Press OK, and as it moves left and right, grab it so it will stay still under the opening. May not be the best solution, but it worked for me.

How do i change the ink cartridge


    • Make sure the printer is plugged in and turned on.
    • Grasp the front top of the printer. This is the Scanning Unit Cover.
    • Lift the Scanning Unit Cover gently until you hear a click. The cover will remain open by itself.
    • Wait while the cartridge holder moves from the left to the center of the printer. The ink cartridges are located in the cartridge holder.
2. Then from there you just need to remove each individual ink cartridge and replace it with your newly purchased cartridges. Be sure to replace each one in it's appropriate location!

How to change an ink cartridge on the Brother MFC-240C


The Brother MFC-240C uses an individual cartridge for each color (black, yellow, cyan, and magenta). When one of the colors is out of ink, the printer will tell you to replace the ink cartridge. To replace a cartridge, follow the steps below.

All four cartridges are located on the right front side of the printer, behind a cover. Pull the cover forward from the side, where there is a slight cutout for you to grab. When the cover falls forward, you'll see the ink cartridge holders.

For whichever ink cartridge you are replacing, push down on the purple handle for that color. The ink cartridge holder will open and fall forward, revealing the ink cartridge itself. Push down on the cartridge holder and the cartridge should pop toward you a little bit. Grasp the cartridge and remove it.

Open the new cartridge and remove it from its wrapper. Discard the yellow cover, unless you plan to use it for the old cartridge.

Insert the new cartridge into the correct slot (from left to right: black, yellow, cyan, magenta) so that the word "brother" is right-side up and located toward the top of the cartridge. Once it is most of the way in, push the ink cartridge holder up by the purple handle until it snaps into place. Then close the ink cartridge cover.

If you were out of ink, the machine should recognize the new cartridge and perform its calibration. If it doesn't automatically recognize it, it will ask if you have changed one or more of the cartridges. Press "1" for Yes.

Once you have printed a test page with all four colors to verify that everything is working, either discard the old cartridge in the trash or save it to recycle. But don't get rid of it until you are sure the new cartridge is recognized and working.

How do i change ink cartridge


While cartridge installation varies somewhat between brands and models, these general instructions apply to most major brands:

Purchase an ink cartridge made specifically for your printer.
  • Step 2 Turn on your printer and raise the lid or press the cartridge changing button.
  • Step 3 Wait for the cartridge carrier to slide out.
  • Step 4 Put your finger behind the ridge on the top front of the old cartridge and pull it toward you to remove. If you have an Epson printer, lift the cartridge holder lid, and the cartridge will pop up for removal.
  • Step 5 Carefully remove the tape from the ink opening on the bottom of new cartridge.
  • Step 6 Insert the new cartridge into the cartridge carrier. Make sure the new cartridge is oriented the same way that the old cartridge had been.
  • Step 7 Feel and hear the cartridge click into position. On some models, arrows will indicate the cartridge is correctly positioned.
  • Step 8 If you have an Epson printer, close the cartridge holder lid and press the cleaning button to charge the cartridge.
  • Step 9 Close printer cover.

    I cant change ink cartridge in my workforce500. the cartridge wont center itself so that i can open it and replace the ink


    Epson has a Trouble Shooting Guide. Make sure that the 500 model number is showing on the top left. Select installing cartridges. Select Holder won't go to position. Then follow the rest of the instructions.

    Here is the USER'S GUIDE, with instruction for changing the cartridges.

    Hope this gets your printer working.

    Good Luck

    Changing Ink Cartridge


    Hi,
    Easy solution:
    Press The index sheet button and the scan button at the same time.
    In the printers window 'set up' will appear. using the left right arrows proceed to 'Ink cartridge replacement'.
    Press 'start'. The ink cartridge holder will align itself in the middle of the space where it is easy to remove the cartridges.
    I am disgusted with Epson making this so diificult to figure out. Once you know..then you know. but no amount of guesswork would have come up with the solution

    Please rate!! Thanks, Prem

    The ink tank doesn't go to the middle


    After you opened the front panel, did you lift the scanner section? The scanner section has a switch on it that activates the ink tank holders to come out to the middle so they can be changed. It is not the greatest design and it doesn't stay up by itself. I normally use an old cartridge to prop up the scanner section while I change cartridges. Hope this helps!
