selecting and loading print media
This chapter introduces you how to load originals and print media into your machine.
This chapter includes:
• Selecting print media
• Loading paper
• Printing on special print medias
• Setting the paper size and type
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 meets the
guidelines for use with your machine. 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 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.
The illustrations of the machine are based on ML-2240 series. ML-1640 series does not have a manual tray.
• 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 Samsung has no control.
• 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, requiring repairs. Such repairs are not covered by
Samsung’s warranty or service agreements.

Guidelines for special print media
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
machine 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.
• 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. Check your machine’s
specification to view the fusing temperature, see
page 40. 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 envelope’s
seams meet.
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 machine’s fusing temperature.
Check your machine’s specification to view the
fusing temperature, see page 40.
- 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 or
custom-sized
materials
• Do not print on media smaller than 76 mm wide or
127 mm long.
• In the software application, set margins at least
6.4 mm away from the edges of the material.
Transparencies • To avoid damaging the machine, use only
transparencies designed for use in laser printers.
• Transparencies used in the machine must be able
to withstand 180 °C, the machine’s fusing
temperature.
• Place them on a flat surface after removing them
from the machine.
• Do not leave them 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 trancsparencies from sticking to each
other, do not leave the printed sheets stack up as
they are printed out.

z LOADING PAPER
Loading paper in the tray
Load the print media you use for the majority of your print jobs in the tray.
The tray can hold a maximum of 150 sheets of 75 g/m2 (20 lb bond) plain
paper.
1. Grasp the paper input tray and pull it toward you to open. Pinch the rear
guide and pull it out to extend the tray.
2. Prepare a stack of paper for loading by flexing or fanning them back and
forth. Straighten the edges on a level surface.
3. Load paper with the print side facing up. Make sure that all four corners
are flat in the tray.
Preprinted paper • Letterhead 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. Check your machine’s
specification to view the fusing temperature, see
page 40.
• 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 Samsung’s
warranty or service agreements.
MEDIA TYPE GUIDELINES
Because the machine is very light, it may be moved when you use it;
for example, when opening/closing the tray or installing/removing the
toner cartridge. Be careful not to move the machine.
Pay attention not to overload paper. Paper overloading may
cause paper jams.
22 _Selecting and loading print media
4. Pinch the rear guide to adjust for the paper length and pinch the side
guide and slide it to the left flush against the paper.
5. If necessary, close the paper cover to keep the paper loaded in the tray
from dust.
PRINTING ON SPECIAL PRINT MEDIAS
The machine can hold special sizes and types of print material, such as
postcards, note cards, and envelopes. Especially, it is useful for single page
printing on letterhead or colored paper.
Feeding the print material manually
• Load only one size of print media at a time in the tray.
• To prevent paper jams, do not add paper when there is still paper in
the tray. This also applies to other types of print media.
• Print media should be loaded face up with the side you want to print,
and the top edge going into the tray first. Place print materials in the
center of the tray.
• Always load only the specified print media to avoid paper jams and
print quality problems. (See "Selecting print media" on page 18.)
• Flatten any curl on postcards, envelopes, and labels before loading
them into the tray.
1. Grasp the paper input tray and pull it toward you to open. Pinch the rear
guide and pull it out to extend the tray.
2. Place the dust cover on the paper input tray.
(For ML-1640 Series, skip this step and go to the next step.)
• Do not push the width guide far enough to cause the material to
warp.
• If you do not adjust the width guide, it may cause paper jam.
Because the machine is very light, it may be moved when you use it;
for example, when opening/closing the tray or installing/removing the
toner cartridge. Be careful not to move the machine.

