and
is included in IP packets as needed for the sending and receiving of
Internet data (IP packets). (IP addresses can be either destination
addresses or source addresses.)
Specifically, an IP address is a bit string consisting of a host address (or
host section) that identifies a computer connected to the Internet and a
4-48
Using the Operation Panel
network address (or network section) that identifies the network to which
that computer belongs (or more specifically, the computer's network
interface). Bit strings (IP addresses) that are unique throughout the entire
Internet system are allocated to each computer or interface.
The IP addresses currently used on the Internet (IPv4) have a fixed length
of 32 bits.
Note When you enter the IP address, be sure to set the DHCP
setting to Off.

Press  or  repeatedly until >>IP Address appears.
Press [MENU]. The display returns to Ready.
Subnet Mask (Subnet mask setting)
The subnet mask is a way of augmenting the network address section of
an IP address.
A subnet mask represents all network address sections as 1 and all host
address sections as 0. The number of bits in the prefix indicates the
length of the network address. The term "prefix" refers to something
added to the beginning and, in this context, indicates the first section of
the IP address.
When an IP address is written, the length of the network address can
indicated by the prefix length after a forward slash (/). For example, "24"
in the address "133.210.2.0/24". In this way, "133.210.2.0/24" denotes
the IP address "133.210.2.0" with a 24-bit prefix (network section).
This new network address section (originally part of the host address)
made possible by the subnet mask is referred to as the subnet address.
Note When you enter the subnet mask, be sure to set the DHCP
setting to Off.

For example, a "Gateway" device is required to connect a different closed
network (using its own protocols) to the open Internet (using TCP/IP).
By installing a gateway, the communications protocols and data display
modes on different networks can be made compatible.
On TCP/IP networks, the term gateway is used to refer to routers.
Note Before you input the gateway, be sure to set the DHCP
setting to Off.

Bonjour (Bonjour setting)
Bonjour, also known as zero-configuration networking, is a service that
automatically detects computers, devices and services on an IP network.
Bonjour, because an industry-standard IP protocol is used, allows
devices to automatically recognize each other without an IP address
being specified or DNS server being set.
Bonjour also sends and receives network packets by UDP port 5353. If a
firewall is enabled, the user must check that UDP port 5353 is left open
so that Bonjour will run correctly. Some firewalls are set up so as to reject
only certain Bonjour packets. If Bonjour does not run stably, check the
firewall settings and ensure that Bonjour is registered on the exceptions
list and that Bonjour packets are accepted. If you install Bonjour on
Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later, the Windows firewall will be set up
correctly for Bonjour.

DHCPv6 permits the DHCP server to use its expanded functionality to
send configuration parameters to an IPv6 node. Because the network
addresses that can be used are allocated automatically, the IPv6 node
management workload is reduced in systems where the administrator
has to exercise close control over IP address allocation.

Netware (NetWare setting)
NetWare is a PC-based network operating system specifically for servers.
NetWare is a client-server system that operates by installing the NetWare
OS on the server and dedicated client modules (NetWare clients) on the
client machines (running MS-DOS, OS/2, Windows, etc.). The basic
network layer protocol used is NetWare's own IPX (Internetwork Packet
eXchange)/SPX (Sequenced Packet eXchange), but the system also
supports TCP/IP.
The feature of the NetWare OS is that it is specifically for servers, unlike
general-purpose operating systems such as Windows NT and UNIX. Only
the minimum required for server operation can be performed from the
NetWare OS console on the server. Server and file management is
basically carried out using management tools from the clients. Also, all
drivers and protocol stacks are in the form of modules called NetWare
Loadable Modules (NLMs), and the ability of NLMs to load and unload
flexibly and dynamically is a major advantage of this system.

