How to Install Epson Ink Cartridges

Whether you use your Epson inkjet printer for home, work or school, eventually you will need to replace the ink cartridges. Many new Epson printers come with half-size cartridges, meaning these cartridges contain only half the ink of a normal cartridge. This holds down the price of the printer, but it also means that you will have to replace the cartridges in your new printer rather quickly. Learning to change the ink cartridges in your Epson printer is important, as is keeping a spare set of replacement cartridges on hand.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Lift the top cover on your Epson printer and wait for the print cartridges to move to the centre. Check the part number printed on the cartridge and verify that the replacement cartridge you intend to install is the correct one for your Epson printer model.

  2. 2

    Remove the replacement cartridge from the box and take off the tape used to protect the cartridge in transit. Make sure all packaging materials are removed from the replacement cartridge.

  3. 3

    Hold the new inkjet cartridge with the gold metal connector pointing down. Line the connector up with the print cartridge holder inside the printer and push down until the cartridge snaps into place.

  4. 4

    Wipe up any ink that spills on the printer case or surrounding work surface using a soft cloth.

  5. 5

    Close the top cover of the Epson printer and send a test page to the printer. If the paper comes out blank, remove the cartridge and check for any packing materials you missed.
