Wireless Guidance
Low power, Radio LAN type devices (radio frequency (RF) wireless communication
devices), operating in the 2.4 GHz Band, may be present (embedded) in your printer
system. The following section is a general overview of considerations while operating
a wireless device.
Additional limitations, cautions, and concerns for specific countries are listed in the
specific country sections (or country group sections). The wireless devices in your
system are only qualified for use in the countries identified by the Radio Approval
Marks on the system rating label. If the country you will be using the wireless device
in, is not listed, please contact your local Radio Approval agency for requirements.
Wireless devices are closely regulated and use may not be allowed.
The power output of the wireless device or devices that may be embedded in your
printer is well below the RF exposure limits as known at this time. Because the
wireless devices (which may be embedded your printer) emit less energy than is
allowed in radio frequency safety standards and recommendations, the manufacturer
believes these devices are safe for use. Regardless of the power levels, care should
be taken to minimize human contact during normal operation.
As a general guideline, a separation of 20 cm (8 inches) between the wireless device
and the body, for use of a wireless device near the body (this does not include
extremities) is typical. This device should be used more than 20 cm (8 inches) from
the body when wireless devices are on and transmitting.
xv
This transmitter must not be collocated or operated in conjunction with any other
antenna or transmitter.
Some circumstances require restrictions in wireless devices. Examples of common
restrictions are listed below:
Radio frequency wireless communication can interfere with equipment
on commercial aircraft. Current aviation regulations require wireless
devices to be turned off while traveling in an airplane. 802.11B (also
known as wireless Ethernet) and Bluetooth communication devices are
examples of devices that provide wireless communication.
In environments where the risk of interference to other devices or
services is harmful or perceived as harmful, the option to use a wireless
device may be restricted or eliminated. Airports, Hospitals, and Oxygen
or flammable gas-laden atmospheres are limited examples where use of
wireless devices may be restricted or eliminated. When in environments
where you are uncertain of the sanction to use wireless devices, ask the
applicable authority for authorization prior to use or turning on the
wireless device.
Every country has different restrictions on the use of wireless devices.
Since your system is equipped with a wireless device, when traveling
between countries with your system, check with the local Radio Approval
authorities prior to any move or trip for any restrictions on the use of a
wireless device in the destination country.
If your system came equipped with an internal embedded wireless
device, do not operate the wireless device unless all covers and shields
are in place and the system is fully assembled.
Wireless devices are not user serviceable. Do not modify them in any
way. Modification to a wireless device will void the authorization to use
it. Please contact manufacturer for service.
Only use drivers approved for the country in which the device will be
used. See the manufacturer System Restoration Kit, or contact
manufacturer Technical Support for additional information.

CAUTIONS:
• To prevent damage, do not expose the toner cartridge to light for
more than a few minutes. Cover it with a piece of paper if left
exposed for more than a few minutes and keep it in a flat and
clean place.
• If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and
wash clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric.
4 Locate the cartridge slots inside the printer, one on each
side.

