Important Precautions and Safety Information
When using this machine, these basic safety precautions should always be
followed to reduce risk of fire, electric shock and injury to people:
1. Read and understand all instructions.
2. Use common sense whenever operating electrical appliances.
3. Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the machine and in the
literature accompanying the machine.
4. If an operating instruction appears to conflict with safety information,
heed the safety information. You may have misunderstood the operating
instruction. If you cannot resolve the conflict, contact your sales or
service representative for assistance.
5. Unplug the machine from the AC wall socket and/or telephone jack
before cleaning. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners. Use only a damp
cloth for cleaning.
6. Do not place the machine on an unstable cart, stand or table. It may fall,
causing serious damage.
7. Your machine should never be placed on, near or over a radiator, heater,
air conditioner or ventilation duct.
8. Do not allow anything to rest on the power. Do not locate your machine
where the cords will be abused by persons walking on them.
9. Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords. This can diminish
performance, and may result in the risk of fire or electric shock.
10. Do not allow pets to chew on the AC power, telephone or PC interface
cords.
11. Never push objects of any kind into the machine through case or cabinet
openings. They may touch dangerous voltage points, creating a risk of
fire or shock. Never spill liquid of any kind onto or into the machine.
12. Your machine may have a heavy cover for optimal pressure on the
document for the best scanning and/or faxing (usually the flatbed-type
machine). In this case, replace the cover after placing document on the
scan glass, by holding and moving it down slowly until it seats on its
location.
13. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble the machine.
Take it to a qualified service technician when repair work is required.
Opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltages or
other risks. Incorrect reassembly could cause electric shock when the
unit is subsequently used.
14. Unplug the machine from the telephone jack, PC and AC wall outlet and
refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following
conditions:
•When any part of the power cord, plug or connecting cable is damaged
or frayed.
•If liquid has been spilled into the machine.
•If the machine has been exposed to rain or water.
•If the machine does not operate properly after instructions have been
followed.
•If the machine has been dropped, or the cabinet appears damaged.
•If the machine exhibits a sudden and distinct change in performance.
15. Adjust only those controls covered by the operating instructions.
Improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage, and may
require extensive work by a qualified service technician to restore the
machine to normal operation.
16. Avoid using this machine during a lightning storm. There may be a
remote risk of electric shock from lightning. If possible, unplug the AC
power and telephone cord for the duration of the lightning storm.
17. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
18. Use only No.26 AWG or larger telephone line cord.

the following two conditions:
•This device may not cause harmful interference, and
•This device must accept any interference received, including
interference that may cause undesired operation.
Downloaded From ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
9
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a
Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are
designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a
residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off
and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or
more of the following measures:
•Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
•Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
•Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
•Consult the dealer or experienced radio TV technician for help.
CAUTION: Change or modifications not expressly approved by the
manufacturer responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to
operate the equipment.
Canadian Radio Interference Regulations
This digital apparatus does not exceed the Class B limits for radio noise
emissions from digital apparatus as set out in the interference-causing
equipment standard entitled “Digital Apparatus”, ICES-003 of the Industry
and Science Canada.
Cet appareil numérique respecte les limites de bruits radioélectriques
applicables aux appareils numériques de Classe B prescrites dans la norme
sur le matériel brouilleur: “Appareils Numériques”, ICES-003 édictée par
l’Industrie et Sciences Canada.
Fax Branding
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 makes it unlawful for any
person to use a computer or other electronic device to send any message via
a telephone facsimile machine unless such message clearly contains in a
margin at the top or bottom of each transmitted page or on the first page of
the transmission the following information:
(1) the date and time of transmission
(2) identification of either business, business entity or individual sending the
message; and
(3) telephone number of either the sending machine, business, business
entity or individual.
The Telephone Company may make changes in its communications facilities,
equipment operations or procedures where such action is reasonably
required in the operation of its business and is not inconsistent with the rules
and regulations in FCC Part 68. If such changes can be reasonably expected
to render any customer terminal equipment incompatible with telephone
company communications facilities, or require modification or alteration of
such terminal equipment, or otherwise materially affect its use or
performance, the customer shall be given adequate notice in writing, to allow
the customer an opportunity to maintain uninterrupted service.
Ringer Equivalence Number
The Ringer Equivalence Number and FCC Registration Number for this
machine may be found on the label located on the bottom or rear of the
machine. In some instances you may need to provide these numbers to the
telephone company.
The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) is a measure of the electrical load
placed on the telephone line, and is useful for determining whether you have
“overloaded” the line. Installing several types of equipment on the same
telephone line may result in problems making and receiving telephone calls,
especially ringing when your line is called. The sum of all Ringer Equivalence
Numbers of the equipment on your telephone line should be less than five in
order to assure proper service from the telephone company. In some cases,
a sum of five may not be usable on your line. If any of your telephone
equipment is not operating properly, you should immediately remove it from
your telephone line, as it may cause harm to the telephone network.
WARNING:
FCC Regulations state that changes or modifications to this equipment not
expressly approved by the manufacturer could void the user’s authority to
operate this equipment. In the event that terminal equipment causes harm
to the telephone network, the telephone company should notify the customer
that service may be stopped. However, where prior notice is impractical, the
company may temporarily cease service, providing that they:
a) promptly notify the customer.
b) give the customer an opportunity to correct the equipment problem.
c) inform the customer of the right to bring a complaint to the Federal
Communication Commission pursuant to procedures set out in FCC Rules and
Regulations Subpart E of Part 68.
You should also know that:
• Your machine is not designed to be connected to a digital PBX system.
• If you intend to use a computer modem or fax modem on the same phone
line as your machine, you may experience transmission and reception
problems with all the equipment. It is recommended that no other
equipment, except for a regular telephone, share the line with your
machine.
• If your area experiences a high incidence of lightning or power surges, we
recommend that you install surge protectors for both the power and the
telephone lines. Surge protectors can be purchased from your dealer or
telephone and electronic specialty stores.
• When programming emergency numbers and/or making test calls to
emergency numbers, use a non-emergency number to advise the
emergency service dispatcher of your intentions. The dispatcher will give
you further instructions on how to actually test the emergency number.
• This machine may not be used on coin service or party lines.

