OPERATION GUIDE
Maintenance
Toner Container Replacement
The toner container in the printer should be replaced as soon as the
message display shows Toner low or soon after. If you continue to use
the printer, eventually the toner supply will be exhausted at which point the
printer will stop printing and the Replace toner Clean printer
message will be shown instructing you to install a new toner kit.
Frequency of toner container replacement
Assuming an average toner coverage of 5 % and EcoPrint mode turned
off, the toner container will need replacing approximately once every
40,000 pages.
Starter Toner Container
The toner container packed with the new printer is a starter toner container.
The starter toner container lasts an average of 20,000 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:
•
Toner Container
•
Cleaning cloth
•
Plastic waste bags for old toner container and old waste toner box
•
Waste toner box
NOTE: Be sure to clean the inside of the printer when replacing the toner

Understanding Messages Requesting Toner Container Replacement
The printer displays messages at two stages of toner usage. This message
is automatically alternated with the other printer message (such as
Ready):
OPERATION GUIDE
•
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
automaticallychange to Ready. To restart printing, you must press
[GO] and make the printer ready.

Operation Guide
When the jammed paper has been removed, open and close the printer’s
front cover. Then the printer automatically warms up, goes on-line, and
continues printing. Depending on the point at which the jam occurred, the
printer may or may not print the jammed page.
If paper jams occur frequently, try using a different type of paper, replace
with paper from another ream, turn the stack of paper over, or turn the
paper the other way around. Also, look for tiny pieces of paper that may
have been torn off and overlooked when the jammed paper was removed.
If you cannot solve the problem by changing the paper, there may be a
problem with the printer. Contact your service representative.
NOTE: When removing jammed paper, pull it out carefully so as not to
tear it. Torn pieces of paper are difficult to remove and may be hand to
find. Be sure to remove them all.
Online help messages
With the online help message function, this printer can display the
procedure to correct a paper jam on the message display. When a paper
jam message is displayed, press the
