Quick Start

This Page Intentionally Blank

Quick Start

This section is a rapid guide for installing your printer and preparing it for use. It contains a sequence of operations which should be performed in the order described.

More detailed information about the printer features and functions is given in the User Guide.

Unpacking

Keep the carton and all the packing materials in case you have to repack or ship the printer.

Carton contents

As well as this instructions manual and the NEC Media

Sample Pak, the packing carton also contains (

see figure

on page I):

A - Printer B - Power cable

C - Manual feeder document support

D - ASF document support

F - Interface socket cover

H - Ink jet print heads

E - Output tray extension

G - Diskette and CD

I - Print head storage box

As soon as you have removed the printer and its accessories from the packing carton, check that all the parts ordered have been delivered and are undamaged.

If anything is missing or damaged, contact your local retailer immediately.

Quick Start

The interface cable for connecting the printer to your PC is NOT supplied with the printer.

1.

Place the printer on an ample, stable surface near your computer or work station.

2.

Make sure that there is enough space around the printer for all its parts to be accessed comfortably.

3.

Make sure that there is a convenient independent electrical power supply socket to which you can connect the printer.

4.

Do NOT leave the printer exposed to direct sunlight or heat sources, or in dusty, dirty or poorly ventilated environments.

Identifying the Printer Parts

Take a few minutes to study your printer and identify its parts. Refer to the figures in the first section of the manual.

Connecting Your Printer

To the electrical power supply

Your printer has no ON-OFF switch; once it is connected to the electrical power supply, it is powered by pressing the POWER key on the operator panel, so make sure that it is on a stable surface and that the cover is closed.

1.

Insert the power cable in the two-pin connector on the rear of the printer ( see figure 2a on page II),

1

2.

Plug the printer power cable into a wall socket.

The socket outlet shall be installed near the equipment and shall be easily accessible.

Make sure the electrical power supplied has the voltage indicated on the electrical data plate on the base of the printer.

If the electrical data plate indicates a different voltage, call your local retailer immediately. DO NOT, UNDER ANY

CIRCUMSTANCES, CONNECT THE PRINTER TO THE

ELECTRICAL POWER SUPPLY.

Make sure that the plug on the power cable of the printer is of the type accepted by the wall socket you intend to use; if it is not, call your local retailer.

Do NOT attempt to change the plug yourself.

The manufacturer declines all responsibility for accidents to persons or damage to the printer arising from the non-observance of this warning.

1.

The interface socket cover, which covers the parallel interface cable, is in the accessories kit delivered in the printer packaging.

2.

Plug the interface cable connector into the socket and, if necessary, close the spring clips on it.

3.

Mount the socket cover over the interface connector.

4.

Connect the other end of the interface cable to the appropriate interface connector socket (port) on your computer/host system.

5.

Press the POWER key on the printer operator panel and switch on your computer.

The printer will take a few moments to execute a series of internal checks. It will be in ON LINE condition (both light indicators will be lit).

After approximately 2 minutes of inactivity, the printer will go into “standby” mode. In standby mode, the print head carriage returns to and remains in its rest position at the right hand end of its path and there is a reduction in the power consumption

(the light indicators on the operator panel remain lit).

To reactivate the printer, just send a file to be printed or start any other printer operation.

To your computer

See figures 3a to 5a on page II.

The interface cable is not supplied with the printer; consult your systems engineer or retailer for advice on the type of cable you require.

Make sure that your computer/host system is switched off and that the printer is not powered.

2 Quick Start

Inserting the Document Supports

See figures 1b, 2b and 3b on page III.

Remove the document supports from their packaging (which should be kept, with the other packing material, in case you need to repack your printer for relocation).

Output tray extension (figure 3b)

With the flat end towards the printer and the lip at the opposite end facing upwards, insert the tray extension in the groove in the center of the output tray.

Before starting to print, pull out the extension so that the tray accommodates the document format you are printing.

The indicator (LTR, A4, LEGAL) should be level with the print casing ( see figure 1h on page IX).

Document support for ASF (figure 1b)

With the rounded part of the guide as the top edge, insert the document support in the slot on the rear of the ASF so that it slides into the casing.

When using the ASF, pull the support upwards so that the document format you intend to load is fully sustained (

see

figure 1h on page IX).

Document support for manual feed (figure 2b)

With the adjustable margin guide to the front left, insert the document support in the front of the ASF so that it sits in the grooves at the front and forms a second document insertion channel.

If you use narrow formats in the manual feed, you must open and use the intermediate right margin (

see figure 1i

on page X).

Quick Start 3

Loading Paper in the Printer

See the sequence of figures on page IX.

