  • Hi, I've just returned to my computer use after a period of approximately two years. I probably need some inks for my printer which is only lightly used. The printer has been off for a long time and does not print on request, it only runs through its printing cycle producing a blank page. I'm assuming it's either out of ink or blocked by dried ink. I'm going to order some cartridges from your company but how do I check for fluid levels in the ones I've got?

    Photosmart C3100 printer ink and maintenance

    If your printer is not used regularly it is important to run cleaning cycles through your printer. This is to prevent the build up of dried ink in your printheads. Your printer should report the amount of ink remaining in the cartridges when printing or performing a cleaning cycle. If you have ink remaining in the cartridges, then you may need to perform a few cleaning cycles to remove any dried ink and allow the ink to flow freely through your printheads. If any cartridges are reporting as empty then they will need to be replaced. You can place an order online or by contacting a member of our sales team.

  • My printer is a HP Photosmart C3100 printer / scanner / copier and a friend has bought me a black refill with the number 300. Is this suitable for my printer please?

    HP C3100 black ink cartridge

    No, the HP Photosmart C3100 black ink cartridge should have the number HP 338 or HP 336. The HP 300 ink cartridge is not compatible with your printer model.

  • Hi, does the HP 339 cartridge fit this printer? I read that it is larger than the 338 and fits most of the time.

  • Do you supply ink No. 131 / 132 and colour ink No. 135 / 136 cartridges for the Photosmart C3100 All-in-One printer?

    HP Photosmart C3100 ink codes

    I'm afraid that we don't stock cartridges with the numbers you've provided. This suggests that your printer was purchased outside of the UK. If this is the case the cartridges that we supply for the HP Photosmart C3100 will not work in your printer. We list the HP 338 black ink and HP 342 / 343 colour ink cartridges for the Photosmart C3100 but if your printer was not purchased in the UK these ink cartridges will not work for you. Please contact HP directly as they may be able to advise you about where to buy ink cartridges with the correct codes for your machine. Ink cartridges have a region code and you must purchase supplies for the correct region in order for them to work.

HP Photosmart C3100 Printer Review

Expert review of the HP Photosmart C3100 printer

Our Verdict:

Photosmart is Hewlett Packard's series of multifunction colour inkjet printers, and the HP C3100 is the entry model into that all-in-one line-up. In addition to the standard C3100, there are two sub-models: the C3100se and the C3100xi. The C3100se simply includes the Design Office Limited software, and the C3100xi includes Cardiris LE, a business card scanner. Otherwise, all of these machines are quite similar. They have an instant-on feature, print at 6 pages per minute, copy at 6 pages per minute, fax at 6 seconds per page, have a 25.6 MHz processor and 2 MB of memory. The C3100 only supports doubles-sided printing manually, and the duty cycle is 6,000 pages printed and 2,000 pages scanned. Both the input tray and output tray have a 100 sheet capacity, and black HP C3100 ink yields 2,500 pages.


For the C3100, HP uses a flat, sturdy design that is perfect for the home office, and it employs a two-tone colour scheme: bright white and light grey. On the face of the device, where the output tray is, HP has place the power button, memory card slot, the Photosmart Express button and the Proof Sheet button. Above that, on the top, is the control panel, which has a series of buttons and indicators, and while it doesn't have an LCD display, HP has configured it well, and it's relatively simple to use. There are some issues with the design: it's prone to paper jams, and you generally have to sit or crouch to use it.


The biggest benefit to the HP C3100 is that it gives you everything - colour printing, copying, faxing, and scanning - all at an extremely affordable price. You're simply not going to find many machines with this scope of functionality geared toward the home user at this price point. Also important is that the HP C3100 cartridges are cheap, and they provide good page yields.


The HP C3100 certainly gives you a lot of versatility, and the printer prints text extremely well and photos reasonably well. But beyond that, the HP C3100 does not shine. It is a jack-of-all-trades, master of none. Therefore, while it is an excellent option for people who print seldom and want flexibility, it is not a good option for those who will print regularly and put demands on their device. In addition, the small processor and the small amount of non-upgradeable memory cause this machine to behave sluggishly on anything but the smallest print jobs.