Replacing the Fitted Plug (for UK Only)
IMPORTANT
The mains lead for this machine is fitted with a standard (BS 1363) 13 amp
plug and has a 13 amp fuse. When you change or examine the fuse, you
must re-fit the correct 13 amp fuse. You then need to replace the fuse cover.
If you have lost the fuse cover, do not use the plug until you have another
fuse cover.
Please contact the people from you purchased the machine.
The 13 amp plug is the most widely used type in the UK and should be
suitable. However, some buildings (mainly old ones) do not have normal 13
amp plug sockets. You need to buy a suitable plug adaptor. Do not remove
the moulded plug.

2 Remove the packing tape from the front, back, and sides
of the machine.
Selecting a Location
Select a level, stable place with adequate space for air
circulation. Allow extra space for opening doors and trays.
The area should be well-ventilated and away from direct
sunlight or sources of heat, cold, and humidity. Do not set the
machine close to the edge of your desk or table.
***.The paper cover is to prevent dust and moisture from
contaminating your paper loaded in the tray. When you need
to open the machine (for example, cleaning inside of the
machine, removing the jammed paper or installing the toner
cartridge), remove the paper cover from your machine.
NOTES:
• Components may differ from country to country.
• You should use the telephone line cord which is supplied
with your machine. If you are replacing it with another
vendor’s, it should be AWG #26 or larger telephone line
cord.
• Power cord must be plugged into a grounded power
socket.

2 Remove the toner cartridge from its bag and remove the
paper protecting the cartridge by pulling the packing tape.
3 Gently roll the cartridge 5 or 6 times to distribute the
toner.
Thoroughly rolling the cartridge will assure maximum
copies per cartridge.
NOTE: 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.
CAUTIONS:
• To prevent damage, do not expose the toner cartridge to
light for more than a few minutes. Cover it with a piece of
paper, if left exposed for more than a few minutes.
• Do not touch the green underside of the toner cartridge. Use
the handle on the cartridge to avoid touching this area.
4 Unfold the toner cartridge handle and grasp it. Insert the
cartridge in the machine until it snaps into place.
NOTE: Carefully insert or pull out the toner cartridge not to
scratch against the printer.
5 Close the front door. Make sure that the door is securely
closed. If the cover is not firmly closed, printing errors
may occur when you print.

3 Paper Handling
This chapter introduces you to the basics of selecting print
materials and loading them into your machine.
This chapter includes:
• Selecting Print Materials
• Loading Paper
• Verifying an Output Location
Selecting Print Materials
You can print on a variety of print materials, such as plain
paper, envelopes, labels, and transparencies. Always use print
materials that meet the guidelines for use with this machine.
See ?$paratext>? on page 10.3. To get the best possible print
quality, use only high-quality copier-grade paper.
When you choose print materials, consider the following:
• Size: You can use any size paper that fits easily within the
paper adjusters of the tray.
• Weight: 16 ~ 24 lb (60 to 90 g/m2 bond) for the tray with
multi-pages feeding, and 16 ~ 43 lb (60 to 165 g/m2
bond) for the manual tray and tray with single page
feeding.
• Brightness: Some papers are whiter than others and
produce sharper, more vibrant images.
• Surface smoothness: The smoothness of the paper
affects how crisp the printing looks on the paper.
CAUTION: Using print materials that dose not conform to the
specifications listed on page 10.2 may cause problems that
may require service. This service is not covered by the
warranty or service agreements.

Guidelines for Paper and Special
Materials
When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other special
material, keep these guidelines in mind:
• Always use paper and other materials that conform with
the specifications listed under ?$paratext>? on
page 10.3.
• Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn
paper can cause paper jams and poor print quality.
• Use only high quality copier grade paper for the best print
quality.
• Avoid paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or a
texture that is too smooth or too rough. Paper jams may
occur.
• Store paper in its ream wrapper until you are ready to
use. Place cartons on pallets or shelves, not on the floor.
Do not place heavy objects on top of the paper, whether
it is packaged or unpackaged. Keep it away from
moisture, or other conditions that can cause it to wrinkle
or curl.
• Store unused materials at temperatures between 15 oC
and 30 oC (59 oF to 86 oF). The relative humidity should
be between 10 % and 70 %.
• During storage, you should use a moisture-proof wrap,
such as a plastic container or bag, to prevent dust and
moisture from contaminating your paper.
• Load special paper types one sheet at a time through the
manual tray or the tray to avoid paper jams.
• Only use materials specifically recommended for use in
laser printers.
• To prevent special materials, such as transparencies and
label sheets from sticking together, remove them as they
print out.
• For envelopes:
Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp and well
creased folds.
Do not use envelopes with clasps and snaps.
Do not use envelopes with windows, coated lining, selfadhesive seals, or other synthetic materials.
Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes.
Only use envelopes recommended for laser printers.
Before loading envelopes in the tray, make sure that they
are undamaged and are not stuck together.
Do not feed stamped envelopes.
• For transparencies:
Place them on a flat surface after removing them from the
machine.
Do not leave them in the 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.
Only use transparencies recommended for use in laser
printers.
Ensure that transparencies are not wrinkled, curled, or
have any torn edges.
• For labels:
Verify that their adhesive material can tolerate a fusing
temperature of 200 oC (392 o F) for 0.1 second.
Make sure that there is no exposed adhesive material
between them. 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 load a sheet of them through the machine more
than once. The adhesive backing is designed for one pass
through the machine.
Do not use labels that are separating from the backing
sheet or are wrinkled, bubbled or otherwise damaged.
Only use labels recommended for laser printers.
• For Card Stock or Custom-sized materials:
Postcards, 3.5 x 5.8 in. (89 x 148 mm) cards and other
custom-sized materials can be printed with this printer.
The minimum size is 3 x 5 in. (76 x 127 mm) and the
maximum size is 8.5 x 14 in. (216 x 356 mm)
Always insert the short-edge into the tray first. If you
want to print in landscape mode, make this selection
through your software. Inserting paper long-edge first
may cause a paper jam.
Do not print on media smaller than 3 in. (76 mm) wide or
5 in. (127 mm) long.
• For preprinted paper:
Letterheads must be printed with heat-resistant ink that
will not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous emissions
when subjected to the printer’s fusing temperature of
200 °C (392 °F) for 0.1 second.
Ink on letterheads must be non-flammable and should not
adversely affect any printer rollers.
Forms and letterheads should be sealed in a moistureproof wrapping to prevent changes during storage.
Before you load preprinted paper as forms and
letterheads, verify that the ink on the paper is dry. During
the fusing process, wet ink can come off preprinted paper.
• Do not use Carbonless paper and Tracing paper. Use of
these types of paper could result in chemical smells and
could damage your machine.

3.3
Loading Paper
Proper paper loading helps prevent paper jams and ensure
trouble-free printing. Do not remove the paper in the tray while
a job is printing. Doing so may cause a paper jam. See
?$paratext>? on page 3.1 for acceptable paper size and
capacity for the tray.
Using the Tray
The tray holds 150 sheets of paper.
Load a stack of paper into the tray and print. For details about
loading paper in the tray, see ?$paratext>? on page 2.3.
To use the special material like envelope, label and card,
remove the stack of plain paper and load one sheet of special
material into the tray.
Using the Manual Tray
When you print a document using your PC and want to check
the print quality after each page is printed, load the paper in
the manual tray and select Manual Feed for Source from the
software application.
1 Load the print material in the tray with the print side up.
Push the print material firmly into the manual tray.
2 Adjust the paper guide against the print material without
bending the material.
3 Select Manual Feed for Source from the software
application, and then select the correct paper size and
type. For details, see Software User’s Guide.
4 Operate printing.
5 The display shows “Add Paper & Press Start” then press
Start on the machine to start feeding.
Printing is started.
6 If you have multiple pages to be printed, the display shows
“Add Paper & Press Start” again. Load the next sheet and
press Start.
Repeat this step for every page to be printed.
NOTES:
• When you print more than 20 envelopes in succession, print
speed may be reduced.
• If you experience jams with card stock feeding, turn the
paper around and try again.
• Manually loading paper and pressing Start to start feeding is
only available with PC printing.
• Because the Manual Feed mode does not print jobs
automatically and continuously, incoming faxes are stored in
memory instead of printing immediately. (Only for SCX4521F/ SCX-4521FR)
• When you press Stop/Clear in the Manual Feed mode, the
print job in progress is canceled.
Verifying an Output Location
The machine has a paper output location which holds 50 sheets
of paper. The output tray collects printed paper face down, in
the order in which the sheets were printed.
NOTE: Pull the paper output extension not to drop the printed
paper.

