Printer cartridge capacity

I just wanted to know if anyone knows approximately how many pages I can get from the cartridge 61 on the HP 3050 all-in-one deskjet printer.

Re: Printer cartridge capacity



You can find the info HERE. Be aware that the pageyield is measured with 5% coverage.

Re: Printer cartridge capacity



go to this link: and simply enter your printer or cartridge number and it will give you the page yield.


Page yield is measured using standard ISO pages,details are here:


I don't know what the exact coverage is but as you can see the pages are intended to represent typical printing.

Re: Printer cartridge capacity

I have an HP 6480 All In One Inkjet Printer, ~4 years old. I find the #74 black cartridges expire rather quickly

I am printing articles from online newspapers so the jobs are ~ 95% text, only in black. The last cartridge yielded 165 pages, 8.5X11 inches. I had an empty #75 HP Tricolor cartridge installed, but selected black only from the preferences page.

The link I checked did not explain explicitly what my yield should be. What should I expect?


Also, I get a message on the printer display that cartridge alignment must be performed every time I turn on the printer. What is causing this? I can use ok, cancel to return to ready state, so this is mostly an annoyance.


Any input would be appreciated.
