Transporting the Printer

If you need to ship your printer or transport it a long distance, prepare it for transportation as follows.
  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Unplug the power cable.
  3. Disconnect any other interface cables.
  4. Remove all the paper from the rear MP tray and cassette.
  5. Close the feeder guard, paper support, and output tray as shown.

  6. Pack the printer in its original box or one of a similar size using the protective materials that came with it.
  7. Keep the printer level during transportation; otherwise the ink may leak.
If print quality has declined when you print again in a new location, clean and align the print head.
