The manual can be found here: According to the manual to remove the print cartridges, you pull back on the top of the cartridge and it will snap out of place. Then pull it up and it has been removed.

Question about ink cartridges


The printer will take a little quantity of color ink though you are printing in black in order to get good quality. Hence it is not possible to print with just black ink cartridge without color cartridge.

Thank you.

Microsoft Windows Vista and Compaq A3000

Onmly Compaq will have the approprive driver download. You are correct to assume a Vista compatability issue- this is becoming more evirdent with many peripherals. By the bye- the printer is of course a rebadged Lexmark or HP or Brother [ can be either] see if you can see which and check the appropriate web site. This site may also be of assistance
