    I need to know how to remove the old leaking black and tri-color cartridges on
    my HP DeskJet 952C printer and replace them with new HP 45 black and
    HP 78 tri-color cartridges. Do I open up the top cover, or are they located on
    the back? I have looked and poked at parts that LOOK moveable on either
    side of the top, but they didn't budge. I did not want to break anything. I'm
    sure it was meant to be done more easily. Please advise.

HP 952c = Deskjet Printer
Like ALL HP deskjets of this design:
Turn Printer ON (allow for test cycle), then lift top hinged panel.
Print cartridges will be parked in protected area to the right.
When top panel is lifted, they will move out for easy access.
They will NOT move out if printer is OFF.
So Please turn ON as first step.
Best to install new cartridges as opposed to cleaning.
If cleaning, utilize software option for clogged cartridges.
If they are leaking, replace them with new cartridges.
All this is available on HP web site.

My printer is saying the ink reservoir is full and won't work. How do I empty the reservoir so I can resume use?


It's a shop repair when you get that error. There is no reservoir. It's a set of pads covering the whole bottom of the printer. It requires complete disassembly to remove the print engine and replace the pads and then access to the service mode to reset the counter. There are methods here to reset the counter but you risk ink overflow that ruins the printer and all that the ink leaks on.

Ink cartridges will not slide due to leaking ink underthe printer


Sorry to hear about the mess. Let's start with the clean up of the ink. Use a dry cloth or paper towel to wipe up the ink that has spilled out of the cartridge. Wipe gently so you don't do any damage to the internal components of your printer. The ink will likely color the inside of your printer - That's okay. Just make sure you get anything that puddles. It should not look wet.

On to the non-moving cartridge carrier. The standard fix for this is to do a hard reset on the printer. Follow these steps.

1. Unplug the power cord and remove the paper from the paper tray.
2. Move the carriage all the way to the right, close the lid and reconnect the power cord.
3. The printer will make some noise as it starts back up. Wait until it stops making noise.
4. Open the printer lid. The carriage should return to its normal position.
5. Try printing again.

If this does not work, then damage has been done to the internal components. You will need to get the printer serviced by a repair person.

Ink leaking problem


There should be a waste bin and it may need to be cleaned. It is like a sponge and absorbs excess ink. It can be removed and cleaned with water. Let it dry fully before putting it back in. This is a messy task so you may want to wear some rubber gloves.

Hope this helps.
