There often comes a time when you need to cancel the initial fill process on your printer. Many people want to clean their printers with PiezoFlush or convert their printers to Piezography ink. With wide format printers, this often requires an “initial fill” procedure to flush the old ink out and the new ink in. If there is some problem with the printer or cartridges (or power going to the printer) during this process, the printer will often start back at the beginning of its purge cycle and waste a TON of ink. In certain exceptional circumstances, this can get the printer stuck in a cleaning cycle forever.
