Introduction This document explains the basics of installing or replacing the print cartridges. It is for a 5940 which is the same printer design, yours may look a bit different but I copied this from HP at the section for your printer so follow the instructions and you should be okay.
Insert the print cartridges
NOTE: The printer shown below is the HP Deskjet 5940 series printer. Your printer might look slightly different.

  1. Turn the printer on. The cartridge cradle will not move if the power is not on.
  2. Open the printer cover. Figure 1: Open the cover i need step by step - c00393707.gif
  3. Wait until the print cartridge cradle moves to the right side of the printer and is idle and quiet.
  4. If you are replacing a print cartridge, press down on the print cartridge to be replaced, and then slide it out of the print cartridge cradle. If you are installing print cartridges for the first time, go to the next step.
  5. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and carefully remove the plastic tape. Hold the print cartridge so that the copper strips are on the bottom and facing toward the printer. Figure 2: Remove tape c00393708.gif 1 - Protective tape CAUTION: Do not touch the print cartridge ink nozzles or copper contacts. Touching these parts will result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections. Do not remove the copper strips. They are required electrical contacts.
  6. Slide the print cartridge at a slight upward angle into the cradle until the cartridge snaps into place. Figure 3: Install the print cartridge c00393709.gif
  7. Repeat steps 3-4 for the remaining print cartridge.
  8. Close the printer cover. The printer automatically prints a calibration page.

PRINTER 5440, POOR PRINT QUALITTY HAS GONE FROM GREAT TO BARELY LEGIBLE, FAIRLY NEW CARTRIGAGES


Depending on the age of the printer, the service staion may need to be cleaned. The service station is where the cartridges "park" when they are not in use. Over time ink can collect in this area and therefore the ink cartridges do not get a thorough cleaning. I would go to HP's website and look for cleaning instructions for your printer model. Hope this helps

Unplug the power and replug it .
Make sure you removed the protection tape from the cartridge.

HP deskjet printer compatible ink cartridges


They will not work. Although they may look similiar and may even fit into the cartridge holder. The internal circuitry is different and will not be read correctly by the printer. If they are all brand new or unopened, there is always ebay.

Seems like your cartridge need to be changed, maybe is very old in production date and ink is no more so fluid.
