Field strengths from fixed transmitters, such as base stations for radio (cellular/cordless)
telephones and land mobile radios, amateur radio, AM and FM radio broadcast and TV
broadcast cannot be predicted theoretically with accuracy. To assess the electromagnetic
environment due to fixed RF transmitters, an electromagnetic site survey should be
considered. If the measured field strength in the location in which the Model P95DW/P95DE
is used exceeds the applicable RF compliance level above, the Model P95DW/P95DE
should be observed to verify normal operation. If abnormal performance is observed,
additional measures may be necessary, such as reorienting or relocating the Model
P95DW/P95DE.

Over the frequency range 150 kHz to 80 MHz, field strengths should be less than 3 V/m.
Recommended separation distances between
portable and mobile RF communications equipment and the Model P95DW/P95DE
The Model P95DW/P95DE is intended for use in an electromagnetic environment in which radiated
RF disturbances are controlled. The customer or the user of the Model P95DW/P95DE can help
prevent electromagnetic interference by maintaining a minimum distance between portable and

PRECAUTIONS
In the interest of safety, please observe the following precautions:
POWER REQUIREMENT
This digital monochrome printer is designed for operation
on 100-240V AC 50/60Hz. Never connect to any outlet
or power supply having a different voltage or frequency.
WARNING : THIS APPARATUS MUST BE EARTHED.
AVERTISSEMENT : CET APPAREIL DOIT ETRE MIS
A LA TERRE.
This equipment is classified as class , according to the
type of protection against electric shock.
PROTECTIVE MEASURES
IF ABNORMALITIES ARISE, . . .
Use of the unit during emission of smoke or abnormal
sounds (without adopting countermeasures) is dangerous. In such a case, unplug the power cord from the
source outlet immediately, and request maintenance services from the sales dealer.
NEVER INSERT ANY OBJECT INTO THE UNIT
Foreign objects of any kind inserted into this unit constitute a safety hazard and can cause extensive damage.
If any object should be inserted into the unit, unplug the
power cord, then contact the sales dealer.
DO NOT PLACE ANYTHING ON THE UNIT
Heavy objects placed on the unit can cause damage or
obstruct proper ventilation.
PROTECT THE POWER CORD
Damage to the power cord may cause fire or shock hazard. When unplugging, hold by the plug only and remove
carefully.
Never put heavy objects on the power cord. The cord
may be damaged causing a fire or electric shock.
DO NOT PLACE WATER CONTAINERS ON THE UNIT
Do not place flower vases, and other water-holding containers on the unit. If, for some reason, water seeps to
the inside of the unit, unplug the power cord from the
source outlet, and contact the sales dealer. If used without corrective measures, the unit may be damaged.
DO NOT REMOVE THE CABINET
Touching internal parts is dangerous or may lead to malfunction. Contact the sales dealer to carry out internal checks
and/or adjustments. Before opening the cover to clear a
paper jam, etc., be sure to disconnect the power cord plug.
DO NOT ATTACH A SCREW MORE THAN 6MM LONG
ON THE BOTTOM
If a screw more than 6 mm long is attached on the bottom of the printer, it may cause internal damage.
PROTECT AGAINST DEW FORMATION
In extremely cold regions, if the unit is moved quickly from
an extremely cold place to a warmer one, dew is likely to
be formed. If dew is formed, printing is not possible.
OPERATING AMBIENT TEMPERATURE RANGE
The operating ambient temperature range is 5°C-40°C
(41°F-104°F), and humidity of 20-80%.
BE CAREFUL AROUND PRINT PAPER EXIT SLOT
Do not insert your hand or any material into the paper
exit slot during printing.
Do not touch the cutter blade inside the paper exit slot.
Otherwise, your finger will be injured.
DO NOT TOUCH THE THERMAL HEAD AND CUTTER
Do not touch the thermal head (located inside the unit)
and the cutter blade.
The thermal head is heated to high temperature.
This may cause injury.
INSTALLATION LOCATIONS
MAINTAIN GOOD VENTILATION
Ventilation slots and holes are provided on sides of this
unit.
