I need to make the ink carriage move over so I can replace the ink cartridges inmy workforce 840. Online here it says "hit theink button" what the heck does that mean? Where is this ink button?...


this is out of the manual

Replacing Ink Cartridges
Make sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin.
Caution:
Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink. Cartridges are
vacuum packed to maintain reliability.
Leave the expended cartridge installed until you have obtained a replacement, or the
ink remaining in the print head nozzles may dry out.
1. Turn on the product.
2. If an ink cartridge is low or expended, you see a
message on the LCD screen indicating which
color to replace. Press OK.
If you're replacing a cartridge before you see a message on the LCD screen,
press Setup, select Maintenance, then select Ink Cartridge Replacement.
3. Raise the scanner.
4. Open the cartridge cover. Then squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift it up.
Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.
Warning:
If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets
into your eyes, flush them immediately with water. Keep ink cartridges out of the
reach of children and don't drink the ink.
5. Before you open the new cartridge package, shake
it gently four or five times. Then remove it from
the package.
6. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the
ink cartridge.
Caution:
Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink will
leak. Do not touch the green chip on the front of the
cartridge. This can damage the ink cartridge.

1. Turn on the product.
2. If an ink cartridge is low or expended, you see a
message on the LCD screen indicating which
color to replace. Press OK.
If a cartridge is expended, you must replace it to be able to print or copy. If a
cartridge is low, you can continue printing until a cartridge needs
replacement.
If you're replacing a cartridge before you see a message on the LCD screen,
press xMenu, press u or d to select Maintenance, and press OK. Then
select Ink Cartridge Replacement and press OK.
3. Open the scanner, then open the cartridge cover.
4. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift it up.
Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used

7. Insert the new ink cartridge into the holder
and push it down until it clicks into place.
8. Once you replace all the cartridges that need replacing, close the cartridge
cover and push it down until it clicks into place.
9. Close the scanner.
10. Press OK to begin charging the ink. This takes
about 2 1/2 minutes. When you see a
completion message on the LCD screen, ink
charging is finished.

Caution:

Never turn off the product while ink is charging or you'll waste ink. If you see an ink
replacement message on the LCD screen, press OK and press down all the cartridges
securely. Then press OK again. If you remove a low or expended ink cartridge, you
cannot reinstall and use the cartridge.

Note: Leave the expended cartridge installed until you have obtained a replacement, or the ink remaining in the print head nozzles may dry out. 1. Turn on your printer. 2.

If a cartridge is low or expended, the print head moves that cartridge to the replacement position to indicate that it should be replaced. The P Power light starts flashing. If two or more ink cartridges are expended, the expended cartridge at the far left moves to the replacement position. The P Power light starts flashing. If no cartridges are low or expended, the print head does not move. Note: Do not hold the y Stop button for more than three seconds, or the printer may start cleaning the print head. 5. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift it up. Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.

Yellow ink cannot be recognize by the printer


The problem is that the priter can't detect the ink, because the cartridge has low level ink. I put scotch tape and colored it yellow- on the part where the ink is detected - so the printer will detect the color I put on the tape. BUT as others said it can damage your printer if you will always do this.

Have you made sure you removed the backing plastic from the cartridge sensor?
Try reinstalling the driver and do a nozzle and head alignment test. If you still have the same issue, try doing a hard reset - unplug the printer from power and PC, wait for about 10 minutes and replug everything and see. If the issue still occurs, there could be an issue with the cartridge sensor on your printer, which will require servicing.

Ink Cartridge Error


on your cartridges there is a chip that detects if the ink is low. The chip on your yellow cartridge is bad. You should return the cartridge for a new one(if you still have your receipt) or visit a Cartridge World in your area and they can put a new chip on for you

Will not accept new yellow ink cartridge.


Do you use generic carts?
If yes try another cart (always best: original brother carts)
