How often should I shake the ink cartridges?
To maintain print quality, you must do the following:
- Shake the White ink cartridges at the start of every working day or when a message is displayed.
- Shake the color ink cartridges at least once a month.
Shake each cartridge as shown below. For new ink cartridges, rapidly shake each cartridge for about 15 seconds. For White ink, flip the cartridge over as shown and repeat.
Do not touch the IC chip on the end of each cartridge; otherwise, the cartridge may not be recognized, or the printer may not print properly.
