What Is the Guaranteed Imageable (Printable) Area?
The printable area on all media sizes is up to
4 mm (0.157") from the edges of the media.
Each media size has a specific imageable
area, the maximum area on which the printer
can print clearly and without distortion.

Area
This area is subject to both hardware limits
(the physical media size and the margins
required by the printer) and software cona

imageable (printable) area for all media
sizes is the page size minus 4 mm (0.157") from all edges of the media.

Page Margins
Margins are set through your application. Some applications allow you to set
custom page sizes and margins while others have only standard page sizes
and margins from which to choose. If you choose a standard format, you may
lose part of your image (due to imageable area constraints). If you can custom-size your page in your application, use those sizes given for the imageable area for optimum results.

Loading Media
How do I load media?
Take off the top and bottom sheets of a
ream of paper. Holding a stack of approximately 100 sheets at a time, fan the
stack to prevent static buildup before
inserting it in a tray.
"
Do not fan transparencies.
Note
Although this printer was designed for printing on a wide range of
media types, it is not intended to print exclusively on a single media
type except plain paper. Continuous printing on media other than plain
paper (such as envelopes, labels, thick stock, or transparencies) may
adversely affect print quality or reduce engine life.
When refilling media, first remove any media remaining in the tray. Stack it
with the new media, even the edges, then reload it.

Duplexing
Select paper with high opacity for duplex (double-sided) printing. Opacity
refers to how effectively paper blocks out what is written on the opposite side
of the page. If the paper has low opacity (high translucency), then the printed
data from one side of the page will show through to the other side. Check
your application for margin information. For best results, print a small quantity
to make sure the opacity is acceptable.
Duplex (double-sided) printing can be done manually or can be done automatically with the duplex option installed and selected.
Note
Only plain paper, 60–90 g/m2 (16–24 lb bond) can be autoduplexed. See
“Media Specifications” on page 104.
Duplexing envelopes, labels, letterhead, postcards, thick stock, glossy
media or transparencies is not supported.
How do I autoduplex?
You should verify that the duplex option is physically installed on the printer to
successfully duplex (double-sided) the job.
Check your application to determine how to set your margins for duplex
(double-sided) printing.

Install only new toner cartridges in your printer. If a used toner cartridge is installed, the indicator message will not clear and the supplies
status in the Status Monitor will not be updated.
The toner is nontoxic. If you get toner on your skin, wash it off with
cool water and a mild soap. If you get toner on your clothes, lightly
dust them off as best as you can. If some toner remains on your
clothes, use cool, not hot water, to rinse the toner off.
CAUTION
If you get toner in your eyes, wash it out immediately with cool water
and consult a doctor.
Note
Do not use refilled toner cartridges or unapproved toner cartridges. Any
damage to the printer or quality problems caused by a refilled toner
cartridge or an unapproved toner cartridge will void your warranty. No
technical support is provided to recover from these problems.

CAUTION
Read all caution and warning labels carefully, make sure to follow any
instructions contained in them. These labels are located on the inside of
the printer’s covers and the interior of the printer body.
Handle the printer with care to preserve its life. Abuse handling may cause
damage and void your warranty. If dust and paper scraps remain on the
inside or outside of the printer, printer performance and print quality will suffer,
so the printer should be cleaned periodically. Keep the following guidelines in
mind.
WARNING!
Turn off the printer, unplug the power cord, and disconnect all interface
cables before cleaning. Do not spill water or detergent into the printer;
otherwise the printer will be damaged and an electric shock may occur.
CAUTION
The fuser unit is hot. When the right side cover is opened, the
fuser unit temperature drops gradually (one hour wait time).
„ Be careful when cleaning the inside of the printer or removing media misfeeds, as the fuser unit and other internal parts may be very hot.
„ Do not place anything on top of the printer.
„ Use a soft cloth to clean the printer.
„ Never spray cleaning solutions directly on the printer’s surface; the spray
could penetrate through the air vents of the printer and damage the internal circuits.
„ Avoid using abrasive or corrosive solutions or solutions that contain solvents (such as alcohol and benzene) to clean the printer.
„ Always test any cleaning solution (such as mild detergent) on a small
inconspicuous area of your printer to check the solution’s performance.
„ Never use sharp or rough implements, such as wire or plastic cleaning
pads.
„ Always close the printer’s covers gently. Never subject the printer to vibration.

