Replacing the Paper Cutter Blade
If you notice that your paper isn’t cut cleanly, the cutter blade may need to 
be replaced. If you use the blade to cut heavy stock or non-EPSON media, 
you may need to replace it more often. You can also check the status of your 
cutter by printing the status check sheet or using the Printer Status menu on 
the control panel. See page 2-3 or 2-4 for instructions.
To obtain a new cutter blade (part number C815131), contact your dealer.
To replace the cutter blade, you first need to remove the used blade, as 
described in the following section.
