Check the Ink Drip Foam located on the left and right sides of the printer regularly. Replace them as needed when they are soaked with ink or excessive ink residue builds up. If you use a lot of white ink, you will have a more rapid buildup of ink residue. If you do not have a new Ink Drip Foam to replace, you can re-use the Ink Drip Foam by washing it with warm water. Dry the foam thoroughly before reinstalling it. The Drip Pan Foam on the left side of the printer is located under the Maintenance Station. The foam tray must be removed for inspection or replacement. To remove the left drip pan tray, the table must be moved all the way out to the home position and the 2 screws must be removed so the tray can be pulled out.
