Replacing the print cartridges
Make sure the HP all-in-one is on.
If the HP all-in-one is off when the print-carriage access door is lifted to access the print cartridges, the HP all-in-one will not release the cartridges for changing. Damage may occur to the HP all-in-one if the print cartridges are not docked safely on the right side when you try to remove them.
Open the print-carriage access door by lifting from the front center of the device, until the door locks into place.
The print carriage is on the far right side of the HP all-in-one.

When the print carriage is idle and silent, press down on the end of each cartridge to snap it out of the carriage.
If replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. If replacing the black or photo cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right.

Gently pull the print cartridge toward you, out of its slot.
If removing the black print cartridge to install the photo or gray photo print cartridge, store the black print cartridge in the print cartridge protector.
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.
Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles. Touching these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.

Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Push the print cartridge forward until it clicks into place.
If the print cartridge you are installing has a white triangle on its label, slide the print cartridge into the slot on the left. The label for the slot is green with a solid white triangle on it.
If the print cartridge you are installing has a white square or a white pentagon on its label, slide the print cartridge into the slot on the right. The label for the slot is black with a solid white square and a solid white pentagon on it.
Perhaps the Lexmark X2350 User's Guide will be able to help you. Just click on this link to download: http://bit.ly/bNOTdZ. Scroll to Replacing the print cartridge, Page 52, for the instructions on how to install your new ink cartridge.
Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't position automatically to the middle even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Just unplug the printer from the power source. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip and gently slide the carrier to the middle of the printer. Load the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug the printer back to power source.
Lift the entire top including the scanner portion until it clicks to stay open by itself (like some vehicle hoods). You should see the print head containing all the ink. It will slide back and forth for a moment, this is normal. Wait until it comes to a stop. Notice any blinking lights below the ink cartridges. If the light is solid, there is enough ink. If the light is blinking you'll need to replace that cartridge for the best print quality. Remove the ink by carefully but forcefully pushing on the tab with one finger and holding the back of the cartridge with other. It should simply slide out. Note the EXACT #'s on the ink cartridges. Right down all the information and the type of printer you have and take it to your local best buy or equivalent store, they will give you the replacement cartridges you need. Unwrap the package and carefully remove the orange tab on the bottom by twisting in the direction shown. (You may want to wear rubber gloves because the ink stains fingers badly.) Carefully but forcefully slide the new cartridge in place of the old and push down until you hear a click. The light under the cartridge should now be solid. Once all carts have been replaced close the lid of the printer and give it a moment to situate. Run a print head alignment to manually align all nozzles for best printing quality. Simply click the head align software button and follow the instructions, quite easy. You should be all set and ready to print!
I needed to know that to get to the ink cartridges the MP240 had to be switched ON before lifting up the whole scanner bed from the front.The ink cartridges will then slide to the middle and can be clicked out and a new ones clicked back in.
Go to this link. Type "replace ink" in the Search window and click Search. Click on the "How do I replace the ink cartridge(s)" link, and you will get detailed instructions. Make sure that the unit is turned on and that the carrier moves all the way to the left. After you slide a new cartridge into position, you must lift up on the end of the cartridge closest to you.
