COPIER INSTALLATION
Improper installation may damage the copier. Please note the following during initial installation
and whenever the copier is moved.
If the copier is moved from a cool place to a warm place, condensation may
form inside the copier. Operation in this condition will cause poor copy quality
and malfunctions. Leave the copier at room temperature for at least 2 hours
before use.
1
Getting started
Do not install your copier in areas that are:
●
damp, humid, or very dusty
●
exposed to direct sunlight
●
poorly ventilated
●
subject to extreme temperature or humidity
changes, e.g., near an air conditioner or
heater.
The copier should be installed near an accessible power outlet
for easy connection.
Be sure to connect the power cord only to a power outlet that
meets the specified voltage and current requirements.
Also make certain the outlet is properly grounded.

Getting started
A small amount of ozone is produced within the copier during operation. The emission
level is insufficient to cause any health hazard.
NOTE:
The present recommended long term exposure limit for ozone is 0.1 ppm (0.2 mg/m3)
calculated as an 8 hr. time-weighted average concentration.
However, since the small amount that is emitted may have an objectionable odor, it is
advisable to place the copier in a ventilated area.
CAUTIONS ON HANDLING
Be careful in handling the copier as follows to maintain the performance of this copier.
Do not drop the copier, subject it to shock
or strike it against any object.
Store spare toner cartridges in a cool dry place without removing from the

tray after a misfeed. Return the required number of originals. Then this number will disappear
when copying is resumed or the clear ( ) key is pressed.
When the SPF misfeeds an original sheet, the copier will stop and the SPF misfeed ( ) indicator
will blink, while the misfeed ( ) indicator will remain off. For a misfeed of originals in the SPF,
see page 38.
Ensure that the bypass tray is open and then open the side cover while pressing the

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.
