I have changed out my black ink cartridge and now it says Attention: Print head loose, missing or not installed correctly.


Had exactly the same issue - working fine until ink cartridge changed (kodak for kodak - not a copy). Then can only get 'print head error message'.
Multiple attempts to remove and re-install, power on/off etc. but can't shift the error message. New print head more expensive than a new printer!

My printer is not recognising the replacement ink cartridge although I've used these before many times


If you have just installed a new cartridge and you still see an ink related error, the cartridge may be incorrectly installed. Follow these steps to make sure the cartridges are correctly installed:

  1. Make sure the Epson Stylus is turned on.


  2. Do one of the following:

    • If your printer indicates that an ink cartridge is expended, press OK.


    • If your printer does not indicate that any ink cartridge is expended, press Setup, select Maintenace, and press OK. Then select Change Ink Cartridge and press OK.
  3. Open the scanner.


  4. Open the cartridge cover.

    Caution:

    Never attempt to open the cartridge cover while the print head is moving; wait until the cartridges have moved to the replacement position.

    To avoid damaging the Epson Stylus, never move the print head by hand.


  5. Press down all the ink cartridges until they click into place to make sure they are properly seated.

    Note:

    If a cartridge is properly seated already, you may not hear a click.


  6. Close the cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place.


  7. Close the scanner.


  8. Press OK to begin charging the ink. This takes about 2 minutes.

    You see a message on the display screen when ink charging is finished.

    Caution:

    Never turn off the Epson Stylus while the ink is charging or you'll waste ink.
If the issue persists, it appears to be an issue with the cartridge(s). Contact Epson for further assistance.

Remove and Install Cartridges
Be sure you have your replacement cartridges handy before you begin. You must install new cartridges immediately after removing the old ones.Caution: not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink. Cartridges are vacuum packed to maintain reliability.
1.
Turn on your Epson printer.
2.
If a cartridge is expended, you see a message on the printer’s LCD display screen. The icon on the screen indicates which color to replace. Press or OK (NX410 Series).

If you’re replacing a cartridge before you see a message on the printer’s LCD display screen, do one of the following:
to select Ink Cartridge Replacement, then press Start.
NX410 Series: Press Setup, press or to select Maintenance, and press OK. Then select Change Ink Cartridge and press OK.
Your printer model may vary from the ones shown in this section, but the procedures are the same.
Do not open the ink cartridge cover while the print head is moving.

How do you change the black cartridge in the printer epson stylus nx115


Here is the Link showing instructions below. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/nx110_/nx110_ug/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm

Replace Ink Cartridges
Your Epson Stylus NX110 Series and its software will let you know when an ink cartridge is low or expended.
If ink is low, the ink light flashes. You can continue printing until a cartridge needs replacement.
If a cartridge is expended, the ink light stays on. You must replace the cartridge to be able to print.

Warning:
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children and do not drink the ink.
Note:
If you need to change a cartridge before it or any other cartridges are low or expended, run the Ink Cartridge Replacement utility.

You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not expended. Replace any expended cartridges before printing or copying.

Leave your old cartridges in the Epson Stylus NX110 Series until you are ready to
replace them to prevent the print head nozzles from drying out.
When an installed ink cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it if your printouts do not look their best, even after cleaning and aligning the print head.
Follow the instructions in these sections to check and replace your ink cartridges:
Check Cartridge Status
Purchase Epson Cartridges
Replace Cartridges Using a Printer Software Utility
Remove and Install Cartridges

pls rate me. Thanks and Good Luck...

    Ink has run out message


    Ink not made for your printer has risks. 20 years as Canon rep taught me this. Yields: are affected by resolution, type of paper, condition of print head, condition of ink jets, all ink jets and lasers are mfg'd under lisence to Canon. You have the best! Anytime supplies are cheaper, something is left out. used cartridges usualy leak air and drip ink ck for stains under print head. cartridge has used blotter also drips. Cheaper cartridges contain less ink, no free lunch. Fill it yourself 1 or 2 times and do it right. Put the printer in your shower for twenty minutes if you see excess leaked ink. Allow to air dry for a few days then install new cartridges. Run all the Nozzle checks and print head utilities. Touch nothing else on the inside. This will fix it or f@#%k it up for good

    Epson stylus photo 1290 'bk ink cartridge not installed properly'


    Ameter:
    Remove the black ink cartridge.
    Check the place where the new cartridge should go. Check for a round small piece like a bushing or a little piece of pipe, stuck at the ink entrance of the printing head. This is a piece from the old cartridge, that sometimes gets loose and remains in place,and when the new one is placed, it doesnot go down to the right place to make contact with the electric connectors in the printing head.
    If nothing solves...reinstall the printer drivers.
    Good luck and Merry Christmas
