How should I transport or store 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, four or more people should lift and carry it using the hand positions shown:

    • Avoid tilting the product, positioning it vertically, or turning it upside down; otherwise ink may leak.
    • Leave the ink pack installed; otherwise the print head can dry out.
    • Leave the maintenance box installed; otherwise ink may leak.

    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. Remove all the paper from the product.
    3. Unplug the power cable.
    4. Disconnect any connected cables.
    5. Close the paper stopper on the output tray, if necessary, and push in the output tray. Lift and remove the output tray from the product. Store it separately.

    6. Close the ink pack tray cover and lock it.

    7. If the optional printer stand and paper cassettes are installed, uninstall and remove them before lifting the product.
    8. Place the product in its original packing materials, if possible, or use equivalent materials with cushioning around the product. Make sure the box adequately protects the product control panel.

    Keep the product level during transportation.
