User’s Guide
❏ Use a grounded outlet that matches the printer’s power plug. Do not use an adapter plug.
❏ Avoid using an electrical outlet that is controlled by wall switches or automatic timers. Accidental
disruption of power can erase valuable information in your computer’s and printer’s memory.
❏ Make sure that there is no dust on the socket.
❏ Be sure to insert the plug completely into the electrical outlet.
❏ Do not handle the plug with wet hands.

built-in installation unless proper ventilation is provided.
❏ Keep the entire computer and printer system away from potential sources of interference, such as
loudspeakers or the base units of cordless telephones.
❏ Leave adequate room around the printer to allow for sufficient ventilation.
Using the printer
❏ Be careful not to touch the fuser, which is marked CAUTION, or the surrounding areas. If the
printer has been in use, the fuser and the surrounding areas may be very hot. If you must touch one
of these areas, turn off the printer and wait 30 minutes to allow the heat to subside before doing
so.
a. CAUTION
b. Do not insert your hand deep into the fuser unit.
Safety Instructions

Epson AcuLaser M2300/M2310/M2400/M2410 Series
User’s Guide
❏ Do not insert your hand deep into the fuser unit as some components are sharp and may cause
injury.
❏ Never push objects of any kind through cabinet slots as they may touch dangerous voltage points
or short out parts that could result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
❏ Do not sit or lean on the printer. Do not put heavy objects on the printer.
❏ Do not use any kind of combustible gases in or around the printer.
❏ Never force the printer’s components into place. Although the printer is designed to be sturdy,
rough handling can damage it.
❏ Do not leave jammed paper inside the printer. This can cause the printer to overheat.
❏ Never spill liquid of any kind on the printer.
❏ Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions. Improper adjustment of
other controls may result in damage and may require repair by a qualified service representative.
❏ Do not turn off the printer:
- After turning on the printer, wait until the Ready light is on.
- While the Data light is on or flashing.
- While printing.
❏ Avoid touching the components inside the printer unless instructed to do so in this guide.
❏ Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the printer.
❏ Except as specifically explained in the printer’s documentation, do not attempt to service this
printer yourself.
❏ Periodically disconnect the plug from the electrical outlet and clean the blades.
❏ Do not disconnect the plug while the printer is on.
❏ If the printer will not be used for a long time, disconnect the plug from the electrical outlet.
❏ Unplug this printer from the wall outlet before cleaning.
❏ Use a well-wrung cloth for cleaning and do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners.
Handling consumable products and maintenance parts
❏ Do not burn used consumable products or maintenance parts because they might explode and
injure someone. Dispose of them according to local regulations.
Safety Instructions
15
Epson AcuLaser M2300/M2310/M2400/M2410 Series
User’s Guide
❏ Be sure to keep consumable products and maintenance parts out of the reach of children.
❏ When handling a toner cartridge, always place it on a clean, smooth surface.
❏ Do not attempt to modify a toner cartridge or take it apart.
❏ Do not touch the toner. Always keep toner away from your eyes. If toner gets on your skin or
clothes, wash it off with soap and water immediately.
❏ If toner is spilled, use a broom and dustpan or a damp cloth with soap and water to clean it up.
Because the fine particles can cause a fire or explosion if they come into contact with a spark, do not
use a vacuum cleaner.
❏ Wait at least one hour before using a toner cartridge after moving it from a cool to a warm
environment to prevent damage from condensation.
❏ To get the best print quality, do not store the toner cartridge, developer unit, or photoconductor
unit in an area subject to direct sunlight, dust, salty air, or corrosive gases (such as ammonia).
Avoid locations subject to extreme or rapid changes in temperature or humidity.
❏ When removing the photoconductor unit, do not expose it to sunlight at all and avoid exposing it
to room light for more than five minutes. The photoconductor unit contains a light-sensitive
drum. Exposure to light can damage the drum, causing dark or light areas to appear on the printed
page and reducing the service life of the drum. If you need to keep the photoconductor unit out of
the printer for long periods, cover it with an opaque cloth.
❏ Be careful not to scratch the surface of the drum. When you remove the photoconductor unit from
the printer, always place it on a clean, smooth surface. Avoid touching the drum, since oil from
your skin can permanently damage its surface and affect print quality.

Precautions During Replacement
Always observe the following handling precautions when replacing consumable products or
maintenance parts:
For details about replacement, see the instructions that come with the consumable products or
maintenance parts.
w
Warning:
❏ Be careful not to touch the fuser, which is marked CAUTION, or the surrounding areas. If the
printer has been in use, the fuser and surrounding areas may be very hot.
❏ Do not dispose of used consumable products or maintenance parts in fire, as they may explode
and cause injury. Dispose of them according to local regulations.
❏ Provide enough space for the replacement procedure. You will have to open some parts (such as
the printer cover) of the printer when you are replacing consumable products or maintenance
parts.
❏ Do not install the consumable products or maintenance parts that reach end of service life into the
printer.
For details about the handling precautions, see “Handling consumable products and maintenance
parts” on page 15.
Replacement Messages
If a consumable product or maintenance part reaches the end of its service life, the printer displays the
following lights on the panel or the window of EPSON Status Monitor. When this happens, replace the
depleted consumable product or maintenance part.
Note that the toner cartridge supplied with your printer is partly used during the initial setup,
therefore the cartridge prints fewer pages compared to subsequent toner cartridges.

instructions.
Note:
Error Lights appear for one replacement product at a time. After replacing a replacement product, check
the lights on the panel for other replacement products.
❏ The toner cartridge is not an independent unit that you install directly into the printer. The
cartridge needs to be inserted into the developer unit’s casing and then installed into the printer.
w
Warning:
❏ Do not touch the toner. Always keep toner away from your eyes. If toner gets on your skin or
clothes, wash it off with soap and water immediately.
❏ Keep consumable products and maintenance parts out of the reach of children.
❏ Do not dispose of used consumable products or maintenance parts in fire, as they may explode
and cause injury. Dispose of them according to local regulations.
❏ If toner is spilled, use a broom and dustpan or a damp cloth with soap and water to clean it up.
Because the fine particles can cause a fire or explosion if they come into contact with a spark, do
not use a vacuum cleaner.
❏ Be careful not to touch the fuser, which is marked CAUTION, or surrounding areas. If the
printer has been in use, the fuser and the surrounding areas may be very hot. If you must touch
one of these areas, wait 30 minutes to allow the heat subside before doing so.
