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.
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.
97
• 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

Refilling Ink
When the ink level in an ink tank is low, you need to refill it.
Before checking the ink level or refilling an ink tank as described here, be sure to read the ink safety
precautions.
Caution: If the ink level is below the lower line on the ink tank, fill it to the upper line on the ink tank.
Continued use of the product when the ink level is below the lower line on the tank could damage the
product.

Refilling the Ink Tank
Ink Safety Precautions
Ink Handling Precautions
Observe the following when handling the ink:
• Keep ink bottles and the ink tank unit out of the reach of children. Do not allow children to drink from or
handle the ink bottles and bottle caps.
• Do not tilt or shake an ink bottle after removing its seal; otherwise, ink may leak.
• Be careful not to touch any ink when you handle the ink tank, ink tank cap, and opened ink bottles or
ink bottle caps.
Ink Refilling Precautions
• Use ink bottles with the correct part number for this product.
• The use of non-Epson ink may cause damage that is not covered by Epson’s warranty, and under
certain circumstances, may cause erratic product behavior.
• This product requires careful handling of ink. Ink may splatter when the ink tank is filled or refilled with
ink. If ink gets on your clothes or belongings, it may not come off.
• Do not open the ink bottle package until you are ready to fill the ink tank. Ink bottles are vacuum
packed to maintain reliability. If you leave an ink bottle unpacked for a long time before using it, print
quality may be affected.
112
• If the ink level is below the lower line on the ink tank, refill the ink soon. Continued use of the product
when the ink level is below the lower line on the ink tank could damage the product.
• Epson recommends filling the ink tank to the upper line when the product is not operating.
• After bringing an ink bottle inside from a cold storage site, allow it to warm up at room temperature for
at least three hours before using it.
• Store ink bottles in a cool, dark place.
• Store the ink bottles in the same environment as the product. When storing or transporting an ink
bottle after removing its seal, do not tilt the bottle and do not subject it to impacts or temperature
changes. Otherwise, ink may leak even if the cap on the ink bottle is tightened securely. Be sure to
keep the ink bottle upright when tightening the cap, and take measures to prevent ink from leaking
when you transport the bottle.
Ink Bottle and Ink Tank Information
• To maintain optimum print head performance, some ink is consumed from the ink tank during printing
and when performing maintenance operations, such as cleaning the print head.
• The ink bottles may contain recycled materials, but this does not affect product function or
performance.

Purchase Epson Ink
You can purchase genuine Epson ink and paper from an Epson authorized reseller. To find the nearest
reseller, visit global.latin.epson.com or call your nearest Epson sales office (website available in Spanish
and Portuguese only).
Note: This product was originally designed to work with genuine Epson inks. Your product may not
function properly if you use other types of ink and may affect Epson's warranty.
The included ink bottles must be used for printer setup and are not for resale. This product includes two
ink bottles; one for printer setup and one to refill the ink tank. Yields vary considerably based on images
printed, print settings, paper type, frequency of use, and temperature.
The setup ink bottle that came with your printer will have a lower yield due to the ink charging process.
This process is carried out the first time you turn on the printer and guarantees better performance. Do
not load paper before refilling the ink tank.
Check the ink level in your product frequently, and refill the ink tank if necessary.

Refilling the Ink Tank
Make sure you have a new ink bottle handy and have read the ink safety precautions before you begin.
You can continue to use the product even if the ink tank is not filled all the way. However, to keep your
product operating at its best, fill the ink tank up to the top line.
Caution: Wear plastic gloves while refilling the ink tank to avoid staining your hands.
1. Place a sheet of paper under the ink tank area in case of spills.
116
2. Open the ink tank unit cover, then remove the ink tank’s cap and place it in the storage area. Be
careful not to spill any ink.
3. Snap off the tip of the bottle cap, but do not dispose of the bottle cap tip so you can use it to seal the
bottle cap later, if necessary. Then remove the cap, remove the seal from the bottle, and replace the
cap on the bottle.
Caution: Install the bottle cap tightly; otherwise, ink may leak.
117
4. Refill the ink tank to the upper line on the ink tank.
118
5. If any ink remains in the ink bottle after filling the ink tank, place the bottle cap tip securely on the
bottle cap and store the ink bottle upright for later use.
6. Place the cap securely on the ink tank.

Print Head Maintenance
If your printouts become too light, or you see dark or light bands across them, you may need to clean the
print head nozzles. Cleaning uses ink, so clean the nozzles only if print quality declines.
You can check for clogged nozzles before you clean them so you don’t clean them unnecessarily.
Note: You cannot clean the print head if the ink level has reached the lower line on the ink tank, and may
not be able to clean it when the ink level in the tank is low. You must refill the ink tank first.

Ink Tube Flushing
If you still see white or dark lines in your printouts, even after cleaning the print head several times, you
can flush the ink tube.
Flushing the ink tube replaces all the ink inside the tube, so flush the ink only if you cannot improve print
quality by cleaning the print head several times.
Caution: Flushing the ink tube consumes a lot of ink. Before flushing the ink tube, make sure there is
enough ink in the ink tank. If necessary, refill the ink tank before flushing the ink tube.
Flushing the ink tube affects the service life of the ink pads by causing them to reach their capacity
sooner. When the ink pads reach the end of their service life, the product stops printing and you must
contact Epson for support.

Ink Specifications
Note: This product was originally designed to work with genuine Epson inks. Your product may not
function properly if you use other types of ink and may affect Epson's warranty.
The included ink bottles must be used for printer setup and are not for resale. This product includes two
ink bottles; one for printer setup and one to refill the ink tank. Yields vary considerably based on images
printed, print settings, paper type, frequency of use, and temperature.
The setup ink bottle that came with your printer will have a lower yield due to the ink charging process.
This process is carried out the first time you turn on the printer and guarantees better performance. Do
not load paper before refilling the ink tank.
Check the ink level in your product frequently, and refill the ink tank if necessary.
