If it doesn't come to the center when you open the ink door, the mechanism is probably broken.

Try unplugging the power cord, see if it will move, then reconnect the power cord.

If your printer is successfully connected to your computer and printing in color you may have a printer hardware problem. You said that the printer software does not show a black cartridge? Have you changed cartridges lately, did the problem possibly start after changing the black cartridge?

Have you completely powered off the computer, including pulling the power cord from the printer to allow the printer software to reset itself.

When you clean the jets, did any black ink show on the printed test page after the cleaning?

Is it possible that you have a bad black ink cartridge or that the tab is still covering the ink jets on the black cartridge.

If none of these issues help solve the problem, you printer may need to be looked at by a qualified service technician.

Please let me know what you have done so far and I will attempt to help your further with more information.

Don't know how to change the ink cartlige


Hi

thank you for your query

Make sure the printer is on but not printing. Raise the printer cover, then press down the Maintenance button for six seconds until the print heads move to the center. Pull up the empty ink cartridge clamp all the way. The cartridge rises up from its holder and should be disposed. Unwrap the ink cartridges and remove ONLY the yellow tape seal from the black and color ink cartridge. If you accidently remove anything but the yellow seal you cannot use the cartridge or it will damage the printer. To install the new cartridge, tilt the ink cartridge forward slightly as you lower it into its holder. Hang the tabs at the back of the cartridge on the hooks on the holder clamps. Don't place the cartridge tabs under the hooks on the holder clamp; you may damage the clamp when you close it. Install the ink cartridge and press the Maintenance button to begin charging the ink delivery system. Charging takes about a minute and is complete when the power light stops flashing and the error light goes out

How do you change the black cartridge in the printer epson stylus nx115


Here is the Link showing instructions below. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/nx110_/nx110_ug/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm

Replace Ink Cartridges
Your Epson Stylus NX110 Series and its software will let you know when an ink cartridge is low or expended.
If ink is low, the ink light flashes. You can continue printing until a cartridge needs replacement.
If a cartridge is expended, the ink light stays on. You must replace the cartridge to be able to print.

Warning:
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children and do not drink the ink.
Note:
If you need to change a cartridge before it or any other cartridges are low or expended, run the Ink Cartridge Replacement utility.

You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not expended. Replace any expended cartridges before printing or copying.

Leave your old cartridges in the Epson Stylus NX110 Series until you are ready to
replace them to prevent the print head nozzles from drying out.
When an installed ink cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it if your printouts do not look their best, even after cleaning and aligning the print head.
Follow the instructions in these sections to check and replace your ink cartridges:
Check Cartridge Status
Purchase Epson Cartridges
Replace Cartridges Using a Printer Software Utility
Remove and Install Cartridges

pls rate me. Thanks and Good Luck...

How do I change ink cartridge on my HP inkjet 6500 wireless printer.


Hi, When using refilled print cartridges, the Estimated Ink level and the Printer Status Window may indicate that the print cartridge is out of ink. Either continue to use the print cartridge until print quality degrades, or replace the print cartridge with a new HP print cartridge.

The methods of replacing the ink cartridge of the printer follows here:
Open the printer cover
The printer ink carriage will automatically goes to center
Once the carriage is in the center, the printer was ready to replace the ink.
Pull the down slowly the ink tank off the carriage..
Remember the place where the color/black position.
Remove each tank one at a time, and replace the ink with a new one.
Close the printer cover and it now ready to printer.

Changed black ink caertridge but still getting the low ink warning


If you are using a remanufactured cartridge, the low ink warning is actually normal. Since the printer cannot detect the amount of ink in the cartridge, the OEM companies place a chip inside of each cartridge that counts the number of pages that you print. When the cartridges reach a certain number of pages, they automatically tell your printer that you are running low on ink. Unfortunately, when the cartridges are remanufactured, the chip is unable to be reset. Here is a link to a site that sells remanufactured cartridges on how to bypass the low ink warning on Lexmark printers:

Want to change cartridge on hp PHOTOSMART C4480


Look at the front of the printer and you will see a slot in the center of the front. Reach into that slot and pull forward. That will open and allow access to the cartridges on the right. Grab the cartridge you want to change and pull down slightly and out. Remove the tab covering the connections on the new cartridge and reverse the procedure to install.

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.
