Network setup (Dell 1130n only) This chapter gives you step-by-step instructions for setting up the network connected machine and software. This chapter includes:

Network environment

Introducing useful network programs

Using a wired network

Installing network connected machines driver

IPv6 Configuration

Network environment You need to set up the network protocols on the machine to use it as your network machine. The following table shows the network environments supported by the machine:

Item Requirements

Network interface Ethernet 10/100 Base-TX

Network operating system Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003/Server 2008/Vista/7/2008 Server R2

Various Linux OS

Mac OS X 10.3 ~ 10.6

Network protocols TCP/IPv4

DHCP, BOOTP

DNS, WINS, Bonjour, SLP, UPnP

Standard TCP/IP Printing (RAW), LPR, IPP

SNMPv 1/2/3, HTTP, IPSec

TCP/IPv6 (DHCP, DNS, RAW, LPR, SNMPv 1/2/3, HTTP, IPSec

(See IPv6 Configuration.)

Introducing useful network programs There are several programs available to setup the network settings in network environment.

Before using the programs below, set the IP address first.

Embedded Web Service Web server embedded on your network machine, which allows you to:

Configure the network parameters necessary for the machine to connect to various network environments.

Customize machine settings.

(See Using Embedded Web Service (Dell 1130n only).)

SetIP This utility program allows you to select a network interface and manually configure the IP addresses for use with the TCP/IP protocol. (See IP setting using SetIP Program)

TCP/IPv6 is not supported by this program.

Using a wired network You must set up the network protocols on your machine to use it on your network. This chapter will show you how this is accomplished. You can use network after connecting network cable to a corresponding port on your machine.

Printing network configuration report You can print a Network Configuration Report from the machine's control panel that will show the current machines network settings. This will help you to set up a network and troubleshooting problems. To print the report: In ready mode, press and hold the (cancel button) for about 5 seconds. You can find your machines MAC address

and IP address. For example:

MAC Address : 00:15:99:41:A2:78

IP Address : 192.0.0.192

Setting IP address Firstly, you have to set up an IP address for network printing and managements. In most cases a new IP address will be automatically assigned by a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server located on the network. In a few situations the IP address must be set manually. This is called a static IP and is often required in corporate Intranets for security reasons.

DHCP IP assignment: Connect your machine to the network, and wait a few minutes for the DHCP server to assign an IP address to the machine. Then, print the Network Configuration Report as explained above. If the report shows that the IP address has changed, the assignment was successful. You will see the new IP address in the report.

Static IP assignment: Use SetIP program to change the IP address from your computer.

In an office environment, we recommend that you contact a network administrator to set this address for you.

IP setting using SetIP Program This program is for manually setting the network IP address of your machine using its MAC address to communicate with the machine. A MAC address is the hardware serial number of the network interface and can be found in the Network Configuration Report. For using SetIP program, disable the computer firewall before continuing by performing the following:

1. Open Start > All programs > Control Panel.

Media and tray This chapter provides information on how to load print media into your machine. This chapter includes:

Selecting print media

Changing the tray size

Loading paper in the tray

Printing on special media

Using the output support

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 to select the print media Print media that does not meet the guidelines outlined in this users 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 machines 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.)

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 section and still not produce satisfactory results. This may be the result of 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 users guide.

Using print media that does not meet these specifications may cause problems, requiring repairs. Such repairs are not covered by the warranty or service agreements. The amount of paper put into the tray may differ according to media type used. (See Print media specifications.)

3. Guide lock

4. Paper width guide

1. With one hand press and hold the guide lock, and with the other hand, hold the paper length guide and support guide together. Slide the paper length guide and support guide to locate them in the correct paper size slot.

2. Flex or fan the edge of the paper stack to separate the pages before loading papers. Insert the paper into the tray.

3. After inserting paper into the tray, adjust the support guide so that it lightly touches the paper stack.

4. Squeeze the paper width guides and slide them to the desired paper size marked at the bottom of the tray.

Do not push the paper width guide too far causing the media to warp. If you do not adjust the paper width guide, it may cause paper jams.

Do not use a paper with more than 6 mm curl.

Loading paper in the tray Tray 1

1. Pull out the paper tray . And adjust the tray size to the media size you are loading. (See Changing the tray size.)

2. Flex or fan the edge of the paper stack to separate the pages before loading papers.

3. And place paper with the side you want to print facing down.

4. Set the paper type and size for the tray 1. (See Setting the default tray and paper.)

If you experience problems with paper feeding, check whether the paper meets the media specification. (See Print media specifications.)

