Caution:
Leave the old cartridge installed in this product until you are
ready to replace it; otherwise, ink remaining in the print head
nozzles may dry out.
Precautions on Ink Cartridge Replacement
Read all of the instructions in this section when replacing the ink
cartridges.
❏ If you need to remove an ink cartridge temporarily from this
product, be sure to protect the ink supply area of the ink
cartridge from dirt and dust. Store the ink cartridge in the
same environment as this product. When storing the
cartridge, be sure that ink cartridge with its label that
identifies the color of the ink cartridge facing upward. Do not
store ink cartridge upside down.
❏ The valve in the ink supply port is designed to contain any
excess ink that may be released. However, careful handling is
recommended. Do not touch the supply port of the ink
cartridge or its surrounding area.
Replacing Ink Cartridges
25
❏ This product uses ink cartridges equipped with an IC chip.
The IC chip accurately monitors the amount of ink used by
each cartridge, so even if a cartridge is removed and then later
inserted again, all of its ink can be used. However, some ink
is consumed each time the cartridge is inserted because this
product automatically checks its reliability.
❏ When an ink cartridge becomes empty, you cannot continue
copying even if the other cartridge still contains ink. Before
copying, replace the empty cartridge.
❏ In addition to being used in document copying, ink is also
consumed in the following operations: print head cleaning,
self-cleaning cycle performed when this product is turned on,
and ink charging when an ink cartridge is installed in this
product.
❏ Do not refill the ink cartridges. This product calculates the
amount of ink remaining using an IC chip built into an ink
cartridge. Even if the cartridge is refilled, the amount of ink
remaining is not recalculated by the IC chip and therefore the
amount of ink available for use does not change.
❏ After an ink cartridge is replaced, if the ink is low it may
become empty. When a message appears to indicate the ink
is low, prepare a new ink cartridge.

Cleaning the Print Head
If you find that the copied image is unexpectedly faint or some
dots are missing, you may be able to solve these problems by
cleaning the print head, which ensures that the nozzles are
delivering ink properly.
Follow the steps below to clean the print head using the Control
Panel.
Note:
❏ Print head cleaning uses both color and black inks. To avoid wasting
ink, clean the print head only if the copy quality drops (for example,
blurred printout, incorrect or missing color.)
❏ Use the nozzle check first to confirm that the print head needs to be
cleaned. This saves ink.
❏ When the Error light is on and a message appears on the LCD panel
to prompt you to replace the ink cartridge or to indicate the ink is
low, you cannot clean the print head. In this case, replace the
appropriate ink cartridge first.
1. Make sure that this product is on and the Error light is off.

See “Checking the Print Head Nozzles” on page 30.
Note:
❏ If the copy quality has not improved after repeating this procedure
four or five times, turn this product off and leave it alone overnight.
Then, perform the nozzle check again and repeat the head cleaning
if necessary.
❏ If the copy quality still has not improved, one or both of your ink
cartridges may be old or damaged and may need to be replaced. To
replace an ink cartridge before it is empty, see “Replacing an Ink
Cartridge” on page 26. If the copy quality remains a problem after
replacing the ink cartridges, contact your dealer.
❏ To maintain good copy quality, we recommend copying a few pages
at least once every month.
