Re: HP deskjet printer compatible ink cartridges

They will not work. Although they may look similiar and may even fit into the cartridge holder. The internal circuitry is different and will not be read correctly by the printer. If they are all brand new or unopened, there is always ebay.

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:

Depending on the age of the printer, the service staion may need to be cleaned. The service station is where the cartridges "park" when they are not in use. Over time ink can collect in this area and therefore the ink cartridges do not get a thorough cleaning. I would go to HP's website and look for cleaning instructions for your printer model. Hope this helps

Paper Jam Issue with the HP Deskjet 5440

Clean the contacts on the HP Cartridge. I've had the same error before and i switched it to a fresh new cartridge.. works fine ever since. THen i decided to switch back to the old cartridge, same error as you but i cleaned the contacts on the cartridge, works for a while but done after a week. Problem is that the ribbon circuit is rusted and the printer doesnt recognize the ink anymore.

Also make sure you both have the ink cartridges in place. Make sure it is seated properly inside.

hope this helps!

Never use alcohol, instead use distilled water or just water...
Seems like your cartridge need to be changed, maybe is very old in production date and ink is no more so fluid.
