Frequently Asked Questions About USB
Q
What is USB?
A
Universal Serial Bus (USB) makes it easy to connect devices to
your computer without having to open the PC. USB uses a
standard port and plug combination for connecting devices like
printers, modems, scanners, and digital cameras. It also offers
the benefit of being able to add, remove, and move devices.
Because USB is a relatively new technology, we recommended
using a parallel printing connection. However, USB is an option to
customers who want to print from Windows 98/Me/2000/XP
across the USB cable. If your computer’s USB port is enabled and
properly setup, you can connect your printer via a USB cable.
Q
How can I determine if my computer’s USB port is enabled?
A
1 In Windows 98/Me, select Start ➝ Settings ➝ Control Panel.
2 Double-click the System icon.
3 Click the Device Manager tab.
4 Click the plus (+) icon before the Universal Serial Bus
Controller item.
If you see a USB host controller and a USB root hub listed, then
the USB is properly enabled. If you have multiple hubs on the
USB chain, try connecting your printer to a different hub or to
another USB device. Also, insure the cable connections are firm.
(USB hubs are hardware devices into which you can plug multiple
USB cables.)
If you do not see these devices listed, refer to your computer’s
documentation or contact the manufacturer for more information
on enabling and setting up the USB. Remember, you can also use
a parallel cable to connect your printer’s parallel port to your
computer. (If you decide to switch to a parallel cable connection,
you may need to remove and reinstall the printer software. )
2.18 SETTING UP YOUR PRINTER
Installing USB driver in Windows
Q
Can other users on my USB chain print to my ML-1430 Series
printer on the USB chain?
A
Yes. Windows 98/Me/2000/XP allows you to “share” your printer
using software settings on your computer. After others on the USB
chain have installed the printer software for your specific printer,
they can print to your shared printer.
Q
After I install my printer, why isn’t my ML-1430 Series printer
assigned to an LPT printer port in the Print dialog box of my
software application?
A
USB uses a different naming convention for USB devices. After the
printer has been installed, you see SSUSB:(your printer name)
instead of LPT.
Q
How can I increase printing speed and quality?
A
When operated on a USB chain, your printer may print slower if
other USB devices are being used while you’re printing. For
optimal print performance, avoid using other devices in the USB
chain while printing.

4.2 PRINT MEDIA
Choosing Paper and Other Media
Paper Guidelines
When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other special
media, 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 multiply forms.
• Use only high-quality, copier grade paper.
• Do not use paper that has 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 overload the tray during printing.
• Avoid paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or
texture that is too smooth or rough.
• Colored 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 colored 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 fusing
temperature.
• Store paper in its ream wrapper until ready for 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 wrinkle or curl.
PRINT MEDIA
4.3
Selecting the Output Location
The printer has two output locations: the face-up output slot and the face-down output
tray. You can select the output location by changing the position of the output lever on the
front of the printer. To use the face-down output tray, be sure the output lever is in upper
(normal) position. To use the face-up output slot, push the output lever down.
• If paper coming out of the face-down output tray has problems, such as excessive curl, try
printing to the face-up output slot.
• To avoid paper jams, do not change the position of the output lever while printing.
Printing to the Face-Down Output Tray
The face-down output tray collects paper
in face-down order. To use, make sure
the output lever is in the upper position.
(If it is not, push it up)
The face-down output tray should be
used for most print jobs and is
recommended when printing large jobs.
Printing to the Face-Up Output Slot
The printer prints to the face-up output
slot if open. Push the output lever down
to open the slot. Paper will come out of
the printer face-up.
Using the face-up output slot might
improve output quality with the following:
•
•
•
•
envelopes
labels
Transparency films
paper heavier than 24 lb (90 g/m2)
4.4 PRINT MEDIA
Loading Paper
Proper paper loading helps prevent paper jams and insures
trouble-free printing. Do not remove paper from the tray(s)
while a job is printing. Doing so may cause a paper jam.
Using the Automatic Input Tray
The automatic input tray holds 150 sheets of paper and five
sheets of special media. See “Media Sizes and Capacities” on
page 4.2 for acceptable paper size and capacities for each
input tray.
Load a stack of paper into the automatic input tray and
print. For details on loading paper in the automatic input
tray, see “Loading Paper” on page 2.4.
Note: Before using the automatic input tray, you must remove the
paper from the manual input tray.
Using the Manual Input Tray
If you select Manual in the Paper Source option, you can manually load paper in the
manual input tray. Manually loading paper can be helpful when you want to check the print
quality after each page is printed.
If you experience a paper jam from the automatic input tray, load one sheet of paper at a
time into the manual input tray.
Note: To avoid a paper jam, use the manual tray with the automatic input tray loaded with paper.
1
Load the print media in the manual
input tray with the print side up.
Adjust the paper guide against the stack
of print media without bending the
stack.

