Follow the instructions below to replace the cartridges.
Replacing the cartridges
Step one: Remove the old cartridge

    If the product is off when the cartridge door is opened in order to access the print cartridges, it will not release the cartridges. Trying to remove the cartridges if they are not released might damage the product.
  2. Open the cartridge door. The carriage moves to the far right side of the product.

  4. Close the cartridge door.
Step three: Align the new cartridges
The product prompts you to align the cartridges every time you install a new cartridge. Aligning the cartridges ensures high-quality output.
  1. Make sure that only plain, unused, white, U.S. letter or A4 size paper is loaded in the input tray.
  2. On the product control panel, press OK.
  3. The product calibrates itself and prints a test page. Recycle or discard the page.
    If colored paper is loaded in the input tray when the cartridges are aligned, the alignment fails. Load plain, unused, white, U.S. letter or A4 size paper into the input tray, and then follow these steps to try the alignment again.
    1. Load plain, unused, white, U.S. letter or A4 size paper into the input tray.
    2. On the control panel, press Setup.
