clogged. Follow these steps to check the print head nozzles:
1. Load letter-size plain paper in the sheet feeder.
2. Press the Setup button.
3. Press r to select Maintenance and press OK.
4. Select Nozzle Check and press OK.
5. Press x Start.

7. If there are no gaps, press OK to continue printing.
If there are gaps or the pattern is faint, press x Start to clean the print head.
See page 33 for details.
32 Maintaining Your All-in-One
Cleaning the Print Head
If print quality has declined and the nozzle check indicates clogged nozzles, you
can clean the print head. Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if necessary.
Note:
You cannot clean the print head if an ink cartridge is expended, and may not be able to
clean it when a cartridge is low. You must replace the cartridge first (see page 36).
1. Load letter-size plain paper in the sheet feeder.
2. Press the Setup button.
3. Select Maintenance and press OK.
4. Select Head Cleaning and press OK.
5. Press x Start.
Cleaning lasts around 1 minute. When it’s finished, you see a message on the
display screen.
Caution:
Never turn off the printer during a cleaning cycle or you may damage it.
6. Press x Start to run a nozzle check and confirm that the print head is clean.
Note:
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning the print head three times, turn off
your WorkForce 500 Series and wait at least six hours to let any dried ink soften. Then
try printing again.
If you do not use your WorkForce 500 Series often, it is a good idea to print a few pages
at least once a month to maintain good print quality.
Cleaning the Print Head 33
Checking the Ink Cartridge Status
Your WorkForce 500 Series will let you know when an ink cartridge is low or
expended by displaying a message on its display screen or your computer. You
cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges
are not expended. Replace any expended cartridges before printing or copying.
Note:
If you have installed a High Capacity (68) ink cartridge, the error message on your
screen may show it as 69. This is not a problem, however, because the WorkForce 500
Series recognizes that it is actually a High Capacity cartridge.
To check ink cartridge status from the display screen
anytime, follow these steps:
1. Press the Setup button.
2. Select Ink Levels and press OK.
3. A cartridge marked with
is getting low on ink.
See page 36 to replace the cartridge, if necessary.
A window may appear on your computer screen when you try to print when ink is
low. This window can optionally display ink offers and other updates retrieved
from an Epson website. On a Windows computer that is connected to the
Internet, you may see a screen asking if you want to receive these Epson offers the
first time you try to print when ink is low. Click Accept or Decline.
Note:
To disable checking for ink offers or updates from Epson, see the instructions in your
on-screen Epson Information Center.
34 Maintaining Your All-in-One
Purchasing Epson Ink Cartridges
You can purchase genuine Epson ink and paper at Epson Supplies CentralSM 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).
Use the following list when you order or purchase new ink cartridges:
Part number
Ink color
High Capacity
Black
69
68
Cyan
69
68
Magenta
69
68
Yellow
69
68
Note:
The 68 High Capacity color ink cartridges are available only online.
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.
Yields vary considerably based on images printed, print settings, paper type, frequency
of use, and temperature. For print quality, a small amount of ink remains in the cartridge
after the “replace cartridge” indicator comes on. The printer ships with full cartridges
and part of the ink from the first cartridges is used for priming the printer.
For best printing results, use up a cartridge within six months of opening the package.
Store ink cartridges in a cool, dark place. If you bring them inside from out in the cold,
allow them to warm up to room temperature for at least 3 hours before using them.
Purchasing Epson Ink Cartridges 35
Replacing Ink Cartridges
Make sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin. You must install new
cartridges immediately after removing the old ones.
Caution:
Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink. Cartridges are
vacuum packed to maintain reliability.
Leave the expended cartridge(s) installed until you have obtained a replacement, or the
ink remaining in the print head nozzles may dry out.
1. Turn on the WorkForce 500 Series.
If a cartridge is low or expended, you see a message
on the display screen. Note which cartridges need to
be replaced and press OK. (If you have installed a
High Capacity ink cartridge—68—the message on
your screen may show it as 69.)
If you’re replacing a cartridge before you see a
message on the display screen, press the Setup
button, select Maintenance, and press OK. Then select Change Ink
Cartridge and press OK.
2. Open the scanner, then open the cartridge cover.
3. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift it up.
Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used
cartridge apart or try to refill it.
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. Keep ink cartridges out of
the reach of children.
36 Maintaining Your All-in-One
4. Shake the cartridge several times,
then remove it from the package.
Do not to touch the green chip on
the side.
5. Remove the yellow tape from the
bottom of the ink cartridge.
Caution:
Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink will leak.
6. Insert the new ink cartridge into the holder and push it down until it clicks
into place.
7. Once you replace all the cartridges that need replacing, close the cartridge
cover and push it down until it clicks into place.
8. Close the scanner.
9. Press OK to begin charging the ink. This takes about 2 minutes. When you
see a completion message on the display screen, ink charging is finished.
Caution:
To conserve ink, never turn off the WorkForce 500 Series while ink is charging. If you
see an ink replacement message on the display screen, press OK and press down all
the cartridges securely.
If you remove a low or expended ink cartridge, you cannot reinstall and use the
cartridge.
Replacing Ink Cartridges 37
Solving Problems
Check the messages on the display screen to diagnose the cause of most problems.
You can also check the basic troubleshooting suggestions (beginning below) or see
the on-screen Epson Information Center for more detailed help.
Checking for Software Updates
Periodically, it’s a good idea to check Epson’s support website
for free updates to your WorkForce 500 Series software. Open
your on-screen Epson Information Center and select Download
the Latest Software or visit Epson’s support website at
epson.com/support (U.S.) or epson.ca (Canada).
With Windows, you can select Driver Update on the Maintenance tab in the
printer settings window. You can also click
or Start, select All Programs or
Programs, select EPSON, and click EPSON WorkForce 500 Series Driver
Update. Also select EPSON Scan and click EPSON WorkForce 500 Series
Scanner Driver Update.
Problems and Solutions
Check the solutions below if you’re having trouble using your all-in-one.
Note:
If the screen is dark, the WorkForce 500 Series is in sleep mode to save power. Press
any button (except the P On button) to wake it up.
Printing and Copying Problems
■
Make sure your paper is loaded printable side up (usually the whiter, brighter,
or glossy side). Load it short edge first, and against the right edge guide. Don’t
load paper above the arrow mark inside the guide.
38 Solving Problems
■
Make sure the type of paper you loaded matches the paper size and paper type
settings on the control panel when copying (see page 12), when faxing (see
page 21), or in your printer software (see page 30).
■
Use the Automatic Document Feeder to fax or scan legal-size documents, but
not to copy them. Letter-size paper is automatically selected for copying. If
you copy a legal-size document, your image will be cropped.
■
Make sure your original is positioned against the back left corner of the
scanner glass. If the edges are cropped, move your original away from the
edges slightly.
Paper Feeding Problems
If paper doesn’t feed correctly when printing, remove the paper and flip through
the stack to separate the sheets. Reload the paper against the right side and slide
the edge guide against it. Do not load too many sheets at once (see page 4).
If paper has jammed:
1. Press x Start to eject the jammed paper.
2. If paper is still jammed, gently pull it out from the output tray or sheet feeder.
3. If paper is stuck inside, press the P On button to turn off the printer. Then
lift the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the scanner,
and turn the printer back on.
If documents don’t feed correctly in the Automatic Document Feeder, make sure
the corners of the paper are not bent, folded, or curled up. Do not load more than
10 sheets of legal-size paper at a time. If documents have jammed:
1. Open the ADF cover and pull any paper out to the left as shown.
Caution:
Do not try to remove the paper without opening the ADF cover first, or you could
damage the mechanism.
Problems and Solutions 39
2. Press OK to clear any messages on the display screen.
3. Reload the paper.
Faxing Problems
■
Make sure the recipient’s fax machine is turned on and working.
■
Make sure the LINE port on the WorkForce 500 Series is connected to a
telephone wall jack. Verify that the telephone wall jack works by connecting a
phone to it.
■
If the line has static, press Setup, select Fax Settings, select
Communication, and turn off the V.34 and ECM (Error Correction Mode)
settings.
■
If the WorkForce 500 Series is connected to a DSL phone line, you must have
a DSL filter connected to the phone jack. Contact your DSL provider for the
necessary filter.
■
If fax calls are disconnected when you hang up, make sure a phone or
answering machine is connected to the EXT. port.
Print Quality Problems
■
For the best print quality, use Epson papers (see page 5) and genuine Epson
ink cartridges (see page 36).
■
If you notice light or dark bands across your printouts or they are too faint,
run a nozzle check (see page 32) to see if the print head needs cleaning.
■
If you notice jagged vertical lines, you may need to align the print head. See
the on-screen Epson Information Center for instructions.
■
The ink cartridges may be low on ink. Check your cartridge status (see
page 34) and replace cartridges, if necessary (see page 36).
■
If you’re copying, place the document flat against the scanner glass.
■
Clean the scanner glass with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth (paper towels are not
recommended), or use a small amount of glass cleaner on a soft cloth, if
necessary. Do not spray glass cleaner directly on the glass.

