Question about Epson Stylus Color 460 InkJet Printer
I cannot remember if the Status Monitor (SM) of the 810 has a "change cartridge" facility, but it's easy to check. Right click the printer icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen and select printer settings. Then click the maintenance tab - is "change cartridge" one of the options? If so, use it. If it isn't you can download the SSC utility from
and use this to move the cartridge to the cartridge change position - don't forget to use it to do an ink charge cycle after you have replaced the cartridge.
There is also the "generic" approach. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head starts to move, pull the power lead out of the printer, or turn it off at the mains. The print head should now be free to move (gently!) by hand to the cartridge change position. The snag here is there is no inherent means of running an ink charge cycle - do a couple of head clean cycles instead.
