While changing new printhead with new set of cartridges, printer throwing error as Printhead Startup Failure. Not enough ink to complete startup. Then i restart the printer, it shows leakage in Cyan cartridge. Then i replaced a new Cyan cartridge then it shows all original cartridge installed and proceed for initialization of printhead. After sometime it shows ink leakage in YMK.

Just a the same issue and it turned out to be a doa printhead. Replaced head and all was good. Talk to your vendor and explain. If you get a leak out of box this should be covered by warranty.