Manual tray The manual tray can hold special sizes and types of print material, such as postcards, note cards, and envelopes. It is useful for single page printing on letterhead or colored paper.

Tips on using the manual tray If you select Manual Feeder for Source from your software application, you need to press (cancel button)

each time you print a page and load only one type, size and weight of print media at a time in the manual tray.

To prevent paper jams, do not add paper while printing. This also applies to other types of print media.

Print media should be loaded face up with the top edge going into the manual tray first and be placed in the center of the tray.

Always load the specified print media only to avoid paper jams and print quality problems. (See Print media specifications.)

Flatten any curl on postcards, envelopes, and labels before loading them into the manual tray.

1. Load the paper in the manual tray.

Do not force the paper beyond the surface with mark when loading.

When printing the special media, you must follow the loading guideline. (See Printing on special media.) When papers overlap when printing using manual tray, open tray 1 and remove overlapping papers then try printing again. When paper does not feed well while printing, push the paper in manually until it starts feeding automatically.

2. Squeeze the manual tray paper guides and adjust them to the width of the paper. Do not force them too much, or the paper will bent resulting in a paper jam or skew.

3. To print in application, open an application and start the print menu.

4. Open Printing Preferences. (See Opening printing preferences.)

5. Press the Paper tab in Printing Preferences, and select an appropriate paper type.

For example, if you want to use a label, set the paper type to Label.

6. Select Manual Feeder in paper source, then press OK.

Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one flap that folds over to seal must use adhesives compatible with the machines fusing temperature about 170C (338 F) for 0.1 second. 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 from the edges of the envelope.

Avoid printing over the area where the envelopes seams meet.

Transparency To avoid damaging the machine, only use transparencies designed for use in laser printers.

Transparencies used in the machine must be able to withstand machines 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 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.

Do not use transparencies that separates from the backing sheet.

To prevent transparencies from sticking to each other, do not let the printed sheets stack up as they are begin printed out.

Labels To avoid damaging the machine, use only labels designed for use in laser machines.

When selecting labels, consider the following factors:

Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at your machines fusing temperature about 170C (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: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no more than 13 mm 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 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 Postcards, cards and other custom-sized materials can be printed with this machine.

Do not print on media smaller than 76 mm (3.00 inches) wide or 127 mm (5.00 inches) long.

In the software application, set margins at least 6.4 mm (0.25 inches) away from the edges of the material.

If media weight is over 160 g/m2 (43 lb), try printing in the rear cover (face up).

Letterhead/Preprinted paper Single-sided Double-sided

Tray1 Face down Face up

Manual tray Face up Face down

Letterhead/ Preprinted paper must be printed with heat-resistant ink that will not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous emissions when subjected to the machines fusing temperature about 170C (338 F) for 0.1 second.

Letterhead/ Preprinted paper ink must be non-flammable and should not adversely affect machine rollers.

Forms and letterhead should be sealed in a moisture-proof wrapping to prevent changes during storage.

Before you load letterhead/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.

Photo Make sure not to use the inkjet photo paper with this machine. It could cause damage to the machine.

Glossy Load one paper to the manual tray at a time, glossy side facing up.

Recommended media: Glossy paper (Letter) for this machine by HP Brochure Paper (Product: Q6611A) only.

Recommended media: Glossy paper (A4) for this machine by HP Superior Paper 160 glossy (Product: Q6616A).

Using the output support The surface of the output tray may become hot if you print a large number of pages at once. Make sure that you do not touch the surface, and do not allow children near it.

The printed pages stack on the output support, and the output support will help the printed pages to align. The printer sends output to the output tray by default. To use the output tray, make sure that the rear cover is closed.

If you are using A5 paper, fold the output tray. Otherwise, printed pages might be mis-aligned or jammed.

Advanced Options Use the following Graphics options to adjust the print quality for your specific printing needs.

1. To change the print settings from your software application, access Printing Preferences. (See Opening printing preferences.)

2. Click the Graphics tab.

This options you can select may vary depending on your printer model. Refer to the online help for each options information provided from the Printing Preferences.

Font/ Text: Select Darken Text to print texts darker than on a normal document. Use All Text Black to prints solid black, regardless of the color it appears on the screen.

Advanced (Dell 1130n only): You can set advanced settings by clicking the Advanced button.

True Type 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.

Download as Bit Image: 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.

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.

Graphic Controller: Fine Edge allows user to emphasize edges of texts and fine lines for improving readability.

