To further simplify operation and management, the D640 tracks toner, developer, photoconductor drum, fuser, and paper pick roller usage and displays operator messages advising replacement as needed.
Duplex Printing With No Performance DegradationThe D640 performs duplex printing (letter and A4 paper sizes) at 40 page sides per minute. 1-2 About Your Printer, Accessories For the D640 Printer
About Your Printer Toner Recycling and Economy Mode PrintingThe D640 supports both toner recycling and economy printing mode for greater toner yields. Toner recycling can increase toner yield by up to 20%. In economy mode, toner usage is reduced by up to 30% with minimal impact on text print quality.
High Capacity Paper HandlingThe D640 features a maximum standard input capacity of 1500 sheets in three 500-sheet paper trays. Maximum standard output capacity is 400 sheets. Addition of the High Capacity Input (HCI) accessory increases the total input capacity to 4500 sheets. The High Capacity Output (HCO) accessory handles up to 2000 sheets and supports output jogging for job separation.
Custom Paper Size SupportThe D640 supports non-standard paper sizes with a custom paper tray. Paper sizes as small as 4.75 inches by 7.2 inches (120 mm x 182 mm) or as large as 11.7 inches by 17 inches (297 mm x 431.8 mm) can be accommodated. The custom paper tray can be used as tray1, tray2, or tray3. When using more than one custom paper tray, each tray must contain the same size of paper.
Backlit LCD DisplayThe D640 features a backlit, menu-oriented, Liquid Crystal Display for ease of configuration and printer management. Five different languages are supported (English, German, French, Spanish, and Italian).
Multiple InterfacesThe D640 features integrated Bitronics (parallel) and serial interfaces and supports automatic switching between these two interfaces. HP JetDirect EX external network interfaces (purchased separately) provide Ethernet/IEEE 802.3 or Token Ring IEEE 802.5 LAN interfaces. The same network management software used with HP LaserJet printers and HP JetDirect cards can be used with the D640 and HP JetDirect EX products, allowing networked HP printers to be administered and managed with a common set of software tools.
PostScript Level 2PostScript is available for the D640 as an add-on product and includes an additional 16 megabytes of memory. The printer can be configured to automatically switch between PostScript and PCL print jobs. About Your Printer 1-3, Accessories For the D640 Printer
Compatibility with LaserJet 4Si/5Si PrinterThe HP 5000 D640 is compatible with the HP LaserJet 4Si printer driver. However, because the D640 provides more functionality than the HP LaserJet 4Si, not all D640 features can be accessed with the 4Si printer driver. You can use third party products or additional programming to access additional D640 features. The HP 5000 D640 is also compatible with the HP LaserJet 5Si printer driver. However, there are a few limitations when using the LaserJet 5Si printer driver. Please refer to Chapter 6, "Advanced Topics", for a discussion of LaserJet compatibility.
PCL Level 5eThe D640 printer supports PCL, the print language of HP LaserJet printers and the most widely installed print language in the world. Support for PCL Level 5e provides powerful formatting capabilities and compatibility with a wide range of software solutions.
Integral Hard DiskThe D640 features an internal hard disk drive(850 MB or more) factory preloaded with thousands of fonts and symbol sets. The hard disk can also be used for storing additional fonts, electronic forms as PCL macros, and company logos.
Energy Star ComplianceTo help minimize power consumption, the D640 complies with the Energy Star Program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Note If you have not done so, please refer to the Installation Manual and complete the installation procedures. These procedures ensure the safe operation of the printer and the best print quality. The printer requires regular maintenance, as described later in this manual. Although maintenance takes only a few minutes weekly, it is very important to the quality of the printouts and the life of the printer. Caution Hewlett-Packard recommends the use of Hewlett-Packard labelled consumable supplies. Hewlett-Packard is not responsible for any failures or print quality issues arising from the use of other than Hewlett-Packard supplies. Such failures are not covered under warranty or by any Hewlett-Packard service agreement. 1-4 About Your Printer, Getting to Know the Printer

Control Panel Control Panel IntroductionThe D640 printer performs many kinds of printing tasks. Through the Control Panel menus, you can select options and features. If your print job contains commands that change the Control Panel settings, the print job commands will be effective for that job only. This chapter is a detailed reference for all of the D640’s menu settings: If you want to Go to: • Understand Control Panel functions page 2-2 • Check the printer’s status page 2-3 • Check the printer’s paper page 2-5 • Select Custom menu settings page 2-9 • Select Printer menu settings page 2-11 • Select Configurations menu settings page 2-14 • Select PCL menu settings page 2-19 • Select Comms menu settings page 2-21 • Select Maintenance menu settings page 2-24 • Select PapSize menu settings page 2-26 • Select Test menu settings page 2-28 Control Panel 2-1, Getting to Know the Control Panel

Control Panel Features and FunctionsThe Control Panel is one of the means to control and configure the printer. Through the Control Panel, the printer displays information about aspects of normal operation, paper jams, consumable status, and error conditions. Use the function buttons on the Control Panel to change printer settings. Control Panel features include: • The Standby switch turns the printer on and off: - When you move the Standby switch momentarily to the ON (or up) position, the printer powers on. There will be up toa2minute delay before you can print while the printer performs an initialization sequence and warms the fuser to operating temperature. - When you move the Standby switch momentarily to the OFF (or down) position, the printer is powered off and placed in Standby mode. There may be a delay in the printer powering off; any pages currently moving through the paper path are printed before the printer powers off. • The Screen contrast control adjusts the contrast of the LCD panel. • The Function buttons are located below the LCD panel. These five buttons perform different functions during printer operations, such as when the printer is printing, or when you are changing settings. Figure 2-6 shows these function buttons. 2-2 Control Panel, Checking Printer Status
Control PanelAt any given time, you can only perform the action shown on the Control Panel for a particular button. If a button is undefined, it performs no function. • The Speaker is not currently activated. • The Liquid crystal display (LCD) panel displays printer status and operating information. Figure 2-6 shows the basic menu screen, called the Main Screen. Messages on the Main Screen: - Show information about printer status, progress of the print job, and the current paper path. - Display the paper size configured for each input source. - Show any paper jams in the paper path line. • The PowerSave indicator, when on, indicates that the printer is in PowerSave mode. The backlight of the LCD panel also turns off in PowerSave mode.
Checking Printer StatusYou may want to check the D640’s status for many reasons: • To verify that it is ready for printing. • To verify that it is either Online or Offline. • To check that the correct date, time, and printing protocol are set.

Control Panel 2-3, Checking Printer Status • PCL Indicates that the printer is using PCL (Printer Control Language) emulation. • Online The printer is ready to print.
Abnormal Printer StatusThe message field (the first and second line) of the Control Panel reports the printer’s conditions, such as low toner, paper jam, or door open. In these cases, the Control Panel also describes what action is needed to remedy the situation. Serious conditions may require a service call. Error messages are listed in Appendix A. The printer constantly monitors the state of consumables such as developer and toner. When a consumable runs low, or has reached its end-of-life, a message notifying you to replace the consumable appears on the Control Panel. An example of such a report is shown in Figure 2-3. Toner empty Add New Toner

The display also shows the installed paper trays and associated paper sizes, as listed in Table 2-1. Paper Size Symbol Description LTR indicates that the tray contains letter size paper. The symbol indicates Letter the long edge is leading into the paper path and the filled-in symbol (LTR) indicates the tray has paper. Note: paper size determines whether the long or short edge leads into the paper path. A4 indicates that the tray is set to contain A4 size paper. The empty A4 symbol indicates the tray has no paper. Legal LGL indicates legal size paper installed. The symbol indicates the short edge is leading into the paper path and that the paper tray has paper. (LGL) CUS indicates that custom paper is installed in the custom tray. This Custom particular custom tray paper configuration has the long edge leading into (CUS) the paper path. Control Panel 2-5, Function Buttons HCI HCI indicates that the HCI is installed and contains paper. Paper size can only be LTR or A4 (depending on the model of the HCI). A3 A3 indicates that A3 size paper is the specified paper size, but the missing symbol indicates that the tray is open.

Note You can use standard paper sizes in the custom trays. Set the Control Panel settings to the standard paper size, not the custom size. The custom paper tray (product number C5634A) holds paper that has minimum dimensions of 4.75 x 7.2 in (120 x 182 mm) up to 11.7 x 17 in (297 x 431.8 mm). For additional information regarding paper stock, see “Using Paper” on page D-1. 3-8 Printer Tasks, Adjusting Custom Tray Paper Guides
Printer Tasks1. Adjust the guides to the size of your paper. Figure 3-12 shows the adjustment guide travel directions. Thumbscrews to adjust left guide (finger tighten) Squeeze lever to release front and rear guides Figure 3-12 Custom Paper Tray guide adjustments 2. Load the paper in the tray as described in “Loading Paper Into Trays and HCI” on page 3-16. 3. Do not stack the paper above the "paper full" mark, as this may cause paper jams or skewed print. Note Never mix the types of paper loaded in a tray. Intermixing paper can result in paper handling problems. 4. Adjust the guides to fit closely, but not too tightly. A tight fit binds the paper and can cause misfeeds. Printer Tasks 3-9, Setting Custom Paper Sizes
Setting Custom Paper SizesThe custom paper tray can accommodate a wide range of paper sizes, using continuously adjustable paper guides. The custom paper tray can accommodate paper stock as small as 4.75 x 7.2 inches (120 x 182 mm) or as large as 11.7 x 17 inches (297 x 431.8 mm). You can install one or more custom trays in the printer, but they must all be set to the same size. There are two tasks in setting up custom paper sizes in the custom tray: • Define the custom tray. • Set the paper size in the printer menu settings. (Save the dimensions and menu numbers in case you must refill the tray at some other time.) 1. To specify a tray as the custom tray, press PapSize on the Main Screen (Figure 3-13) to display the screen shown in Figure 3-14. This display identifies the paper size in each tray.

