Help. i replaced the colour cartridge in my epson stylus c42 plus printer, but forgot ot take of the protective strip first! How do i get the cartridge to return to the middle of the print bar so that i can access the cartridge?

open a document, and then click on print, as the cartridge moves out to the centre, remove the power plug from printer.

Fix the prob. and then plug back in, all will be ok, you will not damage, or alter your printer settings by doing this.

You should have an HTML reference manual on your hard disk (or on the installation CD). This tells you how to replace ink cartridges using the buttons on the printer. At least it does on my stylus C80. Look to see if you have two buttons on the left of the power button. The ink button will move the carriage to the correct position for removing the cartridges.

Hi, Hold down the Paper/ink button for 3 seconds with the power on the printer of course, and the carriage will come across to the middle. Cheers, Bill