• Only use labels recommended for laser printers.
• Verify that the labels’ adhesive material can tolerate a fusing temperature of 200°C
(392°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, 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.

not let the printed label sheets stack up
as they are printed out.
4.10 PRINT MEDIA
Printing on Transparencies
Guidelines
• Only use transparencies recommended for use in laser printers.
• Insure 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

Notes:
• 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.
PRINT MEDIA 4.11
Printing on Preprinted Paper
Guidelines
• 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 of 400°F
(205°C) for 0.1 second.
• Ink on letterhead must be non-flammable and should not adversely affect any printer
rollers.
• Forms and letterhead should be sealed in moisture-proof wrapping to prevent changes
during storage.
• Before loading 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.
Load letterhead into the input tray
with the design face up, bottom
edge toward the printer.
Adjust the guide to fit the width of the

Using Page Overlay
What is an Overlay?
Dear ABC
An overlay is text and/or images stored in the computer 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

6 Maintaining
Your Printer
This chapter provides suggestions for maintaining the toner
cartridge and printer.
Topics included in this chapter are:
◆ Maintaining the Toner Cartridge
◆ Cleaning the Printer
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 toner cartridges. 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 minute.
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 2,500 pages. (The
original toner cartridge supplied with the printer lasts an average
of 1,000 pages.)
Recycling toner
cartridge
After installing a new toner cartridge (see page 2.2), follow the
instructions included in the toner cartridge box to recycle the old
cartridge.
Saving toner
To save toner, press the Toner Save button on the printer
control panel. The button will be lit. You can also enable the
Toner Save Mode in the printer properties. Refer to “Using
Toner Save Mode” on page 5.6. Selecting this option will extend
the life of the toner cartridge and reduce your cost per page, but
will reduce print quality.
MAINTAINING YOUR PRINTER
6.1
Toner Cartridge
Redistributing Toner
When toner is low, faded or light areas may appear on a printed page. You may be able to
temporarily improve 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 at both sides and
pull it toward you to open.
2
Remove the toner cartridge from the
printer.
CAUTION:
• 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.
3
Gently shake the toner cartridge from
side to side five or six times to
redistribute the toner.
Note: If the toner gets on your clothing,
wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash
clothing in cold water. Hot water sets
toner into fabric.
6.2 MAINTAINING YOUR PRINTER
Toner Cartridge
4
Reinsert the toner cartridge into the
printer. Insure the toner cartridge snaps
into place.
5
Firmly close the cover.
If the print remains light
Remove the old cartridge and install a
new toner cartridge. See “Install the
Toner Cartridge” on page 2.2.
MAINTAINING YOUR PRINTER
6.3
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.
Notes:
• Do not use ammonia-based cleaners or volatile solvents such as thinner on or around the printer.
These can damage the printer.
• While cleaning the inside of the printer, be careful not to touch the transfer roller (located
underneath the toner cartridge ). The oil from your fingers can cause print quality problems.
Cleaning the Outside
Wipe the outside surface of the printer with a soft, clean, lintfree cloth.
Cleaning the Inside
During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles
can accumulate inside the printer. This buildup can cause print
quality problems such as toner specs or smearing. Cleaning the
inside of the printer will eliminate or reduce these problems.
Cleaning inside the
printer
1 Turn the printer off and unplug the power cord, then wait for
the printer to cool.
2 Open the front cover and remove the toner cartridge.
Note: To prevent damage
to the toner cartridge, do
not expose it to light for
more than a few minute.
Cover it with a piece of
paper, if necessary. Also,
do not touch the black
transfer roller inside the
printer.
6.4 MAINTAINING YOUR PRINTER
3 With a dry, lint-free cloth, wipe away any dust and spilled toner
from the toner cartridge area and the toner cartridge cavity.
Cleaning the Printer
4 Reinsert the toner cartridge and close the cover.
5 Plug in the power cord, and turn the printer on.
Printing a cleaning
sheet
If you are experiencing blurred, faded or smeared printouts.
Printing a cleaning sheet cleans the drum inside the toner
cartridge. This process will produce a page with toner debris,
which should be discarded.
1 Insure the printer is turned on and in the ready mode with
paper loaded in the automatic input tray.
2 Press and hold down Demo on the control panel for about ten
seconds until all control panel lights remain lit, then release.