RAM Disk Mode (Using the RAM disk)
The RAM disk is a memory space shared within the printer memory that
can temporarily store print jobs. The stored print job can then be used to
print multiple copies of the job reducing the total amount of time required
to print the whole job. It acts similar to the SSD except that the data is
effective only when the printer is powered up.
To use the RAM disk, activate and enter the desired size of the RAM disk
in the manner described below. The maximum RAM disk size can be
calculated as follows:
When the RAM disk is activated = The maximum RAM disk size is 32 MB
(when no options are attached)
When the optional memory is installed = The maximum RAM disk size is
1/2 of the total optional memory installed
To activate RAM disk in the printer's memory, first you must set the RAM
disk mode to On and set the desired data size for the RAM disk as
described in the following section. This allows you to perform the
following operations on the RAM disk.
Note The printer supports two types of storage device; optional
SSD and RAM disk. The optional SSD is installed into the
dedicated slot of the printer. The RAM disk is an allocated part of
the printer’s memory.
IMPORTANT The RAM disk can not be used when an optional SSD
is installed.
The RAM disk stores data only temporarily. When the printer is reset
or turned off, the stored data will be erased.
The RAM disk allows some Job Box functions to be used.
The RAM disk is allocated from the printer memory available to users.
If the size of the RAM disk is set too large, the printing speed may
decrease or the memory may become insufficient.

Maintenance
General Information
This chapter describes basic maintenance tasks you can perform on the
printer. You can replace the following component according to the
printer’s display:
• Toner Kits
• Waste Toner Box
Also, the following parts need periodic cleaning:
• Paper Transfer Unit
Note Information Collection on Memory Chips - The memory
chip attached to the toner container is designed to improve
convenience for the end user; to support the recycling operation
of empty toner containers; and to gather information to support
new product planning and development. The information
gathered is anonymous - it cannot be associated to any specific
individual and the data is intended to be used anonymously.
Toner Container Replacement
The toner container in the printer should be replaced as soon as the
message display shows Toner low or soon after. If you continue to use
the printer, eventually the toner supply will be exhausted at which point
the printer will stop printing and the Replace toner C,M,Y,K message
will be shown instructing you to install a new toner kit.
Frequency of Toner Container Replacement
The life of the toner containers depends on the amount of toner required
to accomplish your printing jobs. According to ISO/IEC 19798 and
EcoPrint switched off the toner container can print as follows (A4/Letter
paper is assumed):

Note The toner container packed with the new printer has to fill
up the system when operating the first time. Therefore only
30~50% of the first toner kits can be used for printing.
5-2
Maintenance
Toner Kits
For best results, we recommend that you only use genuine Kyocera Parts
and Supplies.
The toner kits are supplied in 4 different colors: cyan, magenta, yellow
and black.
A new toner kit for each color contains the following items:
• Toner Container
• Plastic waste bags for old toner container and old waste toner box
• Waste Toner Box
• Installation Guide
Note Do not remove the toner container from the carton until you
are ready to install it in the printer.
Understanding Messages Requesting Toner Container
Replacement
The printer displays messages for individual colors at two stages of toner
usage. This message is automatically alternated with the other printer
message (such as Ready):
• When the printer becomes low on toner, for example in the cyan
container, the printer displays the message Toner low C as the first
caution. Note the replacement is not always necessary at this stage.
• If you ignore the above message and continue printing, the printer
displays the message Replace toner — just before the toner is
used up. The toner container must be replaced immediately. Clean
the separate charger wires, etc. After the cleaning is finished,
however, the message does not automatically change to Ready. To
restart printing, you must press [GO] and make the printer ready.
In either case, replace the toner container, refer to Toner Container
Replacement on page 5-2.
5-3
Maintenance
Replacing the Toner Container
This section explains how to replace the toner containers. When
replacing the toner container of any color, always replace the waste toner
box at the same time. If this box is full, the printer may be damaged or
contaminated by the waste toner that may spill over the box.
CAUTION Do not attempt to incinerate parts which contain
toner. Dangerous sparks may cause burns.
IMPORTANT During toner container replacement, temporarily move
storage media and computer supplies (such as floppy disks) away
from the toner container. This is to avoid damaging media by the
magnetism of toner.
IMPORTANT Kyocera Document Solutions Inc. is not liable against
any damages or problems arising from the use of toner containers
other than those designated as original Kyocera toner containers. For
optimum performance, it is also recommended to use only the
Kyocera toner containers which are specifically intended for use in
your country or region. If the toner container for another destination is
installed, the printer will stop printing.
Note You do not have to turn printer power off before starting the
replacement. Any data that may be processing in the printer will
be deleted if you turn the printer power off.
To replace the toner container, first make sure of the color of the toner
container requiring replacement. In this example, it is assumed that you
are replacing the cyan toner container.

