Unable to change ink cartridge

I'm trying to change both ink cartridges in an Epson Stylus 660, but when I press button for 3 sec. it takes the ink cartridges back and forth but it doesn't stop at the right spot to allow opening the top of the cartridges.
I even try to do it manually with the printer disconnected but it doesn't go anywhere.

Turn it on, when it goes from side to side, then quickly turn it off to the spot where it will allow you to open it. Then open the print cartridges and change them. Turn it back on.
Hope that helps.

The black ink will npt come through


Hi,

If you have just installed a new ink cartridge and an ink low or Replace ink cartridge message is still displayed, the cartridge may be incorrectly installed.

Follow these steps to make sure the cartridges are correctly installed:

  1. Press the On button to turn on the Epson Stylus, or (if already on) press the Setup button.


  2. Select Maintenance and press OK.


  3. Select Change Ink Cartridge and press OK.


  4. Open the scanner.


  5. Open the cartridge cover.


  6. Press down all the ink cartridges until they click into place to make sure they are properly seated.


  7. Close the ink cartridge cover and push it down until it clicks into place.


  8. Close the scanner.


  9. Press OK to begin charging the ink. This takes about 2 minutes.

    You see a message on the display screen when ink charging is finished.

    Caution:

    Never turn off the Epson Stylus while ink is charging or you'll waste ink.

    If you remove an ink cartridge for later use, protect the ink supply area from dirt and dust and store it in the same environment as the Epson Stylus with the label facing upward. Note that there is a valve in the ink supply port, making covers or plugs unnecessary, but care is needed to prevent the ink from staining items that the cartridge touches. Do not touch the ink cartridge ink supply port or surrounding area, and do not store the cartridge upside down.

    If you remove a low or expended ink cartridge, you cannot reinstall and use the cartridge.

How to change all the ink cartridges at the same time because I was unable to remove some ink cartridges. The whole cartridges cannot be fully exposed.


Here are instructions on how to change the printer cartridges in an Epson Stylus. First open the printer cover. Look for the button with the picture of the ink drop on it. Press the button but do not hold it down for more then ten seconds. At fifteen seconds the align print cartridge function comes on and this will interfere with changing your cartridges. When you push the button with the picture of the ink drop on it, it will make the machine line up the cartridges in an area that you can reach easily. Then just remove the one you wish to replace. Use these instructions each time you change the cartridges.

How to Change ink cartridge on Epson Stylus SX215


#1 Wait until you are out of ink. The warning light and ink-low notifications come on well before the ink cartridge is empty, and even if it runs out of ink in the middle of a print, you can replace it then and finish the print with no problem.
#2 Lift the lid of your Epson inkjet printer to expose the ink cartridge replacement button. Make sure you have plenty of light so you can see what you are doing.
#3 Press the ink cartridge replacement button. This will loosen the empty ink cartridges so they can be pulled up and out.
#4 Fill the empty cartridge at an ink-refilling location, or buy a new ink cartridge to replace the empty one.
#5 Insert the new or refilled ink cartridge into the holder with the same orientation as the previous one.
#6 Press the cartridge replacement button to charge the system and close the printer cover. Charging takes about one minute

Thanks

How do i change the colour cartridge for a epson style c42+ printer - if i press the red LED button for 6 secs only the black cartridge comes into the open.! how do i get the colour cartridge into view ?


after the black cartridge moves to the ink changing position, push the 'ink' button one more time to move the carriage to the position to replace the colour cartridge. in some cases this will only work when the printer indicates that the color cartridge is empty.

Computer says black ink is low. Ink light is flashing on Epson Stylus NX100. When I hit stop button to begin replacement it wont move cartridge


***hi there,il be willing to help you on that. ****
1. Turn on the Epson Stylus NX100 Series.
If a cartridge is expended, the ink light on the control panel stays on. You must replace the cartridge to be able to print.
2. Open the scanner and prop it up with its support.
3. Press the Stop button. The print head moves to the position to indicate which cartridge is low or expended.
4. Press the Stop button again.
If another cartridge is low or expended, it moves to the position. Press the Stop button again to see if more cartridges are expended.
If no other cartridges are low or expended, the print head moves to the replacement position on the right.
5. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift the cartridge straight up to remove it. Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.
6. Before opening the new cartridge package, shake it four or five times. (Do not shake a cartridge after opening the package; ink may leak.)
7. Remove the cartridge from the package, but be careful not to touch the green chip on the cartridge.
8. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the cartridge.
9. Insert the new cartridge into the holder and push it down until it clicks into place
10. Once you replace all the necessary cartridges, lift the scanner slightly, release its support, and lower the scanner
11. Press the Stop button to begin charging the ink. This takes about 1 1/2 minutes.
When the On light stops flashing and remains on, ink charging is finished.
Caution:
Never turn off the Epson Stylus NX100 Series while ink is charging or you’ll waste ink.
If the ink light flashes, press the Stop button and press down all the cartridges securely.

buy an ink cartridge made specifically for your printer. Turn on your printer and raise the lid or press the cartridge changing button. 3 Wait for the cartridge carrier to slide out. with an Epson printer, lift the cartridge holder lid, and the cartridge will pop up for removal. Carefully remove the tape from the ink opening on the bottom of new cartridge. Insert the new cartridge into the cartridge carrier. Make sure the new cartridge is oriented the same way that the old cartridge had been. 7 Feel and hear the cartridge click into position. On some models, arrows will indicate the cartridge is correctly positioned. with an Epson printer close the cartridge holder lid and press the cleaning button to charge the cartridge.
