To ensure good results, use genuine EPSON ink cartridges and do not refill them. Other products may cause damage to your printer not covered by EPSON’s warranty.
When you need new ink cartridges, contact your dealer, or call the EPSON Store

Ink Cartridge Precautions
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children and do not drink the ink.
If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them thoroughly with water.
To avoid damaging the printer, never move the print head by hand.
You cannot print if either ink cartridge is empty. Leave the empty cartridge installed in the printer until you have obtained a replacement. Otherwise the ink remaining in the print head nozzles may dry out.
Removing and Installing an Ink Cartridge
Be sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin. Once you start the ink cartridge replacement procedure, you must complete all the steps in one session.
1. Make sure the printer is turned on and not printing (the green

P power light should be on, but not flashing). Then open the printer cover.
2. Press the
e ink cartridge replacement button. The print head moves to the center and the green

P power light flashes.
The red
b error light also begins to flash or remains on.
? If it flashes at the same speed as the green

P power light, replace the black cartridge.
? If it flashes twice as fast as the green

P power light, replace the color cartridge.
? If it remains on, replace both cartridges.
The color cartridge is on the right and the black is on the left.
3. Pull up the ink cartridge clamp. The cartridge rises up from its holder.
4. Lift the cartridge out of the printer and dispose of it carefully.
5. Unwrap the new ink cartridge. Then remove only the yellow tape seal on top.
You must remove the yellow tape from the top of the cartridge or you will permanently damage it.
Don’t touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge; you may inhibit normal operation and printing.
6. Tilt the new cartridge toward you slightly as you insert it.
Lower the cartridge so that the tabs rest on the hooks.
Don’t place the cartridge under the hooks; you may damage the clamp when you close it.
7. Press down firmly on the ink cartridge clamp until it snaps in place.black cartridge color cartridgedon’t touch the green circuit boardshooksEPSON Stylus Photo 820
8 - EPSON Stylus Photo 820 9/01
8. If you need to replace the other ink cartridge, repeat steps 3 through 7 before continuing with step 9.
9. Press the
e ink cartridge replacement button and close the printer cover. The printer begins charging the ink delivery system.
The green

P power light flashes and the printer makes noise. Charging takes about half a minute. When it’s finished, the green

P power light stops flashing and stays on, and the red
b error light goes out.
Never turn off the printer while the green

P power light is flashing, unless the printer hasn’t moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.
Cleaning the Print Head
If your printouts are unexpectedly light or faint, or dots or lines are missing from the image, you may need to clean the print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they can deliver ink properly. Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if quality declines.
This section explains how to clean the print head using the
Head Cleaning utility. This is the recommended method when the printer is connected directly to your computer (not over a network).
You can also clean the print head by holding down the
b maintenance button on the printer for three seconds (when the red
b error light is off). See the electronic Reference Guide on your printer software CD-ROM for detailed instructions.
When you don’t turn on your printer for a long time, the print quality can decline. It’s a good idea to turn on your printer at least once a month to maintain good print quality.
Running the Head Cleaning Utility
Follow these steps to run the Head Cleaning utility:1. Make sure the printer is turned on but not printing, and the red
b error light is off. (If the red
b error light is flashing or on, you may need to replace the ink cartridge; see page 6 for details.)
2. Do one of the following:? Windows: Right-click the printer icon on your taskbar (in the lower right corner of your screen). Select
Head Cleaning.
? Macintosh: Open the File menu and choose Page
Setup or Print. Click the Utility button, then click the Head Cleaning button.
3. Follow the instructions on the screen to clean the print head. Cleaning takes about 30 seconds, during which the printer makes some noise and the green

P power light flashes.
Never turn off the printer while the green

P power light is flashing, unless the printer hasn’t moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.
4. When the green

