Repairing Your Printer

This article describes how to transport the printer for repairing it.

 You can't take ink out of ink tanks.

 Make sure the tank caps of ink tanks are closed securely. If the tank caps are open, close the tank caps properly.

 Press the ON button to turn off the printer with the print heads installed. The printer protects the print heads by covering them automatically to prevent them from being dried.

 Don't remove the print heads. Ink may leak.

 If the inside of the printer becomes dirty, clean with a soft cloth that gets wet with water and squeezed firmly.

 When transporting the printer, pack the printer in a plastic bag so that ink doesn't 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.

 Don't tilt the printer; otherwise, 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.