Receiving Manually Using an
Extension Telephone
This features works best when you are using an extension
telephone connected to the EXT. jack on the back of your
machine. 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 telephone. The
machine receives the document.
Press the buttons slowly in sequence. If you still hear the fax
tone from the remote machine, 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 ?$paratext>? on page 7.2
Receiving Faxes Using the
DRPD Mode
“Distinctive Ring” is a telephone company service which
enables a 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 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 machine plugged into the
EXT. jack. You can easily suspend or change Distinctive Ring
Pattern Detection at any time.
Before using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection option,
Distinctive Ring service must be installed on your telephone line
by the telephone company. To set up Distinctive Ring Pattern
Detection, you will need another telephone line at your
location, or someone available to dial your fax number from
outside.
To set up the DRPD mode:
1 Press Menu until “Fax Setup” appears on the top line of
the display.
2 Press the scroll button ( or ) until you see “Receive
Mode” on the bottom line and press Enter.
3 Press the scroll button ( or ) until you see “DRPD Mode”
on the bottom line and press Enter.
4 When “Set” displays on the bottom line, press Enter.
“Waiting Ring” appears on the display.
5 Call your fax number from another telephone. It is not
necessary to place the call from a fax machine.
6 When your machine begins to ring, do not answer the call.
The machine requires several rings to learn the pattern.
When the machine completes learning, the LCD displays
“End DRPD Setup”.
If the DRPD setup fails, “DRPD Ring Error” appears. Press
Enter when “DRPD Mode” displays and retry from step 3.
7 To return to Standby mode, press Stop/Clear.
When the DRPD feature is set up, the DRPD option is available
in the Receive Mode menu. To receive faxes in the DRPD mode,
you need to set the menu to DRPD; see ?$paratext>? on
page 7.2.
NOTES:
• DRPD must be set up again if you re-assign your fax number,
or connect the machine to another telephone line.
• After DRPD has been set up, call your fax number again to
verify that the machine answers with a fax tone. Then have
a call placed to a different number assigned to that same
line to be sure the call is forwarded to the extension
telephone or answering machine plugged into the EXT. jack.
Receiving Faxes in the Memory
Since your machine is a multi-tasking device, it can receive
faxes while you are making copies or printing. If you receive a
fax while you are copying or printing, your machine stores
incoming faxes in memory. Then, as soon as you finish copying
or printing, the machine automatically prints the fax.

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.
CAUTIONS:
• Cleaning the cabinet of the machine with cleaning materials
containing large amounts of alcohol, solvent, or other strong
substances can discolor or crack the cabinet.
• While cleaning the inside of the machine, be careful not to
touch the transfer roller, located underneath the toner
cartridge. Oil from your fingers can cause print quality
problems.
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. Wait for
the machine to cool down.
2 Open the front door.
3 Pull the toner cartridge out, lightly pushing it down. Set it
on a clean flat surface.
CAUTIONS:
• 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 underside of the toner cartridge. Use
the handle on the cartridge to avoid touching this area.

4 Remove the manual tray by pulling it out.
5 With a dry lint-free cloth, wipe away any dust and spilled
toner from the toner cartridge area and the toner cartridge
cavity.
CAUTION: Do not touch the black transfer roller inside the
machine.
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 Reinsert the manual tray, toner cartridge and close the
door.
8 Plug in the power cord and turn the machine on.
Cleaning the Scan Unit
Keeping the scan unit clean helps ensure the best possible
copies. We suggest that you clean the scan unit at the start of
each day and during the day, as needed.
1 Slightly dampen a soft lint-free cloth or paper towel with
water.
2 Open the document cover.
3 Wipe the surface of the document glass and ADF glass
until it is clean and dry.
4 Wipe the underside of the white document cover and white
bar until it is clean and dry.
5 Close the document cover.
Maintaining the Toner 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
ready for use.
• Do not refill the toner cartridge. The machine warranty
does not cover damage caused by using a refilled
cartridge.
• Store toner cartridges in the same environment as your
machine.
• To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose
it to light for more than a few minutes.
Saving toner
To save toner, press the Toner Save button on the control
panel; see ?$paratext>? on page 2.11. The button backlight
turns on. Using this feature extends the life of the toner
cartridge and reduces your cost per page, but it also reduces
print quality.

