Guidelines for selecting and storing print media
Guidelines for special print media
When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other print media, keep
these guidelines in mind:
Type
• Always use print media that conform with the specifications listed on
the next column.
Envelopes
• Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper can cause
paper jams and poor print quality.
• For the best print quality, use only high quality copier grade paper
specifically recommended for use in laser printers.
• Avoid using the following print media types:
- Paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or a texture that is too
smooth or too rough
- Erasable bond paper
- Multi-paged paper
- Synthetic paper and thermally reactive paper
- Carbonless paper and Tracing paper.
• Use of these types of paper could result in paper jams, chemical
smells, and damage to your printer.
• Store print media in its ream wrapper until you are ready to use it.
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 it away from moisture or other conditions that can
cause it to wrinkle or curl.
• Store unused print media at temperatures between 15o C and 30o C
(59o F to 86o F). The relative humidity should be between 10% and
70%.
• Store unused print media in a moisture-proof wrap, such as a plastic
container or bag, to prevent dust and moisture from contaminating
your paper.
• Load special print media types one sheet at a time through the
manual tray to avoid paper jams.
Guidelines
• Successful printing on envelopes depends
upon the quality of the envelopes. When
selecting envelopes, consider the following
factors:
- Weight: The weight of the envelope paper
should not exceed 90 g/m2 (24 lb) or jamming
may occur.
- Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes
should lie flat with less than 6 mm
(0.25 inches) curl, and should not contain air.
- Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled,
nicked, or otherwise damaged.
- Temperature: You should use envelopes that
are compatible with the heat and pressure of
the printer during operation.
• Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp
and well creased folds.
• Do not use stamped envelopes.
• Do not use envelopes with clasps, snaps,
windows, coated lining, self-adhesive seals, or
other synthetic materials.
• Do not use damaged or poorly made
envelopes.
• Be sure the seam at both ends of the envelope
extends all the way to the corner of the
envelope.
Acceptable
• To prevent print media, such as transparencies and label sheets, from
sticking together, remove them as they print out.
Caution
Unacceptable
• If you print 20 envelopes in succession, the surface of the top
cover may become hot. Please exercise caution.
• Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with
more than one flap that folds over to seal must
use adhesives compatible with the printer’s
fusing temperature for 0.1 second. Check your
machine’s specification to view the fusing
temperature, see page 11.1. The extra flaps
and strips might cause wrinkling, creasing, or
jams, and may even damage the fuser.
• For the best print quality, position margins no
closer than 15 mm (0.6 inches) from the edges
of the envelope.
• Avoid printing over the area where the
envelope’s seams meet.
5.3
Downloaded from www.Manualslib.com manuals search engine
<Loading print media>
Type
Guidelines
Transparencies
• To avoid damaging the printer, use only
transparencies designed for use in laser
printers.
• Transparencies used in the printer must be able
to withstand the machine’s fusing temperature.
Check your machine’s specification to view the
fusing temperature, see page 11.1.
• Place them on a flat surface after removing
them from the printer.
• Do not leave them in the paper tray for long
periods of time. Dust and dirt may accumulate
on them, resulting in spotty printing.
• To avoid smudging caused by fingerprints,
handle them carefully.
• To avoid fading, do not expose printed
transparencies to prolonged sunlight.
• Ensure that transparencies are not wrinkled,
curled, or have any torn edges.
Labels
• To avoid damaging the printer, use only labels
designed for use in laser printers.
• When selecting labels, consider the following
factors:
- Adhesives: The adhesive material should be
stable at 180° C (356° F), the printer’s fusing
temperature.
- Arrangement: Only use labels with no
exposed backing between them. Labels can
peel off sheets that have spaces between the
labels, causing serious jams.
- Curl: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with
no more than 13 mm (5 inches) of curl in any
direction.
- Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles,
bubbles, or other indications of separation.
• Make sure that there is no exposed adhesive
material between 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 run a sheet of labels through the printer
more than once. The adhesive backing is
designed for only a single pass through the
printer.
• Do not use labels that are separating from the
backing sheet or are wrinkled, bubbled, or
otherwise damaged.
Card stock or
custom-sized
materials
Type
Preprinted
paper
• Letterhead must be printed with heat-resistant
ink that will not melt, vaporize, or release
hazardous emissions when subjected to the
printer’s fusing temperature for 0.1 second.
Check your machine’s specification to view the
fusing temperature, see page 11.1.
• Letterhead ink must be non-flammable and
should not adversely affect printer rollers.
• Forms and letterhead should be sealed in a
moisture-proof wrapping to prevent changes
during storage.
• Before you load preprinted paper, such as
forms and letterhead, verify that the ink on the
paper is dry. During the fusing process, wet ink
can come off preprinted paper, reducing print
quality.
Loading paper
Load the print media you use for the majority of your print jobs in the tray
1. The tray 1 can hold a maximum of 250 sheets of 20 lb plain paper.
You can purchase an optional tray (tray 2) and attach it below the
standard tray to load an additional 250 sheets of paper. For order
information for an optional tray, see 7.1.
The paper level indicator on the front of the tray 1 and the optional tray
2 shows the amount of paper currently left in the tray. When the tray is
empty, the indicator of the bar is completely lowered.
Full ▲
• Do not print on print media smaller than 76 mm
(3 inches) wide or 127 mm (5 inches) long.
• In the software application, set margins at least
6.4 mm (0.25 inches) away from the edges of
the material.

