How to maintain for long term storage (more than one week) and what are precautions?

  • Please follow the instructions below when not using the machine for more than one week.

Procedures for long term storage can be found here.


Please check the following to prevent ink path clogging and to protect the nozzles.

(1) Please keep the main power switch on during long-term storage.
   The nozzle clogging prevention function works automatically to protect the printhead nozzles.
   Leaving the main power turned off for a long period of time may cause the nozzles to be clogged.

(2) Please check the ink remaining level.
   Ink and washing liquid suction works during cleaning operation.
   During ink suction, nozzle wash does not start if "INK END" or "INK NEAR END" is detected.
   We recommend setting an ink cartridge/bottle with sufficient remaining amount, as ink is consumed
  during regular maintenance while the printer is not in use.

(3) Dispose the waste ink in the waste ink tank.
   If there is not enough remaining capacity of the waste ink tank, it becomes full during long-term
   storage and the nozzle protection does not function normally.
   Also, if there is a discrepancy between the amount of waste ink counted by the machine and the actual
   amount of waste ink, it may overflow during long-term storage.

Procedures to replace the waste ink tank can be found on “How do I replace the waste ink tank?“.
