If you are replacing. Power on - lift top front lid of printer - wait till cartridges come to centre and stop FULLY. Lift clear tab at front of cartridge being replaced and remove cartridge. Insert new cartridge -press top fron down until clear tab clicks then shut top lid of printer.
Then go Start-Programs- Printers select the Ip3000 priter icon, right click - select maintenance - selelct nozzle check and follow instructionson screen. You may have to do a deep clean (ee on screen) if the ink has dried a bit in the printhead.
If tryinmg to refill the cartridge - unless you are an expert at it forget it - buy either genuine or quality aftermarket cartridges - No mess - no fuss - no ruined printer .

To change the ink, make sure that the printer is on (green light is lit). Then lift up the entire scanner unit and latch the support on the right. Wait for the cartridge carrier to move into the ink cartridge replacement position. Open the cartridge cover on the right hand side by pinching the front and the tab on the top together; then lift it upwards. The cover will rotate towards the back of the printer. Pull the empty cartridge back out of the slot. Open your new cartridge and peel off the protective tape. (Do not touch the electrical contacts or the nozzles.) Place the new cartridge in the slot (slide it forward). Then rotate the cartridge cover back down until it clicks. If you do not need to change the color cartridge, lift up on the scanner unit until the support unlocks. Then carefully lower the entire scanner unit to close it (don't pinch your fingers or drop the scanner unit). If the orange Alarm light comes on, check that the cartridges are correctly installed and the cover is in place. Wait until the printer recharges ink system before sending a print job or copying a page.
Remove the old ink jet cartridge from the printer following the manufacturer instructions. Close the lid on the printer to keep it free from dust and debris while you are refilling the Canon ink cartridge.
Locate the ink tank on the cartridge. Put a 3mm drill bit in a drill. Drill a hole in the top of the ink tank on the cartridge.
Gently insert the needle on the bottle of ink into the hole you just drilled in the ink cartridge. Avoid squeezing the bottle until the needle is completely inserted in the ink tank.
Squeeze the ink bottle gently to refill the cartridge. Fill the tank with a little at a time until the cartridge is full.
Remove the needle from the ink tank. Wipe the top of the Canon ink cartridge off with a paper towel. Place a small piece of duct tape over the drilled hole. Rub the tape to remove air bubbles and to make sure it adheres to the cartridge.
Put the refilled ink cartridge back into the printer. Clean the head of the printer by running the printer software and following the instructions for head cleaning.
If you are trying to figure out how to load your ink cartridge in you Canon Pixma follow these instructions.
Make sure you printer is powered on. Open the top cover including the key display.
Allow the ink return to move to left and stop. Remove the old cartridge which should have a 40 Black or 40 color on it by pushing down and popping it out of the holder.
Now open your new ink cartridge and tear off the protective stip from the ink cartridge.
Place the new ink cartridge in at a downward angle and then push into a straight position by pushing the bottom into place.
Close the top an allow for the printer to adjust into place. Do a test print to make sure the printer is working correctly.
If you experience an error message refer to your canon guide book for troubleshooting tips. Be sure your new ink cartridge in placed in correctly. Should be next to the other ink cartridge in same alignment.

They are not in the middle as shown in the manual. I still can't find them. God! this printer is only that big and I spent three days looking at every possible corners and gaps and still can't see where the ink cartridges are. Will not buy this Canon printer again.
That printer the ink is housed underneath the top portion of the printer. To open the top, reach down under the buttons or display area,, and left up, a blue plastic piece will slide out and lock the top into place. Once that up, look inside and the ink cartridges will eventually slide over to the left side of the printer. Look left towards the silver bar and you'll see two plastic holders for the ink. Take the ink cartridge out, by pushing down on the top edge of the cartridge, then out. To replace them, remember to remove the protective seal on the ink cartridge and put the ink cartridge in by holding the ink cartridge at an angle that has the copper control slip pointing upwards. Make sure you put it in below the top ridge of the plastic holders. Then once you slip the cartridge into the holder at the upwards angle, pull up again on the cartridge to snap it into place. That's it your cartridges are reset with new ink.
and don't forget to leave a rating based on my solution.
1. check for any paper that may have jam inside the printer. 2. check for open covers, back, top covers and close them properly. 4. check your power adapter if its giving correct voltage to the printer. 3. Try to move the ink cartridge to the left gently and return back to the right most part.
