Problem after installing cartridges

I activated the maint. menu and the printer heads centered as always to remove the old cartridge. I may have moved the carriage a little, now the carriage is on the far right and the machine clicks for several seconds and the three leds stay lit and the screen is blank.

What do I need to do when I install new ink cartridges to get the printer to stop showing that the ink is low or out ?

You will need to reset the software in most cases as the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.

How do I install the ink cartridge

You will find two buttons on your printer.

One for power and the another is a function button.

Push them together at the same time while the printer is on.
In most cases this will move the ink head to the center on the machine in order for you to remove the old ink cartridges and install the new ones. However a different button may need to be used consult the manual in this regard.

The ink cartridges are clipped in, you will need to undo the clip!
Then pull the ink cartridge out, usually upward force applies.

Now once the old cartridges are removed you can install the new cartridges.

Be sure to remove any stickers that are meant to be removed, read the sticker and if it says "remove before use" then remove it.

Insert the cartridge and push them down, then the clip is to be clipped in.

Now to get the ink head to move back to it's lair first try pushing the function button.
If nothing happens then push both buttons together again.

Please read this session a number of times to get the jist of what needs to be done.

Also I would like to ask you to please rate this session with the use of the Thumbs on the right.

Thanking you very much.
Till next time!

  2. If you are installing new ink cartridges, remove the sticker and transparent tape from the back and bottom of each ink cartridge.

NOTE: You can use your printer with one cartridge (color or black) at a time. To extend the life of your color cartridge and improve printing speed, install both a color cartridge and a black cartridge at the same time.
  1. Insert the new ink cartridges. Make sure the color ink cartridge is secure in the left ink cartridge carrier and the black ink cartridge is secure in the right ink cartridge carrier.

  1. Snap each lid closed.

Problem installing an ink catridge

Most HP printers will move the print heads to the center of the printer when you open the front.

Each cartridge has a flip that you can flip up. The cartridge can then be removed by tilting it toward you. You can install a new cartridge by removing it from the box and foil liner. You then remove a strip that protects the head. Like you took out the old cartridge, tilt the cartridge and straighten it up. Flip the flip down. Close the top. You should be ready to go after the heads clean themselves and do an alignment.

If the printing is not satisfactory, you can go to your programs and hp will have a tool to perform alignment.

You can use HP cartridges, refilled cartridges or fill cartridges yourself (depends).

I've filled cartridges with success. However, it can be a bit messy.
