Unpacking the printer is simple and easy, but most can be caught unawares with the amount of stoppers, protective plastics and tapes placed for packing and transport by the manufacturer. Therefore, if you are opting for this MFP, make sure you read the instruction manual much in advance before powering it up because there are a series of plastic caps and brackets that need to be removed from the printer’s toner cartridge path to ensure that no paper jams inside the printer.

The reason is that the manufacturer installs the sealed cartridge inside the printer unlike the other models where the cartridge is packed separately. Once it is unpacked, the printer can be deployed in a matter of minutes by simply installing the driver and plugging in the USB cord.
