Replacing Ink Cartridges
Make sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin.
Caution:
Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink. Cartridges are
vacuum packed to maintain reliability.
Leave the expended cartridge installed until you have obtained a replacement, or the
ink remaining in the print head nozzles may dry out.
1. Turn on the product.
2. If an ink cartridge is low or expended, you see a
message on the LCD screen indicating which
color to replace. Press OK.
If you're replacing a cartridge before you see a message on the LCD screen,
press Setup, select Maintenance, then select Ink Cartridge Replacement.
3. Raise the scanner.
4. Open the cartridge cover. Then squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift it up.
Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.
Warning:
If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets
into your eyes, flush them immediately with water. Keep ink cartridges out of the
reach of children and don't drink the ink.
5. Before you open the new cartridge package, shake
it gently four or five times. Then remove it from
the package.
6. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the
ink cartridge.
Caution:
Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink will
leak. Do not touch the green chip on the front of the
cartridge. This can damage the ink cartridge.
