Media and tray
This chapter provides information on how to load print media into your
machine.
2
Selecting print media
You can print on a variety of print media, such as plain paper, envelopes, labels,
and transparencies. Always use print media that meet the guidelines for use
with your machine.
Guidelines for select the print media
Print media that does not meet the guidelines outlined in this user’s guide may
cause the following problems:
Poor print quality
Increased paper jams
Premature wear on the machine.
Properties, such as weight, composition, grain, and moisture content, are
important factors that affect the machine’s performance and the output quality.
When you choose print materials, consider the following:
The type, size, and weight of the print media for your machine are described
in print media specifications (see "Print media specifications" on page 118).
Desired outcome: The print media you choose should be appropriate for
your project.
Brightness: Some print media are whiter than others and produce sharper,
more vibrant images.
Surface smoothness: The smoothness of the print media affects how crisp
the printing looks on the paper.
Some print media may meet all of the guidelines in this user’s guide and
still not produce satisfactory results. This may be the result of the sheets
characteristics, improper handling, unacceptable temperature and
humidity levels, or other variables over which cannot be controlled.
Before purchasing large quantities of print media, ensure that it meets
the requirements specified in this user’s guide.
Using print media that does not meet these specifications may cause
problems or require repairs. Such repairs are not covered by Samsung’s
warranty or service agreements.
The amount of paper put into the tray may differ according to media
type used (see "Print media specifications" on page 118).
Make sure not to use the inkjet photo paper with this machine. It could
cause damage to the machine.
Using flammable print media can cause a fire.
Use designated print media (see "Print media specifications" on page
118).
Media and tray

Loading in manual feeder
The manual feeder can hold special sizes and types of print material, such as postcards, note cards, and envelopes (see "Print media specifications" on page 118).
Tips on using the manual feeder
Load only one type, size and weight of print media at time in the manual feeder.
To prevent paper jams, do not add paper while printing when there is still paper in the manual feeder.
Print media should be loaded face up with the top edge going into the manual feeder first and be placed in the center of the tray.
To ensure printing quality and to prevent paper jams, only load the available paper (see "Print media specifications" on page 118).
Flatten any curl on postcards, envelopes, and labels before loading them into the manual feeder.
When printing on special media, you must follow the loading guidelines (see "Printing on special media" on page 45).
When papers overlap when printing using the manual feeder, open tray and remove the papers then try printing again.
When paper does not feed well while printing, push the paper in manually until it starts feeding automatically.
When the machine is in a power save mode, the machine does not feed paper from the manual feeder. Wake up the machine by pressing the power button before
using the manual feeder.

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.
1 Acceptable
2 Unacceptable
Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one flap that
folds over to seal must use adhesives compatible with the machine’s fusing
temperature for 0.1 second about 170°C (338 °F). The extra flaps and strips
might cause wrinkling, creasing, or jams, and may even damage the fuser
unit.
For the best print quality, position margins no closer than 15 mm from the
edges of the envelope.
Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s seams meet.
Transparency
To avoid damaging the machine, use only transparencies designed for use in
laser printers.
Must withstand the machine’s fusing temperature.
Place them on a flat surface after removing them from the machine.
Do not leave unused transparencies in the paper tray for long. 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.
Media and tray
48
2. Menu Overview and Basic Setup
Do not use transparencies that separate from the backing sheet.
To prevent transparencies from sticking to each other, do not let the printed
sheets stack up as they are being printed out.
Recommended media: Transparency for a color laser printer by Xerox, such
as 3R 91331(A4), 3R 2780 (Letter).
Labels
To avoid damaging the machine, use only labels designed for use in laser
printers.
When selecting labels, consider the following factors:
-Adhesives: Should be stable at your machine’s fusing temperature.
Check your machine’s specifications to view the fusing temperature
(about 170°C (338°F)).
-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: Must lie flat with no more than 13 mm of curl in any direction.
Media and tray
49
2. Menu Overview and Basic Setup
-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 machine
components.
Do not run a sheet of labels through the machine more than once. The
adhesive backing is designed for only a single pass through the machine.
Do not use labels that are separating from the backing sheet or are wrinkled,
bubbled, or otherwise damaged.
Card stock/ Custom-sized paper
In the software application, set the margins to at least 6.4 mm (0.25 inches)
away from the edges of the material.
Media and tray

2. Menu Overview and Basic Setup
Preprinted paper
When loading preprinted paper, the printed side should be facing up with an
uncurled edge at the front. If you experience problems with paper feeding, turn
the paper around. Note that print quality is not guaranteed.
Must be printed with heat-resistant ink that will not melt, vaporize, or
release hazardous emissions when subjected to the machine’s fusing
temperature for 0.1 second (about 170°C (338°F)).
Preprinted paper ink must be non-flammable and should not adversely
affect machine rollers.
Before you load preprinted paper, verify that the ink on the paper is dry.
During the fusing process, wet ink can come off preprinted paper, reducing
print quality.
7
Setting the paper size and type
After loading paper in the paper tray, set the paper size and type using the
control panel buttons.
The paper setting in the machine and driver should match to print without a
paper mismatch error.