Expected Cartridge Life
The life of the toner cartridge depends on the amount of toner
that print jobs require. When printing text at ISO 19752 5%
coverage, a new toner cartridge lasts an average of 3,000
pages. (The original toner cartridge supplied with the machine
lasts an average of 1,000 pages.) The actual number may be
different depending on the print density of the page you print.
If you print a lot of graphics, you may need to change the
cartridge more often.

Maintenance
8.5
Redistributing Toner
When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life, white
streaks or light printing occurs. The LCD displays the warning
message, “[Toner Low]”. You can temporarily reestablish print
quality by redistributing the remaining toner in the cartridge. In
some case, white streaks or light printing still occurs even after
you have redistributed the toner.
1 Open the front door.
2 Pull the toner cartridge out and remove it from the printer.
3 Gently shake the toner cartridge from side to side five or
six times to redistribute the toner.
NOTE: 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.
CAUTION: Do not touch the green underside of the toner
cartridge. Use the handle on the cartridge to avoid touching
this area.
4 Reinstall the cartridge and close the front door. Make sure
that the cover is securely closed. If it is not firmly closed,
printing error may occur when you print.
Replacing the Toner Cartridge
When the display on the control panel shows the warning
message, “[Toner Empty]” the toner cartridge has run out but
continues printing. For the SCX-4521F/ SCX-4521FR, incoming
faxes are saved in memory. At this stage, the toner cartridges
needs to be replaced.
NOTE: You can set the machine to ignore the “[Toner Empty]”
message and to continue printing incoming faxes. See
?$paratext>? on page 8.6.
Remove the old toner cartridge and install a new toner
cartridge. See ?$paratext>? on page 2.2.

Condition Possible cause Suggested solutions 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 ?$paratext>? on
page 8.5. If this does not improve the print quality,
install a new toner cartridge.
• The paper may not meet paper specifications; for
example, the paper is too moist or too rough. See
?$paratext>? on page 10.3.
• If the entire page is light, the print resolution setting is
too low or the toner save mode is on. Adjust the print
resolution and turn the toner save mode off. For
details, see Software User’s Guide and
?$paratext>? on page 2.11, respectively.
• A combination of faded or smeared defects may
indicate that the toner cartridge needs cleaning. See
?$paratext>? on page 8.6.
• The surface of the LSU part inside the machine may be
dirty. Clean the LSU (?$paratext>? on page 8.2).
Contact a service representative.
Toner specs • The paper may not meet specifications; for example,
the paper is too moist or too rough. See ?$paratext>?
on page 10.3.
• The transfer roller may be dirty. Clean the inside of
your machine. See ?$paratext>? on page 8.2.
• The paper path may need cleaning. See ?$paratext>?
on page 8.6.
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 ?$paratext>? on page 10.3.
• The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing processes can
cause some areas to reject toner. Try a different kind or
brand of paper.
• The toner cartridge may be defective. See

Vertical lines If black vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The drum inside the toner cartridge has probably been
scratched. Remove the toner cartridge and install a
new one. See ?$paratext>? on page 8.5.
If white vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The surface of the LSU part inside the machine may be
dirty. Clean the LSU (?$paratext>? on page 8.2).
Contact a service representative.
Gray
background
If the amount of background shading becomes
unacceptable:
• Change to a lighter weight paper. See ?$paratext>? on
page 10.3.
• Check the machine’s environment: very dry (low
humidity) or high humidity (higher than 80% RH)
conditions can increase the amount of background
shading.
• Remove the old toner cartridge and install a new one.
See ?$paratext>? on page 8.5.
Toner smear • Clean the inside of the machine. See ?$paratext>? on
page 8.2.
• Check the paper type and quality. See ?$paratext>? on
page 10.3.
• Remove the toner cartridge and install a new one. See
?$paratext>? on page 8.5.
Vertical
repetitive
defects
If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of the
page at even intervals:
• The toner cartridge may be damaged. If a repetitive
mark occurs on the page, print a cleaning sheet several
times to clean the cartridge; see ?$paratext>? on
page 8.6. After the printout, if you still have the same
problems, remove the toner cartridge and install a new
one. See ?$paratext>? on page 8.5.
• Parts of the machine may have toner on them. If the
defects occur on the back of the page, the problem will
likely correct itself after a few more pages.
• The fusing assembly may be damaged. Contact a
service representative.
• If you use inferior quality paper; see ?$paratext>? on