Cleaning the inside of the printer
This chapter provides information for maintaining your printer and the
toner cartridge.
1
Turn the printer off and unplug the power cord. Wait for the printer
to cool down.

Maintenance parts
Cleaning the printer
During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles can
accumulate inside the printer. This buildup can cause print quality
problems, such as toner specks or smearing.
Caution
• Cleaning the cabinet of the printer with cleaning materials
containing large amounts of alcohol, solvents, or other strong
substances can discolor or crack the cabinet.
• If your machine or its around is contaminated with toner, we
recommend you to use cloth or tissue dampened with water to
clean it. If you use a vacuum cleaner, toner blows in the air and
might be harmful for you.
Caution
• 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 necessary.
• Do not touch the green surface underside of the toner
cartridge. Use the handle on the cartridge to avoid touching
this area.
Cleaning the outside of the printer
3
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 or into the printer.
With a dry lint-free cloth, wipe away any dust and spilled toner from
the toner cartridge area and the toner cartridge cavity.
Caution
• While cleaning the inside of the printer, be careful not to reach
too far into the printer. The fuser area may be hot.

Gently swab the long strip of glass (LSU) inside the top of the
cartridge and check for dirt or dust.
Maintaining the toner cartridge
Toner cartridge storage
To get the most 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 cartridge 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.
Expected cartridge life
The life of the toner cartridge depends on the amount of toner that print
jobs require. The actual number may also be different depending on the
print density of the pages you print on, and the number of pages may be
affected by operating environment, printing interval, media type, and
media size. If you print a lot of graphics, you may need to change the
cartridge more often.
Note
• The long strip of glass is hard to locate.
5
Hold the toner cartridge by the handle and slowly insert the
cartridge into the opening in the printer.
Tabs on the sides of the cartridge and corresponding grooves
within the printer will guide the cartridge into the correct position
until it locks into place completely.
Redistributing toner cartridge
When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life span:
• White streaks and light printing occur.
• The Smart Panel program window appears on the computer.
• The Error LED blinks red.
If this happens, you can temporarily reestablish print quality by
redistributing the remaining toner in the cartridge. In some cases, white
streaks or light printing will still occur even after you have redistributed
the toner.

Suggested solutions
Dirt inside of the printer or improper paper loading may reduce print
quality. See the table below to troubleshoot problems.
If necessary, replace the toner
cartridge. See page 8.3.
Condition
Suggested solutions
Light or faded
print
If a vertical white streak or faded area appears
on the page:
• The toner supply is low. You may be able to
temporarily extend the toner cartridge life. See
page 8.2. If this does not improve print quality,
install a new toner cartridge.
• The paper may not meet paper specifications
(for example, the paper is too moist or too
rough). See page 5.3.
• If the entire page is light, the print resolution
setting is too light or toner save mode is on.
Adjust the print resolution and toner save
mode in the printer properties. See the
Software Section.
• A combination of faded or smeared defects
may indicate that the printer needs cleaning.
See page 8.1.
• The surface of LSU may be dirty. Clean the
LSU. See page 8.2.
Toner spots
• The paper may not meet specifications (for
example, the paper is too moist or too rough).
See page 5.3.
• The transfer roller or paper path may be dirty.
See page 8.1.
Dropouts
If generally rounded, faded areas occur
randomly on the page:
• A single sheet of paper may be defective. Try
reprinting the job.
• The moisture content of the paper is uneven
or the paper has moist spots on its surface.
Try a different brand of paper. See page 5.3.
• The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing
processes can cause some areas to reject
toner. Try a different kind or brand of paper.
• The toner cartridge may be defective. See
“Vertical repetitive defects” on the next
column.
• If these steps do not correct the problems,
contact a service representative.

