  7. Insert the new print cartridge at a slightly upward angle into its respective slot. Slide it firmly until you hear it snaps into position.

Frequently Asked Questions


Why did my HP PhotoSmart C5550 printer say ‘Print Cartridge Failed’ after installing a new cartridge?

If the newly installed ink cartridge does not have full electrical contact with your HP printer, it may display the ‘Print Cartridge Failed’ error message. Try reinstalling the new cartridge and make sure it’s seated properly this time.


What will happen if I failed to remove the plastic sealing tape when I installed the new cartridge?

The printer will simply not print. Take the new cartridge out of the printer and remove the plastic tape before reinstalling it.


What does printing in backup mode mean?

Printing in backup mode means you can still print even if there’s one remaining cartridge on your printer. Print quality, however, is not as good as when your printer still has both the tri-color and the black ink cartridges.
