Turn on the power of your HP DeskJet 3752. Then ensure that there are white paper loaded in the input tray. Open the cartridge access door and wait for the ink carriage to move to the center of the machine. In order to remove the used ink cartridge, push it inward until it pop out of its slot.

No, there should be an ink cartridge access door

Wait until the carriage stops moving before you continue.
Gently press down on the ink cartridge to release it, and then pull the ink cartridge out of its slot.

Okay I got it now can I replace the color cartridge with a black and white cartridge
Oliver Maslou
Oliver Maslou Tech Expert & Writer
Yes, display on printer will show low or no color ink in cartridge but as long as their is ink in your black ink cartridge you will be okay
Place the ink cartridge into its slot. Lock it into place by firmly pushing on it.
Repeat the previous steps for any other cartridges that you wish to replace.
Close the cartridge access door. You may print an alignment page to test the quality of the cartridge.

The black and white cartridge does not fit in the color cartridge slot
Oliver Maslou
Oliver Maslou Tech Expert & Writer
In this case, please do not try to fit one in the slot
You need to only put them in the corresponding slots

Okay but now I am having difficulty removing the black and white cartridge
