You will need a syringe no smaller than 20ml.

Remove the cartridges from the machine.

Holding them upside down, place the syringe in the hole.

Tilt the syringe slightly and drawback in an attempt to create a vacuum and pull the syringe out.
You only need a slight vacuum.

If air returns to the cartridge through the other hole (the one with the little white thing sticking out from the middle), then the cartridge maybe no good, although you could try using pliers to pull that stick out slightly and holding it for a bit to try and correct its position and hold a seal, but this is generally a temporary fix.

Now once again insert the syringe into the appropriate hole and attempt to create a vacuum then pull the syringe out.

Place the cartridges back in the machine and they should be ok.

I need step by step instructions showing how to change an ink cartridge on and Epson NX110 printer


If the printer is out of ink in one or more cartridges (the ink light is steady), then with the printer on, lift the scanner unit and use the support to prop it up. Press the Stop button and the (first) empty cartridge will line up with the No Ink symbol on the printer. Press Stop again and the next empty cartridge will be moved to this symbol. Continue to press Stop until the cartridge carrier moves to the ink replacement position (depends on how many cartridges are empty). This is on the right side of the printer. Wait for the cartridge carrier to stop moving. Do not touch the white cable while changing the ink.

Next remove the first ink cartridge by pressing the two tabs towards the center of cartridge and pulling it straight up. (One tab is close to you and the other is closest to the printer.) Take your new cartridge for the slot and shake it four or five times. Then remove the cartridge from the package. Do not touch the green chip. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the cartridge. Next rotate the cartridge so that the nozzle is down and facing towards the inside of the printer. Then push it straight down into the slot until it snaps into place. Repeat these steps for the rest of the empty cartridges.

Once all of the empty cartridges have been replaced, lift the scanner unit and push the support to fold it. Close the scanner unit. Press Stop to start charging the ink system. Wait until the Power light stops flashing and remains on before turning off the printer or sending a print job to the unit.

If the Ink light continues to flash, open the scanner unit and press Stop. Press down on the cartridges to make sure that they are completely seated in the cartridge carrier.

If the ink out light is flashing or not lit, you need to use the Epson Utility to change the ink. This is part of the full software from Epson. For Windows right click on the printer icon in the taskbar (bottom right of the screen). Then select Printer Settings and click on the Maintenance tab. For a Mac, open the Applications folder and open Epson Printer Utility 3. Select your printer (if you have several Epson printers listed). Then click OK. (You will need to launch the utility before you open the scanner unit.)

The documentation for the Epson NX110 is available here: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@1663277658.1305218830@@@@&BV_EngineID=cceeadfdielfldicfngcfkmdhjidfmh.0&cookies=no&infoType=Doc&oid=128284&prodoid=63084353 .

I hope this helps.

My machine is printing but there is nothing printed on the paper when it comes out and all ink is new


First make sure you have removed any packing tape from ink cartridge.
Second look into ink cartridge slot on printer and make sure nothing is blocking installation of ink cartridge.

Be aware that your Brother machine is designed to stop ALL printing operations when any of the ink cartridges are empty.

My printer always shows E22..wht the meaning that! how to solution...


The E 22 error code is a carriage error, which means there is something wrong in the cartridge area. To fix this error, turn off the printer and unplug it. Remove all of the ink cartridges and check for signs of leaking or damage. Now look closely inside the cartridge slots for dried up ink and use a tiny bit of alcohol on a QTIP to clean the ink off the slot. Reinsert the cartridges and plug the printer back in and turn it on. The error code will disappear

How do I change the ink cartridge in a Lexmark x2330


  • Turn the Lexmark printer on by pressing the power button. Usually, the power button is located on top of the Lexmark printer. If the Lexmark printer does not power on immediately, then hold the button down for a few seconds before releasing it. Once the Lexmark printer has powered on, the installed cartridges will begin to move back and forth for a few minutes.

  • 2

    Raise the Lexmark printer cover up towards you. Doing this will give you instant access to the inside components of the Lexmark printer. Lift the cartridge release lever and remove any installed ink cartridges. Be careful when doing this because the ink may leak out. It's best to have a disposable bag or paper towel near you when performing these steps.

  • 3

    Remove the plastic from the brand new cartridges by carefully cutting them open with scissors or tearing along the perforated edges. Once you have removed the plastic, there's a yellow tag located near the bottom of the ink cartridge. Take this tag off only when you're ready to insert the ink cartridges into the slots.

  • 4

    Tear the yellow tag from the ink cartridges and place them into their corresponding slots. Each one will be easily identified by its color. The cartridge release lever will have the same color as the ink cartridge. If you mistakenly place the cartridges in the wrong slot, then you'll risk having your Lexmark printer stop working properly.

  • 5

    Press the ink cartridges into the slots and listen for a clicking noise after the insertion. Although you will need to firmly place the ink cartridges into the available slots, it still needs to be done gently. Close the Lexmark printer cover when you've completed the previous steps. Wait a few minutes for the Lexmark printer to recognize that you have inserted brand new ink cartridges. After a few seconds, it will go through some diagnostic steps to make sure the ink cartridges were correctly inserted.

  • 6

    Print a test page on your Lexmark printer. This will help you to determine if the ink cartridges are properly working. You can view the newly printed images and text after the Lexmark printer has finished printing. Get rid of your used ink cartridges by throwing them away or sending them to an online store that accepts empty ink cartridges.

    How to change ink in HP Deskjet F480 printer???


  • Check the ink levels by opening the HP Solution Center. Click on "Settings." Click on "Toolbox." Click on "Services." Click on "Service this device." Click on "Estimated Ink Levels." A graphic will appear showing the estimated ink level in each cartridge.
  • 2 Verify that the unit is on. Open the print cartridge door allowing the print carriage to move to the far right side of the unit. Once the print carriage has stopped, lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot. To replace the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. To replace the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right. Place the cartridge in a plastic bag as it may still contain some residual ink and may leak.
  • 3 Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging. Remove the plastic tape by using the pull tab, being careful to not touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink nozzles under tape.
  • 4 Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Gently push the upper part of the print cartridge until it clicks into place. The tri-color print cartridge fits into the left slot. The black or photo print cartridge fits into the right slot.
  • 5 Close the print cartridge door. If the print cartridge alignment sheet prints, load it on the left front corner of the scanner glass with the top of the page to the left. Verify that there is plain paper loaded in the input tray, and then press the "Scan" button to align the printer.
