LX3000 Shipping Instructions

LX3000 Shipping Instructions

The Primera LX3000 Color Label Printer uses separate ink tanks that carry ink through an ink tube system. To prevent spills/leaks during shipping, special precautions must be taken. These instructions explain how to seal the ink system with the rubber caps that come with the printer. If you do not have the rubber caps please request them from Primera Tech Support or purchase them here - SKU 665077.  If you do not follow these instructions, ink may leak inside your printer, damaging components which may void your warranty.  You must seal the ink system with rubber caps!
