Re: Transporting a printer

I can't answer you directly Woody, but I guess that it should be restored to the state that it was delivered in when you got it.

I assume you had to fit the carrier and cartridges after unpacking it.

If it is a short journey in a car I might just leave it as it is.

Re: Transporting a printer

I wouldn't remove the cartridges as they have a seal that is broken when installed, and they could leak or not re-seal if removed. Provided nothing can slop around inside the printer, it shouldn't come to any harm. My wife shuffles printers around Huddersfield University quite regularly, and they are transported as they are.

Re: Transporting a printer

THANKS EVERYONE. WE ARE HOPING TO MOVE IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS. THE PRINTER WILL NOT BE GOING ANY FURTHER THAN ABOUT TWENTY MILES AND I CERTAINLY WILL NOT TRUST IT TO GO WITH THE REMOVAL MEN, IT WILL BE GOING IN OUR OWN VEHICLE.

Re: Transporting a printer

Keep the cartridges in Woody, absolutely.

If you take them out, you will have to do several cycles of head cleaning when you put them back as they will dry much more quickly without the cartridges in. For such a short journey there really is no need at all.

Just drive whatever route isn't covered in sleeping policemen ... if you can find one!

Cheers,
Rob

ps When Dan so kindly donated his Epson 2100 to my special needs young people's group, he posted it well packaged and with the cartridges in situ. No probs with it at all

Re: Transporting a printer

I would just pack the area where the printheads are loosly with bubble wrap to stop the heads moving from their parked position.

Some printers don't like it when they are powered up with the heads mid travel.

Re: Transporting a printer

I have transported a few "Delicate" objects in my time in the transport business.
As long as you pack it carefully, it should be ok.
Alongside the suggestion of restraining the print heads, if the original packaging is still available, there may be a bar that was in place during the original packaging to keep them in place, or even a humble elastic band to tether the things to the side...
Removal of cartridges, a blob of blu-tack, or selotape, may prevent leakage.
Plenty of Bubble-wrap, or even scrunched up newspaper, in the box, to cushion the printer is also wise.
During the transit of my printer when I moved house, being the cartridges were near empty anyway, I decided to get a new set to install when I got to setting up the thing when I got there...
I also threw an old blanket over the box.

The original packaging should be pretty much delivery van proof anyway, bearing in mind no package in courier hands marked fragile may be drop-kicked more than three times anyway (Transport rules no.1) if you have the original box and packaging, it should be quite safe... even better if its in your own vehicle...
DONT FORGET the leads... put all associated leads in the box with the printer, label them even, trying to decipher what goes where in the spaghetti junction round the back of the computer can be frustrating.
