Installed new ink cartridges, cannot get it to print.

Customer Question
Installed new ink cartridges...

Installed new ink cartridges, cannot get it to print.

Technician's Assistant: What's the model of your printer?

XP_340

Technician's Assistant: Are you getting any error messages? Are you able to open the lid that covers the cartridges on your printer?

Yes, the lid can be opened. After installing the new cartridges, I get an error message, need to use EPSON cartridges. They are. Ordered them online.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

How do I get the cartridges to move to where I can see if they are completely seated in the right position? Afraid to stick my hand in there.

Hello!

Thank you for your question. I amCustomerand I look forward to helping you with your issue today.

Make sure that you are using exact model, and original cartridges. Then, try the following and let me know the response.

Remove all the ink cartridges from the machine.

Then clean the contacts on the cartridges as well as inside the machine itself. Inside means the printhead where the cartrdige seats.

Do this with a small amount of warm water on a cotton swab until no ink comes off on the swab.

If any of the cartridges are low, empty, leaking or bulging replace them.

Then turn off the machine and unplug it for 5 minutes.

Plug it back it and wait for the insert cartridges message. When inserting the cartridges back, make sure you insert the black cartridge first.

Insert the cartridges and check to see if the problem is still there.

If the issue persists, or you have any questions, please be back and let me know.

If you appreciate my service, please rate it EXCELLENT by clicking the EXCELLENT (5 Stars) and Submit.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions. Thank you for your business!

Thank you!
