Note: Only authorized ink cartridges will be recognized by the printer. An empty cartridge holder or invalid or unprogrammed ink cartridge displays as “-----------”. An ink cartridge that is programmed, but not recognized by this printer, displays as “???????”.

To select or change the ink type:

  1. Tap Printer Setup on the Main Menu.
  2. Tap Ink Type. The Select Ink Type screen opens, showing the recognized ink cartridge installed in each cartridge holder.
  3. To select a particular ink cartridge, tap on it.
  4. To change the name of the ink cartridge:
    1. Tap the Edit (paper/pencil) icon next to the cartridge. The Edit Ink Type screen opens.
      edit-ink-type-us_276x157
    2. Tap in the Title field and enter the desired name.

Boosting the voltage

If you have a complete set of ink cartridges of the same type that are performing poorly, you may be able to improve the performance of the group by boosting the voltage. If you need to affect the voltage of a single cartridge, see Checking Ink Status on the AddressRight 100Checking Ink Status on the AddressRight 200, or Checking Ink Status on the AddressRight 300.

Before taking this step, make sure that the cartridge has been properly cleaned. If print quality does not improve with cleaning, boost the voltage of all cartridges of the same type.

To increase the voltage for a type of cartridge:

  1. Tap the Edit (paper/pencil) icon next to the cartridge. The Edit Ink Type screen opens.
    edit-ink-type-us_276x157
  2. Tap the Boost entry box to open the numeric keyboard to increase the voltage on a particular ink cartridge. DO NOT increase the voltage more than the maximum listed on the touchscreen.

Once entered, the printer memory will recall this information even if the cartridge is removed and reinstalled in this printer later.

WARNING-ISO

Caution: Boosting the voltage above the maximum shown will damage the ink cartridge, cartridge holder and printer.
