10 INITIAL SETUP Unpacking (Save Packing Material) AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer Note: Service Station (D) is now pre-installed in printer.

11 INITIAL SETUP AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer Choosing the Location The RENA Mach 5 should be placed on a sturdy, level, worktable or cabinet at least 9 inches from any walls. Protect the Mach 5 from excessive heat, dust, and moisture – avoid placing it in direct sunlight. Work-Table Surface Must be Level IMPORTANT! Level the Table, NOT the Printer! The surface that the printer is placed upon must be level, front to back and side to side. Use a carpenter’s level (bubble level) to verify that the surface is level. If the surface is not level the printer will not perform properly; which can lead to damage not covered under warranty. Why is this Important? The printer’s ink delivery systems, and waste ink drainage system, depend on the table surface being level to perform properly. If this rule is not followed you will experience print quality issues and ink waste draining issues that could cause damage to the printer and void the warranty. Level the Table surface, NOT the Printer. Do NOT use the Toolbox utilities “Tilt” readings to level the printer or table. Use an accurate level (i.e. bubble level that is at least 18” long), to check that the table surface is level (front to back and left to right). It is not acceptable to use your “cell phone app” to check level. Do NOT shim, raise or otherwise modify the printer, or feet of the printer, in any way. If the table surface can not be leveled then the printer should not be placed on it. If the table is not sturdy then the printer should not be placed on it. Do NOT move the printer while the power is on. Tools Needed Knife and scissors to open packaging #2 Philips head Screwdriver Carpenters Level (recommend using 18” or longer level) Protective gloves should be worn to avoid getting ink on hands when removing protective packaging materials from the ink coupling areas, the Ink Tank areas, and when installing/removing Printhead Cartridge and Ink Tanks. Instructors Note: This process assumes you are starting with a new printer (no printhead, ink tanks or service station installed).

13 WARNING! Remove Shipping Materials

14 AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer Installing/Removing the Envelope Printing Attachment Kit ( )

15 AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer Installing/Removing the Envelope Printing Attachment Kit ( ) Installing Spacers Tips on Use: If you are going to primarily run flat sheets of media, you may find that the image quality may be enhanced by removing the “PPS Spacers”. Doing so provides a smaller distance between the printhead surface and the media; which may improve dot accuracy. If you find that the media catches on the transition between the height of the platen and the table top; you may need to remove the “PPS Spacers” to avoid this issue. This issue will usually present as a “click” noise, as the piece hits this transition edge. This issue will also cause a heavy line of image distortion, about 1” from the leading edge of the media. Unlike the original version of the Envelope Printing Attachment, this version of the Attachment (metal guide) can be installed or removed without the need to release the printhead cartridge; making it easier to manually clean the attachment and the printhead. If the Service Station is ever replaced; please be sure that you DO NOT discard the two “PPS Spacers”. Please be sure to remove them from the old Service Station, so they can be installed in the new Service Station.

17 Installing the Service Station AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer

18 Installing the Service Station NOTE: Make sure the wick hanging below the Service Station is inside the plastic trough inside the Ink Tank Station to prevent ink seepage. Make sure Service Station operates smoothly. If it binds or makes irregular noise, reinstall the Service Station. Lubricate Side Tracks and Guide if necessary.

19 Install the Printer Software (Printer Driver and Toolbox) AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer NOTE: With driver version R9.1 the Toolbox connection is routed to the choice (USB or Network) that was selected during the most recent driver installation. IMPORTANT: Before installing the printer software (Toolbox and Driver); you should temporarily disable all Antivirus programs and Firewalls. In addition; you must be logged onto the system with full administrative privileges (admin rights).

20 Connecting via Ethernet Network AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer NOTE: With driver version R9.1 the Toolbox connection is routed to the choice (USB or Network) that was selected during the most recent driver installation. IMPORTANT: Before installing the printer software (Toolbox and Driver); you should temporarily disable all Antivirus programs and Firewalls. In addition; you must be logged onto the system with full administrative privileges (admin rights).

