Safety precautions

To use the printer safely

If you DO NOT follow these safety instructions, there is a possibility of a fire, electrical shock, burn or suffocation. Please keep these instructions for later reference and read them before attempting any maintenance.
There are high voltage electrodes inside the printer. Before you clean the inside of the printer or replace parts, make sure that you have turned off the power switch and unplugged the printer from the AC power outlet.
DO NOT handle the plug with wet hands. Doing this might cause an electrical shock.
Always make sure the plug is fully inserted.
This product must be installed near an AC power outlet that is easily accessible. In case of an emergency, you must disconnect the power cord from the AC power outlet to shut off the power completely.
Lightning and power surges can damage this product! We recommend that you use a quality surge protection device on the AC power outlet, or unplug the cords during a lightning storm.
Use the printer within the recommended power range.
Power source:
AC 220 to 240 V, 50/60 Hz
The power cord, including extensions, should be no longer than 5 meters (16.5 feet).
Do not share the same power circuit with other high-powered appliances, such as an air conditioner, copier, shredder and so on. If you cannot avoid using the printer with these appliances, we recommend that you use a voltage transformer or a high-frequency noise filter.
Use a voltage regulator if the power source is not stable.
Avoid using this product during an electrical storm. There may be a remote risk of electric shock from lightning.
Use only the power cord provided with the machine.
Plastic bags are used in the packaging. To avoid danger of suffocation, keep these bags away from babies and children.
DO NOT use flammable substances, any type of spray or any organic solvent/liquids contains alcohol or ammonia to clean the inside or outside of the machine. Doing this may cause a fire or electrical shock. Refer to Cleaning for how to clean the machine.
DO NOT use a vacuum cleaner to clean up scattered toner. Doing this might cause the toner dust to ignite inside the vacuum cleaner, potentially starting a fire. Carefully clean the toner dust with a dry, lint-free cloth and dispose of it according to local regulations.
Cleaning the outside of the printer:
Make sure that you have unplugged the printer from the AC power outlet.
Use neutral detergents. Cleaning with volatile liquids such as thinner or benzine will damage the outside surface of the printer.
