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.

Open the printer cover and make sure that the print head is in the home (far right) position. If not, plug in the printer and wait until the print head returns to the home position. Then close the printer cover and unplug the printer.

Leave the ink cartridges installed when you transport the printer. Removing the cartridges during transport can damage the printer.

To remove the output tray, lift it and pull it out.

Disconnect the interface cable from the printer.

Remove the paper from the sheet feeder and remove the paper support.

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

Attach the protective materials to both sides of the printer.

Repack the printer and power cord in the original box.

Keep the printer level during transport.
