Replacing an Ink Cartridge
When one of the Ink Out lights is flashing (and INK LOW is displayed on the control panel), the corresponding cartridge is almost out of ink. Make sure you have a replacement cartridge. When the light stays on and INK OUT is displayed, the cartridge is empty. You must replace the cartridge before you can continue printing.
Note:You must use the EPSON ink cartridges designed for your printer.
Other ink cartridges will not work and may cause damage not covered by your warranty. If you don’t use the cartridges designed for your model, you will see an error message.
Use only the following EPSON ink cartridges:Before you start, make sure the printer is turned on. Then follow these steps to replace an ink cartridge:1. Note the color of the Ink Out light which is on or flashing.
This is the cartridge that you need to replace.

4. Carefully pull the cartridge straight out of the printer.
5. Make sure the replacement cartridge is the correct color, and remove it from its package.
If you’re using Archival ink, shake the cartridge gently before installing it.
6. Hold the ink cartridge with the arrow mark on the left side and pointing to the rear of the printer. Then insert the ink cartridge into the slot. Don’t force the cartridge.
7. Push the cartridge clamp back up. Make sure the corresponding Ink Out light goes off.

Running a Nozzle Check
Note:Perform the steps in this section only if you have disabled the automatic nozzle check in maintenance mode. If you haven’t, the printer automatically runs a nozzle check and cleans the print head each time it is powered on. Unless you see the message NOZZLE
CHECK ERROR in the printer’s display, the print head nozzles do not need to be cleaned.
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. (You can print the nozzle check on roll paper, but you will use more paper.)
2. Press the SelecType button on the control panel repeatedly until you see TEST PRINT MENU on the display.
3. Press the Item button. You see NOZZLE CHECK=PRINT on the display.
4. Press the Enter button. The nozzle check prints.
If all the lines on the pattern are complete, with no gaps in the pattern, the print head doesn’t need cleaning.
If dots are missing from the pattern, as shown below, you need to run a cleaning cycle. See the following section for instructions.EPSON Stylus Pro 10000
12 - EPSON Stylus Pro 10000 5/01
Running a Cleaning Cycle
Note:Perform the steps in this section only if you have disabled the automatic nozzle check in maintenance mode. If you haven’t, the printer automatically runs a nozzle check and cleaning cycle each time it is powered on.
If your printed image is unexpectedly light or dots are missing, you may need to run a cleaning cycle. This unclogs the print head nozzles so they can deliver ink properly.
The cleaning process uses ink, so run it only if print quality declines. Always run a nozzle check first to confirm that the print head needs cleaning; the nozzle check uses only a small amount of ink.
If you have installed the EPSON printer driver and utilities, you can run the Head Cleaning utility. See the EPSON Stylus
Pro 10000 Printer Guide for instructions.
Follow these steps to run the cleaning cycle from the control panel:1. Make sure none of the Ink Out lights is on or flashing. (If so, you need to replace the indicated ink cartridge before you can run a cleaning cycle.)
2. Press the Cleaning button and hold it for three seconds.
The Pause light flashes as the printer cleans its print head.
The cleaning cycle takes about one minute, and does not use any paper.
Caution:To avoid damaging the printer, don’t turn it off until the cleaning cycle is finished and the Pause light has stopped flashing.
3. When the Pause light goes off, run another nozzle check to confirm that the print head is clean.
You may need to run the cleaning cycle several times to get a clean nozzle check pattern. If the lines on the pattern still appear broken after several cleaning cycles, turn the printer off and leave it overnight, then clean the print head again the following morning. If you still see no improvement, contact
EPSON for assistance.
Aligning the Print Head
If banding appears on your printouts, or vertical lines are not straight, you need to align the print head. You can use the
Print Head Alignment utility if you have the EPSON printer driver installed (see the EPSON Stylus Pro 10000 Printer
Guide for instructions). If not, you can align the print head using the control panel. Both procedures align the head for all modes and resolutions.
Aligning the Print Head from the Control
Panel
You must use roll paper to print the alignment patterns. Two rows consisting of sets of 15 bars are printed across the width of the paper. It takes about 10 minutes to print both rows.
Follow these steps to align the print head using the control panel:1. Load roll paper that is at least 24 inches wide.
2. Press the SelecType button until HEAD ALIGNMENT
MENU is displayed.
3. Press the Item button. PAPER THICK=STD appears on the display.
If you’re using EPSON paper, leave this setting on STD.
If you’re using other media, enter the thickness value of the paper in 0.1 mm increments by pressing the + or - button.
4. Press the Enter button to save the setting.
ADJUST.PATT.=ALL appears on the display.
5. Press the Enter button to print both rows of alignment patterns.
If you want to print a single row of alignment patterns, press the + or - button until the row number appears. Then press the Enter button.
6. Examine the first row. You see a series of patterns similar to the pattern below across the width of the paper. Determine which bar in the first pattern has the smallest gaps. In the example below, #8 has the smallest gaps.
7. Look at the other patterns in the first row to see if the same number consistently has the smallest gaps. If not, choose the number that generally has the smallest gaps.
8. Check the control panel display. Use the + or - button to select the best aligned bar for row #1. Then press the Enter button to register the setting.
9. Repeat steps 6 through 8 for the second row of patterns.EPSON Stylus Pro 10000
5/01 EPSON Stylus Pro 10000 - 13
10. If you chose a bar that generally, but not consistently, had the smallest gaps, print the row again. Then repeat steps 6 through 8 for that row. Repeat this step until you can choose a bar that is consistently the best aligned in every pattern in the row.
11. The print head is aligned when your printout shows that bar
#8 (the current alignment setting) shows the smallest gaps for both rows. Press the Pause button to exit head alignment mode and return to normal printer operation.
Using Hex Dump Mode
You can use the printer’s hex dump mode to identify problems if you know how to interpret hex code, or you can fax the hex printout to a technical support representative.
Make sure the printer has paper loaded and is turned off.
Then follow these steps:1. Press and hold the Pause button while you press the Power button to turn on the printer. HEX DUMP=PRINT appears on the display.
2. Press the Enter button.
3. Send your problem file to the printer.
The data in the print buffer is printed with 16-byte hex data in the left column and corresponding ASCII characters in the right column. If the last data is less than 16 bytes, you need to press the Pause button to print it.
4. When you’re done, press the Power button to turn the printer off and exit maintenance mode.
Transporting or Storing the Printer
Follow these guidelines for transporting or storing the printer:? Contact EPSON if you need to store your printer for an extended period (two years for the Photographic Dye Ink model, or six months for the Archival Ink model). A service technician must drain all ink from the printer before it is stored.
? To ship the printer, you should repack the printer using the original box and packing materials, and you may need to drain the ink from the printer. Then follow the instructions in “Preparing the Printer for Shipment” on the right.
? If you are moving the printer a short distance (for example, in the same building), you can move the printer on its stand. Follow the instructions in “Moving the Printer on the Stand” on page 14.
Preparing the Printer for Shipment
Follow the instructions below to prepare the printer for shipment:1. First turn off the printer and make sure the print head is in the home (far right) position. If not, turn the printer back on, wait until the print head moves to the home position, then turn off the printer.
2. Remove the following parts:? Ink cartridges
? Power cord
? Interface cable
? Paper hammock
? All paper or other media
? Roll paper spindles
? Optional Automatic Take-Up Reel (if installed)
? Optional manual cutter (if installed)
After you remove the ink cartridges, store them in separate, resealable bags.
Caution:Be sure that the printer is off before you remove the ink cartridges. Otherwise the ink valves may not close properly.
If for any reason the printer will not be level during shipping, a service technician must drain all ink from the printer before it is shipped.
3. Make sure the ink cartridge clamps and cover are closed.
4. Make sure the casters on the leg assembly are locked, and the two stabilizer knobs are touching the floor.
5. Remove the two wing nuts underneath the printer. Keep them in a safe place.caster lockstabilizer knobEPSON Stylus Pro 10000

