Connect the power cord, rise the cover that accesses to the print-carriage, turn On the printer; when the print-carriage move to left, unplug the power cord then, manually, move the carriage until the right area where you can open the cartridges-cover and change the cartridge you need.

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.

Changing ink in Epson DX6000 printer

Normally, you lift the scanner/copy bed up while the unit is on and then the cartridge moves to the center.

Have you tried this and if so without success? let me know so I can find the secret if there is one for you.

Remove ink cartridge

I found that the proper way to do it only worked when the ink light was flashing red. Then when I pressed the stop button it moved across and stopped beneath the marker to show which cartridge needed changing. The I pressed the stop button again and it moved to a place where I could change it.
This happened despite the fact that the pictures I was printing blatently showed that I needed to replace my ink, it wasn't until I had printed the liney pictures a few times that the printer decided the ink level was low enough to turn the flashing light on and let me change it.

Epson R320 carriage jammed

The ink cartridge is probably not inserted correctly.  Unplug the printer and manually move the carriage to a location where you can take the ink cartridge out.
Remove it and reinsert it, making sure that it is fully located, before applying the power.
Make sure that there is nothing blocking the carriage movement, such as some remnant of paper.

1. Press the paper jam/ink button on the printer control panel.
2. A menu comes up. 1st item is ink cartridge replacement. Press
OK button.
3. Another menu with ink cartridge replacement. Press OK button.
4. Thats it, ink cartridges move to the changing position. Change your cartridge as you normally would and follow prompts on screen to finish process.

Hope this helps.

Ink carriage jammed

Well, I'm not too happy that the only response I got was solicitation for the Premium Assistance Plan.

Figuring that the printer had pretty much died, I allowed my husband, Mr. Fix-It, to give it a try. He simply pushed up on the front end of the ink carrier and slid it into the opening. This allowed him to get at the cartridges and push gently down on the new cartridge I'd installed. It had not been seated completely. Works fine now.

I'd be curious to know why I found a huge ink spot under the printer. It has probably been there for quite some time, as I usually just dust around things rather than move them.
