Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer
How do you install ink cartridge and where
Open the printer below the scanner bed. Lift up immediately above the keyboard area. This opening is immediately below the opening for the scanner bed. If you have the printer on, the cartridges will move to the center. There is a legend in front that shows you which is black and which is color after you open the printer. To take out a cartridge, push the aqua latch immediately in front of a cartridge. A top cover to the cartridge on springs pops up. You can gently pull a cartridge out of its housing. If you are replacing a cartridge, remove any orange pieces from the new cartridge as needed, remove any tape covering the copper sensors, then put the new cartridge where the old one was and push down on the cartridge spring-loaded housing cover. Repeat for the other cartridge as needed. When finished and the housing covers are closed, close the printer and the printer will move the cartridges where they need to be. Use the printer's software to align cartridges as needed. You should be good to go!

Tips for a great answer:
Replacing ink cartridges
Make sure you have a new ink cartridge or cartridges before you begin. You must install new cartridges immediately
after removing the old ones or the ink remaining in the printhead nozzles may dry out.
1 Turn on your printer.
2 Open the printer.
Note: The printhead moves to the cartridge installation position.
3 Press the release tab, and then remove the used ink cartridge or cartridges.
4 Install each ink cartridge. Use two hands to install the black cartridge.
Note: Install the new ink cartridges immediately after removing the protective cap to avoid exposing the ink to air.
5 Close the printer.
The setup guide is on theCD you received with the printer.
