When you start printing after replacing the ink tank, the printer starts cleaning the print head automatically. Do not perform any other operations until the printer completes the cleaning of the print head. While cleaning is in progress, the POWER lamp is flashing white.
If the print head is out of alignment, as indicated by misaligned printed ruled lines or similar symptoms, adjust the print head position.
The printer may make noise during operation.
