Cartridge holder won't move when i press button to change ink

I have an Epson Stylus D92 printer. I want to change the cartridges as they are low ink, and when i press the 'ink' button to move the cartridge holder across to change them, it won't move no matter how many times i press it! it has a flashing red light in it too, which is the warning light for new ink i presume.
Thanks

Hi, it's not ready for a replacement cartridge yet, the printer is only LOW on ink not OUT of ink. continue to use the printer until the flashing red light remains on solidly, then the head will move to the replace cartridge poswition when you press the button.

How do I change the in on my older epson stylus photo


Hi,

Old Epson printer has an ink button usually located on the front panel, it will look like a tear drop. Press and release the button and the cartridge holder should go to a position where you can replace the Ink. You may need to press and release the button several times since Epson has a feature of detecting which ink is empty. Hope this helps.

Can you tell me how to change ink on an epson stylus cx400


The Epson Stylus CX6400 is an all-in-one printer that also features a scannermag-glass_10x10.gif for scanning and copying. The Epson CX6400 prints with ink via four separate ink cartridges in black (high or standard capacity), cyan, magenta and yellow. The cartridges sit in slots in a cartridge holder underneath the scanner. As cartridges run low, or cartridge print quality problems arise, ink cartridge replacement become necessary. As each cartridge snaps effortlessly into the cartridge holder, changing cartridges doesn't require much effort beyond unsnapping the old cartridge from the holder and replacing it with a new one. jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Instructions
  1. Step 1 Turn on the CX6400.
  2. Step 2 Check the ink levels for each cartridge. Press the "Setup" button to enter the setup mode. Press the topmost button on the left side of the LCD repeatedly until you reach the Ink Levels screen and then press the "Color" button to see the ink level percentages (for example, 0 percent or 50 percent) scroll across the screen for each cartridge (C for cyan, M for magenta, Y for yellow and K for black). Press the "OK" button to exit.
  3. Step 3 Select the empty cartridge or low cartridge option on your printer. If you're dealing with one or more empty cartridges, press the "Color" button. If you've decided to replace low ink cartridges, press the "Setup" button, press the topmost button on the left side of the LCD repeatedly until you reach the Replace Ink screen and then press the "Color" button.
  4. Step 4 Reach into the slots on both sides of the printer under the scanner unit. Lift the scanner unit up carefully to reveal the cartridge holder on the right side of the printer. Lean the scanner back to rest on its hinges.
  5. Step 5 Grip the unhinged end of the cartridge cover near the back of the printer and then pull the cartridge toward you. If this is done correctly, the cover should flip back and hang slightly out from the printer on a hinge.
  6. Step 6 Press your fingertip against the grooved tab on the cartridge that you're changing to unlock the cartridge from the holder. Once it is unlocked, pull the cartridge straight up and out of the printer and set it aside for disposal.
  7. Step 7 Shake the new replacement cartridge in its sealed packaging four to five times using a rapid side-to-side motion and then remove it from the packaging without touching the green circuit boardmag-glass_10x10.gif.
  8. Step 8 Insert the replacement cartridge in the holder and push down on it until you hear the grooved tab click, locking the cartridge in place. Remove and replace any other cartridges as needed.
  9. Step 9 Flip the cartridge cover over the cartridge holder and push down on it to lock it in place. Grasp the sides of the scanner unit and lower it gently into its previous position. Wait for the "Charging" message to disappear from the LCD and then begin printing.

How do i install my new ink cartridges in my printer epsom


Be sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin. Once you start the ink cartridge replacement procedure, you must complete all the steps in one session.
  1. Make sure the EPSON Stylus CX5400 is turned on and not printing. The LCD screen tells you which ink cartridge is low or empty.
  2. If your EPSON Stylus CX5400 is low on ink, press the left Menu button until you see Change Cartridge, then press the Color Copy button.

    If your EPSON Stylus CX5400 is out of ink, press the Color Copy button.

    The ink cartridges move to the replacement position.

  4. Lift up the scanner.

  5. ink_repl.jpg

  6. Pinch the tabs on the front and back of the cartridge, lift it out of the printer, and dispose of it carefully.

  8. Before you remove the new cartridge from its package, shake it four or five times.

  10. Unwrap the new ink cartridge and lower it into its holder, then press down on the top of the cartridge until it clicks in place.
  11. Caution: Don't touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge; you may inhibit normal operation and printing.

