Dell Ink Management System
Each time you print a job, a printing progress screen appears, which shows the progress of the
print job as well as the amount of ink remaining and the approximate number of pages
remaining in the cartridge. The page counter is hidden during the first 50 pages of cartridge use,
until printing habits are learned and a more accurate count can be given. The number of pages
remaining changes as a result of the type of print jobs the printer completes.
When your ink cartridge levels are low, a Low Ink Warning appears on your screen when you try
to print. This warning is displayed every time you print until you install a new ink cartridge. For
more information on replacing ink cartridges, see "Replacing Ink Cartridges" on page 49.
When one or both of your ink cartridges are empty, the Reserve Tank window appears on your
screen when you try to print. If you continue printing, the print job may not print as you expect.

this Agreement. If you do not wish to be bound by this Agreement, you must notify Dell immediately and return your
purchase pursuant to Dell's Total Satisfaction Return Policy.

Other Documents.
This Agreement may NOT be altered, supplemented, or amended by the use of any other document(s) unless
otherwise agreed to in a written agreement signed by both you and Dell. If you do not receive an invoice or

Payment Terms; Orders; Quotes; Interest.
Payment terms are within Dell's sole discretion, and, unless otherwise agreed to by Dell, payment must be made at
the time of purchase. Payment for Product may be made by credit card, wire transfer, or some other prearranged
payment method. Dell may invoice parts of an order separately. Your order is subject to cancellation by Dell, at Dell's
sole discretion. Unless you and Dell have agreed to a different discount, Dell's standard pricing policy for
Dell™-branded systems, which include both hardware and services in one discounted price, allocates the discount off
list price applicable to the service portion of the system to be equal to the overall calculated percentage discount off
list price on the entire system. Dell is not responsible for pricing, typographical, or other errors, in any offer by Dell
and reserves the right to cancel any orders resulting from such errors.
3
Shipping Charges; Taxes; Title; Risk of Loss.
Shipping and handling are additional unless otherwise expressly indicated at the time of sale. Loss or damage that
occurs during shipping by a carrier selected by Dell is Dell's responsibility. Loss or damage that occurs during
shipping by a carrier selected by you is your responsibility. You must notify Dell within 30 days of the date of your
invoice or acknowledgement if you believe any part of your purchase is missing, wrong or damaged. Unless you
provide Dell with a valid and correct tax exemption certificate applicable to your purchase of Product and the
Product ship-to location, you are responsible for sales and other taxes associated with the order. Shipping dates are
estimates only. Title to software will remain with the applicable licensor(s).

INTENTIONAL TORT AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN CUSTOMER AND DELL, its agents,
employees, principals, successors, assigns, affiliates (collectively for purposes of this paragraph, "Dell") arising from or
relating to this Agreement, its interpretation, or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships which
result from this Agreement (including, to the full extent permitted by applicable law, relationships with third parties
who are not signatories to this Agreement), Dell's advertising, or any related purchase SHALL BE RESOLVED
EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION ADMINISTERED BY THE NATIONAL
ARBITRATION FORUM (NAF) under its Code of Procedure then in effect (available via the Internet at

, or via telephone at 1-800-474-2371). The arbitration will be limited solely to the
dispute or controversy between customer and Dell. NEITHER CUSTOMER NOR DELL SHALL BE ENTITLED

U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA). Any award of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding on each of the parties, and may be
entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Dell will be responsible for paying any arbitration filing
fees and fees required to obtain a hearing to the extent such fees exceed the amount of the filing fee for initiating a
claim in the court of general jurisdiction in the state in which you reside. Each party shall pay for its own costs and
attorneys' fees, if any. However, if any party prevails on a statutory claim that affords the prevailing party attorneys'
fees, or if there is a written agreement providing for fees, the Arbitrator may award reasonable fees to the prevailing
party, under the standards for fee shifting provided by law. Information may be obtained and claims may be filed with
the NAF at P.O. Box 50191, Minneapolis, MN 55405. (REV 4/04)

