Instant ink printer - turn off for holidays?

HP envy photo 6230


I have the HP Envy photo 6230 printer. It is wifi/ internet connected on the instant ink program.

I will be on holiday for a few weeks and no one at home will use the printer.

Can I just turn it off completely for the duration, or will that upset the instant ink system?

Instant ink printer - turn off for holidays?

Hey there! @Tonka1,


Yes, you can turn off the printer if you are not using it.


However, Charges may apply when you have a free trial or a free plan, or if you are still using the cartridges that came with your printer. Here’s why you might be charged:

  • Your free plan or free trial is for a defined number of printed pages per month. If you print more, there is a charge.

  • When a trial period ends, billing begins even if the initial set of cartridges that came with the printer have not been exhausted.


If you do not use all your plan pages in a month, the unused pages will be kept in your account and automatically rolled over to the next month. You can roll over up to two times the number of pages in your monthly plan.

Hope this answers your query!


I hope you have a great day! 🙂