This chapter includes:
• Cleaning your machine
• Maintaining the cartridge
• Replacing the toner cartridge
CLEANING YOUR MACHINE
To maintain print quality, follow the cleaning procedures below each time
the toner cartridge is replaced or if print quality problems occur.
Cleaning the outside
Clean the cabinet of the machine with a soft lint-free cloth. You can dampen
the cloth slightly with water, but be careful not to let any water drip onto or
into the machine.
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 or
reduces these problems.
1. Turn the machine off and unplug the power cord, then wait for the
machine to cool down.
2. Open the front cover.
3. Pull the toner cartridge out and remove it from the machine.
4. Remove the manual tray by pulling it out.
The illustrations of the machine are based on ML-2240 series. ML-1640 series does not have a manual tray.
• 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 its surrounding is contaminated with toner, we
recommend you to use cloth or tissue dampened with water to
clean it. If you use a vacuum cleaner, toner blown into the air may
be harmful.
For ML-2240 Series, if you have installed the dust cover, remove the
dust cover before opening the front cover.
Because the machine is very light, it may be moved when you use it;
for example, when opening/closing the tray or installing/removing the
toner cartridge. Be careful not to move the machine.
ML-1640 series does not have a manual tray, go to step 5.
26 _Maintenance
5. With a dry, lint-free cloth, wipe away any dust and spilled toner from the
toner cartidge area and the toner cartridge cavity.
6. Locate the long strip of glass (LSU) inside the top of the cartridge
compartment, and gently swab the glass to see if dirt turns the white
cotton black.
7. After inserting the manual tray and the toner cartridge, close the cover.
Make sure that the cover is securely closed. If it is not firmly closed,
printing errors may occur when you print.
8. Plug in the power cord, and turn the machine on.
To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it
to light for more than few minute. Cover it with a piece of paper, if
necessary. Also, do not touch the black transfer roller inside the
machine.
If it is not firmly closed, printing errors may occur when you print.
Maintenance_ 27
MAINTAINING THE CARTRIDGE
Toner cartridge storage
Toner cartridges contain components that are sensitive to light,
temperature, and humidity. Samsung suggests users follow the
recommendations to ensure the optimum performance, highest quality, and
longest life from your new Samsung 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
• Correct side up in a horizontal position (not standing on end)
• Do not store consumables in;
- Temperature greater than 40°C (104°F).
- Humidity range less than 20% and 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-Samsung and refilled toner cartridge
Samsung Electronics does not recommend or approve the use of nonSamsung brand toner cartridges in your printer including generic, store
brand, refilled, or remanufactured toner cartridges.
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.
Redistributing toner
Small amount of toner is left in the cartridge. You can temporarily improve
print quality by redistributing the toner.
1. Open the front cover.
2. Pull the toner cartridge out and remove it from the machine.
• Samsung’s printer warranty does not cover damage to the
machine caused by the use of a refilled, remanufactured, or nonSamsung brand toner cartridge.
For ML-2240 Series, if you have installed the dust cover, remove the
dust cover before opening the front cover.
• Avoid reaching too far into the machine. The fusing area may be
hot.
• To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it to light
for more than few minutes.
• Do not touch the green surface (or sky blue), the OPC drum, with
your hands or any other material. Use the handle on the cartidge
to avoid touching this area.
• Be careful not to expose the green surface (or sky blue), the OPC
drum, into light. This will cause damage to the OPC drum. Cover
the toner cartridge’s OPC drum with paper to avoid damaging it
from the light.
• Do not turn the toner cartridge over.
Because the machine is very light, it may be moved when you use it;
for example, when opening/closing the tray or installing/removing the
toner cartridge. Be careful not to move the machine.
28 _Maintenance
3. Gently shake the toner cartridge from side to side five or six times to
redistribute the toner.
4. Reinsert the toner cartridge into the machine. Ensure that the toner
cartridge snaps into place.
5. Close the front cover. Make sure that the cover is securely closed. If it is
not firmly closed, printing errors may occur when you print.
REPLACING THE TONER CARTRIDGE
When the toner LED lights red, a toner cartridge has reached its estimated
cartridge life. Your machine stops printing.
Also, the Smart Panel program window appears on the computer telling you
to replace the cartridge.
At this stage, the toner cartridge needs to be replaced. Check the type of
toner cartridge for your machine. (See "Supply" on page 39.)
1. Turn the machine off, then wait a few minutes for the machine to cool.
2. Grasp the front cover and pull it toward you to open.
3. Remove the toner cartridge from its bag and remove the paper
protecting the cartridge by pulling the packing tape.
If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry
cloth and wash it in cold water. Hot water sets toner into
fabric.
For ML-2240 Series, if you have installed the dust cover, remove the
dust cover before opening the front cover.
Because the machine is very light, it may be moved when you
use it; for example, when opening/closing the tray or installing/
removing the toner cartridge. Be careful not to move the machine.
• Do not touch the green surface (or sky blue), the OPC drum,
with your hands or any other material. Use the handle on the
cartidge to avoid touching this area.
• Be careful not to expose the green surface (or sky blue), the
OPC drum, into light. This will cause damage to the OPC
drum. Cover the toner cartridge’s OPC drum with paper to
avoid damaging it from the light.
• Do not turn the toner cartridge over.
Maintenance_ 29
4. Holding both handles on the toner cartridge, thoroughly rock it from side
to side to evenly distribute the toner.
5. Locate the cartridge slots inside the machine, one on each side.
6. Unfold the toner cartridge handle and grasp it. Insert the cartridge in the
machine until it snaps into place.
7. Close the front cover. Make sure that the cover is securely closed. If the
cover is not firmly closed, printing errors may occur when you print.
If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash
it in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric.
• Don't use sharp objects, such as a knife or scissors, to open
the toner cartridge package. You could damage the surface of
the toner cartridge.
• To prevent damage, do not expose the toner cartridge to light
for more than a few minutes. Cover it with a piece of paper to
protect it if necessary. Carefully insert or pull out the toner cartridge not to scratch
against the machine.
• Do not touch the green surface (or sky blue), the OPC drum,
with your hands or any other material. Use the handle on the
cartidge to avoid touching this area.
• Be careful not to expose the green surface (or sky blue), the
OPC drum, into light. This will cause damage to the OPC
drum. Cover the toner cartridge’s OPC drum with paper to
avoid damaging it from the light.
• Do not turn the toner cartridge over.
Average yield for a new toner cartridge is 1,500 standard pages in
accordance with the ISO/IEC 19752 standard. (Average yield for the
original toner cartridge supplied with the machine is 700 standard
pages.)

