Using the Ink Cartridge Replacement utility in Windows

1. Open the Printers window by following the appropriate steps for your operating system.

In Windows 2000: Click START > SETTINGS > PRINTERS.

In Windows XP: Click START > CONTROL PANEL > PRINTERS AND FAXES or PRINTERS AND OTHER HARDWARE. (Select VIEW INSTALLED PRINTERS under PRINTER TASKS if no printers appear.)

In Windows Vista: Click START > CONTROL PANEL > HARDWARE AND SOUND > PRINTERS.

2. Right-click your printer model and select PRINTING PREFERENCES.

3. Click the MAINTENANCE tab.

4. Click the Ink Cartridge Replacement utility icon and follow the on-screen instructions to replace your ink cartridges as necessary.

Caution:
Never turn off the printer while the On light is flashing or you’ll waste ink. If the ink light flashes, press the Stop button and press down all the cartridges securely.



Using the control panel

1. Turn on the printer.

2. Open the scanner and make sure its support locks in place.

3. Press the STOP button. The print head moves to the ink mark to indicate which cartridge is low or expended.

4. Press the STOP button again.

If another cartridge is low or expended, it moves to the ink mark. Press the Stop button again to see if more cartridges are low or expended.

If no other cartridges are low or expended, the print head moves to the replacement position on the right.

5. Open the cartridge cover.

6. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift the cartridge straight up to remove it. Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.

7. Before opening the new cartridge package, shake it four or five times.

8. Remove the cartridge from the package, but be careful not to touch the green chip on the cartridge.

9. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the cartridge.

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

10. Insert the new cartridge into the holder and push it down until it clicks into place.

11. Once you replace all the necessary cartridges, close the cartridge cover and push it down until it clicks into place.

12. Release the scanner support and close the scanner.

13. Press the Stop button to begin charging the ink. This takes about 1 1/2 minutes.
When the On light stops flashing and remains on, ink charging is finished.

Caution:
Never turn off the printer while the On light is flashing or you’ll waste ink. If the ink light flashes, press the Stop button and press down all the cartridges securely.

Finding how to replace cartridge Epson DX4450


Removal and replacement is pretty straightforward but I know how some instructions and pictures are not clear. So this is what you need to do. Power off the printer and lift the lid up so that you can see the ink cartridges. You can put your fingers on them and move the ink cartridge carrier to the center so that you can reach them easily. If you will look at your new ink cartridge you can see how they have to set in the carriage. There is a small tab that you click up to release and bring the old ink cartridge up enough where you just pick up out of there. By looking at your old one you will see how the new one just falls into place and clicks in. Some printers do not have a small tab that you click up and for those you just grab the ink cartridge from both sides with your fingers and pull up. It will come right out and the new one will click into place as well. Be sure to take off any stickers that protect the ink cartridge before you place them in.

Epsom dx4450 how to change ink cartridge


Replacing the cartridge:

1. Make sure the printer is on and open the printer cover
2. Make sure the printer is paused and the output tray at the front of the printer is lowered
3. Hold down the cleaning button for three seconds until the print head moves slightly to the cartridge replacement position, and the power light flashes when the print head is in position. Do not move the print head by hand, it will be damaged
4. Lift up the clamp that holds the cartridge you want to replace as far as it will go.
5. The cartridge will rise partly out of the cartridge holder. For black ink replacement, lift up only the smaller clamp on the left.
6. Lift the cartridge out of the printer and dispose of it properly.
7. Remove the cartridge from its protecting bag. Remove only the yellow tape seal from the cartridge. The yellow tape seal must be removed. Leaving the tape on when you install the cartridge will permanently damage it. Do not remove the tape seal from the bottom of the cartridge.Otherwise ink will leak.
8. Lower the ink cartridge into the cartridge holder with the label on the cartridge face up and the arrow on the cartridge pointing to the rear of the printer.
9. Press the ink cartridge clamp down until it locks in place. Do not press the cartridge itself.
10. Press the cleaning button. The printer moves the print head and begins charging the ink delivery system. This process may take a few minutes to complete. The power light continues to flash while the printer performs the ink charging operation.
11. Never turn off the printer while this light is flashing. Doing so can result in incomplete charging of ink. Even if you do not press the cleaning button, the printer moves the print head and begins the ink charging process about 60 seconds after you replace the ink cartridge.
12. When the ink charging procedure is finished, close the printer cover.

Error message - no ink


Hi Maria,

Try removing all of the ink cartridges again. Open the cover and remove all of the inks. Close the cover and turn the printer off. Leave it off for about 30 to 45 secs. Turn it back on. Install again the ink cartridges. Check if it will charge after closing the cover.

If it still says that ink need replacement, check your lcd panel. Usually it will tell you what ink cartridge needs replacement. This might be a faulty ink cartridge.

What about it? Huh? Give us a clue will ya? You want to know how to do it? When to do it? Or are you telling us you are doing it?

Put some detail in your posts please. And why post it under a generic problem for all printers. It's fairly obvious your problem relates to an Epson DX4450

press 'Control' + 'P' on a page (as tho you want to print)
click 'Maintenance'
there you'll find various options to clean heads etc, that should do it. tho it does deplete your inks considerably each attempt. & you'll probably find it needs more than one clean.Good luck!

Epsom R200 COPY INK DOESNT WORK


There is no solution, I have tried this myself, there are compatible inks for this product, you just got the wrong ones, However it may only be down to one of the inks, check the ink levels before removing, if all empty, then they are not compatible.
