copy or print job is in progress. Offering excellent overall ease of use, the X854e MFP features a well-designed color touch-screen control panel and makes use of the copy, scan to e-mail and fax functions very intuitive. The X854e also provides copy functionality normally not found on printer-based devices, such as job build, a job interrupt key and the ability to copy mixed-size originals through the document feeder. The X854e can also be enhanced with Lexmarks new Embedded Solutions Framework (eSF), which is a platform that allows for the development of Javabased applications directly on Lexmark MFPs. In many cases, the Lexmark eSF eliminates the need for a server to run customized software applications. Customers in large enterprise environments will benefit from this new scalable architecture because Lexmarks eSF allows solutions to expand as more devices are added without the need for additional servers. Also noteworthy are the devices impressive offering of security features. Based on its outstanding performance in BLIs extensive in-house testing, including a perfect reliability performance, BLI highly recommends the Lexmark X854e MFP for large workgroups requiring monochrome printing, copying, faxing and scanning for monthly print volumes of up to 85,000 impressions.
, and represent positive, negative and neutral attributes, respectively.
The Lexmark X854e MFP is certified highly reliable by BLI, completing a 150,000-impression durability test without experiencing a single misfeed and with no service calls required.
Offering excellent multitasking capabilities, the Lexmark X854e MFP enables users to program multiple copy jobs (the number is limited only by memory capacity) while the system is copying or printing.
A key strength of the Lexmark X854e MFP is the MarkVision Professional utility, which enables administrators to manage groups of devices on the net-

work. One of the most thorough and flexible such utilities BLI has evaluated to date, MarkVision makes setup on the network easy. It also identifies and enables monitoring of all Lexmark printers, as well as non-Lexmark devices, on a network. MarkVision Professional provides extensive real-time device status and print job status monitoring capabilities when a client module is installed at the workstation or limited real-time feedback when accessed via a Web browser. MarkVision Professional can also be used to disable printing from/scanning to the USB flash drive, take an inventory of all printers on the network and record all printing data and export that data to a database or spreadsheet.
MarkVision Messenger, a component of MarkVision Professional, allows administrators to receive e-mail messages based on errors or alerts.
FEEDBACK TO WORKSTATIONS
Feedback is available via a status window that may be accessed from either print driver. The status window provides real-time pop-up messages regarding status information and may be configured by the end user to open whenever a print job is sent, only when an error occurs at the device, only when a warning is sent regarding the device or print job, or instead of opening, to remain minimized on the taskbar where the icon will flash until the window is opened by the user.
While the status window does provide information on size and type of paper
in each drawer, it does not provide information on the amount of paper (only warnings if paper is Low or Empty).
EASE OF NETWORK SETUP
The drivers CD auto-launches and very clearly walks the user through the driver installation process. Users can select a custom install to install MarkVision Professional and enable bidirectional communication support along with the drivers.
While not uncommon for Lexmark devices, the administrator must use Add
a Port Wizard to create the Lexmark port for the X854e; creating the port and pointing the drivers to the port is a straightforward procedure.
The Lexmark X854e MFP ships with two drivers, PCL 6 and PostScript 3, that are compatible with Windows 98 SE, NT 4.0, 2000, Me, XP and Server 2003, as well as Linux, UNIX and Mac OS 8.6 and later and Mac OS X environments. The drivers tested on the Windows 2000 platform were well laid out and easy to use. The drivers are very graphical and provide selections for most of the commonly used features on the main screen. In addition, the PCL and PostScript print drivers are almost identical in layout, which will enhance ease of use in environments where both drivers will be used.
The drivers have a Job Summary feature (which can be enabled from the Other Options tab in either driver) that allows the user to view all of the driver selections before the job is spooled to the print queue or printer. This feature allows the user to confirm all of the print selections before printing the job, which could save toner and paper wasted on incorrectly printed documents.