Configuring Custom Tray Menu SettingsYou must first interpret your paper dimensions into settings the printer can understand. Basically, you must accurately measure your paper’s width and height (also called length) using standard inches (inches) or millimeters (mm), and converting the numbers into printer units. For example, usinga5x8inch card: 1. The card is printed with the short side (5 in) as the leading edge. The menu setting for the leading edge is width.You could also select the long side as the width. 2. The 8 inch side is height. You could also select the short side as the height. Printer Tasks 3-11, Configuring Custom Tray Menu Settings 3. The printer has many printer unit options. (A unit is simply a measure of size used to give you fine control over image placement on the page.) For most jobs sized in inches, use 1/100" as the unit size. 4. Multiply your paper height (length) by the number of units per inch (in our example, 100x8= 800). If you use a unit size of 1/200", the number would be 1600; if the unit size was 1/720", the number would be 5760, and so on. If you are using the mm unit setting, no multipli- cation is necessary. 5. Multiply your paper width by the number of units per inch (in our example, 100x5= 500). 6.

Loading Paper Into Trays and HCIThis section explains the proper paper loading process, which depends on the type of paper used and the print job requirements. Follow these basic guidelines to select and use paper and other media (transparencies, labels, etc.) for the D640: • Use only paper labeled specifically for non-impact or laser printing, xerographic copying, or duplicating. Refer to “Media Selection Specifications and Guidelines” on page D-3 for complete media specifications. • Use only one kind of paper in a tray at a time; mixing types of paper can cause jams. • Do not overfill the paper trays or HCI (note the maximum fill line). • The HCI is supported for use with paper media only.
Opening Paper1. Remove the paper from the package, with the package seam side up, as shown in Figure 3-25. Read the manufacturer’s packaging end-label and note the direction of the arrow. The arrow points to the side that should be printed first, also referred to as the face side. Figure 3-25 Removing paper from the package 2. Inspect the paper for indented or interlocked edges, bent corners, wrinkled sheets, and excess glue from the wrapper. Discard any damaged sheets. 3.

TOFTip Use the arrow on the paper package as a guideline for loading paper. For the HCI, load paper so that the arrow on the package is pointing upward. For trays, load paper so that the arrow on the package is pointing downward. Printer Tasks 3-17, Locking Paper Trays
Locking Paper TraysAll paper sources with the same size of media are automatically linked together. This means that the printer will automatically switch to the next tray when the current tray runs out of paper. This could cause problems when all of the paper trays are set to the same size of paper, but contain different types of paper, such as plain paper and letterhead. In order to eliminate the linking of trays, you must "lock" the trays you don’t want selected unless the job gives a direct command to use paper from that source. For example, if you have a tray with letterhead paper in it, you may want to lock out this tray so that if the other trays run out of paper, the letterhead paper tray would not be used. The printer does not detect the paper size loaded in a particular tray. Follow this procedure to lock a paper tray: 1. On the Main Screen, press Menu. 2.

Use this to pause the printer, such as when adding or removing paper or adding toner. Any incomplete or partial pages are printed (like a form feed or page eject). The job ENDDOC ends normally and the printer is ready for another job. This is typically used when the print job has no end-of-job command, and the Control Panel displays Ready - wait for a long time. Continues to process the current job, but the resulting pages are not printed. Printing resumes with the next job. Select SUPPRESS when you no longer want to print the SUPPRESS current job, but you want to retain data, such as downloaded fonts and macros, needed for future jobs. SUPPRESS is the recommended way to end routine print jobs. Ends processing of the current job and clears all data in the input buffer. This is the ABANDON most direct, quickest, and potentially risky way of stopping a current job. Use ABANDON only when you are certain that the data in the print job is not required by future print jobs.
Clearing a Paper JamWhen you start a print job, the printer selects paper, a page at a time, from one of the internal trays or from the external HCI. Paper jams may occur if the paper is wrinkled, folded, skewed, or out of specification. The printer goes Offline until the paper jam is cleared. When a jam occurs, refer to the Control Panel for a visual and written description of the jam location. For a visual indication refer to the picture on the right side of the Control Panel. The area in the paper path where the jam occurred will be blinking. More than one sheet of paper may be located in the paper path; all sheets must be removed before the printer will resume printing. In this case, the paper path diagram may continue blinking in the same or another location, and the printer displays messages about the location of remaining sheets until all jams are cleared. Note The printer is forced Offline until the problem is fixed. Table 3-3 lists each paper jam that displays on the Control Panel and how to clear the jam. More detailed information on clearing paper jams appears on the pages listed.

Handling Error Messages and TroubleshootingAn error message can be caused by mechanical problems, such as jams, or by incorrect settings, such as specifying the wrong paper size from the wrong paper tray. These are typical printer problems than can be easily cleared by the user. Printer errors that are caused by mechanical or electrical problems are also reported by specific error codes. These problems require a service call to your service representative. An error message is always accompanied by an action message, as shown in Figure 3-70.

Ordering and Replacing Consumables IntroductionThis chapter provides user maintenance procedures to maintain the printer’s consumables. If you want: Go to: • An overview of the D640 printer supplies page 4-1 • To order additional consumables page 4-2 • To replace toner or recycle toner after replacement page 4-4 • To replace developer and ozone filter page 4-9 • To replace the drum and transfer assembly page 4-18 • To replace the fuser page 4-29 • To replace the printer pick rollers page 4-33 • To replace the HCI pick rollers page 4-42
Overview of Consumable SuppliesYou can replace all of the consumable supplies. This chapter presents step-by-step instructions for removal and replacement of these supplies and explains how to set the printer to produce lighter or darker prints. • Each time you replace a consumable, the action is automatically recorded in the printer’s online maintenance log. Caution Damage to the photoconductor can cause excessively light or dark printing or missing text. Caution Hewlett-Packard recommends the use of Hewlett-Packard labelled consumable supplies. Hewlett-Packard is not responsible for any failures or print quality issues arising from the use of other than Hewlett-Packard supplies in the cut sheet printer. Such failures are not covered under warranty or under the Hewlett-Packard service agreement. Ordering and Replacing Consumables 4-1
Co, Ordering D640 Printer Consumables
Ordering D640 Printer ConsumablesYou can order consumables directly from Hewlett-Packard by calling 1-800-538-8787 in the United States and Canada. Customers outside the United States and Canada should contact their local Hewlett-Packard sales office. Please plan for a two to five day delivery in the United States, possibly longer outside the United States. If your printer was purchased from a Hewlett-Packard reseller, you may be able to purchase consumables directly from them. Table 4-1 lists the D640 printer consumables, ordering numbers, kit content descriptions and quantities, along with the length of time you can expect them to last under optimum operating conditions. Use the replacement cycle estimates in Table 4-1 to plan your initial consumable purchases. Because yields may vary widely from the estimates, you should track your actual usage to establish proper replacement schedules for each printer installation. Actual yields depend upon: • Media (paper type, weight, chemical composition, perforations, paper dust, and quality). • Media storage factors such as care and handling, room temperature, and humidity. • Exposure to light (photoconductor drum). • Frequency of cleaning the printer. • Average print job size, daily print volume, and patterns of printing. • Ambient environmental conditions, such as temperature, humidity, and static electricity. • Power-on hours. “Managing Consumables” on page 6-6 describes some of the considerations in using and replacing consumables. 4-2 Ordering and Replacing Consumables, Ordering D640 Printer Consumables nsumables Table 4-1 Consumables, product part numbers, and replacement cycles Product Replacement Cycle Shelf Item Contents Qty Number (Estimated) Life Toner Kit C5626A Toner bottles 8 each Up to 180,000 page sides 18 months Collector bottles 8 each Note: Yield based on 4% Cleaning rollers 4 each toner coverage Developer Kit C5632A Developer bottles 2 each Up to 250,000 page sides 18 months Ozone filter 1 each Drum Kit C5629A Photoconductor 1 each Up to 195,000 page sides 18 months drum Transfer unit 1 each Cleaning wipes 1 pkg Fuser Kit C5627A Fuser, 120-127 VAC 1 each Up to 300,000 page sides 18 months Fuser Kit C5628A Fuser, 200-240 VAC 1 each Up to 300,000 page sides Printer Pick C5633A Printer pick rollers 1 set Up to 500,000 pages Inf. Roller Kit HCI Pick C5636A HCI pick rollers 1 set Up to 500,000 pages Roller Kit Note: Replacement cycles based on letter or A4 sized media. Larger sized media require more frequent replacement. Note A new printer will report toner low and need to be refilled the first time after printing about 6,000 images. This is normal and is due to the toner hopper being completely empty in a new printer. The estimated yields listed are not a warranty or guarantee of minimum life and are provided to assist in initial supplies planning. Yields may vary widely based on applications and operating conditions. Yield estimate are based on, but not limited to, ideal environmental and operating conditions, print jobs averaging 4% toner coverage per page, and an average job of 25 pages.

