ADJUST PAPER TYPES
  • <TYPE> — List of paper types
Sometimes you may need to adjust the product for a particular paper type or environment in order to improve print quality.
To override the factory-default print-mode settings for a specific paper type, select it and apply any of the three adjustments described below.
In addition, you can map non-HP media types to a different print mode, although this is not recommended.
BEST GLOSS MODE
OFF (default)
ON
Turn this setting ON to maintain stable gloss mode performance. This setting decreases the print speed.
RESISTANCE MODE
NORMAL (default)
UP
DOWN
NORMAL is the default setting.
The UP setting raises the secondary transfer bias. Use this setting if you are seeing faded images or scattered toner on certain paper types. These problems might be worse on the second side of a printed duplex page. These problems occur more often in high-temperature and high-humidity environments, or with coated paper.
Use the DOWN setting if you are using light weight or thin media in a low-temperature and low-humidity environment and you are experiencing highly mottled, distorted, or grainy images, or images with toner missing. This setting reduces the secondary transfer bias.
DISCHARGE MODE
NORMAL (default)
ON
Select ON if you are seeing clumps of toner or toner spatter on print jobs. These problems can occur in low-temperature and low-humidity environments, with lightweight or thin paper. The problems might happen more frequently with duplex jobs.
PRINT MODES
AUTO SENSE MODE (default)
NORMAL
TRANSPARENCY MODE
<ADDITIONAL PRINT MODES>
Allows you to change the print mode for non-HP paper types, which can affect print quality.
When AUTO SENSE MODE is enabled, the product media sensor picks the best print mode.
RESTORE MODES
Use this feature to return all paper type-mode settings to the factory-default settings.
OPTIMIZE
PAPER CURL
NORMAL (default)
REDUCED
To help reduce paper curl, set this option to REDUCED. This decreases full speed to 10 PPM (instead of 40 ppm) and 3/4 speed to 7.5 ppm (instead of 30 ppm).
PRE-ROTATION
OFF (default)
ON
Set this feature to ON if horizontal streaks appear on pages. Using this feature increases the warm-up time for the product.
FUSER TEMP
NORMAL (default)
ALTERNATE 1
ALTERNATE 2
ALTERNATE 3
Reduces the temperature of the fuser to prevent a hot offset.
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 lightweight 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.
MEDIA TEMP
NORMAL (default)
REDUCED
Set this feature to REDUCED if you are having problems with paper sticking together in the output bin.
ENVIRONMENT
OFF (default)
ON
Optimizes performance in extreme low-temperature environments.
Set this feature to ON if the product is operating in a low-temperature environment and you are having problems with print quality such as blisters in the printed image.
LINE VOLTAGE
OFF (default)
ON
Optimizes performance in low-voltage conditions.
Set this feature to ON 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.
WASTE BIN
NORMAL (default)
ALTERNATE
Try setting this feature to ALTERNATE if you are seeing lengthwise toner streaks in your printed output, especially in jobs with low toner coverage.
BACKGROUND
OFF (default)
ON
Select ON if pages are printing with a shaded background. Using this feature can reduce gloss levels.
HEAVY MODE
30 PPM (default)
24 PPM
The default setting is 30 PPM. Select the 24 PPM option to reduce the speed and improve fusing on heavy paper.
TRACKING CONTROL
ON (default)
OFF
Improves color stability by adjusting the bias voltage. This setting should remain ON.
RESTORE OPTIMIZE
Use this feature to return all the settings in the Optimize menu to the factory-default values.
QUICK CALIBRATE NOW
Performs a partial product calibration.
FULL CALIBRATE NOW
Performs all product calibrations.
CALIBRATE NEUTRALS
CALIBRATION SOURCE
TRAY 1 <SIZE/TYPE>
TRAY 2 <SIZE/TYPE>
TRAY <X> <SIZE/TYPE>
This menu item affects the toner mixture in order to optimize neutral colors for color print jobs. A special sensor measures color on three specially printed pages from a selected tray and adjusts the color parameters. This corrects for too much or too little cyan, magenta, yellow, or black toner, which improves color consistency.
Choose the source tray, paper type, and paper size for the calibration page.
To run calibration on different paper types, load the desired paper type in a tray, select this menu item, and then specify the loaded tray.
CALIBRATION TYPE
<TYPE>
This item is available only if the selected tray type is set to ANY TYPE.
CALIBRATION SIZE
<SIZE>
This item is available only if the selected tray size is set to ANY SIZE or ANY CUSTOM.
UNIT OF MEASURE
INCHES
MILLIMETERS
The unit of measure to describe a custom paper size. This item is available only if the selected paper size is set to CUSTOM.
X DIMENSION
The X dimension of the custom paper size. This item is available only if the selected paper size is set to CUSTOM.
Y DIMENSION
The Y dimension of the custom paper size. This item is available only if the selected paper size is set to CUSTOM.
AUTO CALIBRATE NEUTRALS
ON
OFF
This menu item controls whether the CALIBRATE NEUTRALS process is performed automatically. If you select ON, the product performs the calibration automatically whenever environmental conditions indicate that it is required. Three calibration pages are printed. You can recycle these pages when the calibration is complete.
RESOLUTION
Image REt 4800 (default)
1200x600 dpi
Sets the resolution at which the product prints. The default value is Image REt 4800. Try the 1200x600 dpi setting to improve printing for detailed line work or small text.
EDGE CONTROL
OFF
LIGHT
NORMAL (default)
MAXIMUM
The Edge Control setting determines how edges are rendered. Edge control has two components: adaptive halftoning and trapping. Adaptive halftoning increases edge sharpness. Trapping reduces the effect of color-plane misregistration by overlapping the edges of adjacent objects slightly.
  • OFF turns off both trapping and adaptive halftoning.
  • LIGHT sets trapping at a minimal level, and adaptive halftoning is on.
  • NORMAL is the default trapping setting. Trapping is at a medium level and adaptive halftoning is on.
  • MAXIMUM is the most aggressive trapping setting. Adaptive halftoning is on.
PROCESS CLEANING PAGE
Allows you to create and process a cleaning page for cleaning excess toner off the pressure roller in the fuser. When the cleaning process runs, a blank page is printed. This page can be discarded.
