7. SPECIAL NOTES ON SERVICING
7-1. Resetting the Main and Platen Waste Ink Counters
The counters for the main waste ink absorber and the platen waste ink absorber can be reset
separately. At waste ink absorber replacement, using the iP2200 / iP1600 / iP1200 service tool,
reset the applicable waste ink counter(s). (When both the main and platen waste ink absorbers are
replaced, reset both the main and platen waste ink counters.)
If an error has occurred in the printer, the service tool cannot be used as it is. To use the service tool,
set the printer in the special mode, following the “special mode setting procedures” in 4. SERVICE
MODE.
<Waste ink absorber replacement procedures>
1. Error check
At a waste ink full error (95% or full), identify which waste ink absorber is full, the main or the
platen, using the iP2200 / iP1600 / iP1200 service tool’s EEP-ROM INFORMATION, Dd or Ds
values, as the error itself does not indicate which waste ink absorber is full. (See APPENDIX 2,
iP2200 / iP1600 / iP1200 SERVICE TOOL, for details). Then, replace the applicable waste ink
absorber.
- Dd: Main waste ink absorber amount (120,080 mg at 95% full, 126,400 mg at full)
- Ds: Platen waste ink absorber amount (17,955 mg at 95% full, 18,900 mg at full)
2. Resetting the replaced waste ink absorber counter
- At main waste ink absorber replacement:
In the iP2200 / iP1600 / iP1200 service tool CLEAR WASTE INK COUNTER section,
click MAIN to reset the main waste ink counter value.
- At platen waste ink absorber replacement:
In the iP2200 / iP1600 / iP1200 service tool CLEAR WASTE INK COUNTER section,
click PLATEN to reset the platen waste ink counter value.
7-2. Servicing in Asia
- Elimination of Major Component Connectors on the Logic Board Ass’y In the models (iP2200, iP1600, and iP1200), the PE sensor, ASF sensor, and LF encoder sensor are
soldered to the logic board ass’y; thereby, the connectors which were used in prior models are
eliminated.
<Special notes on servicing>

B: The phenomenon may occur under certain conditions, but likeliness is assumed very low in practical usage.
C: The phenomenon is unlikely to be recognized by the user, and no practical issues are assumed.
(17/23)
Cause
The edge of paper rises due when paper
is curled, causing the ink cartridge to rub
against the printed surface of paper,
resulting in smearing.
When borderless printing is conducted
continuously, ink mist attaches to the ribs
on the platen, and is transferred to the
backside of the following paper.
8-2. Major Functions
(1) Paper thickness lever (at the bottom front of the printer)
The head-to-paper distance can be adjusted using the paper thickness lever.
<Possible problems with this function>
- The ink cartridge rubs against the paper when the amount of paper curl is large.
-> Flatten curled paper (to less than 3 mm).
-> In print modes other than borderless printing, conduct printing in the print quality assurance
area of the top and bottom edges. (Top margin 38.3 mm, bottom margin 31.2 mm)
(2) Quiet mode
The printer has a quiet mode function.
Compared with the normal mode,
Acoustic noise level:
Slightly lower. (HQ normal approx. 43.7 dB, Quiet approx. 42.8 dB)
Audible overtone level: Sound quality changes, and sound becomes quieter.
Print speed:
Slows.
<Possible problems with this function>
- The operation sound does not become quieter.
-> The audible sound becomes only slightly quieter.
- Printing is slow.
-> Disable the Quiet mode.
(3) Remaining ink level detection function
The printer has a function to detect the remaining ink level.
Detection method: Dot counting (Counted for each BK/CL ink cartridge)
CL cartridge: The remaining ink level is detected by total counted dot values
of 3 colors of ink.
Display method: Displayed on the Status Monitor (at 4 levels listed below for each BK/CL ink
cartridge)
Level 1: Approx. 70% of ink remaining
Level 2: Approx. 40% of ink remaining
Level 3: Indication of “!” mark (Remaining ink level is low)
Level 4: Indication of “X” mark (No ink remaining)
Note: Remaining ink detection function displays the status only, and does not
cause errors.
Accuracy:
The margin of error of detection accuracy is +/-10% in normal printing.
The margin of error is likely to be large in the following specific print patterns:
When printing continuously using any one of the CMY colors of ink
-> As the remaining ink level is calculated by the counted dot value of the
least remaining ink of 3 colors, if any of the C/M/Y inks is heavily
consumed, the margin of error for remaining ink increases.
When performing continuous BK solid printing
-> With continuous printing, ink flow from the tank to the ink chamber can be
interrupted, after which ink remains unused in the tank.
<Possible problems with this function>
- When a once-used ink cartridge is installed, the actual remaining ink level is not detected, and an
error indicating the remaining ink amount is unknown occurs.
Pressing the Resume/Cancel button will clear the error, and printing can be done. However, the
function to detect the remaining ink amount is disabled (ink status is not displayed).
e.g.: An ink cartridge was once used in another printer.
(18/23)
A current ink cartridge is removed from the printer. -> A new ink cartridge is installed. ->
The removed ink cartridge is installed again after removing the new ink cartridge.
- Due to the specific print pattern, the actual remaining ink level does not match the indicated
remaining ink level.
This is because a detection error can be large in specific print patterns (such as continuous
printing using any one of the CMY colors of ink or continuous solid printing, etc.).
(4) Start of printing before receipt of the complete print data
The printer RAM is not enough to store the complete print data for 1 scanning, so printing starts before the
entire print data for 1 scanning is stored in the buffer.
<Possible problems with this function>
- Printing is slow.
- Lines or streaks appear on printouts.
-> Increase the print quality (from Standard to High).
(5) Deep cleaning
The printer has a deep cleaning (refreshing) function.
Deep cleaning (refreshing):
This is a deep cleaning function in order to resolve print failure due to ink clogging
the nozzles. (The black ink is pigment-based, and clogs easier than other
dye-based ink.)
Perform from the printer driver Maintenance.
<Possible problems with this function>
- Excessive ink consumption when conducting deep cleaning repeatedly. (The amount of ink used is
approx. 4 times the normal manual cleaning amount.)

(6) Print head alignment
The printer has a print head alignment function (print head position adjustment function). As it is not
necessary to perform print head alignment at setup or installation of the printer, the function is only briefly
introduced at installation.
Print head alignment: This is a function to correct displacements between the nozzle lines of the
print head, and incorrect print position at bi-directional printing.
The adjustment is conducted using the printed head position adjustment
pattern.
A: Alignment of cyan nozzle inclination
(19/23)
B: Alignment of cyan large nozzles in bi-directional printing
C: Alignment of cyan small nozzles in bi-directional printing
D: Alignment between cyan large and small nozzles

O: Alignment between yellow large and small nozzles
Perform from the printer driver Maintenance.
(At initial set-up by the user, notice to perform the print head alignment is
displayed in the Status Monitor.)
<Possible problems with this function>
- The line is not straight.
-> Perform print head alignment from the printer driver.
- Printout is granulated.
-> Perform print head alignment from the printer driver.