Maintenance Maintenance IntroductionCleaning the D640 is an important factor in assuring optimum print quality. There are two cleaning routines to follow: • a short weekly cleaning routine that removes paper dust and stray toner particles from the exterior of the printer. • a more thorough internal cleaning procedure that should be performed when you replace the drum.
Weekly CleaningInvesting just a few minutes on your D640’s maintenance each week ensures minimum downtime and maintains high print quality. Make sure someone is responsible for printer maintenance. Perform the maintenance tasks at the recommended intervals. Use these tools for cleaning: • Cleaning cloths (supplied with the D640 printer) • Rags • Vacuum cleaner specially designed for picking up toner • Blower brush (supplied with the D640 printer) Note Turn the main power switch OFF before performing the weekly cleaning. Caution Make sure that the toner vacuum is properly grounded before using it in the printer, or the printer may sustain electrical damage. Refer to the vacuum’s operating manual. Maintenance 5-1, Weekly Cleaning
Removing Stray TonerDuring removal or replacement of various consumable parts, toner occasionally spills onto the printer interior or exterior. • Do not attempt to clean up spilled toner with water or any other fluid, as this can harm the developer, toner, and printer mechanism. • Use a vacuum cleaner especially designed for trapping toner particles. Regular vacuum cleaners cannot trap the fine toner particles and will exhaust them back into the air. If you are unsure which vacuum cleaner to use, consult your service representative. Toner Hopper Area To clean the toner hopper area, follow these steps: 1. Turn off the main power switch, and open the upper right cover. 2. Use the toner vacuum to remove any toner on the upper surface of the toner hopper. Use the supplied cleaning cloths to wipe up any toner or dust off the outside of the toner hopper area. Clean all the way across the toner hopper area, paying careful attention to the area in and around the toner hopper. Figure 5-1 illustrates the cleaning procedure. Figure 5-1 Cleaning Toner Hopper area 3. Close the upper right cover. 5-2 Maintenance, Weekly Cleaning
Maintenance Precharger AreaThe precharger is a wire located inside the drum. The drum contains a built-in cleaning rod to remove toner that might build up on the precharger wire. To clean the precharger, follow these steps: 1. Pull out the precharger cleaner handle (Figure 5-2), then push it back into its original location. Repeat this "out-in" process 4 or 5 times. Precharger cleaner Figure 5-2 Cleaning the Precharger 2. Push the precharger cleaner in completely. Maintenance 5-3, Weekly Cleaning
Paper Feed AreaTo clean the paper feed area, follow these steps: 1. Open the lower right cover. 2. Use the supplied cleaning cloths to wipe up any toner or dust off the paper feed mechanisms in this area, on the inside area and on the cover area. Clean all the way down to the base of the printer to ensure a thorough cleaning. See Figure 5-3. Caution To avoid damage to the paper sensors in the paper feed area, wipe the area from bottom to top. Figure 5-3 Cleaning Paper Feed Area 3. Close the lower right cover.
Paper Input TraysTo clean the inside of the paper input trays, follow these steps: 1. Remove tray3 from the printer, then remove any paper in it. 2. Use the vacuum cleaner to remove any paper dust or chips from the tray. 3. Reinstall the paper in the tray, and the tray in the printer. 4. Repeat steps 1 - 3 for the other two trays. 5-4 Maintenance, Periodic Cleaning (When Replacing Drum)

Advanced Topics Advanced TopicsThis chapter presents information about: • Maintaining print quality • Managing consumables • Adjusting paper path alignment • Setting up edge-to-edge printing • Configuring for LaserJet compatibility • Using virtual font cartridges The topics in this chapter help you find new uses for the printer, manage your consumable supplies, and maintain optimum print quality.
Maintaining Print QualityIn some situations, print quality can be very subjective, and in other situations, the problem is very obvious. This section provides guidelines for making correct diagnosis of the problem to minimize incorrect and needless repairs. Visual print quality analysis assumes you have maintained the printer according to the required maintenance procedures and schedule. Chapter 5 provides the printer maintenance schedule and procedures. This section provides print samples, starting with a good quality print. The rest of the print samples are flawed. The consumables that may be responsible for the flaws are included with each sample, along with recommended corrective actions.
Print Quality TroubleshootingIf you are dissatisfied with the quality of your prints: 1. Complete all of the weekly maintenance tasks (see “Weekly Cleaning” on page 5-1). 2. Clean your printer thoroughly (see “Periodic Cleaning (When Replacing Drum)” on page 5-5). 3. Check the quality of your prints. Advanced Topics 6-1, Maintaining Print Quality If you are still dissatisfied with your print quality: 1. Print several test pages of your typical work output and compare the print quality to the samples. The print samples provided here are generic, that is, they show specific problems. Your own print samples are typical of your printout problems and so you must compare prob- lem effects and not the actual print pattern. 2. Generate test prints to compare with the quality samples. (See Appendix E for more information.) 3. Identify a print quality sample included in this section that has the same flaws as your print test. 4. Review and complete the actions listed under the print sample in the order in which they are listed, generating a print after you complete each action. 5. Check the print’s quality; if the flaw or flaws are still present, continue to the next action in the list. If the flaws are repaired, you do not have to complete the remaining actions. If you complete all the recommended actions, including changing consumables, and the print quality doesn’t improve, you may need to call your service representative to resolve the problem. Refer to “Where To Call For Help” on page F-1 for the telephone number of your nearest Hewlett-Packard service representative. Be prepared to give the service representative the error code and any messages that appear on the Control Panel to assist in troubleshooting.
Print Quality ProblemsWhen you have any print quality problems, check the following items before starting your troubleshooting: 1. Check the Control Panel for any messages about consumables. If there is a “Consumable at end life” message, replace the consumable and retest for print quality. 2. Check whether the paper being used meets Hewlett-Packard standards. (Refer to “Using Paper” on page D-1.) 3. Check whether the paper is handled correctly (especially for creases or wrinkles). 4. Check whether the environment for the printer and the paper meets Hewlett-Packard standards - especially for humidity. Refer to Table C-5, “Printer environmental specifications”. 5. Check whether the rollers and the paper guides are clean (especially for scattered toner or developer, accumulated paper powder and paper pieces). 6. Check the Economode setting; be sure it is OFF. (See “Economode” on page 2-17.) 7. Adjust the print density. (See “Density” on page 2-25.) 6-2 Advanced Topics, Maintaining Print Quality

Specific Print Quality ProblemsAll sample pages are shown in Letter size and portrait orientation. Similar problems may show up on different paper edges, depending on the paper feed
FadingIf a white streak or a faded area appears on the page (in the direction the paper passes through the printer): • Check the Economode setting; be sure it is OFF. (See “Econo- mode” on page 2-17.) • The moisture content of the paper may be uneven, or there may be moist spots on the paper. Print several dozen test pages with paper from a newly-opened ream. • The print density setting may be too light. Adjust the print den- sity. (See “Density” on page 2-25.) • Toner may be on the transfer charger or pre-charger corona wires. Clean the printer’s transfer assembly unit and pre- charger. (See “Transfer Assembly Guide” on page 5-9.) • Replace the developer in the printer with new developer. (See “Replacing Developer” on page 4-9.) • Replace the drum unit with a new one. (See “Drum Kit - Replacing Drum and Transfer Assembly” on page 4-18.) • If you still have this print quality problem, contact your autho- rized HP service representative.
DropoutsIf faded areas, generally rounded, occur randomly on the page: • The moisture content of the paper may be uneven, or there may be moist spots on the paper. Print several dozen test pages with paper from a newly-opened ream. • The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing process can cause some areas to reject toner. Try paper from a different source. • Clean the paper feed path and LED array as described in “Weekly Cleaning” on page 5-1 and “Periodic Cleaning (When Replacing Drum)” on page 5-5. • Replace the developer unit with a new one. (See “Replacing Developer” on page 4-9.) • If you still have this print quality problem, contact your autho- rized HP service representative. 6-4 Advanced Topics, Maintaining Print Quality

