  2. Click Settings , point to Print Settings , and then click Printer Toolbox .
  3. After the Printer Toolbox opens, click the Estimated Ink Level tab.

WARNING: If the HP all-in-one is off when the print-carriage access door is lifted to access the print cartridges, the HP all-in-one will not release the cartridges for changing. Damage may occur to the HP all-in-one if the print cartridges are not docked safely on the right side when you try to remove them.

  3. When the print carriage is idle and silent, press down on the end of each cartridge to snap it out of the carriage. If replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. If replacing the black or photo cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right. c00228293.jpg 1 - Print cartridge slot for the tri-color print cartridge 2 - Print cartridge slot for the black and photo print

  6. 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. CAUTION: Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles.

How to change ink in HP Deskjet F480 printer???


  • Check the ink levels by opening the HP Solution Center. Click on "Settings." Click on "Toolbox." Click on "Services." Click on "Service this device." Click on "Estimated Ink Levels." A graphic will appear showing the estimated ink level in each cartridge.
  • 2 Verify that the unit is on. Open the print cartridge door allowing the print carriage to move to the far right side of the unit. Once the print carriage has stopped, lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot. To replace the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. To replace the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right. Place the cartridge in a plastic bag as it may still contain some residual ink and may leak.
  • 3 Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging. Remove the plastic tape by using the pull tab, being careful to not touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink nozzles under tape.
  • 4 Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Gently push the upper part of the print cartridge until it clicks into place. The tri-color print cartridge fits into the left slot. The black or photo print cartridge fits into the right slot.
  • 5 Close the print cartridge door. If the print cartridge alignment sheet prints, load it on the left front corner of the scanner glass with the top of the page to the left. Verify that there is plain paper loaded in the input tray, and then press the "Scan" button to align the printer.

    New color ink cartridge does not print red. reason?


    Hi,

    Here is my advice:

    Step one: Run the clean print cartridges utility

    1.
    Press the Setup button.
    2.
    Press the down arrow key.
    3.
    Select Clean Print Cartridge and then press OK . The device prints a test page.
    4.
    Examine the test page. If the print quality of the page is good, stop here. If the print quality is bad, go on to the next step for further cleaning.
    5.
    Open the Printer Toolbox . There are two ways to do this:
    *
    Open HP Solution Center , select the Settings menu, then the Print Settings submenu, and finally the Printer Toolbox .
    *
    Open Printers and Faxes in the Windows Control Panel , then right-click your printer icon and choose Properties . Click Printing Preferences . Click the Features tab, then click the Printer Services button.
    6.
    The Printer Toolbox opens. On the Device Services tab, click Clean the Print Cartridges , then follow the on-screen instructions. Up to three levels of cleaning are available. Discard or recycle the page that prints.

    Step two: Replace the problem cartridge (you probably have a defective cartridge)
    If a cartridge replacement was not tried previously to solve this problem, replace the problem cartridge now

    Cause and prevention
    Color mix is usually caused by a material touching the nozzles. Ink can wick along the material and travel from nozzle to nozzle. When different colors of ink mix in this way, the result is muddy, inaccurate colors.
    Missing colors occur when the cartridge nozzles dry out, or when a color is exhausted because of specific printing demands.

    *
    Do not remove the protective tape from a new print cartridge until just before you install it. Once you remove the tape, do not reapply it.
    *
    After you have removed the protective tape, do not allow anything to touch the nozzles.
    *
    Print at least once a month to keep the print cartridges in good working order.
    *
    Always turn the printer off by pressing the button on the printer control panel, rather than by unplugging the printer. Turning the printer off properly allows it to protect the cartridges.
    *
    If you are removing a cartridge from the printer temporarily (for instance, removing the black cartridge in order to install the photo cartridge), put it in a cartridge protector.
    *
    If you do not have a cartridge protector and need to remove a cartridge temporarily, put it in an airtight plastic tub. Make sure nothing touches the nozzles. Do not use a plastic bag. If you intend to store print cartridges in a tub for a long period of time, place color cartridges with the nozzles down, and black cartridges with the nozzles up. Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

    Don't know how to install ink


    Installing print cartridges
    1 Open the printer, and then press down on the cartridge carrier levers.
    2 Remove the used print cartridge or cartridges.
    3 If you are installing new print cartridges, remove the tape from the back and bottom of the color cartridge, insert the cartridge in the right carrier, and then close the color cartridge carrier lid.

    Warning—Potential Damage: Do not touch the gold contact area on the back or the metal nozzles on the bottom of the cartridge.

    4 If a black cartridge is included in the box contents, remove the tape from the back and bottom of the black cartridge, insert the cartridge in the left carrier, and then close the black cartridge carrier lid.

    5 Close the printer, making sure to keep your hands out from underneath the scanner unit.

    Removing a used print cartridge

    1 Make sure the printer is on.
    2 Lift the scanner unit.
    The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the printer is busy.
    3 Press down on the cartridge carrier latch to raise the cartridge carrier lid.
    4 Remove the used print cartridge.

    Note: If you are removing both cartridges, repeat step 3 and step 4 for the second cartridge.

    Printer stopped printing colour


    Are you using Name brand ,new ink cartridges?
    Take the color cartridges out and make sure you removed the tape from the bottom of those cartridges. if done already take a wet paper towel and squeeze out the excess water, then lay the damp paper towel folded in half on a flat surface.
    Then set the colored in cartridges one at a time with the ink side pressing against the damp paper towel for about 3 min. after 3 min you should see the ink drain on to the paper towel if so then replace the cartridge back into the printer and that should solve your problem.

    Can't print color


    Just a thought, have you removed the tape on the top of the cartridge which allows the ink to flow, removing the tape allows air to be sucked through the cartridge.

    Another thing you could do, is take all the cartridges out of the machine , remove the printhead from machine, then use a tissue and dab the bottom of the printhead, to see if ink is coming out. If not place ink cartridges on the printhead and place a vacuum cleaner hose on the bottom of the printhead and turn it on, this will force ink through the printhead. Dab Printhead again to see if any ink is there, if not try again. Place back in printer and try printing
