The above answer may have been sufficient enough, but it was confusing for me. So to supplement that, here's a way I used when I replaced my cartridges.

This page on the HP website: Setting Up the All-in-One HP Officejet 4215
Scroll down to "Step Five: Install the Cartridges"

Just turn your printer on. Lift up the cartridge access door on the right side. Remove the tape off of the cartridge (if you haven't already). Then slide it into the compartment. (make sure it's locked into there)...

Hope this helps somebody...

Since you posted this query back in August, I hope you managed to find the answer by now, but just in case you didn't, I'll respond.

As silly as it seems, I can't seem to find a simple set of instructions about how to change your ink cartridges on Other printer product help pages has this instruction but not for your product (or I don't know how to search for it).

That said, the instructions are included in the following web page:

How to resolve noisy print carriage issues

Again, I hope you haven't been waiting all this time for the answer to your question. In case you lost your printer's user manual, you can download another for free in PDF format from There should be instructions in the manual that tell you how to perform basic tasks:

User Manual

Good luck.

After replacing the ink cartridges, my son started to show me how to do it and took out the colour cartridge and showed me how to put it back, it now shows no ink, we have gone to trouble shoot and it say...

The reset button is actually the stop button or to put it another way the round red button with an upside down red triangle in it.. basically the chip in the cartridge made the machine register a cartridge has been installed but after you took it out and put it back in again the machine knew that another cartridge had been fitted but it could not reset itself so it asked you to....

Hp deskjet 5150 just replaced both

I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. 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

Replace ink cartridge

Took printer back- power up and take all carts out in sequence that would not register, then put them back in sequence- works fine now! At one time you could not do this with Epsons but it seems you can do so now. Printer happy- me happy- £50 worse off as bought another set of ink carts so I won't get caught out again with no ink. However given one black cart for my trouble so happy again.

Please clean the copper contacts of the cartridges with dry cloth and then check the expiry date and ink level present in the cartridges.

If the cartridges are expired or out of ink, replace the cartridges and check for the result.

If the cartridges are not expired and not out of ink then insert the cartridges and check for the results, if the issue persists recycle the printer and then reset the printer.

Installed new Color Print Cartridge, even old one won't work now, something came loose?

I work for the State of Alabama IT dept. and we have plenty of the 6540's in use. A very common problem I see every other week with these printers is the wire "spring" which is clearly visible when you remove the ink cartridge, will come loose and puncture through the data ribbon behind the ink cartridge. Examine the data ribbon for any signs of damage such as a hole or tear. If it has been damaged, the printer will definitely have some kind of error with that ink cartridge slot.

I believe there should be a recall on this model, as there is a small piece of plastic (that holds the wire spring in place) that frequently breaks. This flimsy plastic retaining piece has been reinforced on the newer 6900 series printers.

Printing photos

its ok I solved it! I didn't realise that all the photo cartridge does is gloss over the colour picture produced by the colour cartridge. I simply had to replace the colour cartridge which had run out, so now its all working perfectly!!
