HP Designjet 10000s Printer Series - Handling Precautions

These precautions are recommended to avoid damage to your printer and its components.

Power supply

  • Only use a 200-240 V AC power supply voltage.
  • Check the printer electrical outlet for proper polarity and grounding before connecting printer. Failure to do so may result in fire and electric shock hazards.
  • Be sure the printer is well-grounded. Failure to ground the printer may result in electrical shock, fire, and susceptibility to electromagnetic interference.
  • Avoid overloading the printer’s electrical outlet with multiple devices.
  • Use only the electrical cord supplied by HP with the printer.


  • Wipe the printer clean with a soft cloth. A cloth moistened with a neutral detergent may be used. Do not allow liquid to enter the printer. This may create risk of fire and electrical shock and cause a malfunction. Do not clean the printer with benzene or paint thinner. This may damage the paint.
  • Never touch the printhead nozzles. They can be easily damaged or clogged.

Regular inspection and maintenance

  • Clean the capping unit and wiper blade every day.
  • Check the moisture of the wiper sponge every day.
  • Store the ink system when leaving the printer for a long time (two weeks or more with the power off).
  • Clean and charge the ink system before printing when leaving the printer for a long time.


  • Ink inside the ink cartridge is combustible. Do not expose or store near open flames, sparks, or other sources of ignition.
  • HP ink cartridges must be installed before the “Install By” date printed on the cartridge. Use of the ink cartridge 3 months beyond the “Install By” date may cause deterioration in print quality or a printer malfunction.
  • Do not disassemble the ink cartridges. Ink cartridges are intended for single use only.
  • Avoid contact between ink and skin, eyes, and clothing.
    • Immediately wash skin with soapy water.
    • Remove clothing soaked with ink from contact with skin.
    • Use an approved eye wash station if ink is splashed into eyes and consult a doctor if necessary.
      If an approved eye wash station is unavailable, flush eyes with cold water and consult a doctor if necessary.
  • Use only an HP waste ink bottle. The bottle must be installed according to instructions or waste ink may overflow. An HP waste ink bottle must always be installed before turning the printer ON. Automatic and manual service cycles produce waste ink that must be contained in an HP waste ink bottle. Do not remove the cap from its tether to the HP waste ink bottle. The cap is needed to properly seal the HP waste ink bottle for disposal. Keep the HP waste ink bottle upright. Do not place on tables or shelves where it could fall. Waste ink is combustible. Keep an HP waste ink bottle containing waste ink away from open flames, sparks, or other sources of ignition. The level in the HP waste ink bottle must be checked by visual inspection to prevent overflow. If the waste ink level is above the indication line, the bottle must be replaced with an empty HP waste ink bottle.
  • Place a sheet of paper under the HP waste ink bottle on the floor when removing a bottle containing waste ink. This will help clean up any ink spills. If soaked with ink, treat the paper as a combustible material and dispose of properly.
  • Do not store HP ink cartridges in direct sunlight. Store HP ink cartridges in a cool, dry place. This prevents deterioration of the ink during storage.
