This pull tab is on the cartridge to prevent it from leaking during shipment. You have to remove it to let the toner get to the drum.

Hi! I just changed my print cartridge (HP LaserJet- C7115X, ink 15x) and the printing quality is still low! It's as if it's still running out of ink, however the cartridge is brand new. Please help!


Did you remove the strip that the printers ship with? If the pull tab is still in then there is typically enough toner to print a few pages and then it fades out. Remove cartridge and check on left and right hand sides for a plastic loop usually orange. The instructions would have been in the box.

Installed a new cartridge and printer continues to say install new cartridge press


Did you pull out the plastic tab to allow the ink to flow? It is sometimes an orange or green plastic tab which when pulled, has a long plastic ribbon attached to it. Pull it completely out.

Replaced Yellow Cartridge, Red light on, close lid, not working,


Hi ...

I would suggest that you follow the below stesp to install the ink tank ..

. Ensure that the printer is on, and then open the Top Cover.
The Print Head Holder moves to the center.

Note: If the Top Cover is left open for more than 10 minutes, the Print Head Holder moves to the right. Close and reopen the Top Cover to return the holder to the center.
2. Open the Paper Output Tray.
Put your fingers in the notches in either side of the Paper Output Tray and pull down to open it, and then pull down the Inner Cover forward to open it.
3. Remove the ink tank whose lamp is flashing fast or is off.
Push the tab and remove the ink tank.
Do not touch the print head lock lever; remove only the ink tank.
ip4300_remove_ink_tankgif.gif
Caution: Handle ink tanks carefully to avoid staining clothing or the surrounding area. Discard empty ink tanks according to the local laws and regulations regarding disposal of consumables.
Note: Be sure to replace ink tanks one by one when replacing more than one ink tank.
4. Prepare a replacement tank.
preparetank.gif
* Do not touch the electrical contacts on the ink tank. Doing so can cause the printer to malfunction or become unable to print.
Unpack the new ink tank and completely pull off the orange tape. Then, remove the film. Remove the orange protective cap from the bottom of the ink tank and discard it.
Important:
  • Be sure to remove the clear film from the ink tank in the exact order shown in step 4, as failure to follow this step may cause the ink to leak and stain your clothes and hands.
  • Do not squeeze the side of ink tanks as this may cause the ink to leak out and stain your clothes and hands.
  • Do not re-attach the protective cap once you have removed it.
  • Do not touch the open ink port once the protective cap is removed, as this may prevent the ink from being ejected properly.
  • Ink on the removed protective cap may stain your clothes and hands.
  • Ensure that all the orange tape has been peeled off along the perforation. If there remains a part of the orange tape, ink may not be output correctly.
5. Install the ink tank.
ip4300_install_ink_tankgif.gif
(1) Insert the ink tank into the Print Head.
(2) Press on the 'PUSH' mark on the ink tank until the ink tank snaps firmly into place.
(3) Ensure that the ink tank lamp lights red.
Important: Ensure that all the ink tanks are installed in the order directed by the label. The printer cannot be used unless all the ink tanks are installed.
6. Close the Inner Cover.
Note: Ensure that the Inner Cover is closed. Printing will not occur if the Inner Cover is open.

7. Close the Top Cover.
The Print Head Holder moves to the right. The ink tank installation process is now complete.
  • The ALARM lamp still flashes orange after the Top Cover is closed if an ink tank is not installed properly. Open the Top Cover and make sure that all the ink tanks are installed in the correct order directed on the label.
  • To maintain optimal print quality, use an ink tank within six months of first use.
  • Once an ink tank has been used, do not remove it from the printer and leave it out in the open. This will cause the ink tank to dry out and the printer may not operate properly when it is reinstalled.
  • Color ink consumption may occur even when black-and-white or gray scale printing is specified.
    Color ink is consumed in the head cleaning and deep cleaning, which are necessary to maintain the printer.
  • When you start printing after replacing the ink tank, Print Head Cleaning is performed automatically. Do not perform any other operations until the Print Head Cleaning finishes. The POWER lamp flashes green during cleaning.

I have forgotten how to change ink cartridge


There is a door on the front of the printer on the right corner. There is a little tab thingy on the side of the printer that you use to pull the door open. This you can do from the front, you don't need to move the printer around to get access from the side.

Pull the door down and tada, there are the ink cartridges. What a pain in the ****, took me a good 1/2 hour to find the information on the internet.

Hope this helps everyone.
