PRINTER TRANSPORTATION METHOD
This section describes the procedures for transporting the printer (for returning after repair, etc.).
1. Keep the print head and ink tanks installed in the carriage. (See Caution 1 below.)
2. Turn off the printer to securely lock the carriage in the home position. (When the printer is turned off,
the carriage is automatically locked in place.) (See Caution 2 below.)
Confirm that the paper lifting plate of the sheet feeder unit is raised.(See Caution 3 below.)
3. Securely fix the carriage with tape, as shown in the figure below.
The tape should be similar to the polyester tape used at shipment, which is not easily cut, removable,
and will not leave adhesive on the unit or remove housing/silkscreening when pealed off.
Tape
Securely apply the tape so
that it will not easily be
removed.
Caution:
1. If the print head is removed from the printer and left alone by itself, ink (especially the green ink) is
likely to dry. For this reason, keep the print head installed in the printer, even during transportation.
2. Securely lock the carriage in the home position, to prevent the carriage from moving and applying
stress to the carriage flexible cable, or causing ink leakage, during transportation.
3. If the paper lifting plate of the sheet feeder unit is not raised and in the normal usage position (such as
when the power is turned off in the user mode) during transportation, the media sensor may be
dislocated.
Note:
If the print head must be removed from the printer and transported separately, perform the following:
1. Install the eight color ink tanks (to prevent the nozzles from drying).
2. Attach the protective cap (used when the packing was opened) to the print head (to protect the print
head face from damage due to shocks).

TECHNICAL REFERENCE

NEW TECHNOLOGIES
(1) CD-R feeding mechanism
For the i9950 model, the paper output tray serves as the CD-R tray feeder. (For the i9900 model, the paper
output tray serves only its original function, as the model does not support CD-R printing.)
1. How to set the paper output tray when performing CD-R printing.
By pressing the CD-R tray lever down, the paper output tray is raised to the CD-R printing position from
the paper printing position.
The sensor attached on the CD-R tray lever mechanism detects each printing position.
CD-R tray lever
Access cover
Paper output tray

2-1
2. How to set the paper output tray when performing paper printing
By lifting the front of the paper output tray up slowly, the paper output tray returns to the paper printing
position from the CD-R printing position.
<Expected problems and how to handle them>
Problem
If the paper output tray is in the CD-R printing
position, when the access cover is opened with the
printer powered on, the carriage does not move to
the center. (Warning indication)
If the paper output tray is in the CD-R printing
position when trying to print to paper, the Power
lamp blinks in orange 6 times. (Error indication)
Handling
Change the paper output tray to the paper printing
position from the CD-R printing position (See above
2.), close the access cover, and open it again.
Press the Resume/Cancel button, change the paper
output tray to the paper printing position from the
CD-R printing position (See above 2.), and perform
printing.
2-2
(2) Independent cleaning
For i9900/i9950 models, the print head consists of two blocks (C, M, Y and PM, R, BK, G, PC). As a result,
it is possible to select either a specific block, or both blocks, for cleaning. For the i9100 model, which has
only one block, it was possible only to perform bulk cleaning.
The example print head composition is for the i9900/i9950 model.
The i9900/i9950 print head consists of two blocks with eight colors (PM, R, BK. G, PC and C, M, Y,
from left to right).
The example print head composition is for the i9100 model.
The i9100 print head consists of one block with six colors (C, PC, BK, Y, PM, and M, from left to right).

2.
CLEANING MODE AND AMOUNT OF INK PURGED
To prevent printing problems due to bubbles, dust, or ink clogging, print head cleaning is performed before
the start of printing, except in the following cases:
- Cleaning on arrival:
Performed when the access cover is closed.
- Cleaning by dot count:
Performed after ejection of paper
- Manual cleaning / deep cleaning: Performed manually.
<Cleaning mode list>
Group 1 includes BK/R/G/PC/PM, and Group 2 includes C/M/Y.
