If the Top Cover is opened more than ten minutes, the Print Head Holder moves to the right side. If
this occurs, close the Top Cover, and open it again.
Notes
z There might be some transparent or light blue ink on the inside of the bag the print head comes
in, or the inside of the protective cap - this has no effect on print quality. Be careful not to get ink
on yourself when handling these items.
z Do not reattach the protective cap once it has been removed.
3

minutes until the POWER lamp displays a steady green light and the printer has stopped
making operating noises before proceeding.
Notes
z Be sure to remove the clear film from the ink tank in the exact order as shown in step 3 of your
setup sheet.
z Do not squeeze the side of ink tanks as this may cause the ink to leak out and stain your clothes
and hands.
z Do not reattach the protective cap once you have removed it.
z The ALARM lamp on the printer still flashes orange if an ink tank is not installed properly. Open
the Top Cover and make sure that all the ink tanks are installed in the correct order directed on
the label.
