To ensure the longest life from your print cartridge and optimum performance from your printer:

• Keep a new print cartridge in its packaging until you are ready to install it.

Do not remove a print cartridge from the printer except to replace, clean, or store it in an air-tight container. The print cartridge does not print correctly if removed from the printer and left exposed for an extended period of time.

• If a print cartridge runs out of ink, leave the empty cartridge in the printer until you are ready to replace it. Printing with one of the print cartridge carriers empty may cause printer problems.

Lexmark’s printer warranty does not cover repair of failures or damage caused by a refilled cartridge. Lexmark does not recommend use of refilled cartridges. Refilling cartridges can affect print quality and cause damage to the printer. For best results, use Lexmark supplies.

ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED

WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THE

IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF

FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR

DURATION TO THE WARRANTY

EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WILL

APPLY AFTER THIS PERIOD.

Your sole remedy under this

Statement of Limited Warranty is set forth in this section. For any claim concerning performance or nonperformance of Lexmark or a

Remarketer for this product under this Statement of Limited Warranty, you may recover actual damages up to the limit set forth in the following paragraph.

Lexmark's liability for actual damages from any cause whatsoever will be limited to the greater of 1) $5,000 or 2) the amount you paid for the product that caused the damages. This limitation of liability will not apply to claims by you for bodily injury or damage to real property or tangible personal property for which Lexmark is legally liable. In no event will

Lexmark be liable for any lost profits, lost savings, incidental damage, or other economic consequential damages. This is true even if you advise Lexmark or a Remarketer of the possibility of such damages.

Lexmark is not liable for any claim by you based on a third party claim.

This limitation of remedies also applies to any developer of materials supplied to Lexmark. Lexmark’s and the developer’s limitations of remedies are not cumulative. Such developer is an intended beneficiary of this limitation.

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the limitations or exclusions contained above may not apply to you.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may also have other rights which vary from state to state.

Jetprinter has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC

Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

The FCC Class B limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.

• Consult your point of purchase or service representative for additional suggestions.

The manufacturer is not responsible for any radio or television interference caused by using other than recommended cables or by unauthorized changes or modifications to this equipment. Unauthorized changes or modifications could void the user's authority to operate this equipment.

Note: To assure compliance with FCC regulations on electromagnetic interference for a Class B computing device, use a properly shielded and grounded cable such as

Lexmark part number

1329605 for parallel attach or

43H5856 for USB attach. Use of a substitute cable not properly shielded and grounded may result in a violation of FCC regulations.
