Checking Ink Levels

The printer's control panel lights will inform you when it is time to obtain a replacement ink cartridge and when it is time to replace an empty cartridge.

If you need to replace an ink cartridge when the black and color lights are off, see Replacing an Old Ink Cartridge.

This table describes the status of the ink out lights and the actions you need to take.

Lights Action

Obtain a replacement black ink cartridge (S020187).

Replace the empty black ink cartridge.

Obtain a replacement color ink cartridge (S020191 for EPSON Stylus Color 440/660, or S020193 for EPSON Stylus Photo 750).

Replace the empty color ink cartridge.


To ensure good results, use genuine EPSON ink cartridges and do not refill them. Other products may cause damage to your printer not covered by EPSON's warranty.
Leave the old cartridge installed in the printer until you have obtained a replacement. Otherwise, ink remaining in the print head nozzles may dry out.
You cannot continue printing with one ink cartridge empty, even if the other cartridge still contains ink. Before printing, replace the empty cartridge.
In addition to the ink used during document printing, ink is used during print head cleaning and during the self cleaning cycle which is performed when the printer is turned on.


Once you have determined you need to install an ink cartridge, see Replacing Low or Empty Ink Cartridges for directions.
