  1. Fantastic tutorial!!! Great luck with HP products and support! That's all we buy now, HP! Tech support is FANTASTIC also!

  2. Is it possible to use Hp 61 to my hp deskjet 2540 even when the last cartridge I used are 301? Coz I bought my last cartridge in Europe but now I already moved here in Asia. Is it okay to use hp 61 or there will be some issues or error?

  3. Very helpful – it had been a while so I needed a clear procedure. Much appreciated!

  4. Thanks for this video!
    But – what if the printer doesn´t print the alignment page after changing the cartridge? I did everything as explained, but it doesn´t print the alignment page. And without this step it doesn´t print my letter……

  5. I have this HP Deskjet 2454 but I don't know if I should use 678 ink or 650.

  6. 2543 doesnt print the alignment page. not working. 3rd hp printer, never again!!!!!!!

  7. Cartridge would not 'click' in….taking the bloody thing back tomorrow…waste of time and money!
