Re: HP Deskjet 5940 reversed ink cartridges

It is best for you to take time to a Hp Center. You will damage the cart if you try to take them out. Hp service center has special tools which they use to take the cart out. If you are really good to them they will even do it free for you. It will not take more than 10 mins for the job.
