The on/ off button & the paper/ ink level button both flash. Paper installed. Ink cartridges OK. Windows can see the printer. I can perform maintenance tasks, ie: cleaning the print nozzles. However, I cannot print a "Test Page"

Epson stylus c42ux how do I put in new ink? I can't get to the print cartridges

Power up the printer and open the lid. The print head should come to the center. When you close the lid, it will go back to it's park position. Don't pull it over with the power off.

Will not work with windows vista

Many older printers are not supported, Try the website to see if they have a driver, otherwise do like I do and install VMware on your computer and run windows XP in a virtual machine and install your printer there.

Printer cartridges


I solved this problem; there was a white plastic "piece" stuck upwards and all I did was push it back down. Now the cartridges are able to go all the way to the right and the printer is working properly. Looks like I need to replace the cartridges now, that's all.
