1 Introduction

What Do I Need To

Know?

You should be familiar with your computer and basic Windows® operations. For example, you should know how to open and close windows and menu items using a mouse or equivalent keyboard commands. If you're not sure how to do something, consult the Microsoft Windows User's Guide or choose Help from the Windows Start menu.

IMPORTANT! Please follow these commonsense precautions whenever you use your printer.

Read and save all instructions before you attempt to operate your printer.

To protect against electric shock, plug the machine into a properly grounded wall outlet. DO NOT use an adapter plug. Use of an adapter could compromise the ground and cause a possible shock hazard or damage to the equipment in the event of a short circuit.

DO NOT remove the ground pin from the line cord.

Avoid using outlets controlled by wall switches; someone could accidently shut your printer off.

DO NOT use an outlet that shares the same circuit with other machines with heavy current demand such as air conditioners, refrigerators, etc.

SV60970-OG Rev. A

Important Safety

Notes (continued)

DA900 AddressRightPrinter 1

Use the power cord wall plug as the primary means of

 

 

disconnecting the machine from the AC power. The

Introduction

 

wall outlet should be near the machine and easily

 

 

 

accessible.

 

DO NOT route the power cord over sharp edges or

 

 

trap it between pieces of furniture.

 

Insure that there is no strain on the power cord where

 

 

it passes between the equipment, walls or furniture.

1-

Be certain the area in front of the wall receptacle into

 

which the machine is plugged is free from obstruction.

 

Do not remove the covers; they enclose hazardous

 

 

parts. If the machine has been dropped or has

 

 

otherwise had the covers stressed in any way, report it

 

 

to Pitney Bowes Service. Keep fingers, loose clothing,

 

 

jewelry, ties and long hair away from moving parts.

 

To reduce the risk of fire or electrical shock, DO NOT

 

 

attempt to disassemble this machine. If service is

 

 

required, contact Pitney Bowes customer service.

 

• Use only Pitney Bowes approved and supplied ink

 

 

cartridges and cleaners.

 

Avoid touching moving parts or materials while the

 

 

machine is in use. Before clearing a jam, be sure

 

 

machine mechanisms come to a complete stop.

 

Use the equipment only for its intended purpose.

 

Always follow the specific occupational safety and

 

 

health standards prescribed for your workplace.

 

Turn off the machine and unplug power cords at the

 

 

end of the working day to reduce the risk of injury.

SV60970-OG Rev. A

Media Requirements (continued)

Printer Output

DA900 AddressRightPrinter 21

The printer is designed to feed and print on a range of materials with various finishes and coatings. However, since coated or gloss stocks do not easily absorb ink, smearing may occur. Print may appear fuzzy on porous paper. The texture of the media has a direct effect on both the print quality and ink drying time.

Be aware that when printing in high quality mode or humid conditions, drying time increases.

It is best to test each new type of media to determine performance levels before beginning the job. If you require fast-drying ink, contact the Pitney Bowes Supply LineSM. See Chapter 8—Supplies and Options.

Image Area: 3" x 17" using six printheads.

Specifications-

 

Average Media Output: These specifications apply to any

 

image size and type that fits within the 3" x 17" print area,

 

including text, graphics and barcodes. Average media

 

output varies depending on material used, length of

 

media, machine condition and operator skill.
