What is my product doing after I install a new ink cartridge?
It takes a few minutes for the printer to prime the ink delivery system when you install the first set of ink cartridges. When you replace an ink cartridge, the printer takes a few minutes to charge the ink delivery system.
Note: Never turn off the printer while it is charging the ink delivery system (unless the printer hasn't moved or made noise for more than 6 minutes). This initialization is a normal and necessary process. If the printer initialization does not stop after 6 minutes, turn the printer off, then turn it on and check if charging is still in progress. If it is still in progress, contact Epson.
