2 US WARNING ■ If anything strange occurs with the printer, unplug the power cord. If the printer emits smoke, strange smells, or strange sounds, turn off and unplug the printer to prevent fire or electric shock. Then contact your dealer. ■ Should any liquid or foreign object fall into the printer, unplug the power cord. Do not allow any liquids, metals, or inflammable objects to get into the printer through the vent. This may cause fire or electric shock. Turn off and unplug the printer, and then contact your dealer. ■ If the printer cabinet is damaged, unplug the power cord. Using the printer when the cabinet is damaged may cause fire or electric shock. Turn off and unplug the printer, and then contact your dealer. ■ If the power cord is damaged, unplug it. A damaged power cord may result in fire or electric shock. Turn the printer off and unplug the power cord while being careful not to touch the wires in the cord. Then contact your dealer. ■ Do not damage the power cord. A damaged power cord may result in fire or electric shock. To prevent the cord from being damaged, pay attention to the following. • Do not pull the cord with a jerk. • Do not bend the cord excessively. • Do not heat the cord. • Do not place heavy objects on the cord. • Do not rewire the cord. If the power cord is damaged, contact your dealer. ■ Do not disassemble or modify the printer. The printer has both hot and high voltage parts on the inside.

3 US WARNING ■ Do not place heavy objects on the printer. Doing so may deform the printer cabinet, resulting in fire or electric shock. If the printer falls out of place or is dropped, it may be damaged. ■ Do not install the printer in the following places. To prevent fire, electric shock, and printer malfunction do not install the printer in the following places. • Dusty, humid, or oily places Should any dust or liquid get into the printer, it may result in fire or electric shock. • Extremely hot places Do not expose the printer to direct sunlight or extremely high temperature such as near a heater. Doing so may deform the printer cabinet, resulting in fire or electric shock. Use the printer at the ambient temperature of 41 to 95 °F (5 to 35 °C) and humidity of 30 to 85 %. ■ Do not use the printer with a power supply other than that specified. Incorrect voltage may damage printer parts, possibly resulting in fire or electric shock. ■ Connect the power cord correctly. For example, if the power cord is plugged in loosely, it may cause a fire or electric shock. Push the plug all the way into the outlet. ■ Make sure that excessive dust and foreign matter do not accumulate on the power cord. Dust and foreign matter conduct electricity, which can cause fire and electric shock. If excessive dust and foreign matter accumulate on the cord, unplug the cord and clean it. ■ Immediately unplug the power cord when an electric storm starts outside. The induced electricity from storms may cause fire, electric shock, or printer malfunction. ■ Do not overload the power outlet. This printer should be plugged into a separate 120 V AC, 50/60 Hz circuit. If the printer is on a circuit with other appliances, an overload may cause fire or electric shock.

4 US CAUTION ■ Do not block the vent. Doing so may cause the printer to heat up, possibly resulting in fire or electric shock. • Do not block the top or side vent. • Do not put the printer in the following places. – Badly-ventilated place – On a soft surface like a rug or bed ■ Do not put the printer on an unstable surface such as a shaky table. If the printer falls out of place, it may injure someone. This may also damage the printer or cause the printer to malfunction. ■ Do not touch the non-user-serviceable parts inside the printer. Doing so may cause injury or burns. This applies especially to children and those unfamiliar with the printer. ■ Do not move the printer when the power cord is taut. Doing so may damage the cord, possibly resulting in fire or electric shock. When moving the printer, unplug and bundle the power cord. ■ Do not pull the cord with a jerk. To unplug the power cord, hold it by the plug. Pulling on the cord may damage it, possibly resulting in fire or electric shock. ■ Do not hold the power cord plug with wet hands. Doing so may cause an electric shock. Be sure hands are dry before handling.
Page: 9
5 US CAUTION ■ Unplug the power cord from the power outlet before cleaning the printer. Accidentally touching a non-user-serviceable part may cause electric shock. ■ Unplug the printer if it will not be used for an extended period of time, for example while you are on a long trip. Otherwise, deteriorated insulation or leakage current may cause fire or electric shock. ■ Beware of moisture condensation. Moisture condensation means that water vapor in the air becomes liquid and sticks to the printer surface. This phenomenon is caused by the following. • Rapidly heating the room in which the printer is placed • Cool air (from an air conditioner, etc.) blown directly at the printer • Moving the printer from a cold place to a warm place Moisture in the air will condense on the paper, deteriorating print quality or causing paper jams. Under conditions where moisture condensation has occurred or may occur, keep the printer turned on and wait until there is no possibility that condensation will occur. NOTE ■ Do not spray volatile solvent on the printer or allow the printer to be in contact with rubber or plastic products for an extended period of time. For example, spraying an insecticide on the printer or wiping it with thinner or benzine may deteriorate or discolor the printer cabinet. Such deterioration and discoloring also occurs if the printer is in contact with rubber or plastic products for an extended period of time.
