IV. Change inks in print head
There is about 18ml ink in HP70 print head, each color 9ml. Therefore, while changing inks, you need run out the inks in print head. Following is the specific steps:

2. Print the monochrome color pattern, choose the following print mode:
Media type: Glossy photo paper; Atuo media cutter closed; Delete the up and down margins; choose color management software. You need print more than 10 patterns. After finishing printing, the MK does not take part in printing, therefore you need change the media type and print 10 pieces again, change the media type into coated paper or common paper. After finishing printing, examine the performance of test pattern. If problem exists, go on printing until the nozzles are in normal conditions.

There is I1 equipment in HP Z2100 that can do color calibration, as the compatible ink is different from OEM ink, therefore, color calibration is quite necessary. Moreover, the acquitted ICC profile and corresponding media type can be loaded into the printer together.
