Replace Ink Cartridges

Replace Ink Cartridges
Your Epson printer and its software will let you know when an ink cartridge is low or expended.
If an ink cartridge is expended, you see a message on your printer’s LCD display screen; you must replace it to be able to print.
Warning:
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children and do not drink the ink.
Note:
You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not expended. Replace any expended cartridges before printing or copying. You can still scan and view photos on the LCD display screen.

With Windows, when black ink is low and there is more color ink than black ink, you will see a message when your print from your computer. You can select to save black ink by using a mixture of colors to create black. The message only appears if you select Plain Paper/Bright White Paper as the paper Type and Text as the Quality Option setting.
When an installed ink cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it if your printouts do not look their best, even after cleaning and aligning the print head.