PostScript 3 Driver
PCL 6 Driver
No problems were experienced with any of the test files used in the applications compatibility tests. Units are tested for compatibility on Windows 2000 platforms with Microsoft Word 2000, Microsoft PowerPoint 2000, Microsoft Excel 2000, Adobe PageMaker 7.0, Adobe Photoshop 6.0 and Adobe Acrobat 6.0 using 25 application test files, which contain text, graphics, halftone images, tables, etc., enabling BLI technicians to evaluate memory usage, file processing, font rendering and grayscale capability.
The X854e MFP was easy to use for scanning of documents to e-mail, FTP server, network folder and workstation (local folder). The scan preview feature allows users to preview the first page of a job on the control panel to verify settings, document orientation and placement. E-mail addresses on the corporate mail server can be accessed at the control panel of the X854e MFP using LDAP. In addition, destinations can be programmed or entered on the fly at the control panel via the QWERTY touchscreen keypad or entered remotely into an address book via the embedded Web page or the optional Lexmark Document Solutions Suite software.
The X854es scan to e-mail functions include an auto send-to-self feature, which automatically sends a copy of the scanned file to the users inbox while sending the file to the selected destination. Although not tested, the system offers network authentication, a security feature which requires users to log in (using their existing network ID and password) before performing any network scanning functions.
The unit performed well as a 33.6-Kbps fax, demonstrating good procedures for transmitting documents from memory after a failed communication and a faster than average scan-to-memory speed of 1.80 seconds per page (for the 4 percent page coverage fax test document tested; scan to memory speed for 12 percent page coverage fax test document is 1.83 seconds). This versatile unit also allows users to fax documents from their network-connected PCs using a PC fax driver that is accessible via the PostScript driver.
Output produced by the Lexmark X854e MFP in nearly all print and copy modes was very good. When printing using the default 2400IQ, characters were crisp and cleanly formed, lines forming the circumference of circles were of consistent line weight, thin lines on dark backgrounds were clearly visible, and horizontal and vertical lines displayed no stair-stepping. In addition, halftones were visible over a very broad range, although slight graininess was evident in halftone output. Copy output for line art, halftones and solids were equally good.
In print mode, overall simplex efficiency is competitive when compared to multifunction printers in this speed range tested to date; overall duplex efficiency is above average. In copy mode, overall efficiency rates in simplex and 1:2 duplex modes are above average when compared to multifunction printers in this speed range tested to date; 2:2 duplex efficiency is competitive. In addition, document feeding speeds are competitive to faster than average. When printing from the PostScript driver in the default 2400IQ resolution mode, the X854e MFP completed BLIs 19-page job stream at 57.70 percent of its rated engine speed, which is competitive for multifunction printers tested. Job stream efficiency rates when printing at 600 and 1200 dpi are also competitive.
EASE OF USE
As a printer, the X854e MFP offers good ease of use from the desktop via its print drivers, and its easy-to-follow installation process makes setting up the drivers quick and easy. The X854e MFP is also easy to use as a walk-up device; BLI test technicians were particularly impressed with the unit's control panel design, which is very intuitive to use for copy, scan and fax functions. It incorporates a customizable touch-sensitive 8" LCD display with an easy-to-navigate menu system, and functions, such as duplexing, are identified with names that will be easily recognizable by copier users.
Lexmark X854E Control Panel Overall ease of use as a walk-up device is enhanced by simple procedures for loading paper, adjusting paper drawers and removing misfeeds. Although a clean procedure, replacing the print cartridge is not as straightforward as with some other models; removing the cartridge from the X854e MFP requires not only opening the front access panel but also the side panel. The status window also provides Web links to the Lexmark Web site, technical support, documentation, drivers and online supplies ordering.
While the standard paper capacity of 3,100 sheets is competitive for models in this class, the maximum paper capacity of 5,100 sheets is 21.71 percent higher than the average for tabloid-size multifunction printers in this speed range. The standard memory of 256 MB is 40.54 percent higher than the average for multifunction printers in this range; the maximum memory capacity of 384 MB is 32.2 percent higher than the average. The custom job e-mail feature allows users to scan more than 75 pages from the ADF, to switch easily between the ADF or flatbed with the same settings, to create a PDF that contains both B&W and color (including images), and to use the scan preview when creating a scanned job. With the purchase of the optional Lexmark Document Solutions Suite (LDSS) software, users can automate manual workflow processes by programming multi-step scan, fax, copy, print, e-mail and archive functions into custom one-touch icons on the eTask interface of the control panel.
