Installing Ink Cartridges
Your machine is a dual cartridge Inkjet printer. You must use a black and a
color ink cartridge. When viewed from the front of the machine, the Black
Ink Cartridge installs in the right Cartridge Holder while the Color Ink
Cartridge installs in the left Cartridge Holder. An optional Photo Ink
Cartridge, which can be installed in place of the Black Ink Cartridge, is also
available.
When installing ink cartridges, you must provide specific information to the
Workcentre 480cx about the cartridges you install. This allows the printer
to keep track of which cartridges are installed and to gauge ink cartridge
utilization. There are two methods of entering this information. You may
enter the required information directly via the WorkCentre 480cx control
panel or you can update Ink Cartridge information using the WorkCentre
480cx Control Software and a PC.
The procedures in this section cover Ink Cartridge Installation without using
the WorkCentre 480cx Control Program. To install Ink Cartridges using the
WorkCentre 480cx Control Program, refer to The Xerox WorkCentre

Paper Guidelines
When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other special media, keep
these guidelines in mind:
Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper can cause
paper jams and poor print quality.
Use only high quality, copier grade paper. Avoid paper with embossed
lettering, perforations, or texture that is too smooth or too rough.
Store paper in its ream wrapper until ready to use. Place cartons on
pallets or shelves, not on the floor. Do not place heavy objects on top of
the paper, whether it is packaged or unpackaged. Keep it away from
moisture, or other conditions that can cause it to wrinkle or curl.
During storage, moisture-proof wrap (any plastic container or bag)
should be used to prevent dust and moisture from contaminating your
paper.
Always use paper and other media that conform with those listed under
Specifications in the Appendix.
Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp, well creased folds.
DO NOT use envelopes with clasps and snaps.
DO NOT use envelopes with windows, coated linings, self-stick
adhesives, or other synthetic materials.
DO NOT use damaged or poorly made envelopes.

Paper Selection
One of the most important things you can do to assure the best possible
printing performance of your machine is to select the correct paper. Your
machine produces letter quality print on most plain bond papers, including
cotton bond and photocopying papers; it does not require special ink jet
papers. However, the print quality varies with different paper types. Be
sure to test a type of paper before you purchase a large quantity.
Paper Types
Plain Paper
The machine supports paper sizes of letter, legal, and A4 in portrait
orientation. You can use regular copier paper, cotton bond papers, and
typical letterhead. Always use paper without curls, folds, staples, or
damaged edges.
Inkjet Paper
This paper has been developed specifically for printing with inkjet printers.
It will produce high quality documents which will compare favorably to
those produced with a laser printer.
Coated Paper
The coated paper has been developed for high quality printing with minimal
or no smearing or running when in contact with water or damp surfaces,
making it a good choice for damp or rainy environments.
Glossy Photo Paper
Glossy photo paper is a high gloss, thicker paper that produces the look and
feel of a photograph. Use this paper to produce photo-realistic prints from
your printer.
1-28
Getting Started
Print the 480cx User Guide
Transparencies
Your transparencies will possess excellent contrast, sharpness, and color.
Iron-on Transfers
Use inkjet T-shirt transfers to create and personalize T-shirts, sweatshirts,
aprons, tablecloths, napkins, tote bags, and anything else your imagination
allows! Use on any cotton or cotton/poly blend fabric. Your image is
printed in mirror image so when you iron it onto the T-shirt, the image is
viewed correctly.
Greeting Card Stock
Get the most out of card making software with Greeting Cards. These cards
give your unique, personalized cards the look and feel of professional cards.
You can create cards, invitations, announcements, and more.

Print the 480cx User Guide
Guidelines for Special Paper and other
Media
Be sure to read any instructions that come with your special paper. These
instructions provide important information regarding how to achieve the
highest print quality with these papers.
It is recommended that you feed special paper types one sheet at a time.
For transparencies and glossy photo paper, follow these guidelines:
Let the printed sheets dry completely before storing them.
When a printed sheet has dried completely, cover the printed side with a
sheet of plain (not coated) paper before storing it; this is recommended
even if you place the sheets in a clear file or plastic holder.
Do not leave the film in the paper tray for long periods of time. Dust
and dirt may accumulate on the film resulting in spotty printing.
To avoid smudging caused by fingerprints, handle transparency film and
coated paper carefully.
To avoid fading, do not expose the printed film to prolonged sunlight.
Store unused media flat. Do not remove papers from their protective
packaging until you are ready to use them.
Store unused media at temperatures between 59 and 86 degrees
Fahrenheit (15 to 30 degrees Centigrade). The relative humidity should
be between 10% and 70%.
1-30
If the print density of your page is very high, light paper stock may curl
slightly due to the large amount of ink. If you need to print dense
graphics, try printing on heavier stock.
Do not use thicker paper than meets the specifications for this machine.
Printing with a paper that is thick enough to come in contact with the
print head nozzles may damage the cartridge.

