Finding information about the printer

The Quick Reference Guide contains instructions on adding your printer to a wireless network, setting up a fax connection, and accomplishing common printer tasks like printing, copying, scanning, and faxing. It also includes information on troubleshooting printer setup issues as well as solving basic networking and faxing problems.

Note: Some functions are available only in select printer models.

For additional information, see the following:

Minimizing your printer's environmental impact

We are committed to protecting the environment and are continually improving our printers to reduce their environmental impact. By selecting certain printer settings or tasks, you may be able to reduce your printer's environmental impact even further.

Conserving energy

Activate Eco-Mode. This feature sets the screen brightness to low and sets the printer to change to Sleep mode after the printer is left idle for 10 minutes.

Select the lowest Sleep timeout. The Sleep feature puts the printer in a minimum power standby mode after the printer has been idle for a set amount of time (the Sleep timeout).

Share your printer. Wireless/network printers allow you to share a single printer among multiple computers, thus conserving energy and other resources.

Conserving paper

Print more than one page image on one side of the paper. The Pages per Sheet feature allows you to print multiple pages on one sheet. You can print up to 16 page images on one side of a sheet of paper.

Print on both sides of the paper. Duplexing lets you print on both sides of the paper manually or automatically (depending on your printer model).

Preview print jobs before printing. Use the preview features found in Toolbars, the Print or Print Preview dialog, or the printer display (depending on your printer model).

Use recycled paper.

Reduce the margins of documents to be printed.

Scan and save. To avoid printing multiple copies, you can scan documents or photographs and save them to a computer program, application, or flash drive for presentation.

Conserving ink

Use Quick Print or Draft Mode. These modes can be used to print documents using less ink than normal and are ideal for printing documents that are mostly text.

Use font types and font settings that requires less ink. Most programs or applications let you adjust the darkness of the colors.

Use high yield cartridges. Inks in high yield cartridges allow you to print more pages.

Recycling

Return ink cartridges for reuse or recycling through the Lexmark Cartridge Collection Program. To

return an ink cartridge, go to www.lexmark.com/recycle. Follow the instructions to request a postage paid bag.

Recycle the product packaging.

Recycle your old printer instead of throwing it away.

Recycle paper from discarded print jobs.

Use recycled paper.

To read the Lexmark Environmental Sustainability Report, see www.lexmark.com/environment.

Note: Your printer may not come with some of these programs or some of the functions of these programs, depending on the features of the printer that you purchased.

Printer models

The installation software CD that came with your printer works for the following printer models:

About your printer

Printer features

Depending on the model, your printer comes with features that will help you manage and accomplish printing and imaging tasks:

Wireless or Ethernet networking—Printand scan from anywhere in your home or office over a secure wireless or Ethernet network, as well as share the printer among multiple computers.

Intuitive touch screen—Usethe full featured color touch screen for fast, easy access to all the printer menus. The large screen also allows you to view and print photos directly from your digital camera or memory device without using a computer.

Print—Printdocuments and PDFs quickly from a computer or from a USB flash drive. Built in two sided printing lets you save money and the environment.

Copy—Copydocuments and photos with one touch, computer free black or color copying. Enjoy 25% to 400% reduction and enlargement capacity.

Scan—Scandocuments and photos fast and easily with the high resolution scanner. Easily scan to a memory device or to multiple laptops or computers over a secure wireless network with up to 1200 dpi optical resolution.

Fax—Dostandalone black and color faxing at 33.6Kbps modem speed. Other fax features include 99 speed dials, automatic redial, junk fax blocking, and caller ID.

Photo printing—Printhigh quality, long lasting photos directly from digital memory cards, PictBridge enabled digital cameras, or USB flash drives.

SmartSolutions—Simplifyprinter tasks that you frequently repeat by creating and customizing your printer solutions. Using the SmartSolutions toolkit on the Web, you can choose the printer tasks that you often perform, apply your custom settings, and download them to your printer as shortcuts that you can easily access anytime. You can also customize your printer with solutions that display your online calendars, online photo albums, RSS feeds, and more.

Shortcuts—Savea set of frequently used printer settings available for a given task and then assign a shortcut name and shortcut number to it. When you want to perform a task with those settings, you can simply select the shortcut number on the printer instead of going through the usual process of adjusting the settings and options.

Eco Mode—Saveenergy by activating Eco Mode. It automatically dims the printer display light and puts the printer into Sleep mode after a specified period of inactivity.

Maintaining ink cartridges

In addition to the following tasks that you can perform, your printer performs an automatic maintenance cycle every week if it is plugged into a properly grounded, working electrical outlet. It will briefly come out of Sleep mode or will temporarily turn on if it is turned off.

Aligning the printhead

If the characters or lines on your printed image appear jagged or wavy, then you may need to align the printhead.

1Load plain paper.

2From the printer control panel, navigate to:

> Setup> OK >Maintenance> OK > Align Printer> OK

An alignment page prints.

Note: Do not remove the alignment page until printing is finished.

If you aligned the cartridges to improve print quality, then print your document again. If print quality has not improved, then clean the printhead nozzles.

Cleaning the printhead nozzles

If you have not been using the printer for a long period, then you may need to clean the printhead nozzles to improve the quality of your prints. Keep your printer plugged to a properly grounded, working electrical outlet to allow it to perform automatic maintenance cycles.

Notes:

Cleaning the printhead nozzles uses ink, so clean them only when necessary.

Deep cleaning uses more ink, so try the Clean Printhead option first to save ink.

If the ink levels are too low, you must replace the ink cartridges before you can clean the printhead nozzles.

1Load paper.

2From the printer control panel, navigate to:

> Setup> OK > Maintenance> OK

3Press the up or down arrow button to scroll to Clean Printhead orDeep Clean Printhead, and then pressOK .

A cleaning page prints.