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 ?$paratext>? on page 10.3.
• If characters are improperly formed and producing a
wavy effect, the scanner unit may need service. For
service, contact a service representative.
Page skew • Ensure that the paper is loaded properly.
• Check the paper type and quality. See ?$paratext>? on
page 10.3.
• 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
?$paratext>? on page 10.3.
• Turn over the stack of paper in the tray. Also try
rotating the paper 180° in the tray.
Wrinkles or

Common Linux Problems
Problem Possible Cause and Solution
The machine
doesn’t print.
• Check if the printer driver is installed in your system.
Open MFP configurator and switch to the Printers tab in
Printers configuration window to look at the list of
available printers. Make sure that your machine is
displayed on the list. If not, please, invoke Add new
printer wizard to set up your device.
• Check if the printer is started. Open Printers
configuration and select your machine on the printers list.
Look at the description in the Selected printer pane. If its
status contains “(stopped)” string, please, press the
Start button. After that normal operation of the printer
should be restored. The "stopped" status might be
activated when some problems in printing occurred. For
instance, this could be an attempt to print document
when MFP port is claimed by a scanning application.
• Check if the MFP port is not busy. Since functional
components of MFP (printer and scanner) share the same
I/O interface (MFP port), the situation of simultaneous
access of different “consumer” application to the same
MFP port is possible. To avoid possible conflicts, only one
of them at a time is allowed to gain control over the
device. The other “consumer” will encounter “device
busy” response. You should open MFP ports configuration
and select the port assigned to your printer. In the
Selected port pane you can see if the port is occupied by
some other application. If this is the case, you should
wait for completion of the current job or should press
Release port button, if you are sure that the present
owner is not functioning properly.
Check if your application has special print option such
as “-oraw”. If “-oraw” is specified in the command
line parameter then remove it to print properly. For
Gimp front-end, select “print” -> “Setup printer” and
edit command line parameter in the command item.
The machine
doesn’t appear
on the
scanners list.
• Check if your machine is attached to your computer.
Make sure that it is connected properly via the USB port
and is turned on.
• Check if the scanner driver for you machine is installed in
your system. Open MFP Configurator, switch to Scanners
configuration, then press Drivers. Make sure that driver
with a name corresponding to your machine's name is
listed in the window.
• Check if the MFP port is not busy. Since functional
components of MFP (printer and scanner) share the same
I/O interface (MFP port), the situation of simultaneous
access of different “consumer” application to the same
MFP port is possible. To avoid possible conflicts, only one
of them at a time is allowed to gain control over the
device. The other “consumer” will encounter “device
busy” response. This can usually happen while starting
scan procedure, and appropriate message box displays.
To identify the source of the problem, you should open
MFP ports configuration and select the port assigned to
your scanner. MFP port's symbol /dev/mfp0 corresponds
to LP:0 designation displayed in the scanners’ options, /
dev/mfp1 relates to LP:1 and so on. USB ports start at /
dev/mfp4, so scanner on USB:0 relates to /dev/mfp4
respectively and so forth sequentially. In the Selected
port pane you can see if the port is occupied by some
other application. If this is the case, you should wait for
completion of the current job or should press Release
port button, if you are sure that the present port's owner
is not functioning properly.
The machine
doesn’t scan.
• Check if a document is loaded into the machine.
• Check if your machine is connected to the computer.
Make sure if it is connected properly if I/O error is
reported while scanning.
• Check if MFP port is not busy. Since functional

I can’t print
when I
installed both
Linux Print
Package (LPP)
and MFP driver
on the same
machine
simultaneously.
• Since both Linux Printer Package and MFP driver make a
symbolic link to “lpr” printing command, which is
commonly used on Unix clones, it is not recommended to
use both package on the same machine.
• If you still want to use both packages simultaneously,
please install the LPP first.
• If you want to uninstall only one of them, please uninstall
both packages and install that one you want to use again.
• If you don’t want to uninstall MFP driver and install it
again, you may make the necessary symbolic link
yourself. Please, log in as root user and invoke the
following command:
ln -sf /usr/local/bin/samsung/slpr /usr/bin/lpr
Can’t scan via
Gimp Frontend.
• Check if Gimp Front-end has “Xsane:Device dialog..” on
the “Acquire” menu. If not, you should install Xsane plugin for Gimp on the your computer. You can find Xsane
plug-in package for Gimp on Linux distribution CD or
Gimp home page. For the detail information, refer to the
Help for Linux distribution CD or Gimp Front-end
application.
If you wish to use other kind of scan application, refer to
the Help for application.
I encounter
error “Cannot
open MFP port
device file”
when printing
a document.
Please avoid changing print job parameters (via SLPR
utility, 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 Linux MFP driver locks MFP port while
printing, the abrupt termination of the driver keeps the port
locked and therefore unavailable for subsequent print jobs.
If this situation occurred, please, try to release the MFP
port.

