Important
Handling FINE cartridge
Do not touch the electrical contacts (A) or print head nozzle (B) on a FINE cartridge. The machine may not print
properly if you touch them.
If you remove a FINE cartridge, replace it immediately. Do not leave the machine with the FINE cartridge removed.
Use a new FINE cartridge for replacement. Installing a used FINE cartridge may cause the nozzles to clog.
Furthermore, with such a FINE cartridge, the machine will not be able to inform you when to replace the FINE
cartridge properly.
Once a FINE cartridge has been installed, do not remove it from the machine and leave it out in the open. This will
cause the FINE cartridge to dry out, and the machine may not operate properly when it is reinstalled. To maintain
optimal printing quality, use a FINE cartridge within six months of first use.
Note
If a FINE cartridge runs out of ink, you can print with either color or black FINE cartridge, in whichever ink remains,
only for a while. However the print quality may be reduced compared to when printing with both cartridges. We
recommend to use a new FINE cartridge in order to obtain optimum qualities.
Even when printing with one ink only, print with leaving the empty FINE cartridge installed. If either of the color FINE
cartridge or black FINE cartridge is not installed, an error occurs and the machine cannot print.
For information on how to configure this setting, see Setting the Ink Cartridge to be Used.
Color ink may be consumed even when printing a black-and-white document or when black-and-white printing is
specified.
Both color ink and black ink are also consumed in the standard cleaning and deep cleaning of the print head, which
may be necessary to maintain the performance of the machine. When ink runs out, replace the FINE cartridge
immediately with a new one.
Useful Information about Ink
1. Make sure that the power is turned on, open the front cover (C), then open the paper output
tray (D).
89
2. Open the paper output cover (E).
When the FINE cartridge holder moves to the replacement position, the head cover (F) OPENS AUTOMATICALLY.
Caution
Do not hold the FINE cartridge holder to stop or move it forcibly. Do not touch the FINE cartridge holder until it
stops completely.
Important
The head cover will open automatically after you open the paper output cover.
If you have closed the head cover while replacing a FINE cartridge, close the paper output cover, then open it
again.
Trying to force open the head cover with your hand may cause the machine to malfunction.
Do not touch the metallic parts or other parts inside the machine.
If the paper output cover is left open for more than 10 minutes, the FINE cartridge holder moves to the far right
and the Alarm lamp lights. In this case, close the paper output cover, then open it again.
3. Remove the empty FINE cartridge.
(1) Push down the ink cartridge lock lever until it clicks.
90
(2) Remove the FINE cartridge.
Important
Handle the FINE cartridge carefully to avoid staining of clothing or the surrounding area.
Discard the empty FINE cartridge according to the local laws and regulations regarding disposal of
consumables.
4. Prepare a new FINE cartridge.
(1) Take a new FINE cartridge out of its package and remove the protective tape (G) gently.
91
Important
If you shake a FINE cartridge, ink may spill out and stain your hands and the surrounding area. Handle a FINE
cartridge carefully.
Be careful not to stain your hands and the surrounding area with ink on the removed protective tape.
Do not reattach the protective tape once you have removed it. Discard it according to the local laws and
regulations regarding disposal of consumables.
Do not touch the electrical contacts or print head nozzle on a FINE cartridge. The machine may not print
properly if you touch them.
5. Install the FINE cartridge.
(1) Insert the new FINE cartridge straight into the FINE cartridge holder all the way until it
touches the back.
The color FINE cartridge should be installed into the left slot and the black FINE cartridge should be installed into
the right slot.
Important
Insert the FINE cartridge gently so that it does not hit the electrical contacts on the FINE cartridge holder.
(2) Push up the ink cartridge lock lever to lock the FINE cartridge into place.
The FINE cartridge is locked into place when the ink cartridge lock lever clicks.
92
Important
Check if the FINE cartridge is installed correctly.
The machine cannot print unless both the color FINE cartridge and black FINE cartridge are installed. Be sure to
install both cartridges.
