Replacing an Ink Cartridge
w
Warning:
Be careful when you handle the 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 remain after a thorough flushing, see a doctor
immediately.
The Error light and a panel message inform you when it is time to
get a replacement ink cartridge ready, and when it is time to
replace the ink cartridges.
For details of the error messages, see “Error Messages” on page 37.
1. Make sure this product is on and the On light is not flashing.
2. When the ink is empty:
Refer to the panel message to determine which ink is empty,
and then press the x Color Copy button.

Replacing Ink Cartridges
c
Caution:
❏ You must remove the yellow tape seal from the cartridge
before installing it; otherwise, the cartridge becomes
unusable and copying is not possible.
❏ If you have installed an ink cartridge without removing
the yellow tape seal, you must remove the cartridge and
install a new one. Prepare the new cartridge by removing
the yellow tape seal, and then install it in this product.

❏ Do not remove the blue portion of the tape seal from the
top of the cartridge; otherwise, the print head may become
clogged and copying is not possible.
3
❏ Do not remove the tape seal from the bottom of the
cartridge; otherwise, the ink may leak.
3
❏ Be sure to always install an ink cartridge into this
product immediately following the removal of an old ink
cartridge. Failure to promptly install the ink cartridge
may cause the print head to dry out and render it unable
to function properly.

ink cartridge from dirt and dust. Store the ink cartridge
in the same environment as this product. When storing
the cartridge, be sure that it stands as shown in the
illustration above (the label that identifies the color of the
ink cartridge should appear on the top of the cartridge).
The valve in the ink supply port is designed to contain
any excess ink that may be released. However, careful
handling is recommended. Do not touch the supply port
of the ink cartridge or its surrounding area.
7. Align the tabs on the ink cartridge so that they are resting on
the tabs protruding from the base of the opened ink cartridge
clamp as illustrated below.

w
Warning:
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children. Do not allow
children to drink from or otherwise handle the cartridges.
3
Note:
❏ This product uses ink cartridges equipped with IC chip. The IC chip
accurately monitors the amount of ink used by each cartridge, so
even if a cartridge is removed and later inserted again, all of its ink
can be used. However, some ink is consumed each time the cartridge
is inserted because this product automatically checks its reliability.
❏ When an ink cartridge becomes empty, you cannot continue copying
even if the other cartridge still contains ink. Before copying, replace
the empty cartridge.

❏ In addition to being used in document copying, ink is also consumed
in the following operations: print head cleaning, self-cleaning cycle
performed when this product is turned on, and ink charging when
the ink cartridge is installed in this product.
c
Caution:
❏ EPSON recommends the use of genuine EPSON ink
cartridges. Other products not manufactured by EPSON
may cause damage to this product not covered by EPSON's
warranties.
❏ Leave the old cartridge installed in this product until you
have obtained a replacement; otherwise, ink remaining in the
print head nozzles may dry out.
❏ Do not refill the ink cartridges. This product calculates the
amount of ink remaining using an IC chip built into the ink
cartridge. Even if the cartridge is refilled, the amount of ink
remaining is not be recalculated by the IC chip and therefore
the amount of ink available for use does not change.
Checking the Ink Supply
You can check the amount of ink remaining in the ink cartridges,
using the Control Panel.
Press one of the Menu buttons repeatedly until Ink Levels
appears on the LCD panel. The amount of ink left appears as a
percentage between 0% and 100%, in 10% increments.
You can use the following cartridges with this product.

Checking the Print Head Nozzles
If you find that the copied image is unexpectedly faint or some
dots in the copied image are missing, you may be able to identify
the problem by checking the print head nozzles.

Print head needs to be cleaned
The above sample is in black and white, but the actual test prints are color
(CMYK).
If the nozzle check page does not print satisfactorily, there is a
problem with this product. This could be a clogged ink nozzle or
a misaligned print head. See the next section for details on
cleaning the print head.
Cleaning the Print Head
If you find that the copied image is unexpectedly faint or some
dots in the copied image are missing, you may be able to solve
these problems by cleaning the print head, which ensures that the
nozzles are delivering ink properly.
Note:
❏ Print head cleaning uses both color and black inks. To avoid wasting
ink, clean the print head only if the copy quality drops (for example,
blurred printout, incorrect or missing color.)
❏ Use the nozzle check first to confirm that the print head needs to be
cleaned. This saves ink.
❏ When a message appears on the LCD panel to prompt you to replace
the ink cartridge or to indicate the ink is low, you cannot clean the
print head. In this case, replace the appropriate ink cartridge first.
30
Maintenance and Transporting
Follow the steps below to clean the print head, using the Control

3. When the On light stops flashing, print a nozzle check pattern
to confirm that the head is clean and to reset the cleaning cycle.
See “Checking the Print Head Nozzles” on page 29.
If the copy quality has not improved after repeating this
procedure four or five times, turn this product off and leave it
alone overnight. Then, perform the nozzle check again and repeat
the head cleaning if necessary.
If the copy quality still has not improved, one or both of your ink
cartridges may be old or damaged and may need to be replaced.
To replace an ink cartridge before it is empty, see “Replacing an
Ink Cartridge” on page 21.
