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 ink cartridge(s).
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. This initialization is a normal and necessary process; however, if the printer has not moved or made noise 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.
