You can print on a variety of print media, such as plain paper, envelopes,

labels, and transparencies. Always use print media that meet the guidelines

for use with your machine. Print media that does not meet the guidelines

outlined in this user’s guide may cause the following problems:

Poor print quality

Increased paper jams

Premature wear on the machine.

Properties, such as weight, composition, grain, and moisture content, are

important factors that affect the machine’s performance and the output

quality. When you choose print materials, consider the following:

The type, size and weight of the print media for your machine are

described later in this section.

Desired outcome: The print media you choose should be appropriate for

your project.

Brightness: Some print media are whiter than others and produce

sharper, more vibrant images.

Surface smoothness: The smoothness of the print media affects how

crisp the printing looks on the paper.

Be careful not to break the scan glass. You may get hurt.

Be careful not to let the scan cover fall over your hands. You may

get hurt.

When scanning or copying, do not look at the light inside the

scanner. It is harmful for your eyes and it can be dangerous.

Leaving the scanner lid open while copying may affect copy quality

and toner consumption.

Dust on the scanner glass may cause black spots on the printout.

Always keep it clean.

If you are copying a page from a book or magazine, lift the scanner

lid until its hinges are caught by the stopper and then close the lid.

If the book or magazine is thicker than 30 mm, start copying with

the lid open.

Some print media may meet all of the guidelines in this section 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 print media, ensure that it

meets the requirements specified in this user’s guide.

Using print media that does not meet these specifications may cause

problems, requiring repairs. Such repairs are not covered by

Samsung’s warranty or service agreements.

Make sure not to use the inkjet photo paper with this machine. It
could cause damage to the machine.
