    Chapter 1 - Although the ink is not harmful to the human body, it contains organic solvents. Ink may contaminate the surrounding parts. Carry out the work with due caution. If your hands are stained with ink, wash them with a plenty of water. Be careful not to allow the ink to get into your mouth or eyes.

Capping The printer will perform the capping operation when printing has ended or during standby due to an error, in order to protect the printhead and avoid ink leakage. If the power cord is accidentally unplugged, turn off the Power button, reconnect the power cord, and then turn on the Power button.
