Menu Item PAPER SIZE Values and Functions of the Menu Items
The PAPER SIZE setting identifies the default formatting size for each paper source. It is important to select the correct paper size from the menu when using paper sources. Some paper sources have size sensing. This means the printer can automatically determine the size of print materials installed in the source. The PAPER SIZE setting for size sensing sources cannot be modified through the operator panel. You must install the size you want in the source. Note: For paper and envelope sources without size sensing, the factory default is country specific. For sources with size sensing, the factory default is the size that is installed in the source. To determine if a source has size sensing, see Paper Sources on page 140. If your printer model is configured with a multipurpose feeder, the Manual Pap Size and Manual Env Size settings are available for selection. These sizes are used when manually feeding envelopes or other print material. MP Feeder Size is also available and displayed on the operator panel when the multipurpose feeder is present on the printer model and Configure MP is set to Cassette. To configure the multipurpose feeder as a Cassette, set the Configure MP menu item to Cassette. See Configure MP on page 68 for more information. See Paper Size Specifications on page 144 and Envelope Size Specifications on page 145 for more information. Universal size refers to any size that is not considered a standard size.

The PAPER TYPE setting lets you specify the type of print material installed in each source. The PAPER TYPE setting is used by the printer in the following ways: Enables the printer to optimize print quality for the specified print material. Enables you to select paper sources through your software application by selecting only a type and size. A source selection is unnecessary. Enables the printer to automatically link paper sources. Any sources that contain the same type and size of print material are automatically linked by the printer. If your printer model is configured with a multipurpose feeder, the Manual Paper Type and Manual Env Type are available for selection. These types are used when manually feeding envelopes or other print material. MP Feeder Type is also available and displayed on the operator panel when the multipurpose feeder is present on the printer model and Configure MP is set to Cassette. To configure the multipurpose feeder as a Cassette, set the Configure MP menu item to Cassette. See Configure MP on page 68 for more information. Custom Type 1 through 6 refers to names you defined for special types of print materials you use. You set the names through a utility, such as MarkVision. For example, if you are using three different letterheads for different professionals in your business, you could define a custom type name based on the name on their letterhead paper. For more information on setting the Custom Type names, see CUSTOM TYPES on page 66. Note: If you are using different print material in the paper sources (trays), each source with a different print material must have the PAPER TYPE set to a unique value to disable the automatic linking feature.
* Factory default Using the Operator Panel and Menus
For example, if you have an Optra S 2455 with two optional trays attached, and you have 215.9 x 279.4 mm (8.5 x 11 in.) size plain paper, labels, transparencies, letterhead, and colored paper loaded into Trays 1 through 5 respectively, you need to set the paper type for each source. Otherwise, if one tray becomes empty, the printer selects print material from another tray since the printer sees the trays as linked. This might cause a one-page letter to print on a sheet of labels or on a transparency. Custom Type x (x represents a custom type from 1 to 6) - Paper* - Card Stock - Transparency - Labels - Envelope The CUSTOM TYPES setting identifies the kind of print material used for each of the Custom Types 1 - 6 available in the PAPER TYPE menu item. This print material designation optimizes print quality settings when you select print material from a source when the type is set to Custom Type x. If a user-defined name is available, this name is displayed instead of Custom Type x, where x represents a number 1 through 6. The user-defined name is truncated to 14 characters. Standard Bin* Bin 1 Bin 2 Bin 3 The Output Bin setting identifies the default exit for printed material. The standard bin is located on top of the printer. Each additional bin, represented by numbers, is available for each output option installed. If a userdefined bin name is assigned to an output option, the name is used instead of the bin number to designate the output option. For information on how many output bins your printer model may have, see Paper Exits (Output Bins) on page 153.
See Grain Direction on page 127 for specific recommendations. Pressure sensitive area must enter the printer first. For example, the base enters last. 3 100% cotton content maximum weight is 24 lb bond. lb bond envelopes are limited to 25% cotton content.
For detailed information, refer to the Card Stock & Labels Guide, which is available from Lexmark.
