Depending on your model of printer your ink cartridges has different ways of installing. Some just press straight in, and others you have to tip up slightly and press down. and of course you have to have the right cartridge. My printer for example uses two different black inks, one for pictures and one for print jobs, of course I can use either one for printing but they have different numbers. If someone helped you pick out your cartridge you might have gotten the wrong cartridge. Good Luck.

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

How to change ink in HP Deskjet F480 printer???


  • Check the ink levels by opening the HP Solution Center. Click on "Settings." Click on "Toolbox." Click on "Services." Click on "Service this device." Click on "Estimated Ink Levels." A graphic will appear showing the estimated ink level in each cartridge.
  • 2 Verify that the unit is on. Open the print cartridge door allowing the print carriage to move to the far right side of the unit. Once the print carriage has stopped, lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot. To replace the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. To replace the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right. Place the cartridge in a plastic bag as it may still contain some residual ink and may leak.
  • 3 Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging. Remove the plastic tape by using the pull tab, being careful to not touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink nozzles under tape.
  • 4 Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Gently push the upper part of the print cartridge until it clicks into place. The tri-color print cartridge fits into the left slot. The black or photo print cartridge fits into the right slot.
  • 5 Close the print cartridge door. If the print cartridge alignment sheet prints, load it on the left front corner of the scanner glass with the top of the page to the left. Verify that there is plain paper loaded in the input tray, and then press the "Scan" button to align the printer.

  • Step 3 Lift the gray plastic cover on the left. Remove the empty black #28 ink cartridge. Next, lift the purple plastic cover on the right and remove the empty color #29 ink cartridge.
  • Step 4 Remove the new black #28 ink refill cartridge from its packaging. Tear the protective strip of paper from the cartridge's sensor. Now, remove the new color #29 ink refill cartridge from its packaging and tear the protective strip of paper from the cartridge's sensor.
  • Step 5 Turn the cartridges so that you can read the label. This is the way the cartridges should face when being put into the printer.
  • Step 6 Slide the black #28 cartridge into the slot on the left side and push it down. Slide the color #29 cartridge into the slot on the right side and push down.
  • Step 7 Push the gray plastic cover down over the #28 cartridge until it clicks closed. Push the purple plastic cover down over the #29 cartridge until it clicks closed.

    I have a Brother MFC5460CN...I can't find the owners manual and I can't figure out where the ink cartridges are? I need to replace them


    I found this on the Web site. You can download the manual for yourself. Just click on the link below. If you find this information helpful, pls rate me.

    Replacing the ink cartridges B
    Your machine is equipped with an ink dot counter. The ink dot counter automatically
    monitors the level of ink in each of the 4 cartridges. When the machine detects an ink cartridge is running out of ink, the machine will tell you with a message on the LCD. The LCD will tell you which ink cartridge is low or needs replacing. Be sure to follow the LCD prompts to replace the ink cartridges in the correct order.
    Even though the machine tells you that an ink cartridge is empty, there will be a small amount of ink left in the ink cartridge. It is necessary to keep some ink in the ink cartridge to prevent air from drying out and damaging the print head assembly.
    a Open the ink cartridge cover. If one or more ink cartridges are empty,
    for example Black, the LCD shows Ink Empty Black and Replace Ink.
    b Pull the lock release lever down and take out the ink cartridge for the color
    shown on the LCD.

    C Open the new ink cartridge bag for the color shown on the LCD, and then take
    out the ink cartridge.
    d Remove the protective yellow cap (1). Each color has its own correct position.
    Insert the ink cartridge in the direction of the arrow on the label.
    f Lift each lock release lever and push it until it clicks, and then close the ink
    cartridge cover.
    G If you replaced an ink cartridge, the LCD
    may ask you to verify that it was a brand
    new one. (For example, Did You Change Blck?) For each
    new cartridge you installed, press 1 (Yes) to automatically reset the ink dot
    counter for that color. If the ink cartridge you installed is not a brand new one, be
    sure to press 2 (No). If you wait until the LCD shows
    Note
    If the LCD shows No Cartridge after
    you install the ink cartridges, check that
    the ink cartridges are installed properly.

    Using the Ink Cartridge Replacement utility in Windows

    1. Open the Printers window by following the appropriate steps for your operating system.

    In Windows 2000: Click START > SETTINGS > PRINTERS.

    In Windows XP: Click START > CONTROL PANEL > PRINTERS AND FAXES or PRINTERS AND OTHER HARDWARE. (Select VIEW INSTALLED PRINTERS under PRINTER TASKS if no printers appear.)

    In Windows Vista: Click START > CONTROL PANEL > HARDWARE AND SOUND > PRINTERS.

    2. Right-click your printer model and select PRINTING PREFERENCES.

    3. Click the MAINTENANCE tab.

    4. Click the Ink Cartridge Replacement utility icon and follow the on-screen instructions to replace your ink cartridges as necessary.

    Caution:
    Never turn off the printer while the On light is flashing or you’ll waste ink. If the ink light flashes, press the Stop button and press down all the cartridges securely.



    Using the control panel

    1. Turn on the printer.

    2. Open the scanner and make sure its support locks in place.

    3. Press the STOP button. The print head moves to the ink mark to indicate which cartridge is low or expended.

    4. Press the STOP button again.

    If another cartridge is low or expended, it moves to the ink mark. Press the Stop button again to see if more cartridges are low or expended.

    If no other cartridges are low or expended, the print head moves to the replacement position on the right.

    5. Open the cartridge cover.

    6. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift the cartridge straight up to remove it. Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.

    7. Before opening the new cartridge package, shake it four or five times.

    8. Remove the cartridge from the package, but be careful not to touch the green chip on the cartridge.

    9. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the cartridge.

    Caution:
    Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink will leak.

    10. Insert the new cartridge into the holder and push it down until it clicks into place.

    11. Once you replace all the necessary cartridges, close the cartridge cover and push it down until it clicks into place.

    12. Release the scanner support and close the scanner.

    13. Press the Stop button to begin charging the ink. This takes about 1 1/2 minutes.
    When the On light stops flashing and remains on, ink charging is finished.

    Caution:
    Never turn off the printer while the On light is flashing or you’ll waste ink. If the ink light flashes, press the Stop button and press down all the cartridges securely.
