Q:
How do I install my ink cartridge for the first time?
A:
First Ink Cartridge Installation (takes approximately two minutes). Turn the printer on. The power light will flash, the ink out lights will come on, and the ink cartridge holders will automatically move left to the installation position. Remove the yellow tape seals from the black and color ink cartridges. Do not remove the blue label from the top of either ink cartridge. If the blue label has been removed from an ink cartridge, the cartridge will not function correctly and it will need to be replaced Install the cartridges into the printer. Make sure the labels on the ink cartridges are facing up. The black ink cartridge goes on the left and the color ink cartridge goes on the right. Once the ink cartridges have been inserted into their holders, push down the ink cartridge clamps until they lock in place, and then press the cleaning button to begin charging the ink delivery system. Charging can take up to two minutes and is complete when the power light stops flashing. With the new IEEE-1284.4, D4 mode parallel port technology and the Status Monitor 3, you can connect the printer to the PC and the Status Monitor 3 will walk you through the initial cartridge installation. This only works for the first cartridge installation.
