Cannot open the printer cover to replace ink cartridges

I had a very frustrating problem with my printer - I think actually a firmware bug from Epson. It would go back and forth between saying Replace Ink Cartridges and another error about invalid ink cartridge detected. There is a lock where you cannot open the top unless it gets out of this state but it was stuck in that state.

There is a small square on the display side of the scanner glass one for each side lock to open the panel. Visit https://printerdeets.com for more in-depth printing guides.

Best answer is by Karen Jaggi below-- make sure to lift not just the lid to the scanner, but the ENTIRE TOP of the printer that exposes the innards. (There are two levels of being able to lift the top.) THEN you can open the lid to the ink cartridges easily and get the business taken care of. Great printer, but a quirky thing to have happen when you're trying to do a simple refill. Refill is easy after you figure this little problem out. This worked for printer ET-3760.

Karen Jaggi saved my sanity. Epson own video does not show that.

Thanks much.

And here is the answer that even Epson support didn't know (they claimed it was a HW issue which it was not). There is a small rectangular slot on the front right of the cover. Gently push a screwdriver or the point of a scissor down into that and it releases the top!

I was then able to replace the ink cartridges and all was well again.

Outrageous design fault. How can companies like this put out such rubbish

still cant open it

where exactly is the slot? Don't see anything to the right of the ink hatch cover. I can lift the right side of the cover but the left side is locked down tight. Don't want to break it, though people have said they've forced it open

Whew! I was so close to finding a hammer. But I just bought this dumb thing! Thank you Robin McCabe!

It was so simple I had to record it here, for you, my Boomer friends (and me in case I forget.) INSTRUCTIONS: So… the cover needs to be CLOSED then lift the second cover to expose internal workings of printer. Then “gentle as butter” just flip up that %#*@ ink cartridge lid.

I swear, when I watched the Epson video and they started with an OPEN PRINTER I briefly hated them. I fiddled around with firm pressing and such, never a good idea when dealing with plastic, and then, just wanted to smack my printer. grrrrrrrr. NOT INTUITIVE for those of us who don’t care how a toaster is made, just how it works. I demand a video redo from #EPSON.

I have to add I LOVE this printer. Ink lasts a long time and I’m thrilled not to have to use those awful cartridges.

Oh my gosh!!!!!! I have just tried to figure this out for the last hour! Your answer was the ONLY one that solved my problem. The Epson instructional video is completely wrong. Thank you for your help!

Thanks. Thanks. Thanks.

Thank you so much!!! I have killed an entire evening on this. Every demonstration starts with the lid open. This has been one of the most maddening devices I have ever owned. As soon as the pandemic is over, I am going to Costco to get another HP!!!

Thanks! .......from a Boomer:)

Thanks Karen for the good clear instructions! EPSON --- Just lift the lid that shows the internal workings of printer. Please change your instructions!!!!

You have to tell the printer that you want to replace the cartridge using the menu on the touch screen. From the home screen, select Settings, Maintenance, Ink Cartridge(s) Replacement. Follow the directions on the screen. The printer will move the carriage to the position where you will be able to lift up the lid and replace the cartridge. Close it back up again, then let the printer go through its routine, and you'll be good to go.

Thank you. Seems like a lot of steps for something so basic and critical to normal functioning

Just replaced the ink cartridge and now Lid is locked up and will not close. How frustrating. Does this lid staying open like this damage the ink cartridges. Dry them out or something? Help

Any luck getting it closed? Mine is doing the exact same thing

After much poking and prodding, I realized the ink cartridge holder wasn't all the way over to the right. Once I pushed it a little bit it seemed to lock in. Lid went down easily then.