74
3. Maintenance
Storing the toner cartridge
Toner cartridges contain components that are sensitive to light, temperature
and humidity. Samsung suggests users follow these recommendations to
ensure optimal performance, highest quality, and longest life from your new
Samsung toner cartridge.
Store the cartridge in the same environment in which the printer will be used.
This should be in controlled temperature and humidity conditions. The toner
cartridge should remain in their original and unopened package until
installation – if original packaging is not available, cover the top opening of the
cartridge with paper and store in a dark cabinet.
Opening the cartridge package prior to use dramatically shortens its useful shelf
and operating life. Do not store on the floor. If the toner cartridge is removed
from the printer, follow the instructions below to store the toner cartridge
properly.
Store the cartridge inside the protective bag from the original package.
Store lying flat (not standing on end) with the same side facing up as if it
were installed in the machine.
Do not store consumables in any of the following conditions:
- Temperature greater than 40°C (104°F).
- Humidity range less than 20% or greater than 80%.
- An environment with extreme changes in humidity or temperature.
- Direct sunlight or room light.
- Dusty places.
- A car for a long period of time.
- An environment where corrosive gases are present.
- An environment with salty air.
1
Handling instructions
Do not touch the surface of the photoconductive drum in the cartridge.
Do not expose the cartridge to unnecessary vibrations or shock.
Never manually rotate the drum, especially in the reverse direction; this can
cause internal damage and toner spillage.
2
Toner cartridge usage
Samsung Electronics does not recommend or approve the use of non-Samsung
brand toner cartridges in your printer including generic, store brand, refilled, or
remanufactured toner cartridges.
Samsung’s printer warranty does not cover damage to the machine caused
by the use of refilled, remanufactured, or non-Samsung brand toner
cartridges.
Storing the toner cartridge

Estimated cartridge life
Estimated cartridge life (the life of the toner cartridge yield) depends on the
amount of toner that print jobs require. The actual print yield may vary
depending on the print density of the pages you print on, operating
environment, percentage of image area, printing interval, media type and/or
media size. For example, if you print a lot of graphics, the consumption of the
toner is higher and you may need to change the cartridge more often.
76
3. Maintenance
Redistributing toner
When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life:
White streaks or light printing occurs and/or density varies from side to side.
The Status LED blinks red.
If this happens, you can temporarily improve 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.
Illustrations on this user’s guide may differ from your machine depending on its options or models. Check your machine type (see "Machine overview" on page
21).
If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash clothing in cold water: hot water sets toner into fabric.
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 area of the toner cartridge. Use the handle on the cartridge to avoid touching this area.
Do not use sharp objects such as a knife or scissors to open the toner cartridge package. They might scratch the drum of the cartridge.

Cleaning the machine
If printing quality problems occur or if you use your machine in a dusty environment, you need to clean your machine regularly to keep it in the best printing
condition and use your machine longer.
Cleaning the cabinet of the machine with cleaning materials containing large amounts of alcohol, solvents, or other strong substances can discolor or distort the
cabinet.
If your machine or the surrounding area is contaminated with toner, we recommend you use a cloth or tissue dampened with water to clean it. If you use a vacuum
cleaner, toner blows in the air and might be harmful to you.
During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles can accumulate inside the machine. This buildup can cause print quality problems, such as toner
specks or smearing. Cleaning the inside of the machine clears and reduces these problems.

Ringer Equivalence Number
The Ringer Equivalence Number and FCC Registration Number for this machine
may be found on the label located on the bottom or rear of the machine. In some
instances you may need to provide these numbers to the telephone company.
The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) is a measure of the electrical load placed
on the telephone line, and is useful for determining whether you have
“overloaded” the line. Installing several s of equipment on the same telephone
line may result in problems making and receiving telephone calls, especially
ringing when your line is called. The sum of all Ringer Equivalence Numbers of
the equipment on your telephone line should be less than five in order to assure
proper service from the telephone company. In some cases, a sum of five may
not be usable on your line. If any of your telephone equipment is not operating
properly, you should immediately remove it from your telephone line, as it may
cause harm to the telephone network.
The equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules and the requirements
adopted by the ACTA. On the rear of this equipment is a label that contains,
among other information, a product identifier in the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX.
If requested, this number must be provided to the telephone company.
FCC Regulations state that changes or modifications to this equipment not
expressly approved by the manufacturer could void the user’s authority to
operate this equipment. In the event that terminal equipment causes harm
to the telephone network, the telephone company should notify the
customer that service may be stopped. However, where prior notice is
impractical, the company may temporarily cease service, providing that
they:
a promptly notify the customer.
b give the customer an opportunity to correct the equipment problem.
c inform the customer of the right to bring a complaint to the Federal
Communication Commission pursuant to procedures set out in FCC
Rules and Regulations Subpart E of Part 68.
You should also know that:
Your machine is not designed to be connected to a digital PBX system.
If you intend to use a computer modem or fax modem on the same phone
line as your machine, you may experience transmission and reception
problems with all the equipment. It is recommended that no other
equipment, except for a regular telephone, share the line with your
machine.
If your area experiences a high incidence of lightning or power surges, we
recommend that you install surge protectors for both the power and the
telephone lines. Surge protectors can be purchased from your dealer or
telephone and electronic specialty stores.

