3: Turn off the printer by pressing and holding in one of its buttons for at least 10 seconds or until you see a prompt telling you to open up some compartmental doors on top of it (there will be one somewhere).

In order to override a hp printer cartridge problem, you don’t have to get all these steps right on the first try. I’ve had 2 or 3 cartridges where I just couldn’t get them to work in my old printer, but every time I swapped them out, they would work right away in my new printer. You may notice that sometimes the colors will look different when you first plug your cartridge into your old machine, but that’s normal – printer heads are not color-accurate and your colors will get better with use.
As for where you get a new printer cartridge, try eBay or Craigslist – I’ve seen ink cartridges go for as low as $10 on eBay. If you don’t want to or can’t pick it up yourself, they also offer free shipping with Priority Mail on eBay.
