When choosing a place for the printer ❏ Avoid places subject to rapid changes in temperature and humidity. Also, keep the printer away from direct sunlight, strong light, or heat sources. ❏ Avoid places subject to dust, shocks, and vibrations. ❏ Leave enough room around the printer to allow for sufficient ventilation. ❏ Place the printer near a wall outlet where the plug can be easily unplugged. ❏ Place the printer on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond the printer base in all directions. If you place the printer by the wall, leave more than 10 cm between the back of the printer and the wall.

Do not use a damaged or frayed power cord. If you use an extension cord with the printer, make sure that the total ampere rating of the devices plugged into the extension cord does not exceed the cord’s ampere rating. Also, make sure that the total ampere rating of all devices plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed the wall outlet’s ampere rating. ❏ If you plan to use the printer in Germany, the building installation must be protected by a 10 or 16 amp circuit breaker to provide adequate short-circuit protection and over-current protection for this printer.
