Replacing an Ink Cartridge
When one of the Ink Out lights is flashing (and INK LOW is
displayed on the control panel), the corresponding cartridge is
almost out of ink. Make sure you have a replacement
cartridge. When the light stays on and INK OUT is displayed,
the cartridge is empty. You must replace the cartridge before
you can continue printing.

Before you start, make sure the printer is turned on. Then
follow these steps to replace an ink cartridge:
1. Note the color of the Ink Out light which is on or flashing.
This is the cartridge that you need to replace.
2. Push the indentation on the ink compartment cover to
release the lock and open the cover. INK COMPART. OPEN
appears on the control panel display.

3. Locate the slot containing the low or empty ink cartridge
(corresponding to the Ink Out light). Press down on the top
of the clamp and pull it forward.
Running a Nozzle Check
Note:
Perform the steps in this section only if you have disabled the
automatic nozzle check in maintenance mode. If you haven’t, the
printer automatically runs a nozzle check and cleans the print head
each time it is powered on. Unless you see the message NOZZLE
CHECK ERROR in the printer’s display, the print head nozzles do not
need to be cleaned.
.
The nozzle check prints a pattern of dots that lets you see if
any print head nozzles are clogged. If any dots are missing,
you can run a cleaning cycle to clear the nozzles.
Follow these steps to print the nozzle check:
1. Load a sheet of paper in the printer. (You can print the
nozzle check on roll paper, but you will use more paper.)
2. Press the SelecType button on the control panel repeatedly
until you see TEST PRINT MENU on the display.
4. Carefully pull the cartridge straight out of the printer.
3. Press the Item button. You see NOZZLE CHECK=PRINT
on the display.
4. Press the Enter button. The nozzle check prints.
If all the lines on the pattern are complete, with no gaps in
the pattern, the print head doesn’t need cleaning.
If dots are missing from the pattern, as shown below, you
need to run a cleaning cycle. See the following section for
instructions.
5. Make sure the replacement cartridge is the correct color,
and remove it from its package.
If you’re using Archival ink, shake the cartridge gently
before installing it.
6. Hold the ink cartridge with the arrow mark on the left side
and pointing to the rear of the printer. Then insert the ink
cartridge into the slot. Don’t force the cartridge.
7. Push the cartridge clamp back up. Make sure the
corresponding Ink Out light goes off.
8. Close the ink compartment cover.