6. Have four people lift the printer off of the stand, using the hand grips located at the four corners of the printer. Lift the back of the printer first, tilt it slightly to the front, then slide it back to remove it.
Warning:The printer weighs approximately 291 lb (132 kg). Always have four people lift it, using the hand grip areas illustrated above.
7. Keep the printer level while you move it.
Setting Up the Printer After
Transporting It
Setting up the printer after transporting it is almost identical to setting it up for the first time. Whenever you set up the printer, see the Unpacking and Assembly Guide, and note the following points:? Don’t forget to remove any protective material (such as tape from the ink cartridge clamps).
? If the automatic nozzle check is enabled (default), the printer automatically runs a nozzle check and cleaning cycle when you turn it on. You may also need to realign the print head (see page 12) to ensure good print quality.
Moving the Printer on the Stand
When you want to move the printer a short distance, such as within the same building or facility, you can roll the printer on its casters. Follow these steps:Caution:Do not roll the printer on angled or uneven surfaces.
1. Make sure that the power cord, interface cable, roll paper spindles, and all paper are removed, and the roll paper cover and lower cover are closed.
2. Fully insert the upper and lower hammock guides, then roll up the paper hammock.
3. Release the front casters and retract the stabilizer knobs.
4. Carefully roll the printer to its new location. Relock the casters and extend the stabilizer knobs after moving.
The first time you start printing after moving the printer, you may need to realign the print head (see page 12) to ensure good print quality. If you see the message NOZZLE CHECK
ERROR on the display, turn the printer off and then on again.
The printer automatically runs a nozzle check and cleaning cycle whenever it is turned on.EPSON Stylus Pro 10000 5/01 EPSON Stylus Pro 10000 - 15 Replacing the Waste Ink System About every two years of normal usage (25% duty cycle) or after 12,000 B1-size prints, you must have your authorized EPSON servicer replace the waste ink system. This is necessary to prevent damage to the print head and maintain print quality. Parts and labor for this service are not covered under the terms of the limited warranty. You can monitor the status of the waste ink system using the control panel or by checking the Ink Pad number displayed on the nozzle check print.
