Re: How to open and replace ink cartridges
Lift the top while the power is on and the heads shoud caddy over and stop in the center. There is a snap in front of these cartridge holders numbers on the cartridges match the number with the new and they will move after you unhitch the clip the rest is all common sence

Seems like the cartridge head is jammed. You can take the cartidge out and put the head for like 5 minutes in warm water then clean it gently with some tissue paper, hopefully this shall solve your problem.
Since it's trying to print, the printer probably just needs cartridges. The ink can dry in the nozzles with age and disuse and clog them.
Before you splurge on new cartridges, try getting them going. (This assumes there is some ink left in them.) Take the cartridges out of the printer, wet a layer of paper towels about 1/8 inch thick, and whack the nozzles against the wet surface a few times. Check every few whacks to see if you're getting any ink flow. Repeat until you see some ink on the towels and on the nozzles, or until you decide it's futile. Often this dislodges the clogged ink and opens the nozzles, and buys some extra printing time. But you're probably going to want new ones soon anyway.
How long ago was it since you last used it? Inkjet and deskjet printers don't like to sit more than a week or two without you printing anything or they dry up. Your cartridges may have dried up on the bottom or the part that the cartridge sits in may have dried up. Take a Q-tip dipped in isopropyl alcohol and dab it a few times. Make sure it's totally try before putting your cartridge back in.
i think ur talking about the black ink cartridge...ideally it should not get stuck but plz check if there is any plastic piece which is blocking it or there is any latch.If it gets stuck frequently its time for u to get a new printer.
You will need to clean the contacts on the cartridge & the printer.
Also check & clean the interface ribbon ( the white tap connected to the cartridge carriage.
Try this first.
Just a few ques.
Is the cart genuine of compatible,refill?
Did you have a paper jam or power outage before problem?
Well, Since the cartrigde has been working it could be just a matter of contact. Try removing the cartridge, and clean the contact surface on the cartridge with a alcoholic based cleaning liquid on a soft cloth. Tis might help solve the problem.