This chapter gives helpful information for what to do if you encounter an error.
This chapter includes:
• Tips for avoiding paper jams
• Clearing paper jams
• Solving other problems
TIPS FOR AVOIDING PAPER JAMS
By selecting the correct media types, most paper jams can be avoided.
When a paper jam occurs, follow the steps outlined on page 30.
• Follow the procedures on page 21. Ensure that the adjustable guides
are positioned correctly.
• Do not overload the tray. Ensure that the paper level is below the paper
capacity mark on the inside of the tray.
• Do not remove paper from the tray while your machine is printing.
• Flex, fan, and straighten paper before loading.
• Do not use creased, damp, or highly curled paper.
• Do not mix paper types in a tray.
• Use only recommended print media. (See "Setting the paper size and
type" on page 23.)
• Ensure that the recommended side of the print media is facing up in the
tray.
If a paper jam occurs, the error LED on the control panel lights orange. Find
and remove the jammed paper.
To resume printing after clearing paper jams, you must open and close the
front cover.
CLEARING PAPER JAMS
In the paper exit area
1. If the paper jams as it exits to the output tray and a long portion of the
paper is visible, pull the paper straight out.
When you pull the jammed paper, if there is resistance and the paper
does not move immediately, stop pulling. Continue with the next step.
The illustrations of the machine are based on ML-2240 series. ML-1640 series does not have a manual tray.
Paper jams in this area may result in loose toner on the
page. If you get any toner on your clothes, wash them in cold
water as hot water will set the toner into the fabric.
31 _Troubleshooting
2. Open the top cover and the inner cover.
3. Loosen the paper if it is caught in the heat rollers. Then pull the paper
gently out.
4. Close the inner cover and the top cover. Printing resumes automatically.
In the paper feed area
1. Remove any misfeed paper by pulling it out by the visible edge from the
tray. Make sure that all of the paper is properly aligned in the tray.
2. Open and close the front or top cover to resume printing the
document from failed pages.
• When removing the jammed paper, be careful not to touch the
heat roller (located underneath the inner cover). It is hot and
could cause burns!
• The top and inner cover themselves may also be hot due to
the heat roller. Allow the machine to cool before opening the
covers.
Failed pages will not reprint. Try printing the pages.
Troubleshooting_ 32
Around the toner cartridge
1. Open the front cover.
2. Pull the toner cartridge out and remove it from the machine.

