Depends on the printer. If it's the "all in one", then usually you'd lift up the lid + scanner to get access. For the older and single function printers, you'd lift up the access flap. The holder for the catridges will position themselves so they are accessable. Which printer do you have?

Instructions

1

Select the ink cartridge specific to your printer. Canon inks are versatile, so your selection may be as simple as choosing between black, color or a multi-pack with black and color cartridges.
2

Turn on your Canon printer. The switch is generally located on the top right hand side of the printer. Open the printer's lid.
3

Wait a moment. The cartridge carrier will automatically disengage.
4

Put your hand behind the existing ink cartridge and pull the cartridge towards you until it pops out. Dispose of or recycle the used cartridge.
5

Carefully pull the tape off the new cartridge.
6

Position the new cartridge into the cartridge carrier. Make sure it is facing the correct position.
7

Press the cartridge carrier gently until it clicks into place. Some cartridges have indicators to demonstrate that they are properly positioned.
8

Close the printer's lid. Print a test page to ensure everything is working properly.

My HP Officejet Pro 8000 Printer will not print red, even though I just put a new ink cartridge in. The yellow & blue work fine. Help!


Try to uninstall and re-install the printer's software for this can be software issues. If that would not work try to remove and put back in the ink cartridge properly. If this would not work check warranty then call the printer's manufacturer.

My printer is not printing anything orange, it comes out pink. Just put in new cartridges.


It sounds like your yellow is not printing correctly (probably a clogged nozzle). If your printer has separate cartridges, replace the yellow. If you are using aftermarket cartridges, you should try using OEM cartridges since they are spec'd to the printer. If you are usng aftermarket or reloaded cartridges, the ink may not be up to specs. In any case the yellow ink cartridge needs to be replaced. Make sure to run a deep cleaning and alignment after replacing the cartridge.

The power button keeps flashing on hp deskjet F4180. I've done just about everything to get this to work. It is almost like the ink cartridge holder isn't working properly. When I open the door to put in...


Also another thing to try is to unplug the printer because sometimes printers hold jobs even if you clear them from the computer so unplugging it is sorta like doing a hard reboot on the computer.
When you plug it in the ink cartidge should move.

I need to know how to refill my ink in my printer


Hi lisa40447,

It really depends on the make and model of your printer. But I would strongly go against refilling the ink cartridge because there is a very big possibility that you can damage your printer if you keep reusing a cartridge that has used up its life. The big problem with this is that the ink usually leaks out or "bleed" when cartridges are refilled and in turn this damages components inside the printer.

It's still a better option to just buy new ink catridges for your printers, since it is more expensive if the printer gets damaged due to usage of refilled ink cartridges.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

I replaced my hp ink catridges and the printer is still saying the ink is empty. What do I do?


You haven't mentioned what printer model but you can try th following.
Firstly, try removing your new cartridge and temporarily putting the old one back. Sometimes this will then show as a full cartridge even though it is empty, because the sensor electronics appears to get confused. Next, turn off your printer and turn it back on again, then take the old cartridge out and put the new one back. I cannot guarantee this will work, but it will be worth a try.

Lexmark x3430 need ink cartriage


This is the only information I could find. Didn't your printer come with a black and color ink cartridge? If it did, all you need to do is take the ink cartridge out and write down the numbers written on the cartridge. The only ink cartridge I could positively confirm was the #24 color ink cartridge. The Lexmark website does not list any black ink cartridges for this model. This information was obtained from Officemax.com.
Lexmark - 24 Ink Cartridge - Color
Compatible with Lexmark Z1400 series, X3500 series and X4500 series printers;
Lexmark - 23 Ink Cartridge - Black
Compatible with Z1400 series, X3500 series and X4500 series printers;

My printer will not print.


Is there a cable physically connecting the printer to the computer? If so, do you see the printer in Printers and Faxes?