21 Install the Ink Tanks AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer

22 Install the Ink Tanks AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer WARNING! To avoid damaging the chip on the Ink Tanks. Power-down the printer before inserting or removing Ink Tanks.

23 Install the Printhead Cartridge AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer

24 Install the Printhead Cartridge AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer WARNING: Do Not force the latch open or severe damage will result. Use the “Printhead Latch Release” button or the “Release Printhead” feature in the Toolbox.

25 Install the Printhead Cartridge AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer

26 Before you begin this process, you will need to obtain some deionized or distilled water and some lint free cloths. These items will be used to wet the printhead nozzles. NOTE: Do NOT use tap water or paper towels to wet or clean the printhead nozzles. Doing so may cause damage to the printhead cartridge and possible contamination to the ink system. Why is it necessary to wet the printhead nozzles? During the priming process a vacuum is created at the non-operator side of the printhead cartridge. If the printhead nozzles are dry (open); air is pulled in through the printhead nozzles causing the priming process to fail (printer is unable to create a vacuum to pull ink into the cartridge). By wetting the printhead nozzles this creates a temporary “water seal”, which prevents air from getting sucked into the printhead during the priming process. Install the Printhead Cartridge

27 AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer WHAT TO EXPECT: After closing the Printhead Latch there will be a ~15 second pause (no noise or motion). Then you will hear the Service Station move to the capping position. Then you will hear the ink pump start to run. At this time, ink should start flowing through all the tubes, in and out of the printhead. If you see this occurring, then the priming process is working and you can skip to Step 12. IMPORTANT! Whenever a printhead cartridge is installed or re-installed, it must be conditioned to perform properly. Before printing a live print-job; please refer to the section titled “Printhead Cartridge Conditioning”.Printhead Cartridge Conditioning NOTE: If any Ink Tank is less than 30% full, the Printhead Cartridge priming process may fail (not enough ink to completely fill the system). In this case you will need to replace the tank(s) containing low ink and repeat the printhead priming process. After the Printhead is primed, you can re-install the original Ink Tank(s) to use up any remaining ink. Please refer to the section titled “Replacing the Ink Tanks”.Replacing the Ink Tanks CAUTION DO NOT REPEAT THIS PRIMING PROCEDURE MORE THAN TWICE IN A ROW. DAMAGE TO THE INK SYSTEM MAY RESULT. AFTER TWO ATTEMPTS, LET THE PRINTER SIT FOR AT LEAST HOURS BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT TO PRIME THE PRINTER AGAIN. CONTACT TECHNICAL SUPPORT FOR ASSISTANCE IF PROBLEMS PERSIST.

50 Operator Maintenance AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer Feed Rollers and Forwarding Rollers The Feed and Forwarding Rollers can become glazed with paper lint and ink from the media. They should be regularly cleaned with a mild abrasive household cleaner on a damp lint-free cloth. NOTE: Avoid using solvents on the Rubber Rollers. Encoder Wheel If your machine has this type of Encoder Wheel in the Print Engine Area (see picture at right), excess ink spray or splashes may accumulate on the disk. This may disable the Printer and issue a "DATA_PATH_UNDERRUN" error in the Toolbox. It is necessary to wipe off any excess ink spray or splashes to continue optimum performance. Clean with distilled water on a damp, lint-free cloth by grasping the wheel lightly with the cloth and turning the shaft. Take care not to damage the Encoder Wheel.

