Safety Instructions

Read all of the instructions in this section when setting up and using your printer.

When choosing a place for the printer

❏ Avoid places subject to rapid changes in temperature and humidity. Also, keep the printer away from direct sunlight, strong light, or heat sources.

❏ Avoid places subject to dust, shocks, and vibrations.

❏ Leave enough room around the printer to allow for sufficient ventilation.

❏ Place the printer near a wall outlet where the plug can be easily unplugged.

❏ Place the printer on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond the printer base in all directions. If you place the printer by a wall, leave more than 10 cm between the back of the printer and the wall. The printer will not operate properly if it is tilted at an angle.

❏ When storing or transporting the printer, don't tilt it, stand it on its side or turn it upside down.

Otherwise ink may leak from the cartridge.

When choosing a power source

❏ Use only the type of power source indicated on the printer’s label.

❏ Be sure your AC power cord meets the relevant local safety standard.

❏ Do not use a damaged or frayed power cord.

❏ If you use an extension cord with the printer, make sure that the total ampere rating of the devices plugged into the extension cord does not exceed the cord’s ampere rating. Also, make sure that the total ampere rating of all devices plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed the wall outlet’s ampere rating.

❏ If you plan to use the printer in Germany, the building installation must be protected by a 10 or

16 amp circuit breaker to provide adequate short-circuit protection and over-current protection for this printer.

When handling ink cartridges

❏ Do not open the ink cartridge packages until just before you install them.

❏ Do not shake the used ink cartridges; this can cause leakage.

❏ Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children. Do not allow children to drink from or otherwise handle the cartridges.

❏ Be careful when you handle used ink cartridges, as there may be some ink remaining around the ink supply port. If ink gets on your skin, wash the area thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets into your eyes, flush them immediately with water. If discomfort or vision problems remain after a thorough flushing, see a doctor immediately.

❏ Do not touch or remove the green IC chip that is located on the side of the cartridge.

❏ Do not remove or tear the label on the cartridge; this can cause leakage.

❏ Store each ink cartridge so that the bottom of its packaging faces down.

When using the printer

❏ Do not put your hand inside the printer or touch the ink cartridges during printing.

❏ Do not block or cover the openings in the printer’s cabinet.

❏ Do not attempt to service the printer yourself.

❏ Unplug the printer and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions:

The power cord or plug is damaged; liquid has entered the printer; the printer has been dropped or the cabinet damaged; the printer does not operate normally or exhibits a distinct change in performance.

❏ Do not insert objects through the slots in the printer’s cabinet.

❏ Take care not to spill liquid on the printer.

❏ Leave the ink cartridges installed. Removing the cartridges can dehydrate the printer head and may prevent the printer from printing.

When using the Automatic Roll Paper Cutter

❏ Keep the cutter out of the reach of children.

❏ Do not touch the paper ejection part and cutter blade.

❏ Do not place the cutter on an unstable surface (such as on an unstable table or a tilted surface).

❏ Do not disassemble or modify the cutter.
