Performing Pre-storage Maintenance

Perform pre-storage maintenance if you are going to turn off the product and not use it for a long time. This prevents the print head nozzles from becoming permanently clogged.
Perform pre-storage maintenance if the product will not be used for the following intervals:
  • SC-S60600L: 1 month or more (8 cleaning packs required)
  • SC-S80600L: a week or more for White (WH) and Metallic Silver (MS) ink packs (2 cleaning packs required); two weeks or more for all ink packs (10 cleaning packs required)
    Note: If you performed pre-storage maintenance for the White and Metallic Silver ink packs and later need to do it for all the colors, install a White or Metallic Silver ink pack first, then perform pre-storage maintenance again (SC-S80600L).
  1. Press the  maintenance button. You see the Maintenance menu on the product LCD screen.
  2. Press the up or down arrow button to select Pre-Storage Maint and press the OK button.
  3. Select one of the following and press the OK button:
    • All Nozzles
    • WH (for White ink packs; SC-S80600L)
    • MS (for Metalllic Silver ink packs; SC-S80600L)
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to replace the ink packs with the cleaning packs.
When you are ready to use the product again, turn it on and follow the on-screen instructions.
Note: If you re-install used ink packs that are low on ink, you may need additional ink packs to finish charging the ink system.