Condition
If black vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The drum inside the toner cartridge has
probably been scratched. Install a new toner
cartridge. See page 8.3.
If white vertical streaks appear on the page:
Background
scatter
If the amount of background shading becomes
unacceptable, the procedures below may fix the
problem.
• Change to lighter weight pages. See page 5.3.
• Check the printer’s environment; low humidity
(lower than 20% RH) or high humidity (higher
than 80% RH) conditions can increase the
amount of background shading.
• Remove the old toner cartridge and install a
new one. See page 8.3.
Toner smear
Vertical
repetitive
defects
Background scatter results from bits of toner
distributed on the printed page.
• The paper may be too damp. Try printing with
a different batch of paper. Do not open
packages of paper until necessary so that the
paper does not absorb too much moisture.
• If background scatter occurs on an envelope,
change the printing layout to avoid printing
over areas that have overlapping seams on
the reverse side. Printing on seams can cause
problems.
• If background scatter covers the entire
surface area of a printed page, adjust the print
resolution through your software application or
via the printer properties window.
• The surface of the LSU part inside the printer
may be dirty. Clean the LSU. See page 8.2.
Gray
background
Suggested solutions
Misformed
characters
• If characters are improperly formed and
producing hollowed images, the paper stock
may be too slick. Try a different paper. See
page 5.3.
Page skew
• Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
• Check the paper type and quality. See page
5.2.
• Ensure that the paper is loaded correctly and
the adjustable guides are not too tight or too
loose against the paper stack.
Curl or wave
• Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
• Check the paper type and quality. Both high
temperature and humidity can cause paper
curl. See page 5.2.
• Turn over the stack of paper in the tray. Also
try rotating the paper 180° in the tray.
• Clean the inside of the printer. See page 8.1.
• Check the paper type and quality. See page
5.2.
• Remove the toner cartridge and install a new
one. See page 8.3.
If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of
the page at even intervals:
• The toner cartridge may be damaged. If a
repetitive mark occurs on the page, install a
new toner cartridge. See page 8.3.
• Parts of the printer may have toner on them. If
the defects occur on the back of the page, the
problem will likely correct itself after a few
more pages.
• The fusing assembly may be damaged.

• Install the PostScript driver;
to installing the PS printer
driver, see the Software
Section.
• If problem consists, contact a

Suggested solutions
• Check if the printer driver is installed in your
system. Open Unified Driver Configurator
and switch to the Printers tab in Printers
configuration window to look at the list of
available printers. Make sure that your
machine is displayed on the list. If not,
please, invoke Add new printer wizard to set
up your device.
• Check if the printer is started. Open Printers
configuration and select your machine on
the printers list. Look at the description in
the Selected printer pane. If its status
contains “(stopped)” string, please, press
the Start button. After that normal operation
of the printer should be restored. The
"stopped" status might be activated when
some problems in printing occurred.
• Check if your application has special print
option such as “-oraw”. If “-oraw” is
specified in the command line parameter
then remove it to print properly. For Gimp
front-end, select “print” -> “Setup printer”
and edit command line parameter in the
command item.
I encounter error
“Unable to open
mfp port device
file!” when printing
a document.
Please avoid changing print job parameters
(via LPR GUI, for example) while a print job is
in progress. Known versions of CUPS server
break the print job whenever print options are
changed and then try to restart the job from
the beginning. Since Unified Linux Driver
locks mfp port while printing, the abrupt
termination of the driver keeps the port locked
and therefore unavailable for subsequent print
jobs. If this situation occurred, please, try to
release the mfp port.
When printing a
document over the
network in SuSE
9.2, the printer
does not print.
The CUPS (Common Unix Printing System)
version distributed with SuSE Linux 9.2
(cups-1.1.21) has a problem with ipp
(Internet Printing Protocol) printing. Use the
socket printing instead of ipp or install later
version of CUPS (cups-1.1.22 or higher).
<Troubleshooting>
Common Macintosh problems
Condition
Suggested solutions
The printer does not
print PDF file correctly.
Some parts of graphics,
text, or illustrations are
missing.
Incompatibility between the PDF file and
the Acrobat products:
Printing the PDF file as an image may
solve this problem. Turn on Print As
Image from the Acrobat printing options.
Note: It will take longer to print when you
print a PDF file as an image.
The document has
printed, but the print job
has not disappeared
from the spooler in Mac
OS 10.3.2.
Update your Mac OS to OS 10.3.3 or
higher.
Some letters are not
displayed normally
during the cover sheet
printing.
This problem is caused because Mac OS
cannot find the font during the cover
page printing.
Alphanumeric characters, in the Billing
Info field, are only allowed for printing on
the cover page. Other characters will be
broken on the printout.

