Handling The Printer - Canon W6400 Series Service Manual

Hide thumbs


Chapter 1
When you press down the ink tank cover, the needle enters the ink supply unit, which allows ink to flow between the printer and ink tank.
Do not raise or lower the ink tank lever, except when replacing the ink tank. Handling the Printer

1. Precautions against static electricity
Certain clothing may generate static electricity, causing an electrical charge to build up on your body. Such a charge can damage electrical devices.
In particular, never touch the printhead contacts.
2. Fixing the carriage
After printing, the carriage caps the printhead and uses the lock arm inside the purge unit to apply a mechanical lock.
When transporting the printer, use belt stoppers to secure the carriage at the carriage home position so that the carriage does not become separated from
the lock arm. This will prevent damage and ink leakage during transportation.
3. Replacing the maintenance cartridge
When the maintenance cartridge detects that tank is full, the "Replace MT cartridge" error appears. In this case the maintenance cartridge must be replaced.
The printer will not operate until the error is canceled.
Be careful that the waste ink does not splash when you remove the used maintenance cartridge from the printer.
This printer has an EEPROM in the maintenance cartridge and the maintenance cartridge status is controlled by the engine firmware which reads and writes
the content of that EEPROM. Therefore, the counter information need not be initialized when the maintenance cartridge is replaced.
