Operation

System Overview (Continued) Before Printing


This section describes the following operations that must be made prior to starting
System Configuration printing after mounting the paper tray and paper cover on the printer (see
“Assembly” on page 72) and making the necessary connections (see “Connections”
The following shows an example of a printer system configuration. on page 74).
• Loading an ink ribbon cartridge (See below.)
• Loading paper (See page 12.)
• Selecting the input signal (See page 14.)
Once the above operations have been completed, there should be no need to repeat
them during routine printing. Perform them only when absolutely necessary.

Loading an Ink Ribbon Cartridge
To make printouts, an ink ribbon cartridge (an ink ribbon holder which has been
loaded with an ink ribbon) and paper must be loaded.
Load an ink ribbon into the supplied ink ribbon holder, then load the ink ribbon
cartridge into the printer’s ribbon compartment.

Notes

• When you use the UPC-510 Color Printing Pack, 200 sheets of printouts can be
printed for one ink ribbon roll. Even if you finish one pack of paper containing

Precautions

Safety Location

• Operate the printer using the power source specified in “Specifications” (page To prevent internal heat built-up, leave enough room around the printer for air to
123). circulate through the vents on the left hand side of the cabinet.
• Be careful not to damage the AC power cord by placing or dropping heavy
objects on it; it is dangerous to use the unit with a damaged AC power cord.

• Unplug the AC power cord by grasping the plug, not the cable itself.

malfunction.
• Do not remove the cover. There is a danger of electric shock from the internal
parts.
• Be careful not to spill water or other liquids on the unit, or to allow combustible Cleaning
or metallic material to enter the cabinet. If used with foreign matter in the
cabinet, the unit is liable to fail, or present a risk of fire or electric shock. Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft dry cloth, or a soft cloth lightly
• Ventilation holes are provided to prevent the unit from overheating. Be careful moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use any type of solvent, such as
not to obstruct them with other units or by covering the unit with a cloth, etc. alcohol or benzine, which may damage the finish.
• If the unit malfunctions or if a foreign body falls into the cabinet, disconnect the
AC power cord immediately and consult your Sony service facility or your Sony
dealer.

Installation
• Avoid placing the unit in a location subject to:
— mechanical vibration
— high humidity
— excessive dust
— direct or excessive sunlight
— extremely high or low temperatures
• Do not use other electronic equipment near the unit. The unit will not work
properly in strong electromagnetic fields.
• Do not place a heavy object such as a monitor on the printer.

Condensation
• If the printer is subject to wide or sudden changes in temperature, such as when it
is moved from a cold room to a warm room or when it is left in a room with a
heater that tends to produce large amounts of moisture, condensation may form
inside the printer. In such cases the printer will probably not work properly, and
may even develop a fault if you persist in using it. If condensation forms, turn off
the power and leave the printer to stand for at least one hour.
• If the printing pack is subjected to wide or sudden changes in temperature,
condensation may form on the ink ribbon or paper. This will cause the printer to
malfunction. Also, if the printing pack is used in this state, spots are likely to
appear on the printout. Therefore, avoid storing the printing pack in locations
subject to wide or sudden changes of temperature.
• To store a half-used printing pack, replace it in its original packing and reseal the
package. If possible, keep the sealed printing pack in a cool, dark location. To
subsequently use the printing pack, place it, in its sealed package, in a warm
room for several hours. Doing so prevents condensation from forming when the
printing pack is removed from its package.
