Hi kathy first thing is don't be afraid of your printer your not going to kill it lol , look on your instruction manuel it will tell you either to open the printer and hold down one paticular button for say ten seconds .. or go to the onscreen menu for your printer on your computer and select Cartridge change if you dont have a book or a utilities program that has this on then just open the printer and look at the cartridge along the body of the printer there may be a cutaway where the head should be when you change a cartridge , if it is in that position already just release the clip on the side of the head or just ease the head out of the cradle and replace with new one .. remembering to tear the yellow strip off the bottom first .. now you didnt say what model it was but if you are gentle the carrige can be moved by hand to the right position not recomeneded but doo able where you can get at it . Then press the start button and the printer should go into re-set mode on it's own and do a print head clean and purge .. hope this helps .. Regards Vortash

How do I know how much ink is left in my c3135 printer


Welcome to Fixya.

Here's how to determine the ink levels for your inkjet printer :

HPC3135 Ink Level check

Please see my additional reminders :
  • If the printing quality diminishes, it's a good time to check your ink levels.
  • Change your cartridge often for good printing quality.
  • If you refill the cartridge, the ink level indicator may not be accurate.
  • Don't wait until the last minute to change your cartridge.
Thanks for using Fixya.

I dont have any coloured ink cartidges left and need to immediately print some forms in full black will be okay but i cannot change my colours to black as the ink holder stays on the far right of my epson...


To print in all black, you can change a setting through the computer to tell the printer to only use the black ink. This is better than putting black ink where the color ink normally would go as that would cause the shading to be wrong and potentially ruin the documents.
If you have enough black ink in the printer, before you finalize the printing process make sure you have black and white only selected.
This will allow you to print without getting access to the ink cartridge holders.
Good luck hope this helps.

How to test the epson stylus color 440 printer wthout a ink cartridge


You cannot test an Epson printer without both ink cartridges installed with a good supply of ink in them. All the printer will do is turn on the power. Nothing more. There is no way around this problem. They are built this way on purpose. The print heads in the printer can be ruined by allowing the printer to sit without ink cartridges in it. If you replace them, you might find that it no longer works depending on the amount of time it has sat without ink.

If you are considering purchasing a used printer that does not have any ink cartridges to test and see if it works, then all I can adivse is to be careful. You can get refilled cartridges from a company who sells them professionally for about 1/3 of the cost of brand new cartridges from a department store. Be careful using refilled cartridges though. It may void the printers warranty with Epson.

Hope this helps?

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.

Installing a new ink cartridge


After working with the copier for over an hour, my husbband discovered quite by accident where the ink cartridge was located. It is inside on the left hand side, above the try that holds paper, and is next to impossible to see. It pulls out to the middle of the tray, and the cartridge can then be changed. Thank you so much for you time.
Sincerely,
Becky LaCour

Epson stylus cx4800 won't print


Hi, reason we sell epson printers are they are the cheapest to run, but they do get alot of problems with the print heads, if you change from using refill ink kits to compatible ink cartridges you would not have to reset the chip each time, otherwise you will have to change to a more expensive to run printer like the HP, or Lexmark, lexmark is the most expensive for cartridges but it has the print heads built into the cartridge and not the printer itsself, epson only have the chip on the cartridge.
You can use the refill kits on most HP & Lexmark without having to reset the cartridge all you need to do is refill it.
but for every 3 for example you may have to buy a new cartridge which will be more expensive, ie if you get lines through your print, as the print head will probably get blocked on cartrdige.

Happy New Year
