Is the carriage stuck somewhere else or is it inside the access door? If it's somewhere else, you have to move the carriage to the right (towards the access door) manually and remove the cartridges. I wonder how you could install the wrong cartridge(s), the carriage should never accept it unless it's the correct cartridge (I don't think it's the wrong cartridge number, instead the installed one of the cartridges to the wrong holder).

Now you have to remove the cartridge forcefully, otherwise there's no another option to take it/them out from the carriage (holder), but first bring them to the cartridge access door.

I can't make this specific since you didn't mention the situation, whether just can't remove it or there's something more. If it's only that you jsut can't pull it out, try again, but note the position of the cartridge and make sure you pull out to the correct direction, otherwise you may damage the holder (will not break easily, so you need to apply more force).

Let me know if you need further help.

Forgot how to change ink

Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid that covers the print-mechanism.
In a few seconds, the cartridges will slide to a place where you can easily remove them, and insert a replacement cartridge.
Close the lid.

HP 5610 printer won't print

Unplug this beast. Take the old ink cartridge out and re-insert. Also, check for any other jammed papers that need to be removed. Then turn this beast back on. See if that does anything old chap.

My 5610 all in one series keeps telling me that there is a paper jam. I have checked and there is no paper jammed in the printer. It won't reset. It keeps saying paper jam. Help!

Check to make sure both ink cartridges are installed properly. I don't know why it says "paper jam" when the cartridges aren't properly installed, but it does.

Thanks for trusting me Arthur84

Bad News that you have put the wrong cartridge in the wrong slot.
If you call HP they will replace both the Cartridge and the All-In-One as this is not possible to take out the cartidge from the wrong slot.
But if it is possible please apply little more pressure and try to take the cartridge out from the slot and try replacing it to the right slot.
If your printer is still in warranty then you can get both the cartridge and the All-In-One Replaced for free, if not you may opt for the Out Of Warranty Upgrade option Through HP Tech Support.

Good Luck Arthur.
