MAINS PLUG WIRING INSTRUCTIONS
The mains lead of this equipment is already fitted with a mains plug which is either a non-rewireable
(moulded) or a rewireable type. Should the fuse need to be replaced, a BSI or ASTA approved fuse
to BS1362 marked   
  or  
  and of the same rating as the one removed from the plug must
be used.
Always refit the fuse cover after replacing the fuse on the moulded plug. Never use the plug without
the fuse cover fitted.
In the unlikely event of the socket outlet in your home not being compatible with the plug supplied
either cut-off the moulded plug (if this type is fitted) or remove by undoing the screws if a rewireable
plug is fitted and fit an appropriate type observing the wiring code below.
DANGER: The fuse should be removed from the cut-off plug and the plug destroyed immediately
and disposed of in a safe manner. Under no circumstances should the cut-off plug be inserted
elsewhere into a 13A socket outlet as a serious electric shock may occur.
To fit an appropriate plug to the mains lead, follow the instructions below:
IMPORTANT: The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
GREEN-AND-YELLOW:
Earth
BLUE:
Neutral
BROWN:
Live
As the colours of the wires in this mains lead may not correspond with coloured markings
identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured GREEN-AND-YELLOW must be connected to the terminal in the plug
which is marked with the letter E, or by the safety earth symbol 
Å@
, or coloured green or green-
and-yellow.
The wire which is coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter
N or coloured black.
The wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the
letter L or coloured red.
If you have any doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
WARNING: THIS APPARATUS MUST BE EARTHED.

CAUTIONS
Follow the cautions below when using this machine.
CAUTIONS ON USING THE MACHINE
Warning:
• The fusing area is hot. Exercise care in this area when removing misfed paper.
• Do not look directly at the light source. Doing so may damage your eyes.
Caution:
• Do not switch the machine rapidly on and off. After turning the machine off, wait 10 to 15 seconds before turning it 
back on.
• Machine power must be turned off before installing any supplies.
• Place the machine on a firm, level surface.
• Do not install the machine in a humid or dusty location.
• When the machine is not used for a long time, for example, during prolonged holidays, turn the power switch off 
and remove the power cord from the outlet.
• When moving the machine, be sure to turn the power switch off and remove the power cord from the outlet.
• Do not cover the machine with a dust cover, cloth or plastic film while the power is on. Doing so may prevent heat 
dissipation, damaging the machine.
• Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those specified herein may result in 
hazardous laser radiation exposure.
• The socket-outlet should be installed near the machine and should be easily accessible.
• Do not throw the toner cartridge into a fire. Toner may fly and cause burns.
• Store toner cartridges out of the reach of small children.
IMPORTANT POINTS WHEN SELECTING AN 
INSTALLATION SITE
Improper installation may damage the machine. Please note the following during initial installation and whenever the 
machine is moved.
Do not install your machine in areas that are:
The machine should be installed near an accessible power outlet for easy connection and 
disconnection.
If the machine is moved from a cool place to a warm place, condensation may form inside the machine. Operation 
in this condition will cause poor copy quality and malfunctions. Leave the machine at room temperature for at least 
2 hours before use.
• 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.
