Maintaining the print cartridges
The following tips will help maintain HP print cartridges and ensure consistent print quality:
Keep all print cartridges in their sealed packages until they are needed. Print cartridges
should be stored at room temperatures between 15° to 35° C (59° to 95° F).
Do not remove the plastic tape covering the ink nozzles until you are ready to install the
print cartridge in the printer. If the plastic tape has been removed from the print cartridge,
do not attempt to reattach it. Reattaching the tape damages the print cartridge.