Paper Specifications
Overview
Your machine accepts a variety of print materials, such as cutsheet paper (including up to 100% recycled fiber content
paper), envelopes, labels, transparencies and custom-size
paper. Properties, such as weight, composition, grain and
moisture content, are important factors affecting the machine’s
performance and the output quality. Paper that does not meet
the guidelines outlined in this user’s guide can cause the
following problems:
• Poor print quality
• Increased paper jams
• Premature wear on the machine.
NOTES:
• Some paper may meet all of the guidelines in this guide 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 paper, insure the paper
meets the requirements specified in this user’s guide.
CAUTION: Using paper that does not meet these
specifications may cause problems, requiring repairs. These
repairs are not covered by the Samsung warranty or service
agreements.

Guidelines for Using Paper
For the best result, use conventional 20 lb (75 g/m2 bond)
paper. Ensure that the paper is of good quality, and free of cuts,
nicks, tears, spots, loose particles, dust, wrinkles, voids, and
curled or bent edges.
If you are unsure of what type of paper you are loading, such
as bond or recycled paper, check the label on the package.
The following problems may cause print quality deviations,
jamming or even damage to the machine:
NOTES:
• Do not use letterhead paper printed with low-temperature
inks, such as those used in some types of thermography.
• Do not use raised or embossed letterhead.
• The machine uses heat and pressure to fuse toner to the
paper. Insure that any colored paper or preprinted forms use
inks that are compatible with this fusing temperature (200
°C or 392 °F for 0.1 second).

Paper Output Capacity
Paper Storage Environment
Paper storage environmental conditions directly affect the feed
operation.
Ideally, the machine and paper storage environment should be
at or near room temperature, and not too dry or humid.
Remember that paper is hygroscopic; it absorbs and loses
moisture rapidly.
Heat works with humidity to damage paper. Heat causes the
moisture in paper to evaporate, while cold causes it to
condense on the sheets. Heating systems and air conditioners
remove most of the humidity from a room. As paper is opened
and used, it loses moisture, causing streaks and smudging.
Humid weather or water coolers can cause the humidity to
increase in a room. As paper is opened and used it absorbs any
excess moisture, causing light print and dropouts. Also, as
paper loses and gains moisture it can become distorted. This
can cause paper jams.
Care should be taken not to purchase more paper than can be
used in a short time (about 3 months). Paper stored for long
periods may experience heat and moisture extremes, which
can cause damage. Planning is important to prevent damage to
large supplies of paper.
Unopened paper in sealed reams can remain stable for several
months before use. Opened packages of paper have more
potential for environment damage, especially if they are not
wrapped with a moisture-proof barrier.
The paper storage environment should be properly maintained
to ensure optimum performance. The required condition is 20

Output Location Capacity
Face-down output tray 50 sheets of 20 lb (75 g/m2 bond) paper
to 24 °C (68 to 75 °F), with a relative humidity of 45 % to 55
%. The following guidelines should be considered when
evaluating the paper’s storage environment:
• Paper should be stored at or near room temperature.
• The air should not be too dry or too humid.
• The best way to store an opened ream of paper is to
rewrap it tightly in its moisture-proof wrapping. If the
machine environment is subject to extremes, unwrap
only the amount of paper to be used during the day’s
operation to prevent unwanted moisture changes.
Envelopes
Envelope construction is critical. Envelope fold lines can vary
considerably, not only between manufacturers, but also within
a box from the same manufacturer. Successful printing on
envelopes depends upon the quality of the envelopes. When
selecting envelopes, consider the following components:
• Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should not
exceed 24 lb (90 g/m2 bond) or jamming may occur.
• Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat
with less than 0.25 in. (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.
• Size: You should only use envelopes within the following
size ranges.
NOTES:
• Load only one sheet of paper at a time to print envelopes.
• You may experience some paper jams when using any media
with a length less than 5.5 in. (140 mm). This may be
caused by paper that has been affected by environmental
conditions. For optimum performance, make sure you are
storing and handling the paper correctly. Please refer to
?$paratext>? on page 10.5.

