Open the printer cover>press the button with the ink logo/picture and the carriage will move to the middle and stop. Open the cover of the releveant ink you want to change and remove it. remove the strip with the arrow on the new cartride (should tell you how to do this on the box or foil wrapper), and gently push the new catridge back in place. Close the ink cover then close the printer cover then press the ink logo again. This should send the carriage back to the right hand side. Some models then automatically send out a test page.

I hope this helps

Printer software will not install

Hello Sir,

Plz follow this step

  • Step 1 Power up the printer. Plug the power cord into the back of the printer and press the power button one time to turn the printer on. If the printer does not respond, make sure that the power cord is completely plugged into the printer and the power outlet.
  • Step 2 Insert inkjet print cartridges. If you have an inkjet printermag-glass_10x10.gif, unwrap the print cartridges that came with your printer and securely fasten them in the printer cartridge carriage inside the printer. How to insert the inkjet cartridges will vary depending on the model of your Lexmark printer. Regardless of the model, you should not manually drag the print cartridge carriage over to install the cartridges. All inkjet models have a carriage that automatically moves to allow you easy access for installing cartridges. Be sure that the ink cartridges are firmly secured in the carriage before using the printer.
  • Step 3 Plug the USB cable into the printer. Plug the type B connector end (the smaller square-shaped end) of the USB cable into the designated port on the printer. Do not plug the USB into the computer until prompted to do so by the installation CD.
  • Step 4 Insert and run the installation CD. Most computers will run the setup program automatically after you insert the CD. If your computer does not automatically do this, select your CD drive and explore the contents of the CD. Double-click the "setup.exe" file. Follow the instructions the installation program provides.
  • Step 5 Print a test page. After you have completed installing the software for your printer, you will have the option to print a test page. This will confirm whether your installation and setup was successful. Be sure that you have loaded paper into the appropriate tray before printing a test page

    Won't print

    Turn the printer off.
    Wait 20 seconds.
    Turn the printer on.
    Lift the cover -- hopefully, the print-head will move to the position where the cartridges can be accessed.
    Remove one cartridge.
    Re-insert that cartridge.
    Close the lid.
    If you still get the "blinking", re-open the lid, remove the other cartridge, and re-insert that cartridge.

    Otherwise, see: and enter your model-number, and download the manual (PDF) and follow its directions, or read the online-help for your specific PIXMA.

    Continually says align print cartridges

    My guess is that the color cartridge is either defective or not inserted correctly. I have a 6110 and know that inserting a print cartridge is a little tricky. If it isn't completely inserted and the top latch fastened correctly, the cartridge either won't work or produce errors.

    Try reseating the color cartridge so it's inserted in exactly the same way as the black cartridge and run a print job again.

    Open the following web page and go to Step three to see the instructions for cleaning the electronic contacts on the cartridge and print carriage.

    Ink Cartridge Alignment Fails

    Those seem the most likely causes and solutions to me. Good luck.
