    Remove the maintenance cartridge and the attached plastic bag from the package.

  2. Remove the coin screw from the maintenance cover (C).

  3. Remove the maintenance cover.

    Put your finger on the hole of the maintenance cover and remove it.

  4. Pull out the maintenance cartridge.

    Hold the upper portion of the maintenance cartridge with your hands so that its bottom does not touch the floor or desk.


    • Be careful not to drop or place the removed maintenance cartridge on a desk or something. Dirt on the bottom may adhere to it or the ink inside may be scattered.

    • Do not turn the removed maintenance cartridge upside down to prevent leakage of ink.

    • Put the used one immediately into the plastic bag attached to the new maintenance cartridge and seal the bag by tying the opening tightly to prevent the ink from leaking.

    Align the tab on the back of the maintenance cover with the hole on the printer and close it.
