Question about Epson Stylus C46 InkJet Printer
My black ink needs changing but when i press the red flashy button to get the catridges to move across, they come but then go back to their starting point again so unable to change cartridge. Its about 2 years old. Any help please, thanks a lot.
Hold both red and green buttons down together and cartridge will stop to allow black to be changed

For full info on Epson printers see our site.
Please go to my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.
The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.
For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.
I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.
If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.
Happy trouble free printing

You should go to the setting.
Go setting for the printer on the computer (it is at the menu of Start button) and go to the properties of the printer, click on printing reference and maintenance and replace cartridge. It will show you what to do with the printer.