Toner Save: Selecting this option extends the life of your toner cartridge and reduces your cost per page

without a significant reduction in print quality.

Printer Setting: If you select this option, this feature is determined by the setting youve made from the machine.

On: Select this option to allow the printer to use less toner on each page.

Off: If you do not need to save toner when printing a document, select this option.

Darkness: The option adjusts the toner density on print outputs. The values are Normal, Light, and Dark.

Tips for moving & storing your machine

Printing a machine report You can print a configuration page to view current printer settings, or to help troubleshoot printer problems. In ready mode, press and hold the (cancel button) for about 5 seconds.

A configuration page prints out. For Dell 1130 this information is provided on the demo page.

Using toner low alert (Dell 1130n only) If the amount of toner in the cartridge is low, the LED blinks red. You can set the option for this LED to blink or not.

1. Install the driver. (See Installing USB connected machines driver or Installing network connected machines driver.)

2. You can launch it from the Start menu, select Programs or All Programs > Dell > Dell Printers > your printer driver name > Printer Settings Utility.

3. Click Toner Low Alert. Select the appropriate setting and then click Apply.

Cleaning a 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 the best printing condition and use your machine longer.

Cleaning the cabinet of the machine with cleaning materials containing large amounts of alcohol, solvent, 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 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.

Cleaning the outside Clean the machine cabinet with a soft, lint-free cloth. Dampen the cloth slightly with water, but be careful not to let any water drip onto or into the machine.

Printing a cleaning sheet (Dell 1130n only) If you are experiencing blurred or smeared printouts, you can clear the problem by printing a cleaning sheet, provided by your machine. To print the cleaning sheet: In ready mode, press and hold the (cancel button) for about 10 seconds.

OPC cleaning sheet: Cleans the OPC drum of the toner cartridge.

This process will produce a page with toner debris, which should be discarded. Your machine automatically picks up a sheet of paper from the tray and prints out a cleaning sheet with dust or toner particles on it.

Cleaning the inside 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.

1. Turn the machine off and unplug the power cord. Wait for the machine to cool down.

2. Open the front cover and pull the toner cartridge out. Set it on a clean flat surface

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.

3. With a dry, lint-free cloth, wipe away any dust and spilled toner from the toner cartridge area.

While cleaning the inside of the machine, be careful not to damage the transfer roller or any other inside parts. Do not use solvents such as benzene or thinner to clean. Printing quality problems can occur and cause damage to the machine.

4. Locate the long strip of glass (LSU) inside the machine and gently swab the glass to see if dirt turns the white cotton black.

5. Reinsert the toner cartridge and close the front cover.

6. Plug in the power cord and turn the machine on.

Storing the toner cartridge Toner cartridges contain components that are sensitive to light, temperature, and humidity. Dell suggests users follow the recommendations to ensure the optimum performance, highest quality, and longest life from your new Dell toner cartridge.

Store this cartridge in the same environment as the printer it will be used in; this should be in controlled office temperature and humidity conditions. The toner cartridge should remain in its original, 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, always 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 they were installed in the machine.

Do not store consumables in;

Temperature greater than 40C (104F).

Humidity range less than 20% nor not 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.

Handling instructions Do not touch the surface of the photosensitive 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.

Use of non-Dell and refilled toner cartridge Dell does not recommend or approve the use of non-Dell brand toner cartridges in your printer including generic, store brand, refilled, or remanufactured toner cartridges.

Dells printer warranty does not cover damage to the machine caused by the use of a refilled, remanufactured, or non-Dell brand 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-out number may vary depending on the print density of the pages you print on, operating environment, printing interval, media type, and/or media size. For example, if you print a lot of graphics, the consumption of the toner is high and you may need to change the cartridge more often.

Tips for moving & storing your machine When moving the machine, do not tilt or turn it upside down. Otherwise, the inside of the machine may be contaminated by toner, which can cause damage to the machine or bad print quality.

When moving the machine, make sure at least two people are holding the machine securely.

Redistributing toner

Tips for avoiding paper curls

Tips for avoiding paper jams

Clearing paper jams

Solving other problems

Redistributing toner When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life:

White streaks or light printing occurs.

The 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.

1. Open the front cover.

2. Pull the toner cartridge out.

3. Thoroughly roll the cartridge five or six times to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge.

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.

Do not touch the green underside of the toner cartridge. Use the handle on the cartridge to avoid touching this area.

4. Hold the toner cartridge by the handle and slowly insert the cartridge into the opening in the machine.

Tabs on the sides of the cartridge and corresponding grooves within the machine will guide the cartridge into the correct position until it locks into place completely.