Specifications
10.6
Envelopes with Double Side Seams
Double side-seams construction has vertical seams at both
ends of the envelope rather than diagonal seams. This style
may be more likely to wrinkle. Be sure the seam extends all the
way to the corner of the envelope as illustrated below.
Envelopes with Adhesive Strips or Flaps
Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one
flap that folds over to seal must use adhesives compatible with
the heat and pressure in the machine. The extra flaps and strips
might cause wrinkling, creasing or even jams and may even
damage the fuser.
Envelope Margins
The following gives typical address margins for a commercial
#10 or DL envelope.
NOTES:
• For the best print quality, position margins no closer than
0.6 in. (15 mm) from the edges of the envelope.
• Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s seams
meet.
Envelope Storage
Proper storage of envelopes helps contribute to print quality.
Envelopes should be stored flat. If air is trapped in an envelope,
creating an air bubble, then the envelope may wrinkle during
printing.
Correct
Incorrect
Type of Address Minimum Maximum
Return address 0.6 in. (15 mm) 2 in. (51 mm)
Delivery address 2 in. (51 mm) 3.5 in. (90 mm)
Labels
CAUTIONS:
• To avoid damaging the machine, use only labels
recommended for laser printers.
• To prevent serious jams, always load one sheet of paper at a
time to print labels.
• Never print on the same sheet of labels more than once and
never print on a partial sheet of labels.
When selecting labels, consider the quality of each component:
• Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at
180°C (356°F), the machine’s fusing temperature.
• Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing
between them. Labels can peel off sheets with spaces
between the labels, causing serious jams.
• Curl: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no more
than 5 in. (13 mm) of curl in any direction.
• Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles or
other indications of separation.
Transparencies
Transparencies used in the machine must be able to withstand
180°C (356°F), the machine’s fusing temperature.
CAUTION: To avoid damaging the machine, use only
transparencies recommended for use in laser printers.

- 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.
• Print All Text Black: When the Print All Text Black option
is checked, all text in your document prints solid black,
regardless of the color it appears on the screen.
• Darken Text: When the Darken Text option is checked, all
text in your document is allowed to print darker than on a
normal document.

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.
2 To save the document as an overlay, access printer
properties. See ?$paratext>? on page 7.
3 Click the Extras tab, and click Edit button in the Overlay
section.

7 Using Your Printer in
Linux
You can use your machine in a Linux environment.
This chapter includes:
• Getting Started
• Installing the MFP Driver
• Using the MFP Configurator
• Configuring Printer Properties
• Printing a Document
• Scanning a Document
Getting Started
The supplied CD-ROM provides you with Samsung’s MFP driver
package for using your machine with a Linux computer.
Samsung’s MFP driver package contains printer and scanner
drivers, providing the ability to print documents and scan
images. The package also delivers powerful applications for
configuring your machine and further processing of the scanned
documents.
After the driver is installed on your Linux system, the driver
package allows you to monitor a number of MFP devices via fast
ECP parallel ports and USB simultaneously. The acquired
documents can then be edited, printed on the same local MFP
or network printers, sent by e-mail, uploaded to an FTP site, or
transferred to an external OCR system.
The MFP driver package is supplied with a smart and flexible
installation program. You don't need to search for additional
components that might be necessary for the MFP software: all
required packages will be carried onto your system and
installed automatically; this is possible on a wide set of the
most popular Linux clones.

4 Click Next.
5 Click Finish.
Using the MFP Configurator
MFP Configurator is a tool primarily intended for configuring
MFP devices. Since an MFP device combines the printer and
scanner, the MFP Configurator provides options logically
grouped for printer and scanner functions. There is also a
special MFP port option responsible for the regulation of access
to an MFP printer and scanner via a single I/O channel.
After installing the MFP driver (see page 27), the MFP
Configurator icon will automatically be created on your desktop.
Opening the MFP Configurator
1 Double-click MFP Configurator on the desktop.
You can also click the Startup Menu icon and select
Samsung MFP and then MFP Configurator.
2 Press each button on the Modules pane to switch to the
corresponding configuration window.
You can use the onscreen help by clicking Help.

MFP Ports Configuration
In this window, you can view the list of available MFP ports,
check the status of each port and release a port that is stalled
in busy state when its owner is terminated for any reason.
• Refresh : Renews the available ports list.
• Release port : Releases the selected port.
Sharing Ports Between Printers and Scanners
Your machine may be connected to a host computer via the
parallel port or USB port. Since the MFP device contains more
than one device (printer and scanner), it is necessary to
organize proper access of “consumer” applications to these
devices via the single I/O port.
The Samsung MFP driver package provides an appropriate port
sharing mechanism that is used by Samsung printer and
scanner drivers. The drivers address their devices via so-called
MFP ports. The current status of any MFP port can be viewed
via the MFP Ports Configuration. The port sharing prevents you
from accessing one functional block of the MFP device, while
another block is in use.
When you install a new MFP printer onto your system, it is
strongly recommended you do this with the assistance of an
MFP Configurator. In this case you will be asked to choose I/O
port for the new device. This choice will provide the most
suitable configuration for MFP’s functionality. For MFP scanners
I/O ports are being chosen by scanner drivers automatically, so
proper settings are applied by default.
Switches to
MPF ports
