HI-

Turrn off the printer then unplug it for a few minutes. replug it then try pressing the maintenance button once or press and release it, if it doesnt move to position where you can change it press on it again. If this doesn't help. Go to start on your computer, go to setting then control panel, click on printers and faxes( then right click on the printer icon and left click on printing preferences then) look for utility or maintnance tab then there should be an option to replace ink cartridge.

Keep me posted

I am refilling the black ink of my canon printer using continuous ink container but the black color doesn't flow into the end of the hose and it didn't print at all, please help


  • Check the printer's power/alarm light. If it is flashing orange, count the number of flashes. Look up the flash code in your printer's user manual to diagnose the problem.
  • 2 Remove and reinstall the ink cartridges if the power/alarm light flashes 5, 7 or 15 times consecutively. This indicates that the issue is a cartridge error, an incorrectly installed cartridge, or an unrecognized cartridge. These errors can be fixed by reinstalling the ink cartridges. Make sure that you are using the correct ink cartridges for your Canon printer.

  • Turn on the printer and open the front cover. The ink cartridge holder should move to the replacement position.
  • 4 Verify that the colored ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the right and the black ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the left. Swap the cartridges and reinstall them in the correct slots if necessary.
  • 5 Check to see that both ink cartridges are level with one other and parallel to the top of the ink cartridge holder. If either cartridge is wedged at an angle, gently apply pressure to the cartridge until it clicks into the correct position.
  • 6 Close the front cover of your Canon printer and wait while the printer initializes the newly installed cartridges. This can take a minute or two.

    How do i get the cartridge out


    Press the fontb1.gif maintenance button. The print head moves to the black or color ink cartridge replacement position, the fontp.gif power light begins to flash, and the fontb1.gif error light begins to flash or remains on. When both cartridges are out of ink, the print head moves to the black ink cartridge replacement position first. After replacing the black cartridge, press the fontb1.gif maintenance button again to switch to the color cartridge replacement position.

    Changing color cartridge on my epson stylus color 980 printer.


    If you need to replace an ink cartridge in your printer, please follow the instructions below:

    To confirm which ink cartridge requires replacement, please use the printer's control panel (there is a black ink out indicator, as well as a color ink out indicator ), or the Status Monitor in your computer.

    Red light flashing - Low ink
    Red light solid - Out of ink

    1. Open the printer cover and press the INK (Cleaning) button for 3 seconds. The print head moves to the center and the lights flash.
    2. Lift up the ink cartridge clamp. The cartridge rises up from its holder.
    3. Remove the cartridge and dispose of it carefully. If ink gets on your hands, wash them with soap and water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water.
    4. Unpack the new ink cartridge and remove the yellow tape. You must remove the yellow tape from the top of the cartridge. Do not remove the clear seal underneath the cartridge. Do not touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge, or you may inhibit normal operation and printing.
    5. Tilt the new cartridge toward you slightly as you insert it. Lower the cartridge so that the tabs rest on the hooks. Do not place the cartridge tabs under the hooks.
    6. Press down firmly on the ink cartridge clamp until it snaps in place.
    7. If you need to replace the other ink cartridge, repeat steps 2 through 6 before continuing with step 8 (to move printhead over to color (if black was replaced first) press the cleaning button once).
    8. Press the INK (Cleaning) button once, and close the printer cover. The printer begins charging the ink delivery system.
    9. Wait until ink charging is finished (the power light stops flashing and the red error light goes out).

    I am trying to refill my ink cartridge and i dont know how. HELP!!!


    When your ink starts getting low, you will see a red light flashing on the printer. There is a tear drop shape next to the indicator light on the top of the printer. You can keep printing until the light stays red. Once the light stays red, they will need to be changed. When you need more ink, Epson will have a window pop up on your computer wanting you to purchase ink from them. You do not need to do this. We bought our ink cartridges at Best Buy. This printer uses DuraBrite Ultra Ink. There are 2 types; 69 or 88. They recommend 69 for heavy use and 88 for moderate use. The 88 has about half the ink the 69 does. We buy the 69 because it lasts much longer. We use this printer about 3 times a week on average and we haven’t had to change the ink for about 6 months. The 69 black ink at Best Buy is less than $20.00 and the color ink is about $14 for each of the 3 colors. The color 88 comes with all 3 in a pack and it’s about $30.00.

    You should not remove any old cartridges until you are ready to replace them because if there isn’t any in there it can dry out the nozzles. You open the scanner and press the stop button and the printer head moves to the correct position. Open the cover and squeeze the tabs that are there and remove the old ones. Then as mentioned in the set up, insert each one in the correct color and press until they click. This printer was actually the easiest that I have ever had when it came to changing the ink. Another thing that you should know is that you cannot refill the cartridges. They have to be new.

    Power light and red light keep flashing alternatively


    If both lights are flashing alternately, it means the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink ("protection") counter has exceeded its limit. The Waste Ink Pads should be replaced as soon as possible. You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utilit to reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation.

    However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer.

    If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, report back and I will provide further help.

    HP 932 RED LIGHT STAYS ON


    The light you describe is the ink light.
    When that light is blinking, try this.

    Turn on the printer. Open the front cover and look at the carrier for the ink cartridges. There is a white arrow right above the latch for the color cartridge.
    Once the carrier stops moving, the white arrow should be pointing to a symbol which represents the problem (the reason the light is blinking.) Examples are low ink black, low ink color, sick black ( replace ) , sick color ( replace ).

    IF you have just replaced your black cartridge, you might need to replace your color cartridge too.
    This printer will not work without both ink cartridges installed and full.
    You cant print with a full black and an empty color cartridge unfortunately, even if you only want to print black.

    Hope this helps!

    It will not print.


    Hi Greenhorn, Your info is slightly conflicting - I think. As I remember the C60 has just 2 LED's: 1 - Green for Power 2 - Red for Error The third button - Cartridge exchange - has no LED Now it is a while since I looked at a C60 and my brain leaks like a sieve, but that's the way I remember it and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. The error codes I remember are: Printer status - Indicators - Priority Power - Error Power ON condition On - Ink sequence Blink - Ink Cartridge change mode Blink - Data processing Blink - Paper Out *1 - On Paper jam condition *1 - On Ink end (Black) *1 - On -> Blink Ink level low (Black) - Blink-> Blink Ink end (Color) *1 - On -> Blink2 Ink level low (Color) - Blink-> Blink2 Ink end (Black and Color) - On -> On No Ink Cartridge (Black or Color) *1 - On Maintenance request (Ink Overflow Countererror) *1 Alt Blink Alt Blink Fatal error *1 Off On Special setting Blink2 Blink2
