How do I replace an ink cartridge?
- Make sure the printer is on but not printing. Raise the printer cover, then press down the orange ink cartridge replacement button until the print heads move to the left. Pull up the empty ink cartridge clamp all the way. The cartridge rises up from its holder and should be disposed. Don't touch the green circuit board on the back of the new cartridge; you may inhibit normal operation and printing. Remove the yellow tape seal from the ink cartridge. Do not remove the blue label from the top of the ink cartridge or the clear seal underneath the cartridge. The ink in a cartridge missing the seals will be exposed to air and will thicken such that print head clogging and possible print head failure can occur. To install the new cartridge, tilt the ink cartridge forward slightly as you lower it into its holder. Hang the tabs at the back of the cartridge on the hooks on the holder clamps. Don't place the cartridge tabs under the hooks on the holder clamp; you may damage the clamp when you close it. Install the ink cartridge and press the orange ink cartridge replacement button to begin charging the ink delivery system. Charging takes about a minute and is complete when the power light stops flashing. Caution: If the blue label has been removed from the ink cartridge, do not install the cartridge. If you have already installed it, even if the printer is printing correctly, change the cartridge immediately. If you have already installed the cartridge and now the nozzle check will not print completely even after running a few cleaning cycles, the printer may need service and you should contact Epson Technical Support for assistance.
