How to Replace an Empty Ink Cartridge in the HP Officejet 4620 e-All-in-One series – an Illustrated Tutorial in 8 Steps

Hewlett Packard Officejet 4620 Wireless Color Photo Printer with Scanner, Copier and Fax

Make sure you purchase the right ink cartridges for your specific printer and printer region or have your old ones refilled. Cartridges are not compatible between different brands, and often not within the same brand. Unlike other inkjet manufacturers, HP often designs its inkjet hardware to use country-specific consumables. When you unbox a new HP inkjet printer and set it up, you install a set of ink tanks that ship with the printer. As you turn on the device and get ready to use it, an initialization sequence localizes it to the country associated with the ink cartridges you installed.

HP recommends that you use original HP ink cartridges. XL (Extra Large) cartridges cost more but do provide better value in the long run. They will be able to print at least double the pages of a regular cartridge. Our advice is that if you print often, go with XL. However, ink can dry up. So if you are not a frequent printer, go with the regular cartridges.

You can check the estimated ink levels from the printer control panel, printer software or the embedded Web server (EWS). Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you receive a low-ink warning message, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not have to replace the cartridges until the print quality is unacceptable.

To check the estimated ink levels from the printer control panel:
– From the Home screen, press the Setup button (wrench icon).
– Using the buttons on the right, select Ink Information, and then select Estimated Ink Levels.
