Hi,I'm sorry about the issue. You would press down the ink cartridge to release it, then you can pull out the cartridge. Then remove the plastic tape from the new ink cartridge, then push the new ink cartridge forward into its slot until it snaps into place.- Please click on the website below for video instructions:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXs7uheu6so- If needed, click on the website below for instructions / illustrations:http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Deskjet-2540-All-in-One-Printer-series/5295960/model/5295961/document/c03773247/Please reply at the box below to continue.
