If you go to this link http://support.radioshack.com/support_accessories/doc66/66491.pdf

You will find a copy of the operation manual for the Compaq a3000, on page 4 tells how to replace the cartridge...

With printer plugged in open small door in front, cartridges should move to a position that will let you remove them, pull the top of the cartridge first then the rest will come with it, just reverse this when installing the catridges...

Hope that helps

How to change the ink cartridge in a Canon iP1900 printer please


1•Protect your desk, printer stand or work surface by placing an old newspaper in front of or next to the printer. The newspaper will provide you with a place to work without getting ink anywhere you don't want it. It seems as though no matter how careful or neat you are, a little bit of ink always manages to escape when replacing an ink cartridge.
•2
Prepare the new ink cartridge for installation. Remove the replacement cartridge for your Canon printer from all of its packaging. You may need scissors to remove the heavy wrapper. Leave the protective orange cap or tape in place for now. Set the new cartridge aside on the newspaper.
•3
Remove the old ink cartridge from the Canon printer. With the printer on, open the front door or panel of the printer. Wait a second or two and the ink cartridge holder should move to the opening where it is accessible. If it does not move, shut the door, turn the printer off for a moment, turn it back on and try again. Lift the small lever that secures the ink cartridges within their holder. On most Canon printers, it is colored green and located on the right side of the ink cartridge holder. Gently lift the old ink cartridge out of the printer.
•4
Place the new ink cartridge in the printer. Remove the plastic cap or tape protecting the ink cartridge, being careful not to touch the black and gold "sensor" area of the cartridge. Gently but firmly push the new cartridge into the empty slot left where you removed the old ink cartridge. The label should be facing outward. You should feel the cartridge pop into place. Then push the lever back down that you lifted in Step 3. Close the printer door. Use paper towel or wet wipes to clean any ink from your hands.

How do I remove old ink from a phaser 8560? It is bargain ink (terrible) and we want to replace it with genuine Xerox.


You should be able to contact Xerox directly for information concerning ordering new ink cartridges As for removing existing cartridges, the lift hatch at the top of the unit allows access to the cartridges.

Says ink tank level low when it is still half full.Then will say out and still lot of ink in cart left yet.


This usually happens when you are using aftermarket inks. The sensors on the cartridges are not always up to specs. The problem does not occur on OEM cartridges.
Sometimes you can remove and reseat the same cartridge and the printer will resume. If the problem persists after trying the remove and reseat procedure, the cartridge should be replaced and the defective cartridge discarded.
If you are near an office supply that rebates for old cartridges and you are reloading your own cartridges, take the old cartridge in and replace it with an OEM cartridge so the problem doesn't repeat.
Hope this helps.
