Did you properly or surely remove the sealer on the cartridge? If you did it, then you should try the following below:
1) Take the cartridge off and put it back, make sure is in the right way.
2) Push the cleaner bar all the way were it belongs.
3) Press the "on" button for 10 seconds.
4) Disconnect the printer and have re-start.
5) Call a friend that knows about electronics.

How do I change ink cartridges onEpson Stylus SX425W printer. Apart from lifting the scanner I cant see any buttons to press and the present cartridges wont move along to enable me to eject the black one.


Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid that covers the print-head mechanism.
In a few seconds, the print-heads will slide to a position where the ink-cartridge can be removed.
Then, "unlock" the ink-cartridge from its socket, and gently remove it.
Replace it.
Then, "lock" the ink-cartridge into place, and close the lid.
Print a test-page.

How to change printing cartridges


Here's how to change your cartridges: 1 Make sure the printer is on. 2 Lift the scanner unit. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the printer is busy. printmastert_25.jpg

3 Press down on the cartridge carrier latch to raise the cartridge carrier lid. printmastert_26.jpg

4 Remove the used print cartridge. Note: If you are removing both cartridges, repeat step 3 and step 4 for the second cartridge.

Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't automatically move to its loading position even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Follow the steps below:

1. Unplug the printer from the power source.

2. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip that connects from the carrier assembly to the ink cartridge carrier and gently slide the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer.

3. Remove the used cartridges.

4. Load the new cartridges. Close the cover.

5. Plug the printer back to the power source.

2 SEPARATE FLASHING LIGHT INDICATORS FLASHING. I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO PAPER JAM.


"All lights blinking and printer not responding" is indicative of serious ink cartridge issue. Usually when this happens the printer fails to goes through the motions of the printing process, kind of stands still with indicator lights just blinking away. This could be as a result of either of these scenarios.




The Solution is to try an older/another cartridge (doesn't matter if ink is finished. You must replace cartridge one at a time). If lights stop blinking it confirms that your cartridge has become incompatible or developed incompatibility. Also if your printer is the type that can work with only one cartridge, remove one after the other (closing back the lid/cover) to determine which in the set (black or color) has become incompatible. At the instance the incompatible one is removed and you close the lid, the blinking will stop (for printers that can print with one ink cartridge only). Just replace the incompatible one and start printing again. In most cases the issue is always with one cartridge. But if both are affected, you have to replace both. Because of this type of problem, always keep used cartridges somewhere safe; they come in handy for this type of troubleshooting.












The electronic panel on the cartridge that makes contact with the cartridge carrier inside the printer is dirty and needs cleaning. This electronic panel is front part of the cartridge with copper "dots".

The Solution is to try to clean this panel with a piece of folded tissue paper soaked in a bit of methylated spirit. Also try to clean the area in the cartridge carrier/holder that makes contact with the cartridge's electronic panel (Usually this is more difficult). If you cannot reach it with your fingers, use a stick or something with tissue wrapped around it. Allow to dry well and return the cartridges, close the cover. The blinking should stop if the electronic panel is the issue. Once the blinking stops the printer will print.

All the lights keep flashing --won't print!


I removed the black ink cartridge that was REFILLED at a popular retail outfit and replaced it with a remanufactured one I bought on the web. As soon as I closed the lid, the flashing stopped and it has been working GREAT ever since. Many postings had already recommended the changing to a "new cartridge" to remedy this flashing lights and "pen failure."

I lifted the lid to change the ink cartridge and the cartridges go to the left and then back to the right where I cannot get to them


Withe power on, lift the lid, on light will flash, wait 15-20 seconds, manually pull the ink cartridge to the left. It will not return untill you close the lid again. If you cahnge the ink you will get the question about which ink cartridge did you just change, this happens the first time you want to print something. Answer the question and you are done done.
