HP Designjet Z5400 PostScript ePrinter Series - Insert a printhead

Insert a printhead
  note:
You cannot insert a new printhead successfully if either of the connected ink cartridges is empty, or nearly empty. In this case, you should replace the ink cartridge before inserting the new printhead.
  1. Remove the orange protective caps by pulling them down.
    Figure : Removing the protective caps from the printhead
  2. The printhead is designed to prevent you from accidentally inserting it into the wrong slot. Check that the colored label on the printhead matches the colored label of the carriage slot into which the printhead is to be inserted.
  3. Insert the new printhead into its correct slot in the carriage.
      caution:
    Insert the printhead slowly and vertically, straight down. It may be damaged if you insert it too fast, or at an angle, or if you rotate it as you insert it.

  4. Push down as indicated by the arrow shown below.

      caution:
    When installing the new printhead there may be some resistance, so you need to press it down firmly but smoothly. You should hear a beep and see confirmation on the front-panel display that the printhead has been inserted. If you have difficulty, see Cannot insert a printheadCannot insert a printhead.
  5. Insert all other printheads that need to be installed, and close the carriage lid.

  6. Ensure the end of the blue handle catches the wire loop on the near side of the carriage.

  7. Lower the handle to rest on the carriage cover.

    When all the printheads have been inserted correctly and are accepted by the printer, the printer beeps.
      note:
    If the printer does not beep when you insert the printhead and the Replace message appears on the front-panel display, the printhead may need to be reinserted.
  8. Close the window.

  9. The front-panel display confirms that all printheads are correctly inserted. The printer starts checking and preparing the printheads. The default routine process, when all printheads are changed, takes 10 minutes. If the printer finds problems in preparing the printheads, it takes longer, up to 45 minutes. For a single printhead insertion, the times vary between 2 and 40 minutes. After all printheads are checked and prepared, the printhead realignment procedure runs automatically if paper is loaded, see Align the printheadsAlign the printheads.
  10. You are recommended to perform a color calibration after inserting a new printhead. See Color calibrationColor calibration.
