    • I'm using a HP Colour Laser.Jet CM1312nfi MFP at home. I only need black to print and mostly for photocopying. Will the black toner cartridge work without yellow, magenta and cyan? Please advise? Thanks, Udu.

      Replacing HP CB540A black cartridges

      This genuine HP 125A black toner cartridge (CB540A) needs to be installed alongside the other three cyan, magenta and yellow HP 125A toner cartridges with some remaining toner in each cartridge in order for your HP Colour LaserJet CM1312nfi printer to work. You should only need to replace the colour which runs out, so if you only print in black most of the time you should only need to change the black CB540A cartridge regularly.

    • Do you deliver in Mauritius and what's the postage fee ?

      Black HP CB540A toner delivery

      Sorry, we only deliver HP CB540A black toner cartridges within the UK.

      Answered by Tamara Sawyer (Staff Member) - about 4 years ago
    • Is this a high yield or normal HP CB540A black toner?

      HP CB540A black toner capacity

      The HP CB540A black toner is a standard capacity cartridge that will print approximately 2,200 pages. However, the printers that we list as compatible with the HP CB540A toner don't use high capacity cartridges so this will be the only black cartridge that fits the printer.

      The original cartridge is significantly more expensive than the compatible option but, having tried compatibles which sometimes fail well within even their limited lifetime, the originals don't fail and last much longer and they produce noticeably superior results. I always try to find them cheaper than cartridgesave, always fail and so come back time and again. Free next day delivery and a simple ordering process. Win win.
