Learn about how to prepare the PIXMA TR150 for shipping.


When you want to pack the printer for shipment (for example, if you're moving), be sure to keep in mind:

 Pack the printer in a sturdy box, using sufficient protective material to ensure safe transport.

 With the print head and ink tank 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.

 When packing the printer in a sturdy box, do not place it with its front face (paper output slot side) facing down.

Do not pack the printer with its paper output slot face down

 When a shipping agent is handling transport of the printer, have its box marked "PRECISION MACHINE".

  1. Turn the printer off.

  2. Check that the ON lamp is off and unplug the power cord.

     Do not unplug the printer while the ON lamp is lit or flashing, as it may cause malfunction or damage to the printer, making the printer unable to print.

  3. Retract the paper support, then close the rear tray cover and paper output slot cover.

  4. Unplug the printer cable from the computer and from the printer, then unplug the AC adapter from the printer.

    When the battery is not used for a long period of time (6 months or longer), remove the battery from the printer.

  5. Use adhesive tape to secure all the covers on the printer to keep them from opening during transportation. Then pack the printer in the plastic bag.

  6. Attach the protective material to the printer when packing the printer in the box.
