Safety Information
For Your Safety
To prevent severe injury and loss of life, read this section carefully before using the Panasonic DP-1515P to ensure
proper and safe operation of your machine.
■ This section explains the Warnings and Cautions used in this Operating Instructions manual.
WARNING
Denotes a potential hazard that could result in serious injury or death.
CAUTION
Denotes hazards that could result in minor injury or damage to the machine.
■ This section also explains the graphic symbols used in this Operating Instructions manual.
These symbols are used to alert operators to a specific operating procedure that must not be
performed.
These symbols are used to alert operators to a specific operating procedure that must be
emphasized in order to operate the machine safely.
WARNING
Power and Ground Connection
Cautions
Ensure that the plug connection is free of
dust. In a damp environment, a contaminated
connector can draw a significant amount of
current that can generate heat and eventually
cause fire if left unattended over an extended
period of time.
Always use the power cord provided with your
machine. When an extension power cord is
required, always use a properly rated cord.
● 220-240 V AC / 6.5 A
If you use a cord with an unspecified current
rating, the machine or plug may emit smoke
or become hot to the touch.
Do not attempt to repair, pull, bend, chafe or
otherwise damage the power cord. Do not
place a heavy object on the cord. A damaged
cord can cause fire or electric shocks.
Never touch a power cord with wet hands.
Danger of electric shock exists.
If the power cord is damaged or insulated
wires are exposed, contact the authorized
Panasonic dealer for a replacement. Using a
damaged cord can cause fire or electric
shocks.
When disconnecting the machine, grasp the
plug instead of the cord. Pulling on a cord
forcibly can damage it and cause fire or
electric shock.
Stop operation immediately if your machine
emits smoke, excessive heat, unusual noise,
or abnormal smell, or if water is spilt onto the
machine. These conditions can cause fire.
Immediately switch Off and unplug the
machine, and contact the authorized
Panasonic dealer.
Do not disconnect or reconnect the machine
while the power switch is in the On position.
Disconnecting a live connector can cause
arcing, consequently deforming the plug and
cause fire.
When the machine is not used over an
extended period of time, switch it Off and
unplug it. If an unused machine is left
connected to a power source for a long
period, degraded insulation can cause electric
shocks, current leakage or fire.
Be sure to switch Off and unplug the machine
before accessing the interior of the machine
for cleaning, maintenance or fault clearance.
Access to a live machine’s interior can cause
electric shock.
Once a month, unplug the machine and check
the power cord for the following. If you notice
any unusual condition, contact the authorized
Panasonic dealer.
● The power cord is plugged firmly into the
receptacle.
● The plug is not excessively heated, rusted,
or bent.
● The plug and receptacle are free of dust.
● The cord is not cracked or frayed.

Before Starting
Safety Information
Do not touch areas where these caution labels
are attached to, the surface may be very hot
and may cause severe burns.
Never open or remove machine covers that
are secured with screws unless specifically
instructed in the “Operating Instructions”. A
high-voltage component can cause electric
shocks.
Do not place any liquid container such as a
vase or coffee cup on the machine. Spilt
water can cause fire or shock hazard.
Do not try to alter the machine configuration
or modify any parts. An unauthorized
modification can cause smoke or fire.
Operating Safeguards
Do not place any metal parts such as staples
or clips on the machine. If metal and
flammable parts get into the machine, they
can short-circuit internal components, and
cause fire or electric shocks.
If debris (metal or liquid) gets into the
machine, switch Off and unplug the machine
immediately. Contact the authorized
Panasonic dealer. Operating a debriscontaminated machine can cause fire or
electric shock.
Consumable Safeguards
Never dispose of toner, toner cartridge or a
toner waste container into an open flame.
Toner remaining in the cartridge can cause an
explosion, burns and/or injuries.
CAUTION
Installation and Relocation
Cautions
Do not place the machine near heaters or
volatile, flammable, or combustible materials
such as curtains that may catch fire.
Do not place the machine in a hot, humid,
dusty or poorly ventilated environment.
Prolonged exposure to these adverse
conditions can cause fire or electric shocks.
Place the machine on a level and sturdy
surface that can withstand a weight of
the machine. (The machine weight without
optional unit : 43.6 kg) If tilted, the machine
may tip-over and cause injuries.
When relocating the machine, contact the
authorized Panasonic dealer.
When moving the machine, be sure to unplug
the power cord from the outlet. If the machine
is moved with the power cord attached, it can
cause damage to the cord which could result
in fire or electric shock.
Operating Safeguards
Do not place a magnet near the safety switch
of the machine. A magnet can activate the
machine accidentally, resulting in injuries.
Do not use a highly flammable spray or
solvent near the machine. It can cause fire.
When copying a thick document, do not use
excessive force to press it against the platen
glass. The glass may break and cause injuries.

This symbol is used to alert operators to a
heated surface that may cause burns and
requires close attention.
Never touch a labelled area. You can get
burnt. If a sheet of paper is wrapped around
the heat roller, do not try to remove it yourself
to avoid injuries or burns. Switch Off the
machine immediately, and contact the
authorized Panasonic dealer.
Do not use conductive paper, ex: folding
paper, carbon paper and coated paper. When
a misfed paper occurs, they can cause a short
circuit and fire.
Do not place any heavy object on the
machine. An off-balance machine can tip-over
or the heavy object can fall, causing damage
and/or injuries.
Keep the room ventilated when using the
machine for an extended period of time to
minimize the ozone density in the air.
When copying with the ADF open, do not look
directly at the exposure lamp. Direct eye
exposure can cause eye fatigue or eye injury.
When removing misfed paper, make sure that
no pieces of torn paper are left in the
machine. A piece of paper remaining in the
machine can cause fire. If a sheet of paper is
wrapped around the heat roller or when
clearing a misfed paper that is difficult or
impossible to see, do not try to remove it by
yourself. Doing so can cause injuries or
burns. Switch Off the machine immediately,
and contact the authorized Panasonic dealer.
Be sure to use the specified type of batteries
only.
Ensure that batteries are installed with correct
polarity. Incorrectly installed batteries can
burst or leak, resulting in spillage or injuries.
Others
■ The machine has a built-in circuit for protection against
lightning-induced surge current. If lightning strikes in your
neighborhood, switch Off the machine. Disconnect the
power cord from the machine and reconnect only when
the lightning has stopped.
Before Starting
Consumable Safeguards
Others
■ If you notice flickering or distorted images or noises on
your audio-visual units, your machine may be causing
radio interference. Switch it Off and if the interference
disappears, the machine is the cause of the radio
interference. Perform the following procedure until the
interference is corrected.
● Move the machine and the TV and/or radio away from
each other.
● Reposition or reorient the machine and the TV and/or
radio.
● Unplug the machine, TV and/or radio, and replug them
into outlets operating on different circuits.
● Reorient the TV and/or radio antennas and cables
until the interference stops. For an outdoor antenna,
ask your local electrician for support.
● Use a coaxial cable antenna.
