    the printer is Epson Stylus C46, when I lift up the cover the ink cartridges are on the far right hand side and inside the casing of the printer, I can't see to get them to come across the printer in order to get them out.

How to change ink cartridge? When scanner lid is lifted ink cartridges do not slide over to be removed.


If the printer still thinks the cartridges have some ink in them (ink light blinking, but NOT SOLID RED), it won't move the carridges into place- this only happens when they are completely empty. if you want to change them MANIUALLY you will have to look for "changing ink" in your manual- usually, but not alwyas done by holding down the INK button for 3 seconds, but like I said- check the manual, and if you don';t have it, downlaod from EPson website

Changing Ink Cartridge


Hi,
Easy solution:
Press The index sheet button and the scan button at the same time.
In the printers window 'set up' will appear. using the left right arrows proceed to 'Ink cartridge replacement'.
Press 'start'. The ink cartridge holder will align itself in the middle of the space where it is easy to remove the cartridges.
I am disgusted with Epson making this so diificult to figure out. Once you know..then you know. but no amount of guesswork would have come up with the solution

Please rate!! Thanks, Prem

My epson dx4000 Cannot recognise ink cartridge. i have tried new epson cartridges and compatible ones but nothing seems to work. have also cleaned heads manually as printer won't do it thank you for any...



I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

"Print carrier stall"?


Error 0502-Carrier Stall indicates a physically blocked carrier. This condition can occur for many possible reasons. Most often, the carrier is blocked because the ink cartridge lids are open while the printer is on (Figure 1).

Figure 1: Open Ink Cartridge Lids

Reseat the Ink Cartridges and Make Sure the Lids Are in Place
  1. Make sure the printer is turned on.
  2. Lift the printer's front cover.

    new_note.jpg Note: The ink cartridge should be in the up/loading position unless the printer is busy.
  1. Squeeze the tabs on the cartridge lids and lift the cartridge lids up. The cartridge pops up when the lid is fully lifted.
  2. Remove the cartridges.
  3. Make sure that all of the protective tape has been removed from the contacts on the ink cartridge.
  4. Replace the cartridges.
  5. Snap the lids closed.
  6. Close the printer's front cover.
  7. When prompted on the printer's LCD to choose New or Old, choose Old.
  8. Press Select.

» Reposition the Encoder Strip
  1. Remove the power cord from the printer.
  2. Lift the scanner unit to expose the inside, where the printer cartridges are located.
  3. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.
  4. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right.
  5. Using an index finger, gently push encoder strip (Figure 1) down and then back up, to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.

  6. Gently press the strip first to the rear, and then forward, to ensure that it is seated correctly.
  7. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right, to check the positioning of the encoder strip.
  8. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the scanner lid.
  9. Re-connect the power cord to the printer.

Changing ink cartridges


Make sure the printer is ON.

Open the top of the printer.

The cartridges are inside the cartridge carrier. You need to squeeze the tabs on the carrier which will flip up the lids to reveal the ink cartridges.

For reference, here are links to the setup sheet and the user guide. The setup sheet has pictures that should help.
