Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Printer wont print and control panel says to put cyan ink in but wont change to anything else except the printer info could not having ink in one color stop printer from working
Did you install the cartridge correctly? Sometimes (and it does happen frequently), is that when installing a cartridge, often you forget to remove the plastic strip that separates the toner from the inner drum, check for that.

You can't. Just simply stated. It is the way it's designed.
Per Xerox below
NOTE: The automatic printhead cleaning cycle cannot be disabled.
The printer performs automatic printhead cleaning cycles to remove air bubbles or foreign matter that can cause a printhead jet to malfunction. An automatic printhead cleaning cycle is performed when the printer is first powered ON, or if the ink has cooled to the point that a cleaning cycle is required.
Powering OFF the printer longer than 3 or 4 minutes will also cause the printer to perform a printhead cleaning cycle when the printer is powered back ON, which uses ink. To minimize ink consumption, keep the printer powered ON at all times.

Actually what is happening is your machine is going into the power save mode and staying there for a long time.
What happens then is you get a full warmup. When the machine warms up, it will turn on the compressor and drain the resivour because Xerox wants a "fresh": supply of ink in the print head.
Its excruciatingly expensive and wasteful.
Here is something that can help. I am not sure you can completely disable the energy save mode. Thanks Al Gore...
NOTE: To save energy, the printer enters a power saver, low-energy consumption mode after a predefined period of time since its last activity. In this mode, most printer electrical systems are shut down. When a print job is sent to the printer, the printer enters the Warm-up Mode. You can also warm up the printer by pressing the [OK] button on the Control Panel.
If the printer is going into Power Saver mode too often and you do not want to wait while the printer warms up, increase the length of time before the printer goes into the Power Saver mode.
Modify the timeout value:
NOTE: Select a larger timeout value to extend the length of time before the printer goes into the Power Saver mode.