    If you need to replace other ink cartridges, repeat steps 4 through 6 before continuing with step 7.
  12. Carefully lower the scanner and press it down until it clicks into place. The EPSON Stylus CX5400 begins charging the ink delivery system.
  13. The On light flashes and the EPSON Stylus CX5400 makes noise. Charging takes about 30 seconds. When it's finished, the On light stops flashing and stays on.
    Caution: Never turn off the EPSON Stylus CX5400 while the On light is flashing, unless the Stylus CX hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.

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.

***if my troubleshooting steps are helpful, pls vote for me, i will appreciate it, so that I can be a part of fixya, thanks, Godbless****

How do i eject the ink carrier?


hi there,

  1. Look at the Epson printer's LCD screen to see the ink levels for each cartridge. If your cartridge is completely empty, simply press the "Color" button. If your cartridge has a low ink level, press "Setup". Hold down the button on the upper left side of your LCD screen until the words "Replace Ink" appears, then press the "Color" button.
  2. Wait until you see the words "Open the scanner" on the LCD screen. Then lift open the printer top by pulling up on the side grips next to the scanner unit. Make sure that the scanner lid remains closed. The ink cartridge holder should move to the far right of the printer.
  3. After the cartridges have completely stopped moving, pull the cover of the ink cartridge holder up and toward you. Press in the tab of the cartridge you need to replace. Lift the cartridge straight up to pull it out of the holder.
  4. Unwrap the replacement cartridge and insert it securely into the holder. Press straight down until the cartridge snaps into place.
  5. Close the cartridge holder cover and make sure it clicks into place. Close the scanner unit and wait while the printer charges the new replacement cartridge. Wait until the word "Charging" disappears from the LCD screen before using your printer.
Do not turn off your Epson printer while the "Charging" message is still on the LCD screen because this may cause your inks to not fully charge. Turn off your printer only if there has been no response for over five minutes.
Clean up any ink spills with soap and warm water.

Replacement ink cartridge: Black (T048120); Cyan (T048220); Magenta (T048320); Yellow (T048420); Light Cyan (T048520); or Light Magenta (T048620)

Hope this initial info/idea helps.

Let me know for further instructions.

Thanks

I need to change the ink cartridges on epson stylus sx200 but i need help as instruction book doesntreally tellyou how-thanks


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. Close printer cover.

How do i change the ink cartridge on my epson cx6400?


I am assuming that you already have a replacement ink cartridge.
  • Make sure the printer is on.
  • If the LCD screen says that your ink cartridge is empty than
you can simply press the Color button (the button looks sorta like a diamond with a line in the middle of it).
  • If you wanna change the ink cartridge but the printer does not say that it is empty then
press the setup button, then press the top left button until Replace ink is displayed. Finally, press the Color button.

  • Lift up the scanner section
  • Wait for ink cartridge holder to move to replacement position then open its cover.
  • Identify which cartridge you want to replace. Press in the tab to release the cartridge, then lift straight out.
  • Before unwrapping the new cartridge, shake it gently four times. Then remove from wrapper.
  • Lower new cartridge into holder, press down firmly until clicks.
  • Close cartridge cover
  • Carefully lower the scanner section and press it down until it clicks

1. Make sure the printer is turned on.
2. Make sure the document cover is closed, then closed, then open the scanner.
(Do not open the scanner when the document cover is open).
3. Press and release the ink button. The 'On' and 'Ink' lights flash.
If one of the cartridges is low or empty the printer moves that cartridge to the 'ink out' mark. Go to step 4.
If no cartridges are low or empty the ink cartridge holder moves to the ink replacement position. Go to step 5.
4. Pree the 'ink' button again.
If more than one cartridge is empty or low the next cartridge moves to the 'ink out' mark.
Once the printer identifies all the empty or low ink cartridges the print head moves to the ink cartridge replacement position.
5. Open the cartridge cover, squeeze the tab at the back of the empty cartridge and lift it out.
6. Before you open the new cartridge package shake it four or five times and remove it from the package .
(Don't remove or tear the label on the cartridge otherwise ink will leak out) .
(Don't touch the green chip on the front of the ink cartridge - you could damage the cartridge).
7. Place the new ink cartridge into the cartridge holder and push it down till it clicks into place.
8. Replace any other cartridges that need replacing.
9. Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place.
10. Close the scanner.
11. Press the 'ink' button. The printer starts charging ink and the 'on' light starts flashing . This takes about a minute . When it's finished the 'on' light stops flashing and remains on and the 'ink' light goes out.
