HP Designjet 9000s Printer Series - Ink System Information

Introduction
The printer's six ink cartridges provide yellow, magenta, black, cyan, light cyan and light magenta ink to the printheads. Ink cartridges require no maintenance or cleaning. As long as each ink cartridge is inserted correctly into its slot, the ink will flow to the printheads.
  note:
Failure to use the recommended ink cartridge may lead to a deterioration of the print quality or a printer malfunction.
The valid period of the ink is 3 months after the “Install By” date.
Do not shake ink cartridges before use.
All six color cartridges must be installed. If one of the cartridges is removed, a new one must be installed.
Ink cartridges must be installed in all six slots. The positions of ink cartridges are specified by color. (See the figure below.)

  warning:
Ink inside the ink cartridge is combustible. Do not expose or store near open flames, sparks, or other sources of ignition.
  warning:
Do not swallow ink. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting, but seek immediate medical attention.
Replacing an ink cartridge
You can check the ink level at any time by accessing the INK menu and pressing the (Up arrow) key. Information on each ink cartridge is displayed at three-second intervals.
The front panel warns you when a cartridge's ink level is low or when a cartridge is empty. Printing will continue without interruption if you replace the ink when you are prompted by the front panel.
You are recommended to replace the empty cartridge with a new HP ink cartridge.
Although it is possible to use refilled or non-HP ink cartridges, either choice has several serious disadvantages:
  • There is some risk of damaging the printer. In this case the printer warranty will not be valid for any printer repairs that are related to the cartridge, nor for any problems due to ink contamination.
  • You will invalidate the warranty of all printheads of the same color used in the printer subsequently, unless and until the whole ink system (including ink tubes) is replaced.
  • Print quality may be impaired.
  • The printer will be unable to estimate the ink level in the cartridge, and will report it as empty.
If you decide to use refilled cartridges, you will need to follow these instructions to make the printer use a cartridge that it believes to be empty.
  1. Install the cartridge in the printer.
  2. The printer will see that the cartridge is empty and ask to replace it.
    The following front panel message is displayed.
    Figure : Left ink cover message
    L INKCOVER XX: Ink name (K: Black, Lm: Light magenta, Lc: Light cyan)
    Figure : Right ink cover message
    R INKCOVER XX: Ink name (C: Cyan M: Magenta Y: Yellow)
  3. Press the (Down arrow) key and the CANCEL keys at the same time, and hold them down for at least two seconds.
  4. The front panel will display a series of warning messages. In response to each message, press the CANCEL key to cancel the process, or the OK key to confirm that you wish to continue.
      caution:
    Only press the OK key in the next step if you have read and fully understood how using non-HP ink will affect your warranty.
    Press the CANCEL key to cancel the process, or the OK key to confirm.
    Press the CANCEL key to cancel the process, or the OK key to confirm.
    Press the CANCEL key to cancel the process, or the OK key to confirm.
  5. Select CONFIRM NON-HP using the UP or Down arrow keys, and press the SHIFT and OK keys simultaneously to accept and end the process. Then the cartridge will be accepted, but information about the ink level will not be available.
If you insert a new non-HP cartridge, the same process above will be entered automatically. You do not need to press the Down arrow and CANCEL keys.
Ink cartridge storage and disposal
  caution:
Securely put a used ink cartridge into a plastic bag and dispose of it as industrial waste. Observe any regulations for disposal of ink cartridges.
  note:
HP ink cartridges must be installed before the “Install By” 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.
Store ink cartridges in a dry, cool, and dark place.
Always use the recommended consumables (media, ink, etc.). Failure to follow this instruction may cause poor print quality or a breakdown.
HP 790 Waste Ink bottle
The HP 790 Waste Ink Bottle is used for collecting waste ink that is discharged from the printer during cleaning processes. Only use our recommended HP 790 Waste Ink Bottle.
  warning:
Waste ink is combustible. Keep an HP waste ink bottle containing waste ink away from open flames, sparks, or other sources of ignition.
  warning:
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.
Do not swallow ink. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting, but seek immediate medical attention.
  warning:
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.
Precautions for handling the waste ink bottle
  warning:
Always securely replace the cap on a full or partially-full the HP waste ink bottle after removing it from the printer to prevent ink spills.
The HP waste ink bottle contains organic solvents and must be disposed of in compliance with all local, state, and federal regulations.
  warning:
Always use both hands to remove and carry an HP waste ink bottle.
Keep the HP waste ink bottle upright. Do not place on tables or shelves where it could fall.
Ink waste disposal
It is the printer owner’s responsibility to ensure that waste is disposed of in accordance with all local, state and federal regulations.
There are registered waste management companies that have been authorized by local authorities to manage waste collection and disposal and that will manage waste management and disposal on your behalf.
We recommend that you contact your local authorities for a list of authorized companies, or you can search for the nearest authorized waste disposal company on the World Wide Web.
Make sure that any waste disposal company you engage for this task is able to provide you with the necessary documentation proving their authority to manage and dispose of waste legally.
You will be legally responsible for failing to dispose of waste according to local, state and federal legislation.
When you have established an authorized waste management company, they will need to know the type of chemical that requires disposal and you will need to determine the type of agreement that best meets your requirements.
They will need to know the common name or chemical CAS number of the main solvent found in the supplies. This information can be obtained on the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) available for all supplies at http://www.hp.com/hpinfo/globalcitizenship/environment/productdata/index.html
There are normally two types of waste disposal services. The most suitable service will depend on your waste volume production:
  • Bottle by bottle and pick up on call : this may be the best option for low volume production to avoid the overheads related to arranging and ensuring secure temporary storage. You can order these bottles as needed from your local HP reseller.
    Figure : HP waste ink bottle
  • Storage in a suitable container for solvents and regular pick up: this may be the best option for high volume waste production. An authorized waste management company will be able to advise you on how this can be performed safely and in compliance with local guidelines and legislation.

General recommendations
  • The HP 790 Waste Ink Bottle is specifically designed to resist chemical interaction with waste ink. Do not use any other kind of container or bottle to collect the liquid. Consult your waste management company to ensure you are following correct and safe procedures.
  • Do not dispose of materials via the sanitary sewer or drains. Hazardous waste disposal is regulated by local, state and federal regulations.
  • Store the full bottle in an area that has been prepared for this purpose until it is emptied or removed by a waste management company for disposal. Consult your local authorities about requirements or for advice on storing hazardous waste.
  • The bottle is provided with an undetachable cap to safely and securely close the bottle to avoid spillage when it is handled or transported.
  • Use disposable latex or Nitrile(R) safety gloves to handle or transport the bottle once full.
  • If you are emptying the HP supplied bottle into a larger container, use the container for this chemical exclusively. Never mix this chemical with other chemicals in the same container. This represents a serious safety hazard.
