Precautions when handling ink tanks

Take the following precautions when handling ink tanks.

 

attention:

 

  • For safety, keep ink tanks out of the reach of children.
  • If ink is accidentally ingested, contact a physician immediately.

 

 

 

important:

 

  • When it is time to install ink tanks, before opening the pouch tilt the tank to the left and right gently seven or eight times. If you do not agitate the Ink Tank, ink may settle and can affect printing quality.
  • Do not remove and agitate ink tanks that have already been installed in the printer. Ink may leak out.
  • Avoid dropping the Ink Tank after removing it from the pouch. Otherwise, ink may leak and cause stains.
  • There may be ink around the ink supply section of ink tanks you remove. Handle ink tanks carefully during replacement. The ink may stain clothing.
  • We recommend using up an Ink Tank in the course of printing within six months after breaking the seal. Printing quality may be affected if you use older ink tanks.
  • Do not leave the printer without ink tanks installed for extended periods (a month or more). Residual ink may become clogged inside the printer and affect printing quality.
