Paper Loading and Handling Guidelines
2. Remove only the yellow part of the tape seal on top. Don’t
pull off the blue portion or try to remove the clear seal
underneath the cartridge.
The following tips help you get the best results:
❏ Always load the printable side (the whiter and brighter side)
face up. Some special papers come with a cut corner to help
you load them correctly.
❏ Load letterhead or preprinted paper so the top of the paper
feeds into the printer first.
❏ Don’t load paper above the arrow on the left edge guide.
❏ You can load up to 20 sheets of Photo Paper,
30 transparencies, and 30 Photo Quality Ink Jet Cards.
For Photo Quality Ink Jet Paper, you can load up to the
arrow mark on the left edge guide.
Note:
If you have an automatic document feeder, remove it from the
EPSON Stylus Scan, but don’t disconnect it from the option
interface.
❏ Use a support sheet if you find it in the paper package.
❏ Return unused paper to the original package as soon as you
finish printing.
3. Make sure the EPSON Stylus Scan is turned on and not
printing. Open the document cover, and then open the
maintenance cover. The internal cover opens automatically.
Replacing an Ink Cartridge
When you’re low on ink or one of the cartridges is empty,
you’ll see a message on the LCD status display panel. It’s a
good idea to keep new cartridges on hand, since you can’t
print if either ink cartridge is empty.

Use these EPSON ink cartridges within six months of
installing them and before the expiration date on the package:
❏ Black ink cartridge:

❏ Color ink cartridge:
S020191
4. Press the R cleaning button and hold it for about three
seconds until the print head moves left and the Operate
light begins flashing.
If you need to replace an ink cartridge before you see a
message (because the ink is too old, for example) follow the
instructions in “Replacing an Outdated Ink Cartridge” on
page 9.
Caution:
Don’t open the clamp or remove a cartridge except to replace it
with a new one. Once you remove a cartridge, you can’t reuse
it, even if it contains ink.
Removing and Installing Ink Cartridges
You can replace a cartridge whenever you see a message that
the cartridge is low on ink or empty. (If you press the R
cleaning button before you see a message, the EPSON
Stylus Scan cleans the print head, as described on page 9.
Follow these steps:
Also, never move the print head by hand.
1. Remove the new ink cartridge from its package.
Caution:
You must remove the yellow tape from the top of the cartridge
or you will permanently damage it. Do not remove the clear
seal from the bottom of the cartridge, or ink will leak out.

Replacing an Outdated Ink Cartridge
5. Pull up the ink cartridge clamp. The cartridge rises up from
its holder.
Even if you don’t see a message that a cartridge is low on ink
or empty, you may need to replace it if it’s more than six
months old. If your printouts don’t look as good as they used
to, try cleaning and aligning the print head first. If print
quality doesn’t improve, try replacing one or both cartridges.
Follow these steps to replace an ink cartridge before you see a
message on the LCD status display panel:
1. Prepare your new ink cartridge for installation as described
in “Removing and Installing Ink Cartridges” on page 8.
2. Make sure the EPSON Stylus Scan is turned on and not
printing. Then open the document and maintenance
covers.
Warning:
If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and
water. If ink gets into your eyes, flush them immediately with
water.
3. Press the E load/eject button and hold it down for about
three seconds until the print head moves left. The Operate
light begins flashing.
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children.
4. Remove the old ink cartridge and install the new cartridge
as described in “Removing and Installing Ink Cartridges”
on page 8. Don’t press the R cleaning button, however.
6. Lift the cartridge out of the EPSON Stylus Scan and
dispose of it carefully.
5. Close the maintenance and document covers and press the
E load/eject button.
7. Lower the new ink cartridge into its holder with the label
facing up and toward the back of the printer. Don’t press
down on the cartridge.
Caution:
To avoid damaging the printer, never move the print head by
hand.
8. Press down the ink cartridge clamp until it locks in place.
The EPSON Stylus Scan moves the print head and begins
charging the ink delivery system. The Operate light flashes
and the printer makes various sounds. Charging takes about
60 seconds. When it’s finished, the Operate light stops
flashing and stays on.
Cleaning the Print Head
If your printouts are light or have gaps in the image, you may
need to clean the print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they
can deliver ink properly.
9. If you need to replace the other ink cartridge, repeat the
preceding steps before going on to step 10.
Cleaning the print head uses ink, so clean it only if print
quality declines. You can clean the print head using either:
10. Close the maintenance and document covers, and then
press the R cleaning button.
❏ The Head Cleaning utility in your printer software (with
the printer connected to a local port, not over a network)
Caution:
Never turn off the printer while the Operate light is flashing,
unless the printer hasn’t moved or made any noise for more
than five minutes.

2. Start an application and open a document. Access the
printer settings dialog box.
3. Click the Utility tab (Windows) or the

4. Click the Head Cleaning icon. Follow the instructions
on the screen to print a test page.
5. Follow the instructions on the screen to clean the
print head.
Caution:
Never turn off the EPSON Stylus Scan while the Operate light
is flashing, unless it hasn’t moved or made any noise for more
than 5 minutes.
Cleaning takes a couple minutes, during which the EPSON
Stylus Scan makes some noise and the Operate light
flashes. When the Operate light stops flashing, continue
with the next step.
Each staggered horizontal and straight vertical line should be
complete, with no gaps in the dot pattern. If your printout
looks okay, you’re done. If any dots are missing, as shown
below, clean the print head again.
6. Make sure paper is loaded in the EPSON Stylus Scan and
click Print nozzle check pattern (Windows) or
Confirmation (Macintosh). The nozzle check pattern
prints. (See page 10 for details.)

7. If the nozzle check pattern is complete, click Finish.
If the pattern is missing dots, click Clean to run another
cleaning cycle.
Using the Control Panel to Clean the Print
Head
1. Make sure the EPSON Stylus Scan is turned on but not
printing. Also, make sure that there’s no ink out message on
the LCD status display panel.
Aligning the Print Head
2. Press the R cleaning button and hold it down for three
seconds. Cleaning takes a couple minutes, during which the
EPSON Stylus Scan makes some noise and the Operate
light flashes.
Caution:
Load paper that’s at least letter-size width to prevent ink from
spraying inside the EPSON Stylus Scan and smudging your
printouts. For best results, load EPSON ink jet paper whenever you
check the print head alignment.
3. After the Operate light stops flashing, start an application
and open a document. If you’re connected directly to the
EPSON Stylus Scan, continue with step 4.
If your printouts contain vertical bands or crooked vertical
