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.

We have just put a new black ink cartridge in our printer and now it won't print. The computer says it is error# 5200 and to see the user guide. The manuals don;t have any info to help. I have tried...

Error 5200:

Start with printer powered off
1. Open cover of printer and verify that the ink cartridge carriage is not in the center of the printer. Leave cover open.
2. Unplug the electrical cord from the printer and wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug electrical cord back in, when ink cartridge carriage moves to the center of the printer quickly unplug the electrical cord again. This should leave the ink cartridge carriage in the center of the printer so you can get to it.
4. Lift up the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridges.

I am not able to get the ink cartridge to go to the centre of the printer in order to take it for replacement purposes

usually you have a button (according to printer's manual) that places the ink carriage to the correct position to replace the ink cartridges, or in print manager of your operating system, if not than you can cheat by powering on the printer and when the carriage unparks (move) power it off immediately before it goes back to the parking position, by pulling the power plug, than you can freely move the ink carriage by hand to the desired position to change the ink cartridge, once that is done you plug the printer back on....

Good luck!

How do you replace ink in EPSON TX110? Paul

The procedure is shown on the panel you can see if you open the cartridge compartment of your TX110. However, it can take some effort to decipher the icons. It is known to work if the ink low light is on, untested otherwise.

  1. Turn on the printer.
  2. Press and hold the STOP button until the cartridge tray moves out of its bay. It will stop at the ink low notch pointing to the first cartridge out.
  3. Press STOP again. The cartridge tray will move to show you the next cartridge low on ink.
  4. Repeat until you know all cartridges out. After the last cartridge pointed to, the tray will move again and stop in the area where all cartridges can be accessed by hand.
That's it folks!
