HP Printers - How Do I Find My Model or Printer Number?

This document is for HP inkjet and LaserJet printers.
This document describes how to find the model number of your printer. A model number is a unique numeric or alphanumeric code used to identify a particular version of a printer. There are different areas on the body of a printer where model numbers are commonly located. Look for the printer model number in one area, and then check another area if you do not find the model number.
The same series of a printer might have several different models with varying features. The printers pictured below are examples, and while your printer might look different, the areas where model numbers might be located should be applicable.
The following are example model numbers that might look similar to the model number on your printer:
  • HP Deskjet 1515 Printer
  • HP ENVY 4530 All in One Printer
  • HP LaserJet M1120 Multifunction Printer
  • HP Officejet 4610 All in One Printer
  • HP Officejet 6500a Plus All-in-One Printer
 note:
Do not confuse the model number (for example, HP LaserJet M1120) with the part number (for example, Q1234), which is used to order printer parts.
Watch a short video to learn how to find the model number, product number, and serial number for your product.