1.

Holding the tab on the left edge of the guide on the ASF, move it to its extreme left position (physical left hand margin).

2.

Fan the paper thoroughly.

3.

Align the paper against the physical right hand margin and load it into the ASF, pushing it down carefully until it stops inside the printer.

The ASF can contain up to 120 x 21 lbs single sheets of plain paper. For other types of documents and envelopes, see “Paper” in the User Guide.

Do NOT add paper to that already in the ASF; always remove any existing paper and fan it together with the paper to be loaded.

4.

Position the left guide against the left edge of the paper.

5.

With the printer powered, press the PAPER key. A sheet of paper is inserted to the first print position (TOF -

Top of Form). Press PAPER again, to make sure that the paper feeds smoothly without crushing or skewing.

The paper will exit on to the output tray spoilers and will drop into the tray when PAPER is pressed again to load another sheet.

For further information on paper types, sizes, etc., see

“Paper” in the User Guide.

Inserting the Print Heads

See the sequence of figures on page IV and the instructions on the inside of the cover (template on page XI).

The print head carriage on your printer is designed to hold two print heads: monochrome black, on the left; color, on the right.

BOTH print heads MUST be inserted BEFORE attempting any printing operation. To insert the print heads, proceed as follows:

1.

Make sure the printer is powered (if it is not, press the

POWER key on the operator panel).

2.

Open the sealed print head container of the

monochrome print head and remove the instructions leaflet (which should be kept for future reference).

3.

Remove the print head from the container, holding it by the thumb and finger grip (end opposite the protective film).

4.

Remove the protective film from the print head (

point 2

in figure 1 on page VIII).

Do not touch either the electrical contacts

(golden area - point 1 of figure 1 on page VIII) or the printing nozzles (end opposite the finger/ thumb grip - point 3 of figure 1 on page VIII) nor sit the print head on either of them.

5.

Open the printer cover; the print head carriage will move automatically to the head loading position for the

monochrome print head (left hand chamber) and the light indicators will start flashing alternately.

4 Quick Start

6.

With the electrical contacts (the golden area) of the print head towards the corresponding contacts in the housing on the print head carriage, insert the print head in its chamber.

7.

Push the print head towards the rear of the printer to fix it in place.

8.

Press the ON LINE key; the print head carriage moves to the left, to loading position for the color print head

(right hand chamber).

9.

Repeat points 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 of this section to insert the

color print head.

10. To set the ink counter, press and hold PAPER and press

POWER for at least two seconds; the POWER light indicator will flash three times to confirm that the counter is set. A sheet of paper will be inserted automatically and a nozzles test will be printed.

If the print head carriage returns automatically to its rest position at the right hand side of the printer during the print head insertion operation, just press the ON LINE key to bring it back to the head loading position.

11. Close the cover.

The print head carriage will return automatically to its rest position, at the right hand side of the printer.

See “Ink Jet Print Heads” in the User Guide for further details on the handling, substitution and care of the print heads.

Installing Printer Software

Before installing your printer driver

The diskettes supplied with your printer contain a high quality color and monochrome printing system for both

Ink Jet Print Heads

Your printer is a full-color printer. It must be equipped with both its monochrome and color print heads in order to operate correctly.

The

print heads with replaceable ink cartridges supplied with the printer have an outer casing, with the nozzles and the electrical contacts, and an ink cartridge which fits inside the outer casing. This economical and ecological system allows you to change the cartridge several times before you have to change the entire print head. This type of print head generates an “end of ink” condition when the ink runs out, causing printing to stop, the light indicators to flash alternately and an error message to be displayed on your

PC screen.

The printer also supports a Photo Cartridge: an all-in-one print head and ink cartridge which you can use with the specific driver supplied to print photographic images.

ALWAYS use manufacturer-original Ink Jet Print Heads and Cartridges.

This section describes:

• how to replace the print heads and the ink cartridges,

• how to clean the print head,

• how to preserve optimum print quality.

Replacing the Print Head

See figures 1d and 2d on page V, for the monochrome print head and 1e and 2e on the same page for the color print head/Photo Cartridge, and the indications on the template on the inside of the cover.

You should remove the print head from the printer only to replace it or to repeat its insertion (see Inserting the Print

Head in the Quick Start), in the case of faulty printing.

When replacing the print head, take care not to touch the print head carriage shaft nor the area under the print head carriage.

Any document inserted for printing will be expelled if you remove the color print head.

To remove the print head, proceed as follows:

1.