The X854e has a convenient USB port that allows the user to print files directly (without a PC) by plugging a flash drive into the printers control panel. Supported file types include PDF, JPG, TIF, BMP, HTML 4.0, DCX, PCX, GIF and PNG. The USB port also allows walk-up users to scan documents directly to a flash drive from the control panel. Other features include a standard 80-GB hard drive and an ImageQuick card, which allows users to store forms or documents on a Web site or central server and print the latest version from the printer control panel. The ImageQuick cardallows for the direct printing of a number of file formats, including HTML, JPEG, TIFF, PostScript and PCL, without using an application or a printer driver, simply by dragging and dropping them onto the icon representing the printer on the LAN using TCP/IP.
SECURITY & ACCESSIBILITY
The X854e MFP supports authentication with secure corporate directory browsing for controlled access to device and operations, such as sending, copying, faxing and using forms and to ensure that the users identity can be associated with the pages that are scanned and sent. In addition, LDAP information on the network is protected by SSL encryption. The X854e MFP also includes multiple LDAP features, such as native support (doesnt require external server), anonymous bind, simple bind, Kerberos support, encryption (i.e. SSL) and custom filters, as well as the ability for users to specify e-mail, fax or name mappings. The administrator can lock or disable certain operator panel menus at the device to prevent users from making unauthorized changes to device configuration. IPSec provides authentication and encryption of communications at the network layer allowing all application and network communications over the IP protocol to be secure. IPSec can be set up between the MFP and up to five hosts, using both IPv4 and IPv6. The administrator can set up user and/or group accounts to limit access to the control panel, status utility, fax and other device settings using MarkVision Professional. The Lexmark X854e MFP offers a number of standard print and hold functions, including confidential print (secure print) using PIN entry at the control panel (or using an optional card reader for confidentiality and device management), verify print (proof print), repeat print and reserve print. With the installation of an optional hard disk, administrators and/or end users may track print jobs as well.
The Confidential jobs option allows users to send a print job directly to the printer memory. The print job can be printed only after the user types a PIN into the printer control panel. After the job is printed, the printer deletes the job from the printer memory, which can be useful when users are printing sensitive or confidential documents that should not be left in the output bin after printing. Lexmarks PrintCryption solution provides high-level encryption security when printing confidential documents, securing proprietary or confidential information when transmitted over a TCP/IP network. The Lexmark PrintCryption Card decrypts the files, enabling users to print files that have been encrypted. Encrypted host data is decrypted in the printer using the PrintCryption Card, using the Rijndael encryption algorithm (a symmetric algorithm supporting key lengths of 128, 192, and 256 bits) selected by the National Institute of Science and Technology as the Advanced Encryption Standard.
PostScript Driver Confidential Print (security section)
The tested toner yield of the Lexmark X854es toner cartridge is competitive when compared to tested models in this speed range.
The X854e is priced more than $1,000 less than the average for multifunction printers in this speed range that support up to 11 x 17 output and include a standard network interface and automatic duplexing. Its supplies cost per page is 23.45 percent less than the average and the lowest of models in this class tested to date.

MarkVision Professional is a very flexible and powerful network management tool, which can identify Lexmark and nonLexmark printers on a network; documentation on MarkVision Professional lists other printers with which the utility is compatible. Like other Lexmark devices, the X854e MFP is designed to be alert-based, allowing the printer to report errors to the management utility when they occur so that users do not have to proactively request status information. At the workstation, end users may access MarkVision simply by using their Web browser or they may install a client module of MarkVision Professional. Capabilities of the powerful utility include the ability to limit access to the MarkVision Professional Web server by assigning privileges to individual users and/or groups, and to create sub-folders of the All Devices folder with filters attached (such as low on toner, so that any device reporting low toner will appear in that folder). MarkVision Professional 11.0 includes enhanced user authentication and security features to limit unauthorized access, such as print server password conformance for supported devices and Print Permissions Technology, which allows the administrator to restrict access to certain printer functions. Administrators can also use MarkVision Professional to disable printing from and scanning to the USB flash drive on the control panel.
