I have lost the maintenance manual and need to change the cartridges - how do I do it ? I have the 4 replacement colour cartridges but don't want to damage machine when I change.
Also why is the line in middle and reducing size of my laser copied photos when I copy them ? Is that due to cartridges not being changed ? I had no problems before but now I see this carriage is stuck in the middle and recuces size of anything I copy.

That means the colour cartridge has failed, as only one of the three colours are working. Try running a head cleaning routine, that may clear it, but don't do too many as it will use up all of your ink.
You may need to replace the colour cartridge. The following YouTube video shows you how to change the cartridge.
Yes for sure If your colour ink is down there is the possibility that the print may vary in colour.As the colour ink level decreases you might have got the error to change the ink. Hence it will tend to change the printing commands. To further confirm on this you can disconnect printer, uninstall and reinstall the printer software,then connect the printer for hardware detection and installation. now do a head cleaning maintenance and a test printing. If there is still no change it will be better to replace the colour cartridge after using the menu for ink cartridge changing so as to get the ink indication correct after installation. Hope you try this out. Good day
On your printer and then click on the start menu goto Printer and Faxes. After that goto your default printer Epson Stylus and right click the printer then click properties. Dialogue box was appear click on the maintenance and then click replace cartridge their was dialogue box will also appear. Just click the next button and read the instruction when you press the Next button. After that open the cover of your printer when the cartridge are at the center thats the time you can change the cartridge. Then close the cover when your finished to change the cartridge. Then click the next button and so on to finished.
This printer takes the "02" cartridges.
If the cartridge is not being detected is because the "chip" in the cartridge is defective.
Also because this printer takes 6 cartridge, make sure when you are changing the cartridge you are meant to change. For example lets say that blue and light blue are both low. Then light blue actually runs out and needs replacing. Make sure you do replace teh light blue instead of teh blue.
A way to validate this would be in the default screen of your printer the display show the amount of ink remaining on each colour. If you are replacing the one with no "bars" and with the warning symbol and after insertion the printer doesn't recognize the supply (ie shows the message of "HP original supply installed" and go through a "maintenance routine", the your supply is defective :(
I found that the proper way to do it only worked when the ink light was flashing red. Then when I pressed the stop button it moved across and stopped beneath the marker to show which cartridge needed changing. The I pressed the stop button again and it moved to a place where I could change it.
This happened despite the fact that the pictures I was printing blatently showed that I needed to replace my ink, it wasn't until I had printed the liney pictures a few times that the printer decided the ink level was low enough to turn the flashing light on and let me change it.