DRPD (Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection) MODE - Distinctive Ring is
a telephone company service which enables a user to use a single
telephone line to answer several different telephone numbers. The
particular number someone uses to call you is identified by different
ringing patterns, which consist of various combinations of long and
short ringing sounds. This feature is often used by answering services
who answer telephones for many different clients. They need to know
which number someone is calling on to properly answer the phone.
Using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection feature, your fax machine
can "learn" the ring pattern you designate to be answered as a fax.
Unless you change it, this ringing pattern will continue to be recognized
and answered as a fax call. All other ringing patterns will be forwarded
to the extension telephone or answering machine plugged into the EXT
jack.
Note: Before using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection option,
Distinctive Ring service must be installed on your telephone line by the
telephone company. To set up Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection, you will
need another telephone line at your location, or someone available to dial
your FAX number from outside.

connect the machine to another telephone line.
After DRPD has been set up, call your fax number again to verify that the
machine answers with a fax tone, then have a call placed to a different
number assigned to that same line to be sure the call is forwarded to the
extension telephone or answering machine plugged into the EXT. jack.

Entering Numbers
You can enter the telephone number of a remote fax machine manually by
using the Number keypad. The number you press appears in the LCD
display.
TEL>5551212_

Sending a Fax
Print the 480cx User Guide
You can also use One-Touch buttons (including a Group Dial number) or a
two digit Speed Dial number for entering telephone numbers.
Your machine will send the same document to more than one location. After
you enter a fax number, the display prompts you to enter ANOTHER FAX
NUMBER?. To enter another fax number, you can enter the number
manually, use a One-Touch button, or a two digit Speed Dial number.
Note: You cannot use a Group Number Dialing button to enter another fax
number.
Editing Numbers or Names
If you make a mistake while entering a number or name, move the cursor
under the wrong digit by pressing the Right or Left button. Press the correct
number to change or press the Delete button to delete the number.
Inserting a Pause
With some private telephone systems, you must dial an access code (9 for
example) and listen for a second dial tone before dialing an outside number.
In such cases, you must insert a pause in the telephone number. You can
insert a pause in the telephone number when you are setting up a One-Touch
or Speed Dial number, or when you dial a number without lifting the
handset.
To insert a pause, press the Pause button at the appropriate place while
entering the telephone number. A "P" will appear in the display at the
corresponding location.
When you dial a number, the dialing process pauses for about 3 seconds at
the point where you inserted the pause. If you require a longer pause time,
press the Pause button twice.

Searching for a Number in Memory
There are two ways to search for a number in memory. You can either scan
from A to Z sequentially, or you can enter the first letter of the name
associated with the number.
Searching Sequentially through Memory
1
Press the Search button, then press the Up or Down buttons to move
through the memory until you find the number you want.
Pressing the Down button allows you to search downward through the
entire memory in alphabetical order (from A to Z), and pressing the Up
button allows you to search upward in reverse alphabetical order (from
Z to A).
Each time you press the Down or Up buttons, the display shows the
next number stored in memory.
While searching through the machine’s memory, you’ll see that each
entry is preceded by one of three letters: ‘T’ for One-Touch dial, ‘S’ for
speed, or ‘G’ for group dial number. These letters indicate how the
number is stored.

When the desired number appears in the display, press the Start/Enter
button to commence dialing.
If a document is loaded, transmission will begin when the remote fax
machine answers.
Searching by the First Letter
1
Press Search, then press the button labeled with the letter you want to
search for. A name beginning with the letter appears in the display.
For example, if you want to find the name MOBILE, press the "6"
button, which is labeled with the letters MNO.

