How do I install a new ink cartridge?

  • Remove the yellow tape seal from the top of the ink cartridge. Do not remove the white label from the top of the ink cartridge. The ink in a cartridge missing the white label will be exposed to air and will thicken such that print head clogging and possible print head failure can occur. If the white label has been removed from the ink cartridge, the cartridge will not function correctly and it will need to be replaced. More importantly, to avoid potential damage to the printer, do not install the cartridge if the white label has been removed. With the printer on, hold the Alt button for three seconds. The print head should move to the left and the power light should begin to flash. Insert the Ink cartridge into the printer. Lower the ink cartridge clamp, pushing down on the clamp until it locks into place. Next, press the Alt button. The pause light will continue to flash as the printer charges the ink delivery system. When the printer is done charging, the pause light will stop flashing. If you are still having difficulties, contact the EPSON Connection End User Technical Support Group for further assistance.
