Important Safety Instructions

Before using your printer, read the following safety instructions to make sure you use the equipment safely and effectively.

The printer weighs about 108 lb (49 kg) [Epson Stylus Pro 7880] or

198 lb (90 kg) [Epson Stylus Pro 9880] without ink or paper. Make sure

you have sufficient assistance when lifting it. (See page 19 for the

Pro 7880 or page 29 for the Pro 9880.)

When setting up the printer, make sure you have enough space around it. You may need more space behind the printer if you print on large

sheets of heavy stock or posterboard. (See page 19 for the Pro 7880 or

page 29 for the Pro 9880.)

Place the printer on a flat, stable surface. The printer will not operate properly if it is tilted or at an angle.

Avoid places subject to rapid changes in temperature and humidity. Also keep the printer away from direct sunlight, strong light, or heat sources.

Avoid places subject to shocks and vibrations.

Keep the printer away from dusty areas.

Keep your entire computer system away from potential sources of electromagnetic interference, such as loudspeakers or the base units of cordless telephones.

Place the printer near a wall outlet where the plug can be easily unplugged.

Use only the type of power source indicated on the label.

Connect the printer to a properly grounded outlet. Avoid using an outlet on the same circuit as a photocopier or air control system that regularly switches on and off.

Avoid using electrical outlets controlled by wall switches or timers.

Use only the power cord that comes with the printer. Use of another cord may result in fire or electric shock.

The printer’s power cord is designed for use with the printer only. Using it with other equipment may result in fire or electric shock.

Do not use a damaged or frayed power cord.

15

16 | Introduction

Caution: Always turn the printer off using the

P Power button. When you press this button,

POWER OFF appears on the LCD panel and the

P Power light flashes.

Do not unplug the printer or turn off the power to the printer until the panel shuts off and the

P Power light stops flashing. This ensures that the print head is safely capped.

If you use an extension cord with the printer, make sure the total ampere rating of devices plugged into the extension cord does not exceed the cord’s ampere rating. Also, make sure the total ampere rating of all devices plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed the wall outlet’s ampere rating.

Do not block or cover the openings in the printer’s case.

Do not put your hand inside the printer during printing.

Do not move the print head by hand unless instructed to do so by an

Epson service technician; otherwise you may damage the printer.

Do not insert objects through the slots. Take care not to spill liquid on the printer.

Do not attempt to service the printer yourself.

Power down the printer from the control panel, unplug the printer, and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions:

The power cord or plug is damaged; liquid has entered the printer; the printer has been dropped or the cabinet damaged; the printer does not operate normally or exhibits a distinct change in performance.

Before transporting the printer, make sure the print head is in the far right (home) position.

For California customers only:

The lithium batteries in this product contain

Perchlorate Material - special handling may apply,

Caution: Do not use too much force when you shake cartridges that have been previously installed.

Ink Cartridge Safety Instructions

Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children and do not drink the ink.

Store ink cartridges in a cool, dark place.

If ink gets on your skin, wash it off with soap and water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water.

Shake ink cartridges well before installing them for best results.

Do not use an ink cartridge beyond the date printed on the cartridge carton.

Use up the ink cartridge within six months of installation for best results.

Do not dismantle ink cartridges or try to refill them. This could damage the print head.

After bringing an ink cartridge inside from a cold storage site, allow it to warm up at room temperature for at least three hours before using it.

The IC chip on the ink cartridge retains a variety of cartridge information, which allows you to remove and reinsert it freely.

However, each time the cartridge is inserted, some ink is consumed because the printer automatically performs a reliability check.

If you remove an ink cartridge for later use, protect the ink supply area from dirt and dust, and store it in the same environment as this product.

Note that there is a valve in the ink supply port, making covers or plugs unnecessary, but care is needed to prevent ink from staining items that the cartridge touches.

Do not touch the ink supply port, its surrounding area, or the green IC chip on the side of the ink cartridge. Doing so may affect normal operation and printing.