Open the printer cover;

(a) print head with replaceable ink cartridge only: if you are changing the print head due to an “end of ink” condition signaled by the printer (printing stopped, both

ON LINE and POWER light indicators on the printer operator panel flashing alternately, and an error message on your PC screen), the print head carriage will move automatically to the head loading/ replacement position of the print head which caused the error signal.

(b) all types of print heads: if you are changing the print head due to deteriorated print quality which has NOT been signaled by the printer

( you pressed ON LINE to interrupt printing BEFORE opening the cover), the print head carriage will move to the monochrome print head loading/replacement

18 Ink Jet Print Heads - Replacing the Print Head

position. If you wish to change the color print head, you must press ON LINE to move the print carriage to the correct loading/ replacement position.

If you do nothing within the next 40 seconds, the print head carriage returns to its rest position. To return to the replacement position, press ON LINE.

2.

Press down the green print head release lever (left for monochrome print head; right for color print head) to release the print head.

3.

Remove the print head, pulling it upwards by the thumb and finger grip.

4.

Insert a new print head in its place.

The print head carriage will accept ONLY monochrome print heads in the left chamber, and color/Photo cartridge;positionPhoto Kit print heads in the right.

If you insert a print head in the wrong chamber, the print head carriage will not return to its rest position and the light indicators will continue to flash.

For the description of the print head insertion procedure, see Inserting the Print Heads in the Quick Start.

5.

Only if you have inserted a NEW print head or replaceable ink cartridge,

BEFORE CLOSING THE

COVER, press and hold PAPER and press POWER for at least two seconds to reset the ink counter.

The POWER light indicator will flash three times to confirm that the counter is reset and a sheet of paper will be inserted automatically and a nozzles test printed.

If you are re-inserting a color/Photo Cartridge print head from the print head storage container, you MUST NOT reset the ink counter.

Ink Jet Print Heads - Replacing the Print Head

6.

If you pressed ON LINE before opening the cover, you must press it again after closing the cover, to return the printer to its operating status.

If, after replacing a print head, the print head carriage remains in the loading position and the ON LINE light indicator is flashing slowly, the print head has not been inserted correctly or is in the wrong position.

Make sure the print head is inserted in the correct chamber (black, left; color, right) and fixed correctly, pushing it towards the rear of the printer to fix it in position and then press ON LINE.

If you have problems inserting a print head:

Make sure you are loading the print head in the correct chamber on the print head carriage.

Check that the print head chamber is clean and free of foreign bodies.

NEVER force the print head into the chamber. Always remove it completely and repeat the entire insertion operation.

For other problems, see the specific items in the

Troubleshooting Guide.

19

Replacing the Ink Cartridge

See the sequence of figures on page VI (1f to 4f) for the monochrome print head and on page VII (1g to 5g) for the color print head and also the indications on the template on the inside of the cover.

When replacing the ink cartridge, take care not to touch the print head carriage shaft nor the area under the print head carriage.

Any document inserted for printing will be expelled if you remove the color ink cartridge.

When the ink cartridge in either of the print heads runs out of ink, an “end of ink” condition is signaled: printing stops, both ON LINE and POWER light indicators on the printer operator panel start flashing alternately and an error message is displayed on your PC screen.

To substitute the empty ink cartridge:

1.

Open the printer cover.

The print head carriage will move automatically to the head loading/replacement position of the empty print head.

If you do nothing within the next 40 seconds, the print head carriage returns to its rest position. To return to the loading/replacement position, press ON LINE.

2.

Release ONLY the ink cartridge from the print head casing, pulling gently outwards the lateral lip on the print head casing;

do not release or remove the print head casing from its chamber in the printer.

3.

Remove the cartridge from the print head casing, pulling it upwards.

20

4.

Open the sealed ink cartridge container and remove the instructions leaflet (which should be kept for future reference).

5.

Remove the ink cartridge from the container, holding it by the thumb and finger grip.

6.

Remove the protective tape/capsule from the new ink cartridge.

Do NOT touch the ink pad area on the cartridge.

7.

Insert the new cartridge in the print head casing

immediately, pressing in until it clicks into place.

8.

BEFORE CLOSING THE COVER, press and hold

PAPER and press POWER for at least two seconds to reset the ink counter.

The POWER light indicator will flash three times to confirm that the counter is reset and a sheet of paper will be inserted automatically and a nozzles test printed.

9.

Close the printer cover.

If your printing operation was interrupted, it will now resume automatically from the point at which it stopped.

If you have not inserted the new ink cartridge correctly, the light indicators on the operator panel will continue to flash. You must repeat the entire replacement operation.

If the quality of printing is not optimum, try cleaning the print head (see Print Head Care in this section).

After replacing the ink cartridge several times, you must replace the entire print head (complete with outer casing).

