Do not use an ink cartridge beyond the date printed on the cartridge package. For best results, use cartridges within six months of installation. Before transporting the printer, remove the ink cartridges, close the ink valves, and install the carriage restraint (packing material). See page 3-16 for complete instructions.
Chapter 1: Handling Paper and Other Media
The EPSON Stylus Pro 9000 and 9500 print on a variety of media, including roll paper and cut sheets up to 44 inches wide. The straight-through paper path allows you to use heavy stock, including posterboard up to 59 mil (1.5 mm) thick. Unless otherwise noted, the instructions in this chapter apply to both the EPSON Stylus Pro 9000 and 9500 printers.
Selecting paper and other media Printing on EPSON paper and other media Using roll paper Using cut sheet paper Using the paper hammock Setting paper configurations
Selecting Paper and Other Media
You can print on most types of coated, glossy, plain paper, and other media. The printer comes with two spindles, so you can have two types of roll paper available for printing at all times (with manual switching). You can also purchase an optional 3-inch spindle, which allows you to use roll paper with a 3-inch core. High-tension spindles are also available (in both 2-inch and 3-inch diameters), recommended for media such as EPSON Synthetic Paper and Fine Art Paper. The following table shows the requirements for paper you can use in the printer: Paper requirements
Roll paper Size 13 to 44 in. wide (330 to 1118 mm) Cut sheets in. to 44 62.2 in. (up to mm)
Maximum 4.05 in. (103 mm) when using 2 rolls roll diameter 5.90 in. (150 mm) when using 1 roll Thickness 3.15 to 19.7 mil (0.8 to 0.5 mm) 3.15 to 59 mil (0.8 to 1.5 mm)
1-2 | Handling Paper and Other Media
Always test samples of paper stock in the printer before purchasing large quantities or printing large jobs. When you use non-EPSON papers or other media, you may need to profile their thickness and ink drying time. See page 1-25 for instructions.
Printing on EPSON Paper and Other Media
Follow these steps to set up the hammock in front of the printer: 1. Pull out the paper hammock hooks all the way, so they rest on the floor.
1-22 | Handling Paper and Other Media
2. Place the two rods in front of the hammock hooks.
3. Place the shorter rod on the ends of the hooks. The longer rod should rest on the floor under the hooks.
Handling Paper and Other Media | 1-23