Introduction
Preventing Media Misfeeds
Make sure that...
Media matches the printer specifications.
Media is flat, especially on the leading edge.
The printer is on a hard, flat, level surface.
You store media in a dry location away from moisture and humidity.
You remove transparencies from the output tray immediately after printing to
avoid static buildup.
You always adjust the media guides in the tray after inserting the media (a
guide that is not properly adjusted can cause poor print quality, media misfeeds, and printer damage).
You load the media printing-side up in the tray (many manufacturers place an
arrow on the end of the wrapper to indicate the printing side).
Avoid...
Media that is folded, wrinkled, or excessively curled.
Double feeding (remove the media and fan the sheets—they may be sticking
together).
Fanning transparencies since this causes static.
Loading more than one type/size/weight of media in a tray at the same time.
Overfilling the trays.
Allowing the output tray to overfill (the output tray has a 250-sheet capacity—
misfeeding may occur if you allow more than 250 sheets of media to accumulate at one time).
Allowing the output tray to fill with more than a few transparencies.

Downloaded From ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
Clearing Media Misfeeds
To avoid damage, always remove misfed media gently, without tearing it. Any
piece of media left in the printer, whether large or small, can obstruct the
media path and cause further misfeeds. Do not reload media that has misfed.
Note
The image is not fixed on the media before the fusing process. If you
touch the printed surface, the toner may stick to your hands, so be
careful not to touch the printed face when removing the misfed media.
Make sure not to spill any toner inside the printer.
CAUTION
Unfused toner can dirty your hands, clothes, or anything else it gets on.
If you accidentally get toner on your clothes, lightly dust them off as
best as you can. If some toner remains on your clothes, use cool, not
hot water, to rinse the toner off. If toner gets on your skin, wash it off
with cool water and a mild soap.
CAUTION
If you get toner in your eyes, wash it out immediately with cool water
and consult a doctor.
If, after clearing the media misfeed, the misfeed message in the control panel
window persists, open and close the printer’s covers. This should clear the
misfeed message.

Antistatic Protection
Note
It’s very important to protect the printer controller board from
electrostatic damage while performing any task involving the controller
board.
Turn off all power switches first. If an antistatic wrist strap is provided in
your printer option kit, attach one end of it to your wrist and the other
end to the bare metal chassis on the back of your printer. Never attach
the wrist strap to any piece of equipment with an electrical current
present. Plastic, rubber, wood, painted metal surfaces, and telephones
are not acceptable grounding points.
If you don’t have an antistatic wrist strap, discharge your body’s static
electric charge by touching a grounded surface before you handle any
printer boards or components. Also avoid walking around after
grounding yourself.

Introduction
Dual In-Line Memory Module (DIMM)
"
You may need additional memory (DIMM) for complex graphics and
for duplex (double-sided) printing.
Dual in-line memory module (or DIMM) is compact circuit board with surface-mount memory chips.
The printer, which has two memory slots, has a 256 MB memory module
already installed in one of the slots. By using both slots, the memory can be
expanded to a maximum of 1024 MB (512 MB + 512 MB).
Installing a DIMM
Note
It’s very important to protect the printer controller board and any
associated circuit boards from electrostatic damage. Before performing
this procedure, review the antistatic caution on page 232. In addition,
always handle circuit boards by the edges only.

The values shown for the toner cartridge and waste toner bottle indicate the number of pages for simplex printing using A4/Letter-size
media with 5% coverage.
The actual life may differ (be shorter) depending on the printing conditions (coverage, paper size, etc.), differences in the printing method,
such as continuous printing or intermittent printing (when print jobs of
one page are often printed), or the type of paper used, for example,
thick paper. In addition, the life will be affected by the temperature and
humidity of the operating environment.