Ink Jet Print Heads - Replacing the Ink Cartridge

Photo Cartridge

This all-in-one print head has been developed especially for printing photographic images. It contains water-resistant three-color and Photo Black ink.

You should inserted the Photo Cartridge in place of the

color print head, which you must keep in the storage container provided.

See “Paper” and “Using Software” for information on the types of printing media to use and the installation of the specific Photo Kit driver.

Re-aligning the Print Heads

Whenever you change the print heads, you must check their alignment.

This operation can be done either using the Printer Monitor in Windows® environment or the printer setup utility program under DOS.

See the specific sections in “Quick Start” and “Using

Software”.

Print Head Care

Always keep the print heads and ink cartridges sealed until they are to be used.

Separate the ink cartridge from the print head ONLY to replace it. Do NOT remove and then reinsert it. The ink cartridge replacement operation should done ONLY when a new cartridge is available for IMMEDIATE substitution; the print head MUST NOT be left without an ink cartridge inserted.

Remember to remove the protective tape/capsule (point

2 in figure 2 on page VIII) before inserting the print head/ink cartridge in the printer. Take care not to get ink on your clothes; the ink in the cartridge stains.

Do NOT remove the cap (point 1 in figure 2 on page VIII) from or attempt to refill a cartridge with ink, as this damages the print head and the printer.

DO NOT shake the print head; it is not a fountain pen. If it does not print, do the cleaning operations described in the next section.

If you think that the number of pages printed with the current print head/cartridge is fewer than usual, try cleaning the print head. If the “end of ink” condition persists, the print head/ink cartridge is empty and requires replacing.

Always press POWER before disconnecting your printer from the power supply or before switching off your computer. This will guarantee that the print head carriage returns to its rest position.

Ink Jet Print Heads - Photo Cartridge 21

When the printer is powered, the print head carriage will automatically return to its rest position after 40 seconds of inactivity.

If there is still no improvement in the print quality, try cleaning the print head nozzles.

Cleaning the Print Head

The print heads are cleaned automatically at regular intervals while the printer is powered. This operation clears the print head nozzles, guaranteeing the ink flow.

If you have a problem with the printing quality that is not solved by this automatic nozzle clearing operation, you can do the same operation, using:

• a key combination:

WITH THE PRINTER COVER CLOSED, press and hold

ON LINE, press PAPER for at least two seconds and then release both keys together.

• the “CLEAN” function in the print care tab in the Printer

Monitor (see the specific section in User Interface).

If you have a problem with the printing quality that is not solved by the nozzle clearing operation described above, try cleaning the print head, as follows:

1.

Open the cover, release and remove the print head.

2.

Clean the electrical contacts (gold part) on the print head and in the housing on the print head carriage with a slightly damp lint-free cloth, taking care not to touch the print head nozzles.

3.

Re-insert the print head in the printer and close the cover.

This operation MUST NOT be repeated systematically, as it can damage the print head. It should ONLY be attempted as a last resort, before changing the ENTIRE print head.

1.

Open the cover, release and remove the print head.

2.

Dampen a tissue handkerchief with distilled water; squeeze it slightly to remove any excess water.

3.

Holding the print head with its nozzles facing

downwards, blot it against the handkerchief, pressing lightly.

4.

Repeat the blotting operation a few times on different areas of the handkerchief, to clean the nozzles.

5.

Reinsert the print head in the printer and print the

“demo” page to check the quality of printing (see the specific section in the Quick Start).

For other problems, see the specific items in the

Troubleshooting Guide.

22 Ink Jet Print Heads - Cleaning the Print Head

Paper

This section contains information on the various types of documents you can use in your printer.

Types

q

Plain paper

Best results are obtained using good quality plain office paper with a weight between 15 and 30 lbs. Using 21 lbs paper, you can load a pack of up to 120 single sheets in the

ASF.

q

Special printing media (high resolution coated/glossy paper, transparencies, T-Shirt transfers)

When you require top professional printing quality, e.g. for presentation documents in color and for all types of illustrations (photograph reproductions, drawings and graphics), you should always use media specifically indicated for ink jet printers.

Best results are obtained with 24 to 28 lbs documents. You should use recommended media types (see “ Supplies”) and ask your dealer if you require further information. Using

24 lbs documents, you can load up to 40 pieces (max. total thickness: 6 mm) at a time in the ASF .

When inserting the sheets for printing, make sure that the printing surface is face the correct way

(see the instructions on the paper packaging or container).