Open the control board cover.
3
Take out a new memory module from the plastic bag.
4
Holding the memory module by the edges, align the memory
module on the slot at about a 30-degree tilt. Make sure that the
notches of the module and the grooves on the slot fit each other.
Your machine is a full-featured model that has been optimized to meet
most of your printing needs. Recognizing that each user may have
different requirements, however, Samsung makes several accessories
available to enhance your machine’s capabilities.
This chapter includes:

Precautions to take when installing accessories
•
Installing a memory module
Precautions to take when installing accessories
Disconnect the power cord
Never remove the control board cover while the power is turned on.
To avoid the possibility of an electrical shock, always disconnect the
power cord when installing or removing ANY internal or external
accessories.
Discharge static electricity
The control board and internal accessories (network interface card or
memory module) are sensitive to static electricity. Before installing or
removing any internal accessories, discharge static electricity from your
body by touching something metal, such as the metal back plate on any
device plugged into a grounded power source. If you walk around before
finishing the installation, repeat this procedure to discharge any static
electricity again.
Installing a memory module
Note
The notches and grooves illustrated above may not match
those on an actual memory module and its slot.
Your machine has a dual in-line memory module (DIMM). Use this
memory module slot to install additional memory.
5
When you are expanding the memory capacity, you can add a memory
module to the vacant memory slot. Your machine has 32 MB memory,
and you can add a 128 MB memory module.
Press the memory module into the slot with care until you hear a
'click'.
Order information is provided for optional memory module. (See
"Accessory" on page 7.1.)
1
Turn the machine off and unplug all cables from the machine.
Caution
Do not press the memory module strongly or the module
may be damaged. If the module does not seem to fit into
the slot properly, carefully try the previous procedure again.

Advanced Options
Extras Tab
You can set advanced settings by clicking the Advanced
Options button.
• TrueType Options: This option determines what the driver
tells the printer about how to image the text in your document.
Select the appropriate setting according to the status of your
document.
- Download as Outline: When this option is selected, the
driver will download any TrueType fonts that are used in your
document not already stored (resident) on your printer. If,
after printing a document, you find that the fonts did not print
correctly, choose Download as bit image and resubmit your
print job. The Download as bit image setting is often useful
when printing Adobe. This feature is available only
when you use the PCL printer driver.
- Download as Bitmap: 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.
• Print All Text To Black: When the Print All Text To
Black option is checked, all text in your document prints solid
black, regardless of the color it appears on the screen.
• Print All Text To Darken: When the Print All Text To
Darken option is checked, all text in your document is allowed
to print darker than on a normal document. Some printers do
not support this feature.
You can select output options for your document. See “Printing
a Document” on page 12 for more information about accessing
the printer properties.
Click the Extras tab to access the following feature:
Watermark
You can create a background text image to be printed on each
page of your document. For details, see “Using Watermarks” on
page 21.
Overlay
Overlays are often used to take the place of preprinted forms and
letterhead paper. For details, see “Using Overlays” on page 22.
Output Options
• Print Subset: You can set the sequence in which the pages
print. Select the print order from the drop-down list.
- Normal (1,2,3): Your printer prints all pages from the first
page to the last page.
- Reverse All Pages (3,2,1): Your printer prints all pages
from the last page to the first page.
- Print Odd Pages: Your printer prints only the odd numbered
pages of the document.
- Print Even Pages: Your printer prints only the even
numbered pages of the document.
• Use Printer Fonts: When Use Printer Fonts is checked, the
printer uses the fonts that are stored in its memory (resident
fonts) to print your document, rather than downloading the
fonts used in your document. Because downloading fonts takes
time, selecting this option can speed up your printing time.
When using Printer fonts, the printer will try to match the fonts
used in your document to those stored in its memory. If,
however, you use fonts in your document that are very different
from those resident in the printer, your printed output will
appear very different from what it looks like on the screen.
This feature is available only when you use the PCL
printer driver.

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.

odd pages, the last page of the first copy and the first
page of the next copy will be printed on the front and
back of one sheet. In case of "Uncollated copy", the
same page will be printed on the front and back of one
sheet. Therefore, if you need multiple copies of a
document and you want those copies on both sides of
the paper, you must print them one at a time, as
separate print jobs.
