Replace the ink cartridges

NOTE: For information on recycling used ink supplies, see HP inkjet supplies
recycling program.

If you do not already have replacement ink cartridges for the printer, see HP supplies
and accessories.

NOTE: At this time, some portions of the HP website are available in English only.

NOTE: Not all cartridges are available in all countries/regions.

CAUTION: While ink cartridges are not damaged when left outside of the printer,
the printhead does need to have all cartridges installed at all times after the printer
is set up and in use. Leaving one or more cartridge slots empty for an extended
period may lead to print quality problems and possibly damage the printhead. If you
have recently left a cartridge out of the printer for an extended period, or if you have
had a recent paper jam, and have noticed poor print quality, clean the printhead.
For more information, see Clean the printhead.
