Your printer and supplies were designed and tested to meet strict safety requirements. These include safety agency examination, approval, and compliance with established environmental standards.

Your attention to the following safety guidelines will help to ensure the continued safe operation of your printer.

Use the materials and supplies specifically designed for your printer. The use of unsuitable materials may result in poor performance and possibly a hazardous situation.

Follow all warnings and instructions marked on, or supplied with, the printer.

Place the printer in a dust free area where the temperature range is 41 to 95oF (5 to 35oC) and the relative humidity is 15 to 85%.

Choose a location for the printer with sufficient space around it for operation and maintenance.

Place the printer in an area where there is adequate space for ventilation and servicing. The recommended spacing is 10 in. (25cm) behind the printer, 10 in.

(25 cm) on either side of the printer, 24 in. (61 cm) in front of the printer and 30 in. (75 cm) above the printer.

Do not subject your printer to severe changes in temperature and/or humidity.

Operational Safety

Do not place the printer near a heat source or in direct sunlight.

Do not place the printer in line with the cold air flow from an air-conditioningsystem.

Place the printer on a level, solid surface with adequate strength for the weight of the machine. The weight of the printer without any packing materials is 99-105lbs.(45-48kg).

If you plan to move the printer, always make sure that the print cartridge carrier is in its rest position. To ensure this, Power Off your printer before you Power Off your computer.

Take care not to drop your printer.

Repack your printer in its original carton, whenever possible, to transport or ship it. Be sure to remove the toner cartridge before packing the printer.

Frequent operation of the Power switch is not recommended.

Do not Power Off the printer while printing.

Do not move the printer while printing.

Introduction

Introduction

In this chapter you will become familiar with the features of your printer and learn where to locate specific printer parts.

Before you use your printer, make sure that you perform all the steps outlined in the Quick Install Guide that came with the printer and install the necessary cables.

Your printer may have one or more optional features installed. First verify your exact equipment options before proceeding further. If you see features described in this section that are not available with the equipment you have, you can easily add them yourself. For more information, see the separate Supplies/Options Guide provided with your printer.

There are two different printer configurations:

The tabletop configuration.

The console configuration (sitting on top of the optional 2,500 Sheet Feeder).

Samples of each configuration are shown later in this chapter; however, the figures throughout this guide may show either configuration when illustrating a feature or procedure.

Printer Features

Printer Features

 

Your printer has many special features that allow you to

 

achieve the results you need for your specific print job.

 

Features vary slightly according to the options you are

 

using and the memory installed in the printer. This

 

section will help you become familiar with your printer’s

 

features and capabilities.

Paper Handling

Your printer has several paper input source and paper

 

output options as described below. For a listing of

 

supported media types and sizes, refer to “Acceptable media

 

sizes and capacities for input trays” (page 2-4) and

 

“Acceptable media sizes and capacities for output bins”

 

(page 2-6).

 

Standard Input Sources

 

The printer comes with three standard input sources:

 

• Tray 1 (500 sheets)

 

• Tray 2 (500 sheets)

 

• Bypass Feeder (50 sheets)

 

Input Options

 

Two input options are available:

 

• The 2,500 Sheet Feeder consists of one 500 sheet tray

 

and two 1,000 sheet trays, increasing the total input

 

capacity to 3,500 sheets.

 

• The 100 Envelope Feeder holds 100 envelopes. It

 

replaces the 50 Sheet Bypass Feeder.

Printer Features

Standard Output

The printer comes with two standard output destinations.

The 200 Sheet Face-up Bin holds up to 200 sheets of Letter/A4 paper.

The 500 Sheet Face-down Bin with offset capability holds up to 500 sheets of paper and can offset print jobs.

Output Options

Two additional output destinations are available.

The 10-bin Mailbox/Collator sits on top of theFace-downBin. Output can be directed to any one of its 10 bins, and each bin has a capacity of 100 sheets of 20 lb. paper. There are two different Mailbox/Sorter modes:

Mailbox Mode: Each mailbox bin can be addressed individually using the job destination functionality contained in the printer driver.

Sorter Destination Mode: The mailbox works like a copier sorter when multiple sets are printed. When up to 10 sets are requested, the first set is sent to Bin 1, the second set to Bin 2, and so on.

If more than 10 sets are selected, the entire job is sent to the Face-downBin.

Printer Features

Automatic Tray

Sequencing

2000 Sheet Finisher can be installed only on console versions of the printer (i.e., versions which have the 2,500 Sheet Feeder). It has three output bins with a total maximum capacity of 2,000 unstapled sheets, up to 667 unstapled sheets per bin. There is stapling capability for all three bins. Stapled output is delivered face down.

The stapler can staple sets of up to 50 sheets. It has three stapling positions.

The customer-replaceablestapling cartridge contains 5,000 staples.

Duplex Printing

You can print two-sideddocuments when you install the Duplex Module option.

Refer to the Supplies/Options Guide for information about ordering printer input and output options.

The printer allows you to set automatic tray sequencing for jobs. When an input tray runs out of paper, the printer automatically switches to another tray (if another tray is loaded with the same size and type paper). That means you don't have to load paper as often. You can also install the optional 2,500 Sheet Feeder (with one 500 sheet tray and two 1,000 sheet trays) to extend your printing capacity.

1-6User Guide

Printer Features

Connectivity The printer contains the following standard interfaces for connecting to a host computer or network:

IEEE 1284 Parallel

Universal Serial Bus (USB)

10/100Base-TEthernet Optional interfaces:

10Base2 Ethernet

Token Ring

RS232 Serial

Installing an optional network interface disables the onboard 10/100Base-TEthernet interface. Removing an optional network interface enables the on board 10/100Base-TEthernet functionality again.

For information about supported network environment and protocols, refer to the Technical Information Guide on your Product CD.

Chapter 1: Getting to Know Your Printer 1-7

Printer Features

Page Description

Languages

Edge to Edge Printing

Automatic Language

Sensing and

Switching

Your printer includes these Page Description Languages (PDLs):

An emulation of HP PCL 5e

An emulation of HP PCL 6

An emulation of HP PJL

Adobe PostScript 3

You can print PostScript and PCL Emulation jobs all the way to the edge of the page. However, there is a 4 mm border on all edges, with all paper sizes, where print quality cannot be guaranteed.

Edge to Edge printing may be selected via the Control Panel for PCL jobs or via print drivers for both PCL and PostScript jobs. Note that selecting this feature will cause PCL jobs printing to be shifted up to the top of the page and left to the edge of the page.

The printer can process both PCL and PostScript jobs. When the printer's Language Sensing option is on, the printer samples the incoming data stream to determine which language the print job requires. The printer then switches to the proper interpreter for that job.

Language Sensing can be set individually for each port, or protocol within a port, from the Parallel, Serial, USB, Ethernet, Token Ring, and Novell Menus by setting the appropriate PDL setting as the default.

With the Language Sensing option on, the printer automatically samples each print job and switches to the appropriate processing language.
