Thanks for your call back. I did find a solution after my request for help I read through the website and under solutions read and tried the solution posted by ICHIBANDESI which worked for me. I had been unable to have the cartridge holder remain on the left-hand side after turning the printer off. With the printer turned on it remained to the left and I was able to remove and replace the cartridges without any further problems and it prints okay.
Thanks again for the helpful suggestions on your site.

Having trouble removing ink cartridge on hp e709n printer


Hello Sandi,

According to the product information you provided in your post, the following information should be able to provide you with the information needed to help you remove and replace the ink cartridges for your printer.

Ink Cartridge Removal Steps:

Keep your printer plugged in and on during this process.

1. Open the cartridge access door. The carriage moves to the center of the product. Wait until the carriage stops moving before proceeding.

Illustration of cartridge access door

2. Each ink cartridge will have plastic tabs located directly in front of them. Press in the tab on the front of one of the cartridges, and then pull it out and up to remove it from its slot. Once you have pressed the tab, you then pull up and out on the cartridge and it should come out easily.

Illustration of process:
c01495178.gif

3. Repeat this step to remove all cartridges from their slots. Remember that each ink cartridge will have to be removed individually if your printer has more than one cartridge.

Replacing the cartridge with the new one:

1. Remove the ink cartridge from the packaging and then remove the protective covering.

2. Hold the ink cartridge in the same position as you removed the old ones. Push in and then down on the new ink cartridge which should lock them into position with the tabs automatically and you will you will usually hear a clicking noise when this is done.

3. Close the cartridge access door. The printer will automatically reposition the cartridge print head assembly for you.

This should complete the process and you should now be able to print. Some printer will ask or recommend that you print a test page so that it can calibrate the desired ink usage, position, darkness, etc. If this appears on your screen just follow the directions as prompted to complete the test page.

I hope this provides you with a bit more clarity for removing and reinstalling your printer ink cartridges. If you have any further questions or need additional assistance, please feel free to ask. Have a good day.

Ink holder will not stop in middle to change ink


Hi, normally when changing ink cartridge, once you open the cover the printer head move from home to the center of the printer and halted,if in case this not happen something wrong with the sensor, if the printer move from home to center just pull off the power cord to stop the printer at the middle or nearly at the middle just to remove the cartridge and replace it. Upon replacing the ink cartridge, just power on the printer and it will return home to its position.

How do i install my ink cartridges into my epson stylus nx125

Replacing Ink Cartridges Make sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin. You must install new cartridges immediately after removing the old ones. Caution: Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink. Cartridges are vacuum packed to maintain reliability. Note: Leave the expended cartridge installed until you have obtained a replacement, or the ink remaining in the print head nozzles may dry out. 1. Turn on your printer. 2. If an ink cartridge is expended, the error and ink lights on the control panel stay on. 3. Open the document cover, then open the ink cover. Caution: Do not remove the ink cartridge guard or you may damage the printer.24 Maintaining Your Printer 4. Press the y Stop button. If a cartridge is low or expended, the print head moves that cartridge to the replacement position to indicate that it should be replaced. The P Power light starts flashing. If two or more ink cartridges are expended, the expended cartridge at the far left moves to the replacement position. The P Power light starts flashing. If no cartridges are low or expended, the print head does not move. Note: Do not hold the y Stop button for more than three seconds, or the printer may start cleaning the print head. 5. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift it up. Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it. Warning: If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets into your eyes, flush them immediately with water. Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children.Replacing Ink Cartridges 25 6. Before you open the new cartridge package, shake it gently four or five times. Then remove the cartridge from the package. Caution: Do not touch the green chip on the front of the cartridge. This can damage the ink cartridge. 7. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the ink cartridge. Caution: Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink may leak. 8. Insert the new ink cartridge into the holder and push it down until it clicks into place. 9. Press the y Stop button. If another cartridge is low or expended, it moves to the replacement position. Repeat steps 5 through 8 to replace any other cartridges that need to be replaced. When you press the y Stop button and no other cartridges need to be replaced, the print head moves to its home position and the printer starts priming the ink. This takes about 1 1/2 minutes.26 Maintaining Your Printer When the P Power light stops flashing and the error and ink lights go out, ink charging is finished. 10. Close the ink cover, then close the document cover. Caution: Never turn off the your Epson printer while ink is charging or you'll waste ink. If the error and ink lights remain on after the print head moves into its home position, an ink cartridge may not be installed properly. Press the y Stop button again, and then press the ink cartridge down securely. Note: If you replaced a cartridge while copying a document or photo, cancel printing and make sure your original is still placed correctly on the document table. Then copy your original again. If you remove a low or expended ink cartridge, you cannot reinstall and use the cartridge.
