General suggestions for all models:
— Keep out of the reach of children.
— Do not dispose of electronic products in general waste.
— Before use, wear gloves (included) to prevent contamination.
— Store the cartridge in its original box to prevent ink from drying out.
Also, do not change Epson’s ink cartridge over your dog! This is not a joke, folks…
What do you need before the installation:
- Do not touch the chip or the ink port of your cartridges. It might turn your printer into an ink drama queen with a poor connection and non-recognition problems.
- Do not remove the protective seal covering the ink port.
- Avoid mixing cartridges from different suppliers together. First of all, our cartridges will be jealous, and secondly, the printer may not recognize them correctly.
- If you last used your printer long ago, running the printhead cleaning cycle is a good idea. Do this up to 3 times to get rid of any dried ink.
