No matter what you use your HP Deskjet F2480 for, knowing how to change the print cartridges is important. When you see the quality of the print begin to fade, you know it is time to change the cartridges. Keeping a few extra F2480 cartridges on hand is always a good idea, since this will allow you to change them quickly and get back to printing.
Turn the printer on, and lower the paper tray. Pull out the paper tray extension, and load the tray with plain paper.
Open the front access door of the F2480, and wait for the print cartridges to move to the centre. Press down lightly on the cartridge to remove it.
Remove the replacement print cartridge from the box, and take off the protective tape. Hold the cartridge with the metal side facing down, and insert it into the colour-coded slot. Push down until the cartridge is firmly seated.
Close the front access door, and open the top lid of the F2480. Place the alignment page face down on the scanner glass, and close the top lid.
Press "Start Copy Color" to begin the alignment process. Wait for the alignment process to complete.
