Paper Recommendations
Paper Recommendations
Loading Paper
Important
❒ Do not use ink-jet printer paper because it may stick to the fusing unit and
cause a paper misfeed.
❒ When printing on OHP transparencies that have a print side, load them with
the print side over on the bypass tray. Not taking this precaution may cause
them to stick to the fusing unit and cause misfeeds.
❒ Set the paper as described below
• Tray 1/2: Print side facing up
• Bypass Tray: Print side facing down
• Paper Feed Unit: Print side facing up
❒ Print quality cannot be guaranteed if paper other than the ones recommended
is used. For more information about recommended paper, contact your sales
or service representative.
❒ Do not use paper that has already been printed onto by other printers.
5
Storing Paper
• Paper should always be stored properly. Improperly stored paper might result in poor print quality, paper misfeeds, or printer damage. Recommendations are as follows:
• Avoid storing paper in humid areas.
• Avoid exposing paper to direct sunlight.
• Store on a flat surface.
• Keep paper in the package in which the paper came.

Replacing the Toner Cartridge
R WARNING:
• Do not incinerate spilled toner or used toner. Toner dust is flammable
and might ignite when exposed to an open flame.
• Do not store toner, used toner, or toner containers in a place with an
open flame. The toner might ignite and cause burns or a fire.
R CAUTION:
• Keep toner (used or unused) and the toner cartridge out of reach of children.
• If toner or used toner is inhaled, gargle with plenty of water and move into
a fresh air environment. Consult a doctor if necessary.
• If your skin comes into contact with toner or used toner, wash the affected
area thoroughly with soap and water.
• If toner or used toner gets into your eyes, flush immediately with large
amounts of water. Consult a doctor if necessary.
• Disposal should take place at an authorized dealer or an appropriate collection site.
• If you dispose of the used toner cartridges yourself, dispose of them according to local regulations.
R CAUTION:
• If toner or used toner is swallowed, dilute by drinking a large amount of water. Consult a doctor if necessary.
• 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
❒ When handling toner cartridges, never stand them up on either end or position them upside down.
❒ Store toner cartridges in a cool dark place.
❒ Actual printable numbers vary depending on image volume and density,
number of pages printed at a time, paper type and size, and environmental
conditions such as temperature and humidity. Toner quality degrades over
time. You may have to replace the toner cartridge prematurely. We recommend you prepare a new toner cartridge beforehand.
87

Checking the port connection
When the printer is directly connected via the PC cable and the data-in indicator
does not flash or light up, the method of checking the port connection is as follows.
• For a parallel port connection, port LPT 1 or LPT 2 should be set.
• For a USB port connection, port USB00 (n) *1 should be set.
*1
(n) is the number of printers connected.

It takes too much time to turn on
the printer.
If the printer is turned off while it is still accessing the hard
disk (for example: during file deletion), the printer will require more time to power-up the next time it is turned on. To
avoid this time delay, do not turn the power off while it is in
operation.

• If OHP transparencies is being used, printing takes more
time to start.
• The printer was in the Energy Saver mode. To resume
from the Energy Saver mode, the printer has to warm up,
and this takes time until printing starts. To disable the Energy Saver mode, select [Off] for [Energy Saver] in the System menu.
It takes too much time to complete the print job.
• Photographs and other data intensive pages take a long

performed with PDF Direct
Print.
When using PDF Direct Print, printout requires paper set
within the PDF file. When a message indicating a paper size
appears, either place the indicated size in the paper tray, or
perform Form Feed.
Also, if [Sub Paper Size] in the System Menu is set to [Auto],
printing is performed assuming letter size and A4 size to be
the same size. For example, When a PDF file set to A4 size paper is printed using PDF Direct Print and letter size paper is
installed in the paper tray, the file will print out. This applies
similarly to the opposite case.

An error message appears if a paper misfeed occurs. The error message gives the
location of the misfeed.
R CAUTION:
• The inside of the machine becomes very hot. Do not touch the parts with a
“v” label (means hot surface). Touching a part with a “v” label (means hot
surface) could result in a burn.
R CAUTION:
• When pulling the paper tray out, be careful not to pull it strongly. If you do,
the tray might fall and cause an injury.
Important
❒ Misfed paper may be covered in toner. Be careful not to get toner on your
hands or clothes.
❒ Toner on prints made after removing misfed paper may be loose (inadequately fused). Make a few test prints until smudges no longer appear.
❒ Do not forcefully remove misfed paper, it will tear. Torn pieces remaining inside the printer will cause further misfeeds and possibly damage the printer.

Moving and Transporting the Printer
R CAUTION:
• When moving the machine, each person should hold the handles that are
located on opposite sides, and then lift it slowly. Lifting it carelessly or dropping it may cause an injury.
• When you move the printer, remember to unplug the power cord from the
wall outlet to avoid a fire or an electric shock.
• When you pull out the plug from the socket, grip the plug, not the cord, to
avoid damaging the cord and causing a fire or an electric shock.
Repack the printer in its original packing materials for transporting.
Note
❒ The printer weighs approximately 63 kg (138.9 lb.).
Important
❒ Be sure to disconnect all cables from the printer before transporting it.
❒ The printer is a precision piece of machinery. Take care to avoid damage during shipment.

Appendix
Moving the Printer
R CAUTION:
• When lifting the machine, use the inset grips on both sides. Otherwise the
printer could break or cause an injury if dropped.
• Before moving the machine, unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. If
the cord is unplugged abruptly, it could become damaged. Damaged plugs
or cords can cause an electrical or fire hazard.
Moving the printer in a short distance
A Be sure to check the following points:
• The power switch is turned off.
• The power cable is unplugged from the wall outlet.
• The interface cable is unplugged from the printer.
B If the external options are installed, remove them.
C Lift the printer with two people by using the inset grips on both side of the
printer, and then move it horizontally to the place where you want to install
it.
D If you removed options, reinstall them.
Note
❒ Be sure to move the printer horizontally. To prevent toner from scattering,
move the printer slowly.
❒ If the optional paper feed unit is installed, remove it from the printer, and
then move them separately.
