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
them.
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:
www.hp.com/hpinfo/globalcitizenship/environment/recycle/inkjet.html
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.

Fuser Error


I truly believe that you did not take the fuser out. It is not a simple process and is not readily accessible.
You most likely took out the toner cartridge, which works with the fuser.
The fuser is what "fuses" the toner to the paper so the documents print as expected. There are fuser kits that can be purchased, and they usually come with some decent instructions.


in case of new printer
A fuser problem is serious but if it is is a new printer, use the warranty now. Don't play with it as more than likely you can't recover and you *MAY VOID* the warranty in any attempts, so use the warranty. You should have returned it immediately once the problem cropped-up to be within the quicker satisfaction settlement period, you may now have to deal with a warranty center if not the vendor themselves for repair, but start the process. Plus, document this as well, cal,s letters, etc. to best serve yourself if any other problems arise.

To explain what the fuser is, one must explain what the fuser does.

A laser printer works by assembling the page in its memory, then transfers that "image" by scanning a drum. The drum then picks up a charge which will attract the toner. By varying the laser you can induce specific dots, creating an image on the drum. The drum is rotated through the toner, the charge then attracts the oppositely charged toner particles (the uncharged sections don't have anything) The drum, now dark with toner, is touched to the paper, which has an opposite charge, thus transfer all the toner over to the paper. Then the paper is sent THROUGH the fuser, which basically MELTS the toner onto the paper permanently.

If the fuser is too hot, that means the temp control unit for the printer fuser has FAILED, and that is NOT something you can fix by yourself. The labor will likely cost more than the printer unless it's under warranty.

You took out the toner cartridge, which is NOT the fuser. Toner cartridge is just the toner and the drum together in one unit. The fuser is where it warns "high temp! do not touch!"

Just buy another printer or use the backup printer. Again, this is NOT something you can fix by yourself.

I have a Brother MFC-8860DN and the left side of the paper is lighter than the right side. Is this a drum problem? I've always found that a Line will appear on the page when it is the drum.


Dear Briquet ,
First you have to clean the drum by a Cotton cloth and try it , If its not works then my suggestion is you have to replace the Drum unit for your Printer.

Cheerup and Be Happy always

Hi I have a Lexmark X63 and it says add left cartridge and will not print. I have however already done that. The computer says the printer is busy.


Try reinstalling the printer drivers and software, sometimes the printer does not communicate with your PC properly.

I have a Canon Pixma IP 5000 inkjet printer and am using Mac OS 10.3.9. It has 5 ink cartridges: 2 black (3e and 6) and one each yellow, magenta and cyan. I use it all day every day. After printing...


Thanks for getting back to me.
Sorry this ain't a solution but it seems to be the only cash-free way to contact you. No problem not solved - though I have tried everything. Dismantled the printer; washed, dried and replaced the waste ink pads; washed the print head; blew compressed air through the print-head sponge; replaced the cartridge 3 times; printed hundreds of test prints. I can't think of anything else to do and so I think the only solution is to replace the printhead (probably not even available) or replace the printer. The latter is looking most likely.

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...


Hi,

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.
