How to change the ink cartridge


Follow these instructions when you need to replace print cartridges.

• Everyday printing: Use a black cartridge along with a tri-color cartridge.
• Color photos: Use a photo cartridge along with a tri-color cartridge.
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 when you try to remove them.
2. Make sure you have letter or A4 unused plain white paper loaded in the input tray.
3. Open the print cartridge door.
The print carriage moves to the far right side of the HP All-in-One.
4. 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.
1 Print cartridge slot for the tri-color print cartridge
2 Print cartridge slot for the black and photo print cartridges
5. Pull the print cartridge towards you out of its slot.
6. 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.
7. 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.
1 Copper-colored contacts
2 Plastic tape with pink pull tab (must be removed before installing)
3 Ink nozzles under tape
CAUTION: Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles. Also, do
not re-tape the print cartridges. Doing so can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad
electrical connections.
8. Hold the print cartridge with the HP logo on top, and insert the new print cartridge into
the empty cartridge slot. Make sure you push the print cartridge in firmly until it snaps
into place.
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.
9. Close the print cartridge door.greatcir.png

Cartridge problem


Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Follow these instructions when the ink level is low.

Note When the ink level for the print cartridge is low, a message appears on

your computer screen. You can also check the ink levels by using the software

installed with the HP All-in-One.

When you receive a low-ink warning message, make sure you have a replacement

print cartridge available. You should also replace the print cartridges when you see

faded text or if you experience print quality issues related to the print cartridges.

To order print cartridges for the HP All-in-One, go to www.hp.com/learn/suresupply. If

prompted, choose your country/region, follow the prompts to select your product, and

then click one of the shopping links on the page.

For a list of print cartridge numbers, see the back cover of this guide.

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 center 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.
