Re: Changing ink cartrage

I think wat ya need to do is open the top cover, turn it on and usually the "Heads" come out to centre position to allow removal and replacement.

I installed new epson ink cartrage, but printer has red x and tells me to change ink again.? Can i just change only the bkack ink?

Yes you should be able to just change the black ink cartrage, A lot of printer wont allow other third party cartrages, is it a genuine epson ink cartridge? if so try cleaning the contacts on the cartrage.

After changing both cartrages the lower light keot

I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

CANON PIXIMA IP5300 cartrage problem

I can suggest you one thing. If you can't do it yourself, get a friend who can.
Make a small hole (using a drill) in a new cartridge. This hole should directly go to the ink cartridge. (Make sure you don't spill ink everywhere!) Make a similar hole in the old cartridge. Take a syringe and pull out some ink from the new cartridge. Put it into the old cartridge. If you can see the ink level, fill about half of the old cartridge this way. Close both holes. Now use the old cartridge in the printer!
(You can repeat this process whenever the old cartridge runs out of ink).
