Question about Epson Expression Home XP-410 Small-in-One Wireless All-In-One Printer
Hello, I have an Epson XP-410, and I cannot get an ink cartridge to go in. I have replaced three of the four with no problem, just remove the sticker and gently push to snap in. With the fourth one, however, something is different. If you imagine looking at an ink cartridge when it seated properly, the *back wall* of the space immediately surrounding the cartridge has *a little piece with nine pointy gold pins.* That piece, normally low on the back wall, has somehow slid upward to the top of its slot. You may have to look at yours to see what I mean. Anyway--the question is: *How do I move the piece with the nine gold pins back down so that it is positioned like the others?* I will be unable to insert the cartridge until I can figure this out. Help me FixYa, you're my only hope! :)
Push it downward and if it is broken you have to speak with authorized service

Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. You need to consider 2 things, firstly the official line: Epson (and all other inkjet manufacturers) do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing. It is also why the "print in Black only" option (available on some printers) only works when the coloured inks are OK.
The 2nd unofficial line is that it is a win-win situation for manufacturers. Firstly they get to cut down on costly warranty call outs for blocked heads (replacement printers, technician manhours, etc) and secondly they get to sell lots more inks (Ka-ching!). If you really want to print black text only (and save cash on price per-print) then a mono-laser printer is the best way as they can now be bought at inkjet prices.

I had the same problem except it would not recognize any of the ink cartridges. I kept hitting the OK button over and over again with the same cartridges in place not removing them at all and it finally recognized them. Decided to go to maintenance on the printer to do a test, and it went right back to not recognizing the cartridges. So i pressed the OK button over and over again until it finally recognized all the cartridges again, but this time i did not try and go into the maintenance to do a test run. Plugged it up to the computer and it has been working ever since. So press the OK button until it recognizes the cartridges, and run no tests on it is what my solution was for the problem. Really is a pain but it works now.

I tried two things of which one solved the problem. I am not sure which. Secondly, I have an R260 printer which is a less featured member of the printer family uses Claria inks like R360 and R380. I called Epson and they simply sent me replacement cartridges for the two black ink cartridges with which I had a problem. My printer did not recognize these new cartridges either. I noticed that both the ones I bought and the replacement ones have a slot hole near the green chip on the cartridge. The empty cartridge did not have this slot. They just had some circular depressions. So, I put a piece of masking tape over the slot and tried again but still no luck. However, when I removed the cartridge, this time a small piece popped out. This piece connects to pins on both sides. So, it is obviously an interface between the cartridge and the printer. I pressed this piece back in, replaced the cartridge with the tape on it back it and, voila, it works. Most likely this interface piece was loose and simply pressing on the cartridge didn't get it in far enough or who knows. You maybe able to take thiis piece out and replace it or merely push down on it with a pen but first, flash a light on it first to see if it is not sitting awkwardly.

Click on Epson, then Monitor status then Properties then replacement. A page will come up saying To get carriage into position click O.K. on this page. When you do that the carriage moves into position and you can take out the old cartridges and replace them
