Hi, Just took mine apart.
Lift up the lid, and squeeze the clips on the supports, and pull the lid toward you. Lid slides off. Then look along both sides ( edge ) of the printer, you will see about 3 elongated holes. Push a small flat screwdriver through these to release the clips which hold on the grey trim around the edges.
Next slide the rear part of the trim to the left, to remove it. At this point you should undo the 4 hex screws that hold on the top ( the lid is attached to it by ribbon cable ). There are two at the front, two at the back ( the ones at the back are in 'tunnels' ).
Ribbon cable will unclip from the right side of the printer ( the circuit board ) and you can set the lid / top aside. The actual side of the printer simply hinge out. Everything else is fairly straightforward.

If you are not using HP ink cartridges you may have trouble. I was using Rapid Refill cartridges and had the same problem. I returned them and was told that a new chip has been installed in hp cartridges, so you need to make sure that the cartridges have this chip. Rapid Refill set me up and have not had any problems since.

Purchase a SDHC to USB media converter (e.g. SanDisk
M/N SDDR-113-A10M), which allows you to plug that SDHC
memory card into the printer via the USB port.

Fro our Fixya community:
Try holding down the OK, Cancel, Black, and Color buttons all at once. While holding them down, press the On button to power it off (You may need another person if you lack large, coordinated hands). Turn it back on while still holding the other buttons down. You will notice it turn itself off before "booting" fully. After it turns itself off, you can finally let go of those buttons and turn it back on normally. This will force a reset and system maintenance.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

This is an ink cartridge problem.
Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges
