Putting in the ink cartridge


This may sound pretty pathetic, but I just bought my JX500 today and I've been trying to put in the ink cartridge. I can't see quite how to do it, there appears to be nothing to attach it to, despite the diagram indicating so. Could someone please give some specifics on how to do it?

Thank you very much

It is a little hard for words to be easier to follow than pictures, but I will try to help. The connection is not as "concrete" as you might be accustomed to with other equipment, a there is not a box-like holder to place the cartridge in. Below, the "head" of the cartridge is the end with the ink openings.

When you lift the printer cover and it locks into place, the cartridge holder will move to the far left side of the printer. The cartridge fits into the right side of the cartridge holder, and what you probably see in the diagram as a holder is actually a depiction of where the cartridge will end up when it is properly positioned. It actually attaches at the back - along the back side (the head) for the ink nozzles, and at the top of the back to a small piece that juts out and has a V-like projection downward that snaps onto the cartridge and holds it in place.

When you have taken the tape off, hold the cartridge with the head tilted slightlty upward, at about a 20 degree angle. (Be careful NOT to put the cartridge in with the head downward.) Using your left hand, your thumb would be just under the front outer edge (facing you), and your index finger on top. Slide it in slowly on the right side of the holder until the head comes in contact with the strip for the nozzles. At this point, the top should also be contacting the top piece referred to above, just behind the V-like downward projection.

Move your index finger to the top of the machine just above the back of the cartridge area, and use your thumb to lift the front (the side facing you) up until it clicks. You should feel/hear it snap into place. Then you can proceed to close the cover and go on with your use/setup of the machine. Hopefully this explanation will help you enough to be able to understand how to get the cartridge in, especially with the pictures to supplement.

I have an HP 2140 fax purchased one year ago. I have never replaced the catridge and have used the fax about once a month. Today I am trying to copy and it won't print. I cleaned the nozzle and still...

New cartridge wouldnt print but sounded like it was printing. You can check ink levels clean or align cartridge by pushing menu then tools. I cleaned contact points w qtip and alcohol. What seemed to work is putting alcohol on cartridge where ink is released and putting back into machine wet did this three times first time little dots of ink then a faint print and now it is printing must have been dried ink further then I could access.

I bought a ink cartridge for my dell 942 printer. The box at staples says its for a 942 (it's the "offical" dell ink) but when I try to install it, it won't "snap" into place.

compare your old 942 cartridge with the one you just bought, if they're the same type then try putting the cartridge again, make sure that you have taken out the sticker on the cartridge copper contacts then put it in the right way. otherwise, have the cartridge replaced by the store you bought it from or contact Dell tech support and have them do the replacement.

Epson cx8400 can`t recognise the ink cartridge!!!

If you mean you have a chip resetter and have reset the chip when you say you've "shock the ink cartridge" then it sounds like the chip on the cartridge is damaged and can no longer be reset. To fix the problem you either need to get a replacement chip or a new cartridge.

Problem with new ink cartridge

More that likely the refilled ink cartridges are faulty and should be replaced. While some folks have pretty good luck with refilled cartridges, it is generally better to stick with the new ones.

As to the problem with old cartridges, keep in mind that the estimated ink levels are just that - estimates. However, if your printer has an option for cleaning the cartridges, try that before chunking them. Take them out, put them back in, and run the cleaning process. Sometimes the nozzles can get clogged up and running the cleaning process will clear them up. ( DO NOT TRY TO CLEAN THE CARTRIDGES MANUALLY!)

If none of this helps, you will more than likely just need to get some new cartridges. - Graye

C60 says full cartridge is dry

You could try taking out the new ink and putting in the old. Then uninstall the program, delete all reference to Epson in Regedit, then reinstall the program.
Change the cartridge when prompted.
Of course, having messed about with the jet, it may not work now !

Will not print

Try using the 'clean cartridge' setting with your printer, this usually forces the ink through the installed cartridges.

Good luck!