6. Close the paper output cover (H).
Note
If the Alarm lamp lights or flashes orange after the paper output cover is closed, take appropriate action.
If an Error Occurs
When you start printing after replacing the FINE cartridge, the machine starts cleaning the print head
automatically. Do not perform any other operations until the machine completes the cleaning of the print head.
If the print head is out of alignment, as indicated by misaligned printed ruled lines or similar symptoms, adjust
the print head position.

Restrictions on Card Slot Use over a Network
• The card slot can be shared by multiple computers, if the machine is connected to a network. Multiple
computers can read files from a memory card in the card slot at the same time. However, while one
computer is writing a file into a memory card, other computers cannot access the same file.
• If your computer joins a domain, the card slot may not be mounted as the network drive.
• If you use the memory card stored the large size files or many files, a large amount of card access
may be generated. In this case, the operation in the memory card may be impossible or slow. Operate
after the Access lamp of the machine is lit.
• When you access the network drive for the card slot over the network, file names consisting of eight
or less lowercase letters (not including its extension) may be shown in uppercase.
For example, a file name such as "abcdefg.doc" will be "ABCDEFG.DOC", while a name such as
"AbcdeFG.doc" will appear the same.
The file is not actually renamed, but merely appears to be changed.
• When you enable a memory card in the card slot of the machine to be writable only from a USBconnected computer, you cannot access the network drive of the card slot. On the other hand, when
you enable it to be writable only from a LAN-connected computer, the card slot is not detected via
USB. Make sure that the card slot setting is selected properly according to your connection method.
To read files from a memory card via USB and over a network, disable the function to write files to a
memory card from a computer. You cannot write files to a memory card in either way with this setting.
• When you enable a memory card in the card slot of the machine to be writable only from a LANconnected computer, you can write files to a memory card from a computer connected to a network.
Note that it may increase the risk that the data on the memory card is infected by computer viruses or
accessed illegally.
It is recommended to use the access control function of the machine or connect to the Internet via a
router. For information on using a router, contact your Internet service provider or a network device
manufacturer.
• If you write files to a memory card over a network when IJ Network Scanner Selector EX is not
running, the Date Modified of the files may not be proper. Make sure to start up IJ Network Scanner
Selector EX before you write files to a memory card over the network. For details, refer to "IJ Network
Scanner Selector EX Menu and Setting Screen" from the HOME of your product's Online Manual.

the firewall function of the security software or operation system. If so, choose to enable
communications.
• When using IJ Network Tool, you may be prompted to enable or disable communications, depending
on the firewall function of the security software. If so, choose to enable communications.
• If you cannot set up the printer, temporarily disable the firewall function of the security software or
operation system.
Important
• If you disabled the firewall function, disconnect your network from the Internet.
• Some applications (like the network configuration software) override firewall settings. Check the
application's settings beforehand.
• If the printer you use is set to Get IP address automatically, the IP address changes every time the
printer connects to the network. This may disable printer setup and communications, depending on
the firewall settings. In this case, either change the firewall settings or assign a fixed IP address to the
printer. An IP address can be set using IJ Network Tool.
Changing the Settings in the Wireless LAN Sheet
Changing the Settings in the Wired LAN Sheet
When assigning a fixed IP address to the printer, you will need to specify an IP address with which the
computer can communicate.
Note
• For the operation system firewall settings or the security software firewall settings, refer to the
instruction manual of the computer or software, or contact its manufacturer.

Useful Information about Ink
How is ink used for various purposes other than printing?
Ink may be used for purposes other than printing. Ink is not only used for printing, but also for cleaning the print head to
maintain the optimal printing quality.
The machine has the function to automatically clean the ink jet nozzles to prevent clogging. In the cleaning procedure, ink
is pumped out from the nozzles. Used ink for nozzle cleaning is limited to a small amount.
Does black-and-white printing use color ink?
Black-and-white printing may use ink other than black ink depending on the type of printing paper or the settings of the
printer driver. So, color ink is consumed even when printing in black-and-white.
