Welcome to the HP support community.

 

 Remove, inspect, and then reseat the ink cartridges

  1. If the printer is off, press the Power button to turn on the printer.

  2. Open the ink cartridge access door. The carriage moves to the center of the printer. Wait until the carriage is idle and silent before continuing.

  3. Press down on the ink cartridge to release it, and then pull the ink cartridge out to remove it from its slot.

       CAUTION: 

    Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink nozzles. Touching these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.

  4. Remove any protective tape that still might be on the nozzles.

       CAUTION: 

    Do not try to remove the copper electrical strip.

  5. Hold the ink cartridge by its sides with the nozzles toward the printer, and then insert the ink cartridge into its slot. Make sure that the ink cartridge is inserted in the correct slot.

    • The tri-color ink cartridge  goes in the slot on the left.

    • The black ink cartridge  goes in the slot on the right.

  6. Push the ink cartridge forward into its slot until it snaps into place.

  7. Repeat these steps to replace the other ink cartridge, if necessary.

  8. Close the ink cartridge access door.
