    i have exactly the same problem! i've tried playing around with the cover itself and also putting the power off and on again, but neither worked.

    Same issue... I have to assume its a sensor that is bad or broken somewhere. 1st print cartridge change too! I'll keep tinkering and let you know if I find a solution.

I changed my ink but it wont let me print it keeps saying i need to change my ink why?


What is the version of your ink cartridge? It could be that it's not seated properly in the cartridge carrier. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet in the wall to reset it. When the printer turns on, open the printer cover and reinsert one cartridge first. Close the cover. If no error, open the printer cover and reinsert the other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear. You could also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.

Do not know how to change ink cartridge x2650


Lift the scanner unit, and then press down on the cartridge carrier latch to raise the cartridge carrier lid. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the printer is busy.

Remove the used print cartridge. Insert your new cartridges.

Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't automatically move to its loading position even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Follow the steps below:


1. Unplug the printer from the power source.

2. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip that connects from the carrier assembly to the ink cartridge carrier and gently slide the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer.

3. Remove the used cartridges.

4. Load the new cartridges. Close the cover.

5. Plug the printer back to the power source.

Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid that covers the print-head mechanism.
