I installed new ink cartridges and my product seems to be doing a long cleaning cycle. Is this normal?
Yes. It takes about 1.5 minutes for the Epson Stylus Photo RX680 Series to charge the ink delivery system when you install or replace the ink cartridges.
Note: Never turn off the Epson Stylus Photo RX680 Series while it is charging the ink delivery system (unless the printer hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes). This initialization is a normal and necessary process. If the initialization does not stop after 5 minutes, turn off the Epson Stylus Photo RX680 Series and contact Epson technical support for assistance.
