# copies HP represents per 64 cartridge

HP Recommended

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Has anyone ever even gotten within 100 copies per cartridge that HP represents a cartridge will produce?    Eg, HP suggest 415 copies from a tri color, I got 47.  HP suggests 610 copies from a black cartridge, I got less than 100.  Im not surprised since I read before buying the 7855 printer that it eats ink, but I am surprised that it is such a glutton.

@bill125, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

Do the cartridges show low ink in the ink level monitor, or are they actually running out of ink as evidenced by deteriorating print quality?

 

There are a few things to prevent excess ink usage:

  • The printer should always be plugged into a live outlet.  If you use an external switch such as an outlet switch then more ink will be used at each startup.
  • Do not run cleaning cycles from the computer's toolbox or the printer's front panel.  These are rarely needed (perhaps once for each half dozen cartridges) and will use ink.
  • Printing in Draft mode may have acceptable quality while providing about 2x the pages of Normal or Best modes.  

I hope that answers your concern adequately. Let me know!
