Cleaning the Print Head
Clean the print head if lines are missing or if horizontal white streaks are present in the printed nozzle check
pattern. Cleaning unclogs the nozzles and restores the print head condition. Cleaning the print head
consumes ink, so clean the print head only when necessary.
You need to prepare: a sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper
Check that printer is turned on.
2. Load a sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the cassette.
After inserting the cassette into the printer, the paper setting confirmation screen appears on the touch
screen. If the page size shown on the touch screen is A4 or Letter, select Yes. If not, select Change
and change the page size to A4 or Letter.
• Be sure to load paper in the cassette. If you load paper on the rear tray, the nozzle check pattern
is not printed.
