Lets do it this way. Follow these steps again carefully and try to install the Ink.

Introduction
Follow the instructions below to replace the ink cartridges.
Replacing the ink cartridges
1. Verify that the unit is on.
2. Open the ink cartridge door.
3. Squeeze the gray tab below an ink cartridge slot to release the gray latch and then lift the latch.

1 - Ink cartridge latch for the black ink cartridge
2 - Ink cartridge latches for the color ink cartridges
NOTE: The ink cartridge areas are color-coded for easy reference. From left to right, the ink cartridges are black, yellow, light cyan, cyan, light magenta, and magenta.
4. Pull the ink cartridge toward you out of its slot to remove it.

5. Remove the new ink cartridge from its packaging.
6. Hold the ink cartridge by the handle and then slide the ink cartridge into the empty slot.
NOTE: Make sure that the ink cartridge is inserted into the slot that has the same shaped icon and color as the ink cartridge. The copper-colored contacts should be facing the printer as the ink cartridge is inserted.

7. Press down on the gray latch until it clicks into place.

8. Repeat steps 3 through 7 for each ink cartridge that needs to be replaced.
NOTE: All six cartridges must be installed. The printer will not work if an ink cartridge is missing.
9. Close the ink cartridge door. Print a test page.
If after doing this it does'nt work, then i will ask you to unplug the printer cable from the computer and uninstall the printer driver/Software completely.
Shut down your computer and restart it.
Re-install the printer driver/software from the start as you did when you bought it.
Good luck

SCREEN READS "INSERT RIGHT CARTRIDGE" ONLY THE COLOR CARTRIDGE IS LOADED. CAN'T I STILL GET IT TO PRINT??????


No..! you need to install the black cartridge..!
The printer needs to be aligned with both the cartridges no matter if they are empty or full. So even if the black cartridge is empty and the color cartridge is full. The color will print and the black wouldn't.

But if you install only one cartridge it will not work as i said that the printer could not align to the cartridges unless both the cartridges are installed.

On some printers if you install the black one only it works. Without installing the color one. But on this printer It is mandatory to install both the cartridges together other wise it will give you error codes.

This model needs the cartridges to be aligned and then print and if you see inside the printer it has a carriage holder for two cartridges which moves back and forth to print.

So install the black cartridge and it will work perfect.

I put the cartride in the wrong spot how do i get it out.


Hi there,

Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it.
If you are replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left.
If you are replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right.

Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot.
If you are removing the black print cartridge in order to install the photo print cartridge, store the black print cartridge in the print cartridge protector

How do I install ink cartridge for hp photosmart C4280


To replace the print cartridges
1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is on.
CAUTION: If the HP All-in-One is off when you open the print cartridge door to
access the print cartridges, the HP All-in-One will not release the cartridges for
changing. You might damage the HP All-in-One if the print cartridges are not
docked safely when you try to remove them.

2. Make sure you have letter or A4 unused plain white paper loaded in the input tray.

3. Open the print cartridge door.
The print carriage moves to the far right side of the HP All-in-One.

4. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a print
cartridge to release it.
If you are replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the
slot on the left.
If you are replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from
the slot on the right.
1 Print cartridge slot for the tri-color print cartridge
2 Print cartridge slot for the black and photo print cartridges
5. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot.
6. If you are removing the black print cartridge in order to install the photo print cartridge,store the black print cartridge in the print cartridge protector or an airtight plastic container.

7. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch only
the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.
1 Copper-colored contacts
2 Plastic tape with pink pull tab (must be removed before installing)
3 Ink nozzles under tape

CAUTION: Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles. Touching
these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.

8. Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Then gently push the upper
part of the print cartridge forward until it clicks into the socket.
If you are installing the tri-color print cartridge, slide it into the left slot.
If you are installing a black or photo print cartridge, slide it into the right slot.
Work with print cartridges 69

button next to OK.
NOTE: If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the print
cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the input
tray, and then try the alignment again.

11. Place the page print side down on the scanner glass and then press the button next
to OK to scan the page.

Lexmark X1100 printer will not print black


I came up with a work around for printing black.

I changed the black cartridge with the color cartridge.
Then when I have a letter to print, I change change (or write) the letter text to yellow, red or blue.
Then I can print out a letter.

By printing the text as yellow, red or blue the cartridge will try to print with only 1 color, but will print out black.

If you do not use one of these primary printing colors the out put will be unusable.

I can not of course print out pictures.

Printer not working!


Usually black is provided by the black cartridge only. You might be able to setup the printer through the control panel using black and white printing until the color cartridge is replaced. That might turn the color cartridge off allowing you to print.

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking


you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.