Print Material Characteristics
The paper characteristics defined below affect printing quality and reliability. We recommend that you keep these guidelines in mind when evaluating new paper stock.
The printer can automatically feed paper weights from 60 to 176 g/m2 (16 to 47 lb bond). Paper lighter than 60 g/m2 (16 lb) might not be stiff enough to feed properly, causing paper jams. For best performance, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb bond) grain long paper. If you want to print on print materials narrower than 182 x 257 mm (7.2 x 10.1 in.), the basis weight must be greater than or equal to 90 g/m2 (24 lb bond).
Curl is the tendency of paper to curve at its edges. If curl is excessive, it can cause paper feeding problems. Curl usually occurs after the paper passes through the printer, where it is exposed to high temperatures. Storing paper unwrapped in humid conditions, even in the paper tray, can contribute to paper curling.
The degree of smoothness of paper directly affects print quality. If the paper is too rough, the toner does not fuse to the paper properly, resulting in poor print quality. If the paper is too smooth, it can cause paper feeding problems in the printer. Smoothness needs to be between 100 and 400 Sheffield points; however, smoothness between 100 and 250 Sheffield points produces the best print quality.
The amount of moisture in the paper affects both print quality and the ability of the printer to feed the paper properly. Leave the paper in its original wrapper until you are ready to use it. This limits the exposure of the paper to moisture changes that can degrade its performance.
The printer can print on many labels designed for use with laser printers. These labels are supplied in letter-size and A4-size sheets. When printing on labels, be sure to select Labels in the PAPER TYPE menu in the PAPER MENU. Do not load labels together with paper or transparencies in the same paper tray. Combining print materials can cause feeding problems. Do not load partial sheets with areas exposed by missing labels. This can cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a paper jam. Partial sheets will also contaminate your printer and your cartridge with adhesive, and could void your printer and cartridge warranties. Labels are one of the most difficult print materials for laser printers. A special fuser cleaner should be used for label application to optimize feed reliability. See Ordering a Label Fuser Cleaner on page 248 for more information.
After continuously printing approximately 10,000 page sides of labels (or each time you replace the print cartridge), complete the following steps to maintain printer feeding reliability:
Print 5 sheets of paper. Wait approximately 5 seconds. Print 5 more sheets of paper.
For detailed information on label printing, characteristics, and design, refer to the Card Stock & Labels Guide, which is available from Lexmark.
The liner, also known as the carrier or backing, is the material the label is attached to. The liner carries the label through the printer. Tissue or plain bond, porous, lay-flat liners are preferred. Toner contamination is reduced and feed performance improves with these liners. Slick non-porous liners are harder to feed and increase toner buildup in the fuser and on the backup roll. Rough liners can increase paper path friction, which leads to skew and paper jams. Excessive paper dust or chaff may affect print quality. Contact your forms supplier for additional information on liners.
There are two major types of label adhesives: removable and permanent. Each type, with proper design, has been used successfully with your printer. Acrylic based adhesives are generally preferred for cut-sheet label printers. The major adhesive problem is printer and cartridge contamination. Adhesive must be kept out of contact with paper path guides, drive rollers, charge roller, cartridge photoconductor drum, transfer roller, and detack fingers. This is accomplished through proper label design and the use of full label sheets (sheets that do not have areas exposed by missing labels). The adhesive can melt if the sheet stops in the fuser during a paper jam. The
If the liner is perforated, make sure that no adhesive accumulates on the top or back of the label sheet. The perforation line should stop 1.6 mm (0.06 in.) from the edge of the sheet to prevent jams and tearing of the sheet within the printer path. Perforations
should be ironed to reduce the thickness caused by the perforation process and to reduce nesting of forms. Edges should be smooth and clean with no roll-over. Laser-perfs (also known as micro-perfs or data-perfs) of 20 to 30 perfs per inch are generally more stable and are preferred. The smaller perforations do not normally nest or create excessive paper dust and debris (paper chaff). Make sure paper chaff created during the conversion process is removed before packaging.
