The Ink light on FreeJet printers will turn on from time to time. This normally has no effect on printing and it will turn off automatically within 15 minutes or less.

It turns on when part of the printer’s electronics which monitor ink usage have noted that nearly a cartridge worth of ink has been used for one or more of the 8 ink channels. You can ignore the Ink light since FreeJet printers use a bulk ink system rather than ink cartridges (reducing your costs and maintenance time).

So there is nothing that you need to do when your Freejet printer’s ‘Ink’ light comes on.

Your printer includes an ink chip reset feature which automatically notifies the ink monitoring system that a new ink cartridge has been installed, causing the Ink light to turn off. Note that the ink light will flash just before the reset is completed, but nothing needs to be done by the operator as this is an automated function.

If the Ink light is on when the printer is shut down, an ink chip reset will run and the Ink light will be turned off next time the printer is turned back on.

If you like, you may perform a manual ink chip reset to clear the light using the following steps:

  1. Press Function + Stand by simultaneously.
  2. Pause for 4-5 seconds.
  3. Press Function + Stand by a second time.
If nothing seems to be happening when you press the button combination, try pressing the Function button a half-second before pressing the Stand by button, then release them both.