Handling Paper and Other Media | 1-25
Setting Paper Configurations
When you use non-EPSON paper or other media, you may need to register the papers thickness and drying time. On the EPSON Stylus Pro 9500, you can also register the suction setting. The only way to tell if you need to register new media is by experimentation. When youre using a paper stock or other printing material for the first time, always test it on a small print job. If the ink smears or printing is blurred, you need to register the papers drying time, and thickness (or suction setting). Registration is not necessary when you use EPSON media. You can register up to four types of paper or other media. Then you can select the registered values whenever you print on that particular stock. Drying time determines how long the printer will pause between pages or before cutting.
Its a good idea to keep a list of your registered paper types and numbers.
Registering Paper Thickness, Drying Time, and Suction
To register a new paper stock, load it into the printer and follow these steps: 1. Press the SelecType button until PAPER CONFIG. MENU appears on the display. 2. Press the Item button. PAPER NUMBER=STD* appears on the display. 3. If youre registering your first roll or batch of paper, press the + button to select PAPER NUMBER=1. Then press the Enter button. For subsequent rolls, continue pressing the + button to select the number you want to register. 4. Press the Item button. THICK. PAT=PRINT appears on the display. Press Enter to print the paper thickness test pattern. You may see PAPER THICK. NO.=1 on the display. Following is a sample pattern:
1-26 | Handling Paper and Other Media
5. Examine the printed pattern to determine which set of lines is the straightest (shows the smallest gap), and note the corresponding number. In the sample pattern, the lines under number 4 are the straightest. 6. Press the + or - button to select the number noted in step 5. Then press Enter. 7. Press the Item button. DRYING TIME=0 MIN appears on the display. Press the + or - button to select the time in minutes, then press Enter. Start with one minute. If ink still smears, increase the drying time. This is how long the print head will pause between pages (or before cutting) to let the ink dry. For the EPSON Stylus Pro 9000, skip to step 9. For the EPSON Stylus Pro 9500, continue with step 8. 8. Press the Item button. SUCTION=NORM* appears on the display. If youre registering very thin paper, press the + or - button to select the LOW setting. Then press Enter. 9. Press the Pause or SelecType button to exit the Paper Configuration menu.
First you print a series of alignment or adjustment patterns. Then you determine which numbered row of patterns (EPSON Stylus Pro 9000) or numbered line or box (EPSON Stylus Pro 9500) has the best vertical alignment (smallest gaps). You enter the information on the control panel to change the print head alignment.
Printing the Alignment Patterns
For the EPSON Stylus Pro 9000, use 13 19-inch EPSON coated ink jet paper (short edge first). Youll need 4 sheets to complete the alignment procedure, which includes 12 patterns of 7 rows each and takes about 15 minutes. For the EPSON Stylus Pro 9500, you can use EPSON roll paper. Six patterns of 15 lines or boxes are printed, which takes about 10 minutes. The patterns are repeated across the width of the paper. Follow these steps to align the print head using the control panel: 1. Load paper in the printer. 2. Press the SelecType button until HEAD ALIGNMENT MENU is displayed. 3. Press the Item button. PAPER THICK=STD appears on the display. 3-3
3-4 | Maintaining and Transporting the Printer
If youre using EPSON paper, leave this setting on STD. If youre using other media, enter the thickness value of the paper in 0.1-mm increments by pressing the + or button. 4. Press the Enter button to save the setting. ADJUST. PATT.= ALL appears on the display. 5. Press the Enter button to print the full series of alignment patterns. If you want to print a single alignment pattern, press the + or button until the pattern number appears. Then press the Enter button.
For the EPSON Stylus Pro 9500, skip to the next section, Completing the Alignment Procedure. For the EPSON Stylus Pro 9000, patterns 1 through 3 are printed on the first sheet of paper. After this sheet is printed, PAPER OUT appears on the display and the red PAPER OUT light comes on.
6. Raise the paper set lever and remove the printed sheet. Even though the Operate light is flashing, it is safe to raise the paper set lever. 7. Load another sheet of paper. The next three patterns are printed. 8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 twice, until all 12 patterns have been printed. 9. Raise the paper set lever and remove the last printed sheet. Then lower the lever and continue the alignment procedure in the next section.
Maintaining and Transporting the Printer | 3-5
Completing the Alignment Procedure
After all the patterns have printed, continue with these steps. 1. Do one of the following:
For the EPSON Stylus Pro 9000, examine pattern #1 and determine which row number has the smallest gaps. In the first example below, the lines in row 4 have the smallest gaps. In the second example, row 6 has the smallest gaps.

For the EPSON Stylus Pro 9500, examine row #1 and determine which line or box number has the smallest gaps. In the example below, line 8 has the smallest gaps in row 1.
EPSON Stylus Pro 9500 Alignment Patterns
If row 4 (EPSON Stylus Pro 9000) or line 8 (EPSON Stylus Pro 9500) shows the smallest gaps for all the sets, the head is aligned. Press Pause to exit head alignment mode.
2. Check the control panel display. Use the + or button to select the best aligned row or line for pattern #1. Then press the Enter button to register the setting. 3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each pattern. If you cant make a consistent choice as you look across the width of the paper, choose the average or most frequent number, then print the pattern again. Press Enter to cycle through the patterns until you reach the one you want to repeat. 4. After you have registered all the patterns, press the Pause button to exit head alignment mode and return to normal printer operation.

Setting Up the Printer After Transporting It
Setting up the printer after transporting it is almost identical to setting it up for the first time. Whenever you set up the printer, see the Assembly and Setup Instructions, and note the following points:
Dont forget to open the side ink valve locks. The printer cant print while they are closed. Dont forget to remove any protective material (such as tape from the ink cartridge clamps). 3-18
Maintaining and Transporting the Printer | 3-19
The first time you start printing after moving the printer, the print head nozzles may be clogged. You may need to run a cleaning cycle (see page 3-2) and realign the print head (see page 3-3) to ensure good print quality. If you reinstall the cartridges you removed before transporting the printer, make sure the printer is turned off when you install them. Otherwise, the printer will not be able to determine the correct level of remaining ink and the Ink Out lights may not flash to warn you when a cartridge is almost empty.
Moving the Printer on the Stand
When you need to move the printer a short distance, such as within the same building or facility, you can roll the printer on its casters. Follow these steps: 1. Make sure that the power cord, interface cable, roll paper spindles and sheet media are removed, and the roll paper cover and lower cover are closed. 2. Release the front casters and retract the stabilizer knobs.
4-2 | Resolving Problems
