Cleaning the Printer
To keep your printer working at its best, you should clean it 
several times a year.
Tip: 
To keep your Epson product looking like new, make sure you don’t 
place anything on top of the cover or use it as a writing surface. If 
you need to clean the cover, use only a soft, nonabrasive 
microfiber-type cloth.
Warning: 
Don’t touch the gears or any other parts inside the printer.
1. Load several sheets of letter-size paper. 
2. Press the 
paper button to feed and eject paper.
3. Repeat step 2 if necessary.
Caution: 
❏ Do not apply grease to the metal parts under the ink cartridge 
holder.
❏ Never use a hard or abrasive brush, or benzine, alcohol, or paint 
thinner for cleaning; they can damage the printer components 
and case.
❏ Don’t get water on the printer components and don’t spray or 
apply lubricants, oils or grease inside the printer.
❏ Don’t use any cleaning sheets included with special paper; they 
may jam inside the printer.
Transporting the Printer
If you need to ship your printer, you must prepare it for 
transportation by packing the printer in its original box or one 
of a similar size.
Caution: 
When storing or transporting the printer, do not tilt it, stand it up 
vertically, or turn it upside down. Otherwise, ink may leak from the 
cartridges.
Leave the ink cartridges installed. Removing the cartridges can 
dehydrate the print head and may prevent the printer from printing.
1. Turn on the printer. Wait until the print head returns to 
the home (far right) position, then close the printer cover.
2. Turn off the printer and unplug its power cord. Then 
disconnect the power cord and USB cable from the printer.
3. Open the printer cover. Secure the print head with tape, as 
shown below, then close the printer cover.
4. Remove any paper from the printer, then push down the 
paper support extension and close the paper support.
5. Repack the printer and its attachments in the original box 
using the protective materials that came with them.
Keep the printer level as you transport it.
