Preparing the Printer For a Long Period of Inactivity

Use this procedure to prepare the printer for a long period of inactivity with its power switch turned to off.

Note that not using the following procedure could result in unusual noises when use of this printer is resumed.


  • Do not switch off the printer during printing.

1Turn off the power switch.

2Pull out the plug from the socket.

3Pull Front Cover Open Lever, and then open the front cover with both hands carefully.


4Lower the blue fusing unit lever.


5Using a coin, turn both gray knobs on the fusing unit 90 degrees counterclockwise (until the slots are horizontally aligned with the image marking shown in the illustration below).


6Close the front cover with both hands carefully.



  • This step is not necessary if the printer's power switch is on but the printer has been inactive for a long time.
