My fiance just figured it out- the door to the ink cartridge has a little piece of plastic that is supposed to set off the sensor saying the door is closed. The plastic piece wasn't pushing the sensor down enough- he's MacGyver and just put a little scotch tape around the plastic piece on the door until the scotch tape was kind of thick and now it works. I'm not too excited that I just bought it and already have to jimmy rig it but it works.

How do I install the printer cartrige? I do not have the booklet...


  1. Turn on your printer.

  2. Open the front cover.

The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy.

  1. Press the tabs on the cartridge lids, then lift the lids.

  1. Remove the old ink cartridges.

  1. Store the cartridges in an air-tight container or dispose of them properly.

  2. If you are installing new ink cartridges, remove the sticker and transparent tape from the back and bottom of each ink cartridge.


NOTE: You can use your printer with one cartridge (color or black) at a time. To extend the life of your color cartridge and improve printing speed, install both a color cartridge and a black cartridge at the same time.
  1. Insert the new ink cartridges. Make sure the color ink cartridge is secure in the left ink cartridge carrier and the black ink cartridge is secure in the right ink cartridge carrier.

  1. Snap each lid closed.

  1. Close the front cover. The front cover must be closed to start a print job.

  1. Open the Dell Printer Solution Center by clicking Start® Programs or All Programs® Dell Printers® Dell Photo Printer 720® Dell Printer Solution Center.

  2. Click the Maintenance tab.

  3. Click Install a new print cartridge.

  4. Click Next.

  5. Select the type of cartridge you installed.

NOTE: Specify whether the cartridge is a new cartridge or an old cartridge (one that has been used before). If an old cartridge is incorrectly identified as New Cartridge in the Dell Printer Solution Center, ink levels may be incorrect.
  1. Click Next.

How do I remove the black ink cartridge to put in a new one?


1 Remove and Install Cartridges Be sure you have your replacement cartridges handy before you begin. You must install new cartridges immediately after removing the old ones. Caution:
Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink. Cartridges are vacuum packed to maintain reliability. 1. Turn on the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series. If a cartridge is low or expended, you see a message on the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series LCD display screen. If a cartridge is expended, you must replace it to be able to print. If a cartridge is low, you can continue printing until the cartridge needs replacement. If you're replacing a cartridge before you see a message on the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series LCD display screen, press Setup, select Maintenance, and press OK. Then select Change Ink Cartridge and press OK. 2. Open the scanner. 3. Open the cartridge cover. 4. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift the cartridge straight up to remove it. Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it. Warning:
If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets into your eyes, flush them immediately with water. Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children. 5. Before opening the new cartridge package, shake it four or five times. (Do not shake a cartridge after opening the package; ink may leak.) 6. Remove the cartridge from the package, but be careful not to touch the green chip on the cartridge. 7. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the cartridge. Caution:
Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink will leak. 8. Insert the new cartridge into the holder and push it down until it clicks into place. 9. Once you replace all the necessary cartridges, close the cartridge cover and push it down until it clicks into place. 10. Close the scanner. 11. Press OK to begin charging the ink. This takes about 2 minutes. When you see a completion message on the LCD display screen, ink charging is finished. Caution:
Never turn off the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series while ink is charging or you'll waste ink.
If you see an ink replacement message on the LCD display screen, press OK and press down all the cartridges securely.

My epson stylus cx6000 printer keeps showing -(install the ink cartridges) and I have already put in new ones. The code is E-02.


f you have just installed a new cartridge and you still see an ink related error message, the cartridge may be incorrectly installed. Follow these steps to make sure the cartridges are correctly installed:

  1. Make sure the Stylus CX is turned on.


  2. Check the photo viewer screen to determine which cartridge is incorrectly installed. Then do one of the following:


    • If printer shows the ink cartridge is expended, press the cp_button_6.gif Start button.


    • If the printer shows the cartridge is low on ink, press the Setup/Utilities button. Press the cp_button_41_er.gif or cp_button_42_er.gif button to select Press Start to change cartridges. Then press the cp_button_6.gif Start button.


