7. Remove the yellow tape 
from the bottom of the ink 
You must remove the yellow 
tape from the cartridge before 
you install it; otherwise, print 
quality may decline or you may 
not be able to print.
If you have installed an ink cartridge without removing the yellow 
tape, take the cartridge out of the printer, remove the yellow 
tape, and then reinstall it.
Do not remove the transparent 
seal from the bottom of the 
cartridge; otherwise, the cartridge 
may become unusable.
Do not remove or tear the label 
on the cartridge; otherwise, ink 
will leak.
8. Squeeze the back tab of the used cartridge as you lift it 
straight up and out of the printer and dispose of it properly. 
Don’t take the cartridge apart or try to refill it.
If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and 
water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with 
water. If discomfort or vision problems continue after a thorough 
flushing, see a doctor immediately.
9. Lower the new ink cartridge into the holder. Push down 
gently until the cartridge clicks into place.
10. If you need to replace other ink cartridges, repeat steps 
through 9 before continuing with step 11.
11. Close the cartridge cover.
12. Close the printer cover and press the 
ink button. The 
printer begins charging the ink delivery system.
The green 
power light flashes and the printer makes 
noise. Charging takes about one and a half minutes. When 
it’s finished, the green 
power light stops flashing and 
stays on, and the red 
ink light goes out.
Never turn off the printer while the green
power light is 
flashing, unless the print head hasn’t moved or the printer hasn’t 
made noise for more than 5 minutes.
Do not insert the CD/DVD tray until ink charging is complete.
If the red 
 ink light flashes after the print head moves to its 
home (far right) position, the ink cartridge may not be installed 
properly. Press the 
 ink button two or more times (until the 
print head moves to the ink cartridge replacement position), open 
the cartridge cover, and press down the ink cartridge until it clicks 
into place.