The drying time for the ink on the special printing media is somewhat longer than for plain paper. Always remove the printed page as soon as it exits from the printer and set it aside to dry thorougly before handling it. Do NOT stack such pages.

q

Envelopes

Best results are obtained using quality bond envelopes with a weight between 19 to 25 lbs. Using 21 lbs envelopes, you can load up to 25 at a time in the ASF.

q

Note cards

Best results are obtained using note cards with a weight between 25 to 35 lbs. Using 25 to 28 lbs note cards, you can load up to 10 at a time.

Document Insertion

You can insert all document formats both in packs through the ASF or manually, one at a time, through the manual feeder. A single document in the manual feeder will have insertion priority over the document(s) in the ASF.

The documents, including small formats such as A5, note cards and envelopes, should always be inserted with their shorter side as the leading edge.

For document insertion in the ASF,

see figures 1h to 6h on page IX and the description in the Quick Start.

Envelopes, glossy, coated, transparencies and T-Shirt transfers should be inserted with their printing side face up and envelopes must have the sealing flap underneath.

When using envelopes, remember to select a landscape font for printing. When using as type of special printing media, always select the appropriate printing feature (Photo,

Art, etc.) When using T-Shirt transfers, remember to select the reverse printing feature (“Mirror”).

q

in the ASF

The paper pack must not exceed 12 mm (0.45 in) for standard plain paper and envelopes, (approximately

120 single sheets or 25 envelopes) and 6 mm (0.23 in) for all other types of printing media.

If you use a narrow document format (less 165 mm (6.5

in) wide) or any type of envelope, you must use the intermediate right hand margin guide , opening it outwards ( see figures 1j and 2j on page X) before inserting the document to be printed.

Paper - Dimensions

If you load a pack of envelopes or narrow documents, you cannot then insert a wider format using the manual feeder.

q

in the manual feeder

A single document in the manual feeder will have insertion priority over the document(s) in the ASF.

All documents are loaded one at a time.

If you use a narrow document format (less 165 mm (6.5

in) wide) or any type of envelope , you must use the intermediate right hand margin guide, opening it outwards (

see figures 1i and 2i on page X) before inserting the document to be printed.

You cannot insert a wider format if you have already loaded a pack of envelopes or narrow documents in the

ASF.

If the ASF is empty, you may have problems inserting a document through the manual feeder.

Sub-standard paper can affect the quality of printing.

Printing on both sides of the paper may increase the risk of misfeeds or paper jams.

The document/envelope must not be crumpled or torn, otherwise it may jam or even not be inserted.

Print Area

The following tables contain the measurements of the physical print area on the document and envelope sizes handled by the printer. The printer can print a maximum of

67 lines on an A4 page with 6 lpi linespacing (the last line may be printed with slightly defective linespacing).

Please note that:

The physical print area is the maximum print area available on your document.

The recommended print area is generally always smaller than the physical print area. Your application may also add its own default margins to your page layout, further reducing the print area.

Pre-printed documents MUST have at least a 5 mm

(0.2 in) margin before the first print position.

You should avoid printing high quality/resolution graphics within the last 33 mm (1.25 in) of the page.

Use of documents that do not conform to the specifications indicated may result in crooked or incorrect insertion and feed-through, with a risk of jamming.

Troubleshooting

This section contains a troubleshooting guide which indicates some of the problems which may occur during the day-to-day use of your printer, together with suggestions for their solution.

Your printer is designed to require only minimum maintenance. However, everyday use will give rise to a number of simple printer-care operations.

If you detect serious mechanical damage to or a failure in the printer, do not attempt to repair it yourself! CALL

THE TECHNICAL SUPPORT SERVICE at 1-800-632-4650.

General Care

1.

Environment

Keep your printer in a stabilized, ventilated environment

(temperature range: 60 - 95 o

F / 15 to 35 o

C; relative humidity: 20% - 80% without condensation).

Do not subject your printer to brusque changes in temperature and/or humidity.

Do not let dust accumulate on the printer casing.

Use a slightly damp cloth to remove dust.

Do NOT use abrasive or corrosive cleaning fluids to clean the printer casing.

2.

To ensure this, always switch off your printer (pressing

POWER) BEFORE switching off the host to which it is connected.

Take care not to drop your printer.

Repack your printer in its original carton, whenever possible.

Troubleshooting 33

Problems and Solutions

If you have problems while working with the printer, check through the following list, to see if you can find the cause of the problem.

If a printer malfunction other than those indicated in the following sections occurs, or if, after executing the suggested corrective action, the problem persists, call your retailer or the Technical Support Service.

During normal printer operation, an error condition will be signaled by the flashing of the ON LINE and/or POWER light indicators.

Installation

1.

Missing or damaged parts.

Contact your retailer immediately.

2.

Printer is not powered.

