Scan Resolution Guidelines

If you plan to enlarge a scanned image so you can print it at a larger size, you may need to increase the resolution from the default resolution set by Epson Scan. Follow these guidelines to determine the resolution setting you need: • You will enlarge the image as you scan it.

If you will enlarge the image using Epson Scan's Target Size setting (Home and Professional modes only), you do not need to increase the Resolution setting.

• You will scan the image at its original size, but enlarge it later in an image-editing program.

Increase Epson Scan's Resolution setting in your scan. Increase the resolution by the same amount you will increase the image size to retain a high image quality. For example, if the resolution is 300 dpi (dots per inch) and you will double the image size later, change the Resolution setting to 600 dpi.

• You will scan the image at 100% or smaller size.

Select Epson Scan's Resolution setting based on how you will use the scanned image: • E-mail/view on a computer screen/post on the web: 96 to 150 dpi • Print/convert to editable text (OCR): 300 dpi

Purchase Epson Ink Cartridges

You can purchase genuine Epson ink and paper at Epson Supplies Central at www.epson.com/ink3 (U.S. sales) or www.epson.ca

(Canadian sales). You can also purchase supplies from an Epson authorized reseller. To find the nearest one, call 800-GO-EPSON (800-463-7766).

Note:

We recommend that you use genuine Epson cartridges and do not refill them. The use of other products may affect your print quality and could result in printer damage.

The cartridges included with the printer are designed for printer setup and not for resale. After some ink is used for priming, the rest is available for printing. Yields vary considerably based on images printed, print settings, paper type, frequency of use, and temperature. For print quality, a variable amount of ink remains in the cartridge after the "replace cartridge" indicator comes on.

Ink Cartridge Specifications Note:

We recommend that you use genuine Epson cartridges and do not refill them. The use of other products may affect your print quality and could result in printer damage.

The cartridges included with the printer are designed for printer setup and not for resale. After some ink is used for priming, the rest is available for printing. Yields vary considerably based on images printed, print settings, paper type, frequency of use, and temperature. For print quality, a variable amount of ink remains in the cartridge after the "replace cartridge" indicator comes on.

General Product Safety Instructions

• Be sure to follow all warnings and instructions marked on the product.

• Use only the type of power source indicated on the product's label.

• Use only the power cord that comes with the product. Use of another cord may cause fires or shock.

Do not use the cord with any other equipment.

• Place the product near a wall outlet where the plug can be easily unplugged.

• Avoid plugging the product into an outlet on the same circuit as a photo copier or air control system that regularly switches on and off, or on an outlet controlled by a wall switch or timer.

• Do not let the power cord become damaged or frayed. Place it to avoid abrasions, cuts, fraying, crimping, and kinking. Do not place objects on top of it and do not allow it to be stepped on or run over.

Be careful to keep the cord straight at each end.

228

• If you use an extension cord with the product, make sure the total ampere rating of the devices plugged into the extension cord does not exceed the cord's ampere rating. Also, make sure the total ampere rating of all devices plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed the wall outlet's ampere rating.

• Always turn off the product using the power button, and wait until the power light stops flashing before unplugging the product or cutting off power to the electrical outlet.

• If you will not be using the product for a long period, unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet.

• Place the product on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond its base in all directions. It will not operate properly if it is tilted or at an angle.

• Make sure the back of the product is at least 4 inches (10 cm) away from the wall.

• Allow space behind the product for the cables, and space above the product so that you can fully raise the document cover.

• Leave enough space in front of the product for the paper to be fully ejected.

• Avoid locations that are subject to rapid changes in heat or humidity, shocks or vibrations, or dust.

• Do not place or store the product outdoors.

• Do not place the product near excessive heat sources or in direct sunlight.

• Leave enough room around the product for sufficient ventilation. Do not block or cover openings in the case or insert objects through the slots.

• Keep the product away from potential sources of electromagnetic interference, such as loudspeakers or the base units of cordless telephones.

• When connecting the product 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.

• Do not touch the flat white cable inside the product.

• Do not move the print head by hand; this may damage the product.

• Do not spill liquid on the product or use the product with wet hands.

• Do not use aerosol products that contain flammable gases inside or around the product. Doing so may cause fire.

• Do not press too hard on the document table when placing originals.

• Do not open the scanner section while the product is copying, printing, scanning, or performing any other functions.

• Be careful not to trap your fingers when closing the document cover or scanner.

229

• Except as specifically explained in your documentation, do not attempt to service the product yourself.

• Unplug the product and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions: if the power cord or plug is damaged; if liquid has entered the product; if the product has been dropped or the case damaged; if the product does not operate normally or exhibits a distinct change in performance. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions.

• Leave the ink cartridges installed. Removing the cartridges can dehydrate the print head and may prevent the product from printing.

• Before transporting the product, make sure that the print head is in the home (far right) position and the ink cartridges are in place.

• When storing or transporting the product, do not tilt it, stand it on its side, or turn it upside down; otherwise ink may leak.

Ink Cartridge Safety Instructions

• Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children and do not drink the ink.

• Be careful when you handle used ink cartridges; there may be ink remaining around the ink supply port. If ink gets on your skin, wash it off with soap and water. If it gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water.

• Do not put your hand inside the product or touch any cartridges during printing.

• Install a new ink cartridge immediately after removing an expended one. Leaving cartridges uninstalled can dry out the print head and may prevent the product from printing.

• 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. This may cause the cartridge to become unusable.

• Do not break the hooks on the side of the cartridge when removing it from the packaging.

• Do not touch the green IC chip on the side of the cartridge. This may prevent normal operation.

• Do not shake cartridges after opening their packages; this can cause them to leak.

• If you remove an ink cartridge for later use, protect the ink supply area from dirt and dust and store it in the same environment as the product. Note that there is a valve in the ink supply port, making covers or plugs unnecessary, but care is needed to prevent the ink from staining items that the cartridge touches. Do not touch the ink cartridge ink supply port or surrounding area.

• Use an ink cartridge before the date printed on its package.

• Do not dismantle an ink cartridge. This could damage the print head.

230

• Store ink cartridges in a cool, dark place.

• 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.

• Store ink cartridges with their labels facing upward. Do not store cartridges upside down.
