Just RTFM it says hold maintainance button for six seconds and the cartridge carrier will come to the middle of the rail. so just do that if you unplug the power in the middle of a job you run the risk of frying the chip module and or jamming the paper.

Normally hold the cartridge button for about 3 seconds the cartridge carriage will move and then open the door and remove the cartridges. If is does not work the other way is send a print job to the printer wait until the printer starts printing then remove the power cord. Once you have done this open the cover and you will be able to move the print cartridge manually.

Then you will be able to remove the cartridges. If the carriage cannot move and the carriage is stuck and this is the cause of you query then you will have to remove the complete top cove there should be four screws holding this down. Once removed remove the cartridge that is causing the blockage.


I hope this works for you
Thanks J

How do i get the cartridge out


Press the fontb1.gif maintenance button. The print head moves to the black or color ink cartridge replacement position, the fontp.gif power light begins to flash, and the fontb1.gif error light begins to flash or remains on. When both cartridges are out of ink, the print head moves to the black ink cartridge replacement position first. After replacing the black cartridge, press the fontb1.gif maintenance button again to switch to the color cartridge replacement position.

I can't figure out how to get ink cartridges out


Simply lift up the cover and the print head should move to the middle and lift the cartridge slowly and carefully out of the holder.

Hi, please tell me how to install a new black ink cartridge into my epsonstylus D78 printer


Open the cover. Press the Ink/maint button (triangle shape on button) this moves the carriage to indicate empty cartridge. keep pressing until carriage moves to the ink replacement position. Open ink cartridge cover and remove the cart. Ensure you remove the yellow tape on new cart' before installing and be careful not to touch the chip on the cart'. Push new cart' in until it clicks. Close lid (ensure clicks down), close printer cover and press ink button again.

Can't get the ink cartridge out of my Epsonstylus C40UX


Refer to your printer manual, or the online manual at:

http://support.epson-europe.com/onlineguides/en/sc40/index.htm

Select "How To", "Replacing Ink Cartridges","Replacing An Ink Cartridge", then "Using the Printer's control panel". Ignore the blurb about lights etc, and proceed from "To replace an ink cartridge using the fontb1.gif maintenance button ....".

There is also the "generic" approach. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head starts to move, pull the power lead out of the printer, or turn it off at the mains. The print head should now be free to move (gently!) by hand to the cartridge change position. The snag here is there is no inherent means of running an ink charge cycle - do a couple of head clean cycles instead.
