Transporting Your Printer

When relocating the printer, make sure of the following.


  • You cannot take ink out of ink tanks.
  • Check if the tank cap is completely inserted. If the ink tank cover is not completely closed, insert the tank cap properly.
  • With the print head (cartridge) left installed in the printer, press the ON button to turn off the power. This allows the printer to automatically cap the print head, thus preventing it from drying.
  • Do not remove the print head (cartridge). Ink may leak.
  • When transporting the printer, pack the printer in a plastic bag so that ink does not leak.
  • Pack the printer in a sturdy box so that it is placed with its bottom facing down, using sufficient protective material to ensure safe transport.
  • Do not tilt the printer. Ink may leak.
  • When a shipping agent is handling transport of the printer, have its box marked "THIS SIDE UP" to keep the printer with its bottom facing down. Mark also with "FRAGILE" or "HANDLE WITH CARE".

  • Please handle with care and ensure the box remains flat and NOT turned upside down or on its side, as the printer may be damaged and ink in the printer may leak.
