Re: I replaced the ink cartridge now ink is sqirting...
What has happened is that there is a "Seal" that sits under the Ink Cartridge when at rest, I suggest that somehow it isn't doing it's job, perhaps it has been dislodged somehow or sometimes they go all hard and don't do the "Soaking Up" of the excess ink. Either that or the ink cartridge's seal is faulty?

Try to re-seat the cartridges into the printer. Remove both cartrdiges > . pull out the power supply (black box where the
power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer) and put it back after 30
seconds > firmly re-insert the cartridges. Let it print the alignment page.
If the display screen shows "low black ink" again, then try to replace the black cartridge. The printer requires all cartridges to have sufficient ink in them to continue printing. Try to replace your black ink with a new one, preferably a genuine cartridge.

Installing a new print cartridge
Follow the steps below to install a print cartridge.
Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape using the pull tab.
Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles. Touching these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.
Figure 4: HP 20 print cartridge
With the cartridge compartment cover open, insert the print cartridge into the print cartridge cradle with the contacts facing into the unit. When the cartridge is seated in the print cartridge cradle, push the top of the cartridge towards the back of the unit until the print cartridge clicks into place.
Figure 5: Inserting a new print cartridge1 - Insert the print cartridge into the print cartridge cradle2 - Push the top of the cartridge until it clicks into placeNOTE:
If the cartridge moves loosely in the carrier, it has not clicked into place. Repeat this step.
Close the cartridge compartment cover and control panel.
Press the Start/Enter button.
On the keypad, press 1 if the replacement print cartridge is new or 2 if the replacement print cartridge is old.
When you put in a new cartridge, you must choose 1: New .When you put in a used cartridge, choose 2: Used . This helps you to check the correct amount of ink you have left.
I can suggest you one thing. If you can't do it yourself, get a friend who can.
Make a small hole (using a drill) in a new cartridge. This hole should directly go to the ink cartridge. (Make sure you don't spill ink everywhere!)
Make a similar hole in the old cartridge.
Take a syringe and pull out some ink from the new cartridge.
Put it into the old cartridge.
If you can see the ink level, fill about half of the old cartridge this way.
Close both holes.
Now use the old cartridge in the printer!
(You can repeat this process whenever the old cartridge runs out of ink).
If you need to replace an ink cartridge in your printer, please follow the
To confirm which ink cartridge requires replacement,
please use the printer's control panel (there is a black ink out indicator, as
well as a color ink out indicator ), or the Status Monitor in your computer.
Red light flashing - Low ink Red light solid - Out of ink
Open the printer cover and press the INK (Cleaning) button for 3 seconds. The
print head moves to the center and the lights flash. 2. Lift up the ink
cartridge clamp. The cartridge rises up from its holder. 3. Remove the
cartridge and dispose of it carefully. If ink gets on your hands, wash them with
soap and water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water.
4. Unpack the new ink cartridge and remove the yellow tape. You must remove
the yellow tape from the top of the cartridge. Do not remove the clear seal
underneath the cartridge. Do not touch the green circuit board on the back of
the cartridge, or you may inhibit normal operation and printing. 5. Tilt the
new cartridge toward you slightly as you insert it. Lower the cartridge so that
the tabs rest on the hooks. Do not place the cartridge tabs under the hooks.
6. Press down firmly on the ink cartridge clamp until it snaps in place.
7. If you need to replace the other ink cartridge, repeat steps 2 through 6
before continuing with step 8 (to move printhead over to color (if black was
replaced first) press the cleaning button once). 8. Press the INK (Cleaning)
button once, and close the printer cover. The printer begins charging the ink
delivery system. 9. Wait until ink charging is finished (the power light
stops flashing and the red error light goes out).
If the cartridges are old too this may be a problem. When ink gets old it can clog the cartridges. If they are old replace them with new ones. If they are new ones did you peel the protective covering off before you inserted the cartridges?
Hopes this helps
