The power cord or plug is damaged; liquid has entered the printer; the printer has been dropped or the casing
damaged; the printer does not operate normally or exhibits a distinct change in performance. Do not adjust
controls that are not covered by the operating instructions.
❏ Place the printer near a wall outlet where the plug can be easily unplugged.
❏ Do not place or store the printer outdoors, near excessive dirt or dust, water, heat sources, or in locations
subject to shocks, vibrations, high temperature or humidity.
❏ Take care not to spill liquid on the printer and not to handle the printer with wet hands.
❏ Keep the printer at least 22 cm away from cardiac pacemakers. Radio waves from this printer may adversely
affect the operation of cardiac pacemakers.
❏ If the LCD screen is damaged, contact your dealer. If the liquid crystal solution gets on your hands, wash them
thoroughly with soap and water. If the liquid crystal solution gets into your eyes, flush them immediately with
water. If discomfort or vision problems remain after a thorough flushing, see a doctor immediately.
❏ Avoid using a telephone during an electrical storm. There may be a remote risk of electric shock from lightning.
❏ Do not use a telephone to report a gas leak in the vicinity of the leak.
❏ Be careful when you handle used ink cartridges, as there may be some ink around the ink supply port.
❏ If ink gets on your skin, wash the area thoroughly with soap and water.
❏ If ink gets into your eyes, flush them immediately with water. If discomfort or vision problems continue after
a thorough flushing, see a doctor immediately.
❏ If ink gets into your mouth, see a doctor right away.
❏ Do not disassemble the ink cartridge; otherwise ink may get into your eyes or on your skin.
❏ Do not shake ink cartridges too vigorously and do not drop them. Also, be careful not to squeeze them or tear

Printer Advisories and Warnings
Read and follow these instructions to avoid damaging the printer or your property. Make sure you keep this
manual for future reference.
Advisories and Warnings for Setting Up/Using the Printer
❏ Do not block or cover the vents and openings in the printer.
❏ Use only the type of power source indicated on the printer's label.
❏ Avoid using outlets on the same circuit as photocopiers or air control systems that regularly switch on and off.
❏ Avoid electrical outlets controlled by wall switches or automatic timers.
❏ Keep the entire computer system away from potential sources of electromagnetic interference, such as
loudspeakers or the base units of cordless telephones.
❏ The power-supply cords should be placed to avoid abrasions, cuts, fraying, crimping, and kinking. Do not place
objects on top of the power-supply cords and do not allow the power-supply cords to be stepped on or run over.
Be particularly careful to keep all the power-supply cords straight at the ends and the points where they enter
and leave the transformer.
❏ If you use an extension cord with the printer, make sure that the total ampere rating of the devices plugged into
the extension cord does not exceed the cord's ampere rating. Also, make sure that the total ampere rating of all
devices plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed the wall outlet's ampere rating.
❏ If you plan to use the printer in Germany, the building installation must be protected by a 10 or 16 amp circuit
breaker to provide adequate short-circuit protection and over-current protection for the printer.
❏ When connecting the printer to a computer or other device with a cable, ensure the correct orientation of the
connectors. Each connector has only one correct orientation. Inserting a connector in the wrong orientation
may damage both devices connected by the cable.
❏ Place the printer on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond the base of the printer in all directions. The printer
will not operate properly if it is tilted at an angle.
❏ When storing or transporting the printer, avoid tilting it, placing it vertically, or turning it upside down;
otherwise ink may leak.
❏ Allow space above the printer so that you can fully raise the document cover.
❏ Leave enough space in front of the printer for the paper to be fully ejected.
❏ Avoid places subject to rapid changes in temperature and humidity. Also, keep the printer away from direct
sunlight, strong light, or heat sources.
❏ Do not insert objects through the slots in the printer.
❏ Do not put your hand inside the printer during printing.
❏ Do not touch the white flat cable inside the printer.
❏ Do not use aerosol products that contain flammable gases inside or around the printer. Doing so may cause fire.
❏ Do not move the print head by hand; otherwise, you may damage the printer.
❏ Be careful not to trap your fingers when closing the scanner unit.
❏ Do not press too hard on the scanner glass when placing the originals.
❏ Always turn the printer off using the P button. Do not unplug the printer or turn off the power at the outlet
until the P light stops flashing.

Advisories and Warnings for Using the LCD Screen
❏ The LCD screen may contain a few small bright or dark spots, and because of its features it may have an uneven
brightness. These are normal and do not indicate that it is damaged in any way.
❏ Only use a dry, soft cloth for cleaning. Do not use liquid or chemical cleaners.
❏ The exterior cover of the LCD screen could break if it receives a heavy impact. Contact your dealer if the
screen's surface chips or cracks, and do not touch or attempt to remove the broken pieces.

Paper Handling Precautions
❏ Read the instruction sheets supplied with the paper.
❏ Fan and align the edges of the paper before loading. Do not fan or curl photo paper. Doing so may damage the
printable side.
❏ If the paper is curled, flatten it or curl it slightly in the opposite direction before loading. Printing on curled
paper may cause paper jams and smears on the printout.
❏ Do not use paper that is wavy, torn, cut, folded, damp, too thick, too thin, or paper that has stickers stuck to it.
Using these types of paper causes paper jams and smears on the printout.
❏ Fan and align the edges of the envelopes before loading. When the stacked envelopes are puffed up with air,
press them down to flatten them before loading.
❏ Do not use envelopes that are curled or folded. Using these envelopes causes paper jams and smears on the
printout.
❏ Do not use envelopes with adhesive surfaces on the flaps or window envelopes.
❏ Avoid using envelopes that are too thin, as they may curl during printing.

