consumption of the printer.
➜
Only use grounded cords.
➜
Always observe the relevant local regulations regarding the connection of electrical equipment to the main network.
This laser printer requires a non-fluctuating power supply. If necessary,
ask an electrician for advice.

✎
Note
Improper handling may damage the printer!
- Never turn off the printer while a print job is in progress, the printer is
receiving data from the computer (blinking green “Ready” indicator on
control panel), or the printer is being reset.
➜
Set the power switch to the “I” (ON)
position to turn on the printer.
The printer is ready to use in approximately 20 seconds. The green
“Ready” indicator should be on (but
not blinking) and the orange “Error”
indicator off.
➜
Set the power switch to the
“O” (OFF) position to turn off the
printer.
✎
Saving energy is sensible!
When the printer has been inactive for a certain length of time, it automatically switches to the POWER SAVE mode. This time period can
be adjusted via the Windows printer tools (see chapter 6).
When the printer receives a new print job while in POWER SAVE
mode, it automatically switches to the warmup phase and is ready to
print within 7 seconds.
