  • Page 8 Never handle the equipment in the following manners, as it may break, become out of order, or overheat causing smoke and resulting in fire or electric shock. If the equipment is used in an abnormal condition, such as when broken, then problems, smoke emission, abnormal odor/noise, and fire can result.
  • Page 9: Precautions For Installation

    There is a danger of fire or electric shock. • Do not put any object on the printer. It may cause trouble. • Do not use the equipment near a radio or TV receiver. Do not share the power from a plug socket a radio or TV receiver is connected to.
  • Page 10: Precautions For Handling

    • Never use a pointed object, such as a pen, to operate the operation panel. • Do not use Scotch tape to fasten paper together for continuous use. • Never pull the set paper forcibly. When opening/closing the printer cover, take care that the paper will not be caught.
  • Page 11: Daily Maintenance

    • Prior to starting maintenance work, be sure to turn off the main body. • Use a dry soft cloth to wipe off stains and dust from the surfaces of the main body case. For severe soiling, dip the cloth in water and wring it, for wiping off the soil. Never use organic solvents, such as alcohol, thinner, trichlene, benzene, ketone, or chemical dusters.
