If you have an individual ink cartridge like an HP 564 and it is not clicking into the cartridge slot, it may be due to the position of the plastic arm on the end of the cartridge. Sometimes if the arm is not extended out far enough on the cartridge, it cannot properly snap into the printer. Gently pull outwards on the arm to extend it a bit more and insert the cartridge again.
