loading originals and print media This chapter introduces you to loading originals and print media into your printer.

This chapter includes: Loading originals Selecting print media Changing the size of the paper in the paper tray

Printing on special print materials Setting the paper size and type

LOADING ORIGINALS You can use the scanner glass or ADF to load an original for copying, scanning, and sending a fax.

On the scanner glass Ensure that no originals are in the ADF. If an original is detected in the ADF, the printer gives it priority over the original on the scanner glass. To get the best scan quality, especially for colored or gray-scaled images, use the scanner glass. 1. Lift and open the scanner lid.

2. Place the original face down on the scanner glass and align it with the registration guide at the top left corner of the glass.

3. Close the scanner lid.

In the ADF Using the ADF, you can load up to 15 sheets of paper (75 g/m2, 20 lb bond) for one job. When you use the ADF: In the ADF: Do not load paper smaller than 142 x 148 mm (5.6 x

5.8 inches) or larger than 216 x 356 mm (8.5 x 14 inches). Do not attempt to load the following types of paper:

- carbon-paper or carbon-backed paper - coated paper - onion skin or thin paper - wrinkled or creased paper - curled or rolled paper - torn paper

Remove all staples and paper clips before loading. Ensure any glue, ink, or correction fluid on the paper is completely dry

before loading. Do not load originals that include different sizes or weights of paper. Do not load booklets, pamphlets, transparencies, or documents having

other unusual characteristics. 1. Flex or fan the edge of the paper stack to separate the pages before

loading originals.

Be careful not to break the scan glass. You may get hurt. Be careful not to let the scan cover fall over your hands. You may

get hurt. When scanning or copying, do not look at the light inside the

scanner. It is harmful for your eyes and it can be dangerous.

Leaving the scanner lid open while copying may affect copy quality and toner consumption.

Dust on the scanner glass may cause black spots on the printout. Always keep the scanner glass clean.

If you are copying a page from a book or magazine, lift the scanner lid until its hinges are caught by the stopper and then close the lid. If the book or magazine is thicker than 30 mm, start copying with the lid open.

24 | Loading originals and print media

2. Load the original face up into the ADF. Ensure that the bottom of the original stack matches the paper size marked on the document input tray.

3. Adjust the document width guides to the paper size.

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 printer. 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 printer. Properties, such as weight, composition, grain, and moisture content, are important factors that affect the printers performance and the output quality. When you choose print materials, consider the following: The type, size and weight of the print media for your printer are

described later in this section. 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.

Dust on the ADF glass may cause black lines on the printout. Always keep the ADF glass clean.

Be careful not to put your hands in the ADF roller. You may get hurt.

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 Dell has no control.

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 Dells warranty or service agreements.

Ensure that you do not use the inkjet photo paper with this printer. It could cause damage to the printer.

MEDIA TYPE GUIDELINES

Envelopes 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 or jamming may occur. - Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should

lie flat with less than 6 mm 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. Ensure that the seam at both ends of the envelope

extends all the way to the corner of the envelope.

1 Acceptable 2 Unacceptable

Envelopes (Continued)

Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one flap that folds over to seal must use adhesives compatible with the printers fusing temperature for 0.1 second. Check your printers specification to view the fusing temperature, see "Printer specifications" on page 73. 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.

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 your printers fusing temperature. Check your printers specification to know the fusing temperature, see "General specifications" on page 72.

- 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.

Ensure 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

Do not print on media smaller than 76 mm wide or 356 mm long.

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

MEDIA TYPE GUIDELINES

CHANGING THE SIZE OF THE PAPER IN THE PAPER TRAY To load longer sizes of paper, such as Legal-sized paper, you need to adjust the paper guides to extend the paper tray. To change the tray 1 size to other size, you must adjust the paper length guide properly. 1. Pull the tray 1 out of the printer. Open the paper cover and remove

paper from the tray 1 if necessary. 2. Pressing and unlatching the guide lock in the top of the tray, pull the tray

out manually.

3. Load paper into the tray.

4. Slide the paper length guide until it lightly touches the end of the paper stack. Squeeze the paper width guide and slide it to the edge of the paper stack without causing it to bend.

For paper smaller than Letter-sized, return the paper guides to their original positions and adjust the paper length guide and paper width guide.

If the paper that you need to print is shorter than length 222 mm (8.74 inches), press and unlatch the guide lock in the tray, push the tray in manually. Adjust the paper length guide and paper width guide.

5. Close the paper cover.

Preprinted paper

Letterhead must be printed with heat-resistant ink that will not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous emissions when subjected to the printers fusing temperature for 0.1 second. Check your printers specification to know the fusing temperature, see "General specifications" on page 72.

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.

Using photographic paper or coated paper may cause problems, requiring repairs. Such repairs are not covered by Dells warranty or service agreements.