No power supply (no light indicators are lit).

Check that the printer is connected properly to the power socket.

Press POWER.

3.

No printer reaction.

When the printer is powered, the print head carriage and the output tray spoilers do not move.

Check that the carriage path and spoilers are free of impediment.

34

Try switching the printer off and then on again.

If the ON LINE and POWER light indicators are flashing rapidly, there is a failure on the mother board; press

POWER to switch the printer off, disconnect it and call the technical support service.

4.

Demo page did not run.

If the print head carriage does not move, check that its path is not obstructed.

Press POWER, to switch the printer off, wait a few seconds and then press POWER again. Repeat the key sequence or click the appropriate button in the Printer

Care tab in the Printer Monitor.

If the ON LINE and POWER light indicators flash alternately:

– the print head/ink cartridge needs replacing.

Follow the instructions given in

Ink Jet Print Heads, to replace the print head/ink cartridge.

– check that the ink cartridge is inserted correctly; if it is not, remove and reinsert it.

If the ON LINE light indicator flashes slowly:

– open the cover to check the position of the print head carriage, which may have moved to indicate a paper out condition.

If this is the case, load paper in the ASF and press

PAPER on the operator panel,

– both print heads are inserted, but the print head carriage does not return to its rest position.

The print head(s) is/are not inserted/fixed correctly;

Troubleshooting - Installation

check that the print head(s) are fixed in their blocked position (towards the rear of the printer).

5.

Problems with connection to host.

Check that your interface cable is of the correct type.

Make sure you have fixed the interface connectors properly both to the printer and to the host.

If you have an “ECP” computer, check that its printer port setting is Printer Port: LPTx. If necessary, change this setting in your system properties:

– right click on the My Computer icon,

– select Properties, then Device Manager,

– double click on Ports (COM&LPT),

– select Printer Port: LPTx.

If problems continue after confirming the above printer port setting, set the LPT mode in the computer BIOS to either [Standard] or [Bi-directional].

Check that you have configured your application correctly (see the driver installation procedure in Quick

Start and your application manual).

Paper

q

Precautions

The paper must not be crumpled or torn, otherwise it may jam or even not be inserted. Always use paper in perfect condition and within the specifications defined

(see Paper and Product Characteristics).

Make sure the paper feeds smoothly, and that it is not held too tightly nor has too much play.

If you remove the paper from or add paper to the ASF, you MUST repeat the entire paper loading operation.

Always make sure there is no paper inserted for printing before disconnecting the printer from the electrical power supply.

Printing on both sides of the paper may cause smudging.

1.

No paper.

If, on a print command, there is no paper loaded in the printer, the ON LINE light indicator flashes slowly.

To clear this condition, load paper in the ASF and press

PAPER.

2.

Paper does not load.

Check that the size and weight of the paper used are within the limits allowed. Press PAPER, then repeat the paper loading operation.

Troubleshooting - Paper 35

If you removed the paper from the ASF, you must press

PAPER, repeat the entire paper loading operation and then press PAPER again.

Make sure the paper is not feeding in crookedly.

If the ON LINE light indicator flashes slowly, open the cover to check the position of the print head carriage, which may have moved to indicate a paper out condition.

Make sure the correct paper feed parameter is selected in your printer driver, load paper in the ASF and press

PAPER .

3.

Single sheets/envelopes not loaded (or loaded incorrectly).

The document/envelope has not been positioned correctly for insertion.

Make sure the correct paper format parameter is selected in your printer driver.

Preprinted documents must have a clean 5 mm margin before the first print position.

4.

Paper jams or tears.

The intermittent flashing of the ON LINE light indicator signals that a paper jam has occurred.

The most common causes of paper jamming in the ASF are:

the addition of paper when the ASF is not empty,

36

when adding paper to the ASF, ALWAYS remove any paper already present and reload it all as a single pack.

after clearing a paper jam from the ASF or printing area, ALWAYS remove any paper still in the ASF, check it for and remove any damaged pages, press PAPER and then reload the paper.

the incorrect loading of paper,

trying to load a single document through the manual feeder when the ASF is empty or when it contains a narrower document format than that in the manual feeder.

If the paper has already exited from the print area:

– remove the jammed paper, pulling it carefully forward towards the output tray.

– to resume printing, check the paper in the ASF (if necessary remove any imperfect/damaged sheets, fan and square it and then reload it in the ASF), and then press ON LINE.

If the paper jams in the ASF:

– press POWER (printer off) and disconnect the printer from the electrical power supply

– remove the damaged page(s) from the ASF. Remove the rest of the paper, check it for imperfect/damaged sheets, fan and square it and then reload it in the

ASF.

