Q:
How do I test the printer without using a computer?
A:
You can run a nozzle check to help determine if the WorkForce is operating properly. Follow these steps:
  1. Turn off the WorkForce.


  2. If your computer is connected, disconnect the USB cable.


  3. Load plain paper in the sheet feeder.


  4. Hold down the   button as you press the   power button to turn the WorkForce back on. Hold down both buttons until the   power light begins to flash, then release the buttons.


  5. The WorkForce begins printing the nozzle check pattern.


  6. If the page is printed, your WorkForce is operating properly. The problem may be caused by your computer, cable, software, or setting selections.

    If the pattern on the page has gaps, clean or align the print head.
