HP Smart Tank Printers - Refill the ink tanks

Refill ink in one or more ink tanks of your HP Smart Tank 670, 720, 750, 790, 7000, 7300, or 7600 series printer when the ink level is low.

Fill the ink tanks

Fill empty or low ink tanks using official bottles of HP ink.

Be aware of the following when working with ink bottles:

  • Keep the ink bottles beyond the reach of children.

  • Open the ink bottle only when you are filling the ink tanks.

  • Store the ink bottles upright in a cool, dry place.

CAUTION:

To avoid possible printhead damage, do not install the printheads until you have filled the ink tanks.

  1. From the left side of the printer, lift the ink access door.

  5. Match the color of the ink bottle with the color of the ink tank. Hold the bottle on the tank nozzle, making sure the tip of the bottle fits properly over the nozzle, and let the ink drain into the tank until the tank is full.

    If the bottle does not start draining, remove it, and then reinsert it onto the tank. Do not squeeze the bottle.