Managing ConsumablesUse the following checklist to identify actions you can take to maximize consumable yields. Further detailed information is provided later in this section. 1. Keep the printer clean. Follow all the maintenance procedures listed in Chapter 5. Accumulations of toner and paper dust affect the yields of all consumables. 2. Use high-quality media. Factors such as paper chemicals or scratches from unsupported media can damage the drum and fuser. See Appendix A for a description of supported media. 3. Handle all consumables and print media with care. Protect the drum from light and abrasion. Avoid dropping or rough handling of consumables after they are removed from their cartons. Store the consumables and media in a clean, stable environment, preferably at the same location or under the same environmental conditions as the printer. 4. Use the toner management features discussed on page 6-7. The D640 printer supports several features that maximize toner usage. 5. Monitor and, if possible, manage print job sizes. Single-page print jobs are the least efficient for consumable usage. Longer, multiple-page jobs are more efficient. 6. Monitor and, if possible, manage the complexity of printed images. Images which are too complex to print at rated speed (for example, a large, complex PostScript image) reduce the life of the drum and developer. Also, printing repetitive images can wear the fuser rollers unevenly. 7. Avoid frequent lapses into power save mode or frequent power cycling. The start-up process uses some of the life of the drum and developer. 8. Avoid prolonged periods of inactivity with the power switched on. Hewlett-Packard recommends you switch off printers that are inactive overnight if the power save feature isn’t used. 6-6 Advanced Topics, Managing Consumables
Advanced TopicsNote The factory yield estimates for consumables are determined under operating conditions which are intended to model a large sample of customer installations. However, it is impossible to model every operating environment, and as result some installations may experience lower consumable yields than expected. Keep a log of actual consumable usage for each printer. This provides the most accurate data to plan consumable purchases.
TonerToner yields are primarily driven by the quantity of toner applied to each page. Large black areas, graphic images, gray backgrounds and forms outlines use more toner. If you print mostly or only a small amount of text, you will probably reach or exceed the estimated yield. Toner yield estimates are based on 4% toner coverage. This is a standard value used by the printer industry, which is based on the assumption that the "typical" A4 or letter-size business letter is 4% covered by black area. The D640 offers a number of features that, with some trade-offs, can extend toner yield. Density The density value is factory set to 10, approximately in the middle of its range. The density value can be set as low as 1 to reduce toner consumption. To the naked eye, solid area patterns will not appear any lighter under lower settings. Reducing the density will have the largest visual effect on gray scale patterns or the small text characters. Experiment to see if a lower density value can satisfy your print quality requirements. Actual toner savings will vary based on the types of images printed. The density setting can be found under the Maintenance Menu, described in “Density” on page 2-25. Economode Most printers simply print a lighter pattern when an economode setting is used. However, the D640 does not lighten the entire image. Instead, dots are turned off in strategic areas to reduce toner use while maintaining readability. When printing text in economode, the character outline is perfectly formed, while the inside uses fewer dots. The effects are nearly invisible to the naked eye at a 10 point character size, but may be more readily seen on large characters. Experiment to see if economode can be used for some, if not all of your printing. Large text- only reports may be able to use economode with no perceptible reduction in print quality. Economode can reduce toner consumption as much as 50%, depending on the printing pattern. The Economode setting can be found under the Configuration Menu, described in “Economode” on page 2-17. Advanced Topics 6-7, Managing Consumables Recycling Printers that user powdered toner generally only transfer about 70 to 80% of the toner used for a page image to the paper. The remaining 20 to 30% is known as waste toner because in most printers it is thrown away. In a printer that uses a toner cartridge, the waste toner is never seen because it is moved to a waste area inside the print cartridge. The D640 printer is unique in the industry, providing the choice of recycling the waste toner or throwing it away. As the printer ships from the factory, the toner recycling mode is disabled and waste toner collects in a bottle. You remove and throw out this bottle each time you add a new bottle of toner. With toner recycling enabled, the waste toner is funneled back into the toner hopper and gradually mixed with new toner. The disadvantage to recycling toner is a possible slight reduction in print quality. Print may appear lighter and small voids may be visible in dark images. In most text applications, you will probably not notice any reduced print quality with recycling on. If your application requires the best possible print quality, do not use toner recycling. Unlike Density and Economode, the effects of toner recycling are not immediately noticeable when you stop recycling. The waste toner must be completely flushed from the toner path. Depending on how long the recycling feature was used, it might take up to five bottles of new toner before the waste toner is completely flushed from the system. Toner Recycling Switch Toner recycling is enabled or disabled by moving the plastic slide switch located directly over the toner collector bottle. When it is pushed to the right, toner is recycled. When it is pushed to the left, waste toner collects in the toner collector bottle for disposal. Figure 6-2 shows the bottle and switch location. 6-8 Advanced Topics, Managing Consumables
Advanced TopicsToner Recycle Slide Figure 6-2 Toner Recycling Slide Switch
Drum and DeveloperThe drum and developer are grouped together because their yields depend on drum rotations. There is physical wear on the drum and developer mixture with every rotation of the drum. The drum is often rotating even when the printer is not printing. Factory yield estimates for the drum and developer, listed on the data sheet and in this manual, can never be accurate because there is not a one-to-one correspondence between drum rotations and printed pages. However, the internal counters in the printer do count drum rotations for both the drum and developer. The drum life is estimated at 250,000 drum rotations and the developer life is estimated at 160,000 drum rotations. The drum rotates during power up, at the start and end of each job, and while printing each image. Knowing what factors drive drum rotations helps you understand what determines the lives of your drum and developer. Frequent power cycling or lapses into power save mode add wear to the drum and developer. During power-up or coming out of power save mode, the drum rotates for up to two minutes. This can produce as many as 80 drum rotations even though no pages are printed. Advanced Topics 6-9, Managing Consumables The average number of pages in print jobs has a large effect on drum and developer life. Extra drum rotations occur at the start and end of each job. There are four rotations at the beginning and four rotations at the end. If the D640 primarily prints very small jobs (less than 25 pages), you get lower than rated yields on the drum and developer. If you primarily print jobs larger than 25 pages, you get higher than expected yields. There is also a negative effect on drum rotations if you print complex images that slow the printer down. If the printer controller cannot process the incoming data fast enough to keep the printer running at 40 pages per minute, extra drum rotations occur for the print job. The estimated yields for the drum and developer assume a job size of 25 page sides per job. It is not important if you occasionally print small jobs or complex images; it’s important how your print environment averages usage over a long period of time. The drum surface is easily damaged by scratches, long exposure to fluorescent light (30 minutes), or exposure to direct sunlight (which may cause gray background shading). The estimated yields do not account for replacement due to these factors. Scratches can occur from unsupported media and may be significant enough to require the drum to be replaced prior to the printer indicating the drum has reached its end of life. Paper which emits certain chemicals or large amounts of paper dust can cause excessive drum wear. If you this problem, contact your service representative or the paper manufacturer.
FuserThe fuser yield is controlled by the number of times a letter or A4 sheet of paper passes through it. The printer maintains a counter which increments based on the size of paper used. Factors which may reduce fuser life can be related to printing repetitious images, media problems or not replacing the cleaning roller when necessary. Hewlett-Packard recommends mixing up the types and positions of print images printed among print jobs. Fuser rollers can wear unevenly when a dark image, such as a company logo or a thick dark line, is printed repeatedly in the same position on every page of every print job. Media can also have an effect on fuser life. Paper which emits certain chemicals or large amounts of paper dust can cause excessive wear. If you suspect problems of this sort, contact your service representative or the paper manufacturer. For optimum fuser life, replace the cleaning roller after every other bottle of toner, and follow the recommended cleaning procedures in “Duplex Area” on page 5-6. The cleaning roller deposits silicon oil onto the fuser roller surface to prevent toner from sticking. It also cleans away small amounts of toner that adhere to the fuser roller surface. Failure to replace the cleaning roller at the specified times can greatly reduce fuser yields. 6-10 Advanced Topics, Adjusting Paper Path Alignment
Advanced Topics Ozone FilterThe ozone filter is replaced after every two bottles of developer. If replaced as specified, you should always receive the specified yield.
Transfer UnitThe transfer unit is replaced whenever the drum is replaced. Care must be taken to prevent accidental breakage of the delicate wires located inside the transfer unit. Unless physically damaged, you will always receive the specified yield.
Pushing Consumable Life Beyond Estimated YieldsThe printer maintains counters to track all consumable use and provides an alert message to inform you when a consumable item needs to be replaced. The printer will not stop, except for lack of toner or developer, but the message remains until you replace the specified consumable. There is a built-in "grace period", so the message to replace a consumable should occur long before you see any print quality or paper jam problems. When you get a "Toner Low" or "Developer end-life" message, it is best to add toner or developer as soon as possible. If toner runs out completely, or the developer reaches its end- life, the printer stops printing to prevent damage to the print engine. Toner and developer are the only consumables for which the printer physically stops. If you have a carefully monitored environment, you can watch the print quality and change the consumables (other than toner and developer) only when absolutely necessary. This tactic may further extend the replacement cycles of your consumables at your own risk.
Adjusting Paper Path AlignmentOver time, the paper path alignment may change slightly from the factory-set position. The following paper path alignment procedure will set the printing alignment for each tray to ensure correct print position. This procedure looks complicated, but after you have performed it a once or twice, it should only take a few minutes to complete. It may need to be repeated periodically to ensure proper alignment, but if you only print on blank paper, alignment is usually not critical. This procedure sets alignment for both simplex and duplex pages. If you have an HCI installed, you can also set alignment for it. Before proceeding, make sure that there is adequate (20 - 30 sheets) paper in each tray and the HCI (if installed). This amount is necessary for accurate feeding. Note Please read through the entire procedure before performing any of the steps. Advanced Topics 6-11, Adjusting Paper Path Alignment This procedure includes the following tasks: • Printing alignment sheets. When you run the alignment program from the printer’s hard drive, the printer produces a set of alignment pages. • Measuring alignment. By measuring the current alignment for each tray against a reference standard, you simply add two numbers to determine new alignment values. • Setting alignment values. Once you have determined new values, enter them in the Control Panel and recheck the alignment.

