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.
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.
• This machine provides magnetic coupling to hearing aids.
You may safely connect this equipment to the telephone network by means of a standard modular jack, USOC RJ-11C.
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.

REGULATORY COMPLIANCE STATEMENTS
Wireless Guidance
Low power, Radio LAN type devices (radio frequency (RF) wireless communication devices), operating in the 2.4 GHz/5 GHz Band, may be
present (embedded) in your printer system. The following section is a general overview of considerations while operating a wireless device.
Additional limitations, cautions, and concerns for specific countries are listed in the specific country sections (or country group sections). The
wireless devices in your system are only qualified for use in the countries identified by the Radio Approval Marks on the system rating label. If
the country you will be using the wireless device in, is not listed, contact your local Radio Approval agency for requirements. Wireless devices
are closely regulated and use may not be allowed.
The power output of the wireless device or devices that may be embedded in your printer is well below the RF exposure limits as known at this
time. Because the wireless devices (which may be embedded into your printer) emit less energy than is allowed in radio frequency safety
standards and recommendations, manufacturer believes these devices are safe for use. Regardless of the power levels, care should be taken
to minimize human contact during normal operation.
As a general guideline, a separation of 20 cm (8 inches) between the wireless device and the body, for use of a wireless device near the body
(this does not include extremities) is typical. This device should be used more than 20 cm (8 inches) from the body when wireless devices are
on and transmitting.
This transmitter must not be collocated or operation in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
Some circumstances require restrictions on wireless devices. Examples of common restrictions are listed below:
Radio frequency wireless communication can interfere with equipment on commercial aircraft. Current aviation regulations require wireless
devices to be turned off while traveling in an airplane. IEEE 802.11 (also known as wireless Ethernet) and Bluetooth communication devices
are examples of devices that provide wireless communication.
In environments where the risk of interference to other devices or services is harmful or perceived as harmful, the option to use a wireless
device may be restricted or eliminated. Airports, Hospitals, and Oxygen or flammable gas laden atmospheres are limited examples where use
of wireless devices may be restricted or eliminated. When in environments where you are uncertain of the sanction to use wireless devices,
ask the applicable authority for authorization prior to use or turning on the wireless device.
Every country has different restrictions on the use of wireless devices. Since your system is equipped with a wireless device, when traveling
between countries with your system, check with the local Radio Approval authorities prior to any move or trip for any restrictions on the use of
a wireless device in the destination country.
If your system came equipped with an internal embedded wireless device, do not operate the wireless device unless all covers and shields are
in place and the system is fully assembled.
Wireless devices are not user serviceable. Do not modify them in any way. Modification to a wireless device will void the authorization to use
it. Contact manufacturer for service.
Only use drivers approved for the country in which the device will be used. See the manufacturer System Restoration Kit, or contact
manufacturer Technical Support for additional information.

Supported operation environments
The following table shows the network environments supported by the
machine:
USING A WIRED NETWORK
You must set up the network protocols on your printer to use it on your
network. This chapter will show you how this is easily accomplished.
Printing Configuration report
You can print a Network Configuration Report from the machine's control
panel that will show the current machine’s network settings. This will help
you to set up a network and troubleshooting problems.
To print the report, you need to press and hold Stop for about 5
seconds.
Please review your machines User's Guide to learn of more details. Using
this Network Configuration Report, you can find your machine’s MAC
address and IP address.
For example:
MAC Address : 00:15:99:41:A2:78
IP Address : 192.0.0.192
Setting IP address
Firstly, you have to set up an IP address for network printing and
managements. In most cases a new IP address will be automatically
assigned by a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol Server) located
on the network.
In a few situations the IP address must be set manually. This is called a
static IP and is often required in corporate Intranets for security reasons.
• DHCP IP assignment: Connect your machine to the network, and wait
a few minutes for the DHCP server to assign an IP address to the
machine. Then, print the Network Configuration Report as explained
above. If the report shows that the IP address has changed, the
assignment was successful. You will see the new IP address on the
report.
• Static IP assignment: Use SetIP program to change the IP address
from your computer.
In an office environment, we recommend that you contact a network
administrator to set this address for you.
IP setting using the SetIP program
The following procedure is based on Windows XP.
This program is for manually setting the network IP address of your
machine using its MAC address to communicate with the machine. MAC
address is a hardware serial number of the network interface and can be
found in the Network Configuration Report.
Installing the program
1. Insert the Printer Software CD-ROM provided with your machine.
When the driver CD runs automatically, close that window.
2. Start a web browser such as Internet Explorer and open the X drive.
(X represents your CD-ROM drive.)
3. Double-click Application > SetIP.
4. Double-click Setup.exe to install this program.
5. Click OK. If necessary, select a language from the drop-down list.
6. Follow the instructions in the window and complete the installation.
Starting the program
1. Connect your machine and the computer using crossover network
cable.
2. Temporarily disable the computer firewall before continuing by doing
the following:
3. From the Windows Start menu, select All Programs > Samsung
Network Printer Utilities > SetIP > SetIP.
4. Click on the icon (third from left) in the SetIP window to open the
TCP/IP configuration window.

