Re: ink cartridges

I had the same problem until a very helpful friend told me about printer ink refills. You can buy these from Argos (both black ink and also ink for colour cartridges). They come with a syringe and you basically just refill the old cartridges. I have only bought one refill and so far it has lasted me the best part of a year. Much cheaper!

I put in a black ink cartridge and my hp photosmart 7520 printed a few copies and then I couldn't print after the first few copies - what should i do to check my hp 7520 ?

Is that a compatible cartridge!
Pay attention! if the printer won't print change the cartridge, don't try to print pages with a finished cartridge or you'll burn your printhead!
If the cartridge is HP genuine do a cleaning cycle, if it helps, great, if it won't give the cartridge back for "defective", HP Cartridges always have a warranty
Hope you found it useful!

I was given an HP Officejet J3640. I installed the HP21/22 ink cartridges, printed the alignment page, then loaded the alignment sheet in the feeder. After I loaded the alignment sheet, it responds...


Check if the alignment page has been printed correctly i mean the bars printed with a little yellow color around it right?

Okay what you can do is do a reset first. Follow the below things

1. When the printer is on remove the power directly from the back of the printer.
2. hold # and 9 key and connect the power
3. Printer will show you on the screen it is resetting the NVRAM then release the buttons

The printer will print alignment page again this time try to scan and it should work.

Will HP 60 ink cartridge work with HP Deskjet 2460? Tnx.

This is all HP recommends for the HP Deskjet 2460, so I wouldn't suggest buying anything else. First of all it might not fit and second, even if it fits, other issues may come with using those. If you can't see the list here it is:
HP 21 Black HP 21 Black Twinpack HP 21/22 Black/Color Combo HP 21/22 Quad Pack HP 22 Tri-color Twinpack HP 22 Tricolor HP 58 Photo

My hp deskjet f4180 printeris acting like it is printing, but the pages are coming out blank. The cartriges are new, they worked for the first few pages, then it started printing lighter, and lighter...

Hello. It sounds like the cartridges are running empty, strange that new cartridges would run empty so quickly. Depending on the cartridge number the 21 and 22 are very low capacity. you do have the option of using a 57 colour also which has approx double the capacity, but unfortunately the black is only a 190 page cartridge (according to them, real world testing has shown much less)
If it has been refilled try this link below to get it flowing again.
If the Cartridges are HP Brand jump on the phone to HP to obtain a replacement cartridge.
F.Y.I Most compatible cartridges (21 and 22) have a capacity of approx 20ml of ink, compared to HP that hold approx 6ml. I would recommended SkyWell Brand of compatibles as they have great colour and a large capactiy.
I hope this helps Regards GM

Hello,after refilling ink cartridges HP21 and

Since HP’s ink technology is different from other manufacturers, they do not recommend to use refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges. Though the cost of genuine HP cartridges are bit expensive than the other cartridges, HP cartridges are manufactured in keeping mind the important factors print quality and customer satisfaction. Using the refilled cartridges may degrade the print quality and may damage the printer’s internal hardware.

I request you to use genuine HP Inkjet cartridges and verify the result.

How to install hp 21 cartridge into dell 926 printer

Use only genuine cartridges with your printer. Printers these days have a built in sensor that can sense non compatible/generic/refilled cartridges and wont install them. It will only cause you more problems in the long run if you use a generic cartridges.

Best bet is to buy genuine inks..
