Turn on the printer (the cartridges will not move without power to the printer) and open the front access door on the front right of the unit. Wait until the cartridge carrier comes to a full stop (idle and silent) in this opening. Press down lightly on the cartridge to be changed and then pull the cartridge out of the slot towards you.

Remove the new cartridge from the packaging and remove the tape that protects the contacts. Hold the cartridge by the black plastic; do not touch the electrical contacts or the nozzles. Hold the cartridge with the HP logo up on top and slide the cartridge into the slot until it snaps into place. (Color on the left and black on the right) When done changing the cartridges (if you need to do both), close the access door and wait for the unit to print an alignment page. Then scan the alignment page. If the alignment page doesn't print on its own. Press the Setup button (looks like a wrench) on the printer. Select Tools (left/right arrows) and press OK. Then select Align Cartridges and press OK. Put the alignment page face down on the glass so that the text is to the right of the unit. Then press OK.

HP has a video and detailed pictures of the cartridge replacement for the 4500 here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01952777&tmp_task=setupCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3919448&lang=en .

I hope this helps.

How do i find ink levels in Windows 8 for HP Office Jet J4580


It depends on what type of ink cartridge you have installed.....with HP genuine ink cartridges and HP Solution center installed, everything should be there. However, if you get an HP integrated ink cartridge refilled (i.e. HP 60, 61, 74, 75, 901, 92-98....currently offered at Costco or Frys today) or if you buy a remanufactured/compatible HP ink cartridge, the ink levels will not be displayed nor can they be reset (HP has a smart chip embedded within the nozzle plate at base of ink cartridge which counts the drops and then registers as empty).....so you'll just need to live with it and ignore 'ink low', 'non-genuine', 'counterfeit' messages and similar while you are using these types of aftermarket supplies. The first video below provides an overview of the 'low ink' phenomena.


NOTE: These types of 'SEVERE' cartridge errors (i.e. "refer to documentation" / "incompatible cartridges", "print cartridge(s) problem" etc.) typically indicates the internal micro-electronics of the HP #901 / 901XL cartridge are damaged. The cartridge's electrical wire runs at rear and lower side of the ink cartridge are very delicate and are somewhat susceptible to ink attack over time, which can lead to premature failures. In addition, the older the cartridge the higher the chance of an internal electrical failure. I suggest you first run a 'Tap 41' diagnostic test to check cartridges electrical health (this is a forced test); you may also bypass the error (temporarily) on all models which use HP 901 cartridges. Refer to Inkjet411 youtube videos below:

The exclamation mark is on and the screen is flickering hp j4580 officejet all in one


A flashing exclamation mark is typically associated with a sever cartridge error (i.e. "refer to documentation" / "incompatible cartridges", "print cartridge(s) problem" etc.) typically indicates the internal micro-electronics of the HP #901 / 901XL cartridge are damaged. Have you tried replacing the ink cartridge with a new HP genuine cartridge to confirm?

Hp officejet j4680, incompatible cartridge


It is not necessary to buy another cartridge my friend, you can repair it. let me show you how... just take a towel paper, pour some water on and slide the cartridge slowly on, repeat this action 3 times and then slide the cartridge on another towel paper without water slowly and get the cartridge back in the printer.
good luck

HP J4500 color cartridge error


Take the cartridge out and clean the contacts off with something (ie: pencil eraser, your thumb...) That worked for me! I couldn't find a solution anywhere even after chatting with online tech support from HP. Quick and painless! I hope this helps...

My hp officejet j4580 says incompatible black ink cartridge


I've been in print cartridge hell since I bought a J4580.

I spent an hour on chat with HP customer service and was able to resolve the problem by partially resetting the printer. Here's how:
  • Make sure your print cartridges are installed.
  • Unplug the machine, wait 20 seconds
  • Press and hold the # and 3 keys
  • Plug the machine back in
  • You'll see a reset message on the machine, release the # and 3 keys
  • Follow the prompts to set the language and location
Cross your fingers, hopefully your printer will print now!
