Replacing the print cartridges
Turn on the HP PSC and lower the print-carriage access door.
The print carriage will move into the access area.
Figure 1: Opening the print-carriage access door
After the carriage stops moving, push down on the top of the print cartridge to release it, and then pull it toward you out of the slot.
NOTE: The black cartridge is on the right side of the print carriage.
Figure 2: Removing the print cartridge
NOTE: It is normal to see ink buildup in the print cartridge slots.
Remove the new print cartridge from the packaging and gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.
CAUTION: Do not touch the copper contacts or ink nozzles. Install the cartridge immediately upon removing the tape to prevent ink from drying in the nozzles.
Figure 3: Removing the plastic tape
Push the new print cartridge into the appropriate slot at a slight angle, until it clicks into place.
CAUTION: Do not attempt to push the cartridge straight into the slot. It must slide in at a slight angle.

Using a photo print cartridge
To use the photo print cartridge, remove the black print cartridge and insert the photo print cartridge in its place.
The photo print cartridge can be purchased separately and will optimize the quality of printed photos.
With the tri-color print cartridge and photo print cartridge installed, you have a six-ink system, which provides enhanced quality photos. For printing regular text documents, use the black print cartridge.
Use a print cartridge protector to keep either print cartridge secure when it is not being used.
