Transporting and Storing the Printer

When you need to store the printer or transport it when moving or for repairs, follow the steps below to pack the printer.

  1. Turn off the printer by pressing the button.

  2. Make sure the power light turns off, and then unplug the power cord.


    Unplug the power cord when the power light is off. Otherwise, the print head does not return to the home position causing the ink to dry, and printing may become impossible.

  3. Disconnect all cables such as the power cord and USB cable.

  4. Remove all of the paper from the printer.

  5. Make sure there are no originals on the printer.

  6. Make sure to install the cap onto the ink tank securely.

  7. Close the ink tank cover securely.

  8. Prepare to pack the printer as shown below.

  9. Place the printer in the plastic bag and fold it closed.

  10. Pack the printer in its box using the protective materials.

  • When storing or transporting the printer, place the printer in the plastic bag and fold it closed. Avoid tilting the printer, placing it vertically, or turning it upside down; otherwise ink may leak.

  • When storing or transporting an ink bottle, do not tilt the bottle and do not subject it to impacts or temperature changes. Otherwise, ink may leak even if the cap on the ink bottle is tightened securely. Be sure to keep the ink bottle upright when tightening the cap, and take precautions to prevent ink from leaking when transporting the bottle, for example, putting the bottle in a bag.

  • Do not put opened ink bottles in the box with printer.

If print quality has declined the next time you print, clean and align the print head.