PROBLEM SOLVING 7.21
Common Linux Problems
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
I can’t change settings in
the configuration tool.
You need to have administrator privileges to be able to affect
global settings.
I am using the KDE
desktop but the
configuration tool and
SLPR won’t start.
Maybe you do not have the GTK libraries installed. These
usually come with most Linux distributions, but you may have
to install them manually. Refer to your distribution’s
installation manual for more details about installing additional
packages.
I just installed this
package but can’t find
entries in the KDE/Gnome
menus.
Some versions of the KDE or GNOME desktop environments
may require that you restart your session for the changes to
take effect.
I get a “Some options are
not selected” error
message while editing the
printer settings.
Some printers have conflicting settings, meaning that some
settings for two options can’t be selected at the same time.
When you change a setting and the Printer Package detects
such a conflict, the conflicting option is changed to a “No
Choice” value, and you have to choose an option that does not
conflict before being able to submit the changes.
I can’t make a printer the
system default.
In some conditions, it may not be possible to change the
default queue. This happens with some variants of LPD or
LPRng. LPD systems identify the default queue as the one
named “lp”. Thus if there is already a queue by this name, and
if it doesn’t have any alias, then you won’t be able to change
the default. To work around this, you can either delete the
queue, or rename it by manually editing the /etc/printcap
file.
The N-up setting does not
work correctly for some
of my documents.
The N-up feature is achieved through post-processing of the
PostScript data that is being sent to the printing system.
However, such post-processing can only be adequately
achieved if the PostScript data conforms to the Adobe
Document Structing Conventions. Problems may arise when
using N-up and other features relying on post-processing if the
document being printed isn’t compliant.
7.22 PROBLEM SOLVING
Common Linux Problems
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
I am using BSD lpr
(Slackware, Debian, older
distributions) and some
options chosen in SLPR
don’t seem to take effect.
Legacy BSD lpr systems have a hard limitation on the length of
the option string that can be passed to the printing system. As
such, if you selected a number of different options, the length
of the options may be exceeded and some of your choices
won’t be passed to the programs responsible for implementing
them. Try to select less options that deviate from the defaults,
to save on memory usage.
I am trying to print a
document in Landscape
mode, but it prints
rotated and cropped.
Most Unix applications that offer a Landscape orientation
option in their printing options will generate correct PostScript
code that should be printed as is. In that case, you need to
make sure that you leave the SLPR option to its default
Portrait setting, to avoid unwanted rotations of the page that
would result in a cropped output.
Some pages come out all
white (noting is printed),
and I am using CUPS.
If the data being sent is in Encapsulated PostScript (EPS)
format, some earlier versions of CUPS (1.1.10 and before)
have a bug preventing them from being processed correctly.
When going through SLPR to print, the Printer Package will
work around this issue by converting the data to regular
PostScript. However, if your application by passes SLPR and
feeds EPS data to CUPS, the document may not print correctly.
I can’t print to a SMB
(Windows) printer.
To be able to configure and use SMB-shared printers (such as
printers shared on a Windows machine), you need to have a
correct installation of the SAMBA package that enables that
feature. The “smbclient” command should be available and
usable on your system.
My application seems to
be frozen while SLPR is
running.
Most Unix applications will expect a command like the regular
“lpr” command to be non-interactive and thus return
immediately. Since SLPR is waiting for user input before
passing the job on to the print spooler, very often the
application will wait for the process to return, and thus will
appear to be frozen (its windows won’t refresh). This is normal
and the application should resume functioning correctly after
the user exits SLPR.
PROBLEM SOLVING 7.23
Common Linux Problems
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
How do I specify the IP
address of my SMB
server?
It can be specified in the “Add Printer” dialog of the
configuration tool, if you don’t use the CUPS printing system.
Unfortunately, CUPS currently doesn’t allow to specify the IP
address of SMB printers, so you will have to be able to browse
the resource with Samba in order to be able to print.
Some documents come
out as white pages when
printing.
Some versions of CUPS, especially those shipped with
Mandrake Linux before the 8.1 release, have some known bugs
when processing the PostScript output from some applications.
Try upgrading to the latest version of CUPS (at least 1.1.9).
Some RPM packages for most popular distributions are
provided as a convenience with this Linux Printing Package.
I have CUPS and some
options (such as N-up)
seem to be always
enabled even though I
don’t pick them in SLPR.
There may be some local options defined in your
~/.lpoptions file, which is manipulated by the lpoptions
command. These options will always be used if not overriden
by SLPR settings. To get rid of all options for a printer, run the
following command, replacing “printer” with the name of the
queue: lpoptions -x printer
I configured a printer to
print to a file, but I get
“Permission denied”
errors.
Most printing systems will not run as the super-user but as a
special user (usually “lp”). Therefore, make sure that the file
you have chosen to print to is accessible to the user owning
the spooler daemon.
On my PCL (or SPL)
printer, I sometimes get
error messages printing
instead of my document.
Unfortunately, some Unix applications may generate noncompliant PostScript output that may not be supported by
Ghostscript, or even the printer itself in PostScript mode. You
can try to capture the output to a file and view the results with
Ghostscript (gv or ghostview will allow you to do so
interactively) and see if you get error messages. However,
since the application is at probably fault, contact your software
vendor to inform them of the issue.

