Default Paper Size


A4, A4R, A3, A5R, B4, B5, B5R, LTR, LTRR, LGL, STMTR, EXEC, COM10, Monarch, DL, ISO-C5, ISO-B5 This setting defines the default paper size used when the paper size cannot be set from the printer driver in the computer, or when no paper source is specified. To select an option, use [ ] or [ ] to select the desired paper size press [OK].

IMPORTANT If you are printing from a computer that does not have the appropriate printer driver for the machine, make sure that the paper loaded in the paper drawer matches the paper size selected for this setting. If paper of the selected size is missing in any of the paper sources, the machine displays an error message on the LCD display and suspends to perform further printing. If no paper source has been selected through the application, the machine automatically selects the default printer setting for the paper size. (See Chapter 3, Useful Functions and Settings, in the Reference Guide.)

Using the Machine as a Printer

To select an option, use [

] or [ ] to select the desired paper size press [OK].

IMPORTANT The 2-Sided Printing mode is available only when the optional Duplex Unit-A1 is attached. To perform 2-Sided Printing from a computer that is connected to the machine with a USB cable, you must enable the optional Duplex Unit-A1 from the printer driver. For help, see Enabling the Duplex Unit-A1, on p. 1-7. NOTE In the 2-Sided Printing mode, you can use either the paper drawers or stack bypass as the paper source, with the A4, A3, A5R, B4, B5, B5R, LTR, LGL, STMTR, or EXEC paper loaded. In the 2-Sided Printing mode, you can use the 64 g/m2 to 90 g/m2 paper. When printing on letterhead paper, or paper with a logo (such as a cover sheet), pay attention to the printing surface as illustrated below. - If the paper is fed from a paper drawer, the printing surface should be face down.

- If the paper is fed from the stack bypass, the printing surface should be face up.

You can switch the paper feed method for paper loaded in the machine. (See

Chapter 3, Useful Functions and Settings, in the Reference Guide.)

Error Time Out


Off, On (1 to 300 sec); 15 Sec The Error Time Out setting enables the machine to discard a print job that remains in the machines memory after a specified period of time. This setting is useful when the data for the current job has some error and prevents the machine from performing further printing. In this case, the machine will not receive other print commands because it performs printing in the chronological order; the first job received is printed first, then the second job received printed next, etc. If the Error Time Out setting is enabled, the current job will be discarded automatically in the specified period of time. For example, if <Error Time Out> is set to On and 20 sec, the data for the current job will be erased from the machines memory 20 seconds after the machine starts processing the data. If <Error Time Out> is set to Off, the machine will not discard jobs automatically. IMPORTANT If a job that consists of a large amount of data is sent from a computer, the function may cause the machine to end a print job before the complete data is received. In this case, set a longer error time out period (in seconds). If <Off> is selected, you will not be able to make copies until print jobs that use the Staple mode are complete.

Using the Machine as a Printer

NOTE Rotate modes are not available if the machine is equipped with the optional Finisher-U2. To use the Staple or Offset mode, the optional Finisher-U2 must be attached. Rotate + Group and Rotate + Collate are available for selection if the paper size is A4, A4R, B5, B5R, LTR, or LTRR. If Rotate + Group or Rotate + Collate is selected, part of the print image may be cut off when the image is rotated. You need to load the same size paper as the original in the paper drawers in both landscape and portrait positions. If you do not, all the sheets will be printed in the orientation that the loaded paper is in. Offset + Group and Offset + Collate are available for the following paper sizes: A4, A4R, A3, B4, B5, LTR, LTRR, LGL, or 11" 17". When you are stapling paper in landscape orientation, the image orientation and the staple position may not match. The Staple mode is available for selection if the paper size is A4, A4R, A3, B4, B5, LTR, LTRR, LGL, or 11" 17". The maximum number of sheets that can be stapled is 30 for A4R, A3, B4, LTRR, LGL, and 11" 17", and 50 for A4, B5, and LTR. If the number of sheets is greater than the limit, they will not be stapled.

2-2

Printing Problems

Printing does not start. Cause 1 Output tray is full of paper during the print job. (When Inner 2 Way Tray-E2 is set up, the selected tray is full of paper.) Remove the paper in the tray. The machine and host computer are not properly connected. Check the cable connection between the host computer and the machine. (See Chapter 1, Before You Start Using This Machine, in the Users Guide.) A failure occurred in the machine or an optional device. Take appropriate measures according to the message on the LCD display. The paper size set in the drawer is different from the paper size you have set up in the application software. Or an appropriate paper size you have set for enlarging or reducing the copy is not set.

Remedy Cause 2 Remedy

2
Troubleshooting

Cause 3 Remedy Cause 4

Remedy 1 Change the paper in the selected drawer to the paper size you have set in the application software (or to the size you have set for enlarging/reducing copy). Then print it again. Remedy 2 Select the drawer with the appropriate paper size you have set up in the application software (or to the size you have set for enlarging/reducing copy). Then print it again. Cause 5 Remedy Paper in the drawer or the stack bypass has run out. Load more paper.

The machine does not work. Cause Remedy There is a problem with the machine or the software. Look at the message on the LCD display and act accordingly.

You cannot print a job or store a job. Cause The total number of pages in all jobs has exceeded the limit which can be processed.

Remedy 1 Delete other processes, cancel other jobs being processed, or wait until those jobs are finished, then print again. Remedy 2 Divide the job, then print again.

Printing Problems

2-3

Paper excessively curled after coming out of the machine. Cause Remedy You may be using paper that curls too easily. Ensure that the paper you are using meets the specifications. (See Chapter 8, Appendix, in the Reference Guide.) Remove the paper stack, turn it over, reload in the drawer and try again. (See Chapter 2, Basic Operations, in the Reference Guide.)

2
Troubleshooting

Print Problems
Printer not using the font you want. Cause Remedy You have specified a font that is not available. Check whether the font you specified is available with the machine. (See Symbol Sets Supported, on p. 3-3.)

One edge of the document is cut off. Cause Remedy You are trying to print something outside the printable area of the page. Use your software application to adjust the margins of the page. Check and ensure that your software application is not trying to print graphics or text outside the printable area. (See the application software manual.)

High jam rates, incorrect feeding, or multiple sheet feed errors. Cause Remedy You may be using unsuitable paper. Always use paper that is suitable for the machine. (See Chapter 2, Basic Operations, in the Reference Guide.)

Printing garbled text. Cause 1 If different portions of the text are garbled every time you print, the interface cable may be too long, and spurious noise is corrupting the data. Using a USB cable of 3 meters or shorter is recommended. If your USB cable is longer than this, replace it with a shorter one. The machine is plugged into an outlet shared with another electrical device capable of generating noise, such as a photocopier, shredder or air conditioner. Plug the machine into a different outlet or consult a qualified technician to install a noise filter.
