Seating the print head


Seat the print head

Below is the procedure for seating the print head and ink tanks:

  1. Power on the printer.

  2. Open the paper output tray and top cover.

    Note:  Gently open the paper output tray while holding it.

  3. After confirming that the print head holder has moved to the center, open the inner cover.

  4. Remove the orange tape securing the print head lock lever, and raise the print head lock lever.

    Note:  If the top cover is left open for more than 10 minutes, the print head holder will move to the right.  If this occurs, close the top cover once and then re-open it.

  5. Remove the print head from its package and remove the orange protective cap.

    <1> Electrical Contacts and Print Head Face's Nozzle Area
    <2> Ink Supply Filters

    Note:  To avoid any damage, do not touch the print head face's nozzle area, electrical contacts, and ink supply filters.  After removing the protective cap, set the print head into the print head holder immediately.  Do not re-attach the protective cap after it has been removed. 

  6. Set the print head into the print head holder, and lower the print head lock lever until a click sound is made.

    Next, install the ink tanks.

  7. Remove the cyan ink tank (BCI-6C) from its package. Pull the orange tape in the direction of the arrow to remove the wrap film completely.

    Note:   Remove the orange tape completely.  If the orange tape is not completely removed, it may interfere with printing.

  8. Hold the ink tank as shown in the image below. Twist the orange protective cap in the direction of the arrow, and remove it.

    Note:   Remove the protective cap while holding it, so that fingers will not be stained by the ink.

  9. Insert the ink tank into the slot at the right end, and push down on the PUSH mark on top of the ink tank until a click sound is made.  Install the other ink tanks in the same manner.

  10. Close the inner cover and top cover.

    Note:  Check that each ink tank is installed in the correct position:
