•
Fingerprints or dust on the paper’s surface may degrade the print quality and cause
paper jams.
When print paper is transferred from a cool place to a hot place, vapor or dew will be
generated on the paper’s surface causing paper jams or degraded print quality. Leave
the print paper in the room to stabilize its temperature before use.
When print paper or ink ribbon runs out during printing, the printing operation stops and
the RIBBON/PAPER indicator lights or blinks. Set new ribbon cartridge and print paper.
Do not use wet or damaged paper. It may cause a malfunction.
Avoid touching or pulling the ink ribbon with your fingers. It may degrade the print quality.
When the ink ribbon is exhausted, replace it with a new one. A used ribbon cartridge is
not reusable.
Do not unpack the print paper and ribbon cartridge unless you are ready to use them.
The paper/ink ribbon set is a combination of ribbon cartridge and print paper. Use the
combination as provided in the box. Use of wrong combination may cause malfunction.

AFTER PRINTING
•
•
When the printed paper is touched with a wet hand, the print may be discolored.
Fading may occur if the print-face is exposed to organic chemical agents which may
affect print paper (e.g. alcohol, ester, ketene based).
Fading will be accelerated upon contact with PVC-based materials (e.g. adhesive tapes,
rubber erasers, etc.).
Do not put a print back into the paper cassette. Doing so can cause jams and loss of
completed prints.
Store prints in a cool, dry environment free of chemical contamination. Avoid exposure to
high intensity light sources, particularly fluorescent light and sunlight, which are high in
ultraviolet radiation.
•
•
•
•
Leaving the print paper in contact with PVC-based materials causes the print paper to
discolor or become stained.
Never store paper/ink ribbon set close to heaters or in hot, humid or dusty places.
Keep paper/ink ribbon set in a place where:
Temperature
: -4°F - 86°F (-20°C - 30°C)
Humidity
: 20% - 80% RH
