PAPER & INK

This printer ships with a full set of ink cartridges and some ink from the first set is used for priming the printer. Yields will vary considerably based on images printed, print settings, paper type, frequency of use and ambient temperature.

When an ink cartridge needs replacing, you cannot continue copying or printing without replacing the relevant cartridge, even if other cartridges don’t need replacing.

You should leave a cartridge needing replacement installed in the printer until you have obtained a replacement. Doing otherwise may cause ink remaining in the print head nozzles to dry out and affect printer operation.

To ensure ongoing print quality and trouble-free operation, a variable amount of ink will be present in a cartridge that is low on ink after the “Replace Cartridge” indicator comes on.

This printer will use a quantity of ink from each cartridge for print-head cleaning and maintenance and will use ink from all cartridges for both black and colour printing.

Warning to Epson printer owners. Many well known third party companies claim their inkjet printing papers are compatible with all Epson inkjet printers. Epson has reports from many customers who have used third party paper and have been very disappointed with the results. When the same customers have changed to genuine Epson paper, they have been amazed and pleased with the colour and quality of their prints. Epson recommends that you do not use any non genuine printing papers if you want to get the best results from your Epson printer. Epson printers are very carefully tuned to ensure Epson inks and Epson's patented MicroPiezo printhead produce the best quality prints using carefully selected Epson paper.

All other brands of printing papers are not wholly compatible with the printer.
