Note for users of all Epson desktop printers.
Caution: Never re-install a used black, colour or cleaning cartridge from
Lyson as this will introduce air into the printer system causing nozzles to
temporarily fail. If this is done accidentally leave the printer for 24 hours so
that the air can dissipate naturally. (This excludes Stylus Pro models)
NB. If your Epson printer has not been used before we recommend running with
Epson ink for a few days before changing to Lyson Inks.

printing perform one head clean and allow the printer to stand for a
further hour. Repeat if necessary.
