I see ink in my printer. Is this normal?
All inkjet printers contain a reservoir that collects the ink that is removed from the cartridge when the inkjet is primed. This reservoir can be either a plastic tray or a piece of foam that absorbs the excess ink. Some of the ink can dry (which makes the foam not absorb as well), and the ink that isn’t absorbed sits in the bottom of the printer. Excessive buildup can cause the printhead on the cartridge to become blocked or clogged. If you notice this in your printer, you may need to have it serviced.
