Notes

Troubleshooting

Printed Colors Are Not Correct

When the printer sits idle for several months, the ink may start to dry. Running a few small print jobs through will usually clear the jets and allow normal printing.

If not, run the printer diagnostic:

  • Ink Menu - Enter - Troubleshooting - Enter

Printing PDF from Adobe Reader does not print

If printing a poster from Adobe Reader sends a print job of around 125Kb to the print spooler, try to print the PDF from LibreOffice Draw.
