SOURCE: changing ink cartridge

Turn on your printer and raise the lid or press the cartridge changing button. Wait for the cartridge carrier to slide out.
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.

Close the cartridge holder lid and press the cleaning button to charge the cartridge.
Close printer cover.

    Should I buy printer cartridge or not?

    If you do not have a user manual for this printer then download one from this site. It should explain which ink cartridges types to buy and how to replace these. There are only two cartridges but based on the size you can buy different.

    How do you install ink of epson l110

    Follow the given steps:

    Step 1
    Turn on your printer and open the hatch or cover where the ink is stored. Different printer models are configured differently and may take different types of ink cartridges. Check your specific model for exact instructions (see Resources for Epson support site).
    Step 2
    Remove any old cartridges by gently pulling up and away from the printer.

    Step 3
    Remove the tape from the new ink cartridge covering the contacts. Avoid touching the contacts with your hands or clothing as this may damage the cartridge.
    Step 4
    Install the cartridge in the appropriate slot by pushing gently down and towards the printer until it snaps in. Some printer models have a black cartridge and several color cartridges. Some models only have one black cartridge and one color cartridge. Be careful not to mix them.
    Step 5
    Align your new cartridge by following the printer's instructions. Test for proper installation by printing a test page. Navigate to "Control Panel-->Printers-->Epson-->Properties-->Maintenance-->Print Test Page." If the page does not print correctly, consult Epson support for help.

    I want to know what is inside the printer cartridge


    The ink cartridge are of different type and contains ink in different form.

    • Thermal Ink jet Cartridge (HP, Canon) - The cartridge contains a liquid ink, which is heated by a heating plate on the cartridge. A bubble is formed which forces the ink which comes out of the nozzle.
    • Piezoelectric Cartridge (Epson) - The cartridge contains piezoelectric crystal, which when current is applied changes shape and size forcing ink out from the nozzle.
    • Toner (Laser Jet Printer) - A drum contains powdered ink (toner), which is spreads on the paper using negative and positive charges and the heater sticks the ink on the paper.

    I changed the color ink cartridge and it still won't print.

    The replacement cartridge may have a dried out print head, or there could be an air bubble in the ink cartridge preventing ink flow. The only thing you can really do at home is to press the bottom of the cartridge, the print head into a folded paper towel lightly moistened with warm distilled water. Be careful as the goal is to have ink soak out of the cartridge and could get on your hands. If the print head is in good shape you should see a foot print of the print head, a rectangle roughly the same size as the silver area on the cartridge. If not try a few more times. If still nothing the cartridge will need to be replaced. Cartridge World stores have equipment to prevent/repair these kinds of issues, so maybe you can give you closest one a call. :)

    Giant blobs of ink on every photo...

    If you aren't currently, use the cartridge that the printer's manual says is for photos. Photo paper requires a different kind of ink.

    When inserting a new cartridge, you may receive a prompt

    "The installed ink cartridge differs from the original ink cartridge for the printer. Your printouts may be different from those printed using original ink cartridges. Do you want to continue using the currently installed ink cartridge?"

    If you click Yes, printing will continue. If you select No, you will be prompted to change the cartridge. Manufacturer prompts may vary.