Guidelines for Paper and Special Materials
When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other special
materials, 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.
• Use only high-quality, copier grade paper for the best print
quality.
• Do not use paper that has already been printed on or that has
been fed through a photocopier.
• Do not use paper with irregularities, such as tabs or staples.
• Do not attempt to load any tray during printing and never
overfill the tray. This could cause a paper jam.
• Avoid paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or texture
that is too smooth or too rough.
• Coloured paper should be of the same high quality as white
photocopy paper. The pigments must withstand the printer’s
fusing temperature of 400°F (205°C) for 0.1 second without
deterioration. Do not use paper with a coloured coating that
was added after the paper was produced.
• Preprinted forms must be printed with nonflammable, heatresistant inks that do not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous
emissions when subject to the printer’s approximately 400°F
(205°C) fusing temperature for 0.1 second.
• Store paper in its ream wrapper until ready to use. 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.
NOTE: Do not use carbonless paper or tracing paper. They are
unstable at the fusing temperature and can give off fumes, or
cause damage to the paper.
3.4
USING PRINT MATERIALS
Selecting the Output Location
The printer has two output locations; the rear output tray and
the top output tray.
Top output tray
Rear output tray
3
To use the top output tray, be sure that the rear output tray is
closed. To use the rear output tray, open it.
NOTES:
• If paper coming out of the top output tray has problems, such as
excessive curl, try printing to the rear output tray.
• To avoid paper jams, do not open or close the rear output tray
while the printer is printing.
Printing to the Top Output Tray
(Face down)
The top output tray collects paper face-down, in the order in
which it was printed. The top output tray should be used for
most print jobs.
NOTE: If you continuously print many pages, the surface of the
output tray may become hot. Be careful not to touch the surface,
and especially keep children away from the surface.
USING PRINT MATERIALS
3.5
Printing to the Rear Output Tray
(Face up)
The printer always prints to the rear output tray if it is open.
Paper comes out of the printer face-up, and each time a sheet
of paper comes out, it falls down from the printer.
Printing from the Multi-Purpose Tray to the rear output tray
provides a straight paper path. Opening the rear output tray
might improve the output quality with the following:
• envelopes
• labels
• transparencies
To open the rear output tray:
1 Open the rear door by pulling it down. The cover functions
as the output tray.
CAUTION: The fusing area at the rear portion of the inside of
your printer is hot when powered. Be careful not to be burned
when accessing this area.
3.6
USING PRINT MATERIALS
2 If you do not want to use the rear output tray, close the
tray. The pages will stack on the top output tray.
3
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 3.3 for acceptable paper size and capacities
for each tray.
The paper level bar on the front of the paper tray(s) shows the
amount of paper currently left in the tray. When the tray is
empty, the indicator drops to the bottom.

USING PRINT MATERIALS
3.7
Using Tray1 or the Optional Tray2
Tray1 and the optional Tray2 can hold up to 250 sheets of paper.
See “Sizes and Capacities” on page 3.3 for acceptable paper size
and capacities of each tray.
Tray1
Optional Tray2
Load a stack of paper into the tray and print. For details about
loading paper in Tray1 or the optional Tray2, see “Loading
Paper” on page 2.7.
Using the Multi-Purpose Tray
The multi-Purpose Tray is located in the front of your printer. It
can be closed when you are not using it, making the printer
more compact.
Multi-Purpose Tray
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, coloured paper for use as separator sheets, or
other special materials that you do not normally keep in the
paper tray. You can load approximately 50 sheets of plain paper,
5 envelopes, 5 transparencies, 5 sheets of card stock or 5 labels
at a time.
3.8
USING PRINT MATERIALS
• Load only one size of print material 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 print materials.
• Print materials should be loaded face up with the top edge
going into the Multi-Purpose Tray first and be placed on the
centre of the tray.
• Do not place objects on the Multi-Purpose Tray. Also avoid
pressing down or applying excessive force on it. The tray may
fall from the printer.
To load paper in the Multi-Purpose Tray:
1 Pull the Multi-Purpose Tray down towards you.

2 Unfold the extender to extend the tray to its full-length to
hold longer paper.
USING PRINT MATERIALS

3 Prepare a stack of paper for loading by flexing or fanning
the paper back and forth. Straighten the edges on a level
surface.
4 Place paper on the centre of the tray with the print side
face up. Pay attention to the paper limit mark on the left
inside wall of the tray. Paper overloading may cause paper
jams.
If you want to print on previously printed paper from the
Multi-Purpose Tray, the printed side should be facing down
with an uncurled edge to the printer. If you experience
problems with paper feed, turn the paper around.
NOTE: Make sure that you have not loaded too much print
material. The print material buckles if you load a stack that is too
deep or push it in too far.
3.10 USING PRINT MATERIALS
5 Slide the paper width guide and adjust it against the stack
of print material without bending.

NOTE: Your printer cannot automatically detect the size of paper
loaded in the Multi-Purpose Tray. Loading the Multi-Purpose Tray
with the correct paper size allows you to select paper by size rather
than paper source when you print from your software application.
You do not have to check which paper is loaded in the Multipurpose Tray before printing.
6 When you print a document, select the paper source and
type in the software application.
7 After printing, push the extender back to its place and close
the Multi-Purpose Tray.
USING PRINT MATERIALS 3.11
Using the Manual Feed Mode
If you select Manual Feed in the Source option when changing
print settings, you can manually load a sheet of print material in
the Multi-Purpose Tray. Manually loading paper can be helpful
when you want to check the print quality after each page is
printed.
This loading procedure is almost the same as the procedure for
loading in the Multi-Purpose Tray, except you load paper sheetby-sheet in the Tray, send print data to print the first page, and
press the Cancel button on the control panel to print each
following page.
1 Load a sheet of print material on the centre of the MultiPurpose Tray with the print side up.
2 Slide the paper width guide and adjust it against the
material without bending.