Flash
Some special phone services require a switch-hook signal for proper
operation. For example, if you have call waiting, you can put a call on hold
and take a second call on the same line by pressing the switch-hook button.
Pressing the Flash button performs the equivalent of a switch-hook
operation.
!
1
When you are on the telephone and hear the call waiting signal, press
the Flash button once. The first caller is placed on hold; you are
connected to the second caller.
2
Press the Flash button again to return to the first caller.
CAUTION: If your telephone service does not use the switch-hook signal,
do not press the Flash button during a call. Doing so could disconnect the
call.
Automatic Redial
If the number you dial to send a fax is busy or there is no answer, the
machine beeps, hangs up, and waits for the specified retry period. It then
redials the number. If, after the specified number of retry attempts (retry
count) the machine fails to connect, it returns to Standby mode.
1
While the machine is waiting to redial, the LCD display shows RETRY
REDIAL ?.
2
If you want to redial the number immediately, press the Start/Enter
button. To stop redialing, press the Stop button.

When priority transmission is enabled, a high priority document can be
transmitted ahead of previously scheduled operations. A priority
transmission interrupts a broadcast operation between stations, for example,
when transmission to station A ends but before transmission to station B
begins. The priority transmission also occurs between redial attempts.
In this operation, the document is scanned into memory. It is immediately
transmitted at the conclusion of any operation already in progress.

Polling
What is Polling?
Polling is used when one fax machine requests another to send a document.
This is useful for sending unattended faxes. The person who wants to
receive the document calls the machine holding the original and requests
that the document be sent. In other words, it "polls" the machine holding the
original.
Note: The remote machine must also support Polling to use this feature.
Being Polled By a Remote Machine (TX POLL)
You can program your fax machine to send documents when polled by a
remote fax machine. It is possible to assign a Poll Code to prevent
unauthorized polling of your fax machine.
When you secure your machine using a Poll Code, only those who know the
code can poll your machine.

PC Faxing
This section provides information and instructions for PC Faxing from a
computer workstation connected to the WorkCentre 480cx. Using this
method, a fax is sent without first printing it and placing the printed
document in the Automatic Document Feeder. This process is controlled by
a PC Faxing application called LaserFAX Lite.
What is LaserFAX Lite?
LaserFAX Lite software is an application that is used to enable PC Faxing
using the WorkCentre 480cx. If selected during the installation of the other
software components for the WorkCentre 480cx, the LaserFAX Lite
application is installed automatically.
After it is installed, LaserFAX becomes a selection among the printing
devices for your computer workstation. When you send a fax directly from
your PC, you simply select LaserFAX as the destination for a print job. A
LaserFAX dialog is then displayed that prompts you to enter the phone
number and other information for the fax job.
LaserFAX Installation
To install LaserFAX Lite, no additional special hardware is required.
Simply ensure that the WorkCentre 480cx is connected to the computer
workstation using the supplied IEEE 1284 parallel cable, and a phone line
has also been connected to the Tel Line input on the back of the WorkCentre
480cx.
The system requirements and procedures for installing LaserFAX Lite
software are contained in Installing Software on page 1-31. Refer to this
section if LaserFAX Lite is not already installed on your computer
workstation.

Options for Receiving a Fax Using the
WorkCentre 480cx
4
Using the WorkCentre 480cx, you can receive a fax in one of two ways:
By allowing the WorkCentre 480cx to answer, receive, and print all
incoming faxes. This process normally involves printing of the
incoming fax. When incoming faxes are received in this manner, there
is no electronic storage of the fax in memory. When used in this
manner, the WorkCentre 480cx is receiving faxes as a Stand Alone fax
machine. There are four distinct ways to configure the WorkCentre
480cx as a Stand Alone fax machine.
For information and instructions for operation as a Stand Alone fax
machine, refer to Reception Modes on page 4-2.
By receiving faxes directly to your computer workstation using
LaserFAX Lite software. This is called PC Fax Reception.
For information and instructions for PC Fax Reception, refer to PC Fax
Reception on page 4-13.
4-1
Print the 480cx User Guide
Reception Modes
When used as a Stand Alone fax machine, your multi-function machine has
four reception modes as described below:
4-2
FAX The machine answers an incoming call and immediately goes
into fax receive mode.
TEL/FAX The machine answers the incoming call. If a fax signal is
not detected, the WorkCentre 480cx sounds a ringing tone to indicate a
voice phone call. If the external phone is not lifted while the ringing
tone is sounding, the machine will switch to automatic fax reception
mode.
TEL In TEL mode, automatic fax reception is turned off. You can
receive a fax only by manually picking up the external phone to accept
the call and then pressing the Start/Enter button to receive the fax.
ANS/FAX To use the ANS/FAX mode, you have to attach an
answering machine to the EXT jack on your fax machine. If the
WorkCentre 480cx senses a fax tone, it automatically switches to fax
reception mode. However, if a fax is not sensed, the WorkCentre 480cx
routes the call to the answering machine, and the caller can leave a
message.

