Drum Cartridge

Handling Precautions

Make sure nothing touches or scratches the light-sensitive drum surface (blue colored part) or
transfer roller (black colored part). Scratches, dirt, or oil from your hands on the drum or
transfer roller deteriorates print quality.

Do not expose the drum cartridge to direct sunlight and avoid exposing the drum cartridge to
fluorescent indoor light, as this may result in dropouts or dirty printing.

When replacing the drum cartridge, work on a desk or other flat surface to avoid scratching
the light-sensitive drum and transfer roller.

Avoid removing the drum cartridge from the printer before it is time to replace it. Removing
and replacing the drum cartridge can cause dirt to stick to the cartridge and deteriorate print

Avoid tilting or shaking the drum cartridge when removing it, as toner may spill inside the
printer and cause damage.

To ensure good print quality, keep the drum cartridge level when handling it.

The drum cartridge weighs 10 lbs. (4.5 kg). Handle it carefully.

Wrap used drum cartridges in a plastic bag and dispose of them as non-burnable waste.
