PROTECTIVE MEASURES
PRECAUTIONS
This product is designed for operation on 220-240V AC 50/60Hz. Never connect to any outlet or power supply having a different
voltage or frequency.
FEATURES
IF ABNORMALITIES ARISE, ....
If the printer emits smoke or abnormal sounds, immediately unplug the power cord from the printer or power outlet. Continued
use may be dangerous. Contact your dealer about having the printer checked and serviced.
NEVER INSERT ANY OBJECT INTO THE UNIT
DO NOT SET HEAVY OBJECTS ON TOP OF THE UNIT
Heavy objects can damage the unit and/or cause malfunction.
AVOID DAMAGING THE POWER CORD
Do not set anything heavy on the power cord nor allow it to become pinched, or cut. If the power cord becomes damaged,
replace it immediately to avoid shock hazard or electrical fire.
When the power cord is replaced, use the same type as originally supplied; it is designed to reduce interference to radio & TV
reception.
When unplugging the power cord, hold the plug, and remove it carefully.
KEEP THE UNIT DRY - DO NOT PLACE WATER OR OTHER LIQUID CONTAINERS, FLOWER VASES/POTS ON
TOP OF THE UNIT
DO NOT REMOVE THE CABINET. THERE ARE NO USER SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE AND YOU WILL EXPOSE
YOURSELF TO HAZARDOUS VOLTAGES AND/OR YOU MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE UNIT.
OTHERS
Touching internal parts is dangerous, and may cause a malfunction. Contact your dealer to carry out internal checks and
adjustments. Disconnect the power cord before opening the cover to clear a paper jam, etc.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Liquids that get into the unit can cause serious damage to the unit and potential shock or fire danger. If liquid is spilled into or
seeps into the unit, unplug the Power Cord immediately and seek service as soon as possible to avoid additional or possible
damage due to corrosion.
“In the interest of safety, avoid handling of liquids near the unit.”
CONNECTIONS PREPARATION
Nothing other than supplies for this printer should ever be inserted into the printer. Other items can cause a safety hazard and
extensive damage to the mechanism and electronics.
UNPLUG THE POWER CORD DURING A LONG ABSENCE OR DURING AN ELECTRICAL STORM
Turn off the Main Power switch and unplug the power cord during a long absence or during an electrical storm.
WHEN TRANSPORTING THE UNIT
When transporting the unit, remove the ink cassette and paper. And make sure to attach the shipping inserts on the slot or the
rollers may be deformed.
DO NOT INSERT YOUR FINGERS OR ANY OBJECT INTO THE PAPER OUTLET DURING PRINTING
Inside the paper outlet is a roller for taking out the print paper. If you insert your fingers, you may get injured.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
INSTALLATION LOCATIONS
PRECAUTIONS
MAINTAIN GOOD VENTILATION
Ventilation slots and holes are provided on the rear of this unit. Place the unit on a hard and level surface and locate at least 17
cm (6.7 inches) (top) and 5 cm (2 inches) (sides), from walls to insure proper ventilation. When installing the unit in a system
rack, leave space between the unit and the back of the rack.
UNSUITABLE LOCATIONS
FEATURES
Avoid installing the printer in unstable locations with high vibration or in hot-springs areas where hydrogen sulfide and acidic
ions are likely to be generated.
PLACES WITH HIGH HUMIDITY AND DUST
Do not place the unit in locations with high humidity and dust. They can cause extensive damage. Avoid places where unit is
likely to be exposed to oily fumes and vapours.
PLACES 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 cause other damage.
PLACE THE UNIT ON A HORIZONTAL SURFACE
The unit is likely to be affected if it is operated when tilted, inclined or in unstable places.
PROTECT AGAINST DEW FORMATION
When the unit is moved from a cold area into a warm area, moisture can condense inside the unit and prevent operation. Allow
the temperature to stabilize before use.
OPERATING AMBIENT TEMPERATURE RANGE
The operating temperature range is 5°C to 35°C (41°F - 95°F) and humidity of 30 - 80% RH. When using the unit in a system
rack, make sure that the temperature inside the rack does not exceed this range.
TROUBLESHOOTING
FOR LONG OPERATING LIFE
UNSUITABLE MATERIALS FOR THE PRINTER
Paint coat flaking and plastic 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 a extended period, or if the unit is sprayed with
insecticide.
OTHERS
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 based solutions or abrasive cleaners.
HEAD ABRASION
The thermal print head, like a video head, wears out. When it is worn, it becomes hard to print out fine details of the picture.
Then it is necessary to replace the thermal head. Consult your dealer about having the head replaced.
CONNECTING DEVICES
Read thoroughly the Safety Notices, Cautions and “Operating Precautions” of the instruction booklets for the other devices
connected with the unit.
CAUTION ON RELOCATING
When transporting the unit, make sure it is not likely to be subjected to impacts. This can be a primary cause for damage.
Before moving the unit, make sure to disconnect the power cord from the power outlet, and the cables from the connected
devices. Also make sure to remove the paper tray.

Fingerprints or dust on the paper’s surface may degrade print quality and cause paper jams.
When print paper is rapidly transferred from a cool place to a hot place, vapour 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 use.
When print paper or ink sheet runs out during printing, the printing operation stops and the
MEDIA indicator blinks. Set new ink sheet or print paper.
Do not use wet or damaged paper. It may cause malfunction.
Avoid touching or pulling the ink sheet with fingers. It may degrade the print quality.
When the ink sheet is exhausted, replace it with a new one. Used ink sheet is not reusable.
Do not open the print paper and ink sheet until you are ready to use them.
The paper sheet set is a combination of ink sheet and print paper. Use the combination
provided in the box. If the combination is changed, malfunction may occur.

TROUBLESHOOTING
When the printed paper is touched with a wet hand, the print may be discoloured.
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.).
Do not put a print back into the paper tray. Doing so can cause jams and loss of completed
prints.
Store prints in a cool, dry environment free of chemical contamination. Avoid exposure to
high intensity light sources, particularly fluorescent light and sunlight, which are high in
ultraviolet radiation.
2 STORAGE OF PAPER SHEET SET
Leaving the print paper in contact with PVC-based materials causes the print paper to
discolour or become stained.
•
Never store print paper close to heaters or in hot, humid or dusty places.
Keep print paper in a place where;
Temperature : 5°C - 30°C (41°F - 86°F)
Humidity
: 20% - 60%RH