Replacing the Fitted Plug (for UK Only)
Important
The mains lead for this machine is fitted with a standard (BS 1363) 13 amp plug
and has a 13 amp fuse. When you change or examine the fuse, you must re-fit
the correct 13 amp fuse. You then need to replace the fuse cover. If you have lost
the fuse cover, do not use the plug until you have another fuse cover.
Contact the people from you purchased the machine.
The 13 amp plug is the most widely used in the UK and should be suitable.
However, some buildings (mainly old ones) do not have normal 13 amp plug
sockets. You need to buy a suitable plug adaptor. Do not remove the moulded
plug.
If you cut off the moulded plug, get rid of it straight away.
You cannot rewire the plug and you may receive an electric shock if you
plug it into a socket.
Important warning:
If the wires in the mains lead do not match the colors marked in your plug, do
the following:
You must connect the green and yellow wire to the pin marked by the letter “E”
or by the safety ‘Earth symbol’ or colored green and yellow or green.
You must connect the blue wire to the pin which is marked with the letter “N” or
colored black.
You must connect the brown wire to the pin which is marked with the letter “L”
or colored red.
You must have a 13 amp fuse in the plug, adaptor, or at the distribution board.
You must earth this machine.
The wires in the mains lead have the following color code:
Green and Yellow: Earth
Blue: Neutral

Wireless guidance
Low power, Radio LAN devices (radio frequency (RF) wireless communication
devices), operating in the 2.4 GHz/5 GHz Band, may be present (embedded) in
your printer system. The following section is a general overview of
considerations while operating a wireless device.
Additional limitations, cautions, and concerns for specific countries are listed in
the specific country sections (or country group sections). The wireless devices in
your system are only qualified for use in the countries identified by the Radio
Approval Marks on the system rating label. If the country you will be using the
wireless device in, is not listed, contact your local Radio Approval agency for
requirements. Wireless devices are closely regulated and use may not be
allowed.
Wireless devices that may be in your system are only
qualified for use in the European Union or associated
areas if a CE mark is on the system label.
Regulatory information
137
5. Appendix
The power output of the wireless device or devices that may be embedded in
your printer is well below the RF exposure limits as known at this time. Because
the wireless devices (which may be embedded into your printer) emit less
energy than is allowed in radio frequency safety standards and
recommendations, manufacturer believes these devices are safe for use.
Regardless of the power levels, care should be taken to minimize human contact
during normal operation.
As a general guideline, a separation of 20 cm (8 inches) between the wireless
device and the body, for use of a wireless device near the body (this does not
include extremities) is typical. This device should be used more than 20 cm (8
inches) from the body when wireless devices are on and transmitting.
This transmitter must not be collocated or operation in conjunction with any
other antenna or transmitter.
Some circumstances require restrictions on wireless devices. Examples of
common restrictions are listed below:
Radio frequency wireless communication can interfere with
equipment on commercial aircraft. Current aviation regulations
require wireless devices to be turned off while traveling in an airplane.
IEEE 802.11 (also known as wireless Ethernet) and Bluetooth
communication devices are examples of devices that provide wireless
communication.
In environments where the risk of interference to other devices or
services is harmful or perceived as harmful, the option to use a wireless
device may be restricted or eliminated. Airports, Hospitals, and
Oxygen or flammable gas laden atmospheres are limited examples
where use of wireless devices may be restricted or eliminated. When in
environments where you are uncertain of the sanction to use wireless
devices, ask the applicable authority for authorization prior to use or
turning on the wireless device.
Every country has different restrictions on the use of wireless devices.
Since your system is equipped with a wireless device, when traveling
between countries with your system, check with the local Radio
Approval authorities prior to any move or trip for any restrictions on
the use of a wireless device in the destination country.
If your system came equipped with an internal embedded wireless
device, do not operate the wireless device unless all covers and shields
are in place and the system is fully assembled.
Wireless devices are not user serviceable. Do not modify them in any
way. Modification to a wireless device will void the authorization to
use it. Contact manufacturer for service.
Only use drivers approved for the country in which the device will be
used. See the manufacturer System Restoration Kit, or contact
manufacturer Technical Support for additional information.

Getting started
Understanding your network type
Typically, you can only have one connection between your computer and the
machine at a time.
Wireless network name and network password
Wireless networks require higher security, so when an access point is first set up,
a network name (SSID), the type of security used, and a Network Password are
created for the network. Ask your network administrator about this information
before proceeding with the machine installation.
Infrastructure mode
This is an environment generally used for homes and SOHOs
(Small Office/ Home Office). This mode uses an access point to
communicate with the wireless machine.
Ad hoc mode
This mode does not use an access point. The wireless
computer and wireless machine communicate directly.
