Question about Epson Aculaser C1100 Printer

2 Answers

Swopping cartridges When I first set up my Epson C1100, I stupidly put the yellow toner in the magenta slot and visa versa. The printer now prints green images in a brown colour. Can I remove the cartridges and place them back in the right positions? If so, how do I do this?

You need to use the menu on the printer to move the appropriate cartridge around, one at a time. Whatever the first colour you replace, you may need a spare cartridge, as this printer does not like empty slots!

With the printer in idle mode (you may see Ready or Sleep in the LED), go to the Reset menu by pressing the small button with the Enter symbol beside (crooked arrow).

Then press the down (bottom button of the four small ones) until you see "Change Toner ?" and press the Enter button again.

The printer will move the appropriate cartridge to the front and you can change it.

As the previous poster mentioned, you are going to need some LINT FREE cloth or printer cleaning tissues (don't use normal tissue to wipe the inside of the printer under any circumstances - you may end up with bits left inside).

Do a couple of test prints until the toner colours clear up.

You can swap them again, but be careful because it is a job that requires some kleenex, for the ink will spill easily from the cartridges. I am really not sure if the jets are part of the cartridge or not, but if they are not, you will get weird printings for a while.
Good luck.

    Ok. There must be a button with a teardrop symbol on it. You just have to open the lid and press that button for a few seconds. That should make the cartridge slots move around for a while and finally stop in the position where you can remove them.

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.
