The additional plastic object is used when storing the photo ink cartridge. It helps prevent damage to the print head and helps keep the ink from drying up and clogging the ink jets. After printing photos you will probably want to remove the photo ink cartridge and re-install the black ink cartridge for normal everyday use. Insert the photo ink cartridge into the additional plastic object when the cartridge is not being used.

Maybe you've already tried this, but here's the instructions from the HP website, with pictures.

It sounds like you removed the plastic object and protective tape, but can't get the cartridge to sanp in place. Be careful not to touch the the corner where the tape had been. Slide the cartridge at a "Slight upward angle" to get the leading bottom edge in.

Hope this helps,

PRINTER 5440, POOR PRINT QUALITTY HAS GONE FROM GREAT TO BARELY LEGIBLE, FAIRLY NEW CARTRIGAGES


Depending on the age of the printer, the service staion may need to be cleaned. The service station is where the cartridges "park" when they are not in use. Over time ink can collect in this area and therefore the ink cartridges do not get a thorough cleaning. I would go to HP's website and look for cleaning instructions for your printer model. Hope this helps

Have you checked (Right click on printer name) "Printing Preferences", "Color"?

"Print in Grayscale" and "Black Print Cartridge Only" should be Unchecked.

Hope this gets it...

HP deskjet printer compatible ink cartridges


They will not work. Although they may look similiar and may even fit into the cartridge holder. The internal circuitry is different and will not be read correctly by the printer. If they are all brand new or unopened, there is always ebay.

Never use alcohol, instead use distilled water or just water...
Seems like your cartridge need to be changed, maybe is very old in production date and ink is no more so fluid.
