HARD DISK OPTION
You can add a Hard Disk option to allow for permanent soft font and to enable
some printing features. The Hard Disk is required for the following features.
❐
❐
Disk Based Collation
Permanent PostScript® soft font storage
Installation
Use the instructions that come with the Hard Disk to install it.
Partitioning
The Hard Disk is partitioned as follows:
❐
Permanent storage - one half of the disk capacity is allocated for font data,
when the PostScript® option is installed. This reduces the available storage
area for Disk Based Collation.
❐
Temporary storage - one half of the disk capacity is allocated to Disk
Based Collation, when the PostScript® option is installed. If the PostScript®
option is not installed, temporary storage capacity occupies the full disk.
Disk Based Collation
This feature makes it easy to separate your printed output into complete sets,
and reduces printing time. You use the Disk Based Collation feature to print
multiple copy job in collated sets.
Normally, all copies of a single page are printed at the same time. For example,
when you specify five copies of a four-page job, five copies of page 1 are printed,
then five copies of page 2 are printed, and so forth. If you select Collation using
your application, the application sends the entire document to the printer five
times.
When you use the Disk Based Collation feature, your application sends the
entire document to the printer once. The printer images each page of the
document and stores the page images on the Hard Disk. The printer then
retrieves and prints pages 1 through the last page of the first set, pages 1
4-8
USING THE OPTIONS
through the last page of the second set, and so forth. It also reduces network
traffic, if the printer is connected to a network.
☛ Refer to Printer Driver/Utility Reference <PCL and TIFF> and Printer Driver/
Utility Reference <PostScript®-option>.
Soft Font Storage
You can use the Hard Disk to store PostScript® soft fonts that you commonly
use with your Windows or Macintosh applications. Storing soft fonts on the Hard
Disk reduces printing time because the printer driver does not have to retrieve
and download fonts for each print job.
You download PostScript® soft fonts for disk storage using your Windows 3.1
printer driver.
USING THE OPTIONS
☛ Refer to Printer Driver/Utility Reference <PostScript®-option> for more
information on downloading soft fonts using the optional PostScript® driver. If
you are using a Macintosh, you can use the LaserWriter Utility to download

Job Separation
When the Finisher is installed, all print jobs directed to the Finisher are separated
using the offset feature. The Finisher activates a jogger mechanism that moves
the Shift Tray slightly to the right or left for each job. This makes it easy to
determine where the end of a set or job occurs. Job separation is especially
useful when separating collated jobs.
4-20
USING THE OPTIONS
Face-up and Face-down Output
When you print a job using the Finisher, you can select whether you want the
printed pages output face-up or face-down to the Shift Tray. You can select faceup (FU) and face-down (FD) output from your application or by using the printer
Control Panel.
Select Face-up (FU) output when you print on envelopes, transparencies, labels,
or heavy paper. This provides a straighter paper path and helps to prevent
paper misfeeds.
Note: Selecting face-up printing outputs pages in reverse order.
Stapling
The stapling feature is available when the Finisher is installed. You can select
stapling from your application or by using the printer driver. The default setting
for stapling is Off.
The maximum job size for stapling is 20 pages per set, with a maximum of 30
sets. The stapler locates one diagonal staple at the upper left corner of each
set. You can use stapling with duplex jobs and collated jobs using the Disk
Based Collation.
Note: When you select collation using your application, collated sets are not
stapled properly. Either the entire job (all sets) is stapled together, or, if
the total job size exceeds 20 pages, the job is not stapled at all.
Note: When you select one of the following output combination, the stapler
places staples in an awkward position relative to the printed data:
1. Duplex, Short Edge binding, Landscape Orientation
2. Reverse Portrait Orientation, Simplex or Duplex
3. Reverse Landscape Orientation, Simplex or Duplex.
4-21
USING THE OPTIONS
Note: The stapling feature can be used only with A4 K or 8½” x 11" K, and

Before printing a duplex document, you must select one of the following modes.
Short Edge Binding - When printing in Portrait orientation, use this setting
for binding along the top edge of the paper, like a calendar. In Landscape
orientation, this setting produces output that can be bound along the left
edge of the paper, like a book.
❐
Long Edge Binding - When printing in Portrait orientation, use this setting

Mailbox
The Mailbox consists of four trays located above the Standard Tray. Each tray
has a capacity of 125 sheets. The Mailbox supplements the Standard Tray, and
when it is installed, the Standard Tray becomes Output Tray 1, while the trays in
the Mailbox become Output Tray 2, Output Tray 3, Output Tray 4, and Output
Tray 5.
Use the Mailbox to direct output to a specific bin. This feature is useful for
separating output by workgroup or project so that picking up printed output is
easier.
You can select Mailbox trays from your application or by using the printer driver.

OVERVIEW
This chapter provides information that may be helpful when print quality problems,
paper misfeeds, and error messages.
PRINTER OPERATIONAL PROBLEMS
This section contains information on the paper misfeed and other problems that
may occur, as well as the actions you can take to solve the problems. ☛ Refer
to the “Maintaining the Printer” chapter in this manual for further information on
basic maintenance tasks (for example, adding toner, paper, and staples).
Paper Misfeeds
When a paper misfeed occurs while printing is in progress, the printer stops
and the “Remove Misfeed <area>” message displays on the Control Panel. When
you clear the paper misfeed, the printer recovers and reprints the data that did
not print as a result of the misfeed.
When a paper misfeed occurs in the Standard Output Tray, the printer cannot
reprint the lost data. If you use the printer Control Panel to enable Jam
Recovery, however, the printer recovers and reprints all lost data.
☛ Refer to the “Using the Control Panel” chapter in this manual for information
on enabling Jam Recovery.
Note: When Jam Recovery is enabled, the printer can almost always recover
all lost pages. If a misfeed occurs in the Stapler the printer cannot reprint
lost pages.
