HP recommends plain papers with the ColorLok logo for printing and copying of everyday
documents. All papers with the ColorLok logo are independently tested to meet high standards

dry faster than ordinary plain papers. Look for papers with the ColorLok logo in a variety of

You can easily check the ink supply level to determine how soon you might need to replace an ink
cartridge. The ink supply level shows an estimate of the amount of ink remaining in the ink cartridges.
To check the ink levels
1.
2.
Depending on your operating system, do one of the following to open the printer software:
●
Windows 8: On the Start screen, right-click an empty area on the screen, click All Apps on
the app bar, and then click the icon with the printer's name.
●
Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP: From the computer desktop, click Start,
select All Programs, click HP, click HP Deskjet 2540 series, and then click HP Deskjet
2540 series.
In the printer software, click Estimated Ink Levels.
NOTE: If you have installed a refilled or remanufactured ink cartridge, or an ink cartridge that has
been used in another printer, the ink level indicator might be inaccurate or unavailable.
NOTE: Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you
receive a low-ink warning message, consider having a replacement ink cartridge available to avoid
possible printing delays. You do not have to replace the ink cartridges until the print quality is
unacceptable.
NOTE: Ink from the ink cartridges is used in the printing process in a number of different ways,
including in the initialization process, which prepares the printer and cartridges for printing, and in
printhead servicing, which keeps print nozzles clear and ink flowing smoothly. In addition, some
residual ink is left in the ink cartridge after it is used. For more information, see www.hp.com/go/

Cartridge warranty information
The HP cartridge warranty is applicable when the cartridge is used in its designated HP printing
device. This warranty does not cover HP ink cartridges that have been refilled, remanufactured,
refurbished, misused, or tampered with.
During the warranty period, the cartridge is covered as long as the HP ink is not depleted and the end
of warranty date has not been reached. The end of warranty date, in YYYY/MM/DD format, may be
found on the cartridge as indicated:
For a copy of the HP Limited Warranty Statement, see the printed documentation that came with the

Tips for working with cartridges
Use the following tips to work with cartridges:
ENWW
●
To protect the cartridges from drying out, always turn the printer off using the On button, and
wait until the On button light goes out.
●
Do not open or untape cartridges until you are ready to install them. Leaving tape on the
cartridges reduces ink evaporation.
●
Insert the cartridges into the correct slots. Match the color and icon of each cartridge to the color
and icon for each slot. Make sure the cartridges snap into place.
●
Align the printer for best print quality. See Improve print quality on page 58 for more
information.
●
When the Estimated Ink Levels screen shows one or both cartridges in a low state, consider
getting replacement cartridges to avoid possible printing delays. You do not need to replace the
cartridges until print quality becomes unacceptable. See Replace ink cartridges on page 41 for
more information.
●
If you remove a cartridge from the printer for any reason, try to replace it again as soon as
possible. Outside of the printer, if unprotected, cartridges begin to dry out.

Identify a defective cartridge
If both the tri-color and black ink cartridge lights are blinking, and the On button light is on, both
cartridges may still have tape on, be very low on ink, or are missing. First make sure that the pink
tape has been removed from both cartridges, and that both ink cartridges are installed. If both ink
cartridge lights are still blinking, then one or both cartridges may be defective. To determine if one
cartridge is defective, do the following:
ENWW
1.
Remove the black ink cartridge.
2.
Close the cartridge access door.
3.
If the On button light blinks quickly, replace the tri-color cartridge. If the On button light does not

Wipe only the contacts with a dry swab or lint-free cloth.
CAUTION: Be careful to wipe only the contacts, and do not smear any of the ink or other
debris elsewhere on the ink cartridge.