51 Print Engine Areas in the Print Engine can become glazed with a buildup of dust, paper lint and accumulated ink and have to be cleaned regularly. Open the Top Cover. Open the Clamshell Assembly by releasing the two latches. Use a vacuum to pick up any loose debris. NOTE: Be careful around ink tray and capping station in the Print Engine area as accumulated ink may splash onto other parts of the printer. Take care not to damage the PC Boards or electrical wiring. [A] Grit Rollers: Clean as needed by moistening a small hard-bristled brush or toothbrush with distilled water. DO NOT use anything other than distilled water to clean the Rollers. [B] Media Sensors: Paper lint and dust may build up on the Media Sensors. Use a can of compressed air or a damp (not wet) foam or lint-free cotton swab to gently swab the Sensors. Take care not to drip water into the circuit boards. Use a clean, dry swab to dab surfaces dry. Remember to wipe the clear panel over the Sensor Receiver in the upper Printhead Assembly (see inset). [C] Capping Station Seal and Squeegee. Clean as needed with distilled water on a damp, lint-free cloth. Be careful not to splash or drip ink on other parts of the Printer. [D] Printing Platen. Wipe with distilled water on a damp, lint-free cloth. Pat dry with a lint-free cloth. AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer Operator Maintenance CAUTION USE ONLY DEIONIZED/DISTILLED WATER TO CLEAN PRINT ENGINE COMPONENTS. AVOID CONTAMINATING THE PRINTHEAD WITH CLEANERS, LUBRICANTS OR OTHER CHEMICALS.

52 Troubleshooting AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer Print Quality Issues: Many things can contribute to print quality issues. Here is a list of things to check: To reduce print quality issues, the print engine should remain powered-on. Even in its standby state, the printer will run routine maintenance cycles to help keep the printhead nozzles hydrated and clean. Verify that the media you are printing on is an “inkjet suitable” media. See Paper Types below. Verify that the “graphic” you are printing is of a high quality. See Graphic Types below. Check to be sure the printer has an adequate supply of ink (30% or more) in all five Ink Tanks. Check to be sure all five color tubes, at both sides of the printhead cartridge, have ink filling them. If not, the cartridge will need to be removed, the printhead nozzle surface re-wetted using deionized or distilled water, and the cartridge reinstalled. Please refer to the appropriate sections in this manual for removing and installing the printhead cartridge. Try removing air bubbles from printhead and system using the “Printhead Cartridge Conditioning” routine or Toolbox utility feature “Circulate Ink”. Note: Do not run the Circulate Ink feature more than twice in a row.Printhead Cartridge Conditioning Replace the Printhead Cartridge. Generally when the ink supply is adequate and the print quality remains poor, even after cleaning; the printhead cartridge should be replaced. Please refer to “Replacing the Printhead Cartridge”.Replacing the Printhead Cartridge Compatible Paper Types: (look for inkjet suitable stocks) Inkjet Paper - all types (recommended for best color output). Copier Paper Card Stock Kromekote Coated Paper - Gloss finish Coated Paper - Satin finish Coated Paper - Matte finish

53 Troubleshooting AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer Incompatible Paper Types: Color Laser Gloss Digital Printer Gloss Any Post Print Coated Substrate (aqueous, gravure or UV) Compatible Graphic Types: In general; scalable, vectorized art will produce the best images and color. Note: Graphic types are not really printer dependent. They are dependent on the software program being used to print the graphic, and what types of graphics that program can handle. Incompatible Graphic Types: Low resolution and web images will not produce quality output and should not be used.

54 Troubleshooting AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer Examples of Print Quality Issues (including possible causes and solutions) The Memjet printhead cartridge contains over 70,000 inkjet nozzles. These nozzles are divided into ten rows; two rows of nozzles for each color channel. Due to the high number of nozzles; it is not uncommon for some nozzles to become contaminated or clogged. The following examples were produced using a Five Band Color Purge YKCKM. A similar purge pattern can be performed using the Services tab within the M Series Driver properties. Click on the “Print Demo Page” button.

55 Troubleshooting AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer Air in Printhead Nozzle Area: Air in the printhead nozzles will show as jagged, irregular shaped lines of missing color. Lines are normally wider than one nozzle. Possible Solutions: Run “User Level Maintenance 3” from the M Series Driver’s Services tab. Release the Printhead, using the “Release Printhead” button. Then close printhead latch to re-prime the system. Instead of powering the printer off, when not in use, leave the print engine powered-up; so it can perform automatic maintenance routines. Don’t lift the print engine to an angle greater than 60º.

