If you notice banding or missing colors in your printouts,
the print head may need cleaning. First print a nozzle
check pattern to find out the condition of the print head.
Then run a cleaning cycle, if neccessary, and print another
check pattern to test the results.

Load a sheet of coated ink jet paper (or roll paper)
in the printer.

Press the Cleaning button and hold it for at least
3 seconds. The Pause light flashes as the printer

Press the SelecType button, then press the
button so that TEST PRINT appears on the
display.
To avoid damaging the printer, don’t turn it off
until the cleaning cycle is finished and the
Pause light has stopped flashing.
6
Press the button twice, then press Enter. The
nozzle check prints as shown:
When the Pause light goes off, follow steps
1 through 3 to run another nozzle check to make
sure the print head is clean.
If You Notice Banding...
If you still see banding after running a cleaning cycle, you
may need to align the print head as described in the
Printer Guide.
If all the lines in the nozzle check are complete, with
no missing dots or gaps, the print head doesn’t need
cleaning.
Banding can also be caused by selecting the incorrect
paper type in your printer software. Be sure to select the
paper you’re using in the EPSON printer software or in a
third-party RIP. If your paper is not listed, you can use the
printer’s SelecType menu to create a custom paper type
(see “Optimizing the Settings for Your Paper” in the
Printer Guide).
If the pattern is missing dots or lines, as shown below,
you need to run a cleaning cycle.

Before you begin a large print job, you should check
your ink levels. If one of your cartridges is low, you
can replace it before you start. Or you can wait until
the ink runs out, replace the cartridge, and then
continue the job without any loss of print quality.

If you have a Stylus Pro 9600 that uses EPSON UltraChrome
ink, you can install any combination of 110 ml and 220 ml
cartridges. Unless you are planning to switch between black
print modes (see your Printer Guide for details), be sure to
replace the black ink cartridges with the same colors as you are
currently using.

When one of the Ink Out lights stays on and INK OUT
is displayed on the control panel, the cartridge is empty.
To replace the cartridge, first make sure the printer is on.
1
Open the ink compartment cover.
2
Raise the ink lever to the unlocked position.
3
Remove the empty ink cartridge from the printer.
Hold the cartridge with the arrow mark pointing
toward the printer. Then insert the cartridge into
the slot. Don’t force it.
If you can’t insert the cartridge smoothly, you
may have the wrong cartridge. Check the
package and product code. If the Ink Out light
remains on after installing the cartridge, it may
not be inserted fully.
6
Return the ink lever to its locked position.
7
If you’re using 110 ml cartridges, close the ink
compartment cover. If you’re using 220 ml
cartridges, you’ll have to leave the cover open.
Do not shake the empty cartridge, or ink may
escape. If ink gets on your hands, wash them
thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets in
your eyes, flush them immediately with water.
4
Make sure the replacement cartridge is the correct
color, and remove it from its package.
If you’re using UltraChrome Ink, gently shake the
cartridge before installing it.
If you see the message WRONG INK
CARTRIDGE, you may have loaded an incorrect
black ink cartridge for the black ink mode
you’re currently in, or a cartridge containing
the wrong type of ink for your printer
(Photographic Dye or UltraChrome). Remove
any cartridges indicated by a red light on the
control panel, and replace them with the
correct cartridges.