This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules and the requirements adopted by
the ACTA. On the back side is a label that contains, among other information, the FCC
registration number and the ringer equivalence number (REN) for this equipment. You
must, upon request, provide this information to your local telephone company. The
information associated with the services the equipment is to be connected are REN: 0.2B,
Jack type: RJ-11C.
The REN is useful to determine the quantity of devices that you may connect to your
telephone line and still have all of those devices ring when your telephone number is
called. In most, but not all areas, the sum of the RENs of all devices connected to one line
should not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number of devices that you may connect
to your line, you may want to contact your local telephone company to determine the
maximum REN for your calling area. For products approved after July 23, 2001, the REN
for this product is part of the product identifier that has the format US:
BKMFA02BC361A. The digits represented by 00 are the REN without a decimal point
(e.g., 00 is a REN of 0.0). For earlier products, the REN is separately shown on the label.

Connection to party lines is subject to state tariffs.
Should this equipment cause harm to the telephone network, the telephone company may
discontinue your service temporarily. If possible they will notify you in advance that
temporary discontinuance of service may be required. But if advanced notice isn’t
practical, the telephone company will notify you as soon as possible. You will be informed
of your right to file a complaint with the FCC. The telephone company may make
changes in its facilities, equipment, operations or procedures that could affect the proper
functioning of your equipment. If they do, you will be notified in advance to give you an
opportunity to maintain uninterrupted telephone service.
