  • Place the printer in a dust-free area, within a temperature range of 10° C to 32° C (50° F to 90° F), and a relative humidity range of 10 % to 80 %.
  • Place the printer in an area where there is adequate space for ventilation, operation, and servicing.
  • Do not place the printer on a carpeted floor. Airborne carpet fibers can be pulled into the printer and cause print-quality problems.
  • Do not place the printer near a heat source.
  • Do not place the printer in direct sunlight to avoid exposure to light-sensitive components.
  • Do not place the printer where it is directly exposed to the cold air flow from an air conditioning system.
  • Do not block or cover the slots and openings on the printer. The printer can overheat without adequate ventilation.
  • Use the printer at elevations below 2,438 m (8,000 ft).
  • Place the printer on a solid, level, non-vibrating surface with adequate strength to hold the weight of the printer. The base printer weight, without any packaging materials, is approximately 28 kg (60 lb). Make sure the printer is level with the surface it is located on.