Stripped edge matrix is the area around the outer edge of the cutsheet, which is sometimes removed before printing. Total strip matrix, the non-print area around each die-cut label, is also sometimes removed before printing. This helps you peel the labels from the backing. Butt-cut labels are cut flush to one another, with no area inbetween. Butt-cut labels may or may not have an edge matrix removed. Die-cut labels are cut with a non-print area between each label. If you are using a butt-cut or die-cut label, make sure adhesive contamination does not occur. We recommend a maximum stripped edge matrix of 3 mm (0.125 in.) along the outer edge or zone coating with a non-adhesive perimeter of 1 mm. For best results, do not print within 1.02 mm (0.04 in.) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die-cuts of the label. The use of cut-sheet labels that have adhesive to the edge of the sheet will contaminate your printer and cartridge, and could void your printer and cartridge warranties. When using vinyl, polyester, paper, or dual-web labels without zone coating, butt-cut labels without any stringers (adhesive pulls) and with a stripped edge matrix of 3 mm (0.125 in.) are preferred. If a total strip matrix is used, print before removing the matrix. If matrix must be removed before printing, round all corners and make sure adhesive is not exposed. Minimize die-cutting,
especially through the backing material. Die-cuts should be at least 1 mm (0.04 in.) from printed areas. Back slits or pop-out windows are not recommended. A non-print area (waste strip) around the outer edge of the sheet is also recommended as part of the label design. For a letter size sheet in portrait orientation, allow 8.38 mm (0.33 in.) for the non-print area along the top and bottom edges. Allow 6.35 mm (0.25 in.) for the non-print area along both sides.
Load paper with the left edge of the stack against the stack height limiter and with the recommended print side face up.
Load envelopes with the flap side down. The stamp area and flap are on the left side. The end of the envelope with the stamp area enters the multipurpose feeder first.
Note: Do not feed stamped envelopes. The stamp is shown for placement only. WARNING: Never use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows, coated linings, or self-stick adhesives. These envelopes may severely damage the printer.
Load transparencies with the left edge of the stack against the stack height limiter.
Load letterhead paper for single-sided printing with the design face up. The top edge of the sheet with the logo should enter the printer first.
Load letterhead paper for duplex printing with the design face down. The top edge of the sheet with the logo should enter the printer last.
Note: See Print Materials on page 124 for information on selecting types of print materials.
Slide the print material into the multipurpose feeder as far as it will go. Do not force it. Forcing causes buckling of the print material.
Make sure you have not loaded too much print material. The stack should fit loosely under the stack height limiter. The print material buckles if you load a stack that is too deep or push the stack in too far. Slide the paper width guide to the left until it lightly touches the stack of print material. Do not bend the print material.
Using the Multipurpose Feeder
After loading print material in the multipurpose feeder, select the paper source from your software application, and then select the paper size and type from both your software application and from the printer operator panel. To set the printer operator panel:
Make sure the PAPER SIZE for the multipurpose feeder (MP Feeder Size) is set to the correct size paper, envelope, or other print material you are loading. Make sure the PAPER TYPE for the multipurpose feeder (MP Feeder Type) is set to the correct value for the print material you are loading. Press Go to return the printer to the Ready status message.
Note: Software settings may override operator panel settings.
Closing the Multipurpose Feeder
Remove print material from the multipurpose feeder.
Push the metal bar straight back to collapse the multipurpose feeder to its short-length position.
Understanding Printer Messages
This chapter describes the various messages that may appear on your printer operator panel display. Status messages give information about the current state of the printer. Attendance messages indicate printer errors that you must resolve. Service messages indicate printer failures that may require servicing.
The first line (line 1) on the display provides information on the current state or status of the printer, as shown in the table beginning on page 178. However in some cases, a message is long enough that it requires both lines to display the entire message. Usually, the second line (line 2) on the display provides additional information about printer status. See Line 2 Messages on page 182.

