Epson printers come in a variety of styles and options. I personally have the Epson All-in-one printer, scanner, copier so I will help you replace the ink cartridge.

First you should make sure you get the correct ink refills. You can order them online, or pick them up at your local office supply store.

Step 2

Go into you MY COMPUTER icon on your desktop, click on change a setting, click printers and fax, and then right click on your epson printer. Go into properties, then maintenace.
