considered. If the measured field strength in the location in which the Model P93DW/P93DE
is used exceeds the applicable RF compliance level above, the Model P93DW/P93DE
should be observed to verify normal operation. If abnormal performance is observed,
additional measures may be necessary, such as reorienting or relocating the Model
P93DW/P93DE.

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 1, 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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
UNSUITABLE 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 ±20° 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.
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

2
Thermal papers listed in the page of SPECIFICATIONS are available.
When the remaining length of the paper is about10"
(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.
2
2
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.
