Removal and replacement is pretty straightforward but I know how some instructions and pictures are not clear. So this is what you need to do. Power off the printer and lift the lid up so that you can see the ink cartridges. You can put your fingers on them and move the ink cartridge carrier to the center so that you can reach them easily. If you will look at your new ink cartridge you can see how they have to set in the carriage. There is a small tab that you click up to release and bring the old ink cartridge up enough where you just pick up out of there. By looking at your old one you will see how the new one just falls into place and clicks in. Some printers do not have a small tab that you click up and for those you just grab the ink cartridge from both sides with your fingers and pull up. It will come right out and the new one will click into place as well. Be sure to take off any stickers that protect the ink cartridge before you place them in.

Epson stylus DX4450 i have changed the ink and the ink button the red light is still on and it will not let me print?


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?
Epson Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. That sounds like your problem. Also in Purchasing the Brother's . Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.
These printers have a chip, that will detect if it is Generic or Genunie. When using Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, but you have to fill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it.

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

How do you change the ink cartridge on an epson DX4450? many thanks


Hi

Open the scanner and make sure its support locks in place.

Press the Stop button. The print head moves to the position to indicate which cartridge is low or expended.


Press the Stop button again. If another cartridge is low or expended, it moves to the teardrop position. Press the Stop button again to see if more cartridges are low or expended. If no other cartridges are low or expended, the print head moves to the replacement position on the right.

Open the cartridge cover.

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.



Before opening the new cartridge package, shake it four or five times.
8. Remove the cartridge from the package, but be careful not to touch the green chip on the cartridge.
9. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the cartridge. Caution:
Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink will leak.
10. Insert the new cartridge into the holder and push it down until it clicks into place.
11. Once you replace all the necessary cartridges, close the cartridge cover and push it down until it clicks into place.
12. Release the scanner support and close the scanner.
13. 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.

It seems that the connection on the cartridge and the printer are not proper. Remove the cartridge and clean the connectors on the cartridge and the printer. Also remove the tape on the print head.

What about it? Huh? Give us a clue will ya? You want to know how to do it? When to do it? Or are you telling us you are doing it?

Put some detail in your posts please. And why post it under a generic problem for all printers. It's fairly obvious your problem relates to an Epson DX4450
