Genenrally, you'd lift a cover and if it is an inkjet type printer, you'd just pop it out or lift a small cover and then pop it out. Look on the inside of the printer's cover, there ususally are picture demostrating how to do it.

For specific instructions, I'd need a full model number found on a label on the back of the printer.

HP photosmart B210 wont print black

Seems to be a common problem - I had it too. I spent a lot of time looking, but never quite found a consistent fix. I fixed mine in a few steps: First, I removed all the cartridges, and cleaned the filters on the top of the printhead (these are the little screens you see when you look at the tray with the cartridges removed). To do this I blotted each screen with premoistened alcohol wipes, changing wipes frequently, until the wipes were clean. I then removed the printhead by lifting the black handle on the right side, and lifting the printhead straight up. I used alcohol pads on the rear contacts (refer to HP's instructions for changing printheads) in a downward motion only. Finally, I cleaned

Where is the asborber and how do i empty it

Even though you believe ink is still in the cartridge, your printer may not be able to sense this ink and may erroneously report that the cartridge is spent. If you receive this warning, remove the cartridge, turn off the printer and unplug it from the electricity. Wait 10 minutes. Restore the power and reinstall the cartridge as if it were brand-new. In many cases, the last bit of ink can be accessed after all--at least enough to produce a few more pages before the warning reappears.

I have the cartridge but how do I take the empty one out.

The manual will detail the steps to remove a spent cartridge. There are buttons to push to make the cartridge carriage position itself to be able to remove the cartridge. I believe it is in the maintenance section of the menu.

Printer cartridge

Try celaning the cartridge contacts as shown here (for a different cartrdige, but same principle). If this does not fix the problem you will need to contact your dealer of the edible ink cartridges for warranty replacement.

Print Cartridge Detected is the Wrong Type - error message!

It sounds like the contacts on the cartridge sensor need cleaning.

First remove the cartridge, paper and feed tray. Use compressed air such as "DustFree" or other brand of "canned air" to blow all of the dust and toner out of the cartridge well and paper path. Then, using a lint-free dry cloth, clean the metallic contacts where they mate with the contacts on the cartridge. Just gently rub them off to remove any dust and toner residue. Do not use any liquids or chemicals on the lint-free cloth. If you do not have a lint-free cloth, you may use a clean (read new) rubber pencil eraser. After using the lint-free cloth or pencil eraser, spray the contacts again with canned air.

Reinstall the cartridge and paper and verify that the printer returns to the ready state. If it does not, you need a certified HP technician.

Refilling black cartridge

The printer will never do that, once the cartridge is spent a little divine device inside tells the printer it's been used and spent. You can still print to from the cartridge but it wont warn you when your low on ink, price you pay for not buying a new cartridge.
