HP Designjet 10000s Printer Series - Safety Precautions

General warnings

  • Only use a 200-240 V AC power supply voltage. Avoid overloading the printer’s electrical outlet with multiple devices.
  • Be sure the printer is well-grounded. Failure to ground the printer may result in electrical shock, fire, and susceptibility to electromagnetic interference.
  • Do not disassemble or repair the printer yourself. Do not reinstall the printer in a new location. Call your local HP Service Representative for service.
  • Use only the electrical cord supplied by HP with the printer. Do not damage, cut, or repair the power cord. A damaged power cord has risk of fire and electric shock. Replace a damaged power cord with an HP-approved power cord.
  • Do not allow metal or liquids (except those used in HP Cleaning Kits) to touch the internal parts of the printer. Doing so may cause fire, electric shock, or other serious hazards.
  • Power OFF the printer and unplug the power cable from the power outlet in any of the following cases:
    • When placing your hands inside the printer.
    • If there is smoke or an unusual smell coming from the printer.
    • If the printer is making an unusual noise not heard during normal operation.
    • A piece of metal or a liquid (not part of cleaning and maintenance routines) touches internal parts of the printer.
    • During an electrical (thunder/lightning) storm.
    • During a power failure.
  • Inks used in the printer and liquids in the HP Cleaning kits contain an organic solvent (ethylene glycol monobutyl ether acetate, CAS No. 112-07-2). Observe all local, state, and federal regulations related to the handling, use, storage, and disposal of organic solvents.
  • Ink and fluids used in the Cleaning Kits are combustible. Do not use or store within 8 meters (25 feet) of open flames, sparks, or other sources of ignition.
  • Do not operate printer within 8 meters (25 feet) of open flames, sparks, or other sources of ignition. Do not smoke within 8 meters (25 feet) of the printer.
  • Install and operate the printer in a well-ventilated area.
  • The printer installation must meet local, state, and federal regulations on the emissions of volatile organic compounds in the workplace. It is the responsibility of the user to comply with these regulations. HP recommends that installations use an ink vapor extraction and exhaust system or an HP Air Purification System. Before installing a system exhausting ink vapors to the outside atmosphere, consult with your local air quality control authorities. It is your responsibility to comply with all local, state, and federal air pollution control regulations and building codes.
  • Avoid contact between ink and skin, eyes, and clothing.
    • Immediately wash skin with soapy water.
    • Remove clothing soaked with ink from contact with skin.
    • Use an approved eye wash station if ink is splashed into eyes and consult a doctor if necessary.
      If an approved eye wash station is unavailable, flush eyes with cold water and consult a doctor if necessary.
  • Do not swallow ink. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting, but seek immediate medical attention.
  • Keep ink cartridges, cleaning kits, and waste ink bottles out of the reach of children.
  • Be sure all operators are trained in the use of emergency equipment such as eye wash stations and fire extinguishers and know where they are located.

General cautions

  • Handle media rolls with care. They can be heavy and difficult to move in confined spaces. In some cases, two people should move and install media rolls. Dropping a media roll could cause personal injury or damage to the printer.
  • Allow and maintain adequate space around printer for immediate access to safety equipment such as eye wash stations, fire extinguishers, glove and safety glass dispensers, and fireproof waste storage containers.
  • Treat any media, used cleaning and maintenance supplies, and wipes soaked with ink as combustible materials. Handle and dispose of properly.
  • If an Air Purification System is installed, allow adequate space for exhaust hoses from the printer. Locate these hoses and the Air Purification System so that they do not pose a trip hazard or interfere with the operation of the printer such as loading and unloading media, replacing ink cartridges, inspecting and replacing the waste ink bottle.
  • Always hold the power cord by the plug when connecting and disconnecting from the power outlet. Never pull on the cord because this may damage it and create risk of fire and electric shock.
  • Do not touch heater surfaces in the paper path. This may cause burns.
In order to ensure the safe operation of the printer, heed all of the cautions and warnings contained above.
