How to Replace an Empty Ink Cartridge in the HP ENVY Pro 6475 All-in-One series Printer – an Illustrated Tutorial in 9 Steps



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 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 new HP ink cartridges.

You can check the estimated ink levels from the printer control panel, from the HP printer software, and from the HP Smart App.

To check the ink levels from the printer software (Windows):
– Open the HP printer software.
– In the printer software, click Estimated Levels.

To check the ink levels from the HP Smart App:
Open the HP Smart App on your mobile device. The estimated ink levels for your printer appear at the top of the screen, beside the picture of the printer.

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.

Use the single-cartridge mode to operate the HP ENVY Pro 6475 All-in-One Printer with only one ink cartridge. The single-cartridge mode is initiated when There is only one cartridge installed in the carriage, or a cartridge is removed from the carriage if there are two cartridges installed previously.

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.
