Hp 470 ink: HP OfficeJet H470 Ink Cartridges

How to Replace an Empty Ink Cartridge in the HP Officejet h570 Printer series – an Illustrated Tutorial in 11 Steps – Replacethatpart.com

Make sure you purchase the right ink cartridges for your specific printer and printer region or have your old ones refilled. Cartridges are not compatible between different brands, and often not within the same brand. Unlike other inkjet manufacturers, HP often designs its inkjet hardware to use country-specific consumables. When you unbox a new HP inkjet printer and set it up, you install a set of ink tanks that ship with the printer. As you turn on the device and get ready to use it, an initialization sequence localizes it to the country associated with the ink cartridges you installed.

HP recommends that you use original HP ink cartridges. XL (Extra Large) cartridges cost more but do provide better value in the long run. They will be able to print at least double the pages of a regular cartridge. However, (original) HP XL cartridges for the HP Officejet h570 Printer are NOT available.

You can check the ink levels by using the software (Toolbox) installed with the HP Deskjet.
Open the Toolbox from the HP Solution Center, or from HP Digital Imaging Monitor in the system tray (right click), or from the Printer Properties.
– The tab Estimated Ink Level shows the estimated ink level for each cartridge.

The printer lights also indicate the cartridge status. The left print cartridge light blinks when the left print cartridge is absent or improperly functioning. It turns on solid when the ink is low or empty. The right print cartridge light blinks when the right print cartridge is absent or improperly functioning. It turns on solid when the ink is low or empty.

Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. You do not have to replace the cartridges until the print quality is unacceptable. If one of the print cartridges runs out of ink before you can replace it, you can still print with a single print cartridge. Printing with one print cartridge might be slower and the print quality might be affected. It is recommended to print with both print cartridges.

Which ink cartridges do I need for my HP Officejet h570 Printer?

Three print cartridges are available for use with the printer.

1. Black
2. Tri-color
3. Photo

Everyday printing: Use the black and tri-color print cartridges for everyday print jobs.
– Quality color photos: For more vibrant colors when printing color photographs or other special documents, remove the black print cartridge and use a photo print cartridge in combination with the tri-color print cartridge.

For your US HP Officejet h570 Printer you need HP 94 Black OR HP 98 Black cartridges AND HP 95 Tri-color OR HP 97 Tri-color cartridges.

For printing photos use HP 99 Photo Original cartridges.

For your European or UK HP Officejet h570 Printer you need HP 337 Black OR HP 338 Black cartridges AND HP 343 Tri-color OR HP 344 Tri-color cartridges.

For printing photos use HP 348 Photo Original cartridges.

Replace the ink cartridges

1. Press and hold the power button to turn on the printer, if it is not already on. Printer lights will flash in sequence. Wait until the power light is the only printer light that remains lit.

2. Load unused, plain white letter or A4-sized paper in the tray, if you have not already done so.

Remove the empty cartridge
3. Open the front access cover. Wait for the carriage to stop moving. This should take only a few seconds.

4. Lift the print cartridge latch open and gently remove the empty print cartridge from its cradle compartment. Remove the cartridge from the slot on the left to replace the tri-color cartridge. Remove the cartridge from the slot on the right to replace the black cartridge OR photo print cartridges.

Insert a new cartridge
5. Remove the new cartridge from its packaging. Be careful to touch only the black plastic.

– Remove the copper electrical strip.
– Touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink nozzles.
– Replace the protective tape on the contacts.

6. Gently remove the plastic tape on the cartridge by pulling the colored pull tab.

7. Hold the print cartridge with the copper contacts facing the printer, and then slide the print cartridge into its cradle compartment at the same angle at which you removed the old print cartridge. If you are installing the tri-color print cartridge, slide it into the left slot. If you are installing the black OR photo print cartridge, slide it into the right slot.

8. Close the print cartridge latch. If the cartridge is inserted correctly, closing the latch gently pushes the cartridge into its cradle compartment. Press the latch to make sure it is seated flat on the cartridge.

9. Repeat step 4 to 8 to replace the other cartridge, if necessary.

10. Close the front access cover. Wait for the carriage to complete the print cartridge initialization routine and return to the home position at the left side of the printer before using the printer.

Align the ink cartridges.
11. Whenever you install a new print cartridge, you should align the print cartridges for the best possible print quality. If your printout is grainy, has stray dots, jagged edges, or the ink is bleeding into another color, you can re-align them through the Toolbox.

