Printer (HP 4215) wiggin out on me

So I installed new ink cartridges and now the little sliding gizmo that they fit into won't slide back in once the door is shut, it's like having a seizure in there. I don't know what I did but darn it I hope it can be fixed. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

Bought used Photosmart C3180 printer. Need to know how to insertcartridges. Thanks


for this particular printer, there are two slots, one with a green triangle and another with 2 different shapes. The left one is for colour and the right for black ink.
First you want to pull the desired cartridge out by putting a finger on both top and bottom and it should literally slide out (if it doesn't first time lift it up slightly first). Save the cartridge for future refill and the cartridge you want to put in you hold the same way and again from the bottom just literally slide it in. You should be able to click it in once it is all the way - this indicates it is in correctly, the printer should now run a test print

Changing an HP Ink Cartridge
  • 1

    Open the lid of the printer. Depending on the model, there will be two cartridges on the right, one for black and one for color.

  • 2

    Find the cartridge that is running low on ink. The black cartridge will be in black, the color cartridge will have a patch of color (usually green) on it.

  • 3

    Pull down on the black clamp that is holding the cartridge in place and slide out the used cartridge.

  • 4

    Open the package of the new ink cartridge. Remove the protective tape and slide the new cartridge into the printer.

  • 5

    Snap the black protective case back into place and close the lid.

    Caution! Do not touch the gold-colored contacts or ink nozzles.
    Once you have removed the plastic tape, install the print cartridge
    immediately to prevent the ink from drying in the nozzles.


    4 Hold the black or photo print cartridge with the HP label on top. Slide the print cartridge at a slight angle up into the right side of the print carriage.
    Press firmly until the print cartridge snaps into place.
    Caution! Do not attempt to push the cartridge straight into the slot.
    It must slide in at a upward slight angle.

    INK CARTRIDGE WILL NOT FIT BACK INTO THE PRINTER


    The white roller is the hub that engages with the toner cartridge after it is installed. It is flush with the toner door open. As the door is closed the white arm attached to the toner door on the right side causes it to move inward. One possible scenario is that the tab on the door that it clips to is broken or the clips on the arm are damaged.

    My HP Printer does not show color. When I print black and white, I get a pinkish cast and often pinkish printing.


    It is possible you're black cartridge is too low on ink & needs replaced. If you're black ink cartridge is new, there could be small ammounts of sticky tape left over the contacts of the ink cartridge. Please clean the ink cartridge's copper contacts (side only, not the bottom of the ink cartridge), with a cotton swab & a little alcohol. Since the ink cartridge is removed clean copper contacts inside the carriage holder as well. Allow time for the alcohol to dry. All most every printer installs software that monitors ink level's. To check you're printer for this. Click the start button, slide up to & click Printers and faxs. The printer and fax window will open. You're default printer will have a little check mark next to it. Right click once on that printer name, another little pop-up window will open, slide to & left click on properties.
    You're printer (It's name) will open. Near the bottom click on Printing Preferences. Another window will open. Click the Services tab. Than click Service this device. You should be able to see the ink levels.

    Have more questions? Please feel free to ask.
    Hope this has helped.
    Luck!
    Mike
