Setting up and using the home
screen applications

Accessing the Embedded Web Server

The Embedded Web Server is the printer Web page that lets you view
and remotely configure printer settings even when you are not
physically near the printer.

1

Obtain the printer IP address:

From the printer control panel home screen

From the TCP/IP section in the Network/Ports menu

By printing a network setup page or menu settings page, and
then finding the TCP/IP section

Note: 

An IP address appears as four sets of numbers separated

by periods, such as 

123.123.123.123

.

2

Open a Web browser, and then type the printer IP address in the
address field.

.

Note: 

If you are using a proxy server, then temporarily disable it

to load the Web page correctly.

Activating the home screen applications

For detailed information about configuring and using the home screen
applications, contact the place where you bought the printer.

Background and Idle Screen

Icon

Description

The application lets you customize the
background and idle screen of your printer
home screen.

To change the background of the printer home screen using the printer
control panel, do the following:

1

From the home screen, navigate to:

Change Background

 > select background to use

2

.

Forms and Favorites

Icon

Description

The application helps you simplify and
streamline work processes by letting you
quickly find and print frequently used online
forms directly from the home screen. For
example, you can print the latest version of a
form exactly when you need it. This eliminates
inventories of printed forms that can easily
become outdated.

Note: 

The printer must have permission to

access the network folder, FTP site, or Web
site where the bookmark is stored. From the
computer where the bookmark is stored,
use sharing, security, and firewall settings to
allow the printer at least a 

read

 access. For

help, see the documentation that came with
your operating system.

To configure Forms and Favorites, do the following:

1

From the Embedded Web Server, click 

Settings

 > 

Device

Solutions

 >

slide is displayed, and images can be loaded
either from a flash drive or through the printer
Embedded Web Server.

Remote Operator Panel

This application shows the printer control panel on your computer
screen and lets you interact with the printer control panel, even when
you are not physically near the printer. From your computer screen,
you can view the printer status, release held print jobs, create

Loading paper and specialty
media

Setting the paper size and type

The Paper Size setting is automatically sensed according to the position
of the paper guides in each tray except in the standard 150

sheet tray

(Tray 1) and in the multipurpose feeder. The Paper Size setting for Tray
1 is set manually via the wheel on the tray, while the Paper Size setting
for the multipurpose feeder is set in the Paper Size menu.

From the home screen, navigate to:

 > 

Paper Menu

 > 

Paper Size/Type

 > select a tray > select the paper

size or type > 

Only Tray 1 has Plain Paper as the factory default Paper Type setting.
Custom 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 are the default settings for the other trays.

Loading the standard or optional
550

sheet tray

The printer has a standard 150

sheet (Tray 1) and 250

sheet tray (Tray

2), and it may have one or more optional 550

sheet trays. All 550

sheet

trays support the same paper sizes and types.

CAUTION—POTENTIAL INJURY: 

To reduce the risk of

equipment instability, load each paper drawer or tray
separately. Keep all other drawers or trays closed until
needed.

1

Pull the tray out.

Notice the size indicators at the bottom of the tray. Use these
indicators to help position the guides.

2

Make sure to release the width guide lock at the rear of the tray.
Squeeze and then slide the width guide to the correct position for
the paper size you are loading.

1

Note: 

Always use the width guide lock at the rear of the tray to

prevent the margins from being knocked out of adjustment.

3

Squeeze and then slide the length guide to the correct position for
the paper size you are loading.

4

Flex the sheets back and forth to loosen them. Do not fold or crease
the paper. Straighten the edges on a level surface.

5

Load the paper stack with the recommended print side faceup.

Notes:

If the paper is longer than A4, then load it in short

edge

orientation.

If the paper is shorter than A4, then load it in long

edge

orientation.

Make sure the paper is below the maximum fill line located
on the edge of the paper tray. Overloading the tray can
cause paper jams and possible printer damage.

Long

edge orientation

Short

edge orientation

6

Adjust both the width and length guides to lightly touch the edge
of the paper stack. Make sure the paper fits loosely in the tray, lies
flat, and is not bent or wrinkled.

7

Turn the wheel clockwise to set the paper size.

8

Lock the width guide.

9

Insert the tray.

10

From the printer control panel, verify the Paper Size and Paper Type
for the tray based on the paper you loaded.

Loading the multipurpose feeder

The multipurpose feeder can hold several sizes and types of print
media, such as transparencies, labels, card stock, and envelopes. It can
be used for single-page or manual printing, or as an additional tray.

The multipurpose feeder can hold approximately:

50 sheets of 75

g/m

2

 (20

lb) paper

10 envelopes

20 transparencies

Note: 

Do not add or remove paper or specialty media when the

printer is printing from the multipurpose feeder or when the printer
control panel indicator light is blinking. Doing so may cause a jam.

1

Pull down the multipurpose feeder door.

2

Gently pull the extension until it is fully extended.

3

Flex the sheets of paper or specialty media back and forth to loosen
them. Do not fold or crease them. Straighten the edges on a level
surface.

Warning—Potential Damage: 

Never use envelopes with stamps,

clasps, snaps, windows, coated linings, or self

stick adhesives.

These envelopes may severely damage the printer.

5

Adjust the width guide to lightly touch the edge of the stack. Make
sure the paper or specialty media fits loosely in the multipurpose
feeder, lies flat, and is not bent or wrinkled.

6

From the printer control panel, set the Paper Size and Paper Type
for the multipurpose feeder (MP Feeder Size and MP Feeder Type)
based on the paper or specialty media loaded.

Linking and unlinking trays

Linking trays

Tray linking is useful for large print jobs or for printing multiple copies.
When one linked tray is empty, paper feeds from the next linked tray.
When the Paper Size and Paper Type settings are the same for any
trays, the trays are automatically linked. The Paper Size setting is
automatically sensed according to the position of the paper guides in
each tray except Tray 1 and the multipurpose feeder. The Paper Size
setting for the multipurpose feeder must be set manually from the
Paper Size menu. The Paper Type setting must be set for all trays from
the Paper Type menu. The Paper Type menu and the Paper Size menu
are both available from the Paper Size/Type menu.

Unlinking trays

Note: 

Trays that do not have the same settings as any other tray are

not linked.

Change one of the following tray settings:

Paper Type

Paper Type names describe the paper characteristics. If the name
that best describes your paper is used by linked trays, assign a
different Paper Type name to the tray, such as Custom Type [x], or
define your own custom name.

Paper Size

Load a different paper size to automatically change the Paper Size
setting for a tray. Paper Size settings for the multipurpose feeder
are not automatic; they must be set manually from the Paper Size
menu.

Warning—Potential Damage: 

Do not assign a Paper Type name that

does not accurately describe the type of paper loaded in a tray. The
temperature of the fuser varies according to the specified Paper
Type. Prints may not be properly processed if an inaccurate Paper
Type is selected.

Creating a custom name for a paper type

If the printer is on a network, you can use the Embedded Web Server
to define a name other than Custom Type [x] for each of the custom
paper types loaded into the printer.

1

Type the printer IP address into the address field of your Web
browser.

Note: 

If you do not know the IP address of the printer, then you

can:

View the IP address on the printer control panel in the TCP/IP
section under the Networks/Ports menu.

Print a network setup page or the menu settings pages and
locate the IP address in the TCP/IP section.
