Next, connect one end of the power cord to the back of the printer and plug the other end into a power outlet. Press the power button to turn on the printer.

Ink Installation

Now that your DCP T420W printer is powered on, it’s time to install the ink. Open the ink tank cover located on the front of the printer.

Take each color-coded ink bottle (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) and carefully remove their caps. Insert each bottle into its corresponding color-coded ink tank until it clicks into place.