MEDIA TYPE GUIDELINES

Do not push the paper width guides far enough to cause the materials to warp.

If you do not adjust the paper width guides, it may cause paper jams.

28 | Loading originals and print media

6. Slide the tray 1 back into the printer. 7. After loading paper, set the paper type and size for the tray. See "Setting

the paper size and type" on page 29.

The tray is preset to Letter or A4 size, depending on your country. To change the size to A4 or Letter, you must adjust the lever and paper width guide properly.

1 Pull the tray out of the printer. Open the paper cover and remove paper from the tray if necessary.

2 If you want to change the size to Letter, hold the lever at the back of the tray, and rotate the lever clockwise.

3 Squeeze the paper width guide and slide it to the edge of the lever.

Due to insufficient paper in the tray, the paper length guide moves inward, load the tray with enough paper.

If you experience problems with paper feed, load a paper into the tray one by one.

You can load previously printed paper. The printed side should be facing up with an uncurled edge at the front. If you experience problems with paper feed, turn the paper around. Note that print quality is not guaranteed.

If you want to change the size to A4, first move the paper width guide to left and rotate the lever counterclockwise. If you force the lever, it could damage the tray.

In Fax mode, the printer answers an incoming fax call and immediately goes into the fax reception mode.

In Tel mode, you can receive a fax by pressing On Hook Dial and then Color Start or Black Start. You can also pick up the handset of the extension phone and then press the remote receive code. See "Receiving manually using an extension telephone" on page 41.

In Ans/Fax mode, an answering printer attached to your printer answers an incoming call, and the caller can leave a message on the answering printer. If the fax machine senses a fax tone on the line, the printer automatically switches to Fax mode to receive the fax. See "Receiving automatically in Ans/Fax mode" on page 41.

In DRPD mode, you can receive a call using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD) feature. Distinctive Ring is a telephone company service which enables an user to use a single telephone line to answer several different telephone numbers. For further details, see "Receiving faxes using DRPD mode" on page 41.

6. Press OK to save your selection. 7. Press Stop/Clear to return to ready mode.

Receiving automatically in Fax mode Your printer is preset to Fax mode at the factory. When you receive a fax, the printer answers the call on a specified number of rings and automatically receives the fax. To change the number of rings, see "Ring to Answer" on page 43.

Receiving manually in Tel mode You can receive a fax call by pressing On Hook Dial and then pressing Black Start or Color Start when you hear a fax tone from the remote printer. The printer begins receiving a fax and returns to ready mode when the reception is completed.

Receiving manually using an extension telephone This features works best when you are using an extension telephone connected to the EXT socket on the back of your printer. You can receive a fax from someone you are talking to on the extension telephone without going to the fax machine. When you receive a call on the extension phone and hear fax tones, press the keys *9* on the extension phone. The printer receives the fax. Press the buttons slowly in sequence. If you still hear the fax tone from the remote printer, try pressing *9* once again. *9* is the remote receive code preset at the factory. The first and the last asterisks are fixed, but you can change the middle number to whatever you wish. For details about changing the code, see "Rcv Start Code" on page 43.

Receiving automatically in Ans/Fax mode To use this mode, you must attach an answering printer to the EXT socket on the back of your printer. If the caller leaves a message, the answering printer stores the message as it would normally. If your printer detects a fax tone on the line, it automatically starts to receive the fax.

Receiving faxes using DRPD mode Distinctive Ring is a telephone company service which enables an user to use a single telephone line to answer several different telephone numbers. The particular number someone uses to call you is identified by different ringing patterns, which consist of various combinations of long and short ringing sounds. This feature is often used by answering services who answer telephones for many different clients and need to know which number someone is calling in on to properly answer the phone. Using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD) feature, your fax machine can learn the ring pattern you designate to be answered by the fax machine. Unless you change it, this ringing pattern will continue to be recognized and answered as a fax call, and all other ringing patterns will be forwarded to the extension telephone or answering printer plugged into the EXT socket. You can easily suspend or change DRPD at any time. Before using the DRPD option, Distinctive Ring service must be installed on your telephone line by the telephone company.

MAINTAINING THE 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 it is ready for

use. Do not refill the toner cartridge. The printer warranty does not cover

damage caused by using a refilled cartridge. Store toner cartridges in the same environment as your printer.

Expected cartridge life The life of the toner cartridge yield 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.

Redistributing toner When a toner is low, faded or light areas may appear. It is possible that colored images may be printed with incorrect colors due to flawed mixing of toner colors when one of the colored toner cartridges is low on toner. You can temporarily improve print quality by redistributing the toner. The toner-related message saying that the toner is low may appear on

the display. 1. Using the handle, completely open the front cover.

