F: Button and LCD test
Confirm the operation after replacement of the operation panel unit, board, or LCD unit.
1) In the button and LCD test mode, press the Stop/Reset button. The LCD turns blue, waiting for a button to be pressed.
2) Press each button of the operation panel (total 17 buttons).
3) Only one button should be pressed at one time. If 2 or more buttons are pressed at the same time, only one of them is considered to
be pressed, and the other buttons are ignored.
The LCD is divided into segments, representing each button. The color of a segment corresponding to the pressed button changes
to red.
4) Rotate the Easy-Scroll Wheel clockwise and counterclockwise 1 round (24 steps) each, as follows:
4-1) Rotate the Easy-Scroll Wheel clockwise step by step. The LCD is divided into 24 segments, representing each step.
The color of a segment corresponding to the step changes from red to green.
If the wheel is rotated counterclockwise before clockwise round completes, the color of segment(s) corresponding to
the number of steps the wheel is rotated counterclockwise returns to red.
If the wheel keeps rotated clockwise over 1 round (24 steps), the color of segment(s) corresponding to the extra
number of steps returns to red, starting with the "Start" segment in the figure below.
4-2) When the Easy-Scroll Wheel is rotated clockwise 1 round (24 steps), press the OK button.
4-3) Rotate the Easy-Scroll Wheel counterclockwise step by step. The LCD is divided into 24 segments, representing each
step. The color of a segment corresponding to the step changes from green to blue.
If the wheel is rotated clockwise before counterclockwise round completes, the color of segment(s) corresponding to
the number of steps the wheel is rotated clockwise returns to green.
If the wheel keeps rotated counterclockwise over 1 round (24 steps), the color of segment(s) corresponding to the
extra number of steps returns to green, starting with the "Start" segment in the figure below.
1-38
4-4) When the Easy-Scroll Wheel is rotated counterclockwise 1 round (24 steps), press the OK button. The color of all
segments turns red.
5) Open the scanning unit (printer cover) to display the color pattern. If there is any step left un-selected (a blue segment remained in

4. MACHINE TRANSPORTATION
This section describes the procedures for transporting the machine for returning after repair, etc.
1) In the service mode, press the ON/OFF button to finish the mode, and confirm that the paper lifting plate of the sheet feed unit is
raised.
2) Keep the print head and ink tanks installed in the carriage.
See Caution 1 below.
3) Turn off the machine to securely lock the carriage in the home position. (When the machine is turned off, the carriage is
automatically locked in place.)
See Caution 2 below.
Caution:
(1) If the print head is removed from the machine and left alone by itself, ink (the pigment-based black ink in particular) is likely to
dry. For this reason, keep the print head installed in the machine 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.
Memo:
If the print head must be removed from the machine and transported alone, 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).

1) Easy-Scroll Wheel
With the Easy-Scroll Wheel, a menu can be easily selected by rotating the wheel clockwise or counterclockwise. Together with the operation
panel which is located at the front center, usability has been significantly enhanced.
2) Print speed
By adopting longer nozzles and the double encoder system, higher photo print speed has been achieved.
- 4 x 6 photo (PP-101, standard, borderless)*1: Approx. 28 sec.
- Card Direct printing (4 x 6 borderless)*2: Approx. 43 sec.
- Camera Direct printing (4 x 6 borderless)*3: Approx. 44 sec.

Note: Notations for the Americas should be confirmed with the related marketing section of each sales company in the Americas.
3) Scanning resolution
The scanning resolution has been increased to 2,400 x 4,800 dpi.
4) Compact body
Compared with the previous model, the MP600 body size is reduced by 11 mm in height and 43 mm in depth, realizing more compact body
that fits any home use environment.
5) Remaining ink amount indication sequence in 2006 products
In previous models, indication of the remaining ink amount differs between the individual ink tank system and the FINE cartridge system.
In the 2006 models, the unified specifications have been dopted.
Major changes from the 2005 models:
- In Direct printing, printing will not be suspended at "Low Ink" indication. (Printing will start without a click by a user at the "Low Ink"
message.)
- The remaining ink status will be indicated by the following 4 levels:
Low:
No raw ink is detected by the optical method.
(From this point, the remaining ink amount will be determined by the dot count.)
Out:
No ink remains according to the dot count.
A warning will be displayed to indicate that ink may have run out.
Empty:
No raw ink is detected by the optical method, and the dot count value exceeds the threshold of complete exhaustion of
ink.
A warning will be displayed to indicate that ink has run out.
By pressing and holding the Stop/Reset button for 5 seconds or longer, the function to detect the remaining ink amount
can be disabled.
2-1
Unknown: Raw ink remains, but the dot count value exceeds the threshold of complete exhaustion of ink.
By pressing and holding the Stop/Reset button for 5 seconds or longer, the function to detect the remaining ink amount
can be disabled.
The remaining ink amount will be checked at any of the following timings:
- At the end of paper ejection*1
- At the end of print head cleaning
- At the end of initialization
- At the end of the following operation:
Cover open => Ink tank removal and installation => Cover close
- In duplex printing, at the end of paper ejection after printing on the back side of paper*1
*1: Not every paper ejection. Only after the dot count exceeds the specified value.

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 (when the
cleaning flag is on), except in the following cases:
- Cleaning on arrival:
1st: Performed when the scanning unit (printer cover) is closed after the print head and ink tanks are installed.
2nd: Performed before automatic print head alignment.
3rd: Performed before start of printing after automatic print head alignment.
- Manual cleaning / deep cleaning: Performed manually.

2) Fold the paper at approx. 60 mm from the end, and fold the folded end in half backward, as shown below.
3) Moisten the folded end portion (indicated by the blue circle in the figure below) using a wipe, and set the paper in the ASF so that
the moistened edge of the paper contacts the 2 sub-rollers. Then, fold the other end of the paper along the ASF cover edge to hook
the paper to the ASF cover, as shown below.
4) On the machine, select Settings, Maintenance, then Roller cleaning. For details, see "Standalone machine operation."