Advanced Topics Setting Up Edge-to-Edge PrintingThe D640 printer ordinarily enforces a 1/6" unprintable area around the edge of any page. This is the factory default and produces the best looking output. There may be some cases where you don’t want this border. The D640 supports edge-to-edge printing, which allows you to extend printing to the edge of the physical page. Note The print quality is not consistent within 1/6" of any edge. This is especially true for the trailing edge of the second side in duplex printing. For this reason, Hewlett-Packard cannot guarantee print quality within this 1/6" area. Your Hewlett-Packard warranty and service contract does not cover service calls related to printing within this 1/6" area. The quality and squareness of the paper determine print quality when printing close to the physical paper edge. In general, you may experience degraded print quality within .25 inches of any paper edge. When printing in duplex you may need to compensate for shrinkage and curl that may occur when the first side is printed. Lighter weight and recycled papers tend to shrink more then heavier weight papers. If you define text to start printing at location 0,0 it will print outside the logical page. This may or may not be on the physical page. Figure 6-18 describes the physical and logical page formats. Figure 6-18 Physical and Logical Page formats Advanced Topics 6-23, Configuring for LaserJet IIIsi and 4si Compatibility
Configuring for LaserJet IIIsi and 4si CompatibilityThe D640 printer is unique and different from the Hewlett-Packard LaserJet family of printers in general, and from the LaserJet "si" series in particular. While these two printer families share the same printer language (PCL and PJL), there are a number of physical differences to their hardware. We have included features in the D640 printer to make it behave like a LaserJet 4si, so your print jobs turn out like you expect. In many instances these features also provide compatibility with the LaserJet IIIsi and/or 5si. This section covers the compatibility features associated with PCL commands.
Paper InputThe D640 has three paper input trays, while the LaserJet 4si has two. The LaserJet5si has three. HCI selection compatibility is provided through the HCI-Alias Control Panel setting. HCI- Alias enables paper selection compatibility between a LaserJet IIIsi or 4si with an HCI and a D640 with an HCI. You can also set HCI-Alias = HCI to pick paper from tray1, tray2, tray3, or the HCI in response to the PCL commands shown in Table -6-1, “Paper tray map for HCI- Alias = HCI”.
Example ConfigurationLaserJet IIIsi / 4si • UPPER TRAY contains paper for job separation. • HCI TRAY contains white paper. - This configuration provides 500 sheets in the upper tray and 1500 sheets in the HCI tray. To match this configuration on the D640, set up the D640 as follows: • TRAY1 contains paper for job separation. • HCI contains white paper. • Set HCI-Alias = tray2. - This configuration provides 500 sheets in tray1 and 3000 sheets in the HCI. You could also load paper for job separation in tray2 and tray3 to increase capacity to 1500 sheets. 6-24 Advanced Topics, Configuring for LaserJet IIIsi and 4si Compatibility
Advanced TopicsIf HCI-Alias is set to HCI, the values shown below in Table -6-1, “Paper tray map for HCI- Alias = HCI” are correct. If HCI-Alias is set to tray2, then you can send a job to either a 4si or a D640. Table 6-1 Paper tray map for HCI-Alias = HCI IIIsi, 4si D640 5si upper tray upper tray (tray1) upper drawer (tray2) lower tray middle tray (tray2) lower drawer (tray3) n/a High Capacity Input High Capacity Input n/a lower drawer (tray3) fold out tray (tray1) You can also set the default paper tray (used if there is no paper size or paper source command embedded in the print job) from the Control Panel. Use the intray setting in the Printing Menu.
Using the LaserJet 5Si DriverThe D640 printer can be used with a LaserJet 5Si printer driver, but there are many differences. For example: • The input tray selection is different. See Table 6-1 above. • The D640 printer does not support media type selection. • The LaserJet 5Si does not support font cartridges. Advanced Topics 6-25,
Using Virtual Font Cartridges Using Virtual Font Cartridges Each of the D640 internal fonts is almost identical to those used in the LaserJet 4si. Sometypefaces, treatments, and symbol sets are slightly different, due to advances in font technology since the development of the 4si. For example, if you print a very large question mark on each machine, you may notice differences in the shape.
All of the font sets from all of the 4si font cartridges sold by Hewlett-Packard are stored on the D640’s internal hard disk drive as virtual font cartridges. You select the virtual font cartridgeby the Control Panel vcartridge1 and vcartridge2 settings (see “Virtual Font Cartridges” on page 2-20). The font names are comparable to the actual physical cartridge.

Interface Configuration B Host Serial and Parallel Interface Configuration IntroductionThe D640 printer is equipped with two standard communication interfaces used to connect to a host computer: • Bitronics (Parallel) interface • RS-232C serial interface With the addition of an HP JetDirect EX interface, purchased separately, you can use the printer on a local area network (LAN). The JetDirect EX interface connects the network to the Bitronics interface of the printer. (If you purchased the HP JetDirect EX interface, you’ll find detailed directions included in the JetDirect EX Configuration Guide.) Parallel connector Serial connector Figure B-1 Standard Signal Interface Connectors The standard parallel (IEEE 1284C) and serial (RS-232C) communication interface connectors are located on the back of the printer, as shown in Figure B-1. The IEEE 1284C connector is at the upper back of the printer; this connector is smaller than the usual (Centronics) parallel Host Serial and Parallel Interface Configuration B-1, Using the Serial Interface connector. This is a “C” type Bitronics connection. Hewlett-Packard has included an “A-to-C” parallel printer cable with the printer. The RS-232C connector is the standard DB25 pin connector, located near the top center of the printer. You can get more information about HP’s compliance with the IEEE 1284 Standard from the HP FIRST fax retrieval service at 1-800-333-1917 in the USA and Canada. Ask for document number 1951. The same document is also available by ftp from: ftp://ftp-boi.external.hp.com/pub/printers/laserjet/doc/bp02455.asc
Using the Serial InterfaceUse the serial interface when you need to locate the printer at some distance (up to 50 feet (15 meters)) from the host computer. You can use either an RS-232C or an RS-422A cable. Table B-1 lists RS-232C and RS-422A pin assignments and signal descriptions. Those pins not listed in the table are not used.

Interface ConfigurationThe serial interface is accessible through a 25-pin female connector (Figure B-2) at the back of the printer. The interface can be configured to operate in an RS-232 or RS-422 configuration. Use the control panel to set the configuration. If you are set up for RS-232 operation, you can convert to RS-422 operation by shorting pin 14 of the interface to ground (pin 7).

Using Paper D Using PaperThe D640 prints on a variety of print media, including paper, labels, and overhead transparencies, at up to 600 x 600 dots per inch (dpi). Note The D640 does not accept envelopes as print media. The D640 printer uses laser electrophotographic technologies. In this process, a laser writes an electrostatic image onto the photosensitive drum. As this image passes the developing station, a dry, powdery toner is attracted to the imaged areas. This developed image then advances to the transfer station, where the belt contacts the media and the toner image is electrostatically transferred onto the paper. After transfer, the media passes through the fuser; heat and pressure are applied and the toner fuses (melts) onto the media. The media is then deposited in the output tray, ready for use. To create the printed image all print media must be transported through the printer, electrostatically charged, and heated. This is why media properties such as electrical resistivity, caliper, smoothness, and stiffness can affect the print quality and media handling performance of your D640 printer.
Supported Print Media TypesYour D640 printer will print on a variety of media, including paper, labels, and overhead transparencies. “Media Selection Specifications and Guidelines” on page D-3 provides suggestions for these different media. Hewlett-Packard neither warrants nor recommends the use of a particular print media. Media properties are subject to change by manufacturers and Hewlett-Packard has no control over such changes. The customer assumes all responsibility for the quality and performance of media. Although testing media helps to characterize their performance, long-term satisfaction requires process quality control by the manufacturer and proper handling until use.
Alternate Sources of InformationThe manufacturer and the vendor of the media that you select should be able to provide information about the suitability of its use in a D640 printer. Your vendor should be your contact when selecting media for your individual application needs. If you have tried all of the suggestions outlined in this document, and still need assistance, HP provides support through the world-wide network of Hewlett-Packard Sales and Service Offices. Refer to “Warranty and Support” on page F-1. Using Paper D-1, Paper Manufacturing In the United States, Hewlett-Packard also offers support through a local support representative. A customer support technician will be happy to offer advice to help solve your printer operation problems.
Paper ManufacturingLaser printers require paper types and specifications that were uncommon just a decade ago. Until then, no distinction was made between writing paper and xerographic paper. The manufacture of paper is complex. Several different mills may offer the same type of paper (for example, 25% cotton bond, writing stock) but each manufacturer will vary the texture, color, fiber, lignin, coating, and other elements which make their product unique. In the paper industry, there are no equivalent papers between manufacturers, only substitutes.
Sources of PaperPaper is primarily made from cellulose fiber, the major component of the cell walls of wood fibers and other plants. Sources of this fiber include: • Raw Wood • Recycled or waste wood • Cotton Pulping methods are based, in part, on the fiber length of the raw wood. Hardwoods, such as cottonwood, contain short fibers, from one to two millimeters in length. Softwood fibers, including pine, spruce, and other conifers range in length from three to six millimeters. In each case, the thickness is less than that of a human hair. These differences often mean variability among paper manufacturers, even within the same company. To ensure quality and consistency, a certain percentage of this material must come from raw wood. Timber may be harvested from national forests and private land as well as tree farms or plantations. Surface Coatings A thin layer of coating may be applied to the paper which could change its physical characteristics. These surface coatings or “sizings” are added to make the sheets more resistant to ink or water penetration and to increase durability. Coatings may also be added to create a neutral pH in paper used for archival storage (such as legal documents). Surface coatings are usually liquid starches and are applied either by spraying, immersion, or mixing into the furnish. Heavy coatings of clay or talc should be avoided because they become hard and brittle, causing the fibers to break like a piece of chalk and come off during printer operation. Surface coatings also affect the surface electrical resistivity, which is a important factor in the performance of your D640 printers. D-2 Using Paper, Media Selection Specifications and Guidelines
Using PaperCast Surfaces When a very smooth surface is required, a clay and water solution is applied to the paper, and is then “cast” under high temperatures. Cast surface paper is mainly used for offset color presses and making original typeset master sheets used in publication printing. This type of paper is not recommended for D640 printers because clay is very abrasive to components in the paper path.
PackagingPackaging is an important step in the paper-making process. Much of the paper used for computing printing applications is packaged in reams: wrapped bundles containing 500 sheets. Because paper is hygroscopic, or capable of absorbing or losing moisture from the air, it should be protected by moisture-proof polylaminated wrapping and moisture barriers. A ream of finished paper usually contains about 4% moisture. The paper ream remains stable if properly stored and opened only when ready to be used. Paper Ream Label A ream label is placed on the outside of the paper wrapping. The ream label usually indicates paper: basis weight, size, number of sheets, grain direction and grade. The printing surface of the paper may be indicated by an arrow on the ream label. Paper should be loaded into the printer so that surface indicated by the arrow will be the printing surface. The printing surface may be up or down, depending on the printer model and the paper feeding source. Figure D-1 Ream Label
Media Selection Specifications and GuidelinesHewlett-Packard neither warrants nor recommends the use of a particular print media. Media properties are subject to change by manufacturers and Hewlett-Packard has no control over such changes. The customer assumes all responsibility for the quality and performance of media. Although testing media helps to characterize their performance, long-term satisfaction requires process quality control by the manufacturer and proper handling until use. Using Paper D-3, Media Selection Specifications and Guidelines
Recommendations to the CustomerHewlett-Packard D640 printers are designed to be as flexible as possible in the types of print media they can use. Since there are many varieties of media and variations in the manufacturing process, you should test a particular medium in your environment to determine if it performs acceptably. Buy Media that Meets Specifications To get the best performance from your D640 printer, select high quality print media that meet the guidelines and specifications in this document. Test Small Amounts of Media The next step in choosing media, particularly if you are planning a large purchase, is to print a small quantity in your environment. Subject it to the temperature, humidity, and printing application in which it will be operating. DO NOT purchase large quantities without first testing the media! Hewlett-Packard recommends that you ask your media vendor for a guarantee that their media will perform satisfactorily in your D640 printer, and that you ask the vendor to assume responsibility for the replacement of any media that will not print acceptably. Use High Quality Media Hewlett-Packard printers will work best with high quality media. Quality media for D640 printers are characterized by uniform physical properties, freedom from dust and lint, accurate cutting to size, and packaging that protects it from moisture and physical damage. Curled or bent edges, spots, dust or lint, wrinkling, and inaccurate cutting to size are common media problems that should be avoided. These problems can cause misfeeding, jamming, premature wear, or unsatisfactory print quality. Size Table D-1, “Paper sizes” shows paper sizes that can be used with D640 printers. Shown also is the numeric code displayed on the operator panel for each paper size. All paper sizes can be used in either simplex or duplex printing modes. Use only paper that is within the dimensions shown in Table D-1, “Paper sizes”. Note Although the D640 printer can print over the entire sheet, we do not guarantee quality for print in the outer 5mm of the page periphery. This border will vary slightly with the quality of the paper used.

