How do I install my ink cartridge for the first time?
Follow these instructions to install the ink cartridges for the first time.
1. After removing all tape and packing material, plug the printer's power cord into a grounded outlet.
2. Lower the printer's output tray and open the cover.
3. Press the power button to turn on the printer. The power light flashes and the black and color ink out lights come on. The black ink cartridge holder moves slightly left to the loading position.
4. Unwrap the ink cartridges. Then remove only the yellow part of the tape seal on top, as shown. Don't pull off the blue portion or remove the clear seal on the bottom of the cartridge.
5. Lift up the black ink cartridge clamp.
6. Place the black ink cartridge in its holder with the label facing up and toward the back of the printer. Then press the clamp down until it locks into place.
7. Press the cleaning button to move the color ink cartridge holder into loading position.
8. Repeat steps 5 and 6 to install the color ink cartridge.
9. Press the cleaning button to begin charging the ink delivery system, and then close the printer cover. Charging takes about two minutes. The power light flashes and the printer makes various sounds until it's finished. Don't turn off the printer or interrupt the charging process or it will start over, using more ink than necessary. Charging is finished when the power light stops flashing and stays on.
