When you install the print cartridge, the ink remain counter will automatically count every character printed and a
message “Please a new Ink” is displayed on the operator panel when the remaining ink is running short. If this message
appears (during read operation), prepare a new ink cartridge. When the imprinter cannot print any more, replace the
print cartridge with the new one and access the “Ink remain counter reset” in Setup mode.
Access the “Ink remain counter reset” operation even if you replace the print cartridge before the alarm.

(3) Clearing Paper Jam
If paper jams, clear the jammed paper as follows:
1
Remove all the documents on the stacker except the
jamed paper.
2
Open the ADF cover. The imprinter automatically
moves as shown in the figure.
3
Remove the jammed paper.
If the imprinter unit presses down on the paper, hold
the handle part (see the figure below for details) and
slightly lift the imprinter unit from the stacker to
remove the paper.
13
(4) Cleaning the Nozzle Surface of the Print Cartridge
Ink or stains stuck to the nozzle surface of the print cartridge or leaving the imprinter unused for a while cause poor
printing of characters because of blocked emission holes in the nozzle. If your imprinter has this trouble, clean the nozzle
surface of the print cartridge.
NOTE
For cleaning, use dry cloth or a lint free cloth, and gently wipe off dirt and stain from the surface of the nozzle. (Do
not use tissue paper.)
Clean the nozzle surface as follows:
1
Nozzle surface
Remove the print cartridge. (Refer to Item (1) in this
chapter.)
Dry cloth
2 Gently wipe off the dirt and stain from the nozzle
surface.
3 Make sure that the dirt and stain are all removed and then reinstall the print cartridge. (Refer to Item (1) in this
chapter.)
14
(5) Cleaning the Imprinter Base
With increased use of the imprinter, dirt such as ink sticks to the imprinter base, causing dirt on the paper.
As part of daily maintenance, clean the imprinter base by following the procedure below:
NOTE
When cleaning, gently wipe off dust on the imprinter base, especially the dotted area below, with an absorbent item
that can remove the ink.
If the ink hardens, gently wipe with a moistened cloth. (Since the ink is water-soluble, it can be cleaned with water.)
Clean the imprinter base as follows:
1
Lift the imprinter.
2
Clean the imprinter base.
Clean the base especially
focusing on the dotted area.
Enlarged figure
15
Edge
Shutter part
As shown in the above figures, press a cloth against the edge and
base of the shutter part and wipe out dirt.
3 Check that the dirt is wiped out and gently return the
imprinter to its original position.
Base
Check whether the base is
cleaned completely.
[DAMAGE]
Use a cloth that is either dry or dampened with water when you clean the imprinter.
Use of the F1 or F2 cleaner may damage the imprinter.
16
4. Precautions
1.
When installing or replacing the print cartridge, be careful not to insert out of position.
2.
When printing near the edge of paper, note that printing may go across the edge depending on the setting position
of the imprinter.
3.
The " " mark on the imprinter indicates the printing position.
4.
Be careful not to touch the contacts or the nozzle on the bottom of the print cartridge. Poor printing or loose contact
may occur.
5.
Do not move the imprinter during printing. Printing may be out of order.
6.
Do not shock the imprinter or the print cartridge. Poor printing may occur.
7.
The shaded area shown at the right is used for the paper sensor to check the document. Note that the reflection
rate of this area must be more than 50%. (There must be no painting in this area)
Never punch binding holes in this area.
8.
The imprinter prints characters by spraying ink
directly to the paper being ejected. Due to this
printing method, printing may be unclear depending
on printing positions.
For clear printing, use the recommended printing
area shown at the right.
When using paper thinner than 0.06 mm (less than
52g/m2 (13.9 lb) , printing may become more unclear
and illegible. Especially in this case, the
recommended printing area should be used.
17
5. Error Messages
When the following error messages are displayed on the operator panel, the imprinter is malfunctioning. Recover the
imprinter according to the means following the cause.
P r i n t
A l a rm
Possible causes are as follows:
• The imprinter is set out of the paper path.
Set the imprinter in place.
• The stacker is full of documents.
Remove documents from the stacker.
