Power Source
The following are the power source requirements for this printer.
l
l
l
Power source: 220 - 240 V at 50 - 60 Hz
Voltage fluctuation: Within 220 - 240 V ±10%
Frequency fluctuation: Within ±0.3%
NOTE
Í
Í
Í
Í
Í
Í
Í
Use a power source with minimal voltage and frequency fluctuation.
Only use an outlet that is rated for the voltage capacity specified for
this printer.
Be sure to plug the power cord all the way into the outlet. The outlet
should be located near the printer and be easily accessible so you can
unplug the power cord immediately if necessary.
Make sure the outlet you use is visible, and not hidden behind the
printer or any other object.
If any other electrical equipment is plugged into the same outlet, make
sure that the capacity of the outlet is not exceeded.
If you use an extension cord, make sure its capacity is greater than the
power consumption of the printer. Using an extension cord with a
lower capacity creates the danger of fire.
Never use a multiple socket to connect other appliances or machines
to the same outlet being used to power the printer.
Grounding
Always ground the printer to guard against the danger of electrical shock.
To ground the printer, connect the grounding wire to the ground terminal
of the electrical outlet you are plugging into or to a grounding contact that
complies with local electrical standards in your area.
NOTE
Í
2-2
Never connect the grounding wire to a gas pipe, the grounding wire for
a telephone, or to a water pipe.

2-4
Never turn the printer off or open any of its covers during a print
operation.
Never place flammable gasses, liquids or objects that generate
magnetic forces near the printer.
When unplugging the power cord, always grasp the plug and never
pull on the cord. A damaged cord creates the danger of fire or
electrical shock.
Never touch the power cord when your hands are wet. Doing so
creates the danger of electrical shock.
Always unplug the power cord before moving the printer. Failure to do
so can damage the power cord, creating the danger of fire or electrical
shock.
Always unplug the power cord if you do not plan to use the printer for
a long time.
Never try to remove any secured panel or cover. The interior of the
printer contains high-voltage circuitry which creates the danger of
electrical shock when exposed.
Never try to modify the printer. Doing so creates the danger of fire or
electrical shock.
Never place any heavy objects on the power cord, pull on it or bend it.
Doing so creates the danger of fire or electrical shock.
Always make sure the printer is not placed on the electrical cord or the
communications cables of any other electrical equipment. Also make
sure that cords and cables do not get into the printer’s mechanism.
Any of these conditions create the danger of malfunction and fire.
Always take care so that paper clips, staples, or other small pieces of
metal do not get into the printer through its vents or other openings.
Such objects create the danger of fire or electrical shock.

Do not allow water or other liquids to spill on or near the printer. Fire
or electrical shock can occur should water or liquid come into contact
with the printer.
Should liquid or any piece of metal accidently get inside the printer,
immediately turn it off, unplug the power cord, and contact your dealer.
Failure to take this immediate action creates the danger of fire or
electrical shock.
Whenever the printer emits unusually high amounts of heat, smoke,
an unusual odor, or noise, immediately turn it off, unplug it, and contact
your dealer. Failure to take this immediate action creates the danger
of fire or electrical shock.
NOTE
Í
Be sure to locate the printer in a well-ventilated location. A minimal
amount of ozone is generated during normal operation of this printer.
Because of this, an unpleasant odor may result when the printer is
used for extensive printing in a poorly ventilated area. For comfortable,
and safe operation, be sure to locate the printer in a well-ventilated
area.

Options
This section describes the optional items that are available for this printer:
Memory SIMM(s), Duplex Unit, Second Paper Cassette Unit, Third Paper
Cassette Unit, and the Network Interface Card.
SIMM (Single In-line Memory Module)
Many errors caused by data overload can be avoided by installing
additional memory into the printer.
This printer comes with 2 MB of memory. You can increase memory
capacity to up to 16 MB by installing an optional 8 or 16 MB SIMM into the
memory connector located inside of the printer.
NOTE
Í
Í
2-14
Memory capacity can be increased to 16 MB by installing a 16 MB
SIMM into the printer. The successful installation of the expansion
memory can be confirmed by displaying the Printer Information in the
Printer Status Display. For details, see page 4-53 “Displaying Printer
Information...”.
Installation of an optional SIMM will increase the memory capacity of
your printer. However, the memory of the optional SIMM will not be
combined with the initial 2 MB that came with the printer.

Loading Paper
There are two primary sources that can be used to feed paper into the
printer: Tray 1 and the manual feed tray.
Tray 1 is the standard source for supplying paper to the printer. Various
types and sizes of paper can be fed from this tray.
Tray 2/Tray 3 are available as optional paper sources. See the section of
this User’s Manual entitled “Loading Paper onto Tray 2/Tray 3” for details
on using these trays.
Always remember that paper storage conditions greatly affect print
quality. Store paper in its original package. Keep paper out of areas
subject to extreme temperatures or humidity.
Loading Paper onto Tray 1
You can load up to 250 sheets of standard paper onto Tray 1. For details,

Use of a poor quality parallel cable may adversely affect input.
In order to achieve the best results for your printed documents, your
computer should be equipped with at least 16 MB (Windows 95/98), or
32 MB (Windows NT 4.0) of RAM. Additional RAM beyond the
recommended 32 MB (Windows 95/98), or 64 MB (Windows NT 4.0),
will allow your printer to provide you with the high standards of
performance for which it was designed. If your computer’s current
memory capacity is less than 16 MB (Windows 95/98), or 32 MB
(Windows NT 4.0), the installation of additional memory is highly
recommended.

a good idea to select this option to ensure optimum printing results.
Instructions for installing the PostScript Driver (ZScript) are provided

Replacing the Imaging Cartridge
The imaging cartridge contains the print drum and a supply of toner. If you
print typical business A4 size pages with 5% coverage of toner, the
imaging cartridge lasts for approximately 9,000 pages. However, the life
of the imaging cartridge varies with the actual density of toner that is used.
l
l
When the imaging cartridge begins
to run short of toner, “Imaging
Cartridge Low” message is
displayed in the Status Display.
Remove the imaging cartridge,
shake it several times, and reload it
into the printer (this will evenly
distribute the toner remaining in the
cartridge). Prepare a new imaging
cartridge as a replacement.
When the imaging cartridge runs
out of toner, “Imaging Cartridge
Empty” message is displayed in the
Status Display. It is recommended
that you change the imaging
cartridge as soon as possible.
Imaging Cartridge Low
Imaging Cartridge Empty
NOTE
Í
Í
The Imaging Cartrige Low message
appears in the Warning Status
window of the Status Display as a reminder that the imaging cartridge
will run out of toner soon. Since print quality will decline after the
Imaging Cartridge Low message appears, replacement with a new
imaging cartridge is recommended when the Imaging Cartridge Low
message is displayed.
The imaging cartridge that comes with the printer is capable of
producing approximately 5,000 A4-size prints.

No output
Failure to produce output may indicate a communications problem
between the printer and your computer. Check the following points to see
if you can correct the problem. If problems persist, contact your dealer.
Are you using the correct type of printer cable?
Save the data you are trying to print and close all the applications currently
open on your computer. Next, reset your computer to send a break signal
to the printer. Now check your printer cable against the specifications in
Chapter “Specifications” of this User’s Manual.
NOTE
Í
When connecting your computer to the parallel connector on the
printer, we recommend using an IEEE1284/ ECP/ EPP/ compatible
parallel interface cable (1.5 m long).
Are your computer’s communications port settings correct?
Refer to the documentation that comes with your computer and check if
its current communications port settings are correct.
