OKay, first, you grab under that control panel, you know, with the COPY, SCAN, PRINT, etc buttons? So you lift it up, and the whole top of the machine goes up. Wait a bit, and these cartidges should pop up. So grab the cartridge you wanna remove, and pull slightly down on it, and it should come out. Then, slide in the new cartridge slightly upwards, and viola! it should slide in. THen, close the top, and you have changed the ink! YAY!

Do I have to replace the color ink cartrigdes in my epson xp-610 printer


Q:




How do I change the ink cartridges?






A:




Do the following:
Removing and Installing Ink Cartridges
Make sure you have your replacement cartridges handy before you begin. You must install new cartridges immediately after removing the old ones. Caution:

Leave your old cartridges in the printer until you are ready to replace them to prevent the print head nozzles from drying out. Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink. Cartridges are vacuum packed to maintain reliability.




  1. Make sure that the CD/DVD tray is not inserted for printing.


  2. Turn on your product.



    • If an ink cartridge is expended, you see a message on the LCD screen. Note which cartridges need to be replaced and press OK . Then select Yes, replace now and press OK .


    • If you are replacing a cartridge before you see a message on the LCD screen, press the left or right arrow buttons, select Setup > OK > Maintenance > OK > Ink Cartridge Replacement > OK . Then press the start_black_icon.jpg start button.




  3. Lift up the scanner unit.



    scanner_unit_open_xp600.jpg



    Caution:

    Do not move the print head by hand; otherwise, you may damage your product. Do not touch the flat white cable inside the printer.



  4. Push in the blue tab to unlock the ink cartridge you are replacing. Then lift the bottom of the ink cartridge to remove it.



    ink_cartridge_tab_push_xp600_800.jpg



    Warning: If ink gets on your skin, wash it thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets into your eyes, flush them immediately with water. If ink gets into your mouth, spit it out and see a doctor right away. Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children.



  5. Recap the used ink cartridge using the cap that came with it.



    ink_recap_xp600_800.jpg



    Note: Dispose of used cartridges carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.



  6. If you are replacing the Black (BK) ink cartridge, it is recommended that you shake the new cartridge gently four or five times before unwrapping it. You do not need to shake the Photo Black (PBK) cartridge or any of the other color ink cartridges.



    ink_shake_xp600_800.jpg



    Caution:

    Do not shake the cartridges after opening the packages, or ink may leak.



  7. Remove the cartridge from the package.



    ink_package_open_xp600_800.jpg



    Caution:

    Do not touch the areas shown above. Doing so may prevent normal operation and printing.



  8. Remove the cap from the cartridge and store it in the bag that came with your product for later use.



    ink_cap_remove_store_xp600_800.jpg



    Note: Save the cap so you can recap ink cartridges before storing or disposing of them.

    Caution:

    Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink will leak.



  9. Insert the ink cartridge head first into the ink cartridge holder. Then press the bottom of the ink cartridge down until it clicks into place.



    ink_cartridge_insert_xp600_800.jpg





  10. Once you replace all the cartridges that need replacing, close the scanner unit.



    ink_cartridge_scanner_unit_lower_xp600.jpg



    The product starts priming the ink. This takes a few minutes. When you see a completion message on the LCD screen, ink replacement is complete. Note: If you see an error screen telling you an ink cartridge is installed incorrectly, lift up the scanner unit and press the ink cartridge down until it clicks into place. When you\'re finished, close the scanner unit.



If you remove a low or expended ink cartridge, you cannot re-install and use the cartridge.

Caution:

If you remove an ink cartridge for later use, recap the ink cartridge using the cap that came with it to prevent the ink from drying out and to protect the surrounding area from getting smeared by ink. Store the ink cartridge in the same environment as the product. Do not leave the product with the ink cartridges removed for an extended period of time. Otherwise, ink remaining in the print head nozzles may dry out and you may not be able to print.

Colour ink cartridge not reconise. replace colour ink cartridge.cod 3603


To resolve the issue:
  1. Make sure you install the correct type of KODAK Ink Cartridge for your printer. Currently we offer two types of ink cartridges (10 Series and 30 Series). Installing the wrong type of ink cartridge may result in this error. You will need to install a new, correct type of KODAK Ink Cartridge.
    NOTE: For more information, see Which ink cartridges to buy for all-in-one printer.
  2. If you are using the correct type of KODAK Ink Cartridge, reinstall the color ink cartridge.
    1. Open the printer access door.
      NOTE: If the ink cartridges don't move to the center, see Printhead and ink cartridges don't move to center with access door open.
    2. Wait until the printhead is idle and silent, then pinch the latch on the color ink cartridge with your thumb and forefinger and lift it out of the printhead.
    3. Install the color ink cartridge back into the printer, making sure to press down on the thumb tab until it clicks into place.
    4. Close the printer access door. For printers with LCDs, follow the instructions on the LCD screen.
      For more information on installing ink cartridges, see the Extended User Guide for your printer. Review Maintaining Your Printer - Replacing ink cartridges.
  3. If the error continues, restart your printer:
    1. Turn off the printer by pressing the power button.
    2. Wait five seconds.
    3. Turn on the printer.
  4. If the error continues, and you have extra, new KODAK Ink Cartridges on-hand, try to install a new ink cartridge (or a set of new ink cartridges).
  5. If the error continues, contact us.
When the issue is resolved, we highly recommend that you upgrade the firmware for your printer for optimum performance:
  1. Locate and select the firmware for your printer.
  2. Follow the instructions to install the firmware.

How do i change my ink cartridges in my epson workforce 520 series 3 in 1 printer?


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 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
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.
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.
