Precautions On safety Operate the printer on 120 V AC, 60 Hz (for
the US model) or 220 to 240 V AC, 50/60 Hz (for the models for other areas) only.
Be careful not to set or drop any heavy objects on the power cord, or to damage the power cord in any way. Never operate this printer with a damaged power cord.
Should any solid object or liquid fall into the cabinet, unplug the printer and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further.
Never disassemble the printer. To disconnect the power cord, pull it out by
the plug. Never pull the power cord itself. When the printer is not going to be used for
an extended period of time, disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet.
Do not handle the printer roughly. To reduce the risk of electrical shock,
always unplug the printer from the electrical outlet before cleaning and servicing the printer.
On installation Avoid placing the printer in a location
subject to: vibration high humidity excessive dust direct sunlight extremely high or low temperatures
Do not use electrical equipment near the printer. The printer will not work properly in electromagnetic fields.
The printer is designed to operate horizontally. Never attempt to operate the printer in a tilted position.
Do not place heavy objects on the printer. Leave enough room around the printer so
that the ventilation holes are not blocked. Blocking these holes may cause internal heat build-up.
On moisture condensation If the printer is brought directly from a cold location to warm location or placed in an extremely warm or humid room, moisture may condense inside the unit. In such cases the printer will probably not work properly and may even develop a fault if you persist in using it. If moisture condensation occurs, turn off the power and do not use the printer for at least one hour.
On transport When you transport the printer, remove the print cartridge, paper tray, the Memory Stick or PC card from the printer and put the printer and its peripherals in the original box with the protective packaging. If you no longer have the original box and packing parts, use similar packing material so that the printer will not be damaged while transporting.
On cleaning Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft dry cloth, or a soft cloth lightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use any type of solvent, such as alcohol or benzine, which may damage the finish.
On restrictions on duplication If duplicating documents with the printer, pay special attention to the following: Duplication of banknotes, coins, or
securities is against the law. Duplication of blank certificates, licenses,
passports, private securities, or unused postal stamps is also against the law.

On Memory Stick There are two types of Memory Stick: general Memory Stick and MagicGate Memory Stick. The MagicGate Memory Stick is equipped with the MagicGate copyright protection technology that uses encryption technology. You can use both types of Memory Stick with your printer. However, because the printer does not support the MagicGate standards, data recorded with the printer is not subject to MagicGate copyright protection.
To protect Memory Stick images To prevent accidental erasure of important image data, slide the write protect switch on the Memory Stick to the write protect position when you just view the images. Only when you write, delete data, or format a Memory Stick, slide it to the write enable position.
