The ink cartridges packed with your printer are provided only for initial ink charging.

❏ Because initial ink charging consumes a large quantity of ink, you may need to replace the ink cartridges soon.

Initial ink charging requires approximately

8 minutes.

Each slot can hold a particular color of ink. Be sure to install the ink cartridges in the correct slots according to the ink mode you choose.

❏ The following illustration uses EPSON Stylus Pro

4800. Slot # 5 to 8 are not available on EPSON
