Dear Sharp Valued Customer;

As the Year 2000 approaches, many corporations and businesses are concerned about the continued operation of their business equipment past the Year 2000. The products they currently use or plan to purchase must be capable of correctly processing, receiving, interpreting, managing, and manipulating data without experiencing incorrect results when processing date-related information.

Sharp Electronics Corporation is sensitive to our customer's business needs, therefore, we are working to identify and communicate all Year 2000 issues.

Please be advised that [ALL]:

Sharp copiers [AL-, AR-, SD-, SF- and Z-], printers [JX-], and their associated options do not use a date format for operation and therefore do not require special attention because of the "turn of the century". All of the calculations used by Sharp copiers and printers, for items like maintenance and supply replenishment schedules, are based on the copier's or printer's meter reading.

Sharp's facsimile machines [FO- and UX-] do not use a calendar feature for operation. However, a date stamp indicates either the last two digits (e.g. "99") or the four digit year (e.g. "1999") of the year in which it is operating and will change from "99" to "00" or "1999" to "2000" in normal operation. Under these circumstances, these Sharp products ought not to require special attention because of the "turn of the century".

This information is not a warranty and does not modify or extend warranties. Only written warranties made by your dealer or by Sharp at the time of original sale of the Sharp product to an end-user in its factory carton apply, and then, only for the periods referred to in the original warranty documentation.

We are making this information available to you so that you can plan your "turn of the century" programs with the knowledge that Sharp brand facsimile machines have no special requirements.

Thank you for your interest in Sharp products.
