How To

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, don't tilt it, put it on its side or turn it upside down. Otherwise ink may leak from the cartridge.
  • Leave the ink cartridges installed when you transport the printer. Transporting the printer with the cartridges removed can damage the printer.

Open the printer cover and make sure that the print head is in the home (far right) position. If not, turn on the printer and wait until the print head returns to the home position. Close the printer cover, and then turn off and unplug the printer.

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 the protective material tape as shown below, and then close the printer cover.

Push in the output tray.

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.
