CAUTION CAUTION
 
We recommend that you place the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly on a clean, flat surface with a sheet of disposable paper or cloth underneath it in case you accidentally spill or scatter toner.
 
Handle the toner cartridge carefully. If toner scatters on your hands or clothes, wipe or wash it off with cold water at once.
 
To prevent damage to the machine caused by static electricity, DO NOT touch the electrodes shown in the illustration.
