<Special Processing>

If the print results on special types of paper are not satisfactory, the following settings may improve the quality of the printouts.
<Special Paper Processing>
When printing on the back side of printed paper, rough paper, or envelopes, the print results may be improved by adjusting the following settings.
<Manual Back Side Print (2-Sided Only)>
If printouts on the back side of printed paper are too light, select <On>. You can specify this setting separately for each paper source.
<Multi-Purpose Tray>
<Off>
<On>
 
<Drawer 1>
<Off>
<On>
 
<Drawer 2>*
<Off>
<On>
If you set to <On>, image quality may be affected when a certain length of time elapses after printing on the front side or depending on the ambient humidity.
<Rough Surface Envelope Mode>
When printing on envelopes with rough surfaces, select <On>. However, the printing speed may be slower.
<Off>
<On>
<Rough Surface Envelope Mode> functions only when the paper type setting is <Envelope 2>. Specifying Paper Size and Type
If you set to <On>, the <Paper Curl Correction> setting will be disabled.
<Paper Wrinkle Correction>
Printouts may wrinkle depending on the paper to use. In this case, setting this item to <On> may solve the problem.
<Off>
<On>
If you set to <On>, the print may be faded or the printing speed may be slower.
<Paper Curl Correction>
If the printed paper curls, set this item to <On>.
<Off>
<On>
If you set to <On>, the printing speed may be slower.
<Rdc. Tnr Flaking from Heavy Sml. Ppr>
When a halftone image such as a photograph is printed on a small size piece of heavy paper, streaks may appear on the back side of the paper. In this case, setting this item to <On> may solve the problem.
<Off>
<On>
If you set to <On>, the printing speed may be slower.
<Reduce Thin Paper Curling>
If printing on thin paper produces curled printouts, setting this item to <On> may solve the problem.
<Off>
<On>
<Reduce Thin Paper Curling> functions only when the paper type setting is <Thin 1>. Specifying Paper Size and Type
If you set to <On>, automatic 2-sided printing with <Thin 1> is disabled. Further, printouts may be faded due to poor fixing of toner.
<Reduce Ppr. Sticking at Output>
In 2-sided printing, printed paper may stick to each other depending on the image density of print data. In this case, setting this item to <On> may solve the problem.
<Off>
<On>
If you set to <On>, the printing speed may be slower.
<High Humidity Mode>
Print density may be uneven when the machine is used in an environment with high humidity. In this case, setting this item to <On> may solve the problem.
<Off>
<On>
If you set to <On>, the print density may vary depending on the ambient humidity.
<Low Humidity Mode>
When using the machine in an environment with low humidity, printed images and text may be blurry. In this case, set this item. The improvement effect is stronger with <Mode 2> than with <Mode 1>. First try the adjustment with <Mode 1>.
<Off>
<Mode 1>
<Mode 2>
If <Low Humidity Mode> is specified, print density may be lower or uneven when the machine is used in an environment with high humidity.
<Reduce Ghosting 1>
When you print on large size paper after printing on small size paper, afterimages may appear in blank areas. In this case, setting this item to <On> may solve the problem.
<Off>
<On>
If you set to <On>, the printing speed may be slower.
<Rdc Condens. (Consec 2-Sd Prt)>
If the printed images are faint due to moisture condensation when performing 2-sided printing, setting to other than <Off> may solve the problem.
<Off>
<On>
If you set to <On>, the printing speed will be slower.
<Rdc. Wrinkles(Humidity)/Streaks>
If printouts have creases when damp paper is used or if streaks appear in the leading edge of paper when images with halftones such as photos are printed, setting to <On> may solve the problem.
<Off>
<On>
If you set to <On>, the printing speed will be slower.
<Quiet Mode>
When printing sounds bother you, set this item to <On>.
<Off>
<On>
If you set to <On>, the printing speed will be slower.
<Correct Blurry Image>
Streaks may appear on printouts depending on the paper type or the environmental conditions. In this case, setting this item may solve the problem. The improvement effect is weakest with <Mode 1> and strongest with <Mode 4>.
<Off>
<Mode 1>
<Mode 2>
<Mode 3>
<Mode 4>
Setting a stronger improvement effect may result in lighter print density or slower printing speed. It may also result in less sharp edges and rougher details.
<Correct Blurry Image for Copy>
Smudges may appear on copies depending on the paper type or the environmental conditions. In this case, setting this item may solve the problem. The improvement effect is strongest with <Mode 3> and weakest with <Mode 1>.
<Off>
<Mode 1>
<Mode 2>
<Mode 3>
Setting a stronger improvement effect may result in lighter print density.
<Rdc Blnk Space Dark. After Rplc Cart.>
Immediately after replacing toner cartridges with new ones, black streaks may appear on printouts or printing on heavy paper may result in grayish printouts. In this case, setting this item to <On> may solve the problem.
<Off>
<On>
If you set to <On>, the setting will become effective with next replacement of toner cartridges.
Immediately after cartridge replacement, a certain amount of time is required for toner to be evenly distributed inside the cartridge.

<Remove Streaks from Scan Area>

You can configure a setting to prevent stains from being scanned when they are detected in the document feed scanning area. Selecting <On> removes streaks generated by the edge of the original.
<Off>
<On>
When streaks are removed, areas with stains are not scanned. Clean the original scanning area so that the original is scanned satisfactorily.
