I can't seem to install my ink cartridge correctly. Do you have a picture demonstration on how to do this? I continue getting an error message.


Installing the print cartridges Follow the instructions below to install the print cartridges: caution.png 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.
  1. Remove the print cartridge from its packaging and carefully remove the plastic tape from the copper strip. Figure 2: Removing the plastic tapec00109809.jpg
  2. With the power on, open the printer's top cover. The cradle moves to the center of the printer.
  3. Hold the print cartridge so that the copper strip is on the bottom. Figure 3: Holding the print cartridgec00109811.jpg
  4. Insert the cartridge into the cradle at a slight upward angle until you feel resistance. Figure 4: Inserting the print cartridgec00109813.jpg
  5. Firmly push the cartridge into the cradle. You will hear a snapping sound when the print cartridge is correctly positioned. The print cartridge fits securely in its cradle. Figure 5: Print cartridge in correct positionc00109815.jpg
  6. Close the top cover.
  7. Calibrate the printer for optimum print quality.
    Best of luck!

My printer canon mp190 says the ink cartridges are not recognized. The same ink cartridges have been working. I can't figure out why of a sudden they aren't recognized.


It seems to me that these ink cartridges are not Cannon. This can happen anytime. I would suggest you get original Cannon cartridges. It always pays to get the real thing.
Hope this helps.

"Print carrier stall"?


Error 0502-Carrier Stall indicates a physically blocked carrier. This condition can occur for many possible reasons. Most often, the carrier is blocked because the ink cartridge lids are open while the printer is on (Figure 1).

HP C7280 Printer not priting wirelessly.


Solution Replace the indicated ink cartridge(s), or press OK on the control panel to continue. HP recommends the use of genuine HP ink cartridges. Genuine HP ink cartridges are designed and tested with HP printers to help produce great results, time after time.
NOTE: HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. Printer service or repairs required as a result of printer failure or damage due to the use of non-HP ink will not be covered under warranty. Follow these steps to replace the depleted HP ink cartridge(s). Step one: Replace the indicated cartridge(s)
  1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is turned on.
    NOTE: The Attention light blinks when the product is turned on.
  2. Open the access door by lifting from the front center of the HP All-in-One, until the door locks into place. Figure 1: Opening the access door c01079714.jpg
  3. Squeeze the bottom of the latch below the ink cartridge to replace, and then lift the latch.
    • To replace the black ink cartridge, lift the latch on the far left.
    • To replace one of the five color ink cartridges, such as yellow, light cyan (blue), cyan, light magenta (pink), or magenta, lift the appropriate latch in the center area.
    Figure 2: Lifting the latch c01079715.jpg 1 - Ink cartridge latch for the black ink cartridge 2 - Ink cartridge latches for the color ink cartridges
  4. Pull the ink cartridge towards you out of its slot to remove it. Figure 3: Removing the ink cartridge c01079716.jpg
  5. Remove the new ink cartridge from its packaging.
  6. Holding the new ink cartridge by the handle, push the ink cartridge into the empty slot. Match the color and pattern of the ink cartridge to the color and pattern on the print carriage. Figure 4: Inserting the new cartridge c01079717.jpg
  7. Close the latch, and make sure it is secure. c01079718.jpg
  8. Close the access door. Figure 5: Closing the access door c01079719.jpg
Step two: Align the new ink cartridge(s)
  1. Make sure paper is loaded in the input tray, and then press the OK button. The HP All-in-One prints the alignment page, aligns the printhead, and initializes the ink cartridges. This takes approximately 5 minutes. CAUTION: Do not disconnect or turn off the HP All-in-One during this time. You may hear the HP All-in-One making noises.
  2. Check the display for status, and then press the OK button. Recycle or discard the alignment page.
Cause The original HP ink in the indicated ink cartridge(s) has been depleted.
