So you need to replace a cartridge in your
HP Printer. Let’s walk through the steps together. The first thing we want to do is turn the
printer on, so press the Power button. Next, lift the top cover of the printer.
The carriage will then move to the center of the printer.
On the front of the cartridge, push the release tab inward to unlatch the cartridge. You can
now remove the cartridge out of the carriage. To install the new cartridge, you must first
remove the plastic wrap. It is very important that you use the orange
pull tab to remove the plastic. This will properly expose the vent slot in the top of
the cartridge. After all the plastic has been removed you
then need to remove the orange plastic cap from the cartridge.
Place the cartridge in one hand and the orange cap in the other and then twist the cap off.
Substantial force may be necessary to remove the cap.
Once the orange cap is removed, place the new cartridge into the slot and gently push
down until it snaps into place. Make sure that each cartridge is in the correct
slot. Match the color and the shape of the cartridge to the corresponding color and shape
that are on the print head. When the new cartridges are in, close the
top cover of the printer. Your printer is now ready for regular use.