server, which allows you to: (A) Configure the network parameters
necessary for the machine to connect to various network environments.
(B) Customize machine settings.
Installing the driver software
You must install the printer driver software for printing. The software
includes drivers, applications, and other user friendly programs.
Make sure that the network setup for your machine is completed. (See
"Setting up the network" on page 21.) All applications should be closed on
your computer before beginning the installation.
If your IP assignment method is DHCP and IP address can be changed
whenever machine in turned on, we recommend you to use the Bonjour
program. Go to the http://developer.apple.com/networking/bonjour/
download/, select the program Bonjour for Windows according to your
computer operating system, and install the program. In case of Mac OS X,
this program might be already installed in your PC. This program will allow
you to fix the network parameter automatically. This Bonjour program does
not support Linux.
If your IP assignment method is static, follow the steps below.
1. Insert the Printer Software CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive. The CDROM should automatically run, and an installation window appears.
2. Click Next.
• If the installation window does not appear, click Start > Run. Type
X:\Setup.exe, replacing “X” with the letter which represents your
drive and click OK.

24 _Getting started
Before starting, please locate the USB cable and the Printer Software
Installation CD-ROM provided with your machine (;printer).
You may need to contact a network administrator or the person who has set
up your wireless network for information regarding the configuration.
Checking your network environments
IP address
Every device in a network is identified by a unique numerical address
called an IP Address. Your machine came with a default IP address of
192.0.0.192, and you can verify this by printing out a Network
Configuration Report. In most cases a new IP address will be
automatically assigned by a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration
Protocol Server) located on the network. In a few situations the IP
address must be set manually. This is called a static IP and is often
required in corporate Intranets for security reasons. We have provided
an easy to use utility program on the Printer Software CD-ROM named
SetIP that can change the address for you. If your machine has a control
panel, you may also change the IP address using the control panel. In
an office environment, we recommend that you contact a network
administrator to set this address for you.
Wireless Networks
• Infrastructure mode
An Infrastructure mode network is the most common wireless
network configuration in a home or office consisting of a wireless
router, or an access point, that connects all the computers and other
networked devices into a common local area network (LAN).
The access point provides a special high speed connection to a
Cable or DSL modem or other wide area network (WAN) device that
connects the LAN to the Internet or a Corporate Intranet. Most
Infrastructure mode networks use a DHCP Server to automatically
assign the IP address and set other network parameters.
If you know that you are connecting to an Infrastructure mode
network with an access point, you may proceed to the Wireless
network setting in infrastructure mode part.
• Ad-hoc mode
An Ad-hoc mode network provides peer to peer communication. In
an Ad-hoc mode network, wireless devices and computers
communicate directly with each other, without using an access point.
They can share files and machines, but may not be able to access
the Internet. The machine receives print jobs from wireless
computers directly.
If you know that you are connecting to an ad-hoc mode network
without an access point, proceed to the Wireless network setting in
Ad-hoc mode part.
Installing the printer on an Ad-Hoc wireless network
If you do not have a Access Point (AP), you may still connect the printer
wirelessly to your computer by setting up an Ad-Hoc wireless network by
following these simple directions. Locate the Printer Sotware installation
CD-ROM supplied with the printer.

USING A WIRELESS NETWORK(CLP-310W, CLP-
315W ONLY)
You must set up the network protocols on your machine to use it on your
network. This chapter will show you how this is easily accomplished.
Before starting, please locate the crossover network cable and the Printer
Software Installation CD-ROM provided with your machine (;printer). You
may need to contact a network administrator or the person who has set up
your wireless network for information regarding the configuration.
If you are already aware of your machine’s IP address configuration and this
IP address is available, you may go to Configuring the machine’s
wireless network part directly. Otherwise you have to follow all steps from
Checking your Network Environments part.
Checking your Network Environments
IP address
Every device in a network is identified by a unique numerical address
called an IP Address. Your machine came with a default IP address of
192.0.0.192, and you can verify this by printing out a Network
Configuration Report. In most cases a new IP address will be
automatically assigned by a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration
Protocol Server) located on the network.
In a few situations the IP address must be set manually. This is called a
static IP and is often required in corporate Intranets for security reasons.
We have provided an easy to use utility program on the Printer Software
CD-ROM named SetIP that can change the address for you.
In an office environment, we recommend that you contact a network
administrator to set this address for you.
Wireless Networks
• Infrastructure mode: An Infrastructure mode network is the most
common wireless network configuration in a home or office
consisting of a wireless router, or an access point, that connects all
the computers and other networked devices into a common local
area network (LAN).
The access point provides a special high speed connection to a
Cable or DSL modem or other wide area network (WAN) device that
connects the LAN to the Internet or a Corporate Intranet. Most
Infrastructure mode networks use a DHCP Server to automatically
assign the IP address and set other network parameters.
If you know that you are connecting to an Infrastructure mode
network with an access point, and the IP address is assigned by a
DHCP server, you may proceed to the Configuring the machine’s
wireless network part after reviewing the following parts on printing
a Network Configuration Report.
If you know that you are connecting to an Infrastructure mode
network with an access point, but it does not have DHCP address
This wireless setting procedure is mainly for Macintosh users.
However, Windows users can also use this procedure too, but it is
recommended to use the easier procedure. (See "Using a
wireless network(windows/CLP-310W, CLP-315W only)" on
page 23.)