  3. Press the cp_button_6.gif Start button again.


  4. Lift up the scanner, then open the cartridge cover.


alert_caution.gif Caution:
Never attempt to open the cartridge cover when the print head is moving. Wait until the cartridges have moved to the replacement position.

  • Press down all the ink cartridges until they click into place to make sure they are properly seated.


  • alert_note.gif Note:
    If a cartridge is properly seated already, you may not hear a click.

  • Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place.


  • Close the scanner.


  • im_339_er.gif

  • Press the cp_button_6.gif Start button. The Stylus CX charges ink for about one minute and displays Charging Ink on the photo viewer screen until charging is finished.


  • alert_caution.gif Caution:
    Never turn off the Stylus CX while the Charging Ink message is displayed or you'll waste ink.

  • Press the Setup/Utilities button to return to the previous mode, if necessary.

    I don't know how to change the ink bought this printer from a guy at work no manual


    Lift the scanner cover from the right-hand side of the MFC until
    it locks securely into the open position.

    If one or more ink cartridges are empty, for example Black, the
    LCD shows Ink Empty Black and Cover is Open.

    Pull the ink cartridge hook toward you and remove the ink
    cartridge for the color shown on the LCD.

    Open the new ink cartridge bag for the color shown on the LCD,
    and then take out the ink cartridge.

    Remove the cartridge covers.

    Each color has its own correct position. Keep the ink cartridge
    in an upright position when you insert it into slot. Press down on
    the ink cartridge until the hook snaps over it.

    Lift the scanner cover to release the lock. Gently push the
    scanner cover support down and close the scanner cover.

    If you replaced an ink cartridge while Near Empty was
    displayed on the LCD, the LCD may ask you to verify that it was
    a brand new one. Example: Did You Change Blck? 1.Yes
    2.No. For each new cartridge you installed, press 1 on the dial
    pad to automatically reset the ink dot counter for that color. If the
    ink cartridge you installed is not a brand new one, please be
    sure to select 2.

    If you wait until Ink Empty message is displayed on the LCD,
    the MFC will automatically reset the ink dot counter.

    If the Install message is on the display after you have
    installed ink cartridges, check that the ink cartridges are
    installed properly.

    Hope that helps you!

    Print cartridges


    1. When one or more ink cartridges are empty, for example, Black, the LCD shows “Ink Empty Black” and “Open Cover.” Close the printer’s document support and the document tray.
    2. Lift the top cover to the open position until it locks securely into place.
    3. Pull the ink cartridge hook toward the front of the printer and remove the color ink cartridge displayed on the LCD. Place the cartridge in a plastic bag as it may still contain some residual ink and may leak.
    4. Open the new ink cartridge bag for the color shown on the LCD and remove the new ink cartridge. The cartridge cover may come off when you open the bag. This is not uncommon and will not damage the cartridge.
    5. Each color has its own correct position that is clearly labeled and color coded inside the printer. Keep the ink cartridge in an upright position when you insert it into slot. It will only fit in the correct direction. Press down on the ink cartridge until the hook snaps over it.
    6. If you replaced an ink cartridge while “Near Empty” was displayed on the LCD, the LCD may ask you to verify that the replacement cartridge was brand new one. Example: “Did You Change Black? 1.Yes 2.No.” For each new cartridge you installed, press 1 on the dial pad to automatically reset the ink dot counter for that color. If the ink cartridge you installed is not a brand-new one, select 2.

    MFC-215C printer not printing


    Hi, I had the same problem and found the answer from one website. Heres how you can fix it
    1) Open the cover
    2) Remove the empty cartridge
    3) Close the cover without putting in the new cartridge
    4) Open the cover and install the new cartridge
    5) Close the cover and restart the printer (press power save to shut down and press it again to turn it on

    It should go into cleaning and when you check the Ink Status monitor, it will detect that the ink is full.:) Hope this helps, it worked for me
