Hi @Kamesh_96


Welcome to the HP Support Community. 


HP recommends filling the inks tanks before installing the printheads. 


Refer to this document for more information - HP Ink Tank 310 Printer - First Time Printer Setup


Use the following tips to work with printheads:

● To protect the printheads from drying out, always turn the printer off using the Power button, and wait until the Power button light goes out.
● Do not open or untape printheads until you are ready to install them. Leaving tape on the printheads reduces ink evaporation.
● Insert the new printheads into the correct slots. Match the color and icon of each printhead to the color and icon for each slot. Make sure the printheads snap into place, and then close the printhead latch. After new printheads are installed and primed with ink, do not open the printhead latch unless installing new printheads or moving the printer outside your home or office.
● Align the printer for best print quality.


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
