How do I install my ink cartridge for the first time?
After installing your printer driver software, you will see the Setup Utility that walks you through installing your ink cartridges.

1. Follow the on-screen instructions to open the printer cover, then click "Next". Remove the yellow tape seal from the top of the ink cartridges. Don't remove the clear seals on the bottom or the ink will leak out. Never remove an ink cartridge except to replace it with a new one. Once you remove it, you can't reuse it, even if it contains ink.
2. The printer moves the black ink cartridge holder into the loading position. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the black cartridge in your printer.
3. Once you've installed the black ink cartridge, the Setup Utility asks you to install the the color ink cartridge. Click OK and follow the on-screen instructions. You must install both ink cartridges or the printer will not work.
4. After you've installed both cartridges, the printer begins charging the ink for several minutes. Close the printer cover and do not unplug the printer while it is charging the ink supply system.

Note: Since the initial ink cartridges charge the ink supply system, they will print fewer pages than replacement cartridges.
