1. Remove cartridge from its packaging.

2. Remove the plastic wrapping.

4. Locate Tear-Off tag as in Picture to left


Stage 2:- Slip thumb under Tear-Off Tag as below, then pinch tag with forefinger. Gently pull Tear-Off Tag as below and gently place back down on working area.

Stage 3

1. IMPORTANT: Examine the vacuum channel
as to the right to ensure no residual parts of
the Tear-Off Tag are remaining which may cause
an air-flow blockage resulting in blank prints.

tag or adhesive left in the vacuum channel,
then a vacuum will not form and ink will fail
to flow, resulting in blank prints.

NOTE: Use a sharp instrument to remove any
such obstructions in this channel. If in
doubt, remove the top label in its entirety.