You should be able to remove the paper jam from the output expander indicated by the message; however, in this case you may need to open the rear door of another output expander to remove the jam since the paper is between two output expanders.
Locate and push the latches in toward the center. The output expander rear door opens and drops down fully.
Open the output expander rear door for the output expander installed above.
Pull the paper straight out from the expander that has more clearance space to access the jam.
While you have two output expander rear doors open, check to see if you have jams as described in In an Output Expander Tray, But Resistance on page 244.
Close both of the output expander rear doors. Make sure all rear door latches are closed.
In an Output Expander Tray, But Resistance
Paper jams as it exits to an output expander tray and a short portion of the paper is visible. Try to pull the paper from the front of the tray first, but if you are not successful complete the following steps.
Locate the paper jam that is visible from an output expander tray. Locate and push the latches in toward the center. The output expander rear door opens and drops down fully.
Open the output expander rear door for the one installed above. When complete, two output expander rear doors are open.
Pull the paper from the back area of the output expander straight out toward you. Pull the paper from the output expander with more clearance space.
Maintaining Your Printer
Even though your printer is easy to maintain, you may want to designate a key operator to do the setup and maintenance of your printer. All users sharing the printer should refer printing problems and maintenance tasks to this key operator. From time to time, youll need to replace the print cartridge and fuser cleaner, clean the printer, and replace the charge roll. Replacement of routine maintenance items (fuser assembly, transfer roller, charge roll and paper feed rollers) should be done at regular intervals to maintain top performance and avoid print quality problems and paper feed problems resulting from worn parts. Optra S 2455 displays an 80 Scheduled Maintenance message, after you have printed 250,000 pages, to let you know that these items should be replaced. For your convenience, Lexmark offers a maintenance kit that contains the routine maintenance parts needed for the Optra S 2455. To purchase a maintenance kit, contact Lexmark or the place where you bought your printer. We recommend that the maintenance kit items be installed by a trained servicer. If you purchase your maintenance kit directly from Lexmark, labor to install these items is included during the product warranty period. The Lexmark maintenance kit part numbers are:
Installing an Optional Output Expander
Turn the printer power Off (O).
Grasp the top cover and pull it up to remove it.
The top portion of the printer is exposed.
Insert the mounting brackets located on each side of the output expander into the mounting slots located on each side of the exposed area in the top portion of the printer. To help maintain alignment of the brackets to
the slots, align the right and back edges of the output expander with the corresponding edges of the top portion of the printer.
Note: Make sure the output expander is connected securely.
If you follow these steps to install a output expander on top of another one, the mounting slots on the output expander look as shown:
Locate the four tabs on the output expander tray and the four slots on the output expander. There are two of
each on each side.
Hold the output expander tray on both sides and tilt the front toward you. Slide the lower tabs on the tray fully into the lower slots on the output expander.
Rotate the output expander tray upward from the front and slide the upper tabs on the tray into the upper slots on the output expander. The tabs click in place.
Note: At this point, you may attach another output expander to the output expander you just installed. To do this, complete step 3 on page 284 again, but install the mounting brackets of the second expander into the mounting slots on the first output expander you installed. Complete step 4 on page 286 to step 6 on page 287 to install the second output expander tray.
Align the tabs on the left side of the top cover with the left side of the opening at the top of the output expander. The tabs must go underneath the left side cover of the output expander.
Push the right side of the top cover down until it snaps into place on the output expander.
Note: Verify that the output expander is installed properly. See Verifying the Installation of Options on page 325.
Removing an Output Expander Tray
To remove the output expander tray:
Hold the edge of the tray and lift it up so the lower tabs come out of the slots on the output expander.
Pull the tray straight out toward you to remove the upper tabs from the output expander slots.
