forcing cartridge change in c42

  rioboy 14:18 20 Apr 2003

Trying to help a pal with a printer problem, I'd like to change the colour cartridge even though it's showing full. Does anyone know how to do this on an Epson C42?

Sorry it's a C40 not 42!!

Thanks Huggyg71 but I've already been on the Epson site and looked through the manual but I can't find out how to change the cartridge when it's NOT empty. Unless I've missed something obvious (highly likely!) the link you sent me shows how to change a cartridge that is low/empty.At the moment when I try pressing the maintenance button the cartridge will not go to the correct position. It just charges the ink and then returns to the far left position.

Try switching the printer of when it's in the middle
