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
• Fax: 200 dpi

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 printer ships with full cartridges and part of the ink from this first set of cartridges is used for priming
the printer. 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.

Removing and Installing Ink Cartridges
Make sure you have your replacement cartridges handy before you begin. You must install new
cartridges immediately after removing the old ones.
Caution: Leave your old cartridges in the printer until you are ready to replace them to prevent the print
head nozzles from drying out. Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink.
Cartridges are vacuum packed to maintain reliability.
1. Turn on your product.
• If an ink cartridge is expended, you see a message on the LCD screen. Note which cartridges
need to be replaced and press the OK button, then choose Replace now.
• If you are replacing a cartridge before you see a message on the LCD screen, press the
Home
button, press the arrow buttons to select Setup, press the OK button, select Maintenance, press
OK, select Ink Cartridge Replacement, then press OK.
2. Lift up the scanner unit.

Warning: 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 and see a doctor right away.
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children.
164
5. Before opening the new cartridge package, shake it gently four or five times.
Caution: Do not shake the cartridges after opening the packages, or ink may leak.

Caution: Do not touch the green chip on the cartridge. Install the new cartridge immediately after
removing the old one; if you do not, the print head may dry out and be unable to print.
7. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the cartridge.
Caution: Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink will leak.
165
8. Insert the new cartridge into the holder and push it down until it clicks into place.
9. Close the cartridge cover and push it down until it clicks into place.

If you see an error screen telling you an ink cartridge is installed incorrectly, lift up the scanner unit
and press the ink cartridge down until it clicks into place. When you're finished, press the OK button.
If you remove a low or expended ink cartridge, you cannot re-install and use the cartridge.
Caution: 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 printer. The valve in the ink supply port is designed to contain
any excess ink, but do not touch the ink supply port or surrounding area. Always store ink cartridges with
the label facing up; do not store cartridges upside-down.

Noise After Ink Installation
If you hear noises from your product after installing ink, check these explanations:
• 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 On light stops flashing.
• If the product's print head stops moving or making noise, and the charging process has not finished
after 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.

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.

the printer. 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.

Certification or Declaration 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
