How do I replace the maintenance box?

    Note: In some print cycles a small amount of surplus ink may be collected in the maintenance box. To prevent ink leakage from the maintenance box, the product is designed to stop printing when the absorbing capacity of the maintenance box has reached its limit. Whether and how often this is required will vary according to the number of pages you print, the type of material you print on and the number of cleaning cycles that the printer performs.