assignment, or you are required to set a static IP, proceed to the
Setting IP address part before going to Configuring the
machine’s wireless network part after reviewing the following parts
on printing a Network Configuration Report.
• Ad-hoc mode : An Ad-hoc mode network provides peer to peer
communication. In an Ad-hoc mode network, wireless devices and
computers communicate directly with each other, without using an
access point. They can share files and machines, but may not be
able to access the Internet. The machine receives print jobs from
wireless computers directly.
If you know that you are connecting to an ad-hoc mode network without an
access point, proceed to the Setting IP address part before going to
Configuring the machine’s wireless network part after reviewing the
following parts on printing a Network Configuration Report.
Printing Configuration report
You can print a Network Configuration Report from the machine’s control
panel that will show the current machine’s network settings. This will help
you to set up a network and troubleshooting problems.
To print the report, you need to press and hold Stop for about 5
seconds.
Please review your machines User’s Guide to learn of additional details.
Using this Network Configuration Report, you can find your machine MAC
address and IP address.
For example:
MAC Address : 00:15:99:41:A2:78
IP Address : 192.0.0.192
Setting IP address
Firstly, you have to set up an IP address for network printing and
managements. In most cases a new IP address will be automatically
assigned by a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol Server) located
on the network.
In a few situations the IP address must be set manually. This is called a
static IP and is often required in corporate Intranets for security reasons.
• DHCP IP assignment: Connect your machine to the network, and wait a
few minutes for the DHCP server to assign an IP address to the
machine. (If the access point has an available LAN port, you may
connect your machine directly to the access point.) Then, print the
Network Configuration Report as explained above. If the report shows
that the IP address has changed, the assignment was successful. You
will see the new IP address in the report. Leave the machine attached to
the network.
• Static IP assignment: Use SetIP program to change the IP address
from your computer. If your machine has a control panel, you can also
change IP address using the machine's control panel.
In an office environment, we recommend that you contact a network
administrator to set this address for you.
IP setting using SetIP program
The following procedure is based on Windows XP.
This program is for manually setting the network IP address of your

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 55. 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 55.
- 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
356 mm long.
• In the software application, set margins at least
6.4 mm away from the edges of the material.
Preprinted
paper
• Letterhead must be printed with heat-resistant ink
that will not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous
emissions when subjected to the printer’s fusing
temperature for 0.1 second. Check your machine’s
specification to view the fusing temperature, see
page 55.
• 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.

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
It is possible that colored images may be printed with incorrect colors due to
flawed mixing of toner colors when one of the colored toner cartridges is low
on toner. You can temporarily improve print quality by redistributing the
toner.
• The SmartPanel program window appears on the computer telling you
which color cartridge is low on toner.
1. Press the release button, completely open the front cover.
2. Grasp the handles on the toner cartridge and pull to remove the
cartridge from the machine.
3. Holding both handles on the toner cartridge, thoroughly rock it from side
to side to evenly distribute the toner.
• Samsung’s printer warranty does not cover damage to the
machine caused by the use of a refilled, remanufactured, or nonSamsung brand toner cartridge.
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.

This is not a problem. Just
keep printing.
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 41. 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 31.
• 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 31.
• The paper path may need cleaning. See
"Cleaning the inside" on page 38.
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 31.
• 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 Paper. 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 black vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The imaging unit has probably been
scratched. Remove the imaging unit and
install a new one. See page 42.
If white vertical streaks appear on the page:
• The surface of the LSU part inside the
machine may be dirty. Clean the LSU by

background
If the amount of background shading becomes
unacceptable:
• Change to a lighter weight paper. See
page 31.
• 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 41.
Toner smear • Clean the inside of the machine. See page
38.
• Check the paper type and quality. See page
31.
• Remove the toner cartridge and install a
new one. See page 41.
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
41.
• 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.
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.

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.

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.
Downloaded Fr m ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
58 _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

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.

containing your logo or image.

use in a new page overlay. Position the items exactly as
you wish them to appear when printed as an overlay.

properties. See “Printing a Document” on page 13.

section.

After the driver is installed on your Linux system, the driver
package allows you to monitor a number of machine devices via
fast ECP parallel ports and USB simultaneously.
The Unified Linux 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 Unified
Linux Driver 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.
Installing the Unified Linux
Driver
Installing the Unified Linux Driver
