Normally, the Cartridge ( or Carriage ) should come in center when you open the front access door.

If this does not happen, turn off the printer, Open the front access door and move the carriage manually to center to remove the cartridges, later power on the unit and you should be able to find the cartridges move to center for replacement.

To change the cartridge open the printer's front cover when it is ON. After opening the carriage will move to the central location on the chrome bar. Wait for approx. 30 seconds and switch off the power to the printer. Now replace the empty cartridge with a new one.

How does one change an ink cartridge? On my computer the cartridge container doesn't come to and stay at center position?

You didn't specify which type of printer you have. Is there another door that opens and gives access to the cartridges? If not, let us know what kind of printer you have. Good luck!

I have epson 880 printer. The cartridge lights are NOT on but I want to change the cartridges anyway since the pages come out blank . How do I that?

If the cartridges are empty, the printer logic should have stopped you from sending data to the printer. If the ink has dried out because low usage, then you might be able to save the cartridges by using a slightly damp cloth to clean the nozzles on the existing cartridges.

Most inkjets have you raise the center cover with the power on. This brings the cartridge carrier to the center so you can access the ink cartridges.

Let me know if you need additional help. Blank pages are not always caused by ink problems.
