Chapter 6 - Maintenance and Specifications
Introduction
Your PlateMaker 4 printer requires minimal maintenance. This chapter describes how
to handle, store, move, and clean your printer and contains technical specifications
and warranty information.
Maintenance
Proper care will extend the printer’s life. Use the guidelines in this section to maintain
your printer in optimum working condition and to ensure the highest quality output.
Handling the Printer
Use the following guidelines when handling or using your printer.
The printer weighs approximately 58.5 lb (26.5 kg) without the toner, cassettes, and
media installed. Always have two people lift the printer using the recessed grip areas
on the right and left sides.
•
At the end of the day, turn off the printer following the procedure in chapter 1.
•
Never move the printer with the toner cartridge installed.
•
Do not place anything on top of the printer.
•
Always lift the printer by the recessed grip areas on the bottom—never by the
cartridge slot or multipurpose feeder.
•
Only use media that meets printer requirements. See “Media Specifications” in
chapter 5 for details.
•
Make sure the printer’s location meets the requirements in “Printer Location” in
chapter 1.
•
Never oil the printer.
•
Allow the printer side vent at least 8.0" (200 mm) clearance to prevent
overheating. Never insert anything into the vent.
•
Make sure the output tray does not overfill. Overfilling can block media as it
comes out and cause a printer jam.
•
Check the power cord and plug monthly and replace it immediately if you find
any damage.
Storing the Printer
Use the following procedure when storing the printer for an extended period.

6.
Clean both rollers with denatured alcohol and a lint-free cloth. Turn the fusing
unit upside down to access the fusing roller.
To prevent printer damage, wipe area lightly; do not rub.
7.
Vacuum the area using a soft brush attachment or blow compressed air into the
printer.
Wear protective safety glasses when using compressed air.
Do not pull out any wires while performing this step.
8.
Slide the left side of the fuser assembly under the metal bracket and lower into
place.

Reassemble the printer and reconnect it to the power source.
Exterior Cleaning
1.
Turn off your printer and disconnect it from the power source.
Use only water or mild detergent for cleaning. To prevent discoloration, cracking, and
deformation of the case, do not use alcohol, ammonia-based cleaners, or other volatile
cleaners on or around the printer. Never spray or pour solutions directly on the
printer. Always put the solution on the cloth and wipe the printer with the cloth.

Warranty and Service Options
XANTÉ recommends that only XANTÉ trained service engineers perform service on
your printer. In addition to the one year limited warranty, XANTÉ offers a cross-ship
exchange program and an on-site service plan for users in the United States and
Canada.
XANTÉ provides a one year limited warranty against defects in material and
workmanship on your printer. See “Limited Warranty” later in this chapter. To obtain
warranty service, call customer support for an RMA (Return Material Authorization)
number and return your printer to the XANTÉ Customer Repair Center, freight
prepaid. For locations within the United States and Canada, XANTÉ repairs your
printer within five business days.
With XANTÉ’s cross-ship exchange program, a replacement printer is cross-shipped
to you if the XANTÉ technician determines that the problem cannot be resolved over
the phone or with replacement parts. This plan is designed to minimize printer
downtime and includes an option for an additional fee which allows you to bypass all
repair attempts and receive a cross-shipped replacement printer immediately.
Maintenance and Specifications 6-9
XANTÉ’s on-site service plan provides maintenance service performed at your
location by a trained technician. With this plan, if you are within 50 miles of the
nearest authorized service center, a trained service technician is dispatched to your
site by the end of the next business day to begin servicing your printer.
For details on these plans or to request service under one of these plans, call XANTÉ
Customer Support at 800-926-8839 (US and Canada) or your XANTÉ vendor.
Limited Warranty
XANTÉ CORPORATION warrants this product against defects in material and
workmanship for a period of ONE (1) YEAR from the date of original purchase of the
PlateMaker 4 series printer.
In case of defect, XANTÉ CORPORATION will, at its option, repair or replace this
product at no charge to you provided you return the product, freight prepaid, to us
during the warranty period. Please attach your name, address, telephone number, a
description of the problem, and proof of date of original purchase. This warranty
does not apply if the product has been damaged by accident, abuse, misuse,
misapplication, or if the product has been modified without the written permission of
XANTÉ CORPORATION.
XANTÉ CORPORATION IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM ANY BREACH OF
WARRANTY, OR UNDER ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, INCLUDING LOST
PROFITS, DOWNTIME, GOODWILL, DAMAGE TO OR REPLACEMENT OF
EQUIPMENT AND PROPERTY, AND ANY COSTS OF RECOVERING,
REPROGRAMMING, OR REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA STORED IN
OR USED WITH XANTÉ CORPORATION PRODUCTS.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential
damages or limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation
or exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and
you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE ARE
LIMITED IN DURATION TO ONE (1) YEAR FROM THE DATE OF ORIGINAL
PURCHASE OF THE PLATEMAKER 4 PRINTER.
