Working safely with your laser printer
Notes on your safety and operating safety
Working improperly with the printer can result in health hazards and
electric shocks, and may even cause fires. Before you unpack the laser
printer, you should make yourself familiar with this information regarding
your safety and operating safety.
CAUTION
Observe the following information:
Ü
Make sure that the power cable is correctly plugged into the socket
and that the socket is at all times visible and readily accessible.
Ü
Do not pull the cable of the power plug as this may damage the cable.
The result could be an electric shock or a fire.
Ü
Remove the power plug from the socket if the machine will not be used
for an extended period of time.
Ü
Do not remove the power cable from the socket with wet hands as this
may result in an electric shock.
Ü
Do not move the unit unless the power cable has been removed from
the socket. Otherwise, you may damage the cable. The result could be
a short-circuit or a fire.
Ü
Do not place any heavy objects on the power cable. Do not pull or kink
the cable as this can result in damage to the cable. The result could
be an electric shock or a fire.
Ü
Make sure that the machine is not standing on a cable connected to
another machine as this can result in damage to that cable. The result
could be a fire or improper functioning of the unit in question.
Ü
Make sure that the power supply to the unit has the correct voltage.
Otherwise, the result could be a fire or an electric shock.
Ü
Switch off the unit immediately and unplug the power cable if the
power supply cable is damaged. Failure to do so could result in a fire
or an electric shock. Contact your customer support technical
specialist.
Ü
Use only extension cables that are designed for at least the maximum
power rating of the machine. Extension cables with lower ratings can
result in overheating and can even cause a fire.

Introduction
Ü
Perform only the procedures that are described in this manual. Using
the machine improperly can result in a fire or an electric shock.
Ü
Do not place any heavy objects on the machine.
Ü
Do not open any covers on the machine while printing is in progress.
Ü
Do not switch off the unit while printing is in progress.
Ü
Do not place any magnetic object near the machine.
Ü
Do not use any flammable sprays, liquids, or gases in the vicinity of the
machine.
Ü
Do not remove any safety devices and do not alter the construction of
the machine. The unit is equipped with high-voltage components.
Using the machine improperly can result in a fire or an electric shock.
Ü
Do not insert any paper clips, staples or other small metal objects into
openings on the machine. The result could be an electric shock or a
fire. If metal pieces are fed into the machine, switch it off immediately,
disconnect the power cable and contact your customer support
technical specialist.
Ü
Do not place coffee cups, drink bottles, or other containers with liquids
in them on the machine. If liquid enters the machine, the result could
be an electric shock or a fire. If liquid does get into the machine, switch
it off immediately, disconnect the power cable and contact your
customer support technical specialist.
Ü
If the machine becomes unusually hot, or if you notice smoke or an
unusual odor coming from the machine, switch it off immediately and
remove the power cable from the socket. Contact your customer
support technical specialist.

Introduction
Laser safety
This printer is equipped with a laser unit. If the printer is used in
accordance with the instructions in the Online User’s Manual, the laser
presents no danger.
The radiation emitted is completely absorbed and attenuated by the case.
The laser radiation cannot escape at any time during the printing process.
This printer is certified as a Class I Laser product under the US
Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Radiation
Performance Standard according to the Radiation Control for Health and
Safety Act of 1968. This means that the printer does not produce
hazardous laser radiation.
Internal laser radiation
Average radiation output:
1.03 mW at the laser aperture of the print head unit.
Wavelength: 770-810 n
This device works with a laser diode of class 3b with invisible laser
radiation. The laser diode and the polygon mirror for sampling are
integrated into the laser unit.
The laser unit is NOT AN ITEM TO BE MAINTAINED ON SITE. You
should therefore not open it under any circumstance.
CAUTION
Dangerous laser radiation!
Using the printer in a manner other than indicated in this manual may
result in exposure to dangerous radiation.
Ü
Use the printer only according to the instructions contained in this
guide and in the Online User’s Manual.

Introduction
CDRH regulations
On 2 August 1976 the Center for Devices and Radiological Health
(CDRH), part of the US Food and Drug Administration, introduced
specifications for all products that operate with laser beams. Products
which are to be sold or used in the USA must comply with these statutory
requirements without exception. The safety label shown confirms
compliance with the CDRH regulations. This label must be attached to all
products sold or used in the USA.
Laser safety label
DANGER
Use the printer only as described in this manual!
Using the controls, adjusting the printer or performing procedures other
than specified in this manual may result in exposure to hazardous
radiation.
Ü
1-6
Use the printer only according to the instructions contained in this
guide and in the Online User’s Manual.

Introduction
Laser caution label
CAUTION
Dangerous laser radiation!
This is a semiconductor laser. The maximum power of the laser diode is
5 mW and the wavelength is 770–810 nm.
Ü
Use the printer only according to the instructions contained in this
Guide and in the Online User’s Manual.
Ozone emission
Small quantities of ozone escape during the printing process. These
quantities do not represent a health hazard. In spite of this, you should
take care that the area in which the machine is located has adequate
ventilation, especially when you are printing large quantities of materials
or when the machine is being used continuously over a long period of
time.

Connecting the power cable
Only use the power cable supplied with the printer.
The laser printer requires a power supply with minimal voltage and
frequency fluctuation. If necessary, ask an electrician for advice.
4
Power supply: 120-127 V at 50-60 Hz / 220-240 V at 50-60 Hz
4
Voltage fluctuation: 120V -10%, 127 V +6% / 220-240 V ±10%
4
Frequency fluctuation: Within 3 Hz
1
Make certain that the printer's
power switch is in the “0” (OFF)
position.
2
Insert the plug on the end of the
power cable (supplied) into the
power socket of the printer.
3
Insert the other end of the power cable into a power socket.
CAUTION
Using the wrong power cable may cause a short-circuit!
Using power cables of inadequate cross-section can lead to overheating
of the cable.
Ü
Only use an extension cable which has a higher rating than the current
consumption of the printer.
Ü
Only use cables with a ground connection.
Ü
Always observe the relevant local regulations regarding the
connection of electrical equipment to the main power.

Switching the printer on
CAUTION
Improper handling may result in damage to the printer!
Ü Never switch off the printer while a print job is in progress, the printer
is receiving data from the computer (flashing “Ready” indicator on the
control panel) or the printer is being reset.
1
Switch the power switch to “I”(ON).
The printer is ready for use after approximately 23 seconds.
.
Saving energy makes sense!
After the printer has not received a print command for approximately
15 minutes, it automatically switches to POWER SAVE mode. If the
printer receives a new print job while it is in Power Save mode, or if the
top cover is opened, or if the control button is pressed, the printer
automatically starts its warm-up phase.