P power light stops flashing, run a nozzle check to confirm the print head nozzles are clean.
Make sure paper is loaded in the printer and click Print nozzle check pattern. Then click Print. The nozzle check pattern prints (see the next section for details).
5. If the nozzle check pattern has no gaps or lines, click Finish.
If the pattern has white lines, click Clean to clean the print head again.
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning three or four times, check the solutions in the Printer Basics book.
You can also turn the printer off and wait overnight
(allowing any dried ink to soften); then try cleaning the print head again.
Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern
Examine the nozzle check pattern you print. Each black and colored area should be complete, with no gaps or lines, as shown below:? If your printout looks okay, you’re done.
? If you see any white lines or gaps (as shown below), clean the print head again; see the previous section for instructions.
Aligning the Print Head
If your printouts contain misaligned vertical lines, you may need to align the print head. Your printer must be connected directly to your computer (not over a network) to use the
Print Head Alignment utility.
1. Make sure the printer is turned on, but not printing, and plain letter-size paper is loaded.
Load paper that’s at least 8.27 inches (210 mm) wide to prevent ink from spraying inside the printer and smudging your printouts.EPSON Stylus Photo 820
9/01 EPSON Stylus Photo 820 - 9
2. Do one of the following:? Windows: Right-click the printer icon on the taskbar (in the lower right corner of your screen). Select
Print Head Alignment.
? Macintosh: Open the File menu and choose Page
Setup or Print. Click the Utility button, then click the Print Head Alignment button.
3. Follow the instructions on the screen to print a test page.
You see the alignment window.
4. On the test page, select the pattern that shows the two vertical lines most precisely printed on top of each other.
You may need to use a magnifying glass.
Select one pattern each for rows 1, 2, and 3. Then enter the number of the best pattern for each row in the corresponding boxes on the screen.
5. Click Realignment to print another test page. Make sure the pattern numbered 8 in each row is the best aligned. If not, repeat steps 3 and 4.
6. When you’re finished, click Finish.
Testing the Printer
You can run a printer check to determine whether a problem comes from the printer itself or some other source.
1. Make sure both the printer and computer are turned off.
Then disconnect the USB or parallel cable from the printer.
2. Make sure letter-size or larger paper is loaded in the printer.
3. Hold down the
b maintenance button, then press and release the

Ppower button. Continue holding down the
b maintenance button until the

P power light starts to flash, then release it.
The printer prints one page showing its ROM version number and a nozzle check pattern. (If the pattern has gaps in its dots, you need to clean the print head; see page 8.)
4. Turn off the printer after it prints the check page. Then reconnect the cable and turn on your printer and computer.
? If the check page prints, the problem probably lies in your software settings, interface cable, or computer.
Your software may not be installed correctly.
? If the check page doesn’t print, you may have a problem with your printer. Try the suggestions in the electronic
Reference Guide on the printer software CD-ROM. If nothing works, contact your dealer or EPSON.
Cleaning the Printer
To keep your printer working at its best, you should clean it several times a year. Follow these steps: 1. Turn off the printer, unplug the power cord, and disconnect the printer cable.
2. Remove all paper, then use a soft brush to clean any dust or dirt from the sheet feeder.
3. Clean the exterior of the printer with a soft, damp cloth.
4. Clean ink out of the printer’s interior with a soft, damp cloth.
Don’t touch the gears inside the printer.
Be careful not to wipe the metal carriage shaft.
Never use a hard or abrasive brush, or alcohol or thinner for cleaning; they can damage the printer components and case.
Don’t get water on the printer components and don’t spray lubricants or oils inside the printer.
Don’t use any cleaning sheets included with special paper; they may jam inside the printer.
Transporting the Printer
If you move your printer some distance, you need to prepare it for transportation in its original box or one of a similar size.
To avoid damage, always leave the ink cartridges installed when transporting the printer.
1. Turn on the printer, wait until the print head locks in the far right position, then turn off the printer.
2. Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet. Then disconnect the printer cable from the printer.
3. Remove any paper from the printer and remove the paper support.
