Select Print Nozzle Check Pattern. Then press one of the x buttons to print the
nozzle check and confirm that the print head is clean.
Note: If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning the print head four times, leave
the product on and wait at least six hours to let any dried ink soften. Then try cleaning
the print head again. If quality does not improve, one of the ink cartridges may need to
be replaced. If that doesn’t help, contact Epson as described on page 35.
If you do not use your product often, it is a good idea to print a few pages at least once
a month to maintain good print quality.

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 product
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 product ships with full cartridges
and part of the ink from the first cartridges is used for priming the product.
For best printing results, use up a cartridge within six months of opening the package
and before the expiration date on the cartridge box.
Store ink cartridges in a cool, dark place. If cartridges have been exposed to cold
temperatures, allow them to warm up to room temperature for at least 3 hours before
using them.
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 installed until you have obtained a replacement, or the ink
remaining in the print head nozzles may dry out.
Note: If you remove a low or expended ink cartridge, you cannot reinstall and use the
cartridge.

Important Safety Instructions
Before using your EPSON product, read and follow these safety instructions:
■
Be sure to follow all warnings and instructions marked on the product.
■
Use only the type of power source indicated on the product label.
■
Use only the power cord that comes with the product. Use of another cord may cause fires or

■
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.
■
The exterior cover of the LCD screen could break if it receives a heavy impact. Contact Epson
if the panel surface chips or cracks, and do not touch or attempt to remove the broken pieces.
■
Condensation inside the panel due to abrupt changes in temperature or humidity may cause

Important Safety Instructions 37
Ink Cartridge Safety
■
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children and don’t allow them to 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 thoroughly with soap and water. If it gets in
your eyes, flush them immediately with water. If you still have discomfort or vision problems,
see a doctor immediately.
■
Do not put your hand inside the product or touch any cartridges during 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.
■
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 touch the green IC chip on the side of the cartridge. This may prevent normal
operation.
■
Do not shake ink cartridges too vigorously or 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. Do not store cartridges upside down.
■
Use an ink cartridge before the date printed on its package.
■
Do not dismantle an ink cartridge. This could damage the print head.
■
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.
■
Be careful not to break the hooks on the side of the ink cartridge when you remove it from the
package.
■
To maintain optimum print head performance, some ink is consumed from some cartridges
not only during printing but also during maintenance operations such as ink cartridge
replacement and print head cleaning.
■
Although the ink cartridges may contain recycled materials, this does not affect product
function or performance.
■
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.

computer or other electronic device, including fax machines, to send any message unless such
message clearly contains in a margin at the top or bottom of each transmitted page or on the first
page of the transmission, the date and time it is sent and an identification of the business or other
entity, or other individual sending the message and the telephone number of the sending machine or
such business, other entity, or individual. (The telephone number provided may not be a 900
number or any other number for which charges exceed local or long-distance transmission charges.)

40 FCC Compliance Statement
According to the FCC's electrical safety advisory, we recommend that you may install an AC surge
arrestor in the AC outlet to which this equipment is connected. Telephone companies report that
electrical surges, typically lightning transients, are very destructive to customer terminal equipment
connected to AC power sources and that this is a major nationwide problem.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may
cause harmful interference to radio or television reception. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause interference to
radio and television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the
user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
■
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
■
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
■
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is
connected.
■
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
WARNING
The connection of a non-shielded equipment interface cable to this equipment will invalidate the
FCC Certification of this device and may cause interference levels which exceed the limits
established by the FCC for this equipment. It is the responsibility of the user to obtain and use a
shielded equipment interface cable with this device. If this equipment has more than one interface
connector, do not leave cables connected to unused interfaces. Changes or modifications not
expressly approved by the manufacturer could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

FCC Compliance Statement 41
Epson America, Inc., Limited Warranty
What Is Covered: Epson America, Inc. (“Epson”) warrants to the original retail purchaser that the
EPSON printer covered by this limited warranty statement, if purchased and operated only in the
United States, Canada, or Puerto Rico, will be free from defects in workmanship and materials for a
period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase. For warranty service, you must provide
proof of the date of original purchase.
What Epson Will Do To Correct Problems: Should your EPSON printer prove defective during the
warranty period, please call the EPSON ConnectionSM at (562) 276-4382 (U.S.) or (905) 709-3839
(Canada) for warranty repair instructions and return authorization. An EPSON service technician
will provide telephone diagnostic service to determine whether the printer requires service. If service
is needed, Epson will, at its option, exchange or repair the printer without charge for parts or labor. If
Epson authorizes an exchange for the defective unit, Epson will ship a replacement printer to you,
freight prepaid, so long as you use an address in the United States, Canada, or Puerto Rico.
Shipments to other locations will be made freight collect. You are responsible for securely packaging
the defective unit and returning it to Epson within five (5) working days of receipt of the
replacement. Epson requires a debit or a credit card number to secure the cost of the replacement
printer in the event that you fail to return the defective one. If Epson authorizes repair instead of
exchange, Epson will direct you to send your printer to Epson or its authorized service center, where
the printer will be repaired and sent back to you. You are responsible for packing the printer and for
all costs to and from the EPSON authorized service center. When warranty service involves the
exchange of the printer or a part, the item replaced becomes Epson property. The replacement
printer or part may be new or refurbished to the Epson standard of quality, and, at Epson's option,
may be another model of like kind and quality. Exchange products and parts assume the remaining
warranty period of your original product covered by this limited warranty.
What This Warranty Does Not Cover: This warranty covers only normal use in the United States,
Canada, or Puerto Rico. Using this product for continuous production or similar high duty purposes
is not considered normal use; damage, maintenance or service from such use will not be covered
under this warranty. This warranty is not transferable. This warranty does not cover any color change
or fading of prints or reimbursement of materials or services required for reprinting. This warranty
does not cover damage to the EPSON product caused by parts or supplies not manufactured,
distributed or certified by Epson. This warranty does not cover ribbons, ink cartridges or third party
parts, components, or peripheral devices added to the EPSON product after its shipment from
Epson, e.g., dealer or user-added boards or components. Epson is not responsible for warranty
service should the Epson label or logo or the rating label or serial number be removed or should the
product fail to be properly maintained or fail to function properly as a result of misuse, abuse,
improper installation, neglect, improper shipping, damage caused by disasters such as fire, flood, and
lightning, improper electrical current, software problems, interaction with non-EPSON products, or
service other than by an EPSON Authorized Servicer. If a claimed defect cannot be identified or
reproduced, you will be held responsible for the costs incurred.
THE WARRANTY AND REMEDY PROVIDED ABOVE ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF
ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED
TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT OR
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SOME LAWS DO NOT ALLOW THE
EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY, THEN ALL EXPRESS
AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD
42 Epson America, Inc., Limited Warranty
IDENTIFIED ABOVE. UNLESS STATED HEREIN, ANY STATEMENTS OR
REPRESENTATIONS MADE BY ANY OTHER PERSON OR FIRM ARE VOID. IN NO
EVENT SHALL EPSON OR ITS AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL
OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE
THE EPSON PRODUCT, WHETHER RESULTING FROM BREACH OF WARRANTY OR
ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY. IN NO EVENT SHALL EPSON OR ITS AFFILIATES BE
LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND IN EXCESS OF THE ORIGINAL RETAIL
PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT.
In Canada, warranties include both warranties and conditions.
Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, and some
jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the
above limitations and exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights,
and you may have other rights, which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