Open the Toolbox from the HP Solution Center, or from HP Digital Imaging Monitor in the system tray (right click), or from the Printer Properties.
– Click the Printer Services tab, and then click Align Print Cartridges.
– Follow the onscreen instructions.

HP OfficeJet h570 Mobile Inkjet Printer Review

Most people think of HP’s OfficeJet range of printers as all-in-one machines. While most of them are, the range is actually about inkjet-based printers of all types and the h570 is a mobile single-function printer. Based on a similar technology to HPs dedicated photo printers, but with a separate black cartridge as well as the tri-colour one, the OfficeJet h570 can run from mains or battery and through USB, Bluetooth or WiFi.

In fact, the base model, reviewed here, doesn’t include a battery, which is a lithium ion clip-on option, or either of the wireless connections, which are made through plug-in, flash-drive-style adapters. What you do get is a neat, dark grey and silver unit, about the size of one of the Duchess of Cornwall’s handbags – rather bulkier than the Queen’s…err, we would estimate.

To start using the printer you must lift the lid to create the paper feed tray, while the front cover drops down automatically when you switch the printer on. There’s a second top cover, hidden by the first, which reveals the two ink cartridges, one black and the other tri-colour.

The control panel is very simple, with buttons for paper feed and to cancel a job, as well to switch the machine on and off. There are three indicators, for low ink in either cartridge and for paper jams. On the left-hand side is a USB socket for the optional WiFi or Bluetooth adapters and a second for SD and multimedia cards. At the back are sockets for a USB 2.0 PC connection and a PictBridge camera.

Setup with a PC takes the usual form of running the software CD and connecting the USB cable, when instructed to. If you want to make connection via either of the wireless options, you follow separate instructions, as you do if you want to connect the optional battery pack, which clips onto the back of the printer.

The two ink cartridges slip into their holders on the head carrier and are unusually awkward to fit in the right position. Although there are diagrams in the setup sheet, it’s quite fiddly to get them in at the right angle and push them up into place.

You often have to make do with sub-standard print when looking at results from a portable printer, but not here. Text print from the OfficeJet h570 is clean and with little spread into the fibres. Even small font sizes only show slight fuzziness around the edges.

Colour graphics are also clean and areas of solid colour fill are dense and generally free from stripes or other artefacts. Photo prints are well reproduced, with very little visible colour dither across varying colour tones and high levels of detail in both fully lit and partially lit photos. Colours are generally natural and photo prints are well up to the standard of HP’s dedicated photo inkjets.

HP quotes print speeds for both black and colour of 1.5ppm. This is a cause for true amazement in the TrustedReviews team, as the speeds we saw were better in both cases in normal print mode. Our five-page, black text print completed in 59 seconds, giving a speed of 5.08ppm, while the colour text print, although taking longer at 2:07, still gives a real world speed of 2.36ppm.

We’re not sure what the world’s coming to when printer makers start quoting speeds which are not just realistic, but underestimate what their printers are capable of. The best 15 x 10cm photo print time we measured was 1:27, which compares favourably with, for example, the Photosmart A826, a dedicated photo printer which in best print mode, like the h570, took 1:35 for the same print.

The only costs in running the printer are the ink cartridges. They appear to be two nearly identical black cartridges, numbers 337 and 338, both of which are quoted as being 14ml cartridges and both of which seem to sell at approximately the same price. However, HP quotes the 338 cartridge as yielding 500 ISO pages, while the 337 yields only 440. Guess which cartridge we’d go for?

With the tri-colour cartridges, there’s a definite difference between the 343 and 344, with the 344 quoted as yielding 600 pages. Using the two, higher-yielding cartridges gives page costs of 3p for black and 5.87p for colour; both these are good for a colour inkjet printer, especially one intended for the portable market.


There’s quite a bit going for this diminutive inkjet printer, though surprisingly size is not one of its killer features. It’s easy to use and versatile if you opt for the WiFi or Bluetooth adapters and the lithium ion battery. It’s a bit surprising that as a portable printer the battery isn’t included as standard, but it’s equally surprising that running costs are no higher than a standard desktop machine and that speeds, while unremarkable, are both higher than HP’s claims.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our support team searches for useful product information and answers to frequently asked questions. If you find an inaccuracy in our frequently asked questions, please let us know by using our contact form.

