Put the tray back when finishing printing.
USAGE AND KEEPING OF PAPER SHEET SET
2 BEFORE PRINTING
•
Fingerprints or dust on the paper’s surface may degrade print quality and cause paper jams.
Immediately after the paper is replaced, 2 images may be printed with a blank part due to
hand’s dust or oil. Refer to Pages 11-12.
•
When print paper is rapidly transferred from a cool place to a hot place, vapor or dew will be
generated on the paper’s surface causing paper jams or degraded print quality. Leave the
print paper in the room to stabilize its temperature before using it.
•
When print paper and ink sheet run out during printing, the printing operation stops and the
error messages such as “CHANGE PAPER” and “CHANGE INK” is displayed on the monitor.
Set new ink sheet or print paper. Refer to Page 34.
2 AFTER PRINTING
•
When the printed paper is touched by a wet hand, the print may be discolored.
•
Fading may occur if the print-face is exposed to organic chemical agents which may affect
print paper (e.g. alcohol, ester, ketone based).
•
Fading will be accelerated upon contact with PVC-based materials (e.g. adhesive tapes,
rubber erasers, etc.).
2 STORAGE
•
•
Avoid storing prints in direct sunlight or places with high humidity.
Leaving the print paper in contact with PVC-based materials causes color of print paper to
•
come off and to be stained.
Never store print paper in places that are close to heater, hot, humid or dusty.
