Refers to the process of initiating an initial ink load into the printer system, itself –this is often done during initial setup to move ink from the cartridges into the internal lines, dampers and print head. Failing to perform this step upon initial setup will prevent any ink from owing, during test prints– it will not have moved from the carts to the print head, so there will be a lot of air in the system. The Ink Charge feature can also be used on many systems to ush cleaning solution in the system, for the purposes of regular cleaning or ink ow maintenance. Some systems require you to use “new” cartridge chips to perform an Ink Charge – options include: using a physical chip reset tool to revert the chips to “new” status, using a brand new set of using carts or converting your machine to the “chipless” Firmware (where available).
