How to change cartridges on an Epson Color 760???

Hi, I have just connected a Color760 to a PC running MS XP. The printer hasn't been used for a couple of months and I'd like to replace the cartridges but...I hold the cartridge key down for 3 seconds (as suggested on the sticker under the lid) only for the cartridges to emerge briefly and then return "home" without going to the far end of the transport and allowing me to remove them. Can anyone suggest a way to make them co-operate please?? All suggestions gratefully received! Best wishes and Happy New Year to all.

Hold the paper button until the cartridges move to the left position where you can change them

My Epson Stylus Color 760 printer tells me there's still ink

If your ink was installed Feb. 2007, then most probably it got expired as you said you have done test prints but with faint samples.

It is advisable to install new and genuine epson ink cartridge.

Hook Up possible for EPSON Stylus 880 to new computer w/USB ?

There is no conversion cable that you can use with parallel connector since USB transfers data in Serial mode and the parallel cable handles data in Parallel mode.

My printer wont print, and i think theres dry ink in the dispenser, but i dont know how to take it out, because the cartridge holder doesnt come out. i have an epson stylus colour 760. btw, i DID change...


Try running the head cleaning cycles from printer utility. then try reprinting. You can press ink button for 3secs as well to auto clean printhead.

Hope this helps

Ink not empty

You have confused the software in either changing a cartridge when not required or having a chip failure whilst changing multiple cartridges.
Full info on how to get out of this is on my site.

Please go to my website . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.

The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.

For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

Happy trouble free printing

Epson stylus color 760 failing to print.

you can take it to repair shop and they will clean the head for you with some cleaning fluid if it has been without ink for a while sometimes these get blocked but it is not worth replacing cus would cost more than the printer as the ink cartridge you brought was originall then this isnt the problem check all cables if not better off buying new printer as these are not made to last long sorry couldnt be any,more help...........................

Epson Stylus color Printer prints strange lines and doesnt use all colors

You can get this sometimes in Publisher programmes, it's a glitch, but also check cartridge alignment. If your not happy uninstal printer driver, disconnect printer and re instal driver first then re connect your printer.