– Reconnect and power the printer.

Troubleshooting - Paper

5.

Incorrect stacking.

Too many sheets of paper in the output tray.

The output tray capacity depends on the type of paper and print coverage on the page. It will hold approximately 60 standard weight printed pages.

Heavily printed pages tend to curl and may not stack correctly. They may also stain the rear of the page stacked over them, as they require longer to dry. Always remove such pages from the output tray as soon as they are expelled from the printer.

Print heads

When changing the print head(s), take care not to touch the print head carriage shaft nor the area under the print head carriage.

1.

Printer does not print

Check that you have removed the protective film from the print head.

2.

Print head carriage does not return to the rest position after a replacement operation.

Check that you have inserted the print head properly,

in

the correct position (black, left; color/Photo, right).

Check that nothing is blocking the carriage path.

Check that the print head(s) is/are fixed correctly.

If you have inserted a NEW print head or if you have replaced the ink cartridge, remember to reset the ink counter (press and hold PAPER and then press POWER for at least 2 seconds).

3.

Characters are faint.

Run a demo page to check that there is ink in the print head.

If printing is still faint, clear the print head, holding ON

LINE and pressing PAPER for at least 2 seconds.

Repeat the demo page; if there is no improvement, replace/change the ink cartridge/ print head.

Troubleshooting - Print heads 37

4.

Missing dots

If dots or lines are not printed completely, remove the ink jet print head and reinsert it, or:

Clean the print head, holding ON LINE and pressing

PAPER for at least 2 seconds.

Clean the electrical contacts on the print head and those in the print head carriage.

For all these operations, see the appropriate paragraphs in

Ink Jet Print Heads.

After clearing and/or cleaning the print head contacts, print a “demo” page to check the print quality. If the print quality is still not acceptable, run a print test, as follows:

Make sure that the print heads are inserted and that there is paper in the ASF.

Press and hold in this order: ON LINE, then PAPER, then POWER. Hold them until the light indicators go off, then release them together. Press ON LINE, POWER,

ON LINE, in this order; or click the appropriate button in the Printer Care folder in the Printer Monitor.

A sheet of paper will be fed into the printer and the print test will be executed automatically.

To suspend the print test temporarily, press ON LINE

(pressing this key a second time will cause printing to resume). Once the test is completed and the last sheet of paper expelled, the printer will go automatically into

ON-LINE condition. Check the print quality of the test, making sure that all the characters are clearly defined and complete.

38

If you have any problems with the print test, check that you have followed the operating procedures correctly.

Print test contents

The print test ( see figure on page XI) contains information on the printer firmware (release, emulation and character generators) and the correct operation of the print head nozzles:

The first line of the print test contains technical information on the printer contents.

This is followed by information on the condition of the two print heads (first the monochrome head, then the color print head). This information consists of:

– the Print Head Type (Black/Color),

– the Print Head Test (consisting of a diagonal line, indicating the performance of the head nozzles),

– the result line (Nozzle test Pass, or Fail with the number(s) of the faulty nozzle(s)).

If dots are missing, see the appropriate paragraphs in this section for the possible solutions to this problem.

Then repeat the print test.

The rest of the print test contains the currently selected values for the programmable parameters (SETUP), a print-out of the currently selected character set and the internal fonts available.

If you wish to modify your printer set-up under DOS, see

Running the Printer Set-Up Utility in Using Software.

Troubleshooting - Print heads

Printing

During a printing operation, do not stop the print head carriage manually nor touch the area within its path.

1.

Printer does not print/receive data.

Check that the printer is connected to the electrical power supply, powered on and On Line (the ON LINE and POWER light indicators on the operator panel should be lit).

Check the physical (cables) and logical (application and driver) connections between the printer and host.

If you have an “ECP” computer, make sure that its printer port setting is Printer Port: LPTx.

If necessary, change the setting in your system properties (see point 5 in the section entitled Installation).

Check that host system is switched on.

If the print head carriage does not move and the ON

LINE and POWER light indicators flash rapidly, press

POWER to switch off the printer and then disconnect it from the electrical power supply. Wait a a few seconds, then reconnect and power the printer again. If the ON

LINE and POWER light indicators continue to flash rapidly, switch off and disconnect the printer and call the

Technical Support Service.

Check whether the printer is in the special functions mode (printer powered but both light indicators off).

Check that you have removed the protective film from the print head.

If the ON LINE light indicator flashes slowly, check that paper is present and that it loads correctly, and that the print heads are fixedly in place correctly.

2.

Printing stops.

If the ON LINE light indicator flashes intermittently, check that the paper has not jammed.

