  • Page 64: Adhesion Of Ink

    Chapter 1 1.7.1.2 Adhesion of Ink 0013-3747 (1) Ink passages Be careful not to touch the ink passages of the printer to prevent the printer, workbench, ands, and clothes from being stained with ink. The ink flows through the ink tank unit, carriage unit, purge unit, maintenance jet tray, maintenance cartridge, and the ink tubes that relay ink to individual units.
  • Page 65 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.
  • Page 66: Electric Parts

    Chapter 1 1.7.1.3 Electric Parts 0016-8168 The electric parts of the printer are activated when the printer is connected to the AC power supply. At the left rear of the printer are the main controller, power supply, and interface connector. The carriage PCB is incorporated in the carriage unit, and the operation panel is on the upper right top cover.
  • Page 67 Chapter 1 MEMO: If the nozzles are clogged or an ink suction problem occurs, white lines can appear on the printout a constant frequency or color dulling can occur. If this problem is not resolved by cleaning operations, replace the printhead with a new one.
  • Page 68 Chapter 1 3. When the printer is not used for a long time Keep the printhead installed in the printer even when it is not used for an extended period of time. If the printhead is left uninstalled, a printing failure may arise from closed nozzles due to depositing of foreign matter or dried ink when it is reinstalled.
  • Page 69: Ink Tank

    Chapter 1 1.7.2.2 Ink Tank 0013-1924 1. Unpacking the Ink Tank Do not unpack the ink tank until you are ready to install it. When installing the ink tank, be sure to shake it slowly 7 to 8 times before unpacking it. Otherwise, the ink ingredients may precipitate and degrade the print quality.
  • Page 70: Handling The Printer

    Chapter 1 1.7.2.3 Handling the Printer 0016-8169 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 or change their electrical characteristics. In particular, never touch the printhead contacts.
  • Page 71 Chapter 1 2. Fixing the Carriage After completion of printing, the carriage is mechanically locked by the lock arm in the purge unit at the same moment the printhead is capped. Before transporting the printer, secure the carriage at its home position using belt stoppers[1] so that the carriage does not become separated from the lock arm and damage or ink does not leak.
