where you acquired the Programs. You obtain no rights other than those
granted you under this license.
The term “Programs” means the original and all whole or partial copies of
it, including modified copies or portions merged into other programs. IBM
retains title to the Programs. IBM owns, or has licensed from the owner,
copyrights in the Programs.
1. License
Under this license, you may use the Programs only with the device on
which they are installed and transfer possession of the Programs and
the device to another party.
If you transfer the Programs, you must transfer a copy of this license and
any other documentation to the other party. Your license is then
terminated. The other party agrees to these terms and conditions by its
first use of the Program.
You may not:
1. use, copy, modify, merge, or transfer copies of the Program except as
provided in this license;
2. reverse assemble or reverse compile the Program; or
3. sublicense, rent, lease, or assign the Program.

damages or other economic consequential damages, even if IBM, or its
authorized supplier, has been advised of the possibility of such
damages. IBM will not be liable for any damages claimed by you based
on any third party claim. This limitation of remedies also applies to any
developer of Programs supplied to IBM. IBM's and the developer's
limitations of remedies are not cumulative. Such developer is an
intended beneficiary of this Section. Some jurisdictions do not allow
these limitations or exclusions, so they may not apply to you.

•
•
•
Avoid locations near a window or with exposure to direct sunlight.
Avoid locations with vibrations.
Avoid locations with drastic temperature fluctuations.
Avoid locations with direct exposure to hot or cold air.
Avoid poorly ventilated locations.
During printing, some ozone is released, but the amount does not cause
any ill effect to one's health. If, however, the printer is used over a long
period of time in a poorly ventilated room or when printing an extremely
large number of copies, the smell may become unpleasant. To maintain
the appropriate environment for print work, it is suggested that the room
be properly ventilated.
xvi
Power Supply/Grounding the Machine
Warning
Do not use a power supply with a voltage other than that
specified. Avoid multiple connections in the same outlet. These
types of situations present a danger of fire or electrical shock.
Plug the power cord securely into the outlet. If metallic objects
come in contact with the prongs on the plug, it may cause a fire or
electric shock.
Always connect the machine to an outlet with a ground
connection to avoid the danger of fire or electrical shock in case
of an electric short. If an earth connection is not possible, contact
your service representative.
Other precautions
Connect the power plug to the closest outlet possible to the machine.
The power supply cord is used as the main disconnect device. Ensure
that the socket/outlet is located/installed near the equipment and is
easily accessible.
Handling of plastic bags
Warning
Keep the plastic bags that are used with the machine away from
children. The plastic may cling to their nose and mouth causing
suffocation.
xvii
Precautions for Use
Cautions when using the machine
Warning
Do not place metallic objects or containers with water (flower
vases, flower pots, cups, etc.) on or near the machine. This
situation presents a danger of fire or electrical shock should they
fall inside.
Do not remove any of the covers from the machine as there is a
danger of electrical shock from high voltage parts inside the
machine.
Do not damage, break or attempt to repair the power cord. Do not
place heavy objects on the cord, pull it, bend it unnecessarily or
cause any other type of damage. These types of situations
present a danger of fire or electrical shock.
Never attempt to repair or disassemble the machine or its parts as
there is a danger of fire, electrical shock or damage to the laser. If
the laser beam escapes, there is a danger of it causing blindness.
If the machine becomes excessively hot, smoke appears from the
machine, there is an odd smell, or any other abnormal situation
occurs, there is a danger of fire or electrical shock. Turn the main
power switch off ({) immediately, be absolutely certain to remove the
power plug from the outlet and then contact your service representative.
If anything harmful (paper clips, water, other fluids, etc.) falls into
the machine, turn the main power switch off ({) immediately.
Next, be absolutely certain to remove the power plug from the
outlet to avoid the danger of fire or electrical shock. Then contact your
service representative.
Do not remove or connect the power plug with wet hands, as
there is a danger of electrical shock.
Always contact your service representative for maintenance or
repair of internal parts.
Caution
Do not pull the power cord when removing it from the outlet. If the
power cord is pulled, the wires may become broken and there is a
danger of fire or electrical shock. (Always grasp the power plug
when removing the power cord from the outlet.)
Always remove the power plug from the outlet when moving the
machine. If the power cord is damaged, there is a danger of fire or
electrical shock.
If the machine will not be used for a short period of time
(overnight, etc.), turn the power switch off (O). If it will not be used
for an extended period of time (vacations, etc.), remove the power
plug from the outlet for safety purposes during the time the machine is
not in use.
Always hold the designated parts only when lifting or moving the
machine.
For safety purposes, always remove the power plug from the
outlet when performing cleaning operations.
xviii
If dust accumulates within the machine, there is a danger of fire or
other trouble. It is therefore recommended that you consult with
your service representative in regard to cleaning of internal parts.
This is particularly effective if accomplished prior to seasons of
high humidity. Consult with your service representative in regard
to the cost of cleaning the internal parts of the machine.
Other precautions
Do not place heavy objects on the machine or cause other damage to
the machine.
Do not open the upper front cover, turn off the main power switch, or pull
out the power plug during printing.
When lifting or moving the machine, contact your service representative.
Do not touch electrical parts, such as connectors or printed circuit
boards. They could be damaged by static electricity.
Do not attempt to perform any operations not explained in this
handbook.
Use shielded interface cables.
Caution
Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than
those specified herein may result in hazardous radiation exposure.
Cautions when Handling Consumables
Caution
Do not attempt to incinerate the Toner Container. Dangerous
sparks may cause burns.
Keep the Toner Container out of the reach of children.
If toner happens to spill from the Toner Container, avoid inhalation
and ingestion, as well as contact with your eyes and skin.
•
•
•
•
If you do happen to inhale toner, move to a place with fresh
air and gargle thoroughly with a large amount of water. If coughing
develops, contact a physician.
If you do happen to ingest toner, rinse your mouth out with water and
drink 1 or 2 cups of water to dilute the contents of your stomach. If
necessary, contact a physician.
If you do happen to get toner in your eyes, flush them thoroughly
with water. If there is any remaining tenderness, contact a physician.
If toner does happen to get on your skin, wash with soap and water.
Do not attempt to force open or destroy the Toner Container.
Other precautions
After use, always dispose of the Toner Container in accordance with

