To insert the ink cartridges, follow these steps.

1. Make sure that the printer is plugged in to an electrical outlet. Power on the device using the power button, and wait approximately 30 seconds for the printer to fully initialize.
2. Insert paper into the paper tray, as you will have to print an alignment page once the ink is installed.
3. Open the print cartridge door on the far right side of the printer. It opens downward.
4. Wait for the print carriage to move to the right side, aligning the ink with the cartridge opening.
5. The tri-color print cartridge is on the left and the black is on the right. Lightly press down on the empty ink cartridge to remove it.
6. Remove the packaging from the new ink cartridge, including the plastic pull tab covering the metal connectors.
7. Slide the new cartridge forward into the empty slot, then gently push forwards on the upper part of the cartridge until it clicks into the slot. Repeat for the other cartridge if necessary.
8. Close the print cartridge door. An alignment sheet will print with instructions for scanning it.

For more information, here is the link to the C3180 manual. Information about replacing an ink cartridge begins in section 7.

For this particular printer, there are two slots, one with a green triangle and another with 2 different shapes. The left one is for colour and the right for black ink.
First you want to pull the desired cartridge out by putting a finger on both top and bottom and it should literally slide out (if it doesn't first time lift it up slightly first). Save the cartridge for future refill and the cartridge you want to put in you hold the same way and again from the bottom just literally slide it in. You should be able to click it in once it is all the way - this indicates it is in correctly, the printer should now run a test print

Region codes for France for a photosmart c3180 all in one


Well I had the exact same problem with a C3180 bought in the USA and I moved to France. I called the HP tech support and after I bought 5 brand new cartridges upon their recommendation we haven't been able to print the 10 tap test page

I recommend that you try doing that before you call them otherwise you will be wasting your time

To print the 10 tap test page you need to press simultaneously CANCEL and START COLOR COPY. I couldn't print the 10 tap test page because the printer will not recognize the cartridges bought in France (START COLOR COPY and START BLACK COPY blinking + E in front of COPIES)

If somebody knows an alternate method to print the 10 tap test page, please share it as this is the blocking point with HP support

Thanks

I'm trying to scan in a document and then fax it using HP Photosm


Unlike most scanners, you must put the page that you want to copy in lower right corner of the glass (notice the small arrow pointing to the corner). This should fix any problem with an image being cut off. As far as faxing, I don't think the C3180 is able to fax pages. Hope this helps

Change regional code from europe to us for hp Photosmart C3180


Currently, it's a very convoluted process involving a phone call to HP tech support. Unless things have changed, you are also restricted to changing the region code 3 times over the lifetime of the printer. Having said that...see this page here at FixYa:

http://www.fixya.com/support/t465196-change_region_codess_printer_hp_c3180

HP Tech Support number is: 1-800-474-6836
