The print head needs to be released. One solution that worked for me was to: unplug the power source, hold down the left arrow key and the transfer key together. Plug the power cord back in. Hold keys down for 10 seconds or longer then release. This is supposed to release the print heads and allow the cartridge to pop out when releasing the little green tab that holds the cartridge in. The key is you have to release the print head if you try prying or forcing you can possibly damage the printer beyond repair.

I have a hp psc 1209 all in one printer and it will pick up paper and sound like its printing but when the paper is ejected its blank

Hey Janet,
Sorry but sometimes we miss something simple - I am not familiar with this particular printer, but had to find out if it is an ink jet or a toner cartridge unit - With ink cartridges, has the printhead still got ink?, has the printhead part that sprays ink, gotten plugged up with dried ink?(Remove it and soak it in some hot water for 5 min or so and wipe with a lint free cloth in one direction only, to clean it, then reinstall it and try a test pring again), or lastly, did you change the cartridge and forget to remove the protective tab, it might be like a piece of tape or an actual removable plastic cover?

How do I change ink cartridges onEpson Stylus SX425W printer. Apart from lifting the scanner I cant see any buttons to press and the present cartridges wont move along to enable me to eject the black one.

Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid that covers the print-head mechanism.
In a few seconds, the print-heads will slide to a position where the ink-cartridge can be removed.
Then, "unlock" the ink-cartridge from its socket, and gently remove it.
Replace it.
Then, "lock" the ink-cartridge into place, and close the lid.
Print a test-page.

How do u change ink cart

The process of changing ink cartridges varies slightly by the make and model of your printer. Open the cover to the area where your cartridges are installed while your printer is turned on. If opening the cover automatically prompts the inks cartridges to move and center in a position where they are accessible, then all you have to do is remove and reinstall new ones. If the cartridges do not automatically move and center themselves where they can be changed, then your printer requires an additional command that you do manually to make this happen. Some printers require the user to push the power button down and hold it for 10 seconds to have the machine move and center the cartridges in a position that can be reached easily by your fingers. Some even have an extra button to push that has a little picture of an ink drop next to it which brings the cartridges forward for replacement. If you cannot reach the cartridges easily, or opening the cover does not automatically move and center them then check your manual for the procedure or repost your question inlcuding the make and model number so that we can locate this information for you.

Lets move forward.

Once the cartridges are in an area that is easily reachable, the next step is to eject the cartridge which needs to be changed. This procedure can also vary by make and model. Look at your cartridges and check for a plastic ejection lever in front that can be pushed down by a finger tip. If you see one, push downward and see if the cartridges is ejected outward towards you. If it is ejected, then replace with new cartridge and push downward to lock it into place and your done. If there is no plastic ejection lever in front of the carriage which holds your cartridges, then place one finger on top of the cartridge you wish to remove and push downward slightly and pull it towards you until it unlocks and releases it. Then remove and replace and push down and forward to lock the new one by into place and your done.

I can give you specific instructions pertaining to your make and model printer if you supply this information on the website. Good luck!

Changed cartridge--now paper gets stops by cartridge carrier. turned on and off, reinstalled cartridge, cleaned roller.

Press the OK button.
- If paper is being fed at error occurrence, the
error is indicated after the paper is ejected.
- If the error occurs, the print head alignment
values are not changed.
- After exit from the error by the OK button,
the automatic print head alignment will not
be re-done.
The error will occur when the print head
alignment pattern is not printed due to no ink
or non-ejection of ink.

I need to replace the color ink in my Epson stylus color 740

To force a Cartridge change press and hold down the Paper feed (load eject) button for over 5 seconds and the cartridges will move into a change position. Please note: if the cartridges move to a position where only the Black cartridge can be changed pressing the Paper feed button once will move the head so that the colour can be changed.

Before changing the carts it is recommended that you run the head cleaning utility.

When you have poor print quality and have tried the head cleaning utility it is recommended that you replace the cartridges. Ift the red lights aren't on to indicate the ink is out you need to force the cartridges into a change position. To do this press and hold down the paper feed button (load eject) for over 5 seconds and the cartridges will move into a change position. Please note: if the cartridges move to a position where only the Black cartridge can be changed pressing the Paper feed button once will move the head so that the colour can be changed.

Ink cartridge

the lid has an ejection arm on it. Try working the lid up and down to dislodge the cartridge. If this doesn't work try rocking the cartridge left and right and walking it out the the slot.
