• If envelopes are severely curled after printing, flatten
them by bending them back against the curl.
• After printing, envelopes sometimes have creases along
their long edges and toner smear on their unprinted
sides. Their print images might also be blurred. When
printing large, black-solid areas, striping can occur as a
result of the envelopes overlapping.

R WARNING:
• Do not incinerate used toner or toner containers. Toner dust might ignite when exposed to an open flame. Dispose of used toner containers
in accordance with local regulations.
• Do not store toner, used toner, or toner containers in a place with an
open flame. The toner might ignite and cause burns of a fire.
R CAUTION:
• Keep toner (used or unused) and toner containers out of reach of children.
• If toner or used toner is inhaled, gargle with plenty of water and move into
a fresh air environment. Consult a doctor if necessary.
• Avoid getting toner on your clothes or skin when removing a paper jam or
replacing toner. If your skin comes into contact with toner, wash the affected
area thoroughly with soap and water.
• If toner gets on your clothing, wash with cold water. Hot water will set the
toner into the fabric and may make removing the stain impossible.
• If toner or used toner gets into your eyes, flush immediately with large
amounts of water. Consult a doctor if necessary.
• If toner or used toner is swallowed, dilute by drinking a large amount of water. Consult a doctor if necessary.
• Be careful not to trap your fingers when opening or closing the top cover.
Important
❒ Store print cartridges in a cool dark place.
❒ Actual printable numbers vary depending on image volume and density,
number of pages printed at a time, paper type and size, and environmental
conditions such as temperature and humidity. Toner quality degrades over
time. Early replacement of the print cartridge might be necessary. Therefore,
we recommend you always keep a new print cartridge ready.

Cautions to Take When Cleaning
R WARNING:
• Do not attempt any maintenance or troubleshooting other than that
mentioned in this manual. This machine contains a laser beam generator and direct exposure to laser beams can cause permanent eye
damage.
R CAUTION:
• The inside of this printer becomes very hot. Do not touch parts labelled “v”
(indicating a hot surface).
Clean the printer periodically to maintain fine printing.
Dry wipe the exterior with a soft cloth. If dry wiping is not enough, wipe with a
soft, wet cloth that is wrung out well. If you still cannot remove the stain or
grime, use a neutral detergent, and then wipe over with a well-wrung wet cloth,
dry wipe, and let it dry.
Important
❒ To avoid deformation, discoloration, or cracking, do not use volatile chemicals, such as benzine and thinner, or spray insecticide on the printer.
❒ If there is dust or grime inside the printer, wipe with a clean, dry cloth.
❒ You must disconnect the plug from the wall outlet at least once a year. Clean
away any dust and grime from the plug and outlet before reconnecting. Accumulated dust and grime pose a fire hazard.

If a paper jam occurs, the Alert indicator on the control panel flashes and one of
the following messages appears on the control panel:
“Remove Misfeed Internal Path”
“Remove Misfeed Tray 1”
“Remove Misfeed Tray 2”
“Paper Misfeed Duplex Unit”
“Remove Misfeed Paper Exit”
Check the location and remove the jammed paper.
R CAUTION:
• The inside of this printer becomes very hot. Do not touch the parts labelled
“v” (indicating a hot surface).
• The fusing section of this machine might be very hot. Caution should be taken when removing misfed paper.
Important
❒ Misfed paper may be covered in toner. Be careful not to get toner on your
hands or clothes.
❒ Toner on prints made after removing misfed paper may be loose (inadequately fused). Make a few test prints until smudges no longer appear.
❒ Do not forcefully remove misfed paper, it will tear. Torn pieces remaining inside the printer will cause further misfeeds and possibly damage the printer.
❒ Paper jams can cause pages to be lost. Check your print job for missing pages
and reprint any pages that did not print out.

Appendix
Cautions to Take When Using in a Network
Using DHCP
You can use this printer in a DHCP environment.
• Supported DHCP servers are those which are included with Windows 2000
Server, and Windows Server 2003/2003 R2/2008.
• DHCP relay-agent is not supported. If you use DHCP relay-agent on a network via ISDN, it will result in increased line charges. This is because your
computer connects to the ISDN line whenever a packet is transferred from the
printer.
• If there is more than one DHCP server, use the same setting for all servers.
The printer operates using data from the DHCP server that responds first.
Using AutoNet
If the printer IPv4 address is not assigned by a DHCP server automatically, a
temporary IPv4 address starting with 169.254, which is not used on the network,
can be automatically selected by the printer.
If an AutoNet address is set as the printer's IP address, it changes every time you
turn on the printer. Configure the TCP/IP settings according to your network
environment.
You must change this setting to “on” to use AutoNet.
Note
❒ The IP address assigned by the DHCP server is given priority over that selected by AutoNet.
❒ You can confirm the current IPv4 address on the configuration page.
❒ The printer cannot communicate with devices that do not have the AutoNet
function. However, this printer can communicate with Macintosh computers
running Mac OS X 10.2.3. or higher.

Adobe PageMaker, you need to copy PPD files to the PageMaker folder.
PPD files have the ".ppd" extension in the folder
“DRIVERS\PS\XP_VISTA\(Language)\DISK1\” on the CD-ROM.
The third folder “(Language)” may be substituted by an appropriate language
name.
Copy the ".ppd" file to the PageMaker folder.
• For PageMaker 6.0 default installation
The directory is “C:\PM6\RSRC\PPD4”.
• For PageMaker 6.5 default installation

When Using Windows Terminal Service/MetaFrame
Limitations
The following limitations apply to the Windows Terminal Service environment.
These limitations are built in Windows Terminal Service or MetaFrame.
❖ MetaFrame's [Auto-creating client printers]
Using [Auto-creating client printers], you can select a logical printer created by
copying the client's local printer data to the MetaFrame server. We strongly
recommend testing this function in your network environment before using
it for your work.
• The settings for optional equipment will not be stored in the server after
the equipment is disconnected. The settings for optional equipment will be
restored to its defaults each time the client computer logs on to the server.
• When printing a large number of bitmap images or using the server in a
WAN environment over dial-up lines such as ISDN, printing may not be
possible or errors may occur, depending on data transfer rates.
• When using MetaFrame XP 1.0 or higher versions, we recommend making
settings in [Client Printer bandwidth] under [Citrix Management Console] according to the environment.
• If a print error occurs on the MetaFrame XP 1.0 SP1/FR1 and the print job
or a printer created in [Auto-creating client printers] cannot be deleted, we recommend making settings in [Delete unfinished print jobs] in the registry. For
details, see the Readme file provided with MetaFrame.
• If a print error occurs on the MetaFrame XP 1.0 FR2 and the print job or a
printer created in [Auto-creating client printers] cannot be deleted, we recommend making settings in [Delete unfinished print jobs at logout] of Citrix Management Console.
❖ MetaFrame's [Printer driver replication]
Using [Printer driver replication], you can distribute printer drivers across all
servers in a server farm. We strongly recommend testing this function in your
network environment before using it for your work.
• If the printer drivers are not properly copied, install them directly onto
each server.
