1. Make sure that the printer is on. The power light should be on, but not flashing.

2. Lower the output tray, then open the printer cover.

3. Press the ink button. The print head moves to the ink cartridge replacement position, the power light begins to flash, and the ink out light corresponding to the ink cartridge that needs to be replaced begins to flash or remains on.

Note:
- Do not press the ink button for more than three seconds. The print head cleaning command will be initiated if the ink button is pressed for more than three seconds.

4. Open the cartridge cover. Pinch the sides of the ink cartridge that you want to replace. Lift the cartridge out of the printer and dispose of it properly. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.

Caution:
- If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets into your eyes, flush them immediately with water. If discomfort or vision problems remain after a thorough flushing, see a doctor immediately.

Note:
- For best results, shake the new ink cartridge four or five times before opening the package
- Do not shake the ink cartridge after removing from the bag; this can cause leakage.

5. Remove the new ink cartridge from its protective bag. Place the ink cartridge vertically into the cartridge holder. Then, push the ink cartridge down until it clicks into place. Do not apply excessive force to the cartridge.

Cautiuon:
- Do not remove or tear the label on the cartridge; otherwise, ink will leak.
- Do not touch the green IC chip on the side of the cartridge. This can damage the ink cartridge.
- If an ink cartridge should be removed temporarily from the printer, be sure to protect the ink supply area of the ink cartridge from dirt and dust. Store the ink cartridge in the same environment as the printer. When storing the cartridge, be sure that it stands as shown in the illustration below (the label that identifies the color of the ink cartridge should be displayed on the top of the cartridge). The valve in the ink supply port is designed to contain any excess ink that may be released. However, careful handling is recommended. Do not touch the supply port of the ink cartridge or its surrounding area.
- Be sure to always install an ink cartridge into the printer immediately following the removal of an old ink cartridge. Failure to promptly install the ink cartridge may cause the print head to dry out and render it unable to function properly.

6. When you are finished replacing the cartridge, close the cartridge cover and the printer cover.

7. Press the ink button. The printer moves the print head and begins charging the ink delivery system. The ink lights start flashing. This process takes about one minute to complete. When the ink charging process is finished, the printer returns the print head to its home position. The power light will stop flashing and remain on, and the ink out light will turn off.

Caution:
- The power light will continue to flash while the printer is charging ink. Never turn off the printer while this light is flashing.

Note:
-If the ink end error occurs after the print head moves to its home position, the ink cartridge may not be installed properly. Press the ink button again, and reinstall the ink cartridge until it clicks into place.

1) Looking at the front of the printer/scanner there is an indent on the left hand.

2) Lifting up on this portion should reveal the inside of the printer.

DO NOT touch the flat cable inside the printer, DO NOT force the lid, it should open easily.

3) The ink cartridge is underneath the plastic cover in the back right-hand side of the printer. Gently pull up on the cover until it swings open.

4) pinch the clips holding the ink cartridge in the printer and pull up.

5) Unpack the new ink cartridge.

6) Remove the tape that is on the ink cartridge.

(If you forget this step the printer won't print. If that happens, remove the new cartridge, remove the tape and then reinsert the cartridge)

7) Insert the ink cartridge and push gently until it clicks into place.

8) Close the cover over the ink cartridges, and then close the printer cover.

9) Follow any direction on the front display (hit OK)

Epson TX650 cannot recognize ink after changing Cradle


Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can
also be poor ink cartridge contacts

Need to change ink cartridge


First you must identify which model Epson printer you have by going here.

You can either select your printer from the list, or enter the model number.

Once you have found your printer, it will tell you the model ink cartridges it requires, and even where to buy them.

We will need to know the model number of the Epson printer to be able to assist with the actual process of installation, as it can vary between printers.

Highly possible that the "compatable" cartridges are not really compatable or that Epson has updated software or firmware to keep them from working. Try replacing with Epson cartridges or see if the non-OEM brand seller has a resetting device so the printer sees those cartridges as full.