Printing quality problems
If the inside of the machine is dirty or paper has been loaded improperly,
you may notice a reduction in print quality. See the table below to clear the
problem.
CONDITION SUGGESTED SOLUTIONS
Light or faded print If a vertical white streak or faded area appears on
the page:
• The toner supply is low. You may be able to
temporarily extend the toner cartridge life. See
page 27. If this does not improve the print
quality, install a new toner cartridge.
• The paper may not meet paper specifications;
for example, the paper is too moist or too
rough. See page 18.
• If the entire page is light, the print resolution
setting is too low. Adjust the print resolution.
See the help screen of the printer driver.
• A combination of faded or smeared defects
may indicate that the toner cartridge needs
cleaning.
• The surface of the LSU part inside the machine
may be dirty. Clean the LSU by opening and
closing the front cover several times and if the
problem still occurs call the contact a service
representative.
Toner specks • The paper may not meet specifications; for
example, the paper is too moist or too rough.
See page 18.
• The paper path may need cleaning. See
"Cleaning the inside" on page 25.
Dropouts If faded areas, generally rounded, occur randomly
on the page:
• A single sheet of paper may be defective. Try
reprinting the job.
• The moisture content of the paper is uneven or
the paper has moist spots on its surface. Try a
different brand of paper. See page 18.
• The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing
processes can cause some areas to reject
toner. Try a different kind or brand of paper.
• Change the printer option and try again. Go to
printer properties, click Paper tab, and set type
to Thick. Refer to the Software section for
details.
If these steps do not correct the problem, contact a
service representative.

White Spots White spots appear on the page:
• The paper is too rough and a lot of dirt from the
paper falls to the inner devices within the
machine, which means the transfer belt may be
dirty. Clean the inside of your machine. Contact
a service representative.
• The paper path may need cleaning. Contact a
service representative.
Vertical lines If white vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The surface of the LSU part inside the machine
may be dirty. Clean the LSU by opening and
closing the front cover several times and if the
problem still occurs contact a service
representative.
Black background If the amount of background shading becomes
unacceptable:
• Change to a lighter weight paper. See page 18.
• Check the machine’s environment: very dry
(low humidity) or high humidity (higher than
80% RH) conditions can increase the amount
of background shading.
• Remove the old toner cartridge and install a
new one. See page 28.
Toner smear • Clean the inside of the machine. See page 25.
• Check the paper type and quality. See page 18.
• Remove the toner cartridge and install a new
one. See page 28.
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 page 28.
• Parts of the machine 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.
CONDITION SUGGESTED SOLUTIONS
Troubleshooting_ 36
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 page 18.
Page skew • Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
• Check the paper type and quality. See page 18.
• Ensure that the paper or other material is loaded
correctly and the guides are not too tight or too
loose against the paper stack.
Curl or wave • Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
• Check the paper type and quality. Both high
temperature and humidity can cause paper curl.
See page 18.
• Turn over the stack of paper in the tray. Also try
rotating the paper 180° in the tray.
Wrinkles or creases • Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
• Check the paper type and quality. See page 18.
• Turn over the stack of paper in the tray. Also try
rotating the paper 180° in the tray.

glossary
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. 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 machine 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
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.
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.
43 _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 machine 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 machine.
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.
IPX/SPX
IPX/SPX stands for Internet Packet Exchange/Sequenced Packet
Exchange. It is a networking protocol used by the Novell NetWare
operating systems. IPX and SPX both provide connection services
similar to TCP/IP, with the IPX protocol having similarities to IP, and
SPX having similarities to TCP. IPX/SPX was primarily designed for

Using Overlays
What is an Overlay?
An overlay is text and/or images stored in the computer hard
disk drive (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 letter with your company’s letterhead, you do not need
to load preprinted letterhead paper in the printer. You need only
tell the printer to print the letterhead overlay on your
document.
Creating a New Page Overlay
To use a page overlay, you must create a new page overlay
containing your logo or image.
1 Create or open a document containing text or an image for
use in a new page overlay. Position the items exactly as
you wish them to appear when printed as an overlay.

a much more user-friendly LPR GUI program.
To print any document file:
1 Type lpr from the Linux shell command
line and press Enter. The LPR GUI window appears.
When you type only lpr and press Enter, the Select
file(s) to print window appears first. Just select any files
you want to print and click Open.

and change the printer and print job properties.
For details about the properties window, see page 25.
