Handle the ink cartridges

Before you replace or clean an ink cartridge, you should know the part names and how
to handle the ink cartridges.

1 Copper-colored contacts

2 Plastic tape with pink pull tab (must be removed before installing)

3 Ink nozzles under tape

Hold the ink cartridges by their black plastic sides, with the label on top. Do not touch the
copper-colored contacts or the ink nozzles.

NOTE: Handle the ink cartridges carefully. Dropping or jarring cartridges can cause
temporary printing problems, or even permanent damage.
