Turning Off the Main Power / In the Event of Power Failure
Turning Off the Main Power / In the Event of
Power Failure
This section describes the machine status when the power is turned off or if the
power fails.
R CAUTION:
• When you disconnect the power plug from the wall outlet, always pull the
plug (not the cable).
3
Important
❒ Do not turn off the main power switch while the operation switch indicator is
lit or blinking. If you do, the memory may be damaged and failure could result.
❒ Turn off the main power switch before pulling out the plug. If you pull out
the plug with the switch on, the memory may be damaged and failure could
result.
❒ Make sure that 100% is shown on the display before you unplug the machine.
If a lower value is shown, some data is currently present in memory.
❒ Right after a power failure, the internal battery needs to be sufficiently recharged to guard against future data loss. Keep the machine plugged in and
the main power switch on for about 5 days after the power loss.
Even if the main power switch is turned off, the contents of the machine memory
(for example, programmed numbers) will not be lost. However, if power is lost
for about twelve hours because the main power switch is turned off, there is a
power cut, or the power cord is removed, contents of the Fax memory are lost.
Lost items will include any fax documents stored in memory using Memory
Transmission/Reception, Memory Lock, or Substitute Reception.
If a file was deleted from memory, a Power Failure Report is automatically printed as soon as the power is restored.
This report can be used to identify lost files. If a document stored for Memory
Transmission was lost, resend it. If a document received by Memory Reception
or Substitute Reception was lost, ask the sender to resend it.

The original was placed upside
down.
Place the original in the correct
orientation. See “Original Orientation”, Scanner Reference.
No image results from
scanning.
The original was placed with the
front and back reversed.
When the original is placed directly on the exposure glass, the side
to be scanned must face down.
When the original is fed via the
ARDF, the side to be scanned
must face up. See “Original Orientation”, Scanner Reference.
The scanned image
contains white spaces.
If you scan originals using functions other than the network
TWAIN scanner function, certain
paper size and resolution settings
may produce scanned images
that are larger than the specified
size because of margins being
added to the sides.
Scanning at a higher resolution
may reduce the margins.

in accordance with local regulations.
R CAUTION:
• Keep toner (used or unused) and toner containers out of reach of children.
R CAUTION:
• If toner or used toner is inhaled, gargle with plenty of water and move into a
fresh air environment. Consult a doctor if necessary.
R CAUTION:
• If toner or used toner gets into your eyes, flush immediately with large
amounts of water. Consult a doctor if necessary.
R CAUTION:
• If toner or used toner is swallowed, dilute by drinking a large amount of water. Consult a doctor if necessary.

R CAUTION:
• Avoid getting toner on your clothes or skin when removing a paper jam or
replacing toner. If your skin comes into contact with toner, wash the affected
area thoroughly with soap and water.
• If toner gets on your clothing, wash with cold water. Hot water will set the
toner into the fabric and may make removing the stain impossible.
Important
❒ Fault may occur if you use toner other than the recommended type.
❒ When adding toner, do not turn off the operation switch. If you do, settings
will be lost.
❒ Add toner only when the machine instructs you to do so.
❒ When a message “Add toner.” is shown on the display panel, replace the toner.
❒ Store the toner bottles in a cool, dry place free from direct sunlight.
❒ Store on a flat surface.
❒ Do not repeatedly install and remove toner bottles. This will result in toner
