Precautions
Never remove the cover, or take apart or modify the
product. This will void the warranty.
Do not position the electronic print board in a
location where it is not stable.
Do not put drinks or other liquids on the tray.
After installing or moving the electronic print board,
lock the casters and set the fall-prevention extension
legs.
Locking the casters
(Push this side)
Do not use the electronic print board in an
excessively humid or dusty location.
8
If the electronic print board is not going to be used
for an extended period of time (e.g., during extended
holidays) , turn off the power and remove the plug
from the wall outlet.
Precautions
Installation
• 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 locations having a temperature of 10°C or lower or
where the temperature may change suddenly as this may disable the unit's
ability to make copies.
Screen film
• Make thick and dark lines inside the copying
area. Note that any writing inside the
shaded area on the right figure cannot
35mm
be copied.
25mm
copying area
35mm
25mm
• Use a commercially available white board cleaner for hard-to-erase stains.
(SANFORD® EXPO® white board cleaner etc.)
• Do not erase with an overly dirty eraser. (See pages 75 and 77.)
• Do not allow writing to remain on the screen for an extended period of time
as it will become harder to erase.
• Periodically wipe the screen film gently with a water-dampened cloth that
has been thoroughly wrung. (See page 75.)
• Do not touch the screen, write with markers, or erase while the screen is
moving as this may result in damage to the unit.
Markers,
Erasers and
Thermal
transfer film
• Use only the included or designated markers, erasers and thermal transfer
film. (See page 81.)
Use of accessories other than those included or designated (such as oilbased markers) may damage the screen or result in hard-to-erase markings.
• Copy quality increases with the thickness of the drawn line. To ensure
quality copies, please use the markers (Big).
• The markers for interactive (Small) draw thin lines. The quality of the copies
may be reduced when these markers are used.
• 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.
• Store markers horizontally as vertical storage may stop the ink from coming
out.
• The length of one roll of designated thermal transfer film (Replacement film :
KX-BP081 or KX-BP082) is approximately 100 meters. One roll of thermal
transfer film can make approximately 300 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 20 meters.

Precautions
Power cord
and Interactive
cable
• Before moving the unit, disconnect the power cord from the electrical power
socket and AC inlet, and disconnect the interactive cable from the
interactive connector and a PC. Then coil them for transportation. Failure to
do these cause the cord and cable to be damaged if they are stepped on or
if they catch on something while the unit is being moved.
Replacing the
Thermal
transfer film
• 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 used
thermal transfer film with scissors or shredder before disposing of it.)
Electronic
Pen and
Electronic
Eraser
Transmitter
• Do not cover the transmitter with your hand while using an interactive
function as this may cause the position of the Electronic Pen or the
Electronic Eraser not to be normally detected.
NG
OK
• Press down firmly with the point of the Electronic Pen or the eraser cloth of
the Electronic Eraser on the screen film until you hear a buzzing sound, and
then move it slowly.
However, do not press down the point of the Electronic Pen too much
strongly as this may make a dent in the screen back panel.
• Do not use two or more the Electronic Pens or the Electronic Eraser at the
same time as this may cause the position of the Electronic Pen or the
Electronic Eraser not to be normally detected.
• For precise positioning, keep the Electronic Pen and Electronic Eraser
perpendicularly to the screen during use.
• Since ultrasonic is used to detect the position of the Electronic Pen and
Electronic Eraser when they are being used, you may hear a buzzing
sound, but this is not harmful to the human body or peripheral hardware.
It will also not result in an electric shock.
10
Precautions
Battery
If batteries are used improperly, batteries may leak, causing corrosion of the
product, or they may burst. To prevent this, always follow the precautions
given below.
• Always remove batteries from the Electronic Pen and Electronic Eraser if
they are not to be used for an extended period of time.
• Use the same type of batteries. Do not mix different types.
• Do not mix old and new batteries.
• Always insert batteries with their polarity properly oriented as indicated on
the Electronic Pen or Electronic Eraser.
• If the Electronic Pen or Electronic Eraser ceases to function because
batteries have run out, remove them immediately and dispose of them
according to local regulations.
Leaving drained batteries in the Electronic Pen or Electronic Eraser may
result in leakage.
• Do not disassemble batteries or place them in a fire.
• Do not short batteries.
• Alkaline batteries cannot be recharged. Never attempt to recharge alkaline
batteries.

