Hi @Felix1005

Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you.

 

You may store the ink cartridges in an airtight container/plastic bags and the printer just stays as it is. You cannot do anything for the printer.

 

If you do not use the printer for 3-6 months, before using it, make sure you clean the printhead to clear the nozzles. It would have dried up or blocked.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
