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 when you try to remove them.

I have never used the Photo ink Cartridge #58. It intal pic shows putting it where the black one goes-does this mean I would use the color and the photo one at the same time instead of the black one?


Yes correct.The photo cartridge has to be inserted, where you install black cartridge.The photo cartridge gives finishing touch to the photos which you print.The actual photo comes from the color cartridge only, but for lightness and darkness, the color(ink) from photo cartridge gets used.In photo cartridge there are three color ink, that are light pink, light blue and grayish black.In color cartridge there are three color ink, that are pink(magenta), yellow and cyan( blue).------------- This are the details.Thank you for using fixya.

How do i remove the ink cartridge ?


Turn on the unit, then open the print-carriage access door by lifting

the handle until the door locks into place.

The print carriage moves to the center of the unit.

You may want to use a photo print cartridge for

superior print quality when printing photos. With the

color and photo print cartridges installed, you have

a six-ink system. See how to print the best quality

photos on page 22 for more information.

2 After the carriage stops moving, lift the latch to release the print

cartridge, then pull it toward you out of its slot.

3 If you are removing the black print cartridge in order to install the

photo print cartridge, store it in the print cartridge protector.

4 Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful

to touch only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape.

Caution! Do not touch the copper contacts or ink nozzles.

5 Push the new print cartridge into the appropriate slot until it clicks into
