    Hello Pompom1,

    Thank you for you question.

    I certainly have a solution that you will benefit from with regards to the difficulties you are experiencing with replacing the ink cartridges.

    There is a new range of ECO printers that are 3in1 printers from Epson. These printers no longer have ink cartridges and no have ink tanks built into them. The ink in these tanks lasts for 2 years and can be easily replaced when they become low.

    To simply replace the ink, there is a compartment that easily removes from the printer, and you then fill the tanks up with ink which you ill be able to buy in small bottles. Having to use a bottle to fill the tanks up with ink should ease your difficulties with trying to access the old ink cartridges which are hidden away.

    Here is the link for the new printers and it is currently £230 for the average size home printer from Epson directly:

    Please do shop around for this device as prices may vary in other UK retailers.

    I hope this helps you and feel free to comment if you require anymore advice or solutions.

    Regards Ryan.
