Question about HP Photosmart D7160 InkJet Printer
How do you open the cover on the right side? i am pushing on the two plastic tabs on the bottom of the printer (is it ok to turn the printer on the side to work on it?) and pushing on them with a screw driver, but it is not opening easily. thanks so much
Ryan here again,
Just want to thank UPRon...the fix involving removing the side, powering up with the unplugged ribbon cable and going through the button hitting rigmarole, then powering back up and then going through the 2nd rigmarole of menu/buttons worked!!! Cover went back on easy enough and my D7160 is rolling nicely again. After that sequence of buttons I feel like I should have some free lives on Mario Brothers or though?
Thanks for the good info UPRon...
Good luck all.

Have not tried the reset yet, but just got the cover off...it is a 2 screwdriver operation/plastic tab. You need to get one small screwdriver underneath the bit of metal holding the plastic tab back, so that you screwdriver handle is facing out beyond the edge of the base of the unit. Then while applying just enough lever pressure to get the plastic catch lower than the metal holding it back, take your 2nd screwdriver to the plastic nub side to pry/push it outward while still holding the tab to clear the metal with screwdriver 1...it''ll bang the plastic up a bit, but I had success w/no breakage. There are some internal tabs too(plastic on plastic), but with firm and slightly anxious pressure those released w/out breakage too...good luck. I'll make another post if this reset procedure works for me..wish me luck? I want to put a boot betwixt the buttocks of HPs corporate management...total bs for a 300 and some dollar machine with 70 buck worth of new ink. Ryan
