How do I perform a nozzle check from the control panel?

  • You can do a nozzle check from the control panel by doing the following:
    1. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder.
    2. Press the Setup button.
    3. Press or until you see Nozzle Check, then press Start.
    4. Check the nozzle check pattern that prints to see if there are gaps in the lines.
    5. Nozzles need cleaning
      Nozzles are clean
    6. If there are no gaps, the print head is clean and you can continue printing.
    7. If there are gaps or the pattern is faint, clean the print head.
