    Safety Precautions Power Supply CAUTION: 1. As a general rule, do not use extension cords. Using an extension cord may result in a fire or electrical shock. If an extension cord must be used, however, use one for local rated voltage and over, untie the cord binding, and insert the power plug completely into the extension cord outlet to ensure a firm connection between the power cord and the extension cord.
  • Page 9 Safety Precautions In the case of a screw hole with a triangle mark near it as shown in the figure below, strongly tightening the screw may damage or deform the screw hole. In the case of a screw hole with a triangle mark, take care not to apply too much force when tightening the screw. The recommended torque value is shown below as a reference value.

  • Page 35: Staple Operation

    2. Technical Explanation Staple Operation ■ Outline In staple operation, the specified number of sheets of paper is stapled by the stapler unit. The staple position varies depending on the staple mode and paper size. The stapler unit's home position is detected by the stapler shift HP sensor (PS11). After power ON, the finisher controller PCB drives the stapler shift motor (M7) to return the stapler unit to the home position.
  • Page 36: Staple-Free Staple Operation

    2. Technical Explanation If the staple setting exceeds the stapling capacity (small size: 50sheets, large size: 30 sheets) that can be bound, divided delivery is performed.
