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 or replace an ink cartridge.
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 5 minutes). This initialization is a normal and necessary process. If the printer initialization does not stop after 5 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.
