The Hewlett-Packard (HP) DeskJet D2360 is a colour printer with a 100-sheet paper tray and the ability to print photographs and documents in "Fast Draft" to conserve ink. But the printer's ink cartridges don't last forever, and eventually they need replacing. The HP DeskJet D2360 contains one black-and-white cartridge and a tricolour cartridge that holds magenta, cyan and yellow ink. The cartridges are available at office supply, computer and retail superstores as well as online.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Turn on your HP DeskJet D2360, and lift its top cover. The ink cartridge carriage inside the printer will move to the centre.

  2. 2

    Press down on the front of the cartridge that needs replacing to unlock it. Lift the cartridge out of the carriage. Dispose of the empty ink cartridge in a dustbin or bag, or store it in the bag to return to the office supply store for recycling.

  3. 3

    Remove the packaging from the new cartridge, and pull the plastic tape from the metal contacts on the bottom of the ink cartridge. Gently shake the ink cartridge from side to side. Do not touch the contacts with your fingers---the oil on your fingers can damage the contacts.

  4. 4

    Gently place the new ink cartridge in the carriage with the metal contacts facing down. Press down on the back of the cartridge to snap it in place.

  5. 5

    Close your HP DeskJet D2360's top cover. You will hear the ink carriage move from side to side. An ink calibration page will print within one minute.

Tips and warnings

  • If your printer is in a dirty environment or contains ink fragments on its cartridges, wear latex gloves to remove the cartridges to keep dirt and ink from getting on your hands.