Every user has full rights to any of the settings available in the MarkVision Professional software until accounts are created. The administrator can create user or group accounts and assign user privileges. Once the administrator has created accounts, anyone accessing the MarkVision utility will be required to log on to the Web server. The MarkVision server software also includes the MarkVision Messenger program, which allows the MarkVision server to run another application or send an e-mail message based on an event occurrence for a printer or group of printers. MarkVision Professional also has the ability to take an inventory of all printers on the network and record the data (the data may be customized by using filters), as well as export the data to a database or spreadsheet. The feature of exporting data may also be used in conjunction with MarkVision Professionals job accounting feature. Embedded Web page: Yes. The Lexmark X854es embedded Web page allows the user or administrator to view printer status and remaining
life of consumables (such as the percentage of maintenance kit life remaining); view/modify printer settings; print usage and configuration reports; and view basic printer information (such as memory and options installed). Consumables monitoring: Yes, via the embedded Web page, MarkVision Professional or the status window. The user or administrator can view remaining life of consumables, which includes a percentage of life remaining for the maintenance kit, the size and type of paper in each drawer and if there are any warnings for the paper drawers, indicated by Empty or Low. From the embedded Web page, users can check if the print cartridge is Empty or OK only.

Understanding paper and specialty media guidelines
Print media is paper, card stock, transparencies, labels, and envelopes. The last four are sometimes referred to as specialty media. The MFP provides high quality printing on a variety of media. A number of things must be considered concerning media before printing. This chapter provides information on making media selections and caring for media. Supported print media Selecting print media Storing print media Avoiding jams
For more details about the types of paper and specialty media your MFP supports, see the Card Stock & Label Guide available on the Lexmark Web site at www.lexmark.com. We recommend that you try a limited sample of any paper or specialty media you are considering using with the MFP before purchasing large quantities.

Labels upper limit1 Envelopes
Paper Sulfite, wood-free or up to 100% cotton bond
Use envelopes that can withstand temperatures of 230C (446F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions. If you have any doubts about the envelopes you are considering using, check with the envelope supplier. Adjust the width guide to fit the width of the envelopes. Do not load different size envelopes at the same time. A combination of high humidity (over 60%) and the high printing temperatures may seal the envelopes.
Note: This MFP is intended for occasional paper label printing only. The MFP can print on many labels designed for use with laser printers, except for vinyl labels. These labels are supplied in Letter size, A4 size, and Legal size sheets. Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats must be able to withstand temperatures of 230C (446F) and pressure of 25 pounds per square inch (psi). Try a sample of any labels you are considering using with the MFP before purchasing a large quantity. For detailed information on label printing, characteristics, and design, see the Card Stock & Label Guide available on the Lexmark Web site at www.lexmark.com/publications. After printing approximately 10,000 pages of labels (or each time you replace the toner cartridge), complete the following steps to maintain MFP feeding reliability:
Print five sheets of paper. Wait approximately five seconds. Print five more sheets of paper.
When printing on labels: Set the Paper Type to Labels in the Paper menu. Set the Paper Type from the MFP control panel, the MFP driver, or from MarkVision Professional. Do not load labels together with paper or transparencies in the same source; mixing media can cause feeding problems. Do not use label sheets with a slick backing material. Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam. Partial sheets also contaminate the MFP and the cartridge with adhesive, and could void the MFP and cartridge warranties. Use labels that can withstand temperatures of 230C (446F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions. Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 in.) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die-cuts of the label. Do not use label sheets that have adhesive to the edge of the sheet. Zone coating of the adhesive at least 1 mm (0.04 in.) away from edges is recommended. Adhesive material contaminates the MFP and could void the warranty. If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, remove a 3 mm (0.125 in.) strip on the leading and driver edge, and use a non-oozing adhesive. Remove a 3 mm (0.125 in.) strip from the leading edge to prevent labels from peeling inside the MFP. Portrait orientation is preferred, especially when printing bar codes. Do not use labels that have exposed adhesive.
