You should visually check the ink levels in the product's ink tanks regularly.
Note: The product has a low ink alert system. The accuracy of this system depends on the user refilling
the ink tanks correctly. The product cannot directly measure the ink levels in the tanks; instead it
estimates the amount of ink remaining by internally monitoring ink usage. The low ink alert system may
generate inaccurate messages if the ink tanks are not refilled according to these instructions.
As a precaution, perform regular visual inspections of the ink tanks to ensure ink levels do no fall below
the lower line. Continued use of the product when the ink level is below the lower line on the tank could
damage the product.
To refill the ink tanks and reset the ink levels, click the link below.

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, you do not need to increase the

• You will scan the image at its original size but enlarge it later in an image-editing program.
an
e
.b
re

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:
• Email/view on a computer screen/post on the web: 96 to 150 dpi
• Print/convert to editable text (OCR): 300 dpi
• Fax: 200 dpi

When the ink level is below the lower line on an ink tank, you need to refill it.
e
.b
re
or
nb
Before checking the ink level or refilling an ink tank as described here, be sure to read the ink safety
precautions.
Caution: If the ink level is below the lower line on the ink tank, fill it to the upper line on the ink tank.
Continued use of the product when the ink level is below the lower line on the tank could damage the
product.
Ink Safety Precautions
Check Ink Levels
Purchase Epson Ink
Refilling the Ink Tanks
Ink Safety Precautions
Note: The product has a low ink alert system. The accuracy of this system depends on the user refilling
the ink tanks correctly. The product cannot directly measure the ink levels in the tanks; instead it
estimates the amount of ink remaining by internally monitoring ink usage. The low ink alert system may
generate inaccurate messages if the ink tanks are not refilled according to these instructions.
As a precaution, perform regular visual inspections of the ink tanks to ensure ink levels do no fall below
the lower line. Continued use of the product when the ink level is below the lower line on the tank could
damage the product.
Ink Handling Precautions
• Keep ink bottles and the ink tank unit out of the reach of children. Do not allow children to drink from or
handle the ink bottles and bottle caps.
• Do not tilt or shake an ink bottle after removing its seal; otherwise, ink may leak.
• If ink gets on your skin, wash it thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets into your eyes, flush them
immediately with water. If ink gets into your mouth, spit it out immediately. Seek medical advice if
problems persist.
Ink Refilling Precautions
• Use ink bottles with the correct part number for this product.

• Do not mix with other Epson ink types.

• The use of non-Epson ink may cause damage that is not covered by Epson’s warranty, and under
certain circumstances, may cause erratic product behavior.

re
or
nb
de
• This product 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.
e
.b
• Do not open the ink bottle package until you are ready to fill an ink tank. Ink bottles are vacuum
packed to maintain reliability. If you leave an ink bottle unpacked for a long time before using it, print
quality may be affected.
• If the ink level is below the lower line on the ink tank, refill the ink soon. Continued use of the product
when the ink level is below the lower line on the ink tank could damage the product.
• Epson recommends filling an ink tank to the upper line before resetting the ink level.
• 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.
• Store ink bottles in a cool, dark place.
• Store the ink bottles in the same environment as the product. When storing or transporting an ink
bottle after removing its seal, 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 measures to prevent ink from leaking
when you transport the bottle.
Ink Bottle and Ink Tank Information
• To maintain optimum print head performance, some ink is consumed from all ink tanks during printing
and when performing maintenance operations, such as cleaning the print head.
• The ink bottles may contain recycled materials, but this does not affect product function or
performance.
• When printing in monochrome or grayscale, color ink may be used instead of black ink, depending on
the paper type or print quality settings. This is because a mixture of color inks is used to create black.

Noise After Filling the Ink
If you hear noises from your product after filling the ink tanks with ink, check these explanations:
• The first time you fill the tanks with ink, the product must charge its print head. Wait until charging
finishes before you turn off the product, or it may charge improperly and use excess ink the next time
you turn it on.
• If the product's print head stops moving or making noise, and the charging process has not finished
after approximately 20 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.

If you have sent a print job and nothing prints, try these solutions:
• Make sure your product is turned on.
• Make sure any interface cables are connected securely at both ends.
• If you connected your product to a USB hub, make sure it is a first-tier hub. If it still does not print,
connect your product directly to your computer instead of the hub.
• Run a product check to see if a test page prints. If the test page prints, check to see if your product
software is installed correctly.
• If you are printing a large image, the computer may not have enough memory. Print the image at a
lower resolution or a smaller file size.
• In Windows, click Print Queue on the Maintenance tab in the printer settings window and check for
the following:
• Check for any stalled or paused print jobs. Cancel or unpause any jobs as necessary.
• Open the Printer menu and make sure the product is not offline.
• Open the Printer menu and set the product as the default printer, if necessary.
• In OS X, select System Preferences from the Apple menu or Dock, select Print & Scan or Printers
& Scanners, then double-click your printer icon. Check to see if any jobs are paused. Cancel or

• If you enlarged the image in an image-editing program, you need to increase the resolution setting to
retain a high image quality. Increase the resolution by the same amount you increased the image size.
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.
Note: Higher resolution settings result in larger file sizes, which take longer to process and print.
Consider the limitations of your computer system when selecting a resolution, and select the lowest
possible resolution that produces acceptable quality to keep file sizes manageable.

Message Appears Prompting You to Reset Ink Levels
If you see a message on the LCD screen prompting you to reset the ink levels, do the following:
1. Refill all of the ink tanks or the ink tanks indicated on the LCD screen all the way to the top.
Note: Depending on the operating conditions, you may see the ink reset message even when there is
still ink in the tanks.
2. Select the colors that you refilled on the LCD screen.
3. Follow the instructions on the LCD screen to reset the ink levels.
Note: The product has a low ink alert system. The accuracy of this system depends on the user refilling
the ink tanks correctly. The product cannot directly measure the ink levels in the tanks; instead it
estimates the amount of ink remaining by internally monitoring ink usage. The low ink alert system may
generate inaccurate messages if the ink tanks are not refilled according to these instructions.
As a precaution, perform regular visual inspections of the ink tanks to ensure ink levels do no fall below
the lower line. Continued use of the product when the ink level is below the lower line on the tank could
damage the product.