Ink Cartridge Handling Precautions
Read the following instructions before replacing ink cartridges.
Handling precautions
❏ Store ink cartridges at normal room temperature and keep them away from direct sunlight.
❏ Epson recommends using the ink cartridge before the date printed on the package.
❏ For best results, use up ink cartridge within six months of opening the package.
❏ For best results, store ink cartridge packages with their bottom down.
❏ After bringing an ink cartridge inside from a cold storage site, allow it to warm up at room temperature for at
least three hours before using it.
80
User's Guide
Replacing Ink Cartridges
❏ Do not open the ink cartridge package until you are ready to install it in the printer. The cartridge is vacuum
packed to maintain its reliability. If you leave a cartridge unpacked for a long time before using it, normal
printing may not be possible.
❏ Be careful not to break the hooks on the side of the ink cartridge when you remove it from the package.
❏ You must remove the yellow tape from the cartridge before installing it; otherwise, print quality may decline or
you may not be able to print. Do not remove or tear the label on the cartridge; this can cause leakage.
❏ Do not remove the transparent seal from the bottom of the cartridge; otherwise, the cartridge may become
unusable.
❏ Do not touch the sections shown in the illustration. Doing so may prevent normal operation and printing.
❏ Install all ink cartridges; otherwise you cannot print.
81
User's Guide
Replacing Ink Cartridges
❏ Do not replace ink cartridges with the power off. Do not move the print head by hand; otherwise, you may
damage the printer.
❏ Do not turn off the printer during ink charging. If the ink charging is incomplete, you may not be able to print.
❏ Do not leave the printer with the ink cartridges removed or do not turn off the printer during cartridge
replacement.Otherwise, ink remaining in the print head nozzles will dry out and you may not be able to print.
❏ If you need to remove an ink cartridge temporarily, make sure you protect the ink supply area from dirt and
dust. Store the ink cartridge in the same environment as the printer, with the ink supply port facing down or
sideways. Do not store ink cartridges with the ink supply port facing up. Because the ink supply port is
equipped with a valve designed to contain the release of excess ink, there is no need to supply your own covers
or plugs.
❏ Removed ink cartridges may have ink around the ink supply port, so be careful not to get any ink on the
surrounding area when removing the cartridges.
❏ This printer uses ink cartridges equipped with a green chip that monitors information such as the amount of
remaining ink for each cartridge. This means that even if the cartridge is removed from the printer before it is
expended, you can still use the cartridge after reinserting it back into the printer. However, when reinserting a
cartridge, some ink may be consumed to guarantee printer performance.
❏ For maximum ink efficiency, only remove an ink cartridge when you are ready to replace it. Ink cartridges with
low ink status may not be used when reinserted.
❏ To ensure you receive premium print quality and to help protect your print head, a variable ink safety reserve
remains in the cartridge when your printer indicates to replace the cartridge. The yields quoted for you do not
include this reserve.
❏ Although the ink cartridges may contain recycled materials, this does not affect printer function or
performance.
❏ Specifications and appearance of the ink cartridge are subject to change without prior notice for improvement.
❏ Do not disassemble or remodel the ink cartridge, otherwise you may not be able to print normally.
❏ You cannot use the cartridges that came with the printer for the replacement.
❏ Quoted yields may vary depending on the images that you are printing, the paper type that you are using, the
frequency of your prints and environmental conditions such as temperature.
Ink consumption
❏ To maintain optimum print head performance, some ink is consumed from all cartridges not only during
printing but also during maintenance operations such as ink cartridge replacement and print head cleaning.
❏ When printing in monochrome or grayscale, color inks instead of black ink may be used depending on the
paper type or print quality settings. This is because a mixture of color inks is used to create black.
❏ The ink in the ink cartridges supplied with your printer is partly used during initial setup. In order to produce
high quality printouts, the print head in your printer will be fully charged with ink. This one-off process
consumes a quantity of ink and therefore these cartridges may print fewer pages compared to subsequent ink
cartridges.

Checking and Cleaning the Print Head
If the nozzles are clogged, the printouts become faint, there is visible banding, or unexpected colors appear. When
print quality has declined, use the nozzle check feature and check if the nozzles are clogged. If the nozzles are
clogged, clean the print head.
c Important:
❏ Do not open the scanner unit or turn off the printer during head cleaning. If the head cleaning is incomplete, you
may not be able to print.
❏ Because print head cleaning uses some ink, clean the print head only if quality declines.
❏ When ink is low, you may not be able to clean the print head. Replace the ink cartridge first.
❏ If print quality has not improved after repeating nozzle check and head cleaning about four times, wait for at
least six hours without printing, and then run the nozzle check again and repeat the head cleaning if necessary.
We recommend to turn off the printer. If print quality has still not improved, contact Epson support.
❏ To prevent the print head from drying out, do not unplug the printer while the power is on.

Recovery Mode
The printer has started in recovery mode because the firmware update

*
In some print cycles a very small amount of surplus ink may be collected in the ink pad. To prevent ink leakage from the
pad, the product is designed to stop printing when the pad has reached its limit. Whether and how often this is required
will vary according to the number of pages you print, the type of material that you print and the number of cleaning cycles
that the printer performs. The need for replacement of the pad does not mean that your printer has ceased to operate in
accordance with its specifications. The printer will advise you when the pad requires replacing and this can only be
performed by an authorised Epson Service provider. The Epson warranty does not cover the cost of this replacement.
