The solution was simple. The printer belonged to a friend who assured me he had replaced both ink cartridges when they ran out. So for some time I did not check them. On removing one cartridge it was obvious that he had accidentallyor unknowingly removed the contact strip on the print head so the printer could not detect or use the new cartridge. An expensive mistake for a newcomer to home printing as he had done the same to both cartridges.

How do i change my ink cartridges in my epson workforce 520 series 3 in 1 printer?


Replacing Ink Cartridges
Make sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin.
Caution:
Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink. Cartridges are
vacuum packed to maintain reliability.
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 the product.
2. If an ink cartridge is low or expended, you see a
message on the LCD screen indicating which
color to replace. Press OK.
If a cartridge is expended, you must replace it to be able to print or copy. If a
cartridge is low, you can continue printing until a cartridge needs
replacement.
If you're replacing a cartridge before you see a message on the LCD screen,
press xMenu, press u or d to select Maintenance, and press OK. Then
select Ink Cartridge Replacement and press OK.
3. Open the scanner, then open the cartridge cover.
4. 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 and don't drink the ink.
5. Before you open the new cartridge package,
shake it gently four or five times. Then remove
it from the package.
6. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of
the ink cartridge.
Caution:
Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink will
leak. Do not touch the green chip on the front of
the cartridge. This can damage the ink cartridge.
7. Insert the new ink cartridge into the holder
and push it down until it clicks into place.
8. Once you replace all the cartridges that need replacing, close the cartridge
cover and push it down until it clicks into place.
9. Close the scanner.
10. Press OK to begin charging the ink. This takes
about 2 1/2 minutes. When you see a
completion message on the LCD screen, ink
charging is finished.

Caution:

Never turn off the product while ink is charging or you'll waste ink. If you see an ink
replacement message on the LCD screen, press OK and press down all the cartridges
securely. Then press OK again. If you remove a low or expended ink cartridge, you
cannot reinstall and use the cartridge.

No B/W print while black cartridge is full.


Your printer and its software will let you know when an ink cartridge is low or expended.

If an ink cartridge is low or expended, you see a message on the Epson Stylus CX8400 LCD display screen. If a cartridge is expended, you must replace it to be able to print. If a cartridge is low, you can continue printing until a cartridge needs replacement.

NOTE:
You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not expended. Replace any expended cartridges before printing or copying.

When an installed ink cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it if your printouts do not look their best, even after cleaning and aligning the print head.


Follow the steps below to replace one or more ink cartridges that are low on ink, expended, or too old:

1. Turn on the printer.

If you're replacing a cartridge before you see a message on the LCD display screen, press Setup, select Maintenance, and press OK. Then select Change Ink Cartridge and press OK.

2. Open the scanner.

3. Open the cartridge cover.

4. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift the cartridge straight up to remove it. Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.

5. Before opening the new cartridge package, shake it four or five times. (Do not shake a cartridge after opening the package; ink may leak.)

6. Remove the cartridge from the package, but be careful not to touch the green chip on the cartridge.

7. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the cartridge.

CAUTION:
Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink will leak.

8. Insert the new cartridge into the holder and push it down until it clicks into place.

9. Once you replace all the necessary cartridges, close the cartridge cover and push it down until it clicks into place.

10. Close the scanner.

11. Press OK to begin charging the ink. This takes about 2 minutes.

When you see a completion message on the LCD display screen, ink charging is finished.

CAUTION:
Never turn off the printer while ink is charging or you'll waste ink. If you see an ink replacement message on the LCD display screen, press OK and press down all the cartridges securely.