What will Dell do?
During the 90 days of the 90-day limited warranty and the first year of all other limited warranties: During the 90 days
of the 90-day limited warranty and the first year of all other limited warranties, we will repair any Dell-branded hardware
products returned to us that prove to be defective in materials or workmanship. If we are not able to repair the product,
we will replace it with a comparable product that is new or refurbished.
When you contact us, we will issue a Return Material Authorization Number for you to include with your return. You
must return the products to us in their original or equivalent packaging, prepay shipping charges, and insure the
shipment or accept the risk if the product is lost or damaged in shipment. We will return the repaired or replacement
products to you. We will pay to ship the repaired or replaced products to you if you use an address in the United States
(excluding Puerto Rico and U.S. possessions and territories). Otherwise, we will ship the product to you freight collect.
If we determine that the issue is not covered under this warranty, we will notify you and inform you of service
alternatives that are available to you on a fee basis.
NOTE: Before you ship the product(s) to us, make sure to back up the data on the hard drive(s) and any other storage
device(s) in the product(s). Remove any confidential, proprietary, or personal information and removable media such as
floppy disks, CDs, or PC Cards. We are not responsible for any of your confidential, proprietary, or personal information; lost
or corrupted data; or damaged or lost removable media.
During the remaining years: For the remaining period of the limited warranty, we will replace any defective part with
new or refurbished parts, if we agree that it needs to be replaced. When you contact us, we will require a valid credit card
number at the time you request a replacement part, but we will not charge you for the replacement part as long as you
return the original part to us within 30 days after we ship the replacement part to you. If we do not receive the original
part within 30 days, we will charge to your credit card the then-current standard price for that part.
We will pay to ship the part to you if you use an address in the United States (excluding Puerto Rico and U.S.
possessions and territories). Otherwise, we will ship the part freight collect. We will also include a prepaid shipping
container with each replacement part for your use in returning the replaced part to us.
NOTE: Before you replace parts, make sure to back up the data on the hard drive(s) and any other storage device(s) in the
product(s). We are not responsible for lost or corrupted data.
What if I purchased a service contract?
If your service contract is with Dell, service will be provided to you under the terms of the service agreement. Please refer
to that contract for details on how to obtain service.
If you purchased through us a service contract with one of our third-party service providers, please refer to that contract
for details on how to obtain service.
How will you fix my product?
We use new and refurbished parts made by various manufacturers in performing warranty repairs and in building
replacement parts and systems. Refurbished parts and systems are parts or systems that have been returned to Dell,
some of which were never used by a customer. All parts and systems are inspected and tested for quality. Replacement
parts and systems are covered for the remaining period of the limited warranty for the product you bought. Dell owns all
parts removed from repaired products.
May I transfer the limited warranty?
Limited warranties on systems may be transferred if the current owner transfers ownership of the system and records the
transfer with us. The limited warranty on Dell-branded memory may not be transferred. You may record your transfer by
going to Dell's website:

Export Regulations
Customer acknowledges that these Products, which may include technology and software, are subject to the customs
and export control laws and regulations of the United States (“U.S.”) and may also be subject to the customs and export
laws and regulations of the country in which the Products are manufactured and/or received. Customer agrees to abide
by those laws and regulations. Further, under U.S. law, the Products may not be sold, leased or otherwise transferred to
restricted end-users or to restricted countries. In addition, the Products may not be sold, leased or otherwise transferred
to, or utilized by an end-user engaged in activities related to weapons of mass destruction, including without limitation,
activities related to the design, development, production or use of nuclear weapons, materials, or facilities, missiles or
the support of missile projects, and chemical or biological weapons.
Dell™ Software License Agreement
This is a legal agreement between you, the user, and Dell Products, L.P ("Dell"). This agreement covers all software that
is distributed with the Dell product, for which there is no separate license agreement between you and the manufacturer
or owner of the software (collectively the "Software"). This agreement is not for the sale of Software or any other
intellectual property. All title and intellectual property rights in and to Software is owned by the manufacturer or owner
of the Software. All rights not expressly granted under this agreement are reserved by the manufacturer or owner of the
Software. By opening or breaking the seal on the Software packet(s), installing or downloading the Software, or using the
Software that has been preloaded or is embedded in your product, you agree to be bound by the terms of this agreement.
If you do not agree to these terms, promptly return all Software items (disks, written materials, and packaging) and
delete any preloaded or embedded Software.
You may use one copy of the Software on only one product at a time. If you have multiple licenses for the Software, you
may use as many copies at any time as you have licenses. "Use" means loading the Software in temporary memory or
permanent storage on the product. Installation on a network server solely for distribution to other products is not "use"
if (but only if) you have a separate license for each product to which the Software is distributed. You must ensure that
the number of persons using the Software installed on a network server does not exceed the number of licenses that you
have. If the number of users of Software installed on a network server will exceed the number of licenses, you must
purchase additional licenses until the number of licenses equals the number of users before allowing additional users to
use the Software. If you are a commercial customer of Dell or a Dell affiliate, you hereby grant Dell, or an agent selected
by Dell, the right to perform an audit of your use of the Software during normal business hours, you agree to cooperate
with Dell in such audit, and you agree to provide Dell with all records reasonably related to your use of the Software. The
audit will be limited to verification of your compliance with the terms of this agreement.
The Software is protected by United States copyright laws and international treaties. You may make one copy of the
Software solely for backup or archival purposes or transfer it to a single hard disk provided you keep the original solely for
backup or archival purposes. You may not rent or lease the Software or copy the written materials accompanying the
Software, but you may transfer the Software and all accompanying materials on a permanent basis as part of a sale or
transfer of the Dell product if you retain no copies and the recipient agrees to the terms hereof. Any transfer must
include the most recent update and all prior versions. You may not reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the
Software. If the package accompanying your product contains compact discs, 3.5", and/or 5.25" disks, you may use only
the disks appropriate for your product. You may not use the disks on another computer or network, or loan, rent, lease, or
transfer them to another user except as permitted by this agreement.
Limited Warranty
Dell warrants that the Software disks will be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for
ninety (90) days from the date you receive them. This warranty is limited to you and is not transferable. Any implied
warranties are limited to ninety (90) days from the date you receive the Software. Some jurisdictions do not allow limits
on the duration of an implied warranty, so this limitation may not apply to you. The entire liability of Dell and its
Appendix

suppliers, and your exclusive remedy, shall be (a) return of the price paid for the Software or (b) replacement of any disk

IN NO EVENT SHALL DELL OR ITS SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER
(INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS
INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, OR OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS) ARISING OUT OF
USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
DAMAGES. Because some jurisdictions do not allow an exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or
incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you.

Regulatory Notices
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) is any signal or emission, radiated in free space or conducted along power or signal
leads, that endangers the functioning of a radio navigation or other safety service or seriously degrades, obstructs, or
repeatedly interrupts a licensed radio communications service. Radio communications services include but are not
limited to AM/FM commercial broadcast, television, cellular services, radar, air-traffic control, pager, and Personal
Communication Services (PCS). These licensed services, along with unintentional radiators such as digital devices,
including computers, contribute to the electromagnetic environment.

Appendix
Electromagnetic Compatibility is the ability of items of electronic equipment to function properly together in the
electronic environment. While this product has been designed and determined to be compliant with regulatory agency
limits for EMI, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause interference with radio communications services, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on,
you are encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
•
Reorient the receiving antenna.
•
Relocate the product with respect to the receiver.
•
Move the product away from the receiver.
•
Plug the product into a different outlet so that the product and the receiver are on different branch circuits.
If necessary, consult a Dell Technical Support representative or an experienced radio/television technician for additional
suggestions.
Dell™ products are designed, tested, and classified for their intended electromagnetic environment. These
electromagnetic environment classifications generally refer to the following harmonized definitions:
•
Class A is typically for business or industrial environments.
•
Class B is typically for residential environments.
Information Technology Equipment (ITE), including devices, expansion cards, printers, input/output (I/O) devices,
monitors, and so on, that are integrated into or connected to the product should match the electromagnetic
environment classification of the product.
A Notice About Shielded Signal Cables: Use only shielded cables for connecting devices to any Dell device to reduce
the possibility of interference with radio communications services. Using shielded cables ensures that you maintain
the appropriate Electromagnetic Compatibility classification for the intended environment. For parallel printers, a
cable is available from Dell. If you prefer, you can order a cable from Dell on the World Wide Web at
www.dell.com/supplies.
Most Dell products are classified for Class B environments. However, the inclusion of certain options may change the
rating of some configurations to Class A. To determine the electromagnetic classification for your computer or device,
see the following sections specific for each regulatory agency. Each section provides country-specific Electromagnetic
Compatibility/EMI, telecommunications, wireless, or product safety information.
FCC Notices (U.S. Only)