56 Troubleshooting AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer Clogged Nozzles: Clogged/dehydrated nozzles will normally show as thin, crisp, vertical lines of missing color. Multiple adjacent clogged nozzles will show as wider, crisp, vertical lines of missing color. Clogged nozzles are normally due to Printhead nozzle dehydration or partial contamination. Possible Solutions: Run “User Level Maintenance 3” from the M Series Driver’s Services tab. Manually clean the printhead nozzles using distilled water and a lint free cloth. Replace the printhead cartridge. Instead of powering the printer off, when not in use, leave the print engine powered-up; so it can perform automatic maintenance routines.

57 Troubleshooting AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer Color Mixing Issues: Color mixing will show as muddy, mottled or distorted (grainy) colors. Color mixing occurs when the ink from one color channel crosses over into another color channel. Since the inkjet nozzle rows are located very close to one another (ten rows of ~7,000 nozzles, located within a 0.8 mm space), it is easy for partials or fibers to create bridges across color channels. These bridges allow ink to flow (wick) from one color channel to another; resulting in a “localized” color mixing event; as shown in the examples below. Color mixing can occur for a number of reasons (here are some common ones) Ink wicking due to fibers bridging (crossing) inkjet nozzles. Wiper roller saturation (too much ink on wiper roller). Ink flooding on the nozzle plate; due to printer not being level or excessive back-pressure in the ink system. Tip: Muddy, mottled, distorted (grainy) colors can also be caused by the media you are printing onto. Test the printer, using a compatible “inkjet suitable” media, to determine if this could be the cause. Possible Solutions: Make sure printer is on a sturdy, level table. Perform a “Printhead Cartridge Conditioning” routine.Printhead Cartridge Conditioning Instead of powering the printer off, when not in use, leave the print engine powered-up; so it can perform automatic maintenance routines. Don’t lift the print engine to an angle greater than 60º. Contact Service person to have them clean/replace the Service Station.

Remove the Service Station from the printer, using the “Eject Service Station” feature in the Toolbox utility. Refer to “Installing the Service Station”, located in the Operator’s Guide, for help with this process. Follow the sequence in reverse. Wrap the Service Station in paper towels and place into resealable bag. Power-down the system using the ON/OFF button and wait until all lights are off. Turn off the Main Power Switch. Then disconnect the power cable from the printer and wall outlet. IMPORTANT! Do NOT switch off the power at the power outlet or remove the power cable until all lights are off. Failure to do so may damage your printer. Disconnect the USB or Ethernet cable from your printer Remove the Printhead Cartridge and install protective covers on printhead. Store Printhead Cartridge in a sealed plastic bag with a damp cloth. Be careful to avoid spills or stains during this process. CAUTION: Make sure contacts are dry before re-installing printhead. Continued on next page NOTE: If the printer is not working you will not be able to deprime the system. In this case, it is best to keep the head and tanks installed; unless you need to work in a specific area where the head or Tanks will be in your way.

77 AS/HJ-950C (Mach 5) Digital Color Printer Remove all five Ink Tanks. Be careful to avoid spills or stains during this process. Wrap each ink tank in a clean, lint- free, absorbent material and place them in a sealed plastic bag as a precaution against any spillages during transport. Place paper towels into each Ink Tank slot, making sure the towels make contact with the back of the slots. This is done to absorb any ink that may leak from septum needles. NOTE: Even though the system is deprimed, some ink will remain in the lower areas of the tubing. In transit, this residual ink may drain out. Keep the printer as level as possible during service. CAUTION! During the service process the printer should remain semi-level at all times. Failure to do so may cause the printer to leak ink. When you have finished servicing the printer; please refer to Section 2 of the Operator’s Guide for details on how to properly install the Service Station, Printhead Cartridge, Ink Tanks, etc. Remember the printhead cartridge “nozzle surface” needs to be wetted using distilled water and a lint free cloth or the priming process may fail. Installation and Service Videos (where to find) Installation and Service Videos are also available for this product. Neopost/Hasler Technicians: Please see the Knowledgebase or NeoU for Installation and Service Videos. Rena Systems Technicians: Please see the Rena Dealer Net area for Installation and Service Videos. NOTE: If the printer is not working you will not be able to deprime the system. In this case, it is best to keep the head and tanks installed; unless you need to work in a specific area where the head or Tanks will be in your way.
