• Do not install the unit where it may be exposed to direct sunlight, near heating equipment, or near air-conditioning vents as this may cause stretching and/or discoloration of the screen.

• Do not install the unit in strong sunlight or strong lighting. Proper copying may become impossible.

• Do not install the unit in locations where the temperature may change suddenly as this may disable the unit’s ability to make copies.

• Make thick and dark lines inside the copying area. Note that any writing inside the shaded area (on right) cannot be copied.

an extended period of time as it will become harder to erase.

25 mm

• Do not touch the screen, write with markers, or erase while the screen is moving as this may result in damage to the unit.

12.5 mm

• Use only the included or designated markers, erasers and thermal transfer film.

(See page 36.)

Use of accessories other than those included or designated (such as oil-based markers) may damage the screen or result in hard-to-erase markings.

• Do not store the thermal transfer film in a location subject to extreme changes in temperature (such as near air conditioning or heating equipment) as this may cause condensation on the thermal transfer film and result in poor print quality and/or paper jams.

• The length of one roll of designated thermal transfer film (Replacement film: UG-

6001) is approximately 50 meters. One roll of thermal transfer film can make approximately 150 sheets of copies.

Note that the total number of copies may differ depending on the operating conditions.

Also note that the length of the thermal transfer film supplied with the unit is shorter than the replacement film roll and is only approximately 10 meters.

• Store markers horizontally as vertical storage may stop the ink from coming out.

• When moving the unit, disconnect the power cord from the electrical power socket and from the printer’s power connector and coil it for transportation as stepping on the power cord or having it catch on something during movement may result in damage to the cord.

• Dispose of the used thermal transfer film in a trash receptacle for burnable trash.

• A negative of the copied image will remain on the thermal transfer film. (To protect the security of your information, we recommend cutting up the used thermal transfer film with scissors or shredder before disposing of it.)

• Use a shielded USB cable that is certified as logo by USB-IF.

• If you connect the electronic board to a USB hub, it is not guaranteed to work.

Note

Special Note for Windows 98/Me

If your computer had Windows 98/Me pre-installed and the original Windows 98/Me CD-ROM or diskettes were not included. In this situation, please try to locate the necessary files by following the methods described below or refer to your computer’s User’s

Guide for more details.

Method-1:

Specify the Windows 98/Me backup file location in the hard disk of your computer.

Generally, the Windows 98/Me backup files are located in the “WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS” folder.

Type “C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS” in the [Copy files from:] box on the “Copying Files...” dialog box, where “C:” is your Windows 98/Me boot drive and then click the [OK] button.

If the necessary files are found, the installation will proceed.

Otherwise, click the [Details...] button, a dialog box appears as shown below including the cabinet file name (*.CAB listed under the Description File) that contains the necessary file.

In this example, the cabinet file name is

“DRIVER20.CAB”. (Note that the cabinet file name may vary depending on your computer.)

Computer Interfacing

To search for the file in your computer

1

Click the [Start] button on the Task Bar and then click on [Find][Files or

Folders...] (Windows 98) or [Search]

[For Files or Folders...] (Windows Me).

2

A dialog box appears prompting for a file name to be searched, type

“DRIVER*.CAB” in the [Named:]

(Windows 98) or [Search for files or

folders named:] (Windows Me) box, choose “C:” in the [Look in:] box and check the box for [Include subfolders]

(only for Windows 98).

3

Click the [Find Now] (Windows 98) or

[Search Now] (Windows Me) button.

When the cabinet file is found, make a note of the folder name where the file is located.

4

Return to the “Copying Files...” dialog box and type the folder name in the

[Copy files from:] box. For example, type “C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS”.

Then click the [OK] button.

Method-2:

Create the Windows 98/Me backup diskettes and then specify the diskettes.

Depending on the computer, there is usually a tool from the manufacturer to create the Windows 98/Me backup diskettes in a Windows 98/Me pre-installed system. Please refer to your PC’s User’s Guide for more details on this tool.

Create the Window 98/Me backup diskettes by using this tool, and then install the USB and Printer driver by following the procedures from Step 1.

Daily Care and Maintenance

Always turn off the power switch and unplug the power plug when cleaning outside and inside the unit.

Cleaning the screen and the unit

Gently wipe the screen film and unit with a waterdampened cloth that has been thoroughly wrung.

• Use a kitchen cleaner diluted with water for hard-toclean stains.

• If you accidentally write on the board with an oil-based marker, wipe with a small amount of ethyl alcohol.

Notes

• Do not use thinner, benzine or cleaners containing abrasives as this may result in discoloration.

• Do not wipe the screen film with a dry cloth as this may generate a static charge.

Caring for the eraser

When the erasing surface of the eraser becomes dirty, hold down the sheet under the top sheet with your finger and peel off the dirty sheet by pulling in the direction of the arrow.

Note

• When the eraser becomes thin, make sure that the corners of the eraser do not strike the screen during erasing as this may damage the screen.

Cleaning the printer head, platen roller and pick-up roller

If black streaks appear on the copy, clean the printer head and the platen roller.

If paper jams occur frequently, clean the pick-up roller.
