Do not place objects on top of the power-supply cords and do not allow the power-supply cords to be stepped on or run over. Be particularly careful to keep all the power-supply cords straight at the ends and the points where they enter and leave the transformer. ❏ If you use an extension cord with the product, make sure that the total ampere rating of the devices plugged into the extension cord does not exceed the cord’s ampere rating. Also, make sure that the total ampere rating of all devices plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed the wall outlet’s ampere rating. ❏ If you plan to use the product in Germany, the building installation must be protected by a 10 or 16 amp circuit breaker to provide adequate short-circuit protection and over-current protection for the product. ❏ When connecting the product to a computer or other device with a cable, ensure the correct orientation of the connectors. Each connector has only one correct orientation. Inserting a connector in the wrong orientation may damage both devices connected by the cable. ❏ Place the product on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond the base of the product in all directions. If you place the product by the wall, leave more than 10 cm between the back of the product and the wall.

However, Epson provides special types of paper that is formulated for the ink used in Epson ink jet products, and we recommend using this paper to ensure high-quality results. When loading special paper distributed by Epson, read the instruction sheets packed with the paper first and keep the following points in mind. Note: ❏ Load the paper into the rear paper feed printable side up. The printable side is usually whiter. See the instruction sheets packed with the paper for more information. Some types of paper have cut corners to help identify the correct loading direction. ❏ If the paper is curled, flatten it or curl it slightly in the opposite direction before loading. Printing on curled paper may cause ink to smear on your prints. Do not use the paper that is folded, wavy or torn. Storing paper Return unused paper to the original package as soon as you finish printing. Keep unused paper and prints away from high temperature, humidity, and direct sunlight. Selecting Paper Refer to the table below for the loading capacities of paper and other media. 17 User’s Guide Paper and Media Handling Media Type Size Loading capacity (sheets) Plain paper*1 Letter*2 up to 11mm A4*2 up to 11mm B5*2 up to 11mm A5*2 up to 11mm A6*2 up to 11mm Legal 1 User Defined 1 Envelope #10 10 DL 10 C6 10 Epson Bright White Ink Jet Paper A4*2 80 Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Paper A4 80 Epson Matte Paper - Heavyweight A4 1 *1 Paper with a weight of 64 g/m2 (17 lb) to 90 g/m2 (24 lb). *2 The loading capacity for manual 2-sided printing is 30 sheets.

Do not allow children to drink from or handle the ink bottles and ink bottle cap. ❏ Do not tilt or shake an ink bottle after removing its seal; this can cause leakage. ❏ Be careful not to touch any ink when you handle the ink tank, ink tank cap, and opened ink bottles or ink bottle caps. If ink gets on your skin, wash the area thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets into your eyes, flush them immediately with water. If discomfort or vision problems continue after a thorough flushing, see a doctor immediately. If ink gets into your mouth, spit it out immediately and see a doctor right away. Precautions on refilling ink Read all of the instructions in this section before refilling ink. ❏ Use ink bottles with the correct part number for this product. & “Ink Bottles” on page 102 ❏ Epson recommends the use of genuine Epson ink bottles. Epson cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-genuine ink. The use of non-genuine ink may cause damage that is not covered by Epson’s warranties, and under certain circumstances, may cause erratic product behavior. ❏ Other products not manufactured by Epson may cause damage that is not covered by Epson’s warranties, and under certain circumstances, may cause erratic product behavior. ❏ This product requires careful handling of ink. Ink may splatter when the ink tank is filled or refilled with ink. If ink gets on your clothes or belongings, it may not come off. ❏ To maintain optimum print head performance, some ink is consumed not only during printing but also during maintenance operation such as print head cleaning. ❏ Do not open the ink bottle package until you are ready to fill the ink tank. The ink bottle is vacuum packed to maintain its reliability. If you leave an ink bottle unpacked for a long time before using it, normal printing may not be possible. ❏ If the ink level is below the lower limit on the ink tank, refill the ink soon. Continued use of the product when the ink level is below the lower limit on the tank could damage the product. 61 User’s Guide Refilling Ink ❏ After bringing an ink bottle inside from a cold storage site, allow it to warm up at room temperature for at least three hours before using it. ❏ Store ink bottles in a cool, dark place. ❏ Store the ink bottles in the same environment as the product. When storing or transporting the ink bottle after opening the sealed bottle, avoid temperature changes, impacts, shaking or tilting the bottle; otherwise ink may leak even if you tighten the cap on the bottle. Be sure to keep the ink bottle upright when tightening the cap, and take measures to prevent ink from leaking when you transport the bottle. Ink bottle specifications ❏ Epson recommends using the ink bottle before the date printed on the package. ❏ Some ink is consumed in the initial charging. In order to produce high quality printouts, the print head in your product will be fully charged with ink. ❏ Quoted yields may vary depending on the images that you are printing, the paper type that you are using, the frequency of your prints and environmental conditions such as temperature. ❏ Although the ink bottles may contain recycled materials, this does not affect product function or performance. Checking the Ink Level To confirm the actual ink remaining, visually check the ink level in the product’s ink tank. cImportant: If the ink level is below the lower limit on the ink tank, fill it to the upper line on the ink tank. Continued use of the product when the ink level is below the lower limit on the tank could damage the product. Refilling the Ink Tank Ink can be refilled at any time. A Open the ink tank unit cover, and then remove the cap of the ink tank.
