The Ink Type menu allows you to select the ink type, change the name of the ink cartridge, and increase voltage for a cartridge.
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:
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 100, Checking Ink Status on the AddressRight 200, 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:
Once entered, the printer memory will recall this information even if the cartridge is removed and reinstalled in this printer later.
Caution: Boosting the voltage above the maximum shown will damage the ink cartridge, cartridge holder and printer.
