5. Close the Top Cover.

Install the FINE Cartridges

For the FINE Cartridges compatible with this printer, refer to the back cover of the Quick Start Guide.

1. Remove the Black FINE Cartridge from its box.

2. Remove the protective tape gently.

  • Do not touch the electrical contacts (A) or Print Head Nozzles (B) on a FINE Cartridge.The printer may not print out properly if you touch it.
  • Do not drop or shake FINE Cartridges as this may cause the ink to leak out and stain your clothes and hands.
  • Do not reattach the protective tape once you have removed it.
  • Be careful not to stain your hands or surrounding work area with ink on the removed protective tape.

3. Insert the Black FINE Cartridge slightly slanted into the left slot (B) .

  • Make sure the printer is turned on and the Power lamp is flashing green.
  • Make sure the FINE Cartridge Holder has moved to the left.

4. Push up the FINE Cartridge until it clicks into place.

  • For correct printer operation, make sure the FINE Cartridge is securely inserted.
  • If the Top Cover is left open for more than 10 minutes, the FINE Cartridge Holder moves to the right side. Close and reopen the Top Cover to return the holder to the left.

5. Repeat the procedure for the Color FINE Cartridge, inserting it into the right slot (C) .

6. Close the Top Cover.

The Alarm lamp on the printer still flashes orange if a FINE Cartridge is not installed properly. Open the Top Cover and make sure that position of all the FINE Cartridges is appropriate.

Once you have installed the FINE Cartridges, the Power lamp will flash green. Wait for about one to two minutes, until the Power lamp stops flashing and changes to steady, non-flashing green and the printer has stopped making operating noises, before proceeding.

7. Hardware setup is now complete.
