Epson 3800 purge/recharge at start-up?
Sep 16, 2009

Hi Folks,

I recently purchased a 3800 after using the 2200 for years. It seems that the printer goes through a cycle of sorts - noises coming from the ink compartment - when it is turned on, whether it's been off for days or hours.

Is this noise a sign of the printer 'purging' inks as a means of avoiding clogged nozzles/heads? If so, do you recommend leaving the printer on in order to avoid ink waste?

Thanks!
