Epson 702 Cartridge Specs

The Epson 702 cartridge series are available in two sizes, a standard yield or high yield or XL size.  Original Epson high yield cartridges are slightly more expensive than the standard yield since they are filled with more ink, but they end up offering a better overall value if you print frequently.  The related Workforce printers require four individual ink cartridges (black / cyan / magenta / yellow) and the cartridges are filled with pigment-based ink, which offers a quicker dry-time and can resist fading.

Epson 702 Cartridge Installation Steps

First, take the new cartridge out of the box and remove the plastic wrap.  We recommend doing this over a trash can, as some ink may escape from the cartridge.

Gently remove the yellow tab on the side of the cartridge and discard it.  Removing this will expose the vent hole on the cartridge so it can function properly in your printer.

While you are preparing the cartridge, try to avoid touching the gold contact points.  If fingerprint oil or residue gets on these contacts you may get a faulty reading in your printer.  You can clean the contact points with a lint-free cloth.

A message will appear on your printer’s display if a cartridge needs to be replaced.  To start the replacement process, select “Next”.

Then select “Yes, replace cartridge now”.

Select “Next”.

Then, open up the top scanner to reveal the printer cartridges.

Wait for the cartridges to center, then gently pull up on the spent cartridge to remove it from the printer.  You might need to wiggle the cartridge to get it out of the printer.

Then, slide the new cartridge into that empty slot.

Press down on the cartridge so it clicks into place.

Select “Complete”.

A confirmation message will appear on your printer’s display.  Select “OK” and you can start printing with your new cartridge!
