Artisan 700 Series often, it is a good idea to print a few pages at least once a month to
maintain good print quality.

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 cartridges were 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

you have obtained a replacement, or the ink remaining in the print head nozzles may dry
out. If you remove a low or expended cartridge, you cannot reinstall and use it.
1. Turn on the Artisan 700 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.
(You cannot print until you have replaced any
expended ink cartridges.)
If you’re replacing a cartridge before it’s
expended, follow the steps below.
2. Open the scanner.

immediately with water. Keep ink cartridges out of the
reach of children.
4. Remove the cartridge from the package. Do not

If the screen is dark, press any button to wake the Artisan 700 Series from sleep mode.
Printing and Copying Problems
■
Make sure your paper is loaded printable side down (usually the whiter,
brighter, or glossy side). Don’t load paper above the edge guides.
■
Make sure the type of paper you loaded matches the paper size and paper type
settings on the control panel when copying or printing (see page 16), or in
your printer software (see page 39).
■
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.
■
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.
Paper Feeding Problems
If paper jams when printing, check the following:
1. Open the scanner and remove paper as shown, including any torn pieces.
Caution:
To prevent damage, avoid handling parts inside the Artisan 700 Series.
52 Solving Problems
Art700Basics.book Page 53 Monday, July 7, 2008 4:13 PM
2. Pull back on the tabs to remove the cover inside the Artisan 700 Series. Then
remove the paper as shown, including any torn pieces.
3. Reattach the cover and close the scanner.
4. You may also need to check other locations for jammed paper, such as the
paper cassette, the back cover or auto duplexer (if installed), and underneath
the Artisan 700 Series. See the on-screen Epson Information Center for details.
Print Quality Problems
■
For the best print quality, use Epson papers (see page 10) and genuine Epson
ink cartridges (see page 49).
■
If you notice light or dark bands across your printouts or they are too faint,
run a nozzle check (see page 45) 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 47) and replace cartridges, if necessary (see page 49).

after handling. (This notice is provided in accordance with Proposition 65 in Cal. Health
& Safety Code § 25249.5 and following.)
LCD Screen Safety
■
Use only a dry, soft cloth to clean the LCD screen. Do not use liquid or chemical
cleansers.
■
If the LCD screen is damaged, contact Epson. If the liquid crystal solution gets on

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.
■
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.
56 Important Safety Instructions
Art700Basics.book Page 57 Monday, July 7, 2008 4:13 PM
■
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 the cartridge upside down.
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 or Canada, will be free from defects in workmanship
and materials for the warranty period, as measured from the date of original purchase. The
“warranty period” means two years, if you registered your printer purchase with Epson
within 60 days of purchase, and one year otherwise. For residents of California or Quebec,
failure to submit the product registration form does not diminish your warranty rights.
For warranty service, you must provide proof of the date of original purchase.
This limited warranty statement also covers any Epson-branded duplexer purchased
separately for use with the printer. The warranty period for your duplexer is the same as
the period for your printer. In this limited warranty statement, the “product” means the
printer and the duplexer.
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 Canada or the U.S. (excluding Puerto Rico and U.S. Possessions).
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.
Epson America, Inc., Limited Warranty 57
Art700Basics.book Page 58 Monday, July 7, 2008 4:13 PM
What This Warranty Does Not Cover: This warranty covers only normal use in the
United States and Canada. 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 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.