Replacing Thermal Transfer Film
The unit is capable of producing about 15 more copies when the contrast / remaining film indicator begins to
flash. The unit has run out of thermal transfer film and can no longer make copies when the multi-copy / error
indicator flashes " ". Separately available replacement film (KX-BP081 or KX-BP082) may be purchased from
the dealer where you purchased the unit. Thermal transfer film is replaced as follows.
Notes on Replacing Thermal Transfer Film
• Only use the designated product (KX-BP081 or KX-BP082) from Panasonic as the replacement film.
(Note that using another type of replacement film may result in degraded printing quality or damage to
the unit.)
• Thermal transfer film is disposable. Dispose of used thermal transfer film as "burnable" or "nonrecyclable" rubbish.
• A negative of the copied image will remain on the thermal transfer film. To protect the security of your

• When using a projector to project images, be sure to display the image so that it is centred left-to-right on
the electronic print board screen and with at least a 50 mm gap between the top of the image and the
screen border. Note that the Electronic Pen does not always operate properly when within 50 mm of the
top of the screen, 100 mm of the position receiver and 35 mm from the both sides of the screen.
• Since the Electronic Pen position may shift if the image on the screen is trapezoidal, adjust the projector
so that the image on the screen is rectangular.
• When projecting an image on the electronic print board using a projector, the image on the screen may
become difficult to see depending on the viewing angle and position due to reflected projector light.
If this happens, adjust the location of the projector or change your viewing position.
• When using a projector to project a PC screen, be sure to use optimum resolution settings for the projector
and the PC. The image may be difficult to see if optimum settings are not used. Fine lines in the image on
the electronic print board screen may appear broken particularly if the projector resolution is lower than the
PC resolution.
• When using a projector to project images, the Electronic Pen position may shift if the projection position
shifts due to the following causes. If this happens, it becomes necessary to perform calibration to reposition the projected image on the screen. (For details on calibration, please see page 35.)
• When the installed location of the projector is changed.
• When the position of the electronic print board is changed.
• When the projection area and position has changed due to using a projector function such as zoom.
• When the display resolution of the projector or PC has changed.
Note that the position of an electronic print board attached to a stand may shift if it is struck carelessly.
Always make sure the stand's casters are locked in place.
• Light from the projector may enter the eye when using a projector to project images for the purpose of
making presentations and so on. Be very careful as direct projector light may hurt the eyes.

Basic operation flow in Projector mode
This section explains the flow of basic operations when using the Interactive Panaboard Software in the
Projector mode. We recommend trying the operations in accordance with the following steps to help you
completely understand the operations in the Projector mode.
• For any explanations on the operations of the Projector mode, the Electronic Pen will be referred to as
"Mouse" and the projected computer screen on the Interactive Panaboard will be referred to as "Desktop".
· Calibration
Calibration is an operation to calibrate the
position of the computer screen projected
onto the Interactive Panaboard screen to
judge the position by the Interactive
Panaboard Software.
(1) Start the Interactive Panaboard
Software and select the
Projector mode. (See page 29.)
Place the
Electronic
Pen on this
position and
depress it.
• The calibration screen is displayed.
(2) In the sequence of upper left, upper
right, lower right and lower left, press for about two seconds for centre of each four
corner position with the Electronic Pen.
• When this operation ended correctly, then the next position starts automatically.
(3) When the calibration ended correctly, there is a message telling you its finish. From
this point onward, the Electronic Pen can be used as the Mouse.
Notes
• If you move the projector or Interactive Panaboard, the position of the computer screen projected onto
the Interactive Panaboard screen will be changed. This will result in out of position of the Electronic Pen.
If this happens, you will need to recalibrate the unit by executing [Calibrate] in the pop-up menu.
• In the Projector mode, use the Electronic Pen with its cap on.
• Do not cover the position receiver with your hand as this may cause interactive function to stop
functioning.
• Press down firmly with the point of the Electronic Pen on the screen film until you hear a buzzing sound.
• For precise positioning, keep the Electronic Pen perpendicularly to the Interactive Panaboard screen
during use. Inclined pen angle will cause the shift of position.
Remark:
• If recalibration is necessary, click [Calibrate] in the pop-up menu.
35

View Window or Whiteboard Window Operation
Differences between the View window and the Whiteboard window
The View window of the Projector mode and the Whiteboard window of the Whiteboard mode are windows
which function to display and edit IPB documents in which the contents of work performed on the Interactive
Panaboard are recorded. Basically, they both have identical functions. However, the Whiteboard window has
some functions the View window does not have. If you understand the differences between the two windows
as follows, you will be able to quickly use both windows just by learning the operations of one window.

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 commercially available white board cleaner for
hard-to-clean stains. (SANFORD® EXPO ® white board
cleaner etc.)
If you accidently 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.
