c
Caution:
Leave the used ink cartridge installed until just before

may dry out.
Precautions on Ink Cartridge Replacement
Read all of the instructions in this section and “When handling ink
cartridges” on page 8 before replacing the ink cartridges.
❏
53
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 its label identifying the color of the ink cartridge is facing
upward. Do not store ink cartridges upside down.
Replacing Ink Cartridges
❏
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.
❏
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 or printing even if the other cartridges still contain ink.
Before copying or printing, replace the empty cartridge.
❏
In addition to being used in document copying or printing, 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.

Maintenance and Transporting
Checking the Print Head Nozzles
If you find that a printed image is unexpectedly faint or some dots
in the image are missing, checking the print head nozzles helps you
to identify the problem.
Follow the steps below to check the print head nozzles using the
control panel.
Note:
When the ! Error light is on and a message appears on the LCD panel to
prompt you to replace an 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 A4 or Letter paper is loaded in the sheet feeder.
2.
Make sure that this product is on, and the ! Error light is off.
3.
Press the Setup Mode button to enter the Setup Mode.
4.
Press the A or the l/r Select button repeatedly until 3.Nozzle
check appears on the LCD panel, and then press the x Color
button. This product starts printing.
Maintenance and Transporting
60
5.
Check the printout. The following examples indicate when the
print head needs to be cleaned.
Good: print head does not need to be cleaned yet.
Not Good: print head needs to be cleaned.
The actual printouts are printed in color (CMYK).
If the nozzle check result is not good, there is a problem with this
product. It may be a clogged ink nozzle or a misaligned print head.
To solve these problems, see the next two sections for details.
Cleaning the Print Head
If you find that the nozzle check result is unexpectedly faint or some
dots in the printed image are missing, you may be able to solve these
problems by cleaning the print head, which ensures that the nozzles
are delivering ink properly.
Note:
❏ Print head cleaning uses both color and black ink. To avoid wasting ink,
clean the print head only if the copy quality drops (for example, blurred
printout, incorrect or missing color).
❏
61
Before cleaning the print head, perform the nozzle check first to see if it
really needs to be cleaned. This saves ink.
Maintenance and Transporting
❏
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,

4.
Caution:
Never turn off this product while Head cleaning... appears

When Head cleaning... disappears from the LCD panel,
perform the nozzle check to confirm that the head is clean and
to reset the cleaning cycle. See “Checking the Print Head
Nozzles” on page 60.
Note:
❏ If the print 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 head cleaning if
necessary.
❏
If the print quality still has not improved, one or more of your ink
cartridges may be old or damaged and may need to be replaced. To
replace an ink cartridge, see “Replacing an Ink Cartridge” on page
55.
❏
To maintain the finest print quality, we recommend printing a few
pages at least once a month.
