  caution:
If you change the link setting, network communications with the print server and network device might be lost.
Auto (default): The print server uses auto-negotiation to configure itself with the highest link speed and communication mode allowed. If auto-negotiation fails, either 100TX HALF or 10TX HALF is set depending on the detected link speed of the hub/switch port. (A 1000T half-duplex selection is not supported.)
10T Half: 10 Mbps, half-duplex operation.
10T Full: 10 Mbps, Full-duplex operation.
100TX Half: 100 Mbps, half-duplex operation.
100TX Full: 100 Mbps, full-duplex operation.
100TX Auto: Limits auto-negotiation to a maximum link speed of 100 Mbps.
1000TX Full: 1000 Mbps, full-duplex operation.

  note:
The stapler buffer may or may not be used depending on the selected media type or on the sensed media type, if Audodetect or Autosense Mode is enabled.
If the Normal setting is enabled, the engine speed will be normal by using the stapler buffer whenever possible.
If the Alternate 1 setting is enabled, and the engine is in Autodetect or Autosense Mode, the engine slows down to prevent jams. If the product is NOT in Autosense Mode, the engine performs at normal speed, using the stapler buffer whenever possible.
If the Alternate 2 setting is enabled, the engine always slows down to prevent jams, never using the stapler buffer.

Alternate 1
Alternate 2
Alternate 3
If you are seeing a faint image of the page repeated at the bottom of the page or on the following page, you should first make sure the Paper Type and Print Mode settings are correct for the type of paper you are using. If you continue to see ghost images on your print jobs, set the Fuser Temp feature to one of the Alternate settings . Try the Alternate 1 setting first and see if it solves the problem. If you continue to see the problem, try Alternate 2 and then Alternate 3. With the Alternate 2 and Alternate 3 settings you may see an extra delay between jobs.
Tray 1
Normal (default)
Alternate
If you are seeing marks on the back side of the paper when printing from Tray 1, set the mode to Alternate. This increases the frequency of the cleaning cycle.
Gloss Mode
Normal (default)
High
Chosen when stable high gloss is required. Set this feature to High for glossy print jobs, such as photos, if you notice the gloss finish decreasing after the first page is printed. This setting reduces the performance for all paper types.
Light Media
Auto (default)
On
Prevents the fuser from wrapping with light paper. Set this feature to On if you are frequently seeing Fuser Delay Jam or Fuser Wrap Jam messages, especially when printing on lightweight paper or on jobs with heavy toner coverage.

Optimizes performance in low-voltage conditions. Set this feature to 100V if the product is operating in a low-voltage environment and you are having problems with print quality such as blisters in the printed image.
Cleaning frequency
Normal (default)
Alternate
Set this feature to Alternate if you are seeing defects in the printed output that repeat at 38 mm (1.5 inch) intervals. This feature increases the frequency at which the C roller is cleaned. Setting this feature to Alternate might also reduce printing speed and increase the frequency of consumable replacement.
D-Blade bias
Normal (default)
Alternate
Set this feature to Alternate if you are seeing short white vertical lines in the printed output. The Alternate setting might also cause dark spots in the printed output, so be sure to test this setting on a few print jobs.

Delay Calibration At Wake/Power On
No
Yes (default)
This menu controls the timing of the calibration when the printer wakes up or is turned on.
  • Select No to have the printer calibrate immediately when it wakes up or is turned on. The device will not print any jobs until it finishes calibrating.
  • Select Yes to enable a device that is asleep to accept print jobs before it calibrates. The device only accepts new jobs for a short time. It may start calibrating before it has printed all the jobs it has received.
