Question about Canon PIXMA MP240 All-In-One InkJet Printer
For most inkjets, first make sure that the printer is powered and turned on. Then lift up the entire scanner unit until it locks in place (lift it at the center of the scanner unit). Wait for the ink carrier to come to a stop where you can reach it. The cartridges are inside a protective cover that you need to lift up. Squeeze the tabs together on each cover then lift. (One is at the very front of the cartridge carrier; the other is a little bit farther towards the center of the printer.) Note: do one ink cartridge at a time. Pull the used cartridge out towards you and up. Open and remove the protective film from your new cartridge. Avoid touching the electrical contacts or ink nozzles. Slide the new cartridge forward and down into the slot. Close the cover by pushing it down until it clicks. Then do the other cartridge if needed. Black goes in the right hand slot. Make sure that the covers are properly closed.

Lift up the scanner unit and then lower it down to close. Wait for the printer to clean the new nozzles and remove any air from the ink system.