Printing on Envelopes
Guidelines
• Only use envelopes recommended for laser printers. Before
loading envelopes into the Multi-Purpose Tray, make sure
that they are undamaged and are not stuck together.
• Do not feed stamped envelopes.
• Never use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows, coated
lining, or self-stick adhesives. These envelopes may severely
damage the printer.
1 Open the Multi-Purpose Tray and unfold the extender to its
full-length position.
2 Open the rear output tray.
3.14 USING PRINT MATERIALS
3 Flex or fan the edge of the envelope stack to separate the
pages before loading.
4 Load the envelopes onto the Multi-Purpose Tray with the
flap side down.
The stamp area is on the left side and the end of the
envelope with the stamp area enters the tray first.

5 Adjust the guide to the edge of the envelope stack.
USING PRINT MATERIALS 3.15
6 When you print on envelopes, select the appropriate paper
source, type, and size in the software application. For
details, see page 4.7.
7 After printing, close the Multi-Purpose Tray and the rear

3.16 USING PRINT MATERIALS
Printing on Labels
Guidelines
• Only use labels recommended for laser printers.
• Verify that the labels’ adhesive material can tolerate fusing
temperature of 205°C (400°F) for 0.1 second.
• Make sure that there is no exposed adhesive material
between the labels. Exposed areas can cause labels to peel
off during printing, which can cause paper jams. Exposed
adhesive can also cause damage to printer components.
• Do not feed a sheet of labels through the printer more than
once. The adhesive backing is designed for one pass through
the printer.
• Do not use labels that are separating from the backing sheet
or are wrinkled, bubbled, or otherwise damaged.
1 Open the Multi-Purpose Tray and the rear output tray.
2 Load labels with the print side up.
USING PRINT MATERIALS 3.17

output tray.
NOTE: To prevent labels from sticking, do not let the printed label
sheets stack up as they are printed out.
3.18 USING PRINT MATERIALS
Printing on Transparencies
Guidelines
• Only use transparencies recommended for use in laser
printers.
• Ensure that transparencies are not wrinkled, curled, or have
any torn edges.
• Hold the transparencies by the edges and avoid touching the
print side. Oils deposited on the transparency can cause print
quality problems.
• Be careful not to scratch or leave fingerprints on the print
side.
1 Open the Multi-Purpose Tray and the rear output tray.
2 Load transparencies with the print side up, and the top
with the adhesive strip entering the printer first.

details, see page 4.7.
5 After printing, close the Multi-Purpose Tray and the rear
output tray.
NOTES:
• If you print on thin transparencies to the rear output tray, they
can curl. In this case, use the top output tray. If the problem
persists, check if your transparencies meet the printer’s
specifications.
• To prevent transparencies from sticking, do not let the printed
sheets stack up as they are printed out.
• Place transparencies on a flat surface after removing them from
the printer.
3.20 USING PRINT MATERIALS
Printing on Card Stock or
Custom-sized Materials
Postcards, 3.5 by 5.83 in. (index) cards and other custom-sized
materials can be printed with your printer. The minimum size is
76 by 127 mm (3 by 5 in.) and the maximum size is 216 by
356 mm (8.5 by 14 in.).
Guidelines
• Always insert the short-edge into the Multi-Purpose Tray first.
If you want to print in landscape mode, make this selection
through your software. Inserting paper long-edge first may
cause a paper jam.
• Do not load more than 5 cards into the Multi-Purpose Tray at
a time.
• Do not print on media smaller than 76 mm (3 in.) wide or 127
mm(5 in.) long.
• Set margins at least 6.4 mm (0.25 in.) away from the edges
of the material in the software application

3.22 USING PRINT MATERIALS
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).
Guidelines
• Letterheads 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 400 °F
(205 °C) for 0.1 second.
• Ink on letterheads must be non-flammable and should not
adversely affect any printer rollers.
• Forms and letterhead should be sealed in a moisture-proof
wrapping to prevent changes during storage.
• Before you load preprinted paper as forms and letterhead,
verify that the ink on the paper is dry. During the fusing
process, wet ink can come off preprinted paper.
1 Load letterhead into the tray you want to use, as shown in
the figures below. Adjust the guides to fit the width of the
paper stack.

