The Basics manual from HP:
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00694908.pdf

Check out page 17 of the Basics manual for detailed instruction on replacing the cartridges.

Make sure the HP All-in-One is on.
Caution If the HP All-in-One is off when you open the print cartridge door
to access the print cartridges, the HP All-in-One will not release the
cartridges for changing. You might damage the HP All-in-One if the print
cartridges are not docked safely when you try to remove them.
2. Make sure you have letter or A4 unused plain white paper loaded in the input tray.
3. Open the print cartridge door.
The print carriage moves to the far right side of the HP All-in-One.
4. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a
print cartridge to release it.
If you are replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the
slot on the left.
If you are replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge
from the slot on the right.

1 Print cartridge slot for the tri-color print cartridge
2 Print cartridge slot for the black and photo print cartridges
5. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot.
6. If you are removing the black print cartridge in order to install the photo print
cartridge, store the black print cartridge in the print cartridge protector or an
airtight plastic container.
If you are removing the print cartridge because it is low or out of ink, recycle the
print cartridge.
7. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch
only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.
1 Copper-colored contacts
2 Plastic tape with pink pull tab (must be removed before installing)
3 Ink nozzles under tape
Caution Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles.
Touching these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical
connections.
8. Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Then gently push on the
upper part of the print cartridge forward until it clicks into the socket.
If you are installing the tri-color print cartridge, slide it into the left slot.
If you are installing a black or photo print cartridge, slide it into the right slot.
9. Close the print cartridge door.
If you installed a new print cartridge, the HP All-in-One prints a print cartridge
alignment sheet.
Note If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align
the print cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper
into the input tray, and then try the alignment again.
If the alignment fails again, you might have a defective sensor or print
cartridge. Contact HP Support. Go to www.hp.com/support. If prompted,
choose your country/region, and then click Contact HP for information on
calling for technical support.

The following print cartridge is not intended for use in this printer for HP-Photosmart C3180. Cartridge on Right . Not able to use Compatible ink cartridge for this model? any solutions?


The ink cartridges that can be used with this printer are HP92(black), HP93(tricolor), and HP99(photo). You can use other brands that cross over to the HP numbers but they would be the only cartridges you should use for proper operation.

Want to know where u put the photosmart ink in printer


Hello,

Open the print cartridge door. Make sure the print carriage moves to the right. If it does not move to the right, turn the device off, then turn it back on again. IMPORTANT: The device must be turned on to insert cartridges.

You can see the location and proceedure to change the ink cartridges on page 14 of the manual (found here: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00694908.pdf). Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words <grin>.

Hope this helps,

Chris

Will not print black


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came withthe printer. When the software program asks you to connect theprinter to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
