Use these steps to replace the ink cartridges.
To replace the ink cartridges
Make sure the printer is turned on.
Open the ink cartridge access door.
NOTE: Wait until the print carriage stops moving before proceeding.
Press the front of the ink cartridge to release it, and then remove it from the slot.
Remove the new ink cartridge from its packaging.
Using the color-coded letters for help, slide the ink cartridge into the empty slot
until it is securely installed in the slot.
CAUTION: Do not lift the latch handle on the print carriage to install the ink
cartridges. Doing so could cause the printhead or ink cartridges to be
incorrectly seated, which can cause errors or print quality problems. The latch
must remain down in order to correctly install the ink cartridges.
Work with ink cartridges
Make sure that you insert the ink cartridge into the slot that has the same colored
letter as the color you are installing.
