    Some of the ink in the machine has dried, and as a result the maintenance stopper motor cannot rotate or
    the levers come loose.
    NOTE: The following conditions make it easy for the ink to dry up (See Appendix 3 for more details):
    - Low humidity
    - Long intervals between machine usage
    - Total period of usage is long
    - Low Print Volume

    Changing ink cartridges

    Make sure the printer is ON.

    Open the top of the printer.

    The cartridges are inside the cartridge carrier. You need to squeeze the tabs on the carrier which will flip up the lids to reveal the ink cartridges.

    For reference, here are links to the setup sheet and the user guide. The setup sheet has pictures that should help.
