❏ The power-supply cords should be placed to avoid abrasions, cuts, fraying, crimping, and kinking. Do not place
objects on top of the power-supply cords and do not allow the power-supply cords to be stepped on or run over.
Be particularly careful to keep all the power-supply cords straight at the ends and the points where they enter
and leave the transformer.
❏ If you use an extension cord with the printer, make sure that the total ampere rating of the devices plugged into
the extension cord does not exceed the cord's ampere rating. Also, make sure that the total ampere rating of all
devices plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed the wall outlet's ampere rating.
❏ If you plan to use the printer in Germany, the building installation must be protected by a 10 or 16 amp circuit
breaker to provide adequate short-circuit protection and over-current protection for the printer.
❏ When connecting the printer 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.
❏ Place the printer on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond the base of the printer in all directions. The printer
will not operate properly if it is tilted at an angle.
❏ Allow space above the printer so that you can fully raise the document cover.
❏ Leave enough space in front of the printer for the paper to be fully ejected.
❏ Avoid places subject to rapid changes in temperature and humidity. Also, keep the printer away from direct
sunlight, strong light, or heat sources.
Advisories and Warnings for Using the Printer
❏ Do not insert objects through the slots in the printer.
❏ Do not put your hand inside the printer during printing.
❏ Do not touch the white flat cable and ink tubes inside the printer.
❏ Do not use aerosol products that contain flammable gases inside or around the printer. Doing so may cause fire.
❏ Do not move the print head by hand; otherwise, you may damage the printer.
❏ Be careful not to trap your fingers when closing the scanner unit.
❏ Do not press too hard on the scanner glass when placing the originals.

❏ Fan and align the edges of the paper before loading. Do not fan or curl photo paper. Doing so may damage the
printable side.

User's Guide
Preparing the Printer
❏ If the paper is curled, flatten it or curl it slightly in the opposite direction before loading. Printing on curled
paper may cause paper jams and smears on the printout.
❏ Do not use paper that is wavy, torn, cut, folded, damp, too thick, too thin, or paper that has stickers stuck to it.
Using these types of paper causes paper jams and smears on the printout.
❏ Make sure you are using long-grain paper. If you are not sure what type of paper you are using, check the paper
packaging or contact the manufacturer to confirm the paper specifications.

Ink Bottle Handling Precautions
Read the following instructions before refilling ink.
Handling precautions
❏ Use ink bottles with the correct part code for this printer.
❏ This printer requires careful handling of ink. Ink may splatter when the ink tanks are filled or refilled with ink.
If ink gets on your clothes or belongings, it may not come off.
❏ Do not shake too vigorously or squeeze the ink bottles.
❏ Once you open an ink bottle, we recommend using it as soon as possible.
❏ Store ink bottles at normal room temperature and keep them away from direct sunlight.
❏ Epson recommends using the ink bottle before the date printed on the package.
❏ Store the ink bottles in the same environment as the printer.
❏ When storing or transporting an ink bottle, do not tilt the bottle and do not subject it to impacts or temperature
changes. Otherwise, ink may leak even if the cap on the ink bottle is tightened securely. Be sure to keep the ink
bottle upright when tightening the cap, and take precautions to prevent ink from leaking when transporting the
bottle, for example, putting the bottle in a bag.
❏ After bringing an ink bottle inside from a cold storage site, allow it to warm up at room temperature for at least
three hours before using it.
❏ Do not open the ink bottle package until you are ready to fill the ink tank. The ink bottle is vacuum packed to
maintain its reliability. If you leave an ink bottle unpacked for a long time before using it, normal printing may
not be possible.
❏ If any of the ink tanks are not filled up to the lower line, refill the ink soon. Prolonged use of the printer when
the ink level is below the lower line could damage the printer.
❏ For optimum print results do not maintain low ink levels for extended periods of time.
72
User's Guide
Refilling Ink
❏ Although the ink bottles may contain recycled materials, this does not affect printer function or performance.
❏ Specifications and appearance of the ink bottle are subject to change without prior notice for improvement.
❏ Quoted yields may vary depending on the images that you are printing, the paper type that you are using, the
frequency of your prints and environmental conditions such as temperature.
Ink consumption
❏ To maintain optimum print head performance, some ink is consumed from all ink tanks not only during
printing but also during maintenance operation such as print head cleaning.
❏ When printing in monochrome or grayscale, color inks instead of black ink may be used depending on the
paper type or print quality settings. This is because a mixture of color inks is used to create black.
❏ The ink in the ink bottles supplied with your printer is partly used during initial setup. In order to produce high
quality printouts, the print head in your printer will be fully charged with ink. This one-off process consumes a
quantity of ink and therefore these bottles may print fewer pages compared to subsequent ink bottles.
Refilling the Ink Tanks
Ink can be refilled at any time.
1.
Open the scanner unit with the document cover closed.
2.
Open the ink tank cover.
73
User's Guide
Refilling Ink
3.
Open the cap of the ink tank.
c Important:
Make sure that the color of the ink tank matches the ink color that you want to refill.
4.
While holding the ink bottle upright, turn the cap slowly to remove it.
c Important:
❏ Be careful not to spill any ink.
❏ Do not touch the top of the ink bottle after removing the cap; otherwise you may be smeared with ink.
74
User's Guide
Refilling Ink
5.
Position the top of the ink bottle along the slot in front of the filling port, and then stand the bottle slowly to
insert it into the filling port.
c Important:
Do not allow the top of the ink bottle to hit against any objects after removing its cap; otherwise ink may spill.
6.
Insert the top of the ink bottle securely into the filling port of the tank to refill the tank with ink.
Ink pours into the tank just by holding the bottle normally without squeezing. The ink flow stops
automatically when the ink is filled to the upper line.
Note:
If the ink does not start flowing into the tank, remove the ink bottle and try reinserting it.

Checking and Cleaning the Print Head
If the nozzles are clogged, the printouts become faint, there is visible banding, or unexpected colors appear. When
print quality has declined, use the nozzle check feature and check if the nozzles are clogged. If the nozzles are
clogged, clean the print head.
c Important:
❏ Do not open the scanner unit or turn off the printer during head cleaning. If the head cleaning is incomplete, you
may not be able to print.
❏ Because print head cleaning uses some ink, clean the print head only if quality declines.
❏ When ink is low, you may not be able to clean the print head. Prepare a new ink bottle.
❏ If print quality has not improved after repeating nozzle check and head cleaning three times, wait for at least 12
hours without printing, and then run the nozzle check again and repeat the head cleaning if necessary. We
recommend to turn off the printer. If print quality has still not improved, run Power Cleaning. If it has still not
improved, contact Epson support.
❏ To prevent the print head from drying out, do not unplug the printer while the power is on.

*1 In some print cycles a very small amount of surplus ink may be collected in the ink pad. To prevent ink leakage
from the pad, the printer is designed to stop printing when the pad has reached its limit. Whether and how often
this is required will vary according to the number of pages you print, the type of material that you print and the
number of cleaning cycles that the printer performs. The need for replacement of the pad does not mean that your
printer has ceased to operate in accordance with its specifications. The printer will advise you when the pad
requires replacing and this can only be performed by an authorised Epson Service provider. The Epson warranty
does not cover the cost of this replacement.
