364 XL ink compatible with HP Deskjet 3070?

 

I am getting conflicting info as to whether the 3070 model (B611 series) accepts the XL ink cartridges.

 

In the HP literature that came with the printer (& the shop that just sold me the printer) it says "yes compatible".

 

But, when I open the compartment I do not see enough space in the carousel of 4 ink cartridges to put a larger sized (black) cartridge.

 

The only reference I find online is:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c02435884&lang=en&cc=us&taskI...

which also implies "no".

 

I just want to check I am not missing something, and I would appreciate any definitive answer please.

The model should support the larger (XL) cartridges.

 

The Black is the only one that appears larger in size. The XL colors will each fit in their normal space, leaving just enough room for the XL black. I would use this document as a reference:

Thanks for reply - I agree that it "should" but there is a size issue...

The regular 364 black fits snuggly in its slot - there is no space at the sides for any bigger cartridge.

My understanding is that the 364XL cartridge is larger in physical size than the regular 364. If that is the case, then how can it fit?

Or am I wrong on the physical size issue (I am simply going on what the shop told me re. size)?

Thanks for your continued advice.

I know this may sound random, what country was this printer purchased in? It might use a different set of cartridges and simply be compatible with some of the cartridges of another set.

Purchased in Switzerland.
It is the Series B611. I assumed the series was the same in all countries?
What think?

As far as I know, I can't purchase the 3070 in the States.

 

However, the 364XL "should" fit. It will be snug. The cartridge isn't too much wider than standard size.

Thank you for all your advice.
Ultimately I may just have to risk wasting money & buying an XL to give it a go!
I'll let you/ the forum know...

I have the same problem.  364xl black is too wide for hp3070.  Could you please advise me how to solve this issue?

Hey - thank you - it did fit in the end. The actual cartridge size is only minutely smaller, but packed with more ink, and does fit in the very lsightly larger slot.

Really helpful. Best regards.
