What Ink Is Compatible With the HP ThinkJet Series?

Every printer is only compatible with a specific ink cartridge number. This code will be the same for both an HP ink cartridge and a compatible ink cartridge.

The cartridge number for your printer is a code that features your printer's brand name with a series of numbers and, in some cases, letters. One of the easiest ways to find your cartridge series is to look on the side of your printer cartridges in the printer. 

Another way to find your cartridge series is to use the extensive ink database on our website. Just select your printer out of our list of options to see which compatible ink options are available. After receiving your cartridge, you may notice a difference in size or shape when you compare it to your HP cartridge. This change in size is the result of design restrictions set in place by HP but will have no effect on your printer's operations.

How to Replace or Install Ink Cartridges for the HP ThinkJet Series

Since the HP ThinkJet Series is a thermal transfer printer, it operates differently compared to other printer types such as inkjets. Rather than printing directly on paper, the print heads of this printer press a wax-coated ribbon onto the paper. The wax melts to expose the ink, which then transfers to the paper and dries there. 

When you print with thermal ink cartridges, your prints will last longer, and you have the option to print in multiple colors. Since this device does use a ribbon, you will need to replace the thermal transfer cartridge occasionally. Complete the steps below to replace your thermal transfer cartridge:

  1. Lift the lid of your thermal transfer cartridge packaging and remove the cartridge and small connector piece. 
  2. Open the front panel of your printer. 
  3. On the right-hand side, you will see a small latch. Lower this latch and place the connector piece into position on the top area of the latch. Then place your cartridge on the left side of it and put the latch back into position. 
  4. Close the front of the printer. 
  5. Load paper into your printer and continue printing. 

Along with replacing your thermal transfer cartridge, you may also need to perform maintenance. By completing a few easy maintenance steps, you'll be able to have your cartridge last longer and improve its printing quality. 

To check the ink level of the print head, hold the cartridge up and view the bladder inside. While you are handling the cartridge, be sure to avoid touching the face of this cartridge with your fingers. If you see a collapsed bladder, this means the ink supply is empty, and you need to replace the ink cartridge. 

Another maintenance task is to remove any dust that may form on the printer heads after not using your printer for an extended time. Take a tissue and wipe the face of the cartridge. If you continue to notice a decline in printing quality, it may be time to replace your cartridge entirely.