Cleaning the Printer
The paper transfer unit should be cleaned each time the toner container
and waste toner box are replaced.
To maintain optimum print quality, it is also recommended that the inside
of the printer be cleaned once a month as well as when the toner
container is replaced.
It should also be cleaned if streaking or lines appear on printed copies, or
if printouts appear faint or blurred.
Cleaning the Paper Transfer Unit
Print problems such as soiling of the reverse side of printed pages may
occur if the paper transfer unit becomes dirty. To clean the paper transfer
unit, you must use the dry cloth.
1
Pull up the rear cover lever and open the rear cover.

Troubleshooting
General Considerations for Clearing Jams
Bear in mind the following considerations when attempting jam removal:
CAUTION When pulling the paper, pull it gently so as not to
tear it. Torn pieces of paper are difficult to remove and may
be easily overlooked, deterring the jam recovery.
• If paper jams occur frequently, try using a different type of paper,
replace the paper with paper from another ream, flip the paper stack
over, or rotate the paper stack 180 degrees. The printer may have
problems if paper jams recur after the paper was replaced.
• Whether or not the jammed pages are reproduced normally after
printing is resumed depends on the location of the paper jam.
Utilizing Online Help Messages
Online help messages are available in the printer’s message display to
provide simple instructions for clearing jams. Press ( ) when the paper
jam message has appeared. Then a help message will appear to facilitate
jam clearing in the location.

Glossary
Additional memory
An additional memory (optional) is used for increasing the memory
capacity of this machine. For DIMM that can be used in this machine,
contact your service technician.
AppleTalk
AppleTalk offers file sharing and printer sharing and it also enables you to
utilize application software that is on another computer on the same
AppleTalk network.
Custom Box
The Custom Box function stores print data for each individual user on the
printer and allows the user to print single or multiple copies of the stored
data later using the printer's operation panel.
Default Gateway
This indicates the device, such as a computer or router, that serves as the
entrance/exit (gateway) for accessing computers outside of the network
that you are on. When no specific gateway is designated for a destination
IP address, data is sent to the host that is designated as the Default
Gateway.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
This is a protocol that automatically resolves the IP address, Subnet
Mask and Gateway address on a TCP/IP network. Use of DHCP
minimizes the load of network administration, especially on network
environments with a large number of client computers where it is not
specifically necessary to assign a separate IP address to each client,
including printers.
dpi (dots per inch)
This indicates the number of dots printed per inch (25.4 mm) as a unit for
expressing resolution.
EcoPrint
This is a printing mode that reduces toner consumption. Pages printed in
the EcoPrint mode are lighter than pages printed in the normal mode.
Emulation
This refers to emulation of other manufacturers’ printers. The printer
emulates operation of the following printers: PCL6 and KPDL.
Form Feed Timeout
While data is being sent to a printer, some pauses may occur. At this time,
the printer waits for the next data without making a page break. Form feed
timeout is a function to wait only a preset amount of time before it
executes an automatic page break. After the waiting period begins, once
the designated amount of time is exceeded, the printer will automatically
process the currently received data and print it out. If the machine has
Glossary-1
Glossary
received no print data for the last page, the printer ends processing of that
job without outputting paper.
IP Address (Internet Protocol Address)
The Internet Protocol address is a unique number that represents a
specific computer in a network. The format of an IP Address is four
numbers separated by dots, e.g. 192.168.110.171. Each number should
be a decimal between 0 and 255.
Job Box
The Job Box function stores print data on the printer and allows users to
print single or multiple copies of the stored data later using the printer's
operation panel.
KPDL
KPDL is Kyocera’s implementation of the PostScript page description
language Level3.
MP Tray
This tray is used instead of the cassette when printing on envelopes,
postcards, transparency sheets, and labels.
NetBEUI (NetBIOS Extended User Interface)
An enhanced version of the NetBIOS protocol, it enables the utilization of
more advanced functions on small-scale networks than do other
protocols such as TCP/IP, etc.
Outline font
With outline fonts, character outlines are represented with numerical
expressions and fonts can be enlarged or reduced in different ways by
changing the numeric values of those expressions. Printing remains clear
even if you enlarge fonts, since the characters are defined with outlines
represented with numerical expressions. You can specify the font size in
steps of 0.25 points up to 999.75 points.
PostScript
This is a page description language developed by Adobe Systems, Inc. It
enables flexible font functions and highly-functional graphics, allowing
higher quality printing.
PPM (prints per minute)
