unusual odors or sounds) could lead to fire or
electric shocks.
Turn off the unit’s power immediately, then
unplug the AC power adapter from the power
outlet.
Check that no more smoke, etc., is being emitted, then contact a sales outlet for repairs.
Repairing the unit yourself is dangerous. Never
attempt to do so.
Handling the AC power adapter’s cord and plug
• Damaging the power cord could lead to fire or electric
shock.
• When installing, do not squeeze the power cord
between the product and a wall, rack, etc.
• Do not modify or damage the power cord.
• Do not place heavy objects on the power cord or pull
strongly on it.
• Do not place the power cord near heating appliances or
otherwise heat it.
• When unplugging the power cord, always do so by pulling on the plug, not the cord.
If the power cord should be damaged, ask your store of
purchase to replace it.
• If there is dust or metal objects on or near the power
plug’s blades, unplug the power cord then wipe the blade
area clean using a dry cloth. Continued use without cleaning the plug could lead to fire or electric shock.
• Do not plug in or unplug the power cord with wet hands.

Important Safety Information
Reflected Light from the Sheet Surface
Preventing Tipping (for stand type units)
The sheet surface of the main unit has a white glaze and
when a projector or other optical equipment is projected, the
reflected light could result in eye fatigue or other symptoms,
so please be careful.
For model M-115, an image can be projected on the copyboard when you switch to the screen panel.
Also note that the light emitted from laser pointers can be
linked to unexpected accidents, so please refrain from using
them.
To prevent tipping, heed the instructions below. Tipping
could lead to personal injury or damage the unit.
• Use the unit on a flat floor.
• Be sure to attach the supplied stabilizers to the stand, and
lock the stoppers of the casters. Failing to do so could
result in the unit tipping and could lead to personal injury.
• Do not lean against the unit or apply excess force to the
top of the unit.
Cautions on Usage
Do not use the included CD-ROM in a player
designed for audio CDs.
• Take care that the unit does not get wet and that water
does not get inside. Do not place objects containing chemicals, water or other liquids (vases, potted plants, glasses,
cosmetics, etc.) on top of the unit. The liquid could spill
and get inside the unit, leading to fire or electric shock.
• When lifting the unit to adjust the height, etc., the unit
should be lifted by at least two persons to prevent it from
tipping and causing personal injury.
• Do not move the sheet with paper or other objects
attached to it. Doing so could cause damage.
• Do not wipe the unit or sheet with thinner, benzene, alcohol or other such products. Doing so could cause discoloration or damage the sheet.
• Only use markers designed exclusively for this product.
Using other markers could damage the sheet. Also note
that it may not be possible to erase the ink of other
markers.
• When moving the (stand type) unit, remove the stabilizers
and release the caster locks. Hold the sides of the main
unit and move it gently. Avoid shocks.
• When not using for long periods of time, for safety be sure
to unplug the AC power adapter from the power outlet.
• Make entries within the effective reading size. (See page
E-9) Portions that are drawn outside of this range might
not be printed or copied when saving to USB memory or
personal computer.
• Never use the included CD-ROM in a player designed for
audio CDs. Doing so could produce loud noises that could
impair your hearing. These noises can also damage your
speakers.
Installation
• When mounting on a wall, be sure to check first that the
wall surface is strong enough to support the total weight of
the main unit, mount fittings and printer for a long period
of time (including during earthquakes). If the wall is not
strong enough, reinforce it before mounting the unit.
• Getting water on or inside the unit etc., could lead to fire
or electric shock. Be particularly careful when using the
unit near a window when it is raining or snowing and when
using it near the shore of the ocean and lakes.
• Do not set the unit in hot places exposed to direct sunlight
or in places exposed to an air conditioner or heating duct.
Do not set the unit in places exposed to soot or humidity
(near humidifiers, etc.).
• When the power plug will be unplugged from the power
outlet, please place the Copyboard near the power outlet
so that it may be reached easily.

Important Safety Information
Cleaning
Do not draw on the screen (model M-115)
• If the sheet is dirty, wipe it clean using a damp, thoroughly
wrung out cloth. For tough dirt, apply some diluted neutral
detergent to a cloth, wipe off the dirt, then wipe again to
remove any detergent.
Wait until the sheet is completely dry before using it.
• Do not wipe the copyboard or sheet with thinner, benzene,
alcohol, etc. Doing so could cause discoloration or damage the sheet.
• Wipe of any marks from markers on the pen tray or the
frame cover using a damp, thoroughly wrung out cloth.
For cleaning of the printer, please refer to the printer’s
operating instructions.
The screen is designed exclusively for use with optical devices. If you draw on the screen, the ink cannot be erased with
the included eraser. If you accidentally draw on the screen,
wipe off the ink with a diluted solution of neutral detergent,
then carefully wipe off any remaining detergent.