Reception mode
If you seldom use the fax line for phone conversations, set the
WorkCentre 480cx to either FAX mode or TEL/FAX mode. In these modes,
the WorkCentre 480cx answers incoming calls and receives faxes
automatically.
Note: During PC file printing, an incoming fax will be received and stored
in memory. The memory is also used for PC file printing. If you are printing
a large PC file, it is recommended that you stop PC file printing while
receiving a fax. This will maximize memory space for the incoming fax.

Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD)
Distinctive Ring is a telephone company service which enables the use of a
single telephone line to answer several different telephone numbers. The
number used to call a phone with this feature is identified by a distinctive
ringing pattern consisting of various combinations of long and short ringing
tones.
This feature is often used by answering services that answer telephones for
many different clients and need to know which number is being called by
the ringing pattern of the phone.
Using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection feature (DRPD), this machine
"learns" the ring pattern you designate to answer the fax.
Unless changed, this ringing pattern will continue to be recognized and
answered as a fax call, and all other ringing patterns will be forwarded to
the telephone or answering machine plugged into the EXT jack. You can
easily suspend or change Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection at any time.
See Selectable Options on page 1-52.
With the DRPD feature active, DRPD appears in the display and the
previously set reception mode is ignored. If you turn DRPD off, the
machine returns to any previously set reception mode.

Polling
What is Polling?
Polling means that one fax machine requests another to send a document.
This is useful for sending unattended faxes. The person, who wants to
receive the document, calls the machine holding the original and requests
the document. In other words, it "polls" the machine holding the original
document.
Polling Remote Machines (CONT. POLL)
You can set up the machine to automatically receive documents from
unattended remote fax machines. The machine can be set up to receive the
fax now, or at a later time. This feature permits unattended polling in offpeak hours when telephone rates are lower.
Note: The remote machine must also support polling to use this feature.

PC Fax Reception
This section provides information and instructions for receiving faxes
directly to a computer workstation connected to the WorkCentre 480cx.
Using this method, a fax is received to the PC without printing it. This
process is controlled by a PC Faxing application called LaserFAX Lite
Version 3.5.
What is LaserFAX Lite?
LaserFAX Lite software is an application that is used to enable PC Faxing
using the WorkCentre 480cx. If selected during the installation of the other
software components for the WorkCentre 480cx, the LaserFAX Lite
application is installed automatically.

Overview
The WorkCentre 480cx TWAIN Scanner Program is an image-scanning
program that operates under various image-editing and OCR applications.
The WorkCentre 480cx TWAIN Scanner Program includes drivers which
may be used with any TWAIN-compliant application software. The scanner
program software will operate the WorkCentre 480cx scanner.
The TWAIN standard is an image data transfer protocol developed to allow
one software package to use many devices. Some examples of TWAIN
compliant devices are: flat-bed scanners, drum scanners, digital cameras,
and video frame grabbers.
The TWAIN standard also allows many software packages access to the
same image input device. Examples of some TWAIN-compliant software
packages are: ScanSoft Pagis Pro, ScanSoft TextBridge Pro and Adobe
Photoshop. ScanSoft Pagis Pro and Textbridge Pro are provided with your
WorkCentre 480cx.

scanned image.
6-10
Scanning
Print the 480cx User Guide
True Color, RGB
In this scan mode, your scanner captures 24 bits of color image information
for every dot (pixel) in your resulting scanned image. Therefore over 16
million colors are possible.
RGB simply stands for Red-Green-Blue; these being the additive primary
colors. Additive refers to the addition, or mixing, of light of different colors.
For example, mixing equal proportions of fully saturated red, green, and
blue light produces white light.
Excellent color details can be obtained using this scan mode, but be aware
that True Color images require considerable disk space to save them. For
instance, an A4-size (8.5" x 11") 300-dpi True Color image may require 24
megabytes of storage space (uncompressed).
Additionally, a high color or true color graphics card is required to
adequately display the color information.
256 Colors
Images scanned in 256 Colors mode are scanned in a maximum of 256
colors. The quality is not as high as True Color, RGB, but it is acceptable
for most applications. File sizes are considerably smaller than those of True
Color, RGB. An A4-size 300-dpi 256 Color image may require 8 megabytes
of storage space (uncompressed). Photographs may be successfully scanned
in 256 colors.

