Equipment refers to the printer. The safety precautions noted on the following pages are intended to instruct you in the safe and correct operation of the printer to prevent injuries or damage to yourself or other persons. WARNING Store the equipment in a place where it cannot be reached by children. Y P O Do not disassemble or modify the equipment. If the equipment is dropped or the casing becomes damaged, do not continue operation. Stop operating the equipment immediately if it emits smoke or noxious fumes. Immediately contact the retail outlet or a Canon Customer Support center. Do not allow water or other liquids to enter the interior of the equipment. If the equipment is subjected to water droplets or damp salty air, gently wipe it with a soft, absorbent cloth. Do not insert or drop metallic objects or flammable substances into the equipment interior. If this occurs, immediately turn off the printer power and remove the power cord from the power outlet. C Do not touch metal parts of the devices or the power plug during thunderstorms. Immediately stop using the equipment and distance yourself from it. Do not use flammable solvents such as alcohol, benzine, or paint thinner to clean the equipment. Do not rest heavy objects on the power cord or plug, pull on it with excessive force or damage it. Do not use power cords other than the supplied power cord. Remove the power cord on a regular periodic basis and wipe away the dust and dirt that collects on the plug, the exterior of the power outlet and the surrounding area. Leaving the equipment plugged in during prolonged periods of non-use poses risk of electric shock or fire. Do not handle the power cord if your hands are wet. Do not play the supplied CD-ROM(s) in any CD player that does not support data CD-ROMs. Playing the CD-ROM(s) in an audio CD player (music player) could damage the speakers.

Do not use or store the equipment in the following types of places. • Humid or dusty areas • Places subject to strong vibrations • Places near flames or subject to direct sunlight • Places that may heat up such as an automobile trunk or dashboard Do not allow metallic pins to touch or allow dirt to collect on the power plug. Do not excessively pull or bend the power cord. Do not use the power cord for any other equipment except this printer, use it beyond its rated capacity or voltage, or leave the plug partially inserted into a power outlet. Y P O Do not open the cartridge cover during printing. • If you do so, printing will stop. • Paper moves back and forth in the printer during printing.