5. Close the front cover. Ensure that the cover is securely closed.

Tips for avoiding paper curls 1. Open the rear cover.

2. Pull down the pressure lever on each side.

1. Pressure lever

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 the port while printing, the abrupt termination of the driver keeps the port locked and unavailable for subsequent print jobs. If this situation occurs, try to release the port by selecting Release port in Port configuration window.

Refer to Linux Users Guide that came with your computer for further information on Linux error messages.

802.11b/g 802.11b/g can share same hardware and use the 2.4 GHz band. 802.11b supports bandwidth up to 11 Mbps; 802.11g up to 54 Mbps. 802.11b/g devices may occasionally suffer interference from microwave ovens, cordless telephones, and Bluetooth devices.

Access point Access Point or Wireless Access Point (AP or WAP) is a device that connects wireless communication devices together on wireless local area networks (WLAN), and acts as a central transmitter and receiver of WLAN radio signals.

ADF An Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is a mechanism that will automatically feed an original sheet of paper so that the machine can scan some amount of the paper at once.

AppleTalk AppleTalk is a proprietary suite of protocols developed by Apple, Inc for computer networking. It was included in the original Macintosh (1984) and is now deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP networking.

BIT Depth A computer graphics term describing the number of bits used to represent the color of a single pixel in a bitmapped image. Higher color depth gives a broader range of distinct colors. As the number of bits increases, the number of possible colors becomes impractically large for a color map. 1-bit color is commonly called as monochrome or black and white.

BMP A bitmapped graphics format used internally by the Microsoft Windows graphics subsystem (GDI), and used commonly as a simple graphics file format on that platform.

BOOTP Bootstrap Protocol. A network protocol used by a network client to obtain its IP address automatically. This is usually done in the bootstrap process of computers or operating systems running on them. The BOOTP servers assign the IP address from a pool of addresses to each client. BOOTP enables 'diskless workstation' computers to obtain an IP address prior to loading any advanced operating system.

CCD Charge Coupled Device (CCD) is a hardware which enables the scan job. CCD Locking mechanism is also used to hold the CCD module to prevent any damage when you move the machine.

Collation Collation is a process of printing a multiple-copy job in sets. When collation is selected, the device prints an entire set before printing additional copies.

Control Panel A control panel is a flat, typically vertical, area where control or monitoring instruments are displayed. They are typically found in front of the machine.

Coverage It is the printing term used for a toner usage measurement on printing. For example, 5% coverage means that an A4 sided paper has about 5% image or text on it. So, if the paper or original has complicated images or lots of text on it, the coverage will be higher and at the same time, a toner usage will be as much as the coverage.

CSV Comma Separated Values (CSV). A type of file format, CSV is used to exchange data between disparate applications. The file format, as it is used in Microsoft Excel, has become a pseudo standard throughout the industry, even among non-Microsoft platforms.

DADF A Duplex Automatic Document Feeder (DADF) is a mechanism that will automatically feed and flip over an original sheet of paper so that the machine can scan on both sides of the paper.

Default The value or setting that is in effect when taking a printer out of its box state, reset, or initialized.

DHCP A Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a client-server networking protocol.

DPI Dots Per Inch (DPI) is a measurement of resolution that is used for scanning and printing. Generally, higher DPI results in a higher resolution, more visible detail in the image, and a larger file size.

DRPD Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection. Distinctive Ring is a telephone company service which enables a user to use a single telephone line to answer several different telephone numbers.

Duplex A mechanism that will automatically flip over a sheet of paper so that the machine can print (or scan) on both sides of the paper. A printer equipped with a Duplex can print double-sided of paper.

Duty Cycle Duty cycle is the page quantity which does not affect printer performance for a month. Generally the printer has the lifespan limitation such as pages per year. The lifespan means the average capacity of print-outs, usually within the warranty period. For example, if the duty cycle is 48,000 pages per month assuming 20 working days, a printer limits 2,400 pages a day.

ECM Error Correction Mode (ECM) is an optional transmission mode built into Class 1 fax machines or fax modems. It automatically detects and corrects errors in the fax transmission process that are sometimes caused by telephone

line noise.

Emulation Emulation is a technique of one machine obtaining the same results as another. An emulator duplicates the functions of one system with a different system, so that the second system behaves like the first system. Emulation focuses on exact reproduction of external behavior, which is in contrast to simulation, which concerns an abstract model of the system being simulated, often considering its internal state.