Changing Output Bin Settings
You can select output bin functions from the operator panel or from your software application, if it supports output bin selection. If the software setting differs from the operator panel setting, the software setting overrides the panel setting. For example, if you select Bin 2 from the operator panel, but the software specifies the printer standard bin, the printer prints to the printer standard bin. If you select Bin 2 from the operator panel, but the software specifies output bin 3, the printer prints to output bin 3. The factory default is the printer standard bin, which is shown on the operator panel as Standard Bin. When one output option is installed, the PAPER MENU includes an additional value for the Output Bin setting, which is Bin 1. For example, if all optional output expanders are installed for the Optra S 2455, the operator panel displays all values for the Output Bin setting in the PAPER MENU: Standard Bin, Bin 1, Bin 2, and Bin 3.
Press Select to select Print Menus. The message Printing Menu Settings is displayed. The menu settings page prints.
Look for the option name on the printed page. If the option does not appear on the page, it is not installed securely in place or aligned properly. Remove the option and install it again. Print the menu settings page again.
This appendix contains basic information about fonts, their characteristics, and the specific fonts available in PCL emulation, and PostScript Level 2 emulation. Note: PCL emulation refers to printer emulation when it is responding to either PCL 5 or PCL 6 data stream commands. Differences in the way fonts are handled when in PCL 5 emulation or PCL 6 emulation are noted in this appendix.
Typefaces and Fonts
A font is a set of characters and symbols created with a distinct design. The distinct design is called a typeface. The typefaces you select add personality to a document. Well chosen typefaces make a document easier to read. The printer has numerous resident fonts in PCL emulation and PostScript Level 2 emulation. See Resident Fonts on page 334 for a listing of all resident fonts.
Weight and Style
Typefaces are often available in different weights and styles. These variations modify the original typeface so you can, for example, emphasize important words in text or highlight book titles. The different weights and styles are designed to complement the original typeface. Weight refers to the thickness of the lines that form the characters. Thicker lines result in darker characters. Some words commonly used to describe the weight of a typeface are bold, medium, light, black, and heavy. Style refers to other typeface modifications, such as tilt or character width. Italic and oblique are styles where the characters are tilted. Narrow, condensed, and extended are three common styles that modify the character widths. Some fonts combine several weight and style modifications; for example Helvetica Narrow Bold Italic. A group of several weight and style variations of a single typeface is called a typeface family. Most typeface families have four variations: regular, italic, bold, and bold italic. Some families have more variations, as the following illustration for the Helvetica typeface family shows:
Helvetica Helvetica Italic Helvetica-Bold Helvetica-BoldItalic ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
Helvetica-Narrow Helvetica-Narrow Italic Helvetica-Narrow Bold Helvetica-Narrow-BoldItalic
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUWXTYZ ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
Pitch and Point Size
The size of a font is specified as either a pitch or point size, depending on whether the font is fixed space or proportional. In fixed space fonts, each character has the same width. Pitch is used to specify the size of fixed space fonts. It is a measure of the number of characters that will print in one horizontal inch of type. For example, all 10-pitch fonts print 10 characters per inch (cpi) and all 12-pitch fonts print 12 cpi:
Your printer uses different scalable font formats for downloading fonts to the printer. PCL 5 emulation uses Intellifont and TrueType scalable fonts. PCL 6 emulation uses TrueType scalable fonts only. PostScript Level 2 emulation uses Type 1 and TrueType scalable fonts. There are thousands of different scalable fonts available in these different font formats from numerous font suppliers. If you plan to use many downloadable bitmapped or scalable fonts or if you plan to use many different sizes of scalable fonts, you may need to purchase additional memory for your printer. See Printer Memory Option on page 299 for more information.
Your printer comes equipped with resident fonts stored permanently in printer memory. There are 75 scalable fonts in PCL 5, PCL 6 and PostScript Level 2 emulation. In addition, PCL 5 has two bitmapped fonts.
You can select the following resident scalable fonts from the printer operator panel or from your software application. The following fonts are available for all printer models in the following printer languages: PCL 5 emulation, PCL 6 emulation, and PostScript Level 2 emulation. See Printing a Font Sample List on page 339 for more information. The font names shown below are for PCL 5 emulation. In PCL 6 emulation and PostScript Level 2 emulation, some of the font names will be slightly different for technical reasons.
