Safety Precautions
Safety Precautions
Please read the safety warnings and cautions provided in this manual to ensure that you
use the printer safely. Do not attempt to use the printer in any way not described in this
manual.
Warning ➤
You may cause an electric shock/fire or damage the printer if you ignore
any of these safety precautions.
■ Choosing a location
Do not place the printer close to flammable solvents such as alcohol or thinners.
■ Power supply
Never attempt to plug in or unplug the printer from the power supply when your hands
are wet.
Always push the plug all the way into the power outlet.
Never damage, modify, stretch or excessively bend or twist the
power cord. Do not place heavy objects on the power cord.
8
Safety Precautions
Never plug the printer into a power socket that is shared with other
equipment (extension cord, double adapter, etc.).
Never use the printer if the power cord is bundled or knotted.
If you detect smoke, unusual smells or strange noises around the printer, immediately
unplug the printer at the power supply and call for service.
Periodically unplug the printer and use a dry cloth to wipe off any dust or dirt that has
collected on the plug and power outlet. If the printer is placed in a location exposed to a
lot of dust, smoke or high humidity, the dust that has collected on the plug may absorb
moisture and cause insulation failure and fire.
■ Cleaning the printer
Use a damp cloth to clean the printer. Never use flammable solvents
such as alcohol, benzene or thinners.
If flammable solvents come in contact with electrical components inside the
printer, it could cause a fire or electric shock.
Always unplug the printer from the power outlet before cleaning the printer.
If you accidentally switch the printer on while cleaning it, you could injure yourself or damage the printer.
9
Safety Precautions
■ Maintaining the printer
Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the printer. There are no user-serviceable parts
inside the printer.
The printer contains high-voltage components. Never attempt any maintenance procedure not described in
this guide.
■ Working around the printer
Do not use flammable sprays near the printer.
This could cause a fire or electric shock if the spray comes into contact with electrical components inside
the printer.
Never put your hands or fingers in the printer while it is printing.
Do not place metal objects (paper clips, staples, etc.) or containers of flammable
solvents (alcohol, thinners. etc.) on top of the printer.
If any foreign object (metal or liquid) falls into the printer, unplug the power cord and call
for service.
10
Safety Precautions
Caution ➤
You may cause injury or damage the printer if you ignore any of these
safety precautions.
■ Choosing a location
Do not install the printer in a location that is unstable or subject to excessive vibration.
Do not install the printer in a location that is very humid or dusty, in direct sunlight,
outdoors, or close to a heating source.
To avoid the risk of fire or electric shocks, install the printer in a location with an ambient temperature range
of 41°F to 95°F (5°C to 35°C) and humidity of 10% to 90% (condensation free).
Do not place the printer on a thick rug or carpet.
Ensure that the area around the power outlet is kept clear at all times
so you can easily unplug the power cord if necessary.
When moving the printer, carry the printer at both ends.
11
Safety Precautions
■ Power supply
Never remove the plug by pulling on the cord.
Do not use an extension cord.
If you do not intend to use the printer for a long period of time, unplug it after turning it off.
Never use a power supply voltage other than that supplied in the country of purchase.
The correct power supply voltage and frequency is as follows:
USA/Canada: AC 120V, 60Hz
Europe: AC 230V±10%, 50Hz
Australia: AC 240V, 50Hz
■ Printheads and ink tanks
For safety reasons, store printheads and ink tanks out of the reach of small children.
If a child ingests any ink, consult a doctor immediately.
12
Safety Precautions
Do not shake printheads or ink tanks.
Ink may leak out and stain clothing or the surrounding area.

When you install a new ink tank
When you reset the ink counter, the counter will assume that the ink tank is full, regardless
of how much ink actually remains. Resetting the counter on a new ink tank is the only way

■ How to Display Accurate Low Ink Warning
• Reset the ink counter every time you install a new ink tank.
The ink counter is only accurate when synchronized with the actual ink level.
To synchronize the counter with the actual ink level, the ink counter must be set only
immediately after installing a new ink tank.
• Do not reset the ink counter for an ink tank that is in use.
This would disrupt synchronization between the counter and the actual ink level.
Note
➤
• Ink counters for black and color ink tanks work independently of each
other. However, both start counting at the time you enable the low ink
warning. If you did not reset the counter for a specific ink tank when it was
first installed, the low ink warning may not function correctly for that tank.
Do not reset the ink counter until you install a new ink tank. Also note that
the counter for each ink tank must be started separately.
• Refer to "Low Ink Warning Displays Ink Tank with '?'" if the ink tanks and
counters are not synchronized.

Troubleshooting
Printed Surface is Scratched
■ Ensure that you are using suitable paper.
• The paper weight must be less than 28 lb.
If you use paper heavier than 28 lb., the printhead may scratch the printed surface. Clean
the printhead first, then print with the correct paper.
• The paper must not be curled.
This problem can be resolved by simply turning the paper over.
■ When printing on thick paper, set the paper thickness lever to the right.
This widens a gap between the printhead and the paper.
If the paper gets scratched when printing on plain paper, try setting the paper thickness
lever to the right. A message will display saying that the position of the lever is incorrect.
Ignore the message and continue printing.
■ Reduce the Intensity setting in the printer driver and try printing again.
When printing an image with high intensity, especially on plain paper, the paper may
absorb too much ink and become wavy. This may cause the printed surface to become
scratched.

lamp stops flashing.
Note
➤
When printing a large amount of data, such as a photograph or illustration,

Printer Does Not Start or Stops During Print Jobs
139
Troubleshooting
Printing Stops Before It is Completed
■ Check the status of the POWER lamp.
When the POWER lamp is flashing green, the printer is processing data. Printing a large
amount of data, such as a photograph or illustration, takes time for the computer to
process, during which the printer may appear to not be functioning.
In addition, when continuously printing material that uses a large amount of black ink on
plain paper, the printer will sometimes pause. In either case, wait until the processing is
complete.
■ Halt the print job and turn the printer off for at least 15 minutes to cool the printhead.
The printhead can overheat when continuously printing for a long time. To protect the
printhead, the printer will sometimes pause automatically at a line break before
resuming. In this event, interrupt the print job at a convenient time, then turn the printer
off for at least 15 minutes.
Furthermore, when continuously printing graphics or photos with intense colors, printing
may stop to protect the printhead. In this case, printing will not resume. Turn the printer
off and wait at least 15 minutes before turning the printer back on and reprinting the job.
Caution ➤
The area around the printhead inside the printer can become extremely
hot. Do not touch the printhead or nearby components.
