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

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 can't get the ink cartridge out of my Epsonstylus  - 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.

How to change ink

Make sure the printer is on but not printing.
  1. lift the printer cover,
  2. Press the Maintenance button for about 6 secs - the print heads will now move to the center of the printer.
  3. Pull up the clamp all the way for the empty cartridge. The cartridge now lifts up from its holder, remove the cartridge.
  4. The New cartiridge ONLY remove the yellow tape seal from the the black and/or the colour cartridge. Note: If you accidently remove anything but the yellow seal you cannot use the cartridge or it will damage the printer.
  5. Install the new cartridge, tilt the ink cartridge forward slightly as you lower it into its holder. Hang the tabs at the back of the cartridge on the hooks on the holder clamps. Don't place the cartridge tabs under the hooks on the holder clamp; you may damage the clamp when you close it.
  6. Install the ink cartridge and press the Maintenance button this will purge the ink. This takes approx 1min and is complete when the power light stops flashing and the error light goes out.

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.

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.

My epsonstylus cx4200 wont print with black ink.

Please ensure that you have removed (Completely) all yellow tape on the top of the cartridge.If it is not completely removed a vacuum can form preventing the flow of ink.

Run a few cleaning cycles.

Try a local print test...

As for thr G4 sorry but I can help you except to power off all devices, power up and reboot.

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

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