The printer is specifically designed to perform at maximum efficiency when 20 pound bond (75g/m2) paper is used. Optimum print quality and paper path reliability are achieved when high quality electrophotographic (EP) paper is used. EP papers have specific characteristics that distinguish them from bond papers. The range of paper weight that the printer and HCI can process is 17 to 24 pound (64 to 90 g/m 2). The printer can handle paper weights up to 36 pound (135 g/m2), but 17 to 24 is optimum. Specifications for basis weight depend upon the paper source the paper is fed. In general, the straighter the paper path, the heavier the basis weight may be. For more complex paper paths, as in feeding from the HCI, a lighter weight may be required, in range of 18 to 24 pound. Furnish (Composition) Furnish is the fiber and chemical composition of paper. Fiber composition of the paper used in D640 printers should be manufactured from 100 percent chemical wood pulp and/or cotton fiber. To ensure that paper of a special fiber composition will work properly, always test it before purchasing large quantities. Other allowable components of paper are sizing, fillers, buffers and pigments. Note DO NOT use coated paper or paper containing materials that melt, vaporize, offset, discolor or release hazardous emissions when exposed to 392°F (200°C). Using Paper D-5, Media Selection Specifications and Guidelines Curl Curl is curvature in a sheet of paper. Curl is typically measured by laying the sheet of paper on a flat surface, with the corners up, and measuring the height of the corners. In-ream curl is the amount of curl a sheet of paper has before printing. (In-ream curl may result from the paper manufacturing process or from exposure to the environment). Post-image curl is the amount of curl a sheet of paper has after printing (from exposure to the fusing process and paper path in the printer). Paper with excessive in-ream curl may lead to feeding and print quality problems. In addition paper with excessive post-image curl may be difficult to handle or use in automatic-feed photocopiers. The curl side of the paper can be identified by a slight concave bowing from the outside edges of the paper stack towards the center of the top sheet. This curled side is always the side that should face away from the printer’s photoconductor. Having the curl side face away from the photoconductor helps the paper separate from the photoconductor surface during the printing process. Paper curl becomes more obvious after fusing of a print. If the curl of a printed page appears too excessive, it is likely that paper handling problems may occur during duplex printing. If this is the situation, open the paper tray and turn the paper over. Try printing again. If the problem is still not resolved, select a different paper for duplex printing, and reserve the “problem” paper for single-sided printing. Besides paper handling problems, excessive curl may also result in blurred print and similar print quality problems. The HP standard for in-ream paper curl is no more than 0.2 inches (5 mm) on any part of the paper, with 0.1 inches (3 mm) the optimal value. Finish (Texture) Finish, or texture, is the degree to which the surface is free of irregularities (or the smoothness or roughness of the paper). Using paper that meets HP specifications for surface texture is critical to the operation of D640 printers. The degree of surface texture is determined by the fiber composition of the paper, fillers which may have been added to the paper mixture, and the number of passes through the calendar stacks. Common paper textures included cockleshell, linen and laid. D-6 Using Paper, Media Selection Specifications and Guidelines
Using Paper Potential ProblemsSome textures improve paper feeding while others hinder the feed operation. Too smooth or too rough paper can cause a variety of problems in D640 printers. Table D-2 Finish (texture) potential problems Problems Too Smooth Too Rough • misfeeds • misfeeds Feeding • multi-feeds • poor toner adhesion • poor toner adhesion • washout will show up (loose • light and dark transitions (toner Print toner particles from a previ- migrates to the valleys of the paper Quality ously printed page) surface, but not the peaks) • background toner scatter • printed characters may have broken edges none • registration roller Premature • paper path rollers Wear • fuser • paper path guides Felt Side vs.Wire Side The way paper is manufactured results in two-sided paper properties. This, along with other process variations, may make one side of the paper the preferred side to print on. The “top” side of the paper sheet as it is formed is known as the felt side, and the “bottom” is known as the wire side. Most manufacturers indicate the preferred printing side on the package. Moisture Content Note Moisture content is the most critical factor in paper performance in D640 printers. The moisture content of most paper at the time of manufacture is about 4-6% of volume by weight. This percentage can be altered as a result of environmental conditions during converting processes, shipping, storage, and printing. Storage, especially over long periods, can greatly influence moisture content. Because of the hygroscopic properties of paper, unless proper humidity and temperature are maintained, the paper will lose or gain moisture. Using Paper D-7, Media Selection Specifications and Guidelines The environmental conditions required to maintain the proper moisture content is 68°F to 75°F (20°C to 24°C) with a relative humidity of 45% to 55%. Table D-3 Moisture content potential problems • Paper shrinks unevenly during fusing, causing print quality problems Too Moist • Overall paper curl increases (increases post-image curl, causes poor toner adhesion, feed and print quality problems) • Excess static (causes multi-feeds and paper jams) Too Dry • Surface electrical resistivity (causes streaking and smudging of loose toner particles) The HP standard for moisture content is 4.7% ± 1% by weight. Although a paper may have the proper moisture content at the time of manufacture, exposure to temperature and humidity extremes may alter the percentage.
Fusing CompatibilityMedia that does not meet HP specifications may: • Discolor • Melt • Scorch • Offset • Release hazardous emissions • Have poor toner adhesion • Break down in other ways • Possibly damage the printer All media used in D640 printers must have the ability to withstand the fusing temperature of 392°C/200°C for 0.1 second, without experiencing any problems. Inspect the rollers for colored ink build-up from pre-printed logos or letterhead and for toner buildup or spots. Inspect printed output for repetitive defects and smearing. If necessary, contact your forms vendor to ensure paper’s fusing compatibility with D640 printers. D-8 Using Paper, Understanding Paper Ream Labels
Using Paper Understanding Paper Ream LabelsFigure D-2, shown below, is an example of a typical label from a ream of paper. It includes much of the information about paper use and paper specifications. Figure D-2 Paper Ream Label details
General GuidelinesSome general guidelines to follow when selecting media are summarized on the following pages. Use conventional white xerographic paper for most printing. The paper should be of high quality, free of cuts, tears, grease spots, loose particles, dust, wrinkles, voids, and curled or bent edges. Xerographic papers, also called photocopy or xerocopy papers, are usually made from chemical wood pulp and are characterized by a smooth surface, controlled electrical properties, heat stability, and cleanliness. These characteristics ensure good image transfer, fusing without excessive curl, and reliable printer operation. Some applications may require a paper having a more prestigious look or feel. Bond papers generally have a watermark and often use cotton fiber. These papers tend to have a rougher surface and their properties may not be controlled like xerographic papers. However, your D640 printer will print satisfactorily on many of these bond papers. Also, some paper manufacturers are now making laser grade bond papers which have properties compatible with laser quality printing. One of the most important things you can do to ensure the best possible performance from your D640 printer is to select a quality paper. Table D-4, “Recommended paper specifications”, summarizes the specifications of a paper that will give you the best performance. Using Paper D-9, General Guidelines Note It is possible that paper could meet all of the general specifications listed in this table and still not print satisfactorily because of the printing environment or other variables over which Hewlett-Packard has no control.