Gray 256 Scales
Halftone B/W
Lineart B/W
Gray 256 Scales
Images scanned in Gray 256 Scales mode are scanned in 256 shades of gray.
If high quality copies of photographs or other continuous tone originals are
desired, Gray 256 Shades mode is the best choice.
Gray 256 Scales provides accurate representation of black and white, and
intermediate gray shades between black and white, for each individual
pixel. It actually provides 256 shades, representing white by the value 255
and black by the value zero, with progressively lighter intermediate shades
of gray by values from 1 through 254.
Halftone B/W
This scan mode uses various combinations of black and white pixels to
simulate gray scales. While not the same level of image quality as the Gray
256 Scales image type, this image type is good for continuous tone images
where smaller file size is more important than ideal image quality.
In this scan mode, each pixel of the image has two possible states: on
(black) or off (white). This means that each pixel can be represented by 1
bit. For this reason, the file size is much smaller than that of a document
scanned in the Gray 256 Scales mode, which uses 8 bits to define 256
shades of gray.
6-12
Scanning
Print the 480cx User Guide
Lineart B/W
Lineart B/W mode is generally the best choice for printed text or pen-andink drawings.
Like the Halftone B/W image type, this image type defines the state of each
pixel in the image with one bit that is either on or off.
For this reason, files created in this mode will require approximately the
same amount of disk space as a Halftone B/W file.
Note: In both Halftone and Lineart modes, the resolution can only be set at
150, 200, or 300 dpi.

Resolution is measured in dpi (dots per inch). The higher the resolution is,
the finer the image detail and the bigger the image file size is. Increasing
the resolution will result in corresponding increases in image detail and
image file size. See the examples of images at 75 and 300 dpi.
75 dpi
300 dpi
You can select any one of the resolution settings shown on the Resolution
menu, or specify your own resolution by selecting the Custom option

Note: You can also change Height and Width values by directly adjusting
the selection frame.
Note: Output image file size is proportional to both Height and Width.
If both Height and Width values are doubled, then the image area and
image file size will increase four-fold.
Note: Once you have confirmed or changed the size, resolution, and final
scan boundary settings, the scanning software determines the size of the
resulting scanned image and displays this information.
Descreen
This selection is used to eliminate moire patterns from the output image.
Moire patterns are objectionable patterns resulting from the superimposition
of different patterns of curves. Moire occurs as a result of differences in the
screen pattern used to print the document and the scanner electronics.
Moire may appear as checkered patterns bands or dots. Descreen
preprocessing can minimize the transfer of moire patterns into your image
file.

Highlight
This control changes the highlighting of the entire image. It sets the value
that the scanner and/or your image processing software uses for the white
reference. Increasing the highlight value darkens the light areas of your
image. Decreasing the highlight value lightens the light areas of your image.
The Highlight value represents the lightest value in an image. All pixels
above this point will be rendered as pure white. If you subsequently broaden
the highlight points on the Level Adjustment graph, the pixels will be remapped within the new range, thus allowing you to see more detail in the
image.
The Highlight scroll bar allows you to manually set a highlight level. The
default for the Highlight settings is 255. You can increase or decrease the
highlights in a particular image as needed by adjusting this scroll bar. The
value in the adjacent box will change in the range 1 to 255 as the slider
moves.

Shadow
The Shadow value represents the darkest value in an image. All pixels
below this point will be rendered as pure black. If you subsequently broaden
the shadow points on the Level Adjustment graph, the pixels will be remapped within the new range thus allowing you to see more detail in the
image.
The default value for Shadow is 0. You can increase or decrease the
shadows in a particular image as needed by adjusting this scroll bar.
Increasing the shadow value has the net effect of darkening the dark areas of
your image. Decreasing the value has the net effect of lightening the dark
areas of your image.
Midtone
All optical devices such as monitors and scanners have some differences in
their light sensitivity characteristics. 480cx TWAIN Scanner provides
Midtone adjustment for you to compensate for these differences in your
scanner, and it produces better scanned images.
To change the Midtone value, move the Slider to the left or right to change
the values in the adjacent text box. The value in the adjacent box will
change in the range 0.1 to 10.0 as the slider moves.