Place the unit on a hard and level surface and locate at
least 4" (10cm) from walls to ensure proper ventilation.
AVOID PLACES LIKELY TO BE EXTREMELY HOT
Places exposed to direct sunlight, or near heating
appliances can attain extremely high temperatures,
which may deform the cabinet, or can become a prime
cause of damage.
SUITABLE LOCATIONS
Avoid shaky places or hot-springs areas where hydrogen
sulfide and acidic ions are likely to be generated.
SET THE UNIT ON A FLAT SURFACE
Do not use the unit when inclined ±10° in vertical or horizontal direction, or in an unstable place.
Uneven surfaces may disturb paper feeding or ventilation, or affect the performance of the unit.
AVOID PLACES WITH HIGH HUMIDITY AND DUST
Do not place the unit at locations with high humidity and/
or dust. They can cause extensive damage.
Avoid places where the unit is likely to contact oily fumes
and vapors.
2
FOR LONG OPERATING LIFE
UNSUITABLE MATERIALS FOR THE UNIT
Many plastic components are used in the unit.
Coat flaking and deformation are likely to occur if the
unit is wiped with chemical dusters, benzine, thinner or
any other solvent, if rubber or PVC items are left in contact with the unit for extended duration, or if the unit is
sprayed with insecticide.
CARE OF THE CABINET
Unplug and clean with a soft cloth slightly moistened with
a mild soap and water solution. Allow to dry completely
before operating. Never use petroleum base solutions or
abrasive cleaners.
HEAD ABRASION
The thermal head, like the video head, wears out.
When it is abraded, it becomes hard to print out fine
details of the picture. In such a case, it is necessary to
replace the thermal head. Consult with the sales dealer
for replacing the head.
WHEN A DEFECT IS FOUND
If you detect smoke or other smell from the unit, disconnect immediately the power cord plug from a wall socket
and ask the agent for repair. It may be dangerous to operate the unit under these conditions.
CONNECTION DEVICES
Read thoroughly Operating Precautions of the instruction
booklets for the devices connected with the digital monochrome printer.
Do not disconnect the power cord during printing.
CAUTION ON RELOCATING
When transporting this unit, make sure it is not likely to
be subjected to impacts. They can be a prime cause for
damage. Further, make sure to disconnect the power
cord from the power outlet, and the cables from the connected devices.
UNPLUG THE POWER CORD DURING A LONG
ABSENCE
Turn off the MAIN power switch and unplug the power
cord during a long absence.
THERMAL PAPER
Thermal papers listed in the page of SPECIFICATIONS are available.
When the remaining length of the paper is about 10"
(25cm), a color belt appears at the paper end.
Prepare for replacement of the paper. If the remaining
paper length is less than 10" (25cm), printing becomes
uneven due to the uneven paper core surface.
When the Printed paper is touched by wet hand, the
print may be discolored.
When the paper runs out during printing, the printing
operation stops and "EP" is displayed by the indicator
on the front panel. Install new paper at this time.
Store the printed paper in a place with low humidity
free from a direct sunlight.
If the paper absorbs non-volatile organic solvents (alcohol, ester, katone, etc.) the print may be discolored.
Particularly, if the paper comes in contact with soft
vinyl chloride such as a transparent tape, it quickens
discoloration.
Do not use paper other than the specified types.
Immediately after the paper is replaced, 2-3 images
may be printed with a blank part due to hand's dust or
oil.
Avoid direct sunlight or places near heaters, etc., and
store the paper in a place with 30°C (86°F) or lower
temperature and 35-80% RH.
When the paper is rapidly transferred from a cool
place to a hot place, a vapor or a dew is generated
on the paper surface causing paper jam or degraded
printing quality.
A finger print or dust on the paper surface may degrade the printing quality.
Note:
Mitsubishi brand thermal paper is specially treated with
an anti-static coating against thermal head damage
caused by static-electricity discharge.
The use of non-treated paper may cause premature head
failure in your product.