Using Overlays
What is an Overlay?
Dear ABC
Regards
WORLD BEST
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 a page overlay, you must create a new page overlay
containing your logo or image.

• Download as Bit Image: When this
option is selected, the driver will
download the font data as bitmap
images. Documents with complicated
fonts, such as Korean or Chinese, or
various other fonts, will print faster in
this setting.
• Print as Graphics: When this option is
selected, the driver will download any
fonts as graphics. When printing
documents with high graphic content and
relatively few TrueType fonts, printing
performance (speed) may be enhanced
in this setting.

allowed to print solid black, regardless of
the colour it appears on the screen. When
it is not checked, coloured text is allowed

MAINTAINING YOUR PRINTER
This chapter provides suggestions for high-quality and
economical printing and information for maintaining the
toner cartridge and the printer.
This chapter includes:
• Maintaining the Toner Cartridge
• Cleaning the Printer
• Printing Configuration Pages
• Consumables and Replacement Parts
Maintaining the Toner Cartridge
Toner cartridge storage
To get the maximum results from the toner cartridge, keep the
following guidelines in mind.
• Do not remove the toner cartridge from its package until ready
for use.
• Do not refill the toner cartridge. The printer warranty does
not cover damage caused by using a refilled cartridge.
• Store toner cartridges in the same environment as the printer.
• To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it 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 print jobs require. When printing text at 5% coverage, a
new toner cartridge lasts an average of 5,000 pages.
Saving toner
To save toner, press the Cancel button on the printer control
panel for 0.5 second. The button will be lit. You can also enable
the Toner Save in the printer properties. Refer to “Using the
Toner Save Mode” on page 4.9. Selecting this option will extend
the life of the toner cartridge and reduce your cost per page, but
will reduce the print quality.
5.2
MAINTAINING YOUR PRINTER
Redistributing Toner
When toner is low, faded or light areas may appear on a printed
page. You may be able to temporarily improve the print quality
by redistributing the toner. The following procedures may allow
you to finish the current print job before replacing the toner
cartridge.
1 Grasp the front cover and pull it toward you to open.
5
2 Pull the toner cartridge and remove it from the printer.
CAUTIONS:
• Avoid reaching too far into the printer. The fusing area may be
hot.
• To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it to
light for more than a few minutes. Cover it with a piece of paper,
if left exposed for more than a few minutes and keep it in a flat
and clean place.
MAINTAINING YOUR PRINTER
5.3
3 Gently shake the toner cartridge from side to side five or six
times to redistribute the toner.
NOTE: If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth
and wash clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric.
4 Reinsert the toner cartridge into the printer. Ensure that the
toner cartridge snaps into place.
5 Close the front cover. Make sure that the cover is securely
closed. If it is not firmly closed, printing errors may occur
when you print.
5.4
MAINTAINING YOUR PRINTER
Replacing the Toner Cartridge
If the print remains light after redistributing the toner (see
page 5.3), replace the toner cartridge.
Remove the old cartridge and install a new toner cartridge. See
“Installing the Toner Cartridge” on page 2.4.
Cleaning the Printer
To maintain print quality, follow the cleaning procedures below
each time the toner cartridge is replaced or if print quality
problems occur.
NOTE: While cleaning the inside of the printer, be careful not to
touch the transfer roller (located underneath the toner cartridge).
Oil from your fingers can cause print quality problems.
CAUTION: Cleaning the cabinet of the printer with surfactants
containing large amounts of alcohol, solvent, or other strong
substances can discolor or crack the cabinet.
Cleaning the Outside
Clean the cabinet of the printer with a soft, lint-free cloth. You
can dampen the cloth slightly with water, but be careful not to
let any water drip onto the printer or inside of
