To replace the printhead:

  1. Make sure your printer is on.

  2. Lift the printer access door, and wait for the carriage to move to the access position.

  3. Remove both ink cartridges and set them aside.

  4. Unlatch the used printhead by lifting the button in the center of the carriage.

  5. Lift the used printhead out of the carriage .

  6. Remove the new printhead from its bag.

    Do not touch the copper contacts on the printhead, as doing so may damage the printhead.

  7. Remove the plastic protective cap.

    IMPORTANT: Be careful not to scratch or touch the copper contacts while inserting the printhead.

  8. Place the new printhead into the carriage.

  9. Push firmly against the target label of the printhead until you hear a loud snap.

  10. Insert the black ink cartridge into the printhead.

  11. Press down on the ink cartridge until you hear it click into position.

  12. Repeat steps 10 - 11 for the color ink cartridge.
