1. How to Check the Paper Specifications on the 3130cn Dell Laser Printer

The following tables provide information on standard and optional print media.

Recommended Paper

  • To ensure the best print quality and feed reliability, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb) xerographic paper. Business paper designed for general business use also provide acceptable print quality.
  • Use only paper able to withstand high temperatures without discoloring, bleeding, or releasing hazardous emissions. The laser printing process heats paper to high temperatures. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine whether the paper you have chosen is acceptable for laser printers.
  • Always print several samples before buying large quantities of any type of print media. When choosing any print media, you should consider the weight, fiber content, and color.

Unacceptable Paper

The following papers are not recommended for use with the printer:

  • Chemically treated papers used to make copies without carbon paper, also known as carbonless papers, carbonless copy paper (CCP), or no carbon required (NCR) paper.
  • Preprinted papers with chemicals that may contaminate the printer.
  • Preprinted papers that can be affected by the temperature in the printer fuser.
  • Preprinted papers that require a registration (the precise print location on the page) greater than 0.09 in., such as optical character recognition (OCR) forms.
    In some cases, you can adjust registration with your software program to successfully print on these forms.
  • Coated papers (erasable bond), synthetic papers, thermal papers.
  • Rough-edged, rough or heavily textured surface papers, or curled papers.
  • Recycled papers containing more than 25% post-consumer waste that do not meet DIN 19 309.
  • Multiple-part forms or documents.
  • Print quality may deteriorate (blank spaces or blotches may appear in the text) when printing on talc or acid paper.
