Your printer`s ink cartridge number is printed on the top or front of the ink cartridge carrier on a sticker. The sticker also contains the color of the cartridge – black, magenta, yellow and cyan.
What does the number on ink cartridges mean? The number on an ink cartridge allows you to identify if an ink cartridge is compatible with the printer you are trying to use them in. For example, HP 304 inks are compatible with the HP Deskjet 2630 as well as the HP Envy 5032 Ink.
Since all of these different cartridge series look the same, many people wonder if they are interchangeable. Are they interchangeable? The answer is no, even though they look similar and will likely fit inside your printer, they will not print if installed in the wrong printer.
1. The easiest way to figure out what cartridges work with your printer is by opening up the printer to see what cartridges are currently inside the machine. 2. If there are no cartridges inside the printer, you can search for the printer model on the manufacturer`s website.
HP ink and toner cartridges are labeled to help distinguish which cartridges work with selected printers. The ink or toner cartridges are listed according to where the printer was manufactured. Some printers use more than one cartridge.
HP Officejet 8610 can use 950/950XL for black and 951/951XL for colour ink cartridges. You can`t use HP 952 cartridges no matter where you bought them.
Yes, you can.

The results: Original HP ink cartridges far surpassed ink refills in both print quality and reliability.

Using a generic or refilled ink cartridge won`t automatically void your warranty, but it`s important to note that any damage caused specifically from using a non-HP ink product won`t be covered by the warranty for your HP printer.
Print In Single Cartridge Mode

For instance, the HP ENVY series allows you to print in single-cartridge mode. When it comes to printing a single color i.e black, you can perform your printing activity by simply removing the tricolor cartridge and letting your printer default settings to use only black ink.

Find Ink for My Printer by Ink Model Number

If you have an empty ink cartridge, you can simply look on the top or front of the cartridge itself for its ink/toner cartridge number and/or manufacturer`s code. Cartridge model number is composed of numbers and sometimes, a combination of numbers and letters.

These HP 300 cartridges are compatible with the HP Deskjet D1660, HP Deskjet D5560, HP Photosmart C4680 AiO and C4780 AiO printers.
Research and development are often cited as the main reason for the high cost of supplies for inkjets and laser printers. HP claims it spends $1 billion a year on research and development, and holds over 4,000 patents alone on consumables, like toner cartridges for laser printers, and, of course, ink cartridges.
Officejet is a trademarked series of printers manufactured exclusively by HP. These printers are also inkjet printers. As the name suggests, Officejet printers were primarily created for use in an an office setting.
Those cartridges are not interchangeable.

You can easily tell this in several ways. There will be a badge on the front of your printer with the model name and number. If the model name has LaserJet mentioned you have a laser printer. If the model name has Officejet, Deskjet or Bubble jet means you have an inkjet printer.

HP deskjet 460 Waste ink tank full
ANSWER : I worked fixing printers for 5 years for Verizon and some of the older printers were notorious for the waste receptacle filling and overflowing with ink. My solution was good old warm water. Remove the waste container and scoop out as much as you can with a small screwdriver, wiping the discard on a paper towel, then just run warm water from the faucet into the container till all the residue is removed. This is just water soluble ink folks, if you want to test it, scoop out a glob and dissolve it in warm water, its easy as pie. I never once bought a new ink discard reservoir. I just cleaned out my mobile 460 printer reservoir by the same method. There are no electrical connections its just all plastic.

Black ink in HP G55 casing
ANSWER : Hope someone can help me with a HP Officejet G55 “problem”. I took my G55 apart and cleaned the service station as explained here on this site as it was obviously full of ink “goo” and the printer had refused to print in the middle of a printing, displaying a remove black cartridge etc message even though the HP45 cartridge itself showed it was not even half empty. I had no major problems with the cleaning procedure, but after putting it back together there was “the problem”! The Carriage with the ink cartridges gets stuck just before its about to enter its “home base” over the service station and I get a “fix carriage jam and then push enter” on the screen. I can see and hear that it is the service station that gets stuck just before the “cycle run” of the carriage is about to end. You can hear the service station motor gear slip on the plastic gear mechanism of the service station, not being able to move it any further but tries for a moment with a grinding noise and then stops. Is there some sort of time alignment I need to do between the carriage, service station mechanism and service station motor? Like service station pushed to the back, carriage to the far left etc etc. Ive tried a few “scenarios” but the carriage allways gets stuck in the same place with the grinding noise from the service station/motor “gears”! If I move the carriage by hand it goes from the far right to the far left without any problem. Its just when the service station/motor etc is engaged, that this happens. Hope someone can help me with this problem. Thank you.
