and remove the power cord from the outlet.
• When moving the machine, be sure to turn the power switch off and remove the power cord from the outlet.
• Do not cover the machine with a dust cover, cloth or plastic film while the power is on. Doing so may prevent heat
dissipation, damaging the machine.
• Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those specified herein may result in
hazardous laser radiation exposure.
• The socket-outlet should be installed near the machine and should be easily accessible.
IMPORTANT POINTS WHEN SELECTING AN
INSTALLATION SITE
Improper installation may damage the machine. Please note the following during initial installation and whenever the
machine is moved.
If the machine is moved from a cool place to a warm place, condensation may form inside the machine. Operation
Caution in this condition will cause poor copy quality and malfunctions. Leave the machine at room temperature for at least
2 hours before use.
Do not install your machine in areas that are:
• damp, humid, or very
dusty
• exposed to direct sunlight
• poorly
ventilated
• subject to extreme
temperature or humidity
changes, e.g., near an
air conditioner or
heater.
3
The machine should be installed near an accessible power outlet for easy connection and
disconnection.
Be sure to connect the power cord only to a power outlet that meets the specified voltage and
current requirements. Also make certain the outlet is properly grounded.
Note
Connect the machine to a power outlet which is not used for other electric appliances. If a lighting fixture is
connected to the same outlet, the light may flicker.
Be sure to allow the required space around the
machine for servicing and proper ventilation.

A small amount of ozone is produced within the machine during operation.
The emission level is insufficient to cause any health hazard.
Note:
The present recommended long term exposure limit for ozone is 0.1 ppm (0.2 mg/m3) calculated as an 8 hr. timeweighted average concentration.
However, since the small amount that is emitted may have an objectionable odor, it is advisable to place the
machine in a ventilated area.
CAUTIONS ON HANDLING THE MACHINE
Observe the following precautions when handling the machine to maintain top performance.
Do not drop the machine, subject it to shock or strike it against any object.
Store spare toner cartridges in a cool dry place without removing from the package before use.
• If they are exposed to direct sunlight or excessive heat, poor copies may result.

POWER SAVE MODES
The machine has two power save modes to reduce overall power consumption and thereby reduce the cost of
operation. These modes help conserve natural resources and reduce environmental pollution. The two power save
modes are "Preheat mode" and "Auto power shut-off mode".
The time settings for each mode can be changed in the key operator programs. (See the "Key operator’s guide".)
Preheat mode
When the set time elapses, the temperature of the fusing unit is automatically lowered to reduce power consumption
while on standby. The factory default setting is 15 minutes. To return to normal operation, touch any key on the
operation panel. To make a copy when the machine is in this mode, simply select the desired copy selections and
then press the [START] key (
).
Auto power shut-off mode
When the set time elapses, the power to the fusing unit automatically turns off to reduce power consumption. (This is
based on the guidelines of the International Energy Star Program.) The factory default setting is 60 minutes. When
the machine enters this mode, the touch panel screen turns off and only the [START] key (
) blinks. To return to
normal operation, press the [START] key (
). To copy after warm-up starts, make desired copy selections and
press the [START] key (

COPY FUNCTIONS
POINTS TO NOTE WHEN MAKING COPIES
Document glass and RSPF
• Paper in a different orientation from the original can be selected if the auto paper select or auto image function has
been selected. In this case, the image of the original will be rotated.
• When copying a book or an original that has been folded or crumpled, press down gently on the document
cover/RSPF. This will reduce shadow lines caused by uneven contact between the original and the document
glass.
• When the centre tray counter function is enabled, the number of pages that can be delivered to the output tray is
limited to 500 (A4 and 8-1/2" x 11" sizes only; the limit for all other sizes is 300 pages). When the offset function is
used, the limit is approximately 300 pages. When the limit is reached, copying stops and the [START] key ( )
light turns off. Remove the copies from the centre tray and then press the [START] key ( ) to resume copying.
The centre tray counter function can be disabled in the key operator programs. (See the "Key operator’s guide".)
Originals that can be used in the RSPF
A maximum of 100 sheet originals of equal size (A4, 90 g/m2 (8-1/2" x 11", 24 lbs.)) can be placed in the RSPF.
Originals of different length can be placed together in the RSPF as long the widths are equal; however, some copy
functions may not operate correctly.
Acceptable originals
Originals of size A5 to A3 (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" to 11" x 17") having a weight of 35 g/m2 to 128 g/m2 (9 lbs. to 34 lbs.) or
52 g/m2 to 105 g/m2 (14 lbs. to 28 lbs.) for two-sided originals can be used.
Other considerations
• Use originals that are within the specified size and weight ranges. Originals outside the specified ranges may
cause misfeeds.
• Make sure that there are no paper clips or staples on the original.
• If an original has damp spots from correction fluid or ink, or glue from pasteups, be sure it has dried completely
before using it to make a copy. Otherwise the interior of the RSPF or the document glass may become soiled.
• The following originals cannot be used. These may cause misfeeds, smudging, and unclear images.
• Transparencies, tracing paper, other transparent or translucent paper, photographs
• Carbon paper
• Thermal paper
• Originals that are creased, folded, or torn
• Glued originals, cut-out originals
• Originals with binder holes
• Originals printed using an ink ribbon (thermal transfer printing), originals printed on thermal transfer paper
Removing the document cover
• To copy large originals like newspaper, remove the document cover.
• To remove it, open the document cover and lift it at a slightly backward angle. To replace the cover, do the
reverse.
• The RSPF cannot be removed.

replacement at any time as little toner remains. When "CHANGE THE TONER CARTRIDGE." appears in the touch
panel, the toner cartridge must be replaced. Follow these steps to replace the cartridge.
Note
When running long copy jobs or copying originals with many areas of solid black, "TONER REPLENISHMENT IN
PROGRESS." may appear in the touch panel and copying may stop even though the cartridge still has toner.
When this occurs, the toner is being replenished. Replenishment will last about two minutes. When the [START]
key ( ) illuminates, press the [START] key ( ) to resume copying.

DOCUMENT GLASS AND DOCUMENT COVER/RSPF
If the document glass, document cover/RSPF, or scanning glass for originals fed from the RSPF (the long narrow
glass surface on the right side of the document glass) become dirty, the dirt may appear on copies. Always keep
these parts clean.
Stains or dirt on the document glass/document cover/RSPF will also be copied. Wipe the document glass, the
document cover, the RSPF and the scanning window on the document glass with a soft, clean cloth.
If necessary, dampen the cloth with water. Do not use thinner, benzene, or similar volatile cleaning agents.
Warning
Do not spray flammable cleaner gas. Gas from the spray may come in contact with the internal
electrical components or high-temperature parts of the fusing unit, creating a risk of fire or
electrical shock.
