Using Your Ink Jet Printer Safely and Efficiently
The EPSON Stylus COLOR uses two ink cartridges, one black
and one color. Inside the print head, tiny spray units shoot ink
from the cartridges onto the page to form characters or graphics.
The printer will be damaged if you use ink or cartridges
not manufactured by EPSON or which do not meet EPSON's
specifications. Do not attempt to refill ink cartridges manually.
If you use substandard products with your EPSON printer,
you will damage the print heads and void your warranty.
Under normal circumstances, ink will not come out of the
cartridge. If it does get on your skin, wash it off with soap
and water. If it gets in your eyes, flush them immediately
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children.
Once you install an ink cartridge, do not open the clamp or
remove the cartridge except to replace it with a new one.
The cartridge may become unusable otherwise.
Install an ink cartridge immediately after you remove it
from its package. Leaving a cartridge unpacked for a long
time before use may result in poor print quality.
Do not use an ink cartridge beyond the date printed on the
cartridge carton. Use up the ink cartridges within six
months of installing them.
Do not shake an ink cartridge; this can cause leakage.
Do not put your hand inside the printer or touch the
cartridge during printing.
Before you turn off the printer, make sure that the print
head is capped (in the far right position). The print head is
capped when no data is received for several seconds; you
can also cap the print head by pressing the Pause button.