If this is the case, see point 4 (Paper jams or tears) in the section entitled Paper.

If the ON LINE light indicator flashes slowly, check that paper is present and that it loads correctly.

If there is no paper in the printer, load up to 120 standard weight sheets of plain paper in the ASF and press the PAPER key on the operator panel.

See Paper for the correct paper loading procedure.

If the ON LINE and POWER light indicators flash alternately, replace the ink cartridge or change the print head.

Printing stops in the middle of the print job and the page is ejected; check the printer port, which should be

Printer Port: LPTx (see point 5 in the section entitled

Installation).

3.

Printing does not resume after changing the print head(s).

• the print head(s) is/are not inserted/fixed correctly.

Make sure the print head is inserted in the correct chamber (black, left; color/Photo, right) and fixed towards the rear of the printer.

Troubleshooting - Printing 39

• the ink counter has not been reset.

Press and hold PAPER and press POWER for at least 2 seconds. The POWER light indicator will flash three times.

See “Ink Jet Print Heads” for the correct ink cartridge/ print head replacement procedure.

4.

Poor print quality.

(a) Legibility

Clean the print head, holding ON LINE and pressing

PAPER for at least 2 seconds, or clicking on the appropriate button in the Printer Care tab in the Printer

Monitor.

Clean the electrical contacts on the print head and those in the print head carriage.

Try printing on the other side of the paper.

Make sure you are using good quality paper.

(b) Character alignment

In Windows® environment, access the Printer Care tab in the Printer Monitor and run the “ALIGN” function, to correct eventual horizontal/vertical misalignment of the characters (see Checking print accuracy in the Quick

Start).

Under DOS, access the print head alignment function in the printer setup utility program (see Using Software).

5.

Strange characters are printed.

Check that the default driver you have selected is the correct one.

Check the interface cable quality and length (max.

recommended length: 2 meters).

When using Standard print quality (or Automatic mode with Speed optimization) with some applications

(CorelDraw, Designer, etc.), you may obtain strange printouts (extra-large characters, altered character spacings, incorrectly proportioned graphics). This is due to difficulties in handling non-square resolutions

(600 x 300 dpi). If this occurs, you should select another print quality (or change to Quality optimization in

Automatic mode).

If you cannot solve this problem, your hot line service may request you to run a hex dump of a test piece to check that the data transmission is operative. To run the hex dump, proceed as follows:

Press and hold in this order: ON LINE, then PAPER, then POWER. Hold them until the light indicators go off, then release them together. Press ON LINE, PAPER,

POWER, in this order.

(a) Send a short text file from your computer. This file is printed as a string of hexadecimal codes corresponding to the individual characters transmitted.

(b) To exit, press POWER (printer switched off).

40 Troubleshooting - Printing

6.

Print test executed correctly, but unable to print in

Windows® environment.

The printer driver may not be installed correctly.

Windows® 3.1/3.11

Check that the name of the printer appears in the List of

printers in the Printers dialogue box:

– If the printer name is not listed, install the printer following the driver installation procedure described in the Quick Start.

– If the printer name is listed, remove it from the list by clicking on the Remove button in the Printers dialogue box and then repeat the driver installation procedure.

Windows® 95

Check that the printer icon appears in the Printers dialogue box:

– If the printer icon is not present, install the printer following the driver installation procedure described in the Quick Start.

– If the printer icon is present, remove it by highlight the icon, right clicking your mouse buton, and then clicking on Delete in the menu which opens; repeat the driver installation procedure.

7.

Color printing and your PC monitor.

You are continually getting an “out of memory” message which is preventing you from printing.

Your color monitor is set to “high resolution” and is processing all the data.

Change/reduce the setting. You will not lose in printing quality and you will be able to print without this error message appearing.

Color on your PC monitor differs from color on printer.

As your PC monitor and printer use different methods to create color (PC monitor: red, green, blue; printer: cyan, magenta, yellow), the colors produced in your printed document may differ.

Beyond adjusting the printer driver, you will get the best color matches if you use a 24-bit color monitor.

Color printing speed.

The speed at which your color document is printed depends on:

– the processing speed of your PC,

– the amount of RAM available in your PC,

– the type of document you are printing.

Programmable Printer Features

This appendix contains a brief descripton of the printer settings, using the printer setup utility programme.

Factory Settings

When you receive the printer, its basic operating parameters are already set with pre-defined factory settings

(default settings for PCL III+ emulation). These are the settings which appear in the print test the very first time you run it (see specific section in Troubleshooting).

Your printer emulation is set to be compatible with the diskette included with your printer. You should not have to vary anything.

The factory settings for the printer parameters are:
