How should I transport my product?

  • If you need to store your product or transport it a long distance, prepare it for transportation as described here.

    Caution: During transportation and storage, follow these guidelines:

    • Because the product is heavy, two or more people should lift and carry it using the hand positions shown here:

    • When carrying the printer, avoid tilting it more than 10° or the printer may fall.
    • If additional paper cassettes are installed, uninstall them before lifting the printer.
    • Avoid tilting the product, placing it vertically, or turning it upside down; otherwise ink may leak.
    • Leave the ink packs installed. Removing the packs can dry out the print head and may prevent the product from printing.

    Note: Before storing your product for a long period, replace low, expended, or expired ink to help prevent the print head from drying out. Store your product in a cool, dry place.

    1. Turn off the product.
    2. Wait for the  power light to turn off, then unplug the power cable.
    3. Disconnect any connected cables or devices.
    4. Remove all the paper from the product.
    5. Lift up the printer cover.
    6. Make sure the print head is in the home position on the right.
    7. Secure the print head to the case with tape as shown.

      Do not touch the translucent film inside the product; otherwise, you may damage your product.

    8. Lower the printer cover.
    9. Unlock and open the front cover.

    10. If you have the protective material that shipped with your product, use it to secure the ink pack trays.

    11. When you are finished, close and lock the front cover.
    12. Uninstall any optional paper cassettes, if necessary.

      Note: Uninstall the cassettes by performing the installation steps in reverse.

    13. Prepare the printer for packing as shown below.

    14. Remove the output tray.

    15. Place the product in its original packing materials, if possible, or use equivalent materials with cushioning around the product.
