Scan Resolution Guidelines
If you plan to enlarge a scanned image so you can print it at a larger size, you may need to increase the
resolution from the default resolution set by Epson Scan. Follow these guidelines to determine the
resolution setting you need:
• You will enlarge the image as you scan it.
If you will enlarge the image using Epson Scan's Target Size setting (Home and Professional modes
only), you do not need to increase the Resolution setting.
• You will scan the image at its original size, but enlarge it later in an image-editing program.
Increase Epson Scan's Resolution setting in your scan. Increase the resolution by the same amount
you will increase the image size to retain a high image quality. For example, if the resolution is 300 dpi
(dots per inch) and you will double the image size later, change the Resolution setting to 600 dpi.
• You will scan the image at 100% or smaller size.
Select Epson Scan's Resolution setting based on how you will use the scanned image:
• E-mail/view on a computer screen/post on the web: 96 to 150 dpi
• Print/convert to editable text (OCR): 300 dpi
117
• Fax: 200 dpi

Replacing Ink Cartridges
When an ink cartridge is expended, you need to replace it.
You may also need to replace a cartridge that is more than six months old, if your printouts do not look
their best, even after cleaning and aligning the print head.
Note: Please dispose of your used Epson branded ink cartridges responsibly and in accordance with
local requirements. If you would like to return your used ink cartridges to Epson for proper disposal,
please go to www.epson.com/recycle for more information.

Purchase Epson Ink Cartridges
You can purchase genuine Epson ink and paper at Epson Supplies Central at www.epson.com/ink3
(U.S. sales) or www.epson.ca (Canadian sales). You can also purchase supplies from an Epson
authorized reseller. To find the nearest one, call 800-GO-EPSON (800-463-7766).
Note: We recommend that you use genuine Epson cartridges and do not refill them. The use of other
products may affect your print quality and could result in printer damage.
The cartridges included with the printer are designed for printer set up and not for resale. After some ink
is used for priming, the rest is available for printing. Yields vary considerably based on images printed,
print settings, paper type, frequency of use, and temperature. For print quality, a variable amount of ink
remains in the cartridge after the "replace cartridge" indicator comes on.

Make sure you have your replacement cartridges handy before you begin. You must install new
cartridges immediately after removing the old ones.

If your printouts become too light, or you see dark or light bands across them, you may need to clean the

If you hear noises from your product after installing ink, check the following:
• The first time you install ink cartridges, the product must prime its print head. Wait until priming
finishes before you turn off the product, or it may prime improperly and use excess ink the next time
you turn it on. Your product is finished priming the print head when the power light stops flashing.
• If the product's print head stops moving or making noise, and the charging process has not finished
after approximately 5 minutes, turn off your product. Turn it back on and check to see if charging is still
in progress. If it is still in progress, contact Epson for help.

Product Cannot Connect to a Wireless Router or Access Point
If your product has trouble finding or connecting to a wireless router or access point, try these solutions:
• Make sure to place your product within contact range of your router or access point.
Note: Avoid placing your product near a microwave oven, 2.4 GHz cordless phone, or large metal
object, such as a filing cabinet.
• Verify that your router or access point is operating correctly by connecting to it from your computer or
another device.
• You may need to disable the firewall and any anti-virus software on your wireless router or access
point.
• Check to see if access restrictions, such as MAC address filtering, are set on the router or access
point. If access restrictions are set, add your product's MAC address to your router's address list. To
obtain your product's MAC address, print a network status sheet. Then follow the instructions in your
router or access point documentation to add the address to the list.
• If your router or access point does not broadcast its network name (SSID), follow the instructions that
came with your product to enter your wireless network name manually.
• If your router or access point has security enabled, determine the kind of security it is using and any
required password or passphrase for connection. Then make sure to enter the exact WEP key or WPA
passphrase correctly.
• Check if your computer is restricting the available wireless channels. If so, verify that your wireless
access point is using one of the usable channels and change to a usable channel, if necessary.
• If you are using a Wi-Fi Direct connection that suddenly disconnects, the Wi-Fi direct password on
your device may have been changed. If necessary, deleted the existing DIRECT-xxxxxxxx
connection settings from your device and enter a new password. See your device documentation for
instructions.
• If you connected your product to a Windows computer using Wi-Fi Direct and it automatically selected
Access Point Mode, you may have trouble accessing a low-priority Internet connection. Check the
network connection or adapter settings in the Windows Control Panel and set the Internet metric
setting to 100 for your version of the Internet Protocol.

Image is Scanned Upside-Down
Your product scans using the Auto Photo Orientation setting. This setting checks the preview image
for faces, the sky, and other features, and then correctly rotates the photo when it is scanned, if
necessary. If your photo is not oriented correctly using this option, deselect the Auto Photo Orientation
setting and scan again.

Scanned Image Colors Do Not Match Original Colors
Printed colors can never exactly match the colors on your computer monitor because printers and
monitors use different color systems: monitors use RGB (red, green, and blue) and printers typically use
CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black).
Check the color matching and color management capabilities of your computer, display adapter, and the
software you are using to see if they are affecting the palette of colors you see on your screen.
To adjust the colors in your scanned image, adjust these Epson Scan settings (if available) and try
scanning again:
• Change the Image Type setting and experiment with different combinations of the next settings.

