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.
163
If you will enlarge the image using Epson Scan's Target Size setting, 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:
• Email/view on a computer screen/post on the web: 96 to 150 dpi
• Print/convert to editable text (OCR): 300 dpi
• Fax: 200 dpi

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

Removing and Installing Ink Cartridges
Make sure you have your replacement cartridges handy before you begin. You must install new
cartridges immediately after removing the old ones.
Caution: Leave your old cartridges in the printer until you are ready to replace them to prevent the print
head nozzles from drying out. Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink.
Cartridges are vacuum packed to maintain reliability.
1. Make sure that the CD/DVD tray is not inserted for printing.
2. Turn on your product.
• If an ink cartridge is expended, you see a message on the LCD screen. Note which cartridges

Warning: If ink gets on your skin, wash it thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets into your eyes,
flush them immediately with water. If ink gets into your mouth, spit it out and see a doctor right away.
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children.
5. Recap the used ink cartridge using the cap that came with it.
Note: Dispose of used cartridges carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.
6. If you are replacing the Black (BK) ink cartridge, shake the new cartridge gently four or five times
before unwrapping it. You do not need to shake the Photo Black (PBK) cartridge or any of the other
color ink cartridges.
Caution: Do not shake the cartridges after opening the packages, or ink may leak.
295
7. Remove the cartridge from the package.
Caution: Do not touch the areas shown above. Doing so may prevent normal operation and printing.

Caution: If you remove an ink cartridge for later use, recap the ink cartridge using the cap that came
with it to prevent the ink from drying out and to protect the surrounding area from getting smeared by ink.
Store the ink cartridge in the same environment as the product. Do not leave the product with the ink
cartridges removed for an extended period of time. Otherwise, ink remaining in the print head nozzles
may dry out and you may not be able to print.

If you hear noises from your product after installing ink, check the following:
• The first time you install ink cartridges, the product must prime its print head. Wait until priming
finishes before you turn off the product, or it may prime improperly and use excess ink the next time
you turn it on. Your product is finished priming the print head when the power light stops flashing.
• If the product's print head stops moving or making noise, and the charging process has not finished
after approximately 5 minutes, turn off your product. Turn it back on and check to see if charging is still
in progress. If it is still in progress, contact Epson for help.

Grainy Printout
If your printouts are grainy, try these solutions:
• Make sure you loaded the printable side of the paper correctly for your product.
• Select a higher print quality setting and turn off any high speed settings in your product software.
353
• Run a nozzle check to see if any of the print head nozzles are clogged. Then clean the print head, if
necessary.
• Align the print head.
• You may need to increase the image resolution or print a smaller size; see your software
documentation.
• If you enlarged the image in an image-editing program, you need to increase the resolution setting to
retain a high image quality. Increase the resolution by the same amount you increased the image size.
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.
Note: Higher resolution settings result in larger file sizes, which take longer to process and print.
Consider the limitations of your computer system when selecting a resolution, and select the lowest
possible resolution that produces acceptable quality to keep file sizes manageable.

Incorrect Colors
If your printouts have incorrect colors, try these solutions:
• Make sure the Black/Grayscale or Grayscale setting is not selected in your printer software.
• Run a nozzle check to see if any of the print head nozzles are clogged. Then clean the print head, if
necessary.
• The ink cartridges may be old or low on ink, and you may need to replace them.
• Your printed colors can never exactly match your on-screen colors. However, you can use a color
management system to get as close as possible. Try using the color management options in your
printer software.

Scanned Image Colors Do Not Match Original Colors
Printed colors can never exactly match the colors on your computer monitor because printers and
monitors use different color systems: monitors use RGB (red, green, and blue) and printers typically use
CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black).
Check the color matching and color management capabilities of your computer, display adapter, and the
software you are using to see if they are affecting the palette of colors you see on your screen.
To adjust the colors in your scanned image, adjust these Epson Scan settings (if available) and try
scanning again:

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 touch the green IC chip on the side of the cartridge. This may prevent normal operation.

According to the FCC's electrical safety advisory, we recommend that you may install an AC surge
arrester in the AC outlet to which this equipment is connected. Telephone companies report that
electrical surges, typically lightning transients, are very destructive to customer terminal equipment
connected to AC power sources and that this is a major nationwide problem.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant
to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not
occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause interference to radio and television
reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to
correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
WARNING
The connection of a non-shielded equipment interface cable to this equipment will invalidate the FCC
Certification or Declaration of this device and may cause interference levels which exceed the limits
established by the FCC for this equipment. It is the responsibility of the user to obtain and use a shielded
equipment interface cable with this device. If this equipment has more than one interface connector, do
not leave cables connected to unused interfaces. Changes or modifications not expressly approved by
