Replacing Epson WF-4835 Cartridges

The Ultimate Guide to Replacing Epson WF-4835 Cartridges

This guide equips you with everything you need to know about replacing ink cartridges for your Epson WF-4835 printer, ensuring smooth and high-quality printing.

Understanding Epson WF-4835 Cartridges

Epson WF-4835 printers utilise either original Epson cartridges or compatible cartridges produced by other manufacturers. While both options have their merits, the choice depends on your needs and preferences.

Signs Your Ink Needs Replacing

Your printer will typically display error messages or symbols on the screen when ink levels get low. Replacing cartridges promptly helps avoid printing problems like faded or smudged outputs.

Preparing for Replacement

Before diving in, ensure you have the correct cartridges. The WF-4835 uses either Epson 812 or 812XL cartridges. Opting for XL cartridges offers a more economical choice for frequent printers due to their larger ink capacity.

Installing New Cartridges

Replacing cartridges is a simple process, but proper handling is crucial:

  1. Locate the “Maintenance” option on your WF-4835’s LCD touchscreen.
  2. Scroll down and select “Ink Cartridge Replacement.”
  3. Choose “Start.”
  4. Lift the scanner unit to access the cartridges. The carriage will move to the replacement position.
  5. Once it stops, carefully remove the used cartridge and replace it with a new Epson 812 cartridge.
  6. Close the scanner unit. The printer will initialise the new cartridge and prepare it for printing.
Maintaining Your Printer’s Ink System

Proper care of your printer’s ink system extends the lifespan of your cartridges and optimizes print quality. Here are some tips:

  • Regular cleaning: Following the manufacturer’s instructions, clean your printer regularly to prevent clogs and leaks that can affect printing performance.
  • Cartridge handling: Handle cartridges with care to avoid damaging them or causing leaks.
  • Genuine Epson cartridges: Using genuine Epson cartridges safeguards your print head and ensures exceptional print quality every time. While compatible inks might be cheaper, they can clog the print head and potentially damage your printer.


Replacing Epson WF-4835 cartridges is a straight forward task with proper preparation and maintenance practices. By following these guidelines, you can ensure your printer delivers optimal printing results while maximising the life of your cartridges.