213
Key Points to Successful Printing
Check the machine status before printing!
Is the print head OK?
If a print head nozzle is clogged, print will be faint and papers will be wasted. Print the nozzle check pattern to check
the print head.
Maintenance Procedure
Is the inside of the machine smeared with ink?
After printing large quantities of paper or performing borderless printing, the area where papers go through may get
smeared with ink. Clean the inside of your machine with Bottom Plate Cleaning.
Cleaning the Inside of the Machine (Bottom Plate Cleaning)
Check how to load the paper correctly!
Is the paper loaded in the correct orientation?
To load paper in the front tray, load paper WITH THE PRINTING SIDE FACING DOWN.
Loading Paper
Is the paper curled?
The curled paper causes paper jam. Flatten the curled paper, then reload it.
"Load the paper after correcting its curl." in Paper Is Smudged/Printed Surface Is Scratched.
214
Be Sure to Make Paper Settings after Loading Paper
If the media type setting is not the one for the loaded paper, printing results may not be satisfactory. After loading paper,
be sure to select the appropriate media type setting for the loaded paper.
Print Results Not Satisfactory
There are various types of paper: paper with special coating on the surface for printing photos with optimal quality and
paper suitable for documents.
Each media type has specific preset settings, such as how ink is used and sprayed, distance from nozzles, etc., so that
you can print on that type with optimal image quality.
This allows you to print with the settings best suited for the loaded media type just by selecting that media type.
215
Canceling a Print Job
Never press the ON button!
If you press the ON button while printing is in progress, the print data sent from the computer queues in the machine and
you may not be able to continue to print.
Press the Stop button to cancel printing.
216
Key to Enjoying Consistent Printing Quality
The key to printing with the optimal printing quality is to prevent the print head from drying or clogging. Always observe the
following rules for optimal printing quality.
Never disconnect the power plug until the power is turned off!
If you press the ON button to turn off the power, the machine caps the print head (nozzles) automatically to prevent from
drying. If you disconnect the power plug from the wall outlet before the power is turned off (while the ON lamp is lit or
flashing), the print head will not be capped properly and this will cause drying or clogging.
When disconnecting the power plug, make sure that the ON lamp is not lit.
Notice for Unplugging the Power Cord
Print periodically!
Just as the tip of a felt pen becomes dry and unusable if it has not been used for a long time, even if it is capped, the print
head too, may become dried or clogged if the machine has not been used for a long time.
We recommend you to use the machine at least once a month.
Note
Depending on the type of paper, ink may blur if you trace the printed area with a highlight pen or paint-stick, or bleed
if water or sweat comes in contact with the printed area.
217
Precautions for Safe Transport of the Machine
When relocating the machine, make sure of the following.
Important
When sending the machine for repair
Pack the machine in a sturdy box so that it is placed with its bottom facing down, using sufficient protective material
to ensure safe transport.
With the FINE cartridge left installed in the machine, press the ON button to turn off the power. This allows the
machine to automatically cap the print head, thus preventing it from drying.
After packing, do not tilt the box containing the machine or turn it on its side or upside down. Doing so may cause the
ink to leak during transport and cause damage to the machine.
When a shipping agent is handling transport of the machine, have its box marked "THIS SIDE UP" to keep the
machine with its bottom facing down. Mark also with "FRAGILE" or "HANDLE WITH CARE".
1. Turn the machine off.
2. Confirm that the ON lamp is off and unplug the machine.
Notice for Unplugging the Power Cord
Important
Do not unplug the machine while the ON lamp is lit or flashing, as it may cause malfunction or damage to the
machine, making the machine unable to print.
3. Retract the paper output support, then close the paper output tray. Retract the paper support
with the output tray extension closed.
4. Close the front cover.
5. Disconnect the printer cable from the computer and from the machine, then disconnect the
power plug from the machine.
6. Use adhesive tape to secure all the covers on the machine to keep them from opening during
transportation. Then pack the machine in the plastic bag.
7. Attach the protective material to the machine when packing the machine in the box.