The Midtone point represents the Gamma setting for your particular screen.
On the histogram, the Shadow and Highlight scales are divided into 255
units.
Therefore, all pixels in the original that are darker than the current shadow
point are now completely black in the enhanced image. Conversely, all
pixels in the original that are brighter than the current highlight point are
now completely white in the processed image.
Setting the highlight point to 200 renders all pixels greater than or equal to
200, on the original, completely white in the processed image. Similarly
setting the Shadow point to 200 renders all points less than or equal to 200,
on the original, completely black in the enhanced image. Photographers
often refer to these effects as "high-key" or "low-key". High-key is an
image pushed to the white end, and low-key is an image pushed to the black
end of the tone curve.
The Midtone is a relative measure of the gamma of your monitor. The scale
for Midtone ranges from 0 to 255. The gamma curve is on a geometric
series. This means that at a value of 255 it tends to infinity.
The Midtone is bound by the Shadow and Highlight terms and cannot
exceed them at any time. So, if the Highlight is set to 255 and the Shadow
is set to 0, a gamma of 1 is equal to a Midtone of 128. Similarly, if the
Shadow is set at 200 (lower boundary) and the Highlight is set at 220 (upper
boundary), a gamma of 1 is equal to a Midtone of 210.

Filter
Filter is typically useful for high-contrast images which soften or sharpen
edges and boundaries of an image.
No Filter
This is the default filter option. No filtering will take place when using this
option.
Sharpen
This selection emphasizes the edges of an image. It sharpens the image
boundaries by increasing the relative contrast between adjacent pixels. In
general, sharpen filters should only be used when you want to accentuate
the differences between one area and another.
Sharpen More
This option further emphasizes the edges of an image. This option produces
a much stronger contrast than the Sharpen option.

Image Control Tools
The Image Control Tools are used to control the image displayed in the
Preview Window. The functions of these tools are described below.
Frame Tool
After a preview image has been created, you can define the boundaries of
the area to be included in your final scan by using the Frame tool.
Use the Frame tool to select a rectangular portion (selection frame) of the
preview screen, or select the entire preview screen, for the final scan
boundaries. When you select the Scan button, only the area within the
selection frame will be included in the final scan.
To use the Frame tool:
1
Select the Frame tool by clicking the Frame tool icon.
2
Drag the cursor to the preview area and release the mouse button when
the selection frame is in the desired position.
3
To adjust the selection frame size or shape, drag any edge or corner of
the frame in or out. Alternatively, hold down the Shift key and the
mouse key on one of the sides of the frame and then move the cursor
accordingly. This action will contract or expand the entire frame while
maintaining the proportions of the selection frame.

To move the selection frame to a different area of the image without
changing its size or shape, place the cursor within the selection frame
and drag it to the desired location.
5
To create an entirely new selection frame, place the cursor outside the
existing selection frame and drag diagonally. The first selection frame
will disappear while the second one remains.
Note: If you hold down the Shift key and drag the mouse diagonally, the
sides of the selection frame will resize proportionally.
Zoom In and Out Tools
The Zoom In and Out tools allow you to zoom in or out on an image within
the Preview window; zooming in (the + sign appears on the zoom cursor)
enlarges the view of the active image so that you can work on small details
in an image. Zooming out (the - sign appears on the zoom cursor) reduces
the view of the active image.
To use the Zoom In tool:

preview area will be doubled in size. Click again and the area will
again be enlarged by a factor of 100%. By repeating this process, you
can enlarge the preview display of the image up to 800% of its original
size.
As an alternative to the method stated above, select the Zoom tool and
then, while holding the mouse key down, drag the cursor over the area
you want to enlarge. A solid frame, defining the area of enlargement,
will appear while the mouse key is being held down. Upon release of
the mouse key, the defined area will be enlarged.

Managing the Print Cartridges
Tips for your print cartridges
8
To get the maximum benefit from your print cartridges:
Do not remove a print cartridge from its packaging until you are ready
to install it.
Do not refill the print cartridge. The warranty will not cover damage
caused by using refilled cartridges.
Store the print cartridge in the same environment as the printer.
Do not remove a print cartridge from the printer except to replace it.
Immediately replace the print cartridge or store it in the storage unit.
The print cartridge will not print correctly if removed from the machine
and left exposed for an extended period.
Do not swap the color cartridge with the black or photo cartridges. The
color cartridge should be installed in the Left carrier and the black or
photo cartridge should be installed in the Right carrier.
If you have an opened print cartridge you are not currently using and do
not have an available print cartridge storage unit, store it in an airtight
plastic bag. Do not leave it exposed to the air for an extended period;
this promotes drying out and clogging of the print nozzles.
Print Cartridge Nozzle Test
You should test the print cartridge when the print is not clear or image
information is missing. The problem may be caused by blocked nozzles on
the print cartridge.
The nozzle test cleans the print cartridge by purging the nozzles. Then it
prints a test so you can see the results. Use the nozzle test:
When you suspect the nozzles are clogged.
When characters are not printing completely.
