22.214.171.124 Transporting the Printer
When transporting the printer, the printhead must be capped and stay in the carriage.
In spite of this precaution, shocks incurred during transportation can damage the printhead.
Print the nozzle check pattern before making preparations for transporting the printer, pint the nozzle check pattern again after installing the printer at the new lo-
cation, and then compare the two printouts.
If any problem such as nozzle clogging cannot be resolved by printhead cleaning, replace the printhead with a new one.
This section describes how to transport the printer.
The procedure depends on the mode of transportation. Select the appropriate transportation level from the following transportation modes.
1. Transportation mode
- Moving the printer on the same floor with no difference in grade (without tilting the printer): LEVEL 0
- Moving the printer on floor where there is difference in grade or by truck (by tilting the printer): LEVEL 1
- Moving the printer by plane or ship (tilting direction of printer is unpredictable): LEVEL 2
- Moving the printer in low temperature environment such as sub zero: LEVEL 2
- Moving the printer on its end: LEVEL 3
When lifting or moving the printer, be sure to hold the handle at bottom left and right of the printer. Holding the printer by its cover can deform the cover.
