IMPORTANT
Protecting the printer from condensation
To prevent condensation from forming inside the printer in the following cases, adjust the printer to the ambient
temperature and humidity for at least two hours before use.
When the room where the printer is installed is heated rapidly
When the printer is moved from a cool or dry location to a hot or humid location
If water droplets (condensation) form inside the printer, this can result in paper jams or poor print quality.
When using an ultrasonic humidifier
When you are using an ultrasonic humidifier, we therefore recommend that you use purified water or other water that is
free of impurities.
If you use tap water or well water, impurities in the water will be dispersed through the air. This can be trapped inside
the printer, causing degradation in print quality.
Precautions for the power supply
Use an AC power outlet exclusively for the printer. Do not use the other sockets of the AC power outlet.
Do not plug the power plug into the auxiliary outlet on a computer.
Do not use the same AC power outlet for both the printer and any of the following equipment.
Copy machine
Air conditioner
Shredder
Equipment that consumes a large amount of electricity
Equipment that generates electrical noise
The maximum power consumption of the printer is 868 W or less.
Electrical noise or a dramatic drop in mains voltage may cause the printer or computer to operate incorrectly or lose
data.
Do not install the printer in the following locations, as this may result in damage to the printer.
A location subject to dramatic changes in temperature or humidity
A location subject to condensation
A poorly ventilated location
(If you use the printer for a long time or to perform a large amount of printing in a poorly ventilated room, the ozone
or other odors generated by the printer may create an uncomfortable working environment. In addition, chemical
particles are dispersed during printing. Therefore, it is important to provide adequate ventilation.)
A location near equipment that generates magnetic or electromagnetic waves
A laboratory or location where chemical reactions occur
A location exposed to salt air, corrosive gases, or toxic gases
A location, such as on a carpet or mat, that may warp from the weight of the printer or where the printer is liable to
sink
Precautions when connecting the power cord
Do not plug the power plug of the printer into an auxiliary outlet on a computer.
One AC power outlet should be used exclusively for the printer.
Do not connect this printer to an uninterruptible power source.
This may cause printer malfunction or breakdown in the event of a power failure.
When turning ON the printer for the first time after the printer installation
Although a sheet of blank paper may be output, this is not an error.

Paper that is thicker or thinner than the specified usable paper
"Usable Paper"
IMPORTANT
About paper with staples, clips, ribbons or tape
This kind of paper may result in the printer malfunction or damage to the printer.
About paper that contains ink that melts, burns, evaporates or emits harmful gases at or lower
than the heating temperature of the fixing unit
This kind of paper may result in the printer malfunction or damage to the printer.
Printing on the reverse side of paper that was previously printed (Performing 2-sided printing
manually)
This printer enables you to perform 2-sided printing manually by inserting the reverse side of the paper * that was
previously printed.
When printing on the reverse side of paper that was previously printed, flatten the curl and load one sheet of paper at a
time in the multi-purpose tray, and perform the following procedure in the printer driver.
1. Display the [Paper Source] sheet.
2. Select the [Print on the Other Side] check box.
*
You can use only paper printed by this printer. Also, you cannot print on the printed side again.
㻝㻠㻞㻌㻛㻌㻟㻠㻟
Storing Paper
The quality of paper may deteriorate if stored improperly even when the paper meets the normal specifications.
Inferior paper may cause misfeeds, paper jams, or deterioration in print quality.
How to store paper
Observe the following guidelines when storing and handling paper.
Store paper on a flat surface.
To help paper avoid moisture or dryness, keep paper in its wrapper until it is ready to be used.
Do not place paper in the condition where it may curl or become creased.
Do not store paper vertically or store too many stacks of paper in one pile.
Do not store paper in the following locations.
A
A
A
A
location exposed to direct sunlight
location subject to high humidity
dry location
location with a temperature or humidity that differs significantly from the location where it will be used
If you print on damp paper
If you print on damp paper, steam may be emitted from the printer output area.
Because moisture in the paper is evaporating due to the heat generated when toner fixes, this is not a malfunction. (This is
likely to occur when the room temperature is low.)
Storing Printouts
When handling or storing paper printed by this printer, be careful of the following points.
How to store printouts
Store paper on a flat surface.
Avoid storing printouts in folders made of PVC material, as this may cause the toner to melt and stick to the PVC
material. Toner may peel when printouts are folded or creased.
Store printouts in the condition where they are not folded or creased as toner may peel.
Put printouts in a binder when storing for a long period of time (two years or longer).
Printouts may discolor when stored for a long period of time.
Avoid storing printouts in a location subject to high temperatures.
Precautions when sticking printouts with adhesive
Be sure to use insoluble adhesive.
Test the adhesive on an unneeded printout before using.
Before stacking printouts that stuck with adhesive, check that the adhesive completely dried.

Fan the paper stack thoroughly, and then align the edges before loading them. If they are not fanned enough, multiple
sheets of paper may be fed at once, causing paper jams.
When fanning or aligning coated paper, try to hold the edges to avoid touching the printing surface.
Take care not to mark or stain the printing surface of coated paper with fingerprints, dust, or oil. This may result in poor
print quality.
Printing from an application
After loading coated paper, perform printing.
