this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause
undesired operation.
The FCC Class B limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate
radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may
cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more
of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

FCC rules Part 68
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules. On the back of the product is a label
that contains the FCC registration number and Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for this
equipment. If requested, this information must be provided to the Telephone Company. The
REN is used to determine the quantity of devices which may be connected to the telephone
line. Excessive RENs on the telephone line may result in the device not ringing in response to
an incoming call. In most, but not all, areas the sum of the RENs should not exceed five (5.0).
To be certain of the number of devices that may be connected to the line as determined by
the REN, contact the telephone company to determine the maximum REN for the calling
area. This equipment cannot be used on telephone company-provided coin service.
Connection to party lines is subject to state tariffs.
This equipment uses the following Universal Service Order Code (USOC) jack: RJ-11C. This
equipment is designed to be connected to the telephone network or premises wiring using a
compatible jack which is FCC Part 68 compliant. An FCC compliant telephone cord is
provided with this equipment. See the setup documentation for instructions about connecting
the fax telephone cable. If this equipment causes harm to the telephone network, the
telephone company will notify you in advance that temporary discontinuance of service may
be required. If advance notice is not practical, the telephone company will notify the customer
as soon as possible. Also, you will be advised of your right to file a complaint with the FCC if
you believe it is necessary. The telephone company may make changes to its facilities,

happens, the telephone company will provide advance notice in order for you to make
necessary modification in order to maintain uninterrupted service.
Printing
If trouble is experienced with this equipment, and you cannot correct the problem, please
contact Lexmark International, Inc. for repair and warranty information. If the trouble is
causing harm to the telephone network, the telephone company may request you to
disconnect the equipment from the network until the problem is resolved.

It is recommended that the customer install an AC surge arrestor in the AC outlet to which
this device is connected. This is to avoid damage to the equipment caused by local lightning
strikes and other electrical surges.

Preserving the cartridges
Copying
To ensure the longest life from your print cartridge and optimum performance from your
printer:
• Keep a new print cartridge in its packaging until you are ready to install it.
Printing
• Do not remove a print cartridge from the printer except to replace, clean, or store it in
an air-tight container. The print cartridge does not print correctly if removed from the
printer and left exposed for an extended period of time.
Scanning
Faxing
• If a print cartridge runs out of ink, leave the empty cartridge in the printer until you are
ready to replace it. Printing with only one of the print cartridges in the printer may
cause printer problems.
Lexmark’s printer warranty does not cover repair of failures or damage caused by a refilled
cartridge. Lexmark does not recommend use of refilled cartridges. Refilling cartridges can
affect print quality and cause damage to the printer. For best results, use Lexmark supplies.