My ink cartridge is new, but it won’t print, why is that? Verified
New ink cartridges always come with a sticker on the print head, preventing that they dry out inside the packaging. Remove this sticker to make sure ink can come out the cartridge.

I want to print something full-page, but whatever I do, there will always remain a white edge. Why is that? Verified
Most printers are not able to print borderless, because the printer needs a place to hold the paper. Because of this there will always be a white edge.

This was helpful (55) share

What is the difference between an inkjet and a laser printer? Verified
The biggest difference between these two types of printer is the technology. An inkjet printer places extremely small droplets of ink on the paper. Because the ink is liquid, the printhead can dry out over time. Regular printing is needed to prevent this. A laser printer applies toner (black or coloured powder) to the paper. The powder can’t dry out, making regular printing unneccesary. Also, on average laser printers work faster than inkjet printers.

What does DPI stand for? Verified
DPI stands for Dots Per Inch and indicates how sharp prints will be. More DPI results in sharper prints.

This was helpful (19) share

My ink cartridge has dried out, what can I do? Verified
There are cartridges with and without print head. Only the cartridges with printhead can be declogged yourself. Take a cotton swab and dip it in luke warm water. Carefully rub over the print head, without making it too wet. Repeat if necessary.

This was helpful (18) share

The printed documents are crooked, what can I do? Verified
There are several things that can cause this. The paper could be loaded incorrectly. It is possible that the paper does not have the correct specifications to match this printer. It could be that the selected paper size does not match the actual paper. If none of this solves the problem, contact the manufacturer.

This was helpful (12) share

Can every printer print on photo paper? Verified
No, this is a special feature that some printers have. This partly due to the thickness of the photo paper.

This was helpful (10) share

What does SD stand for? Verified
SD stands for Secure Digital. SD cards are the standard storage medium for many digital cameras.

This was helpful (4) share

What is paper thickness? Verified
Paper thickness is indicated by weight, for example 80 grams paper. This is the weight of the paper at one square meter. Heavier paper is ticker and sturdier.

This was helpful (3) share

What paper thickness can I best use in my printer? Verified
A normal consumer printer generally uses 80 grams paper thickness. Other standard weights that are often used are 120 grams and 160 grams.

Ink level of nearly unused photo…” : Bugs : HPLIP

Bug #239982 “HP OfficeJet h570: Ink level of nearly unused photo…” : Bugs : HPLIP

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone







Bug Description

I use HPLIP 2. 8.5 on Intrepid 64-bit (Ubuntu package). I have an HP OfficeJet h570 connected via USB with color cartridge and photo cartridge. The ink level display of both the hp-toolbox and the hp-levels command show the ink level of the photo cartridge as 0% (but its health as Good/OK). The photo cartridge is nearly unused, only some alignment and text pages printed, no photo. The color cartridge is correctly shown with 94%. Also the battery level is correctly shown (only in hp-toolbox).

Here we go (I have run the commands as root due to Ubuntu bug 318262):

[email protected]:~/ubuntu/ghostscript/tmp$ sudo hp-levels -p Officejet_h570

Well, not sure if what I say in this comment is not already known… let’s say it, I’ll be sure then.
It may not really be linked, I know next to nothing about HP printers.
This model is very near model listed as needing MANUAL reset of ink used (with Windows software I think):

HP Officejet 500, 600, and 700: HP Fax 910 and 920
These models count the ink drops used by the cartridge. You must manually reset the counter when a new cartridge is inserted. To reset the counter, follow the steps below:

Turn on the unit.
Open the top cover to access the print cartridges.
Remove the new cartridge that is causing the message.
Reinsert the cartridge and close the cover. The following message will appear on the front panel: “Press 1 for new cartridge or press 2 for a used cartridge.”
Press the 1 on the numeric keypad of the HP product.

If the message, press 1 for new cartridge or press 2 for a used cartridge, “does not appear after removing and reinstalling the new cartridge, and the low ink warning message still displays, follow the steps below:

Turn on the unit.
Open the top cover to access the ink cartridges.
After the cartridges stop moving, unplug the power cord.
Remove both cartridges and close the top cover.
Plug the power back in. The unit will reinitialize and a message will appear to insert the cartridges.
Open the top cover and reinsert the ink cartridges. Close the top cover. The message, “Press 1 for new cartridge or press 2 for a used cartridge,” should appear. If it still does not appear, the unit may require service.

Maybe hplip fail to implement step 6?
