Transporting the Printer

If you move the printer some distance, you need to prepare it for transportation in its original box or one of a similar size.
When storing or transporting the printer, avoid tilting it, placing it vertically, or turning it upside down; otherwise ink may leak from the cartridges.
Leave the ink cartridges installed; removing the cartridges for transportation may damage the printer.
The illustrations in this section show the CX8300/DX8400 Series.
Remove all paper from the sheet feeder and make sure the printer is off.
Open the scanner unit and make sure the print head is in the home position on the right.
If the print head is not in the home position on the right, turn on the printer and wait until the print head locks in the far right position. Then turn off the printer.
Close the scanner unit.
Unplug the power cord from the outlet, then disconnect the USB cable from your computer.
Close the paper support and the output tray.
Repack the printer in the box, using the protective materials that came with it.
Keep the printer level as you transport it. After you move it, remove the tape securing the print head. If you notice a decline in print quality, run a cleaning cycle or align the print head. For instructions, see the Printing Guide.
