Safety Instructions
Laser Printer Precautions
This printer uses laser technology. The following precautions
apply whenever you use the printer. Even if you are familiar with
other types of printers, be sure to follow these precautions
carefully to ensure safe, efficient operation.
❏ Because the printer weighs approximately 71.2 kg (157 lb)
without the consumable or optional products installed, you
should not lift or carry it by yourself. Four people should carry
it, lifting it at the correct positions. Refer to the instructions in
the Unpacking Guide.
❏ Be careful not to touch the fuser, which is marked CAUTION!
HIGH TEMPERATURE, or the surrounding areas. If the printer
has been in use, the fuser and the surrounding areas may be
very hot.
CAUTION! HIGH TEMPERATURE
Do not insert your hand deep
into the fuser unit.
❏ Do not insert your hand deep into the fuser unit as some
components are sharp and may cause injury.
❏ Avoid touching the components inside the printer unless
instructed to do so in this guide.
Safety Instructions
1
❏ Never force the printer’s components into place. Although the
printer is designed to be sturdy, rough handling can damage
it.
❏ When handling toner cartridges, always place them on a
clean, smooth surface.
❏ Do not attempt to modify or take the toner cartridges apart.
They cannot be refilled.
❏ Do not touch the toner and avoid all contact with your eyes.
❏ Do not dispose of used toner cartridges, waste toner
collectors, or photoconductor units in fire, as they can explode
and cause injury. Dispose of them according to local
regulations.
❏ Wait for at least one hour before using a toner cartridge or a
photoconductor unit after moving it from a cool to a warm
environment to prevent damage from condensation.
❏ When removing the photoconductor unit, avoid exposing it
to room light any longer than necessary. The unit contains a
green-colored 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 unit out of the printer for long periods,
cover it with an opaque cloth.
2
Safety Instructions
❏ Be sure not to scratch the surface of the drum. When you
remove the photoconductor unit from the printer, always set
the unit on a clean, smooth surface. Also, avoid touching the
drum, since oil from your skin can permanently damage its
surface and may affect print quality.
❏ To get the best print quality, do not store the 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.
❏ Be sure to keep consumable components out of the reach of
children.
❏ Do not leave jammed paper inside the printer. This can cause
the printer to overheat.

❏ When using an extension cord, be careful not to exceed its
recommended amperage limit. Also, be sure that all items
plugged into the electrical outlet do not exceed a total of 15
amperes.
❏ Never push objects of any kind through cabinet slots as they
may touch dangerous voltage points or short out parts that
could result in fire or electric shock.
❏ Never spill liquid of any kind onto the printer.
❏ Unless specifically instructed in this guide, do not attempt to
service this product yourself. Opening or removing those
covers that are marked Do Not Remove may expose you to
dangerous voltage points or other risks. Refer all servicing in
those compartments to a qualified service representative.
