I can't install my cartridge in my Deskjet 3512.


Turn the printer on.
Load paper into the paper input tray.
Open the cartridge door (located on the front of the printer), look for the recessed area, grab the built in handle (part of the recessed area) and pull forward.
Once the door is open, the cartridges will automatically move to the center position.
To change a cartridge, pull the top, front of the cartridge down, it will move to a 45 deg position. Then just pull out.
Open the new cartridge box, take the cartridge out of the wrapper, pull the tab to remove the tape covering the electrical contacts, (make certain you don't touch the contacts or ink nozzles), install the new cartridge (color on left, black on right), slide it into the holder and press up on the top, back until it latches into place. Then close the door.
The printer will print a test page. Once printed, take the alignment page it printed and put on the scanner glass (corner to top, right, see the guide printed there). Close the scanner lid and press the OK on the control panel. the printer will now align the print heads based on the page it printed. Once done, press OK again. Done.

I don't know how to refill?


Refilling HP color printer ink cartridges saves money and time spent running to the store to find the right ink cartridge, which sometimes is out of stock. By having the refill kits for the HP ink cartridge, you can just refill the cartridge when the ink runs out. The refilling process is easy to do and anyone can do it in a few minutes. The ink kits come with directions and all the colors one will need to refill the ink cartridge.

1.Place a piece of paper towel on a flat surface. Remove the empty ink cartridge from the printer. To do this, open the cover and wait for the ink dispenser to move the ink to the open door. Lift up the tap that holds the ink cartridge in place and pull out the cartridge. Push the tap holder back down and close the cover.
2.Place the ink cartridge on the paper towel. Gather the ink refilling kit together with directions and place the ink jars on the paper towel along with the syringe needle.
3.Find the indents on the top of the empty ink cartridge. Poke these holes open with the pen. Sit the cartridge down and open the ink containers. The colors are yellow, cyan and magenta.
4.Read the directions to see where each color goes in the ink cartridge. Insert the syringe needle into the ink container and raise the stopper up until you have the recommended amount of ink to fill into the particular hole.
5.Insert the needle into the hole on the ink cartridge and slowly dispense it into the cartridge. Remember to go slow with this step. If you see the ink oozing out, stop filling and wipe with a paper towel.
6.Cover the holes with the tabs that come in the refill kit or you can use tape. Make sure the hole is sealed to prevent spilling or the ink drying up. Then replace the ink cartridge back into the holder in the printer.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

I don't have the manual and the red light is on. Is that the toner needing replacing and how do I do it?


Here are the things that a steady red light may indicate (from the Owner's Manual):

led-erroron17.jpg A paper jam has occurred. To solve the problem, see "Clearing Jams in the Paper Tray". The front cover is open. Close the front cover. The top cover is open. Close the top cover. The paper tray is empty. Load paper in the tray. See "Loading Paper". A toner cartridge is not installed. Install a toner cartridge. See "Installing the Starter Toner Cartridge".
• A paper jam has occurred. Check the paper tray area.
• The front cover is open. Close the front cover.
• The top cover is open. Close the top cover.
• The paper tray is empty. Load paper in the tray.
• A toner cartridge is not installed. Install a toner cartridge.

How to refill the ink?


There is no ink......the Thermal paper is sensitive to heat and turns black when it is heated.

If you use thermal paper the printer heats the paper to create your printed message. Some of these papers are side sensitive so be sure to feed it in right side up!

Green light flashing wont print


Many possible issues:
1) the cover is open (close cover)
2) Out of paper (add paper)
3) printer can't pick up media (change media, change printer print mode setting or paper type selection)
4) Paper jam (remove all media from the paper trays, press the power button once, remove the back cover and pull the jammed paper from that point then close the cover, reload the paper and try to print)
5) Problem with the cartridge (remove the cartridges and then reinsert them, try a cleaning cycle. Alternatively manually clean the cartridges (remove them from the printer and power down and unplug the unit). Use distilled or bottled water and cotton swabs. Slightly moisten the swab and wipe the face, edges of the cartridges - do not touch the contacts or nozzles. Wipe down the underside of the print cartridge cradle walls. Reinsert the cartridges, close the cover and power up the unit. Calibrate the cartridges. If this doesn't help, replace the cartridges.)
6) Loss of electrical contact between the carriage connections (press and hold the power button and open and close the top cover 4 times. Look at the resulting self-test print out. Remove and reinsert the cartridges and try to print. Next clean the cartridges and cartridge cradle as above. Replace the cartridges.)

I hope one of these solutions work. Otherwise the printer needs service.

It prints in color,but not in black whith a new cartrige.i tryed whith the old one,same result.


I had the same issue and resolved it this way:

- go to Start/Printers and Faxes
- right click the printer
- select Printing Preferences
- choose Inkjet Paper as the Media Type

Mine was set to Plain Paper. I'm not sure if it "magically" changed when I changed the cartridges but setting it to Inkjet Paper did the trick.

I did this after replacing all the cartridges and reinstalling the printer. Try this first and save yourself the money of the cartridges and the hassle of reinstalling.

Printer changing color of paper


Make sure the transfer belt is clean. Also check the magenta cartridge and see if it isn't leaking slightly. By all means DON"T blow it out with compressed air! You may use a toner vacuum or a soft cloth to clean out any residual toner. If that doesn't do the trick, you may have a contaminated fuser. By the way, do you get the same effect when printing black and white?

PAPER JAM


SUGGESTION #1 The print carriage might be jammed. Follow these steps to correct the problem:
  1. With the power on, lift the print cartridge access door. The print carriage should move to the access area located on the right. If the print carriage stays all the way left, reset the unit by unplugging the then plugging in the power cord. If the carriage still does not move to the right, continue with the steps below.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the all-in-one.
  3. Remove both print cartridges.
  4. Push the print carriage slightly to the left and then to the right to verify that the print carriage is not jammed. If the print carriage will not move, check for obstructions under and around the carriage.
  5. Close the print cartridge access door.
  6. Plug in the power cord.
  7. When the " Insert Print Cartridges " message displays, open the print cartridge access door and insert the print cartridges. Verify that both cartridges are seated correctly and lock into position.
SEGGUSTION #2 cleaning rollers Over time dust and paper fibers will accumulate on the paper feed rollers. This can cause paper feed problems. Follow the steps below to clean the rollers: Figure 3: Paper feed rollers c00212278.jpg
  1. Turn off the all-in-one and unplug the power cord.
  2. Remove the rear access door (as describe above in this document).
  3. Clean each roller using a clean lint-free cloth lightly moistened with water (distilled water preferred). Rotate the rollers to clean the entire surface.
  4. Verify that the paper feed rollers on the rear access door are clean and rotate easily.
  5. Re-seat the rear access door.
  6. Plug in the power cord and turn on the all-in-one.
If these suggestions don't fix the problem feel free to write back to me. Try to be a little more specific i.e does paper feed properly, error message shows with paper/without paper or both, do any of the lights flash when this happens, have you tried diiferent paper sizes ot types. Have you taken it apart to check for any obstructions?
