You may have damaged the Cartridge cradle already, but removing it may also damage the Cartridge cradle. First, inspect the cartridge to make sure there are no plastic clips, etc. blocking the passageway for removing the cartridge. It may take some force, but the cartridge should slide right out. Most HP printer cartridges are similar, if not the same size and shape, so it should come out with ease. You may need to use a flathead screwdriver, taking caution to not break the Cartridge cradle any more than it already may be.

Broken clip for black ink cartridge

Unfortunately, this is not an easy fix. To replace the ink cartridge holder, you would have to dissasemble the whole Print head/Carriage assembly. The when you put it back together , there are timing factors to be set. With printers so inexpensive, I would opt for a new unit.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

No power ON

Here is what HP suggests: Issue The top access door on the printer may be open, or there may be something wrong with the print cartridge. Solution 1. Check to ensure that the top access door is firmly closed. 2. If the light continues to blink, open the top access door. When the top access door is opened, the print cradle moves so the yellow arrow on top of the cradle points to a drawing of a cartridge. Each drawing describes a symptom. Here is a link to describe the pictures at the top of your printer: It might be that the cover's tab is broken (the tab is what tells the printer that the cover is closed)
