  • The sets of cartridges for this printer have four 'small' cartridges, CYMK used for photo printing, but there is a fifth larger black cartridge in this printer, also labelled 364XL which is used for printing documents and faxes. Do you sell these larger cartridges. They are the same length and depth but about three times the width of the 364XL photo printing cartridges?

    HP C309a black cartridge

    HP have recently reduced the size of the HP 364XL black cartridge and changed the part number from 'CB321EE' to 'CN684EE', so it now appears the same size as the colour cartridges. The price of the cartridge has also been reduced to reflect this lower volume of ink. The black cartridge in the 364XL multipack is the CN684EE which replaces the larger CB321EE black ink cartridge that you've previously used in your printer.

    The HP 364XL multipack (HP364XL-PACK) contains the following high capacity ink cartridges:

    - Black (CN684EE)

    - Cyan (CB323EE)

    - Magenta (CB324EE)

    - Yellow (CB325EE)

    The 5th ink cartridge required for your printer (HP Photosmart Premium Fax C309a) is the photo black cartridge (CB322EE) which is sold separately. This cartridge is not contained in the genuine multipacks as not all printer models that require 364XL cartridges require a photo black.

    However, you can buy a pack of all 5 compatible HP 364XL ink cartridges on our website at:

  • I have a HP Photosmart C309a bought in March 2010. There are two black cartridges, one is black ink and the other is photo ink. Why is the photo ink not available? Also, why isn't my new iPhone 4 app not compatible any more? All too much technology that never works!

    Black HP C309a ink cartridges

    The photo black HP C309a ink cartridge is available in three different cartridges, we just don't include it in the genuine HP 364XL multipack. Please see:

  • I have two types of black ink for my Photosmart Premium Fax C309a. One ink cartridge is normal sized (same as the coloured ones), the other is slightly thicker. Could you please advise me what the reference for the thicker one is please so that when ordering, I get the correct one delivered? Thanks, Dave.

    Ordering the correct HP 364XL black ink

    The slightly thicker cartridge would have been the CB321EE also known as HP 364XL black. This has been discontinued by HP and has been replaced with the CN684EE which is also the HP 364XL black, this is the cartridge that you will need. This new CN684EE cartridge is the same size as the other black cartridge that your printer takes, the CB322EE HP 364XL photo black.

  • There seems to be 3 different black options for my printer which is a HP Photosmart 309a series. I'm looking to purchase the wider black cartridge which sits on the far right of the cartridge carriage. I know that CN684EE is not correct, neither do I want the photo black which sits on the far left of the cartridge carriage- Can you help please?

    Black 364XL wider (25mm) cartridge

    It's possible that you're referring to the old cartridge (CB321EE). This has now been discontinued and replaced by the smaller CN684EE cartridge. Although the CN684EE is smaller it still fits the black slot and is the item that you need to purchase from now on. The updated 364XL cartridge can be seen here:

  • Why don't you sell a pack of the three colours and two black inks because I always get confused between the two different black inks that I need for my machine? Please mark the inks separately because I don't know the difference.

    HP 364XL multipacks

    This is because not all printers which use 364 / 364XL cartridges require the photo black cartridge. If we included it in a multipack we would have far more calls / emails from people complaining they have received an unwanted / incompatible cartridge.

    The additional black (which is not contained within the genuine 364XL multipack) you require is the photo black and can be purchased separately. Please see: https://www.cartridgesave.co.uk/CB322EE.html

  • I've purchased the black 364XL ink cartridge and it seems to be too wide for my printer? Please advise?

    HP Photosmart C309A - HP364XL black won't fit

    The HP Photosmart C309a printer uses two types of black cartridge, a regular black and a photo black. Please ensure that you're installing your HP 364XL black cartridge into the correct slot. To help you, the regular black 364XL cartridge is the wider one and has a pentagon symbol on the cartridge. The photo black 364XL cartridge is thinner and has a bow tie symbol on the cartridge. If you're still having problems please contact a member of our telephone support team.

  • I've currently run out of all ink, would my Photosmart Premium Fax C309a printer still work if I just order the wider black ink cartridge so that I can just print documentation? (I really can't afford to buy them all at the moment!)

    Black ink for Photosmart C309a

    The HP Photosmart Premium Fax All-in-One C309a is a colour printer so it's likely to need all five of the separate black, photo black, cyan, magenta and yellow cartridges (HP 364 or HP 364XL) installed with some remaining ink in each cartridge in order top be able to print in any colour. If it's possible to override this setting to print in black only then this should be documented in your user guide. This can be downloaded from the following page on HP's website: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?cc=uk&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3737195&

HP Photosmart Premium Fax C309a Printer Review

Expert review of the HP Photosmart Premium Fax C309a printer

Our Verdict:

A sleek multifunction printer that delivers high-quality prints, the Photosmart Premium Fax C309a is quite expensive in terms of initial investment and running costs. Still, it is one of the most comprehensive solutions for small office settings that demand a lot of functionality from a single printer.


The Photosmart Premium Fax C309a is well designed with rounded edges, a user-friendly control panel with smooth white buttons, and a glossy white plastic body. It is surprisingly lighter than other multifunction printers at 10.4 kilograms and rather compact, with dimensions of 28.3x46.8x47.3cm. The LCD screen measures 2.4 inches and is found beside the control panel; it can be pivoted for convenience. The Photosmart Premium Fax C309a lets you print directly from your SD card, a PictBridge-compatible device, xD, CompactFlash, and MemoryStick. It also features multiple connectivity options like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and a USB Port.


HP's Photosmart Premium Fax C309a is a business-friendly choice with an automatic double-sided printing feature, a fax machine, and the automatic document feeder. There are separate feeding trays for photo paper and standard A4 paper. Pictures print quickly - 26 seconds for 4x6 pictures, and about a minute and 9 seconds when printing on A4 paper.


The LCD screen is small and Wi-Fi connectivity is limited to existing networks, so you cannot create a separate ad-hoc network. The Photosmart Premium Fax C309a is quite expensive, too.
