    As was my experience in the past, HP will not allow me to purchase the repair part.  HP will repair the printer for $279.00 or will discount a replacement printer at a discounted price.This is the second time this item has failed. The first time was under warranty and the printer was replaced with a refurbished unit.

How do I get the cartridge out to replace with new one???

The steps of replacing cartridge with a new one.

1) First You keep the printer power on. Open the printer cover - you will find the cartridges holder will come in proper place (the position varies printer to printer) so that you can easily remove the old cartridge.

2) Press gently the upper front portion of the cartridge you want to remove out of the printer holder - you will find it will be unlocked - just remove the cartridge carefully. (in some printer there is a cover on top of the cartridge holder which you can open to perform the step 2.

3) Unpack the new cartridge.

4) Don't forget to remove the plastic tape from the cartridge head ( HP, Lexmark cartridges etc).

5) Look the printer holder and look to the cartridge - you can easily decide the position of the cartridge in the holder.

6) Gently and carefully  put the cartridge in the holder - press the upper portion of the cartridge from front side - the cartridge will be locked autometically in the holder.

7) Put the printer cover in proper place. 

8) Print Now - it will print test page first. Now print as usual.

I hope the solution is helpful to you. Thanks for using

The print cartidge is missing

Please note the printer make and model and visit any computer shop - disclose the model name there they will give you the perfect cartridge. If you know how to fit the cartridge then well but if you don't then unpack the cartridges and please remove the plastic tape from the cartridge head or it will not work, open printer cover up - notice the empty cartridge holder in the printer, there you notice black and color cartridge holder. Look to the cartridge and holder you will understand the position of the cartridge to fit, now push the lower portion of any cartridge to the holder and give a very low pressure on the top (backward pressure to fit the in the holder). Same way you fit the next cartridge. Close the printer cover down. Print any document - it will definitely print.

reseat the cartridges. Then power back on.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

The printer doesn't recognize the new original HP color cartridge

There is a small spring that holds the ink cartridge in the ink holder. You will see it stick out from the right hand side of the ink holder where the ink cartridge slides in. If that spring isn't being held to the ink holder by two plastic tabs, (I.E. the plastic tabs are broken) the printer will never recognize the cartridge. If the printer is still under warranty I would contact HP or an authorized repair center for HP. Both the black and color ink holder has this spring. I know of no way to repair this kind of breakage.

Black ink won't print

Any tape/plastic left on the contact points on the cartridge, or any dirt on the contact points on the cartridge or cartridge holder? Will your old cartridge work, except poor print due to empty of ink? If so your new cartridge may be broken.

See if you can try a cartridge known to work in your printer and also try your cartridge in a printer similar to yours to eliminate source of error.

Lexmark x3350 will not Print

Sounds like the cartridge just popped out. There are no "lasers" that move anything.