Insert the screws saved from the cover plate (or the extra screws shipped with the card). Tighten the screws to secure the card.

Replacing the access panel
After you have installed options on the MFP system board, follow these steps to reattach the access panel.
Align the tabs on the right side of the access panel with the slots on the MFP. Slide the panel to the right and towards the MFP.
Tighten the screws.
Plug the MFP power cord back into a properly grounded electrical outlet, and turn on the MFP.
Replacing the access panel 95
Maintaining the MFP
Periodically, you need to complete certain tasks to maintain optimum print quality. These tasks are covered in this chapter. If several people are using the MFP, you may want to designate a key operator to do the setup and maintenance of the MFP. Refer printing problems and maintenance tasks to this key operator. In the U.S., contact Lexmark at 1-800-539-6275 for information about Lexmark Authorized Supplies Dealers in your area. In other countries or regions, visit the Lexmark Web site at www.lexmark.com, or contact the place where you bought the MFP.
Choose a cool, clean storage area for the MFP supplies. Store supplies right side up in their original packaging until you are ready to use them. Do not expose supplies to: Direct sunlight Temperatures above 35C (95F) High humidity (above 80%) Salty air Corrosive gases Heavy dust

Determining the status of supplies
Ready. 88 Toner low. Touch any button to begin.
The MFP control panel alerts you once a supply item or maintenance is required. The Print status message bar at the bottom of the touch screen indicates if the MFP is Ready and lets you know if any supplies are low or empty. Touching Status / Supplies on the bottom of the touch screen will open the Status / Supplies screen where you can view the status of the various trays and other supply items.

Using the restricted server list function
The Restricted Server List lets a system support person restrict which hosts are allowed to communicate with the MFP over the network which prevents other hosts from managing and printing to the MFP. Note: The Restricted Server List only restricts TCP traffic; it does not affect UDP traffic. The Restricted Server List supports up to ten host addresses or ten network addresses. To configure the Restricted Server List from the EWS of the MFP:
Open a Web browser. In the address line, enter the IP address of the MFP requiring configuration using the format: http://ip_address/. Click Configuration. Under Other Settings, click Network/Ports. Click TCP/IP. Enter the list of addresses in the Restricted Server List field for network communications permission separated by commas in the following format: 111.222.333.444. To indicate an entire subnet, provide the subnet mask bits in the format: 111.222.333.0/24. Click Submit.
Using the restricted server list function 135
Understanding MFP messages
The MFP displays three types of messages: status messages, attendance messages, and service messages. Status messages provide information about the current state of the MFP. They require no action on your part. Attendance messages alert you to MFP problems that require your intervention. Service messages also alert you to problems that require intervention. However, the MFP will stop printing and the errors are non-recoverable. It may be possible to power the MFP off and back on to temporarily recover from the service message error condition. For more information about MFP messages, see the Menus and Messages Guide on the Software and Documentation CD.
Online technical support
Technical support is available on our Lexmark Web site at www.lexmark.com.
Checking an unresponsive MFP
If the MFP is not responding, first make sure: The power cord is plugged into the MFP and a properly grounded electrical outlet. The electrical outlet is not turned off by any switch or breaker. The MFP is not plugged into any surge protectors, uninterrupted power supplies, or extension cords. Other electrical equipment plugged into the outlet is working. The MFP is turned on. The MFP cable is securely attached to the MFP and the host computer, print server, option, or other network device.
Once you have checked each of these possibilities, turn the MFP off, wait at least 10 seconds, and then turn the MFP back on. This often fixes the problem.
