Re: Have a problem loading cartridges for a C3100...

Have you checked for any obstructions in the carriage? And I assume you are using the proper cartridge for the printer (92 for black and 93 for color)

I no longer have my manual, how do I change the ink cartridges for the HP Officejet 6300 all-in-one?

To replace the print cartridges
1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is on.
Caution If the HP All-in-One is off when you open the print cartridge door
to access the print cartridges, the HP All-in-One will not release the
cartridges for changing. You might damage the HP All-in-One if the print
cartridges are not docked safely on the right side when you try to remove
2. Open the print cartridge door.
The print carriage moves to the far right side of the HP All-in-One.
3. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a
print cartridge to release it.
If you are replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the
slot on the left.
If you are replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge
from the slot on the right.
4. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot.
5. If you are removing the black print cartridge in order to install the photo print
cartridge, store the black print cartridge in the print cartridge protector or an
airtight plastic container.
If you are removing the print cartridge because it is low or out of ink, recycle the
print cartridge. The HP Inkjet Supplies Recycling Program is available in many
countries/regions, and lets you recycle used print cartridges free of charge. For
more information, go to the following website:
6. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch
only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.
7. Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Then gently push on the
upper part of the print cartridge forward until it clicks into the socket.
If you are installing the tri-color print cartridge, slide it into the left slot.
If you are installing a black or photo print cartridge, slide it into the right slot.
8. Close the print cartridge door
9. If you installed a new print cartridge, the print cartridge alignment process begins.
10. Make sure you have plain paper loaded in the input tray, and then press OK.
11. The HP All-in-One aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the print
cartridge alignment sheet.
12. Press OK.

I cannot get the black cartridge to move to the center so that I can replace it now. I have windows XP and have had no problems in the past. My printer is HP DeskJet 882C.

Try unplugging your printer, and plugging it back on. Then open the cover to remove the catridge in the normal procedure.
If this fails then it means something has just blocked the way for your catridge to rail back into place, check if anything is out of place (compared with the norm you used to see).

When was the last time you changed the black ink on the printer? If it's been a while then I would suggest you change it. If you recently have changed it then you can try pulling the cartridge out of the printer and giving it a small shake. Put the cartridge back in and run an alignment operation on the printer. You can do that through the printer utilities installed on your computer.

When printing black, the first page comes out in clear black, however subsequent pages are printed in red. In doing a second document the same thing occurs.

Be sure to update your printer drivers with the newest (correct) manufacturer's drivers.

Also, make sure when you print a document you are printing in greyscale. Otherwise, you're wasting your color cartridge. Speaking of which I would try another set of cartridges, and aligning them using the software that came with your printer. Your color cartridge could be malfunctioning.

Check that your black ink cartridge has ink inside, eventually try a new cartridge , as ink may have dried up in old cartridge.
If you use a new cartridge ensure you removed cellotape from cartrige.
If cartridge is ok, then it is printer nozzle/head for black ink.
In this case do nozzle check / head cleaning in printer tools a couple of times.
If problem persist you may need to check and clean printer's head with cotton and solvent.

Put compatable ink cartridges in to dx 5050 epson but will not accept message reads not compatable and printer wont work yet manufacturers say they will HELP is needed to get printer running

if the cartridges are saying not-compatable, this means the printer has detected non-epson original cartridges.
If you go into your printer preferences, or program. And look if there is an icon or application, that says ** Change A Print Cartridge** if there is, follow the on screen instructions.
If you have purchased the cartridges from a shop/store. they may have not re-charged the chips. ( which informs the printer that they are Full )
Also make sure, the cartridges are firmly pushed into thier slots. a positive click can be felt, don,t be bashful about putting a little pressure on them.

We just attached the macbook to the hppsc 1350v all in one printer and new print cartridges. When attempting to print, message reads"color print cartridge not compatible with this printer". We know we have...


Just to confirm pls:
1. the new print cartridges are original HP inks;
2. you have remove the bright pink tape from the ink cartridges;
3. the black is on the right side and the color is on the left side.

You can try removing both cartridges and clean the gold colored contacts where the pink tape was. Pls do the same to the mate pins in the cartridge holder in the printer.

Try again. If this does not be corrective, you may need to change inks again.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