2. Grasp the handles on the toner cartridge and pull to remove the four cartridges from the printer.

3. Holding both handles on the toner cartridge, thoroughly rock it from side to side to evenly distribute the toner.

4. Slide the four toner cartridges back into the printer.

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

REPLACING THE TONER CARTRIDGE The printer uses four colors and has a different toner cartridge for each one: yellow (Y), magenta (M), cyan (C), and black (K). The status LED and the toner-related message on the display indicates

which toner cartridge should be replaced. Incoming faxes are saved in memory. Also, the Dell Toner Management System program window appears on the computer indicating you to replace the cartridge. At this stage, the toner cartridge needs to be replaced. Check the type of toner cartridge for your printer. (See "Ordering supplies" on page 71.) 1. Turn the printer off, then wait a few minutes for the printer to cool. 2. Using the handle, completely open the front cover.

If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash it in cold water. Do not use hot water as it sets the toner onto the fabric.

If the front cover is not completely closed, the printer will not operate.

Vertical repetitive defects

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, print a cleaning sheet several times to clean the cartridge. After the printout, if you still have the same problems, remove the toner cartridge and install a new one. See "Replacing the toner cartridge" on page 53.

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. Contact a service representative.

Background scatter Background scatter results from bits of toner randomly 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 the printer properties.

Misformed characters

If characters are improperly formed and producing hollow images, the paper stock may be too slick. Try a different paper. See "Selecting print media" on page 24.

ADF An Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is a mechanism that will automatically feed an original sheet of paper so that the printer 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 printer.

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 printer.

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 printer 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. A DHCP server provides configuration parameters specific to the DHCP client host requesting, generally, information required by the client host to participate on an IP network. DHCP also provides a mechanism for allocation of IP addresses to client hosts.

DIMM Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM), a small circuit board that holds memory. DIMM stores all the data within the printer like printing data, received fax data.

DNS The Domain Name Server (DNS) is a system that stores information associated with domain names in a distributed database on networks, such as the Internet.

Dot Matrix Printer A dot matrix printer refers to a type of computer printer with a print head that runs back and forth on the page and prints by impact, striking an ink-soaked cloth ribbon against the paper, much like a typewriter.

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 printer 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 printer obtaining the same results as another.

The following glossary helps you get familiar with the product by understanding the terminologies commonly used with printing as well as mentioned in this user's guide.

76 | Glossary

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.

Ethernet Ethernet is a frame-based computer networking technology for local area networks (LANs). It defines wiring and signaling for the physical layer, and frame formats and protocols for the media access control (MAC)/data link layer of the OSI model. Ethernet is mostly standardized as IEEE 802.3. It has become the most widespread LAN technology in use during the 1990s to the present.

EtherTalk A suite of protocols developed by Apple Computer for computer networking. It was included in the original Macintosh (1984) and is now deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP networking.

FDI Foreign Device Interface (FDI) is a card installed inside the printer to allow a third party device such as a coin operated device or a card reader. Those devices allow the pay-for-print service on your printer.

FTP A File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a commonly used protocol for exchanging files over any network that supports the TCP/IP protocol (such as the Internet or an intranet).

Fuser Unit The part of a laser printer that melts the toner onto the print media. It consists of a hot roller and a back-up roller. After toner is transferred onto the paper, the fuser unit applies heat and pressure to ensure that the toner stays on the paper permanently, which is why paper is warm when it comes out of a laser printer.

Gateway A connection between computer networks, or between a computer network and a telephone line. It is very popular, as it is a computer or a network that allows access to another computer or network.

Grayscale A shades of gray that represent light and dark portions of an image when color images are converted to grayscale; colors are represented by various shades of gray.

Halftone An image type that simulates grayscale by varying the number of dots. Highly colored areas consist of a large number of dots, while lighter areas consist of a smaller number of dots.

HDD Hard Disk Drive (HDD), commonly referred to as a hard drive or hard disk, is a non-volatile storage device which stores digitally-encoded data on rapidly rotating platters with magnetic surfaces.

IEEE The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is an international non-profit, professional organization for the advancement of technology related to electricity.

IEEE 1284 The 1284 parallel port standard was developed by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The term "1284-B" refers to a specific connector type on the end of the parallel cable that attaches to the peripheral (for example, a printer).

Intranet A private network that uses Internet Protocols, network connectivity, and possibly the public telecommunication system to securely share part of an organization's information or operations with its employees. Sometimes the term refers only to the most visible service, the internal website.

IP address An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a unique number that devices use in order to identify and communicate with each other on a network utilizing the Internet Protocol standard.

IPM The Images Per Minute (IPM) is a way of measuring the speed of a printer. An IPM rate indicates the number of single-sided sheets a printer can complete within one minute.

IPP The Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) defines a standard protocol for printing as well as managing print jobs, media size, resolution, and so forth. IPP can be used locally or over the Internet to hundreds of printers, and also supports access control, authentication, and encryption, making it a much more capable and secure printing solution than older ones.
