CAUTION
Do not install the machine on an unstable or
slanted surface. Install the machine on a surface
that can withstand the weight of the machine.
Risk of injury due to the machine falling or toppling.
If peripheral devices are to be installed, do not
install on an uneven floor, slanted surface, or
otherwise unstable surface. Danger of slippage,
falling, and toppling. Install the product on a flat,
stable surface that can withstand the weight of the
product. (Weight when various peripheral devices
are installed: approx. 718 lbs. (326 kg))
Do not install in a location with moisture or
dust.
Risk of fire and electrical shock.
If dust enters the machine, dirty
output and machine failure may
result.
Locations that are excessively hot, cold, humid,
or dry (near heaters, humidifiers, air
conditioners, etc.)
When the machine is installed, the adjusters (4)
must be lowered to the floor to secure the
machine (prevent it from moving).
Rotate the adjusters in the locking direction until
they are in firm contact with the floor.
If you find it necessary to reposition the
machine due to rearrangement of your office
layout or other reason, retract the adjusters
from the floor, turn off
the power, and then
move the machine.
(After moving the
Adjuster
machine, lower the

Lock
the machine.)
Release
Locations exposed to direct
sunlight
Plastic parts may
become deformed
and dirty output may
result.
Locations with ammonia gas
Installing the machine next to a
diazo copy machine may cause
dirty output.
The paper will become damp and condensation
may form inside the machine, causing misfeeds and
dirty output.
☞ Ambient environment (page 45)
If the location has an ultrasonic humidifier, use pure
water for humidifiers in the humidifier. If tap water is
used, minerals and other impurities will be emitted,
causing impurities to collect on the inside of the
machine and create dirty output.

CAUTIONS
Installation notes (continued)
CAUTION
Do not install the machine in a location with
poor ventilation. Install so that exhaust from the
machine does not directly contact people.
A small amount of ozone is produced within the
printer during operation. The emission level is
insufficient to cause any health hazard.
The present recommended long term exposure limit
for ozone is 0.1 ppm (0.2 mg/m3) calculated as an 8
hr. time-weighted average concentration.
However, since the small amount that is emitted
may have an objectionable odor, it is advisable to
place the copier in a ventilated area.
Near a wall
Be sure to allow the required space around the
machine for servicing and proper ventilation. (The
machine should be no closer than the distances
indicated below from walls. The indicated distances
are for the case when a saddle finisher and large
capacity paper tray are not installed.)
11-13/16"
(30cm)
11-13/16"
(30cm)
17-23/32"
(45cm)
Locations subject to vibration.
A small amount of ozone is created inside the
machine during printing. The amount of ozone
created is not sufficient to be harmful; however, an
unpleasant odor may be noticed during large copy
runs, and thus the machine should be installed in a
room with a ventilation fan or windows that provide
sufficient air circulation. (The odor may occasionally
cause headaches.)
* Install the machine so that people are not directly
exposed to exhaust from the machine. If installed
near a window, ensure that the machine is not
exposed to direct sunlight.
Vibration may cause failure.
The machine includes a built-in hard drive. Do not subject the machine to shock or vibration. In particular, never
move the machine while the power is on.
• The machine should be installed near an accessible power outlet for easy connection.
• Connect the machine to a power outlet which is not used for other electric appliances. If a lighting fixture is connected to the
same outlet, the light may flicker.
About consumables
CAUTION
Do not throw a toner cartridge into a fire.
Toner may fly and cause burns.

PLACING ORIGINALS
The automatic document feeder can be used to automatically scan many originals at once. This saves you the trouble of
manually feeding each original.
For originals that cannot be scanned using the automatic document feeder, such as a book or a document with notes
attached, use the document glass.
Using the automatic document feeder
When using the automatic document feeder, place the originals in the document feeder tray.
Make sure an original has not been placed on the document glass.
Place the originals face up with the edges
aligned evenly.
Adjust the original guides
to the width of the originals.
The indicator line indicates approximately
how many originals can be placed. The placed
originals must not be higher than this line.
Using the document glass
Take care that your fingers are not pinched when closing the automatic document feeder.
After placing the original, be sure to close the automatic document feeder. If left open, parts outside of the original will be
copied black, causing excessive use of toner.
Place the original face down.
To place a thick original such as
a book, push up the far edge of
the automatic document feeder
and then close the automatic
document feeder slowly.
Align the top left corner of the
original with the tip of the
mark in the far left corner of the
glass.
Place the original
face down.

SUPPLIES
Standard supplies for this product that can replaced by the user include paper, toner cartridges, and staple cartridges for
the finisher.
Be sure to use only SHARP-specified products for the toner cartridges, finisher staple cartridge, saddle stitch finisher
staple cartridge, and transparency film.
For best copying results, be sure to use only Sharp Genuine Supplies which are designed,
engineered, and tested to maximize the life and performance of Sharp products. Look for the
