I am trying to change the black cartridge on an Epson Stylus C48 printer. I lift the printer flap and usually the cartridges slide out from the right hand side but today they are remaining hidden! I think...


The cartridges should slide though they are not empty as usual. Try the proper method few more times. Failing that, switch off the printer & lightly pull the cartridges & replace the needed one. Shout the printer cover and then power on. The cartridges will goto the correct position.

Photo 1290 Changing ink cartridge


Hi there,

You may have to reset your printer, for when the green an red are flashing. Please do the following in order to reset the printer;
1-switch off printer itself
2-switch off at socket for 20 seconds
3-hold down both black buttons on front
switch on at mains
4-switch on printer itself
green and red flash together
5-now switch off at mains and leave for 3 seconds
6-while holding down both front buttons again, switch on at mains
both green and red flash together so release
7-quickly hold down the left botton, the one with the scroll icon above it.

Hold this until it resets itself, - the print head will re
charge and it will be obvious.

Restting by unpluggin rather than turning off at mains tends not to work.

This must help you as it worked for me.

Regards,

Red and green lights are flashing alternatively and colour ink cartridge has run out. How do i change the cartridge?


Flashing alternately mean waste pad full. Reset using SSC utility or Adjusment program/resetter. But, you must replace cartridge before. Turn off printer, unlock carriage lock (left side of carriage at parking position). Move carriage by hand to replacement position. Replace ink tank. Reset using the resetter.

The red light is blinking and it doesn't print.


There are actually some certain meaning on the red light and green light showing different information to user. The summaries are:
1) Green On, Red Off = Printer Ready.
2) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Fast-Flashing = Printer warm up.
3) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Off = Printer off-line.
4) Green Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Processing Data.
5) Green Off, Red On = Cover Opened, Toner Empty or Developer Unit / Drum unit missing.
6) Green Off, Red Fast-Flashing = Paper Jam or waiting for jam reset.
7) Green Off, Red Slow-Flashing = Paper Empty or Paper tray is not inserted.
8) Green Off, Red Off = Printer power is off.
9) Green Very-Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Printer in sleep mode.
10) Green (any condition above), Red Slow-Flashing = Toner low or paper empty.

So what is your printer condition? Better know what is going on your printer so can solve the problem.

The printer will not work. The green bottom


The Print Cartridge Status light flashes when one or both of the print cartridges is improperly installed or malfunctioning.

1. Open the printer's top cover.
2. Remove and re insert both the black and colour print cartridges and try printing again.

If the problem persists then you need to replace either the black or the colour print cartridge.

The green flashing light lets you know that the machine is recieving data. This is completely normal, however, the red (Attention) light can mean several things. There can be a door open, missing toner cartridge, out of paper, or paper jam. In this cause it is probably the toner cartridge. Typically on these machines there is an Orange or Green tab on the side of the toner cartridge that needs to be pulled to fully engage the cartridge. You may want to make sure this has been pulled and the cartridge has been properly seated.

Hope this helps...let me know if you need any further assistance

Black Cartridge needs replacement but new cartridge.


Just reset the toner cartridge and the machine will se it a new one. Remeber though it may now actually run out of blsack when the machine thinks it is part full. This will give quality issues when it runs low. If you are not sure on resetting the cart, let me know.
