(1) Unpack the new ink tank and completely pull off the orange tape. Then, remove the film.
(2) Remove the orange protective cap from the bottom of the ink tank and discard it.
Be sure to remove the clear film from the ink tank in the exact order shown in step 4-(1), as failure to follow this step may cause the ink to leak and stain your clothes and hands.

Do not re-attach the protective cap once you have removed it.
Do not touch the open ink port once the protective cap is removed, as this may prevent the ink from being ejected properly.
Ink on the removed protective cap may stain your clothes and hands.
