THIS OPERATION MANUAL IS IMPORTANT
TO YOU.
PLEASE READ IT BEFORE USING YOUR
DIGITAL COLOR PRINTER.
This digital color printer complies with the requirements of the EC
Directive 89/336/EEC, 73/23/EEC and 93/68/EEC.
The electro-magnetic susceptibility has been chosen at a level that
gains proper operation in residential areas, on business and light
industrial premises and on small-scale enterprises, inside as well as
outside of the buildings. All places of operation are characterised by
their connection to the public low voltage power supply system.
INFORMATION
This Class A digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-003.
Cet appareil numérique de la classe A est conforme à la norme NMB-003 du Canada.
WARNING :
TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK HAZARD, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS
APPLIANCE TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
DO NOT OPEN
CAUTION : TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK,
NO USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE
REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital
device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial
environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and,
if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is
likely to cause harmful interference in which case the user will be required to correct the
interference at his or her own expense.
WARNING:
Use the included AC power cord so as not to interfere with radio and television reception.
If you use other cables, it may cause interference with radio and television reception.

NOTE:
TROUBLESHOOTING
The exclamation point within an equilateral
triangle is intended to alert the user to the
presence of important operating and
maintenance (servicing) instructions in the
literature accompanying the appliance.
CONNECTIONS PREPARATION
The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol,
within an equilateral triangle, is intended to
alert the user to the presence of uninsulated
“dangerous voltage” within the product’s
enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude
to constitute the risk of electric shock.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
In the interest of safety, please observe the following precautions:
POWER REQUIREMENT
This Digital Color Printer is designed to operate on 120V AC 50/60Hz in U.S.A. and Canada, 220V-240V AC 50/60Hz in Europe.
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.
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 service 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.
DO NOT PLACE ANYTHING ON THE DIGITAL COLOR PRINTER
Heavy objects placed on the Digital Color Printer 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.
DO NOT PLACE WATER CONTAINERS ON THE UNIT
Do not place flower vases, and other water-holding containers on the device. 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.
“In the interest of safety, avoid handling of liquids near the unit.”
DO NOT REMOVE THE CABINET
Touching internal parts is dangerous, besides, it may lead to malfunction. Contact the sales dealer to carry out internal checks
and adjustments. Before opening the cover for eliminating a jammed paper, etc., be sure to disconnect the power cord plug.
UNPLUG THE POWER CORD DURING A LONG ABSENCE
Turn off the main power switch and unplug the power cord during a long absence.
WHEN TRANSPORTING THE UNIT
When transporting the unit, remove the ink sheet and print paper from the unit.
BE CAREFUL AROUND PRINT PAPER EXIT SLOT
Don’t 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
Do not touch your hand to the thermal head (located inside the unit).
The thermal head is heated to high temperature.
This may cause injury.
BE CAREFUL WITH THE PRINTING UNIT
Do not move the unit while the printing unit is sliding out. This may cause injury.
Be careful not to catch your finger in the printing unit when the printing unit is being retracted into the unit.
CONNECTION CABLES
Use the provided power cord.

INSTALLATION LOCATIONS
PRECAUTIONS
MAINTAIN GOOD VENTILATION
Ventilation slots and holes are provided on the rear and both sides of this unit. Place the unit on a hard and level surface and
locate at least 10cm (4 inches) from walls to insure proper ventilation. When putting the unit on the system rack, take a space
between the unit and the back and sides of the rack.
UNSUITABLE LOCATIONS
Avoid shaky places or hot-springs areas where hydrogen sulfide and acidic ions are likely to be generated.
Do not place the unit at a high humidity and dusty locations. They can cause extensive damage to this unit. Avoid places where
the unit is likely to be exposed to oily fumes and vapors.
PLACES NOT LIKELY TO BE EXTREMELY HOT
CONNECTIONS PREPARATION
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.
FEATURES
PLACES WITH HIGH HUMIDITY AND DUST
PLACES THE UNIT ON A HORIZONTAL LEVEL
The unit is likely to be affected if it is placed in slanted conditions or in an unstable places.
PROTECT AGAINST DEW FORMATION
In extremely cold regions, if the unit is moved quickly from an extremely cold place to 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 the humidity of 20-80%. When using the unit on the
system rack, be sure to keep this ambient temperature inside the rack.
TROUBLESHOOTING
FOR LONG OPERATING LIFE
UNSUITABLE MATERIALS FOR THE DIGITAL COLOR PRINTER
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.
CONNECTING DEVICES
Read thoroughly “Operating Precautions” of the instruction booklets for the devices connected with the Digital Color Printer. The
power cord must be disconnected after printing is over.
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.
3
OTHERS
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.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
OTHER CAUTIONS
Dust or other foreign matter adhering to the print paper or the ink cassette, or deformation resulting from exposure to extremely
low or high temperatures could cause loss of color, uneven color or lines, or wrinkles in the print images.
NOTE:
YOUR UNDERSTANDING IS REQUESTED FOR THE LOSS OF IMAGES IN MEMORY DUE TO THE SUDDEN
OCCURRENCE OF A MALFUNCTION.
As for paper sheet set, refer to “Print paper and ink sheet”.
