HP 970/971/980 ink cartridges.
InkOwl inks are not UNIVERSAL. This means that our inks are specially formulated to suit your specific printer or cartridge. If you cannot find your printer or cartridge model in any of our ads, do not hesitate to contact us. We probably support your printer.
Our pigment ink for HP 970/971/972/980/981/982/990 is of an extremely high quality. It matches HP specifications in all aspects from color reproduction to viscosity and pigment diameter. This allows the ink to flow smoothly through the printhead all while offering an excellent reproduction of original colors. This ink yields prints resistant to fading from UV exposure, smudging, and water.
A pigmented ink that closely matches the physical characteristics of the original HP ink, like this one, is essential for quality results and for the proper functioning of your full-width printhead.
This ink kit can be used to refill either original HP cartridges or used with our refillable cartridge systems for HP 970, 971, 980.
NOTE about refilling original HP 970/971/980 series ink cartridges:
Although the printer will not display the ink level of an original HP cartridge that has been refilled, the printer will not refuse to print unless there is physically no ink remaining in the cartridge. However, if ever a cartridge does become physically completely empty, the printer will display an "Ink Cartridge Depleted" error and refuse to print, even once you refill that cartridge. If this occurs, the only way to reuse that first cartridge is to install a different one, close the cartridge cover, and then reinstall the first. The second cartridge can be a brand-new original cartridge or a refilled cartridge. On the other hand, if you're using our Refillable Cartridges, there is no problem, since you will have your original HP set to use as a second. However, if you do plan on refilling your originals, and you only have access to one set of ink cartridges, it will be essential to carefully monitor the amount of ink in the cartridges to prevent them from ever running dry.
NOTE about refilling HP 972/973/974/975/976/981/982/990/991/992/993 series ink cartridges:
In order to successfully refill these printers, it is absolutely essential to own two sets of cartridges. Once your first cartridge becomes "Depleted", remove it and install the second cartridge. The second cartridge can be a brand-new original cartridge or a different refilled cartridge. Once that second cartridge becomes "Depleted", you can reinstall the first cartridge. Later on, when that cartridge becomes "Depleted", you will reinstall the other one, always alternating between your two cartridges. Note that you must only refill the cartridges once they have run completely dry, and the "Cartridge Depleted" message has appeared onscreen, never sooner.
