Most of the time if you lift the cover on the printer to access the cartridges they will move to the center. With the power on, open the cover to the print cartridge area and wait a few minutes to see if they move to the center.

How to change ink in HP Deskjet F480 printer???


  • Check the ink levels by opening the HP Solution Center. Click on "Settings." Click on "Toolbox." Click on "Services." Click on "Service this device." Click on "Estimated Ink Levels." A graphic will appear showing the estimated ink level in each cartridge.
  • 2 Verify that the unit is on. Open the print cartridge door allowing the print carriage to move to the far right side of the unit. Once the print carriage has stopped, lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot. To replace the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. To replace the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right. Place the cartridge in a plastic bag as it may still contain some residual ink and may leak.
  • 3 Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging. Remove the plastic tape by using the pull tab, being careful to not touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink nozzles under tape.
  • 4 Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Gently push the upper part of the print cartridge until it clicks into place. The tri-color print cartridge fits into the left slot. The black or photo print cartridge fits into the right slot.
  • 5 Close the print cartridge door. If the print cartridge alignment sheet prints, load it on the left front corner of the scanner glass with the top of the page to the left. Verify that there is plain paper loaded in the input tray, and then press the "Scan" button to align the printer.

    Printer (HP5650) has full ink cartridges.window sez almost empty


    That is normal, the printer "sees" the cartridges by their serial number, so when you pop in a refilled cartridge, the printer thinks you have put in old cartridges and continue to show low ink level. When you pop in a new one, with a new serial code, the ink level will reset, showing that the cartridges are full again.
    You can try this:
    1. Open printer lid so cartridges move to center of carriage.
    2. Lift clamp and remove black or color cartridge from the holder.
    3. Place cartridge on table with copper contact strip facing you.
    4. Carefully place a strip of clear plastic tape over the four contacts on the upper left corner of the cartridge.
    5. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position.
    6. Open lid and remove cartridge again. Remove tape from left side and place tape over four contacts at upper right corner of cartridge.
    7. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position again.
    8. Open lid again, remove cartridge, remove tape.
    9. Reinstall cartridge and close lid.
    Printer will now recalibrate. Once the process is complete the ink level meter should be reading full again.
    Doesn't always work, but you can try.

    Epson printer only work if there are all ink tank installed, and one of them not reach zero ink level (ink out in program). After replacing black ink, may be the other ink tanks reach zero level, so message to replace ink tank appear again. You can use the used ink tank (by refilling) if you don't reset ink level counter. Better you use the CISS ink tank (with or without outside bottle), that have autoreset function.

    I'm trying to change an ink cartridge. Cartridges


    Usually the printer manual will have instructions on changing the cartridge. If you don't have a manual, there is a chance you can find one online by googling the make and model number. On some printers the cartridges center when you open a door to access them, or lift a lid or a scanner deck, or turn off or turn on the printer.

    To replace the ink cartridges
    1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is turned on.
    2. Open the ink cartridge door by lifting from the front center of the device, until the door locks into place.
    3. Squeeze the tab below an ink cartridge to release the latch inside the HP All-in-One, and then lift the latch.
    If you are replacing the black ink cartridge, lift the latch on the far left.
    If you are replacing one of the five color ink cartridges, such as yellow, light cyan (blue), cyan, light magenta (pink), or magenta, lift the appropriate latch in the center area.
    4. Pull the ink cartridge toward you out of its slot to remove it.
    5. Remove the new ink cartridge from its packaging, and then, holding it by the handle, slide the ink cartridge into the empty slot.
    Make sure that you insert the ink cartridge into the slot that has the same shaped icon and color as the one you are installing.
    6. Press down on the gray latch until it clicks into place.
    7. Repeat steps 2 through 5 for each ink cartridge you are replacing.
    8. Close the ink cartridge door.

    re Printing in black only - you can do this by selection this option from your application and choosing the print properties of the printer and setting to Black / Greyscale printing only.

    How do I manually center the ink cartridges on my A960 ?


    The ink cartridge had jammed the carrier and prevented it from moving. I stuck my little finger in the bottom of the carrier, pushed the cartridge up a bit, freed the carrier and was able to move it manually. I replaced the cartridge and all the messages went away. The printer now works as it should. Must have been a bad cartridge.

    There could be 4 possibilities.

    1. Ink cartridges lids are open which is not allowing cartridges to move freely.
    2. Ink cartridges carriage will not move from its original position(left) when front cover is opened
    3. Encoder strip is Dirty.
    4. Encoder strip is Out of position.

    Solution:
    1. Open the front cover and check if ink cartridges lids are properly snapped in.

    2. Turn the printer off and pull out the power cable from power socket, open the front cover and manually center the ink cartridges carriage.
    Clean the metallic rod inside the printer using WD40 or Kleenex from Left corner to right corner properly.

    3. Cleaning the encoder strip:
    a. printer should be off and disconnected from power.
    b. open the front cover.
    c. Using a dry, lint free cloth, pinch the encoder strip on the right-hand side of the cartridge carriage and pull your fingers across it toward the right-hand side of the printer and you can move the cartridges carriage to clean the strip completely.
    d. Note: The encoder strip is a narrow band of clear plastic and can be difficult to see without direct lighting running parallel to metallic rod.
    e. Close the printer and try again to print.

    4. Repositioning the Encoder strip.
    a. Remove the power cord from the printer.
    b. Open the front cover.
    c. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.
    d. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right.
    e. Using an index finger, gently push encoder strip down and then back up, to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.
    f. Gently press the strip first to the rear, and then forward, to ensure that it is seated correctly.
    g. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right, to check the positioning of the encoder strip.
    h. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the scanner lid.
    i. Re-connect the power cord to the printer and try again to print.

    Ink cartridge


    The access door for the cartridges in on the front right corner of the printer. Put your hand on the side of the printer, (Just around the corner), you will feel a spot to put your fingers to pull down the access door. It is well hidden, what where they thinking? From there it is really easy to just pull down the printer doors and change the ink cartridges.

    Good luck to all!
