Checklist before Moving the Printer

  1. Turn the printer off. Disconnect the power cord.
    Never disconnect the power cord without first turning off the printer .
  2. To lift the printer, grip it at the center of each side by the hand recesses provided.
  3. Make sure the covers and trays are closed. Secure them with tape. Attach the tape at the same area you removed at the time of installation.
  4. Disconnect the power cord. Tape the power cord to the back of the printer.
  5. Do a test print to confirm that the printer operates correctly after you move it to another location. Do the cleaning procedures with the printer driver, if necessary.
  6. Always remove the cassette before moving the machine.
  7. When moving the machine a short distance in a building, make sure the ink cartridges remain set in position.
  8. When moving the machine a long distance such as for off-site repair, ink cartridges
    must be removed. After moving the machine, reinstall the ink cartridges by fully
    inserting them, and then leave them installed in the machine 


To avoid ink spillage, always hold the printer level when you move it.
Work carefully to avoid dropping it or colliding with other objects in the work
