Can I use a different ink cartridge for my printer?

HP Recommended
Example: HP3050A

My printer is the HP3050A Deskjet and it is just compatible with 122 HP ink cartridges. Can I use ink cartridge with a different number? The printer is from UAE and I am having a hard time finding a 122 HP ink cartridges here in the Philippines.

If you moved to another country, you should contact HP and reset your printer for your current region.


You should get genuine and In-Warranty HP 61 Black and Tri-color cartridges and have the printer connected to a computer, then contact HP Support in the Philippines to reset the printer for your current country:
