Question about Epson Stylus 880 InkJet Color Printer
Although the printer window on my PC indicates that there still is a little black ink left in the cartridge, noting black prints (however, color does). However, the printer will not let me insert a new black ink cartridge. Every time I hold down the replace ink button, the black and color cartridges move to the left of the printer, but do not stay there long enough for me to replace the cartridge. Any solutions? Thanks.
Had the same problem but this worked for me. To force a cartridge change, press and hold down the PAPER FEED button for at least 5 seconds as suggested here:
I then changed the black cartridge, even though I hadn't used much ink from the old cartridge and the computer was showing it as three quarters full.

Tips for a great answer:
Please follow the following steps.
1) Turn off the printer.
2) Shutdown the PC to which the printer is connected.
3) Remove the USB/Serial cable through which the printer is
connected to the PC and reconnect it back and replace the old cartridges with new ones.
4) Now switch ON the PC(only PC and not the printer)
5) Let the PC boot up and login to windows.
6) Now switch on the printer, PC should detect the printer
Now you will be able to print.
