Frequently Asked Questions


Do I need to replace the old cartridge on my HP OfficeJet J6450 immediately after getting a low-ink warning?

Not necessarily. You may continue printing even with a low-ink warning until such time the print quality is no longer acceptable. Make sure to have a replacement cartridge on hand to avoid printing delays.


Why should I keep the printer on when installing a new ink cartridge?

If your printer is turned off when you open the print cartridge door to replace the empty cartridge, the printer will simply not release the ‘problem’ cartridge. Also, you might damage the printer if the cartridge is not docked safely when you try to take it out of the printer.


Where should I install a photo or gray photo print cartridge inside the printer?

The photo or gray photo print cartridge usually goes to the slot on the right.
