Lift the scanner up to expose the inside of the printer. Thers a button "stop" top left face of printer, press and release and the print cartridge holder will move, press again and it will stop at the colour that needs replacing, press again (total four times) to show if other cartridges are ok. Press again and the cartridge carrier will return to right of the machine. Lift the lid (grey colour) to show the cartridges, remove and replace the ones that have been shown to be empty. Close the lid, it should click. Close the scanner down again. Press "start" to recharge the cartridge. ANy other problems try the epson support site. Good luck.

Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. 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 Genuine. When they see it’s 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, and some are refillable. Some you can refill 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)

SOURCE: changed black ink cartridge for epson stylus d120 but not working

Usually when this happens the printer fails to goes through the motions of the printing process, kind of stands still with indicator lights just blinking away. This could be as a result of either of these scenarios.
i.                     Ink cartridge has developed incompatibility or is incompatible
The Solution is to try an older/another cartridge (doesn’t matter if ink is finished. You must replace cartridge one at a time). If lights stop blinking it confirms that your cartridge has become incompatible or developed incompatibility. Also if your printer is the type that can work with only one cartridge, remove one after the other (closing back the lid/cover) to determine which in the set (black or color) has become incompatible. At the instance the incompatible one is removed and you close the lid, the blinking will stop (for printers that can print with one ink cartridge only). Just replace the incompatible one and start printing again. In most cases the issue is always with one cartridge. But if both are affected, you have to replace both. Because of this type of problem, always keep used cartridges somewhere safe; they come in handy for this type of troubleshooting.
ii.                   The Cartridge electronic panel  is dirty
The electronic panel on the cartridge that makes contact with the cartridge carrier inside the printer is dirty and needs cleaning.  This electronic panel is front part of the cartridge with copper “dots”.
The Solution is to try to clean this panel with a piece of folded tissue paper soaked in a bit of methylated spirit. Also try to clean the area in the cartridge carrier/holder that makes contact with the cartridge’s electronic panel (Usually this is more difficult). If you cannot reach it with your fingers, use a stick or something with tissue wrapped around it. Allow to dry well and return the cartridges, close the cover. The blinking should stop if the electronic panel is the issue. Once the blinking stops the printer will print.

My ink cartridges are full but when I print something it does not print blue or green. What can I do?


Assuming you've recently changed your ink cartridges the first thing you can try is seeing if you've placed the cartridges properly (did you remove all the plastic covering the cartridge so the ink can flow into the printer?)

If you haven't actually changed your cartridges in a while the printer might be registering the wrong ink levels. This will result in your cartridges not being as full as you think.

Another thing you could try is checking the printer head for anything that's keeping the ink from flowing. By printer head I mean the thingy that houses your ink cartridges. Perhaps there's some old dried up ink blocking the way?

How do you remove ink cart.


To replace an ink cartridge on a Kodak ESP C310 follow these steps:

1) Make sure your printer is on.
2) Lift the printer access door, and wait for the carriage to move to a position where you can access it. The ink cartridges are located in the printhead.
3) Pinch the tab on the ink cartridge.
4) Lift the ink cartridge out of the printhead.
5) Remove the new ink cartridge from its bag.
IMPORTANT:To prevent the printhead from drying out, insert the ink cartridge into the printhead immediately.
6) Remove the protective cap from the cartridge.
7) Insert the ink cartridge into the printhead.
8) Press down on the ink cartridge tab until you hear a click.
9) Close the printer access door.

That completes changing the ink cartridges.

Changed black cartridge and now only colour printer will print in is blue/green


The black print head most likely is blocked with dried ink.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

HP officejet pro 8500 ink cartridge problem


Changing a printer cartridge is not complex but improper handling of the parts may damage the printer and the cartridge. If the user notices that while printing the ink comes out dry or faded, it may be time to change the ink or the toner. The user will know if it is time to change the toner because instead of a sharp image, one will get a faded image. It is time to change the ink cartridge when the printing comes out spotty or colors are used to replace others —for instance, blue for black or yellow for red. Remember, faded images signal the need to change the toner; spotty printing signals the need to change the ink cartridge get more help for change cartridge .
Hope this helps you.

CHANGED COLOR CARTRIDGE AS I HAVE MANY TIMES BEFORE. NOT WORKING. MESSAGE IS THAT THIS CARTRIDGE WAS NOT INSTALLED CORRECTLY. HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING - HELP PLEASE ! thanks


good day sir/ma'am, hi, the reason why the printed sends the mesaage "cartridge not installed correctly" mean that it cannot get ink from those cartridges due to dirt and dust, or the ink on the cradle dried out, you may need to clean the cradle, the part were it houses the ink cartridges, since dried ink is solluble to water, use warm water to clean the cartridge. you can remove the cradle or use a dipstick with cloth wrap around and dip it to the dried ink. If the dried ink has soften enough you can place again your cartridge and test print again, do this several times to get the ink flow again. Carefull not to moisten the electronics part of your printer. thats it.
