  • My print quality diagnostics page passes all 3 tests but when I print or photocopy black text I get horizontal blank stripes in the text. Please could you tell me if this sounds like I need a new black printhead? If not, could you advise what the problem could be? Thank you.

    Black HP 88 printhead replacement

    It could be that you may need a new black printhead but unfortunately we cannot confirm this for certain. Please find a link below to HP Customer Support, who should be able to run through some troubleshooting methods with you:

  • I have an HP Officejet Pro K8600 and after running various diagnostic tests, I think I need new printheads. However, it's a bit confusing which ones I need - I think I probably need both but given the cost but thought I should check. I have really bad streaks across the magenta and orange blocks on the diagnostics page - does this mean both printheads need replacing? Many thanks.

    Your printer should report when an item needs to be replaced. We do not provide technical support for printers I'm afraid. We would recommend that you refer to your printer manual or contact HP directly. I have attached a link to the HP website below for your reference:

  • I have an HP CP1700 which appears to need a new yellow printhead (I have a spare black one). Do you have just a yellow print head?

    HP CP1700 printhead

    The genuine black and yellow HP C9381A printheads are not compatible with the HP CP1700 according to our listings. The HP CP1700 inkjet printer uses HP 11 printheads and the yelllow printhead is available as a single colour with the HP code C4813A. Please follow the link below to order a new yellow HP 11 printhead for your HP CP1700: http://www.cartridgesave.co.uk/C4813A.html

  • How frequently do the HP 88 printheads need changing e.g. I've had use of this printer for 3 years and not encountered a problem until now? Where are the printheads located in the printer? Are they in the vicinity of the printer cartridges?

    HP 88 printhead changing

    HP advise that this printhead should achieve approximately 41,500 pages. You may need to change the cartridges 10 - 15 times for every time you change the printhead, depending on how many pages you achieve with each cartridge. Unfortunately, we are not able to advise on where this item is located and how to replace this item, but there should be full instructions in your printer manual. If you no longer have the printer manual then it should be available for download on the HP website, if you have any problems finding this then please let us know.

  • My Officejet Pro L7680 printer will not print any black and when asking it to align the printer a message comes up saying "failed refer to device documentation for details". What does this mean? If I replace the black / yellow printhead will this solve the problem? As they are expensive, I do not want to pay for one and find the printer still doesn't work properly.

    Black / yellow HP 88 printhead

    This error message does not suggest that replacing the HP C9381A printhead will resolve the problem. It could possibly be the black ink cartridge that is at fault?

    As we do not sell printers, only consumable items for printers, we do not provide technical support for each printer model. We would recommend that you consult your printer manual, or contact HP directly. I have attached a link to the HP website below for your reference:

  • Hi, I have a HP OfficeJet Pro L7680. How do I know when the printheads need replacing? Thanks.

    HP 88 printhead replacement

    Your Officejet Pro L7680 printer should have a status monitor or warning for when the printheads are becoming warn. If the quality of your prints are deteriorating, please perform a cleaning cycle before spending money on replacement parts. Any serious degradation in print quality which cannot be attributed to the ink cartridges, or cannot be rectified by running a cleaning cycle, maybe a good indication that your printheads need changing.

  • If I purchase two C9381A printheads, can you tell me what shelf life expiry date is guaranteed on them please?

    We advise a 12 month shelf life for HP C9381A printhead cartridges, provided they are kept in the correct storage conditions.

  • I've recently purchased cartridges from you that have just arrived but will not fit. Please could you advise what I need for an HP Officejet Pro L7480? The old cartridges have 88 C9382A on them. Many thanks.

    HP C9381A printhead for Officejet L7480

    The HP Officejet Pro L7480 printer uses separate ink cartridges and printheads. The item you're currently viewing is a genuine HP 88 black and yellow printhead (C9381A). There's also the HP 88 magenta and cyan printhead (C9382A) which is the old cartridge you referred to. It's possible that you might have ordered the printheads rather than the ink cartridges for your printer. If you need to replace the ink cartridges you'll require different part numbers to those used for the printheads (C9381A & C9382A). Please refer to your HP Officejet Pro L7480 printer manual for further help with which consumables you need to replace and the relevant part numbers. A full list of supplies that we stock for the HP Officejet Pro L7480 printer can be seen here: http://www.cartridgesave.co.uk/ink-cartridges/HP/Officejet-Pro-L7480.html

    Excellent service. Product arrived next day, well packaged. Thank you for prompt service.

  • By Charles on 5 Nov 2015

    Great product, great price, fast delivery enough said!

  • By Thomas on 30 Dec 2014

    The Original Product that I received first was faulty. I telephoned Cartridge Save and was able to get to Customer Service quickly and I received a new Cartridge immediately the next day. The services provided was exceptional and I will continue to buy from Cartridge save.

  • By Françoise Doose-Lee on 28 Nov 2014

    I am absolutely delighted with my new printhead: it arrived very promptly, was easy to install and the quality is very good..

  • By Richard on 8 Nov 2014

    Price was the best around and there's no faster delivery in the marketplace. What's not to like about Cartridgesave?

  • By Pippy on 25 Oct 2014

    Printer behaved and printed yellow as soon as I had fitted the printhead - I was very relieved as the printer checks prior to this had failed to recognise any faults, despite the fact that yellow had disappeared from the colour prints.

  • By Martin on 11 Jul 2014

    Were the cheapest around so ordered, communication was fantastic and the print-heads arrived very quickly. Well packaged and all instructions available and easy to understand Everything was as it should have been as has made such a difference to my printing Will definitely use this company again

    Excellent service

  • By S Piney on 11 Mar 2013

    Yet again a fabulous service from Cartridgesave. Item dispatched within 30 minutes of the order!! Wouldn't hesitate to use them everytime.

  • By Phillip on 17 Jan 2013

    Original printhead became streaky after I aborted a print-run despite only reaching a quarter of its supposed life. New printhead fitted which failed after a couple of uses 'has a problem/couldn't be found' message). Relaced by Cartridgesave as the black and yellow ones are known to be unreliable. Full marks to Cartridgesave but not to HP.

  • By Jim Collins on 17 Jan 2013

    No hassle easy to order prompt delivery just what th customer wants

  • By Chats on 18 Aug 2012

    As a replacement part it worked as it should. I have no problems with this part