• Adjust the Tone Correction setting.
• Adjust the Auto Exposure setting.

Do not use the cord with any other equipment.
• Place the product near a wall outlet where the plug can be easily unplugged.
• Avoid plugging the product into an outlet on the same circuit as a photo copier or air control system
that regularly switches on and off, or on an outlet controlled by a wall switch or timer.
• Do not let the power cord become damaged or frayed. Place it to avoid abrasions, cuts, fraying,
crimping, and kinking. Do not place objects on top of it and do not allow it to be stepped on or run over.
Be careful to keep the cord straight at each end.
221
• If you use an extension cord with the product, make sure the total ampere rating of the devices
plugged into the extension cord does not exceed the cord's ampere rating. Also, make sure the total
ampere rating of all devices plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed the wall outlet's ampere
rating.
• Always turn off the product using the power button, and wait until the power light stops flashing before
unplugging the product or cutting off power to the electrical outlet.
• If you will not be using the product for a long period, unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet.
• Place the product on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond its base in all directions. It will not
operate properly if it is tilted or at an angle.
• Make sure the back of the product is at least 4 inches (10 cm) away from the wall.
• Allow space behind the product for the cables, and space above the product so that you can fully raise
the document cover.
• Leave enough space in front of the product for the paper to be fully ejected.
• Avoid locations that are subject to rapid changes in heat or humidity, shocks or vibrations, or dust.
• Do not place or store the product outdoors.
• Do not place the product near excessive heat sources or in direct sunlight.
• Leave enough room around the product for sufficient ventilation. Do not block or cover openings in the
case or insert objects through the slots.
• Keep the product away from potential sources of electromagnetic interference, such as loudspeakers
or the base units of cordless telephones.
• When connecting the product to a computer or other device with a cable, ensure the correct
orientation of the connectors. Each connector has only one correct orientation. Inserting a connector
in the wrong orientation may damage both devices connected by the cable.
• Do not touch the flat white cable inside the product.
• Do not move the print head by hand; this may damage the product.
• Do not spill liquid on the product or use the product with wet hands.
• Do not use aerosol products that contain flammable gases inside or around the product. Doing so may
cause fire.
• Do not press too hard on the document table when placing originals.
• Do not open the scanner section while the product is copying, printing, scanning, or performing any
other functions.
• Be careful not to trap your fingers when closing the document cover or scanner.
222
• Except as specifically explained in your documentation, do not attempt to service the product yourself.
• Unplug the product and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions: if
the power cord or plug is damaged; if liquid has entered the product; if the product has been dropped
or the case damaged; if the product does not operate normally or exhibits a distinct change in
performance. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions.
• Leave the ink cartridges installed. Removing the cartridges can dehydrate the print head and may
prevent the product from printing.
• Before transporting the product, make sure that the print head is in the home (far right) position and
the ink cartridges are in place.
• When storing or transporting the product, do not tilt it, stand it on its side, or turn it upside down;
otherwise ink may leak.
Parent topic: Important Safety Instructions
Ink Cartridge Safety Instructions
• Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children and do not drink the ink.
• Be careful when you handle used ink cartridges; there may be ink remaining around the ink supply
port. If ink gets on your skin, wash it off with soap and water. If it gets in your eyes, flush them
immediately with water.
• Do not put your hand inside the product or touch any cartridges during printing.
• Install a new ink cartridge immediately after removing an expended one. Leaving cartridges
uninstalled can dry out the print head and may prevent the product from printing.
• Do not remove or tear the label on the cartridge; this can cause leakage.
• Do not remove the transparent seal from the bottom of the cartridge. This may cause the cartridge to
become unusable.
• Do not break the hooks on the side of the cartridge when removing it from the packaging.
• Do not touch the green IC chip on the side of the cartridge. This may prevent normal operation.
• Do not shake cartridges after opening their packages; this can cause them to leak.
• If you remove an ink cartridge for later use, protect the ink supply area from dirt and dust and store it in
the same environment as the product. Note that there is a valve in the ink supply port, making covers
or plugs unnecessary, but care is needed to prevent the ink from staining items that the cartridge
touches. Do not touch the ink cartridge ink supply port or surrounding area.
• Use an ink cartridge before the date printed on its package.
• Do not dismantle an ink cartridge. This could damage the print head.
223
• Store ink cartridges in a cool, dark place.
• After bringing an ink cartridge inside from a cold storage site, allow it to warm up at room temperature
for at least three hours before using it.
• Store ink cartridges with their labels facing upward. Do not store cartridges upside down.

• Use only a dry, soft cloth to clean the LCD screen. Do not use liquid or chemical cleansers.
• If the LCD screen is damaged, contact Epson. If the liquid crystal solution gets on your hands, wash
them thoroughly with soap and water. If the liquid crystal solution gets into your eyes, flush them
immediately with water. If discomfort or vision problems remain after a thorough flushing, see a doctor
immediately.
