I changed my ink but it wont let me print it keeps saying i need to change my ink why?


What is the version of your ink cartridge? It could be that it's not seated properly in the cartridge carrier. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet in the wall to reset it. When the printer turns on, open the printer cover and reinsert one cartridge first. Close the cover. If no error, open the printer cover and reinsert the other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear. You could also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.

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.

  • 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.

    1. Buy only genuine Dell replacement cartridges. Dell states their printer cartridges cannot be refilled with ink and that only their cartridges work in the printer.
    2. Bring the cartridge carrier of the printer to the center so you can access the ink cartridges. Open the cover of the printer and the carrier slides to the center. Make sure the printer is turned on.
    3. Remove the old black ink cartridge to use the color cartridge. If you allow the old black cartridge to remain in the printer, you will get error messages that the ink is low. The printer may also keep reverting back to the black ink as the default color when printing.
    4. Open the package of the new color cartridge carefully. Remove any blue packing tape that's on the ink cartridge. Take care not to touch the gold area or you could damage the cartridge. Insert the new color cartridge into the correct slot in the printer, the right side of the cartridge carrier. The ink cartridges aren't interchangeable; they need to be placed in the correct slot.
    5. Close the cover on your printer after installing the color cartridge. Run a print test to make sure the color cartridge is installed correctly. Use the Dell Ink Management System to monitor your printer and all-in-one functions. Thanks Thiru

    Cannot tell which inkjet color cartridge needs changing


    Disregard the monitor information and rely on the printer.

    On the left panel of the printer are your indicator lights and buttons. Push the button immediately to the left of the 'ink drop' light [looks like a little tear drop]. Open the cover and the printhead assembly will move to the left and stop. Look very closely and find that little 'ink drop' imprinted into the plastic in the very middle of the printer where the printhead assembly stopped. That 'ink drop' will line up wih the ink cartridge that needs replacing. Push that button on the left again and the printhead assembly will either return to the 'replace' position, or move to the next ink cartridge that needs replacing. Keep pushing that button just once at a time until the printhead assembly identifies all cartridges that need replacing and moves into the 'replace' position. This 'replace' position will be on the right side of the printer where the opening occurs that allows the top cover of the printhead assembly to open.

    Change the appropriate cartridges and you should be good to go.

    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