Pre-printed Forms and LetterheadTo avoid multiple feeding and jamming problems when using pre-printed forms, embossed paper, and letterhead, observe the following guidelines: • Do not use low-temperature inks (the kind used with some types of thermography). • Use forms and letterhead printed by offset lithography or engraving. • Forms must be printed with heat-resistant inks that will not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous emissions when heated to 392°F (200°C) for 0.1 second. Typically, oxidation- set or oil-based inks meet this requirement. • If oxidation-cured inks are used, the use of oxidation retardants should be minimized. • When the form is pre-printed, be careful not to change the moisture content of the paper, or use materials that change the paper’s electrical or handling properties. Forms should be sealed in moisture-proof wrap to prevent moisture changes during storage. • Pre-printed forms should not be processed with a finish or coated at the end of their production. • Do not use heavily embossed or raised letterhead papers. • Avoid papers with heavily textured surfaces. • Avoid using a band of ink on the leading edge of the paper. • Water additives must not be used, as they change the conductivity of the paper. The effect of the electrical charge applied to the paper during the printing process may be altered. • Following offset printing, the printed pages should be allowed to dry for one to two weeks in an atmosphere of 60°F to 80°F (16°C to 27°C) with a relative humidity of 35% to 50%. Using Paper D-11, General Guidelines
Adhesive LabelsFor the purposes of this specification, a label is defined as paper with a pressure-sensitive adhesive backing. Label stock includes the top or face sheet, the adhesive, and the liner or carrier sheet, also referred to as the backing. Note the following points about label stock: • Top or face sheets: The top sheet, which is the printing surface, is usually composed of xerographic paper. Label top sheets must provide good toner adhesion. • Carrier sheets: The carrier sheet must be compatible with the temperatures and pressure of the fusing process, and must be coated for easy release of the top sheet. • Adhesives: The adhesive must be stable at the 392°F (200°C) temperatures encountered in the printer's fusing process, and must not produce emissions that exceed exposure levels or threshold limits established by OSHA and other safety agencies. Adhesives must not come in direct contact with any part of the printer. No adhesive should be pressed out of the edges or between die-cuts (the cuts between individual labels). • Label arrangement: Labels should be arranged on the carrier sheet so that any exposed spaces run lengthwise down the sheet (See Table D-5, “Label specifications”.) Using label stock with spaces between the horizontal rows of labels can often result in labels peeling off during printing, causing serious jamming and possible printer damage. Labels may be specially manufactured to leave a margin around the outside edges that correspond to the outer margins of the printable area. If this special arrangement is to be used, DO NOT REMOVE the excess top sheet material from the carrier sheet. Figure D-3 Adhesive Label arrangements D-12 Using Paper, General Guidelines
Using PaperNote It is possible that labels could meet all of the general specifications listed in "Adhesive Label arrangements" and still not print satisfactorily because of the printing environment or other variables over which Hewlett-Packard has no control. Table D-5 Label specifications Must not be on any external surfaces of the label before, during or after Adhesive printing.Label construction and die-cutting must not allow labels to peel off during transport, printing, or fusing. Basis Weight 32 to 34 pounds (120 to 128 g/m 2). Curl In-ream: flat within 0.2 in. (5 mm). Finishing Cut sheet within 0.031 in. (0.79 mm) of nominal and within 0.2° of square. All adhesives, carrier sheets, top sheets, and other materials used in Fusing label construction must be compatible with the heat and pressure of the Compatibility fusing process. Materials must not discolor, melt, offset, or release hazardous emissions when heated to 392°F (200°C). Packaging Moisture proof wrap to preserve properties. Shelf Life One year, minimum, stored at 72°F (22°C) and 50% R.H. Refer to Purchasing in the next section for ordering HP labels. Note The following actions can cause labels to peel off, possibly damaging the inside of your printer: printing on labels while the printer is in duplex mode or removing individual labels from the carrier sheet, then printing on the remaining labels. Note Hewlett-Packard does not recommend removing any labels from the carrier sheet and then printing on the remaining labels. If labels must be removed, remove them from the bottom of the carrier sheet, continuing toward the top. Note Overhead transparencies used in D640 printers must be able to withstand the 392°F (200°C) temperature encountered in the printer's fusing process. Specifications for overhead transparencies are summarized in Table D-6, “Overhead transparency specifications summary”. Using Paper D-13, General Guidelines Refer to Purchasing in the next section for ordering HP transparencies. Table D-6 Overhead transparency specifications summary Basis Weight 45 to 60 pound (170 to 225 g/m ) Cutting Angle 90°plus or minus 0.2° Finishing Plus or minus 0.03 in. (plus or minus 0.8 mm) Fusing All materials of the overhead transparency must be compatible with the heat and pressure of the fusing process. Materials must not discolor, melt, offset material, Compatibility or release hazardous emissions when heated to 392°F (200°C). Recycled Paper Recycled paper is a combination of waste paper, pre-consumer waste, and post-consumer waste. Printed waste paper is usually washed to remove most of the inks and other contaminants. A recycled sheet of paper may contain dark specks or appear gray or dirty. You should choose a recycled paper that meets the same specifications (except perhaps brightness) as standard paper, and has an appearance suitable for your needs. Hewlett-Packard recommends that the recycled paper contain no more than 5% groundwood. Note Depending on the quality of recycled paper, you may experience a higher jam rate and reduced consumable life compared to equivalent quality non-recycled paper. Archival Paper Paper used for archiving must meet the same specifications as standard paper, however, the pH should be no less than 7.0. Some archival demands are more stringent than others, requiring the degree of alkalinity and chemical stability to be specified. Toner is chemically stable and should last as long as the paper does. Toner can be degraded by petroleum based solvents or plasticizers, such as those found in vinyl folders. Avoid folding archival documents across printed areas or handling them roughly. Discuss archival requirements with your paper supplier. Colored Paper Colored paper can be used in D640 printers as long as the standard paper specifications are met. D-14 Using Paper, General Guidelines
Using PaperPaper with Cutouts or Perforations Hewlett-Packard does not recommend using paper with cutouts or perforations because they often cause paper handling problems and may cause printer damage. A cutout is defined as any portion of the paper that has been removed, including binder holes, notches, square cuts, etc. Paper with internal perforations may cause misfeeds and paper jams. If you must use papers with internal perforations or cutouts, take care to conform to the following: • Cutouts and perforations should be punched from the side to be printed on, so that edge trimmings will not scratch the photosensitive belt. • Do not print at a cutout location, or closer than 1/8 inch (3.5 mm) to the edge of a cutout, to prevent toner from contaminating the inside of the printer. • Cutouts and perforations should be cut clean (without burrs), to avoid multiple feed, contamination problems, or paper jams. • Avoid perforations that run perpendicular to the paper path. When the printer transfers paper from one set of rollers to the next, a perforation can cause the page to bend downward and miss the pickup point on the next roller. Chemically Treated Paper Coatings such as lacquers, polymers, laminations or other chemicals protect the paper but can cause problems in the fuser and transfer areas of D640 printers. The surface resistivity and moisture content can be greatly altered, resulting in print quality problems. Hard surfaces coatings increase wear on the rollers and paper guides. All chemically treated paper must meet HP specifications for fusing compatibility. Synthetic Paper Synthetic papers (those manufactured from man-made fibers) do not perform as well as bond papers in any printer, especially D640 printers. Each type has its own problems which result in poor feed and print quality performances. All synthetic papers must follow HP specifications, especially for caliper and fusing compatibility. Be cautious about heat-generated fumes which may be dangerous to breathe. Coated Paper Do not use papers where a coating has been added after the paper is produced. Most coated paper does not meet specifications for fusing compatibility, as well as all other specifications for D640 printers. Using Paper D-15, Purchasing, Handling, and Storing
Other Special MediaOdd sizes Check minimum and maximum supported sizes in Figure 3-4, Paper Sizes quick refer- ence, on page 3-4. Carbonless Paper Carbonless paper (NCR) is not supported by D640 printer. Recycled Paper Choose recycled paper that meets HP specifications (except perhaps brightness) and that has an appearance suitable for your needs. HP recommends that recycled paper contained no more than 5% groundwood.
Things to AvoidDO NOT attempt to print on any of the following: • Extremely shiny or glossy paper. • Very rough, textured, or embossed media. • Multipart forms or carbonless papers. • Media, media coatings, dyes, or inks that produce hazardous emissions or melt when exposed to a fusing temperature of 392°F (200°C). • Media that offsets or discolors. • Media with folds, staples, paper clips, etc. • Damaged, curled, wrinkled, or irregularly shaped media. • Letterhead paper produced using low temperature dyes or thermography. • Paper containing large amounts of clay or talc. • Media that have already been printed with a photo copier or a D640 printer. • Low quality recycled paper.
Purchasing, Handling, and StoringThe performance of D640 printers is dependent on the condition of the print media used. This section contains recommendations for purchasing, shipping, handling and storing media. Acceptable paper can be purchased from your local supply house. Ask your vendor to verify that the paper will work acceptably with a D640 printer. In the United States, overhead transparencies are supplied by Hewlett-Packard through HP SafetyNet (to order transparencies in Europe, contact your local HP sales office).

