No.

Your printer only uses below cartridges in Italy, not any other cartridge:

A C1816A (HP 16) Photo Inkjet Cartridges is intended for an HP DeskJet 610 / 630 / 640 / 650 / 690  models only, not for any other.

Thank you very much!!!

So, I can't even try to put photo catridge C1816A in HP Deskjet 6540? It just wouldn't work?

Or it's only "advisable" use a specified cartridge with a specific type of printer?

Thank you again!