General Information
This chapter describes basic maintenance tasks you can perform for the
printer. You can replace the following component according to the
printer's display:
•
•
Toner Kits
Waste Toner Box
Also, the internal parts need periodic cleaning.
Note Information Collection on Memory Chips - The memory chip
attached to the toner container is designed to improve
convenience for the end user; to support the recycling operation of
empty toner containers; and to gather information to support new
product planning and development. The information gathered is
anonymous - it cannot be associated to any specific individual and
the data is intended to be used anonymously.
Toner Container Replacement
Frequency of toner container replacement
The life of the toner containers depends on the amount of toner required
to accomplish your printing jobs. Assuming paper of A4 size, an average
toner coverage of approximately 5% and EcoPrint mode turned off, the
toner container will need replacing approximately once every 15,000
pages.
You can print a status page to check how much toner remains in the
toner container. The Toner Gauge in the consumables status section on
the status page shows a progress bar, which roughly represents how
much toner is left in the toner container.
Starter Toner Container
The toner container packed with the new printer is a starter toner
container. The starter toner container lasts an average of 7,500 pages.
Toner Kits
For best results, we recommend that you only use genuine Kyocera
Parts and Supplies.
A new toner kit contains the following items:
•
•

The printer displays messages at two stages of toner usage. This
message is automatically alternated with the other printer message
(such as Ready):

Maintenance
•
•
When the printer becomes low on toner, the printer displays the
message Toner low as the first caution. Note the replacement is
not always necessary at this stage.
If you ignore the above message and continue printing, the printer
displays the message Replace toner - just before the toner is
used up. The toner container must be replaced immediately. After
the cleaning is finished, however, the message does not
automatically change to Ready. To restart printing, you must press
[GO] and make the printer ready.
In either case, replace the toner container, refer to Replacing the Toner
Container on page 4-3.
Replacing the Toner Container
This section explains how to replace the toner container. When replacing
the toner container, always replace the waste toner box at the same
time. If this box is full, the printer may be damaged or contaminated by
the waste toner that may spill over the box.
CAUTION Do not attempt to incinerate the Toner
Container. Dangerous sparks may cause burns.
IMPORTANT During toner container replacement, temporarily move
storage media and computer supplies (such as floppy disks) away
from the toner container. This is to avoid damaging media by the
magnetism of toner.
IMPORTANT Kyocera Mita Corporation is not liable against any
damages or problems arising from the use of toner containers other than
those designated as original Kyocera toner containers. For optimum
performance, it is also recommended to use only the Kyocera toner
containers which are specifically intended for use in your country or
region. If the toner container for another destinations is installed, the
printer will stop printing.
Note You do not have to turn printer power off before starting
the replacement. Any data that may be processing in the printer
will be deleted if you turn the printer power off.

General Considerations for Clearing Jams
Bear in mind the following considerations when attempting paper jam
removal:
CAUTION When pulling the paper, pull it gently so as not
to tear it. Torn pieces of paper are difficult to remove and
may be easily overlooked, deterring the paper jam recovery.
•
•
If paper jams occur frequently, try using a different type of paper,
replace the paper with paper from another ream, or flip the paper
stack over. The printer may have problems if paper jams recur after
the paper is replaced.
Whether or not the jammed pages are reproduced normally after
printing is resumed, depends on the location of the paper jam.
Utilizing Online Help Messages
Online help messages are available in the printer’s message display to
provide simple instructions for clearing jams. Press ( ) when the paper
jam message has appeared. Then a help message will appear to
facilitate jam clearing in the location.
