1. Check to make sure you have the correct cartridge.
Not a 27 from lexmark instead of a 27 from hp
or visa versa for example.

2. Typically Printer cartridges do not "drop in" but are
held in a more secure fashion such that at the very
least it will "snap in place". Sometimes this means
placing the cartridge in its receiver and pushing it left,
right, back, etc. until you hear the "click". Do not
strong arm or use excessive force as this may break
either the cartridge and/or its receiver.

3. Make sure the tape covering the print head on new
cartridges has been removed.

4. Ensure there are no obstructions in the cartridge receiver.

5. Print head should typically be facing the platen where the paper rolls.

Cyan ink discharge at the back of the ink crtrige.

The leak is from the cyan ink cartridge or from the connections in the ink tube system. Replace the ink cartridge first. If that does not fix the problem, replace the ink tube system.

Only black cartridge empty, but 3 full color crtrige say empty

Remove the color cartridges. On one end you can see the opaque
ink tank inside the main cart. housing. Cut a piece of black electrical
tape to fit around the three sides visible of the ink tank. Make sure the tape fits inside the housing and adheres to the tank itself. This makes the printer think your ink is always full but you can always tell when you need to refill/replace the ink(right?). Good Luck!

Cartridges not moving

Sounds like a corrupt driver, uninstall your printer (Start> Printers and Faxes on right column), select your printer icon, right click>Delete. Disconnect your printer and re install drivers first, then reconnect printer when prompted. If still not performing correctly suspect printer head carrier fault.
