How To Find The Right Color Printer Ink Cartridges For HP Printers

2011-08-29

A printer without the correct printer ink cartridges will not be much good to anyone. That means you need to make sure that you find the correct compatible color printer ink cartridges for your HP printer when replacement becomes necessary. Here are a few guidelines to ensure that you find the right cartridges for your HP.

Before you begin searching for printer ink cartridges, you should jot down a few details. First, it is worth noting that there are different types of printers, such as laser and inkjet printers, each of which uses a different type of printer cartridge. For example, laser printers use toner ink cartridges while inkjet printers use inkjet cartridges. Before you begin to shop, you should be clear on the type of printer ink cartridges that are required for your particular HP printer.

Aside from this, the most important details to note are the printer's model number and the product numbers of your old printer ink cartridges. It is worth keeping some of the packaging from previous printer ink cartridges, since they will have these details on them. However, if you do not have the packaging on hand, you should open up the printer so you can see the printer ink cartridges and remove them if required. Then look for the printer's model number and the product numbers on the color printer ink cartridges.

If you are going to an office supply store, consider bringing the previous printer ink cartridges with you. Bring the packaging as well, if you still have it. When you have this, along with the model and product numbers, you can use these numbers to find the compatible HP printer ink cartridges.

However, it should be noted that you cannot be guaranteed of finding compatible HP printer cartridges at any particular office supply store. That means it's worth searching online. To begin, visit the official HP website, since there you should be able to find compatible HP ink cartridges for all HP printers.

Alternatively, search engines such as Google or Bing can also be great search tools. Using a search engine, input a specific keyword that will include the model or product number of the HP ink cartridge and make sure that "HP ink cartridge" is also included. Searching with Google, select the "shop" option, which will list matching printer ink cartridges and links to pertinent websites.

So long as you have the printer model number and product number of previous compatible ink cartridges that worked with your printer, you should be able to find the right ink. Search online at the HP website, through search engines, or visit office supply stores.