• This product includes parts considered as “strategic
material” as per the Foreign Exchange and Foreign
Trade Control Act of Japan. Authorization as per said
Act is required to export this product from Japan.
Handling the CD-ROM
• Do not touch the surface which has no printing (the surface on which the data is recorded). If this surface is dirty
the data will not be read properly.
Also, do not stick paper, stickers, etc., on the CD-ROM.
• Do not leave for long periods of time in places exposed to
direct sunlight or near heating appliances, and do not drop
or bend the CD-ROM. The disc may get warped, making it

Main Functions
Text or images drawn on the copyboard’s sheet surface can be printed in color or black
and white on regular paper.
A press of the “Print” button on the operation panel quickly prints what has been hand written on the sheet surface
to regular LETTER or A4 size paper.
By mitigating the need to take notes, the participants of the meeting can concentrate on the agenda.
The paper printout can be written on and a stamp can also be affixed which is convenient if it is to be kept as a
record of the meeting, or circulated. The printer can continuously print a maximum of 20 sheets.
Text or images drawn on the copyboard’s sheet surface can be stored in a USB memory
device as image files.
When a USB memory device is inserted into the bottom of the control panel and the “Save” button is pressed, the
material drawn by hand on the sheet surface is stored as an image file in the USB memory device.
Text or images drawn on the copyboard’s sheet surface can be loaded directly onto a computer as image files.
The copyboard can be connected to a computer via USB cable and one page worth of material can be loaded onto
the computer as image data.
4 copyboard pages + 1 screen (model M-115)
In addition to the 4-page copyboard function, this model includes a screen designed for projecting images with a
regular or overhead projector. This screen can be selected at the touch of a button. A single machine serves as both
the copyboard and projector screen, saving space and preparation time.
* You cannot draw on the screen with markers. Also note that you cannot print images projected on the screen surface or save them on a USB memory device or computer.
Maintenance-free, Low Power Consumption
RGB, 3-primary-color LEDs are used as the reading light source which means that there is no need to replace a fluorescent tube as with previous copyboard models. In addition, unlike fluorescent tubes, LEDs need only be lit when
reading the sheet surface which is reflected in low power consumption.

the ruled line may appear on the copy.
In the case of the combination of Deep and Color Mode, the black ink may be mixed into other color.
• The built-in memory accumulates the read data that was previously printed or stored in USB memory. This data is erased
when the power is switched off with the ON/Standby
button.

Using USB Memory
Saving Image Files to a Personal Computer, and Deleting Image Files
Examples of operations follow for saving the image files in the USB memory device to the hard disk of the personal computer,
and for deleting the folder when the USB memory capacity is full. (There are various methods that can be used for saving and
deleting including the use of Explorer.) See the instruction manual of your personal computer or the software that you are
using for information about using a personal computer.
The folder name of the copyboard inside USB memory is M-11. Image files are stored in this folder. Image file names are
stored as PV-xxxxxx.png (a PNG file) and PV-xxxxxx.htm (an HTML file). “xxxxxx” stands for the date and number (e.g., PV06110801.png, PV-06110801.htm).
Notice
To obtain a display and printing that matches the screen size, open the HTML file in a browser and use the browser.
Note
The HTML file and PNG file are associated; therefore, use them as a pair when moving or copying to a separate folder.
Plug the USB memory device into a USB port of the
personal computer
When connecting to the personal computer for the first time, the
installation of a USB driver is required. Follow the instructions
manual of the USB memory device that you are using.
• Usually, with Windows 2000/XP the standard driver is installed
automatically and is identified as “Removable disk” in “My
Computer.”
Saving the image files of a USB memory
device to a personal computer
1. Open “My Computer” and from within,
open the drive of the connected USB
memory device.
The folder named “M-11” is the saved data of the
copyboard.
2. S t o r e t h e “ M - 1 1 ” f o l d e r i n “ M y
Documents” or another location.
All of the data contained in “M-11” will be stored.
Notice
Depending on the computer’s usage environment,
these operations may not work properly. This could
be the case for example:
• when several USB devices are connected simultaneously to the computer.
• when the USB device is connected to a USB hub or
when it is connected using an extension cable.