Aligning the Print Head from the Control
Panel
Running a Cleaning Cycle
You must use roll paper to print the alignment patterns. Two
rows consisting of sets of 15 bars are printed across the width
of the paper. It takes about 10 minutes to print both rows.
Note:
Perform the steps in this section only if you have disabled the
automatic nozzle check in maintenance mode. If you haven’t, the
printer automatically runs a nozzle check and cleaning cycle each time
it is powered on.
Follow these steps to align the print head using the control
panel:
If your printed image is unexpectedly light or dots are missing,
you may need to run a cleaning cycle. This unclogs the print
head nozzles so they can deliver ink properly.
1. Load roll paper that is at least 24 inches wide.
2. Press the SelecType button until HEAD ALIGNMENT
MENU is displayed.
The cleaning process uses ink, so run it only if print quality
declines. Always run a nozzle check first to confirm that the
print head needs cleaning; the nozzle check uses only a small
amount of ink.
3. Press the Item button. PAPER THICK=STD appears on the
display.
If you’re using EPSON paper, leave this setting on STD.
If you have installed the EPSON printer driver and utilities,
you can run the Head Cleaning utility. See the EPSON Stylus
Pro 10000 Printer Guide for instructions.
If you’re using other media, enter the thickness value of the
paper in 0.1 mm increments by pressing the + or − button.
4. Press the Enter button to save the setting.
ADJUST.PATT.=ALL appears on the display.
Follow these steps to run the cleaning cycle from the control
panel:
5. Press the Enter button to print both rows of alignment
patterns.
1. Make sure none of the Ink Out lights is on or flashing. (If
so, you need to replace the indicated ink cartridge before
you can run a cleaning cycle.)
If you want to print a single row of alignment patterns,
press the + or − button until the row number appears. Then
press the Enter button.
2. Press the Cleaning button and hold it for three seconds.
The Pause light flashes as the printer cleans its print head.
The cleaning cycle takes about one minute, and does not
use any paper.
6. Examine the first row. You see a series of patterns similar to
the pattern below across the width of the paper. Determine
which bar in the first pattern has the smallest gaps. In the
example below, #8 has the smallest gaps.
Caution:
To avoid damaging the printer, don’t turn it off until the cleaning
cycle is finished and the Pause light has stopped flashing.
3. When the Pause light goes off, run another nozzle check to
confirm that the print head is clean.
You may need to run the cleaning cycle several times to get a
clean nozzle check pattern. If the lines on the pattern still
appear broken after several cleaning cycles, turn the printer off
and leave it overnight, then clean the print head again the
following morning. If you still see no improvement, contact
EPSON for assistance.
7. Look at the other patterns in the first row to see if the same
number consistently has the smallest gaps. If not, choose the
number that generally has the smallest gaps.
Aligning the Print Head
8. Check the control panel display. Use the + or - button to
select the best aligned bar for row #1. Then press the Enter
button to register the setting.
If banding appears on your printouts, or vertical lines are not
straight, you need to align the print head. You can use the
Print Head Alignment utility if you have the EPSON printer
driver installed (see the EPSON Stylus Pro 10000 Printer
Guide for instructions). If not, you can align the print head
using the control panel. Both procedures align the head for all
modes and resolutions.
12 - EPSON Stylus Pro 10000
9. Repeat steps 6 through 8 for the second row of patterns.
5/01
EPSON Stylus Pro 10000
10. If you chose a bar that generally, but not consistently, had
the smallest gaps, print the row again. Then repeat steps 6
through 8 for that row. Repeat this step until you can
choose a bar that is consistently the best aligned in every
pattern in the row.
Preparing the Printer for Shipment
Follow the instructions below to prepare the printer for
shipment:
1. First turn off the printer and make sure the print head is in
the home (far right) position. If not, turn the printer back
on, wait until the print head moves to the home position,
then turn off the printer.
11. The print head is aligned when your printout shows that bar
#8 (the current alignment setting) shows the smallest gaps
for both rows. Press the Pause button to exit head
alignment mode and return to normal printer operation.
2. Remove the following parts:
❏ Ink cartridges
Using Hex Dump Mode
❏ Power cord
❏ Interface cable
You can use the printer’s hex dump mode to identify problems
if you know how to interpret hex code, or you can fax the hex
printout to a technical support representative.
❏ Paper hammock
❏ All paper or other media
Make sure the printer has paper loaded and is turned off.
Then follow these steps:
❏ Roll paper spindles
1. Press and hold the Pause button while you press the Power
button to turn on the printer. HEX DUMP=PRINT appears
on the display.
❏ Optional manual cutter (if installed)
❏ Optional Automatic Take-Up Reel (if installed)
2. Press the Enter button.
After you remove the ink cartridges, store them in separate,
resealable bags.
3. Send your problem file to the printer.
Caution:
Be sure that the printer is off before you remove the ink
cartridges. Otherwise the ink valves may not close properly.
If for any reason the printer will not be level during shipping, a
service technician must drain all ink from the printer before it is
shipped.
The data in the print buffer is printed with 16-byte hex data
in the left column and corresponding ASCII characters in
the right column. If the last data is less than 16 bytes, you
need to press the Pause button to print it.
4. When you’re done, press the Power button to turn the
printer off and exit maintenance mode.
3. Make sure the ink cartridge clamps and cover are closed.
4. Make sure the casters on the leg assembly are locked, and
the two stabilizer knobs are touching the floor.
Transporting or Storing the Printer
caster

The printer weighs approximately 291 lb (132 kg). Always have
four people lift it, using the hand grip areas illustrated above.
7. Keep the printer level while you move it.
Setting Up the Printer After
Transporting It
Setting up the printer after transporting it is almost identical
to setting it up for the first time. Whenever you set up the
printer, see the Unpacking and Assembly Guide, and note the
following points:
4. Carefully roll the printer to its new location. Relock the
casters and extend the stabilizer knobs after moving.
The first time you start printing after moving the printer, you
may need to realign the print head (see page 12) to ensure
good print quality. If you see the message NOZZLE CHECK
ERROR on the display, turn the printer off and then on again.
The printer automatically runs a nozzle check and cleaning
cycle whenever it is turned on.
❏ Don’t forget to remove any protective material (such as tape
from the ink cartridge clamps).
❏ If the automatic nozzle check is enabled (default), the
printer automatically runs a nozzle check and cleaning cycle
when you turn it on. You may also need to realign the print
head (see page 12) to ensure good print quality.
Moving the Printer on the Stand
When you want to move the printer a short distance, such as
within the same building or facility, you can roll the printer
on its casters. Follow these steps:
Caution:
Do not roll the printer on angled or uneven surfaces.
1. Make sure that the power cord, interface cable, roll paper
spindles, and all paper are removed, and the roll paper cover
and lower cover are closed.
