I have an HP Photosmart 5510 printer, model # B111A. I purchased a 564XL black ink cartridge for it, and I can't get it to fit. I checked the instructions on how to change the ink, but it didn't say anything about why the XL won't fit. The HP website says it's compatible with my printer, so why won't it fit, and is there anything special I have to do to install it?

Re: 564xl black ink cartridge doesn't fit, even though hp website says it should. what's wrong?

The thinner 564XL black ink is figure 1 on Ciara_B 's post. You just need to make sure the part number is CN684W or CN680W. I know eBay has them. The retail package that are sold in the store usually does not have part number.
Another question I see in this thread, some users confuse black with "photo black" which are not the same.

same problem with me
**bleep**?? I bought the cartridge and it clearly does not fit (on-line, so returns are a pain)
(Also, that is a ridiculous process to sign on to this website)

The body size has changed on the newer cartridges, take a look at this document:
Hope that helps.
I was a support engineer for HP.
If the advice resolved the situation, please mark it as a solution. Thank you.

No I already read it, and it didn't help. It tells how to install the new smaller cartridge in the larger slot. The larger cartridge just plain won't fit in the slot on my printer, it's just too small for it, so I have a cartridge that is full, but completely useless to me, and I can't return it because it's been opened. HP should have changed the item number on the new cartridge to 564XL2 in order to distinguish it from the older larger model which does not fit in the newest printers, even though the HP website said it should. There should also have been a notation on the item's web page alerting customers to this discrepancy. Sounds like false advertising to me.

I have a Potosmart 6510. Same problem.
Yes, the 564xl black I got can not fit into the 564 black slot at all. I called tech support. He had no idea. He refused to do some research and asked me to return the ink cartridge.

After doing more research, I found out there are two version of 564XL black.
The old CB321WN#140 version is supposed to be 3X more pages. It is wider. If this one dosn't fit your newer printer(such as my HP Photosmart 5610), the new CN684WN#140 might fit. It is only 2X more pages. I have not tried it. Can anybody confirm this?
