A horizontally oriented parallel port and a USB connector are on the printer’s rear panel.
The control panel includes one button (Stop/Resume Task) and four LED indicators:
- Power On
- Active Mode (Printing)
- No Print Media
- Paper Stuck
The printing section resides under the top cover. You can take the cartridge out using a special lever. The cartridge is held quite firmly in its place.
Besides the photo-drum and the toner container the cartridge has a rather big mechanical part (I mean the gears in the left part of the snapshot). The container can be detached from the rest of the cartridge, but you must be very careful not to spill the toner. The photo-conductor is not protected, so you should avoid exposing it to direct sunlight or touching it with your fingers.
