Pull down the front cover by placing your hand on the right hand side of the printer.  The white panel facing you will flip down.  The cartridges are found on the right side when looking at the front of the printer.  There is a diagram on the inside of the panel door which tells you how to insert the cartridges. There are two of them, the left one is color and the right one is black and white.  Depending on what the printouts look like, you'll need to either replace both or just one of them.  Place your thumb on the top of the cartridge and gently press down and pull towards the front.  It should "unclick" and come out.  If it's not moving and you're exerting too much force, you may be doing it incorrectly.  Each cartridge is removed in similar fashion.  Grasp the new replacement cartridge and pull the clear plastic piece off if it's present, then pul the taped tab off the bottom.  Insert the new cartridge with the label facing up so that you can read the words.  Put the bottom in first (the part where you removed the tape) at a 45 degree angle, then place your thumb on top and push up and forward to snap in the new cartridge.  After you insert the cartridge(s), close the front white panel.  The printer should recognize the cartridges and start aligning them and you should be able to print after that.  If it gets stuck aligning, you may need to power off the print and turn it back on.  Hope this helps!

Changing ink cartridge on a HP C4280 printer

You open the clamshell and the carriage will move the cartridges to the place you can remove them. Just gently push down and pull out the cartridge. You replace it by inserting it and pushing up until the cartridge clicks into place.
