Chapter 3 Maintaining and Transporting the Printer

1
The EPSON Stylus Pro 9000 series printers require very little maintenance 
to keep working at their best. This chapter describes the following routine 
procedures:
Running a nozzle check
Running a cleaning cycle
Aligning the print head
Replacing ink cartridges
Replacing the paper cutter blade
Cleaning the printer
Transporting the printer
Replacing the waste ink system
Running a Nozzle Check
The nozzle check prints a pattern of dots that lets you see if any print head 
nozzles are clogged. If any dots are missing, you can run a cleaning cycle to 
clear the nozzles.
Follow these steps to print the nozzle check:
1. Load a sheet of paper in the printer, following the instructions on 
page 1-15. (You can print the nozzle check on roll paper, but you will 
use more paper.)
2. Press the
 SelecType
 button on the control panel until you see 
TEST 
PRINT MENU
 on the display.
3. Press the 
Item
 button. You see 
NOZZLE CHECK=PRINT 
on the 
display.
