Could you be more specific? Are you talking about removing an ink cartridge on an HP printer? If so, for most models, you press down on the colored ink holder from above to release the latch. Pull forward on the latch to disengage the arm completely. Then, pull the cartridge out.

Black Cartrige Missing

Did you use a brandname ink cartridge - or is it a knock-off brand? If it is a brand name - then the cartridge is most likely defective. If it is a knock-off brand - some printers do not recognize the electronic in the cartridge and therefore don't see it as one being installed.

Receiving the message "Ink Catridge problem: ink cartridge appears to be missing or damaged". I've tried everything from cleaning cartridge holders to replacin cartridges. Nothing works and the printer...

The message you are getting may be due to the following reasons :

1) Cause : One or more ink cartridges missing.
Solution : Remove and reinsert the ink cartriges and verify that they are fully inserted and locked in place.

2) Cause : One or more of the ink cartriges are not installed or are installed incorrectly.
Solution : Remove and reinsert the ink cartriges and verify that they are fully inserted and locked in place. If the problem persists, clean the copper-colored contacts of the ink cartriges.

Does not recognize ink cartrige

If you can see ink in the window, just unplug machine and plug in while holding the stop button. Sometimes errors are just held and not reset, so that plugging in power while holding the stop button will clear them.

My printer does not print black & White documents

You just have to clean the printer head or change it.
Happend to me and solved it:
Open the top the way you use to change an ink cartrige...Unplug the power cord.. the ink tray will stay accessible.
Save your ink in some plastic wrap.
Just where you pull the ink cartriges is the head. Lift the little arm on right top of the assembly and pull toward you the black plastic kind of container..(for ink cartriges)..
that is where the head is attached. DO NOT FORCE should come easily.
At first place in warm clear water..use rubber gloves..often change water. When it looks quite is not. Unscrew the two littles screws holding the flat ribbon tip where the ink should go out..Beware...lift it gently..
underneat there is a small rubber part..just lift the end covering the black ink exit...Now pour all this in warm water mixed with Windex for some time and change the water till it comes quite clear. Now blow air from a compressed air can in the black ink will be surprise to see the amount of plugged ink coming out from there.Rince, dry with compressed air,screw back parts,place everything back and try an head alingment test to see your Black here again..

No black ink print. Prints in light blue

Cartriges have a shelf life. It's printing in blue either because it has dried up or is out. Different cartriges have different timelines but if you haven't been using the printer often, it could have dried up or is simply out of ink. I would suggest first to try cleaning the head of the cartrige where the ink comes out with alcohol and a Q-tip and then if that doesn't work, buying a new black cartrige.
