Statement of Volatility

Type of memory


Volatile memory

The printer uses standard random access memory (RAM) to buffer temporarily user data during simple print and copy jobs.

Non-volatile memory

The printer may use two forms of non-volatile memory: EEPROM and NAND (flash memory). Both types are used to store the operating system, printer settings, network information, scanner and bookmark settings, and embedded solutions.

Hard disk memory

Some printers may have a hard disk drive installed. The printer hard disk is designed for printer-specific functionality. The hard disk lets the printer retain buffered user data from complex print jobs, form data, and font data.

Erase the content of any installed printer memory in the following circumstances:

Disposing of a printer hard disk

Note: To guarantee that all data are completely erased, destroy physically each hard disk where data is stored.
