When your ink starts getting low, you will see a red light flashing on the printer. There is a tear drop shape next to the indicator light on the top of the printer. You can keep printing until the light stays red. Once the light stays red, they will need to be changed. When you need more ink, Epson will have a window pop up on your computer wanting you to purchase ink from them. You do not need to do this. We bought our ink cartridges at Best Buy. This printer uses DuraBrite Ultra Ink. There are 2 types; 69 or 88. They recommend 69 for heavy use and 88 for moderate use. The 88 has about half the ink the 69 does. We buy the 69 because it lasts much longer. We use this printer about 3 times a week on average and we haven’t had to change the ink for about 6 months. The 69 black ink at Best Buy is less than $20.00 and the color ink is about $14 for each of the 3 colors. The color 88 comes with all 3 in a pack and it’s about $30.00.

You should not remove any old cartridges until you are ready to replace them because if there isn’t any in there it can dry out the nozzles. You open the scanner and press the stop button and the printer head moves to the correct position. Open the cover and squeeze the tabs that are there and remove the old ones. Then as mentioned in the set up, insert each one in the correct color and press until they click. This printer was actually the easiest that I have ever had when it came to changing the ink. Another thing that you should know is that you cannot refill the cartridges. They have to be new.

Dont know where to put the ink?thanks


i find that ink refills give a low quality print, and a4re liable to clog up the print head. You are much better advised to use re-manufactured cartridges. I use www.choicestationery.com for all of my epson ink requirements and don't have any problems with them at all. Hope this helps.

The Canon rep told you the correct information. The printer companies have included circuits on their cartridges that will not allow you to refill them. The printer reads the code and knows that the cartridge already ran out of ink. To date no one has figured out a hack for this issue.

Refilled ink cartridges


The reason why the printer says supply expired because the ink cartridge has its own warranty. When the warranty of the ink cartridge has expired then you will get that message. Eventhough you refill it. You need to replace the ink cartridge itself.

How to refil ink for HP Deskjet D2360


refilling the cartridges is NOT recommended for your HP.
If you refill them and something happens, HP will void your warranty.
Go back to where you got the printer and tell them.
The cartridges that came with it should of lasted you a lot longer.

Flashing ink refill light


Sometimes refilling them over and over doesn't work well. Once ok...but i suggest that you buy a new cartridge. I know that they are expensive but it will help. Also take some Rubbing alchohol and a q-tip...clean inside where the cartridge sits..that will help...this is for sure a bad ink cartridge

I am assuming from your brief problem description that you are getting bad colors when you changed your color cartridge. Are you using a new and certified HP ink cartridge? Are you doing a refill of your old ink cartridge or have bought one of those "re-manufactured" cartridges? The head in the cartridge is very sensitive - when they are damaged or poorly handled - it could result in cross contamination of the color inks. Hence - the brownish color you see could be the result of that cross-contam. My impression is that the remanufactured or older or continously refilled cartridges may be more prone to getting damaged - maybe bec of inherent wear out. Hope this helps.
