MAKING COPIES
This chapter describes basic copying functions and some other copying functions using the
bypass tray.
NORMAL COPYING
2
Making copies
This copier has two document input stations -reversing single pass feeder (RSPF) for automatic
document feeding and an original table for manual handling of documents. The RSPF is designed
to hold up to 30 originals measuring from A5 to B4 (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" to 10" x 14") and weighing
from 52 to 90 g/m2 (14 to 23 lbs.).
When copying from the RSPF, two-side originals can be copied automatically without having to
manually turn them over.
Automatic two-sided copying can also be performed with this copier. When copying from onesided originals to two-sided copies, copying orientation can be selected between Turn on Long
Edge and Turn on Short Edge.
A A
A
A
Turn on Long Edge
A
A
A
A
Turn on Short Edge
When making two-sided copies from the original table, the copy paper size
must be A4 (8-1/2" x 11"). When making two-sided copies from the RSPF,
letter, legal, and invoice sizes can be used. Non-standard size paper cannot
be used.
● When making two-sided copies from the RSPF, a multiple number of copies
cannot be set.
● When making two-sided copies, the bypass tray cannot be used.
● When using two-sided invoice size originals from the RSPF, be sure to place
them in the landscape orientation. Otherwise, an original misfeed will occur.
●
Ensure that paper of the desired size is set in the paper tray. See page 10, LOADING
COPY PAPER. When copying onto paper larger than A4 (8-1/2" x 11") size, pull out
the paper output tray extension. If you use another tray, use the tray select (
) key
to select the desired tray.
12
NORMAL COPYING
Turn the power switch on.
The ready (
) indicator will light up.
The copier will enter a power save mode once the set time has elapsed
without any copier operation after the last copy of a run is made or power is
turned on.
The settings of the power save modes can be modified. See page 21, USER
PROGRAMS.
● The copier will return to the initial settings a preset amount of time after the
last copy is made. The preset amount of time (auto clear time) can be changed.
See page 21, USER PROGRAMS.
●

Making copies
Place the original(s) face up in the document feeder tray or face down on the original
table.
A. When using the RSPF:
(1) Make sure that no original is left on the original table.
(2) Adjust the original guides to the size of originals.
(3) Set the originals face up in the document feeder tray.
Before feeding originals in the document feeder tray, be sure to remove any
staples or paper clips from them.
● Before placing curled or wavy originals into the document feeding tray, be
sure to flatten them. If not, original misfeeds may result.
● The RSPF ( ) indicator on the operation panel will light up. If this indicator
does not light up, the originals are not properly set or the RSPF is not properly
closed.
● Badly damaged originals may misfeed in the RSPF. It is recommended that
such originals be copied from the original table.
● Special originals such as transparency film should not be fed through the
RSPF, but should be placed directly on the original table.
● Image loss (max. 4 mm (5/32")) can occur at the leading and trailing edges of
the copies. Also image loss (max. 4.5 mm (11/64") in total) can occur along
the other edges of the copies. It can be 6 mm (15/64") (max.) at the trailing
edge of the second copy of two-sided copying.

Hazardous Identification (Emergency Overview)
Toner is a fine, black powder possessing no immediate hazard. There are no anticipated carcinogenic
effects from exposure based on animal tests performed using toner. When used as intended according
to instructions, studies do not indicate any symptoms of fibrosis will occur.
Section 5.
Health Hazard Data
Route(s) of Entry:
Inhalation?
Skin?
Ingestion?
Yes
No
Possible but very unusual.
Health Hazards: Acute oral toxicity ------------- LDL0 of this toner is over 2,000mg/kg.
Mutagenicity -------------------- The result of Ames test is negative.
Carcinogenicity: In 1996 the IARC reevaluated carbon black as a Group 2B carcinogen (possible
human carcinogen). This classification is given to chemicals for which there is
inadequate human evidence, but sufficient animal evidence on which to base an
opinion of carcinogenicity. The classification is based upon the development of lung
tumors in rats receiving chronic inhalation exposures to free carbon black at levels
that induce particle overload of the lung. Studies performed in animal models other
than rats did not show any association between carbon black and lung tumors.
Moreover, a two-year cancer bioassay using a typical toner preparation containing
carbon black demonstrated no association between toner exposure and tumor
development in rats.
Chronic Effect: In a study in rats of chronic inhalation exposure to a typical toner, a mild to moderate
degree of lung fibrosis was observed in 92% of the rats in the high concentration
(16mg/m3) exposure group, and a minimal to mild degree of fibrosis was noted in
22% of the animals in the middle (4mg/m3) exposure group, but no pulmonary change
was reported in the lowest (1mg/m3) exposure group, the most relevant level to
potential human exposures.
Signs and Symptoms of Exposure: Minimal irritation to respiratory tract may occur as with exposure
to any non-toxic dust.
Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure: None
Emergency and First Aid Procedures:
Inhalation; Remove to fresh air. If effects occur, consult medical personnel.
Eye;
In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with water for 15 minutes.

Precautions for Safe Handling and Use
Personal Protection Information (Respiratory, Eye Protection and Protective Glove):
Use of a dust mask is recommended when handling a large quantity of toner or
during long term exposure, as with any non-toxic dust.
Engineering Control / Ventilation:
Not required.
Work / Hygienic Practice:
Inhalation should be minimized as with any non-toxic
dust.
Steps to be taken in case of Spill or Leak: Sweep up or clean up with vacuum cleaner.
Waste Disposal Method:
Waste material may be dumped or incinerated under
conditions which meet all federal, state and local
environmental regulations.
