Lift the whole top section up (from under the scanner bed) and the ink cartridges will move to the centre allowing you to lift the plastic clip up and remove and replace the cartridge. DO NOt try and drag the cartridges to the right place. It should do it automatically provided the cartridges need changing. Good luck

    Switch on, wait for it to settle, open it, if any activity wait for it to settle again, press stop button and the head will move (probably to left of centre), wait for it to settle again then press stop button again and it should move to the correct position for changing cartridges.
    The "official" instructions were very misleading.

SOURCE: remove ink cartridge

There should be a procedure for changing the cartridge and checking the manual indicates this routine:

1. Open the printer lid to give you access to the printer insides.
2. Press the "Stop" button (a picture of an reversed triangle in a circle)
3. Wait for the cartridge carriage to move into the replacement position.
4. Replace cartridges
5. Close printer lid
6. Press the "Stop" button again.

If that doesn't work you can always start the printer, wait until you hear the sound of it starting to move, pull the power cord on the back of the printer and then open it up. Hopefully the carriage should be in a position where you can move it and get to the cartridges to replace them.

I wouldn't recommend the latter approach unless you can't get the main routine to work correctly.

SOURCE: Ink cartridges not working in epson sx100 all in one printer

Make sure that you have removed the tape on each cartridge.
make sure the cartridges are for your model printer as they are not all the same.
The cartridges could be bad since they are remanufactured, you can go back to the place you bought them and see if they will replace the cartridges for you or you can look online for a cheaper price like

Ive changed ink cartridges and still ink light is flashing and not printing

Chances are you are either;
1. using an "expired" ink cartridge. or

2. the Chip on the ink cartridge is erased and will not work.

Many re fillers do not reset the chip after refilling them.

This is Epson's way of saying "I do not like compatible, refilled cartridges...I hope this helps, Happy Holidays...Steve at TakeCharge ReCharge

How do I replace a nearly done black cartridge in my Epson SX100 it is hard to read the print

To change an empty ink cartridge on the Epson Stylus SX100, make sure that the printer is plugged in and turned on. Next lift the entire scanner unit (pull up from the center); make sure that the document cover is closed. The support arm should engage. Next press Stop (above the Copy button). The ink cartridge carrier should move so that the (first) empty cartridge moves to the spot with the droplet with a slash through it symbol. Press the tabs on the front and back of this cartridge and pull it straight up. Shake the new cartridge while it is still in the package. Then remove it from the packaging and remove the yellow tape without touching other parts of the cartridge. Slide this cartridge into the open slot and press down until you hear a click. Press Stop to advance the carrier to bring the next empty ink cartridge into the empty cartridge position. When done, lift up on the scanner unit and disengage the support arm by pushing it in towards the printer. Then lower the scanner unit. Press Stop again to get the printer to run through the maintenance step.

If you want to change the ink before the printer indicates it is out, you need to open the Epson Status monitor software. With a Windows OS, go to the Maintenance tab and find the Ink Replacement utility. Launch the utility and follow the on-screen directions and open the printer, as above. It this software isn't installed, then you need to check if the software is available for your OS. Install the software, if it is available. Please add a comment with the OS on the computer connected to the SX100 for more information.

I hope this helps.

Need to get ink cartridges out of my epson stylus SX100 how do i do this

Turn printer on and print something. When the printhead/cartridges are out in the centre, switch off at power point or pull the plug out. You can then move the printhead by hand and remove/replace the cartridges.
Then just connect the power cord or turn the power back on.

Epsom sx100 keeps saying cartridges are not compatatble but are using epsom inks

If you have Genuine Epson cartridges and they do not work, call Epson Tech Support. You have to be patient [they're in India] and you may have to ask to speak to someone in the US if you're getting nowhere with TS.
