Thanks for using Fixya.

Click Here and you will get a pdf document in which all the necessary steps are given to install a cartridge.
Or you can follow the following steps:
1. Turn off the printer and wait for the fan to stop. Unplug the printer and open the top cover by pressing the top cover release button.
2. Open the left-side printer cover and locate the used developer cartridge that you wish to replace.
3. Press the release lever on the used developer cartridge and pull it one-third of the way out.
4. Pull the used developer cartridge out, using a horizontal motion. Take care to support the weight of the cartridge during removal.
5. Shake the new cartridge up and down and side to side so the toner within is evenly distributed.
6.Slide the new developer cartridge into the printer until the release lever locks. Use a horizontal motion and take care to support the cartridge's weight.
7. Close the side cover, then the top cover. Plug the printer in and turn it on. When the printer displays the message "Press On Line To Continue," press the On Line button and wait for the setup sequence to complete.

I am facing a problem in HP laserjet P1102. printer shows "Install Black Cartridge" when I have tried my best to resolve the issue. I am a technician and many printers come for this problem to me. I

#1-Remove the ink cartridge and use a q-tip and alcohol to clean the metallic portion of the cartridge. Gently slide the q-tip back and forth across the ink distribution openings, ink should cover the q-tip. dab dry with a paper towel and replace into the printer. #2-With the ink cartridge removed...Check the prongs on your printer that press against your ink cartridge when in place for connectivity. If covered with dry ink, use said q-tip and alcohol to clean. #3-replace the ink cartridge with a new one. Be careful, and gentle with your q-tip, rub easy, and let dry before proceeding. Be safe...and have plenty of paper towels on hand.....wear rubber gloves.....

My hp Color Laserjet 3550 Printer wont print black when it is out of color ink

The 3550 won't print in any color if any of the colors are out. You'll have to replace the color ink that's empty to get it to print.

In the future, if you're just printing black and white, you can select "Print in Grayscale" from the print properties to just use the black ink cartridge, which will help the color cartridges to last longer.

Smudged printing. Ink cartridge just replaced.

This is a laser printer and does not have a print head to be cleaned. Fortunately it does have a laser cartridge that can easily be replaced and solve all of your problems : ) The replacement cartridge is a HP Q2613A or the high capacity HP Q2613X. Your local Cartridge World should have a high quality refilled cartridge that will treat you very well and save you money.

Wrong colour cartridges

Did you try the genuine HP cartridge? Maybe you should try first the original Ink Cartridge.
