If this is your first time powering up the printer, it is highly advisable that you connect the printer, and nothing else, to a standalone power strip, and use the power strip's switch to turn on and off the device.

The reason for this precaution is if there were to be a wiring defect, your hands will be far away from the defect and in a position to cut power to the device.

Verify that the power switch is off, plug device in.

With the power switch set to "Off", turn on the switch on the side of the printer.

Now, keeping hands and tools away from the printer, click the switch to "On" position on the power strip, but be prepared to cut power if something does go wrong.