ShippingWhen print media are shipped through different environments, the entire stack of cartons on the shipping pallet should be plastic wrapped. When shipped across bodies of water, individual cartons should be wrapped, as well. Media should never be shipped in such a manner that they are damaged or bent along the edges. Using Paper D-17, Purchasing, Handling, and Storing
StoringAdhere to the following guidelines when stacking and storing print media: • DO NOT store cartons of reams directly on the floor; cartons should be placed on a pallet or on shelves. • DO NOT store individual reams in such a manner that they will curl or warp along the edges. • Rewrap partially used reams of paper before storing. • DO NOT stack more than six cartons high. • Stack each carton squarely on top of the one underneath. • Stack each carton upright. • DO NOT place anything on top of paper, regardless of whether the paper is packaged or not. • Store envelopes in a protective box so the edges will not be damaged. • Keep stored media away from extremes in temperature and humidity. • DO NOT store printed documents in vinyl folders (which may contain plasticizers), or expose the documents to petroleum based solvents.
Environmental ConsiderationsMedia should be protected from temperature and humidity extremes. D640 printers are designed to operate in a wide range of environmental conditions, but for best performance, media should be stored and used at 59°F to 95°F (15°C - 35°C), with a relative humidity of 40% to 60%. When media are used in an environment outside the ranges of temperature and humidity shown above, follow these guidelines: • DO NOT leave the media exposed to humidity or temperature extremes. Any extreme changes in the environment will cause the media to take on unwanted characteristics if left unwrapped or in the input tray of the printer. • Where humidity extremes occur, store paper in an airtight container, or seal it in plastic. • If there is a significant temperature difference between the media storage area and the printer’s operating environment, allow the media to adjust to the temperature in the printer’s operating environment before unwrapping. The greater the temperature difference and the greater the amount of media to equilibriate, the longer this time period should be. Allow one day for every 20°F (10°C) difference in temperature between storage environment and printing environment. Paper is affected by temperature and humidity variations during transport, storage, and use. When the atmosphere is moist, paper tends to have wavy edges; conversely, when the atmosphere is dry, paper tends to have wavy centers. D-18 Using Paper, Purchasing, Handling, and Storing
Using PaperAcclimatizing paper to the “best performance conditions” described above minimizes these adverse affects, but exposure to temperature and humidity extremes will eventually make acclimatization impossible. In extreme conditions, the paper may become unfit for use. For optimum results, keep paper supplies in moisture-proof packaging and load only the amount that will be used soon.
Printer Normal Operating EnvironmentThe specifications for the printer's operating environment are defined below. Observing these environmental guidelines helps ensure trouble-free printer operation.The temperature and humidity of the paper used with the printer should be in balance with the printer's environment. • Temperature 59°F to 95°F (15°C to 35°C) • Relative Humidity 20% to 80% • Altitude 0 to 7000 feet (0 to 2150 m) Total Operating Environment Figure D-4 is a map of the operating range of the printer, showing recommended maxima and minima for temperature and humidity. Operating the printer in the A,C, D, and E areas of Figure D-4 may result in lower-quality prints. 95°F (35°C) D 85°F (30°C) TemperatureABC65°F (18°C)

TroubleshootingPaper problems are somewhat difficult to detect. A series of steps will help isolate paper- induced problems. The steps to follow are: • Is it a paper or a printer problem? • Isolate a paper path • Isolate a paper brand • Isolate a paper type • Evaluate user’s paper practices • Evaluate environmental conditions Is it a Paper or Printer Problem? When determining a printer failure, a distinction must be made between problems relating to the printer itself and those involving paper. Often a problem which first appears to be related to the printer is actually a matter of poor paper selection or handling. To determine is a problem is printer or paper-induced a few simple steps can be helpful: • Turn paper over in the tray to print on the reverse side. • Rotate sheets 180° (end to end) to feed with a different leading edge. If the symptoms cease, or change in some way, it can be assumed that the problems are paper induced. Isolate a Paper Path The physical properties and composition of a particular paper influence its motion along a printer’s main paper path. As a general rule, the straighter a paper path, the more forgiving it is of the paper’s physical characteristics. Try Using the Straightest Paper Path Some problems can be avoided by using the straightest paper path. Feed paper from tray1. This path is recommended for transparencies and heavy basis weight media.
Ltr Ltr LtrFigure D-5 D640 paper paths D-20 Using Paper, Troubleshooting
Using PaperDetermine if the Problem is Due to Duplexing The duplexing feature may have both paper feed problems and print quality problems as a result of printing on paper that has just made a pass through the printer (resulting in increased paper curl). This paper curl increases image dropout, and pickup and stacking problems. The second pass is made with paper which may no longer meet the specifications for moisture and curl. Dry paper may not hold static charges which affect print quality and stacking. Image mis- alignment front-to-back on a duplexed page may be caused by paper shrinkage. Isolate the Source From Which the Printer Jams Where was the paper being fed from? Possible sources include: • Tray1, Tray2, Tray3 (500 20 pound paper sheets each) • High Capacity Input Unit (3000 20 pound paper sheets) Where Does the Jam Occur? Check where paper stops when a jam occurs. Types of jams that can occur include: • Input paper jams • Internal paper path jams • Output jams Is the Printer is Experiencing Multi-feed Jams? The following are some possible causes in multi-feeds. • Paper may be too light or too thin. Check the basis weight and caliper. • Paper may be too smooth or too rough. Check the finish. • Paper may have too much curl. Measure paper curl and check moisture content. • Paper may have bad edge cuts or edge welds. Observe the cut edge condition. • The customer may be attempting to print embossed paper, pre-printed forms, or perforated paper which does not meet HP specifications. (See the following section,"Isolate a Paper Type", for details about the difficulties of embossed paper.) • Paper may be loaded incorrectly. Turn over the sheets in the paper tray to determine if in- ream curl is the cause of misfeeds. • Customer may be fanning paper before loading it into the paper tray. • Customer may be adding paper in small amounts. Do not add small amounts of paper or mix types of paper in the tray. • The printer or paper storage environment may be too humid or too dry. (As a result, paper may be too moist or too dry). Determine if this is the case and advise the customer. Using Paper D-21, Troubleshooting Is the Printer Experiencing Misfeeds? The following are some possible causes in misfeeds. • Paper may be too stiff. Check basis weight and measure caliper. • Paper may be too smooth or too rough. Check the finish. • Paper may be too heavy or too light. Check the basis weight. • The customer may be attempting to print embossed paper, pre-printed forms, or perforated paper which does not meet HP specifications. (See the following section, "Isolate a Paper Type", for details about the difficulties of embossed paper.) • Paper may be loaded incorrectly. Turn over the sheets in the paper tray to determine if in- ream curl is the cause of misfeeds. • Customer may be fanning paper before loading it into the paper tray. • The printer or paper storage environment may be too humid or too dry. (As a result, paper may be too moist or too dry). Determine if this is the case and advise the customer. Isolate Paper Brand If the printer jams with only one brand of paper: • If the paper ream being used appears to be old, open a fresh ream of the same paper and load it properly into the printer. If the problem is remedied, investigate storage and handling conditions. • Do not purchase more paper than you can use in a short time (3 months). Paper stored for longer periods may experience heat and moisture extremes which can damage it. Planning helps prevent damage to your paper supply. • If the problem persists, try switching paper brands. Isolate a Paper Type When paper jams and other problems occur frequently, it is often because special paper is causing the difficulty. Use only paper that conforms to all HP specifications, and always test paper before purchasing large quantities. If future problems occur, the cause may be easily isolated to storage or handling conditions. Some types of media that may cause problems are: • Pre-printed forms and special letterhead • Embossed paper • Perforated paper • Adhesive labels • Envelopes • Transparencies • Chemically treated paper D-22 Using Paper, Troubleshooting
Using Paper• Synthetic paper • Coated paper • Other special media Refer to Table D-4, “Recommended paper specifications,” on page D-10 for a table of recommended media specifications. Printer Maintenance General cleanliness of the printer is the most important part of printer maintenance. Good maintenance improves the performance of any printer. Papers which create a lot of dust and debris in the printer require a more aggressive maintenance schedule. Areas which builds up paper dust heavily are: • pick-up rollers • paper guides Taking extra time to clean and inspect the paper path results in fewer paper jams and cleaner print. If problems continue after cleaning, inspect for wear or damage. Paper Stacking Consider the following guidelines when advising the customer about stacking paper: • Do not store cartons of reams directly on the floor; cartons should be placed on a pallet or on shelves. • Do not stack more than six cartons high. • Stack each carton squarely on top of the other. • Stack each carton upright. • Do not store individual reams in such a manner that they will curl or warp along the edges. • Do not place anything on top of paper, whether it is packaged or unpackaged. • Do not place paper close to heating or air conditioning vents or open windows.
Evaluate Environmental ConditionsPrinting Environment Ideally, the printing environment should be at or near room temperature, and not too dry or too humid. Remember, paper is hygroscopic; it absorbs and loses moisture rapidly. Heat works with humidity to damage paper. Heat causes the moisture in paper to evaporate, while cold causes it to condense on the sheets. Heating systems and air conditioners remove most of the humidity from the room. As paper is opened and used, it loses moisture, causing streaks and smudging. Humid weather or water coolers can cause the humidity to increase in a room. As paper storage is opened and used it absorbs any excess moisture, causing light print and dropouts. Using Paper D-23, Troubleshooting Paper Storage Environment Paper storage and handling is as important as the paper-making process itself. Paper storage environment conditions directly affect the feed operation. Do not purchase more media than you can use in a short time (3 months). Paper stored for long periods may experience damage from heat and moisture extremes. Planning is important to prevent damage to a large supply of paper. Unconverted paper in sealed reams can remain stable for several months before use. Converted papers have more potential for environmental damage, especially if they are not wrapped in a moisture-proof barrier. Maintain paper in a storage environment of 59° to 95°F (15° to 35°C), with a relative humidity of 40% to 60%. • Paper should be stored at or near room temperature. • The air should not be too dry or too humid (due to hygroscopic properties of paper). • The best way to store an opened ream of paper is to re-wrap it tightly in its moisture-proof wrapping. If the printer environment is subject to extremes, unwrap only the amount of paper to be used during the day’s operation. D-24 Using Paper,
