Transporting the Printer

If you need to transport your printer, carefully prepare and repack it as described below using the original box (or a similar box that the printer fits snugly into) and packing materials. Follow the steps below.

  • When storing or transporting the printer, do not tilt it, stand it up vertically, or turn it upside down. Otherwise, ink may leak from the cartridge.
  • Leave the ink cartridges installed. Removing the cartridges can dehydrate the printer head and may prevent the printer from printing.

Plug in the printer, then turn on the printer. Wait until the print head returns to the home position, then close the top printer cover. Turn off the printer, and then unplug the printer.

Disconnect the interface cable from the printer.

Remove the paper from the sheet feeder.

Open the top printer cover again. Secure the ink cartridge holder to the printer with tape as shown below, then close the top printer cover.

Insert the output tray, close the paper support.

Attach the protective materials to both sides of the printer.

Repack the printer in the original box.

Keep the printer level during transport.

Be sure to remove the protective materials and tape from the printer before using it again.
