Maintenance
  • Take 3-4 lint-free Tech wipes (1022096G) and fold them so you create about 4-6 layers
  • Hold the lint-free wipes firmly against the head with a gloved hand so any purged ink goes directly into the wipes
  • Press the priming button for 1 to 2 seconds

    Note that the ink pressure status LED will turn red during this period
  • Keep holding the lint-free wipes firmly on the nozzles for 15-20 seconds so all the purged ink settles and goes into the wipes

Note that the ink pressure status LED should be green at the end of this process, indicating that the manifold pressure has stabilized

  • Wipe in line with the nozzles toward yourself
  • Use a clean lint-free wipe to wipe any excess ink that is left on the print head

This procedure will wick excess ink from the nozzles so they do not weep. The manual purging caused an excess of ink pressure that is removed with this technique.

Follow ink SDS for cleanup and disposal methods. Dispose of waste material in accordance with applicable regulations.
