Identifying the parts
The following illustration shows the Publisher, its Control Panel, the Buttons,
LED indicator lights, Input and Output Bins and other components.
The Robotic Disc Transporter moves the discs from the Input Bin, to a CD/DVD
Recorder, next to the printer, and finally to the Output Bin. Hence, the CD/DVD
Recorder is automatically loaded and unloaded by the Publisher's Robotic Disc
The Recorder Tray Button manually opens or closes the Recorder Tray. Under normal
operation, the in/out movement of the Recorder Tray is controlled automatically
and this button is not used.
The Control Panel contains LED Status Lights and Buttons to control the Publisher.
These indicate that Power is ON. They also blink in certain patterns to indicate
an error or other exceptional condition of the unit. The following table explains
briefly these conditions.

opened, the "Ink Cartridge Button" is used to position the Cartridge
Carrier for easy ink cartridge replacement.
The Input/Output Bins are situated under the top cover of the Publisher. The
bins will hold up to 25 discs each. The right-side bin is the Input Bin for
blank media; the left-side bin is the Output Bin for finished discs.
The Reject Area is where discs are dropped if they do not pass a software verification
test. The discs slide down the ramp, out in front of your Publisher.
Front Cover is a durable plastic cover that will protect the Publisher from
dust and interference.
The Ink Cartridge Carrier holds both a color ink cartridge (left side pen) and
a monochrome ink cartridge (right-side pen).

USB cable, included with your Publisher.
