How do I replace the maintenance box?

  • Make sure you have a new maintenance box before you begin.

    Do not reuse a maintenance box that has been removed and left uninstalled for more than a week.

    Note: You cannot print or clean the print head while the maintenance box is full, but you can perform tasks that do not require ink, such as scanning.

    Note: If you see a message about the borderless ink pad on the LCD screen, contact Epson for support. The borderless ink pad is not a user-replaceable part.

    1. Make sure the product is not printing.
    2. Remove the new maintenance box from its package.

      Do not touch the green chip on the maintenance box. Doing so may prevent normal operation and printing.

    3. Use a flat-head screwdriver to loosen the screw on the maintenance box cover as shown, then remove the cover.

    4. Grasp the maintenance box as shown and pull it out of its holder.

      Note: Do not tilt the used maintenance box until after it is sealed in the plastic bag; otherwise ink may leak.

      Warning: If ink gets on your skin, wash it thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets into your eyes, flush them immediately with water. If ink gets into your mouth, spit it out and see a doctor right away. Keep the maintenance box out of the reach of children and do not drink the ink.

    5. Place the used maintenance box in the plastic bag that came with the new maintenance box. Seal the bag and dispose of it carefully.

    6. Insert the new maintenance box into the holder and push it all the way in until it clicks into place.

      Note: Make sure you insert the maintenance box in the correct direction.

    7. Insert the maintenance box cover and tighten the screw to secure the cover.

      If you cannot re-attach the cover, the maintenance box may not be installed correctly. Remove and re-install the maintenance box.
    8. Check the message on the LCD screen, then press the OK button to confirm.

      Note: Once a maintenance box has been installed in a product it cannot be used with other products.
