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.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
In the interest of safety, please observe the following precautions:
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.
FEATURES
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.
CONNECTIONS PREPARATION
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.”
TROUBLESHOOTING
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.
OTHERS
WHEN TRANSPORTING THE UNIT
When transporting the unit, remove the ink ribbon and print paper from the unit. See “INSTRUCTIONS FOR
TRANSPORTATION” on page 18.
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 and the metal part on the motor cover (located inside the unit).
They are heated to high temperature and may cause burns or injury when touched.
WHEN PLACING THE PRINT PAPER, REMOVE ONE FLANGE AND KEEP THE PRINT PAPER UPRIGHT ON ITS
SIDE WITH NO FLANGE
When you put the print paper sideways on a table, etc., it may roll and fall. This may cause injury.
CONNECTION CABLES

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
REMOVE THE PAPER STRIP BIN WHEN OPENING OR CLOSING THE DOOR
PRECAUTIONS
When you open or close the door with the paper strip bin installed, the bin may be removed and fall. This may cause injury or
damge.
INSTALLATION LOCATIONS
MAINTAIN GOOD VENTILATION
FEATURES
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.
PLACES WITH HIGH HUMIDITY AND DUST
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.
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
TROUBLESHOOTING
The operating ambient temperature range is 5°C-40°C (41°F-104°F) and the humidity of 30%-80%. When using the unit on the
system rack, be sure to keep this ambient temperature inside the rack.
When the printer is used in a low temperature, it may take some time to start printing.
CONNECTIONS PREPARATION
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.
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.
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.
HEAD ABRASION
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.

CONTENTS
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.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
PRECAUTIONS
OTHER CAUTIONS
Do not pull out nor touch the print paper until printing is completed. It may degrade the print quality or cause an error.
•
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.
•
During printing on 15x23 (6x9”) size paper in the super fine mode, the printer may stop printing temporarily for cooling down.
(The COOLING indicator blinks.) Please wait for the printer to resume printing after its completion of cooling.
Do not touch the print paper.
•
During printing, the printer may stop printing for about 90 seconds for cooling down. (The COOLING indicator blinks.) Please
wait for the printer to resume printing after its completion of cooling.
•
Each time printing on 13x18 (5x7”)-size or 15x23 (6x9”)-size paper is completed, remove the prints. If the prints are not
removed, a paper jam may occur.
