Maintenance of the cartridge

On HP Deskjet printers, opening the access door of the printer automatically moves the print cartridge to the center of the mechanism for easy access.
The printer automatically performs priming, cleaning and capping of the print cartridge to maintain optimum quality. These operations are not visible to the user.
Proper use and handling will provide optimum print quality and print cartridge life. To keep the print cartridges in good working order, print once a month to keep the nozzles clear, and observe the following table.
Do not
Keep print cartridges sealed in the original packaging until ready to use. Ink can evaporate through the nozzles and through the plastic print cartridge body, reducing print cartridge life. Print cartridges have a longer life when sealed in the packaging.
After opening a print cartridge, store it in the printer in the "home position" to help prevent ink from drying out in the nozzles. This will minimize the risk of contamination with airborne dust particles.
Press the POWER button to turn off the printer rather than unplugging the printer or powering the unit off via a surge protector.
Do not cut power to the printer without turning off the power button. Pressing the POWER button caps the print cartridge in the service station, preventing ink from drying in the print cartridge nozzles.
Store print cartridges at room temperature.
Do not re-tape the print cartridge if removed from the printer. If the print cartridge must be removed, store it at room temperature in a rigid sealed plastic container. Make sure that the nozzles on the bottom of the print cartridge do not touch the side of the container.
Store unopened print cartridges in an upright position.
Do not store an unopened print cartridge on its side for long periods of time.
