Configuring input trays

When input trays are configured correctly, the printer automatically uses the correct input tray based on media type and size. Note Setting the media type is necessary for best print quality on envelopes, paper heavier than 24 up to 28 lb (90 to 105 g m2) bond paper, and paper heavier than 28 lb (105 g m2) bond. For example, tray 2 could contain letterhead tray 3, plain legal-sized paper and the 2,000-sheet input unit, plain letter-sized paper. If the trays are configured correctly, when you...

Selecting the mode for tray

Tray 1 has two modes FIRST mode and CASSETTE mode. FIRST mode is the default mode for tray 1. In FIRST mode, tray 1 functions as a multipurpose tray. When tray 1 is in FIRST mode, specify the media type and size in the printer driver. The printer looks first for media loaded in tray 1. If the correct width of media is loaded in tray 1, the printer prints from tray 1. If the printer senses that the media in tray 1 is a different size than the media specified in the printer driver, then the...

Fan motors FM1 FM2 and FM3

The printer contains three exhaust fans, all of which use DC brushless motors. Table 33 describes when each of the fans operates and at what speed each operates. Power Save or power off < 30 minutes Power Save or power off > 30 minutes *FM1 contains a thermistor, and the fan speed changes according to the temperature inside the printer.

Color selection process

The user selects the color in the application, but the operating system might convert or modify some characteristics of the color before sending the information to the printer driver. The printer driver might also modify color characteristics depending upon the selected output mode. Any color characteristics not addressed by the printer driver or applications are set to the printer default. The default color might not match the color the user selected. Some applications (such as Adobe...

Action

1 Verify the correct size media (width and length) are loaded in tray 1. 2 Verify the paper guides are set correctly. 3 Load the requested size media in tray 1. Or, press Go to print on the default size. 4 Verify that the media width sensor on the paper guides are working properly. 5 Reconnect connector J1701 on the tray 1 width detection PCA, relay connector J33, and connector J208 on the controller board. 6 Replace the tray 1 pick-up assembly. The printer was expecting one type of medium to...

Fusing and delivery unit

The upper and lower rollers in the fuser and the face-up and facedown delivery rollers are driven by the main motor (M4). Paper separated from the transfer drum is fed into the fuser and delivered from the unit via the fusing roller and the fusing delivery roller. The fusing delivery sensor detects paper delivered from the fuser. The printer has a left (face-up) output bin and a top (face-down) output bin, and diverts the media to the output bins using the face-up flapper. When the face-up...

Color balance adjustment

CAUTION Adjusting the color balance changes the printer's calibration. Because this procedure adjusts parameters within the printer hardware, it will affect all print jobs. The printer automatically recalibrates the color settings. However, you can adjust the color manually from the default settings by changing the densities of the four toners black, cyan, magenta, and yellow . Changing the Detail Half-tone Adjust and Smooth Half-tone Adjust allow you to independently adjust the color of...

Automatic overhead transparency detection

The printer enters overhead transparency OHT mode when the user selects to print on transparencies through the printer driver or by selecting OHT as the media type at the printer control panel. The OHT sensors PS1801 and PS1802, see figure 57 on page 184 are installed in front of the registration roller to detect transparencies even if the user has not set the media type at the printer control panel. The controller board monitors these sensors to execute OHT detection. PS1801 and PS1802 consist...
