What is my product doing after I install a new ink cartridge?

    It takes about 10 minutes for the printer to charge 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. This initialization is a normal and necessary process. However, if the printer has not moved or made noise for longer than the times listed below, turn the printer off and on, then check if charging is still in progress.

    • If you’re installing the first set of ink cartridges: 15 minutes
    • If you're replacing an ink cartridge: 5 minutes
    If charging is still in progress, contact Epson.
