In most machines there is a maintenance key - press the start and the other key together- as the ink cartridges will come to the center for the replacement.
If not you can manually do the change , the if there are errors of ink detection, remove printer, un-install driver, the reinstall and connect printer.

If yours is an Epson printer, push the cartridge change button on the front panel twice. The ink carriage will retreat to the extreme right hand side. When you have loaded the new cartridge (s) push the same button twice. After a while the carriage will prime the new cartridge, the green light will come on and you may print. Other printers: For HP, open the lid with the power on. If all else fails,m I pull the plug. manually move the carriage, change the cartridge and re-power. Always try pushing the cartridge change button on the front panel first, however.

Have just unpacked new HP Photosmart C4200 All-in-One Cannot get machine to accept cartidges which werre supplied with the printer


NOTE: The product must be on before you can insert the print cartridges.
  1. Open the print cartridge door. Figure 7: Opening the print cartridge door c00880893.jpg
  2. Make sure the print carriage moves to the right. If it does not move to the right, turn the device off, then turn it back on again.
  3. Open the packaging and remove the tape from both cartridges. Figure 8: Removing the tape c00880894.jpg CAUTION: Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or re-tape the cartridges.
  4. Hold the cartridges with the HP logo on top.
  5. Insert tri-color cartridge in the left cartridge slot and the black cartridge in the right cartridge slot . Figure 9: Inserting the print cartridges c00880895.jpgc00880896.jpg

Align the print cartridges at any other time by using the software installed with the product. Aligning the print cartridges ensures high-quality output. NOTE: If a print cartridge is removed and reinserted, the product will not prompt for an alignment. The product memory retains the alignment values for that print cartridge. Follow these steps to align newly installed print cartridges.
  1. When prompted, make sure that plain, white letter or A4 paper is loaded in the input tray, and then press the button next to OK . The alignment page prints.
  2. Lift the lid. Place the top of the alignment page face-down on the front, right corner of the scanner glass. Figure 10: Placing the alignment page c00880898.jpg
  3. Close the lid.
  4. Press the button next to OK . When the On button stops flashing, the alignment is complete and the page can be removed.

Installed black print cartridge will not print now?


nope, there should be no tape on the cartridge. This is preventing the ink from coming out.
