Powering Down

The power down sequence is the reverse of the power up sequence. Make sure the Print Head Carriage is over the Maintenance Station. If it is not power the Printer off in the back and restart to return all components to home position. Power the printer down from the Control Panel power key and then the power switch located on the back. It is recommended that the printer be kept powered on at all times when ink is loaded in the system, even if the printer is not used, unless the printer is filled with cleaning solution and is in storage. Keeping the printer powered on prevents the Print Head from drying. A minimal amount of ink is used to keep the Print Head wet. If the Print Head dries up, the Head Cleaning operation to restore it will consume more ink than keeping the Print Head wet during idle times. In certain cases, the dried Print Head may not recover.
