Replacing a Cartridge - HP Deskjet F4400 All-in-One Printer

So you need to replace a cartridge in your HP Printer. Let's walk through the steps together.
The first thing we want to do is turn the printer on, so press the Power button.
Next, load paper into the input tray until it stops. Slide the paper width guide inward until it stops at the edge of the paper. Do not push the guide in so tightly that it starts to bend the paper.
Open the cartridge access door. The carriage will then move to the center of the printer.
Wait until the carriage stops moving and then gently press down on the cartridge to release it. You can then remove the cartridge from the printer.
Now, take the new cartridge out of its package.
Using the pink pull tab, carefully remove the protective tape.
When handling the cartridges be aware of the electrical contacts and ink nozzles.
Be careful not to touch the contacts or nozzles because touching these can cause clogs, ink failure, and poor electrical connections.
Make sure that you install the replacement cartridge in its correct slot. Tri-color on the left. Black on the right.
Place the new cartridge into the slot and gently but firmly push it straight in until it pops into place. Use your left hand on the back of the printer to keep the printer from moving while you insert the cartridge.
When the cartridges are in, close the cartridge access door of the printer. An alignment page will print.
Lift the scanner lid. Load the alignment page print side down on the front right corner of the glass. Close the lid.
Press the Scan button to complete the alignment.
Once the alignment is successful, you can recycle the alignment sheet. Once all the steps are complete, your printer is ready for use.
