Lift the cover up.

The ink jet carriage should park in the center of the carriage.

Gently lift on the front of the ink jet until it removes. Some you have to lift up and some you have to lift down on. Just be careful.

HP inkjet cartridges tell you on the front of the stick by a dot weather it is tri color or black.

try cleaning the contacts (bronze like) with dry cloth both the cartridge and the cartridge holder most of the times there exist some liquid forms on both areas. since you frequently remove the cartridges; their might be a broken part on the cartridge holder. the broken part, use, is to make sure the cartridge is in absolute contact with the cartridge holder's. the size the said broken part is 2 mm in all sides. so small that it has a big function.you dnt even recognize.

It is best for you to take time to a Hp Center. You will damage the cart if you try to take them out. Hp service center has special tools which they use to take the cart out. If you are really good to them they will even do it free for you. It will not take more than 10 mins for the job.

Thanks

When you click on "Print" and the window comes up, click on "Preferences".

Click on the "Color" tab. There should be an option to print in color or grayscale. Select "Color".

Probably bad, there's actually no way to check ink levels.

Here was the solution. You MUST use HP brand black cartridge. Originally I purchased a #94 Office Max brand black cartridge. After it did not work I took it back and they gave me a second Office Max brand and that did not work either. So I took it back and they sold me an HP brand (I only needed to pay the difference in price so Office Max was good to work with). I installed the HP #94 black cartridge and everything now works.

My printer isn't printing from the black ink cartridge -only color. I've replaced the black ink cartridge twice, so I know it isn't the cartridge.


Run a few "print-head-cleaning-cycles", to UNCLOG the ink-jets that should be spraying the black ink onto the paper.

Prints ok in color graphics, prints text in very light blue, barely readable


Check that the jets are clean as it sounds like there may be a restricted flow of ink - assuming that there is sufficient ink in the cartridge. Try printing the test picture in the HP Printer Asistant software. This requires black as well and a lack of black would show up. If the black cartridge is full and you suspect that the jets are blocked, try leeching the jets clean by pressing a piece of tissue paper over them. If that does not help stand the cartridge in a saucer of hot water for a while, wipe off the bottom of the cartridge and try it again. There is also a cartricge cleaning sequence in the HP Printer Assistant probram

Have new ink cartridges, however when I print a test page, nothing but the windows logo prints


You mean, the black color is completely absent from the printed page? Either the black cartridge is faulty and needs to be cleaned, or (less likely) the cartridge carriage is faulty.

Try running the "Printer Head Cleanup" routine from the printer manager maintenance menu.

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.

How to remove the top of the 952c to get to the ink reservoir.


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.
