HP 1250 Fax - Replace the Print Cartridges

Introduction

Follow the instructions below to replace the print cartridges.

Replacing the print cartridges

Step one: Remove the print cartridges

  1. Verify that the unit is on. Press the On button to turn on the unit. The On button is lit when the unit is on.
    Figure : Pressing the On button to turn on the unit
      caution:
    If the unit is off when you open the print cartridge door to access the print cartridges, the unit will not release the cartridges for changing. You might damage the unit if the print cartridges are not docked safely on the right side when you try to remove them.
  2. Open the print cartridge door. The print carriage moves to the far right side of the unit.

  3. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it.
    • If you are replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left.
    • If you are replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right.

    2. Print cartridge slot for the black print cartridges
  4. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot.
    If you are removing the print cartridge because it is low or out of ink, recycle the print cartridge. The HP Inkjet Supplies Recycling Program is available in many countries/regions, and lets you recycle used print cartridges free of charge.

Step two: Install the new print cartridge

  1. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.

    1. Copper-colored contacts
    2. Plastic tape with pink pull tab (must be removed before installing)
    3. Ink nozzles under tape
      caution:
    Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles. Touching these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.
  2. Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Then gently push the upper part of the print cartridge forward until it clicks into the socket.
    • If you are installing the tri-color print cartridge, slide it into the left slot.
    • If you are installing a black print cartridge, slide it into the right slot.

Step three: Align the print cartridges

  1. If you installed a new print cartridge, the print cartridge alignment process starts. Verify that there is plain paper loaded in the input tray, and then press OK.
    The unit prints a print cartridge alignment sheet.
  2. Load the alignment sheet print side down and top first in the center of the document feeder tray, and then press OK.

  3. The unit aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the print cartridge alignment sheet.

Align the print cartridges from the control panel at any time

  1. Verify that there is letter, A4, or legal size unused plain white paper loaded in the input tray.
  2. Press Setup.
  3. Press 5 to select Tools.

    The unit prints a print cartridge alignment sheet.

    note:
    If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the print cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the input tray, and then try the alignment again.
  6. The unit aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the print cartridge alignment sheet.
