Protection Against Electrostatic Discharge

Caution: Read and follow all safety-related instructions provided with your product before attempting to install your product or its options.

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is a result of the buildup of electrostatic charge on your body or clothing. Under certain conditions, such as a dry environment, static charge can build up on your body and be discharged when you come in close proximity to or touch another object. ESD can harm electronic components in your device so precautions should be taken before installing any options such as memory, hard disk, etc.

All electronic components or options should be kept in their antistatic container or packaging until you are ready to install it. Before handling any sensitive electronic option or component, you should first touch a grounded metal object in order to discharge yourself.

Consult the installation instructions provided with your printer or optional component for additional information.
