Walk into the ink cartridges
section of any office supply store and you'll find people visibly unsure of what to get. You might have found yourself in the same predicament. Was that number on the back of the box supposed to be a 90 or a 91? Mistakes like these can be made easily. But making sure that you buy the right ink cartridges is important to ensuring that your printer will work properly.
True, you could luck out. Sometimes the wrong cartridge might fit in your printer. This usually only happens with black printer ink
, though. But even if it were to fit, that doesn't necessarily mean it will work properly. Even if you can coax the cartridge into the printer, using it might cause it to crack. Having ink leakage inside the printer could ruin your machine.
The replacement of color printer ink has its own difficulty. If you buy the wrong color ink, your printouts may come out looking incorrect. Buying the ink cartridges specified by the maker of your printer is the only way to make sure that what appears on paper matches what is on your screen.
If you can't remember what ink goes with your printer, you can find this information online. Retailers can recommend what ink to use based on the model of your printer.
