Removing retaining brackets
It is very important that the printer be operated on a stable, sturdy and level table.
Ensure that the table is sturdy enough so the printer does not shake or vibrate during operation. Operating the printer on an unstable, uneven or slanted surface will cause poor print quality and could damage the printer.
Unlatch the Top Cover using the key provided and turning counter-clockwise. Hold the key in this position and lift the cover.
Locate the Table and Carriage Retainers. (See figure 2.4-1)
Remove thumb screws holding the Table and Carriage Retainer in position. (See figure 2.4-1). Keep the two Retainers and Thumb Screws for future use for printer shipment.
Now you can move the Print Table manually back and forward to make certain that the Print Table is free. Take a moment to look at all internal mechanisms and verify that nothing has been damaged during shipping.
