Safety Precautions

Choosing a location

  • Do not install the printer in a location that is unstable or subject to excessive vibration.
  • Do not install the printer in locations that are very humid or dusty, in direct sunlight, outdoors, or close to a heating source.
    To avoid the risk of fire or electric shocks, use the printer under the operating environment specified in the Specifications.
  • Do not place the printer on a thick rug or carpet.
  • Do not place the printer with its back attached to the wall.

Power Supply

  • Ensure that the area around the power outlet is kept clear at all times so you can easily unplug the power cord if necessary.
  • Never remove the plug by pulling on the cord.
    Pulling the cord may damage the power cord, leading to possible fire or electrical shock.
  • Do not use an extension lead/cord.

Working Around the Printer

  • Never put your hands or fingers in the printer while it is printing.
  • When moving the printer, carry the printer at both ends. In case the printer weighs more than 14 kg, it is recommended to have two people lifting the printer. Accidental dropping of the printer may cause injury. For the printer's weight, refer to the Specifications.
  • Do not transport or use the printer on a slant, vertically or upside-down, as the ink may leak and damage the printer.
  • Do not place any object on the printer. Especially do not place metal objects (paper clips, staples, etc.) or containers of flammable solvents (alcohol, thinners, etc.) on top of the printer.
  • When loading a thick book on the platen glass, do not press hard on the Document Cover. The platen glass may break and cause injury.

Print heads (cartridges)/Ink Bottles

  • Keep ink bottles out of the reach of children. In case ink is accidentally licked or swallowed, rinse out mouth or give one or two glasses of water to drink. If irritation or discomfort occurs, obtain medical advice immediately.
  • In case ink gets in contact with eyes, rinse with water immediately. In case ink gets in contact with skin, wash with soap and water immediately. If irritation to eyes or skin persists, obtain medical advice immediately.
  • Never touch the electrical contacts on print heads (cartridges) after printing.
    The metal parts may be very hot and could cause burns.
  • Do not throw print heads (cartridges) and ink bottles into fire.
  • Do not attempt to disassemble or modify print heads (cartridges) and ink bottles.
