Initial fill epson 9900

My epson 9900 has been idle with piezo flush. I am using serviceman mode to clear the flush, I get this => and told to press pause, when I do the the doors to the ink open, I close them and nothing happens. What am I missing? Thanks, Christoph

Hi Christoph~

Please turn the printer on in regular mode first, and open/close cartridge bay doors if you get a “no cartridge” error at startup, so your printer LCD panel reads “Ready”. Make sure all carts contain enough ink or flush, and chips read enough ink levels for the printer to preform the ink charge. Then, turn the printer off and enter serviceman mode to select the Initial Fill Cycle.

I hope this helps.
Warmly~ Dana
