4-2. Power supply of printer
Even when the printer is placed in standby mode, such maintenance as white ink circulation is performed automatically.
PLEASE LEAVE THE PRINTER POWERED ON 24 HOURS A DAY.
Every time this printer is powered on or off, maintenance operations are performed to keep its print heads in good condition.
Turning on and off the power frequently causes more ink to be consumed because of the maintenance operations. In order to
reduce the ink consumption, it is advisable to keep the power turned on for proper use of the printer.
4-2-1. Turning on the power
Please refer to the Setup Manual, after the unpacking procedures and installation procedures are completed.
Please check the following points, before connecting the power cord to the printer:
Ascertain whether the cartridges, wiper cleaner, flushing receiver, etc. are mounted correctly in place.
Ascertain whether the ink tube is connected to the print head correctly.
Ascertain whether the waste ink tube is inserted into the waste ink tank which has been made available.
Ascertain whether the rear cover is put in position.
Ascertain whether there is enough cleaning solvent in the cleaning liquid tank and the tank is mounted correctly
Ascertain whether the required space (at least approx. 11.8 in. (30 cm)) for the platen to be moved forward is
kept and the min. clearance (7.9 in. (20 cm)) is maintained at the back side of the printer for exhausting air from
the exhaust opening.
Connect the power cord included with the printer to the power cord insertion port.
Insert the power plug into an electric outlet.
Make sure that the printer's earth terminal is properly grounded.
With the main unit's cover being closed, turn on the power to the printer.
Never power off the printer while it is in operation. Otherwise, the printer may be damaged.
Do not activate the printer with the ink tube not connected to the print head. Otherwise, the printer may be damaged.
Make sure that no flushing foam extends off the outboard end portions of the flushing receiver. If it sticks out of the end
portions, it may interfere with any nozzles and may result in non-ejection of ink-jet droplets.
If the printer is activated after having been off for a long time, the maintenance operation including white ink circulation will
be performed for up to 40 minutes.
