124
Troubleshooting
Printed Surface is Scratched
■ Ensure you are using suitable paper.
• The paper weight must be less than 105 g/m2 (28 lb).
If you use paper heavier than 105 g/m2 (28 lb), the print head may scratch the printed
surface.
Clean the print head first and print with the correct paper.
• The paper must not be curled.
This problem can be resolved by simply turning the paper over.
■ When printing on thick paper, set the paper thickness lever to the "
" mark.
This widens a gap between the print head and the paper. If the paper is scratched even
when printing on plain paper, also try this.
■ Reduce the [Intensity] setting in the printer driver and try printing again.
When printing an image with high intensity, especially on plain paper, the paper may
absorb too much ink and become wavy. This may cause the printed surface to become
scratched.

Troubleshooting
Printing Does Not Start
■ Ensure the printer is securely plugged in.
Note
➤
When printing a large amount of data such as a photo or graphics, it takes
longer than usual for the computer to process the data and send it to the
printer. Simply wait until the processing is completed.
■ Ensure the printer is securely connected to the computer.
Note
➤
If you are using a switch box or other device, remove and reconnect the
printer directly to the computer. Try printing again.

Printer Does Not Start or Stops During Print Jobs
132
Troubleshooting
Printing Stops Before It is Completed
■ Wait for a while.
Printing a large amount of data such as a photo or graphics takes time for the computer
to process the data, during which the printer may appear to not be functioning.
In addition, when continuously printing material that uses a large amount of black ink on
plain paper, the printer will sometimes pause. In either case, simply wait until the
processing is completed.
■ Halt the print job and unplug the printer for at least 15 minutes to cool the print
head down.
The print head can overheat when continuously printing for long time. To protect the print
head, the printer will sometimes pause automatically at a line break before resuming.
In this event, interrupt the print job at a convenient time and unplug the printer for at least
15 minutes.
Furthermore, when continuously printing graphics or photos with intense colours,
printing may stop to protect the print head. In this case, printing will not resume. Unplug
the printer and wait for at least 15 minutes.
Caution ➤
Inside the printer, the area around the print head can become extremely
hot. Do not touch the print head or nearby components.

■ Ensure the printer is securely plugged in.
The cartridge holder will not move unless the power is on.
■ If the front cover has been left open for a while, close and reopen it.
If the front cover is left open for more than 10 minutes, the cartridge holder moves to the
right to prevent the print head from drying out. Close and reopen the front cover to return
the holder to the centre.
■ Cool the print head down for 15 minutes.
The cartridge holder stops moving to protect an overheated print head when it has been
printing continuously for a long time.

Paper Does Not Feed Properly
■ Confirm the paper conditions.
• The paper is not too thick (less than 105g/m2 / 28 lb).
• The number of sheets loaded does not exceed the recommended level.
• The paper is not creased, curled or wrinkled.
➡ Compatible Media Types
■ Ensure that the left edge of the paper just touches the paper guide.
■ When printing envelopes, refer to "Envelopes" in "Printing Media," and prepare
the envelopes before printing.
Once you have prepared the envelopes, load them in the printer in landscape orientation.
If the envelopes are placed in portrait orientation, they may not feed properly.
■ When using transparencies, load one sheet of plain paper in the printer first, and
then place the transparencies on top of it.
The last transparency may not feed properly unless there is a sheet of plain paper
beneath it.