APPENDIX A.5
Paper Specifications
Printer and Paper Storage Environment
Paper storage environmental conditions directly affect the feed
operation.
Ideally, the printer and paper storage environment should be
at or near room temperature, and not too dry or humid.
Remember that paper is hygroscopic; it absorbs and loses
moisture rapidly.
Heat works with humidity to damage paper. Heat causes the
moisture in paper to evaporate, while cold causes it to
condense on the sheets. Heating systems and air conditioners
remove most of the humidity from a room. As paper is opened
and used, it loses moisture, causing streaks and smudging.
Humid weather or water coolers can cause the humidity to
increase in a room. As paper is opened and used it absorbs
any excess moisture, causing light print and dropouts. Also, as
paper loses and gains moisture it can become distorted. This
can cause paper jams.
Care should be taken not to purchase more paper than can be
used in a short time (about 3 months). Paper stored for long
periods may experience heat and moisture extremes, which
can cause damage. Planning is important to prevent damage to
large supplies of paper.
Unopened paper in sealed reams can remain stable for several
months before use. Opened packages of paper have more
potential for environment damage, especially if they are not
wrapped with a moisture-proof barrier.
The paper storage environment should be properly maintained
to ensure optimum printer performance. The required condition
is 20° to 24°C (68° to 75°F), with a relative humidity of
45% to 55%. The following guidelines should be considered
when evaluating the paper’s storage environment:
• Paper should be stored at or near room temperature.
• The air should not be too dry or too humid.
• The best way to store an opened ream of paper is to rewrap it
tightly in its moisture-proof wrapping. If the printer
environment is subject to extremes, unwrap only the amount
of paper to be used during the day’s operation to prevent
unwanted moisture changes.
A.6 APPENDIX
Paper Specifications
Envelopes
Envelope construction is critical. Envelope fold lines can vary
considerably, not only between manufacturers, but also within
a box from the same manufacturer. Successful printing on
envelopes depends upon the quality of the envelopes. When
selecting envelopes, consider the following components:
• Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should not exceed
90 g/m2 (24 lbs), otherwise, jamming may occur.
• Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat with
less than 6 mm (0.25 in.) curl.
• Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled, nicked, or
otherwise damaged.
• Temperature: Use envelopes that are compatible with the
heat and pressure of the printer.
• Size: Use only envelopes within the following size ranges.
Minimum
Automatic input
tray
95 X 127mm
(3.8 X 5 in.)
Manual input tray
76 X 127 mm
(3 X 5 in.)
Maximum
216 X 356 mm
(8.5 X 14 in.)
Note: You may experience some paper jams when using any
media with a length of less than 127 mm (5 in.). This may be
caused by paper that has been affected by environmental
conditions. For optimum performance, insure you are storing and
handling the paper correctly. Please refer to “Printer and Paper
Storage Environment” on page A.6.
APPENDIX A.7
Paper Specifications
Envelopes with
Double Side Seams
Double side-seam construction has vertical seams at both ends
of the envelope rather than diagonal seams. This style may be
more likely to wrinkle. Insure the seam extends all the way to
the corner of the envelope as illustrated below.
Correct
Incorrect
Envelopes with
Adhesive Strips or
Flaps
Envelope Margins
Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one
flap that folds over must use adhesive compatible with the heat
and pressure in the printer. The extra flaps and strips may cause
wrinkling, creasing, or even jams and may even damage the
fuser.
The following gives typical address margins for a commercial
#10 or DL envelope.

Notes:
• For best print quality, position margins no closer than 15 mm
(0.6 in.) from the edges of the envelope.
• Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s seams meet.
Envelope Storage
A.8 APPENDIX
Proper storage of envelopes helps contribute to print quality.
Envelopes should be stored flat. If air is trapped in an envelope,
creating an air bubble, then the envelope may wrinkle during
printing. See “Printing on Envelopes” on page 4.7.
Paper Specifications
Labels
CAUTIONS:
• To avoid damaging the printer, use only labels recommended
for laser printers.
• To prevent jams, always use the face-up output slot.
• Never print on the same sheet of labels more than once or print
on a partial sheet of labels.
When selecting labels, consider the quality of each component:
• Adhesive: The adhesive material should be stable at
200 °C (392 °F), the printer’s fusing temperature.
• Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing
between them. Labels can peel off sheets with spaces
between the labels, causing jams.
• Curl: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no more than
13 mm (.5 in.) of curl in any direction.
• Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other
indications of separation.
See “Printing on Labels” on page 4.10.
Transparencies
Transparencies used in the printer must be able to withstand
200 °C (392 °F), the printer’s fusing temperature.
CAUTION: To avoid damaging the printer, use only
transparencies recommended for use in laser printers.
See “Printing on Transparencies” on page 4.11.
