  • Before turning off the power, perform cleaning of around the heads, the capping station, the wiper and [Custody Wash] for storage.

[Cleaning the Head and the Area around]

[Cleaning the Capping station]

[Cleaning the Wiper]

[Custody Wash]

Please see here for the procedure of [CUSTODY WASH].

Please check the following to prevent ink path clogging and to protect the nozzles.

(1) Please keep the main power switch on during long-term storage.
The nozzle clogging prevention function works automatically to protect the printhead nozzles.
Leaving the main power turned off for a long period of time may cause the nozzles to be clogged.

(2) Check the ink remaining level.
During the cleaning operation, suction of cleaning liquid and ink will take place.
During ink suction, nozzle wash does not start if "INK END" or "INK NEAR END" is detected.
We recommend setting an ink bottle with sufficient remaining amount, as ink is consumed during regular maintenance while the printer is not in use.

(3) Check the amount of the waste ink remaining in the waste ink tank.
Waste liquid may overflow during long-term storage if there is not enough remaining capacity.
Nozzle protection does not function normally when "Check waste ink" is displayed.
Please visually check the waste ink level and see the waste water level on the Water Ink Reset menu and dispose the waste ink accordingly.
* For information on how to reset the waste ink amount, please see here.
