If you are using a new printer for the first time, you may not be familiar with what sort of cartridges work with the printer. Every printer prints with a specific printer cartridge series. Printer cartridge series are identified by the printer brand name, followed by a cartridge number. For example, the HP OfficeJet Pro 6968 uses the HP 902 ink cartridge series.
1. The easiest way to figure out what cartridges work with your printer is by opening up the printer to see what cartridges are currently inside the machine.
2. If there are no cartridges inside the printer, you can search for the printer model on the manufacturer’s website. A list of compatible cartridges should be included on the manufacturer page of your printer.
3. You can also confirm the cartridge series by referencing the printer’s user guide that is included with the machine.
