Choosing Paper and Other Materials You can print on a variety of print materials, such as plain paper, envelopes, labels, transparencies and so on. See “Paper Specifications” on page 6.3. To get the best possible print quality, use only high-quality copier-grade paper. When you choose print materials, consider the followings: •...
Type and Capacities Paper Type Capacity Plain paper Envelopes Labels Transparency films Card stocks a. Maximum capacity may be reduced depending on the paper thickness. b. If you load more than one sheet, paper jams will occur. You must load only one sheet at a time in the tray.
• For envelopes: - Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp, well creased folds. - Do not use envelopes with clasps and snaps. - Do not use envelopes with windows, coated lining, self- adhesive seals, or other synthetic materials. - Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes. - Only use envelopes recommended for laser printers.
• For Card Stock or Custom-sized materials: - Postcards, 3.5 by 5.83 in.(index) cards and other custom- sized materials can be printed with this printer. The minimum size is 76 by 127mm(3.0 by 5.0 in.) and the maximum size is 216 by 356mm(8.5 by 14 in.) - Always insert the short-edge into the Manual Feed first.
Verifying the Output Location The printer has the paper output tray that collects paper face- down, in correct order. Notes: • If you continuously print many pages, the surface of the output tray may become hot. Be careful not to touch the surface, and especially keep children away from the surface.
Using Manual Feed Mode If you select Manual Feed in the Source option, you can manually load paper in the 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 tray, load one sheet of paper at a time into the tray.
Printing on Special Materials Open the paper input tray. Load the print material in the paper input tray. Do not mix types. See the following directions to load each type of print material. •Load the envelopes in the tray with the flap side down. The stamp area is on the left side and the end of the envelope with the stamp area enters the printer first and center of the tray.
•Load transparencies in the tray with print side up, and the top with the adhesive strip going first. Notes: • To prevent transparencies from sticking to each other, do not let the printed sheets stack up as they are printed out. •...
Adjust the side guide to the edge of the material. When you print on special material, you must select Manual Feed for Source from the software application, and then select the correct paper size and type. For details, see Software User Guide. Press the button to start feeding.

Maintaining Your Printer This chapter provides suggestions for maintaining the toner cartridge and the printer. This chapter includes: • Maintaining the Toner Cartridge • Using the Toner Save Mode • Cleaning the Printer • Consumables and Replacement Parts...
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 the toner cartridge. The printer warranty does not cover damage caused by using a refilled cartridge.
Redistributing Toner When toner is low, faded or light areas may appear on a printed page. You may be able to temporarily improve the print quality by redistributing the toner. The following procedures may allow you to finish the current print job before replacing the toner cartridge.
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.
Replacing the Toner Cartridge If the print remains light after redistributing toner (see page 4.3), replace the toner cartridge. Remove the old cartridge and install a new toner cartridge. See “Installing the Toner Cartridge” on page 2.4. Using the Toner Save Mode The Toner Save mode allows the printer to use less toner on each page.
Cleaning the Printer To maintain the print quality, follow the cleaning procedures below each time the toner cartridge is replaced or if print quality problems occur. Note: While cleaning the inside of the printer, be careful not to touch the transfer roller (located underneath the toner cartridge). Oil from your fingers can cause print quality problems.
Pull the toner cartridge out and remove it from the printer.. With a dry, lint-free cloth, wipe away any dust and spilled toner from the toner cartridge area and the toner cartridge cavity. Note: To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it to light for more than few minute.
Reinsert the toner cartridge and close the cover. Make sure that the cover is securely closed. If it is not firmly closed, printing errors may occur when you print. Plug in the power cord, and turn the printer on. AINTAINING RINTER...
