Epson Expression ET-3700 Setup Process

Remove the protective materials from your printer and lift up the scanner unit. Then, remove the protective materials available inside the printer.

Fill Ink Tanks

Before you proceed with this stage, note that it requires careful handling of ink. Otherwise, the ink might spill and cause damages to your product. If ink spills accidentally, then wipe it off immediately with a damp towel. Now, unpack one of the ink bottles and turn the cap gently to open the bottle. Position the top of the ink bottle along the slot of the filing port and insert it. Instead of squeezing the ink bottle, wait for the ink to fill the tank. The ink flows into the tank and removes the ink bottle when the tank is full. After that, securely close the cap of the ink tank and set aside the remaining ink for future use. Repeat the same steps for filling other ink cartridges as well. After completing the process, close the cover of the ink tank as well as the scanner unit.
