Question about Epson WorkForce WF-2540 All-in-One Inkjet Printer
To get to the ink cartridges you need to lift up the entire scanner surface like the hood of a car. This is not the lid you lift to place a document on the glass; it includes the glass and mechanism underneath as well. The ink cartridges are on a moving carriage which will move them to the center of the carriage rail once you open the printer lid. Don't move the carriage by hand, it does this automatically. From there it is pretty easy. Each ink cartridge has a tab you press in to release the cartridge. Then just lift it up and toward you. Once you replace the ink, be sure to clean and re-align the printer heads. This is done from the touch screen menu. If you need more details, here is a link to the owner's manual, which you can download and view and/or print. The instructions for cartridge replacement begins on page 191. For print head maintenance, there are more details on page 203 of the manual and links to the supporting pages within the document. https://files.support.epson.com/pdf/wf2540/wf2540ug.pdf

They cut costs on Epson compatible cartridges by using low quality ink and chips or not resetting the chips at all. Sounds like you got cartridges that the chips were not reset on so your printer thinks all the cartridges are empty. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I would never recommend purchasing compatible Epson cartridges from anyone. I would buy refills of Epson brand cartridges and make sure the seller reset the chips.

Replacing ink cartridges
Make sure you have a new ink cartridge or cartridges before you begin. You must install new cartridges immediately
after removing the old ones or the ink remaining in the printhead nozzles may dry out.
1 Turn on your printer.
2 Open the printer.
Note: The printhead moves to the cartridge installation position.
3 Press the release tab, and then remove the used ink cartridge or cartridges.
4 Install each ink cartridge. Use two hands to install the black cartridge.
Note: Install the new ink cartridges immediately after removing the protective cap to avoid exposing the ink to air.
5 Close the printer.
The setup guide is on theCD you received with the printer.

The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading
position unless the printer is busy.

1. Look at the indicator light on your Lexmark printer.
You'll need to replace ink cartridges when the light flashes or turns red
instead of the standard green.
2. Purchase Lexmark ink cartridges. You can buy the brand
name or purchase a generic version that is compatible with your printer. You
can shop for low cost ink cartridges from ABC Ink.
3. Remove the old cartridges from your printer. Grip the
sides of the Lexmark ink cartridges and pull it out. Dispose of the ink
cartridges in a recycle program like the one at Staples or save the cartridges
4. Install the new ink cartridges after removing the
protective tabs. Avoid touching the IC chip when installing the new Lexmark ink
cartridges. Replace the cover of the printer.
5. Allow the Lexmark printer to run a nozzle test. Print
several pages with the new ink cartridges to make sure you installed the ink
cartridges correctly. The indicator light should return to a solid green color.
