Install the ink cartridges

  1. Make sure that all packing material has been removed from inside the printer and the power is turned on.
  2. Raise the printer cover.

  3. Remove the pink tape from the cartridge.
    NOTE:HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. Printer service or repairs required as a result of printer failure or damage attributable to the use of non-HP ink will not be covered under warranty.

    NOTE:Do not touch or remove the ink nozzles or copper-colored contacts, or retape the cartridges.

  4. If you are replacing an HP Black, HP Photo, or HP Gray Photo cartridge, push down and pull outward on the cartridge in the right stall to remove it.
  5. Hold the new cartridge with the HP label facing up. Slide the cartridge at a slight upward angle into the right stall so the copper-colored contacts go in first. Gently push the cartridge until it snaps into place.

    CAUTION:To avoid print carriage jams, make sure the print cartridge snaps securely into place as you insert it.

  6. Repeat the previous steps to install the HP Tri-color cartridge in the left stall.
  7. Lower the main cover.
  8. The printer will automatically align the print cartridges. The printer makes noise for a few seconds. This is normal.
