Ink cartridge dripping ink every where

My ink cartridge is dripping everywhere.

I have a Photosmart C4180 all in one printer. No ink, so I was going to replace the cartridge. I open the front and found ink splatter on the front cover, behind and of course, on the bottom of the printer.

Question is, 1. does 90 deg temperature makes it drip? 2. I don't use my printer very often, 3. this is the original cartridge, printer is about 3 years old. I thought if anything, it would dry up before it drips.

 

Does anyone have any answer to this?

 

Also, it seems like there is no way to clean this mess up without dismantling it.

Re: Ink cartridge dripping ink every where

Just jumping on to this thread. My Deskject 832c leaked black ink out of the housing onto my nice oak desk. There is a pool of ink inside the printer. I'm using HP cartridges I bought at Staples. Staples will replace the cartridge, but not the printer.  Please advise.

Mine was the original cartridge that came with the printer.
