Carrying the Printer
CAUTION:
Do not carry the printer by holding the front panel or by holding it at the
front and rear. This could result in damage to the printer or personal
injury if the printer is dropped.
10
Selecting the Printer Location
The EP-25 cartridge contains a photosensitive part called the “drum,”
which has characteristics similar to photo film. It also contains black
carbon powder called “toner.” The drum is extremely sensitive to light
and may deteriorate if exposed to light. Poor print quality can result if the
toner becomes caked or unevenly distributed inside the cartridge.
Follow the instructions below when handling the cartridge.
❏ Do not open the protective bag containing the cartridge until you are
ready to install it in the printer.
❏ Save the protective bag. You may need to repack and transport the
cartridge at a later date.
❏ Do not expose the cartridge to direct sunlight. Do not expose it to
bright light or room light for more than 5 minutes.
❏ Do not open the drum’s protective shutter on the cartridge. If the
shutter is open and the drum is damaged, print quality may deteriorate.
❏ Do not touch the drum’s protective shutter.

English
Installing the EP-25 Cartridge
❏ Do not stand the cartridge on end, or turn it upside down. Toner could
become caked in the cartridge resulting in poor print quality.
❏ Keep the cartridge away from a monitor’s cathode ray tube (CRT),
disk drives, and floppy disks. The magnet inside the cartridge can
destroy the image data in the CRT, or data on the disks.
CAUTION:
Do not dispose of toner cartridges in fire. Toner powder is flammable.
1.
Remove the cartridge from its protective bag.
Save the protective bag. You may need to repack and transport the
cartridge at a later date.
2.
12
Gently rock the cartridge from side to side five or six times. This
evenly distributes the toner inside the cartridge. Uneven toner
distribution causes poor print quality.
Installing the EP-25 Cartridge
Place the cartridge on a sturdy surface. Snap the tab at the end of the
cartridge backwards and fold it back and forth until it is loose.
4.
While holding the cartridge firmly with one hand, pull the sealing
tape in the direction indicated in the illustration below.

Caution:
When setting the toner cartridge, do not put your hands too far inside the
printer. Your hands may be pinched if the front cover closes.
7.
Always close the front cover immediately after inserting a cartridge.
Do not leave the front cover open. Exposure to light can damage the
cartridge’s drum.
