Hi-

If pressing ink button wont position printhead where you can change the ink, its a hardware failure that you are having. Call Epson and have it replaced. 562-276-1300

Cannot tell which inkjet color cartridge needs changing


Disregard the monitor information and rely on the printer.

On the left panel of the printer are your indicator lights and buttons. Push the button immediately to the left of the 'ink drop' light [looks like a little tear drop]. Open the cover and the printhead assembly will move to the left and stop. Look very closely and find that little 'ink drop' imprinted into the plastic in the very middle of the printer where the printhead assembly stopped. That 'ink drop' will line up wih the ink cartridge that needs replacing. Push that button on the left again and the printhead assembly will either return to the 'replace' position, or move to the next ink cartridge that needs replacing. Keep pushing that button just once at a time until the printhead assembly identifies all cartridges that need replacing and moves into the 'replace' position. This 'replace' position will be on the right side of the printer where the opening occurs that allows the top cover of the printhead assembly to open.

Change the appropriate cartridges and you should be good to go.

The print heads will now move to the replacement position. If they do not move to a change position press the Red ink button on the printer.

  • Lift up the ink cartridge clamps.

    Before you open the new ink cartridge package, shake it four or five times. Then remove it from the package.

    Do not touch the green chip
    on the side of the cartridge. This can damage the ink cartridge.

    157f94d.jpg
    Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the ink cartridge.

    3400723.jpg
    You must remove the yellow tape from the cartridge before installing it; otherwise, print quality may decline or you may not be able to print.

    If you have installed an ink cartridge without removing the yellow tape, take the cartridge out of the product remove the yellow tape, and then reinstall it.

    Do not remove the transparent seal from the bottom of the cartridge or the label on the cartridge; otherwise the cartridge may become unusable or ink will leak.

    Place the ink cartridge into the cartridge holder with the bottom down. Then push down the ink cartridge until it clicks into place.
    38585f1.jpg
    Repeat steps 4 to 6 for each ink cartridge.


  • Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place
  • 5ee2013.jpg
      If you find it difficult to close the cartridge cover, make sure all the cartridges are firmly seated. Press down on each cartridge until you hear it click into place. Do not attempt to force the cover closed.

    1. Close the printer cover and press the ink or start button to begin charging the system. Charging can take up to three minutes and is complete when the power light stops flashing.
    While the ink system is charging do not switch off the printer.

    There could be 4 possibilities.

    1. Ink cartridges lids are open which is not allowing cartridges to move freely.
    2. Ink cartridges carriage will not move from its original position(left) when front cover is opened
    3. Encoder strip is Dirty.
    4. Encoder strip is Out of position.

    Solution:
    1. Open the front cover and check if ink cartridges lids are properly snapped in.

    2. Turn the printer off and pull out the power cable from power socket, open the front cover and manually center the ink cartridges carriage.
    Clean the metallic rod inside the printer using WD40 or Kleenex from Left corner to right corner properly.

    3. Cleaning the encoder strip:
    a. printer should be off and disconnected from power.
    b. open the front cover.
    c. Using a dry, lint free cloth, pinch the encoder strip on the right-hand side of the cartridge carriage and pull your fingers across it toward the right-hand side of the printer and you can move the cartridges carriage to clean the strip completely.
    d. Note: The encoder strip is a narrow band of clear plastic and can be difficult to see without direct lighting running parallel to metallic rod.
    e. Close the printer and try again to print.

    4. Repositioning the Encoder strip.
    a. Remove the power cord from the printer.
    b. Open the front cover.
    c. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.
    d. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right.
    e. Using an index finger, gently push encoder strip down and then back up, to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.
    f. Gently press the strip first to the rear, and then forward, to ensure that it is seated correctly.
    g. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right, to check the positioning of the encoder strip.
    h. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the scanner lid.
    i. Re-connect the power cord to the printer and try again to print.
