  • From General Technology, you are getting an original manufactured product, filled at the HP factory in Ireland.

  • Know your cartridges—the difference between an original manufactured cartridge and a refilled cartridge—

    is QUALITY

  • What goes into a cartridge—calibrations of many kinds…monitoring of air pressure, filling procedural quality control to make sure the environment is dust free, and so much more.

  • General Technology GUARANTEES quality. And we want you to know how to get the most out of each and every cartridge.

When to clean

When to Clean?

  • When received – A new cartridge is not necessarily a clean cartridge.

  • When inactive for more than 2 hours

  • When streaks are noticed in the printed image

  • If cartridges are used in an environment with high amounts of paper dust or debris, cartridges may need to be cleaned more frequently.


How to clean preparation

How to Clean - Preparation

  • Use cotton-free, fibreless, clean “tech wipes” are best – no paper towels or cotton rags.

  • Fold wipe once, and place folded cloth on a firm, flat surface.

  • Moisten an area on cloth approximately 1” X 4” with water (de-ionized is best, bottled water such as Dasani or Poland Springs is better than tap water.)

  • Fold wipe once, and place folded cloth on a firm, flat surface.


Cleaning procedure

Cleaning Procedure

  • Place cartridge – pen nozzles down – on damp area with approximately 1-2 pounds of downward pressure, and hold for 1-2 seconds to allow ink to “wick”.

  • Wipe slowly across long-axis facing down with one 3” stroke, pulling in the same direction as the nozzle lines. Two lines of ink should appear if nozzles are clear.

  • Do not wipe in dry area of cloth – this may scratch or damage nozzles.

  • Repeat as necessary

  • If streaks still appear after cleaning, execute Purge operation.

  • DO NOT CLEAN WITH SOLVENTS OR CHEMICAL CLEANERS. DO NOT IMMERSE CARTRIDGES IN ANY LIQUID.


Cartridge storage

Cartridge Storage

  • Place cartridges nozzles up in a plastic (e.g. Tupperware) container. For best results, put sponge on bottom of container before placing cartridge in. Tightly seal container.

  • Store plastic container in a dry, dust free environment
