How to Replace Cartridge(s)

  1. Turn your printer on and open its cover.
  2. Press and release the ink button. This will trigger the print head to move to the left, with the cartridge that needs replacing stopping under the ink out mark. If all cartridges need replacing, the entire carriage will move to the rightmost part (the ink cartridge replacement position). At this point, the power light should start flashing.
  3. Press the ink button again. Then, open the cartridge cover.
  4. Squeeze the back tab of the old cartridge and lift it out of the printer.
  5. Shake your new cartridge four or five times before taking it out of its bag.
  6. Unwrap your new cartridge and place it in its corresponding slot in the holder. Push down gently.
  7. Close the cartridge cover and the printer’s cover.
  8. Press the ink button again and the printer will start charging the ink delivery system for about half a minute. When done right, the green power light will stay on and the red light goes out.


Frequently Asked Questions


How do I find out which ink needs replacing?

If you notice the red ink light flashing, one or more of your ink cartridges need replacing. If the red ink light stays on, you only need to replace one cartridge. To find out which color ink needs to be changed, print a page and your screen will tell you which cartridge is running low or empty.


What does “high-yield” mean?

A high-yield ink, like our Epson 43 (T043120) Black High-Yield Remanufactured Ink Cartridge, means it can print higher volumes of output (up to 950 pages). With this, you won’t need to replace it as often as standard-sized inks. Do take note that images and texts on the paper, as well as your printer’s setting, will affect the approximated yield number.


I’m running low on ink and I need my products soon. When can I expect my cartridges?

Carrot Ink offers same-day shipping for most orders if you place your order by 3PM Pacific Time (except on Fridays, weekends, and holidays). This would, of course, depend on our current inventory and the delivery method you chose. You can then expect your product anywhere between one to eight business days.
