#1 Wait until you are out of ink. The warning light and ink-low notifications come on well before the ink cartridge is empty, and even if it runs out of ink in the middle of a print, you can replace it then and finish the print with no problem. #2 Lift the lid of your Epson inkjet printer to expose the ink cartridge replacement button. Make sure you have plenty of light so you can see what you are doing. #3 Press the ink cartridge replacement button. This will loosen the empty ink cartridges so they can be pulled up and out. #4 Fill the empty cartridge at an ink-refilling location, or buy a new ink cartridge to replace the empty one. #5 Insert the new or refilled ink cartridge into the holder with the same orientation as the previous one. #6 Press the cartridge replacement button to charge the system and close the printer cover. Charging takes about one minute
Are you positive it says the yellow cart is empty? Because that brother printer is designed to say that a cartridge is empty whenever ANY of the color cartridges are empty. Usually it doesn't tell you which one is really empty either. So even if you replaced the yellow cartridge and say, the black cartridge is empty, it still won't let you print until you replace that empty black cartridge, nor will you know which of the cartridges is empty unless you pull them out of the printer and manually check the ink levels.
Its pretty much a guessing game with those old brother ink printers.
Hi, If you go to your printer properties, there should be a setting whereby you have to select the option to "PRINT USING BLACK CARTRIDGE ONLY". Make sure this option is selected, otherwise your printer will use ALL colors even if you only print black. Let me know if you need any further assistance. Best wishes, Graemevm
