Working safely with your laser printer
Notes on your safety and operating safety
Working improperly with the printer can result in health hazards, electric
shocks and even fires. Before you unpack the laser printer, you should
make yourself familiar with this information on your safety and operating
safety.
CAUTION
Observe the following information:
➜ Make sure that the power cable is correctly plugged into the socket
and that the socket is at all times visible and readily accessible.
➜
Do not pull on the cable to pull the power plug out of the socket as this
may damage the cable. The result could be an electric shock or a fire.
➜
Remove the power plug from the socket if the machine will not be in
use for an extended period of time.
➜
Do not remove the power cable from the socket with wet hands as this
may result in an electric shock.
➜
Do not move the unit unless the power cable has been removed from
the socket. Otherwise you may damage the cable. The result could be
a short-circuit or a fire.
➜
Do not place any heavy objects on the power cable. Do not pull or kink
the cable as this can result in damage to the cable. The result could
be an electric shock or a fire.
➜
Make sure that the machine is not standing on a cable to another
machine as this can result in damage to that cable. The result could
be a fire or improper functioning of the unit in question.
➜
Make sure that the power supply to the unit has the correct voltage.
Otherwise the result could be a fire or an electric shock.
➜
Switch off the unit immediately and unplug the power cable if the
power supply cable is damaged. Failure to do so could result in a fire
or an electric shock. Inform your customer support technical specialist.
➜
Use only extension cables that are designed for at least the maximum
power rating of the machine. Extension cables with lower ratings can
result in the unit overheating and can even lead to a fire.

Laser safety
This printer is equipped with a laser. If the printer is used in accordance
with the instructions in this User’s Manual, the laser presents no danger.
The radiation emitted is completely absorbed and attenuated by the case.
The laser radiation cannot escape at any time during the printing
procedure.
This laser printer is categorized as a Class 1 printer. This classification
means that the printer does not produce any hazardous laser radiation.
Internal laser radiation
Average radiation output:
0.6 mW at the laser aperture of the print head unit.
Wavelength: 770-810 nm
This device works with a laser diode of class 3b with invisible laser
radiation. The laser diode and the polygon mirror for sampling are
integrated in the print head unit.
The print head unit is NOT AN ITEM TO BE MAINTAINED ON SITE. You
should therefore not open it under any circumstances.
CAUTION
Dangerous laser radiation!
Using the printer in a manner other than as indicated in this manual may
result in exposure to dangerous radiation.
➜
Use the printer only according to the instructions contained in this
User’s Manual.
This is a semiconductor laser printer. The maximum radiation output of the
laser diode is 5 mW. The wavelength is 770-810 nm.

Safety label
Laser caution label
Ozone emission
Small quantities of ozone escape during the printing process. These
quantities do not represent a health hazard. In spite of this, you should
take care that the area in which the machine is located has adequate
ventilation, especially if you are printing large quantities of materials or if
the machine is being used continuously over a long period of time.

mode.
➜
Select “ON“ to print your documents using a minimal amount of toner.
➜
Select “OFF“ to print your documents with the normal amount of toner.
Optimizing the print quality of text and graphics (Fine-ART)
Use the “Fine-Art“ function to smooth the edges of text and graphics and

➜
Select “OFF“ to achieve an optimum print quality for photos (raster
graphics).
➜
“MEDIUM“ is the default setting and is adequate for most text and
graphics.
➜
Select “LIGHT“ to smooth the edges of text and graphics by means of
a small number of dots. In the print-out this produces a softer transition
at the edges.
➜
Select “DARK“ to smooth the edges of text and graphics by means of
a large number of dots. In the print-out this produces a harder
transition at the edges.
Specifying the toner density
The amount of toner used is specified by means of the “Toner density“
function.
✎
High toner density = high toner consumption!
Increasing the toner density produces a darker print-out but increases

Minolta’s concern for environmental protection
What does the energy star mean?
Laser printers with the Energy Star® feature switch into a state with low
power consumption if they have not been used for a certain amount of
time. This function can reduce your electricity costs by up to 60%.
This laser printer fulfills the energy efficiency criteria for the Energy Star®
of the EPA (US Environmental Protection Agency).
