    • Prepare your Cleaning Cartridge set for use.

    • Make sure that each of the five Cleaning Cartridges is filled with cleaning solution.

    • Fill them in the same manner that you would an ink cartridge.

    • Use a clean syringe; if necessary, unscrew the plastic tip from a syringe and clean both it and the inside of the syringe with warm water.

    • The cleaning cartridges should be filled at least three-fourths of the way with solution. You will need to refill them once during the process in order to fully flush the machine.

  2. Make sure the printer is turned on and in its resting state. Press the Ink Button once and wait for the carriage to move across the width and back to ink labels. If the carriage arrow indicator stops at a ink label, push the Ink Button again until the white arrow is in the reset position, about an inch-and-a-half past the yellow label.

    • Open the cover of the carriage to expose the cartridges.

    • Put the round plastic breather plugs back into each cartridge. This will prevent them from leaking when left of the machine.

    • Remove the ink cartridges and replace them with the Cleaning Cartridges.

    • The two black Cleaning Cartridges are interchangeable, while the three color ones must go into their respective slots.

    • Press the Ink Button and the carriage will move back over the capping station.

    • Wait about 45 seconds for the initial prime to finish.

    • If the Ink Light stays on, then either a cartridge is not in it's respective slot or a chip failed to contact the pins. Press the Ink Button again and the carriage will move to indicate which cartridges need to be set again.

    • Remember to reset the cartridges while the carriage is in the reset position, past the yellow label! The chips do not reset when the arrow indicator is pointing to an ink label.

    • If the prime occurred successfully and the Ink Light stay off, then you are ready to run the necessary Ink Charges.

  4. Open the Adjustment Program. This is found on the software disc in its own folder. You can run it right off of the disc. Double-click to open the file called AdjProg.exe or just AdjProg. Click Accept. Then click Particular Adjustment Mode.

  5. Click the Ink Charge button.
    • Click the Ink Charge button.

    • The Ink Charge is a powerful variant of the Head Cleaning, and is used in order to fully flush the print head nozzles.

    • An Ink Charge usually takes 60 seconds.

    • Once the first one finishes, click the Ink Charge button again to run a second one.

    • Watch the fluid being pumped through the waste tank hose. It should start to look lighter.

    • Click the Ink Charge button a third time after the second charge finishes.

    • The goal of flushing is to replace all the ink in the print head with solution and flush out the capping station pad. You will want to perform at least five Ink Charges to fully flush the head and capping pad.

    • Keep clicking Ink Charge (after the machine is finished with a current charge) until you get an Ink Out message. This usually occurs on the third or fourth Charge.

    • When the Adjustment Program displays an Ink Out error after having clicked the Ink Charge button, you will notice that the Ink Light on the printer is red as well.

    • Click OK on the error message.

    • Press the Ink Button on the printer. There is a chance that the Ink Light will go out and the carriage will slide right to the reset position. If this is the case, open the cover and refill all the cartridges one by one.

    • The two black cartridges will likely be empty. The color ones should still be about half full.

    • Replace the cartridges and hit the Ink Button.

    • If the carriage did stop at a label (the two black labels most likely), press the Ink Button until the carriage is in the reset position. Open the cover and refill the cartridges one by one.

    • After refilling the cartridges in the reset position, close the cover and press the Ink Button to return the carriage to the capping station. If the Ink Light had turned off during this refill process, and now is on, reset the chips like normal, again using the Ink Button.

  6. Once the cartridges are refilled and the Ink Light is off, run two more Ink Charges from the Adjustment Program.
    • Once the cartridges are refilled and the Ink Light is off, run two more Ink Charges from the Adjustment Program.

    • The fluid in the waste tank hose should be transparent by this point.

    • Make sure that you have performed a total of five successful Ink Charges!

    • Press the Ink Button to move the carriage to the reset position. If it stops at an ink label, press the Ink Button again until it moves to reset.

    • Push the plastic breathers back into the Cleaning Cartridges. Close the carriage cover.

    • Rock the carriage back and forth until it unlocks and push it to the center of the printer.

    • Clean the capping station pad and gears with a dry swab to mop up any extra fluid.

    • Press the Ink Button to move the carriage back over the capping station.

  7. Turn the printer off at the breaker. Make sure the waste bottle is empty.
    • Turn the printer off at the breaker.

    • Make sure the waste bottle is empty.

    • Make sure the plastic breathers are in the Cleaning Cartridges.
