AL-1555 UNPACKING AND INSTALLATION 5 - 1
[5] UNPACKING AND INSTALLATION
1. Copier installation
Improper installation may damage the copier. Please note the following
during initial installation and whenever the copier is moved.
Caution: If the copier is moved from a cool place to a warm place, con-
densation may form inside the copier. Operation in this condi-
tion will cause poor copy quality and malfunctions.
Leave the copier at room temperature for at least 2 hours
before use.
Do not install your copier in areas that are:
• damp, humid, or very dusty
• exposed to direct sunlight
• poorly ventilated
• subject to extreme temperature or humidity changes, e.g., near an
air conditioner or heater.
The copier should be installed near an accessible power outlet for easy
connection.
Be sure to connect the power cord only to a power outlet that meets
the specified voltage and current requirements.
Also make certain the outlet is properly grounded.
Be sure to allow the required space around the machine for servicing
and proper ventilation.
2. Cautions on handling
Be careful in handling the copier as follows to maintain the perfor-
mance of this copier.
Do not drop the copier, subject it to shock or strike it against any
object.
Do not expose the drum cartridge to direct sunlight.
Doing so will damage the surface (green portion) of the drum cartridge,
causing poor print quality.
Store spare supplies such as drum cartridges and TD cartridges in a
dark place without removing from the package before use.
If they are exposed to direct sunlight, poor print quality may result.
Do not touch the surface (green portion) of the drum cartridge.
Doing so will damage the surface of the cartridge, causing poor print
quality.
3. Checking packed components and 
accessories
Open the carton and check if the following components and accesso-
ries are included.

4. Unpacking
Be sure to hold the handles on both sides of the copier to unpack the
copier and carry it to the installation location.
5. Removing protective packing materials
1) Remove pieces of tape and protective cover. Then open the origi-
nal cover and remove protective materials (a) and (b).
2) Release the scan head locking switch.
6. Installing the TD cartridge
The TD cartridge replacement required (
) indicator will light up
when toner is needed. If copying is continued while the 
 indicator is
lit, copies will gradually become lighter until the copier stops and the
indicator begins blinking. Replace the old TD cartridge by following the
procedure given below.
Note:
• After the copier stops, it may be possible to make a few more copies
by taking the TD cartridge out of the copier, shaking it horizontally,
then reinstalling it. If copying is not possible after this operation,
replace the TD cartridge.
• During long copy run of a dark original, the ready (
) indicator may
blink, the 
 indicator may light up, and the copier may stop, even
though toner cartridge is not empty. The copier will feed toner up to 2
minutes and then the ready (
) indicator will light up. Press the
print (
) key to restart copying.
1) Ensure that the bypass tray is open and then open the side cover
by pressing the open button on the side cover.
2) Remove the CAUTION tape from the front cover and remove the
two protective pins from the fusing unit by pulling the strings
upward one at a time.
3) Push gently on both sides of the front cover to open the cover.
4) Remove the TD cartridge from the bag. Remove the protective
paper. Hold the cartridge on both sides and shake it horizontally
four or five times.

cover.
6) Gently insert the TD cartridge until it locks in place.
7) Close the front cover and then the side cover by pressing the
round projections near the side cover open button. The 
 indica-
tor will go out and the ready ( 
 ) indicator will light up.
Note: When closing the covers, be sure to close the front cover
securely and then close the side cover. If the covers are closed
in the wrong order, the covers may be damaged.
7. Loading copy paper
Note: This copier is equipped with two paper trays. Load copy paper
into the two paper trays.
1) Raise the handle of the paper tray and pull the paper tray out until
it stops.
2) Remove the pressure plate lock. Rotate the pressure plate lock in
the direction of the arrow to remove it while pressing down the
pressure plate of the paper tray.
3) Store the pressure plate lock that was removed in step 2 and the
screw that was removed when unpacking the machine in the front
of the paper tray. To store the pressure plate lock, rotate the lock
to fix it on the relevant location.
4) Adjust the paper guides on the paper tray to the copy paper width
and length.
Squeeze the lever of paper guide (A) and slide the guide to match
with the width of the paper.
Move paper guide (B) to the appropriate slot as marked on the
tray.
5) Fan the copy paper and insert it into the tray. Make sure the edges
go under the corner hooks.
Note: Do not load paper above the maximum height line (
).
Exceeding the line will cause a paper misfeed.
6) Gently push the paper tray back into the copier.
Note: After loading copy paper, to cancel the blinking "H" without
restarting copying, press the clear (
) key. The "P" in the
display will go out and the ready (
) indicator will light up.
8. Power to copier
1) Ensure that the power switch of the copier is in the OFF position.
Insert the attached power cord into the power cord socket at the
